The September Issue of the Galitzianer #galicia

Gesher Galicia SIG
 

We are delighted to announce the release of the first issue of the Galitzianer
in the new year. The Galitzianer is the quarterly research journal of Gesher
Galicia. Rich in diverse content, this new issue includes the story of
a Galician Jew whose incongruous biography includes Shakespearean
scholar, acclaimed essayist, ally to Theodor Herzl, and adviser to the
Austrian president. The journal also offers a window into the early
life of esteemed Hollywood screenwriter and director Billy Wilder, who
was born in the Galician town of Sucha. And there is a stunningly
detailed account of the Holocaust in eastern Galicia by Philip
Friedman, the father of Holocaust history.

Here is the full list of articles in this issue:
  • Research Corner: Waiting for Records by Tony Kahane
  • WWI Research in the Nachrichten by Eric Feinstein
  • Philip Friedman’s Work: “The Extermination of Jews in East Galicia” by Barbara Krasner
  • Here Lies Soap: Memorial to the Jews of Zbaraz by Susan J. Gordon
  • The Education of a Galician: The Case of Leon Kellner by Prof. David Rechter
  • The Making of Billy Wilder by Prof. Noah Isenberg
  • My Ancestral Home: Then and Now by Ronald H. Drucker
  • President’s Page: Memories of a Galitzianer Shul by Steven S. Turner
The Galitzianer is a membership benefit of Gesher Galicia. To join,
visit our website at www.geshergalicia.org/membership/. Members and
nonmembers alike are invited to submit articles to the journal on
Galicia-related themes. For details, please review our submissions
policy at www.geshergalicia.org/the-galitzianer/#submissions and
contact me at submissions@....

Re: death certificate of Mahle Scwarcz, marriage certificate of Yette Scwarcz and Pinkas Kurzer #poland

Przeworsk Marriage records did not survive.

Przeworsk Death records only survived for the years 1838, 1880-1911, 1913-1914, 1921-1936
These records have been indexed by JRI-Poland but are not online

The death of Mahle (written Male in the record) was registered under Akt 26 in 1905.

death certificate of Mahle Scwarcz, marriage certificate of Yette Scwarcz and Pinkas Kurzer #poland
From: rottenberg
Date: Wed, 22 Sep 2021 10:29:27 EDT

I'm doing a genealogy search about my family. They lived at the end of 19th century 
and beginning of 20th century in Przeworsk.

Between september 1905 and november 1905 2 events took place :
  • Przeworsk, September 3rd 1905 : death of my great grandmother Malhe Schwarcz
  • Przeworsk, October or November 1905 : wedding of her daughter Yetta Schwarcz with Pincas Kurzer from Oleszyce.
I sent in this mail a copy of the marriage certificate in poor condition.


Can you tell me how I can get a copy of both certificates ?
 
I have tried unsuccessfully at Przemysl archives (https://www.szukajwarchiwach.gov.pl/)

Thank you very much for your advice.
Best regards

Boston US Synagogue Records 1886 #records

Dave Smith
 

Hello
I believe I have at last located the marriage certificate of my great grandfather & grandmother. It took place in Boston US in 1886. The reason why it could not be found before is that descendants have believed that his name was Hyman Cohen, which he later used on official documents. (His wife was Rachel Simon.)  However, I have found that the entry is indexed correctly under Rachel's name but his name was indexed as forename Joseph H. and surname hausman / hauaman. (In the UK 1911 census he later calls himself Joseph Cohen.) I suspect that this entry in the marriage index may be in part due to language difficulties as he only arrived in the US in 1884 direct from Russia (Poland). Obviously in order to follow this new lead up further I need to know what his actual name was. In the UK apart from the official copy of the marriage as registered at the General Register Office there is a Synagogue copy of the marriage authorisation. Was a similar practice operated in the US at this time? If so, I thought it may be helpful to obtain a copy of this marriage authorisation which would be written in his natural language and be a much more reliable indicator of his name. Can anyone please help me in locating such a document? On the birth certificate of his son, Julius, in 1889 he lists his name as Hyman Cohen (as he does on many later official documents) when the birth occurred at 17 Rochester, Boston which may help if there was more than one Synagogue at the time. Many thanks!

Re: Austrian Citizenship #austria-czech

oliverdmarshall@...
 

This may depend on what’s behind your question. It was certainly correct that your mother would have been considered to be a Polish citizen by birth and that she would only have become an Austrian citizen had her father naturalised. But I understand that your mother may now, under the new law allowing descendants of people who fled Austria due to Nazi persecution to claim Austrian citizenship, be considered to be de facto Austrian. If that’s something that interests you and any other descendants of your mother, you should send a query to the Consular Section of the Austrian Embassy in Washington DC.

Hello,
The place name on the document looks like SOKAYL to me. The "K" is loopy and was transcribed incorrectly, I believe.

Impossible Brick Wall Next Steps DRAY? #usa

Dorann Cafaro
 

Hi Community:
 
I have tried for years to find/confirm the maiden name (and any additional information) for my 2nd great-grandmother. 
What I know:
  • name Hannah/Anna ???
  • b Austria/Germany 6 Jun 1821
  • died in Baltimore MD 29 Dec 1885
  • buried Har Sinai Cemetery Baltimore MD (Jewish)
  • married about 1852 to Sauel Samuel Grauer b 2 May 1814 Raudnitz an der Elbe Czech Rep as 1st child/son Leon born 1853
  • NO MARRIAGE OR DEATH CERTIFICATES ANYWHERE ON FILE including no death certificates for her children as MD did not start keeping records till much later & Har Sinai said they have no records
 
What I believe but can’t document:
  • surname DRAY - this is a confirmed family surname and it is in my grandmother’s name plus I have identified all other surnames of her family
  • she may be from Alsace as the surname Dray is often found there and my father had to have french speaking governess when a child with his grandmother living in the house
  • I have looked at DNA connections without success
 
Love any ideas where to go from here.

Thank you so much, David! I would be glad to forward what digital copies that I have of sources from Canada. I can't find any from Germany as yet. I have found information on how he immigrated to Canada. What other documentation would she require do you think?

Thank you again for your offer to help. I truly appreciate the information as well.

Oh Thank you so very much! Would you happen to know if any of these publications are accessible through other national libraries or archives in the US by any chance? I would be willing to pay for the articles to access them.

Re: Russian army recruits 1880s #russia #general

If you look at the All Lithuanian Database 
Revision Lists there are many listed as conscripted and sometimes it lists parents and other family members. I have found lots of family that way.

Hope this helps .

There is a note in the Wikipedia article about conscription in Russia that only sons were not required to serve.  I didn't see anything there specifically about Jews.
