greatly appreciate the information.>

Someone [perhaps Rachel, herself!] has obviously been snooping around this
family [or early Australian immigrant families] as two lengthy documents have
been digitised on the NAA website and you can read pages of naturalisation
petitions >from that era: http://www.naa.gov.au/

One is a multiple document for naturalisation of these people:

STRAUBT, Louis; SCHNAKENBROCK, Heinrich; ROSENBLATT, Henry; ROSENBLATT, Louis;
BURING, Gustav; TOEDTEBERG, Leopold; TOEDTEBERG, Friedrich; FLENTJE, Herman;
BUCKHOLTZ, Julius; RAIDT, Christian; REISSIG, Johann Adolph; NEUMANN, Henry;
KLEMM, Frederik; AIGSTER, Johannes Carl

and the other deals specifically with the ROSENBLATTs, who I assume to be
brothers. This mentions Louis/Lewis [aged 32] and older brother Henry [36].
Both were merchants who left Liverpool on the Salem in 1854; they were native
of Hebel and on the given date [17 April 1857] were living in Sandhurst,
Victoria.

And here is a current Australian internet link to a Henry ROSENBLATT of Hebel
and his wife Emilie, also of Hebel. Their son Herman, married to Jeannette
WALLACH apparently moved to Port Elizabeth, South Africa, where his daughter
Rhoda ROSENBLATT was born: 18 Dec 1889; Died: 3 Dec 1984, Cape Town

Intriguingly, there is another link to the ROSENBLATT family >from Hebel, linked
to a Krakow family called NEUKORN. On 19 Aug 1902, Bertha ROSENBLATT of Hebel
married Jakob NEUKORN of Krakow:
http://www.ics.uci.edu/~dan/genealogy/Krakow/Families/Neukorn.html

The ROSENBLATT family of Hebel was obviously exceedingly mobile even in that
era. All this hopefully should lead to descendants.

Re: Galicia Records from Lviv Archive at LDS (Wow!) #galicia

Renee Steinig
 

Thanks so much, Mark, for this important information. I just went
into the Family History Library catalog to explore and want to
share what I found.

First of all, for those not familiar with using the catalog (and
as a previously record-deprived Galitzianer, you might not be!):

At http://www.familysearch.org, click "Library," then "Family
History Library Catalog," then "Place Search." Enter Lviv, then
follow these links: "Ukraine, L'viv," "Ukraine, L'viv - Jewish
records," "Metrical books, 1820-1939." Finally, on the page that
says "Jewish Congregation. L'viv," click "View Film Notes" for
details on the contents of each of the 108 rolls of new microfilm.

I found references to vital records >from the following towns,
filmed >from originals at the Central State Historical Archives of
Ukraine in Lviv:

Berezhany, Bilyi Kamin , Bolekhiv, Borshchiv, Budaniv, Bukachivtsi,
Chortkiv, Hlyniany, Horodok, Hrymativ, Husiatyn, Ivano-Frankivsk,
Kolomyia, Kosiv, Kozelnyky, Kozliv, Krycha, Kudryntsi, Liubych,
Lviv, Melnytsia, Mostyska, Mykulynitsi, Nadvirna, Naraiv, Navariia,
Nesterov, Novy Vitkiv, Okopy, Olesko, Ozeriany, Ozerna, Pidhaitsi,
Pidvolochysk, Probizhna, Radekhiv, Rozdol, Rudky, Sambir, Skalat,
Sokal, Stare Misto, Strusiv, Stryi, Sukhostav, Tartakiv, Ternopil,
Tuchyn, Turka, Velyki Mosty, Velyki Ochi, Vodiane, Zbarazh, Zboriv,
Znesinnia, Zolochiv

Please check for yourself in case I missed any towns. Once I saw my
town -- Ozeriany -- I had trouble focusing!

Note that these are current place names as spelled in the library
catalog. In many cases spellings differ >from the contemporary
spellings that appear in the JewishGen ShtetlSeeker, the revised
edition of Where Once We Walked, and/or Gesher Galicia Family Finder.
Some cross checking in these sources and on Miriam Weiner's Routes
to Roots Foundation website (http://www.rtrfoundation.org/) should
help clarify the identity of the towns.

The records are not yet cataloged by individual locality name, so
a Place Search for Ozeriany, for example, does not bring up a link
to Jewish records. As the search results state, "This is a
preliminary description provided to allow immediate microfilm
access."

Gesher Galicia Regional Meeting Summary-Oct. 2006 #galicia

Pamela Weisberger <pweisberger@...>
 

Dear Galitzianers:

On October 22, 2006 Gesher Galicia held its third annual regional
meeting at the Center for Jewish History in New York City. Below
are short summaries of our three presentations:

Peter Jassem, Gesher Galicia Steering Committee member and
president of the Polish-Jewish Heritage Foundation of Canada,
enthralled us with examples of genealogy-related documents obtained
from the Krakow, Rzeszow and Bochnia archives during a research
trip to Poland. He explained how government, property and business
records, court proceedings, and pre- and post-war Austrian-to-Polish
identification documents -- many of which contain photographs --
can greatly expand your Galician research and give life to often
lifeless family trees. He encouraged researchers to travel to
where their ancestors lived and look for their traces creatively.

He followed this talk with an important lesson on the involuntary
loss of Jewish identity after the war and the recent reconnection
of Poles to their heretofore unknown Jewish family. He provided
instances of young Poles tracing these roots and searching for lost
relatives, whether Holocaust survivors or their descendants
existing in Poland under an assumed or imposed false identity. He
illustrated the many cultural events, publications, commemorations
and academic work, which are contributing to the revival of Jewish
culture in Poland.

Peter illustrated events >from the last few years that demonstrated
his theme, including the Warsaw Jewish Film Festival, recent U.S.
touring exhibits on The Jews of Czestochowa, and the annual Jewish
Cultural Festival in Krakow -- one of the largest in the world --
where 13,000 Poles together with hundreds of Jews and foreign
visitors danced for hours in the open-air finale concert to vibrant
Klezmer music.

Peter's theme was continued in the final talk by Michael Berkowicz
on the Museum of the History of Polish Jews, scheduled to be open
in Warsaw in 2008-2009. Berkowicz grew up in post-war Poland and
attended a public Jewish school in Wroclaw where he studied Yiddish
and Jewish history along with his secular subjects. He is currently
serving on the board of the North American council for the Museum,
which will be one of the world's most important educational
institutions and Europe's largest museum project when it opens its
doors in three years.

This narrative multimedia museum will tell the story of the people
whose culture originated and blossomed in the Polish lands -- the
culture destroyed by the German Nazis. Mr. Berkowicz stressed that
the contents of the museum were predetermined prior to development
of the buildings shape. This reverse technique will guarantee
that this massive edifice will properly fulfill the museums
objectives. The permanent, narrative, multimedia exhibition has been
developed by a world-leading firm, Event Communications of London,
England. The ultramodern facility will feature classrooms,
auditoria, projection and conference rooms designed for educational
purposes. The curriculum includes an effort to reach out to high
school and university students, as well as to educators and the
general public.

This will not be a Holocaust museum but a museum of life and the
people. As such, it will focus on all aspects of history: physical,
political, religious and cultural. 75% of World Jewry traces its
roots to Poland. Beginning in the 10th century, Jews found a home
and the homeland on Polish soil; the word Polin in Hebrew means
"you'll find rest here." The museum will function under the
scientific supervision of some of the world's leading authorities
in Jewish history and will tell the complete unbiased story of the
millennium-long presence of Jews in Poland.

The project was developed by the government of Poland, which has
donated the land opposite the famous Monument of the Heroes of the
Warsaw Ghetto Uprising. The government also funded the project to
the amount of US $26 million; US $8 million has been contributed by
private sources in the U.S. and Europe. The North American Council,
a 501[c]3 tax-exempt organization, continues its efforts to collect
sufficient funds for the permanent exhibition. To contact Chairman
and President Stephen D. Solender call 212-836-1806 or e-mail him
at solender@.... The museum's web site is at
http://www.jewishmuseum.org.pl.

We are now planning for Gesher Galicia's slate of programs for the
IAJGS conference to be held in Salt Lake City >from July 10-15, 2007.
If you have suggestions of topics or speakers, I'd love to hear
from you!
Longer articles about the above presentations appeared in the last
issue of "The Galitzianer" which members of Gesher Galicia receive
quarterly. For information on how to become a member, or order back

Galicia Records from Lviv Archive at LDS #galicia

Mark Jacobson
 

The LDS has just filmed and made available all Galician Jewish
vital records currently in the Lviv Archive. These are primarily
pre-1877 records which are not part of the Warsaw Archive
collection indexed by JRI-Poland. These are films of the actual
record books which have not been indexed and they have not been
easily available until now. Most should be written in German or
Polish; little information in early records, more information in
later records. You can see details at their website
http://www.familysearch.org . Place search for Lviv, topic Jewish
Records. This includes records for towns Brody, Horodenka,
Drohobycz, Stryj, Sambor, Tarnopol, Lemberg and other Galician
cities going back to about 1800 for some towns. I will be ordering
the Drohobycz records to determine exactly what was filmed for that
town. It should include birth records >from 1816 to 1869 and death
records 1816 to the 1830's. Hopefully indexing projects will be
formed for this valuable collection.

Hungary SIG #Hungary Searching for surnames Rinder and Neufield in now Slovakia #hungary

Warren D. Fishbaugh <WFISH@...>
 

Dear list: I wish to locate ancestors in the vicinity of Zilina, namely
Lajos Rinder and Kadie Neufeld, his wife, probably married shortly
before they emigrated in ca.1889 to Chicago via New York city. Anyone
having information of this couple, your help will be appreciated.
Thank you, Warren Fishbaugh e-mail: wfish@...

Moderator: When making such inquiries it's helpful to know which resources you have already consulted. Have you checked the All Hungary Database and other JewishGen records?

Dear Orsolya,

There is not any archives in Huszt. And the pre-1895 records of
former Huszt Jewish Community are vanished. Unfortunately.
