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

Re: Wolkowce #galicia

Mark Halpern
 

Dear Zev:

All Galician researchers should be searching both the All Galicia
Database (AGD) brought to you by Gesher Galicia and the JRI-Poland
database https://www.jri-poland.org/jriplweb.htm. The JRI-Poland
database includes over one million Galician records that are mostly
not duplicated on the AGD.

Wolkowce Jewish vital events were registered in nearby Borszczow. If
you search the JRI-Poland database for town = Wolkowce, the results
will return about 400 matches. If you search for KOHN and town of
Wolkowce, there are 86 matches. The JRI-Poland database includes
the following records for Borszczow: 1872-1898, 1901-1912 B;
1846/1864, 1866-1929 M; 1877-1910 D. The 1914 B records are at the
Warsaw civil records office (Urzad Stanu Cywilnego) and become
available to the public once transferred to the AGAD Archive. They are
likely to be transferred in 2020 or 2021.

Wishing you success in your search.

I have found no records pertaining to the village and to the few Jewish

I would appreciate any information relating to the village. Does anyone

Andrew Zalewski to be Guest Speaker at JGS of Central Maryland on June 2 #general

Shelley K. Pollero
 

A Special Event of The Jewish Genealogy Society of Central Maryland
will feature a talk by guest speaker, Andrew Zalewski, MD, Gesher
Galicia board member and author.

Title: "CADASTRAL SURVEYS AND MAPS OF GALICIA: VISITING ANCESTRAL
TOWNS AND MEETING THE NEIGHBORS"

Sunday, June 2, 2019
The Residences at Vantage Point, 5400 Vantage Point Road, Columbia,
MD 21044
1:00 p.m. to 3:00 p.m.

The event is open to the public.

Synopsis: The presentation will introduce lesser known resources about
multiethnic Galicia under Habsburg rule (1772-1918). With the help of
archival maps, the audience will be able to follow the changing
Galician borders and the exhilarating development of railroads.
Austrian maps, postcards and population censuses, together with
newspaper clippings and pamphlets, will bring to life cities, such as
Lwow and Krakow, and other, smaller towns. Market squares, streets, and
schools -- situated close to synagogues and churches -- provided shared
spaces for Poles, Ukrainians, and Jews. Those attending will also
"enter" 19th-century homes to meet their Jewish or Polish ancestors --
all illustrated by Gesher Galicia's archival collections.

The advice received >from Jay Osborn, digital map manager of Gesher
Galicia, in preparation of this program is gratefully acknowledged.

About the speaker: Andrew Zalewski, a former professor of medicine at
Jefferson University, Philadelphia, is a board member of Gesher
Galicia and past editor of the Galitzianer. He is a frequent speaker
at meetings of genealogical societies and cultural institutions in the
USA and abroad. His research on Galicia has focused on the legal
status of Jews, population surveys, and Jewish physicians.

Andrew Zalewski has authored two books: "Galician Trails: The Forgotten
Story of One Family" and "Galician Portraits: In Search of Jewish
Roots", in which he traced the story of his Christian and Jewish
ancestors presented in a broad historical context.

Everyone is welcome to attend!

identify town of Zamset or Zanset #hungary

My great great grandfather lived in Transylvania near Kolozsvar (Cluj Napoca) and Thurda and Hatseg. On two documents >from the mid 19th century his place of birth is written very clearly as Zamset and Zanset. I am unable to identify this place. I spoke to a woman at the archives in Cluj and she spoke to a colleague of hers but they were unable to identify the town. It?s possible he immigrated to Transylvania >from another country but I have no knowledge of this.

Can anyone help?

Simon HERZOG; Bertha MYERSON; PRIMM; SCHNEIDER #germany

Kathy Herzog <kathy.herzog@...>
 

Looking for birthplace of Simon HERZOG (14 Feb 1848 - 4 Jun 1924,
Mayersville, Issaquena, Mississippi) and any information on the family
of his wife, Bertha MYERSON (14 Dec 1849 possibly Skokie, IL - 20 Mar
1916 MS) who was related to PRIMM and SCHNEIDER families of Memphis.

According to family history, Simon's father re-married when he was
young and he did not get along with his stepmother. He and a couple of
friends became stow-aways on a boat to the US. He is not on any
immigration records I could find and census records have his birth
place as Germany, Austria, Bavaria or Poland. Some family state
Simon's father was in the military in Krakow, Poland. He came first to
NY and then to MS. One friend who came with him was named Mose Landau
and the other was either a Hirsch or Birdsong.

Simon's wife Bertha may have been born in Skokie, Illinois according
to some family. Her grandson, Morris HERZOG, recalls going to Memphis
in the 20s, when he was a young boy, and visiting her relatives who
were named PRIMM and SCHNEIDER. He thinks a Schneider married a Mr
Primm and that Mr Primm worked for the post office; they had no
children. I cannot find a link to any of them.

Any help would be most appreciated.

Looking for birthplace of Simon HERZOG (14 Feb 1848 - 4 Jun 1924,
Mayersville, Issaquena, Mississippi) and any information on the family
of his wife, Bertha MYERSON (14 Dec 1849 possibly Skokie, IL - 20 Mar
1916 MS) who was related to PRIMM and SCHNEIDER families of Memphis.

According to family history, Simon's father re-married when he was
young and he did not get along with his stepmother. He and a couple of
friends became stow-aways on a boat to the US. He is not on any
immigration records I could find and census records have his birth
place as Germany, Austria, Bavaria or Poland. Some family state
