The Israel Genealogical Society - Tel-Aviv Dan Branch- event: Bridge to Galicia #ukraine

Eli Brauner
 

The Israel Genealogical Society - Tel-Aviv Dan Branch The Shaar Zion Municipal Library - Beit
Ariela
May Meeting---------Bridge to Galicia

Guest speaker: Mrs. Marla Raucher Osborn Historical Cadastral Maps as a Genealogical Source Dr.

Eli Brauner "Milestones in Recognition of Daily Life of Galician Families - in Lwow Aspect"

About the Lectures:

Marla Osborn Raucher: Although many types of maps can be used by genealogists, cadastral maps play a
particularly important role since the parcels showed on the maps include numbers. These numbers can
be linked to owner records in archives and to tax records, which largely contain these numbers. The
maps occasionally also include the names of the property owners. Subsequently, we can learn what
properties belonged to the families being researched. This data can shed light on the economic
circumstances of the family in the community as well as on the physical changes in the city. Other
important uses include identification of Jewish buildings for Jewish heritage preservation and an
understanding of the reasons for the historical planning decisions. To demonstrate, the lecture will
focus on a map of Rohatyn, dating back to 1846 but the information is relevant to all cities in
Galicia.

The lecture is in English and will be accompanied by slides translated into Hebrew.

Dr. Eli Brauner: Research of many years of the Schrenzel Family >from Lwow concluded not only with
the creation of a family tree but with a systematic identification of sources for research and
development of research methods. The research resulted in the transformation of a standard family
tree into a blossoming tree that reflects the family's daily life, property ownership, and
relationship with authorities, sources of income, military service and tax payments. Unusually
evidence >from the last days of the ancient family was also found. This information, how to
invigorate the family tree, is made available to the community of Lwow descendents and the
genealogical community as a memory to Lwow residents who were slaughtered by the Nazis.

The lecture is given in Hebrew and will be accompanied by slides translated into English.

The meeting, which is open to the general public, will have a question and answer session.

Everyone is invited.

Discussion: Reclaiming Our Lost Families, San Francisco, Tuesday May 13th #general

jeremy frankel
 

Anyone who lives in or intends to be in San Francisco next Tuesday
evening might wish to attend a fascinating lecture by two people who
discovered their Jewish identity.

Two Bay Area writers, Mani Feniger and Jim Van Buskirk, unexpectedly
discovered their hidden family past and sent them off in unforeseen
directions. When Mani Feniger discovered a lost 1932 photograph of
her mother, it led to revelations about her Jewish ancestors' lives
in pre-Nazi Leipzig and clarified the choices her mother made to
survive as her privileged world shattered. After Jim Van Buskirk's
mother showed him a suitcase of his Parisian opera singer
grandmother's memorabilia, he understood the role that his family's
secret Jewish heritage might have played in their saga of kidnapping,
death, and divorce.

The meeting, a program of Jewish LearningWorks, will be held at the
Jewish Community Library, 1835 Ellis Street, San Francisco. The
program runs 7:00 - 8:30 pm). See www.jewishlearningworks.org/library
for more information. It is co-sponsored by the San Francisco Bay
Area Jewish Genealogical Society and made possible in part by Judy
Baston, long-time Society member.

Uscie Biscupie #galicia

Ervin Spinner <espinner@...>
 

1) I am interested in the demographics of the shtetls in Eastern
Galicia, in particular, Uscie Biskupie and some of the adjacent border
towns. I purchased >from Gesher Galicia the list of the property
owners of Uscie Biskupie in circa 1820. At that time there was only a
small handful of families, the Scarfsteins, the Rosenblatt and a few
others. Towards the end of the Century these few families had each
grown into a clan of several families but many more families are now
in the database of JRI. The Biscupier society section of the Mount
Zion Cemetery in New York has some 85 family names. Since not
every family back home had a person or group who migrated to the
USA, it is reasonable to assume that this shtetl had grown
significantly in the 19th century.

a) Where did the Jews come >from who settled there?
b) Why did they come?
c) What were the primary business enterprises there?

2) When I look at the JRI death records, especially for the few people
who lived beyond the age of seventy, I notice that some of them
simply do not make sense. Given the likely date of the birth of their
children for whom we have records, the age of the parent at death
seems at times significantly higher than my reasonable assumption.
How accurate is the data based on other people's experience?

Book: "World of our Fathers" #general

Brentsi
 

Dear all,

I recommend to everyone interested in learning about the reasoning,the
journeys and border crossings.... entering the US through Ellis Island,
read the book "World Of Our Fathers" (Irving Howe).This book has to be
one of the most vivid, concentrated collections describing how our
ancestors sought their future in America of the 18-1900's.

New Additions to IGRA databases #general

Garri Regev
 

As we moved >from the Day of Remembrance for our fallen to Independence
Day celebrations. IGRA joined in celebrating Israel's 66th birthday -
and has released eight additional databases!

Ruslan Passenger List - 19 Dec 1919

The Ruslan is considered by some as the first ship to bring immigrants
to Eretz Israelafter World War One, and the beginning of the Third
Aliyah, but it is one of many ships that brought immigrants in 1919.
This list of the heads of the families also contains the number of
members of the family that were on the ship. There were approximately
670 passengers on board. Not all of the passengers are listed as
immigrants in the file found in the Israel State Archives. Some of the
passengers said they were returning to Eretz Israel. This document is
from the Central Zionist Archives.
Exiled to Palestine: The Emigration of Zionist Convicts >from theSoviet
Union, 1924-1934

This database was donated by Prof. Boris Morozov and Prof. Ziva
Galili. The database was built while compiling the data for their book
Exiled to Palestine: The Emigration of Zionist Convicts >from the
Soviet Union, 1924-1934. It contains 1759 names of people of the many
thousands of active Zionists in the Soviet Union who were allowed to
emigrate during the period of the Fourth Aliyah to Eretz Israel. This
database is built >from the compilation of many sources and therefore
the information available varies >from person to person. For many of
the people listed in the database there is information about the date
of their arrest, their sentencing and their immigration. The original
file was prepared in software no longer available. There was some loss
when it was transposed to Excel and some of the longer sentences were
lost.

Staff List of the Government of Palestine 1935

This document was found in the Israel State Archives. It contains the
names of 789 people who served in the Palestine Mandate government at
that time, including information on their appointment, rank, date of
appointment to the present rank and where they were stationed.

Jerusalem Pinkas Bogrim (Adult Lists =3D Voters List) for Knesset Israel
1942 - 41,399 adults including four adults that lived at the Dead Sea
and the adults at Kibbutz Ramat Rachel, >from the Central Zionist
Archives.

Yagur Pinkas Bogrim (Adult Lists =3D Voters List) for Knesset Israel
1942 - 746 adults are listed. The document is >from the Central Zionist
Archives.

Who=E2=80=99s Who in Palestine 1944

The database is composed of two lists prepared by the British Mandate
government and marked SECRET and closed until 1996! The documents
included the names of 153 Jewish politicians and personalities and 69
Arab politicians and personalities. Inside the booklets there are
summaries on each person.

Voters List for local Election Herziliya 1945

This database has 1,925 voters for the election of the Local Council
in Herziliya. The list was found in the Israel State Archives.

Mordechai Yosef Wokstock and family #general

אברהם <avraham997@...>
 

Dear friends

I would appreciate some help with the following:

The marriage record of my grandfather Mordechai Yosef WAKSZTOK is >from
1937,registered in Kalisz. I know that by that time he already had at
least 7 children. What could be the reason that he waited so long to
register his marriage?

Another mystery: According to his marriage license he was born in 1896,
in warta (blazski-kalsz). I didn't find any records to that effect.
His father was Yaakov (Bunim) WAKSZTOK. Yaakov Bunim's first wife was
Chana and after she died he married Mordechai Yosef's mother, whose name
is registered in the marriage license as Sara Rivka Parzenczewska
(Pewienczewska Panenczewska). In all my searches I couldn't find any
record of Yakov (Bunim's) second marriage, of Mordechai Yosef's birth or
of Sara Rivka's birth.

I would appreciate any help.
Thank you, Avraham Lapa

May Meeting---------Bridge to Galicia

Guest speaker: Mrs. Marla Raucher Osborn
"Historical Cadastral Maps as a Genealogical Source"

Dr. Eli Brauner
"Milestones in Recognition of Daily Life
of Galician Families - in Lwow Aspect"

About the Lectures:

Marla Osborn Raucher: Although many types of maps can be used by
genealogists, cadastral maps play a particularly important role since
the parcels showed on the maps include numbers. These numbers can
be linked to owner records in archives and to tax records, which
largely contain these numbers. The maps occasionally also include the
names of the property owners. Subsequently, we can learn what
properties belonged to the families being researched. This data can
shed light on the economic circumstances of the family in the
community as well as on the physical changes in the city. Other
important uses include identification of Jewish buildings for Jewish
heritage preservation and an understanding of the reasons for the
historical planning decisions. To demonstrate, the lecture will focus
on a map of Rohatyn, dating back to 1846 but the information is
relevant to all cities in Galicia.

The lecture is in English and will be accompanied by slides translated
into Hebrew.

Dr. Eli Brauner: Research of many years of the Schrenzel Family >from
Lwow concluded not only with the creation of a family tree but with a
systematic identification of sources for research and development of
research methods. The research resulted in the transformation of a
standard family tree into a blossoming tree that reflects the family's
daily life, property ownership, and relationship with authorities,
sources of income, military service and tax payments. Unusually
evidence >from the last days of the ancient family was also found. This
information, how to invigorate the family tree, is made available to the
community of Lwow descendents and the genealogical community as
a memory to Lwow residents who were slaughtered by the Nazis.

The lecture is given in Hebrew and will be accompanied by slides

a memory to Lwow residents who were slaughtered by the Nazis.

ViewMate Translation Request - Polish #galicia

Alan Seid
 

Hi,
I would really appreciate a word for word Polish to English translation.
The image is part of a birth record for Jacob Haas born 8 Dec 1902 in
Nadworna.

I've posted the image on ViewMate at the following address
http://www.jewishgen.org/viewmate/viewmateview.asp?key=VM33547
Please respond via the form provided in the ViewMate application

I am looking for a translation of the Polish text across columns 10, 11
and 12. I see the year 1921 and Leib Hass (father of Jacob). I do not
understand why the year 1921 is written on a 1902 birth record.

Thank you

Alan

The Ruslan is considered by some as the first ship to bring immigrants
to Eretz Israelafter World War One, and the beginning of the Third
Aliyah, but it is one of many ships that brought immigrants in 1919.
This list of the heads of the families also contains the number of
members of the family that were on the ship. There were approximately
670 passengers on board. Not all of the passengers are listed as
immigrants in the file found in the Israel State Archives. Some of the
passengers said they were returning to Eretz Israel. This document is
from the Central Zionist Archives.
