Thanks to the efforts of David Lewin, we have an English translation of the
Gdansk chapter of Yad Vashem's Pinkas HaKehillot Polin vol. VI. Before
posting the translation online, it would be helpful to have another person
fluent in Hebrew and English proofread it for accuracy. If you would like
to volunteer, please contact me privately. The translation is about 9700
words, 20 pages of 12pt text, in length.

Thanks very much and best regards,

Question about Letchworth #unitedkingdom

HPOLLINS@...
 

I was doing some work in the Jewish Chronicle archive and found this item of
1909 about Letchworth. The Garden City had been formed a few years before
and it is known that it was in the Second World War that a Jewish community was
established there.
The JC of 9 April 1909 page 9 has this:
'Last Sunday evening, Mr. David Goodman, a member of the Council of the Ito,
addressed a crowded religious meeting held at the Howard Hall, Letchworth
Garden City, on the objects of the Jewish Territorial Organisation .. In
addition to delivering the address Mr. Goodman read the lesson >from the Bible
(Isaiah, chap. II), and also gave short extracts >from the Talmud.'

There may have been the odd Jew living there but hardly enough of them to
form a crowded meeting. Would non-Jews have been interested in the Jewish
Territorial Organisation, the old Testament, and the Talmud? If not one wonders
what Jews would have(apparently) especially gone to Letchworth for a meeting?

Or is there some explanation which I have missed?

Misinformation on a marriage record #lithuania

Shoshana L. Boublil
 

First thanks to all those who've worked so hard to make these records
available via ALD.

I was doing my monthly search earlier today, when, for the first time, I
found a record relating to my great-grandfather.

It was his marriage record. Chaim Korb married Leah Mera [miriam]
Rabin.

I have two problems:

a) Chaim's father is listed as Israel, when it should be Sha'ul.

Could this be a tranliteration error?

b) The wedding dates (Hebrew and English) don't match. according to the
English date listed, the hebrew date should be Sivan 10, but it's listed
as 21.

So, my questions are: who supplied the information in the registry?

Is there additional information to be found beyond what appears in the
table on the Litvaksig website?

And also, how can I get a look at the photocopy that was used as a
source for the ALD listing?

Thank you,

Different families that live together are probably related #lithuania

Ziegelman <zieg_exp@...>
 

When different families share the same registration number on a revision
list, it means they live in the same dwelling. >from my experience that
usually means that the different families were related. Sometimes in the
comments column of the revision list the relationship is noted.

For example, if I recall correctly, on the 1850 revision list for Kurenecs,
in the Kukelstein home there lived an entire family named Alperovitch. In
the notes column, it says that the father of the A. family, Benjamin, was a
nephew of Ms. Kukelstein. That means that Benjamin was a son of a brother of
Ms. Kukelstein. It furthermore means that Ms. Kukelstein was a nee
Alperovitch.

Regarding my own research, in the early 19th century, my Misli family lived
in the Vaad residence. I guess that Ms. Misli was related to the Vaads.

Raciaz Books of Residents now indexed by JRI-Poland #poland

Herbert Gursky
 

There is exciting news for Raciaz researchers!

Indexing of the Books of Residents for Raciaz has been completed by Jewish
Records Indexing - Poland!

What are Books of Residents?
~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~
Where these volumes have survived, Akta Miasta or Ksiegi Mieszkancow or
Ksiegie Ludnosci (Books of Residents) are a unique source of information on
the citizens of towns and villages of Poland. In simple terms, these
registers contain a house-by-house census of the people in the town and
the authorities' way of monitoring the movement of the
population. Different series and types of Books of Residence and Census
registers have been in use since the middle of the 19th century but, unlike
the vital records of Poland, most have not survived the passage of time.

The Raciaz Books of Residents
~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~
These are held in the Plock branch of the Polish State Archives. They
cover the period >from the late 20th century until 1931. The earliest year
of birth mentioned is 1800 and there are also entries for the 20th century.

The Raciaz Books of Residents Excel file includes page number, house
number, entry number), surname, first name(s), father's given name,
mother's given name and maiden name, date and place of birth, occupation,
place of domicile, previous place of domicile, and remarks (deaths, changes
of residence, and military service, for example).

Why are Books of Residents for Raciaz important?
~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~
These entries contain a full picture of family groups. In addition,
approximately 25% of the entries are for individuals NOT recorded in the
birth registers. Many entries include information about where
people moved to so it can open up the door to previously unknown family
branches that lived in another town. This is particularly important for
young women who moved to their new husband's town.

How do I know if my family is in these books?
~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~
JRI-Poland has created a surname list extracted >from all the
entries. Below is a list of all the surnames appearing 25 or more
times. If you do not see your family surname(s) in this list, please
contact me and I will gladly send you a file listing all the surnames and
their frequency.
