Re: * Land restitution in the Slovak Republic #hungary

Amos Israel Zezmer <zezmer@...>
 

The site is not clear as to what documentation we need to provide.

I found my grandfather's property. All his children have already died.

We are now six grandchildren living in Israel and Brazil.

What is the Slovak government expecting in terms of documentation?
Especially three months >from the deadline.

Are we expected to submit the documentation in Slovak, a language that
no speaks or understands?

I am trying to find information about my great grandfather Moise

know how to spell the name of the town but it sounds like Hun-yod
(>from my Grandmother). He married a Rachael OHLBAUM.
Any leads or information would be greatly appreciated.

I am trying to find out if family rumors are true that Hungarian

Were there Sephardic Jews in this part of Hungary/Romania?
Did they have Hungarian, German, or other Surnames?

Re: Pogroms in central Ukraine - Vinittsya oblast -- circa 1916-1918 #ukraine

| Does anyone know of any pogroms that occurred in central Ukraine sometime

| I wonder if my uncle, 87 yrs old when interviewed, confused roving bands

| Charles Millman

According to correspondence >from the late Marshall Frenkel, whose ancester
Moisei Frenkel (1880-1916) owned a sawmill near Zhitomir (not terribly far from
Vinnitsya), his employees, who were Ukrainian "muzhiks," requested "a few days
free time so that they could take part in a pogrom that they heard was going to
happen in a nearby shtetl." Unfortunately, there is no specific date associated
with this event, but it must have been sometime between 1900 and 1916 and the
general impression given is that this sort of thing was not entirely uncommon
during that period and that these were local affairs and were not instituted by
external forces. When Moisei died, a previously "friendly" band of Cossacks
looted the mill. Later, his foreman, another Cossack, helped the family escape
to Poland after the "Bolsheviks confiscated all property." So, it would seem the
children of Moisei were able to distinguish between the actions of the local
population and those of the Bolsheviks, and you should probably give the benefit
of the doubt to your uncle in this regard as well.

Shtetls of Podolia (1883) #ukraine

N.C. Gabriel <uy9p1@...>
 

Dear Members of the Ukraine SIG,

I would like to present the following list of 140
Shtetls in the 12 Uyezds of Podolia Guberniya as a
POSSIBLY comprehensive list of all (or most) of the
Shtetls of Podolia Guberniya that existed in 1883.

My source for the information was the following:
http://www.shtetlinks.jewishgen.org/Litin/taxes.html

My source for the Russian spelling of the names of the
Shtetls was the following:
http://www.shtetlinks.jewishgen.org/Litin/taxes1883-3.html

I would like to credit Rose Feldman for finding the
document and The Central Archives for the History of
the Jewish People in Jerusalem for preserving it.

The distance >from Kiev refers to the chief town of the
Uyezd (the Uyezds were named after the chief towns).

Using ShtetlSeeker I have identified the various
Shtetls to the best of my ability. Where there are no
geographical co-ordinates I was not able to identify
the Shtetl and I have left the name of those Shtetls
in their adjective form as they appear on the list.

I have included the number of males in each Shtetl who
paid "Box Tax and Candle Tax" for the sake of
comparison.

Shtetls of Podolia Guberniya that existed in 1883.

My source for the information was the following:
http://www.shtetlinks.jewishgen.org/Litin/taxes.html

My source for the Russian spelling of the names of the
Shtetls was the following:
http://www.shtetlinks.jewishgen.org/Litin/taxes1883-3.html

I would like to credit Rose Feldman for finding the
document and The Central Archives for the History of
the Jewish People in Jerusalem for preserving it.

The distance >from Kiev refers to the chief town of the
Uyezd (the Uyezds were named after the chief towns).

Using ShtetlSeeker I have identified the various
Shtetls to the best of my ability. Where there are no
geographical co-ordinates I was not able to identify
the Shtetl and I have left the name of those Shtetls
in their adjective form as they appear on the list.

I have included the number of males in each Shtetl who
paid "Box Tax and Candle Tax" for the sake of
comparison.

Poland's Partitions and origin of the Jewish surnames #galicia

Alexander Sharon
 

Dear Galitzyaners,

As continuation on the Poland's Partitions subject, please allow me to
initiate discussion on the origin of the Jewish surnames in Galicia and
lands that were under the Prussia and Austria rules, since they are closely
related.

All of us have been always interested with the issue of the origin of the
Jewish surnames since this is our only link to the written genealogical
records.

Galicia

As it is generally known, Galician Jews have been compelled to adopt German
sounding surnames in 1787 during Joseph II, Empress Maria Theresa's son
rule, following the introduction in 1781 the first genuine reforms in
Central Europe - Judenreformen und Toleranzpatent (Jew-reforms and Edicts of
Tolerance).

When in 1772 during the 1st Partition, Austria has captured new lands, which
covered all of Western and Eastern Galicia, the Empire 1787 rule of surname
adoption was extended to the all territories. This also included parts of
Wolyn and Podolia that have captured by Austria at the same time.

This rule was extended to the regions of Sandomierz, Lublin and Radom
acquired by Austria on 1795.

Prussia

Prussia introduced similar to the Austrian law in 1797 known as
Judenregelment and forced the
use of Germanic surnames on the Jewish population of captured during three
Partitions:

Pomorze (Gdansk), Chelmno, Warmia part of Wielkopolska with Bydgoszcz,
Torun and Malbork
were captured in 1772. This territory became known as West Prussia.

Following Prussian 1793 acquisitions (2nd Partition) the rest of
Wielkopolska (Gniezno, Poznan), Plock, Lodz, Czestochowa regions were also
incorporated and became known as South Prussia.

1795 (3rd Partition) Prussian new acquisitions of Mazowsze (included
Warsaw) became known as Mazovia, and NW region west of Niemen River
(Bialystok) was named New East Prussia.
The new territory located south of Czestochowa was named New Silesia.

[E.T.A ( Ernest Theodor Amadeus Hoffmann, a vicious anti-Semitic Prussian
law officer was placed in charge of the enforcing Germanic sounding surnames
through the new Prussian territories.

Hoffmann developed a list of an 'acceptable' for Jews surnames, and he and
his malignant staff clerks foisted unpleasant surnames on the poor Jews, who
were unable to came up with a bribe to secure a 'pleasant' surname.
Hoffmann became later famous after the publication of opera "The Tales of
Hoffmann".]

Russia

Russia has introduce law for surnames use for Jews in 1804 during but in
reality start enforcing this policy only in 1834.

And this is my point - Jewish people that have been under Austrian or
Prussian reign prior to 1815 Vienna Congress have been already given German
sounding surnames which have been later accepted by the Russian
administration.
And this is a main reason for the Jews having German sounding surnames
through the Congress Poland.

Thank you, Alexander, for this interesting account. With your permission,
though, I would like to point out that, to the best of my understanding,
although Radom, Lublin and Sandomierz were annexed to Austria during the
third partition, in the Vienna Congress they were integrated into the
Congress Poland Autonomy ruled by the Czar. They were part of Austria for
only 20 years, >from 1795 to 1815.
Thank you , Lancy for the comment.

This exactly what I had in mind when I wrote previously that Austria has
lost to Russia nearly all lands acquired in 1795:

It should be noted again, that there were territorial readjustment made
during 1815 Vienna Congress when Austria has lost to the victorious Russia
Zamosc region, parts of Wolyn and Podolia and nearly all lands acquired in
1795 with exception of the City of Krakow.
Nevetheless, those 20 years when Austria ruled over the parts of Podolia,
Wolynia, Lublin, Radom, Lublin and Prussia ruled over Warsaw, Bialystok,
Lomza and Suwalki had a significant influence on the Jewish people.

1877~1881 Lwow Birth Record Form-Cyrillic #galicia

Pamela Weisberger <pweisberger@...>
 

Regarding the question Mark Halpern posed recently:

<<Lwow researcher Feige Stern has posted three Lwow birth records to
ViewMate. They are:

http://data.jewishgen.org/ViewMate/ALL/viewmateview.asp?key=6138
http://data.jewishgen.org/ViewMate/ALL/viewmateview.asp?key=6139
http://data.jewishgen.org/ViewMate/ALL/viewmateview.asp?key=6140

I have personally never seen this exact form. The headings of the form are
the normal Polish and German ones, but there is an third Cyrillic language.
Can anyone tell me what language this is and why a third language is
included here. My understanding is that the Austrian Government required
only Polish and German and that the record itself had to be recorded in one
of these two languages.

Thanks for any thought you may have about this.>>

Here are some answers I've gathered >from two native speakers of Ukrainian
and Russian:

This Cyrillic writing represents some sort of official language: an
"absolutely awful mixture of mainly
Ukrainian with a little Russian additions." It was used in the
Austrian-Hungarian Empire primarily for documents, but is absolutely NOT a
"living" language. This "language" was even used in Czechoslovakia (court,
notary's office etc) until the World War II.

An example of what is found in this text: in the heading of column 7, the
fourth word (split between 2 lines) is "Matepbl," which in the Latin script
is "Mater" and the last two letters are not really letters at all, but
rather a "hard sound" sign. This sign doesn't exist in Ukrainian, but does
in Russian. Both languages use the opposite "soft sound" sign, b, like our
lowercase b (called a mee-yak-ees-nok).

Although Galician metrical records were usually written in Latin, Polish and
German, in the middle of the 19th century, as nationalism began to take
shape, one could see more Polish and Ukrainian in these records. It's
interesting to think of an empire that encompassed so many different
countries and nationalities trying to balance the different languages used
by the populace against their own political interests...which eventually
resulted in this hodgepodge compendium of Ukrainian and Russian officialese,
showing up in these Lvov records posted to Viewmate.
