Re: Can't "identify" name of Galician ancestral town

Odeda Zlotnick
 

If you can, scan that part of the family tree and upload it to ViewMate https://www.jewishgen.org/ViewMate/ - maybe there's another interpretation of the written text.

A search for communities containing "menitz" showed, among others a "Nemenitz" in LIthuania - which in my opinion could be misread as Vchmenitz

what is a "personal marriage certificate"?

Milton Koch
 

I have just reviewed a translation of a birth entry from Dabrowa Rarnowska, which states under father’s column, that there is a “personal marriage certificate”, along with detailed numbers and dates.
What does this term mean and where can these records be found?
Thank you.

Can't "identify" name of Galician ancestral town

how
 

On an old family tree it states that one family came from the town of "Vchmenitz" . I am unable to identify this town using "Town Finder" , JewishGen Gazetteer ,searches in JRI Poland and Ancestry.com . Does anyone have an idea where might be the Galician town of "Vchmenitz"

Thanks so much

Reichsvereinigung der Juden Database: Letter V

Lande
 

The names of 194 registrants whose family names begin with the letter V have been added to the Reichsvereinigung der Juden collection.  This collection (now A-V) may be accessed at the Steve Morse website under Holocaust Jewish Roof Organization.
The data include and may be searched by date and place of birth and death, maiden name and, in some cases, additional information such as country of emigration.  The cards, from which this information was drawn, may be accessed at the Bad Arolsen website and often contain additional information such as address and profession.

Re: Searching

Renee Steinig
 

Stuart,

Have you found the family on the 1910 census? (I couldn't.) That would help narrow down Harry's likely date of death -- assuming that he died, which of course isn't necessarily the case. 

Are there any family stories that indicate whether he died or he and Fannie divorced? Do you know the names of Lillian's children? If she had sons and none were named for Harry, that could be meaningful.

In case you haven't seen, Lily Goldstein's birth record is transcribed on FamilySearch. It says that Harry was born in "Lazy Bei Boehmia Galizie." There were five towns named Lazy in Galicia. (See Gesher Galicia's Galician Town Locator at https://www.geshergalicia.org/galician-town-locator/. ) It's likely that the Lazy near Bochnia is the place (i.e. "Boehmia" was a transcriber's misreading of Bochnia). This Lazy was in the Jewish Administrative District of Nowy Wisnicz. Jewish Records Indexing - Poland (jri-poland.org) has a number of Goldstein records from that district. I didn't see a match to Harry, but perhaps he was related to or even named for the Hersch Goldstein who died in 1880.

Re: Jewishgen Offer

basha@...
 

I'm wondering why an offer like this is sent through the digest and is
only valid for ONE day.

Those people who don't read digests on a strict daily basis have no
opportunity to benefit from this offer such as this and miss out.

But Jewishgen also misses out by not making this offer more "apparent" and
reaping the support of its members.

I too am not happy with this digest format.

Reclaim The Records publishes the Mississippi state death index (1912-1943) for free public use

Asparagirl
 

Reclaim The Records is excited to introduce the first-ever freely-available publication, online or otherwise, of the Mississippi Statewide Death Index! This record set covers deaths in the state of Mississippi from about November 1912 (although a few counties were slow to join in) through 1943.

Up until, oh, right now, the only place anyone could see or use this index was by visiting the Mississippi Department of Archives and History in Jackson, Mississippi in person, then tediously cranking through the faded and scratched microfilm rolls, or shuffling around microfiche sheets for some of the years. But now it's all scanned and online and free to use from your own home, without restrictions or copyrights, forever!

And we at Reclaim The Records couldn't have done this without teamwork: a dedicated young genealogist named Christopher Smothers who knew about the records and about his rights and reached out to us for help; two generous genealogy non-profits that helped us digitize and host these new materials; and a pool of awesome supporters and donors that enabled our work on this project.

To learn more about the Mississippi state death index, how we got it, and to get the direct link right to the new images, please read our latest newsletter:

https://mailchi.mp/reclaimtherecords/the-mississippi-death-index-goes-online

Happy searching!

Re: JEWISH FAMILIES IN SOUTH WALES frederick howard hewson #unitedkingdom

dfowler1953@...
 

many thanks one and all for some excellent leads which i would not have found without you.

at the moment, my jewish heritage is speculation based on a direct comment from an elderly, now deceased relative and other bits and pieces.

it has been wisely suggested that i start with a dna test which i am arranging [a black friday deal too] and will go from there.

on some forums my family would seem rather daring, teenage elopements etc [and my grandmother in WW1 not only faced down a hostile mob but went to the warzone in france and brought back my underage uncle] but i am frankly humbled by the stories revealed in your forum and databases.

Subject: [JewishGen.org] Chevre B'nai Abraham Samuel Anshei Ashisker

 

Hello group,
My great great grandfather Josef Duchowny was buried in 1896 in a plot
at Washington Cemetery in Brooklyn owned by the Mutual Benevolent
Society of Chevre B'nai Abraham Samuel Anshei Ashisker of Manhattan. I
found a listing for them on the Ackman and Ziff Institute website
which indicates that this burial society was attached to a
congregation for immigrants from Eisiskes, Lithuania. I have two
questions for you all about Chevre B'nai Abraham Samuel Anshei
Ashisker.

1. Does anyone have any information about this congregation?

2. I am new to researching burial societies and landsmanshaftn, so
please forgive my simplistic question. My question is, did all people
buried in plots owned by organizations like these come from the town
they were associated with? In other words, can I assume from this that
my great great grandfather came from Eisiskes?

Thank you all so much!
Laurie Duchowny

Formation of an email group about Isle of Man Internment

Tony Hausner
 

Several of us have recently activated an email group about Internment on the Isle of Man.  This is primarily during World War II but also applies to World War I since internment by the British occurred then as well.  In my case, my parents and other family members, all of whom were Jewish, escaped from Vienna shortly after the Anschluss, when the Germans took over Austria in 1938.  Most of my Viennese family members escaped to England. However, a year later most of them were labeled by their local boards as "enemy aliens' and spent as much as a year in separate camps on the Isle of Man.  To join our group, please send an email to me at thausner@...

photographs of a book of 1764-1766 Jewish censuses for the following
towns (and some nearby villages), which I wrote about here in 2018:

Kingdom of Poland: Baranow (Lublin), Konskowola (Lublin) and
Wlostowice, Miedzyrzec Podlaski (Siedlce), Staszow (Radom)

Galicia: Berezhany / Brzezany, Jaroslaw, Kalush / Kalusz, Narayev /

Podolia: Hraniv / Granow, Letychiv / Latyczow, Medzhybizh / Miedzyboz,
Nikolayev / Mikolajow, Sataniv / Satanow (statistics only), Stara
Sinyava / Stara Sieniawa

Volhynia: Klevan / Klewan
