Galician Military Records photographed by the LDS #austria-czech

Thomas F. Weiss
 

Dear Fellow JGenners,

It had been widely assumed that the military records of Galician
soldiers serving in the Austro-Hungarian Army were sent to the successor
states at the end of World War I and then lost. In fact, the War
Archives in Vienna has the following statement on its website.
"Galicia: Registration sheets of officers who joined the Polish army in
1918. Most of the registration sheets of draftees >from Galicia (Southern
Poland, Western Ukraine) has been destroyed (Centralne Archivwum
Wojskowe, PL-00910 Warszawa-Rembert=F3w)" from

http://oesta.gv.at/site/6413/default.aspx


Thus I was very surprised by Alex Feller's post on November 26, 2011,
which is as follows.

"The Family History Library has microfilms of military records for
various towns in Galicia >from the period of 1865- 1930. The originals
are located in fond 780 at the Central State Historical Archives in
Lviv, Ukraine. The link to this record group on the FHL website is

<https://www.familysearch.org/search/catalog/show?uri=3Dhttp%3A%2F%2Fcatalog-search-api%3A8080%2Fwww-catalogapi-webservice%2Fitem%2F1713234>

I found the above note >from Alex encouraging and have investigated the 8
films in the collection that is listed as corresponding to surnames
beginning with the letter F.

Here are my general conclusions:

(1) The film notes do not indicate what is covered by each film.

(2) Each film is organized in labeled sections, i.e. the labels are
contained on the film.

(3) Each labeled section is organized into unlabeled subsections
corresponding to the birth year of the conscript.

(4) Within these unlabeled subsections, the surnames are listed mostly
alphabetically.

(5) There may be multiple subsections for the same birth year scattered
among the films, sometimes these subsections adjoin.

(6) There does not appear to be any obvious order to the birth years.

(7) There are many WWI records.

(8) There are quite a few records out of place. There are even a few
records with surnames starting with letters other than F.

(9) The military records are heterogeneous and include at least the =
following:

Auskunftsbogen
Auszug aus dem Belebungsprotokolle
Dienstzettel
Entlassungsschein
Fehlkarte faulty card
Grundbuchblatt
Haupt-Grundbuchblatt
Konduiteliste
Kopfzettel
Landsturmevidenzblatt
Landsturmlegitimationsblatt
Persons- und MeldeNachweis
Schussblatt
Stammblatt
Strafprotokoll-Auszug
Testimonium mortis
Todten-schein
Unterabteilungs-Grundbuchblatt
Vormerkblatt
Vormerkblatt fuer die Qualifikationsbeschreibung
Vormerkblatt ueber Kranke in Heilanstatten

The following is specific information on the 8 films for surnames
beginning with F. Except where stated otherwise, all the subsections
correspond to surnames beginning with the letter F. Each subsection
corresponds to a particular birth year within which the surnames are
arranged more or less alphabetically. These subsections vary in length
from just a few records to many dozens.

Section 4 - names beginning with C

My experience - I tried to find the military records of my
grandfather. I did not find them. I concluded that they might be
misfiled in one of the 8 films I examined fairly carefully or they might
be in a film that is listed as being for surnames other than those
beginning with the letter F. So to be sure to find your relative, I
think you have to look at all the records for all the letters to be
sure. This is a gigantic task. I spent 15 hours searching the 8 films
for the letter F.

Happy hunting,

appreciated. It's in German Gothic script so someone who is comfortable
reading that should have no problem. It is on ViewMate here:

Re: RENSDBURG-DELLEVIE #germany

Micheline GUTMANN
 

Of course, the LEVY family of Rendsburg chose in Hamburg the name of the
city where they came from, It is frequent.

In order to solve Alan's problem concerning the family RENSBURG-DELLEVIE,
I think it could be interesting to note at Altona-Hamburg cemetery,
For the name RENDSBURG a person more interesting than the others:
Gelle Rachel b. Kusel LEVI 22 Si 522 (13/06/1762)
In the different documents I have >from RENDSBURG (Rabbi E. Gukesz story of
Rendsburg, List of the cemetery), it is possible to find this Kusel,
and other members of the family as his father Isaac, son of
Mattityahu LEVY, who was the parnass of the community.

3801 East Mercer Way; Mercer Island WA 98040

ABOUT OUR PROGRAM:
Ron Doctor will discuss his efforts to make the JewishGen Ukraine Special
Interest Group (SIG) more relevant to researchers. He'll describe the SIG's
new town-centered organization and the projects the SIG is developing to
improve Jewish Ukrainian research. He'll discuss how you can learn the names
of your ancestral towns and find old country data that may help you research
your ancestors. You will see examples of some of the records that are
available, including vital records and revision lists (censuses). Records
like these have enabled Ron to extend his direct ancestral lines back to the
early 1700s. This is a must-see presentation if you have any possible
ancestry >from Ukraine.

Group and President of the Kremenets District Research Group. Ron

Mark, I looked for the name Apfelberg in France, I don't know if what I
found can help.

There is a Sam Apfelberg who was authorized to live in France in 1908.

On www.geneaservice.com I found an Amelie Apfelberg married between 1903 and
1912. She was the daughter of Joseph and Rosa Jacosohn.

They also have a file concerning a Sam Apfelberg, born 02/02/1869
an other for an Adram Apfelberg.

But I could not see more, because one have to pay to access the files.

There was only 2 children with this name born in France between 1916 and
1940, They were born in the department of Somme.

And I could find only 1 in today phone book: it is a R. Apfelberg, living in
Amiens department of Somme.

Hi - Thanks for everybody that replied! I was told that there is a
likely naturalization record for the Aplfeberg that I'm looking for. If
anyone is going to the archives in the near future, and can look at this
record for me, I would you very much appreciate it. Thanks. - Mark
