Lezajsk 1853 Cadastral Map (& Metrical Records) added to Gesher Galicia's website #austria-czech

Pamela Weisberger
 

Another extraordinary 19th century property map has been added to the
Gesher Galicia Cadastral Map Room by our map room coordinator, Jay
Osborn. It's for the town of Lezajsk in the Rzeszow Kreis (Circle(
and it is a real beauty! Even if this is not "your "town, take a
moment look at the scope, detail and "uncommon layout" of this
cartographic masterpiece.

Le=BFajsk Town Cadastral Map 1853

http://maps.geshergalicia.org/cadastral/lezajsk-lizhensk-1853/

A complete full-color lithographed cadastral map of the town of
Lezajsk (Lizhensk, Lezaysk, Lezajsk) >from 1853. Land parcels and
houses are all clearly numbered; redline manuscript revisions show
changes >from the 1853 edition intended for a later update. The town
has an uncommon layout, with three significant clusters of houses
connected by roads through the fields. The map includes both masonry
and wooden buildings, a market square, a synagogue, three churches and
a monastery, a Catholic cemetery, and a large Jewish cemetery with the
grave of Rebbe Elimelech. An unusual feature of this map is two paper
patches northwest of the town centers, correcting errors in the
original drafting of the town cadastral border. Images for this map
were provided to Gesher Galicia by the Archiwum Panstwowe w Przemyslu.

Gesher Galicia has companion metrical record databases in the All
Galicia Database (AGD) to go with the maps:

Lezajsk Jewish Birth Index (1881-1890) (1,353 records)
Lezajsk Jewish Marriage Index (Grooms Only) (1877-1938) (1,239 records)

Thanks for Brooke Schreier Ganz for continuing to add data sets to the
AGD, and, as always, to Jay Osborn who continues to toil for GG
wherever in the world he may be.

Norbert KATZ and Brit Hakoah #general

Judith Elam
 

Norbert KATZ was a player on the famous Viennese football team, Hakoah, and
organizer of Brit Hakoah in Britain. He was born in 1900 in Vienna, and
died in Hendon, Middlesex in 1979. His wife Agnes was born in 1904, and
died in Harrow, Middlesex in 2000.

I am assisting someone with his genealogy. He is related to Norbert KATZ
and is searching for the daughters of Norbert and Agnes KATZ. Their names
are Josephine and Susan, or Suzanne. They were probably born in the 1920's,
either in Vienna or in England. Any information as to their whereabouts, or
any descendants, would be much appreciated!

A friend is travelling to Poland with a group, but her ancestral towns are
Oborin, Slovakia and Svalyava, Ukraine. She is considering taking a side
trip to one or both and is concerned about the safety of crossing the border
between those two countries.

If there is anyone who has any advice about conditions on the ground, border
crossings, etc., and/or is willing to converse with her via email, please
contact me ASAP. She is leaving in less than a month. Thanks in advance.

cadastral maps #hungary

Ruben Weiser
 

Hi to all.
I will like to share with you a web page I just seen that helped me a lot.
http://archivportal.arcanum.hu/kataszter/

you can choose a county and see a cadastral map of your town for the year
1857 (if survived)
it has the names of all the house owners ,so you can find your ancestor
house location.
If the map don't have space to name the house owner there is a list of the
names with the house numbers around the towns in the map.

I will like to have more info about this maps, like:
If a town is not mentioned in there this means that that town map didn't
survive? or is in another archive?
Are there any cadastral maps with names of house owners for other years?

Thanks

Kassa / Kosice directories now searchable #hungary

Logan Kleinwaks
 

Directories for Kassa / Kosice for 1891-1898 and 1900, Kassai Kalauz
Czimtara and Kassai Kalauz Czim-Naptar, are now full-text searchable
at http://genealogyindexer.org. They also include some
administrative, business, and organizational listings >from outside
Kassa, elsewhere in Abauj-Torna County. Search results link to scans
of the corresponding pages on the Cassovia Digitalis website
(http://cassovia-digitalis.eu).

Thanks to Andras Hirschler for posting about the availability of these
directories. If you know of any other online scanned sources that
should be made searchable, or if you have physical copies that you are
willing to scan or have scanned, please contact me.

Searches at http://genealogyindexer.org include the Kassa directories
and all 1600 other sources by default. To limit your results
geographically, change the "Any Place" option below the search box to
Hungary, Hungary > Abauj-Torna County, Slovakia, or Slovakia > Kosice.

In the list of search results, source titles are links to the scanned
pages on the Cassovia Digitalis website. Those images should be
zoomed in sufficiently to be legible, but might not display the entire
page on your screen. You can change the part of an image that is
visible by clicking on it with your mouse and dragging it up or down
while still holding the mouse button. Be careful about inadvertently
dragging to the left or right, though, as that will "turn the page" in
the Cassovia Digitalis display system and jump to the next or previous
image.

If you do not wish to search the directories, but instead browse them,
you can find links at
http://genealogyindexer.org/directories#Slovakia.

A few years ago I wrote to Lodz USC to ask the mariage certificate of my

Ariel Kobi asks:

"Has anyone had experience requesting a search >from the employees of the
Lodz Urzad Stanu Cywilnego (USC)?

I've asked for a marriage certificate >from the city of Lodz and all I
had to tell them was the year of the event (1933) and not the exact date

They replied to me that a certificate like that does not exist, can I
"trust" them when they conduct an extensive search like that in the entire
year volume? or is it possible they didn't do an extensive search? ..."

In reply:

I've ordered documents successfully >from the Lodz USC before, and of course
they may always miss something when searching, but on the whole I have
found them to be very thorough, and there may be other reasons why your
document couldn't be found:

1. Maybe the event wasn't registered at all. My father, for example,
was born in 1936 but his parents never registered his birth before the war
broke out.
2. Maybe the event wasn't registered in 1933, but a few or even a lot
of years later. My great-grandparents only registered their marriage when
they were already in their 40s and had five children. My grandfather's
birth was only registered when he was 14.
3. Maybe the name in which the event was registered isn't the name
you'd expect. If a marriage wasn't registered, then the children of that
marriage would get the mother's surname, not the father's.
4. Maybe the event did not take place in Lodz, even though you thought
it did. Perhaps it occurred in a smaller town in the Lodz district, or
somewhere else altogether.

So you may need to ask them to widen the search. In addition, if you can't
get a document that you would expect to be able to get about someone, it
is a good idea to try to get their siblings' or parents' documents, because
they may lead you to the answer.

Good luck!

Ariel Kobi asked about personal experiences at the USC in Lodz.

I visited the USC a few years ago, and the two officials I met were
totally nice and efficient. I got photocopies of all the SREBRNY records
they had (or said they had), even >from the ghetto period. I believe they
have a card index, so they don't have to go through all the volumes
year by year. I did not have the impression that they were careless or
that they intentionally withheld anything. Of course, some clerks might
have personal "attitude' problems, but neither of the two that I met
did.
