Enhanced search features -- two week free access period #poland

cskydell@...
 

Folks,

At the IAJGS conference in Las Vegas, the JewishGen presentation wowed
attendees with the newest search features developed by our behind the
scenes team of magicians. These new advanced search features for the All
Country Databases are truly awesome and will continue to be available to
everybody in a final two week demonstration period ending August
14th. These new features include all of the following:

* You can search by a specific Given Name (first name), as well as
Surname (last name), Town Name, and full-text search.

* You can filter searches by geographic regions and sub-regions such as
gubernia or district.

* You can specify search criteria for each field and use a "sounds
like" feature.

* You can filter searches for data updated since a specific
date.

* You can search in the JOWBR Cemetery Database by Given Names which
allows you to find tombstones which don't contain a surname! Try it
at http://www.jewishgen.org/databases/Cemetery/

* You can combine multiple search criteria, using Boolean AND/OR
searches. For example, you can search for all persons whose surname sounds
like "Katz" and first name Starts-With "Abr". Or you can search for family
groups containing a particular set of given names, within a particular town.
And that's only a partial list of all that has been added! You
might want to read the full announcement on line at
http://www.jewishgen.org/JewishGen/pr/2005July.htm In addition, it's
probably best to visit the All Country Databases yourself to try out the
newest capabilities offered to all. You'll find them at
http://www.jewishgen.org/databases

The last three features listed above will be available only to those who
qualify for value-added services after August 14th so be sure to try them
before the cut off date.

While we never subtract anything >from basic search and use capabilities
which always have been, and will continue to be available to all
researchers, the value-added service is our way of saying thank you to
those who provide financial support and help us pay the bills for all the
programs and projects we offer as a public service.

After August 14th the last three enhanced search features currently freely
available to all in this open demonstration period will be restricted to
those who make annual contributions of $100 or more to the JewishGen
General Fund. We encourage all researchers to try them out and see if
they are worthy of your financial support. If you have already donated
this year, but less than the $100 minimum you can make the additional
donation necessary to become eligible for the value-added services
program. Value-added services currently consist of additional e-mail
addresses for use within JewishGen and the JGFFAlert which notifies you via
e-mail if someone adds a listing to the JGFF that could be a potential
match to your own.

If after trying out the new features, you feel they are valuable to you,
then please go
to http://www.jewishgen.org/JewishGen-erosity/
and select the JewishGen General Fund. Remember, the cutoff date for free
access to the new and enhanced searching is August 14th.

Here's hoping you find them useful!

MODERATOR'S NOTE: Just a reminder that Jewish Records Indexing-Poland
is an independent organization whose database, website and discussion
group are hosted by JewishGen. These enhanced search features will
continue to be available to all on the JRI-Poland database as long
as the JewishGen resources are able to handle the search load.

contribute to JewishGen at the "value-added" level, as Carol indicates.

Translation of Hebrew Lettering on Great Grandfather's Headstone (ViewMate 6580) #unitedkingdom

Paul A. Auerbach
 

Genners,

I just received and posted on ViewMate a picture of the gravestone of my
great-great grandfather, Alexander Pelican, who is buried in Plashet Jewish
Cemetery in East Ham, London.

http://data.jewishgen.org/viewmate/ALL/viewmateview.asp?key=6580

I would really appreciate it if someone could translate and/or explain the
significance of the Hebrew lettering on the stone. I can make out his
father's name, Yakov, but I'm having trouble with the rest of it.

Please reply directly to me at PAuerbach@yahoo.com.

Thanks very much for your help.

Dates in Revision Lists #lithuania

sbloom@...
 

Hello all,

Perhaps this had been discussed, and if so, please feel free to respond to
me privately, so as to avoid redundancy. I have had trouble interpreting
dates listed in the Revision Lists.

For instance, often in the "Age this" or "age last" section, I will see an
exact date. Often, but not always, if this is the case, the comments later
on say "died in Salakas" or "born in Riga." In those cases, is it right to
assume that the date is the date of the life event commented upon? It seems
to be consistent with that, but I thought it just be the date that a clerk
passed trhough the records, or whatever.

Also, is there a way to know which was the last revision date that applied
to a particular person? One of the last columns seems to have a date
(year), which I always assumed to be the last revision, but then I saw
other dates, such as the ones mentioned above, that are clearly many years
after the date (year) in that column. This could be a very important clue
as to whether some folks listed really are my family---for instance, if
they are clearly listed in census that occurred decades before I thought
they were born, then I can probably assume it is the wrong family, etc.

I can provide more details to anyone who would like to discuss the issue
more.

Enhanced Search Features- two week free access period #poland

Jrbaston
 

Folks,

At the IAJGS conference in Las Vegas, the JewishGen presentation wowed
attendees with the newest search features developed by our behind the
scenes team of magicians. These new advanced search features for the All
Country Databases are truly awesome and will continue to be available to
everybody in a final two week demonstration period ending August
14th. These new features include all of the following:

* You can search by a specific Given Name (first name), as well as
Surname (last name), Town Name, and full-text search.

* You can filter searches by geographic regions and sub-regions such as
gubernia or district.

* You can specify search criteria for each fieldand use a "sounds
like" feature.

* You can filter searches for data updated since a specific
date.

* You can search in the JOWBR Cemetery Database by Given Names which
allows you to find tombstones which don't contain a surname! Try it
at http://www.jewishgen.org/databases/Cemetery/

* You can combine multiple search criteria, using Boolean AND/OR
searches. For example, you can search for all persons whose surname sounds
like "Katz" and first name Starts-With "Abr". Or you can search for family
groups containing a particular set of given names, within a particular town.
And that's only a partial list of all that has been added! You might
want to read the full announcement online at
http://www.jewishgen.org/JewishGen/pr/2005July.htm In addition, it's
probably best to visit the All Country Databases yourself to try out the
newest capabilities offered to all. You'll find them at
http://www.jewishgen.org/databases

The last three features listed above will be available only to those who
qualify for value-added services after August 14th so be sure to try them
before the cut off date.

While we never subtract anything >from basic search and use capabilities
which always have been, and will continue to be available to all
JewishGenners, the value-added service is our way of saying thank you to
those who provide financial support and help us pay the bills for all the
programs and projects we offer as a public service.

After August 14th the last three enhanced search features currently freely
available to all in this open demonstration period will be restricted to
those who make annual contributions of $100 or more to the JewishGen
General Fund. We encourage all JewishGenners to try them out and see if
they are worthy of your financial support. If you have already donated
this year, but less than the $100 minimum you can make the additional
donation necessary to become eligible for the value-added services
program. Value-added services currently consist of additional e-mail
addresses for use within JewishGen and the JGFFAlert which notifies you via
e-mail if someone adds a listing to the JGFF that could be a potential=20
match to your own.

If after trying out the new features, you feel they are valuable to you,
then please go to http://www.jewishgen.org/JewishGen-erosity/
and select the JewishGen General Fund. Remember, the cutoff date for free
access to the new and enhanced searching is August 14th.

http://www.jewishgen.org/databases

The last three features listed above will be available only to those who
qualify for value-added services after August 14th so be sure to try them
before the cut off date.

While we never subtract anything >from basic search and use capabilities
which always have been, and will continue to be available to all
JewishGenners, the value-added service is our way of saying thank you to
those who provide financial support and help us pay the bills for all the
programs and projects we offer as a public service.

After August 14th the last three enhanced search features currently freely
available to all in this open demonstration period will be restricted to
those who make annual contributions of $100 or more to the JewishGen
General Fund. We encourage all JewishGenners to try them out and see if
they are worthy of your financial support. If you have already donated
this year, but less than the $100 minimum you can make the additional
donation necessary to become eligible for the value-added services
program. Value-added services currently consist of additional e-mail
addresses for use within JewishGen and the JGFFAlert which notifies you via
e-mail if someone adds a listing to the JGFF that could be a potential=20
match to your own.

If after trying out the new features, you feel they are valuable to you,
then please go to http://www.jewishgen.org/JewishGen-erosity/
and select the JewishGen General Fund. Remember, the cutoff date for free
access to the new and enhanced searching is August 14th.

JewishGen Enhanced Search Features- two week free access period #austria-czech

Carol W. Skydell <cwskydell@...>
 

Folks,
At the IAJGS conference in Las Vegas, the JewishGen presentation wowed
attendees with the newest search features developed by our behind the
scenes team of magicians. These new advanced search features for the All
Country Databases are truly awesome and will continue to be available to
everybody in a final two week demonstration period ending August
14th. These new features include all of the following:
* You can search by a specific Given Name (first name), as well as
Surname (last name), Town Name, and full-text search.
* You can filter searches by geographic regions and sub-regions such as
gubernia or district.
* You can specify search criteria for each field .and use a "sounds
like" feature.
* You can filter searches for data updated since a specific
date.
* You can search in the JOWBR Cemetery Database by Given Names which
allows you to find tombstones which don't contain a surname! Try it at
http://www.jewishgen.org/databases/Cemetery/
* You can combine multiple search criteria, using Boolean AND/OR
searches. For example, you can search for all persons whose surname sounds
like "Katz" and first name Starts-With "Abr". Or you can search for family
groups containing a particular set of given names, within a particular town.
And that's only a partial list of all that has been added! You might want
to read the full announcement on line at

Podhordisz in Galacia #galicia

Dorothy Harper <dorothyharper17@...>
 

I have found my husband's grandfather's immigration manifest in 1898, Ellis
Island where he says he is >from Podhorndiszere, the closest I can get is
Podhordisz in Tarnapol? Lvov?

I tried googling the town and came upon yiskor and memorium data, however I
am at a loss as to the exact name of the town and if I can get other
information on this town. The surname Hochberg is on the list of surnames,
I just don't know how to continue with this.

If anyone can lead me in the right direction, I would appreciate it.

Re: PROPPER and TAUSSIG families from Laun/Louny, Bohemia #austria-czech

Ron Herrmann <ron_herrmann@...>
 

Celia writes "Georgia [Haken] will be excited to hear that in the whole of
Bohemia in 1793, apart >from Prague, there is only one PROPPER listed. "

Well, my family has PROPPERs and they are >from Jungfer-Teinitz (Panensky Tynec)
in Bohemia.

I already spoke with Georgia, a year ago, about that but we could not find a
connection between my family and her family.

Here are the PROPPERs in my family:
- Wilhelm PROPPER >from Jungfer-Teinitz (Panensky Tynec) marries Wilhelmine
Kohn. No dates.
- One daughter is Leopoldine PROPPER. She's my g-g-grandmother. She marries
Ignaz Isak ABELES.
- One of their children, Regina ABELES, born August 14, 1873, in Bilina, is
my g-grandmother.

Georgia also has Leopold(s) and Wilhelms(s) in her family tree, including
women with those feminized names (e.g. Leopoldine), so most likely we are
related.

Unfortunately, my family does not have any many records about the PROPPER/ABELES
branch because my grandmother, Else Leah ROBTISCHEK, daughter of Regina
ABELES and Maxmilian ROBITSCHEK, had a terrible relation with her parents
and she left all records about her parents in the Czech Republic before she
literarily ran away >from the Czech Republic to Palestine before the Nazis
arrived.

Introduction - OFNER, ZENKER, FISCHL #austria-czech

Sue Isman & Dennis Berg <ismanberg@...>
 

Hello All,

I thought I would take the opportunity to introduce myself. My name is
Sue ISMAN and I live in Potomac, Maryland, USA. Unfortunately, this
branch of my family is very small and I don't have a lot of information,
but I suppose you never know when a connection might pop up!

My great-great grandfather was Gottlieb ZENKER. He was born in Prague
in 1860. He had 3 brothers (that I know of), Marcus ZENKER, born 1863,
Fred ZENKER born 1868, and Edward ZENKER, born 1872. I believe they
were also all born in Prague.

I don't know their parents first names, but I do know their mother's
maiden name was FISCHL. When Gottlieb came to the US in 1878, he went
to live with his mother's brother, Joseph FISCHL.

Gottlieb married Minna OFNER. Minna was born in 1864 in Prague. She
arrived in the US in 1881 and they married in 1883 in New York. Minna's
parents were Fishel OFNER and Anna OFNER. Yes, OFNER was Anna's maiden
name too. They were cousins that married. As far as I know, they were
also both born in Prague, but I have no documentation to back that up.

That's all I know. If by some remote chance this rings a bell with
anyone, please jump up and let me know.

Thanks,

Sue ISMAN
