Dear fellow researchers:

The response to our post about future cooperation between the Polish State
Archives and Jewish Records Indexing - Poland has been overwhelming.

While we anticipated an air of excitement over this update, we could hardly
have expected what JRI-Poland Treasurer Sheila Salo has called the
"blizzard" of donations and, I should add, the many private congratulatory
messages.

Thanks to the generosity by JRI-Poland researchers, it will be possible for
us to make an early start on the indexing of records for a number of towns
in Poland and former Galician towns now in the Ukraine.

Finally, I would like to add a personal note. While I signed the
announcements that appeared on the JRI-Poland, JewishGen and Gesher Galicia
lists, the success of JRI-Poland must be attributed to the dedication and
competence of those with whom I am honored to share leadership - executive
committee members Judy Baston, Mark Halpern, and Michael Tobias, and the
entire JRI-Poland board.

All of the board members wear other hats and have various responsibilities
in helping JRI-Poland reach its goals. I would like to mention these
others, Jeffrey Cymbler, Howard Fink, Alan Greenberg, Peter Jassem, Roni
Liebowitz, Hadassah Lipsius, Robinn Magid, Wlodzimierz Rozenbaum, Sheila
Salo, Susan Stone and Daniel Wagner.

And, I might add, thanks must also go to the both the Archive Coordinators
and Town Leaders who tirelessly fundraise for the indexing of their towns'
records and share their knowledge about their town with their fellow
researchers.

Hi Siggers,
I got this link >from the Hungarian family-tree researching list:

This list was made about those people who were deported >from Budapest in 1951 by the communists, among them a lot of wealthy Jewish people.

from this month I became the leader of the Library of Jewish University in Budapest.
I hope I'll be able to help you in the next years.

Follow Up regarding a Previous Query #hungary

Alex Magocsi
 

A few days ago, Tom Klein of Toronto responded to my query titled "Sise is the nickname for�"

Tom wrote:
"where is toelcsik? i couldn't find it in the gazetteer or with google(!).

and what kind of record did you find it in? could it be a typo, or is it a transliteration >from another language?
(i.e. is it hungarian, or german, or transliterated yiddish/hebrew?)

have you tried looking in the jewishgen given names database?
(which seems to suffer >from a bit of "split personality" between the uses of "s", "sh", and "sz", among other things.)"


Since she was the source of the document that I was using, Beth Long of Budapest responded off line to Tom.
I thought it might be of interest, and useful, to others if I quoted Beth's response to the list, of course with her permission.
Beth wrote:
"This place is actually TÃœltszÊk (Hungarian) or TulÄ?ík (Slovakian). It is in the former Saros County.

The name was taken >from an 1860 Jewish birth record.
Since it was a Hungarian-speaking area, I assume it would have been pronounced "Shee-sheh"

I initially suggested to Alex that it might be "Shimshon".
Another person came up with the idea of "Ziskind" (which they mentioned was frequently associated with the name Alexander).

I agree that when people post, it is good to briefly outline the source of the information (since it makes a big difference
whether it came >from an original record, a personal letter, oral recollection, or whatever)."

Alex

IGRA's new Search Engine #general

Garri Regev
 

We have released our new search engine for the AID (All Israel Databases) section
www.genealogy.org.il/AID/ . In July, at the IAJGS International Conference in
Paris, IGRA was awarded the Stern Grant with the intent that these monies to be
used to develop a bi-lingual search engine to improve our website. We contracted
with Brooke Schreier Ganz and worked closely with her to build what we hope will
be a much improved search experience. Rose Feldman, Carol Hoffman, Daniel
Horowitz, Garri Regev and Philip Trauring have each given >from their special fields
to make this possible. We believe we bring you now a balanced assortment of
databases >from the Ottoman, British and Israeli Administrations, relating to
communities >from the north to the south, and in many different fields. Some of the
databases are in English but most are in Hebrew, with a few additional languages
as well. Each database is presented in the language of the material found. The
search engine, however, is able to understand both English and Hebrew and will
bring you matches in both languages even if you only entered the name in one
language.

There is a virtual keyboard if you do not have a Hebrew keyboard and want to use
one.

You will notice that in addition to entering the names you are searching there are
possible filters on the right side of the page to help you fine tune your search.
Try them out!! Adding more or taking them away is quite simple. Our databases and
search engine page is available to all registered users of our website (free).
Please be sure to log in. You will be alerted if you do not have permission to
access information. Due to restrictions >from the various archives we have had to
layer the accessibility of our databases. There are databases available to
everyone. Some of our databases allow you to search but not to see all of the
details. Other databases are only for paid IGRA members. The same is true for the
images of the databases. Almost all of the images have been added and more will
be added in the coming days.

Internal Passport Records for Siauliai District #general

Howard Margol
 

<<From: Marlene Finkelstein m51marlene@...
A major portion of the Internal Passport records for the town that I am
researching, Kurseniai in Siauliai District, only contain the name of the
individual, the date, the passport number, and the location of the record in the
archives. Has all the information available on the actual record been included in
the database or is it advisable that I request a copy of the record >from the
archive? It is unclear to me if an actual file exists for each individual if this
is not so indicated on the database.>>

So far, 15,592 Siauliai District Internal Passport records have been translated.
Most, but not all, include individual files that contain additional documents.
Some entries in the database include, List Only. This indicates that all of the
available information has been translated. Requesting copies >from the archive is
the only way to be sure if they exist or not.

To see a description of Internal Passports, copies of documents, and the address of
the archive, go to
