Counting trees in the Stryj area #galicia

Valerie Schatzker <vjs@...>
 

Harris Sterman asked what his grandfather meant when he said he
counted trees in the Stryj/Turka area between the 1920s and the outbreak
of the Second World War.

Along the northern slopes of the Carpathian Mountains there were
flourishing lumber companies during this period and earlier. Many Jews
were active in the industry. My husband's grandfather and great
grandfather owned lumber companies in the Stryj and Drohobych areas
that exported wood all over Europe. His father was a forestry engineer
trained in the Polytechnic University of Lwow. There were also many
sawmills in the region. It would seem to me that Mr Sterman's grandfather
could have been an employee in a lumber company.

Hello siggers,

I know that Radix has a database with all name changes in Hungary between
1800 and 1893.

But is there an address to find name changes after 1893 ?

Thank you for your answer.

Harris Sterman asks about "counting trees" and the occupation.

My maternal great grandfather >from Sochaczew, Poland, not Galicia,
had the same occupation. >from family lore we were told he was on
a count's estate and was a financial person or "bookkeeper" and this
was part of knowing the estate's wealth.

Was there such a job? #galicia

Harris Sterman <galiciastemerman@...>
 

My grandfather was >from Stryj/Turka Galicia in the 1920s till the war
broke out. I asked my father what my grandfather had done for a
living and he said something to the effect of "he counted trees."

Does this make any sense? Could this have been a keeper or manager
of a Polish noble estate? Is there a place to look up such a position?

Thanks

Visiting Ukraine..Narodici #ukraine

Susan Stone <momteller@...>
 

Hello All.

Has anyone recently visited Narodici (near Chernobyl/Kiev)? I am thinking of going this summer and would appreciate a response (privately) if you have info on
what the town is like..I have read about it online but would like an update. If you can recommend a translator, too. that would be good.

Lastly, in an obituary in chicago of my grandfather's brother, I found that my grandfather and his siblings had another sibling...a sister...and her full married name is listed. She stayed in Ukraine and all the rest came here. Any ideas on how I can find her descendents?

Thank you,

Re: INTRO-Researching ZIRBES Family in Sengendorf, Neuwied, Rhineland-Pfalz 17th Century #germany

Gerhard Buck <buckidstein@...>
 

The correct place name is Segendorf, now part of Neuwied. ZIRBES is a
still wide spread family name in the Rhineland. Therefore this ancestor
was not Jewish. A useful website for such information is the telephone
directory www.dasoertliche.de <http://www.dasoertliche.de>. Search for a
family name and a map appears, which shows you where in Germany a person
with this name lives.

When you look for genealogical information on the internet about a
family or a place, search for "name + Genealogie". In this case,
"Segendorf Genealogie" and "Zirbes Genealogie" will present you the
books and sources (Familienbuecher) that have been published for this village.

question re ALBA IULIA #romania

yehoshafat.pop@...
 

Shalom to all of you,

A friend of mine >from Rosh Pina is looking to find information on her
father who apparently was born in Alba Iulia, in 1925.
His name was Egon (Ron - in Israel he went by the name Ron) Rosental
(I am not sure how they spelled Rosental then, either with a z or th
or both...).
As far as the daughter remembers, her father's parents names were
Moritz and Margareta.

I would like to help this friend. She is looking to find documentation
about her father, but is not sure where to look for. Neither is she a
hundred percent sure that he was born in Alba Iulia, apparently he
made aliyah to Israel >from Alba Iulia , Romania.

If anyone has an idea how to help, and who we can address on this
issue, I would greatly appreciate it,

best regards

Three very interesting 1875 lists translated for Lida and Vasilishki (in the Lida District) #belarus

Jrbaston
 

Dear fellow Lida District researchers:

I'm delighted to let you know that we've translated
three very interesting 1875 Lists of Men >from the Lida District.

Two are >from Lida town <LID_LID_1_1875_men> (595 individuals)
and <LID_LID_2_1875_men> (679 individals), and one from
Vasilishki <LID_VAS_1875_men> (1,873 individuals). Despite
the names of these files, they contain many people who are either
residing or are registered in Lida District towns other than Lida
and Vasilishki.

<LID_LID_1> is divided by the streets on which people lived --
look for the orange-highlighted rows with "Novy Gorod Street,"
"near the Pharmacy" and other information about a family's
location in Lida. This file also contains some physical descriptions
and ages.

There is a surname list for these files at the bottom of our site's
homepage (https://lidadistrict.shutterfly.com), under Surname Lists.

While these files will eventually be publicly searchable in
the LitvakSIG All-Lithuania Database and the JewishGen
Belarus Database, they are currently available only to
participants in the LitvakSIG Lida District Research Group.

To become part of the LitvakSIG Lida District Research
Group, a qualifying contribution of $100 to LitvakSIG
will guarantee you access to Excel Files of all translations
-- new and old -- of Lida District records through December
31, 2021.

To contribute, please go to:
https://www.litvaksig.org/membership-and-contributions/join-and-contribute/
Click on "Research Groups for Districts and Gubernias" and
choose Lida District.

Your contribution will not only provide you access to these files,
it will help us translate the 1905 Family Lists for Lida town, Orlya,
Radun and Shchuchin. And because we have been able to
obtain a matching grant, everything you contribute will be
doubled and help us reach our goal twice as fast!

Please let me know if you have any questions,
