I understand that the Jewish cemeteries in L'viv were destroyed in the
WWII period.

Has anyone discovered L'viv Jewish burial records for the years prior
to 1940?

1834 Revision List translated for Lida, Radun and Eisiskes -- more towns to come #lithuania

Jrbaston
 

Dear Fellow Lida District Researchers:

I am really excited to let you know that the LitvakSIG Lida District
Research Group has started to translate the 1834 Revision List for
Lida District towns. I've just uploaded to the Lida District
Shutterfly site the translations of the 1834 Revision List for
Eisiskes, Lida town and Radun. These are the first three towns
to be translated and translation has started on Voronovo, Zhaludok
and Vasilishki.

For those of you who have been able to connect to family in the Lida
District 1858 Revision List, and the Additional Revision Lists
1858-1908, there is a good chance that you will be able to connect
to an earlier generation or two in the 1834 Revision list.

The Lida District 1834 Revision List is a big list - just like the
1858 Revision Lists and the Additional Revision List, which we
translated some years back. When we started translating the 1834
list, there was close to $4,000 in the LitvakSIG Lida District
Research Group account. I was really excited about how much
we could get translated with $4,000. But after translating
Voronovo, Zhaludok, and Vasilishki, we will definitely have
to raise additional funds (I estimate about $1,500) to finish
the 1834 Revision List for Belitsy, Novy Dwor, Orlya, Ostrynia,
Rozhanka and Shchuchin.

We appreciate any amount you can contribute to help us get the
entire 1834 Revision List for the Lida District translated. A
contribution of $100 or more will qualify you to become part of the
LitvakSIG Lida District Research Group, and provide access to the
Group's Shutterfly Site at https://lidadistrict.shutterfly.com/

A contribution of at least $100 will provide access to all Lida
District translations -- past, present and future -- through
December 31, 2018.

This site provides qualified contributors to the LitvakSIG Lida
District Research Group access to translated records for Lida
District towns immediately after they are translated. These
records will become publicly searchable on the LitvakSIG All
Lithuania Database, the JewishGen Belarus Database and the
JewishGen Lithuania Database 18 months after they are
translated.

(Even after they are publicly searchable, in many ways, being
able to browse and sort the records in an Excel spreadsheet
-- available on and downloadable >from the Shutterfly site --
provides many additional options for research).

To contribute to our efforts to complete the translation
of the entire Lida District 1834 Revision List, go to
www.litvaksig.org/contribute Scroll down to Research
Groups and choose Lida District.

I've posted an 1834 Surname List for the Eisiskes, Lida
and Radun on the homepage at https://lidadistrict.shutterfly.com/

Please write to me at JRBaston@... if you have any questions.

WEISZ family marriage Tapolcsany 1887 #general

bobandev <bobandev@...>
 

I was very excited to come across the jewishgen.org/yizkor/Tapolcsany article.

It matches with the translation of the marriage >from 1887 , which I inherited >from
my father, Dr. Marcell Weisz. He was born in Vienna in 1902, studied medicine at
the university there, and emigrated to England in 1939. He was interned during
the early part of the war on the Isle of Man, and then practised medicine until
his death in London in 1969. I have retired with my wife to the lovely Greek island
of Crete

Amongst the many documents I inherited, is a typed German page as follows, which I
have translated into English. It describes that in Bande IV of the marriage records
of the Israelitischen Kultusgemeinde of Gross Tapolcsany, on page 3 of 7 >from the
month of February 1887, the following is recorded:-

Groom - Samuel Weisz of Neutra, aged 28 - parents Hermann Weisz and Katerina
Schlesinger of Neutra. He is neither widowed or divorced
Bride - Julie Hunwald - aged 22 - parents Salomon Hunwald and Toni Gritz of Gross
Tapolcsany . She is neither married or divoced

Posting of marriage bans - 3 times in Gross Tapolcsany Witnesses - Salomon Hunwald
and Josef Weisz

Officiating Rabbi - Philipp Schlesinger 8th February 1887

The original translation was made in Vienna on 28 March 1923, by Dr. Eduard Thaler,
certified translator >from Hungarian to German.

This translation was then verified by Notary Heinrich Obendorfer in Vienna on 11th
April1939 and stamped with a Nazi Swastika and Eagle.

Can this be the same Rabbi nahum Schlesinger , mentioned in the yizkor article, who
preceeded Chief Rabbi AbrahamEliezer Weiss?

I would be so honoured if you can give me any more information on these relatives
of mine and their lives in Neutra and Tapolcsany.

Yours in appreciation,

Dear Genners,

Many thanks for the truly outstanding research to locate the family. No more effort
is necessary. The family descendants have been located - in the mid-west. Turns
out that rabbi Jerome Kaufman was not a rabbi, but a physician, and is now retired.

I appreciate the detective work, and have forwarded all your info to my friend.

Many thanks,

Yankel STARBERG #general

Sheila Coyne <secoyne@...>
 

When looking for a manifest for a great-grand-aunt's husband (Slurzberg) on one
side of the family, I suddenly happened upon the manifest for someone apparently
related on the other side of the family. Yankel STARBERG (written on the manifest
as "Stargberg" was a 23 year old joiner on the Amerika in February 1908 going to
join his "brother-in-law" Gedalia FRANKEL (Franklin) in Roxbury, Mass. It just so
happens that Gedalia FRANKEL was married to Esther KERZNER, who was the sister of
two other KERZNER siblings married to my paternal grandmother's sister and brother
(and they were all first cousins as well). I have records (some >from Ancestry,
others personal) showing that Esther and her siblings were the children of Boruch
(Benjamin) KERZNER and Zecel GRIBELSKY in Khmil'nyk. However, Esther's ship
manifest of 1907 showed she was leaving mother Zesie STARBERG in Podolya (Ukraine).
Yankel STARBERG's manifest of 1908 says he's leaving his father Mikel STARBERG in
Khmil'nyk, Podolya (Ukraine).

I have no other document anywhere for my grandmother or her siblings or their
spouses with the name STARBERG. I have no other records of further KERZNER
siblings (other than the four I already had, which did not include Yankel). I can
find no other records for Yankel STARBERG in Ancestry. I found no relevant
STARBERG records at Jewishgen's Ukraine database.

Any suggestions?

Besides my bank, I've also used Western Union and RIA Money Transfer. Both have
worked but both have caveats. RIA only works with certain banks, so if the bank you
need isn't there, you're out of luck (unless you're transferring money for a person
to pick up, then you're fine). Western Union doesn't have bank to bank transfer in
some countries (only person pick up). That said, both times I've used their
services, it all worked very well and quickly.
