gold chain #galicia

Anita Frankel <frankel2@...>
 

One more gold chain observation:

A studio portrait made in N.Y. of my paternal grandparents and their family
(about 1905) shows my grandmother and her married daughter both
wearing long chains (apparently gold) with medalions. I thought they were
watches.

The family came >from Olchowiec, Galicia.

Kind regards,

Chasidic Genealogy Research Committee #galicia

Brandler Institute of Chasidic Thought <bict@...>
 

Dear Moderator:

In keeping with past JewishGen policy I respectfully request that this one
time message be posted. This is about genealogy and is totally
non-commercial.


Dear Fellow Genealogists:

In response to many inquiries the Brandler Institute of Chasidic Thought is
proud to announce the formation of a "Chasidic Genealogy Research Committee"
comprised of Genealogical and Historical Researchers, its goal will be to:

Collaborate and share research on the hundreds of Chasidic groups that our
ancestors were affiliated with, as well as the customs and lifestyle of the
followers of these groups. Rather than concentrate on specific names of
ancestors, the intention will be to explore the lives our ancestors led,
including forming close contacts with extant Chasidic groups, and planning
"Chasidic Heritage" trips to Eastern Europe.

Since a very large percent of Jews in Poland, Ukraine, and parts of Hungary,
Rumania, and Russia were Chasidim, Chasidism has and continues to be a
fascinating area of research for us genealogists.


We are hoping to hold our "founders meeting" in Brooklyn or Manhattan (NYC)
in mid-January. All are welcome.
We are (at least initially) calling it a "committee" in order to explore
our various options, including forming a SIG etc.

Although we are hoping to have regular "live" meetings, we are eager for
"email" (long distance) members. The details will be decided by a majority
of those interested in joining us.

Please respond privately to bict@safeaccess.com

Jewish newspapers in Galicia between the two World Wars? #galicia

"Elvire Rosemont <virel@...>
 

Hello,
Maybe it can help you.
I met three years ago a lady at the Jewish Museum in Paris.
She told me she was the daughter of the owner of the Hajnt before the war in Poland.
She is Mrs.TURYN Ruth-Clair.
http://photoarts.com/journal/Claireturyn/Venice
or http: //www.archipelago.org

I never contacted her site. She made a book on Venice tombs.
Let me knowif it is OK. Otherwise I might know people who know her.

Elvire Rosemont, Paris

[MODERATOR NOTE: The first URL did not work when tried and the second is
general. Try http://www.archipelago.org/vol2-3/lido.htm]

Chag Sameach!
In my efforts to document life in Lubaczow I wanted to know which newspapers
were read in such a small shtetl in Galicia. My trusted source, Josh
Heilman, now living in Canada, told me the following:

" The papers read by the Jews in Lubaczow before the war were:
Polish paper: " Kurier Codzienny".
Jewish papers in the Polish language: "Nowy Dziennik" and
"Chwila."
In the Yiddish language: "Haint", "Moment" and some illustrated
magazines.
Those papers were published in Warsaw and Krakow.
Social announcements >from Lubaczow were very rare, seldom
a wedding ad was bought and published. My parents wedding was
advertised."

My first question is:
Where can one find archives that keep copies of the Jewish newspapers he
mentioned - Nowy Dziennik, Chwila, Haint and Moment?

My second question:
If you have seen copies of these newspapers >from the 1920=B4s and 1930=B4s -
could they be an interesting source for birth announcements, weddings
announcements and obituaries for our Galitzianers?
Would such announcements usually be only >from the big cities?

Hello genners,

Vital record information for all states and territories are as easy to
find, as is your computer. The website address is:

You'll find addresses to write to, costs per record, requirements, etc.

Good luck.

Re: Liskowsky from Belarus to Argentina--photos #belarus

Carlos Glikson
 

Stuart Liss scanned a photograph of his Liskowsky relatives and also scanned
the photographer's mark. The 1921 photographer's address is

Ubaldo Bentivoglio
Brown 60
B.Blanca

B. Blanca is Bahia Blanca, a city with 330.000 inhabitants in the South of
the Province of Buenos Aires. Bahia Blanca's port is Ingeniero White. It had
an important grain exports movement coming >from the agricultural areas
closer to Bahia Blanca than to Buenos Aires and commercial life grew based
on the agricultural trade and port movement.

These include some areas where Baron Hirsch's agricultural colonies were
established in the 1890s and also where some of the Jewish immigrants in
conflict with the local Baron Hirsch administration established other
agricultural centers such as Medanos..

People >from the colonies - including Medanos, Rivera, Bernasconi and Villa
Alba - moved to the city in the 1910s and 1920s . Some stayed, some followed
to Buenos Aires after some time changing farm life for urban life.

My white pages CD lists one Bahia Blanca phone for Bentivoglio, the very
Italian last name of the 1921 photographer. It is a 2002 lady living in a
different address.

A reverse look up for the 1921 photographer's address shows someone by other
name living there (maybe in a different apartment or in a new building in
the same place). The area in the Bahia Blanca district for this address is
Punta Alta, but this should be checked: There was also an important naval
activity in Bahia Blanca, and Brown is the name of a famous admiral in the
early 1800s in the Argentine fleet in the River Plate or Rio de la Plata.
There is a Brown street in Punta Alta (close to the naval base) and also a
probably more important Brown street downtown.

I came up with no LISKOWSKY phones in the white pages CD, but there are 29
LISCOVSKY phones including locations SE of Buenos Aires and also SE of Bahia
Blanca.

Hope this helps,
