1848 Jewish Census for Saros county, Hungary completed #general

Eric M. Bloch
 

Thanks to the diligent efforts of our dedicated transcription team, I'm
happy to announce completion of the 1848 Jewish census for Saros county,
Hungary after 7 months of work.This census will be extremely valuable to
genealogists with ancestors and relatives >from Saros county.

A total of 9,631 names were transcribed, which include *all* household
members (heads of household, their wives and children, and others such
as teachers and servants).Other information includes town of residence,
age, birthplace, occupation, and relationship to head of household.A
total of 343 towns of residence were included.

A general description of the 1848 census may be found at
https://www.jewishgen.org/databases/Hungary/Census1848.htm
Some variation in the general transcription rules were made during
transcription of the Saros census, particularly with regard to suffixes
which occasionally appeared with town names and surnames.

To help us recover the cost of acquiring this important census >from the
Slovak archive in Presov, contributors of $100 or more to the Slovak
Archives Records Project found on the JewishGen, Special JewishGen
Projects donations page will be immediately entitled to receive a copy
of the completed Excel spreadsheet with all the data. This data will *not*
be available to the general public for at least one year, when it will
be added to the All-Hungary Database on JewishGen.

If you would like to make a contribution, please go to:
https://www.jewishgen.org/JewishGen-erosity/v_projectslist.asp?project_cat=15
and enter your contribution in the box for Slovak Archives Records
Project.Forward to me a copy of your electronic receipt and I'll send
the spreadsheet.

If you have any questions, feel free to contact me off-list.

Revised Website: Drohobycz District #galicia

Valerie Schatzker <vjs@...>
 

To Researchers in Galician-Jewish history.

Some years ago, I created the website for the Drohobycz Administrative
District. A revised version is now online at
https://kehilalinks.jewishgen.org/drohobycz/index.html.

The entire Drohobycz district is included in the website because >from
the mid 1850s to the end of the Second World War, Jewish families
moved frequently to and >from Drohobycz, Boryslaw, Truskawiec, and
many other towns and villages to work in the petroleum industry that
flourished in that region. Families that may have originated in one town
might later be found in another.

Because of the oil industry, the Drohobycz District was one of the most
economically important in Galicia. The Jewish community played a
pivotal role in its development. Hundreds found work there; several
became very wealthy. The larger towns grew and prospered. Drohobycz
still contains the ruins of mansions where the wealthy Jewish mine and
refinery owners lived. Jewish education and the arts also flourished.
Drohobycz was the home of the great artists Maurycy and Leopold
Gottlieb, Efraim Moses Lilien, and the writer and artist Bruno Schulz.

I recently revised the website and invite those who have ancestral roots
to visit it. Others interested in Galician history may also find the site
interesting since I have included a history of Galicia. There are also
histories of the main towns, Drohobycz and Boryslaw, and of the
petroleum industry.

The Family Album section is the one I like best. It contains photos and
stories of families >from the district that have been sent to me by many
viewers. Some of these pages tell stories of prominent Jews, such as
the famous oil magnates, but also other interesting people, like the
photographers, Wilhelm and Gustaw Russ (called the father of Polish
photography), who made important contributions to the development
of their profession. There is also a bibliography and information on
genealogical resources for researchers.

I welcome comments and suggestions >from viewers. I would especially
like to hear >from other descendants' families >from the Drohobych
district who might have photographs and stories about their families
that I could include in the Family Album.

A new database has been added to the Romaniia/Moldova databases and
to the Holocaust databases on JewishGen. It is titled "Mass
Deportation >from Moldova >from 13-16 June 1941". It is a list of 2571
Moldovan Jews that were deported by the Soviet occupation authorities
between 13 and 16 June, 1941. The Jews were primarily deported to
concentration camps or to Kazakhstan or Siberia.

The database contains, besides the surname and given name of the
person deported, the year of birth, occupation, home town, address and
reason for deportation. Families are grouped together and the
relationship between the members of each family are listed. A full
description can be found in the introduction to the database.

Re: Prime Minister of Moldova Pavel Philip demanded a plan to restore the Jewish cemetery in Kishinev! #bessarabia

Hi Yefim, hi colleagues.

I am not so optimistic yet. The title is "restoring the cemetery",
while judging by the text, the plan is to demolish almost the whole
cemetery but a small part around the beit-tahara.
I have been out of the country, supposingly will be invited
to the Prime-Minister's office for consultation
(was contacted unofficially so far). Will keep you informed.

I got an interesting information >from Kishinev that Prime Minister of Moldova Pavel Philip visited
Kishinev Jewish cemetery and demanded(!) a plan to restore the Jewish cemetery in Kishinev.
You can see the website, and translate it >from Russian:

https://m.point.md/ru/novosti/obschestvo/pavel-filip-potreboval-razrabotat-plan-po-vosstanovleniiu-evreiskogo-kladbishcha

At first value it looks great, finally the Moldovan government thinks about the Jewish cemetery, Jewish
Heritage, Jewish Museum, etc. even if the goal is to get more tourists, visitors, business to the town.

Let's see what is going to come >from it, and not celebrate it yet..................

Cemetery in Brazil #bessarabia

Yefim Kogan
 

Sergio,

Thanks a lot for the information.

It gave me an idea of another search...

If you go to JOWBR and search just JOWBR with "Any Field" containing
"Bessarabia" or better "Bessar" you will get about 500 hits of people at the
burial registry who was >from Bessarabia, including 247 >from Brazil... You
can change Bessarabia for Romania or Romenia...
And the number of Jews buried >from Romenia is almost 2000!! You probably
can try another spellings and will get more results, and many of these
Romania Jews were >from Bessarabia. In some records you can find towns
people were from... You also can try to search for a TOWN with different
spellings...

All the best,
Yefim Kogan
JewishGen Bessarabia SIG Leader and Coordinator



---------------------------------------------------------------------------
You mentioned you also got a list of Jews >from Bessarabia who were buried in
Brazil (cemiterio israelita de Vila Mariana).

The cemetery you mentioned is in Sao Paulo. Just in case of interest, note
that JOWBR has published entries for other cemeteries in Brazil, such as the
ones in Rio de Janeiro (Vila Rosali and Vilar dos Teles). For my
greatparents and many others the record shows as birth place "Romenia", so
it shouldn't be difficult to create a list of those as well. Although listed
as Romenia, I imagine that a large number of them are really >from Bessarabia
(as my family).
