quarterly update for Necrology Index #lithuania

Joyce Field <jfield@...>
 

The Yiskor Book Project's necrology index has an Erev Pesach present
for the JewishGen family. The quarterly update to the Necrology
index at http://www.jewishgen.org/databases/yizkor has just gone
online in time for Pesach.

Thanks to the work of Ernie Fine, Necrology Project Coordinator,
Warren Blatt, Michael Tobias, and Martin Kessel, over 14,000 new
entries >from 12 yizkor books are now in the Necrology Index, for a
total of 105,000+ entries. Thanks are also due to the Yizkor Book
Project team of John Berman, Lance Ackerfeld, Mike Kalt, Carol Edan,
and Osnat Ramaty who volunteer their efforts day in and day out in
htmling the yizkor translations >from which the names in the Necrology
Index are taken.

The JewishGen Yizkor Book Necrology Database indexes the names of
persons in the necrologies -- the lists of Holocaust martyrs --
published in the Yizkor Books appearing at
http://www.JewishGen.org/JewishGen-erosity/YizkorTrans.html. This
database is only an index of names; it directs researchers back to
the Yizkor Book itself, where more complete information may be
available.

The new entries represent the following countries:

Belarus: 519 records
Hungary: 2160 records
Lithuania: 231 records
Poland: 5830 records
Ukraine: 6102 records


Towns and number of entries >from each town:

Gorodenka, Ukraine: 876
Kolbuszowa, Poland 379
Merkine, Lithuania 231
Oswiecim, Poland 4223
Papa, Hungary 2160
Rogatin, Ukraine 387
Stryy, Ukraine 2721
Suchowola, Poland 342
Turka, Ukraine 1902
Volozhin, Belarus 519
Vysotsk, Ukraine 216
Warsaw, Poland 886

Hag Pesach Sameach to all.

Minimum age for Courland Enlistment Register #latvia

Stan Hertzbach <sshertzbach@...>
 

In the description of the Courland Family Lists database it is stated that
the Recruits Enlistment Registers database "concentrates primarily on the
adult members of the households and does not generally record child entries
from the original list."
Can anyone tell me what was used as an age cutoff?
I see names down to about 10 years of age, but almost nothing below that.

I ask because I'd like to understand if an individual listed in the
Courland Vendomosti database in 1859 might be part of a family group in the
1845 Mitau (Jelgava) Recruits Enlistment Register, although his name does
not appear there. (I suspect I will eventually be asking the Latvian
Archives to complete the connection for me.)

Thanks,
Stan Hertzbach

Thank you for your feedback on Viewmate.

A correction - there is no team - it is just lonely old me.

And yes - ViewMate is currently closed for new posting till April 16th.

Here is why -

->ViewMate is a high maintenance site. I have posted 500+ files in the
past 5 months.

-> The new re-design is an effort to reduce the maintenance load without
sacrificing useability

-> I am awaiting feedback on the re-design.

20th Century Lviv Records #galicia

Bill & Renee Stevens <brstevens@...>
 

Does anyone know whether there are any metrical records for Lviv for the
early part of the 20th century. My paternal grandfather, Szymon GLATTSTEIN,
died in either 1907 or 1908. Since we don't know where he was born -- just
that it was NOT Lemberg/Lvov -- we were hoping that his death record could
point us in the right direction. [researcher name], who I have hired to do
research in the Lviv Archives, tells me that there are no 20th century
records. Any chance that there may be some in Warsaw?

If these records do not exist, any ideas about how I could pursue this
matter. What I know is that he was born about 1860; that his father's name
was Yisroel, and that he had several brothers (no names unfortunately).

Does anyone know about Zniesienie? In one of the records that [the researcher]
unearthed, my father lists Zniesienie as his address (he was actually living
at ul. Asnyka 8 at the time). Could it be the place he was born?

Thank you for all your help and a happy Passover to all.

I have recently visited Kolomyia (Ukrainian spelling/transliteration)
Sep/Oct 2000. I have a few pictures of the town on a personal website. If
you are interested in viewing the pictures, please send me an email
privately. Since I had no research there, we did not stop, but were instead
passing through >from Rahkiv to Chernivtsi and back. Since I have seen so
much discussion on this town, I thought to take a couple of pictures. I
also have a very wonderful guide, that I have used several times, who also
does research. For either the website or guide/research references, please
contact me privately.

Claire:

In September, 2000 I visited several communities near Lezajsk on a
trip with my Father. Details of the trip are on my website
(www.riesenbach.com). While I didn't visit Lezajsk, I did visit a Jewish
cemetery in Sokolow which is near-by. Ours guide had a book (in Polish)
listing the history and location of Jewish cemeteries and institutions in
the area which he used to help us locate the Sokolow cemetery and the
Polish family who had the key to the gate.

The guide was excellent. If you don't have one arranged, I highly recommend
him.

Once again, I am coming to you for help. I need to find my step
grandmother. Her name is Anita Feldman (I dont remember her maiden name).
She lives in Augsburg, (West) Germany. I have an old letter >from her with
the address, but I need to find her phone number. I know she lives with
her sister, and that the phone is listed in the sister's name (Edith).
Again, I dont know Edith's last name. I thought I could do a "reverse
lookup" with just an address, but everything I try tells me I *must* have
a last name. Any suggestions??? It's very important that I contact her
by phone, not by mail. Please respond privately.
