Am Steinhof Mental Hospital - Wien #general

Yaacov Slizak <yslizak@...>
 

Dear Genners,

Is there any available information on patients records for the *Am
Steinhof* mental hospital in Wien, Austria?

The person I am researching was supposedly admitted to this institution
around 1928, and probably transported to Poland between 1938 and 1942.

Please respond privately.

Thanks,

Czaple, near Lviv? #general

Yaacov Slizak <yslizak@...>
 

Dear Genners,

Is there any place called *Czaple* near Lviv?

I was told by two different sources, in relation to a centain person I'm
researching:

- Was born in a place called Czaple, in the Galitzia area, Poland.
- Was born in a town close to Lviv, Ukraine.

The closest Czaple I found is not even close to Ukraine.

Can someone shed some light on this puzzle?

Thanks,

A Mystery! #latvia

Eric and Paula Benjaminson <oregon81@...>
 

Hello all,

I have a bit of a mystery and I wonder if anyone has any suggestions: In the
Hamburg emigration lists, there are two records for a Benjamin and Sara
BENJAMINSOHN >from Goldingen who emigrated to New York in June 1891. Given
the names and the small size of Goldingen, I'm pretty sure that these are
relatives. I have searched through every possible name variation in the
online 1900 U.S. Federal census for all 50 states and can find no record at
all. Also no Social Security records. I figure the following are
possibilities:

-- they were not heads of household and thus not indexed in the census, or
their names were altered to be meaningless;
-- they died before 1900;
-- Benjamin died and Sara remarried;
-- they returned to Latvia;
-- they changed their surname for some reason.

I'd be curious of anyone has any insights or suggestions of what to do next.

Thanks,

railroads in Ukraine #ukraine

Brdbrain7@...
 

Witihin the last few weeks there was a question posted re railroad lines
in the Ukraine. Chapter 28 (pp.90-92) of Paul Robert Magosci's Historical
Atlas of East Central Europe (ISBN: 0-8020-0607-8) c. 1993, covers "Canal
and railway development before 1914". Although Kamenets Podolskiy is not
specifically shown on the map on p.91, there is a line Lviv-Ternopol
(1871), Ternopol-Odessa (1875), that must have passed fairly near there.

As I previously wrote: Some time ago a new-found cousin recommended a
book called "The Journeys of David Toback" by Carole Malkin. "It is
wonderful. Not only is it a terrific read, but it has a lot of
information on Proskurov in the late 1800's. You get a real feel for what
the city and the Jewish community was like... " This book will answer
many questions about life in Kaminets Podolskiy area when our ancestors
lived there.

Congregtion of Jacob Synagogue , London #unitedkingdom

Cyril FOX <cyril@...>
 

I am in contact with David Behr , Administrator of the Congregation of Jacob
Synagogue , 351 Commercial Road, London E1 2PS. Tel: 020 7790 3849

He is writing a history of the above synagogue, for its 100th anniversary.

He has invited me , on behalf of the JGSGB, to come down and examine some
old
records and record them where possible. I think his main items are registers
of members' payments , with their names and addresses for 1933 and 1944.

I hope to report on any progress in due course.

In the meantime , if anyone has any information or anecdotes about the
Congregation of Jacob Synagogue/Community , would they kindly get in touch
with David at the above address.

19 century census records #hungary

AttilaRona@...
 

Are any of the 19th century Hungarian Jewish census records available on the www?

Attila Rona

Moderator VK: As Jordan Auslander reported in his presentation at the Toronto IAJGS conference, the Austro-Hungarian Empire conducted censuses of Jewish residents in 1725-27, 1735-39, 1743-45, 1767-68, and, of course, 1848. Partial censuses of other counties (e.g. Tolna, Zemplen) exist >from other years. Other national censuses (e.g. 1869) identified the persons enumerated by religion including Jews. Jordan says that some of these records are preserved in regional archjives. I am not aware of any exhaustive listing of repositories of Jewish census records and have not come across any of the Jewish enumerations on-line except for those files posted on the H-SIG website and partial translations submitted to this list and preserved in the JewishGen archives. If anyone has come across such records please let us know!

Be aware that some of the postings regarding the availability of records regards vital records, not census records. This is a different matter if only because vital records were created and maintained at the local level. In a 1996 Avotaynu article on Czech and Slovak research, Ed Luft explained, for example, that in areas of Slovakia that were formerly part of Hungary, records more than 100 years old had to be transferred >from the local record offices that created them to the local archives unless they were of national relevance in which case they were transferred to national archives. Some books, indexes, and associated records remained in local record offices even though they were more than 100 years old because the book or index also included records that were less than 100 years old.
