rovnoye (rivne) records #ukraine

Sheila Toffell
 

This is my first time posting in a very long time, as I did not think I
could find out any more about my Ukraine links. But.. I have now found a
first cousin once removed (her grandfather and my grandmother were
siblings), now living in Israel, but >from Kirovograd. She has told me that
my grandmother's family probably came >from Rovnoye or Rivne, which MS Word
keeps on translating >from her letters as "flat place". I'm assuming it's the
one that is 29 miles >from Kirovograd, just >from what I knew previously, and
what she has told me. Her father, my mother's cousin, was a WW2 Russian
officer MIA when she was a small child. She and her mother subsequently
lived with Mom's parents, and so she knows little about her father's side,
apart >from the fact that they ended up in Odessa after the war. To compound
matters my family had lost contact with her paternal grandfather and assumed
they had perished.

So, I have three questions:

What is the procedure for obtaining post WW2 records >from Odessa?

Is anyone else researching this little town of Rovnoye?

What, if any, records are out there for Rovnoye?


This last is very pertinent, as my cousin has no knowledge of our common
relatives. She has asked me to try and find out if her father had any other
siblings.

Enhanced Search Features- two week free access period #latvia

Elsebeth Paikin
 

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 =B7and 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=92t 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 Jewish-
Genners, 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 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/%A0%A0%A0>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!

Researching: RIEGER, SCHULHOF, STEINER #austria-czech

Gabriela Svatos
 

My RIEGER family originally came >from Sered (near Bratislava), but since the
patriarch Filip RIEGER (m. Eva SCHULHOF) was rather an impoverished baker
with many mouths to feed (he actually supplemented his income by smuggling
tobacco and hiding the goods in the cemetery), many of his children moved to
Vienna to seek their fortune.

My ggm was Rosa RIEGER STEINER, and three of her children were born in
Vienna (Wilma, Irena, and Teresa) before she and her husband Albert STEINER
(bookseller) moved to Zilina in Slovakia. All three daughters perished in
the holocaust, but the youngest son, Dr. Viktor STEINER who was born in
Zilina managed to escape to London prior to the war.

Her brother Dr. Heinrich RIEGER (1868-1942) married Berta KLUG (whose family
also came >from Sered). Her family owned Cafe Westend in Vienna. Dr.
Heinrich and his wife were philanthropists. One of their projects was the
establishment of a Seniors' Home. This is the residence they sought refuge
at the onset of WWII, but they were both deported to Teresienstadt where Dr.
Heinrich died, and Berta was deported further to Auschwitz where she also
perished. Heinrich was a collector of art (esp. Egon SCHIELE). Their
granddaughter Tana TICHO was saved because her father Dr. Fritz TICHO took
her to Palestine. Their son Robert RIEGER escaped to the United States via
France, hiding his daughter Eva for a time in a French convent until their
travel arrangements/papers were finalized.

Another brother was Jakob RIEGER who died of cancer in Vienna in 1941. His
son Philipp was in Dachau prior to the war, but his fiancee (later his
wife), managed to secure his release by obtaining immigration documents for
him to leave for England. Upon the outbreak of the war however, he and his
wife were imprisoned as enemy aliens. I was fortunate to meet them and
their daughter several years ago in Vienna. Jakob RIEGER also had a
daughter named Martha who married an Indian diplomat and later lived in
India. She did not have any children.

There were also two sisters- Julie who married a toolmaker and emigrated in
the 1920's/1930's in search of work to the Soviet Union, and Berta who had a
daughter Lilly LORI, a piano teacher, who survived the war, but left Vienna
with no forwarding address. There may have been other siblings.

Any connections out there? I am looking forward to visiting Vienna, Prague
and Bratislava later this summer and filling in some of those gaps.

My RIEGER family originally came >from Sered (near Bratislava), but since the
patriarch Filip RIEGER (m. Eva SCHULHOF) was rather an impoverished baker
with many mouths to feed (he actually supplemented his income by smuggling
tobacco and hiding the goods in the cemetery), many of his children moved to
Vienna to seek their fortune.

My ggm was Rosa RIEGER STEINER, and three of her children were born in
Vienna (Wilma, Irena, and Teresa) before she and her husband Albert STEINER
(bookseller) moved to Zilina in Slovakia. All three daughters perished in
the holocaust, but the youngest son, Dr. Viktor STEINER who was born in
Zilina managed to escape to London prior to the war.

Her brother Dr. Heinrich RIEGER (1868-1942) married Berta KLUG (whose family
also came >from Sered). Her family owned Cafe Westend in Vienna. Dr.
Heinrich and his wife were philanthropists. One of their projects was the
establishment of a Seniors' Home. This is the residence they sought refuge
at the onset of WWII, but they were both deported to Teresienstadt where Dr.
Heinrich died, and Berta was deported further to Auschwitz where she also
perished. Heinrich was a collector of art (esp. Egon SCHIELE). Their
granddaughter Tana TICHO was saved because her father Dr. Fritz TICHO took
her to Palestine. Their son Robert RIEGER escaped to the United States via
France, hiding his daughter Eva for a time in a French convent until their
travel arrangements/papers were finalized.

Another brother was Jakob RIEGER who died of cancer in Vienna in 1941. His
son Philipp was in Dachau prior to the war, but his fiancee (later his
wife), managed to secure his release by obtaining immigration documents for
him to leave for England. Upon the outbreak of the war however, he and his

It would be a big help to readers of View Mate, if - when posting
photographs to be viewed for identification, - the sender would note the
location at which the photograph was taken. [if known, of course]

Faces may look familiar - the location would narrow down the possibilities.

Thank you.

Stettin is the German name of the Polish city of Szczecin, but it was not
"renamed": this city was historically German (Pomeranian actually), and
was transferred to Poland at the end of WWII. See e.g. the thread
