On my recent trip to the Czech Republic I made a short visit to the town of
Jindrichuv Hradec in southern Bohemia. At the local archives I found a
useful website address which I thought others may wish to know about.
www.ceskearchivy.cz.
By the way the address for the regional archive there is

Occupants at an address #austria-czech

danielat1@...
 

Dominique Dubois asks " Is it possible to learn who was also living at
Fleischmarkt 1 in 1899?"
Yes it is possible. The LEHMAN's directory lists all occupants in a building
by address.
The directories are held at the National Library in Vienna but if you cannot
go there they have also digitised them so you can do the search online.
There have been postings on this SIG including explanations of how to do the
search but it's easy enough if you just Google the LEHMAN's name. Or you
could try the SIG archives.
Good luck.

HECHT of Suchomasty confusion #austria-czech

jberlowitz331@...
 

Dear A-C SIGgers,
I've been following births on badatalna.cz (Morina records,N 1868-1895
O 1867-1890 Z 1868-1895) for a couple of children of Abraham HECHT,
namely Josef (+ Marie POLLAK) and Sarah (Sali) (+ Wilhelm JUDENSTEIN).
All birth records for their children, beginning in 1880, state that
Abraham's wife is Maria Reiner of Morina (which would make her one of
"mine"). Now I see the marriage record >from 1878 (Image 188) which
states that Abraham's wife is Marie FUCHS of Vseradice. Both records
are copies ("Dupplicat") of the originals. What do you make of this?

Yizkor Book Project, November 2012 #galicia

Lance Ackerfeld <lance.ackerfeld@...>
 

[MODERATOR NOTE: See especially the listings for Kalush, Ozeryany, and
Tlumach, Ukraine -- Galician towns.]

Shalom,

This month my thoughts go out to the people in the communities of
southern Israel who were indiscriminately fired at by the terrorists in Gaza
in mid-November. Although the Holocaust is something of the past,
hatred for Jews is sadly still with us.

November saw quite a few new projects being added. One of the books
that was added "Out of the Depths" is not a Yizkor book but it does contain
a detailed listings of Lithuanian rabbis and yeshiva students killed in the
Holocaust and, as such, provides us with unique information. We are very
fortunate that the volunteers in Yad Vashem extracted this list of names
which we are able to share as we do with the many other necrologies
generously received >from this institution.

If you are asking out loud "How can I participate in the marvelously
interesting Yizkor Book Project?" and people around you are looking at you
puzzedly, I will reply. There is a myriad of ways that you take part - if you
can translate, transliterate, type or edit we have something in our project
for you. If you would like to organize a translation of your ancestral
community, all you need is some organizational skills and motivation to get
the project going. In short, if you would like to become involved, there is
certainly some way you can take part and I will be happy to hear >from you.

Now to facts and figures - as far as the November figures go, during this
last month we have added these 7 new projects:

Dear Barbara:
Please, no apologies here! We're all beginners, even those of us who've been at it
for years. As soon as we turn a corner or cross a border in our research, we have
to learn things all over again.

Ignaz: not a Jewish name, certainly not one that would be given a boy at
circumcision. In English we'd say Ignatius--like the saint. So if he's Jewish
it's a good bet that he has a Hebrew name, and Israel is as good as any, especially
with the matching initial. Does his gravestone survive? Is there any Hebrew on
it?

A 2-year difference in birth date means that one should look through the Jewish
records >from his birthplace to see how many other DEUTSCH families there were, and
which other families he might have belonged to. If there are no other candidates,
you can be fairly sure that you have a match. Check out some of the other people
whose records you've looked at. There are all kinds of opportunities for 2-year
errors. What's your source for Israhel's birth date?

Best of luck!

I have seen a couple of websites that suggest these two names might be
interchangeable. It sure would solve a puzzle for me as can see no other record
for an Ignaz Deutsch. Also complicating is that in the IKG Amstetten records,
Ignaz Deutsch is listed as being >from Radenin, but at the time of his death was
86 years old, which would make his birth date in 1819. Izrahel's birthdate is
1821. How accurate were the records?

Shalom,

This month my thoughts go out to the people in the communities of southern
Israel who were indiscriminately fired at by the terrorists in Gaza in
mid-November. Although the Holocaust is something of the past, hatred for
Jews is sadly still with us.

November saw quite a few new projects being added. One of the books that was
added "Out of the Depths" is not a Yizkor book but it does contain a
detailed listings of Lithuanian rabbis and yeshiva students killed in the
Holocaust and, as such, provides us with unique information. We are very
fortunate that the volunteers in Yad Vashem extracted this list of names
which we are able to share as we do with the many other necrologies
generously received >from this institution.

If you are asking out loud "How can I participate in the marvelously
interesting Yizkor Book Project?" and people around you are looking at you
puzzedly, I will reply. There is a myriad of ways that you take part - if
you can translate, transliterate, type or edit we have something in our
project for you. If you would like to organize a translation of your
ancestral community, all you need is some organizational skills and
motivation to get the project going. In short, if you would like to become
involved, there is certainly some way you can take part and I will be happy
to hear >from you.

Now to facts and figures - as far as the November figures go, during this

Hi all,

My EKMAN family (and possibly my Smogonsky family as well)

#Ciechanow #Poland Yizkor Book Project, November 2012 #ciechanow #poland

Lance Ackerfeld <lance.ackerfeld@...>
 

Shalom,

This month my thoughts go out to the people in the communities of southern
Israel who were indiscriminately fired at by the terrorists in Gaza in
mid-November. Although the Holocaust is something of the past, hatred for
Jews is sadly still with us.

November saw quite a few new projects being added. One of the books that was
added "Out of the Depths" is not a Yizkor book but it does contain a
detailed listings of Lithuanian rabbis and yeshiva students killed in the
Holocaust and, as such, provides us with unique information. We are very
fortunate that the volunteers in Yad Vashem extracted this list of names
which we are able to share as we do with the many other necrologies
generously received >from this institution.

If you are asking out loud "How can I participate in the marvelously
interesting Yizkor Book Project?" and people around you are looking at you
puzzedly, I will reply. There is a myriad of ways that you take part - if
you can translate, transliterate, type or edit we have something in our
project for you. If you would like to organize a translation of your
ancestral community, all you need is some organizational skills and
motivation to get the project going. In short, if you would like to become
involved, there is certainly some way you can take part and I will be happy
to hear >from you.

Now to facts and figures - as far as the November figures go, during this
last month we have added these 7 new projects:
