"German Russia" #courland #latvia

Sam Schulman
 

Dear Courlanders,

Many thanks to all who helped answer my question about my
great-grandparents' statements to US census enumerators that their
birthplaces in the 1860s - Riga and Kublichi, Belarus - were in
"German Russia," or some variant thereof. I see that their insistence
on the "German-ness" of their origins was not an expression of social
rivalry with their Bavarian "old American" mischpoche, as their
grandaughter, my mother, suspected as a little girl in the 30s, but
had some substance.

Best regards,
Sam Schulman

Leuchs Directory #austria-czech

Sharon Gill
 

I've recently searched the Genealogy Indexer and believe I have found an entry for my Great
Grandfather. Sadly, the link doesn't work and although I have searched to try and find another
source for the directory, I haven't been able to find it. I'm looking for 1897-1901 Moravia and
Austrian Silesia Business Directory (Leuchs vol. 19a)
Any ideas please? Many thanks

Vienna Ringstrasse property listings #austria-czech

Mark Tritsch
 

Readers interested in the Ringstrasse exhibition and especially Georg
Gaugusch's excellent in depth research can order the exhibition volume
online:
http://www.amalthea.at/index.php?id=10&showBookNr=8533
It contains Gaugusch's complete article with tables of property listings and
pictures.

Subject: Ringstrasse property ownership exhibit
From: corystr@gmail.com

During a trip to Vienna last month, I had the opportunity to visit the
Jewish Museum
which was featuring a special exhibit about the Ringstrasse. One focus of
this
exhibit was the extensive Jewish property ownership in and around the Ring.
The
exhibit included a book or ledger compiled by Georg Gaugusch listing
property owners
and purchase transactions. I was delighted to find a couple of listings for
property
owned by my great-great-grandfather Leon WECHSLER, and I was then able to
visit
both buildings - very exciting!

Given the museum setting, I was only able to spend a few minutes flipping
through
the Georg Gaugusch book of property listings. Does anyone know more about
this
book? Is it available anywhere online or in print? I would love to be able
to spend
more time with it. I photographed a couple of pages but didn't think to
photograph
the title page so I can't identify the book in more detail. Thanks for any
suggestions!

Clarification re Ringstrasse property ownership exhibit #austria-czech

Cory Streisinger
 

. ..The exhibit included a book or ledger compiled by Georg Gaugusch listing
property owners and purchase transactions. ...

Just to clarify my earlier post - the book in the Vienna Ringstrasse exhibit
was not Georg Gaugusch's book"Wer Einmal War." Although Georg Gaugusch was
the author, this was a much smaller book, more like a ledger, listing property transactions
and property ownership along the Ringstrasse. It was soft-cover and may not have been
formally published. Any suggestions would be appreciated!

Tarnobrzeg new source school records #galicia

Gayle Schlissel Riley
 

I have a new contact in Tarnobrzeg. A young man who sent school records
for 1891. Plus a pic of the old school house for the grade school. He does
not speak English.

I will share the data when I can pull it all together.

There is also a Facebook page. With many pics.
