JRI-Poland AGAD Project -- New Registers Available for Indexing: Part II #galicia

Mark Halpern
 

It was a few days ago that I announced the availability at AGAD of new
registers for 42 eastern Galician towns. At that time, I said: "If you
are interested in the Galician towns of Jaworow, Kosow, Lwow, Tartakow,
Zniesienie, and Zolkiew, please stay tuned to this forum for a message
about the projects to index these records."

Amongst the 42 town registers were 1901-04 B, 1877-1905 M for Jaworow,
1899-1905 M for Kosow, 1904-05 BMD for Lwow, 1904-05 BMD for Tartakow,
1904-05 BMD for Zniesienie, and 1904-05 BMD for Zolkiew.

For these towns, there are still many earlier records that have not been
indexed. This is due to the lack of funding to carry out the indexing.

Jaworow
~~~~~~~
Available records: 1848~1905 B, 1861~1905 M, 1842~1903 D
Indexed and Online: none
Estimated Cost to index: $5,500
Contributions to date: $1,075

Kosow

Estimated Cost to index remaining records: $4,300
Contributions to date: $530

These are towns that desperately need your generous support. Lwow should
be especially interesting to all of you, as many family branches from
all over Galicia moved to Lwow at some point in the late 19th Century.
Also, Zniesienie is an interesting town. Only about 2 miles >from Lwow,
all Jewish vital records for smaller towns near Lwow registered their
vital events in Zniesienie.

If you are interested in seeing any of these AGAD town registers indexed
and the resultant indices added to the JRI- Poland database, please give
generously to your town's project. Instructions on how to contribute can
be found at http://www.jri-poland.org/visa.htm. Please just identify
that you contribution is for the AGAD-"your town" project.

The AGAD record indices contained in the JRI-Poland database would not
be accessible to researchers without our host, JewishGen. JewishGen and
JRI-Poland are separate, independent organizations worthy of your
support. In addition to your contribution to the your town's AGAD
Project that supports indexing of the records, please give to the
JewishGen General Fund to help defray the cost of maintaining these
records on the Internet. An easily accessible contribution form is
available at
http://www.jewishgen.org/JewishGen-erosity/v_projectslist.asp?project_cat=7.

LEVI/LEVY/LEVEY roots--new to this #general

Jslevey@...
 

Hi,

I'm trying to see how far back I can trace my roots and also see if I have
other family I haven't met. I'm starting with my father's side. Here's what I
know so far.

I have an ancestor by the name Samuel Levi (may have changed it to Levy). I
think he was my great great grandfather. He would have died prior to 1905. My
great grandfather migrated at some point to England >from Eastern Europe. His
name was John Jacob Levey (he changed the spelling to Levey, b. 1878, d.
1955) He married Lydia Woolf (b. 1880, d. 1955). I believe he went by Jack. His
siblings were Myer Levy (didn't change the spelling) b. 1892, d. 1963, Lena
Levy, who married Nathan Kutner, Louis Levy, and Hettie Levy.I believe my
greath grandparents they came to NY with my grandfather Samuel Bernard (b 1905,
d. 1957) >from Southampton.

My great grandmother, Lydia Woolf had a sister Bertha, who married someone
with the surname Coombs, a sister Cissie, a brother Alfred, another brother
Isidore, and another sister, Leah, b. 1879.

My grandmother, Marion Richter was born in NY, NY to Abraham and Sarah
Ricther in 1906. Sarah died of tuberculosis in 1909 at the age of 26. Abraham
re-married but I don't have her name. She would not have my grandmother living
with them, so my grandmother was raised by an elderly German woman named Jenny
in NY. Abraham and the new wife had at least one son, but I don't know his
name, what became of him or whether there were other children.

Anyone who think they may be related or have suggestions for how I can find
out more, please let me know. I'm just getting started.

Wooden markers were used in Kozhan Horodok. On my visit in 1994, none were

Thanks to Eilat and a very prompt reply. I am not sure if DUNILOVICH is the
same town as it is NNW of MINSK and DANILOVICIAI/DRAUSTINE is NW of VILNIUS.
At this stage I have to go with my late father's passport. Interesting the
orientation though, also both about 82 miles >from their respective major
centres.

I have made this an "open" reply for this reason.

If anybody knows anything I would be pleased to hear.

I have seen Eilat's website and think it excellent and very informative.
The SWIRSKYs found there and elsewhere I have (so far) not been able to
match up with anything else I have. MUSZKATBLATs married OKUNs and, I think,
BELLMANs - if that is of any help.

Photos are being sorted (2 or 3 milk crate sizes) and cover >from c1920 to
c1980 & later Lithuania, Sth Africa, Australia, & New Zealand. Quite are few
have no identifiers and there are many duplications! I will be happy to
make them available when I get them in some sort of order!

In browsing your postings I have found some other excellent information &
think you do a great service to many searchers and researchers.

Thanks again,

BELLMANs - if that is of any help.

Photos are being sorted (2 or 3 milk crate sizes) and cover >from c1920 to
c1980 & later Lithuania, Sth Africa, Australia, & New Zealand. Quite are few
have no identifiers and there are many duplications! I will be happy to
make them available when I get them in some sort of order!

In browsing your postings I have found some other excellent information &
think you do a great service to many searchers and researchers.

Thanks again,
