Town may be Novo Alexandrovsk #lithuania

Shalom Julian Peerutin:

Novo Hercandrask, Kovno Gov, Russia, may refer to Novo Alexandrovsk
which is in the Kovno province (or gubernia) of Lithuania. It is now
called Zarazai.

Zarasai [Lith], Ezsherene [Yid], Novo-Aleksandrovsk [Rus, 1836-1918],
Jeziorosy [Pol], Sarasen [Ger], Ezerenai [Lith, 1919-29], Ezhereni
[Yid], Ezherena, Ezherene, Ezreni, Novo Alexandrovsk Russian:
In NE Lithuania, 74 miles E of Paneveys (Ponevezh), 15 miles SW
of Daugavpils (Dvinsk), Latvia. Jewish Population in 1900: 3,562
1900: Novo-Aleksandrovsk, Novo-Aleksandrovsk uyezd, Kovno gubernia,
Russian Empire
1930: Zarasai, Zarasai apskritis, Lithuania

I could find no match for Hercandrask in Lithuania. Kovno is
definitely in Lithuania. Because Lithuania was part of the
Russian empire, many of these places were said to be in Russia.

Try tracking your great grandfather in as many records as possible
on the All Lithuania Database and see what you can find. Be sure
to let the site search use "sounds like" and not the exact spelling
of his name.

Hope this helps.

Hi,

According to a record I found, my great grandfather was born in Novo

Re: Looking for records from Narol, Galicia #galicia

<<My WALDER ancestors came >from the village of Narol, now in southeast
Poland near the Ukraine border. I have been unable to determine whether
there are any Jewish vital records for Narol. I suspect that if there are,
they are consolidated with records of a larger town, but which town that
might be remains a mystery. If anyone has succeeded in finding vital
records for Narol, please pass along where you found it. Many thanks.>>

Joseph... I went to RTR foundation and found only immigration and voter
lists in the Polish archives. Depending on the dates, they may be of
interest to you.

I tried the LDS catalog too. They have a microfilm on Narol school
records, which might be accessible at a local family history center.

The Polish state archives (Pradziad database) lists Narol birth, marriage
and death records -- Catholic and mostly >from the 1800s. See
http://baza.archiwa.gov.pl/sezam/pradziad.php?l=en

When I queried Narol on JewishGen's community pages and checked the
nearby towns, the biggest Jewish town nearby was Tomascow Lubelski.

When I checked Gesher Galicia's database, there were also records for
Narol, and the town locator showed the administrative district as
Cieszanow and the Jewish administrative district as Lipsko (town 1 mile
away).

I tried JewishGen's country database and saw a few records. Also many
interesting links on the "search website" (under the about us oval). But
best, many on JRI-Poland. There are no blocks of town records for Narol,
but many for folks >from Narol but living elsewhere. I actually saw a birth
record in Olesycze in 1903 for Aron Leiser Walder, son of Maks >from Narol.

And a great source... Google. Look at google for Narol + genealogy + Jewish.

Have you thought of creating a KehilaLinks page and asking the other
researchers (>from the JewishGen FamilyFinder) if they have anything to
contribute? That worked for me a little further south... Krosno, Dukla,
Nowy Zmigrod, Rymanow, Rohatyn, Dubiecko, Strzyzow, Jasienica. Many
folks sent me interesting material >from the towns which I added to the pages.

By the way, I am working on a course in Galician Research (target third
quarter) to review history, records and the many sources on the internet;
this would include one on one assistance for a chosen Galician branch.

Hope this helps.

they can only be obtained in person. Know of anyone willing to do

If you haven't already, I would search the data bases for Belarus,
Lithuania, and Poland to see if you can find info on birth record
and revision lists.

If you haven't already, you also may want to provide via the

some help via that route.
