Re: landsmanshaften archives #ukraine

Dear Peter, Alex, and other Genners,

The following link has a listing of all the landsmanshaftn in the YIVO Institute's archives: http://home.att.net/~landsmanshaft/yivo.htm. As the web page tells you, it has drawn this information >from two published guides to YIVO's holdings, including "A Guide to YIVO's Landsmanshaftn Archive" by Rosaline Schwartz and Susan Milamed. The following JewishGen article, "Accessing Landsmanshaften Records at YIVO," should help you with the next step: http://www.jewishgen.org/Belarus/accessing_yivo_records.htm.

As a final note, make sure when searching for information on landsmanshaftn or any other foreign word to try each query with alternative spellings. I've seen "landsmanshaften" (with an E), "landsmanschaftn" (with a C), "landsmanschaften" (with both), and just "landsmanshaft." Google is smart enough to search on the inflected and differently spelled forms of English words, but I don't think they're that advanced with other languages, and not all search engines work the same way as Google. (This isn't addressed specifically to you, Peter or Alex, but to genealogists who are new to online research.)

Happy New Year and best of luck to everyone in their research.

Town called Vradish/Wradisch/Wradisz, Comital Neutra, Hungary #hungary

There is a town in Nyitra megye called Hradiste in the jaros of Szenicz.
There are records for all of these places
0623069 Hradisty, Nytra meg.,1828 Land Konscription
2190104 Hradiste 1869 Nyitra census
Szenicz (Senica)- VAULT 2157514 item 2
and because my great great GM was >from Brezova I found the records for many
of my family births in that film even though the 1869 census indicates their
birthplace as Hradiste.
1224824 Items 2 - 11 [BMD] Brezova pod Bradlom

The state archives in Ivanka Pri Nitra has a lot of good Jewish records.

Re: Town called Vradish/Wradisch/Wradisz - VRADISTE #hungary

Alan Kolnik <alan.kolnik@...>
 

Many thanks to all the Siggers who responded to my query. It seems
extremely likely that the town was VRADISTE, near Holic, and according to Vladimir
Bohinc, if any records >from the early-mid 1800's survive they may be in
Bratislava. A great help in trying to track the Neurath family's appearance
in Modling.

I think that you may find that this is the town now called Uherske
Hradiste in the Czech Republic. My mother, who came >from Vienna, had
relatives who came >from that town - and she always referred to it as
Ungarish Hradish (although this doesn't appear as a name on JewishGen.)
It is quite close to Vienna and Nitra.

Re: New Vitebsk website #lithuania

Judy Simon
 

Congratulations on the new Vitebsk shtetlinks website! I noticed a
small mistake in the name of Rezekne in the Districts and Towns list
which could cause confusion. It is listed as "Rechitsa" which is not
a spelling for Rezekne as far as I know; Rechitsa and Rezhitza are
different towns. The coordinates are correct, however, so I know you
are referring to Rezekne (Rezhitsa, Rossiten).

It also may be worthwhile mentioning that not all of Vitebsk gubernia
falls within the boundary of today's Belarus. Some of the towns,
including Daugavpils (Dvinsk) and Rezekne are in Latvia by today's
boundaries, and information on these towns are in the all Latvia
database.

Searching for Otto SCHIMINSKI (SCHIMANSKI SZYMANSKY) #poland

Stephanie Benjamin
 

Hello:

I am looking for any information on the musical career of my great uncle,
Otto SCHIMINSKI >from Ostrowitt, Osterode, East Prussia (Born 6 Feb abt 1905
and died between 1942-1945).

Otto SCHIMINSKI was a singer who also led a band of musicians during the
1920-30s in and around Konigsberg. I do not know the name of the band or the
names of any of the other musicians with whom Otto performed.

According to family lore, Otto was dubbed the "nightingale of Konigsberg"
German translation is "nachtigall von Konigsberg" (I don't know how reliable
this tale is).

Otto was also a talented sculptor, who was known for his wood and soap
carvings. Otto was married to Minna and had children with her. We know
nothing of his family.

I am hoping that perhaps someone may have some information that would help
us reconstruct a missing branch of our family. I am happy to receive any
information, photos or advice that might help. So far I have searched the
net relentlessly for information on Otto's musical and artistic life but to
no avail. I am most grateful for any guidance. Thank you all.
And Best wishes
