I am looking for information about Gerson BARBASCH, born in Zalescyki in
1854. He then moved to Podwoloczyska and married there.
He may be my great-grandfather. I have no data re: any relatives of his
or other pertinent information.
Thank you.

Soviet Holocaust records for the Stanislav region #galicia

Renee Steinig <rsteinig@...>
 

The "Soviet Extraordinary Commission" database on JewishGen
contains 15,000 entries for what was then the Stanislav oblast
("Stanislavskoy obl."). This region, now Ivano-Frankovsk oblast,
Ukraine, was part of Galicia through World War I.

Among these Stanislav entries are large numbers of records for...

Bolshovetskom rayone (Bolshovtsy district)
Dolinskom rayone (Dolina district)
Kutskom rayone (Kuty district)
Stanislave
Yaremchanskom rayone (Yaremcha district)

The records can (but don't always) include first and last names,
patronymic, birth year, gender, profession, a notes field, and
microfilm reel and page numbers. The notes field generally
includes a location - town, district (rayon), and/or oblast. For
example, the notes for records in the Dolina district say
"Zlodeyaniya sovershali nemetsko-fashistskie zakhvatchiki i ikh
soobschniki v Dolinskom rayone Stanislavskoy obl. mart 1945 g,"
which translates to something like "crimes committed by the
German Fascist invaders and their collaborators in the district
of Dolina, Stanislav oblast, [recorded in] March 1945."

The records can be searched using the form at the bottom of

www.jewishgen.org/databases/Holocaust/ExtraordinaryCommission.htm

or (better) with the form at

www.jewishgen.org/databases/Holocaust

Because there is no town field in the database, searches by town
will come up blank. To narrow a search to the Stanislav region,
enter Stanislavskoy in the Any Field box. Doing so will pick up
that word in the database's notes. (Any Field is an enhanced
search feature available to JewishGen donors.)

This online data was extracted >from the records of the
Extraordinary State Commission to Investigate German-Fascist
Crimes Committed on Soviet Territory >from the USSR. The original
records, written in Russian, are based on testimony of neighbors,
eyewitnesses, and survivors that was collected at the end of
World War II. The originals are archived in Moscow. The U.S.
Holocaust Memorial Museum has microfilmed copies, and records
from **some** of the USHMM's microfilms are in the JewishGen
Holocaust Database. Some of the original Soviet records were not
microfilmed and many of the microfilmed records are not yet in
JewishGen's database.

The contents of the microfilmed records are described in a
USHMM finding aid at

www.ushmm.org/uia-cgi/uia_doc/archives/xRG22002M

and in a JewishGen InfoFile at

www.jewishgen.org/InfoFiles/Extraordinary.htm

The InfoFile lists over 180 towns that were formerly in eastern
Galicia, including Bolekhov, Borislav, Borshchov, Bugach,
Burshtyn, Delyatin, Dolina, Drogobych, Gorodenka, Kalush,
Kolomyya, Kuty, Lvov, Mikulintsi, Skalat, Snyatin, Stanislav,
Tarnopol, Tlumach, Tluste, and Zborov. Regarding the InfoFile,
please note: 1) Current spellings of many town names are
different. 2) Some of the towns are now in different oblasts
than the regions listed. 3) The list is incomplete.

A note to Dolina researchers: The online listings for this
district include 400 different surnames. Some of them are
BITKOVER, BONOM, BRASLER (BRESLYAR), DRIMMER (DRIMER), FREILICH
(FRAYLIKH), FRIEDLANDER (FRIDLANDER), GARTENBERG, GELOBTER
(GELEBTER), JAEGER (YEYGER), JEKEL (YEKEL), KAUFMAN, KRIEGEL
(KRIGEL), LUSTIG (LYUSTIG), RATTENBACH (RATENBAKH, ROTENBAKH,
ROTENBEK), TAUB, TIGER (TAYKIR), WALDHORN (VAL'DGORN), WEITZNER
(VAYTSNER), WOLLUCH (VOLYUKH).
