Date:  Sunday, March 21, 2021

Time:  1:00 - 1:30 PM EST check in, chat, and schmooze.
Official program starts promptly at 1:30


Guest Speaker:  David Brill
has been researching his family history in Ukraine, Belarus, Poland, and the United States for over 25 years. A longtime member of JGASGP, he coordinates the Russian Interest Group, and is an avid (and self-taught) translator of prerevolutionary Russian records. In addition to managing the Tuchin, Ukraine, KehilaLinks page, David leads the Rovno Uezd Jewish Records Project for the JewishGen Ukraine Research Division, which is currently translating more than 52,000 records of Jewish families from Tuchin, Rovno and nearby towns.

Topic: 
Getting the Most from Revision Lists - A Regional Approach

Revision lists are among the most important genealogical resources from the Russian Empire, and they are often the only available confirmation that an ancestor lived in a particular shtetl. They may contain important information pertinent to neighboring towns too. Fortunately, we now have access to greatly expanded online databases, plus new sources of online revision lists and other original documents (such as Alex Krakovsky's wiki page, topic of last April's meeting by Joel Spector). This means that it is now easier than ever to expand one's research beyond the borders of a single shtetl and discover previously unknown genealogical connections to nearby communities. David's presentation shares examples from the ongoing Rovno Uezd Jewish Records Project (present-day Rivne, Ukraine) that illustrate the power of a region-wide search. In addition, David will discuss the current status of the Rovno regional translation project, and what a deep reading of the revision lists can tell us about our ancestors' lives in the Russian Pale of the 19
th-century.

Our meetings are for members only.
Please check us out. www.jgasgp.org  We have a fabulous new website with a lot of research information available. We have a comprehensive beginner's guide that is available for everyone to see.

Wolk family of Lithuania #lithuania

David Wolk
 

My great grandparents were Leba and Max Wolk (the latter may have also been known as Shmuel).  Leba's maiden name was Broskey and she was born approx. 1846, possibly in eastern Germany.  Max/Shmuel's details are largely unknown other than he and Leba lived, at one stage, in or near Petkunai, Lithuania.  He may also have lived in Krakinovo.  They had six children, all of whom - save possibly one daughter - had immigrated to the U.S. and South Africa by about 1905.  Leba also left Lithuania around 1905 and sailed to the U.S. where she lived variously in Mass., New Hampshire and lastly New York where she died.  She is buried in a Hudson, N.Y. cemetery next to other Broskey family members.  I can only assume Max died in Lithuania prior to Leba's immigration.  Is it possible anyone on JewishGen has any information on Max or his branch of the Wolk family in Lithuania?  It would be greatly welcomed.

True about the "honorary" aunts and uncles, but writing "nephew" on a form is a little more formal, isn't it?

Tracing Stefanie BECK from Vienna to London #austria-czech #unitedkingdom

r.wormsley@...
 

I am trying to trace any records for a Stefanie BECK who came to London in the early 1900's.  Stefanie was born on 21 Apr 1913 in Vienna, Austria.  She came to the UK with her parents (unknown) sometime before 1939.
In 1939 we have the following records from the 
WW2 Internees (Aliens) Index Cards 1939-1947.
Living at 77 St Mark's Rd, London, W10 and working as a maid for a Mrs Goldstein at 106 Oxford Gdns, London
This information is confirmed on the 1939 England and Wales Register.
It is believed she returned to Austria in 1956, possibly using the name Garriock and died on 13 Sep 1977
Any information on Stefanie's family history would be appreciated.
Kind regards

Hi,

Of course, there is the old story that one of your ancestors. or the 'cousin' took/borrowed/stole this surname and therefore there might be no DNA connection.

You also need to consider false paternity, adoptions, children of 1st and 2nd marriages,  and relationships by marriage but not by blood. I think the general figure is that false paternity could account for 10%, meaning that a child may not be the child of both expected parents.

POLISH CERTIFICATE OF NATIONALITY #poland #general #austria-czech

Ian Charles
 

My paternal grandfather was born in Krakow in 1884 and came to the UK in 1900. I know it was part of Austria at that time, but in his naturalisation folder in 1923 there's a note from someone in the Home Office that he (quote) "was issued a Polish Certificate of Nationality no 1760, issued by the Polish Consul in London, on 18 August 1919" Does anyone know whether it's possible to acquire a copy of this certificate, or at least to establish it existed? His (unusual) surname was Padorca - just in case I have a relative reading this message :)

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

billie.stein@...
 

Is the 1900 census available for other locations, too? I am particularly interested in the tiny village (too small to call it a shtetl) of Zukowice Nowe, in the Tarnow district. All I've seen to date is a summary, and was under the impression that the original was destroyed after the summarization.

Best wishes to all for a happy, healthy, kosher Passover.

French Government to Return Klimt Painting Stolen By Nazis to Descendants of Jewish Owners #france #holocaust

Jan Meisels Allen
 

 

 

 

 

 

The French government said that it will return a Gustav Klimt landscape painting that the Nazis stole in 1938 from to the family of Nora Stiasny, a Holocaust victim from a prominent Austrian family who was forced to sell the painting in August 1938. The rightful owners.

 

Stiasny and her famiy were deported to occupdied poland and murdered n 1942.

 

The painting has for many years been at the Musée d’Orsay museum in Paris, which said it had investigated the painting’s provenance when it acquired “Rosebushes” in 1980. “The decision to return a major work from the public collections illustrates our commitment to the duty of justice and reparation vis-à-vis plundered families,” French Culture Minister Roselyne Bachelot said.

 

Bachelot said that French authorities hadn’t initially identified the painting as being stolen by the Nazis, and its provenance only recently came to light after they made investigations into the issue.

 

Thousands of artworks looted by the Nazis across Europe wound up in French museums after the allies defeated Nazi Germany in 1945. Though many have been returned, French authorities have stepped up efforts in recent years to find homes for the scores that remain unclaimed.

Viewmate translation verification request - Russian and Hebrew / Yiddish #yiddish #translation #ukraine

alan moskowitz
 

I've posted a 1908 marriage record of my grandparents that is written in Russian and in Hebrew or Yiddish, for which I need the translation checked for completeness and correctness.  I need every possible clue that this record has to offer.  Because it is handwritten and some parts of it might be a bit difficult to read, I am also posting 3 separate links of enlargements.   These are for marriage number 34, on the left facing page.  The translation posted on Viewmate was derived from the Russian language (not from the Hebrew) and originated from the Ukrainian Archives.  The full document, is on ViewMate at the following address ...

The enlargements of the same document are adjacent in viewmate, and are at these addresses:

https://www.jewishgen.org/viewmate/viewmateview.asp?key=VM92674
https://www.jewishgen.org/viewmate/viewmateview.asp?key=VM92675
https://www.jewishgen.org/viewmate/viewmateview.asp?key=VM92676

Please respond via the form provided for the master ViewMate image (VM92673) and not on the enlargements, unless you think it is necessary.  The enlargements are just sections taken from top to bottom, in numerical order. 
Thank you very much.

ViewMate translation request - Polish #translation

Good afternoon,
 
I've posted a vital record in Polish for which I need a translation. It is on ViewMate at the following address ...
ViewMate - Image 92671 - Translation - Polish - Poland - Warszawa - Wilinska Ramocka Cyzkowska Maslowska Bor - 1825
 
 
 
  I am having a really difficult time with translating this death document for Konstancja Wilińska from Warsaw. A marginal note recorded by the person who digitized this record states "72 lata zd. Wilińska z Kaliskiego l v Ramocka wdowa syn Bonifacy Ramocki córki Julianna z. Cyzkowska i Agnieszka z. Masłowska." I assume this means that her maiden name was Wilińska and that she died at age 72 and may have been born in Kalisz. Here are some of my questions...please forgive my naivite...Are Julianna and Agnieszka the daughters or sisters of Konstancja? Are Czykowska and Masłowska their married names or do they have different surnames because Konstancja had two other husbands with those surnames plus a Borkowski and a Ramocki? I am so confused. I would certainly appreciate a full translation of the document with as much information as can be found translated. If not, I would be happy if anyone can just answer the questions I have posed. Thank you and bless you.
 
Thank you very much for any help that you may be able to provide.  I truly appreciate your effort.

Please respond via the form provided on the ViewMate image page.
 
 Attached is a marriage record dated 1897 between Aleksander Dziubani and Wanda Franciszka Ratajska in Lodz. I am mainly concerned with knowing whether both Aleksander and Wanda Franciszka were married (to other people) before and that this may be their second marriage. If this document gives surnames of any previous marriage, please let me know too. What I am specifically trying to determine is whether Aleksander had ever married a Jozefa Sosnowska. Any details like dates and ages (especially for Aleksander) would also be appreciated. Thank you so very much for any assistance you may be able to provide.
