Name: LUBIN/WOLF #general

Ruth Rosenbloom <ruthmf@...>
 

Can anyone confirm -- or deny -- my instinct, that the name LUBIN
(a family in Lithuania) has a meaning related to the animal, wolf?
There is a somewhat undefined relationship to a family named Wolf,
and I'm wondering if the WOLFs may have been Lubins who changed
their name to an English (or German)equivalent.

Pinsk Photo Album #general

For those interested in the city of Pinsk, here's a little something for
you.

Posted on the UN's Web site for Belarus, this is a scenic overview of the
City of Pinsk. An aerial shot of the main Synagogue is included in this
rather sanitized collection of images of historic buildings, river views
and streets. Some images are accompanied by English captions, while
others are in Cyrillic only or are blank. Navigate the album using the
arrow on the lower right of your screen.

http://www.un.minsk.by/publications/Pinsk/pinsk0.html

There is little of use here >from a research standpoint, but it is a little
interesting. I am working on getting additional photos of Jewish Pinsk,
which will be posted to the research group site, pending the construction
of a shtetlinks site on JewishGen.

Dear Friends,
Not being an attorney, I need some advice on how copyright laws work.
Recently I posted a comment about a cousin who instructed everyone to
refuse to share genealogical information with me. The reply >from someone I
found on JGFF, and with whom I offered to share information, was positively
vitriolic.Now I learn that he has taken this vendetta [over the spelling of
several names!!!] one step further and has copyrighted his research. The
problem is, that much of his research is based on information that I
personally supplied to him, including branches >from my great-grandparents
down to my own grandchildren. Does this law now say that he "owns" this
information, so that if I should choose to print a family tree for my
children, I would be violating a law? Surely that is not the intent of
copyright laws, to turn genealogists -- amateur or professional -- into
criminals. I'd appreciate hearing >from some of you mavens on the
ramifications for all of us in such an instance.

Tarnow sig? #general

Judith Romney Wegner
 

Dear Genners,

Until now I paid little attention to information about Polish cities as I
was not researching anyone >from Eastern Europe. But an extraordinary
development leads my husband to believe that his father Lew WEIDEN (Lev
VEIDEN) -- shot by the KGB in Leningrad when my husband was 5 years old)
was born in Tarnow (near Cracow) in 1903.

So, is anybody researching Tarnow in the 19th and early 20th centuries?
And can anyone steer me to a Polish researcher in Tarnow who for a
reasonable fee could locate the 1903 birth entry for Lew WEIDEN (father's
name Isaak WEIDEN, mother's name unknown) and photocopy it for me?
Please reply privately to jrw@brown.edu

The CA Death Records Index covers the period 1940-1997.
The SSDI includes few deaths prior to 1965.
Did your relative die between 1940 and 1965?

Przemysl PSA project #galicia

RivkaLCJ@...
 

Dear Fellow Researchers,

The Jewish vital records in the Przemysl Branch of the Polish State Archives
are now available for indexing under the PSA / Jewish Records Indexing -
Poland project. I have agreed to become the Archive Coordinator for the
Przemysl PSA project.

The Przemysl Archive holding include the following 19th century birth,
marriage, and death records:

Town Births Marriages Deaths
Jaroslaw 196 13 1 38
Oleszyce 2040 101 1508
Przemysl 16104 1244 17864
Radymno 73 39

As outlined in the description of the Polish State Archives project on the
JRI-Poland web site < http://www.jewishgen.org/JRI-PL/psa/psastat.htm> ,
volunteer Town Leaders have the responsibility for raising the funds for the
indexing of their town's records. I am seeking Town Leaders for Oleszyce and
Przemysl. I will do the fundraising for Jaroslaw and Radymno. Anyone
interested in serving as a Town Leader or Co-Town Leader please contact me at
<rivkalcj@aol.com>.

There are no microfilms of Jewish vital records for these towns. Therefore,
the indexing work will be carried out by staff at the Przemysl archives
working directly for JRI-Poland. The cost for indexing the records is
estimated to be $2500 for Przemysl and about $225 for Oleszyce. The final
cost will be determined by the fields to be included in the indices.

As soon as Town Leaders are available for Przemysl and Jaroslaw, the project
will be announced on JRI-Poland and JewishGen, fundraising will begin and the
order to start the indexing work in Poland will be placed. I look forward
to coordinating this Project and hope that all researchers interested in
Przemysl, Jaroslaw, Oleszyce, and Radymno will participate in it.


Sincerely,
