I don't think it has much significance. It could be accidental or perhaps she has something in her hand,

Re: Vale Simonas Dovidavicius

 Thank you for posting about Simonas' passing.  I am terribly saddened.

What a wonderful, warm man. He was my guide, chauffeur, interpreter and researcher when I visited Lita 2 summers ago. He helped me in the archives, both in Kovno/Kaunas and Vilna/Vilnius and found documents that I was searching for. He helped me find a "Savanoris" (War of Independence volunteer) military medal to take the place of the one owned (and confiscated) by my grandfather for his military service; this medal saved his life during the massacres at the 7th Fort in June-July, 1941; he brought pre-WW2 street maps to help me find the homes of my mother's and father's families. And, he introduced me to his Jewish community for an Erev Shabbat and to the Sugihara museum, of which he was so proud. He was generous with his time and his knowledge and we enjoyed speaking both Yiddish and Hebrew together.
  I will miss him.
Rest in Peace, Chaver

A shutter release ended with a rubber bulb. To squeeze it, all fingers are engaged. Since this is a studio photo, it's beside the point. The had gesture was accidental, most likely. If I am mistaken and there is/was a special significance to it, will be happy to learn.

BAUCHMANN family of Hungary, Ukraine, Poland, Austria - ViewMate 75664 #hungary

Selma Sheridan
 

Dear researchers,

Thanks to the translation >from Hungarian into English by a wonderful
JewishGen volunteer, - see ViewMate 75664, - a family mystery may be closer
to a solution, with your help. Here is the story.

The parents of my paternal grandmother, Jocheved BEITEL / BEUTEL r.
BAUCHMANN (born Potok Zloty, 1881), were Hersch BEUTEL (born Skalat, 1852)
and Chave BAUCHMANN (place and birth date unknown). My father said that
Hersch BEUTEL had two wives, but he did not know any details about the wife
unrelated to his mother, not even her name.

My father and his mother travelled by train around 1915-18 >from Vienna where
they lived, to visit his mother's relative and "Onkel CENNOVER", - as my
father spelled it, - who lived in Budapest. So I assumed that the wife of
Uncle CENNOVER was a sister of his mother, with the maiden name BEUTEL /
BEITEL r. BAUCHMANN, or variants.

The CENNOVER / CYNOWER family of Budapest had three daughters, whom my
father remembered, and I found the birth record of eldest daughter, Ilona
CYNOWER. The other two daughters were Sara and Anna. Appended to Ilona's
birth record was the marriage record of Ilona's parents. Ilona's mother was
not my father's aunt, not a child of Hersch BEUTEL or of Chave BAUCHMANN,
but a child of Izsak Bar BAUCHMANN and Dina BAUCHMANN (maiden name not
listed), - neither of whose names was ever mentioned by my father.

How did Izsak Bar BAUCHMANN acquire his family name? - was he a son of Chave
BAUCHMANN with Hersch BEUTEL or with another man; or a son of a relative of
Chave BAUCHMANN? Who was Dina BAUCHMANN? - a daughter of Chave BAUCHMANN
with Hersch BEUTEL; or unrelated to the BAUCHMANN family name except by
marriage? Or were Izsak Bar and Dina BAUCHMANN cousins? I have been unable
to learn more about the relationship of Ilona's mother's parents to my
father's mother. Any suggestions regarding finding documents to clarify
this - in Hungary, Ukraine, Poland, or Austria, - would be much appreciated.

Re: IAJGS Meeting San Diego #france

Jackye Sullins
 

Hi Rosanne,

A meeting of some sort is a good idea. I suggest you don't stress over a
formal IAJGS lunch but organize an informal lunch or dinner independently.
The JGS Illinois does one every year and other groups do the same. It will
also be less expensive. An informal meeting without a meal is another
possibility.

The time is coming close when a decision must be made about the

As a fourteen year-old Joseph APPELBAUM left Simnas for the United

Germany at YATKUNNY with the help of a bribed Russian soldier.

Can someone identify the current spelling and exact location of Yatkunny?

Thanks, Corinna. Actually, the photo was taken by a photographer in Lviv (Lwow at that time). I cropped the photo before I posted it so that the woman's hand was easier to see, but the full photo includes the imprint of a photographer, T. Jaworski, in the lower corner.

Hello Jeff,

this is not „intentional“ with a special meaning but the woman most probably took the photograph by herself – with assistance of a pneumatic (?) shutter release (remote). I believe I can see a cable.

Gesher Galicia's research and other activities #austria-czech

Gesher Galicia SIG
 

At this season and as we approach the start of another year of
genealogical research at Gesher Galicia, we want to update you on the
plans for next year's research projects, and ask for your support.

Our program for the year, across a range of projects, is again
ambitious. In addition, there is the recently launched Przemysl
Identification Project, in which Gesher Galicia members do the
identifications, which we announced at the end of October.

Plans for our existing projects for 2020 include the following.

Vital Records Project
The basis for genealogical research. Over the past eight years, and
since the launch of the All Galicia Database, we have uploaded indexes
for some 470,000 Jewish Galician vital records. In the past 12 months
alone, we have indexed some 30,000 vital records. The towns in next
year=E2=80=99s project include Kosow, Krakow, Kroscienko, Lezajsk, Mosciska=
,
Nawaria, Podhajce, Rzeszow, Stanislawow, Tarnopol, Tartakow, Tyczyn,
and Zborow. For more information see:
https://www.geshergalicia.org/projects/vital-records-census/ .

Holocaust Project
We continue to work on the large project of Stanislawow Ghetto
documents. Records >from the period of the Nazi German occupation are
held in state archives in both Przemysl and Ivano-Frankivsk. We will
have indexed part of the Przemysl-based records by the end of this
year and the indexes will be publicly available and announced on
Holocaust Memorial Day in January. We will then complete that set and
move to the larger batch in Ivano-Frankivsk. See:
https://www.geshergalicia.org/projects/the-holocaust-project/ .

Josephine and Franciscan Cadastral Survey Records Project
This project has uncovered much exciting information in the past four
years. Since its inception, some 53,000 J&F cadastral survey records
have been indexed, >from 56 towns. In 2020, J&F records >from 10 towns
will be indexed and put onto the database, including >from Baranow,
Bursztyn, Dubiecko, Dunajow, Jazlowiec, Narajow, Nowy Babilon, Nowy
S=C4=85cz, Nowy Targ, and Tarnobrzeg. For further information, please see:
https://www.geshergalicia.org/projects/josephine-and-franciscan-surveys-pro=
ject/
.

Medical Students Project
This specialist project brings together records and biographical
details of Galician students who attended a number of universities in
Austria-Hungary and its successor states (post 1918). To date, we have
made available information on some 3,500 Jewish medical students and
midwives attending the universities in Lemberg/Lwow, Krakow
(Jagiellonian), Pest, and Prague. Our members have also gained access
to the annotated database with complementary biographical data from
several other sources. See:
https://www.geshergalicia.org/projects/galician-medical-students-doctors-pr=
oject/
.

Apart >from these projects, we will continue to produce maps for the
Map Room. Appearing soon will be maps >from Gorlice and S=C4=99dziszow, and
a map of Galicia, produced in Russia, >from the first decade of the
19th century. There is also the Jewish Taxpayers Project, which has
indexed records >from the 1930s >from 24 towns to date, and will finish
in 2020 with a final set of eight towns - Narajow, Olesko, Podkamien,
Sasow, Sokolowka, Uscieczko, Zbaraz, and Zloczow.

The Fond 424 Project also continues through next year. We have already
uploaded to the Members Portal all the scans of 151 of the most
genealogically relevant files (out of a total of 207 files) in Fond
424 at AGAD. In 2020, we will follow this up with spreadsheets in the
Members Portal of all the Fond 424 files we have indexed, and we will
also update the Fond 424 files that are publicly searchable on our
online database. Our Inventories Project, to produce good and easily
searchable archival inventories online, which took off this year, will
be expanded.

All this work is expensive. We have struggled sometimes in the past in
raising enough funds for all the worthwhile projects that are planned,
and have more than once had to defer parts of these projects to the
following year. We rely on our members and other supporters to be able
to continue our work in 2020.

Please consider giving to one or more of the projects listed above or
to the "General Research Fund". This fund provides additional
financial resources - where needed - for producing maps and indexing
records. It also provides for unexpected expenses in the existing
regular projects, for maintaining our online archival inventories, and
- importantly - for covering the significant administrative costs of
the new Przemysl Identification Project.

To donate to any of these projects and funds, by credit card or
PayPal, please go to the "Donate" button at the top right-hand corner
of the Gesher Galicia home page, or directly to
https://www.geshergalicia.org/donate/.

You may also pay by check, indicating which project(s) or funds you

Mysterious collection of online records for Trebitsch #austria-czech

Michael Gordy
 

On badatelna, the scanned registers for Trebitsch (Trebic) include
volume 2173 of early births, marriages and deaths. Near the end of
the volume is an unlabeled collection of folios that might (I'm only
guessing here) represent transfers of Familianten permissions. Does
anyone with knowledge of the families of Trebitsch have an opinion on
how to interpret?

The collection spans many pages starting here:
http://www.badatelna.eu/fond/1073/reprodukce/?zaznamId=2860&reproId=46557
The later pages in this collection contain more detail.
