Re: Was the area of today's western Slovakia considered part of Hungary in 1869? #austria-czech

Yes! All of the area within what is now Slovakia was Hungary prior to
end of World War I. Malacky, Slovakia, was formerly Malaczka, Hungary.

Latest additions to the All Galicia Database #austria-czech

Gesher Galicia SIG
 

New vital records and taxpayer records are now available on the All
Galicia Database (https://search.geshergalicia.org).

A. Vital records
a) Stanislawow (Ivano-Frankivsk). Central State Historical Archives of
Ukraine in Lviv (TsDIAL), Fond 701/1/306.
- Jewish marriages 1789-1871. (300 records)
These contains the oldest Jewish vital records in Fond 701/1 in the
Lviv archive, and are one of only two vital records sets >from the 18th
century in that fond.

b) Lwow-Zniesienie (Znesinnya). TsDIAL, Fond 701/1/156.
- Jewish births (index book) 1852-1857, 1870, 1914-1939 [extracted
from the index book of Jewish births, 1852-1939]. (4,271 records)
The Przemysl state archive has in the past 18 months restructured the
part of the Jewish records Fond 154 known as IGW 102. They have
gathered together records sets - many of them fragments that had
become detached >from a book of records, and several of which were
previously unidentified - and assembled them in a new file (Sygn. 103)
in this fond. Gesher Galicia has so far indexed two of these short
files, as shown below, and is looking to work on others.

c) Brody. Przemysl State Archive, Fond 154 (IGW 102), Sygn. 103/9.
- Jewish births 1941-1942. (16 records).
This is unusual. There are almost no other known Brody Jewish vital
records >from the 20th century in any archive or civil registration
office in Poland or Ukraine. There is a handful of loose certificates
(marriage banns, births, deaths) >from the years 1900, 1901 and 1926,
held in Fond 424 at AGAD - and a book of Jewish deaths, 1941-1942,
held, but not yet accessible, at the Civil Registration Office (USC)
in Warsaw, but that is all. These birth records must have become
detached >from an original book that was lost or destroyed, apart from
this fragment. There are 16 records in this set, eight of them from
January/February 1942. The other eight records are earlier (probably
late 1941), but contain only the details of the child=E2=80=99s mother and =
the
mother=E2=80=99s father, as the left-hand page >from the records is missing.

d) Drohobycz (Drohobych). Przemysl State Archive, Fond 154 (IGW 102),
Sygn. 103/17.
- Jewish marriages 1935. (44 records).
These records had become detached >from the book of Drohobycz Jewish
marriage records for 1935, which is held in the Lviv archive, and
which Gesher Galicia had previously indexed and put on the online
database.

Vital records coming soon:
- Mikulince: Jewish deaths 1887-1890, 1893-1894, 1896-1899, 1929
- Nowy Wisnicz: Jewish deaths (index book) 1919-1942

Jewish deaths 1820-1834, 1845-1869.


B. Jewish Taxpayer records
Gesher Galicia has uploaded sets of Jewish taxpayer records, all from
the 1930s, >from seven Galician towns in the vicinity of Stanislawow.
These records are all held at DAIFO, the State Archive of
Ivano-Frankivsk Oblast. We thank Mark Jacobson for coordinating and
working on this project and Eddy Mitelsbach for his assistance with
the indexing.

- Jezupol (Yezupil). Jewish Taxpayers, 1934. Fond 6/2/314. (48 records)
- Mariampol (Mariyampil). Jewish Taxpayers, 1934. Fond 6/2/294. (62 record=

Yizkor Book Project, May 2018 #usa

Lance Ackerfeld <lance.ackerfeld@...>
 

Shalom,

It is always very gratifying to look back and see what accomplishments
we've managed to achieve in the Yizkor Book Project over the previous
month. I would now like to outline some of these accomplishments:

To begin with, in what has become a regular section of our monthly
report, once again, I am pleased to announce the completion of a
further 3 Yizkor Book projects and they are:

- Children Train - An additional book written by the indefatigable,
William Leibner, which was carefully edited by Erica S. Goldman-Brodie
and Toby Bird z”l. We are extremely indebted to receive this further
addition to our project.
- Czestochowa, Poland (The Jews of Czestochowa) - This book has been
the "baby" of Gloria Berkenstat Freund over quite a few years.
Together with the many other translation projects she works on, she
has managed to completely translate this extensive volume. Our deep
appreciation goes out to Gloria for the completion of this project
which joins a number of other books previously translated by her on
the Czestochowa community that we have online.
- Roman, Romania (The Jewish Community of Roman) A book that was
kindly translated by a number of volunteer translators and has been
meticulously edited and translations supplemented by Yocheved
Klausner, allowing us to present the completed volume online.

We now have 150 completely online and if you are "concerned" that we
soon won't have nothing to do, we do have a further 750 Yizkor book
projects that are work in progress, so there are huge challenges still
ahead of us. We are always looking out for volunteer assistance and
financial support in our endeavor to advance these projects and if you
are able to assist in any manner, I would be pleased to hear >from you.
In particular, I would like to hear >from you if you are knowledgeable
in Hebrew or Yiddish and have a background in editing and, most
importantly, are able to volunteer some time to the project, this
would be assistance that would definitely help us go forward.

And on regular sections, again, we have the honor of announcing the
publishing of two new books through the auspices of the Yizkor Books
in Print Project, bringing the total number of books published by this
group to 70 - a humble hats off to them!

- Memorial Book of 13 Shtetls of Galicia - Another book written by
William Leibner (yes, the name is now very familiar) that was
attentively edited by Ingrid Rockberger and covers 13 communities, not
all of which, previously had their own Yizkor book.
- There Was A Shtetl In Lithuania: Dusiat Reflected In Reminiscences -
A quite considerable volume (960 pages) dedicated to the community of
Dusiat (Dusetos) which was laboriously compiled by Sara Weiss-Slep and
further painstakingly edited and produced by Hedva Scop and Olga
Zabludoff.

And now for details of all the updates and additions that were carried
out in the Yizkor Book Project in May.

We have added in one new book:

- Monor, Hungary (Bound by Fate: In Memory of the Jewish Community of
Monor) https://www.jewishgen.org/yizkor/Monor/Monor.html

We have added in 7 new entries:

Early American SIG #USA Yizkor Book Project, May 2018 #usa

Lance Ackerfeld <lance.ackerfeld@...>
 

Shalom,

It is always very gratifying to look back and see what accomplishments
we've managed to achieve in the Yizkor Book Project over the previous
month. I would now like to outline some of these accomplishments:

To begin with, in what has become a regular section of our monthly
report, once again, I am pleased to announce the completion of a
further 3 Yizkor Book projects and they are:

- Children Train - An additional book written by the indefatigable,
William Leibner, which was carefully edited by Erica S. Goldman-Brodie
and Toby Bird z”l. We are extremely indebted to receive this further
addition to our project.
- Czestochowa, Poland (The Jews of Czestochowa) - This book has been
the "baby" of Gloria Berkenstat Freund over quite a few years.
Together with the many other translation projects she works on, she
has managed to completely translate this extensive volume. Our deep
appreciation goes out to Gloria for the completion of this project
which joins a number of other books previously translated by her on
the Czestochowa community that we have online.
- Roman, Romania (The Jewish Community of Roman) A book that was
kindly translated by a number of volunteer translators and has been
meticulously edited and translations supplemented by Yocheved
Klausner, allowing us to present the completed volume online.

We now have 150 completely online and if you are "concerned" that we
soon won't have nothing to do, we do have a further 750 Yizkor book
projects that are work in progress, so there are huge challenges still
ahead of us. We are always looking out for volunteer assistance and
financial support in our endeavor to advance these projects and if you
are able to assist in any manner, I would be pleased to hear >from you.
In particular, I would like to hear >from you if you are knowledgeable
in Hebrew or Yiddish and have a background in editing and, most
importantly, are able to volunteer some time to the project, this
would be assistance that would definitely help us go forward.

And on regular sections, again, we have the honor of announcing the
publishing of two new books through the auspices of the Yizkor Books
in Print Project, bringing the total number of books published by this
group to 70 - a humble hats off to them!

- Memorial Book of 13 Shtetls of Galicia - Another book written by
William Leibner (yes, the name is now very familiar) that was
attentively edited by Ingrid Rockberger and covers 13 communities, not
all of which, previously had their own Yizkor book.
- There Was A Shtetl In Lithuania: Dusiat Reflected In Reminiscences -
A quite considerable volume (960 pages) dedicated to the community of
Dusiat (Dusetos) which was laboriously compiled by Sara Weiss-Slep and
further painstakingly edited and produced by Hedva Scop and Olga
Zabludoff.

And now for details of all the updates and additions that were carried
out in the Yizkor Book Project in May.
