Update on AGAD Project - Indexing Kosow Records #poland

Mark Halpern
 

Four and a half years ago, Stanley Diamond announced a project to index
the Jewish vital records for 87 Eastern Galician towns housed at the
AGAD Archive in Warsaw. Through the efforts of the Town Leaders and many
Galicianer researchers who contributed to these town projects, 78 of the
87 towns have been fully or partially indexed.

Kosow/Kossow/Kosov, located at coordinates 4819, 2506, is one of the 9
towns that has not been indexed. Kosow is located only 15 miles SSE of
Kolomyja and 14 miles SW of Zablotow. The following records are housed
at the AGAD Archives and are available for indexing.

Births 1868-1892, 1896-1900
Marriages 1877-1891
Deaths 1877-1886, 1892-1903

In order to index these records we need the help of all Kosow
researchers and those researching nearby towns.

Based on a sampling of birth records >from the Kosow registers, the
following towns are all mentioned many times: Manastyrsko, Kosow Stary,
Wiznitz, Moskalowka, Wierzbowiec, Kuty, Kolomyja, Zablotow, Pistyn ,
Sniatyn, Jablonow, Smodna, Chomczyn, Jaworow, Sokolowka.

The most popular surnames in this sampling of birth records were:
STEINER, KAMIL, KRUMBEIN, FROHLICH, VOGEL, LEIDER, FEIGER, FINDER,
KRAMER, KLAU, KLEIN, ROMER, DRESNER, GERTNER, STETTNER, DRUKER, ERNST,
MAJER, PRIESEL, TANENZAPF, WAGNER, SCHIRN, SCHNEIDER, BLEIWEISS,
MUHLBAUER, ENGLER, KRAUTHAMER, MERBAUM

The estimated cost to complete indexing of the Kosow records and make
all the indices available to those with connections to the towns and
Surnames that I have identified is $1,837.

For more information on the Kosow project, please contact Town Leader
Sharon Singer at sharon@....

You can help ensure the indexing of Kosow records. Please give a
contribution to the AGAD Kosow project. Information on contributing is

Yizkor Book Project for April 2005 #lodz #poland

Joyce Field
 

Because of the Pesach holiday, April 2005 was a "short" month and our
production reflects that. One new book and 14 updated books went
online. All translations can be accessed at
http://www.jewishgen.org/Yizkor/translations.html and the current
additions have been flagged to make the search easier.

I would like to remind all new researchers that you can find whether
a yizkor book has been written about a particular town at the Yizkor
Book Database, http://www.jewishgen.org/Yizkor/database.html. You
can search the Necrology Index at
http://www.jewishgen.org/databases/yizkor/. Our index to this
database says the following:


"The JewishGen Yizkor Book Necrology Database indexes the names of
persons in the necrologies -- the lists of Holocaust martyrs --
published in the Yizkor Books appearing on the JewishGen Yizkor Book
Translation Project. This database is only an index of names; it
directs researchers back to the Yizkor Book itself, where more
complete information may be available.

This database allows the surnames to be searched via soundex.
Because most of these names were transliterated >from Hebrew and
Yiddish, the spellings of the surnames may not be as you are used to
seeing them in Latin-alphabet sources."

This database currently contains over 165,000 entries >from the
necrologies of 177 different yizkor books. Remember that not all
yizkor books have necrologies.

New book:

"With a rifle in my hand and Eretz Israel in my heart" by Dov Levin,
http://www.jewishgen.org/Yizkor/dovlevin1/dovlevin1.html.

Updated books:

-Belchatow, Poland, http://www.jewishgen.org/Yizkor/Belchatow/Belchatow.html
-Belchatow, Poland,
http://www.jewishgen.org/Yizkor/Belchatow_ann/Belchatow_ann.html

-Brest, Belarus, volume 2
-Bukowina book
-Chelm, Poland
-Czestochowa, Poland,
http://www.jewishgen.org/Yizkor/Czestochowa1/Czestochowa1.html
-Holocaust in Belarus
-Jewish Music in Poland between the World Wars
-Maramures Region
-Novogrudok, Belarus
-Nowy Sacz, Poland
-Radomsko, Poland
-Shumskoye, Ukraine

As always, we wish to thank all the donors of material and the
project coordinators for their donations of translations and their
precious time. Nothing can be accomplished without your interest in
the Yizkor Book Project. We are always interested in new material
and look forward to hearing >from researchers wanting to start a new
translation project.

Naming a son after a brother? #general

Leslie Weinberg <artsoul@...>
 

Thanks once again to the tireless efforts of JRI-Poland, I have the name
of my grandfather's nephew, but there is something very strange here.
The son, born four months after the civil marriage (I guess I have to
assume there was a religious marriage earlier?) has the name Mozes,
which also happens to be the name of her own brother. My grandfather
had two siblings by my great-grandfather's second marriage, Hene and
Mozes. I know Mozes lived through the War (he was in a camp in Italy, I
was told, and came to the U.S. after the War on the ship which docked in
upstate NY). and I remember meeting him as a child. Why would a Jew
from Galicia name a son after a brother?

Slovakian Jewry - emigration patterns? #general

AK <alan.kolnik@...>
 

It appears that it is possible that my family, or at least my family name,
originated in Slovakia, in an area about 50 miles NE of Bratislava, and
about the same distance NW of Nitra, in a village called Hrachoviste (today,
pop. about 660, I believe). There are many people living there and from
there in the US with the last name "KOLNIK", who are NOT Jewish. However,
as far as we know, the Jewish family with our last name is only found in the
Pinsk-Minsk area (Luninetz and Kozhanhorodok, specifically, in what was
Poland to WWII and Belarus today), and Horodenka (which at one point, like
Slovakia, was part of the Austor Hungarian Empire). We have discovered a
record of a Kolnik in Hrachoviste as far back as 1702. JewishGEn also shows
researchers investigating their roots in villages close by, like Krajne.

Has anyone traced possible emigration patterns of jews out of Slovakia -
where did they go, and when, if at all?

Re: The familianten law in Moravia #austria-czech

Michael Gordy
 

I too am very interested in the status of Familiaten books in Moravia,
so appreciated Henry Wellisch's informative note. Noting that
Familianten records are NOT mentioned in Hugo Gold's summary of the
Brno archive holdings, Mr Wellisch concluded:
The present status of the Familianten books for Moravia is not clear and as
I see it, the only way to find out more about this problem is to do some
research in Moravia.
I have a special interest in the town of Straznice, near Hodonin in
south Moravia -- in fact, I visited Straznice last weekend! While
there, I bought the book "Straznice: Kapitoly z Dejin Mesta," edited
by Jiri Pajer (the noted town historian, who also serve as the caretaker
of the wonderful Jewish cemetery). The book contains a long chapter
by Jaroslav Klenovsky on the Jewish community. As the book is entirely
in Czech, I can't read it to any meaningful degree, but I do spot a
footnote that might possibly pertain to Familianten records:
"Soupis familiantu zidovske obce ve Straznici z roku 1832,
MZA Brno, pobocka Kromeriz, fond F 90 Velkostatek Straznice,
karton 204."

Regardless of whether this footnote does pertain, Mr Klenovsky might
be able to shed some light on the Brno holdings.

For those who share my interest in Straznice: Please contact me!
I have collected some interesting information on this trip that I
will be pleased to share as I find time to write it all down.

Gorzkow, LU - Zamosc PSA project. #general

Kirsten Gradel <kmgradel@...>
 

To family historians with interests in the Zamosc-Lublin area of Poland.

Jewish Records Indexing-Poland is pleased to announce that we have just
received the first ever indexes >from the Polish State Archives(PSA) in
Zamosc and Lublin for the unfilmed Gorzkow years: Births, Marriages 1876,
1892-1894, 1897-1903; Deaths 1876, 1884, 1892-1894, 1897-1903, in all 386
entries.

Gorzkow is one of smaller towns in the Zamosc-Lublin area, located 46 km
SE of Lublin at latitude/longitude 5057/2301 and it had in 1921 a Jewish
population of 434. Nearest towns with Jewish records for which there may
be family names similar to those in Gorzkow are Krasnystaw,
Izbica/Tarnogora, Zolkiewka, Turobin.

In the years to come we will receive new indexes as they are transferred
from Gorzkow City Archives(USC) to Zamosc PSA after 100 years. The years
available at USC are BMD 1904-38!

The most common surnames in the present PSA file, found 5 or more times,
are the following:

BERGAJZEN, BLANK, BRANDT, CHOCHMAN, DIAMENT, DYAMENT, EDELSZTAJN, ERLICH,
FLIKER, FRANK, GARDEN, GEJLER, GELFMAN, GERSZENZON, GOCHMAN, GOLDBAUM,
KERSZENBAUM, KORN, LAJST, OJRECHMAN, PULWER, SZTOKGAMER, SZWARC, WAJC,
WAJS, WEBERSZPIL, ZAJDWEBER, ZALCMAN, ZYMERMAN.

The Zamosc PSA project includes 24 towns with records in Zamosc State
Archives and for all 24 towns we have now received files which takes us
into the early years of the 20th century!

Most of the filmed records for the 24 towns are also indexed, and we are
well on our way to complete what remains. I think I can promise that by
the end of 2005 the filmed years >from 1826 on will be indexed for all 24
towns.

As you all know the filmed years are indexed by volunteers and donated to
JRI-Poland for all to search. The first 30 years, 1826-55, of the filmed
Gorzkow records are indexed and have been live in the JRI-Poland database
since July 2004. The rest will follow later this year.

If you want to know more about JRI-Poland goals or to know if/or how many
times your family names appear in the PSA records, please contact me.

My best regards, I hope to hear >from some Gorzkow researchers,

The Zamosc PSA project includes 24 towns with records in Zamosc State
Archives and for all 24 towns we have now received files which takes us
into the early years of the 20th century!

Most of the filmed records for the 24 towns are also indexed, and we are
well on our way to complete what remains. I think I can promise that by
the end of 2005 the filmed years >from 1826 on will be indexed for all 24
towns.

As you all know the filmed years are indexed by volunteers and donated to
JRI-Poland for all to search. The first 30 years, 1826-55, of the filmed
Gorzkow records are indexed and have been live in the JRI-Poland database
since July 2004. The rest will follow later this year.

If you want to know more about JRI-Poland goals or to know if/or how many
times your family names appear in the PSA records, please contact me.

My best regards, I hope to hear >from some Gorzkow researchers,

Krasnystaw, LU - Zamosc PSA project, JRI-Poland #general

Kirsten Gradel <kmgradel@...>
 

To researchers with family interests in the Zamosc -Lublin area in Poland.

Jewish Records Indexing-Poland is pleased to announce that we have just
received the first ever indexes >from the Polish State Archives(PSA) in
Zamosc and Lublin for the unfilmed Krasnystaw years 1861-67, 1871-72,
1878-1904, in all 4827 entries indexed by the JRI-Poland team.

Furthermore I am proud to inform you that all the Jewish records filmed by
the Mormons for Krasnystaw are now indexed, 2024 entries with parents'
names and mothers' maiden names when noted. This database covers BMD
1826-29, BD 1830, BMD 1833, BD 1834-35, BMD 1836, MD 1837, BMD 1844-60,
BMD 1868-70, 1873-77. Parts of these files are already live, updates and
remaining years will be published in the near future.


Krasnystaw is one of bigger towns in the Zamosc-Lublin area, located 52 km
SE of Lublin at latitude/longitude 50 59/23 11 and it had in 1921 a Jewish
population of 1754. Nearest towns with Jewish records for which there may
be family names similar to those in Krasnystaw are Gorzkow,
Izbica/Tarnogora, Zolkiewka.

In the years to come we will receive new indexes as they are transferred
from Krasnystaw City Archives(USC) to Zamosc PSA after 100 years. The
years available at USC are B 1905-1933, 1937. M 1905-18, 1920-39.
D1905-31, 1933, 1937-41.

The most common surnames in the present PSA file, found more than 15
times, are the following:

24 towns have records in Zamosc State Archives and we have now for all 24
towns received files which include the first years of the 20th century.

Also most of the filmed records for the 24 towns are indexed, and we are
well on our way to complete what remains. I think it is safe to promise
that by the end of 2005 the filmed years >from 1826 on will be indexed for
all 24 towns.

If you want to know more about the Zamosc PSA project or to know if/or how
many times your family names appear in the PSA records, please contact me.
