More New AGAD Galician Indices now Online #galicia

Willie46@...
 

When it rains, it pours. Over 37,000 more AGAD vital record
indices have been added to the Jewish Records Indexing -
Poland database this month
<http://www.jewishgen.org/JRI-PL/jriplweb.htm>. A big THANK
YOU to Michael Tobias, Database Manager extraordinaire, for
creating and updating the JRI-Poland database, which now
has over 1.3 million index entries including over 130,000
AGAD index entries.

These indices were created directly >from the records housed
at the AGAD Archives in Warsaw. In addition to those additions
announced last week, indices for the Galician Administrative
District towns of Podhajce (Podgaytsy), Rohatyn (Rogatin),
Gologory, Grodek Jagellonski (Gorodek), Husiatyn (Gusyatin),
Zurawno (Zhuravno), Uscie Biscupie (Ust'ye), Sokolowka
(Sokolovka), Kudrynce (Kudrintsy), and Zablotow (Zabolotov)
have now been added to the database. More information on
each town is provided below.

If your ancestral town was near one of the above towns (see
coordinates below), your town's records could have been registered
in one of these towns. The towns included in this project are all
Administrative District and Subdistrict towns. The Jewish
Community in each of these towns was required by law to collect
the vital records for all the towns that were part of the Subdistrict.
The indices for the above Administrative towns include reference
to the town in which the vital event occurred. Search the database
for your surname and set "Province" to "Ukraine." This will result
in only AGAD record indices being displayed in your search results.

The indices do not have all the genealogical relevant data. You can
order the actual record >from the AGAD Archives using the Order
Form that is only a few clicks away >from your search results.

Mosciska, Rozdol, and Strzeliska Nowe.

Although all of the above Administrative town indexing projects
have been funded and are now available to researchers, there
are many years of records that will become available in the
coming years as all the records in the register books become
over 100 years old (due to Poland's strict privacy laws, all
records 100 years old or less are not available to the public and,
therefore, are not available for indexing). In order to index these
newly available records, more contributions are needed.

You can help ensure the indexing of your Galician town's records
as they become available. Please consider a contribution to the
AGAD project. Information on contributing is available at
<http://www.jewishgen.org/jri-pl/agad/agadcontrib.htm>.

The AGAD record indices contained in the JRI-Poland database
would not be accessible to researchers without our host,
JewishGen. In addition to your contribution to the JRI-Poland
AGAD Project that supports indexing of the records, we hope
you will also give to JewishGen to help defray the cost of
maintaining these records. An easily accessible contribution
form is available at

Dear friends,

We have made great progress in translating the Yizkor Book
for Rozniatow which also includes information on the the neighboring
communities of Stryj, Dolina, Bolkhov, Kalush, and Stanislawow. You
can read what has been completed at

http://www.jewishgen.org/Yizkor/Rozniatow/Rozhnyatov.html

This translation was made possible by the financial
contributions of many people, by the hard work of the JewishGen
volunteers (including Joyce Field and Lance Ackerfeld), and by the
wonderful translations of Jerrold Landau.

However, the most recent translation segments have exhausted
our funds. Thus, if you are interested in supporting further
translation of this very interesting Yizkor Book, I hope you will
feel generous and contribute to the funds for translation. If you
wish to contribute to the book's translation over the web, please
click on JewishGen's secure fund raiser page and be sure to select
Rozhnyatov

http://www.jewishgen.org/JewishGen-erosity/YizkorTrans.ihtml

I urge you to also contribute an additional amount to JewishGen,
which provides, at no charge, all of the expensive infrastructure for
this project and all the many others that we all enjoy.

For those who feel uncomfortable using credit cards on the web, you
can always simply mail a check (or send a fax with credit card info)
payable to JewishGen, Inc. (with a note earmarking the funds for the
Rozhnyatov Yizkor Book Project) to:

Gedaliavitch and Nojovitz Name Changes #belarus

Rlberliner@...
 

I would appreciate getting thoughts as to what Americanized or French names
could be used for Gedaliavitch (any spelling) and Nojovitz (any spelling).

These are 3 brothers whose given names are Levi, Yakov and Hersh. They lived
in Apsha (Yiddish pronunciation) in Czechoslavakia. The family is still
praying that two of them survived the Holocaust and escaped to France or
Israel or Canada or America. I say two because they know one was killed, but
not which one.

Perhaps the surnames were changed. The translation of their given names could
be in another language as well.

All suggestions as to where and how to search for them will be greatly
appreciated. This information is for our Rabbi's wife. These men are her
uncles. Her mother's married surname is Stern, and this woman escaped, was
able to get to Paris and then to America during the Holocaust but has no
information about her brothers.

Many thanks in advance for your private reply.

What I would do is call Salt Lake City 1-800-346-6044 and find out if they
have been filmed and the film numbers. A friend on this list lives in SLC
and went to the library where they have WebView. This is the current film
catalog, available in the library, and updated every week. She printed off
the list and mail it to me for the 7th District. There were 48 films
available. They still are not included in the latest update at
www.familysearch.org. The library, however, willl tell you or send you the
film numbers.

Good luck!

Looking for Friedmans from Kosice Hungary area. #hungary

Nana600@...
 

Am desperately searching for Friedmans born near Kosice about 1873. 1875,
1884 and 1888. My best clue is a passport in 1925 which noted Schene as my
fathers birthplace (ABRAHAM FRIEDMAN). That could be Szin or Sena but so far
no proof. I am not new at this but have hit a brick wall. The Kosice Archive
has found my ggf and ggm, my gf and his siblings - to at least note their
existence but my father Abrahm Friedman and his siblings David, Hannah and
Ella's birth place are nowhere to be found. They all ended up living in
Cincinnati and dying here.

The next possibility is to loacate someone who knew about an Adolph, Louis
and Markus Friedman who lived in Manhattan about 1925. All three were
brothers to Jacob my grandfather who settled in Cincinnati, Ohio. One of them
had a son Isadore who married a Rose and lived in Brooklyn in 1925. The
Isadore was in some kind of manufacturing clothes business. Oy
Vey............

Any suggestions - (already went thru Ellis Island in case - supposedly they
arrived in the U.S. in 1888 >from Bremen).

PLEASE, PLEASE - any clues

research without familyname #belarus

Cooper <famcoop@...>
 

I would very much like to gather some information about my maternal
grandfather's family who lived near Kossow. I am in possession of a letter
dated 19th february 1869, written >from Kossow, Gouvernement Grodno. This
letter mentions a Simon Moses married to Malke (both died before 1869), who
had the following children: Tankel, Bebe, Isser, Abraham Baier, Selig, Hanna
Chaie and Wolff Baier. Wolff Baier left home and ended up in the Netherlands
and Indonesia. I have reason to believe that he was my great-grandfather who
married Anna Ester Judica METZ as Albert WOLFF, but I have no proof at all.
According to my grandfather, the family in Grodno didn't have a family name
and his father assumed the name Wolff when he arrived in the Netherlands,
but my grandfather never told me whether he was indeed the Wolff Baier of
the letter I possess.
The letter further mentions "the land Lhaderki (?) near Kossow",
"Maserkosotjisne"(?), Kusohina (?), Slonisno (?), Brist Litowskij as places
where Wolff Baier worked before he left for Western Europe.

Can anybody tell me if it is at all possible to obtain information about
people who didn't have a family name?

You may be in luck in connection to me. My mother's side of the family

component. Unfortunately, due to a move and storage problems, the
complete geneology is currently missplaced. >from recollection, the
frisch in question is Moritz Frisch, whose daughter Ida, married my
great grandfather (Hirschberg which later was changed to Hollo).

jewish cemetary of Balassagyarmat and found five tombstones bearing the
name Frisch. At least one of the names is one mentioned in the will (it
is a very rare name). They belong obviously to the branch of the family
that didnt leave to Bratislava (Pressburg Poszony) with my
great-grandfather Karl (Joseph) Frisch. His father Ytzhak the son of
Joseph Frisch had another four sons: Yo'etz, Moshe, Abraham and Leibale.
Another daughters name is not mentioned in the will.
I would be happy to know that there are descendants of those other

surrounding villages before the Nazi came or survived the holocaust.

the letter I possess.
The letter further mentions "the land Lhaderki (?) near Kossow",
"Maserkosotjisne"(?), Kusohina (?), Slonisno (?), Brist Litowskij as places
where Wolff Baier worked before he left for Western Europe.

Can anybody tell me if it is at all possible to obtain information about
people who didn't have a family name?

You may be in luck in connection to me. My mother's side of the family
hails >from both Poszony and Balassagyarmat, and Frisch is a definite
component. Unfortunately, due to a move and storage problems, the
complete geneology is currently missplaced. >from recollection, the
frisch in question is Moritz Frisch, whose daughter Ida, married my
great grandfather (Hirschberg which later was changed to Hollo).

Few years ago I was convinced that the my family originated from
Bratislava (Slovakia). A hint of a relative and a last will dated 1849
led me to coclusion that the FRISCH family lived in Balassagyarmat (or
the surrounding area)/ Nograd County/ Hungary. A friend visited the
jewish cemetary of Balassagyarmat and found five tombstones bearing the
name Frisch. At least one of the names is one mentioned in the will (it
is a very rare name). They belong obviously to the branch of the family
that didnt leave to Bratislava (Pressburg Poszony) with my
great-grandfather Karl (Joseph) Frisch. His father Ytzhak the son of
Joseph Frisch had another four sons: Yo'etz, Moshe, Abraham and Leibale.
Another daughters name is not mentioned in the will.
I would be happy to know that there are descendants of those other
branches of the Frisch family that maybe left Balassagyarmat and the
surrounding villages before the Nazi came or survived the holocaust.
I thank you all in advance for your help
Sincerely yours

I have been trying to find Barton Street Boston. This is an address I had
for 1905. Apparently it does not exist, so I am wondering if there were
any Barton Streets in any of the old Jewish neighbourhoods which would have
been close to Boston, and perhaps called Boston. I found a Barton Street
in Lowell Mass. Is this a part of Boston?
No, Lowell is a separate city about 40 miles north of Boston. Barton
Street was part of the "Old West End" of Boston where many poor Jews
settled in that period of time. The slums of the West End, along
with most of its streets, were cleared in the 1950s and replaced with
high-rise apartment buildings. If you look at a present-day map of
Boston, the approximate location of Barton Street is halfway between
Massachusetts General Hospital and the Science Museum.

here is no Barton St on my current Boston map, but you should also try
internet maps as well. Lowell is 30 or so miles north, an important mill
