There appears to be confusion between township Chodorow in Bobrka commune of

the Eastern Ukraine at 4956 3115.

Galician (Austro-Hungarian Empire) vital records were not scattered through
Russian Empire - two Chodorow in (Khodorov) in question were different
places located in different countries.

BTW, Russian Khodorov was large Jewish township located near mighty Jewish
town Rzhyshchev, South >from Kiev. 400 Jews resided in this location at the
end of 19th century.

Information on 1883 Indianer folks homeowners is very encouraging indeed but
it doesn't provide solution to Marcia ancestors birth certificates
whereabouts.

After all, there is also number of Indianer of Chodorow listed in the Ellis
Island database.

I've been searching for many years and still can't find any INDIANER

One uncle's marriage showed up. yes INDIANER is not a common name

INDIANER is mentioned in Beider's book.

Where are these records?

----------------------------------------------------
Marcia,

It appears that Chodorow marriage records, for years 1876 to 1909,
have survived and available through Fond 300/0 (Jewish records)
at AGAD Government Archives in Warszawa.

This is probably >from your uncle's marriage certificate has resurfaced.

Other Chodorow records:

Births 1914-1926

Marriages 1914-1939

Deaths 1926-1940

are located in Warszawa Registry offices (USC) under Fond 512/0.

Those records are not available to the general public for examinations,
you should communicate directly with the USC.

There are no indications that pre-1900 records (except marriages)
have survived.

Since Chodorow was a part of Bobrka administration commune, perhaps
some Indianer records within Bobrka have survived.

Tracing Luden descendants from Tomaszow Poland #general

John Wakerman <john.wakerman@...>
 

I have been trying to trace family of my mother Genia Luden b. 1922 in Tomaszow,
d. 1999. There are descendants of her siblings in Canada and USA. I have been
unable to locate descendants living in Israel. I believe she had a sister in Haifa.

Any assistance would be appreciated.

Do you recognize the building in the background? #general

The couple featured is Alexander and Frydryka (Weissberg)
Aleksandrowicz. This and another photo were part of the personal
belongings of their son, Norbert Aleksandrowicz, who died about 10
years ago in Klodzko, Poland. This couple was known to have lived in
Vienna, Stanislawow and Lipnik, Bielsko-Biala, Poland.

These images, http://www.jewishgen.org/viewmate/viewmateview.asp?key=VM53637
and http://www.jewishgen.org/viewmate/viewmateview.asp?key=VM53638
show the couple in front of a building. The other people in the photo
are completely unknown to me. My interest is the building in the
background, and where this building is/was located. Knowing the location
of the building might help me find additional information about the family.

The couple died in the Holocaust, but I don't know when. They had
three children, Lidia, Irena and Norbert. Irena and Norbert were
twins and only Norbert survived the war. Norbert is my third cousin,
and survived the war by being hidden in a farm house near the Stanislawow
Ghetto. At the end of the war, the owners of the farmhouse and Norbert
were re-settled in Klodzko, where Norbert died about 10 years ago.

Norbert's family photos are being shared with me by the son of the
person who hid Norbert for three years.

In addition, someone >from the US, via the Red Cross was searching for
Norbert about 30+ years ago.

Any thoughts or information regarding any facet of my research would
be greatly appreciated.

Register Today! 37th Annual IAJGS International Conference on Jewish Genealogy July 23-28, 2017 #belarus

Adam Brown
 

Registration is now open for the 37th Annual IAJGS International
Conference on Jewish Genealogy, July 23-28, 2017, at the Swan Resort
on the grounds of Disney World in Orlando, Florida. Save money with
early registration and guarantee a room by visiting the conference Web
site now at http://www.iajgs2017.org.

The schedule includes more than 200 presentations on just about all
areas of Jewish genealogy by the best-known lecturers in their fields.
A major emphasis of these presentations will be to teach the strategies
that the attendees -- both advanced and beginner -- will need to take
their family history research to the next level. Space has been set
aside for the presenters to coach attendees outside the lecture hall,
and a resource room will include free access to numerous fee-based
genealogy databases.

More than 50 affinity groups including Special Interest Groups, Birds
of a Feather, and Facebook groups are planning lecture series,
workshops, breakfasts, lunches and meetings.

Beginners especially are invited to this conference where they will be
initiated into all the joys of getting started in Jewish genealogy with
a track of their own.

DNA testing is the cutting edge of Jewish genealogical research, but it
remains a puzzling mystery to many. This conference will include a
weeklong series of talks on every relevant aspect of this valuable
research tool.

Given that this is the first IAJGS conference ever held in the southern
United States, special attention will be given to the history of the
Jews of the South and the Caribbean basin. Experts on Florida,
Martinique, Curacao, Cuba, Panama, Mexico and other places that were
destinations for Jews and conversos fleeing the inquisition will make
presentations at the conference, and a special track will be devoted to
helping individuals with converso family history explore whether classic
genealogical resources and tools can help them link themselves >from the
present day back to the Spain's Golden Age.

Harvard Professor Henry Louis (Skip) Gates, host of the popular PBS
television show "Finding Your Roots", will address the Thursday evening
annual awards banquet with a talk on "Genealogy and Genetics in America."
On Sunday evening, Professor Robert Watson will talk about our Nevis-born
U.S. founding father entitled "Alexander Hamilton, the Jews, and the
American Revolution." On Tuesday evening, Professor Hasia Diner will
deliver the Pamela Weisberg Memorial Lecture commemorating the centennial
of America’s entry into WWI in her talk entitled "1917: A Turning Point
in American Jewish History".

All week long, the acclaimed IAJGS Film Festival will return with a full
schedule of offerings on Jewish cultural and historical topics.

The conference is co-sponsored by the International Association of
Jewish Genealogical Societies (IAJGS) and the Jewish Genealogy Society
of Greater Orlando.

Discounted hotel rooms are available >from July 17 through August 1 so
bring your family and come early and/or stay late and enjoy Orlando's
extensive outlet shopping and theme parks.

a track of their own.

DNA testing is the cutting edge of Jewish genealogical research, but it
remains a puzzling mystery to many. This conference will include a
weeklong series of talks on every relevant aspect of this valuable
research tool.

Given that this is the first IAJGS conference ever held in the southern
United States, special attention will be given to the history of the
Jews of the South and the Caribbean basin. Experts on Florida,
Martinique, Curacao, Cuba, Panama, Mexico and other places that were
destinations for Jews and conversos fleeing the inquisition will make
presentations at the conference, and a special track will be devoted to
helping individuals with converso family history explore whether classic
genealogical resources and tools can help them link themselves >from the
present day back to the Spain's Golden Age.

Harvard Professor Henry Louis (Skip) Gates, host of the popular PBS
television show "Finding Your Roots", will address the Thursday evening
annual awards banquet with a talk on "Genealogy and Genetics in America."
On Sunday evening, Professor Robert Watson will talk about our Nevis-born
U.S. founding father entitled "Alexander Hamilton, the Jews, and the
American Revolution." On Tuesday evening, Professor Hasia Diner will
deliver the Pamela Weisberg Memorial Lecture commemorating the centennial
of America’s entry into WWI in her talk entitled "1917: A Turning Point
in American Jewish History".

All week long, the acclaimed IAJGS Film Festival will return with a full
schedule of offerings on Jewish cultural and historical topics.

The conference is co-sponsored by the International Association of
Jewish Genealogical Societies (IAJGS) and the Jewish Genealogy Society
of Greater Orlando.

Discounted hotel rooms are available >from July 17 through August 1 so
bring your family and come early and/or stay late and enjoy Orlando's
extensive outlet shopping and theme parks.
