The outstanding efforts of JRI-Poland town leaders and research area coordinators who coordinate
the activity and coordinate fundraising to pay the costs of hiring professionals, is illustrated by the
following response to the inquiry for Rosalie Baker.
The records to which Rosalie asks about fall under the mission of Jewish Records Indexing - Poland's
to index/extract all the records of Poland.   For an overview of JRI-Poland current activity, please read:

Rosalie also asks about her mother Feige Malka's birth record in Tarnogrod. While the Tarnogrod
records have also been indexed by JRI-Poland and appear online, these records have now also
been fully extracted.  However, the full extractions do NOT appear online because fundraising
is ongoing to enable us to offset the costs of this work.  (The 1868 to 1915 records of Congress
Poland are in Russian and the data entry of extractions of these records is carried out by paid
professionals who are experts in Polish spellings of names and spellings and locations of towns.)
When funding is complete, these full extractions will appear online.
To illustrate what is contained in "full extracts," the following are the births of Feige Malka's brother
and sister and the death of her mother as they appear in our internal files. 
Our data also includes the death of Feiga Malka's father Feiwel but is not included here.   
Feige Malka's birth was not registered.  However, our later data includesthe marriage of Feige Malka
to Josef Szoel GLIKLICH and the marriage of Feige Malka's sister Hena Ryfka.

Seeking death records for my paternal grandparents.  My grandfather, Fajwel Konigsberg was born in 1873 in Kresge, Poland.  He died very young in Tarnogrod, Poland.  My grandmother, Majta Konigsberg (nee Bergerman was born in 1870, probably Bilgoraj, Poland.  She, too, died very young.  They probably died between 1904 and 1918 and I'm guessing closer to 1910.

Also seeking my mother's birth record.  Her name was Feige Malke Konigsberg Glicklich.  She was born in Tarnogrod between 1899 and 1903 and emigrated to New York in 1920.  
I've found records for some of my mother's siblings on JRI-Poland but haven't found her birth record.

What office in Poland would I contact via email that might have the above records?  

Also, which Jewish Gen group do the towns Tarnogrod and Bilgoraj belong to?  Thanks so much.

Re: How do I use the "Declaration of Intention" to find the actual naturalization papers? #records


I thank the researchers who have so far replied. I have been able to trace Sam as far as the US Census 1940. Also, all records from his arrival in 1906, up to and including 1940 Census, have been uncovered. I am hoping that the actual naturalization papers will give me another birthdate. The records so far found have given various dates , ranging from 1900 to 1904 . I have his father, Pesach, death certificate; Sam's marriage to my grandmother, Ceil Hann; his siblings marriage and death records; naturalizations for his brothers; even notes on his divorce from Grandma in 1937! The family did not think he ever remarried and that my mother, Lila, was his only child. We believe that the NY Census 1925 was in error about another child, Leonard. No trace or mention of him at any other time. A great aunt spoke with Sam at her shop in Greenwich Village  in the late 1960s or early 1970s ( her recollection of the date may have been incorrect) and he was a bus driver then. Of course, all of that generation are now deceased, and they were always very circumspect about that first marriage of my Grandmother.  
   Another mystery of my Katz family is the death date and place of Sam's mother, Freida.From the marriage records of her children, her maiden name is given as "Greenberg,or Gruenberg", or " Leibowitz". I trace her as far as the NY State Census 1925, where she resides with her daughter, Betty and son-in-law Alex Leibowitz. 
   My research is fairly complete on the Katz family, except for Sam and Fanny(Freida) deaths and resting places. It has been frustrating to be able to go so far on the siblings, yet be unable to find my grandfather. 
I had hoped to find Sam before my mother died, but, she passed two years ago. All help is appreciated !

Why is the country "Poland" used after the three partitions of Poland and its disappearance from the map #poland

Marilyn Levinson

Dear researchers
This use of the word Poland after the third partition is confusing to me.  To give but one example, I read an article today that said Jews in Poland were required to take surnames in 1821.  There was no Poland in 1821.  I have separate dates for the Austria-Hungarian Empire, Prussia, and Russia, so I believe they are not speaking of former Polish lands.  Can anyone explain why the country Poland is named after its existence ended?  Does this have anything to do with Congress Poland?  Thank you for your help.

Re: Coordination between and JewishGen #general

Sarah L Meyer

It is my understanding that those databases that originated on Jewishgen and are stored on Ancestry servers, would be free on Ancestry.  Other databases such as JGFF were never available on Ancestry and are only available on Jewishgen.  To the best of my knowledge there was never any "priority" for Jewishgen donors.  Jewish is included as a type of collection.

Have you looked at ? There is a private family tree for Leo Kaidan with many attached records. Perhaps if you contact the user who created it, you will get the information you are searching for.

Descendants of Yosef Meir Weiss the "Imrei Yosef" #romania


Hi All
My paternal great grandmother Rivka Basch (maiden name)  was born in Sapanta, Romania.  After marrying my great grandmother, she lived in Sighet, Romania.  According to my father, who was born in the 1920's and lived in a small town that was across the Tisa River in Czechoslovakia and not far from Sighet Romania, a rabbi who was a descendant of the "Sapinka Rebbe" and a relative of my grandmother's family, visited my father's family multiple times during my father's youth.  I know that Yosef Meir Weiss, the founder of the Sapinka Hasidic rabbinic  dynasty, married Perel Basch who was the daughter of Ezra Yaakov Basch of Sapanta, Romania.  I haven't, to date been able to establish a connection between my paternal line and that "Sapinka Rebbe".  I am looking for additional information from known descendants of Yosef Meir Weiss and Perel Basch, either genealogical or via DNA testing, that would determine if my paternal line had any genealogical connection to Ezra Yaakov Basch.  My father's DNA info is available on multiple genealogical sites so DNA matching is a possibility.
I appreciate any information that you may be able to offer!

Herrnstadt family can anyone identify those people in this photos #germany #israel #photographs


These are pictures of the Herrnstadt family. The family of Rudy Rolf Grab's mother who fell while servicing the Jewish Brigade (ww 2) and is buried in the British Military Cemetery in Ramla. I'm researching his life story and I'm missing a picture of him. I'd be happy if someone recognizes those in the (small) photo (especially the child). The soldier's mother was named Else and is believed to be in the picture with her brothers and sisters. The picture was taken from a postcard sent to the family grandfather (probably in 1927) the second big picture is of the whole family (date unknown). I'd be happy for any I.D. Please distribute the images and we may be able to identify those filmed in them

I suggest you contact The Together Plan, a charity based in London and Belarus, which helps Jews in Belarus become self sufficient.  One of their projects is genealogical research.  They are skilled in many languages and have the advantage of knowing all about the local bureaucracies !!

Re: Naturalization record index cards #records


Hello all

I have been trying to find records for my great grandparents who came to England from Brest 1905-1907 roughly. I've looked at Ancestry's ship records etc, nothing to be seen here .... Has anyone got any pointers? 

Thank you in advance

Re: Coordination between and JewishGen #general



I believe Family Search hold all the records that Ancestry have or had and have made them into documents that make more sense at times too I believe. Have you tried Family Search ? It's completely free and easy to get around. I think I have located my Great grandmothers birth certificate for 1877 in Slovakian church records there.

Kamienczyk during WWI? #poland #general

David W. Perle

My grandfather--who died before I was born--was a boy in Kamienczyk, Poland, during WWI.  A story passed down involves how he nearly died when a foxhole that he was in during WWI fighting caved in.

I'm not looking for a lot, but I'm trying to find other references/accounts of anything specific that occurred there during WWI.  I've Googled.  Another other leads/insight?

Re: Niveravitzk, Russia - Can anyone help with identifying this place correctly? #russia

Ina Getzoff

I wonder if "Niveravitzk, Russia, is possibly Neshvitz, which was in Belarus in the 1890's and early 1900's. Belarus, now, of course, is an independent country but was part of Russia at one point, part of Poland at another point and finally became independent. Unfortunately, their records are still very hard to get.

Re: How do I use the "Declaration of Intention" to find the actual naturalization papers? #records

Moishe Miller


You indicate Sam is your brick wall and you want to find his death record and burial. I presume this is to go back in time. I too could not find Sam after the 1930 census. 

It would seem that this is Sam's 9 Jun 1924 marriage to Ceil Hahn: 
It indicates his parents were Pesach Katz and Freida Greenberg.
Why do I think this might be his record and his parents?
The 1922 declaration of intent you supplied indicates he arrived via the Finland and that he was born in Bucharest. It does mention a "blank" day in August 1906 for his arrival. The attached is the 1 Aug 1906 ship manifest, and on line 18 there is a Samuel Katz.
Also, paging forward  in the Ancestry version of the declaration of intent book does show the attached 1925 court notice, giving his address as 366 South 1st Street, not the 66 Rivington  address. This matches the 1 Jun 1925 census for a Sam and Ceil Katz, off by one house number, at 364 South 1st Street, per attached, bottom left, rows 47-50, showing Sam from Romania, Ceil, and twins. Strangely, there is only a 7 May 1925 Manhattan birth record for Lila, but not Leonard, as per attached. Confusingly, perhaps the Lila listed in the attached, is NOT the Lila born to Brooklyn parents Sam and Ceil, but rather the Manhattan parents of Nathan and Ida Katz ( 

Based on the detail of Sam's parents, this is the 1915 census record, which in Ancestry can be found here:

The 1914 marriage of Sam's brother Abraham (listed with him on the ship manifest) shows his parents as the same Pesach and Freida. See
This Pesach passed in 1919. See either

Pesach's parent were Shabsi (Shopse) and Anna. You can locate the exact plot here:

Re: Naturalization record index cards #records

Bob Silverstein asked:
How can I use the naturalization record card to find the naturalization
petition and related documents?

Depending on the county, he may be able to leverage the scanned
petitions on FamilySearch. An example of how to do this can be found for
some of the NYC courts, here:

Bob's signature indicates he is from Illinois. The FamilySearch catalog
would be the place to start. As an example, there are 18 recordsets for
