Lookup Request--1890 Ship Arrival Manifests #general

Jim Bennett <bennett@...>
 

I live in faraway Israel, and I just discovered that
my great grandfather's 1890 arrival in New York appears
on a microfilm of ship arrival manifests. Also his
brother-in-law.

Anyone with easy access to an LDS library,
New York Public Library, a NARA branch, etc
is requested to contact me. Maybe one of the
hundreds of JewishGen'ers whom I've helped....

thanks

Szydlow #general

S. Javinsky
 

Dear Genners:

I am the archive coordinator for the Jewish Records Indexing - Poland /
Polish State Archives project to index the Jewish vital records *not*
filmed by the Mormons for the 9 towns in the Pinczow archive. We now have
town leaders in place and activities well underway for 8 of these towns.
More information about our project can be found at:
http://www.jewishgen.org/jri-pl/psa/psapinczow.htm

We still require someone interested in the town of Szydlow to step forward
and volunteer to help with this town's project. Szydlow is located in the
former Kielce guberniya at coordinates 5036,2100. It is 24 miles SE of the
town of Kielce and 60 miles NE of Krakow. This town would represent only a
small project for anyone with family interests there or in the immediate
area.

If you are interested in helping with this town project, please contact
me. We will not be able to move ahead with indexing Szydlow vital records
until someone "adopts" this town for our project. Please don't wait for
someone else to do it - volunteer now !

JRI-Poland passes 1.5 million mark! - New data for 73 towns #general

Jewish Records Indexing - Poland
 

Opportunities for finding references to your family's records in
the Jewish Records Indexing-Poland database have dramatically
increased over the last year, as the database reached 1.5 million
records just as 2001 drew to a close.

This is breathtaking - even for the board of JRI-Poland - because
the searchable database of indices to Polish Jewish records
(primarily those in the Polish State Archives and those
microfilmed by the Mormons) was less than one million at the
end of 2000.

This phemomenal growth reflects effort by hundreds of volunteers
who participate in Shtetl CO-OPs and researchers who support
JRI-Poland's PSA project to enable records for their towns in the
Polish State Archives to be indexed. We also owe a debt of
gratitude to the management and staff of the Polish State Archives,
all of whom have provided exemplary cooperation and support to
the project.

As the records for more and more towns are indexed and the
mass of data grows for many groups of towns, researchers are
not only finding records for their families in towns where they
knew their families lived, but also in many towns and villages
both near and far. Often these places were long forgotten by
our parents and grandparents or, as many have us have learned,
they are towns that had never even been mentioned in any
family stories.

In the last few weeks, data has been added for 73 towns. For
many towns, it is the first time that indices have appeared in the
JRI-Poland database.

New or first time data is now available for the the following
Galician towns in the AGAD Archives project:

Gologory, Kopyczynce, Kudrynce, Mikulince,
Mostiska, Podhajce, Podwoloczyska, Rozdul,
Sokolowka, Strzeliska Nowe, Szczerzec,
Tarnopol, Uscie Biskupie, Zablotow and Zbaraz

New or first time data is also now available for the following towns
(either indexed >from the LDS microfilms by Shtetl CO-OPs or by
the JRI-Poland / Polish State Archives project for records not
filmed by the LDS):

Belchatow, Bialystok, Bielsk, Bodzanow, Brzeziny, Bytom,
Chelm, Ilza, Komarow, Koniecpol, Lublin, Lubraniec,
Nowe Miasto, Nysa, Oleszyce, Pajeczno, Poddebice,
Przasnysz, Rzeszow, Stopnica, Tykocin, Warszawa,
Wegrow, Wyszogrod, Zgierz, Zychlin

For some of the towns in the list above, new and first time data
from certain years and types are searchable while other years
and types have not yet been made "live."

For details about the types of records (births, marriages deaths)
and the years they cover, go to the "Contents of the Database"
page linked >from the home page at www.jewishgen.org/jri-pl.
For information about how you can participate in efforts to make
this data fully searchable in the JRI-Poland database, go to the
"Project Status Page" of the Polish State Archives project at
http://www.jewishgen.org/jri-pl/psa/psastat1.htm
and click on the "Project Information" link for the archive
that holds your town's records.

In addition, new or first time data >from the towns in the following
list are in the final processes and are not currently searchable.
Check the "Project Status" page as outlined above to find out
how you can participate in helping to make data >from these towns
searchable.

Data is arriving regularly >from Shtetl CO-OPs (indexing records
in LDS microfilms), >from the JRI-Poland data entry team in Warsaw
(working on records not filmed by the LDS), and >from the many
archivists in branches in AGAD, Bialystok, Krakow, Przemysl
and Rzeszow (indexing records for which there are no indices
to photocopy). Then there are also projects at the Jewish
Historical Institute, the 1929 Polish Business Directory project
and other special projects to be announced.

As we continue to grow and as we embark on a new year,
JRI-Poland asks each of you to consider what you can do to
help your own research while - at the same time - helping your
fellow researchers today and future generations in the years to
come. Please take a fresh look at the JRI-Poland web site

Bialystok JRI-Poland Indexing Milestone #general

SoniaHoff1@...
 

I am very pleased to announce that all of the birth, marriage and death
records for the city of Bialystok have been indexed and are now available
on the Jewish Records Indexing-Poland database on JewishGen.

The following new records for Bialystok have recently been added to the
JRI-Poland database, to complete the indexing project:

Birth records for 1877, 1878, 1879, 1882
Death records for 1871, 1872, 1873, 1879, 1880, 1881, 1882
Marriage records for 1877, 1878, 1879, 1880, 1881, 1882

The records in the total database for Bialystok are for 1835 through 1889.
All available records held at the Bialystok Archives are included. (Some
additional divorce records will be added shortly). The records for 1835
through 1886 are available on eleven LDS microfilms.

Please go to the JRI-Poland website at <http://www.jewishgen.org/jri-pl>
and press "search the database" to conduct a search for your surnames.

New birth, marriage and death records for 1899 were also added to the JRI-
PL database recently as part of the Bialystok Archives Project. (Records
from 1887 through 1899, not filmed by the Mormons, also all included in
our database). The Polish State Archives staff will continue to index the
next year of records that becomes available when the 100 year privacy rule
no longer applies. So the year 1900 will be next as part of the Bialystok
Archives Project, and an additional year of data will be added each year.

Thanks to all of you who have contributed time and money to this project,
which began in 1997. I particularly want to thank Mr. Aran in Israel and
Mr. Polonovsky in Paris, who did complete translations of the early years
of records, all the volunteers who helped with data, Steve Zedeck, Michael
Tobias, and the leader of JRI-Poland, Stan Diamond.

Most particularly, thanks to Hadassah Lipsius. Her patience, competence
and friendship makes working with JRI-Poland a real pleasure. The success
of the Bialystok vital records indexing is largely due to the efforts of
Mark Halpern, who coordinates the Bialystok Archives Project in addition
many other JRI-PL projects. Thanks to JewishGen for hosting the JRI-PL
database.

Belchatow JRI-PSA year 1900 records and more data added to database! #poland

Ronisl@...
 

Dear Friends and Fellow Belchatow Researchers,

I am pleased to announce that another year of indices (1900) has been added
to the Jewish Records Indexing - Poland database for Belchatow.

In addition, the brides have now been extracted >from the 1868-1874 Belchatow
marriage records and added to the on-line indices. These records were
indexed prior to the formation of the Belchatow Shtetl CO-OP and only the
grooms appeared in the index pages.

To search on-line for your surnames, go to the JRI-Poland web site at
<http://jewishgen.org/jri-pl> and click on "search the database." If you
have searched more widely in the past, key in Belchatow for the new search.

Those of you who have contributed or will contribute $50.00 or more to the
Belchatow Town indexing project, will be eligible to receive the Excel
spreadsheet with all the indices >from 1889 to 1900. The new data will
enable you to expand your research of the time period when not only our
grandparents and their siblings were born and married, but also when many of
our parents, aunts and uncles were born in Belchatow. This allows you to
search for given names, further research those who married into the family,
and manipulate the data in various other ways to glean the most information.
Qualified contributors will be sent the Database Sharing Agreement. When
the signed agreement has been received, the Excel file
will be sent to you.

We are now initiating a "Belchatow Bonanza," an innovative initiative to
raise funds for the NEXT 5-years of Belchatow record indices (1901-1905) -
all at once. The advantage of this approach to you, the researcher, is that
you will be asked to support a single project covering these five years,
rather than a new one each year as additional records become available for
indexing.

Here's how it works, as additional years of records are moved >from the
Belchatow USC to the Polish State Archives, the index pages will be
immediately ordered by JRI-Poland. The next year of records that will be
become available when the 100 year privacy rule no longer applies is 1901.
This should be in early 2002. The money you donate now will keep this
project going for our town.

A minimum contribution of US $36 will entitle you to receive the data as soon
as it has been indexed, and likely in advance of its general availability in
the JRI-Poland Searchable Database.

Please send your tax-deductible contribution to:
Jewish Records Indexing - Poland,
c/o Sheila Salo, Treasurer,
5607 Greenleaf Rd.,
Cheverly, MD 20785,
USA.

You can also contribute by credit card by going to:
http://www.jewishgen.org/jri-pl/visa.htm
You can also telephone Sheila Salo to make your VISA or MasterCard
contribution between 8 a.m. and 8 p.m Eastern time, at (301) 341-1261. The
fax number is
also (301) 341-1261.

All contributions should be marked:

"FOR THE BELCHATOW PROJECT" and/or "FOR THE BELCHATOW BONANZA"

If you send a check, please write this information on the face of the check.
A contribution of $86 dollars or more will get you BOTH the 1889-1900
database now and provide you the Excel Files each year for the next five
years at no additional cost.

Contributors who do not have access to a Visa or MasterCard can make their
donations to JRI-Poland with a "bank draft" in their local currency (or Euros
where applicable), if they live in one of the following countries:

Argentina
Australia
Austria
Belgium
Denmark
France
Germany
Great Britain
Israel
Luxembourg
Mexico
Netherlands
New Zealand
Norway
Poland
Russia
Sweden
Switzerland

If a specific country is not on this list, please contact JRI-Poland
treasurer Sheila Salo at <ssalo@CapAccess.org> and indicate the value of the
contribution. An effort will be made to accept payment in the country's
currency.

Here's how to calculate the amount of the contribution in your own currency:

a) Amount to be contributed in US $ =
b) Equivalent amount in your currency =
c) Add 3% (of b) for currency fluctuation and bank fees =
d) Total of b + c (in local currency) =

Please mail the bank draft to:
Jewish Records Indexing, Inc.
c/o Sheila Salo, Treasurer
5607 Greenleaf Road
Cheverly, MD 20785 USA

Reminder: The currency must match the country! For example, a bank check
from Australia cannot be in Euros or US$.
This procedure covers only donations being made to Jewish Records
Indexing-Poland itself. It does not apply to payments to the Polish State
Archives for the purchase of copies of records for which researchers have
found indices in the JRI-Poland database. Payment for those orders must be
made according to directions in the on-line order form (linked >from the
JRI-Poland "search results").

JRI-Poland is an independent non-profit tax-exempt organization under Section
501(c)(3) of the U.S. Internal Revenue Code.


Information is being added often to the Belchatow ShtetLinks website at:
www.shtetlinks.jewishgen.org/belchatow
and the surviviors site at
http://home.att.net/~belchatow

New additions are also being made to the Yizkor Book site,
http://www.jewishgen.org/yizkor/Belchatow/Belchatow.html,
so also check that as well as the other Belchatow publications housed on that
site. Search the translations under Belchatow to get a complete listing:
http://www.jewishgen.org/yizkor/translations.html

The Pinkas Hakehilot for Belchatow is being translated >from Hebrew now and
will be on-line at the Yizkor Book website soon.

There is more material available about Belchatow -- but translators,
volunteers only please, are needed to help with these. If you can translate
Polish or Yiddish and are willing to contribute your time and skill to this
project, please contact me.

Nowy Sacz (1866--census?) #poland

Daniel Kazez <dkazez@...>
 

In my search for ENGLENDER and ENGLANDER families >from southern Poland, I
got a copy of this Yizkor book:

Raphael Mahler
"Sepher Sandz: The Book on the Jewish Community of Nowy Sacz"
(Tel-Aviv, Israel: Sandzer Society, 1970)

For me, 800 pages of Hebrew was not a welcome sight! But I found a gem on
pages 212-223: In twelve pages, about 400 names (not in Hebrew
characters)--a list, >from 1866, of residents of the town of Nowy Sacz,
neatly arranged by surname, along with information on each person. It took
me only a few seconds to find 8 ENGLENDERs living in this town.

This list seems to be of special importance, because there appear to be no
LDS films for Nowy Sacz.

Discovering that at least one BRODA (>from Zarki, Poland) was jailed at

Palestine"
(London: Vallentine Mitchell, 1996; ISBN 0-85303-323-4 or 0-85303-330-7)

Alas, looking for surnames I did not find BRODA, but I found something
likely of value to other researchers: an 8-page list of persons
"transferred" (by exchange) to Palestine on 10 July 1944. This list (222
people) is on pages 187-194, with surname, name, date and place of birth.
It is easily searchable, and in English.

on a microfilm of ship arrival manifests. Also his
brother-in-law.

Anyone with easy access to an LDS library,
New York Public Library, a NARA branch, etc
is requested to contact me. Maybe one of the
hundreds of JewishGen'ers whom I've helped....

thanks

Dear Genners:

I am the archive coordinator for the Jewish Records Indexing - Poland /
Polish State Archives project to index the Jewish vital records *not*
filmed by the Mormons for the 9 towns in the Pinczow archive. We now have
town leaders in place and activities well underway for 8 of these towns.
More information about our project can be found at:
http://www.jewishgen.org/jri-pl/psa/psapinczow.htm

We still require someone interested in the town of Szydlow to step forward
and volunteer to help with this town's project. Szydlow is located in the
former Kielce guberniya at coordinates 5036,2100. It is 24 miles SE of the
town of Kielce and 60 miles NE of Krakow. This town would represent only a
small project for anyone with family interests there or in the immediate
area.

If you are interested in helping with this town project, please contact
me. We will not be able to move ahead with indexing Szydlow vital records
until someone "adopts" this town for our project. Please don't wait for
someone else to do it - volunteer now !

JewishGen Discussion Group #JewishGen JRI-Poland passes 1.5 million mark! - New data for 73 towns #general

Jewish Records Indexing - Poland
 

Opportunities for finding references to your family's records in
the Jewish Records Indexing-Poland database have dramatically
increased over the last year, as the database reached 1.5 million
records just as 2001 drew to a close.

This is breathtaking - even for the board of JRI-Poland - because
the searchable database of indices to Polish Jewish records
(primarily those in the Polish State Archives and those
microfilmed by the Mormons) was less than one million at the
end of 2000.

This phemomenal growth reflects effort by hundreds of volunteers
who participate in Shtetl CO-OPs and researchers who support
JRI-Poland's PSA project to enable records for their towns in the
Polish State Archives to be indexed. We also owe a debt of
gratitude to the management and staff of the Polish State Archives,
all of whom have provided exemplary cooperation and support to
the project.

As the records for more and more towns are indexed and the
mass of data grows for many groups of towns, researchers are
not only finding records for their families in towns where they
knew their families lived, but also in many towns and villages
both near and far. Often these places were long forgotten by
our parents and grandparents or, as many have us have learned,
they are towns that had never even been mentioned in any
family stories.

In the last few weeks, data has been added for 73 towns. For
many towns, it is the first time that indices have appeared in the
JRI-Poland database.

New or first time data is now available for the the following
Galician towns in the AGAD Archives project:

Gologory, Kopyczynce, Kudrynce, Mikulince,
Mostiska, Podhajce, Podwoloczyska, Rozdul,
Sokolowka, Strzeliska Nowe, Szczerzec,
Tarnopol, Uscie Biskupie, Zablotow and Zbaraz

New or first time data is also now available for the following towns
(either indexed >from the LDS microfilms by Shtetl CO-OPs or by
the JRI-Poland / Polish State Archives project for records not
filmed by the LDS):

Belchatow, Bialystok, Bielsk, Bodzanow, Brzeziny, Bytom,
Chelm, Ilza, Komarow, Koniecpol, Lublin, Lubraniec,
Nowe Miasto, Nysa, Oleszyce, Pajeczno, Poddebice,
Przasnysz, Rzeszow, Stopnica, Tykocin, Warszawa,
Wegrow, Wyszogrod, Zgierz, Zychlin

For some of the towns in the list above, new and first time data
from certain years and types are searchable while other years
and types have not yet been made "live."

For details about the types of records (births, marriages deaths)
and the years they cover, go to the "Contents of the Database"
page linked >from the home page at www.jewishgen.org/jri-pl.
For information about how you can participate in efforts to make
this data fully searchable in the JRI-Poland database, go to the
"Project Status Page" of the Polish State Archives project at
http://www.jewishgen.org/jri-pl/psa/psastat1.htm
and click on the "Project Information" link for the archive
that holds your town's records.

In addition, new or first time data >from the towns in the following
list are in the final processes and are not currently searchable.
Check the "Project Status" page as outlined above to find out
how you can participate in helping to make data >from these towns
searchable.

Data is arriving regularly >from Shtetl CO-OPs (indexing records
in LDS microfilms), >from the JRI-Poland data entry team in Warsaw
(working on records not filmed by the LDS), and >from the many
archivists in branches in AGAD, Bialystok, Krakow, Przemysl
and Rzeszow (indexing records for which there are no indices
to photocopy). Then there are also projects at the Jewish
Historical Institute, the 1929 Polish Business Directory project
and other special projects to be announced.

As we continue to grow and as we embark on a new year,
JRI-Poland asks each of you to consider what you can do to
help your own research while - at the same time - helping your
fellow researchers today and future generations in the years to
come. Please take a fresh look at the JRI-Poland web site

JewishGen Discussion Group #JewishGen Bialystok JRI-Poland Indexing Milestone #general

SoniaHoff1@...
 

I am very pleased to announce that all of the birth, marriage and death
records for the city of Bialystok have been indexed and are now available
on the Jewish Records Indexing-Poland database on JewishGen.

The following new records for Bialystok have recently been added to the
JRI-Poland database, to complete the indexing project:

Birth records for 1877, 1878, 1879, 1882
Death records for 1871, 1872, 1873, 1879, 1880, 1881, 1882
Marriage records for 1877, 1878, 1879, 1880, 1881, 1882

The records in the total database for Bialystok are for 1835 through 1889.
All available records held at the Bialystok Archives are included. (Some
additional divorce records will be added shortly). The records for 1835
through 1886 are available on eleven LDS microfilms.

Please go to the JRI-Poland website at <http://www.jewishgen.org/jri-pl>
and press "search the database" to conduct a search for your surnames.

New birth, marriage and death records for 1899 were also added to the JRI-
PL database recently as part of the Bialystok Archives Project. (Records
from 1887 through 1899, not filmed by the Mormons, also all included in
our database). The Polish State Archives staff will continue to index the
next year of records that becomes available when the 100 year privacy rule
no longer applies. So the year 1900 will be next as part of the Bialystok
Archives Project, and an additional year of data will be added each year.

Thanks to all of you who have contributed time and money to this project,
which began in 1997. I particularly want to thank Mr. Aran in Israel and
Mr. Polonovsky in Paris, who did complete translations of the early years
of records, all the volunteers who helped with data, Steve Zedeck, Michael
Tobias, and the leader of JRI-Poland, Stan Diamond.

Most particularly, thanks to Hadassah Lipsius. Her patience, competence
and friendship makes working with JRI-Poland a real pleasure. The success
of the Bialystok vital records indexing is largely due to the efforts of
Mark Halpern, who coordinates the Bialystok Archives Project in addition
many other JRI-PL projects. Thanks to JewishGen for hosting the JRI-PL
database.

JRI Poland #Poland Belchatow JRI-PSA year 1900 records and more data added to database! #poland

Ronisl@...
 

Dear Friends and Fellow Belchatow Researchers,

I am pleased to announce that another year of indices (1900) has been added
to the Jewish Records Indexing - Poland database for Belchatow.

In addition, the brides have now been extracted >from the 1868-1874 Belchatow
marriage records and added to the on-line indices. These records were
indexed prior to the formation of the Belchatow Shtetl CO-OP and only the
grooms appeared in the index pages.

To search on-line for your surnames, go to the JRI-Poland web site at
<http://jewishgen.org/jri-pl> and click on "search the database." If you
have searched more widely in the past, key in Belchatow for the new search.

Those of you who have contributed or will contribute $50.00 or more to the
Belchatow Town indexing project, will be eligible to receive the Excel
spreadsheet with all the indices >from 1889 to 1900. The new data will
enable you to expand your research of the time period when not only our
grandparents and their siblings were born and married, but also when many of
our parents, aunts and uncles were born in Belchatow. This allows you to
search for given names, further research those who married into the family,
and manipulate the data in various other ways to glean the most information.
Qualified contributors will be sent the Database Sharing Agreement. When
the signed agreement has been received, the Excel file
will be sent to you.

We are now initiating a "Belchatow Bonanza," an innovative initiative to
raise funds for the NEXT 5-years of Belchatow record indices (1901-1905) -
all at once. The advantage of this approach to you, the researcher, is that
you will be asked to support a single project covering these five years,
rather than a new one each year as additional records become available for
indexing.

Here's how it works, as additional years of records are moved >from the
Belchatow USC to the Polish State Archives, the index pages will be
immediately ordered by JRI-Poland. The next year of records that will be
become available when the 100 year privacy rule no longer applies is 1901.
This should be in early 2002. The money you donate now will keep this
project going for our town.

A minimum contribution of US $36 will entitle you to receive the data as soon
as it has been indexed, and likely in advance of its general availability in
the JRI-Poland Searchable Database.

Please send your tax-deductible contribution to:
Jewish Records Indexing - Poland,
c/o Sheila Salo, Treasurer,
5607 Greenleaf Rd.,
Cheverly, MD 20785,
USA.

You can also contribute by credit card by going to:
http://www.jewishgen.org/jri-pl/visa.htm
You can also telephone Sheila Salo to make your VISA or MasterCard
contribution between 8 a.m. and 8 p.m Eastern time, at (301) 341-1261. The
fax number is
also (301) 341-1261.

All contributions should be marked:

"FOR THE BELCHATOW PROJECT" and/or "FOR THE BELCHATOW BONANZA"

If you send a check, please write this information on the face of the check.
A contribution of $86 dollars or more will get you BOTH the 1889-1900
database now and provide you the Excel Files each year for the next five
years at no additional cost.

Contributors who do not have access to a Visa or MasterCard can make their
donations to JRI-Poland with a "bank draft" in their local currency (or Euros
where applicable), if they live in one of the following countries:

Argentina
Australia
Austria
Belgium
Denmark
France
Germany
Great Britain
Israel
Luxembourg
Mexico
Netherlands
New Zealand
Norway
Poland
Russia
Sweden
Switzerland

If a specific country is not on this list, please contact JRI-Poland
treasurer Sheila Salo at <ssalo@CapAccess.org> and indicate the value of the
contribution. An effort will be made to accept payment in the country's
currency.

Here's how to calculate the amount of the contribution in your own currency:

a) Amount to be contributed in US $ =
b) Equivalent amount in your currency =
c) Add 3% (of b) for currency fluctuation and bank fees =
d) Total of b + c (in local currency) =

Please mail the bank draft to:
Jewish Records Indexing, Inc.
c/o Sheila Salo, Treasurer
5607 Greenleaf Road
Cheverly, MD 20785 USA

Reminder: The currency must match the country! For example, a bank check
from Australia cannot be in Euros or US$.
This procedure covers only donations being made to Jewish Records
Indexing-Poland itself. It does not apply to payments to the Polish State
Archives for the purchase of copies of records for which researchers have
found indices in the JRI-Poland database. Payment for those orders must be
made according to directions in the on-line order form (linked >from the
JRI-Poland "search results").

JRI-Poland is an independent non-profit tax-exempt organization under Section
501(c)(3) of the U.S. Internal Revenue Code.


Information is being added often to the Belchatow ShtetLinks website at:
www.shtetlinks.jewishgen.org/belchatow
and the surviviors site at
http://home.att.net/~belchatow

New additions are also being made to the Yizkor Book site,
http://www.jewishgen.org/yizkor/Belchatow/Belchatow.html,
so also check that as well as the other Belchatow publications housed on that
site. Search the translations under Belchatow to get a complete listing:
http://www.jewishgen.org/yizkor/translations.html

The Pinkas Hakehilot for Belchatow is being translated >from Hebrew now and
will be on-line at the Yizkor Book website soon.

There is more material available about Belchatow -- but translators,
volunteers only please, are needed to help with these. If you can translate
Polish or Yiddish and are willing to contribute your time and skill to this
project, please contact me.

JRI Poland #Poland Nowy Sacz (1866--census?) #poland

Daniel Kazez <dkazez@...>
 

In my search for ENGLENDER and ENGLANDER families >from southern Poland, I
got a copy of this Yizkor book:

Raphael Mahler
"Sepher Sandz: The Book on the Jewish Community of Nowy Sacz"
(Tel-Aviv, Israel: Sandzer Society, 1970)

For me, 800 pages of Hebrew was not a welcome sight! But I found a gem on
pages 212-223: In twelve pages, about 400 names (not in Hebrew
characters)--a list, >from 1866, of residents of the town of Nowy Sacz,
neatly arranged by surname, along with information on each person. It took
me only a few seconds to find 8 ENGLENDERs living in this town.

This list seems to be of special importance, because there appear to be no
LDS films for Nowy Sacz.

Discovering that at least one BRODA (>from Zarki, Poland) was jailed at
Bergen-Belsen, I got a copy of this book:

A.N. Oppenheim
"The Chosen People: The Story of the '222 Transport' >from Bergen-Belsen to
Palestine"
(London: Vallentine Mitchell, 1996; ISBN 0-85303-323-4 or 0-85303-330-7)

Alas, looking for surnames I did not find BRODA, but I found something
likely of value to other researchers: an 8-page list of persons
"transferred" (by exchange) to Palestine on 10 July 1944. This list (222
people) is on pages 187-194, with surname, name, date and place of birth.
It is easily searchable, and in English.
