JewishGen welcomes the Danzig/Gdansk SIG #warsaw #poland

Carol W. Skydell <cskydell@...>
 

Dear Friends,
JewishGen is extremely pleased to announce the formation of the JewishGen
Danzig/Gdansk Special Interest Group (SIG), which will focus specifically on
Danzig -- now Gdansk, Poland -- including its precursor communities of
Altschottland, Langfuhr, Mattenbuden, Weinberg, and Danzig in der
Breitgasse, as well as Tiegenhof/Nowy Dwor Gdanski. The unique history of
this community and the exceptional survival of its records presents
a marvelous opportunity for collaborative genealogical research under the
JewishGen umbrella.

If you have research interests in this area we urge you to join the Danzig
mailing list by visiting < http://lyris.jewishgen.org/listmanager >. We
also invite you to visit the website at <
http://www.jewishgen.org/Danzig >. where you will see that contributions
of family histories, memoirs, photographs, maps, and other material of
interest will be welcomed..

Details about SIG projects aimed at making Danzig genealogical resources
more accessible, will be available on the website in the very near
future. Stay tuned!

Our thanks to Logan Joseph Kleinwaks , Coordinator of the SIG and Elsebeth
Paikin, Moderator of the mailing list for taking a leadership role in
proposing and organizing this entire effort to add to the programs and
projects JewishGen provides. .

We hope you are also excited and will join us as we embark on a new era of
Danzig Jewish genealogical research. We also encourage anyone who has
interests in this area and the historical records which will ultimately
reside on JewishGen to volunteer to help with projects. Some projects
may require funding, and we would appreciate your support in the form of
tax-deductible (in the U.S. and Canada) donations via the dedicated
JewishGen-erosity page

Pumpenai Internal Passports-1919-1940 #lithuania

Howard Margol
 

On or before February 24, I expect to receive the entire collection of
Pumpenai Internal Passports, 1919-1940, translated into English.

Due to the 100 year privacy law in Lithuania, researchers are not allowed
access to these files. However, I have made a special agreement with the
archives to allow researchers chosen by me, and approved by the archives,
to view the files and copy the important data contained therein.

I do not expect this Pumpenai file to benefit me personally but I am
confident it will be very beneficial to many others. Based on the files
I have seen so far, the documents in the files provide very important
information in almost every case. These files do not include only those
Jews who lived in Pumpenai. Some applicants lived in a nearby shtetl
and applied for their internal passport in Pumpenai. Consequently, you
may find ancestors who lived near Pumpenai but not in the city itself.
Also, some lived in Pumpenai but were born elsewhere in Lithuania.
That information is included as well.

To view the introduction to the project, and to search the database, please
go on the internet to -
http://www.jewishgen.org/databases/Lithuania/InternalPassports.htm

At some time in the future the data >from the Pumpenai internal passport
files will be added to the database and will be available to all. However,
you will only be able to search the database for a particular surname.
There is a great advantage in being able to see all of the data for ALL
of the Jews, over the age of 17, who filed an application in Pumpenai
during 1919-1940. Among other advantages, it gives you the opportunity
to find ancestors and relatives you were not aware of who were living
in Pumpenai. If you are interested in receiving the entire collection
of Pumpenai internal passports, please contact me privately.

Re: Slovakian Death records #hungary

Bob Lenk
 

At the website of the Slovak Embassy (to the US) there are applications
for birth, marriage, and death certificates. These can be sent with
payment and a photocopy of your driver's licence or passport, to the
Embassy or one of the Consulates, depending on where in the US you live
(instructions are on the forms). These forms require that you know the
date and location of the birth/death/marriage. Otherwise, there is a
form for genealogical research, which is a different process (form sent
to the archives, who bill you before sending results).

Links to all these forms are at:

http://www.slovakembassy-us.org/application%20for.html

The forms are in English and Slovak. I recently sent in a request for a
birth certificate. I asked how long it would take, and they told me
about 3 months.

Re: LOURIE #unitedkingdom

An ambassador (retired) tells me there is a man called Zeev Luria who was a
member of the diplomatic staff in S Africa approximately 10 years ago. Not
the ambassador tho.
You could contact the Ministry of Foreign Affairs in Jerusalem to find out
where he is today. Or simply write to him there and they would forward it if
he is abroad now.

Hi everyone

Can anyone please tell me if there was at some time a
South African ambassador or diplomat to Israel with
the surname LOURIE or LURIE or LAURIER or some other
variation of this surname?

There's a story in our family that such person was
related to us. One branch of my father's family
(originating in Shavl and/ or Gordz in Lithuania) went
to South Africa in about 1895. One brother (Abraham
LAURIER) went to Paris, another brother (Isaac LEWIS)
went to England, and a third brother (name unknown)
went to S Africa.

Thank you in anticipation.

Kind regards

Dear Roger,

Thanks very much for your introduction. Even if you do not have a known
connection to Danzig itself, we will, of course, welcome your contributions
and expertise.

Regarding microfilms: Information will be posted here and in the Projects
section of the SIG website (www.jewishgen.org/danzig) about projects to
extract data >from microfilms, when/if those projects are approved by
JewishGen. Please stay tuned for details.

Regarding the IAJGS conference: Hopefully, there will be an opportunity for
Danzig SIG members to meet at the conference. As soon as something is
arranged, I will post about it here and on the website. If anyone learns of
other talks of special interest to Danzig SIG members, please let us know.

Best regards,

Logan Kleinwaks

I'm glad to see this new SIG. I have no personal connections to Danzig
itself, but I'm very interested to hear of research and researchers.

In August I'll be presenting a paper at the IAJGS in New York. The
topic will be Prussian-Polish vital records in general, and how to put
together the various fragments in archives, on film, etc. Danzig's
vital records for 1847-1874 are on (many) LDS films; and a great deal of
information is also in the Gdansk branch of the Polish State Archives.
I would be very interested to hear >from anyone who has worked with these
materials.
