Kozy, Poland Galicia #austria-czech

Faye Hirsty
 

Dear SIG members,

Does anyone have suggestions for how and which town to search for
birth and/or marriage records for Wolf KRANZ born in Kozy, Poland Galicia?
It was suggested that I search in a nearby town. My grandfather spoke Yiddish, German and
probably Hebrew. He had a salami factory in Austria and later lived
in Ungvar, Hungary. He did not speak Polish. He was born in 1876.

I would appreciate any suggestions.

Cemetery in Pilsen #austria-czech

rob.pearman@...
 

I am seeking to contact Elizabeth Margosches who, according to information
from the Jewish Cemetery Project, undertook a survey of the Pilsen Cemetery
in 1996. A that time, Elizabeth was living in Alexandria, Virgina USA. If Elizabeth
or anyone reading this can provide me with a current
address or email or pass this message onwards to her, I would be most grateful
as I plan to visit that cemetery and make as many records as time allows beginning
with the families that are at the centre of my research. I am keen to avoid duplication of effort.

Thanks if anyone can assist.

KNIEZNIK/OGUVCAK of SEVEDNIE #austria-czech

pinardpr@...
 

Dear Kerri,

Are you quite sure about the spelling Sevednie?

I could not find anything named Sevednie. There is a Serednje, which lies about halfway between Mukacevo
and Uzhorod in the former Czechoslovak province of Podkapartska Rus, now part of Ukraine. It would have
been part of Hungary prior to 1918. Might this be the place?

I also found two places not far away >from there called Serednie Wielkie and Serednie Male -- which lie in
the picturesque mountainous southeastern-most tip of Poland next to the border with Ukraine and
Slovakia. Both would have been part of the Austrian Crownland of Galicia (Galizien, Galicja) prior to 1918.

Much of the population in these areas was Ukrainian- or Rusinian-speaking, which would seem to
correspond well to the form of the name Oguvcak.

Best,

Rick Pinard

ViewMate: Another Translation - SZMUZIK Birth Date #general

Joan
 

My friend asks if someone would post another translation of this Viewmate
image in the hope it would clarify the date of registration of the birth
versus the day the child was actually born.

This image came >from the LDS microfilm for Zuromin, Poland. This is the
birth record of Mordka Lajb SZMUZIK(SMUZIK), son of Szlama Josek Szmuzik and
Ruchla Laia SZYMKOW, and it was recorded in 1865. She has other birth
records where the date of birth was much prior to the date of registration
so I'm curious to know if this birth record has two very different dates
also. Your help with the translation is very much appreciated!

http://www.jewishgen.org/viewmate/responselist.asp?key=20695

Someone did respond to my previous post about this family and provided a
translation. But there is a contradiction in the dates. The poster suggested
she get a second opinion. According to what's been translated, the date of
registration precedes the date of birth so there must be come confusion on
the years.

Please post your response on the Viewmate form.

Thanks you,

Ukraine SIG Board: Ariel Parkansky is our new Website Manager #general

Ronald D. Doctor <rondoctor@...>
 

I am pleased to announce the appointment of Ariel Parkansky as the new
Website Manager for Ukraine SIG. Ariel will manage the re-structuring of
our website as well as day-to-day maintenance and updating tasks. Here
is his biography.

Ariel is an Information Technology professional. He brings his professional
and managerial skills to Ukraine SIG.

Ariel recently became Ukraine SIGs Odessa Town Leader. In addition, he is
responsible for the Odessa KehilaLinks website which he has completely
restructured. He is adding significant new data and other content to the
KehilaLinks website, including translations of various Odessa Directories.
Before becoming Odessa Town Leader, he organized a project to collect,
translate, and publish Odessa vital records obtained by individual
researchers. Previously, he was part of the project for the "Museum of the
Jewish Colonies" website in Argentina.

Ariel began researching his family roots in the late 1990s and later added
his wife's family to his research. His family comes originally >from
Bessarabia and Ukraine. They immigrated to Argentina at the turn of the
20th century. He grew up in Buenos Aires and has lived in Paris, France
since 2003.

His family "forest" numbers 1,550 individuals of whom about 700 are living
today in 18 different countries on 4 continents. His family genealogy
website contains more than 700 pictures and documents going back in some
cases to the 17th century. You can visit it at www.thefamilytree.com.ar

Ariel has developed a rough timeline for completing the Website
Restructuring Project. Our goal is to complete the project by mid-January.
Please bear with us as work progresses on this Project, and please let me
know if you have any problems with the website during the Restructuring.
