Poland + Ukraine 1764-1766 Jewish census images online for some towns #ukraine

I have just posted at
https://archive.org/details/agad_fond350_sygnatura168 photographs of a
book of 1764-1766 Jewish censuses for the following towns (+ some
nearby villages), which I wrote about here in 2018:

Kingdom of Poland: Baranow (Lublin), Konskowola (Lublin) + Wlostowice,
Miedzyrzec Podlaski (Siedlce), Staszow (Radom)

Galicia: Berezhany / Brzezany, Jaroslaw, Kalush / Kalusz, Narayev /
Narajow, Peremyshlyany / Przemyslany, Sieniawa, Skole, Tarnoruda

Podolia: Hraniv / Granow, Letychiv / Latyczow, Medzhybizh / Miedzyboz,
Nikolayev / Mikolajow, Sataniv / Satanow (statistics only), Stara
Sinyava / Stara Sieniawa

Volhynia: Klevan / Klewan

I photographed the book at AGAD in Warsaw and have received written
confirmation >from AGAD that this material is in the public domain and
can be shared as long as a citation is given to the archive and file
location.

Example citation: Archiwum Glowne Akt Dawnych w Warszawie, Fond 350
(Archiwum Potockich z Lancuta), Sygnatura 168.

More details are given at the link above, including a table of
contents with links to jump to the first images for each town.

Anyone is free to index this material, but, if you are interested in
doing so, you might want to first 1) announce your intentions here to
avoid duplication of effort and 2) reach out to the appropriate
Research Directors or Town Leaders at JewishGen, Gesher Galicia, or
JRI-Poland. It is my understanding that Staszow and Miedzyrzec
Podlaski have been indexed but are not yet online. I do not plan to
organize indexing myself.

Also, anyone who would like to share/post some or all of these images
elsewhere is welcome to do so -- just include the citation.

Please note that I am not affiliated with archive.org and am not
responsible for other content hosted there, I am just using it to
share and preserve public images as do the U.S. Holocaust Memorial
Museum, Leo Baeck Institute, Library of Congress, Reclaim the Records,
etc. In the future, I may post additional archival documents there
(with permission >from the archives), of both Jewish and more general
genealogical interest.

Thanks very much to AGAD and its archivists and supporters for
preserving this important material and making it available to
researchers.

It still does not work without paypal.  Yes there is a button for donating with credit card, but after filling it out, it will not accept it without   a paypal account!. This is my second time of trying.

Devonport is part of Plymouth and information on this area would be in Rabbi Susser's index of Jewish families in SW England with info on the JGSGB's website.My late father lived in Plymouth between the wars.  


Re: JEWISH FAMILIES IN SOUTH WALES frederick howard hewson #unitedkingdom

Jill Whitehead
 

If you join the JGSGB you will have access to all their online facilities including their Jewish Communities database, for which there is one on respectively Wales, Scotland, Ireland as well as larger and smaller communities in England.   I myself have family from Liverpool and North Wales. From memory, an academic  researcher called Nathan Abrahams wrote a book on Welsh Jewry a few years ago.

194 Reichsvereinigung registrants whose family names began with the letter V
have been added to the Reichsvereinigung der Juden in Deutschland database.
This database is available at the Steve Morse website under Holocaust and
Jewish Roof organizations. It will also be added to the Jewishgen holocaust
database.

As is the case with the previous letters of the alphabet, the database
contains fields which may be searched by family or maiden name, place of
birth and death and other factors such as country of emigration, suicide,
Mischling, etc.
For any name of interest one should go to the card >from which this information
was drawn, available at the Bad Arolsen website. The cards include
additional information, such as profession and street address.

Erblich family - New York & Detroit

Neil Rosenstein
 

Trying to make contact with this family and add more to the family
tree. Regina Erblich Meisler was born in Vienna in 1921. She lived
there until 1933 and then in Israel until 1958. She came to New York
and lived there until 1997 when she moved to Detroit.

Her father was an ordained rabbi who was an expert on handwritten
scrolls, such as The Dead Sea Scrolls. He traveled to Iraq to find
more scrolls. Her brother was a world renowned orthodox cantor and her
other brother was an engineer and builder.

Requesting Suggestions

Nina Tobias
 

Hello to All!

My husband's family is HUGE. The tree goes back to his 6x great-grandfather; many of the families in each subsequent generation had ten or more children so this tree has a ton of branches.

The family has decided to self-publish a comprehensive family history. I'm looking for suggestions as to how best organize and illustrate the trees and keep the history straight.  Alternatively, if you've had a disaster in this regard, please let me know what didn't work.

Thanks so much,

Nina Tobias

Hello- I just tried to donate at the “Please click here. .” line below.   I filled in everything to donate with a credit card, but it would not accept my donation- the screen apparently wants me to sign up for a PayPal account, which I do NOT want to do.  Why won’t your screen let me donate with a credit card??  Please let me know.

Thank you.

Re: who are or where is Bialostoker #poland

Arlene G L Baldwin
 

Just checking to see if anyone replied to your question. 

If not, the area the Bialystoker is associated with is the Bialystok region which was part of the Pale of Settlement under Russia.  Since the end of World War II, the Bialystok region is part of Poland. 

Some people coming to the US joined groups (landsman or workmen's circles) of people that came from the same regions. New York had a large population of Jews from the Bialystoker area, including the largest Jewish community of Bialystok.  Lots of club and synagogue activities.

Although some records can be found the destruction in that region from WWII was massive.  I hope this helps somewhat in your research. 


Index of Jewish Surnames in Cairo in the 20th Century

I just published on Avotaynuonline.com   an index of 1,689 surnames of Jewish families

which lived in Cairo during the 20th century with a short introduction about the

 methodology and the sources I used. It is certainly NOT a complete list and if I missed a

surname you know please please let me know. We can improve it only with your help. Here

 is the link
