IAJGS Paris Conference: ROHATYN BoF Meeting July 15, 2012 #poland

Marla Raucher Osborn <osborn@...>
 

Dzien dobry, bonjour, and hello, For all those with family or historic
connections to this former Galician town, today located in western
Ukraine, an hour's drive >from Lviv, just a reminder that I will be
hosting a Rohatyn BoF meeting at the upcoming IAJGS Conference in
Paris on: Sunday, July 15, 2012 at 3:30 p.m Room: Louis Armstrong A&B.

I will be presenting slides >from my dozen or so trips to Rohatyn
in 2011 and 2012 while living in Lviv, and while the meeting is
scheduled to nominally last one hour, I will be happy to remain
longer to meet with those that wish to learn more about the town,
the Rohatyn Shtetl Research Group (founded by Dr. Alex Feller with
over 150 members worldwide today), and the many on-going projects
undertaken within the town to discover and preserve what remains
of Rohatyn's former Jewish community.

The topics I will discuss include the Jewish headstone recovery
project in town, the Jewish paper scraps >from the Nazi occupation
period found last year during the renovation of a former ghetto building,
buildings still existing today with Jewish historic significance,
local connections and contacts, and sadly, last month's visit:
the unexpected discovery of the remains of 12 individuals in a crawl
space located below the Ukrainian Church apparently dating >from the War.

I will also make available to those that attend several handouts,
including my foreign research resources and contacts.

Hope to see many of you there!

Warm regards,

elected or "court" rabbis and draftee lists for Kretinga #lithuania

Howard Margol
 

<< From: rachel rachel <rachel_rachel9@hotmail.com>
Does anyone know of draftee lists for in or near KRETINGA?
Or a list of names of those who avoided the draft and thus
their family or village had to pay a fine?

Also would anyone know how to locate the names of elected
(or court/crown) rabbis? >>

I suggest you contribute $100 to Litvak SIG and gain access to all of the
records on the Telsiai District Research Group (DRG) web site, including
Kretinga. You will see there a short list of men who avoided the draft in
1914. In the KAU-GUB section you will see many lists of draftees for various
years. The site also includes many other types of records including vital
records.

To contribute, go to www.litvaksig.org/contribute Scroll down to District
Research and select Telsiai. You can use your credit card as the site is
secure. At the end of the month, the Litvak SIG Treasurer will notify Jill
Anderson, the Telsiai District Coordinator, and she will invite you to
access the web site.

While there, you may want to contribute $36 and become a member of Litvak
SIG. This will allow you to access the Members Only web site which contains
a lot of valuable information that can help in your research.

If you contact me at homargol@aol.com and not to the digest, I will send
you an article about Official State Rabbis.

Vienna records #austria-czech

henry.kelwel@...
 

According to the LDS catalog they have 398 microfilms as part of the
Jewish Vienna collection. Among the titles of these microfilms are the
following:

Proklamationen (15 microfilms) Does anyone know what this is?
Versohnungsbuch (2 films) What is this?
Scheidungsbuch (4 films, this would be interesting)
Ubergetretene (6 films, that is also very interesting)
Geburtsanzeigen (Very many films)
I think there may be also other films apart >from the BMD records

My question is: Are the films mentioned above now on the internet?

Helen PIASETSKY arrival #general

Paul Silverstone
 

During the 1930s, Helen PIASETSKY, daughter of my grandfather's sister,
visited New York >from China, and stayed with relatives in Brooklyn.
She preferred China, and returned there before the outbreak of war.

She was born in 1914 in Makow, Poland. In Shanghai she married Henry
GARBATY, and they had a daughter Evelyn who was born in 1940.

The Garbaty family arrived in San Francisco in 1947 as stateless persons.
My problem is that I can find no record of her arriving in the US in the
1930s. I have looked at passenger lists on the West coast. I would
appreciate suggestions as to where else I might look.

She was the daughter of Moses Piasetsky and Eva Chrzan who left Makow,
after WWI, and went to Harbin during the 1920s with their family.

<From: Allan Jordan Aejordan@aol.com
I need some help or direction on finding my family in Russia and
specifically it seems what is modern day Lithuania.
Best guess of a deciphered passenger list is that I should be looking in
the region of Zidikai, Lithuania.>

Zidikai was in the Telsiai District of Lithuania. I strongly urge you to
join the Litvak SIG Telsiai District Research Group (DRG). On their web
site, you will find a wealth of records for Zidikai as well as for other towns
in the district. Many of the records have not been added to the database on
Jewishgen as yet since there is an 18 month delay after the records are
translated. However, they are available on the Telsiai DRG web site as soon
as they are translated.

To learn how to join the Telsiai DRG, and access the web site, please

Re: Israeli Immigration Records #general

A great uncle of mine left Poland just before World War II, joined our
family in NYC, and then, sometime around 1947-48, left New York and
joined his daughter in Israel.

His Israeli grandchildren believe their grandfather immigrated right around
the time of Israeli independence but they do not know the date. Does
anyone any have ideas of how I could locate this great uncle's records -- either
records of his departure >from the US (he was in the States on a tourist visa
which, I believe, he converted into an immigration visa in 1945 or so) or
records of his arrival in Israel? Thanks.

Another 1940 Census Question #general

MERYL RIZZOTTI
 

Hello Genners:
Regarding the 1940 census questions. I was Indexing the New York Census for
FamilySearch and I came across one of those sheets that was left by the
enumerator for the family to complete. The page was not numbered so I had to
leave the section for page number and letter blank.

Were those pages included in the final census or were they only meant to
be used by the enumerator to fill in page 61A or 81A when they went back to
pick up the page.

The instructions on the top of the page said this was to be filled out in
before the enumerator met with them.

After having my yDNA done at FTDNA and posted on ysearch.org I sent
e-mails to possible matches that were also posted. There were no
replies. There was nothing to indicate the addresses were no longer
valid. It would be nice if posters would respond whether or not
there was any connection.
