(Czech Republic) Two New Books on Jewish Cemeteries in the Czech Republic #austria-czech

Jan Meisels Allen
 

Jewish Heritage Europe recently posted about two new books on Jewish
cemeteries in the Czech Republic. Both books are illustrated with
photographs and both are written only in Czech and currently only available
in the Czech Republic.

One book is Jewish Cemeteries and Burials by Jaroslav Achab Haidler and the
other Gardens of Life: Moravian Jewish Cemeteries in Photographs by Helena
Bretfeldova.
Mr. Haidler is behind Project Keshet, a database about Czech Jewish
cemeteries that is online at
http://www.chewra.com/keshetnewen/kweb/kategorie.aspx

Information about the two books may be found in the Jewish Heritage-Europe
article found at:
https://jewish-heritage-europe.eu/2019/05/28/czech-republic-two-recent-books
-on-jewish/

I have no affiliation with either book and am posting this solely for the
information of the reader. I have no further information than what is in the
Jewish Heritage Europe article mentioned above.

cadastral map for Prague ghetto? #austria-czech

rfc974@...
 

Hi folks:

I'm doing some analysis of Prague Jewish births and deaths 1784 and
1800. I'm trying to get a better sense of the population dynamics.
But I'm also noticing dynamics around specific buildings. For
instance, a lot of people seem to die in house 248.

So I'm looking for a map of the Prague ghetto that has the house
numbers >from the late 1700s. Does anyone know if there is one? I'm
imagining a cadastral map, but when I looked at the database of
cadastral maps, I failed to find one for the ghetto.

Thanks!

Craig

Many of the records at FHL are also available on the Polish archives
(and in other cases, the Polish archives might contain scans not on
FHL or vice-versa).
You can go to the main Polish archives website -
https://szukajwarchiwach.pl/
And type, for example, mojzeszowego Warszawie
This search brings up a list of units - each being a book of records.
Normally, it accepts English as well, but here you have to type
Warszaw, not Warsaw for the search to find the books.
On the left you have filters such as "vital records and civil
registers only" and "units with scans only"
If you click any of the item, you can find a link to the collection:
72/200/0 Akta stanu cywilnego wyznania mojzeszowego w Warszawie
https://szukajwarchiwach.pl/72/200/0/-#tabZespol
You now have tabs on top allowing to explore all the units of these
collection. You'll need to have a basic understanding of
Russian/Polish script to be able to identify records. Many of the
books contain hand-written indexes at the end (or, if a single book
contains separate sections for birth/marraige/death, it might have the
hand-written index after the relevant section)

Another useful website is:
http://www.lostshoebox.com/poland/online-records/

Units at FHL are already digitized if they have an associated DGS
number. I don't know if there is any way to still view the original
microfilms as FHL has decided to scan all their collections and
provide online access to them. Perhaps the units are not online due to
contractual restrictions. I see some units online in Warsaw, though.

my research, I have not found any Jacob/Yacov/etc. of the right age.

Mojsche and his wife Golda Fishman/Fiszman were married in Warsaw
1897/98. I have not found any records on familysearch or jewishgen for
that family.

Questions:
1. Have all of the 19th century Jewish records in the Warsaw Archives
been copied by the LDS?
2. If not, are they accessible to a researcher I would hire there?

Cathy Miller raises an interesting question about how to read the LDS
microfilms accessed >from the Litvak SIG records.

From: Cathy Miller <cathymillernz@gmail.com>
Date: Tue, 28 May 2019 07:49:10 +1200
VITEN, Girsh Eliyash ben Izrael son of Yosel 2270864 / 2

LVIA/1226/1/1309/649 1887 Panevezys Record #M71
When I look at the microfilm, Volume 1226/1/1309 starts at image
number # 314 but I cant find a reference to the last 3 digits (649) or
M71
M71 means the 71st male record for that year and that town. The problem
is how to find the right page. 2270864 / 2 means item 2 in film #2270864.
(The digitized films have different film numbers, but clicking on 2270864
automatically brings you to the digitized version, which has number
#004221332.) As Cathy found, image #314 is the start of item 2. It takes
some work, but the Panevezys 1887 births start at image #628. There is an
index in Lithuanian (Latin script) for that year, and VITEN Girsh Eliyash
appears on image #631. The index says his actual birth record is #51 on
p. 274. The page numbers are written in the upper right corner of the
record book pages, and page 274 is on image #644. GIrsh is M51, not M71
(M71 is on #650 and is for a boy named Daniel Brezniker). The records are
in Russian and Hebrew.

The handwriting in the record is a little hard to read, but it says the
father, Izrael Yosefovich Viten is a soldier in the reserves and the
mother is Elka-Miraka[?] Gershkovna-Elyashovna. Her birth name was Blokh.
So the boy was named after his mother's father.

The second entry pertains to the marriage of a putative great great
uncle (brother of the above mentioned Tsalel/Calel/Izrael)
VITEN, Kashriel ben Yosel 2205137 / 2

LVIA/1226/1/1029/197/187 Marriage Record #2 1877 Birzai
When I look at the microfilm, Volume 1226/1/1029 seems to be in the
section that starts with 1226/1/1026 - 1226/1/1041 on image number 109
and 1877 seems to start at image number 160
Here #2205137 corresponds to the digital number #004221323. The marriage
book for 1877 in Birzai does start at #160. Record #2 is on image #161.
It is indeed for Kashriel' Ioselovich VITEN and Rivka Ioslovichova Kagan.
He is >from Vabalninkas (Vabol'niki in Russian, Vabolnik in Yiddish).
Their ages are listed as 22 and 18, respectively. This is echoed in the
Hebrew, where he is Kasriel ben Yosef and she is Sarah Rivka bat Yosef.

If the date of the marriage and the age of Kashriel (22) and his wife
(18) at the time of marriage are correct, then this conflicts with
other evidence that suggests they may have been about 10 years older
at the time. I have been wondering whether I am dealing with one
Kashriel or two. Since Kashriel ben Yosel is a rare name and Viten far
from common, it would help to check this transcription in case there
is a simple error that could explain this discrepancy.

So many of our immigrant ancestors lived in New York City -- they
started on the Lower East Side and upgraded to the Bronx and Brooklyn;
their children moved to Queens, Westchester, Long Island and New
Jersey.

We have census reports >from Ancestry and vital records from
ItalianGen, but this class will focus on the more esoteric documents
our ancestors generated, including probate, landsmanshaften, voter
registration, newspapers, and court case records.

This is an intermediate level genealogy course with eight text lessons
you can download; there are no specific times for the course as
students are international. Students will select a branch to research
and receive daily advice and suggestions >from the instructor through a
24/7 Forum, in a query and answer format. Students must feel
comfortable browsing the web and downloading files, have 8-10 hours
available each week, and should select one NYC family where census and
vital records are already documented.

Tuition is $150; registration is open at:
https://www.jewishgen.org/education/description.asp?course=40135

Lodz Area Research Group #Lodz #Poland JewishGen's NY Genealogy Course starts June 14 #lodz #poland

Nancy Siegel
 

So many of our immigrant ancestors lived in New York City -- they
started on the Lower East Side and upgraded to the Bronx and Brooklyn;
their children moved to Queens, Westchester, Long Island and New
Jersey.

We have census reports >from Ancestry and vital records from
ItalianGen, but this class will focus on the more esoteric documents
our ancestors generated, including probate, landsmanshaften, voter
registration, newspapers, and court case records.

This is an intermediate level genealogy course with eight text lessons
you can download; there are no specific times for the course as
students are international. Students will select a branch to research
and receive daily advice and suggestions >from the instructor through a
24/7 Forum, in a query and answer format. Students must feel
comfortable browsing the web and downloading files, have 8-10 hours
available each week, and should select one NYC family where census and
vital records are already documented.

Tuition is $150; registration is open at:
https://www.jewishgen.org/education/description.asp?course=40135

For questions, please email the instructor: Phyllis Kramer,
