KASELSON (Vilkomir) & SUSTER (Kamajai) #general

Ann Rabinowitz <annrab@...>
 

I happened upon two unusual records for the following individuals who were
killed by the peasants of the village of Givakory, Lithuania, on August 7,
1880 and buried in Kupiskis, Lithuania, on August 11, 1880:

KASELSON, Shmuel-Girsh, age 45, born 1835, a citizen of Vilkomir. (the name
could be spelled Kesselson)

SUSTER, Mendel ben Itsko, age 29, born 1851, a citizen of Kamajai, a
shoemaker. (the name could be spelled Shuster)

I have no further information on these two records.

Correction to surname search -- FLEITMAN #general

mouallem <vze2drbc@...>
 

I had posted that I was searching for Leon or Adolph Fleishman. I had
the spelling wrong. The surname that I am looking for is Fleitman from
Proskurow, Odessa or Moscow. In particular, I am looking for the son of
Adolph Fleitman-who may live somewhere in the US. Thank you in
advance. Sorry for the possible confusion!

Major Update to the Consolidated Jewish Surname Index #galicia

Shelley K. Pollero <rkpollero@...>
 

Gary Mokotoff announces the following:

Avotaynu has just made a major update to its Consolidated Jewish
Surname Index located at http://www.avotaynu.com/csi/csi-home.html.
We have added the surnames contained in the following databases:
Jewish Records Indexing - Poland
All-Lithuania Database
All-Belarus Database
All-Latvia Database
JewishGen Family Finder

CJSI is a database of databases. It is an index to 31 different
sources of information about (mostly) Jewish surnames. Rather than
searching the indexes for each source separately to see if there is
information relevant to your research, CJSI indicates which
databases contain surnames of interest to you. Links are provided
to other Web sites that either have the databases or information
about how to access the data. Most of the sources that are not
online are published in books or on microfiche. In combination, all
31 sources represent more than 2 million records for approximately
370,000 unique surnames.

CJSI has some special features to enhance it usefulness. The index
is presented in Daitch-Mokotoff soundex order rather than
alphabetically. This means that many spelling variants of a surname
appear on consecutive lines. CJSI is browseable like a telephone
book. It does not merely provide you with a list of surnames that
match the soundex code. Keying in a given surname places you at a
certain point in the database. You can then search up and down the
database beyond the limits of the soundex code. This allows you
also to review surnames that are small variations of the one being
searched. Finally, an advanced search feature allows you to mix
exact matching and soundexing of the letters of the surname
lowering the incidence of false positives (the procedure is
described at the Internet site).

Because these newly added sources are ever growing, Avotaynu plans
to update CJSI at least semi-annually to include the additions that
have been made to these databases.

Address of archives #galicia

Bondar, Rosa <rbondar@...>
 

Dear listers:

I am new to genealogical research and was hoping to get some assistance.
I found my mother's town in the Polish Roots site and it says that some of
the records are in Polish archives, and others are in the Ukranian archives.
The site indicates that one should write to the appropriate archives.
However, I am unable to locate the addresses of the archives to which they
are referring. Here are the citations:

Galician Records Locator Search Results
Town Admin District Births Marriages Deaths Notes
Tartakow Sokal 1815-1858 - - Ukrainian held
records
Tartakow Sokal 1858-1891, 1932, 1935 1845-1875, 1917-1921,
1932,1934 1906, 1933, 1934-1937 Polish held records

3) Write a letter to the appropriate National Archives to request copies of
the entries contained for your ancestors. As with all requests, be sure to
include as much pertinent information that you have (Name, town, event year,
etc.).
I look forward to any advice or information you could offer.
sincerely,

The name Leo (BROJDE) #galicia

Michael & Christine Garnaud <m-c@...>
 

Dear Genners,

I have just discovered that the father of Paul and Louis BROJDE, husband of
Sophie SEEMAN >from Tarnopol, was called Leo. I got this Leo >from the US SSN
( Social Security No.) application forms dated 1938 and 1939 for Paul and
Louis. The two sons were born in Vienna in 1910 and 1913.

I have run JRI-Pl Tarnopol looking for Leo BROJDE about 1910, less 20 or
30 yrs (1880 or 1890), and can find no Leo. What name might he originally
have been called? For example, Wolf Wolfensohn called himself Wilhelm in
1904 when he got to Vienna!

Thanks for any ideas here.

Michael Garnaud/Wolfsensohn.

Family History Library - IAJGS Database - Index to Jewish Items #galicia

Shelley K. Pollero <rkpollero@...>
 

I saw this message on the Belarus SIG listserv, as posted by David Fox,
Coordinator:

"An index to all known Jewish items at the LDS (Mormon) Family Library
in Salt Lake City is now available on the Internet at
http://www.jewishgen.org/databases/fhlc/

If you search on a place name, such as a shtetl in [Galicia], remember
to try different spellings since there is no Daitch/Mokotoff soundex
search capability."

David Fox


This database "Jewish Records in the Family History Library Catalog" is
an inventory of the microfilms, microfiche and books in the LDS Family
History Library Catalog™ (FHLC) which are specifically Jewish
genealogical sources.

I tried out the database for some Galicia towns, with mixed success. For
Krakow, there is a list of 29 items. I then tried Lviv and Lvov but no
match; however, there were 10 listings for Lwow and 11 listings for
Lemberg. As Dave mentioned, there is no soundex, so you have to try
every possible spelling of a town name.

It is worth mentioning again that there is not much available for
Galicia yet in the Family History Library (FHL) microfilms, but we are
hopeful. We know that the FHL is now filming in Lviv, but we don't know
what they are filming.

Let us know if you find any listings for other Galicia towns on this
database and/or if you hear of any new Galicia microfilms.

Beginner's Tutorial for old Gravestones in Galicia #general

Eva Floersheim <evaflor@...>
 

For anyone standing in front of an old Jewish gravestone and trying to
figure out the names, the dates, the text, the decorations etc. - some of
the information I have written down in a little document called
"Learning about the Gravestones >from Lubaczow - A Beginner's Tutorial" may
be useful.

It is true that this particular text is based on a specific cemetery in
Galicia ( Lubaczow, Poland, close to the Ukrainian border), but much of
it will be relevant elsewhere, too.

The tutorial has several parts ( English explanations with Hebrew
texts):
1)Introduction
2) The Stone
The Shape of the Stone
The Material of the Stone
3) Two Small Letters in Hebrew
4) Decorations
Kohen or Levi?
Cut tree
Open Bookcase
Lion
Crown
"Graphic" decorations
Birds
Candelabras
5) The Hebrew Calendar - A Mini Dictionary
The Hebrew Months
The Dates
The Years
The Date According to the Hebrew Calendar
6)The Hebrew Language
Titles
Adjectives Describing the Deceased Woman
Adjectives Describing the Deeased Man
Age
7)The End

The text can be found on
