New Holocaust project records on All Galicia Database #general

Gesher Galicia SIG
 

Gesher Galicia has uploaded Holocaust-period records >from three towns in the
Rzeszow area to the All Galicia Database <https://search.geshergalicia.org/>. Two
further sets of Holocaust records >from Nowy Sacz are being finalized and will be
uploaded in the next ten days. The records already uploaded are >from the following
towns.

Rzeszow (>from Rzeszow state archive)
- Jewish registration and ID cards 1919-1942, of Jews living in
Rzeszow during the Nazi occupation of the town.
The majority of these documents are registration cards or other notes,
many with photos, dated on or within a few days of July 10, 1942, in
the same week as the first mass deportations to Belzec, of some 14,000
Jews >from the Rzeszow ghetto, took place. Several of those whose ID
cards date >from July 1942 are of women who had married in the previous
few days. These marriages were likely undertaken in the hope,
tragically false as it turned out, of avoiding deportation.

- Jewish marriage certificates 1939-1942. [These records were
already announced earlier.]

Czudec (>from Rzeszow state archive)
- Lists of Jewish residents, 1940-1942.
There was no ghetto in Czudec, whose earlier Jewish population had
been relatively small. Under the occupation, Jews were brought into
the town >from the neighboring area. We have combined the information
from six files into a single spreadsheet. Several of these deal with
forced labor, as people were sent to work in municipal or private
enterprises, in Czudec and in nearby towns, mainly Strzyzow. There are
also records of the distribution of food rations and of heating oil.

- A small set of birth and death records >from Czudec, 1939-1942.

Mielec (>from Rzeszow state archive)
- List of Jewish residents, August 1940 (2,320 records). As with
Czudec, there was no ghetto in Mielec.

Holocaust records to come:
- Nowy Sacz punishment books (Nowy Sacz state archive)
Two books of punishments of the population of the town >from 1940-1942,
from which likely Jewish names have been extracted. The offenses
(often utterly trivial) are recorded, along with the fines imposed or
prison sentences.

- Nowy Sacz forced labor lists (Nowy Sacz state archive). These are
lists of Jews in Nowy Sacz obliged to report for work in the complex
of municipal workshops, located on Lwowska street in the ghetto.

These Holocaust projects have been coordinated by Gesher Galicia Board
member Michal Majewski, who did much work on them himself. Gesher
Galicia thanks Michal, and all the others who have worked on acquiring
and inspecting the records, indexing them, and uploading them to the
database, including:
- Klaus Denser, Piotr Gumola, Katarzyna Marczuk, Natalia Mazur, Maria Molenda,
Slawomir Postek, Maciej Walasek, Maciej Wzorek, Laura Zaki, and Roza Zabojszcz.

Gesher Galicia is also most grateful to JewishGen, who provided a generous grant,
enabling the full 2018 Gesher Galicia Holocaust project to be carried out.

Tombstone Photo Request - Budapest Kozma Utca Cemetery #romania

Aaron Slotnik
 

Hello,
I am trying to get a photo of a tombstone in Budapest's Kozma Utca
cemetery.
It is for my gg-grandmother's brother Ferenc MARTON and his wife Matild
nee JUDOVICS who both died in Budapest in 1934. I just found what may
be my gg-grandmother's tombstone in the village where she lived, but
need to confirm their father's Hebrew name and am hopeful that Ferenc's
matzeva will include it. Their father's secular Hungarian name was Jozsef,
but as was often the case with our Hungarian ancestors his Hebrew name
may have had no relation to that.
I have the exact location of the grave so please contact me directly to
avoid any duplication of effort.

Regards,
Aaron Slotnik

Polish Occupation translations #general

Maxwald
 

Hi Genners,
As an extractor of polish records, I have come across a town that has more
people with the occupation of Szpekulant, which in the past I have
translated as 'Money Lender', than any other occupation.
I feel it may have meant to be Trader or Dealer which is normally Handlarz
or Kupiec. This was during the 1850's-1860's. During this period Handlarz is
hardly mentioned in this towns records..
Inviting any comments.

LUCHANSKY and LUBCHANSKY, New London, Connecticut, USA and Poland/Ukraine #general

Joseph Walder <jswalder@...>
 

I am descended >from Itzhak Manev LUCHANSKY of Koshevata, Tarashcha uyezd, Kiev
gubernia, to use Imperial Russian administrative terminology. Itzhak Manev's
descendants who came to the United States settled primarily in the Midwest;
Philadelphia and Erie, Pennsylvania; New York City; and California.

Several months ago, I learned that there had been a lot of LUCHANSKYs who settled
in and around New London, Connecticut. Archival research with old Russian records
revealed that there were New London LUCHANSKYs descended >from three of Itzhak
Manev LUCHANSKY's brothers: Ios' Aron Manev, El' Manev and Moshko Manev. However,
I cannot trace all New London LUCHANSKYs to these three brothers. Unfortunately
Russian census records prior to the all-Russia census of 1897 tended to be male-
only.

A curious wrinkle on the LUCHANSKY/New London story is that there were also some
immigrant Jewish families in New London named LUBCHANSKY. It appears that
LUBCHANSKY immigrants came >from Novogrudek, near Grodno, in what would have been
Russian Poland before WW1, Poland between the world wars, and the Belarusian SSR
after WW2.

I'm of course curious whether the LUCHANSKY and LUBCHANSKY families were related
in the old country, but I can't figure out how to explore that idea. Any
suggestions would be appreciated.

Epidemics in Minsk #belarus

Marsha Epstein <marsha.epstein@...>
 

Before childhood vaccines and antibiotics, many children died of
diptheria, pertussis (whooping cough), measles, diarrheal diseases,
influenza, pneumonia, strep throat, etc. And TB was a major killer.
My great grandmother died of "consumption", and two of her children
died of TB as young adults. There was very high mortality for kids.
One great grandfather said he had no siblings, but I found several
records of deaths >from "summer ailment" of kids 1-3 years old who
were probably his siblings. When I asked my family if there had
been any other kids, they said yes, two kidshad died young before
they left Russia.

Re: Szikszo #hungary

HungarianRoots
 

Sarah,

The town in question is Szikszo in the former Abauj county
(now: Borsod-Abauj-Zemplen county).
You did not specify which time period you would like to look at,
but here is all you need to know:

- Jewish vital records before Oct 1, 1895 for Szikszo have been lost.
It is one of the very few registers that aren't available at all.

- Civil vital records >from Oct 1, 1895 are available at the
local registry office and at the county archives in Alsozsolca.
However, you can get access to birth records at the archives
with a proven connection to the people you are researching
or a special scientific researcher status. However, some of
the earlier part of these records are available at the
FamilySearch.org website.
- (post-1895 Jewish records are also available, at the
Israeli National Archives).
