Kosow Lacki Indices Now On-Line #poland

Susan Stone <stonegs@...>
 

Jewish Records Indexing - Poland is pleased to announce that the 1863-1899
Birth, Marriage and Death Indices for Kosow Lacki, Poland have been funded
and the data is now available for searching online. This project is part of
the JRI-Poland / Polish State Archives initiative for the indexing of Jewish
vital records of towns in the Siedlce branch.



Kosow Lacki is located 54 miles ENE of Warsaw and 56 miles SW of Bialystok.
Its geographical coordinates are 52'36"/22'09".



I would like to thank members of the JRI-Poland team, Stanley Diamond, Judy
Baston, Michael Tobias, and Sheila Salo as well as Town Leader Paul Weiss
for his leadership of the Kosow Lacki project, and the many researchers who
generously contributed to the cost of indexing of these records.



Visit the JRI-Poland site at http://www.jewishgen.org/JRI-PL/jriplweb.htm to
search for your family names in the database.



The indices for records of several other towns in the Siedlce Archives are
also now available but the cost of indexing has not been fully funded.
However, researchers making a Qualifying Contribution for their town will be
eligible to obtain an Excel file with the birth, marriage and death index
entries - in advance of the data being released.



Indices to the Jewish vital records of the following towns are available:



TOWN Types Years Qualifying
Contributiom

Lukow BMD 1869-1899 $100

New Year's Greetings -- and clarification #poland

Jrbaston
 

As a member of the Board of Directors of Jewish Records Indexing-
Poland, please let me take this opportunity to wish all of
you a healthy, happy and sweet New Year of 5763, and one
that further enriches your family history research.

For me, and, I hope for you as well, this past year was full
of exciting discoveries, made through the work of JRI-Poland.
If this is also the case for you, the New Year is an especially
good time to make sure that you have contributed to the indexing
efforts of your towns.

On the new JRI-Poland home page, click on "your town."
If your towns are fully funded, you can make a New Year's
contribution to the JRI-Poland General Fund, which helps
support many aspects of JRI-Poland's important work.

To support JRI-Poland and its many individual projects -
such as indexing of records >from your ancestral town -
please send your checks - marked with the town name
or project for which the money is being donated - to:
Jewish Records Indexing - Poland, c/o Sheila Salo,
Treasurer, 5607 Greenleaf Rd., Cheverly, MD20785
or pay by Visa or MasterCard at:
<http://www.jewishgen.org/jri-pl/visa.htm>

The approaching New Year is also an especially good time
to try to clarify a situation that is becoming increasingly
confusing to many researchers. On our website and our
digests, we indicate that JRI-Poland is an independent
organization that is hosted by JewishGen. But despite
saying this, confusion seems to persist, and many
researchers believe that JRI-Poland and JewishGen
are the same organization. This is not the case.

Jewish Records Indexing-Poland has a totally independent
administrative and financial framework, and is a non-
profit organization in the United States. This means that
if you want to make a contribution to the indexing of your
town's records, or if you want to make a general contribution
to JRI-Poland as a way of saying "thank you" for a research
breakthrough, that contribution must be sent to JRI-Poland
at the above address. If the contribution is sent anywhere else -- including JewishGen -- we will not receive it.

"Hosted by JewishGen" means that JRI-Poland indexes
Polish Jewish records (1.8 million of them !!) but that
JewishGen provides the infrastructure -- the bandwidth
for our database, the servers for our database and website
and the software for our JRI-Poland Discussion Group.

To help support the cost of this infrastructure, and for
the other important features provided by JewishGen, we
hope you will also make a contribution to JewishGen
this New Years, so they will able to continue their
important work.

With my warmest wishes for a healthy, happy and safe
year,

Judy Baston,
Member, Board of Directors,
Jewish Records Indexing-Poland.

instructions and status of orders from PSA #poland

Marty Meyers <meyers01@...>
 

Can anyone update us on the issue regarding orders of vital records
from PSA in Poland? There was a problem with currency charges that needed
to be resolved, I believe.

Is there a new procedure to order vital records? Should we use the old
procedure?
Should we continue to wait?

Shana Tova,

Buchenwald Concentration Camp #general

Tracy LeSage <tlesage@...>
 

Hello List,
A few days ago, after a co-worker asked me to help him, I posted the
message below to several lists that I belong to. It was suggested that I
subscribe and post the message here. My co-workers father-in-law was one
of the American GI's who liberated the camp. Any assistance in this
matter would be greatly appreciated.
Thank you,
Tracy LeSage

Hello,
I am sending this to several lists. A co-worker has an item that
his father-in-law brought home after World War II. They have a lot of
questions about this disk. The ultimate goal is to return this disk to
the family if possible (or if wanted). To start with I think we need to
find out just what the disk is. If any one is interested in seeing an
image please contact me off the list at tlesage@triad.rr.com and I will
email the image to you.
Thank you for any assistance,
Tracy LeSage

According to my co-worker
The disc was found in 1945 outside of an oven that contained one body.

The camp was Buchenwald in Germany. The disc is about 4 1/2" in diameter.
It is brown hard plastic with a round disc of aluminum screwed to it.

The name inscribed is Alexander Horrath. The number 10663 is also stamped
above the name. There are several other series of numbers but they do not
have any obvious meaning.


Re: Machzike Hadath Anshei Zborow #general

Bernard Kouchel <koosh@...>
 

I suggest you begin your search in "The American Jewish Year Book"
(annual) for basic info about the syn.

There are a great many libraries in the U.S. and Canada, both public
and university, that may have complete sets of the AJYB. Major Jewish
institutions-- Hebrew Union College, Jewish Theological Seminary,
Brandeis U., etc.-- certainly have them. In addition to these libraries
there are also many synagogues, JCC, Jewish schools, that collect the
AJYB. Be sure to check library catalogs for all sites.

I'm guessing the temple was organized around the turn of the last century

EHRMANN family of Bonfeld Germany #general

andrew.barrettbettcher@...
 

Hello, I am researching my EHRMANN family in Bonfeld, Wurttemberg Germany.
As far as I know, they are not Jewish. However, I found a surname index at
my university library that says that the name Ehrmann is Jewish. I have
traced them back to Johann Albrecht Ehrmann, born about 1690 location
unknown, died 1 Jan 1762 in Bonfeld. He married a Maria Elis. Streib and
their children were baptized in the Lutheran Church in Bonfeld. I have
found that there were many Jewish settlements in this part of Germany and
am wondering if it is remotely possible that he was a convert to
Lutheranism?? Am I off track?
