Bilgoraj, Chelm notary records online #general

Logan J. Kleinwaks
 

New scans of notary records >from Bilgoraj and Chelm have just been posted at
szukajwarchiwach.pl. Perhaps, someone interested in these towns can examine
them to determine whether there are any records pertaining to Jews, as notary
records can sometimes contain extremely valuable genealogical information.

To view the scans, first go to the list of groups of records at:

Chelm notary records 1810-1814
http://szukajwarchiwach.pl/36/120/0/str/1/100?ps=True#tabZespol

Bilgoraj notary records 1811-1915
http://szukajwarchiwach.pl/37/307/0/str/1/100?ps=True#tabJednostki

http://szukajwarchiwach.pl/37/319/0/str/1/100?ps=True#tabJednostki

Year ranges above indicate the first and last year for which there are scans,
but there might not be scans for some years in between. In the lists, note the
last column on the right, Number of Scans/Liczba Skanow. If that is 0, there
are no scans available for the group of records.

Clicking the title of a group of records will bring up an overview page, with
a red tab at the top. Click the link to the right of the red tab, Scans/Skany.
This will lead to a group of thumbnail images, 15 per page by default.

Clicking on a thumbnail will enlarge it. On the enlarged image, there is an
icon near the bottom right that looks like a white rectangle on a black circle
-- clicking that will open a new window to display a high-resolution image.
Because of the size of the high-resolution image, it might not be fully visible
on your screen, but you can click, hold, and drag it with your mouse to change
the visible region. To save a high-resolution image to your computer, click the
Download/Pobierz link below the image, in the bottom center.

I have not examined these scans and I regret that I am not able to offer
individual assistance.

Arthur STOCKI Warsaw 1939 #general

Connie Fisher Newhan
 

While looking through some of my father's old pictures, I found an old \
photograph of Arthur STOCKI. My father left Warsaw in 1939.

Dad wrote on the photograph............."Arthur Stocki, a pal- - killed by
Hitler's bandits in 1939 while defending Warsaw. May he rest in peace".

I'm hoping this will find its way to a family member...........
Please contact me privately if you would like me to send you an email copy of

Re: Divorce Decree #general

A. E. Jordan
 

From: Debbie Lifschitz
How do I go about find the divorce decree, which her family now needs for
legal reasons?
Divorce records are private and sealed for 100 years.

The court calendar is public so if you can figure out the court you can see
the very basic details on the court calendar.

In this unique case the family could petition the court for the record but
that has to be done in a formal process documenting the relationship and
explaining why.

In general genealogists can only see the calendar or the files for 100 years
plus -- but due to a recent fire in the records storage some of the old ones
have been lost.

If anyone wants to discuss the process and my results with court calendars
email me.

The CIA's CREST database goes online for the first time -- eleven million records #general

Asparagirl
 

The CIA's CREST database has just gone online for free public access.
While most of these eleven million records have been declassified for
years, they were previously only available to researchers who used the
computers onsite at the National Archives (NARA II) in College Park,
Maryland. They are now searchable in the CIA's online "Electronic
Reading Room."

While the text of the files is basically searchable, the OCR on the
text is not great, owing to the mixed quality of the original copies,
many of which were typewritten, copied several times and redacted, and
sometimes hand-annotated.

Besides doing a search on surnames, you might be able to find some
information about your ancestral shtetls and towns in this database.
There appears to have been a CIA survey done of most towns in Ukraine
and Poland and Lithuania in the 1950's, maybe other USSR-occupied
areas too, and those reports are in this database.

For example, here is the CIA's 1954 survey of "Nadvornaya", which was
the then-contemporary Russian/USSR name for what we would call
Nadvirna (Ukrainian) or Nadworna (Polish):
https://www.cia.gov/library/readingroom/docs/CIA-RDP80-00809A000600060284-1.pdf

As you can see, there are lots of details included about the town and
its inhabitants and its buildings.

Make sure to search for your town name using alternate spellings,
concentrating on the Russian/Soviet versions in use in the 1950's.
Even countries sometimes have alternate spellings in these documents,
i.e. Rumania instead of Romania.

I also found that there are some phonebooks in this record collection,
although it's very hard to find them with the search tool.

Here's a 1958 phonebook for several major cities in the Czech Republic
(then Czechoslovakia):
https://www.cia.gov/library/readingroom/docs/CIA-RDP81-01043R002000180001-5.pdf

And here's a 1957-1958 phonebook for Lodz Voivodeship, USSR, which is
today Poland:
https://www.cia.gov/library/readingroom/docs/CIA-RDP81-01043R002500080010-1.pdf

And here's the 1955 phonebook for Leipzig, then in East Germany:
https://www.cia.gov/library/readingroom/docs/CIA-RDP81-01043R000700140001-4.pdf

And here's the 1966 phonebook for Kalinin, which is today known as
Tver, Russia, about 110 miles northwest of Moscow:
https://www.cia.gov/library/readingroom/docs/CIA-RDP82-00038R001800280001-3.pdf

(Note: searching the CREST database on the phrase "telephone
directory" seems to work better at unearthing these gems than
searching on the word "phonebook", but you will also get many false
hits for the CIA's own internal telephone directories.)

There are also a number of reports about Nazi concentration camps,
Soviet labor camps and gulags, and more Cold War era military
documentation than you can believe.

Good luck!

(Note: searching the CREST database on the phrase "telephone
directory" seems to work better at unearthing these gems than
searching on the word "phonebook", but you will also get many false
hits for the CIA's own internal telephone directories.)

There are also a number of reports about Nazi concentration camps,
Soviet labor camps and gulags, and more Cold War era military
documentation than you can believe.

Good luck!

Hello genners
My ggrandfather Simon STIEGLITZ was a teacher and a bookbinder in Biecz.
I would like to know more information about the craft specifically in a
Jewish shtetl at the begining of twentieth century Galicia. Any interesting
links or articles will be highly apreciated.
