JOWBR Grows Past the 3.2 Million Record Mark! #lodz #poland

Nolan Altman
 

JewishGen is proud to announce its 2017 year end update to the JOWBR
(JewishGen's Online Worldwide Burial Registry) database. The JOWBR database
can be accessed at www.jewishgen.org/databases/Cemetery/ If you're a new
JOWBR user, we recommend that you visit our screencast page at
www.jewishgen.org/databases/Cemetery/Screencasts/ and take a look at the
first two explanatory screencasts.

This update, adds approximately 105,000 new records and 25,000 new photos.
The database is adding and/or updating 519 cemeteries. This update brings
JOWBR's holdings to 3.23 million records >from close to 7,400 cemeteries /
cemetery sections representing 130 countries!

Once again, donors for this update include a mix of individuals, Jewish
genealogical societies, historical societies and museums. We appreciate
all our donor's submissions and the transliteration work done by a faithful
group of JewishGen volunteers.

Significant additions to JOWBR by country include:

. Canada - approximately 2,100 records and 9,800 photos for Baron de
Hirsch - De la Savane Cemetery and other Quebec cemeteries
. Argentina - approximately 2,800 records >from new and existing
cemeteries.
. Czechia (Formerly Czech Republic) - approximately 2,100 new records
. Germany - approximately 17,100 new records for new and existing
cemeteries
. Moldova - added 2 new cemeteries with 2,600 records and a new
cemetery with 700 records
. Poland -approximately 6,000 new records >from new cemeteries
. Romania -approximately 3,200 >from updated data.
. Ukraine -approximately 3,300 records, mostly >from new
Transcarpathian cemeteries
. United States - approximately 38,500 new records and 6,200 photos
for 42 new and 81 updated cemeteries, highlighted by approximately 29,800
Cincinnati area records.

In addition to those additions, other significant additions to the database
include collections >from Germany, Romania (Arad), Czech Republic
(Praha-Zizkov and Straznice), France, Moldova, Turkey (Istanbul), Croatia
(Zagreb), Colombia (Medellin), Ukraine (Dnipropetrovsk) and the United
States. Please see www.jewishgen.org/databases/Cemetery/tree/CemList.htm for
a complete listing of all cemeteries in JOWBR.

I want to particularly thank Eric Feinstein who has been finding and gaining
permission to add many non-US records >from Germany, France and
under-represented countries. Eric's group of volunteers includes Sandra
Bennet, Lyn Bos, Malka Chosnek, George Goldschmied, Ann Meddin Hellmann,
Maurice Kessler, Hans Nord, Marilyn Shalks, Deborah Ross, Suzanne Tarica,
and Simon Zelman. In addition, a big thank you to our volunteer
transliterators, led by Gilberto Jugend, without whom we would not be able
to add the information >from some very difficult to read photos.

We appreciate all the work our donors have done and encourage you to make
additional submissions. Whether you work on a cemetery / cemetery section
individually or consider a group project for your local Society, temple or
other group, it's your submissions that help grow the JOWBR database and
make it possible for researchers and family members to find answers they
otherwise might not. Please also consider other organizations you may be
affiliated with that may already have done cemetery indexing that would
consider having their records included in the JOWBR database.

JewishGen is proud to announce its 2017 year-end update for the Memorial
Plaques Database (MPD). The MPD database can be accessed at
http://www.jewishgen.org/databases/Memorial/ The MPD database includes the
data >from plaques and Yizkor lists >from synagogue and other organizations.
Many of these sources include patronymic information.

This update added approximately 12,000 records and 1,800 photos >from 11
synagogues in the United States, Hungary and Tunisia. This update brings the
Memorial Plaques holdings to 169,000 records and 117,000 photos from
approximately 260 synagogues / institutions representing 11 countries.

We believe that the MPD is a good example of how users of JewishGen's
databases can "give back". If you are a member of a synagogue or other
organization with memorial plaques or Yizkor lists, please consider helping
us to grow this database. You can find more information on submitting data
at http://www.jewishgen.org/databases/Memorial/Submit.htm If you have

AustriaHungary gazetteer of 1900 online! #poland

Phyllis Kramer
 

In 1900 the Austria-Hungarian Empire conducted a thorough review of
every city, town and hamlet - 14 volumes in all. Although the detailed
documents were destroyed, a summary of every town is available..and
much of it is on line too! Alas, this census included no
surnames....but

Would you want to know how many
people/Jews/synagogues/acres/houses/pigs/ were in your shtetl in 1900?
Those answers are (in German) in the Gemeindelexikon der im Reichsrate
vertretenen Konigreiche und Lander...or the Gazetteer of the Crown
Lands and Territorieskl Volume 12: Galizien (Galicia) Vienna, 1907.

I found this Galician gazetteer online (the LDS has microfilms) on the
genealogy wiki. for Galicia, go to
http://wiki-de.genealogy.net/w/index.php?title=Datei:Oesterreich-12.djvu&page=1

Here are the steps (browsing will waste much time)
1.start at the Halychina Genealogy web site at
http://www.halgal.com/gemeindelexikon.html) and read the explanation,
2.download their wonderful town finding aid from
http://galiziengermandescendants.org/Data/galizien_village_finding_aid.pdf;
this will give you the page number for your town; there are two items
for each town...administrative information and
schools/churches/synagogues...that is why there are two sets of pages
for each town.

for instance (and these are approximate),
Brody pp 54-61 & 835, Jaslo 249 & 866,
Kolomea 290-293 & 875, Krakau 304-313 & 878,
Lemburg 336-43 & 883,
Przemysl 480-485 & 908, Rohatyn 522-9 & 916.
Rzeszow 556-563 & 921,
Stanislau 630-7 & 908, Stryj 648-55 & 937, Tarnow 692-701& 944
Use the + to make the image larger, and the previous/next page to
browse. The right column shows the administrative information
(abbreviations are described on page 9) and the index to all towns
begins at page 965

By the way, this pdf is a fabulous downloadable tool to understand the
administrative districts for every galician town!

Happy Hunting!!

ViewMate translation request - Russian #poland

Dear Fellow Researchers,

I'm trying to track the origins of my grandmother family - OSELKA.
I know that her grandparents names were Pinches and Rojza and I
managed what I believe is their marriage record >from Minsk Mazowiecki
dating 1873 which can be a good start.
In addition I found a birth record of OSELKA Pinkus which based on the
year and location seems to fit.
Any information which could be extracted >from the marriage record
would be very helpful in trying to cross those records and possibly
get additional information about the origins of the family.

I would highly appreciate a translation >from Russian of the marriage
record. It is on ViewMate at the following address:

Thank you so much,Dror Bereznitsky

(Praha-Zizkov and Straznice), France, Moldova, Turkey (Istanbul), Croatia
(Zagreb), Colombia (Medellin), Ukraine (Dnipropetrovsk) and the United
States. Please see www.jewishgen.org/databases/Cemetery/tree/CemList.htm for
a complete listing of all cemeteries in JOWBR.

I want to particularly thank Eric Feinstein who has been finding and gaining
permission to add many non-US records >from Germany, France and
under-represented countries. Eric's group of volunteers includes Sandra
Bennet, Lyn Bos, Malka Chosnek, George Goldschmied, Ann Meddin Hellmann,
Maurice Kessler, Hans Nord, Marilyn Shalks, Deborah Ross, Suzanne Tarica,
and Simon Zelman. In addition, a big thank you to our volunteer
transliterators, led by Gilberto Jugend, without whom we would not be able
to add the information >from some very difficult to read photos.

We appreciate all the work our donors have done and encourage you to make
additional submissions. Whether you work on a cemetery / cemetery section
individually or consider a group project for your local Society, temple or
other group, it's your submissions that help grow the JOWBR database and
make it possible for researchers and family members to find answers they
otherwise might not. Please also consider other organizations you may be
affiliated with that may already have done cemetery indexing that would
consider having their records included in the JOWBR database.

JewishGen is proud to announce its 2017 year-end update for the Memorial
Plaques Database (MPD). The MPD database can be accessed at
http://www.jewishgen.org/databases/Memorial/ The MPD database includes the
data >from plaques and Yizkor lists >from synagogue and other organizations.
Many of these sources include patronymic information.

This update added approximately 12,000 records and 1,800 photos >from 11
synagogues in the United States, Hungary and Tunisia. This update brings the
Memorial Plaques holdings to 169,000 records and 117,000 photos from
approximately 260 synagogues / institutions representing 11 countries.

We believe that the MPD is a good example of how users of JewishGen's
databases can "give back". If you are a member of a synagogue or other
organization with memorial plaques or Yizkor lists, please consider helping
us to grow this database. You can find more information on submitting data
at http://www.jewishgen.org/databases/Memorial/Submit.htm If you have
additional questions, please contact me directly.
