Changing of Street Names #galicia

Rita Falbel <falbelr@...>
 

In response to Steve Jaron's question about the changing of street
names in Galicia:

My grandfather, Josef Sigal lived in the Zamartyno'w section of Lvov.
We were confused when the name of the street changed on the
postcards he wrote >from Waska to Cyganowka. We thought he had
moved apartments. However, I found a map, available on JewishGen,
that showed that Waska had been changed to Cyganowka sometime
in 1941. That may answer the question.

This morning while working on a new file, I came across the name of a
place that did not appear on our shtetl map. I searched it on our
website where I found a reference to files held in the Kaunas Regional
Archive. Of course that led me to further research, and I did find it
- an error on my part as the one who maintains both the shtetl list
and the map. I've uploaded a new shtetl list to our site and updated
our interactive map

Indices to 1916-1935 Lodz Marriage & Death records now searchable on JRI-Poland #poland

Stanley Diamond
 

Jewish Records Indexing - Poland is pleased to announce a Pesach
gift to all researchers with roots in Lodz and nearby towns.

In collaboration with the Douglas E. Goldman Jewish Genealogy
Center at Beit Hatfutsot - The Museum of the Jewish People in
Tel Aviv, JRI-Poland is proud to announce a milestone project,
unique in our history.

In a massive indexing effort under the guidance of Database
Department Director, Haim Ghiuzeli, volunteers at Beit Hatfutsot
have data-entered almost 90,000 marriage and death records
covering the years 1916-1935 >from scans provided by JRI-Poland.
Never before have we added a batch of records of this size >from
one town at one time.

As part of our Phase Three initiative to expedite work on records
indexing and extraction, JRI-Poland has acquired scans of records
from many towns in Poland. Scans include Lodz 1907 to 1915
Russian language birth, marriage and death records and 1916-1935
Polish language marriages and deaths (births less than 100 years old
are protected by Polish privacy laws).

The indexing of the 90,000 1916-1935 Lodz marriage and death
records is just the first part of the massive project ultimately to
provide extracts of all genealogical-relevant information >from
Lodz records, starting in 1826. Because Lodz has more surviving
records than any other town in Poland, we will be asking for
your help and support.

We know that researchers will want to obtain copies of their family
records as soon as possible. However, we ask that you wait for
additional information to be posted *after May 1st* - particularly
details of the policies to be established and the team that is being
set up to provide researchers with scans of their family records.
Contact information will be provided at that time.

In the meantime, Chag Sameach Pesach

Question about a street in Stanislwow and/or Zablotow #galicia

Steve Jaron
 

Hello my fellow Galitzianers!

I was wondering if any amongst you knows or knows someone who knows
whether a specific street changed names after the war. My 2nd great uncle
lived and worked on Pelesza 21 as a dentist. >from what I understand that is
where the rest of the family lived before they moved to Vienna. According to
the GG Map Room it was in Zablotowskie in 1941 near the Israel Friedhof,
which I also have questions about, but one thing at a time. If the street and
the building still exist I was hoping to get a picture at some point.

Thanks in advance!

Answer your DNA questions at IAJGS 2017 Orlando! #austria-czech

Adam Brown
 

Don't miss out on a golden opportunity to make sense of your DNA
results at IAJGS 2017 Orlando with over two dozen lectures, workshops
and mentoring sessions on all aspects of DNA research!

Experienced practitioners of autosomal DNA analysis such as Israel
Pickholz, Lara Diamond, and Schelly Dardashti will discuss the
particular challenges of endogamy faced by Jewish genealogists.

Representatives of DNA test providers such as FamilyTreeDNA,
MyHeritage, and Ancestry will describe how to understand their
results in our Sunday EXPO! and again throughout the week at their
booths in the conference Exhibit Hall.

In addition, seasoned DNA project managers will lead participants
in a four-part series that lasts all week. In DNA 101: Solving
Research Problems with DNA Testing, Rachel Unkefer will discuss why
genealogists are disappointed in the outcome when they begin testing
without a concrete goal in mind. She will describe how successful
testing begins with posing questions, and then selecting the correct
DNA tests and family members to answer those questions. Attendees
will learn how to set testing goals and how to navigate the testing
and analysis processes.

In the next session in the sequence, DNA 201: The Next Steps, Family
Tree DNA project managers Rachel Unkefer, Janet Akaha, Gil Bardige,
Adam Brown, Itzhak Epstein, Zach Gordon, Michael Waas, Sidney Sachs,
Max Heffler, and others will work collaboratively with participants
to assess the current status of their own research and discuss
strategies for moving forward. This session will be followed all week
long with group and one-on-one mentoring sessions to help attendees
make the best use of their autosomal, Y-DNA and mitochondrial results.

On the Y chromosome front, DNA 301: What Y-DNA Lineages Can Tell Us
About Jewish History and Migration will focus on "Next Generation
Sequencing" (NGS) products like FTDNA's Big Y and others. The panel of
"citizen scientists" will describe how they have begun mapping out
genetic trees that are far more accurate than ever before possible.

Lastly, DNA 401: The Key to Successful DNA Projects will feature a
panel of DNA project administrators who will describe how to organize
geographic, surname, and haplogroup subclade projects; whether to
include Y-DNA, mitochondrial DNA and/or autosomal DNA testing in
proposed projects; techniques for keeping participants engaged; and
best practices.

Computer workshops will focus on tools such as GEDMatch, Lazarus, and
McKee that are used by genealogists to parse autosomal and Y
chromosome results. Family genealogists such as Mark Strauss (both
Ashkenazi and Sephardi) who have undertaken DNA projects to complete
their family trees will also describe their strategies and successes.
Jeff Paull and his team will describe their rabbinic DNA research, in
particular their current work on the well-known Twersky dynasty.

On Monday evening of the conference, Jewish DNA pioneer Dr. Harry
Ostrer and linguist Alexandre Beider will deliver a lecture entitled
"Setting the Record Straight: DNA and Yiddish as Evidence for the
Origins of Ashkenazi Jews", and at Thursday evening's banquet, Harvard
Professor Henry Louis Gates, host of PBS's "Finding Your Roots" will
speak on "Genetics and Genealogy in America".

On Thursday afternoon, Karen Grinzaid >from Emory University will address
Jewish genetic diseases and options for affordable and accessible genetic
screening for Jewish families.

Adam Brown, co-chair of this year's IAJGS conference is also the Managing
Editor of AvotaynuOnline.com and the Administrator of the 5,000
participant AvotaynuDNA Project. Adam will provide an update on the
Project's Sephardi DNA initiative that is entering its second year of
testing Sephardi men all over the world in collaboration with genetic
genealogy pioneer Dr. Karl Skorecki of the Technion.

So if making use of your DNA results to illuminate your family history is
on your agenda, or you simply want to make sense of the DNA test results
you have already obtained, then Orlando 2017 is the place to be!
Register today at www.iajgs2017.org while there are still hotel rooms
available!

Ukraine in Lviv (TsDIAL), Fond 701/1/314. (2,154 records)
This completes all the Jewish vital records for Stryj held in
Ukrainian state archives.

Tarnopol (Ternopil)
- Jewish births, 1900. Central State Historical Archives of Ukraine in
Lviv (TsDIAL), Fond 701/1/336. (545 records)

Zborow (Zboriv)
- Jewish births, 1838-1864. Central State Historical Archives of
Ukraine in Lviv (TsDIAL), Fond 701/1/69. (850 records)

We have also indexed and uploaded three short files >from the Ukrainian
State Archive of Ivano-Frankivsk Oblast (DAIFO), for the towns of
Sniatyn and Zablotow. These records have not been microfilmed. Apart
from 37 books of Jewish vital records >from the town of Stanislawow
(now Ivano-Frankivsk) itself, the Sniatyn and Zablotow books appear to
be the only other Jewish Galician vital record books currently held at
DAIFO:

- Sniatyn. Jewish births, 1937. DAIFO, Fond 9/1/10. (39 records)
- Zablotow (Zabolotiv). Jewish marriages, 1937. DAIFO, Fond 9/1/103.
(19 records)
- Zablotow (Zabolotiv). Jewish deaths, 1937. DAIFO, Fond 9/1/104. (31 records)


Of the 65 towns with known Jewish Galician vital records in Ukrainian
state archives, Gesher Galicia has now uploaded to the All Galicia
Database (AGD) the indexes for 33 complete town sets:
Bialy Kamien, Borszczow, Brody, Brzezany, Bukaczowce, Czortkow,
Drohobycz, Grzymalow, Horodenka, Husiatyn, Jagielnica, Jezierzany,
Kolomyja, Kozielniki, Kudrynce, Mosty Wielkie, Nadworna, Okopy,
Podwoloczyska, Probuzna, Sambor, Sniatyn, Stary Sambor (Stare Miasto),
Stryj, Swirz, Turka, Tyczyn, Winniki, Zablotow, Zbaraz, Zimna Woda,
Zloczow, and Zolkiew.

By the end of this 2017, we expect to have completed and uploaded to
the AGD all the records in Ukrainian archives for a further 10 towns:
Budzanow, Gliniany, Grodek Jagiellonski, Jezierna, Krystynopol,
Narajow, Olesko, Rozdol, Rudki, and Zborow.

Eight towns have been partially completed:
Kosow, Lwow, Lwow-Zniesienie, Mielnica, Mikulince, Mosciska,
Stanislawow, and Tarnopol.
The over 130,000 Lwow records already indexed over nine years by Eric
Bloch and his team, and generously donated to Gesher Galicia for
uploading to the AGD, represent some 90% of all the Lwow Jewish vital
records currently in the Ukrainian archives.

Five towns have been fully completed by Jewish Records Indexing-Poland
and uploaded to their online database:
Kozlow, Krzywcze, Rzeszow, Skalat, and Sokal.


Coming to the All Galicia Database soon:
- Zborow D 1819-1846, 1876
- Tarnopol D 1877-1878
- Stanislawow M 1928-1930
- Krystynopol M certificates 1933
- Bolechow D 1811-1846
