Zsadany / Zdana #hungary

Peter Absolon
 

Shalom,

The Jewish Vital records (pre-1895) >from town of Zdana, Slovakia
(formerly Zsadany, Hernadzsadany) and the area around were never
filmed by LDS. Actually the records were not preserved and probably
lost during WW2.

I recently learned that Kosice archive keeps secondary copy and
extracts of Jewish BMD registers >from Zsadany. Not complete, though as
there are gaps - but one can find the records back in 1850's.

So this morning I took the scans >from all available pages and I'm
going to transcribe them soon. After transcription I will donate the
material to H-SIG so they could be added to All-Hungary Database soon.

I also took pictures of Kosice/Kassa civil vital records 1915-1917
that were released >from Vital Registry office to the State Archive
only last week.

If you have any ancestors >from places like Zsadany, Csany, Nadasd,
Szkaros, and would like run simple search, please let me know.

Best,
Peter Absolon

Another discovery of Bessarabia records! #bessarabia

Yefim Kogan
 

Hi everybody,

I need to share with you a finding I made today.

I am working on my Warsaw presentation on National Archive of Republic of Moldova, and adding
some material to the power point. I also looked into the Moldovan archive website, and there was
not much info in it, until... I decided to do a Google search for that Archive in Russian, and that
brought me to my new "Wow"!!

It appears that archive had a list of All of their funds in Russian, and some of these funds have
Jewish records!! (I had some list >from other sources, but that is much better!). They also did not scan
their material, but have links to FHL records...

Here is a link to that site:
****http://ru.oants.wikia.com/wiki/%D0%9D%D0%B0%D1%86%D0%B8%D0%BE%D0%BD%D0%B0%D0%BB%D1%8C%D0%BD%D1%8B%D0%B9_%D0%B0%D1%80%D1%85%D0%B8%D0%B2_%D0%A0%D0%B5%D1%81%D0%BF%D1%83%D0%B1%D0%BB%D0%B8%D0%BA%D0%B8_%D0%9C%D0%BE%D0%BB%D0%B4%D0%BE%D0%B2%D0%B0****
The link is so big, that you may not have the whole string, as it happens many times before.
I added **** in the beginning and at the end of the link. You can copy between these marks.

Finally, not all Jewish Funds are marked as Jewish... I looked at one of the Funds:

Fund 91 and inside "Delo" 262 that is a list of Kishinev Middle Class Jews >from 1910!!! It is not
Revision, but very similar list. Remember, the last Revision type list we have for Kishinev is >from
1859, and now 1910 - that will fill many gaps in our research.

I was really thrilled with these findings.

Now, we need to get easier access to FHL Microfilms, and also add more Translators/Transcribers
from Russian into the project.
We have now already translated more than 180 thousand records, and I thought that we will have
total of 250,000, but it may have much more records... Kishinev in 1910 had more than 50,000
Jews in town... probably 10% were Merchants, and the rest is Middle Class (Meshchane).

All the best,
Shabbat Shalom,

Baruch Dayan HaEmet - Ruth Gamper Silver #poland

Robinn Magid
 

I am saddened to report the recent and sudden passing of Ruth Gamper
Silver, a longtime volunteer in the Jewish Genealogy world and a good
friend to many of us. Ruth volunteered in the Belarus SIG as a data
acquisition coordinator and with Paul Zoglin and David Feldman, worked
hard to create a cooperative relationship with other SIGs. Ruth was a
dedicated and active volunteer for JRI-Poland.org working with me in
the Lublin region for many years. Her cheerful attitude, willingness
to help, and ability to tell a story will be sorely missed. Ruth loved
her family and her cats very much. May her memory be for a blessing.

Looking for records with surname sounding like Osman in JRI, Poland #poland

Barry Mann
 

Looking for records with surname Osman in JRI, Poland or any other vital
record data bases for Poland.
I found the names and birth dates of my family below, in different
United States records.
I am trying to find records of them using JRI, Poland.
I am also looking for the exact name and location of the town, where
they were born.
I was told by a relative, that they heard >from a family story, that they
lived not too far >from the Czech border
and mentioned a town named Malada.  I think Malada is Mlada Boleshav now
in the Czech Republic.  5025 1454
These are the different spellings of the town they were born in,
mentioned in US records.

Alt Zielun, Zelin, Zellin, Zieleuno, Altsellan, Jerlien.  (Maybe Alt
means "old").
I think Jerlien might be Jelenia Gora.

Family surname Osman in the States.
All dates of birth below are approximate.
Shimson Osman born ? and wife Nettie (Nisha) (Niche) Whitman (Witman)
born 1862.
Shimson died in Germany in 1914 on their way to the U.S.A.
Niche  Arrival USA:  3 Apr 1914.
Their children:
1. Junnie, Jennie, 1891. I do not know her first name used in Poland.
  One document states that she was born in lichun. Arrival USA: 21
Aug 1911.

2. Israel, Isadore  1893.   Arrival USA: 13 June 1912.
3. Harry  1896  I do not know his first name used in Poland. Arrival
USA: 10 June 1913.
4. Freda  1897.  Arrival USA: 10 June 1913.
5. Taube born 1899.  Arrival USA:  3 Apr 1914
6. Peisach born 1900. Arrival USA:  3 Apr 1914

Thanks, Barry Mann

My husband, Eric Rautenberg, had very few family members known to him, because his
mother was a Holocaust survivor. We have been searching for ancestors on Eric's side.
Eric's mother Edith Rautenberg (born Border) was a Holocaust survivor. She never
wanted to talk about her life in those times. If anyone has any family with these
surnames it will be greatly appreciated. Thank you.
