New and Updated Databases on IGRA Website #general

Elena Bazes
 

The Israel Genealogy Research Association (IGRA) has just released new
and updated databases on its website.

New Databases

1) Medical Practitioners

This database, published by the Department of Health, includes a list
of over 4,500 medical practitioners-doctors, pharmacists, dentists and
midwives, >from 1946, who were licensed during the British Mandate in
Palestine. In addition to names, the database includes the
practitioners' profession, license number and address. The database
not only lists practitioners living in Palestine (both Jews and
Arabs), but also includes British practitioners serving in Palestine,
Transjordan, Lebanon, Syria and other countries in the Middle East.

2) Ra'anana School Lists

This database lists over 3,800 students who attended school in the
City of Ra'anana >from 1938-1947.

Updated Databases

1) ATS Volunteers World War II

Over 2,000 additional names have been added to this database of
volunteers in the Auxiliary Territorial Service (ATS), the women's
branch of the British Army during World War II.

2) Marriages Certificates 1927-1948

Over 4,600 certificates have been added to this database. These
certificates were issued during the British Mandate to those
requesting copies of their certificates. The certificates include both
old and new names (first and last), nationality and address. Some
include information about parents. This is not a list of certificates
issued by the Rabbinate.

Wer einmal war, Georg Gaugusch #austria-czech

Traude Triebel
 

We have waited five years, with bated breath, for this to happen. And
finally, it's ready: on 24 November 2016, Volume II of Georg Gaugusch's
monumental work, Those Who Once Were. Vienna's Upper Class Jewish Society
1800-1938 (Wer einmal war. Das juedische Grossburgertum Wiens 1800-1938)
will be presented.
We first put together the Index of Names comprising far more than 34,000
documented personal identifications which we provide to you here
exclusively. In addition, all town names have also been included and
properly assigned. In pop-up information fields (for family name, first
name, page and town) all the indicated data can be viewed at a glance or
scrolled through, thus providing not only the advantage of gaining a quicker
and more comprehensive overview of the whole mass of data, but also helping
to avoid empty searches which bring up no results

The town Ternitz, Austria. #austria-czech

דוד נ.א.
 

Hello
I am looking for information about the town Ternitz, Austria.
Which documents can be found there >from 1850 to 1950?
What is a Jewish cemetery near there? Where the Ternitz's Jews were buried ?

Thank you
David Nesher

GenTeam new search feature #austria-czech

E. Randol Schoenberg
 

A great development on GenTeam.at. You can now search for parents in
birth records. This means you can finally find families where you match
the mother's maiden name. For example, searching in Index of
the Jewish Records of Vienna and Lower Austria for the last name ZEISL
and clicking the box for "Search of Last Name/First Name of
Father/Mother" I get births of kids with last name BAUER,
FELDBAUER, HUEBSCH and METZKER. All have mothers named ZEISL.

(US-RI) Re: RI James Arnold Collection Providence RI #general

Jan Meisels Allen
 

Rick Hyman replied to my posting of the James Arnold Collection at the
Providence RI Library. The newspaper article that was cited never said the
collection was digitized. I called the library and they advised at this time
there are no plans to digitize-they are completing another digitization
project but have not yet decided what project will be next-whether it be the
Arnold collection or another of their collections. To use their Arnold
collection one would have to physically visit the library.
