Detailed maps of (galicia) Southern Poland, Northern Hungary #galicia

phylliskramer1@...
 

I stumbled upon these Polish maps on a Lemko site.
They are high resolution maps of the southeastern
corner of poland...and a little of ukraine (so lots of
the ex-galician area). The site says the maps were
recently released for public use by the headquarters
of the Polish Army. They are full color and terribly
exciting....as you can see your shtetls and the surrounding
areas quite clearly.

They are fairly large at 300KB, but certainly worth downloading!!
I intend to put some on my shtetlinks sites for Krosno Jaslo
Rymanow Zmigrod Dukla Korczna Frysztak Strzyzow and Jaslo .

Cancellation of publication plans #galicia

Suzan & Ron Wynne <srwynne@...>
 

Many readers have asked me about when my book, Finding Your Jewish Roots in
Galicia: A Resource Guide will be back in print. Gary Mokotoff, publisher of
Avotaynu, had agreed to publish a substantially revised edition, but after
many months of delay, he notified me today that he had decided not to move
ahead with the new edition.

I will be searching for a new publisher and will consider publishing and
distributing it myself. I'd welcome any ideas about publishers that might be
interested. Please contact me privately.

After 1906, all naturalizations were in the federal district court. You
need to find the archives of the district court in Albany (nearest NARA
branch -- either Pittsfield or Varick St. in Manhattan, I would assume) and
ask them for the naturalization petition. In the petition file, there will
also be a certificate showing the ship on which he arrived. Many NARA
branches have the ship manifests, whcih will show, among other things,
nearest relative left behind in the old country. Both of these documents
will be interesting to you!!
This is very interesting to me. I had been led to believe that
naturalizations were done in county courts as well, even after 1906.
Is this my misunderstanding? I have sought the natuaralization of my
pgf in the records of the pertinent county courts (Essex and Hudson
counties, in NJ) without success; have I been barking up the wrong
tree? That's easy to do >from this distance.

My tentative conclusion had been that he was not, in fact naturalized,
although he was telling census enumerators >from 1910 that he was a
citizen.

My recently devised "Plan B" is to get his 1929 passport application
from the State Department, as I know that he travelled abroad in that
year. Would that application contain information verifying his claim
of citizenship, so that I could find his petition for naturalization,
and learn when and on what vessel he arrived in the US in 1898? I have
searched for this thoroughly, but in vain, at NARA in Washington, as
records for that time, so I am told at NARA, were destroyed.

Re: Pamela Furmidge's Family Mystery #hungary

Pamela Furmidge <pamela.furmidge@...>
 

Thank you for your reply. It is definitely one and the same Martin Heller.
Perhaps I should have explained that there were two mothers (both English)
involved - the three sons were my mother's half brothers. My grandfather
travelled a lot "on business" and moved between UK and Europe.

Unfortunately, a lot of my mother's papers were lost during World War II,
when her house was bombed. Quite a brick wall!

Pamela Furmidge is trying to reasearch her grandfather
and his family.

I think your family mystery lies with your mother. If
you can locate her birth record, probably in the city
of Arad records then I think you will have your
grandfather's proper name.

Was your mother in the Heller grandfather's will who
died in 1928? I am sure you must have thought about
the interesting fact that the "grandfather" you found
had children in the U.K. in 1905 and fathered your
mother in Hungary in 1911 and possibly other children
and still supposedly living and finally being buried
in the UK in 1928. Could you be loooking at two
different Hellers?

I suspect that you must have carefully looked through
your mother's papers for birth records, travel
documents, immigration papers, etc. In any case if
she was born in Arad in 1911 her birth had to
registered with the authorities in Arad and her father
and mother's names were also recorded. This should be
your best bet for finding your grandfather's proper
name.

Re: 1869 Census #hungary

That's fine, the search by town should also work, and
it should work with either Hungarian or Slovak names
and give the reference for all films for the town.

Most records for 1869 are not principally catalogued
by town, but by County.
It is not difficult to enter a County name (Nyitra
here) into the "place
search" which will bring up a list of Nyitra places,
the first of which has
no sub-listing (Hungary, Nyitra). Clicking on that
link brings up three
county-wide records, one of which is the 1869
Census. Clicking on that
link, and then on "show film notes" brings up the
624 entries for places on
the films. One has to sort through them (unless you
can take a short cut by
knowing the Slovakian district (Jaras) to move
around faster).

Anyone can find the six listings for Ersekujvar/Nove

alphabetically by Hungarian town name within each
Jaras and have the current
Slovakian name appended)):

Searching: GNISHER & FINKLESTEIN families #lithuania

Michael Trapunsky <trapunsky@...>
 

Hi all,

Earlier I posted a search for my KANTOR family >from Paberze and Vilna.

I have some more information on one of the families in case it helps.

Hirsch KANTOR (dates unknown) married Chana (maiden name unknown) and they
had: Hertz, Meir, Tzippy and Fruma.

Fruma's children were:
1- Hertzig GNISHER - who had a son Hirsch

2- Meir Henoch FINKLESTEIN - married Shaina (maiden name unknown) and had:
Simcha Gemida, Kayla, Esther, Chana, Hirsch & Matei

3- Malkah

4- Sarah

Given that I have 2 different surnames for Fruma's sons, I'm not sure what
Malkah's and Sarah's surname was. I guess it's possible that Fruma had 2
husbands or that one of the sons changed their surname.

I would love to hear back >from anyone who might possibly know of a
connection or anything at all about these families.

Thank you very much,
