Hiring photographers #belarus

David L. Davies <rhode.bud@...>
 

Has anyone had experience in hiring a photographer to take street scenes in
remote towns/villages in Belarus? We are young enough to consider
shtetlschlepping to Hansevichi/Gansevichi, but my mother-in-law cannot
reasonably make the trip to where she was born and which she last saw in
1945. Photographs of the place would be a poor substitute but might prompt
some memories. We probably know enough of Hansevich geography >from stories
to guide someone who knows the town, but finding someone trustworthy for
this small assignment seems daunting.

Re: Could Tshernianka be Trzcinica? #galicia

Fay Bussgang <fbussgang@...>
 

I would think it more likely that the town began with Cz such as
Czerna. Czernianka might be a diminutive form of Czerna, a town
not far >from Krakow.

You might check JRI-Poland to see where DIAMOND and RUDNER
families came from.

Conversion of Galician Currencies #galicia

Alan Weiser <alanboy@...>
 

I am conducting research on the price of household and personal
goods and wages of common labor that existed in Galicia during the
period 1872-1914. I have found considerable data. The prices and
wages are stated in the currency (marks, krones, zlotys, etc.) of
those times. I want to convert that Galician currency to US dollars
for that time period.

Can anyone help with this effort and/or direct me to web sites or
other sources which will help me make that conversion? Please
respond directly to me.

Thanks for any help.

Poland." ....
Jaslo is located some 70 miles East of Krakow, thus the town in
question cannot be located 'near' Krakow. Probably Krakow is listed
there since Jaslo was located after World War I in Krakow Province.
(Before the war Jaslo was part of Lwow Province.)

The nearest soundex candidates for Tchernianka are: Czerniawka at
5004 2301 and Czarnorzeki near Krosno.

Sandi,

One way to proceed would be to look at the Polish spelling of
Tshernianka. This would lead you to Czernianka/Skaliczanka,
according to at least one website now called Skalite (another
website lists it as the name of a stream running through the area),
formerly Polish, now Slovakian just on the Polish boarder, 98 km
from Krakow and unfortunately all of 188 km away >from Jaslo.

Thank you.
