(Belgium-Netherlands) New Website with Belgian Refugees to Netherlands During World War I #general

Jan Meisels Allen
 

A new database is available in beta-testing on Belgian refugees to the
Netherlands I the First World War http://vluchtelingen1914-1918.org/ .
There are over 20,000 names in the database which is in Dutch and French,
and for those who desire translation, it is best to open the site on the
Chrome browser which offers translation or to use a translation site such
as translate: https://translate.google.com. You can search by name-use
the spelling as it was in Belgium, or by place of birth, marriage, death,
origin and destination. Not all of these attributes are known to all in
the database. Wildcards * are permitted.

Than you to Yvette Hoitnik and her blog "Dutch Genealogy" for informing us
about this new website.

AGOLNICK family-USA-Descendants of Rabbi David of Novarodok #general

Yonatan Ben-Ari
 

Many years ago in my search for a family connection with a Rabbi
David ,(a.k.a. "Galia Mesechta") the Rabbi of Novarodok during the
18th cent. I was contacted by an AGOLNICK family (either of Baltimore
or Boston) who are descendants of the above Rabbi and who have their
own family tree.

If someone >from the AGOLNICK family reads this post, or anyone else
who has information of the above Rabbi David, I would like to be in
contact directly.

...

After looking through the FTJP I did find that the GOLNICK family
(sometimes spelled with an "a") are were >from Boston and originated
from Novagrudok. Also interesting that one of their female ancestress
was a RABINOWITZ as per Rabbi David's son's-in-law family name.

Rochelle Gershenow
 

A few years ago a cousin of my mother's mentioned that there were cousins
living in Coney Island who had twin daughters. I believe I've identified
them but have been unable to locate any grandchildren of this family. The
following is the information I've gathered on this family.

Elias b. b. 1887 or 9/20/1888 (on WWII Draft Registration Card and on US
Social Security Applications and Claims Index, 1936-2007) d. 1/13/1957
buried in New Montefiore Cemetery, NY -- >from Stoltsby, Russia. His parents
Morris and Anna Rakin (>from marriage information). Ida died11/24/1972
buried in New Montefiore.
1920 Census -- lived on 1302 Gates Ave., Brooklyn. They both came to US in
1905. He was a waist operator.

1905; she in 1907. He was a tailor in a coat factory.
1940 Census – living in same place. Naturalized. Tailor in coat factory.
Ida owner of a beauty parlor. Beatrice and Miriam living with them.
Beatrice a beautician.

Children:

Helen and Jack buried in Vista Verde Memorial Park, Rio Rancho, Sandoval,
New Mexico

Beatrice b. 2/15/1916 d. 2/1997?

To look at chromosome data >from Ancestry, you can download the raw

chromosome browser (on specific matches).

There are also sites that do chromosome analysis for low or no cost,
such as Promethease.com and CodeGen.eu.

Gesher Galicia appeal for research projects #galicia

Gesher Galicia SIG
 

Gesher Galicia has an ambitious research program for 2018 comprising
seven projects. [See: <https://tinyurl.com/y7daagtz>.] We have already
been actively raising funds for some of these, including the 2018
Vital Records and Josephine & Franciscan Cadastral Surveys projects.

Gesher Galicia is now appealing for donations to three of our other
research projects for 2018. Some supporters have already kindly made
donations to these projects, but we do need significantly more funds
to carry them out fully and successfully. They are as follows.

1. The Holocaust Project
- Coordinator: Michal Majewski - Research support needed (2018): $7,000.
Holocaust-period records >from Galician towns available in state and other
archives in Poland and Ukraine tend to be either vital records, or else
Jewish community records or municipal records that shed light on life in
the occupied towns.

In the project for 2018, we will be transcribing a number of books of vital
records, or index books of vital records, >from six towns in western Galicia.
Apart >from that, we are focusing mainly on "life in the occupied towns" in
(mainly) western Galicia. These records include lists of Jewish town or
ghetto residents, registration cards, detailed records >from two towns of
forced labor, recipients of food ration coupons, and other special or
unusual records >from the Holocaust period. For more information, please
see: <https://tinyurl.com/ybv648te>.

2. The Galician Medical Students/Doctors Project
- Coordinator: Andrew Zalewski - Research support needed (2018): $3,200.
from an early period, Jewish medical practitioners moved across societal
and geographical borders. In this genealogical project, a database of
Galician medical students and graduates (1784-1918) is being created,
including information about parents, occupations, and home towns. This
will be supplemented with annotations >from non-academic records
(relating, for instance, to the town and type of medical practice, and
military service).

The first stage of the project will concentrate on the universities in
Krakow (Jagiellonian) and Lemberg/Lwow, as well as Pest and Prague
universities outside Galicia, and the Galician Jews who attended them.
This will provide data on some 2,000-3,000 Jews >from Galicia. After the
2018 stage is complete, the database will be extended to the universities
in Vienna and elsewhere in the Habsburg realm. For more information,
please see: <https://tinyurl.com/y8jn62dw>.

3. The Fond 424 Project
- Coordinator: Laura Zaki - Research support needed: $3,000.
Fond 424 is a collection of almost 200 files of Jewish materials held at
AGAD in Warsaw, most of them >from eastern Galicia. It contains vital
records (like the much larger Fond 300), but in loose, certificate form, as
well as sets of non-vital records of the Jewish community, such as
financial accounts.

In this project for 2018, Gesher Galicia will scan around 130 of the files
in Fond 424, including all those considered useful for genealogical
research. None of the files in Fond 424 have previously been microfilmed
or digitized. We will also upload to the All Galicia Database all the files
already indexed in this fond (some of them recently updated), as well as
some 20 further files that will be indexed. For more information, please
see: <https://tinyurl.com/ydcv6bvv>.


All donations to these (and our other) projects will be greatly welcomed.
As always, we cannot guarantee in advance whether the original records
will be complete or whether the will contain information of interest to a
particular donor.

Donations by credit card or PayPal may be made online, through the
"Donate" button at the top right-hand corner of the Gesher Galicia home
page, or directly to <http://www.geshergalicia.org/donate/>. On this page,
please go to one or more of the donation strips at the bottom, labeled
"Holocaust Project", "Medical Students/Doctors Project", and "Fond 424
Project".

You may also pay by check, again indicating on the check which project
or projects the donation is for. Instructions for paying by check can be
found at the bottom of the "Donate" web page.


For further information, please contact: <info@...>.
Please do NOT reply to this email.

research projects for 2018. Some supporters have already kindly made
donations to these projects, but we do need significantly more funds
to carry them out fully and successfully. They are as follows.

1. The Holocaust Project
- Coordinator: Michal Majewski - Research support needed (2018): $7,000.
Holocaust-period records >from Galician towns available in state and other
archives in Poland and Ukraine tend to be either vital records, or else
Jewish community records or municipal records that shed light on life in
the occupied towns.

In the project for 2018, we will be transcribing a number of books of vital
records, or index books of vital records, >from six towns in western Galicia.
Apart >from that, we are focusing mainly on "life in the occupied towns" in
(mainly) western Galicia. These records include lists of Jewish town or
ghetto residents, registration cards, detailed records >from two towns of
forced labor, recipients of food ration coupons, and other special or
unusual records >from the Holocaust period. For more information, please
see: <https://tinyurl.com/ybv648te>.

2. The Galician Medical Students/Doctors Project
- Coordinator: Andrew Zalewski - Research support needed (2018): $3,200.
from an early period, Jewish medical practitioners moved across societal
and geographical borders. In this genealogical project, a database of
Galician medical students and graduates (1784-1918) is being created,
including information about parents, occupations, and home towns. This
will be supplemented with annotations >from non-academic records
(relating, for instance, to the town and type of medical practice, and
military service).

The first stage of the project will concentrate on the universities in
Krakow (Jagiellonian) and Lemberg/Lwow, as well as Pest and Prague
universities outside Galicia, and the Galician Jews who attended them.
This will provide data on some 2,000-3,000 Jews >from Galicia. After the
2018 stage is complete, the database will be extended to the universities
in Vienna and elsewhere in the Habsburg realm. For more information,
please see: <https://tinyurl.com/y8jn62dw>.

3. The Fond 424 Project
- Coordinator: Laura Zaki - Research support needed: $3,000.
Fond 424 is a collection of almost 200 files of Jewish materials held at
AGAD in Warsaw, most of them >from eastern Galicia. It contains vital
records (like the much larger Fond 300), but in loose, certificate form, as
well as sets of non-vital records of the Jewish community, such as
financial accounts.

In this project for 2018, Gesher Galicia will scan around 130 of the files
in Fond 424, including all those considered useful for genealogical
research. None of the files in Fond 424 have previously been microfilmed
or digitized. We will also upload to the All Galicia Database all the files
already indexed in this fond (some of them recently updated), as well as
some 20 further files that will be indexed. For more information, please
see: <https://tinyurl.com/ydcv6bvv>.


All donations to these (and our other) projects will be greatly welcomed.
As always, we cannot guarantee in advance whether the original records
will be complete or whether the will contain information of interest to a
particular donor.

Donations by credit card or PayPal may be made online, through the
"Donate" button at the top right-hand corner of the Gesher Galicia home
page, or directly to <http://www.geshergalicia.org/donate/>. On this page,
please go to one or more of the donation strips at the bottom, labeled
"Holocaust Project", "Medical Students/Doctors Project", and "Fond 424
Project".

You may also pay by check, again indicating on the check which project
or projects the donation is for. Instructions for paying by check can be
found at the bottom of the "Donate" web page.
