Jewish Records Indexing =E2=80=93 Poland and the American Jewish Joint
Distribution Committee (JDC) are pleased to announce a
collaborative agreement to enable searches of the JRI-Poland
database to display links to selected holdings in the JDC
Archives Names Database.

The JDC Archives is the institutional repository of the American
Jewish Joint Distribution Committee, a humanitarian relief
agency established in 1914. =20

The Archives=E2=80=99 website (http://archives.jdc.org) includes
exhibitions, photo galleries, finding aids, and topic guides as
well as a searchable database of its digitized collections of
almost 3 million pages of documents, 71,000 photographs, and a
Names Index of half a million names of individuals and families
assisted by JDC.

The aim of the JRI-Poland/JDC agreement is to bring the=20
remarkable historical records of the JDC Archives to the widest
audience as well as to utilize the multi-faceted JRI-Poland=20
search engine options to dramatically increase the potential for
finding cards of interest to researchers.

The initial collection - now searchable on the JRI-Poland=20
database =E2=80=93 includes 8200 name entries in the "JDC=20
Emigration Service Index Cards: Warsaw Office, 1945-1949."=20

While only a relatively small percentage of entries list place
of birth, they include towns currently in Poland, Belarus, Latvia,
Lithuania, Latvia, Ukraine, Germany, Moldova, Czech Republic, =20
Slovakia, France, Italy and Austria.

About half the cards include "destination" (listing more than=20
fifty countries). =20
=20
Researchers are encouraged to search the JRI-Poland database for
possible family members. Use the default "All Regions" in the
"Geographical Region" in the search field.

The board of JRI-Poland expresses its profound appreciation to
the JDC for enabling us to share this important information with
the research community.

JewishGen Education Offers "Writing Short Reports" November 3-27 #yiddish

bounce-3405908-772983@...
 

New Class >from JewishGen Education

JewishGen once again offers its popular publishing class November
3 - 27. This personal mentoring class will focus on writing short
reports.

There comes a time when you want to write up your research. After you
have worked hard to collect your family data why let it sit in a drawer?

Publishing a book requires an attention to detail, editing, footnotes,
bibliography which often discourages us >from publishing at all.
Sometimes we just want to write it out and share it in a short summary.

Want to share with a relative; or compare with another researcher you
find on JGFF or Ancestry or Geni or Facebook? Need to gather and
organize your data to hire a researcher? Want to self-publish a small
coffee table scrapbook or photobook just for fun?

In this class we will help you organize your data, notes and media
files to create 3 short-standardized reports.

This structured class uses a series of lessons and a forum setting
where you will post your work and interact with the instructor who
will make suggestions as you write your rough draft, edit and finalize
each report.

Requirements: You should have enough data collected or knowledge of
your chosen surname to be able to write their family history. You will
choose one family to work on as you build a template that you can use
for other families and persons of interest.

JewishGen classes are taught in a private forum setting that is
password protected. It is open 24/7. The 3 week class starts November
3 – 27. Tuition is $150.

Re: Yad Vashem Project to Identity 80% of Hungarian Jews Murdered in Holocaust #hungary

Zvi Bernhardt at Yad Vashem advises that this database is fully integrated
into their names database and cannot be searched in isolation.

Israel Pickholtz
Jerusalem

Haaretz wrote about a Yad Vashem project searching 200,000 Hungarian
Jews murdered in the Holocaust whose names were previously unknown.
Not only did project identify people by name, but also learned about
their birth dates,, where they grew up, learn parent's names and other
family members names. The project is called the Names Recovery Project
which collected the names of Hungarian Jews murdered in the Shoah for
Yad Vashem for the past decade. They added 225,000 names to the
260,000 names they had in 2007 resulting in 80 percent of the
Hungarian victims having names. They compiled their own list of Jews
who were deported by using archive searches of census records,
correspondence, employer records , confiscated property and more. The
archives were located in Hungary, Romania and Serbia, all part of
Hungary during World War ll. The names of hundreds of thousands of
Jews were entered into the Yad Vashem database. These were not names
provided by Pages of Testimony but >from documents in archives.

Yad Vashem is using the same model for other name gathering projects
for Poland, the former Soviet Union and the Balkan nations.

Hello all,

I am looking for a family who moved >from the former USSR to Germany
(apparently):

Bella (daughter of Zalman "Zorya" ERMAN & Guttel nee KAGAN) b. 1957
married a man whose surname sounds like TSEIDER.

They have two sons: Vadim & Kostya (who were born on the late 70's & 80's).

I could not find them on any online database, nor German telephone
book, nor Facebook and alike.

If you know them or have any information on them or have an idea on
how to trace them, please contact me privately at:

Many thanks,

Thanks to all those who offered help re my post about Hebrew/Yiddish/Russian
given names. I had not known about the database.

Special thanks to Judith Singer for clarifying the problem and giving
examples.

Now I will have to return to those ancestors whom I couldn't locate on Duma
lists and try other forms of their names.

Seeking Explication of "Registration" Process / Location in Metrical Records #general

Fern Blood <feblood@...>
 

Can anyone refer me to a detailed explanation of the "Registration" and/or
"Assignment" process used in Russian lands, and which location appears in
Metrical records? For example, I am looking at mid-1800's death records for
a small town south of Kiev (Pyatigory aka Piater). More than a few
individuals were noted as being >from another town. I have been told that
this means the person was "registered" in a different town, but lived and
was buried in Pyatigory. And neither town was necessarily the place of
birth.

Thank you,

Re: Tranvenet and Domravent towns in Tergo-Morah District in Transylvania #general

Hello everyone, and thank you very much to everyone who responded to
my question. I did not have time to answer everyone personally.

The towns were identified thanks to God:
Tranvenet = Tarnaveni
Domravent = Dumbraveni
Tergo-Morah District = Targu Mures District

Vivian Kahn and Sarah Feuerstein stated that it would be difficult to
obtain a certificate >from 1937, due to the protection of privacy laws.

I have her direct granddaughter who can sign the application - is not
that enough?

Also, can anyone guide me to which exact archive I am addressing, and
how do I do it? I have no experience with Romanian archives.

Thank you

Announcing 2018 Summer Hours at the Polish State Archives #ukraine

IAJGS 2018 Listserv Communications <iajgs2018@...>
 

The IAJGS 2018 Warsaw Conference Committee is pleased to announce that
we now have an official answer regarding the summer hours at the
Polish State Archives (PSA). The General Director of the PSA system
has advised JRI-Poland that unlike past years, all branches will
remain open throughout the summer months. It is possible that at any
given time, a particular branch will have reduced staff due to planned
vacations, but they will remain open for walk-in visitors.

In addition to the PSA, there are civil records offices (Urzad Stanu
Cywilnego) in thousands of town halls around Poland. These offices are
independent of the Polish State Archives and therefore access to their
records - almost always those less than 100 years old for births -
varies >from town to town.

The level of service - at either Polish State Archives branches or
Civil Records Offices - depends upon many factors. Same day service
should not be expected as the norm when placing a request for
documents even outside of summer months.

IMPORTANT NOTE: Because the leading experts and archivists >from the
Polish and other Eastern European archives have been invited to
participate in our conference, the 2018 IAJGS Warsaw Conference
committee recommends visits to archives and towns before and after
the conference but not during it. The conference lectures will be at
least as valuable to your personal research as spontaneously showing
up in person at an archive or town hall office and may save you time
and energy.

Taube Tours is preparing a schedule of guided trips which may also
provide access to archives around Poland. Stay tuned.
