Book; History of the Jews in Zagreb. Croatia. #hungary

ezwieback@...
 

I recently received a new book about the history (the last 200 years) of
the Jews in Zagreb. Croatia.
It contains mostly historical photos of all aspects of Jewish life;
leaders, talents, participants and places. Many of the photos have
detailed captions. It has many historical group photos with names but,
alas, no index.
Published by AGM, Zagreb, in 2011; 191 pages, ISBN 9789531743938.
Format size 14 cm wide x 25 cm. tall.

Inmate #general

Jim Gutterman
 

Imagine those in the know likely already recognize this one, but for those like me
who didn't...Looking up my mggm in 1940 census, knowing that she had been widowed
since the prior census. Found her indexed by ancestry, but listed as "inmate"
Obviously, somewhat taken aback, seemed quite unlikely and nobody in family had
mentioned, not that they would. Anyway, in looking at the actual census page,
seemed like a lot of the other inmates were also in their 70s and80s.On closer
inspection, she was in some sort of either nursing home or Jewish residency for the
elderly. Kind of antiquated use of term, but mentioning it just to make people aware.

Kudos to all. A huge MAZEL TOV and thanks you's beyond imagination! A
fabulous job so appreciated by hundreds (thousands?) of researchers now and
in future generations to come!
Now, time for me to see if my donations are up to date!

From: Dorfleiv@aol.com

X-Message-Number: 1

A milestone has been reached and for us, it is a momentous occasion.
LitvakSIG has completed the translation of ALL known vital records for
the KAUNAS GUBERNIA with the exception of the post 1911 birth records
which were not filmed . We cannot translate later birth records due to
the 100 year privacy law. For some towns, the 1912 - 1914 birth
records were filmed by the Mormons and we were able to translate
those records.

This includes shtetls in the districts of Kaunas, Panevezys, Raseiniai,
Sauliai, Telsiai, Ukmerge and Zarasai. Spreadsheets for these records
can be found on the relevant district research group sites. Many but
not all are already on the All Lithuania Database and the balance will
be available on the ALD in about 18 months time.

Just to remind you - the LitvakSIG Vital Records Translation (VRT)
Project focuses on translating the 19th and early 20th century
Lithuanian Jewish Communities' vital records (birth, marriage, death
and divorce records) that were microfilmed by the Latter Day Saints
(LDS) and has been extended to include vital records that were not
microfilmed as well.

The Vital Records Project began in 2000 and is organized by Gubernia:
(i)Kovno (Kaunas) Guberniya, (ii) Vilna (Vilnius) Gubernia, and(iii)
Suwalki Guberniya. Although Kaunas is for the time being complete,
there is still work to be done on Vilnius and Suwalki translations.

There are so very many people to thank for their efforts in making
this announcement possible: the volunteers who coordinated the
fundraising and translation work and those who have the skills and
gave their time to undertake some of the translation work. Thank you
to the many contributors who have funded this collective success. As
time passes, we will be able to translate the post 1920 births and
hope you will support us in that effort. This is a collective
endeavour and we all share in its achievement.

We hope you find your ancestors in these records but are very well
aware that many years are missing, having been destroyed in fire and
war or simply lost. So do not forget that the work of the District
Research Groups on many types of lists goes on with your support and
these are often the only sources for you to find the information you seek.
