Announcing Schedule for Linking Lublin PSA Images to JRI-Poland Index #poland

RobinnM@...
 

JRI-Poland is pleased to announce the schedule for the posting
of digital images of Jewish vital records online >from the holdings
of the Lublin branch of the Polish State Archives.

The Lublin branch holds the registers for the most towns with Jewish
records in Poland. It was the first to acquire sophisticated digitizing
equipment in 2005 and has been steadily scanning its holdings ever
since. We are most indebted to Director Piotr Dymmel and the staff
of the Lublin branch for this significant achievement.

End of June 2013: 48 towns (Annopol to Lubartow, not including Lublin)
Oct. 2013: 36 towns (Lukow to Zolkiewka)
Dec. 2013: City of Lublin

As JRI-Poland previously announced:

Over the next 4 to 5 years, the Polish State Archives will digitize
all vital records (Jewish and non-Jewish) and make them available
on the PSA National Digital Archives (NDA) or Regional
Archive website. There will be no charge for directly accessing
actual records of your ancestors and family.

Linking JRI-Poland search results to digital images.
~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~
When the JRI-Poland search results have been linked to the
record images it will be possible for researchers to click on
the image icon associated with the record and immediately
view the actual record for his/her ancestors.

But...there are more than 300,000 record entries to be linked
to digital images so there is much work to be done first.

Researchers with an interest in this project are invited to join
the JRI-Poland Lublin Archives "linking team." You do not
need to be able to read Polish or Russian. The only experience
needed is a familiarity with Excel along with a desire to
contribute your efforts to this important task.

To volunteer, please contact Robinn Magid at RobinnM@aol.com

Re: WW I Austro-Hungarian Soldier and Russian POW #galicia

Thanks to all who responded to my story and request for help. Many of you
had similar stories, but one of the respondents had proof. He found an
entry in a 1916 casualty list for my grandfather, showing his army unit, and
the name of his POW camp in Far Eastern Siberia. The story is true - and
verified. Wonderful!

Subject: WW I Austro-Hungarian Soldier and Russian POW


I am looking for help in verifying a story told to me by my grandfather.
Kiwa SCHWARZ claimed that he was drafted into the Austria-Hungarian army at
the beginning of WW I and was eventually captured by the Russians and spent
time in a POW camp in Siberia. He was living, at that time, in the village
of Niemirow, Galicia (now Nemiriv, Ukraine). I believe Niemirow was at that
time in the Rawa Ruska district, though also close to Lemberg.

My research suggests that the capture (if the story is true) might have
occurred after the siege of Przemsyl in early 1915, where more than 300,000
A-H troops were captured. The Austrian Military Museum in Vienna has offered
to do a search of their records, but wants a lot of money up front before
they start and give no guarantees (or refunds) if they find nothing. Any
suggestions?

The KAHAN family from Augustow #general

Gail Billow
 

Dear All,

I have yet another block in my family research. Hence, I'm turning again
to those with expertise, you. I need advice.

My children's grandmother was Betty nee KAHAN in the USA, born Rivka in
1889. She was one of 6 siblings, all born in Augustow Poland. On her
wedding certificate her father's name was Morris (Moishe) KAHAN and her
mother was Jennie Vilensky (possibly Sheina WILINSKI). Her parents remained
in Poland, but every child came to the USA/ Brooklyn New York.
She was the 1st to come to America In 1905. Her daughter said she sponsored
all her brothers and sisters: Sarah, Rose, Reisel, Abraham and Simon.
I was told that they all stayed initially with their sister in Brooklyn.
Rose married Bernard Wolfe. Sarah married Ruby Grabin (spelling?) and had 3
daughters: Marilyn, Arlene and unknown. I do not know if Reisel married,
nor if Rose and Bernard had children (not by 1920). US census records indicate
that Abraham (b 1893) married Sylvia and had daughters Miriam and Harriet.
Simon (b 1894) married Miriam and had 3 children: Freida, Irving and Judith.
I have limited additional information, but I can't find descendants.
Where do I go >from here?

Thank you,

Re: looking for researcher #romania

Marianne,

Have you looked at the Rom-Sig databases online, as well as JOWBR,
Holocaust database, etc. ? In addition there is the enormous Iasi
project, for example, much of which we hope to have online in time for
the Conference. We have been reporting about this for months. None of
this work can occur without volunteers to translate, proofread, do data
enter, and donors to provide the money for us to acquire these records
from the Romanian archives! We have been reporting on these
activities, and asking for volunteers and donors for months. We are on
a tremendous roll, acquiring as many records as possible, but it is the
membership that must respond to help.

If you wish to know about researchers you need only to contact the
Co-Coordinators of the SIG.

As to the situation in Chicago, I have no answer, Perhaps there was no
one there who was interested in hosting a Romania booth. WE will have a
table at the SHARE Fair in Chicago, and will also be givng the details
of our accomplishments at our SIG meeting, as well as asking for more
volunteers.

We hope to see you there!

ROM-SIG is in the process of creating databases for Romania records

July. They will include some records >from Iasi and Dorohoi. I hope
that you will be able to find some relatives in the databases.

The Family History LIbrary was not allowed to film records in Romania
and they were not available. Now we have people in Romania who are
photographing the Jewish records in the archives. We need people to
take pictures at the archives who are dependable. We would like to
find other people who can help get more records for us.

We have marriage records >from Iasi >from 1866 to 1905 and births from

RUBIN/DULBERG Families #ukraine

Michael Waas
 

Hi,

I just recently joined the Ukraine-SIG, though why I waited this long,
I do not know as I have connections to both northern and western
Ukraine in my family. For this email, I am interested in learning more
about my great-great grandmother's family, the RUBIN's. My g-g
grandmother Jennie RUBIN and her sister Mina (Minnie) arrived in the
US sometime before 1894 and were joined later by their full brother,
step-mother, and half-siblings. Jennie was the daughter of Shmuel
David RUBIN and Rivka DULBERG. The closest idea to where I know they
are >from is somewhere north of Kiev. The surname may have been RUBINOV
as that is how it appears on her brother's emigration in 1902. The
town her brother emigrated >from was Sabha and the town her step-mother
and half-siblings came >from was Shostka. They are connected to the
GERMAN/HERMAN family (which I believe is through the DULBERG family
but I know little beyond that).

Just to summarize, this is the family as I know it:
Shmuel David RUBIN married Rebeka DULBERG and had four children
(Brucha, married to a HERMAN, Mina, married in NJ, Emanuel Mendel,
married in NY, and Jennie, born in 1879 and married to Morris AMDUR in
NY). Rebeka died sometime after Jennie was born and Shmuel remarried a
woman named Jennie/Zelda and had at least four more children (Chaje,
Aisick who became Isidor, Rosa, and Rissie). Rissie married Louis
BROOK and died in NY.

If anyone can point me to info concerning the towns and possibly the
families as well as if they are either related or know of any of the
families of the half-siblings and what became of Brucha, I would be
most appreciative.

All the best,
