New Krakow WWII (under occupation) & Rudawka Maps in Gesher Galicia's Cadastral Map Room #general

Pamela Weisberger
 

Announcing three recent additions to the Gesher Galicia Cadastral Map Room:

Krakow Street Map Under Occupation ca. 1941

http://maps.geshergalicia.org/special/krakow-occupation-nd/

This important map showing Krakow (Cracow, Krakau) under German
occupation during WWII was provided to Gesher Galicia by the Jewish
Historical Institute of Warsaw, Poland. Four zones are highlighted by
hand, including the town center ('mixed/business district', A),
initial German residential area (B), extended German residential area
(C), and the ghetto ('Jewish residential', D). Streets are labeled
with their Polish names, but some are Germanized. The Kazimierz
district, two Jewish cemeteries and key churches are indicated, but not synagogues.

There are also two cadastral maps for two different towns named Rudawka:
one in Poland, the other about 40 kilometers NNW, across the border in Ukraine.

Rudawka Village Cadastral Map 1852 (Gmina Bircza)

http://maps.geshergalicia.org/cadastral/rudawka-1852/

This is a selectively-colored cadastral map of the village of Rudawka(now in the
Gmina Bircza of Poland), surveyed 1852 and lithographed 1854. The map shows no
village center or masonry buildings, but includes a modest estate and two small
Catholic chapels.

Rudawka Village Cadastral Map 1853 (Stary Sambor Raion)

http://maps.geshergalicia.org/cadastral/rudawka-rudavka-1853/

A complete, selectively-colored cadastral map of the village of Rudawka (Rudavka,)
now a defunct settlement in the Stary Sambor Raion of Ukraine, surveyed 1853 and
lithographed 1854. Covering a large but sparsely-populated village straddling the
Rudawka River with two other rivers flowing in, the map shows no village center or
masonry buildings, and only a tiny Catholic church.

(Note to researchers: there are several other formerly Galician towns with the name
of, or beginning with, Rudawka. Knowing the coordinates of "your" towns are key
when names are so similar.)

The link for the Canadian Jewish Heritage network that I posted yesterday is
no longer valid. The homepage may be found at http://www.cjhn.ca/en and the
advanced search page is http://www.cjhn.ca/en/explore/advanced-search.aspx .

Jewish Colonization Association files are included among the holdings -
however, there is no guarantee that even if your family were farmers in the
Canadian west, that there will be any records, but it is a possibility.

Lore - Sore #ukraine

Nancy Silverrod <nsilverrodg@...>
 

Many thanks to everyone who pointed out that I was likely misreading an
old-fashioned S for an old fashioned L, and that Sore was a nickname for
Sarah. One more little mystery solved about a relative whose existence I
only learned of a week ago!

Subject: Arrival Manifest Question
The cousin seems to think that this Lore
is Boris' sister Sarah. I can't find any indication anywhere that Lore
would be a nickname for Sarah, or vice-versa.

I am fairly sure that Lore would be Sarah because a capital "L" in cursive can look like and be confused with a capital "S" making the ancestor's name Sore which is close to the Yiddish for Sarah (pronounced Sureh in my family). When researching my ggm Sarah using soundex, I got several hits with the first name Sore.

Ref #2. The 19th century handwritten script capital S looks to today's readers like a capital L. The name may be Sore.

Dear All,
In the Russian Empire of the 19th century, day schools
(called cheder) were very common for Jewish boys. Cheder
teachers were called melamed, and each melamed had to obtain
a state teaching license to run the cheder and collect
tuition >from the parents. We are publishing the list
of the melameds of Mstislavl uezd, Mogilev guberniya who, in
1876, had obtained their teaching licenses.The list includes
melameds >from the following shtetls: MSTISLAVL, KAZIMIROVA
SLOBODA, KHISLAVICHI, MONASTYRSHCHINA, KLIMOVICHY, CHAUSY,

Searching for Hugo,book of WWI letters #belarus

naomi rosenthal <naomiro999@...>
 

After Ruth Marcus posted her review of my book Searching for Hugo recently,
some people have inquired about purchasing it. It is available on amazon.com
as well as several European Amazon sites. However, I would urge you to wait
a few weeks, as I am currently making slight corrections. For example, the
name of the secretary of the Jewish community in Grodno was misread >from his
signature as being Schulz, but his descendant has given the correct name as
Schulkes. The corrected version should be available on amazon.com by October 1,
and on the European sites a little later. For those who have any questions,
I invite you to contact me directly.
