Researching WEINIG, KESSLER or GROSSINGER >from Przemysl.
My grandfather family lived in Przemysl. He emigrate to Israel (1938) and since then he had no contact with his
family.

I wish to accomplish the family tree of the close family (he does not
remember) before he will die (born 1913).

And with that information maybe to find out what happened to them and maybe
to find any body in the word related to him.

I could not find any of the names I know at JewishGen database.

I need help to continue my research...thanks for any answer

Hello Galizianers,

I am relatively new in this Discussion Group and living in Belgium. For
obvious reasons I cannot attend the regional meeting which will be held on
November 20.
I would be interested in any information on the town of Snyatin, where my
father was born as well as both my grand-parents.
So far, all searches have led to dead ends because of lack of vital records.

As I understood it >from Eden Joachim, the coordinator of the groups, no one
has shown an interest for this town but it does not mean there will not be.

I would so much appreciate if someone interested in Snyatin could share what
he/she would have learned in the meeting concerning Snyatin.

Please respond privately and thank your very much,

Announcing the Sulejow, Poland PSA Indexing Project #poland

Gloria Berkenstat Freund
 

I am happy to announce that the indexing of the birth, marriage and death
records for Sulejow for the years 1873 to 1903 has been completed at the
Piotrkow-Trybunalski branch of the Polish State Archives. The period of
these records covers the years when many of our grandparents and
great-grandparents lived in Sulejow. I have a list of the surnames in this
index (which includes surname spelling variations) and their frequency in
the index which I will be happy to send to anyone who wishes to look at it.

Some of the most frequently mentioned surnames are:
BIRENCWAJG, GOLD, GOLDBERG, GROSBERG, JURKEWICZ, LAJZEROWICZ,
LIBERMAN, NEJMAN, ROZENBLUM and ROZENCWAJG.

In order for us to have access to this database, it must be uploaded to the
JRI-Poland website. However, before this can be done, we must pay for the
expenses incurred in the creation of the database. The 1873-1903 documents
are written in the Cyrillic alphabet and the process of creating the
database involved data entry in Russian and then using a JRI-Poland macro to
transliterate the names into their Polish counterparts. Professionals were
hired in Poland to do this work.

The total cost of the creation of the database is $600. $150 has already
been donated. If you make a contribution of $100 or more, you will be
eligible to receive an Excel file with the complete index for the town of
Sulejow.

Contributions to JRI-Poland are tax-deductible for US and Canadian
taxpayers. Make sure to indicate that your contribution is for the Sulejow
indexing project.

Extra special and exceptionally on a Thursday: 1 December 2005 -
Karen S. Franklin. The lecture will be in English.
"Solving the Mystery of the Cane Handle: Utilizing the Collection of
the Jacob Rader Marcus Center of the American Jewish Archives for
Family History Research"

Karen S. Franklin creates a web of intrigue as she describes how she
utilized documents >from the Archives and other resources to
reconstruct the Brylawski family history and trace the meaning of a
cane handle she purchased at auction for William Wolf of Washington,
DC. The cane handle was given in honor of Wolf's ancestor, Julius A.
Brylawski in 1886 for service to his synagogue, Anshe Emeth of
Philadelphia (the congregation was dissolved in 1893). Also featured
in this powerpoint lecture will be other documents found in
connection with the research, including correspondence with Senator
Barry Goldwater describing gambling debts >from their 19th century
mutual ancestors.


4 January 2006 - Elinore Rasco: ">from dust, ashes and no hope to
miraculously concrete family information". Join Elinore as she takes
us through her excruciating 20 year journey >from sifting through the
murk of the Shoah to finally finding information on her grandfather's
family. Her experience could point the way for you to trace your
family in the Shoah and avoid the many pitfalls she stumbled and fell
into.

1 February 2006 - Mordechai Ben Abir: "The Diary of Bachur Elia
Cabaillero, 186-- to 192--, >from Izmir" This amazing find that no
one could read because it was written in Hebrew letters but in words
from Spanish, Turkish, Ladino and Hebrew, records daily Jewish life
in Izmir and the perils of Jewish holidays for the community. If ever
you wondered how our ancestors lived, this diary and Ben Abir's
explanations are critical to that knowledge.
