Radom Books of Residents Project - UPDATE #poland

Carol Isaak
 

I am pleased to share the latest news about the indexing of the
Jewish entries in the Books of Residents for the city of Radom.

The indexing of these volumes is part of the Jewish Records
Indexing - Poland Archives (JRI-Poland) project.

The file now contains 21,000 entries - that's 4,000 more since the
previous announcement one month ago. The final count will be
between 35,000 - 40,000. Each entry includes Name, Surname,
Father Name, Mother Name, Mother Maiden Name, Date and
Place of Birth and Occupation. In some cases, the Date of Death
or other notes are included.

There are now 4,154 distinct surnames or variations of surnames
in the database. That's 500 more since last month. A list of all
surnames appearing 70 or more times is included below.
A surname frequency list is available upon request.

There are now 790 towns (in addition to Radom) listed as birth
location. That's 70 more since last month. A list of all towns
appearing 25 or more times is included below. A town
frequency list is available upon request.

The cost of indexing the Radom Books of Residents is expected
to be approximately $8500 to $9000. Researchers making a
Qualifying Contribution of no less than $150 will be eligible to
obtain a copy of the Excel file with all 35,000 - 40,000 entries.

A file with the currently available 21,000+ entries will be available
immediately to Qualifying Contributors. Previously Qualified
Contributors will receive the new file immediately.

Former President of Brazil's Family #latinamerica

Marcia Kuusisto <DynamoPortuguese@...>
 

Good Day!

Could you please help me with my search on sugar cane Land Lords in
Pernambuco, Brazil?

Last name (usually together): Affonso de Mello

The former President of Brazil, Fernando Affonso Collor de Mello, is
descendent >from those Land Lords.

Did Manuel Affonso de Mello, Collor de Mello's grandfather, a Land Lord in
the 1800s or late 1700s go to Brazil >from Holland or Portugal?

I've heard Manuel's wife was Dutch.

Any luck for me?

Thank you so much.

Sincerely,

Marcia Affonso de Mello Kuusisto, MSCE

MODERATOR NOTE: Welcome to the LatamSIG list Marcia. In future postings it would

Re: Landsmanshaften & Burial Societies #poland

Bialystoker
 

As the Moderator pointed out the JGS of New York has some
lists of Landsmanschaften. They also have a searchable
database of Burial Societies in the New York area at
http://www.jgsny.org/searchcity.htm.

Although New York City was not the only city with these
Jewish beneficial societies, these collections are the only
source I know for tracking down such information.

Also, you may want to contact the Museum of Family History
(see http://www.museumoffamilyhistory.com/main.htm). Steve
Lasky has created a very useful website with a Cemetery
project that has information about landsmanschaften plots in
the New York area as well as some other locations.

Re: Tykocin Synagogue Records #poland

Bialystoker
 

Dear George:

JRI-Poland has indexed all the available Tykocin records
from 1868 through 1900. These are searchable at the
JRI-Poland website at www.jri-poland.org and click on Search
database. All available records >from 1826 through 1867 will
soon be indexed and will be placed online in the future.

I have personally visited the Tykocin Museum and asked the
Museum director for historical information about the Jews of
Tykocin. In return, they provided a 1905 Property Tax list
for Jews, which is being translated, and a few other minor
lists.

Other than the records listed on Miriam Weiner's Routes to
Roots Foundation Archive Database at www.rtrfoundation.org,
there just may not be any other Jewish records of Tykocin.

Descendants of Tykocin Jews are fortunate to have a wealth
of civil records available -- all of which are being indexed
by JRI-Poland.

I've just started looking for records of the Avram
Olstein (Olsztejn) family in Tykocin/Bialystok. I
didn't get many hits for ANY Olsztejns in JRI-Poland
database.

Anyone know if the Tykocin synagogue has records & is
anyone translating/indexing them?

As the Moderator pointed out the JGS of New York has some
lists of Landsmanschaften. They also have a searchable
database of Burial Societies in the New York area at
http://www.jgsny.org/searchcity.htm.

Although New York City was not the only city with these
Jewish beneficial societies, these collections are the only
source I know for tracking down such information.

Also, you may want to contact the Museum of Family History
(see http://www.museumoffamilyhistory.com/main.htm). Steve
Lasky has created a very useful website with a Cemetery
project that has information about landsmanschaften plots in
the New York area as well as some other locations.

Where can I find a list of all the Landsmanshaften & Burial
Societies, associated with particular towns?

I am looking for these pertaining to Ruzhin, Ukraine; &
Jalowka,
Poland.

Thanks
David Gordon

MODERATOR'S NOTE: The JGS of New York has a page with
various landsmanshaft
lists at http://home.att.net/%7Elandsmanshaft/

Dear George:

JRI-Poland has indexed all the available Tykocin records
from 1868 through 1900. These are searchable at the
JRI-Poland website at www.jri-poland.org and click on Search
database. All available records >from 1826 through 1867 will
soon be indexed and will be placed online in the future.

I have personally visited the Tykocin Museum and asked the
Museum director for historical information about the Jews of
Tykocin. In return, they provided a 1905 Property Tax list
for Jews, which is being translated, and a few other minor
lists.

Other than the records listed on Miriam Weiner's Routes to
Roots Foundation Archive Database at www.rtrfoundation.org,
there just may not be any other Jewish records of Tykocin.

Descendants of Tykocin Jews are fortunate to have a wealth
of civil records available -- all of which are being indexed
by JRI-Poland.

Zvi Bernhardt of Yad Vashem has asked me to post this message
regarding difficulties experienced by researchers using the Yad
Vashem Database.

JewishGen VP, Data Acquisitions

On Yom Hashoah, we [Yad Vashem] put up a whole new site. We did this
in order to integrate a Russian interface for the site, a very
important move as we have also started a project to collect Pages of
Testimony among Russian speaking Jews. The project is currently
being carried out in the Ukraine and in Israel.

Like most new sites, the new site has bugs. We have sorted out most
of the bugs, but the site is still not as stable as the site we had
before Yom Hashoah. At this point, most of the time it works fine,
but the problems described below happens every few days. Our
computer people are working hard to solve the problem as quickly as
possible.

PLEASE write us at central.database@yadvashem.org.il if you encounter
technical problems with our site. We usually aren't able to answer
you quickly enough to help you, but you help us (and yourself in the
long run) by making sure we know all the problems that exist.
