Plock Books of Residents - all data now searchable online #poland

Stanley Diamond
 

On behalf of Jewish Records Indexing - Poland, it is with great pleasure
that I am able to announce that all 17,200 entries in the 1878-1897 Plock
Books of Residents project are now searchable online in the JRI-Poland
database www.jri-poland.org

We are indebted to the project leader Tony Hausner, and the many
researchers, the Gombin Jewish Historical & Genealogical Society and the
Plotzker Young Men's Independent Association, all of whom gave their
generous support to the project.

As researchers may be aware, the data was released in phases as funds were
raised. Until recently only entries for families living on streets with
names starting with the letters A to P were available. Since there are
many streets beginningwith the letter "S" the increase in online data
is substantial.

Here is an overview of the Plock Books of Residents project:
The entries have detailed information on 17,200 individuals, a remarkable
resource for those researching ancestors living in Plock who were born as
early as 1786. There are more than 4400 different surnames (and spelling
variations) and more than 700 other towns mentioned in the database.

Thus, if your family lived anywhere near Plock, you should be checking to
see if any relatives appear in this data.

Books of Residents are a house-by-house census of the families living in
the town. Town officials updated the information for each family on an
ongoing basis over time and recorded all the people living in the house
and moving in and out.

Each entry includes Name, Surname, Father's Name, Mother's Name,
Occupation, Date and Place of Birth or previous place of residence.
In some cases, Dates of Death, Marriage, and Draft Status or other
informative notes are included.

POLISHOVSKI / MYER MYERS #general

myers.r.jacob@...
 

Hey!

I'm looking into my families ancestry, and trying to find out about one
of my great granddads, unfortunately i don't have much information, but
I've been told that he changed his surname >from Polishovski to Myers in
attempt to make crossing the border >from Little Russia easier and to
stay undetected >from the Nazi's.

Does anyone have any validation or more information they can give?

I lived in the UK over 11 years ago, but we moved to New Zealand when
i was 8. (Now 19)

Thanks!

Cuban Jewish Assistance for Holocaust Survivors 1947-1950 #general

Mike Krug
 

Per my father's immigration manifest, Aron Krug (Kruk), born in Chelm,
Poland, indicates he came to NY August 28, 1947, and went to Cuba the next
day, sponsored by a Dr. R. Zilber.
What support did the Havana, Cuba Jewish community provide to Holocaust
survivors trying to immigrate to the U.S. between 1946 - 1950?

Re: NYC Name Change #general

A. E. Jordan
 

Name changes are a little tricky. Yes they did happen and by the 1930s
mostly they did have to go to the court if they were changing their
family name. The earlier date-wise the more likely they either did it
as part of their naturalization or just did it by saying today I will
be.....

The good news though is if they did the change in a court there's a good
paper trail. First challenge is to figure out where they did it. There's
a name change bureau downtown Manhattan and people are still there doing
name changes there. They have ledger books with the records and the files.
I seem to recall they are filed under the old name or maybe both and by
date.

But I think there were multiple courts where you could do it. I seem to
recall the State Supreme Court also has name change files and I assume you
could do it in most of the boroughs.

If the person changed their name in the courts they were required to put a
notice in the newspaper and supply a copy of the notice to the court. I
have seen them in the files. In theory if you could figure out which
newspaper you could search for them that way. Might try Fulton or other
online newspapers. Problem is it is rare it was The New York Times .... a
lot of times it was in the legal paper or a community newspaper.

The files only show the details of the name change .... they do not have
other genealogical info as I recall but it is a while since I retrieved one
of these files.

...she probably changed her name. I'm guessing this would
have occurred in New York City, but possibly in New York State, in the late
1930s. Are such records available for search? I'd be pleased to communicate
offline with anyone who has experience with them. And thanks!

Call for Papers is Now Open for IAJGS 2018 Warsaw Conference -- August 5-10, 2018 #france

IAJGS 2018 Listserv Communications <iajgs2018@...>
 

The IAJGS 2018 Warsaw Conference program committee is delighted to
announce that the Call for Papers is now open for the 38th IAJGS
International Conference on Jewish Genealogy, to be held in Warsaw,
Poland, >from Sunday, 5 August 2018, to Friday, 10 August 2018. This
gathering of Jewish genealogists >from around the world in a place of
historic import to our collective story will be memorable and should
not be missed! English will be the official language.

The conference will be held in a Warsaw convention-center hotel

Nozyk synagogue, Kosher restaurants, and other Warsaw attractions such

hotel details will be announced soon.) The conference will be geared
towards Jewish genealogists who may or may not themselves have roots
in Poland. It will be held in close cooperation with the Polish State
Archives and may also attract archivists >from other countries as
speakers. Panel discussions, one-hour lectures, and shorter 30-minute
presentations are encouraged to be proposed in this Call for Papers.
There will also be a limited number of computer workshops -- if proposals
for them are received.

The Warsaw Conference will be co-hosted by the POLIN Museum of the
History of Polish Jews and by the Emanuel Ringelblum Jewish Historical
Institute of Warsaw, which may each provide speakers on topics closely
related to their respective institutions.

Please visit the conference website at <www.iajgs2018.org> in order to
access the Abstract Submission page. That page provides more detailed
information about what our Program Committee will be looking for in
their review of proposals. Papers may be submitted between now and
11:59 pm (Central Standard Time) 31 December, 2017.

Questions about the Call for Papers or other conference topics may be
addressed to <info@iajgs2018.org> or to the Program Committee at
