In the very late 1800s and early 1900s what Gubernia was Novogrudok
in? It is currently in Belarus but I think then it was considered
part of Lithuania. Was it in Grodno, Vilna, or Minsk Gubernia back
then?

On 03-15-01 V. Friedman asked about "Neshweiser" found on a Social Security
form. I think this may be the adjectival form used for someone >from the town
of variously Neshviz, Nesvizh, Nishviz,in Yiddish. The town's "proper"name
is Nesvizh, or Nieswiez.

It is southwest of Minsk and east of Baranovichi (Barnovitch).

Everyone seems to agree that my grandfather meant Nesvizh. I have tried to
thank everyone individually for their replies, but some bounced back - so to
those people and everyone - thank you.

The times of each talk have not been organised as yet and will be posted on
the site as soon as they are ready. The speakers and subjects for each day
will remain essentially as they are now but obviously the order of speaking
will change when we have the timed schedule ready.
There are short biographies of speakers and summaries of their talks.
You will also see which days are scheduled for SIGs and for closed meetings.

Please remember that to qualify for the early registration discount you
need to register before the end of April.

The Great Galician Indexing Race is on #poland

Willie46@...
 

It was just two weeks ago that Jewish Records Indexing - Poland announced the
commencement of Phase two of the indexing of records for 90 district and
subdistrict towns in the former Galician provinces of Lwow, Tarnopol, and
Stanislawow. Please remember that other nearby towns and villages registered
their vital records in these district and subdistrict towns.

Volunteers have come forward as Town Leaders for 22 more towns and the Great
Galician Indexing Race is on. As of March 25, 2001, eight towns have
qualified for priority in the Phase 2 indexing. They are:

1. Obertyn
2. Bialy Kamien
3. Nadworna
4. Bobrka
5. Grodek Jagiellonski
6. Ulaszkowce
7. Bukaczowce
8. Sokolowka

There are still 56 orphan towns looking for a Town Leader to ensure that the
records for that town will be indexed.

The Excel spreadsheet, which includes a good deal of information about the
records available for these 90 district and subdistrict towns and a status
report for each town has been updated. You will find this spreadsheet at the
Great Galician Indexing Race web page at
<http://www.jewishgen.org/JRI-PL/galicia/index.htm> by clicking on the
hyperlink "90 towns" in the first paragraph.

For more information about the AGAD Archives Project, please see the AGAD
webpage at <http://www.jewishgen.org/JRI-PL/agad/>.

Re: Spain--Three Towns #general

Myron Chijner <mchijner@...>
 

The best cartographic site on the web is most likely this one:
http://oddens.geog.uu.nl/index.html If it's on line, you'll find it
there.
As for the location of the cities you requested, Aragon is a district
although there are some towns that contain "Aragon". The other two
towns are in the district of Asturias and I will e mail a modern map
separately. http://www.maps.expedia.com/ was my source for these.

The other two towns I am looking for are Aragon and Lerida.

Does anyone know the location of these cities? (If possible, I'd
