Gesher Galicia SIG
 

Gesher Galicia has completed further records in the 2017 Vital Records
project. All are >from the Ukrainian state archives (in Lviv and
Ivano-Frankivsk). Their indexes have been added to the All Galicia
Database <https://search.geshergalicia.org>, and are:

- Rozdol (Rozdil) Jewish births 1826-1868 (2,289 records)
- Rudki (Rudky) Jewish deaths 1850-1866 (728 records)
- Stanislawow (Ivano-Frankivsk) Jewish births 1931-1932 (958 records)

The indexing of all the Rozdol and Rudki Jewish vital records held in
Ukrainian state archives is now complete.

We plan to have the remaining items in the Vital Records 2017 project
available by the end of the year:
- Stanislawow births 1926-1930; Tarnopol marriages 1934-1939,
before starting on the 2018 vital records project we announced recently.

Also indexed and on the All Galicia Database, and with thanks to Russ
Maurer for his work on it, we have:

1803-1855 (276 records).

Interesting Ancestral Discoveries #ukraine

David Goldman
 

Greetings, Jewishgenners.

I was finally able to actually obtain documents going back to the 1870s and
even to 1852 >from Zhitomir. One of the unusual findings was that my
great-great-grandfather (the rabbi of Mayaki near Odessa) had been married
in Zhitomir a first time at the age of 21 to a divorcee who was 26 in 1873.
I had previously obtained a record for his marriage to my
great-great-grandmother in Odessa in 1881. Of course no one in my family
ever heard about this, and it appeared extremely strange that a young 21
year old would marry an older divorced woman (who must have died or divorced
him by 1880).

Am I correct (ahem) in assuming that the only probably likelihood is as a
young religious Jew in 1873 he fell in love with a married woman who then
divorced her husband in order to marry him?

I realize this happens nowadays and could always happen, but it still seems
unusual, especially since the obvious first choice would have been a MATCH
made with a young virgin and not a divorcee who is about 5 years older than
him. They then had a child in Zhitomir in 1876, whose fate is unknown.

In addition, another record shows that his own father died of an "abscess"
or "ulcer" at age 55 in 1890 (meaning his father was 17 when he was born in
1852). What might we call this illness today in 2017?

Thanks,
David Goldman

Dear JewishGen Family,

Today is #GivingTuesday - a global day of giving back - and it falls less
than a month before Chanukah when we kindle lights of hope.

In this spirit of hope for the future, please give back by supporting
JewishGen, whose mission is to "preserve our history for future
generations."

Because of JewishGen, and its more than 1,000 volunteers, people can learn
about their Jewish family history - no matter their location! With the
simple click of a button (and good internet access!), JewishGen allows
people to access information that previously would have required a
tremendous expense, and countless hours travelling the world.

In the words of one donor: "Sadly, the family members who might have
answered my many questions have all passed on. Therefore, it is only
through sites such as yours that I may find answers."

Our goal is to raise $18,000 *today* to help subsidize our services. A gift
of any amount will be greatly appreciated, and collectively, make a
tremendous difference. As in past years, gifts of $100 or more will
qualify for our Value Added Services.

FREE GIFT! All JewishGen users who contribute to our Giving Tuesday
campaign - no matter the amount - will receive an exclusive link to view
the upcoming film "My Dear Children" (which is scheduled to premiere
internationally in theaters and on PBS in 2018). This is the first-ever
documentary about the anti-Jewish massacres that swept what is today
Ukraine, Moldova, and Belarus immediately following WWI. These massacres
are an often overlooked piece of Jewish history, and we hope you find
this film informative and meaningful. (A trailer can be viewed here:
https://tinyurl.com/JGMDC).

If you are in a position to do so, please help us continue our important
work. Donations to support JewishGen can be made in the following ways:
(1) Online via our SECURE website: Please visit:

(2) Via PayPAL: Please visit: https://preview.tinyurl.com/JG17PPGF
(3) Telephone: Please call: +1.646.494.5972 - We are standing by to
process donations over the phone!
(4) Checks: Please make payable, and send to: JewishGen, 36 Battery

Please give back by supporting JewishGen - an organization that does so
much to preserve *your* history for the future.
Thank you and (an early) happy Chanukah!
