Sally,
This is the upcoming replacement for the JewishGen Discussion Groups. It has nothing to do with Facebook.

Hello all,
As can be seen here:
https://www.yadvashem.org/yv/he/research/ghettos_encyclopedia/ghetto_details.asp?cid=635
(alternate link: https://tinyurl.com/yywtv2vr )
(the page is in Hebrew), there were two censuses in Oradea: on 1941 and on 1944.
Does anyone know if these censuses data can be accessed online or otherwise?
If so, how and where?

Thanks.

Looking through social networks I came across a comment posted by a Judith Meyers
Sage stating that she may be a descendant of Rabbi David of Novarodok (author of
"Galia Mesechet"). I couldn't make when the post was written or where does Judith
live.

As I am researching a possible descendancy >from Rabbi David's father, Moshe, if
Judith or anyone who knows her can contact me to discuss the above further.

I'll be very happy if any other members of this forum who are
descendants of the above R' David contact me.

JewishGen Discussion Group #JewishGen Improved Gesher Galicia Inventories and Przemysl Archives Restructures #jewishgen

Gesher Galicia SIG
 

Gesher Galicia has significantly updated the contents as well as the
descriptions of its online inventories >from three important archives,
or sets of archives, with Jewish Galician records: AGAD in Warsaw, the
Przemysl state archive, and the three western Ukrainian state archives.

- AGAD (Central Archives of Historical Records)
There are two fonds of Jewish records at AGAD.
a) Fond 300 consists of bound volumes of vital records. Books are transferred
annually >from the Civil Registration Office (USC) in Praga district, Warsaw, once
they are so eligible under the law relating to civil registration offices. The
transfer for 2019 (with birth registers to 1919 and marriage and death registers to
1939) is now expected in September or October.

Fond 300 currently holds 4,101 Jewish vital record books - as well as indexes of
vital records books and censuses - >from 109 localities, all but four of them in the
eastern part of the former Galicia. USC Warsaw still holds around 700 Jewish
Galician vital record books.

AGAD has in recent months scanned the 30 books it received >from USC in late 2018,
as well as almost 200 other record books in Fond 300 that had always been at AGAD
but which hadn't yet been digitized. Over 98% of the books in Fond 300 have now
been digitized, with the links added to AGAD's online inventory of the fond.

Gesher Galicia has significantly improved and updated its description of Fond 300.
All the current 4,101 books are now listed in our own inventory of the fond, and
links are provided to all the available sets of scans. The revised description of
AGAD's Jewish records is at: https://www.geshergalicia.org/agad/
and the Fond 300 inventory is at: https://www.geshergalicia.org/agad_fond_300/

b) Fond 424
AGAD has a second set of Jewish records, Fond 424, currently with 207 files. Many
of these are also vital records, but in loose form (such as certificates and
certifications of vital events). There are also community records and marriage
banns records. Most of the towns with records in Fond 424 are >from the eastern part
of former Galicia, with a few >from western Galicia. There are also a handful of
towns now in Ukraine that were never in Galicia.

Gesher Galicia has scanned those files in Fond 424 with useful genealogical
information, and is making them available in the members-only area of our website.
Many of these scanned files have also been indexed by Gesher Galicia. The inventory
of Fond 424 can be viewed at: https://www.geshergalicia.org/inventories/fond-424/

- Ukrainian state archives
The specifically Jewish archival material >from the former Galicia held in Ukrainian
state archives are is to be found in three archives in western Ukraine (the area of
the eastern part of the former Galicia): the Central State Historical Archives of
Ukraine in Lviv (TsDIAL), the State Archive of Ivano-Frankivsk Oblast (DAIFO), and
the State Archive of Ternopil Oblast (DATO).

Most of the bound volumes of vital records and censuses, including index books, and
loose vital records are held at TsDIAL in Lviv, in their Fond 701, Series 1. A
number of vital record books are held at DAIFO, and one set of Tarnopol Jewish
marriage records >from the mid-19th century, as well as the 1910 Jewish census of
Tarnopol, are to be found at DATO.

There are 64 towns with Jewish Galician vital records in the Ukrainian archives,
all but three >from the eastern part of the former Galicia. The records >from many
of these towns have been indexed and put online now. Gesher Galicia's description
of Jewish records in the Ukrainian archives is at:
https://www.geshergalicia.org/ukrainian-archives/
and the inventory is at: https://www.geshergalicia.org/inventories/ukraine/

- Przemysl state archive
The Przemysl State Archive is an important one for Galician genealogical research,
containing as it does a large number of files with Jewish vital records and
community records, >from both eastern and western Galicia. It is also the only
state archive in southern Poland with a significant quantity of Jewish records from
eastern Galician towns.

Over the past two years, the Jewish material in the Przemysl archive has been
subject to significant restructuring. Files have been moved between existing fonds,
and much new material that researchers were not previously aware of has been
introduced.

The largest fond of Jewish Galician records in Przemysl is Fond 154,with 70
first-level files, in which there are 1,039 units, or subfiles. The first 68 files
are town-specific, each one for a separate Galician town. File 50, for instance,
contains 28 subfiles >from Stanislawow, including material >from the Stanislawow
ghetto. The subfiles are of different types vital record books or index books,
sets of loose certificates, lists of residents, and Jewish community documents.

There is a surprise when we come to Fond 154, File 69. This consists of 573
volumes, all of which are >from unknown towns. Nearly all them are index books of
vital records. We will have more to say later about this set of books, previously
largely unknown to researchers.

Fond 395 contains material >from schools >from nine towns, the largest collection
being >from the Jewish school in Przemysl itself. There are 20 other fonds of Jewish
records, all town-specific, >from the towns of: Dobromil, Jaroslaw, Jaworow,
Kanczuga, Mikulince, Mosty Wielkie, Oleszyce, Olpiny, Pomorzany, Pruchnik,
Przemysl, Radymno, Sieniawa, Skalat, Skole, Stryj, Tarnopol, Wielkie Oczy, Zbaraz,
and Zloczow. These town fonds existed previously, but new material has been added
to some of them, and notably to the fond for Tarnopol, which now contains 328
files.

The description of records in Przemysl and their inventory is at:
https://www.geshergalicia.org/przemysl-archive/

We have introduced a new style for the display of the inventories mentioned above.
The online inventories can now be sorted as a viewer wishes - by town name, fond
and file numbers, or in other ways. Our online inventories >from other archives -
those in Bochnia, Nowy Sacz, Rzeszow, Sanok, and Tarnow - are for the moment
unchanged. Over the coming months, we will update these inventories too in the new
style, adding, where required, new material or new links to scans.

Austria-Czech SIG #Austria-Czech NEW RECORDS ON THE ALL GALICIA DATABASE AND PROGRESS REPORT #Austria-Czech

Gesher Galicia SIG
 

New vital records and Jewish taxpayer records are now available for
all to search on the All Galicia Database:
https://search.geshergalicia.org

Vital records

Tarnopol is the most recent town whose Jewish vital records and
censuses held in western Ukrainian archives have been completely
indexed and uploaded to the All Galicia Database. The first records
indexed >from Tarnopol were the set of death records >from the Holocaust
period, July 1941- September 1942, which were worked on in 2011 by an
independent indexing group. The last records, the transcriptions
mentioned above of two index books of births, >from 1924 and 1927, were
uploaded on July 21, 2019.

The Vital Records project in 2018-2019
In the 12-month period July 2018-July 2019, Gesher Galicia has indexed
about 33,000 vital records, >from 17 towns: Klasno-Podgorze
(Wieliczka), Lwow, Mielnica, Mikulince, Mosciska, Nowy Wisnicz,
Podwoloczyska, Radziechow, Rzeszow, Sambor, Sokolow Malopolski,
Stanislawow, Szczurowa, Tarnopol, Zbaraz, and Zborow. For the rest of
the 2019 Vital Records project, we have records to index from:
Kroscienko, Mikulince, Mosciska, Nowy Targ, Podhajce, Stanislawow, and
Tartakow.

Vital records coming soon:
- Stanislawow. Jewish deaths, 1845-1863 and 1927-1931
- Podhajce. Jewish births, 1854-1881, 1884, 1886-1889.


Jewish taxpayers project
- Tarnopol (Ternopil). Jewish taxpayers, 1936 (1,054 records).
We have now completed indexing six of the 10 Tarnopol-region Jewish
taxpayer files >from 1930s projected for this year=E2=80=99s project, of whi=
ch
the one for the town of Tarnopol was by far the largest set. Close to
4,500 taxpayer records have been uploaded to the database in 2019. The
remaining four files, >from Skala, Trembowla, Zbaraz, and Zloczow,
should follow soon - and possibly more.

Thanks as always to Mark Jacobson and Eddy Mitelsbach for their
continuing work on the Taxpayers project.

Re: Trial #Poland

Yefim Kogan
 

Rose,  yes, if we are talking about Israelis, most can communicate in English,  but if you want to bring Jews from Eastern Europe, South America, that might be a problem.  Not all will be able to understand and write in English.

A good system should give you a choice to translate if not English...

Just some thoughts. It sometimes takes me a while to see certain applications and connections.  If attachments are blocked, then those of us who also post on facebook, and other social media will have to work twice as hard. Just like the situation where the IAJGS conf Facebook page doesn't let you share to your Facebook page. So if you want to put something up for the conference, you have to copy and paste and then sometimes edit. The same with Jan Meisel Allen's notices when we feel they are relevant to our followers. IGRA uses a variety of social media to announce both activities and database releases.  We end up being a slave to social media in order for people to know we are out there.  
Yefim asked about languages. The problem with putting something in any language besides English isn't the problem of translation but that some people won't realize it is relevant to them. We have to realize the great majority of people using this JG discussion list are native English speakers and probably on the North American continent, and if non-English speakers want to ask or reply they have to do it in English. I run into the opposite. If I share an announcement in Hebrew (doesn't matter from where, and we are in Israel where Hebrew is the official language) on our facebook page, sometimes a non-Hebrew speaker asks what is written. Well, it is a problem, because we don't have the time and energy to translate other organizations' posters. And to make some of our announcements bi-lingual is very time-consuming because the best way to handle it is a pdf file. So Yeffim, thought the system handles languages, I am not sure it is wise to write in any other language but English.

Every EML I've subscribed to has prevented attachments. One great feature about JewishGen is ViewMate. I know the recommendation has been to upload our file onto ViewMate and then ask the EML for help with it, but there hasn't been one time I've had to go that far. People have been very quick to respond directly to my request for help on ViewMate.

Rabbinic Genealogy SIG #Rabbinic R' Yisrael Nachman ben Yosef-of Ostrow #Rabbinic

Yonatan Ben-Ari
 

In Biber's book "Mazkeret Legedolei Ostrow" there appear two R'
Yisrael ben Yosef of Ostrow who lived some 200 years ago. Both came to
Tzfat during the 19th century. He suggests that they are one andthe
same though in one place the name appears Yisrael Nachman and the
other without the Nachman. In one place the (family?) name appear
"DERHARBISHER".

As I am a descendant of them (or his) I would like to correspond with
anyone else who is a descendant of his to discuss our family tree.

TIA

follower of R' Yehoshua HESCHEL of Apta. He came to Eretz Yisrael
during the 1830s (to Zfat and/or Tveria)

JewishGen Discussion Group #JewishGen Offering Photos / Research at Montefiore Cemetery, Springfield Gardens, New York #jewishgen

I am putting Montefiore Cemetery on the list of cemeteries I will visit. For the
moment I am going to say Old Montefiore in Springfield Gardens, Queens, NY. (I
might also do New Montefiore on Long Island at some point as well.)

I am happy to look for graves and take photos provided you can ID the appropriate
person. Montefiore has a database online where you can start with your research.

I am pretty good at finding my way around in Montefiore and it is very accssible
with a few minor exceptions.

Infants, babies and children are the most difficult because a lot of times they did
not have as significant stones and they do not survive the years. If you sre asking
me to look for a child's grave please identify it as such because it changes my
strategy in the plot.

Please be specific in your requests because I can not help you if you write with a
common name and say can you find it without the details.

I do appreciate but do not demand a few dollars in return to help off set the cost
of doing these search for everyone and to make it possible for me to continue to
offer this as a service to the community. As you can understand the costs of
these repeated searches add up on me.

I am also happy to offer advice online if you email me.
