Civil Record: 2nd Polish Republic Period: Wilenski and Nowogrodzkie #general

Adam Cherson
 

As most of are aware, >from about 1922 to 1939, parts of what we today
call Lithuania, Belarus, and Ukraine were administered by the Second
Polish Republic (here is a map of the territory covered:
https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Second_Polish_Republic#/media/File:PolishRepublicAdminMap1930.png).
[or https://tinyurl.com/y8qz6hbt --Mod.]
My question is about the civil records
pertaining to this period. Since answers may vary depending on location,
I am most interested in the provinces (aka voivodeships) called Wilenski
(Vilna) and Nowogrodzkie (Navahrudak). When someone Jewish was born, was
married, or died >from 1922-1939 in these two provinces, presumably a
civil record was created. Where were these records housed back then and
where are they today?

Re: 1895-1900 marriage record #general

Could they have married in Ohio? Where do you think they lived in
the late 1890s? Who did she live with prior to her marriage?

It is not impossible that the marriage went unregistered in NYC ...
I have seen examples of that .... but also consider the options that
it was not in NYC. Maybe they eloped? It happened even in the 1890s.
Or it might have been a religious ceremony and the Rabbi forgot to file
the paper work or the names are so mangled that you are not finding them.

I would try some of the other permutations or try wildcard searching on
the names. You can try dropping the vowels, try ending in NIK or NICK to
NIC or try dropping the S or the C or .....

I'm unable to find a marriage record for a Nathan SCHOLNIK and Bessie
BERNSTEIN, perhaps in New York City, between 1895-1900.

According to the 1910 U.S. census they had been married 12 years. Their
oldest son was 10 years old then, born in Ohio.

Hi Evan,

I may have found the record you are looking for in Manhattan on 02
July 1898. Here is a direct link:
https://www.familysearch.org/ark:/61903/1:1:24ZF-MWJ

By the way, I used a lot of wildcards to help me find it:

First Names: n*
Last Names: s*ln*
Birth Year: 1873 - 1885
Marriage Year: 1885 - 1905
Spouse Last Name: Bernstein

The link above was the first result shown using those criteria

Hope this helps.

I've entered various permutations of SCHOLNIK at Italian Genealogy Group,

Need Photos of Radzivilov #ukraine

ninaschw
 

Does anyone out there have an old family photo of the former Radziwillow (Radzivilov) Poland, now Radyvyliv, Ukraine?

I am a graphic designer working with JewishGen on a new English translation of the Yizkor Book Memorial Book of Radzivilov. I am working on the cover design, and would like, if possible, to use a photo of Jewish life in Radziwillow anywhere between 1905 and 1942. I'm looking for a photo that would include something of the city, such as a house, farm, school, synagogue, study house, shop, clubhouse, etc.

I'm afraid I cannot offer payment - it is a volunteer project - but you would receive a prominent photo credit, and any website or contact information you prefer.If this would be all right, please let me know at artstop@impulsegraphics.com.

(The old photo would be needed in high resolution, at least 600 dots per inch at the original photo size.)

Many thanks in advance for your kind help.

Records from Paszika (aka Pasika, Kishidveg) for Salzberger #hungary

Moishe Miller
 

Hello Fellow Researchers,

Based on the successful translation of my Viewmate 68618 (thanks for the
multiple posts and emails!), I have learned that my SALZBERGER ancestor
that was living in Munkacz (Mukachevo, Ukraine today) in 1872 was
originally >from Paszika (possibly Pasika, Kishidveg), where she was
born.

The details I now know are that my g-g-gm Toni (Toba Etel) Salzberger
(married as a widow to Israel Schwimmer in 1872 when she was 32) was the
daughter of Josef and Chaje Szure Salzberger. She was born about 1840 in
Paszika.

Would anyone know if Jewish records exists for Paszika? In a prior email
to me, Peter Absalon made reference to the 1877 Dvorzsak gazetteer which
mentioned the vital records for Paszika were archived in Szolyva. I
would like to find:
* Toni's first marriage
* if records exist, an 1848 census record with her parents
* Toni's birth record >from 1840
* Toni's parent's marriage, presumably in the 1830's or earlier
* The death records of Josef Salzberger and Chaje Szure Salzberger,
Toni's parents, probably sometime in the late 1800's

Can anyone share thoughts or ideas for further research on this matter?

(for your reference, the marriage record is at
