new Stanislawow field sketch (1848) on the Gesher Galicia Map Room #galicia

Jay Osborn <jay.osborn@...>
 

It's been several months since we've posted a new old map to the
Gesher Galicia Map Room; we've been working on a new map data
project we hope to publish before the end of the year. But while that
work continues in the background, last week we assembled the central
sheets of a field sketch >from 1848 for an important Galician city:
Stanislawow, a.k.a. Stanislau, and today known as Ivano-Frankivsk.

https://maps.geshergalicia.org/cadastral/stanislawow-ivano-frankivsk-1848/

This is an early field sketch, very rough in its style and geographic
accuracy; to make sense of the sketch, we cut the scans into small
pieces and aligned them to an interwar map of the city, using
recognizable features on both maps to correct the sketch, then
blended edges to make a mostly seamless image. A few small areas on
the old map lack data and are left blank; in other places, the surveyor's
original sketches could not be pulled into alignment with the current
geography. But overall the old map is dense and informative, and the
vast majority of details are geographically close, if not exact.

Even if the map seems rough at first glance, a careful review will give
generous rewards. Like most field sketches, this map of Stanislawow
labels the buildings and fields with the house numbers of the property
owners, which means that anyone who has vital records >from the
period can directly locate family houses and land without needing
property records as an intermediary tool. As a bonus, outside the
dense city center, many land parcels are annotated with the
landowners' names, so no other records are needed to directly identify
family properties. This benefit works for anyone with ancestry in the
city and its suburbs: Jewish, Ukrainian, Polish, etc.

Like some other large urban areas in Galicia, Stanislawow was divided
into numbered business and residential districts; the sketch does not
indicate these clearly, so it's easy to be confused when looking for
specific house numbers >from vital records and other data. The district
numbering for the city is generally indicated on a street map in the
GG Map Room:

https://maps.geshergalicia.org/general/ivano-frankivsk-stanislawow-1941/

...and on several of the maps >from the excellent collection in the Urban
Maps Digital project of the Center for Urban History of East Central
Europe, in Lviv:

http://www.lvivcenter.org/en/umd/location/ivano-frankivsk/

Re: emigration from the US #ukraine

Henry, Unfortunately those records don't generally exist or if they do, they
are not readily available. If the person left the US and went to the UK
first and then back to Poland, the Ukraine etc, then there would be
immigration records of people arriving in the UK. But short of going to
England first, it is my understanding that these records generally do not
exist.

Just to set the record straight...when an immigrant's entry on a
manifest is crossed out, it means that the immigrant did not get on
that steamship. Depending on which index you view, the name may be
listed anyway.

Major steamship lines completed the manifests in advance, but if the
immigrant did not board the ship he was intended to it was typically
because of medical issues with himself or his family.

Once an immigrant arrived, if he did not meet US requirements he could
be deported. In that case there would be an entry by his name.

One of the best resources is Marian Smith's Manifest Markings - A

Re: Immigration (and re-immigration) to USA #ukraine

Records were not kept of people leaving the USA, nor have I ever been
successful in finding records of people arriving in European countries from
the US.

There are two things I've found useful that may help in your case:

1) If your grandfather became a US citizen before he returned to the
Ukraine, he would have applied for a passport. His passport application may
give more application as to the reason for his return, how long he intended
to stay, etc.

2) If your grandfather returned to the States before 1925 and went through
Ellis Island, he would have been asked if he'd been in the States previously
and if so, for what period.

Good luck!

People crossed out on passenger lists missed the sailing. They didn't
arrive in the US on that ship at all but usually took another ship at
a slightly later time.

"Sometimes (as in the case of my great-grandmother), the immigrants
arrives in New York, but had some medical or financial issue, and were
crossed off the list. The crossed out entries have been micofilmed but
not indexed. My family ended up going to relatives in Canada, and
eventually entered the U.S. by train through St. Albans"

Searching KABAKOV #general

David Goldman
 

Greetings, Jewishgenners. Additional research has yielded the names of the
siblings I didn't know about before of my great-grandmother, Leah Kabakov
Shapiro (1865-1935). Perhaps there are people out there who are descended
from them. I know about descendants of Leah's siblings Ethel and Moshe.
Other siblings were Liba, Bunya, Kushel, Vita, Yossel and Shmerlo.
They were all the children of Avraham and Pessya Kabakov who lived in
Kanichi on the border today of Belarus with Russia, but the parents
originated apparently in Igumen.

Also, I assume Kushel = Yekusiel, Shmerlo = Shmaryahu, Vita = ?? and Bunya =
[I was told it is a Yiddish form of TOVA, though possibly with a Spanish
connection to Buena, but what about the male name "Bunim"]. Perhaps Vita =
Chaim [Life/Vida]
I am beginning to think that the Kabakovs had originally been Sephardim
either >from Spain or the Turkish empire who moved into the Belarus area.
However, this did not show up in my FTDNA or Ancestry test, which I would
think it should have!

Thanks,

I expect the name was Americanized...and presents many possibilities...I began

1920census: Sam GRESUCH 33 (1886) alien, immigrated 1907, painter,
with Rose and children. One clue is that BIL Ben Brucker is also a

1930census:a second possibility is Sam and Fanny GRUSH in 1930 Bronx,
immigrated 1900 naturalized; Sam is 50 (born 1880) Russian.
Also found
1930census Samuel GRATCH 51(1879)Russia immigrated 1902, undertaker

born April 1879Russia, immigrated 1901New York, naturalized 1906 in
Chicago. In 1921 daughter Mollie married Arthur Mandel.

Further to my posting regarding identity and confirmation of a Rabbi
Yosef of Breznitz whose wife was a descendant of Sprintze, daughter of
Rav Naftali KATZ , (a.k.a. the Smichat Chachamim) great grandson of
the Mahara"l.
I had written that other descendants of Sprintze who seem to be
siblings of the above Yosef's unnamed wife, are the TIKTIN rabbinical
family. I should have written the TAUBES and GUTSTEIN families.

Rav Yosef of Breznitz's son seems to have gone under the name
ROSENBAUM (or variant of). The son, my direct ancestor was a Rav.
Yisrael of Ostrov. One of his sons, also Yosef married into the family

In my ancestral to the Mahara"l and the Maharsha"l there is
,supposedly a certain Rabbi in the city(town?) of Breznitz , I don't
think it the town in Czchoslovakia but further east, first name
probably Yosef. He seems to be the husband of an unnamed descendant
of Rav Naftali KATZ (a.k.a. The Smichat Chachamim) who was a
descendant of the Mahara"l. Published trees have Rabbi Yosef (or his
wife's) siblings listed (a Shmuel of Rava Ruska and the TIKTIN
rabbinical family) but our line does not appear in published sources.
My time estimate is the latter part of the 18th cent. and possibly
early 19th.

I am trying to identify and confirm who the above couple are (Rabbi
Yosef and/or his wife) and if they were actually descendants of the
Mahara"l and Naftali KATZ as our family lore states.

Prime Minister of Moldova Pavel Philip demanded a plan to restore the Jewish cemetery in Kishinev! #bessarabia

Hi everybody,

I got an interesting information >from Kishinev that Prime Minister of Moldova Pavel Philip visited
Kishinev Jewish cemetery and demanded(!) a plan to restore the Jewish cemetery in Kishinev.
You can see the website, and translate it >from Russian:

https://m.point.md/ru/novosti/obschestvo/pavel-filip-potreboval-razrabotat-plan-po-vosstanovleniiu-evreiskogo-kladbishcha

At first value it looks great, finally the Moldovan government thinks about the Jewish cemetery, Jewish
Heritage, Jewish Museum, etc. even if the goal is to get more tourists, visitors, business to the town.

Let's see what is going to come >from it, and not celebrate it yet.

Here is site about Prime Minister Pavel Philip: https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Pavel_Filip

You may also know that there is United States Commission for the Preservation of America's
Heritage Abroad I think that according to the document of that commission:
https://www.jewishgen.org/bessarabia/files/cemetery/JDCHeritageSitesInMoldova.pdf
and according to the document about the Government of Moldova had to think about it long
time ago?!

Let me know what do you think about it... Do we have any politicians in our group? anyone
who is close to United States Commission for the Preservation of America's Heritage Abroad
who can explain what that Commission is doing since 2010 when the document was written?
