Szechynie 1852 cadastral map now on Gesher Galicia's Map Room #galicia #poland #ukraine

Jay Osborn
 

Just posted on the Gesher Galicia Map Room: A full-color 1852 cadastral map of the small Galician town of Szechynie (now Shehyni, a Ukrainian border checkpoint for crossing to and from Poland):

https://maps.geshergalicia.org/cadastral/szechynie-shehyni-1852/

Three weeks ago we posted a historical map of Medyka to the Gesher Galicia Map Room. Before the collapse of the Habsburg Empire, these small Galician towns were adjacent to each other on the important road (and later rail line) between Lemberg (Lwów, Lviv) and Przemyśl. Today the towns face each other across a post-WWII national border and serve as crossing points, Medyka in Poland and Shehyni in Ukraine (the former Szechynie is now known as Szeginie in Polish).

This historical map is complete and in excellent condition. Although noticeably small, really only a village, by 1852 Szechynie already had buildings and staff to serve the imperial administration, including a significant postal center, a riding school, and other structures, as well as what appear to be three roadhouses. Today's Shehyni (still quite small) is similar, with customs and migration controls, transit stations and truck parking, a concentration of small hotels and cafes – but the riding school is now a farm.

This stitched digital composite map was assembled and presented in interactive format by Gesher Galicia. Images for this historical map were provided to Gesher Galicia by the Archiwum Państwowe w Przemyślu. To see many more cadastral maps of Galician cities, towns, and villages in full detail, visit the Gesher Galicia Map Room:

Looking for a page in Yugoslavia yizkor book #austria-czech #hungary #romania #yizkorbooks

Adam Turner
 

Anyone out there have a copy of Pinkas ha-kehilot: Encyclopaedia of Jewish Communities: Yugoslavia? I am researching a person who (according to Judy Petersen's name index) is apparently mentioned on page 126 of this book, Emanuel Sparger.

My research has suggested that Emanuel Sparger was most likely a cantor who lived at various times in Linz, Austria, Budapest, and Oradea, Romania (aka Nagyvárad). His son Oskar (who perished, along with his wife, in the Jasanovec concentration camp) was an engineer in the Zagreb area, so it would make sense if his father Emanuel also ended up in Zagreb. My local Holocaust library has a copy of the book, but it's closed during the pandemic, so I'd be interested in seeing this one page if anyone has a copy!

Re: Post cards from pre-WWI Russia #russia #general

m_tobiasiewicz@...
 

I have post cards from Poland around 1900 with pictures of either family and friends on front. It was cheaper then (as it is now) to send a post card than it was to send a letter. So they  sent the photo a a post card. In my case, the people are too far away to make out details on their faces. I assume my grandparents knew who they were.

Where is Lakma, Hungary? #hungary

Dan Rottenberg
 

I'm trying to track the movements of my Hungarian maternal ancestors, mostly named Klein, Spielberger, and Burger. They appear to have lived in villages around Kosice (then Kassa) in the early 19th Century before migrating southward over several decades to Miskolc and from there to America in the 1870s. On an 1882 birth certificate in New York, my great-grandparents Herman and Julia Klein listed their birthplaces, respectively, as "Michallitz" and "Lakma, Ungaren" (that is, Hungary). I presume Michallitz is a misspelling of Miskolc. But where is Lakma? I've never found any town by that name in any database— not in JewishGen, Google, or even Jordan Auslander's comprehensive Genealogical Gazetteer of the Kingdom of Hungary. I presume Lakma is a misspelling of some other town name, presumably near Miskolc. But what town might it be? I would appreciate any thoughts or suggestions.

Re: Where candlesticks are from #general

Sniderlh
 

I, too, was enthralled by Ann Rabinowitz's candlestick article.  I would like to know how to contact her for more information, but haven't figured out how to "find" her on JewishGen.  Any ideas; Ann, are you reading any of this?!

My cousin and I, come to find out, each inherited a pair of silver candlesticks. Our grandfathers were brothers. I was struck by how similar they are, and wondered if, perhaps, they were wedding gifts to each son/wife. The father of my cousin's and my grandfather was born in Brody, Poland (now Ukraine), as was my cousin's grandfather. My grandfather was born in, Czernowitz ( now Chernivitsi, Ukraine).  Ultimately, both families ended up in Vienna for many years, before death (for some) in the Holocaust, and life in new lands, for others.

Here are the candlesticks (we each have a pair); there are no markings I can find, either on the bottom, or elsewhere. Look familiar to anyone? They are very light weight --- hollow, but quite similar in design.

What an incredible find, and amazing story. To see this bible reunited with the current generation of family makes you believe in fate/good karma/a huge stroke of luck.  It's uplifting to hear all the steps so many people went through to make this happen.

Thank you for sharing this.

Julius Muller at jmuller@... was very helpful to me several years ago in locating graves of my ancestors in the Zentalfriedhof cemetery and other Vienna records about them. I haven’t been in touch with him for several years, but perhaps he is still doing this research.

Finding information on ancestors in Liozna #belarus

Trying to research Gurevitch/Gurevicz (Horowitz in the US) family from Liozna, Russia (now Belarus.) I believe there were three brothers and two sisters. I have some information on the three brothers' arrival in the US, but need help finding out about the two sisters who never emigrated. Thanks!

Re: Litvak SIG Discussion Group #lithuania

JoAnne Goldberg
 

I still receive the litvak SIG emails, but "daily digest" might be the
problem -- there are so few emails that it would take months to compile
a digest's worth, and the system may not be able to handle that. I've
observed a similar situation with other groups that I subscribe to --
when the posts are rare, I just don't get a digest, ever.
