It appears that some of my mail was not getting through and I thank those
of you who went to great lengths to get me the information. If you've sent
me any information regarding my query of DANZIGER and I have not replied
to you, please email me again.

For those of you who have given me definitive information about my
DANZIGERS, I thank you >from the bottom of my heart. My father has been
overjoyed ever since I sent him the information. For his 59th birthday,
you have provided him the one thing he had lacked his entire life,
information about who his family was. Hopefully, we will be able to find
more information about the Upstate New York DANZIGERS and fill in all the
holes.

Thank you,

What To Do With Your Trip Reports #general

David M. Fox <davefox73@...>
 

There has been some discussion about how to handle trip reports. Here is
what I suggest. When you come back >from a trip to Belarus, please post a
brief overview about your trip. Then write a more detailed account and
submit it along with photos (in digital format) to Fran Bock
<franbock@...>, our new Newsletter Editor. Be sure to include
captions for each photo. The trip report with photos will be placed in the
Belarus On Line Newsletter. Appropriate links will be made on the Shtetls
of Belarus pages as well as in the Belarus Resources section if the article
provides "how to" information.

I urge all of you who have made trips in the past and who have not
submitted a report of your trip to do so. We learn >from each other!

Dinitz, Applebaum, Axelrod, and Frieman #ukraine

Adam Smith <ajsmith98@...>
 

Hi Everyone,
I was recently fortunate enough to find family tree notes that were
recorded on my family around 1935! I wanted to share this information to
see if people could establish connections. This primarily traces a DINITZ
family starting in the mid-1800's.

I am not sure where this family was living when this "snapshot" was taken,
but part of this family was living in Podolia Gubernia, probably in the
town of Khmelnik, but a few branches were living in Odessa.

1. Layzer Yitzhak DINITZ (DENITZ, DUNITZ) had 4 known children most
likely born in the 1850's-1860's. (Loeb, Surah, Chasi, and Gitel)

2. Their son Loeb/Leib Dinitz had children Layzer Yitzhak, Gitel, and
Leah. The family started in Brooklyn. Layzer Yitzhak Denitz moved to
Perth Amboy, NJ where he was in the barrel business.
Gitel married Hyman Applebaum (died appx. 1917) moved to Perth Amboy where
her sons had cigar and stationary stores.

2. Chasi married Moishe Freiman in Odessa. Their children were Etah
(married Murskin Schnieder who died 1931, Brooklyn), Surah, Leah, Avraham,
Solomon (moved to Argentina)

2. Surah married Leepa Alter Axelrod. This family lived in Odessa.

2. Gitel Denitz married Haim Abramsky and lived in Khmelnik, their
children were Lazar Yitzhak Abramsky(1884-1959), Layke Abramsky Wachovsky
(1889-1946), and Minnie Abramsky Bloom. These families lived primarily in
the Lower East Side of Manhattan


Let me know if you think you are related to any of these families, and I
will privide additional information.

Sincerely,
Adam Smith

Cyrillic Vital Records Translation Request #ukraine

Hello,

Thanks to JRI Poland, I've been able to get copies of several vital
records of individuals I may be related to. I've posted scanned versions
of these documents at the following locations:

1) http://www.geocities.com/ahslot/zlotnikmojzesdeath1868.jpg
2) http://www.geocities.com/ahslot/zlotnikhyndafrajdladeath1869.jpg

I suggest copying and pasting the above links into a browser window rather
than clicking on them directly as this seems to cause problems >from some
email programs (you might get a "not available" message). The files are
kind of large, ranging between 150 kb and 400 kb, but I wanted them at
sufficient resolution to be as legible as possible. I would like an
extraction of all vital information >from these documents--names (and
relationships), dates, ages, locations, etc. The first record was
registered in Wyszogrod and the rest were >from Plock. Please respond to

New Warszawa Data #warsaw #poland

Hadassah Lipsius <kesher@...>
 

Warszawa Researchers will be delighted to hear that there are several new
sources of data that will be available soon.


~~~~~~~~~~~
The JRI-Poland Shtetl CO-OP project has just submitted to the Database
Manager another 3300 records of data >from the LDS Microfilms. This data
covered the years 1830, 1831, 1842 and 1851. I will certainly send
notification to the group, when the data goes live.
http://www.jewishgen.org/jri-pl


~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~
The JRI-Poland Polish State Archive Project is also moving along. This
data covers the years >from 1865-1901. There are several files that will
become available shortly in the near future. Information on this project
can be found at
http://www.jewishgen.org/jri-pl/psa/psastat.htm

Phase 1 of the project which was added in 1999 has been updated. Phase 1
is data that was provided in conjunction with the Ronald Lauder foundation.
The revised Phase 1 data contains 16500 records

Phase 2 of the project has just been completed and has also been provided
with our partners at the Ronald Lauder Foundation. This Phase contains
almost 8900 records

Phase 3 of the project is based on copies of index pages JRI-Poland
received >from the Polish State Archives in Warszawa. This file will
contain over 21000 records. The data has been initially entered and the
corrections and reviews are under way.


So it is 3300+16500 + 8900 + 21000 = 49,700 records! Not bad...

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

Warszawa Research Group- Warszawa Homeowners List Project.---------

The WRG has so far created databases for the Homeowners list for 1852, 1869
and 1870. The database can be found on Jewishgen at
http://www.jewishgen.org/databases/WarszawaHomeowners.htm. During my
recent trip to Warszawa, I was able to obtain a copy of the 1832 homeowners
list or Taryffa Domow. I am looking for a volunteer to help do the data
entry. This is typed information and you don't have to spend time trying
to decipher handwriting. Please contact me if you are able to help.

I have an amusing store about my quest for more Homeowners Lists. In
July, I was in Warszawa and I went into a used bookstore looking for some
some additional list. We asked if they had any books on Warszawa
Homeowners and he said they were really hard to obtain now. He said he
himself was doing genealogy research and that for Warszawa Research he used
a website that the Jewish Genealogists set up which contained a searchable
database of the 1852, 1869 and 1870 lists. :-)


~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~
Wait! I have another project to tell you about. I might as well give you
advanced notice on something new.

Next week at the Toronto Conference, they will be announcing a new database
containing the Warszaw Ghetto Death Files. This Project is a joint project
between four organization; JRI-Poland, Jewish Historical Institute and
JGS, Inc (NY). The database contains over 10,000 names.

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

So that is my report for now. It looks like we never sleep.
