Announcing the Rohatyn BoF Meeting: IAJGS Paris July 15, 2012 #poland

Marla Raucher Osborn <osborn@...>
 

Dear researchers,

I am very pleased to announce that there will be a Rohatyn Birds of a
Feather (BOF) meeting on the opening day of the 32nd Annual IAJGS
Conference this summer in Paris, Sunday, 15 July 2012 at 5:00 p.m
This meeting is open to anyone with family connections to the
Galician town of Rohatyn, or is generally interested in learning more
about the town, its former Jewish community, and Jewish research sources
abroad.

The following is a synopsis. Today, Rohatyn is located in western
Ukraine, less than two hours' drive south >from the beautiful historic
city of Lviv (formerly, Lemberg and Lwow). In many ways, Rohatyn was
- and is - a typical eastern Galician town: during the inter-War years
its population was 50% Jewish; at the outbreak of WWII, its population
was 1/3 Polish, 1/3 Jewish, and 1/3 Ukrainian. It was multi-lingual and
culturally vibrant, and was commercially linked by rail to Lwow, Tarnopol,
and Chernivtsi. Many Rohatyn Jewish families sent their sons and daughters
to prestigious academic Universities in Krakow, Vienna, Prague, and
Budapest, and maintained strong business connections as well to these
urban "jewels" in the crown of the Austro-Hungarian Empire.

The Rohatyn BOF meeting will be conducted by Marla Raucher Osborn, a
member of the Board of Directors of Gesher Galicia. Over 2011, Marla
spent five months living and researching in Lviv, making more than half a
dozen trips to Rohatyn. Marla will discuss her Rohatyn trips and discoveries
as well as the undertaking of a long-term project to recover the Jewish
headstone fragments still found around the town today and their return to
Rohatyn's former Jewish cemetery. She will also present slides and
other information about the box of Jewish paper scraps discovered in the
2011 renovation of a building that housed the Rohatyn Judenrat during the
Nazi occupation, the proposed future plans for translating and exhibiting
of these rare and important artifacts, and her meetings with various
townspeople and officials during 2011. Marla will also talk about the
Rohatyn Shtetl Research Group, founded in 2009 by Dr. Alex Feller, today
with more than 150 members worldwide, all of whom have family or historic
connections to the town, like herself.

Time permitting, Marla will also share examples of the many and varied
types of records she has obtained across western and central Europe for
her Rohatyn family (>from sources in Lviv, Vienna, Krakow, Warsaw, and
Munich, to name a few), plus discuss the RSRG's latest, exciting project:
the overlaying of Rohatyn's 1846 cadastral maps onto google maps, allowing
users to zoom in on their pre-War ancestral homes and businesses!
Bilingual in English and French, Marla will be happy to take and respond
to questions and comments >from those attending this BOF meeting.

We hope you can join her at 5:00 p.m. on Sunday, July 15th. Please
continue to check with the conference website for updates and room
changes: http://www.paris2012.eu/events/rohatyn-ukraine-bof

Thank you, Anita. I looked in fact for Markus, Marcus, Marks, Marx. Anyway,
they appear mostly together as variations. I haven't found anything
corresponding in JRI-Poland. I mainly now would like to get information
about the local archives, where I might request information.

Re: Queens or Bronx, NY Death Certificate #general

Hope, have you "done the obvious" of calling the cemetery to ask what
they have on record, or can surmise, or....?

Have you contacted the appropriate departments in the Bronx and Queens
about getting a copy of the death certificate? It costs something like
$20 to do so (including postage) - even if you ordered >from both and got
only one, it wouldn't break the bank!

Do you know about www.findagrave.com? Can you find your great aunt
listed for that cemetery?

Have you called the cemetery? I'm often amazed at the information they
can provide. Sometimes they even have the death certificate number.

The best days to call are Wednesday and Thursday. They're not as busy.

Business Directories for Podgorze #galicia

Pauline Crump <pauline@...>
 

My Great Grandfather Dawid ABRAHAMER is listed in the 1880
Podgorze census living at house no. 1/13 with Innkeeper as his
occupation. On a visit some time ago I noticed the building called
Pod Czarnym Orlem (Under the Black Eagle) on the north side of the
Market Square. I recently found a description of the building on the
Cracow Travel site:

"The oldest part of Podgorze Market Square is the dense line of
houses on its north western side.... The building most worthy of
attention is No. 13, the former 'Pod Czarnym Orlem' Inn..."

It does seem a very large coincidence, but I wonder whether this
could have been where he was the Innkeeper. Does anyone know of
any local Business directories >from this period which might list the
names of Innkeepers? He was listed as coal merchant in 1870, living
at 1/14. I would love to identify where the family was living. I have
looked in the main databases without success.

Announcing the Rohatyn BoF Meeting: IAJGS Paris July 15, 2012 #galicia

Marla Raucher Osborn <osborn@...>
 

Dear researchers,

I am very pleased to announce that there will be a Rohatyn Birds
of a Feather (BOF) meeting on the opening day of the 32nd
Annual IAJGS Conference next summer in Paris, Sunday, 15 July
2012 at 5:00 p.m.

This meeting is open to anyone with family connections to the
Galician town of Rohatyn, or is generally interested in learning
more about the town, its former Jewish community, and Jewish
research sources abroad.

The following is a synopsis.

Today, Rohatyn is located in western Ukraine, less than two
hours' drive south >from the beautiful historic city of Lviv
(formerly, Lemberg and Lwow). In many ways, Rohatyn was
- and is - a typical eastern Galician town: during the inter-War
years its population was 50% Jewish; at the outbreak of WWII, its
population was 1/3 Polish, 1/3 Jewish, and 1/3 Ukrainian. It was
multi-lingual and culturally vibrant, and was commercially linked
by rail to Lwow, Tarnopol, and Chernivtsi. Many Rohatyn Jewish
families sent their sons and daughters to prestigious academic
Universities in Krakow, Vienna, Prague, and Budapest, and
maintained strong business connections as well to these urban
“jewels” in the crown of the Austro-Hungarian Empire.

The Rohatyn BOF meeting will be conducted by Marla Raucher
Osborn, a member of the Board of Directors of Gesher Galicia.
Over 2011, Marla spent five months living and researching in
Lviv, making more than half a dozen trips to Rohatyn. Marla will
discuss her Rohatyn trips and discoveries, as well as the
undertaking of a long-term project to recover the Jewish
headstone fragments still found around the town today and
their return to Rohatyn's former Jewish cemetery. She will also
present slides and other information about the box of Jewish
paper scraps discovered in the 2011 renovation of a building
that housed the Rohatyn Judenrat during the Nazi occupation,
the proposed future plans for translating and exhibiting of
these rare and important artifacts, and her meetings with
various townspeople and officials during 2011. Marla will also
talk about the Rohatyn Shtetl Research Group (“RSRG”), founded
in 2009 by Dr. Alex Feller, today with more than 150 members
worldwide, all of whom have family or historic connections to
the town, like herself. Time permitting, Marla will also share
examples of the many and varied types of records she has
obtained across western and central Europe for her Rohatyn
family (>from sources in Lviv, Vienna, Krakow, Warsaw, and
Munich, to name a few), plus discuss the RSRG's latest, exciting
project: the overlaying of Rohatyn's 1846 cadastral maps onto
google maps, allowing users to zoom in on their pre-War
ancestral homes and businesses!

Bilingual in English and French, Marla will be happy to take and
respond to questions and comments >from those attending this
BOF meeting. We hope you can join her at 5:00 p.m. on Sunday,
July 15th.

Hello GerSig,
I just joined the group. I have been doing genealogy research for
a few months. I consider myself to be beginner in doing German Jewish
Genealogy research. I live in former German town Naugard/Pommern-
now Nowogard/Poland . My native language is Polish and I also know
English and some basic German.
