Re: Uscie Biscupie - Businesses #galicia

Hi Ervin,

A good source about business or occupations is the 1929 Polish Business
Directory. You can access that >from JewishGen's databases.

There is a town index and you can put in "Uscie." While there is an error
in the resulting page of possible towns, with someone having
mis-transcribed the name of your town, it should be easy enough to
recognize. Also, the directory spells the second part of the town's name
as Biskupie.

There, you will find a small list of professions in Polish, with a French
translation of the professions italicized in parentheses. Then this is
followed by the alphabetized family names.

That is at least something of a start.

book about WWI Jewish German POW in Grodno #belarus

naomi rosenthal <naomiro999@...>
 

In the early months of WWI, my grandfather, a Jewish German poet and soldier,
was captured by the Russians near Warsaw and taken to Grodno. There, Grodno's
most prominent doctor, chief doctor at the Red Cross hospital there, tried to
save him. This brave Jewish doctor and my grandfather's fates then merged.

This story is told through original letters, translated into English, which
family and friends sent as they tried desperately to find my grandfather and
arrange for his release. There are also letters >from Grodno officials and
Grodno's Chief Rabbi Abram Gelbort. If you are interested in Grodno or
WWI history, I think you will like this book, Searching for Hugo. It is
available now on Amazon.com and Amazon Europe.

Re: Post-1869 to early 20th Century Records for Raslavice, Slovakia #hungary

Beth Long
 

Hi Todd,

I know there is an very detailed census of Slovakia for the year 1930. It is available to view at the National Archive in Bratislava. The census contains the place and date of birth of each member of the family. These are the original paper documents, and are contained in a series of boxes. A large city might take up three boxes by itself, whereas a single box might contain the records of three or four smaller towns.

I was there several years ago, and was allowed to photograph freely.

Though the year of the census is 1930, one can find elderly members who might have been born >from about 1850 onward. I found it to be a pretty good substitute in the case of missing records.

Hi,

The 1869 Census records for the then separately-counted three parts of

from Family Search and to at least sum extent on Jewish Gen, as are
records for a few years in the 1870's of Slovenske Raslavice on its own.

But I don't think I need to see those: I am interested in vital records
for the now unified Raslavice starting about 1885 or 1890 and continuing
to the latest 20th century dates which are formally available.

Did I miss something online including in the Family Search catalog? Are
these records available - if they exist - only in Slovakia (and which
one?) are other archives?

Thanks!

Gesher Galicia Spring Program in NYC: Sunday, May 18: "Austria, Poland, Ukraine!" #poland

Pamela Weisberger
 

You are invited to Gesher Galicia's spring regional meeting coming up
in New York City:

Sunday, May 18, 2014

11:00AM - 1:00PM

Center for Jewish History
Forchheimer Auditorium
15 West 16th St.
New York, NY 10011

"Austria Poland, Ukraine: 3 Countries, 5 Archives, 12 Wonderful Days
of Discovery"

In addition to updating all of our new research projects and website,
there will be a special multi-media presentation:

GG board member, John Diener, >from Ottawa, Canada and Pamela
Weisberger will talk about their trip in April 2013 which was timed
to attend the opening of the building Museum of the History of Polish
Jews in Warsaw, where they also got to dine with Piotr Pininski, great
grandson of Count Leonard Pininski, the magnate nobleman who once
owned the Galician town of Grzymalow where John's father and Pamela's
grandfather were born. They examined rare 18th century Jewish records in
the Austrian State Archives and after a short stop in Krakow, to give a
presentation at the JCC to the local population trying to discover more
about their Jewish roots, they journeyed to Przemysl and toured the Polish
State Archives. Once in Ukraine (after walking across the border!)
escorted by Alex and Natalie Dunai, they made research stops at the
Lviv and Ternopil archives, and visited Grzymalow, its ruined synagogue,
cheder and Jewish cemetery. Learn about the trip's highlights and the
challenges of archival research in foreign locales (>from white gloves
to burnt documents and moldy dust) and discover the exceptional
opportunity to connect past to present through investigative
genealogical research and shtetl travel.

Admission is free. No reservations are necessary.

Speakers:

John Diener is an Ottawa, Canada businessman who is also the
vice-president of the Jewish Genealogical Society of Ottawa, and is on
the board of directors of Gesher Galicia. John co-sponsored the
filming of all matzevot in Zhvanets, Ukraine; the data on these 1,200
stones was submitted to JOWBR and he has amassed 2,500 names on his
family tree. John is shtetl leader for Grzymalow, Ukraine and writes a
monthly column, "Connecting the Branches," for the Ottawa Jewish
Bulletin. He is the proud owner of Saslove's Meat Market in the center
of Ottawa's historic marketplace, which has been an institution in the
city since 1954.

Pamela Weisberger is president and research coordinator of Gesher
Galicia and 1st V.P./program chair for the Jewish Genealogical Society
of Los Angeles. She is also a professional genealogist and has
conducted research in Polish, German, Israeli, Ukrainian, and Austrian
archives.

Hope you can join us there! (To be followed by the JGSNY meeting at
2:00PM on naturalization records: www.JGSNY.org.)

Subject: Mordechai Yosef Wokstock and family #poland

אברהם <avraham997@...>
 

Dear friends

I would appreciate some help with the following:

The marriage record of my grandfather Mordechai Yosef WAKSZTOK is >from
1937, registered in Kalisz. I know that by that time he already had at
least 7 children. What could be the reason that he waited so long to
register his marriage?

Another mystery: According to his marriage license he was born in 1896,
in warta (blazski-kalsz). I didn't find any records to that effect.
His father was Yaakov (Bunim) WAKSZTOK. Yaakov Bunim's first wife was
Chana and after she died he married Mordechai Yosef's mother, whose
name is registered in the marriage license as Sara Rivka Parzenczewska
(Pewienczewska Panenczewska). In all my searches I couldn't find any
record of Yakov (Bunim's) second marriage, of Mordechai Yosef's birth
or of Sara Rivka's birth.

I would appreciate any help.
Thank you, Avraham Lapa

MODERATOR'S NOTE: Please respond privately with family information.
