Records from Ukraine #galicia

Robert Mandelbaum
 

Is there an archive to which I can write for records >from Ukraine? I cannot
seem to locate on the Ukraine SIG web site any instructions for obtaining
records akin to those set forth for the respective countries under the
jurisdiction of Litvak SIG and Jewish Records Indexing - Poland. Is this
because Ukraine will not do searches for records? If it is in fact possible
to request a search for records there, does anyone know to what address I
should write, whether I can write in English, and how much money I need to
send? The particular records I am seeking pertain to four towns: Gertsa,
Stryy, Mukachevo, and Zolochev. Since my knowledge of Ukrainian geography is
poor, I am not even sure to what present-day oblasts (or is it gubernias?)
these towns belong. Any help anyone can provide on this latter issue would
also be much appreciated. I do know that at the time my ancestors lived
there, Gertsa (known then as Hertza) was in Romania; Zolochew (Zloczow) and
Stryy were in Galicia; and Mukachevo (Munkacs) was in Hungary. Should I
actually be writing to Romania, Austria, and Hungary, respectively, for these
records, or is Ukraine the right place?

Thank you very much,

Topm - A town in Galicia? #galicia

moishe@langsam.com <moishe@...>
 

Hi,

Using the EIDB, I found some of my LANGSAM relatives came >from a town
listed as TOPM. This was back in 1892. Traditionally, all of the family
originated in Galicia. I can not find this town. I looked it up in
ShtetlSeekers and WOWW. Neither had anything. Has anyone heard of this town
or know of its whereabouts?
If necessary, I have posted the reference to this arrival at
http://www.ics.uci.edu/~dan/genealogy/Miller/langsam/eidb.htm

place of residence #galicia

Robert Fraser <rgfraser@...>
 

On my grandfather's birth record >from Galicia (1886) , his parents, my
great-grand-father and his wife, are listed as being "from" a certain place.
The record, in Polish and German, requires the clerk to list "wohnort",
which means "place of residence".

I'm wondering if these places would be their birthplaces, or the places at
which they were
offically registered, or simply where they lived at the time - or neither.

Shalom

Marta Bertolini <marta.bertolini@...>
 

my name is Marta Bertolini and I live in Rome Italy.

Together with my father Bruno and my uncle Giorgio, we are trying to
discover something about our family, I mean about my grand-mother's family.
All I know is what my grand mother was able to tell us.

Here is our genealogy as far as we are aware about it, please let me know
if there is something in common with your one, it would be really nice to
find out we still have relatives somewhere in the world and to know
something more about our ancestors!

Thank you.

Marta


My great-great grand father was Markus "Max" WOHL
He was >from Polish origin and was born in Bolechov (Striy, Lwow, Galicia)
He had two brothers: Ignaz Menachem and another one (about this one we
don't have any information, someone told us he was an actor!)
Ignaz (1859 Bolechov-1913 Trieste, Italy) had a daughter: Iris (who lived
in Italy, married Mr. Pardo and had a son: Lucio Pardo, who lives in
Bologna, Italy and who is the chairman of the local Jewish Community)
The second brother had a daughter: Irene, who died in New York some years
ago, she was married to Mr. MOTULSKY

After his Bar-mitzvah Markus "Max" Wohl left Bolechov and went to Wien were
he married (1881?) Babette LANG (she was German, and died in 1891)
They had 4 daughters: Elsa, Hulda, Martha, Wally.
Babette died giving birth to the youngest.

Elsa was my great grandmother, she was born in 1883 in Langen in Arlberg in
Austria, she married my grat grand-father Giacomo Raffaele "Ralph" LUZZATTO
(she met him in Trieste, Italy were she went to visit uncle Ignaz). Elsa
and Ralph lived in Trieste and then in Rome and had two children, my
grand-mother Margherita "Rita" and uncle Bruno.

Hulda, she lived in Wien until she came to Italy to stay with Elsa and her
family when Austria was annexed to Germany

Martha had three husbands and lived in Wien and in London

Wally was the youngest, she married Moritz POLLAK, they had a son (Hans
Wolfgang), all I know abiut them is that they were living in France and
that they all died in Auschwitz, and that Moritz had a sister (Julka)


Talking about my great grand-father Ralph, he was the son of Leone
LUZZATTOI >from Trieste and of Adele BERGER who was English (but of Italian
origin)
Ralph had 3 sisters. Estella (Stella), Berta and Nina.
The only one who married was Nina, and they all lived in Italy, first in
Trieste and then in Rome.

Re: Burial Information in St. Paul, MN #general

The former Russian Brotherhood Cemetery is part of the West Side Hebrew
Cemetery in St. Paul. I can't explain why you did not receive a response
to the letter you sent to the cemetery, but I will happy to obtain
whatever information you desire if you will write to me privately.

Does anyone living in the St.Paul, Mn. area know of an address of a
Cemetery or Temple that I could write to, for the purpose of locating the
name and address of the current cemetery where my Grandfather Michael
Smith is buried.

The Death certificate that I have on Michael Smith, states that he was
buried in the Russian Cemetery in St. Paul,Minnesota. He died on
November 9, 1920, and the undertaker was Jacob Rockstroh.

I wrote to West Side Hebrew Cemetery in St. Paul , MN last Feb.19th, 2001
with a self addressed stamped envelope and never received any reply.

There are three cemeterys located at Barclay and Maryland streets.

North Gate: West Side Hebrew Cemetery, Russian Brotherhood and Adath
Yeshurum

Middle Gate: B'Nai Abraham, now called: Sons of Abraham

South Gate: West Side Hebrew Cemetery

The reason that I wrote to the West Side Hebrew Cemetery was that it was
the newest of them, and since he died in 1920 I reasoned that he would
have been buried there.

If anyone could give me any information on the above I would be grateful
for your reply.
