Varva, Ukraine #ukraine

msack@...
 

Both of my paternal grandparents, Louis Sack and Celia Tantleski (this may
just be the phonetic version of her maiden name), came >from Varva or
someplace near it. Varva is near Priluki and Poltava, and though it is easy
to find on Google, I have been unable to find out anything about it or its
Jewish population on Jewishgen.org or any of the books in the Jewish Library
in San Francisco, where I live. The two grandparents left Ukraine for New
York in 1904.

Does anybody have any information about Varva and nearby towns?

Latest uploads to the All Galicia Database #ukraine

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.

Can you search passenger lists by who the immigrant was going to? #general

A. E. Jordan
 

A research how to question.

I recently made an off-hand comment that it would be great to search the Ellis
Island passenger lists by the name of the person the immigrant was going to and
someone wrote back saying it was possible.

Does anyone know the best place / way to do this? I spend so much time in vital
records that maybe I missed it but searching passenger lists by destination
would be a great tool since I find a lot of family overlaps in that area.

Thanks

A Success Story - Thanks to DNA #general

A. E. Jordan
 

Not a JewishGen success story (at least so far) but none the less a big success
and on my own tree for once.

There's a lesson to be learned about never giving up and trusting everything
you find plus adding in new resources.

Many years ago when I started we found that my material great grandfather came
to the USA to what he said was a "cousin" on his passenger list. At first I
dismissed it since this mystery cousin was both unknown and never appeared again. Later I tried unraveling the connection going as far as contacting the mystery cousin's granddaughter and family and searching out some of his records. Nothing ever came to light.

My brother just had our mother do a DNA test and when the results came back
there is a standout on the list with a high level of match. This person had
already been a weak match on my brother's DNA to the point it had not been one
to actively pursue. Using that strong match plus looking at the location the
person said his tree came >from my brother started to narrow it down. With a
little more unraveling of the tree online we confirmed the DNA match is a good
match for a cousin. Moving back the generation to our mother helped a lot.

We looked at his family tree and did a little research and we found out that
the mystery cousin on the passenger list is actually married to a woman on the
same tree as the DNA match and it turns out her mother is it appears the aunt
of my great grandfather. Same name, same location in the Ukraine and in fact
the head of the DNA match's tree arrived in the USA about 18 months after my
own great grandfather and he was going to that same cousin at the same address!

It was the first DNA match we had that reveled a new branch (as opposed to
confirming things we knew) and demonstrates the value of saving the scraps and
revisiting the mysteries every once in a while.

We would love to find something closer on the tree since we have so little
information out of the Ukraine but it was an exciting addition and the solution
to a long held mystery.

Samuel or Sam ROSENBAUM #general

Robert Avner
 

Looking for assistance in finding when and where Samuel ROSENBAUM died and where
he is buried. His parents were Louis ROSENBAUM and Dora AVNER (Affner). He is
their oldest child born Jan. 1889 according to 1900 census the only one to be
born in Stuchin, Russia/Poland and came to NYC when he was about 2 years old.
His siblings are Victor, Estelle, Sidney and Max all U.S. born.

The last record of him is on the 1925 NY State Census where he is listed as Sam
ROSENBAUM living with his family in Harlem at 111 East 112th St. and before that
as a witness on his brother Victor's 1921 marriage certificate.

He is not the Samuel Rosenbaum who died in 1935 and is on the Mount Richmond
Cemetery list. He is not on the NYC death or marriage index nor buried in any
NYC metropolitan area cemetery listed on the Internet or Beth David, Wellwood,
Beth Moses or Beth Israel etc.

Would appreciate whatever suggestions anyone can offer.

Can contact me directly at: robertavner@yahoo.com
