Stanislawow/Ivano-Frankivsk - an enquiry regarding the 1900 census conducted in the city by the Austro-Hungarians #galicia #ukraine

Avi Bitron
 

Before the well known and meticulously translated 1939 census, conducted in Stanislawow/Ivano-Frankivsk by the Polish government, there were 2 other censuses - one in 1857 and another one in 1900 - both conducted by the Autron-Hungarians. The two full censuses can be found at the archives of Ivano Frnakivsk (DAIFO) as well as at the CAHJP in Jerusalem.

The 1900 census - beautifully and clearly preserved, was conducted according to the house numbers in town. During that period, the street system was about to be introduced and all the houses in town (more than 400 of them) were numbered. The census started at house no. 1 and continued in an orderly manner.

For some unknown reason, some of the houses are not mentioned in the census. For example, after house no. 74 comes house no. 77. I was looking for house no. 76, I went through the full length of the census but could not find any details or reason why the data skips those houses (which definitely existed). Unfortunately for me, these were the houses I was looking for.

Would anyone have a clue why is that? alternatively, would anyone have an idea whom to ask about that?

For your convenience, I include the relevant page. You can clearly see that after 74 2/4 come 77 2/4. 

Thank you very much

To clarify, the starting time for the Cyrillic handwriting webinar is March 24 at 7PM (19 hours) Eastern Daylight Time, which is the time zone on the east coast of the United States. Daylight Savings (Summer) Time here starts on March 14, so if you are in a place that won’t have advanced its clocks yet, you will need to take that into account.

Hello,

- Are there any registers of soldiers incorporated into the Russian army during the Russo-Japanese War?

- In particular, are there any registers of soldiers incorporated into the Kharkov artillery regiment during the Russo-Japanese War?

- Are there any registers of deserters from the Russian army during the Russo-Japanese War?

- If so, who keeps these records? Have they been digitized?

Any expert advice in this area is welcome and thank him in advance.

Re: Suggestion for a Jewish name for Sevek #poland #names

Rodney Eisfelder
 

Relly,
I've found two examples of people called Sevek, buried here in Melbourne, Australia. The inscriptions of both graves include hebrew names, so you are in luck.
Sevek Duzenman (born in Warsaw) had the hebrew name Shlomo David ( שלמה דוד ). On National Archives files (www.naa.gov.au), his name is shown as Severin. 
Sevek Szafrajzen had the hebrew name Shevach ( שבח ). He was also born in Warsaw and appears as Sewek on National Archives files.

I hope this helps,

Re: Soviet Union Military Records #russia

Risa Heywood
 

Thank you for posting these websites. Are there any Soviet military records for non-Soviet men who were forced into the Red Army during WWII and survived? I am researching a Hungarian man who escaped from a Hungarian labor battalion and spent time fighting with a partisan group. When the partisan group was captured by the Soviet army, he was issued with a Russian army uniform and guns.  He spent the rest of the war fighting on the German Eastern Front and was part of “hellacious” battles.  Would any Soviet army records have been created for someone in that circumstance?

Peter,
These sites were created by Ministry of Defense of the Russian Federation, long after dissolution of the Soviet Union.
I recommend using https://pamyat-naroda.ru/ as a primary site, while also checking the 2 you mention.  It brings in information from more sources.  For example, there is only one result for my ggfather in OBD, but 3 results in Pamyat Naroda.
https://foto.pamyat-naroda.ru/ is a site that allows submission of photos and creation of a profile with the biography and links to the documents at https://pamyat-naroda.ru/.

Ministry of Defense also created a WWI site, where among various documents you can locate information about wounded, missing, pow, killed, and awarded soldiers. https://gwar.mil.ru/

If you navigate to any of these sites, there are links to all sites mentioned in this thread at the bottom of the page.

MHeritage also has/had a download but had to be searched for in
the settings.  I am asking it of Ancestry.
 
There was a app that, IMO, caused DOS on the Ancestry site but
would build a spreadsheet. I tried it once, but as I wrote a few
words back, IMO it would cause  denial-of-service.
 
DOS is when an app causes so much traffic to a site, usually with
the assistance of many machine at many sites, that the online user
has trouble accessing the data (service),
 
The solution many sites have found, not only genealogy sites, is to collect requests
and run the query at off times and at a lower priority, and preparing downloadable
files.

Looking for Greenberg Family Members from Lithuania that moved to New York, USA around 1900. #lithuania #usa

Sharon Ann Dror
 

Is there anyone on this page that have family members that knew Arthur Penn and Irving Penn's mother Sonia Freda's family? Her maiden name was Greenberg. Born in 1894 in Novo Alexandrovsk, Russia - Lithuania. She moved to the USA in 1910 and joined her brother in NY. who was 4 years older than Sonia.

I am trying to find out her brother's name and family if any...

Sonia married to Harry Tzvi Penn in Manhattan, NY on March 27, 1916. They have two sons: Arthur and Irving. Divorced.

Her son Arthur Penn published several books and mentions Sonia came to America in 1910 and stayed with her brother. Then she married Harry Penn in 1916. Had two sons - Arthur in 1917 and Irving in 1922. Divorced in 1925.

Remarried to Meyer Helfand in 1940. She died on Sept 18, 1979. And Meyer died on July 6, 1973. They are buried together at Mount Moriah in Fairview, NJ.

Irving and Arthur’s books do not mention any relative names, only his mother Sonia and father Harry.

Sonia wrote a 100 page journal in 1960 and there are no family names mentioned. Only says my brother .... my mother... uncle and aunt.... etc no individual names.

There is a Chaim Greenberg that married to Cecilia Feinberg and they have one daughter Doris Salameth Greenberg. Doris got married to Sidney Rosenberg. I have all details on Cecilia attending the Temple University's Dentistry School. I have contacts with Doris' granddaughters. They did not know Chaim at all. They immigrated from Lithuania or Russia to New York. Chaim and Cecilia got divorced. I would love to get details on Chaim Greenberg. 

So there is Chaim and Sonia - I suspect Chaim is Sonia's uncle. Per Sonia's marriage certificate to Harry Penn, her father is Mosche Greenberg and mother is Tauve Mesimik. I was told both were killed in the Holocaust.

Soviet Union Military Records #russia

Some years ago the Soviet Union compiled a database, in Russian, listing all Soviet soldiers who died in WWII.  This database, https://obd-memorial.ru/html, contains 20 million documents and provides a wealth of information on individuals not otherwise available, including ethnic origin, e.g. Jewish, Russian, Kazakh, etc.  In many cases, but not all, researchers may find information about a surviving relative, even with an address where that person resided.  A separate database. http://podvignaroda.ru??#tab=navthome, provides information on soldiers who received medals in WWII.

ABOUT OUR 3/8/2021 PROGRAM
Gary Pokrassa, Data Acquisition Director of JewishGen's Ukraine Research Division, will present on Alex Krakovsky's Wiki and records digitization projects. Alex is a Ukrainian, who, using freedom of information laws in Ukraine, forced virtually every archive to permit him to scan their records and post them to an online wiki page, yielding a massive amount of raw data for the Ukraine researcher. Gary will go through Alex's postings and describe how to navigate the Wiki to locate town records and how to find hidden data not obvious on the home page. Gary will also describe the Ukraine Research Group's project to capture Alex's scanned files on the JewishGen server, which includes Index files for several of the larger cities including Kiev, Zhitomir Nikolaev and Odessa, and how the Ukraine Research Group is using these files in translation projects. He will speak on changes that have taken place since last August. A robust question and answer will be included in this evening's presentation, as well as an overview of JewishGen's Ukraine Research Division.

Re: How Weird Are We? #general March 1st #general

It’s so interesting to read the many reactions we Muggles get. I started my Family Tree to see if I could find descendants of my maternal grandmother. With the exception of 2 brothers who made it to Shanghai, nothing was known of them after the Holocaust. I really wanted to make contact them. Over time, I added my 3 other grandparents and turned it into 2 trees. I diligently learned and spent money to get documents to reinforce the connections. The DNA world was a bonus. I had relatives on both sides of my family to separate my results. One of the best lessons I learned from contacting people and being contacted is that if one side of the conversation has no real tree, and don’t fit neatly into yours, you will be disappointed. I’ve met several wonderful people who became long distance good friends. That enriches my life. But I am still determined to my find my Terners, and Goldscheins from Kolomea, and my Platz’s from Delaytn.
