Re: Migration records #galicia

Jakub Czuprynski <j.czuprynski@...>
 

Few remarks to article by Suzan Wynne. Galician authorities kept
relatively good records concerning migrations within Galicia. In Polish
archives such records are usually under arch. collections of Starostwo
Powiatowe (County Councils), you have to know the 'powiat' to which
an ancestral locality belonged to. Each citizen of Galicia had its own
'przynaleznosc gminna' (lawful place of residence) which in course of
migrations could be changed. Documents concerning lawful residency
certificates, changes of its status survived in many archives in Poland.

The population censuses that Suzan partly mentioned took place
almost every ten years. Unfortunately very few of these documents
survived WWI and WWII, with some exceptions though - like Krakow,
Nowy Sacz and Nowy Targ county.

through New York. I found him listed on a ship's manifest (arrived Apr
7, 1912) as Witaly Weretinsky.He listed his father's name as Joesiph

.........actually Patrick... the town listed on the manifst was UGOL
in Minsk gubernya not Wesely Ugol.... so you must have more documents
about him.

"I have heard Both Vesely Ugol and Lukashevichi, are now within the borders of
Belarus - not far >from Minsk - once part of Poland.

.......Don't just "hear", do the town research. Go first to the
jewishgen community pages (I found no ugol there)...then to the
jewishgen gazetteer (all the towns in eastern europe at
http://www.jewishgen.org/Communities/LocTown.asp) and put in UGOL,
then put in belarus, minsk...because you are looking for the distances
to minsk.I did that and found 14 UGOLS, one in belarus, one in ukraine
and a bunch in Russia. I also found Veselyy Ugol 53°34' N 27°11' E
Belarus 27.6 miles SW of Minsk and it was the closest to Minsk:

None of these towns have a community page on jewishgen, so i'm going
to assume the populations of jews around 1900 was very small...

next step is to find a nearby town which had a jewish population;
that's easy too on our gazeteer..just click on the target icon for
towns within a 10 mile radius, and look for a town with the JewishGen
logo, signifying we have a communities page on it. Two towns are near
Veselyy ugol...Uzda and Dzyarzhynsk
Go to their communities pages by click on the jewishgen logo, and look
around...follow the history of the area, and what resources we have
for them...
Dzyarzhynsk seems to have more "action"...even a yizkor book...and a
kehilalinks page...

do the same thing on miriam wiener's rtrfoundation.org...query the
towns...all three and see what records exist and where the records
are.

do the same thing on the belarus sig...they have some great lists...

I can not find the name VERETYNSKY on JewishGen,
..........actually Patrick, there are 70 iterations of surnames that
sound like VERETYNSKY on our researcher database...now that you know
neighboring towns...look for anyone researching >from minsk gubernya,

Have you been considering submitting a proposal for the The International

submission of proposals approaches quickly. The deadline is 7 December
2014, no later than 11:59 EST.

All proposals must be submitted using the Conference website
(www.iajgs2015.org)

IAJGS welcomes submissions for lecture, workshop, and panel proposals (see
formats below) for the 35th IAJGS International Conference on Jewish
Genealogy.

We seek proposals relevant to the interests of all genealogists
researching Jewish ancestors. If you have a proposal that does not
specifically fit one of the listed categories please feel free to submit
that proposal as well. The specific conference theme is the impact of
WWII on the Jewish people and their lives throughout the world. Again,
anything relevant to the interests of those researching Jewish ancestors
is welcome regardless of the relation of the topic to WWII.

As the conference will take place a few weeks before celebrating the 70th
anniversary of the end of World War II, we plan to focus on the impact of
the War on the Jewish people and their lives across the world;
WWII-related topics include, for example:
* Jewish life in Europe and beyond
* Jewish soldiers in the military
* Resources for military documentation
* The Holocaust
* Emigration and Immigration
* Unique archival repositories

Other unique focus areas include, but are not limited to:
* Resources for researching in Israel (including in pre-State Israel aka
Palestine)
* Technology, tools and techniques
* Academic studies which might assist the Jewish genealogy community
* Jewish genealogy for the younger generation

In addition, we welcome proposals for such Jewish genealogy topics as:
* Resources for researching Sephardic genealogy
* Researching Rabbinic lineages
* Jewish genealogy for beginners
* Country and region-specific research
* Onomastics

Proposal formats:
* Lectures - 45 minutes, including time for questions;
* Workshops - 105 minutes each in the computer lab. Workshops will be
opened upon a minimum number of registrants.
* Panel discussions - 105 minutes. The panel, focusing on a high-level,
broad subject, will include up to five speakers on a given topic, will be
led by a chairperson and will be summarized by a facilitator (all
participants should be named in the proposal). A typical panel will
include time for each speaker, a few minutes for the facilitator, and 20
minutes for an open discussion.

Any one prospective speaker may submit up to five proposals in either
English or Hebrew. A maximum of three proposals per speaker will be
accepted. Individual speakers with at least one accepted proposal receive
a partial registration fee waiver.

All proposals must be submitted using the Conference website
(www.iajgs2015.org); e-mail submittals will NOT be accepted.

Proposals must include the following information (required via the
submission form):
* Full name, mailing address, email address, and telephone number of
presenter(s)(If a panel proposal, details for each panelist are required)
* Brief biographical sketch - (up to 50 words)
* Summary of recent presentation experience (up to 150 words)
* Title of presentation (up to 15 words)
* Presentation type (lecture, workshop, or panel)
* Brief description of the presentation (up to 150 words)
* Audience skill level (beginner, intermediate, advanced or all)
* Preferred language of delivery (English, Hebrew, French)

Submissions Deadline is 7 December 2014, no later than 11:59 EST.

South African immigrants #general

Hazel Dakers
 

Whilst the majority of contemporary SA Jews are descendants of Lithuanian
and Latvian Jews who came towards the end C19th, my family is not. My South
African grandfather's father came to SA >from Luegde near Hameln in Germany
along with a multitude of cousins in the 1860's and his mother was proud to
be descended >from 1820 settlers >from London. Amongst the hundreds who
emigrated >from Great Britain in 1820 - SA equivalent of the Mayflower- (some
family members following in the ensuing decade) a tiny handful were Jewish.
Prior to that Louis Hermann wrote in the mid-C20th of a very few Dutch Jews
in SA.

SA was a land of opportunity - gold and diamond mining with attendant
business opportunities and huge areas of land - and it must have seemed a
land of milk and honey to E. European Jews late C19th onwards seeking a new
home. The usual pattern of immigration still is to follow family members or
neighbours who appear to be making good.
