TORTEN, Lvov/Podhajce-University of Lvov #poland

Pamela Weisberger <pweisberger@...>
 

Does anyone have information about the surname TORTEN >from Galicia....or
specifically:

SARAH TORTEN who was born between 1895 and 1900 in Podhajce or Lwow.

She went to the University of Lwow around 1920 to 1928 and studied
chemistry (or pharmacy) and most likely obtained a doctorate degree.
She had two sisters who also went to the University of Lwow. Both
graduated as M.D.s.

The older named ETHEL TORTEN was a student >from about 1916 till
graduation. In 1929 she moved to the USA and practiced medicine in
New York for many years.

The younger named CHAJA (Haya) graduated few years later and practiced
medicine in Podhajce till she was exterminated in the Holocaust. Her
married name was KRESSEL. Her husband and two children were killed in
1941. She continued in her medical practice until 1944 and was killed
on her way to Tarnopol.

I am researching on behalf of SARAH TORTEN's nephew, Michael Torten of
Israel, who is trying to discover his aunt's married name and her fate
and the fate of her children.

If this information (or surname and associated towns) sound familiar to
anyone please contact me privately. If you know of any student records
that still exist--or can be accessed-->from the University in Lvov--please
share that information, as that would be a useful genealogical resource
for all.

Thank you!

Discussion about vital records #poland

Pamela Weisberger <pweisberger@...>
 

In recent messages to the Gesher Galicia Discussion Group, both Mark
Halpern and Alex Sharon make excellent points regarding the information
indexed by JRI-Poland archivists >from the AGAD vital records:

As Mark writes, they "... capture all the information that is requested as
part of the JRI-Poland template."

and as Alex writes:

"I am also not certain if AGAD personnel add any remarks (beside assigned to
them the standard spreadsheet columns) that may appear on the documents."

Both of these statements are true and make sense.

Although there ARE often extensive handwritten notes in the "comments"
section of these birth, marriage and death records, they are not normally
part of the Excel template, nor should they be. The time required for
translating what is often an entire paragraph, perhaps written in German
Gothic script (as in one of my ancestral records)--and microscopic Gothic
script at that!--would not be cost-effective...or even necessary as it
conveys information that falls beyond the basic requirements of an index.

The purpose of the index is to provide the simple "facts" of the vital
record--as they were originally written--which is why one should always
send for the actual copy so that one may discover other hidden gems
lurking in the margins of the record book.

In my case, there was information about how the family who worked on the
estate of a landowner was moved >from one town to another, and on what dates
(in Roman numerals).

In another, an infants' death record for my surname, listed under "NN" (for
no name/not named) and "stillbirth" actually showed in the comments section
that the child had lived for seven days, but had not lived long enough to
have a bris and receive a given name.

Other "comments" may provide a wealth of unexpected information for
researchers, including the name of the midwife and witnesses...and the only
way to know what exists is to see the actual record. Even if there is a
slight mispelling in how the archivist entered the information, seeing it
with your own eyes will enable you to correct the record for your own files.

Indexing >from difficult-to-read handwriting is an imprecise art--subject to
interpretation--and these indices should be used as a guide--but not
considered the final or absolute word.

Askin again #usa

Terri Burns <mooneymouse58@...>
 

Thank you so much for your replies. It made my day.
I think I messed up and said that the HITT line was Jewish and it was not.
Thanks for the references and for the insights you shared with me.
I've never had this type of welcome at any other genealogy site.
I can't wait to share them with my friend Holly Strum who referred me to
this site.
I plan to share this info with the Bracken County (KY) Historical Society.
A woman who had researched the Askin line for 20 years and found out she was
dying saw my posting for Askin and I proved to be descended >from an uncle
who left VA with an older brother when KY became a going concern and was
never heard >from again. She was thrilled to fill in what happened to that
last sibling and sent me all her research. I gleaned what I needed, put it
in a huge binder, and then donated it to the above named historical society.
Thank you again.

Re: Seek Jewish roots via ASKIN ancestor #usa

Yekkey@...
 

Hi Terri,

There are several very good books concerning Jewish onomastics in print. My
favorite is "A Dictionary of Jewish Surnames >from the Russian Empire" by
Alexander Beider. He says ASKIN is a diminutive for Esther. In Jewish wanderings
diminutives even of mothers frequently became surnames. The English at the time
could easily have added an "s" to the name.

Another source could be a corruption of ASHKENAZI which means German in
Hebrew and is frequently used as a surname.

Brian Stern recently mentioned the valuable GeoServ Town Locator
Service, saying that this is described at our web site.

The Town Locator Service is provided by the German genealogy web site:

http://www.genealogienetz.de/genealogy.html

A link to this home page is easy to find on the "Resources" page of the
GerSIG web site under "Extensive Links and References".

(If the home page appears in German and you want the
English version look for the "translation" toggle.)

Look for "Place Lookups" and under that heading "GeoServ". For full details
click on the GeoServ link: http://www.genealogienetz.de/misc/geoserv.html

The following brief guide should be noted and saved by all
doing research about families >from Germany:

No Subject Line is needed
Your message text should be only the name of the town you seek spelled
correctly (Example: Wallau)

Within a very short time you will receive a return email message >from a
robot computer.

If you have spelled the town name correctly and such a town exists in
Germany the message will tell you the state (Land), region and county
in which the town is located today.

Also the population, postal code, *** Map Coordinates *** and more.
(The map coordinates can be used with the JewishGen Shtetl seeker
to get you a list of all other towns within X miles or KM of the subject town.)

Example:
Wallau (Taunus)
Part of: Hofheim
GKZ : 06 4 36 007

Moravian Malt Industry #austria-czech

Michael Viktorik, a young researcher >from Olomouc, Moravia, CZ, works
currently on a study about the FUERST malt enterprises in Moravia. The
Fuersts were a Jewish family, whose main factories were in Uherske Hradiste
and Olomouc.

Mr. Viktorik would like to know whether there existed any books on Jewish
industrial enterprises in Bohemia and Moravia during the 19th century and
until 1945. He is specially interested in people who played leading rolls in
such firms (preferably in the malting industry) and in their memoirs. Your
help will be most welcome.
