Abram and Szprinca GIEWERC or SZAPIR of Lublin, Poland #poland

Dan Oren <doren@...>
 

Dear Colleagues in Jewish Polish Genealogy:
I am trying to find and trace Abram (perhaps Avraham) GIEWERC
(perhaps GEWIRC or GEWERC) and Szprinca GIEWERC (perhaps GEWIRC
or GEWERC) who perhaps changed her surname to SZAFIR.

Abram was likely born 1880-1900 in Wieniawa or Lublin, Poland
and was the son of Wolf and Szewa Brucha. Abram may have died
before WWII or was killed in the Shoah. Shprinca/Shprintza was
likely his daughter, and may have survived the Shoah and perhaps
changed her surname to SZAFIR (and/or was married) and moved to
Canada.

Any concrete help would be most appreciated.
Thank you kindly,

Dan OREN

The fight for an open Missouri birth and death index recognized by top investigative journalism group #general

Asparagirl
 

Non-profit genealogy activist group Reclaim The Records has an ongoing fight
against the Missouri Department of Health and Senior Services, asking for the
first-ever public release of the Missouri birth index (post-1910) and death
index (post-1966). We filed two Missouri Sunshine Law requests with them back
in February 2016, and those requests turned into a lawsuit filed last November,
which is still ongoing.

This week, we were notified that our work in Missouri was one of five finalists
for the 2017 Golden Padlock Award, which is given by a well-known journalism
group called Investigative Reporters and Editors (IRE and NICAR). This award,
according to IRE, is for "the most secretive government agency or individual in
the United States", based on their fight to withhold public data >from the
public. But merely withholding the data is not enough; to be nominated, IRE
requires that the agency or person must also use unusually devious means of
secrecy, lobbying, and/or retribution.

And IRE has decided that Missouri's behavior has been so egregious in their
attempts to withhold the birth and death index, that it has now won one of the
five finalist spots for the 2017 Golden Padlock.

More details here:
https://www.facebook.com/ReclaimTheRecords/posts/793245030826644

The full press release >from IRE is here and the video >from the awards
banquet should be available online soon:
http://www.ire.org/blog/ire-news/2017/06/16/ire-announces-2017-golden-padlock-award-finalists/
[MOD. NOTE: shortened URL - https://goo.gl/zskSA6 ]

This may be the first time that a fight for genealogical records
access has been recognized (and feted!) by a major journalism group as
an example of an open records issue.

Reclaim The Records thanks the hardworking investigative journalists
and editors at IRE for the nomination.

And as for Missouri, our litigation against the Department continues.
We want that birth and death index released to the public, where it
belongs.

New Ukrainian Database #general

Chuck Weinstein <cmw521@...>
 

Jan Allen and others have asked about a new Ukrainian database that expects to
put online by 2020, the largest listing of Ukrainian residents >from 1650-1920
that is available. While Jan had no success in getting on the site, I did. The
entire site is in Ukrainian, although, at least for some pages, it appears
there are Russian and Polish options. Since the search feature only seems to
work in Ukrainian, I am unable to determine if any Jewish names are listed.

Perhaps one of our Ukrainian correspondents can access the site and give us a
better picture of what is available and might be useful. According to their
list of records posted at the site, most seem to be church records for
Catholics and Orthodox Christians, and Russian soldiers of the Red Army. A
complete list, as recorded on the site (and translated by Google Translate, is
as follows:

Metric confessional books and paintings, the Orthodox and Catholic, and the
Czech and German colonists (work continues)
Voter lists the Seimas on Western regions (processed three commune, plans to
process all).
The jury lists skirts and Volyn residents in 1793
The jury lists 1654 (work continues)
User soldiers losses Austro-Hungarian Army in Galicia (partially processed,
work continues)
User soldiers of the Army of World (partially processed, work continues)
User soldiers of the Red Army, 1926 edition
User soldiers Soviet-Finnish war with Ukraine
Diocesan information Volyn and Podolia and "" Historical and statystycheskoe
churches and description of Volyn Diocese pryhodov "
Voivodeship messengers (Volyn, Lviv, Ternopil and Stanislavsky)
The inmates of concentration camps (Talerhof, Soviet prisoners Birch Kartuska
etc.)
User repressed (partially processed, work continues)
Address Book contains the end. XIX - early. XX century (partly processed, work
continues)
Commemorative Address Book and provinces, covering the territory of modern
Ukraine (partially processed, work continues)
The data entered by users of the site and volunteers.
Kiev province Census 1897 (plans to start soon).
Little Rumyantsev description (plans to start soon).

As I don't read or speak Ukrainian, the site is not terribly useful for me, but
others may find it useful. Note the translation above is not complete, and that
some words do not translate well.

The site is https://pra.in.ua/ . By registering, you can add a family tree,
according to the instructions. I strongly suggest, unless you are literate in
Ukrainian, you hold off until there is an English version of the site up.

Introducing a new KehilaLink: Zhabokrych (Zhabokrich), Ukraine #general

Marla Waltman
 

Hi,

I am pleased to announce that a KehilaLink has been produced for Zhabokrych,
Vinnitsya (formerly Polodia), Ukraine. Before the independent of Ukraine,
the town was known as Zhabokrich or, by Jews, Zhabokritch. The KehilaLink
can be found at http://kehilalinks.jewishgen.org/zhabokrich/index.asp . This
webpage could not have been created without the superb technical support of
Richie Baum, on behalf of the Kehilalinks project.

If your family came >from Zhabokrych, they may also have lived or worked at
some point in other nearby towns with large Jewish populations, such as
Kryzhopil' (Kryzhopol), Shpikov, and Kniazhe/Radyanske. I produced a
KehilaLink for Kryzhopil a few years ago that can be found at
http://www.kehilalinks.jewishgen.org/kryzhopol/ .

Your feedback on the Kehilalinks would be appreciated. Should you have
connections to any of the towns of Zhabokrych, Kryzhopil', or
Kniazhe/Radyanske, I would be pleased to hear >from you. I am looking for
memoirs, stories, photos, videos, and other kinds of family or town
information. I hope that you will share your suggestions for new content
with me at waltman.marla@gmail.com.

Thanks and best wishes,
