Congregation Child Isaac Burial Society #general

Gary Pokrassa
 

My wife's GGF and GGM Morris and Tillie Silverman are buried in the
Congregation Child Isaac landsmanschaft in Mt Zion Cemetery in Maspeth NY.

This society is long out of business and the cemetery office had no
information for me.

I cannot find it in the museum of family history former synagogue listing
for NYC.

Does anyone have any information on this?

Leonard was born in Winnipeg 7 Aug 1919, but lived mostly in Detroit, Mich.
He died 26 Jun 1996. His wife Jennie Zelda Brandt was born in Detroit. He

Changing civil names in Hungary after 1866 #hungary

mehadrin@...
 

Yesterday, I spent some time reviewing recordbooks for the town Verbo, =
now Vrbove (near Piestany) in Slovakia, looking for records of my =
ancestors. It is about the time of my grandfather's 140th birthday and =
after a great deal of searching I found his birth record and even know =
that his circumcision was performed on time and not delayed. It seemed =
to me after hours of searching through books that not only were civil =
names not always consistent (e.g. in 1877 my great-grandfather is =
refered to as Aron Blau, but some years earlier he was refered to as =
Adolf Blau, althouigh his Hebrew name used within the community was =
always Aron). The more I read these books the more it seemed as if there =
was a pattern, in the 1850s and 1860s the nams were always >from the =
formal selection of names on the approved list. In the 1870s and 1880s =
you sometimes saw Hungarian, Hebrew and Yiddish names recorded.=20
Since, as we know The Austro-Hungarian Compromise of 1867 (German: =
Ausgleich, Hungarian: Kiegyez=E9s), established the dual monarchy of =
Austria-Hungary, I wondered if there was a new law about which names =
could be recorded after that time? Since it was now the Kingdom of =
Hungary the mandatory Germanic names were no longer required, and hence =
Aron could list under his "real" name and no longer was mandated to be =
called Adolf.
i have not seen this observation reported, but it seems very likely, and =
I think it is important to bear in mind.
I will try and find more information about the official lists of names.
In an almost unrelated matter, I noticed how limited the number of towns =
in Slovakia is whose Jewish records have been made available online at =
familysearch.org. Frequently the Catholic records of a town are already =
available but the Jewish records are not yet ready. I wondered if there =
is a list of which towns are "in the works?"

Kosice records - final update #hungary

Peter Absolon
 

Shalom,

I'd like to let you know that I finished the Kosice records
acquisition and transcription.

If you look at the page I've set up for this project
(http://hsig.absolon.eu) you should see all green tick marks for all
types of records.

Since I started my work back in September last year, I photographed
and transcribed (with help of other collaborators):

5394 births
1077 marriages
2284 deaths

Certain part of the records are already available to you in JewishGen
Hungary Database. The rest will still have to go through quality
checks and will be hopefully available soon (as also mentioned in
Sarah Feuerstein's recent post).

I'd like to express my gratitude to all who contributed to this
project - as without your donations it wouldn't be possible at all.
I'd like to thank my collaborators, Andras Hischler and Linda Rakoff
and of course to Sarah Feuerstein, who has to go through all of these
to spot and correct possible mistakes and errors.

Thank you all,

Best regards
Peter Absolon

Latest uploads to the All Galicia Database #poland

Gesher Galicia SIG
 

Gesher Galicia is pleased to announce the addition of new sets of
Jewish records on the All Galicia Database - a database that is free
and available to all. See: https://search.geshergalicia.org

Bolechow (Bolekhiv)
- Jewish deaths 1811-1846, 1860-1876. Central State Historical
Archives of Ukraine in Lviv (TsDIAL), Fond 701/1/6 and 9. (3,771
records)


Jezierna (Ozerna)
- Jewish births 1886-1893, 1898-1922. Central State Historical
Archives of Ukraine in Lviv (TsDIAL), Fond 701/1/251 and 252. (1,507
records)
This completes all the Jewish vital records for Jezierna held in
Ukrainian state archives.


Tarnopol (Ternopil)
- Jewish community census (index book) 1880. AGAD, Warsaw, Fond 300,
Sygn. 1728. (7,471 records).
Many pages of this book are damaged and the first two or three pages
are missing completely. Possibly around 85% of the records in the
original book are visible and decipherable. This important document
complements the index book of the 1890 Jewish Tarnopol census and the
full 1910 census - both of which have been transcribed by Gesher
Galicia and are searchable on the All Galicia Database.

Gesher Galicia wishes to thank Michal Majewski and Eddy Mitelsbach for
their work on these records.


Zborow (Zboriv)
- Jewish births 1838-1864. Central State Historical Archives of
Ukraine in Lviv (TsDIAL), Fond 701/1/69. (851 records)
This is a significant update to a set of indexes that had been
uploaded earlier to the database and previously announced. Gesher
Galicia wishes to thank Ann Harris for her help on these and other
Zborow records.


Przemyslany (Peremyshliany)
- Jewish tax payers, 1936. State Archive of Ternopil Oblast (DATO).
Fond 231/1/3009. (240 records).
The spreadsheet for this record set, indexed about four years ago, had
gone astray. Gesher Galicia wishes to thank Joan Adler for her work on
it at the time, and for recently sending the spreadsheet again, having
realized that the original spreadsheet had not been uploaded to the
database.


The following transcriptions of index books held in the Przemysl state
archive, Fond 154, which had been earlier uploaded and announced, have
been updated:
- Sanok, Jewish births (index book), 1864-1939 (3,734 records);
- Sanok, Jewish marriages (index book) (grooms only), 1916-1939 (705 records);
- Sanok, Jewish deaths (index book), 1914-1939 (1,814 records).


Vital records coming to the All Galicia Database soon:
- Budzanow (Budaniv) - B, D 1825-1866; D 1825-1866; M 1881-1908, 1910-1939;
- Tarnopol (Ternopil) - M 1859-1876;
- Stanislawow (Ivano-Frankivsk) - M 1932, 1933.
