I've looked over the current offerings, which are mostly German so far - if
they'd been mostly Polish, I'd have been up a creek.

First, one must realize that this is not the University of Wroclaw's site,
but that of the **Technical** University. The listings are in line with
this - they're all science, engineering & architecture titles. One cannot
expect that they'll be digitizing holdings [if they have them] outside these
areas any time soon - it's just not the scope of this institution.

Also, I note >from a Festschrift that's online already, the TU was founded in
1910. Therefore, its holdings can't be expected to have the depth of older
institutions-- most of the top research libraries in US universities are
considerably older than this.

All this said, there are a few items items of peripheral interest to
genealogists - a book on the architecture & history of buildings in the
Ring/Rynek in Breslau/Wroclaw, and a book on "recent" buildings in
Opeln/Opole.

Dear Jack,
the contemporary German zip code book has at least 9 major entries for
Neunkirchen plus a few more for smaller places. If you want to have
success with your research you should try to indicate in what area of
Germany your Neunkirchen could most likely be. With kind regards

A good source for information on synagogues and other Jewish organizations

This site, sponsored by COJONC (the Council of Jewish Organizations

Here we are folks, on JewishGen's bulletin board. Someone asks for a
map of the ukraine to locate 3 towns.

Well, we have the greatest shtetl locator available ... the JewishGen
Shtetlseeker....just go there, click on "find towns", enter your town
and the country....(soundex is built in)..and voila...3 ways to view
the maps...(i prefer mapquest)...

www.jewishgen.org/shtetlseeker

and one wonderful tool too....you wont find this on any other map!
Jot down the latitude/longitude of your main shtetl....put that into
your next search and the ShtetlSeeker will tell you the distance
between the 2 towns!! so you'll know if you are in the right area.

good news for Mielec researchers #galicia

Renee Steinig <rsteinig@...>
 

As Town Leader for the town of Mielec for JRI - Poland (Jewish
Records Indexing-Poland), I am happy to share some good news
for Mielec researchers.

Approximately 5,000 Mielec records in the Rzeszow branch of
the Polish State Archives have been indexed for JRI - Poland,
including census listings, army draft entries, and vital
records. The Archives also reports the discovery of
3,000-3,500 additional records, which we hope can be indexed
in the future.

If you would like more information on these records, please
let me know, and I will be glad to send details.

Passengers on the Baloeran ex Rotterdam Feb 18 1939 #poland

Geoff Kaiser <geoff_kaiser@...>
 

Dear Researchers,

The web site below enables a search of passengers and dutch ships. As many
of our ancestors fled Europe by this means you may find it useful source of
records.

http://d-compu.dyndns.org/Passagiers/default.asp

I have recently obtained a list of passengers on the Baloeran that departed
from Rotterdam on Feb 18 1939 to various destinations including Port Said
and others on the way to Batavia. My grandparents were on this vessel as
the first leg of their escape >from Germany to Australia.
I have studied the list and identified what I believe to be other Jewish
names. I have listed these below. Anyone with an interest in these names
or other aspects of this list are welcome to contact me for more details.
I may have missed some or included ones that are not of Jewish heritage as
well.
