Train travel Lodz-Vilne 1920 #general

Paula Eisenstein Baker
 

Can someone suggest a source of information about train travel between Lodz and
Vilna around 1920? I'd like to get a sense of how long the trip took (I'm
assuming it was an all-day affair) and whether that was a direct route or
involved a change of train.

None of the combinations of words I Googled provided that kind of info. Old
schedules for the rail lines would be the best source, but I don't know where
to look for them.

Many thanks.

Friends will be traveling to England this summer and will be visiting
Leeds, the town that their grandparents lived in for about 20 years,
prior to 1909 when they came to America.
Their surname was WISOTSKY (or similar spellings).
They are hoping to see where they lived and to possibly connect with
living relatives that might still be residing in England. Any help would
be greatly appreciated.
Thank you,
Roberta Solit

Yizkor Book Project, June 2016 #austria-czech

Lance Ackerfeld <lance.ackerfeld@...>
 

Shalom,

So what can I tell you about the Yizkor Book Project in June? For a start,
there were quite a few new books and entries added over the past month,
which is always great to see. The past month saw, as usual, updates to many
of our existing projects and many of these are getting that much closer to
completion. Hopefully, I'll be able inform you about finalized projects in
the very near future.

Last month I let you know about the necrology database, which is ably led by
Max Heffler, and I am pleased to inform you that around 5,000 new entries
were added to this database over June. This particular database is an
important research tool for finding information about families and
individuals killed in the Holocaust. Yet another piece of the puzzle to help
us learn about our past. For more information, please see:

http://www.jewishgen.org/databases/yizkor/

In my last report I noted the YBMNI (Yizkor Book Main Names Index) and this
too, continues to plough ahead and more entries will be added soon. We are
still in need of volunteers to help us move this project along and if you
would like to help out, have some free time and are proficient with Excel,
I'd like to hear >from you.

Apart >from volunteering, another important way of supporting the work we do,
is by donating to any of our Translation Funds. We have set up these funds
to facilitate the translation of the Yizkor Books by professional
translators and your donation will certainly help to make this happen and
for those of you who are US citizens, donations to the funds are tax exempt.
Please see the link at the end of this report for the JewishGen-erosity page
with details of the various funds.

Hello,

My name is Hazel Boon and this is my first time posting on this
mailing list. I am trying to help someone >from my Synagogue find
information about two family lines. I should add that my family is
from Galicia (now Ukraine) and Poland so I have no experience with
research in the Czech Republic. Hopefully someone here will be able to
point me in the right direction.


Carl SCHWARZ and his wife Amelia were born in Slany. My guess is that
they were born abt 1880. They had 7 children all born in Slany. Carl,
Amelia and most of the children were murdered in the holocaust. At
least one of the children survived. He was Frank SCHWARZ b.Nov 16,
1903. Frank married Anna POPPER b.July 26, 1913.

Anna's parents were Rudolf and Berta POPPER born in
Pilsen as was Anna.and her sister Blanche. Anna and Carl had a
daughter, Eva, born in Prague November 11, 1938. The family was able
to escape to Canada in 1939.

What information am I likely to find and where would I find it. Eva's
daughter is taking our synagogue's tour to Poland, Prague & Budapest
this fall and hopes to get some information about her family prior to
the trip.

Thank you in advance for all help and guidance.

http://www.ojm.at/blog/juedischer-friedhof-triest/personenregister/

"A benefactor to all who fell down, he lifted them up" (Dr. Sigismond
Spierer, 1925) A follow-up regarding the Jewish cemetery of Trieste: Another
187 graves have been put online (altogether there are 349 now), 791
individual names are indexed! Again one finds prominent names such as the
famous liquor dynasty Stock or Luzzatto, Morpurgo and Minerbi and several
families >from Vienna, Hohenems and Burgenland (such as Gerstl, Brunner or
Ascoli), there is the headstone of Trieste's long-time chief rabbi Dr. Paolo
Nissim, a headstone >from Trieste's old Jewish cemetery from
1836 and many beautiful and touching grave inscriptions in Hebrew which have
all been translated - and also many Triestine Jews which fell victim to the
Nazi terror.

New additions to the All Galicia Database #austria-czech

tkahane@...
 

Gesher Galicia is pleased to announce the addition of a further 6,680
vital records, as well as a new set of landowner records, on the All
Galicia Database. This database is free and available to all. See:
http://search.geshergalicia.org

a) Stary Sambor (Stare Miasto). Births 1856-1876. Central State
Historical Archives of Ukraine, Lviv (TsDIAL), Fond 701/01/310. (980
records).

b) Kudrynce. Deaths 1853-1876. Central State Historical Archives of
Ukraine, Lviv (TsDIAL), Fond 701/01/96. (242 records).

c) Lwow. Central State Historical Archives of Ukraine, Lviv (TsDIAL)
- Fond 701/01/122 and 128. Births 1838-1849 (1,912 records)
- Births 1814-1834 (>from LDS microfilm 905274) (1,703 records)
- Fond 701/01/140. Deaths 1872

d) Mikulince. Two books of records >from the Central State Historical
Archives of Ukraine, Lviv (TsDIAL), which had been indexed some years
ago, have been revised, the first of them significantly.
- Fond 701/01/160. This book claims to be a death index book in the
archives=E2=80=99 inventory. However, after a Gesher Galicia member alerted
us, we examined it and found it to be a hybrid. It was originally used
as a birth index book (and its printed headings are indeed intended
for birth indexes) for the years 1858 and 1859. Later, the 1858 and
1859 birth indexes were crossed out, and the same book was used as a
death index book, for records >from 1835-1857. The contents are
therefore:
Birth index book 1858, 1859 (119 records), and
Death index book 1835-1857 (954 records).

- Fond 701/01/162 and 163. This book contains Deaths 1877 and 1855
(418 records). There have not been many changes to the actual contents
of this dataset, but rather to its title and description.


In addition, we have uploaded a book of landowner records:
e) Hlibow. Landowners 1828. Central State Historical Archives of
Ukraine, Lviv (TsDIAL), Fond 186/01/7472. (227 records)


We are grateful to a number of people who have kindly worked on some
of these indexes, including: Eric Bloch and his indexing team, Marcia
Feinberg, Emily Garber, Piotr Gumola, Mark Jacobson, Jeff Kaiser and
Russ Maurer.

1903. Frank married Anna POPPER b.July 26, 1913.

Anna's parents were Rudolf and Berta POPPER born in
Pilsen as was Anna.and her sister Blanche. Anna and Carl had a
daughter, Eva, born in Prague November 11, 1938. The family was able
to escape to Canada in 1939.

What information am I likely to find and where would I find it. Eva's
daughter is taking our synagogue's tour to Poland, Prague & Budapest
this fall and hopes to get some information about her family prior to
the trip.

Thank you in advance for all help and guidance.
