ViewMate -- Polish town identification needed #general

Fishbein Associates, Inc.
 

Fellow Researchers:

I would like to ask for your assistance in identifying the name of a Polish
town that appears in the 1871 English census. Try as I might, I am unable
to decipher the handwriting in any meaningful way. I have posted the text
in question on ViewMate at the following address:
http://www.jewishgen.org/viewmate/viewmateview.asp?key=VM35204 . The name
of the town that I am interested in is on the first line of the text and
begins with the words: "Poland.R, ?" I require no assistance with the rest
of the text as the handwriting is easily decipherable.

Please respond via the form provided in the ViewMate application or directly
to fishnet@pipeline.com.

With much appreciation

View-Mate request re Yiddish names #general

Sharon Korn <s.r.korn@...>
 

I've posted two small sections of two different manifests, and I would
appreciate help with three Yiddish female names.

For image 35112, at
http://www.jewishgen.org/viewmate/viewmateview.asp?key=VM35112 : For the
first daughter under Beile JANKEL, I can't read her name at all. Can anyone
tell me her name?

The next daughter is Roche, but I have been told a granddaughter was named
Rochel. Are both Roche and Rochel correct Yiddish names? If not, which
one is correct?

For image 35116, at
http://www.jewishgen.org/viewmate/viewmateview.asp?key=VM35116 : The first
name on the second line looks like Gole to me, although it was indexed in
the Ellis Island Database as Gale. How should this name be pronounced?

Please respond via the form provided in the ViewMate application.

Thank you for your help.

There is no puzzle there, Tom.

"Austria" and "Poland" usually means somewhere along the northern
Hungarian and southern Polish borders, i.e. Galicia or Transcarpathia.
Well, there used to be Western and Eastern Galicia, and Eastern Galicia
was not exactly located ..."along the northern Hungarian and
southern Polish borders .."

Using the JewishGen Communities database, there are 4 Janows, each
about 100 miles out, around Warsaw.
Polish "proper" Janows are actually three and they are identified by
their orientation nicknames such as Janow" Lubelski, Sokalski and Podlaski.

(those may be the origins of the
yanoff society; between them they had a jewish population of over
6,500.) but none of them would have ever been "austrian", since
they are much too far away >from the border.
But it also lists

Ivano-Frankove (49°55' N 23°44' E ), in present-day Ukraine,
which was in austro-hungarian Galicia before WW1, in Poland between
the wars, and the Soviet Union after WW2. Its Yiddish name was Yanov,
and it lists a jewish population of almost 1,000.
There are two ex Janow in Eastern Galicia, one is indeed renamed
Ivano-Frankove, a shtetl near Grodek Jagiellonski in Lwow Province,
and the other one known currently as Dolyna near Trembowla.

ps. there are 3 researchers listed in the jewishgen family finder
for ivano-frankove, but you might also check the contacts listed
for the other janows, in case any of them connected to the wrong
town.
Ex Janow near Trembowla is identified in JGFF system as Dolyna,
(Yanov), and there 84 entries for this place. Janow near Lwow is
identified as Yanov, (ambiguous)

ABRAMS/MAYERS/WIDMAN/GOLD #southafrica

Marcella Shames
 

Hi List

I am looking for support for the marriages of two sisters:

Ethel ABRAMS/ABRAHAMS to Harry MAYERS (aka Mayer Hirsch SHNEIDERMAN)
before 1906 in London or Johannesburg

Rebecca ABRAMS/ABRAHAMS to Morris WIDMAN about 1906 in London or Johannesburg

I have a photograph of Rebecca's wedding - sister, Ethel is sitting next
to her - I am told the wedding took place in London in August 1906
However Ethel gave birth to her first child in Johannesburg in May 1906
so I am not sure the dates or the places are accurate.

A third sister Clara ABRAMS/ABRAHAMS married Joe GOLD(stein) in Mile End,
London in 1904 - Family search record supports this event.

Any help and/or suggestions are much appreciated.

Marcella Shames

Dear Genners,

Does someone recognize the above names?
Taube appears to be a daughter of my greatX2 grandfather Girsh SHERMAN.
I would love to hear >from someone of the Levitov family. Perhaps they
shortened their name to Levit.

Thank you in anticipation

Speaking of Austrian cars ... [Was "Viewmate: car in Vienna"] #general

Lewis, Megan
 

The Technisches Museum Vienna has two online databases about vehicle
ownership in Austria in the 1930s and 1940s. I think some people on
the list might be interested in them.

The first database contains the names of about 69,000 car, truck and
motorcycle owners take >from automobile club directories >from around
Austria. Entries include owner's name, address, and type of vehicle.
For many vehicles there are representative photographs.

The second database contains information on 3,000 vehicles stolen by
the Nazis, mostly the Gestapo, the SA and other security agencies.
The Nazis seized about 20% of all Austrian passenger cars.

Information in English about the databases is at
http://www.technischesmuseum.at/databases-on-motor-vehicles-in-austria-in-the-1930s-and-1940s
[http://tinyurl.com/mclryup - MODERATOR]

The databases are in German. The ownership database is at
http://historische-kfz-verzeichnisse.technischesmuseum.at/?page_id=2
It can be searched by owners name, address, make and model, engine
number and car (registration?) number.

The database of stolen cars is at
http://historische-kfz-verzeichnisse.technischesmuseum.at/?page_id=9
It can also be searched by name, address, license plate number and
make/model.

Best,

Megan

The above link is to field notes carried out for the international

funded with a 412,000 Euro grant >from the European Union's Cross-border
Cooperation Programme Poland-Belarus-Ukraine 2007-2013.

The project involves both on-site and archival research in all three
countries; the development of three tourist trails; an internet portal
that will describe towns and feature images, anecdotes and history;
a guidebook to Jewish heritage in the region; guided tours and the
training of tour guides; and the preparation of 3-d virtual models
