Lwow photos sought by Henryk Gruder #poland

Marla Raucher Osborn <osborn@...>
 

Hello, dobry den, dzien dobry, and bonjour, The following was posted by
Henryk Gruder in the October 7, 2012 digest: "Is anybody aware of any
lists of pictures >from Lwow in early forties or late thirties: such as
police archives, or even >from the Getto (Judenrath for instance)? My
grandfather was a railway engineer. Perhaps Lwow's railway had its
archive? Lwow's Politechnika? Lwow's Gymnasium Szajnocha?"

Henryk, academic records >from the inter-War years for all Lwow schools
and universities can be found at the STATE ARCHIVE OF LVIV OBLAST IN LVIV
(known as DALO):
Website: http://www.archive.lviv.ua/en/
Address: Pidvalna St. 13, 79008, Lviv, Ukraine
Tel.: +38 (032) 272-07-14, 8 (032) 272-00-30;

I have had tremendous success in obtaining copies of academic records from
here. It is advisable to hire a local who is fluent in Ukrainian, and
a word of warning: the archive keeps odd hours and the process of
obtaining the records can be time-consuming. But, patience and courtesy will
reward!

As for photos, an excellent source is the Lviv Center For Urban History.
While they are primarily focused on architecture and historical
spaces in Lviv, including wonderful interactive maps, you never know
what else you may find in their collection. Here is their website:
http://lvivcenter.org/ Since your grandfather was a railway engineer,
you may wish to write them an email (several staff members speak
excellent English). There is a fairly good chance they may have something,
or at least be able to direct you in another direction. Not long after I
left=0ALviv last November, the Center had an exhibit specifically on the
railways:

A researcher / Guide / tips for Ukrainian Maramaros #subcarpathia

Orit Lavi
 

Dear Friends

We are planning a visit to Maramaros in the coming spring, and would
appreciate some advise.

1. The main aim of the visit is to locate 20th century records from
the period 1912 - 1918, >from Solotvyno (Aknaszlatina, across the Tisa
and close to Sighet).
I would appreciate a recommendation on a local guide / researcher, who
is experienced with obtaining similar records >from that area.
I have tried to obtain the records with the help of local researchers
from Romania, with no luck.
2. Do I need to bring with me some papers or otherwise, to obtain the
records? Any other advice on how to obtain records >from 1912 - 1918
from that town will be greatly appreciated.
3.We also plan to visit Yasinya (Korosmezo), and perhaps take
advantage of the visit and obtain some 20th century vital records from
there. Any tips?

4. We also plan to visit Sighet, Romania. Can we freely cross the
border between Solotvyno and Sighet?

Any additional advice will be appreciated.

Many thanks and happy Sukot to all

Doors open 12:30 p.m.; program begins 1:00 p.m.
