Scott Olitsky
 

I am looking for any information about what appears to be the small
town of Ozerna which is about 5 miles south of Belaya Tserkov (50
miles SW of Kiev). All I can find is informaiton about the much
larger city of the same name in western Ukraine near L'viv. Does
anyone know anything about this small town near Belaya Tserkov?

Thanks

From Romania to departure ports #romania

cmw521@...
 

Don't assume they took a train. Most walked or took a wagon. Stories of
the fusgeyers abound. These were people who walked >from all over Romania to
various ports as far away as Hamburg, Bremen, Antwerp and Calais to flee to
America. For a good read on the phenomena, read Stewart Tower's "The
Wayfarers". Fusgeyers, literally "foot goers" walked upwards of 800 miles
(1200 km) to get out of Romania in the early years of the 20th century.
Many Jews in Romania were desperately poor. A train ticket was as exotic to
them as a ride on the International Space Station would be to us. As they
walked, they did anything and everything they could to raise a little money
for the voyage. They were helped to the extent possible, by the Jewish
communities they passed through along the way. Various Jewish philanthropic
organizations raised cash to help them buy a ticket to America, South
America, and other locations, including Palestine.

Does any one have details of the train route before the year 1910, that the
Jewish families took >from Iasi in Romania to Hamburg in Germany on their way
to England and America.

Did they have to change stations in the big cities on route ?

I know that they received aid >from the local Jewish Communities on route.

Re: Lists of Jewish Romanian soldiers in WWI #romania

Dear All,

Several of you have written to tell me that you have seen the book
mentioned by Prof. Gyemant, but did not find your family member listed.
I will be writing to ask him for more information on other sources in
Romania.

However, I have also ILL'd(Interlibrary Loan) the book, and will look at the lists in it,
to see if it might be possible to create a ROM-SIG database >from it. I
would, of course, have to obtain permission >from the publisher,
HaSefer. They have been very cooperative and kind in the past, so
perhaps we can be hopeful. It will be a start.

Best,
Rosanne Leeson

JewishGen Hungarian Database Update - Miskolc & Gary_Deutsch #hungary

samara99@...
 

We are pleased to announce an update to the JewishGen Hungarian Database.
We have added approximately 14,000 new birth, marriage and death records.

What is more significant is that this update completes the transcription
of all Miskolc vital records available >from the Hungarian National archives
and filmed by the Family History Library of the Mormons.

There are now approximately 36,000 birth, marriage and death records for
Miskolc in the database.

This is due primarily to the efforts and tremendous persistence of Gary
Deutsch, who has worked on these records over a period of five or more
years. Gary has both led a team of volunteers to accomplish this
undertaking, while also transcribing the majority of these records himself.

The volunteers assisting Gary with the most recent records are András
Hirschler, Moshe Lorber and Zvika Oren. A number of other volunteers
assisted with the previous records, already in the database.

We are all grateful to Gary and his team for this major accomplishment.
This is a tremendous contribution to Hungarian-Jewish genealogy.

There are now over 280,000 vital records and over 800,000 total records
in the JewishGen Hungarian Database.

Belarus State Archives/Searching: CHOROVSKI from Kobryn #belarus

My experience with Belarus State Archives

For two months I'm looking for the birth certificate of my father-in-law,
Aron CHOROVSKI, who was born in Kobryn, now Belarus, in 1908.

I send an E-mail to the archives of the town of Kobryn, they told me
that I should direct my search to National Historical Archives of
Belarus in Grodno.

Sent a mail to National Historical Archives of Belarus in Grodno, and
they told me was to run my search to the National Historical Archives
of Belarus at Minsk.

Send a mail to to the National Historical Archives of Belarus at
Minsk, and they told me that I should direct my search to the National
Historical Archives of Belarus in Grodno.

This is the story of the mouse that bites its own tail!
I'm walking in a circle!

Can anyone help me in my search of the family CHOROVSKI / HOROWSKI
of Kobryn?

Where can I find Kobryn BMD records, for the years 1890-1919 ?

Any ideas?

Thanks,

Re: Strategies for viewing and translating microfilm #general

Pamela Weisberger <pweisberger@...>
 

Further to Schelly Dardashti's excellent suggestions for deciphering
Cyrillic on Jewish microfilm records - anyone attending the IAJGS
conference in Los Angeles in July should know that we will have a
collection of many Jewish LDS microfilms (on loan >from the local
LA Regional Family History Center) available in our resource room -
some of which are in Cyrillic, including many Polish microfilms
previously indexed by JRI-Poland.

We will also have volunteer Russian and Ukrainian-speaking translators
available to assist you in deciphering these films.

The "office hours" of these translators will be posted shortly before
the conference opens and you will be able to sign up for translation
appointments at that time.

A list of these microfilms will also be posted on the conference website
in a few weeks and we will announce the link on this listserv once it's
live. The room will be equipped with microfilm readers and a printer/copier
and flash-drive compatible machines. Ancestry.com will also have a
document-scanning room at the conference, free of charge to all attendees,
to scan paper copies of vital records, books, and other documents you find
or bring with you to the conference and will provide a free flash drive to
anyone participating in the scanning.
