provided an array of records that go beyond traditional metrical documents
to demonstrate different ways to expand your family research, and to Michael
Berkowicz, >from the Museum of the History of Polish Jews, for his

Nowy Sacz, Poland - Additional 3035 Birth records now indexed - not online #galicia

Debbie Raff
 

Jewish Records Indexing-Poland is pleased to announce the indexing
of an additional 3035 Nowy Sacz Birth records for the years 1894-1902.

Together with the birth and marriage records completed in August, we
now have completed indexing more than 6200 entries for the years:

Births: 1854, 1878-1880, 1890-1892, 1994-1905
Marriages: 1882, 1903-1905

There are about 2300 different surnames in this data.
A list of 160 surnames appearing 14 or more times in all currently
available indices is at the end of this message:

Following the transfer of the Nowy Sacz registers >from the town
Civil Records Office to the Nowy Sacz Archives, JRI-Poland
undertook to index the records spanning 1854 to 1905. The
initial two groups of years have now been indexed and data
entry is continuing full speed ahead on the balance of the project.

While the first group of records are already online, and copies may
be ordered by utilizing the JRI-Poland Order Processing System,
new years of data, will not be posted online until the project is fully
funded.

In order to be able to share the new data with Nowy Sacz researchers,
the Qualifying Contribution for the project has been set at $100.

While donations of any size are greatly appreciated, researchers
making a contribution of no less than $100 will be eligible to obtain
an Excel file with indices to all the Nowy Sacz Jewish vital records
currently in the Nowy Sacz Branch of the Polish State Archives.
We expect there will be about 18,000 to 20,000 entries.

Contributions to JRI-Poland are tax-deductible for US and Canadian
taxpayers. Please label your donation for the "Nowy Sacz Indexing
Project".

Credit card (VISA and MasterCard) donations can be telephoned

I am interested in all details of information in these documents but will
certainly appreciate any efforts which are made.

Re: Immigration to USA via Canada #general

Alan Greenberg
 

The passenger lists have recently been put online at
http://www.collectionscanada.ca/archivianet/passenger/index-e.html.
They are not indexed by name, but if you know the date (or at least
the year), it should be easy to find your GGPs - the port of Montreal
was closed in the winter, so each ship only docked there 4-6 times a year.

Moreover, if you know (or once you know) the ship arrival date, there
were separate manifests filled out for all passengers who said they
were US-bound. These manifests tend to be more complete than the
Canadian manifests (which list all passengers regardless of
destination). The manifests are included in the St. Alban's lists.
Note that I am not referring to the St. Alban's card index, but the
full manifests that they point to. Although in theory, the index
SHOULD include all passengers who are in the manifests, there are
examples where they are missing. But with the name of the ship and
date, you can go directly to the manifest.

VM8692-3: translation of Galician tombstone #general

hekenvin@...
 

I have had a photograph of my great-grandfather's grave in Skala
(now Ukraine) for several years. We recently discovered that the
tombstones in the Jewish cemetery in Skala have inscriptions on both sides.
A tourist who visited the cemetery last month brought me photographs of
the reverse side of the tombstone of my great-grandfather,
Hersh Eliyah Wiesenthal (Tsvi Eliyahu ben Yosef Aryeh), after whom
I am named.

On Viewmate, there are two photographs of the reverse side: an overview
and a close-up. I can read my great-grandfather's name in Hebrew, but
not the rest. I would be grateful if someone would tell me what the
inscription says. The viewmate addresses are:
