Hillersleben, German #general

I notice at the JewishGen Discussion Group Archives:

http://data.jewishgen.org/wconnect/wc.dll?jg~jgsys~archpop

no messages referring to Hillersleben, Germany. Perhaps my message below,
then, is of interest to no one!

At the American Jewish Archives in Cincinnati, Ohio, I noticed and made
copies of about 10 pages of messages sent by Holocaust survivors from
Hillersleben. I am sorry that I don't know anything about Hillersleben.
Perhaps someone receiving this message will. I have digital copies, but
archive policy forbids the public posting of such images. Why do I have
copies? Because I was interested in (and am guiding the typing of) a
collection of messages sent by Holocaust survivors in Stockholm in 1945.

what to take on a "research" trip #general

nina.marie@...
 

A cousin is going to visit our root geography in Ukraine. She's not
going to be looking at records -- rather going with 9 others to see the
actual sites and exchange family stories.

Her question to me is what to take to record all this. Digital camera,
of course. She wants to take her computer and download digital tape
recordings. Since she probably won't want to schlep her computer w her
all day (remember, they're not researching archives), is it OK for her
to leave it in a hotel and download at the end of the day?

Or should she take a recorder that uses tapes and leave the laptop at
home?

Thanks,
Nina Bunin

I have found the 1882 Blackie & Sons Atlas of eastern Europe to be very
useful in my similar quests. It doesn't show absolutely every small town,
but it does show a fair number of them. Happily, these maps can be found
online courtesy of the Federation of Eastern European Family History

Subject: Austro Hungarian County boundaries unclear to me.

Both Zemplin and Szepes counties in modern Slovakia contained towns
named Dubrava at the time of the 1869 Magyar Census. "My" Dubrava (lat
48.88; long 22.36) is near the Ukraine border. I have checked Mapquest
and done Googles on these counties but have not found a county boundary
map with which to site Dubrava for purposes of census checking. Helpful
hints would be much appreciated.

Re: How to get copies of naturalisation papers from the Journal #general

Basile Ginger <bginger@...>
 

I checked into the index: these naturalisations occurred less than 60 years
ago, so you (or anybody else) cannot get copies of the files (which are
filed in Fontainebleau, 80 km >from Paris).
But it is possible to have a lookup (on site) after obtaining an impairment
of the law. All this implies tedious proceedings.
Please note that the Journal Officiel gives little information, contrary to
the naturalisation files.

I just found out (through the site Geneanet) that the rare surname of my
greatgrandfather's family appears 3 times in the Naturalisation lists on
the Journal Officiel:

ZYLBERKASTEN (No 1383464)
ZYLBERKASTEN (No 1383466)
ZILBERKASTEN (No 1025553)

How do I get copies of these naturalisation papers?

Ukraine SIG #Ukraine Re: skalat #ukraine

Kenneth:

Although Skalat is now in Ukraine, it was a part of the Austrian
province of Galicia >from the late 1700s until World War II. The
Gesher Galicia SIG covers the part of Ukraine that was formerly
Galicia. And, surprising to many, vital records for Skalat are
housed in the AGAD Archives in Warsaw.

Jewish Records Indexing - Poland has indexed these records and
they can be searched by surname on our website. Just go to
www.jri-poland.org and click on Search Database. I advise that
you set Gubernia to Galicia-Tarnopol to capture only index
entries >from the area near Skalat. For more information about the
AGAD Archives indexing project, go to
http://www.jri-poland.org/agad/index.htm.

For more information about Skalat, see the ShtetLink site at
http://www.shtetlinks.jewishgen.org/Suchostaw/sl_skalat.htm and
the Yizkor Book translations at
http://www.jewishgen.org/Yizkor/skalat/skalat.html and

Temple Incorporation Papers #general

Howard Margol <homargol@...>
 

I would suggest to the researcher to search the Hoboken, New Jersey city
directories. I have seen several instances where the incorporation of a
Synagogue, or church, was written up in a city directory. This was very
prevalent during the late 19th and early 20th centuries.

homargol@...

<If a group of people got together in 1892 and started a temple would they
have had to incorporate it? How would I search for it?

They got together in 1892 in Hoboken, New Jersey and started the
congregation. In 1902 they built a building for the congregation in Hoboken
and >from various reports I believe the temple burnt down in the 1950s. The
name of the congrgation was Moses Montifiore.>

Re: Founding of Texas Communities #general

Burt Hecht <burt1933@...>
 

A very interesting article on 19th century and the later "Galveston Plan"
(pre-WW 1 times) for Jewish immigration in Texas is found on this website:

http://www.geocities.com/txsynvr/Galveston/GalvR.html

My reading of the two postings questions how our relatives were diverted
from a destination known to one they didn't expect plus concerns of
relatives disappointed not able to greet the passengers. Thhis seems
severe and chaotic. Were not immigrant passengers required to state their
destination and the person they would stay with? There is an implication
that ships captains' would falsify the port of debarkation --- are there
instances that support this? I'm going to revisit Birmingham's books about
"the rest of us."

The following site contains historical directories >from Great Britain
and should be very helpful for those with deep roots in England and
Wales. It contains directories >from 1750 to 1919 that have been
scanned digitally. You can search by name, or location, or trade, or
any other keyword you might wish to use.

http://www.historicaldirectories.org

One caveat: if your search is successful, the number of hits is
recorded at the top. You need to click on "next hit" to get your
first hit, since the database always opens on the first page of the
directory which contains the hit. The hits should be colour coded but
are not always.
