Re: Suczawa, Austria 1890's: Modern name/place? #general

Janice Goldman's modern "Suczawa, Austria" could well be
Suceava, in the NNE of today's Romania, about 25 miles >from
the Ukrainian border and about 40 >from the Moldovan border.
It is the head of today's Suceava Judete (county) of Romania,
formerly the southern part of Bukovina.

Bukovina was an independent crown land in the Austro Hungarian
empire. Its northern part is the Chernivetska oblast, in
today's Ukraine.

More information may be found at

It is 221.1 miles N of Bucharest according to JewishGen's

Kolbuszowa Region Research Group (KRRG) Website #galicia

Dear Friends,

It is with great pride that we announce the Kolbuszowa Region Research
Group (KRRG) Website at:

http://www.shtetlinks.jewishgen.org/Kolbuszowa/

To Neil Emmer, our wonderful Webmaster goes our gratitude for having stayed
the course and for designing a beautiful website.

Special thanks go to:

Peter Dreifuss for designing our beautiful logo
Michael Miller for designing the maps for our Homepage.
JewishGen who hosts our website
Chuck Weinstein and John Berman for their guidance

KRRG covers all shtetlach within approximately a 30 miles radius of Kolbuszowa
(Galicia, now Poland) and includes the following Administrative Districts:

Kolbuszowa - Lancut - Mielec - Nisko - Pilzno - Ropczyce - Rzeszow -
Strzyzow - Tarnobrzeg

The main KRRG website has material of interest to all researching our area.
Make sure to look through it before running to view your own shtetl
page

from the KRRG Homepage you can go to the list of Shtetlach Included. All
shtetlach being researched by our members are included and their coordinates,
distance >from Kolbuszowa and Rzeszow given. Shtetlach that already have a
Shtetlpage are highlighted and you can go directly to those pages.

When you look through the shtetl pages, use your imagination. Remember it
is about real people who lived, laughed, went to Cheder, to the market,
celebrated the Shabbat, got married and had children. When you see a photo
of a lady with a beautiful hat, and see in the Business Directory that there
was a hat maker in the shtetl, imagine her walking in and trying hats until
she found the one she has in the photo. If there was no hat maker, imagine
her taking the horse and cart to the nearest larger shtetl,or perhaps
taking
the train all the way to Krakow or Lviv and coming back with the latest the
latest fashion. Look at the photo of the family matriarch wearing a sheitel
(wig) and walk with her to the hairdresser when she goes to order a new
one. Look at the photo of someone's great grandfather, dressed in
his Shabes best and think of him walking into the local tailor and proudly
ordering his new outfit. And the children, remember the children,skipping,
laughing, playing, going to school. This was their shtetl, your shtetl and
something to remember and be proud of, because we are their descendants and
they are a part of us all

The website is a work in progress and eventually we hope to have a page
dedicated each of our shtetlach. Following are the existing shtetlpages:

Albigowa
Alfredowka,
Biala (Near Tyczyn)
Bialoboki, Borowa (Near Mielec)

Re: Halberstam - Teitelbaum families #galicia

Miriam Saltzman <whatever399@...>
 

Bertha,
I have heard of these families >from Galicia, i don't think theyre >from
rudnik, but other places in galicia. There are a lot of chassidic rabbis in
the family if we're talking about the same one. There is a book I once read
about the Halberstam family in Bobov, Galicia in a book caleed Where The
Moon By Night, by Devora Gliksman, it is about their experiences during
World War II and it has that particular families family tree in it. I am
pretty sure there is a Teitelbaum connection in there also. I know there are
Halberstams in New York and I'm sure many other places. I hope this helps a
little bit.

Schmerel etc. #galicia

Carol Cohen <cgandhc@...>
 

I have been researching Schmerel for quite some time and rarely find
it as a surname, on the other hand, I have found many variations:
Shmeryahu, Shmerel, Shmerko or variations in spelling: Shmeril,
Shemerel, etc. All I have is that my aunt Brani Sass, born 1877 in
Kozova, married Shmerel. Since there are virtually so few Shmerel
last names, could I assume this is a first name? In my extended
family, no one knows if this is a first or last name. All we know is
one of Brani's sisters perished in the Shoah and we think she did
too. My question: Is Shmerel (or variations) a surname? They lived
in Kozova in the Ternopol Gibernia of Galicia. Thanks,

All Hungary Database Status Report #hungary

Carol J. Robinson <caroljr@...>
 

It is with greatest of pleasure that we announce that JewishGen has
approved H-SIG's proposals to move the following records to searchable
databases on JewishGen:

Database and database donor:

Jewish Who's Who in (Buda) Pest 1837-1845 (Peter Hidas)
Jewish Birth Records Ilava District, Slovakia 1800-1897 (Jenny Brichta)
The 1848 Census of the Jews (Barbara Young, Daniel Teichman, Debbi
Korman, Dolph Klein, Don Seligman, Ed Zwieback, Gyrogy Haraszti, Henry
Wellisch, Lois Clauson, Louis Schonfeld, Lynn Golumbic, and Peter Spiro)

The Vronov Transport List (Holocaust Database) (Bobby Furst)

The next step of the process involves obtaining permission to use the
data and obtaining donor forms >from the data donors. We are working
with Joyce Field of JewishGen to obtain the necessary permissions and
with the database donors to obtain the donor forms. We have had
difficulty contacting Barbara Young, Daniel Teichman and Gyrogy
Haraszti, so if anyone has correct e-mail addresses for any of them,
please let me know privately.

We still have other proposals under review and anticipate approval in
the near future. We are also pleased to announce that Bob Hanscom has
agreed to serve as project coordinator for the Trencin County census
records project. Thanks Bob for not only finding these valuable records
but coordinating their addition to the AHD. We have teams of volunteers
for the 1828, 1848 and Trencin County census projects, but the
coordinators, Eric Block (bloch@wi.rr.com) 1828; Robert Neu
(roneu1@yahoo.com) 1848; and Bob Hanscom (rodihan@juno.com) Trencin
would be glad to hear >from any additional volunteers.

This progress toward a searchable All Hungary Database couldn't have
happened without the support of the H-SIG membership. Thanks for your
support.

* The importance of diacritics (was Re: Where is R. Banyacska?) #hungary

Tom Venetianer <tom.vene@...>
 

Dear all who answered,

Thanks for the tips.

This is again one of those riddles which results >from not taking into
account diacritics.

I found the place: it's called RUDA BANYACSKA with both 'a' in
'banya...' having acute accents. A search in Google, entering the
diacritics, revealed the correct place. I found it in Bogardi's Radix
gazetteer. Then my Lelkes Gyorgy gazetteer confirmed it.

This place was on the outskirts of Satoraljaujhely (I expected it to
be in Zemplen since all my Stark branch was born and dwelled there).
The place became part of the town and disappeared. Used to be called
Velka' Banac^ka in Slovakian.

Living and learning :-)

One of my close relatives was born in a town entered in his birth record a=

R. Banyacska. Any ideas what the "R." stands for and where this place
is/was located?
TIA
Tom


Moderator VK: Could this place be Rimavska Bana (with a
whatchamacallit mark over the "n")? It's northwest of Rimavska
Sobota.
I believe Moderator VK is correct. The Hungarian name was Rimabanya
which was then renamed in 1920 as Rimavsk=E1 Bana ( with the downward
pointing diacritic caret over the "n"). The center of town lies on
the west bank of the Rimava River.

* Weird Gazetteer of pre-Trianon Hungary #hungary

Tom Venetianer <tom.vene@...>
 

Dear all,

This is a weird site with a crazy navigation page. But you will
consider it as an alternative place to discover the names and what
happened to shtetls which belonged to Hungary and were separated >from
it due to the Trianon Treaty. Visit

Settlements detached >from Hungary by the Treaty of Trianon 1920
http://parizs.tripod.com/trianon/trianon.html

Caveat: the site's author hasn't completed yet the listing, so you
will only find places up to and beginning with the letter 'K'.

Enjoy... if you can :-)
