Hi Linda,

First of all, the AGD does geographic searches in kilometers, not
miles. (That seems appropriate when searching European
locations.)

Secondly, the AGD does not have every record >from every town
-- it is not nearly as complete as, say, JRI-Poland's incredible
database. There are 50 data sets within the AGD so far, and while
~175,000 records isn't bad for a website that has been online for
only a third of a year so far, many of those data sets do cover
different kinds of records >from the same couple of towns.

Sadly, Bibrka, Ukraine (Bobrka) is not one of those towns...yet.
We simply have no records >from that town because nobody has
transcribed and donated any to us yet. But if you know of any
records for that town, and if you can submit them to us in
spreadsheet format, we would be happy to add them as a new
data set and make them available to everyone through the AGD.

In any case, if you increase the distance searched to within 50
kilometers of Bibrka/Bobrka (instead of 10 km) and make sure to
add an asterisk after the "sh" in the surname field, you'll see that
there are 14 records that will show up in the AGD, all of them
from the closest town for which we have records so far: the Lviv
birth, marriage, and death record databases. Increasing the
distance to within 100 km of Bibrka/Bobrka gives 39 results, as
the increased radius starts to pull in records >from places like
Brody, Drohobycz, and Stanislawow, for which data sets have
been contributed and put online.

This is a good opportunity to remind everyone reading this
message to please take a minute to think about what records
might exist out there for your own town(s) of interest. Perhaps
they are stored in an archive somewhere in Ukraine or Poland --
or even in places closer and more accessible to many of us like
the YIVO library in Manhattan (which holds many
landsmanschaften records for many towns, a fantastic resource
barely utilized by US genealogists!) or the Central Archives for
the History of the Jewish People (CAHJP) in Israel.

There are even records that are completely online already, and
thus available to anyone and everyone, right now! But they're
stuck in PDF format and need that human touch to be turned into
usable spreadsheets. For example, Gesher Galicia member Tony
Kahane discovered many late 19th Century and early 20th
Century school yearbooks >from little Galician towns are online
right now on a European library website. He took the initiative to
transcribe some of the yearbooks >from "his" town, Zbaraz
(Zbarazh). But the yearbooks >from many other towns -- towns
that many of us are interested in! -- are just sitting there,
un-indexed. (I hope Tony will chime in here with more details...)

And of course, Gesher Galicia has been actively involved in
cataloging and obtaining copies of old landowner records and
Cadastral maps at the Lviv archives for a few years now, and just
won the Stern Grant at the 2011 IAJGS conference in DC to obtain
more copies of those old records for many previously-neglected
towns. But record acquisition is only half the battle: once we have
the photos or Xerox copies, we still need volunteers to go
through them and turn them into spreadsheets so we can put the
data online. This is time-consuming, and frankly not always that
exciting, but it's crucial.

It is up to all of us to help rescue these records >from their musty
storage boxes and place them online for everyone's benefit. For
this New Year, let's all make a resolution: ask not what your
genealogy SIG can do for you, ask what you can do for your
genealogy SIG!

Regarding Jerry Zeisler's query:

"I have located an entry for a Stammbaum at the Kartographisches
Institut Wien. Searches for this organization come up with some web
sites that don't seem to be related to family history or an archive.
Can anyone provide some guidance as to where these records are

It appears that this Institute no longer exists under that name but
the "former building" that housed it is still around. Today it's
possible that its holdings might have been absorbed by one of these
institutions, so you could contact them and see:

You might also contact the state archives land the war archives

Also note that a New York Times article >from 1926 -- "Vienna Has
Program to Spend $13,000,000" -- tells about the mayor's ordering
30,000 new atlases for free distribution to school children "for the
double object of acquainting them with the post-war frontiers and
enabling the noted Viennese Cartographic Institute to survive the
present danger of extinction due to lack of business."

Later that year, the former head of the Institute, General Haitz,
and another officer, were arrested for forging (French franc)
currency. The article states that Haitz had full knowledge of the
"working press" of the institute. A few months later, they were both
sentenced to prison terms in a bit of a scandal.

JewishGen Discussion Group #JewishGen Seeking Abraham KANOVITCH 1874-? #general

carols
 

My great uncle Abraham KANOVITCH was an author of "The Will to Beauty"
and a portrait artist in NYC in the 1915's, 20's, 30's, and 40's. I have
been trying to find his date of death and his burial site for at least
12 years with no luck. I found his wife's burial site (1951) in Mount
Carmel Cemetery in NYC but he isn't buried with her. I sent for a death
certificate for an A. Kanovitch who died in London but no luck. He isn't
in the Social Security Index.

I have found him in the census for 1920 and 1930 in NYC. Then he and his
wife moved to South Nyack, NY. They had a son Bernard born 1919. Bernard was
in the army in WWII. Bernard and his wife (first initial "O") transferred
the South Nyack property in 1953 to the state of NY to be part of a highway.
I haven't found Bernard who could still be alive at 92 years of age.

Can someone suggest what I can do next to locate the date of death and
burial site of Abraham KANOVITCH? I would appreciate it soo much.

Thank you!

Another Conference ticket application reminder - with just 10 working days to go #unitedkingdom

Raymond Montanjees
 

Dear membership,

To those who contacted me saying that they will be attending the
Conference, but have yet to apply for a ticket - now is the time. I need to
send the
West London Synagogue the table and chair layout plan on Wednesday. Plus
we
need to know final catering numbers. Then there are the exhibitor's stalls
and stands - they need to be set up and positioned. I can only do this
when I know the final figure of attendees.

Some of you first time 33 Seymour Place attendees, may need guidance with
directions >from Marble Arch Stn. - (the nearest one to the WLS) - on the
30th. Read below :

On leaving Marble Arch station, turn RIGHT. This is the top end of
OXFORD
ST. Turn RIGHT at the lights into GT. CUMBERLAND PLACE.

Walk towards and cross forward at the lights at SEYMOUR ST. Walk towards
the next set of lights ( UPPER BERKELEY ST.) TURN LEFT at this junction
and walk towards the junction with SEYMOUR PLACE. Cross here - 33 is on
the
corner.

Motorists may still park on a single yellow line - for the time being. Do
not park in a residence bay.

On arrival, press the silver triangular button on the entry phone on the
left hand side of their entrance in Seymour Place. The black one - which
looks like an entry button, but isn't - is actually a camera. Sign in at
our
reception inside the foyer, outside the Stern Hall.

Thank you,
Ray Musik, Chair, JGSGB

JGSGB 1851 Database Updated #unitedkingdom

Mark Nicholls
 

To JCR-UK List Subscribers

I have great pleasure in announcing that the 1851 Database on the
Jewish Genealogical Society of Great Britain's website has been
updated by Petra Laidlaw. The database has a mass
of information about the Jewish population of the UK in the mid-19th
century and also extends that information both backwards and forwards
from 1851.
Petra has worked very hard on updating many of the entries on the
database since the previous revision of the database in February 2010.
I would like to thank Petra for all her hard work in developing the
original database and for all of the work she has done to add yet more
valuable information to it. I would also like to thank all of the
JGSGB Members and non-Members who have contributed information to the
database as well, without which it would be a much less comprehensive
offering.

Congratulations should also go to Louise Messik for the work that she
has done on uploading the data and making sure that it works well.
There has also been a great deal of behind the scenes work done by
Michael Tobias on making sure that the database is as secure as we can
make it, within the technical limits of JGSGB's IT systems. Once
again, thank you to Michael for giving us his valuable time.

One technical change that users of the database will notice is that
the search by ID number facility has been removed. This was done as
part of the work to secure the data on the system. We hope that this
does not cause too much difficulty for people using the database.

So all that is left to say now is go and have a look at the database
and see if there are more details on it about your ancestors in the
UK.

Regards

Mark Nicholls
Chairman JGSGB

latvia state archives material #latvia

Hello All

I have found the following on a list of materials held in the Latvia State
Archives. I have, so far, not run across some of this material in the current
translation efforts by so many people and groups.

Is something "new" contained in the following?? Or perhaps all of these are
already on the Raduraski web site?

JewishGen Discussion Group #JewishGen Can you help with an obit lookup in New York? #general

My grandfather's sister Rae (Ray, Rachel) JACOBSON HARRIS was born in
Connecticut, grew up in Rochester, and moved to Buffalo after she was
married. She died in Buffalo in September of 1978. Because I am not a direct
descendent and it has been less than 40 years I can't order a copy of her
death certificate. I am hoping that someone might be able to locate an obit
for Rae.

I am looking for the date of death (I know the month and year but not the
day) and the name of the cemetery where she was buried. I am also hoping it
might give the names of her surviving family members. I know her children's
names (Oscar, Dorothy, and Nathan) but not the names of Oscar's wife or
Dorothy's husband. Any help would be most appreciated. Please email me
directly and thanks for your help.
