I have posted a photo that was taken of a Cousin in Palestine so I belive it is
pre 1947. The only cousin that lives in Israel (Palestine) pre 1947 was Ester
Yankelewitz. Does any one know her or the child, or the location in Israel.
Yankelewitz is her birth name her married name is unknown.

1941-1942 Lwow Jewish Registration Cards Follow-Up #galicia

Mark Jacobson
 

Hi fellow researchers,

This is a follow-up to my informational post made July 13th to
all researching Lwow/Lviv/Lemberg and the surrounding area. This
is regarding 13 LDS films of 1941-1942 Jewish Registration Cards
from the city of Lwow/Lviv/Lemberg (currently Lviv Ukraine,
formerly Lwow Poland and Lemberg Austrian Galicia) I found
through the Family Search (LDS) Library online catalogue
<http://www.familysearch.org/eng/Library/FHLC/frameset_fhlc.asp>

I have finally examined one film of these cards and will report
my findings. The film contains images of small printed cards,
both sides were filmed but most reverses are blank, others have
printing on them that tells me they were re-using old paper since
some have stamped years >from the 1930s or they are other types of
cards cut in half. The obverse of each card is identical; at the
top is printed Judische Gemeinde der Stadt Lemberg
Evidenz-Abteilung. A rough online translation says it means
Jewish Community of the city of Lemberg Evidence-Division.

Below that heading are 6 numbered columns; surname, given name,
birth date, address with street and number, occupation, and
comments. Most cards were filled out very briefly, most just with
name, year or date of birth and address, sometimes occupation.
All I saw were living at addresses within the city of Lwow, not
other towns or cities.

The cards apparently were listing all Jews in the city; I saw
elderly people as well as very young children, some born in 1940
or 1941. No places of birth are listed. The cards are not dated
and are not signed by anyone but the film header card >from the
Lviv Archive says they are >from 1941-1942. The cards are in rough
alphabetical order arranged by first letter of last name, some
are alphabetical after that while others are out of order.

Best of luck on your searches!

Polish translation from viewmate #general

arroyolynn@...
 

Dear Fellow Genners,

I have just posted a document on Viewmate that I got >from a microfilm >from LDS. It
is in Polish and I am asking for help to translate the entire document for me
including the margin area and any signatures at the bottom. Some of those names at
the bottom are in Hebrew or Yiddish.

The document is supposedly a birth record for Hersz Dawid Troianski >from 1826. I am
hoping that it will reveal information >from my father's side of the family, and I
think this might be the son of my g-g-grandfather Chune Efraim which would make him
the brother of my great-grandfather, Chaim Mortka Troyansky who was born in 1820.

I have had no luck whatsoever in finding Chaim, or the family in Talnoye and/or
Romanivka (near Uman), Ukraine, although the Ellis Island passenger manifest
records his entry into the US. and the 1920 census shows him and his wife living in
Manhattan. Of note is that Chaim died in 1923 at the age of 103 years.

One reason I think this man, Hersz Dawid Troianski may be related is that my
father, David Troyansky, might have been named for him. Additionally, my mother
always told me that my Yiddish middle name, Tzvia, was derived >from an uncle named
Hersh.

I found Chaim's tombstone in Mt. Zion Cemetery in Queens, NY where it says his
father was Chune Efraim, and his death certificate lists his father as Chaunan
(Chune) Troyansky and his mother as Goldie Cohen. I cannot find this family
anywhere in Ukraine for any year.

Thanks in advance for any help that anyone can give.

Re: Linking Trees #general

Adiva Bloch
 

On ancestry, you can invite people to your tree, but not necessarily give access to
edit. Also, it allows you to see what the source is that came up with information
and attach it directly to the person. And, as jewishgen is now affiliated with
ancestry and the search results turn up the jewish records, those can be directly
attached as well.

On geni, you can edit how far out you want to receive reminders of birthdays, etc.
And, at the top of a person's page it tells you what the relationship is to the
person logged in and shows you how the connection is made. IMO, this site is good
for keeping in contact with family (even distant ones) and remembering to send
greetings on those special occasions.

I am not saying it is necessarily a good idea to combine trees, but if a person
wants to...

BACHMANN descendants #germany

Arthur Obermayer <obermayer@...>
 

I am trying to locate some relatives who are the descendants of David
BACHMANN and Emma OBERMAYER(born about 1840 in Augsburg, Bavaria).

Their children, all of whom lived in New York City, were Elsa who married
Gustav EMMERICH, Isaac David BACHMANN who married Simca LUBELSKI, and
Bertha who married Alphonse MOSES. These children and in-laws would
probably have been born between 1860 and 1880.

Can anyone make connections?

New York City Rabbi's Synagogue #general

I'm looking for the name, address and phone number of the synagogue that a rabbi by
the name of Julius (Julian) Bresler (Bressler) may have been affiliated with. He
is listed as the Rabbi on a 1894 marriage cert.(#408)>from NYC. You can see it on
viewmate #13315.

I am sure that the synagogue is long gone, but its records may have been passed on,
so a current name, address, and phone number are needed.

Actually, what I am looking for is info on the two people he married on Jan 2,
1894. They were Solomon Brandt, son of Gershon Brandt and Sheitl Hyman. The
future wife was a Rachael Pikholtz, daughter of Max Pikholtz and Ellen Rosenbaum.

This marriage cert. is the only info I have been able to find on the newly weds, or
either of the parents (Both sides).

Any ideas- I out of them.

Dear Lisbeth,

The site that you have looked is only in its earliest formation. It
will probably be several years at least before it is fully functional,
and there will be an English language link, too. This was the
information given to us by Dr. Dobrincu at the Philadelphia Conference.
The economy in Romania is also in a free fall, so it may even be longer
than that till they have the funds to do what Dr. Dobrincu hopes to have
available eventually.

As he has said it is still necessary for anyone outside of the country,
who cannot come in person, to make use of researchers in the country.
He could not, or would not, name any for us. There is simply not enough staff
or funds to handle mail requests for research or documents.

For those who plan to go to Romania he has now done away with the old
law that required that one write months in advance to request permission
to enter the Archives. Anyone can now do that. There are also copy
machines, where one is permitted to make 1000 copies for the amazing
fee of 20 cents! And digital cameras are now permitted. In addition,
one can now request 15 files in a day, up >from the previous limit of
10. So he is slowly making small steps in a very difficult , and
often hostile environment.
