A Request from the Central Archives for the HIstory of the Jewish People #poland

Ronald D. Doctor <rondoctor@...>
 

As many of you know, the Central Archives for the History of the Jewish
People is a remarkable resource for data and historical information
about our towns and our ancestors. Hadassah Assouline, the Director of
the Central Archives, has been wonderfully cooperative in helping us
obtain documents, some dating back to the 1600s. Now, Hadassah has
requested our help. Rather than paraphrase her request, let me just
quote it:

"Perhaps you could be of assistance in another fashion. Personal or
family correspondence written >from Eastern Europe to relatives in
the United States, Israel or elsewhere are important sources for
historical research, especially for the years preceding the outbreak
of World War II, but not only. Many people holding such letters
have sentiments towards them, but are unaware of their historical
significance.

"We are very interested in collecting such material, in the original
or photocopy and would be grateful if you could use your network to
inform the members of the historical significance of such materials
and ask them to deposit them with the Central Archives."

I hope some of you can help. If you can, send your materials directly
to Hadassah. Here is her contact information:

Death certificates usually give the name of the parents and age at the time
of death. Often the name of the spouse is given. Rarely the names of the
children. The number of children is also sometimes given.

How were given names, in general, transcribed in JRI #poland

Avraham Y. Kahana
 

I recently found out the name of my ggg-grandmother z"l - via the
birth certificate of her son. Now, one of the people present at the
registration has the same last name as her maiden name - which makes
it plausible to at least consider the fact that he might have been her
father. He signs as Markus Lewek Ajzenberg z"l - in JRI, I see a
record for one Lewek Ajzenberg z"l >from the same Wyszogrod as the
birth certificate - it's a death record >from 1855 - which makes sense
in my scenario.

My question is: if the record contains only Lewek as the given name,
should I assume it's not the same person ? Or, >from your experience,
not always were the full given name (when comprised by more than one,
like mine, for example - Avraham Yehoshua) recorded ?

Children names in death certificates and CHANTSIA #poland

Barbara Rubinstein <barbara@...>
 

Death certificates contain usually names of the children, at least if they
still lived with the parent.
CHANTSIA could be CHANCIA, a diminutive form of CHANA, specially a young
CHANA could be called CHANCIA.

Hi,
My grandfather's tree contains a female node where I read CHANTSIA z"l
(I would read "Khantsyia"), which, according to his methodology, would
be the name of the wife of Itzik Tzipershteyn z"l. Can anyone give me
any hints whether it resembles to any names you had already found/have
in your trees or even if it rings a bell to something close ?

Re: Finding photos of gravestones on the web - try Flickr #general

Celia Male <celiamale@...>
 

Carol Graham posed a query and received many replies - I am rather surprised
that there was no mention of *Flickr* - http://www.flickr.com/

This is a site where you can tag your photographs and if you do it carefully
they turn up in a "Google search" near the top of the list. You can also search
the site with keywords - try names such as KOHN KERNER WOTTITZ ADUTT MOSSERI
EBENSTEIN SCHWARZ - add variations [one or all] of keywords genealogy tombstone
Jewish in the search field and see what turns up. If you search for key words
*jewish genealogy* only you will find most of my tombstones. There are 1313
hits and most are mine.

I have hundreds of gravestone/tombstone photos on Flickr and I can survey the
number of visitors. These have been seen by thousands - and there have been
successful finds for some. The grandson of Mina SCHOULAL - >from UK, Trieste,
Cairo and Palestine - who died in Vienna - found her grave on my site whilst
skiing in Japan - one evening he was idly googling away! He came to see me a
few months ago in London >from Australia.

It all depends on proper tagging - Flickr is a very powerful photo-genealogical
tool. Don't forget it. It is however a fee-paying site if you post many
pictures, but it is free to search.

Footnote: my tombstone sites include these aggregated collections:
Many tombstones are annotated with genealogical information
