JRI-Poland Kopyczynce Project #general

Karen Steinfeld
 

In April, it was announced that there are newly available AGAD records for
Kopyczynce. These records are 1879-1919 marriages and 1915-1933 deaths. We have
fully funded the marriages but are still looking for $380 to complete the
indexing of the death records. If you have already donated to this project, we
would like to thank you very much for your support. If not, we would welcome
contributions in any amount.

Please go to http://jri-poland.org/support.htm for instructions on how to make
your donation. Please be sure to apply your donation to "AGAD-Kopyczynce."
Lastly, please send a note to Karen Steinfeld (ksteinfeld@verizon.net) with
your name and contribution so that we can keep track of the donations.

Thank you very much for your consideration.

Looking for information about a GLASS family in Johannesburg #southafrica

Roy Ogus
 

I'm looking for information about a GLASS family who lived in Johannesburg. I
know of Michael GLASS, born around 1902, who died in 1988 in Johannesburg. His
father's name was William, his mother was Betsy (nee DIAMOND). I believe that
Michael's parents and the family lived in Uitenhage Michael's siblings were
Solomon, Ettie (Esther), Abraham, and Hyman.

Michael married Esther RODKIN around 1940, and Esther died in Johannesburg in
1980. Michael and Esther had no children. Esther was part of my family.

I would appreciate hearing >from anyone who has any information about this GLASS
family, or knows how to contact any of the living members of the family.

Thanks!

Getting Vital Records (BMD) from South Africa #southafrica

Saul Issroff
 

Keith Meintjies (Michigan) has kindly agreed to my posting this useful
information on how to order a BMD certificate >from outside South
Africa.

First, be sure you have your own birth and marriage certificates, and birth
certificates for your children. Keith found this out the hard way when he
retired and had to prove his existence all over again to get my pension.

Also, if you want to take a minor child into or out of South Africa (ZA)
you will need a birth certificate.

Second, you have to get over the fact that genealogy research in South
Africa is different, particularly than that in the UK.

Yes, you can apply for BMD certificates through the government, but they
are fairly useless for genealogy. Within ZA, go to a Home Affairs office.
Outside ZA, contact your nearest ZA consulate or embassy.

What's the problem? They will charge you a large amount of money. You have
to supply all the information. A response will come in between a year and
never.

However, please go to www.eggsa.org and look at their "how to" guides
for genealogy in ZA.

The critical document is a "Death Notice". It is NOT a Death Certificate.
The Death Notice is the first step in administering (probating) the estate
of the deceased. As such it will list place of birth, place and date of
death, parents, spouse(s) and (living) children, and sometimes
grandchildren if a child is deceased.

How do you find Death Notices? Go to NAAIRS, the index to the South
African Archives, for deaths before about 1960.
http://www.national.archsrch.gov.za/sm300cv/smws/sm300dl

Choose "RSA" as the data base, then go figure it out. It's not difficult.
After about 1960, records are kept at the various offices of the Master of
the Supreme Court in major cities. If you find a record in the archives,
eggsa.org has a service to order photographs of documents >from most of the
archives depots.

South African genealogy (for those of European descent) is incredibly well
documented, perhaps second only to Iceland. If you are looking for
connections before about 1900, I suggest you Google
GISA Stellenbosch and contact Ms. Lorna Olivier there. There will be a
fee for their services.

Otherwise, the registers at familysearch.org are a great resource, though
you generally have to know where you should be looking.

Re: Holten, Germany ,GUMPERTZ family #germany

Dear Lin

Oberhausen is a city near Duisburg in North Rhine-Westphalia. Holten,
adjacent to Oberhausen, was formerly an independent community but,
according to German Wikipedia, was absorbed into Oberhausen proper
in 1929. Old BMD records for the region (if there are any remaining)
will be held by the NRW Archive, Rheinland Section, whom I have found
very helpful. Their address is

Landesarchiv Nordrhein-Westfalen
Abteilung Rheinland
Schifferstrasse 3
47059 Duisburg

Good luck,

Planning a trip to ancestral town Czchow #galicia

Dave Lewak <dave@...>
 

Hi,

My great-grandmother Rebecca (Tauba Ryfka) Winzelberg Lieberman was
born in Czchow in 1889. I'm thinking of planning a trip to Czchow next
summer, but I'm not sure what to do once I get there. Ideally I'd like to see
whatever Jewish artifacts still exist, but I have no idea what is there;
despite much internet research, I have not been able to find a Jewish
cemetery or synagogue.

Has anyone ever been to Czchow, or know anyone who has?

Does anyone know about a Jewish cemetery in Czchow?

Does anyone have any experience going to an ancestral town without
knowing much about it before hand?

Thanks --

I want to thank everyone who gave me input about the genealogical connection
to the rabbis.
What comes out of the DNA testing is that I am descended >from second cousins
of R. Yakov Weil.
He was said to have been descended >from R. Maharam Rothenburg, the teacher
of the Rosh (Rabbi Asher ben Yechiel) before the Rosh moved to Toledo.
Weils are said to have originated in Catalonia and moved to Germany.
Weils are said to be descended >from RambaN in Catalonia, and then apparently

Thus, if so I would be descended >from Nachmanides and Maharam Rothenburg
