Help reading handwritten birth record #galicia

Sabrina Bonus <sabrina.bonus@...>
 

Dear all,

Can someone please help to decipher this handwritten page of birth
records from, I hope, Horodenka? A link to the item on FamilySearch is
below. I am interested in what is written sideways on the left, and how
it relates to anything else on the page, if at all. I think the people on the
left are mine.

https://www.familysearch.org/ark:/61903/3:1:3Q9M-CSM9-ZXDC?i=800&cat=1689043
[MOD: Or this shorter URL: https://tinyurl.com/Horodenka-FS .]

This is >from fond 701-1/31 Birth, marriage, and death extracts
1922-1939, >from Central State Historical Archives of Ukraine in Lvov.
Film # 007761769 image 801 of 966. I can send screenshots if
necessary.

WEISSMAN family from Kolomea (Austria) now Ukraine #general

Rod MacNeil
 

Everyone: My great-grandmother, Marjem Chaje WEISSMAN, was born in Kolomea,
Austria in 1878. She had a large family with my great-grandfather, Osias
WEISSMAN; and lived in the nearby village of Czortowiec (now Chortovets,
Ukraine). Three of their young children, including my grandfather, came to
the United States prior to WWI. The remainder of this family did not immigrate
and were killed in the Holocaust.

Marjem Chaje's WEISSMAN siblings, Moses (Morris), Samuel, Rose and Zachary
David, and her mother (Pessie KERKER) also immigrated to New York in the first
decade of the 20th century. All are buried in the Kolomear-2 Society in Mount
Zion Cemetery Queens.

I would like to make contact with any WEISSMAN decendents of my
great-grandmother's siblings. Please respond to my privately off the list.

Thanks,

Where was Okenin, Austria? #general

Has anyone ever heard of Okenin, Austria?
My late great aunt's Petition for Naturalization states that she was
born in Okenin, Austria on Sept. 1, 1899.
I cannot find that location anywhere in Eastern Europe.

Any information would be appreciated, as well as how to search for
vital records >from there.

Thank you!

Re: 20 Romanian cities -Survivors #romania

rhodamoore@...
 

Please note that in the book published in Jewish Gen about Bacau, chapter
entitled "Demographic Evolution if Jewish Population in Bacau,"
it is stated that in 1742 the ruler of Moldavia ordered the sheriff of
Bacau to assist the Jews Avram and Boroh in establishing themselves in Bacau.
So the list herein that says that Alba Iulia was the only town where Jews were
permitted to live prior to 1857 is incorrect.

INTRO - researching my mostly German family #germany

Gerald Stern <gerald@...>
 

Hello GerSig,

I just joined the group following my attendance at the IAJGS conference
in Cleveland, OH. As requested, here is my introductory email.

I have been doing genealogy research foraround 15 years.  Having taken
most of my ancestral lines back as far as archival records go, I
consider myself to be reasonably advanced in doing German Jewish
Genealogy research. However, there are always little gaps or bits of
family history I would like to add.

I live in England between Newcastle upon Tyne and greater London. My
father came to England in March 1939 thanks to the Kindertransport - his
immediate family were all murdered in KZ. My mother was born in
Amsterdam, grew up in Geneva, but her family were all German. My wife's
family are also all German refugees escaping before WW2.

My native language is English and I also know some French and a
smattering of German.

I am fairly adept with a computer and particularly in graphics.  I am
competent at using the internet and host a website with my genealogical
database: www.sternmail.co.uk/sld

I have traced almost every ancestral line in my family back to the 1700s
and a few earlier.

I have a current goal to try and link my fifth great grandfather, Baruch
WEIL (born about 1744 place unknown - died 21/31 Jan 1846 in Altdorf
near Ettenheim (buried in the Schmieheim Cemetery) where he was the
Juedische Vohrsteher and Mohel - his father was Schmuel WEIL) to one of
the famous Weil/WEILL family descendant trees. Any help would be amazing!

My JGFF Researcher ID number is 326936.

I have entered several family names and ancestral towns in
the JGFF (JewishGen Family Finder). Some are shown below.
These are some of the very many families and towns I am researching:

[Moderator Note: The complete list is too long to include here.
It is very extensive. Write to Mr. Stern <gerald@sternmail.co.uk>
or check his website to see the entire list.]

ALTSCHUL (of Ingenheim), BARUCH (of Kroiterchine, Fracquemont/ Valkenburg),
BLUMENTHAL (of Weyer), CAHN (of Meudt, Langendernbach, Herborn, Montabaur
and other towns in the Westerwald area), COHN(of Deutsch Eylau),
FISCHER (of Bischofswerder, Deutsch Eylau), GOLDSCHMIDT (of Runkel),
GOMBERICH (of Weyer), GRUENBAUM (of Seelbach, Hahnstaetten)
HAAS (of Ingenheim), HECHT(of Holzhausen auf der Haide, Rennerod), FULD
(of Langendernbach, Brandoberndorf), HEILBERG (of Quirnbach), and
(of Meudt, Langendernbach, Herborn, Montabaur and other towns in the
