Cassio Tolpolar
 

Dear friends in the US: I'll be spending 2 months in the East Coast presenting Mamaliga Blues' screenings
in Atlanta (12/21), Miami and New York (1/22). If you would like to organize a screening at your
community center or any other place, please let me know. I'd be delighted to help and maybe
even be in person at the event. Thanks!

Russian draft in 1911 #general

David Laskin
 

My paternal grandfather had his trigger finger amputated in order to
avoid the Russian draft in 1911 when he was 21 years old. I'm
wondering how long the term of service was in the Russian army at that
time and whether Jewish conscripts were still treated harshly at that
time. I'm assuming that self-mutilation for the purpose of draft
avoidance was illegal -- so presumably it would have been difficult
for him to find a doctor to perform this operation? I'd appreciate
hearing >from anyone with knowledge of this subject. Thanks. David

Military Conscription in Russian Empire followup #ukraine

Barry Helfand <barry_helfand@...>
 

A family assumption is that my grandfather, Yehuda Yankel Ziskroyt, was born December
15, 1870. His Military Record indicates that he was drafted on November 4, 1890
according to universal conscription and began his active duty on January 1,
1891. If the 1874 regulation about a male being age 20 on January 1 of the year
he was eligible for the draft was still in force in 1890, then my grandfather
had to be born in 1869 not 1870. I am trying to determine if the 1874
regulation had changed prior to 1890 and, if so, what was the change. The
answer will help determine my grandfather's year of birth.

Yizkor Book Project, October 2014 #rabbinic

Lance Ackerfeld <lance.ackerfeld@...>
 

Shalom,

As with quite a few of my recent Yizkor Book Project reports, once again, I
am able to announce the very gratifying news that yet another Yizkor Book
has now been completely translated and appears online. This time the project
which has reached this lofty goal is: Klobuck, Poland (The Book of
Klobucko; in memory of a martyred community which was destroyed) which was
adeptly coordinated by Allan Mantel and the riveting translations it
contains were prepared by Asher Szmulewicz and Gloria Berkenstat Freund.
Kudos to you all!

I was going to categorize what happened in the Yizkor Book Project during
October as the "Ukrainian Invasion" but realized that the term has already
been used... The reason I wanted to emphasize Ukraine is because I wanted to
point out the very large number of updates made relating to Ukrainian
communities during this past month. In particular ten new entries were added
from the Pinkas Hakehillot Poland (Encyclopedia of Jewish Communities in
Poland) for Ukrainian communities and I wish to thank Ron Doctor, Ellen
Garshick and the Kremenets District Research Group for being the driving
forces behind this welcome initiative.

For those of you who aren't familiar, the Yad Vashem museum in Israel
published a very large series of Pinkas Hakehillot (community
encyclopedias) presenting details of a huge number of communities which had
a large or small Jewish presence within them before the Holocaust. As such,
these volumes do present us with unique information on communities that
might not have been covered in any Yizkor book and hence, their importance
to us. I have pleased to see that more and more people are taking interest
in these volumes and if you are contemplating in sponsoring or translating
any of the articles >from these encyclopedias, please contact me and I will
assist in facilitating their translation.

Now to facts and figures for October.

And if you know anyone who was >from Molchad please let me know who they

Appeal: Seeking SIMONOWITZ, Alfred #germany

Alexander Watson <a.watson.genas@...>
 

Hello,
My name is Alexander Watson, I live in Genas in France.
For over a year, I have been searching for information about

SIMONOWITZ or SIMONOWICZ, Alfred Simon Henry Georg
Born in Tilsit, East Prussia, between 5 March and 20 May 1922.

I believe that this man either hid during the war or was deported to
Theresienstadt in 1945. I believe that he survived Nazi persecution
and went to live in New York after the war. He might have changed his
name to Henry SERGEVICH.

I have written many times to Jewish Community organisations in New
York over the past year, none have replied.
I posted a similar request on this site at the beginning of the
summer, I had some responses but nothing allowing me to identify this
man. I have been in contact with the USHMM about him, there is quite
alot of genealogical research material and correspondance between him
and Henry Richter in the files of the Leo Baeck Institute.
There is a very slight hope that this person is still alive.

I would be grateful for any further help that you might be able to give me.

and Henry Richter in the files of the Leo Baeck Institute.
There is a very slight hope that this person is still alive.

I would be grateful for any further help that you might be able to give me.

"Miriam Weiner lists Jagielnica births for 1817-1859 in the Lwow
archives. Does anyone have information about access or indexing?"

Gesher Galicia has indexed these birth records, which can be searched
for free on the All Galicia Database (AGD):
http://search.geshergalicia.org

We also have a 1896 birth index available.

We also have scans of the original records, which can be viewed by
making a qualified donation to the Galician Archival Records Project
for that town.

Info here: http://www.geshergalicia.org/projects/garp/

One can also order the LDS microfilm to Family History Centers
worldwide -- although not in Israel, unfortunately. All Jewish vital
record registers held in the Lviv archive, and mentioned on Miriam
Weiner's site, have been microfilmed by the Mormons, although we have
not yet indexed all of them.

Milton Koch is the town leader for Jagielnica.

To find out if records have been indexed by Gesher Galicia, just visit
the AGD page and scroll to the "Record Sources" section on the left
hand side. If you want to fund a new indexing project, contact me
privately.
