Thanks to those who responded. For the ones who asked if I plan to do any
research, no, I don't. I would just like to see the place where my
grandfather was born.

Visiting Moravia #austria-czech

robert fraser <robertandginafraser@...>
 

I'm starting to plan for a trip next year to include several places in
Moravia, and would be very glad to hear privately >from people who have
visited the places mentioned below, and what their experiences - good and
bad - were. How did you get there, what was transport like, what was local
accommodation like etc. We will probably be based in Vienna, but don't yet
know how much time we'll have available. After looking at maps, I have very
very tentatively thought that we might stay a night or two in Brno and see
the places over two/three days. I don't intend to do any research - I just
want to see the places where my ancestors lived.

I have explored some of the on-line information available, but no doubt
there's more, and personal experiences would be most useful.

The places are (possibly) Terezin, Uhersky Brod, Uhersky Hradiste, Hodonin
and Podivin. I have a contact in UB, which will doubtless help.

Please respond privately

Many thanks

Re: Misie as Female Given Name - mystery with Tysmieniczany records #galicia

There are many examples in many towns in Galicia where the child's
surname is not identified and where the father is also not identified.
This information is missing >from the original record.

Why is this information missing? My guess is that the child, Rubin, was
considered by the Austrian Government to be illegitimate. This means his
parents, who were most likely married in a Jewish religious ceremony,
were not married in a ceremony that could be registered with the civil
authorities. In many cases like this, the child's surname is not
recorded.

The fact that the father's name is missing could also mean that the
parents did not have a recognized civil marriage. Many times the
father's name is recorded when he signs a witnessed statement of
paternity. For some reason, this did not happen. It also could be that
the father had died before the birth. Since no other births to Misie
HORN appear in the Stanislawow indices, it could be that the father died
before childbirth.

Dera Mark,

Thank you kindly for your reply.

I'm afraid that mystery is not resolved.

Consider the following:

There are 243 records for town Tysmieniczany listed in JRI-Poland records.

With exception of three records listed in Bursztyn, and one record listed in
Rozdol for Tysmieniczany, all other 239 records ( thirty three in Kolomyja,
three in Nadworna and 203 in Stanislawow) do not include child and father
names.

What had happened in Tysmieniczany? Looks like a witch-hunt or some kind of
curse has declared all local women to be illegitimately married.

I can understand that in few cases this can happened but not in 239 out of
243.

Is there a possibility to examine at least one original birth record to
check annotations made by the local scribe or Stanislawow Rabbanut in order
to resolve the mystery. Can you please arrange this with AGAD folks?

Best,

Alexander Sharon

I have read also your message related to Rubin Horn and Tysmieniczany

Misie Horn (maiden name) >from Tysmieniczany as mother of Rubin, born
1891.

I would like to draw your attention to an unusual pattern regarding
Tysmieniczany records.

There 243 records (mostly births) related to town Tysmieniczany. With
a few
exceptions, in nearly all of them there is missing following data:

Child surname,
Father's surname
Father name
Father's town (town 1)

Is this something that missing >from the original records, which would
be a
bit unusual (how records were listed in the first place?) or it is an

format?

I am copying this letter to Mark Halpern with the request that he will
investigate the issue.

Hello JewishGenners,
I am trying to find anyone who has the specific BRCA-1 gene mutation called,
185del AG. If you or anyone in your family has this specific mutation, it
is very likely we are related in some way. Would love to compare notes, even
if we don't appear to share a surname in common. Our common ancestor could go
way back beyond the time surnames were used.

Thanks,

Question: *Who* is rebuilding the synagogue? Former residents or

Is it going to be a holocaust memorial for those who perished or used
