Krakow homeowners 1807/1808 with map #galicia

Logan J. Kleinwaks
 

Details about 1807/1808 Krakow homeowners, including house numbers,
and 1807/1808 Krakow maps labeled with those house numbers are now
viewable online. I have posted instructions at
http://genealogyindexer.org/forum/viewtopic.php?t=3022 for using the
source, "Plan miasta Krakowa Ignacego Enderle...," which was scanned
by the MCS University Digital Library and is viewable on their site at
http://dlibra.umcs.lublin.pl/dlibra/docmetadata?id=186. Before
following the instructions, make sure you have a .DjVu plugin
installed for your web browser (such as the one at
http://www.caminova.net/en/downloads/download.aspx?id=1), which
you will need to view the scans.

This source contains a lot of explanatory text in Polish, including a
lengthy introduction. If you are fluent and discern anything in the
text that could be relevant to the instructions, please let me know
and I will make additions or corrections. In particular, the
homeowners lists for the Stradom and Kazimierz sections of Krakow
(excluding the Judenstadt/Miasto Zydowskie) were apparently based on
a survey begun in 1797, but it is not clear to me when that survey was
completed, i.e., whether the lists date to 1797 or could be as late as
1808. Also, the redrawn 1807/1808 map made by Antoni Karczewski
in 1949 contains some street addresses, but it is not clear to me
whether those street addresses date >from 1949 (in any case, they seem
to match reasonably well with 2012 street addresses, at least in the
Jewish part of Kazimierz).

installed for your web browser (such as the one at

you will need to view the scans.

This source contains a lot of explanatory text in Polish, including a
lengthy introduction. If you are fluent and discern anything in the
text that could be relevant to the instructions, please let me know
and I will make additions or corrections. In particular, the
homeowners lists for the Stradom and Kazimierz sections of Krakow
(excluding the Judenstadt/Miasto Zydowskie) were apparently based on
a survey begun in 1797, but it is not clear to me when that survey was
completed, i.e., whether the lists date to 1797 or could be as late as
1808. Also, the redrawn 1807/1808 map made by Antoni Karczewski
in 1949 contains some street addresses, but it is not clear to me
whether those street addresses date >from 1949 (in any case, they seem
to match reasonably well with 2012 street addresses, at least in the
Jewish part of Kazimierz).

Lancut homeowners >from 1749 are listed, together with a labeled map,
on image 126 of "Miasto Lancut: z dziejow i z wlasnych wspomnien" (S.
Cetnarski; 1937), viewable on the Podkarpacka Digital Library at
http://www.pbc.rzeszow.pl/dlibra/docmetadata?id=1870. I have also
reproduced that page at http://genealogyindexer.org/Lancut1749b.gif.
Below is a transcript of the (likely) Jews. If you can link any of
these people to other sources, or provide surnames that they or their
children might have later used, or if you know the source Cetnarski
used to produce this list and map, please tell me. Thanks very much.

Reminder: Help Grow JOWBR - Next Update #hungary

bounce-2421020-772961@...
 

The next update to JewishGen's JOWBR (JewishGen's Online Worldwide Burial
Registry) Database (http://www.jewishgen.org/databases/Cemetery/) will be in
June and will include all submissions made through May 31. Per JOWBR's
requirements, submissions should include complete cemeteries or cemetery
sections, not individual family burial information.

JOWBR currently contains over 1.7 million Jewish burial records >from 65
countries. The database grows through the efforts of our donors; Jewish
Genealogical Societies, individuals, historical societies, cemetery
administrators, synagogues and Chevra Kadishas. If you are aware of
cemetery records that are not currently in our database, we would appreciate
if you could help us obtain them and help grow the database.

If you're interested in making a submission, please see "Submitting Data
to JOWBR" at http://www.jewishgen.org/databases/Cemetery/Submit.htm
If you prefer, you can also watch our online screencasts that show you
how JOWBR works and will also walk you through the completion of the
standard templates, at:
http://www.jewishgen.org/databases/Cemetery/Screencasts/

If you have any questions, please contact me at NAltman@...
Thank you in advance for your help!

Roman Catholic Diocese #hungary

Alex Magocsi
 

I am the product of a marriage between a good Catholic girl and a nice
Jewish boy. And the nice Jewish boy was a product of a marriage between
a Jewish girl >from Nyirbator and Roman Catholic boy >from Gyulaj.
So, obviously, my personal Hungarian research needs to include both
religions.

Can someone tell me to which diocese the Roman Catholic Church of
Gyulaj, Tolna Megye, belongs? I am searching for burial records.

Thank you
Alex
