Rabbi Eliasz Nuchem HALPERN, 1789-1869, Piatek, Poland #rabbinic

colleen@...
 

Hi Listers,

I just joined the list, and am interested in any information on Rabbi
Eliasz Nuchem HALPERN of Piatek. He was married to Jette Neyfelt, and had
the following known children, all born in Piatek:

Mosek (b abt 1810)
Ryfke (b abt 1813)
Itzik (b abt 1818)
Brana (b abt 1825)
Szyfra (b 15 Aug 1826)
Laja (b 4 Mar 1828)
Fiszel (b 4 Jan 1830)
Jackwet (b 14 Aug 1831)
Gitel (b 1832)

I am in touch with descendants of Mosek and Jackwet. The family genealogy
of Mosek's line in fairly complete. Jackwet's has many holes in it, and I
know nothing about the others.

I am interested in knowing if descendants of any of the Halperns moved
further south >from Piatek into the Sandomiertz or Rozwadow area (now a
part of Stelowa Walo).

Thanks,

Colleen Fitzpatrick

ALHANATI Family of Larissa #sephardic

Michael Waas
 

Hi,

I am interested in learning more about the well-known ALHANATI family
of Larissa. I am familiar with Edras Moissis' book on Larissa and in
fact have it in my collection and I am also familiar with Raphael
Frezis' book on the community in Volos. It appears that they also
intermarried with my family based on recent discoveries through the
SAMI (SHAMI, spelled Shin Alef Mem Yud in Hebrew) family.

Sept. 9th JGS (NY) meeting #romania

The Jewish Genealogical Society invites you to attend its next meeting - "The Next Generation -
Genealogical and Archival Databases: Retooling the Tools."

Sunday, September 9, 2012 at 2:00 P.M.
Center for Jewish History
15 West 16th St.
New York, NY

Speakers: Miriam Weiner and Michael Glickman

This program is a joint presentation by Miriam Weiner, President of the Routes to Roots
Foundation (RTRF), and Michael Glickman, Chief Operating Officer of the Center for Jewish
History (CJH), featuring a visual presentation of the new collaboration between RTRF and
CJH. The RTRF website includes a comprehensive searchable archive database covering document
holdings relevant to Jewish life in five countries (and portions of two others) in Central and Eastern
Europe, an image database, and several searchable name databases for various localities. The CJH
website features its Online Public Access Catalog (OPAC) which integrates the holdings of CJH's five
partners into one searchable database, as well as separate pages for each of the five partners and a
page for the Ackman & Ziff Family Genealogy Institute.
The lecture will be the first public viewing of the new OPAC database with the integration of the RTRF
and image databases, thereby expanding access to valuable historical and genealogical material
from both collections. This collaboration is the first of several which are in process at CJH. Mr. Glickman
will also discuss the robust efforts underway to expand access to digital material and the collections of
the CJH partners.

The program is free to members of JGSNY and CJH; there is a $5 charge for guests.

The Ackman & Ziff Family Genealogy Institute at CJH will be open at 11:00 A.M. with access to
research materials and computers.

Was the first name "Gilbert" used in Romania? #romania

A big thank you to Sorin Goldenberg who helped answer this question.
I missed using a wonderful resource,
the "Genealogy Indexer" which can be found at

Here I found directories >from Romania and any question about certain
names being used there were
immediately answered.  I will add that it can be done for many

Nowy Zmigrod Records Indexed by JRI-Poland #galicia

Eden Joachim <esjoachim@...>
 

This message is prompted by a recent article in The Galitzianer.

There are always newcomers to family history research in Galicia. Many of
you may not be familiar with the work of Jewish Records Indexing - Poland.
Some longer term researchers may also not be aware of the JRI-Poland
database or projects of JRI-Poland, <www.jri-poland.org>.

Jewish Records Indexing - Poland indexed all available records for Nowy
Zmigrod in 2006 under what is known as the JRI-Poland PSA Project.

The PSA project includes all Nowy Zmigrod Birth records for the years
1866-1873 and 1875-1889. Included are a couple of late registrations
for births in 1848 and 1854. There are no entries for 1874. The file
includes 1,392 birth entries in total.

This information was added to the JRI-Poland database in January 2011
where it is fully searchable. A comparison of the JRI-Poland index against
the listing in The Galitzianer indicates the JRI-Poland data is more
extensive and because it was created by a professional in Poland, likely has
the most accurate translations.

If you have an interest in Nowy Zmigrod records, feel free to contact me. I
can explain how JRI-Poland projects are managed, how to support the
indexing, provide you with Surname Frequency lists >from the projects and
let you know of those projects which may not have yet been publicized.

New Project - Russian Jewish Fallen Soldiers of WW1 #lithuania

Joel Ratner
 

Lists of Russian casualties >from WWI have become available for the years
1914 - 1916. This project endeavors to create databases containing the
names of Jewish soldiers and all pertinent information and make them
available to the Jewish genealogical community. It is not yet known if
additional lists covering the rest of 1916 through 1918 will be scanned
and made available.
Although there are over 50,000 pages of records, many of them contain no
names identified in the records as being Jewish. Many of the gubernias
also did not have the sizeable Jewish populations prevalent in others. For
gubernias with sizable numbers of Jews, the ratio of non-Jewish to Jewish
soldiers listed is still rather large. The bottom line here is this project
is not that large for any one SIG, as the Jewish soldiers listed
(estimated) amount to a few to possibly a few thousand for the largest
Jewish areas. Gubernii which represent Polish areas are included in these
listings.

The lists obtained so far are contained in over 60 books, most of which
are over 300 pages each. The lists were compiled by gubernia with each list
containing an issue number.

The following fields are contained in the records:
Family Name
Given Name
Patronymic
Rank
Religion
Marital Status
Gubernia (where the list was compiled)
Uyezd (district where soldier originated)
Town (town where soldier originated)
Status
Date

The project has been organized in an open format. The idea is to make the
template available to anyone interested in working on records. The lists
will also be made available to those signing up and the desire is that
SIGs will establish groups to work on records for their gubernias of
interest ultimately uploading them to JewishGen for dissemination.
It will be up to the SIGs or other groups to enlist individuals capable
of properly working with these records. The good news regarding these
lists is they were printed and are not handwritten, making the work
much easier.

A template established for this project has fields for all data contained
in the original records plus a comments column to allow for notes.
The first records have been translated for Bessarabia, courtesy of Yefim
Kogan. A sample of these translations is contained in the template.
Obtaining access to the records

It is the hope that each SIG will assign a coordinator(s) and they should
join the Yahoo Group "Russian Jewish Fallen Soldiers of WWI". This group
has been formed to bring together individuals and groups interested in
participating. The template as well as links to the records will be
available on the site. It is anticipated a spreadsheet may be developed
to track who has signed up to work on records and prevent duplication of
effort. If a SIG signs up to coordinate activity for all records for an
entire gubernia or gubernii, the project will be greatly simplified.
Beyond providing the template and access to the records, the SIGs or
other interested groups will manage finding their volunteers, gathering
and proofing the translations once completed, and submitting to JewishGen
for upload.

3. Riga House Registers

The Riga House Register includes many Jews who were born in Lithuania and/or
East Prussia and is in an Excel spreadsheet.

You can learn more about the Klaipeda (Memel) District Research group,
including the towns that are included in the district at:

http://klaipeda.shutterfly.com

If you are researching any of the towns in Klaipeda (Memel) District, I
encourage you to make a contribution to support our record translation
efforts. To make a contribution to the group, please go to:

http://www.litvaksig.org/contribute

select General and, in the NOTES - Enter Shtetl and key in Klaipeda.

A qualifying contribution requires a donation of at least $100 to help
defray the cost of translations, but smaller amounts are always welcome as
well.

Please let me know if you have any questions or need more information about
the group.

Many thanks!
