Can you tell me which region of Romania the village of Botosanyi was in in
the period 1869 to 1902. Could you tell me what names in Romania would have
been similar to WEISMAN.
The town name is properly written as "Botosani", the S with a
diacritic that causes it to be pronounced as English SH; the I isn't
pronounced, but palatalizes the preceding N. It was in the Dorohoi

Re: Dupuytren's Contracture - Scandinavian ancestry of German Jews ? #germany

B. Frederics <picturethisfilm@...>
 

Charles,
My Lithuanian-born grandmother developed Duputryn's Contracture and her
hand ended up completely curled into itself. Today there is surgery to correct
it. Medical books do refer to the fact that it is more common among those
of northern European heritage, though not specifically Scandanavian and can
be inherited. As regards possible Scandanavian ancestry I have no idea,
however her father's surname, ADELSON, is a somewhat familiar name in
Scandanavia (spelled ADELSOHN). Regards,

Hello GerSig,

My English ist very bad, I'm sorry but thanks you in advance for your
attention. My Name is Marie de Jong and I live in Munich Germany (since 1974).
I just joined the group. I have been doing genealogy research for 1 year.
I consider myself to be a novice in doing German Jewish Genealogy research.
I live in Munich.
My native language is French and I also know perkekt German , Dutch, and a
little bit of Italian . English is very very difficult for me.

I consider myself expert in using a computer. My experience in using the
Internet is unlimmited.
I have identified the names and birth and death dates of MOYSE of my
grandparents, MOYSE of my great grandparents and MOYSE of my great great
grandparents.

My primary research goals now are to find out: MOYSE - CERF - GOUGUENHEIM - LEVY

Odette MOYSE, born in CHARLEROI (Brussels) in 08.12.1887 , dead at the
02.11.1918 in Uccle (Brussels) ( my gran-gran-mother) His Sister Léa MOYSE ,
born in CHARLEROI 02.11.1884 - seak Information about Léa (marriage,
children, maby deportation ? )

CERF in Arlon ( Belgium) - I 'm searching the Mother of Odette and Léa -
Alice CERF, born in Arlon 30.11.1864 - what did she do after the dead os his
hasband Lucien MOYSE ( in 1890) ? She is coming >from a Butcher-Family, I

Re: JRI-Poland and AGAD-Warsaw are they exactly the same ? #galicia

Mark Halpern
 

Dear Jacqueline and other Galician researchers:

The AGAD records indexed by JRI-Poland are exactly the same as the
collection at AGAD with only one exception. If AGAD has records that are
100 years old or less, JRI-Poland cannot index those records as they are
not in the public domain and are protected by strict Polish privacy
laws. Let me explain.

JRI-Poland and the Polish State Archives have a unique and special
relationship. I think JRI-Poland is the only ethnic genealogy
organization that is allowed to index records in government Archives,
place them in a searchable database on the Internet, and provide an
order system for the public to acquire the underlying records.

I will explain our working relationship with the AGAD Archives, but this
relationship is repeated as other volunteer Archive Coordinators work
with their respective Archives.

JRI-Poland works with a group of Archivists at AGAD, who perform
indexing of Jewish vital records on our behalf. The funds to pay for
this indexing is contributed by generous researchers to JRI-Poland and
subsequently paid to these Archivists. The Archivists are provided with
a set of procedures and templates for creating the indices. Before
indexing of the AGAD collection began, these Archivists created a
detailed inventory of the towns, the records available, and the record
count for each year and each type of record (birth, marriage,death).
Each index file created is first reviewed by the Indexing Team Leader,
an Archivist selected by JRI-Poland for his expertise, and then by
myself before the file is converted and added to the online database.

The original register books are employed to create the indices and each
entry for each year has a unique AKT or record number. This procedure
and the two reviews ensure that all records in a register are actually
indexed.

Now, I am sure there are many researchers who have found "omissions" in
the indexing of their town's records. I am one of those. These are not
really omissions, but expectations that have not been met. I expected to
find the birth index of my grandmother in the 1870 Tarnopol births,
which have been indexed. Her birth record was not there. My further
research determined that my grandmother's birth and those of her sisters
(not her brothers) were all registered on the same day in 1908, the date
of registration of my great grandparent's civil marriage.

My experience of delayed registration of the females in my great
grandparents' family is only one example of why your great uncles and
great aunts birth records may not show up in the Stanislawow indices.
Maybe their births were not registered with the civil authorities. Maybe
they were born in another nearby town. Maybe the birth is registered
under the mother's maiden name and not the father's name. And there are
many more reasons that your fellow genealogists have found for these
"missing" entries.

I can tell you with certainty that the Stanislawow birth records for
1865 through 1873 and 1877 through 1900 are complete and have been
completely indexed. I can also tell you that 1864 and 1874 birth records
appear to be for only a partial year and that 1875 and 1876 birth
records are missing.

JRI-Poland and AGAD are dealing with the same exact records. The
JRI-Poland indices represent 100% of the AGAD collection for the years
shown. The only Jewish vital records in the AGAD collection that have
not been indexed are those that were recently acquired by AGAD and not
yet indexed or those not indexed by JRI-Poland due to lack of funding
for that town's indexing project.

If you ever have a question about the records that have been or will be
indexed by any JRI-Poland Archive project, please contact the Archive
Coordinator or Town Leader for your town's project. These contacts can
be found on our website at two locations. Our Town Index can be accesses
from the homepage at www.jri-poland.org by clicking on "Your town" from
the main menu. The Polish State Archive Project Status Page is found at
http://www.jri-poland.org/psa/status.htm.

Dear Genners,
I appreciate a lot JRI-Poland but I ascertain there are a lot of
omissions
in. I have a lot of great-uncles or great-aunts and cousins who
were born
in Stanislawow (Ivano-Frankovsk) before 1900 and who don't appear in
the
lists of JRI-Poland.
Would the Archives of AGAD in Warsaw be more complete ? Would I get
from
Agad-Warsaw, writing them in Polish,the birth certificates of the
people
missing in JRI-Poland ?
And does any body now why the records of JRI-Poland (and maybe too the
ones
of Agad) are that incomplete ?
