Re: site for ship records #general

ilona lerman <phililona2001@...>
 

I seem to remember someone recently posting the
address of a site that can be searched according to
ship's name in order to find the manifest of a ship.
I have the name of the ship my mother-in-law arrived
on in 1921 to Phila. and hope this way I can find the
manifest. I looked in the archives,but didn't find it,
so maybe I didn't see it on Jewish Gen, but perhaps
someone can help.
Thanks.

Galicia: Dabrowa and Nowy Sacz civil records #galicia

Bill Celmaster <bill.celmaster@...>
 

Does anyone know where one might find Jewish civil records >from the mid
1800's or earlier for either Dabrowna (near Tarnow) or Nowy Sacz (aka
Zantz)?

As far as I can tell, neither of these places is explicitly mentioned in
lists of LDS films of Jewish records.

Thanks.

Re: R' Matitiahu KALTER of Nowy Sacz #galicia

Hi Logan,

Have you looked at the 1923 and 1929 Polish Business Directories?

I wrote a piece on navigating the 1923 Polish Directory
http://www.jewishgen.org/Galicia/html/polish_bus_dir.html

The 1929 is at:
http://www.jewishgen.org/jri-pl/bizdir/start.htm

It shouldn't be too hard to find the page since you know the town and a
business category.

I imagine that Debbie Raff has contacted you re Nowy Sacz.

Regards,

Shelley

I would be grateful if anyone with information about my relative Rabbi
Matitiahu/Mates KALTER, who lived in Nowy Sacz before WWII and until his
death in 1942, would contact me. He was born in 1893 in Przemysl, was
married to Zisale WEINTRAUB, had two children, and may have owned a
hardware/tool store there.

Re: (Przemysl Fort) #galicia

Semmel, David <david@...>
 

Thanks to Brian for his excellent history of the fort. If anyone has ANY
information on Przemysl or Jews in the Austrian army, please email me
directly - - David R. Semmel: david@semmel.com

Some more WWI Przemysl Fort history:

Soon after the war started, in early September 1914, Lemberg fell to the
Russians and both refugees and soldiers (4 of Affenberg's army corps) fled
west to Przemysl. The fort's Austrian commander, Kusmanek, allowed over
200,000 people to stay in Przemysl (normal population ~50k). If you could
show you had 3 months of supplies (food!) you could stay. By October, food
supplies were almost gone. Most people with money fled the town ahead of the
Russian advance. (My grand mother and most of her family stayed). Kusmanek
surrendered the town (after blowing up much of the fort system) on March 22,
'15 to Selivanov. The Russians issued orders expelling the Jews from
Przemysl in May after running out of supplies themselves, but the Germans
assembled a huge army (the XIth) with 10 divisions and 1500 pieces of heavy
artillery. (twice the caliber of anything the Russians had!) and on June 3
they retook Przemysl with the Russians in full retreat.

I have been looking for information on the Jews in the Austrian army as my
grand father (Emil Silberman) was one. What I do know is that Przemysl
produced 4 infantry, 3 artillery and several specialty regiments >from the
August conscription. What I would love to know is if any one was
specifically Jewish.

Soon after the German retaking of Przemysl, most of the troops (including my
GF) were xfered to the Italian front and the many battles of Izono and
Caporetto.
