Re: Need Help to Understand the Lodz Ghetto List #poland

Hi from Paris,
Dear Harris,
Lodz ghetto archives have been fully preserved and are ca. 800.000 pages of documents.
You can find more than 95% on line at Polish state archives :
https://szukajwarchiwach.pl/39/278/0#tabZespol
But to search, nothing is more valuable that the Finding Aid established by USHMM, 165 pages of explanation ! 
Thanks to Megan Lewis, USHMM Library referee, I could understand how to search.
Lists of "Residents", in fact ghetto's detainees, are numerous and as been established from ghetto's start in 1940 to its end in June 1944.
So some persons have an "address" change within ghetto without any other indication.
All lists have been scanned by Yad Vashem and OFRLI (Organisation of Former Resident of Lodz in Israel) ca 1994.
Index  have been made by JewishGen and explanations are here :
https://www.jewishgen.org/databases/Poland/LodzGhetto.html
I tell you my truth : when you start to search and follow your Lost's fates among these 800.000 pages of real archives, records of last attempts for some more days of life and records of Holocaust , you don't leave them before numerous hours.

Need Help to Understand the Lodz Ghetto List #poland

Harry Kleinbourg
 

Hello everyone,
 
In the Database of JewishGen, I've found some of my relatives in the list of the Lodz Ghetto.
 
I need some help to undertstand some of the information found in the list:
 
  • In the row named "Deported/Type-Transport/Destination":
    • For one of the line, there is "26/09/1942 / AUSG" -> I assume AUG is for "Ausgehen". Does it mean the relative has been deported from the Ghetto on the 26th of Sept 1942? 
    • For another entry, there is a date only: 04/06/1942. Without the word "AUSG" -> Is it just an oversight? How must I understant this?

  • Is there a way to find the list of the transports and the exact destination which are in relation with the dates above? I know a lot of jewish have been deported to Chełmno and murdered there. But one of my relatives who has been recorded into the Lodz Ghetto List has been deported in Auschwitz for sure and have survived. So it seems that Chelmno wasn't the unique destination... 
  • Some lines have nothing for the row "Deported/Type-Transport/Destination". Does it mean those people haven't been deported? 

  • row "Residence Address": is that the address before entering into the guetto?

  • Some lines have the same person but the addresses are different. For instance, for my relative Cyrla MATYS, there is one line with Residence Address A, and Ghetto Street house B. And a second line with Residence Address C, and Ghetto Street house D. How must I understand such entries? Is there a way to know the dates when each entry has been recorded?
 
Thanks for any help / advice / recommandation / ideas
 
Best Regards,
 
Harry Kleinbourg

Possible descendancy from R' Chaim of Volozhin #rabbinic

Yonatan Ben-Ari
 

A scribbled note in our family mentions that my great grandmother was
a descendent of R' Chaim of Volozhin. From my maternal side my great
great grandmother was Sarah Hinde who married Shlomo KANTOR of Karlin
(Pinsk).

A rumor in the family states that R' Itzaleh escorted her to her Chupa
(wedding canopy) as her parents had died already. This is similar to
the published biography of the family that Itzaleh's daughter who
married LANDAU did in fact pass away during Itzaleh's lifetime. The
problem is that Sarah Hinde is not mentioned in any published family
tree of the Volozhiners.

One of Sarah Hinde's children is named Chaim Dov(KANTOR) but that does
not confirm descendancy from Reb' Chaim himself. This Chaim Dov KANTOR
was a well known Rabbinic Chalutz in Israel but his family also do not
know the exact connection to the Volozhin family.

If anyone has information on Reb' Chaim of Volozhin's tree which has
not been published I'd appreciate hearing from you.

TIA

Yoni Ben-Ari, Jerusalem

Gnesya is a name used in Sholom-Aleichem's story "The Pot". (Said Gnesya is a neighbor/boarder of the main character.) I assume the name was common enough.

Re: What was the purpose of this document issued in Czarist Russia? #russia

Phil Goldfarb
 

Actually the Russian Internal Passports began in the early 18th Century by Peter the Great issued to control migration in the country. It was abandoned after the October 1917 Russian Revolution. There are also the Lithuania Internal Passports issued between 1919-1940 and the Latvia Internal Passports issued between 1919-1941. If you are attending the 2021 IAJGS Conference virtually, I am presenting a program titled: Passports: The History of Passports, Passport Applications, Russian/Lithuania/Latvia Internal Passports and the Nansen Passports for Refugees which you might find of interest. I also discuss passports and passport applications in the U.S. and show a few funny & unusual ones! Finally, the very first "passport" was issued to a Jewish official-Nehemiah back in 450 B.C.E by King Artaxerxes I of Persia for travel to Judea!

Kolomea, Galicia, birth record, translation? #translation #galicia #ukraine

c_spaghetti@...
 

Good afternoon! This is part of a birth record (found on jri-poland.org) for Pesia Trepner, born to my husband's great-grandparents Josef and Sima (Greier) Trepner in Kolomea in 1904. (Josef & Sima immigrated to New York about five years later, and known there as Joseph and Sadie.)

Would anyone be able to translate this? I would so much appreciate it! The entries also make reference to Nadwórna and Bukovina. I'm thinking the language here is German, but am not sure.

Re: 1925 New York Census #records #usa

Sherri Bobish
 

Hi Cindy,
 
The census is supposed to be a picture of a moment frozen in time.  The date chosen to represent that census is supposed to represent that moment.  For example, technically, no matter what date the enumerator actually interviewed the family, the information is supposed to reflect what was what on that one specific date.  In the case of the 1925 census that date was June 1.

Now, does that plan always work in practice?  No, it does not.

Here is an explanation of how 1925 census enumerators were instructed to record ages of infants:

https://www.ancestry.com/search/collections/2704/
"The final column for inmates and infants served a dual purpose. It was used to list the “residence (Borough, City or Town and County) given by or for the inmates when admitted,” unless the inmate had no other permanent residence. For children under one year of age, enumerators were told to “write the exact number of days of its age on June 1, 1925. For example, if the child was born on January 1, 1925, you would enter the age as ‘151 D’. (If a child is under one year of age and was born at some other place of abode than that in which its permanent residence is on June 1, 1925, enter in column 12 the city or village and state in which it was born; in column 1, street and street number).”"

Hope this helps,

Sherri Bobish


Re: What was the purpose of this document issued in Czarist Russia? #russia

I have the same passport document for my grandmother dated 1910. She emigrated to the USA later the same year. Translation of my grandmother's passport provided her father and husband's names, a physical description (taller than average), and information that she was illiterate. It included the same official stamps as the passport image you shared. We had also found a document from her village verifying her identify that we believe was required for her to receive the passport.

Re: What was the purpose of this document issued in Czarist Russia? #russia

Just a guess.  Maybe these documents were needed to prove that the person was neither a serf who should have been returned to their owner or a soldier who was AWOL (Absent without leave) and the person was of good repute to have such a document, but was in fact saying goodbye to relations and making their way to leave Russia by hopping over the border.  I suspect that some sort of document was needed for a Russian to visit (or go to live with a spouse) on Internal exile in Eastern Siberia.  I would have thought that people, such as my grandfather, would have ditched such a document in case it was used to return him to Russia from Germany. He was very suspicious of Police for most of the rest of his life in Germany, France and England and none of his addresses before he setup in London has so far proved to be correct.
