search for Terner-Platz #general

Shelley Mitchell
 

Hi Genners -

In 1910, my great aunt, Perl Terner (Moldauer), >from Kolomea, married Isaac Itsig
Platz Plac >from Delaytn. Her parents were Szymon Moldauer and Matel Terner. His
were Shmiel Platz and Malka Zaunkonig. Perl and Isaac had seven children in
Delaytn, one of whom was named Samuel. Records show the murder of Perl and Isaac
as well as two of their children (female). I've always wondered what happened to
the other 5. I started my genealogy tree years ago in hopes of finding a survivor/
descendent. I hoped some of the children may have gone to Israel or someplace else.
Does anyone have any hints?

Thank you.

New Data for Galician Towns Added to JRI-Poland Database #general

Mark Halpern
 

Thanks to the efforts of many volunteers and supporters, JRI-Poland
recently added record indices for ten towns in Galicia to our online
database at http://www.jri-poland.org/jriplweb.htm. All these records
are found at the AGAD Archive in Warsaw, Fond 300.

-- Bobrka 1904,1912,1914-1917,1927-1927 deaths

-- Drohobycz 1916 births

-- Dunajow 1925-1934 marriages These are the first records in the
JRI-Poland database for this town which was in Tarnopol province near
the towns of Pomorzany, Narajow, and Gologory.

-- Gliniany 1898-1914 deaths

-- Mikulince 1911-1914 births

-- Podkamien 1914, 1920 marriages

-- Rozdol 1903-1916 births; 1898-1914 deaths

-- Skole 1916 births

-- Sokal 1916-1936 marriages

-- Zbaraz 1911-1929 marriages

With the addition of these records, there are now nearly one million
record indices included in the JRI-Poland online database for towns in
Eastern Galicia. This covers 98 towns now in Ukraine.

As many of you know, JRI-Poland has been linking our index entries to
the images of records that are placed online by the AGAD Archive. AGAD
has placed images online for all record registers with
Signature/Sygnatura through 3278 covering records up through 1915. The
AGAD Inventory by Sygnatura can be found at
http://www.agad.gov.pl/inwentarze/Mojz300x.xml

For Sygnaturas that have been indexed by JRI-Poland, the search results
table will show a link in the far left column. If the link reads "View
Image," the link will take you directly to the page containing that
record. Linking directly to the record requires volunteers who input the
image-link to the file containing the index entries. This team of
volunteers is led by Howard Fink. We thank them for their efforts. If
you are interesting in helping with the linking project, please contact me.

If the link reads "View Nearby Image," the direct linking input has not
yet been completed. However, JRI-Poland Database Manager Michael Tobias
has developed a mechanism to estimate the page where the record can be
found. In most cases, the link to the record will require the researcher
to move forward or backwards up to four pages to find the right record
number (AKTA). We thank Michael for his efforts.

Our indexing has now entered into the years of World War I and we are seeing
the impacts of the War on the vital record registrations in some towns.

If you have any questions about these towns or the status of indexing
for any towns formerly in Galicia and now in Ukraine, please contact me
at mark@halpern.com.

Please remember, Galicia researchers should also be searching Gesher
Galicia's All Galicia Database http://search.geshergalicia.org/. These
two databases have very little overlap.

Genealogist's Story: >from Internet Searching to a Book about the
Mannebergs of Upper Silesia. She describes a genealogical search for
descendants and relatives of one of the most significant citizens of
Rybnik - Josef Manneberg. He and his family were German Jews, mostof
whom lived in Rybnik, which was Prussian, then German, then Polish.
The Mannebergs, as German Jews with Polish citizenship, left Poland
for Palestine in May 1939. We do hope that you will be able to join
us at the luncheon for what will be a really interesting presentation

If you haven't already signed up for the luncheon at noon on GerSIG

mysterious DNA "match" #dna

David Goldman
 

Hello, everyone. Well, here's an interesting Ancestry match for an
"extremely high" 2nd-3rd cousin. Someone wrote me to say he was distantly
related to a second cousin once removed of me on her mother's side, while I
am related to that second cousin on her father's side!
What makes that an extremely high match is hard for me to figure out!
