JOWBR Grows Past the 3.2 Million Record Mark! #courland #latvia

Nolan Altman
 

JewishGen is proud to announce its 2017 year end update to the JOWBR
(JewishGen's Online Worldwide Burial Registry) database. The JOWBR database
can be accessed at www.jewishgen.org/databases/Cemetery/ If you're a new
JOWBR user, we recommend that you visit our screencast page at
www.jewishgen.org/databases/Cemetery/Screencasts/ and take a look at the
first two explanatory screencasts.

This update, adds approximately 105,000 new records and 25,000 new photos.
The database is adding and/or updating 519 cemeteries. This update brings
JOWBR's holdings to 3.23 million records >from close to 7,400 cemeteries /
cemetery sections representing 130 countries!

Once again, donors for this update include a mix of individuals, Jewish
genealogical societies, historical societies and museums. We appreciate
all our donor's submissions and the transliteration work done by a faithful
group of JewishGen volunteers.

Significant additions to JOWBR by country include:

. Canada - approximately 2,100 records and 9,800 photos for Baron de
Hirsch - De la Savane Cemetery and other Quebec cemeteries
. Argentina - approximately 2,800 records >from new and existing
cemeteries.
. Czechia (Formerly Czech Republic) - approximately 2,100 new records
. Germany - approximately 17,100 new records for new and existing
cemeteries
. Moldova - added 2 new cemeteries with 2,600 records and a new
cemetery with 700 records
. Poland -approximately 6,000 new records >from new cemeteries
. Romania -approximately 3,200 >from updated data.
. Ukraine -approximately 3,300 records, mostly >from new
Transcarpathian cemeteries
. United States - approximately 38,500 new records and 6,200 photos
for 42 new and 81 updated cemeteries, highlighted by approximately 29,800
Cincinnati area records.

In addition to those additions, other significant additions to the database
include collections >from Germany, Romania (Arad), Czech Republic
(Praha-Zizkov and Straznice), France, Moldova, Turkey (Istanbul), Croatia
(Zagreb), Colombia (Medellin), Ukraine (Dnipropetrovsk) and the United
States. Please see www.jewishgen.org/databases/Cemetery/tree/CemList.htm for
a complete listing of all cemeteries in JOWBR.

I want to particularly thank Eric Feinstein who has been finding and gaining
permission to add many non-US records >from Germany, France and
under-represented countries. Eric's group of volunteers includes Sandra
Bennet, Lyn Bos, Malka Chosnek, George Goldschmied, Ann Meddin Hellmann,
Maurice Kessler, Hans Nord, Marilyn Shalks, Deborah Ross, Suzanne Tarica,
and Simon Zelman. In addition, a big thank you to our volunteer
transliterators, led by Gilberto Jugend, without whom we would not be able
to add the information >from some very difficult to read photos.

We appreciate all the work our donors have done and encourage you to make
additional submissions. Whether you work on a cemetery / cemetery section
individually or consider a group project for your local Society, temple or
other group, it's your submissions that help grow the JOWBR database and
make it possible for researchers and family members to find answers they
otherwise might not. Please also consider other organizations you may be
affiliated with that may already have done cemetery indexing that would
consider having their records included in the JOWBR database.

Memorial Plaques Database Grows to 169,000 Records. Please help us grow! #courland #latvia

Nolan Altman
 

JewishGen is proud to announce its 2017 year-end update for the Memorial
Plaques Database (MPD). The MPD database can be accessed at
http://www.jewishgen.org/databases/Memorial/ The MPD database includes the
data >from plaques and Yizkor lists >from synagogue and other organizations.
Many of these sources include patronymic information.

This update added approximately 12,000 records and 1,800 photos >from 11
synagogues in the United States, Hungary and Tunisia. This update brings the
Memorial Plaques holdings to 169,000 records and 117,000 photos from
approximately 260 synagogues / institutions representing 11 countries.

We believe that the MPD is a good example of how users of JewishGen's
databases can "give back". If you are a member of a synagogue or other
organization with memorial plaques or Yizkor lists, please consider helping
us to grow this database. You can find more information on submitting data
at http://www.jewishgen.org/databases/Memorial/Submit.htm If you have
additional questions, please contact me directly.

Austria-Hungary gazetteer of 1900 online! #galicia

Phyllis Kramer
 

In 1900 the Austria-Hungarian Empire conducted a thorough review of
every city, town and hamlet -- 14 volumes in all. Although the detailed
documents were destroyed, a summary of every town is available, and
much of it is online! Alas, this census included no surnames, but...

Would you want to know how many people, Jews, synagogues, acres,
houses, or even pigs were in your shtetl in 1900? Those answers are (in
German) in the Gemeindelexikon der im Reichsrate vertretenen
Konigreiche und Lander -- the Gazetteer of the Crown Lands and
Territories, Volume 12: Galizien (Galicia) Vienna, 1907.

I found this Galician gazetteer online (the LDS has microfilms) on the
genealogy wiki. For Galicia, go to
http://wiki-de.genealogy.net/w/index.php?title=Datei:Oesterreich-12.djvu&page=1

Here are the steps. (Browsing will waste much time.)

1. Start at the Halychina Genealogy web site at
http://www.halgal.com/gemeindelexikon.html and read the explanation.

2. Download their wonderful town finding aid from
http://galiziengermandescendants.org/Data/galizien_village_finding_aid.pdf
This will give you the page number for your town. There are two items
for each town -- schools/churches/synagogues and administrative
information. That is why there are two sets of pages for each town.

For instance (and these are approximate):

Brody pp. 54-61, 835
Jaslo pp. 249, 866
Kolomea pp. 290-293, 875
Krakau pp. 304-313, 878
Lemburg pp. 336-343, 883
Przemysl pp. 480-485, 908
Rohatyn pp. 522-529, 916
Rzeszow pp. 556-563, 921
Stanislau pp. 630-637, 908
Stryj pp. 648-655, 937
Tarnow pp. 692-701, 944

Use the + to make the image larger, and the previous/next page to
browse. The right column shows the administrative information
(abbreviations are described on page 9) and the index to all towns begins
on page 965.

By the way, this PDF is a fabulous downloadable tool to understand the
administrative districts for every Galician town!

Happy Hunting!!

Jewish Records for Temesvar Hungary now Timisoara Romania #austria-czech

robertbhanscom@...
 

I have been trying to locate Jewish records for what was formerly
Temesvar, Temesvar megye, Hungary -- now Timisoara, Romania. A branch
of my TAUBER family was living there as early as the 1790s, and I am
eager to sort them out. However, without the help of births,
marriages, and deaths, I'm left to guesswork.

Does anybody know if such records exist? If so, how can I access them?

Thanks--
