Mogilev Kamenents-Podolsk #general

Mara Fein, PhD, CG <mfein@...>
 

I have a 1940 Alien Registration form in which the alien states that she
was born in 1888 in Mogilev, Kamenents-Podolsk, Russia. In doing a town
search I find Kamenets Podolskiy, Kamenets Podolskiy uyezd, Podolia
gubernia, Russian Empire. I also find Mogilev, Mogilev uyezd, Podolia
gubernia, Russian Empire.

Can anyone comment on whether there was a Mogilev Kamenents-Podolsk and/or
which of the above might be the town to which this alien refers?

Is there software that "suggests" a family connection? #general

boris
 

Since this may not be proper terminology, I'll illustrate the question with
an example.

My great-grandfather was called Iosel-Khaim ben Yehuda Feldblyum.

There was another man of the same generation, discovered years later, called
Iosel-Khaim ben Menashe Feldblyum.

It is logical to assume that both men were 1st or 2nd cousins, named after
the same ancestor.

Is there a family tree making program that will flag a newly entered record
with something like "You created a record for Iosel-Khaim ben Yehuda
Feldblyum on 1/2/2003. A family connection with Iosel-Khaim ben Menashe is
possible".

Obviously, the software must be written to "recognize" specifically
Ashkenazi Jewish situations.

Thank you,

and a very happy and sweet New Year to all. May there be enough pages in the
book of life for everybody.

Free digital archive for the Hague, Netherlands #general

Tsiporah Trom
 

Hi,

I was looking for information about the family Flachs, living in
Scheveningen, Netherlands in 1919.
And thanks to the kind soul, member of Jewishgen, who directed me to the
archives in The Hague: http://www.denhaag.nl/
I inquired for information and got as answer this access to a small digital
database of the Netherlands' archives :
http://denhaag.digitalestamboom.nl/search.aspx
I found there exactly what I needed.

It's an excerpt of records made of family cards >from The Hague for the
period 1913-1939.
Useful for anyone who had family in Netherlands at that time.
Some people came only there to find refuge during WWI and ended up staying.

I hope it will be of help to some of you.

Happy hunting,

Geraldine Trom

This week's Yizkor book excerpt on the JewishGen Facebook page #general

Bruce Drake <BDrake@...>
 

Yizkor books are filled with the wrenching accounts of the dark side of
the history of the European shtetls - the Holocaust and the pogroms,
persecutions and anti-Semitism that preceded it. But they also preserve
the flavor and texture of daily life among the Jews of these towns,
through accounts ranging >from loving descriptions of the food people
ate to the folklore passed down through generations. Such an account
comes >from the Yizkor book of Chrzanow, a small town in southern Poland
a little under 40 miles west of Krakow. It is similar to chapters I've
published here before, recounting old sayings, beliefs ... and humor:
"Rabbi Naftoli used to say jokingly that he wasn't afraid of the dead,
because he always had two dead men right next to him. Yukl Dodek was
always dead hungry, and Tall Yoske was always dead thirsty."

Visit to Frystak #general

Hello
I just returned >from a visit to Frystyk in Galicia to learn more about
my grandfather, Nathan Fried, who emigrated to Hoboken in 1913. I found a
lot of information and had many impressions about the people who live in
the village. I would like to connect to others who have visited Frystyk
and share impressions and thoughts about the fact that so many live in
houses that belonged to Jews and live so close to the neglected
cemeteries.

Re: How to Find Polish Archival Records That Have Been Indexed on JewishGen #general

Mark Halpern
 

First let me wish everyone L'Shana Tova, a happy and healthy 5778.

The subject of the original posting mentions Polish Archival Records
Indexed on JewishGen. This requires some explanation of which some of
you may not be aware. The indices of Jewish vital records sourced both
from LDS microfilms and directly >from the Polish State Archive have been
indexed by Jewish Records Indexing - Poland
http://www.jri-poland.org/index.html . JRI-Poland is an independent
organization and we chose to broadly share our indices with the
Genealogy community by providing results of searches of the JRI-Poland
database through searches of the JewishGen Poland database. All the
indexing and linking to images provided by the Polish State Archives are
brought to you by JRI-Poland.

Many of the LDS films of Jewish vital records of Poland have been
indexed by JRI-Poland. To check your town's availability of LDS films
and the status of JRI-Poland indexing, see our "Your Town" pages at
http://www.jri-poland.org/town/index.htm and scroll down to your town.
If the LDS films have been indexed, search the JRI-Poland database. In
many cases, not only will you find index entries for your family, but
also links to the actual record. If there is a direct link to your
record of interest, the far left column in the results table will state
"View Image." Click on this link. If there is not "View Image" link,
take a look at the top of the table. If it includes the following:
"Eventually all index records will be directly linked to their images,
but in the meantime you can find folders with all currently available
images HERE," click on that link and search for the subject image in the
folder of images.

The new LDS policy(effective September 7, 2017)for accessing Jewish
vital records of Poland is available on the JRI-Poland website at
http://jri-poland.org/jri-lds.htm. You no longer can order the films at
LDS Family History Centers but are able to view the images on their
internal network. The LDS does not have authorization to place these
images online.

The Polish State Archive has the objective of digitizing its entire
collection of vital records and ultimately, images of all Jewish vital
records of Poland will be available at szukajwarchiwach.pl (the Polish
State Archive website.) If your record of interest is not yet digitized
and linked by JRI-Poland, you can wait or you can visit a Family History
Center to view the digital image if, as Alan Shuchat suggests, there is
a camera icon in the online FamilySearch catalog. As the Polish Archive
adds digital images to their website, JRI-Poland will create links to
their folders.

If you are unsure of the availability of your town's records, please
contact the JRI-Poland Town Leader or Archive Coordinator, who are
listed on the "Your Town" webpages along with a link to their email
addresses.

Best regards >from JRI-Poland,
Mark Halpern
AGAD and Bialystok Archive Coordinator
