Researching: Lieberman, Kleinhandler and Raysman from Chmielnik #general

Penny k
 

After years of researching Chmielnik, Poland, the town in which my paternal
grandparents (Rose Kleinhandler Lieberman and Max (Meier) Lieberman lived before
coming to the US in the late 1800s and early 1900s. I came across many pictures
posted online of the Kleinhandler family >from Chmielnik donated by Kleinhandler
family members to Yad Vashem and the US Holocaust Museum. I understand that the
Kleinhandler family was a large family in Chmielnik and my paternal grandmother and
her father may have been the only one or two of the few members of the Kleinhandler
family to travel to the US (settling in NYC) in the early 1900s, while the rest of
the large family remained in Chmielnik. I contacted the US Holocaust Museum to
inquire about the donors of those pictures, but have not yet received any response.
Based on family resemblances I see in the online photos and anecdotal information
from some relatives. I assume my family is related to the donors of the
Kleinhandler photos.

If you have any information about the Kleinhandlers >from Chmielnik, I am interested
in hearing >from you.

Gesher Galicia at the IAJGS Conference 2011 #galicia

Pamela Weisberger
 

Calling All Galitzianers!

(Or anyone interested in cartography, unusual genealogical
resources, travel to Krakow, museums and more....)

Gesher Galicia, the SIG for people with Jewish roots in this former
Austrian province, is offering a slate of programs at the IAJGS
Conference on Monday, August 15, including our annual GG
luncheon where Jakub Nowakowski, director of the Galicia Jewish
Museum in Krakow, and I, will present:

12:30PM - 2:00PM
"A Tour of Jewish Krakow: Past, Present & Future"

Jews have lived in Krakow, one of the largest centers in
Poland/Galicia, since the 12th century and their history is a long
and complicated one. Today Kazimierz -- the heart of Jewish
Krakow -- is a thriving district of cultural festivals, museums,
synagogues, antique shops, restaurants and bars. There a
noticeable resurgence of Jewish culture and -- more importantly
-- Jewish population. Join us for a virtual tour of this reborn and
re-imagined Krakow, >from the first days of Jewish settlement,
through the unimaginable years of WWII, to this present-day
tourist destination with its new JCC and a Disneyland-like
"Schindler Factory Museum," and into a future of what will become
an authentically Jewish Krakow.

Luncheon tickets are still available for purchase and can be added
on to your registration by logging in to your account. You can
only attend the luncheon if you purchase a ticket, which is $42.

Throughout the day (Monday) there will be many other
Galician-focused programs:

9:30AM - 10:45AM
"The Galicia Jewish Museum: History & Virtual Tour"

The Galicia Jewish Museum exists to commemorate the Jewish
Heritage of Galicia. The main exhibition features photographs by
the late Chris Schwarz and texts by Prof. Jonathan Webber
(UNESCO Chair of Jewish and Interfaith Studies, University of
Birmingham, UK). Over a period of twelve years, they worked
together to gather material that offers a completely new way of
looking at the Jewish past that was destroyed in Poland. The
exhibition pieces together a picture of the relics of Jewish life and
culture in Polish Galicia that can still be seen today, interpreting
these traces in a manner which is informative, accessible, and
thought-provoking. The exhibition is divided into five sections,
corresponding to the different ways in which the subject can be
approached. Speaker: Jakub Nowakowski.

11:00AM - 12:15PM
Gesher Galicia SIG Meeting

Take a tour of the brand new "All Galicia Database," which has
over 170,000 new genealogical records, and get an update on
town and region research groups, our expanding map, landowner
record and voter record projects and meet filmmakers, Olha
Onyshko and Sarah Farhat who will be screening "Three Stories of
Galicia" at the conference film festival. Alex Feller will offer a
presentation about his recent trip to Lviv and Rohatyn, Ukraine and
Mark Halpern will offer a JRI-Poland Galician records status report.

2:15PM - 3:30PM
"Galician Cadastral Maps, Landowner & Voter Records"

Galician (today Polish and Ukrainian) cadastral land records,
property maps and voter records are valuable sources of historical
information, especially when vital records are missing. The 19th
and 20th century maps show exact locations of synagogues,
cemeteries, schools, and market squares and often have the
names of the landowners written onto the plots. House numbers
can be used to chart a family across several generations and land
records provide inheritance patterns. Early 20th century voter
records provide names, ages and town of birth for men and
women, and often are the only evidence of a family living in a
particular locale. Discover the relevance of these unusual
resources, with instructions on how to obtain these records online
or >from overseas archives. Speaker: Pamela Weisberger.

And don't forget to stop by the Gesher Galicia section at the SIG
Fair on Sunday afternoon. We will have tables with research
information covering the span of Polish and Ukrainian Galicia, and
Mr. Nowakowski will be there to answer questions about the
Galicia Jewish Museum.

If you cannot attend the conference, or certain events, some of
these presentations may be taped and available for purchse after
the conference. Check back for that information. Gesher Galicia is
a non-profit, charitable membership organization. If you are new
to conferences or to Gesher Galicia, you can find more information
here: http://www.GesherGalicia.org and here:

The entire board of Gesher Galicia looks forward to seeing you
soon in D.C.

Yizkor Books in Print #hungary

Lance Ackerfeld <lance.ackerfeld@...>
 

Shalom,

I am extremely excited to announce the "kick off" of a new Yizkor Book
Project initiative called "Yizkor Books in Print". The idea behind this
project is to make hard copies of books that have been completely translated
in the Yizkor Book Project and make these books be available for purchase by
the descendants of these communities, university and synagogue libraries and
museums.

This project could not have come into existence had it not been for Joel
Alpert who has kindly agreed to be the Project Advisor for this enterprise.
The next stage is to look for people to fill the tasks required in this
project. If you have a background in the editing and graphics fields and,
especially, if you have had previous experience in preparing books for
publishing, we'd be very pleased to hear >from you.

If you are interested in receiving further details of the people needed for
the project, please click on this link
http://www.jewishgen.org/Yizkor/ybip.html and if you feel able to assist,
contact Joel using the link appearing on this page.
