Shtetls Cenikov and Krosen #ukraine

theentins <theentins@...>
 

Myron Freedman in his post on September 27, 2000 is looking for the shtetls
Chenikov and Krosen.

I believe the correct towns are Cherikov, SE of Mohilev and Krosnopolia
located SE of Mohilev.

The other possibilities are Chernichov, W of Kiev or Chernigov, 90 miles
north of Kiev.

Gorlice, Poland ShtetLinks Site Updated #galicia

Marjorie Rosenfeld <marjorierosenfeld@...>
 

All those with ties to Gorlice, Poland, will be interested to know that the
ShtetLinks site for Gorlice has recently been updated and now includes a
photo of the former synagogue (under "20th Century") and 18 beautiful photos
taken in the Gorlice Jewish cemetery (under "19th Century").

To see the new photos at the Gorlice ShtetLinks site, as well as my
acknowledgement for them to photographer Kazimierz Migacz in Poland and his
state-side brother Andrzej Migacz (who served as intermediary and
interpreter), go to:

A sweet New Year to all.

Revision List Posting on ViewMate Site #general

Ben Okner <okner@...>
 

As part of the test of the new JewishGen ViewMate site, I have posted to
the site a
Russian-language version of an 1858 Revision List transcript (Item VMT 002)
and also an English translation of the same document (Item VMT 005). These
lists were obtained >from the Kamenets-Podolsk Archives in southern Ukraine
[genealogy service name deleted]. The documents contain information on some of my Okner
relatives who lived in Tulchin, Ukraine (souther Ukraine, Vinnitsa district.)
I am posting these because I thought that they might be of interest to
other Genners to
see what kind of information might be found in the revision lists.
The ViewMate site is located at www.jewishgen.org/viewmate and you should

Dearest Family, Friends, Students, and All,

May the New Year bring us all much Light and Joy ...
May our Path be a gentle one ...
May the Signs be clear ...
May we all reach our goals in the service of God and one another ...
... And more simplicity and selflessness mightn't be bad either ...

To All who do: Well over the Fast
And to All who don't (celebrate Jewish New Year): Much Light and Joy, too!
Love and Light,

Announcing: WIELUN Shtetl CO-OP data on-line #poland

Marcos Frid <marcos_frid@...>
 

Dear JRI-Poland Researchers,

I'm happy to announce that the final installment of microfilmed
Jewish records >from the town of Wielun is now in the JRI-Poland
database. These include birth, marriage, and death records for
the years 1826-1835, 1840-1862, and 1864-1870.

You may search these records at the following address:

http://www.jewishgen.org/JRI-PL/jriplweb.htm

If you want to restrict your search to Wielun, please fill
out the "Town" box in the search form.

Please note that many Jews moved to Lodz in the late 1800's
and early 1900's. Therefore, if your relatives "came from
Lodz" they may have had ancestors in nearby towns such as
Wielun. It may be worth to check!

I want to thank wholehartedly Asher Szmulewicz, who helped
with the indeces of the Russian years (1868-1870). Yasher-
Koach, Asher!

The "post-LDS" records for Wielun, held at the Lodz branch of the
Polish State Archives, will be indexed in the future, as part of
the Lodz PSA project. Hopefully the "missing" years >from the
microfilms (1836-1839, and 1863) will be included as well. Please
refer to the following URL for more information on the status of
the PSA project:

http://www.jewishgen.org/jri-pl/psa/psastat.htm

Shalom,

Marcos Frid

Work has started on indexing Galician records in AGAD archives! #poland

Stanley Diamond
 

Dear friends of Jewish Records Indexing - Poland:
=20
For years, researchers have dreamed of having easy access to=20
the more than 1700 vital record registers for East Galician towns=20
(those currently in Ukraine) stored in the Polish State Archives=20
AGAD branch in Warsaw. Now, the day is at hand!=20

The JRI-Poland AGAD Archives project is officially underway!
=20
First, some background:

The AGAD Archives (Archiwum Gl=F3wne Akt Dawnych / The=20
Central Archives of Historical Records) is the repository for births
marriages and deaths registers for the area of the former former=20
Lw=F3w, Stanislaw=F3w and Tarnopol voivodships (now Lviv, Ivano=20
Frankivsk and Ternopil oblasts in Ukraine). The records are=20
generally written in Polish. In the areas formerly known as Galicia
(included in the Austro-Hungarian Empire), the Polish language=20
had equal status with German. The entries are generally easy to
understand with a few records per page. However, few of these
books are indexed. None of these records have been filmed=20
by the Mormons.

The goal of the JRI-Poland AGAD archives project is to create=20
on-line searchable indices to enable researchers to quickly=20
locate records of potential interest. They will then be able to=20
order them directly >from the AGAD branch of the Polish State=20
Archives using the order form linked to the search results.=20

Details of the project are available on the JRI-Poland web site,=20
AGAD Archives page at: http://www.jewishgen.org/jri-pl/agad.htm
=20
The web site map identifies the 82 towns for which there are=20
registers in the AGAD archives. There is a table that includes=20
both the current and former (Polish) names of the towns and the
records available for each town. These registers also include
records for smaller towns in close proximity of those listed in=20
the table. The red circles group towns into seven separate=20
'regional archive units.' Indexing will be done on a region by
region basis. Each area will be managed by a Regional Archive=20
Coordinator.

Each coordinator will have the responsibility to seek contributions
to raise the necessary funds to pay for the creation of the indices.
The data entry will be done in off-hours by AGAD archive staff
reporting to and being paid directly by JRI-Poland.
=20
JRI-Poland is pleased to announce that Mark Halpern, coordinator
for the very successful Bialystok Archive Project, has volunteered=20
once more and will be the Regional Archive Coordinator for the=20
first AGAD project. This will be for the town of Ternopol and=20
12 nearby towns and villages.=20

The formal announcement of "Tarnopol Region Initiative of the=20
AGAD Archives Indexing Project of JRI-Poland" will be made
very shortly; watch for it!

**important**
While other researchers have already come forward offering to=20
be the Regional Archive Coordinator for other groups of towns
in the Galician collection in the AGAD Archives, *no* appointments
will be made and the next group of towns to indexed will not be=20
selected until the first project is well underway and all the kinks
ironed out! =20

Jewish Records Indexing - Poland, Inc. is an independent non-profit=20
U.S. tax-exempt organization and is hosted by JewishGen. =20
