Hi:
Regarding the "Kievski Guberniski Vedemosti" you should access Discussion
Group Archives of Oct.11/98 by Vitaly Charny. His very informative letter
gives a detailed discussion of his findings in the Harvard Library.
He was researching the microfilms of the "old Russian offical newspaper==
Kievski Guberniskie Vedemosti" and lists some of his findings. He gives his
address, and he seems to be very knowledgeable. Moreover, he isobviously
capable of interpreting Cyrillic, which I definitely am not. Having accessed
records written in archaic Russian script, I would be hesitant to attempt to
index these microfilms at Harvard if I should find myself in the area.
In the Fall Issue of Avotaynu Vol.XVI No.3, there is an article on "The
Russian National Census of 1897", by Thomas K. Edlund. Most libraries with
extensive Judaica would have a copy of this magazine, if it hasn't been
received by subscription. In the Appendix, he lists the pertinent records at the Latter Day Saints' Family History Library at Utah.

MODERATOR'S NOTE:
Thanks Shirley, for the lead on Vedomosti information. (The 1897 Russian Empire Census is another project entirely.) Vitaly's letter is very descriptive of the Vedomosti contents.

New shtetlinks site for Stanislawow/Ivano-Frankovsk! #galicia

Denise Azbill <famaz@...>
 

Ivano Frankivsk (Stanislawow) ShtetLinks Site

Due to great effort on the part of Susannah Juni, a new ShtetLinks site has
been launched for the city now known as Ivano Frankivsk, formerly
Stanislawow, Stanislau, or Stanisle. You can go there directly by clicking
on:
http://www.jewishgen.org/shtetlinks/juni/stanislawow

or by going to the ShtetLinks Home Page at www.jewishgen.org/shtetlinks/ and
clicking on Ukraine, and then Ivano Frankivsk. Stanislawow was a large city
of more than 100,000 residents, including a thriving Jewish community of
25-30,000 people.

At this time, the site is still a work in progress, but there are great maps
of the area, and many wonderful photographs. We have over 100 researchers
who have asked to have their surnames of interest posted on the researcher's
page. Have a look! You never know-you may have ancestors who lived in
Stanislawow or nearby environs, such as Mariampol, Jezupol, Knihinin and the
Knihinin colonie, Mykietynce, Zagwozdz, Paniczna, Tumierz, Halicz, Pobierce,
and many other shtetls.

If you have a question regarding whether or not a shtetl is in the
administrative district of Stanislawow, please contact Denise Azbill, at
Famaz@prodigy.net.

Exciting news for the near future! Susannah has traveled throughout the
region, and we have a database of literally thousands of records of data,
including photographs both old new, documenting Jewish life in Stanislawow
(Ivano Frankivsk). We are currently working with a database specialist to
enable you to view all of this data, including many more Photo Highlights,
from the website. (The current release of the website contains only a small
sampling of photographs, as well as research sources, links, maps, etc.)
Please check back later in the
year! (Targeted for around July, 2001...) Some of the data was provided by
other
researchers, and if you have data you'd like to contribute, please contact
me later this year, as there will eventually be a mechanism for people to
donate more data to the project.

Volunteers are needed to help submit and computerize data for the SIF
website on ShtetLinks. If you can help, please send an email to Denise
Azbill famaz@prodigy.net No special skills required.

Many, many thanks are due Susannah. She has created a wonderful site, and
we invite you all to visit.

Sincerely,
Denise Azbill

Re: Kievskie Gubernskie Vedomosti Project #ukraine

haflo <haflo@...>
 

Dear Fellow U SIG Members:

As you are probably aware, the Ukraine SIG is investigating the feasibility
of purchasing microfilm of the Kiev Gubernskie Vedomosti, in order to
translate relevant material & make it available on our website. This is
what we've learned so far.

There are 136 reels of microfilm.
In correspondence with the NYPL, we were given this information. The
Gubernskie Vedomosti is on hundreds of microfilm reels. It is too expensive
and almost impossible to make hard copies. They advised us to contact their
vendor Norman Ross Publishing for purchase of the material.

Norman Ross charges about $100 a film, although if you buy the whole set at
once, there's a discount:

Kievskie gubernskie vedomosti, 1838-1917
136 reels of 35mm microfilm -- $11,000

Obviously, we're not able to buy $11,000 worth of microfilm. For now, I'm
putting out an urgent call to our New York members to do some voluntary
library legwork. We need people to look through the available microfilm, &
create an index that describes the contents of each reel. With such an
index, we can then determine our priorities, & work on the most useful
reels in order of relevance. Once we have a descriptive reference point,
we'll have a better idea about how to proceed. (Let me know, too, if one of
you can act as team leader to coordinate this effort.)

If anyone else can give us some ideas on how we can undertake this project
more efficiently & less expensively, I'd be very grateful for your
suggestions. It's alright to share your answers with our mailing list, & I
look forward to any & all helpful thoughts about the project.

Sincerely,
Florence Elman

Re: Looking for SCHNEIDER in Rybotycze #galicia

Rhoda,

There is a website in Polish at:
http://republika.pl/zamki_w_polsce/K/KPR/Rybotycz.htm

delaing with the knight castle (or whatsever have left out of this castle)
in Rybotycze.

Next website describes that Rybotycze used to be a Jewish town, and that
Jewish cemetery is located in Rybotycze.

http://www.workjoy.com.pl/pmap_gos/wiahor/wiahor.html

Generally, Rybotcze was a typical Jewish shtetl in the midst of Ukrainian
population during Poland interwar period. There were 314 Jewish souls out of
1277 of total genearl population.

Nearest railway station was in Nizankowice. Shtetl administration centre was
in Dobromil, on the other (east) side of the San River. Interesting is that
all the land property around shtetl were own by the Academy of Art from
Krakow.

There is not listing for SCHNEIDER in town as per Poland Business Directory.

Few printed Jewish names are:

SANDAHAUS, STECHER, ZINS, RUBINFELD, LIESER, DWULIT, STIFEL, AMSTER,
ROTTENBERG, GLUCK, STEIGER, STERNBACH, LOWNHECH

Search for Czwal family information #galicia

Lois Schwall <lschwall@...>
 

Dear Members;

We are searching for information about the Czwal (now Schwall) family.
They lived in Rzeszow (Reisha) around 1900. The father was David, who
married Regina Messer. David had a small business, probably a store of
some sort. David and Regina had four children, Samuel, Benjamin, Maria
(Manya) and Etka (Esther?).

David brought his oldest son, Samuel, to Boston around 1900, but
returned to Rzeszow with his son after a short period. Samuel later
went to Boston alone as a teen aged boy and became a US citizen in
1912. Another son, Benjamin, studied medicine in Vienna and served as a
physician in the Kaiser's army during WW1, spending some time in
Bratislava. The site of his later medical practice is not known.
Around 1939/1940, he said he was going to flee into Russia and he was
not heard >from again. The daughter Manya (Maria) served as a nurse
during WW1 and was given a medal for distinguished service in Vienna in
1915. She married and moved to Berlin, where her husband, Josef
Fleischer, was an insurance agent. Manya resumed nursing at the Jewish
Hospital in Berlin during the late 1930's, at which time she sent their
only child, Lucy, to live with Samuel's family in Boston. She and her
husband came to the US in 1941, via Portugal. Almost nothing is known
about the younger Czwal daughter, Etka (Esther?), who was not heard from
after this time.

David and Regina Czwal may have come into Rzeszow >from an outlying
area. We wonder if they modified the family name because we can find no
records of any Czwals. The descendants of Samuel Czwal (Schwall) would
very much appreciate any information you may be able to provide.

Thank you.
