new records from Dabrowa Tarnowska #galicia

Howard Fink
 

I am very pleased to announce that JRI-Poland has just acquired more
vital records >from the Tarnow branch of the Polish State Archives from
the town of Dabrowa Tarnowska.

Our index of Dabrowa PSA data, which previously covered Births in years
up through 1913, has now been extended to the new limit of the recent
Polish privacy law changes. For the first time we have Marriage and
Death records >from this town, since no records of these types seem to
have survived >from the earlier years. JRI-Poland now has the index of
surviving records of those types up through 1935, and has also acquired
one more year of Births, >from 1915. This update adds about 1500 new
vital records >from Dabrowa Tarnowska.

While not every year is present in this new data, many are:
Births: 1915
Marriages: 1915-1918, 1920-1935
Deaths: 1916-1917, 1919-1920, 1922, 1925-1926, 1929-1931, 1935
The missing years of Death records are not known to exist at this time;
The 1919 Marriages do exist, but are located in another archive branch.

Until JRI-Poland recovers the cost we have spent to acquire these
records this new data will not be available online. However, those who
make qualified contributions will get access to this data right away.

This is a new Dabrowa Tarnowska PSA Project (B 1915, MD 1915-1935).
The Qualifying Contribution required to access the data before it has
been fully funded (and becomes available online) is $75.

You can see our project status online:
http://jri-poland.org/town/dabrowa_tarnows.htm

Information about various ways of contributing can be found at:
http://jri-poland.org/support.htm
Please indicate the allocation of your contribution as
"Dabrowa Tarnowska PSA".

Please contact me if you would like to know if a (short) list of your
specific family members are present in this new data.

Re: Two immigrants, same name: one real, one fake #general

Susan&David
 

If you look up two immigrants on Ancestry.com. (One is indexed as Elie
LITKOWECKY, 1906, the other as Elie SITKOWETZKY) you will see one
recorded in the Rosenbaum Bank and the other in the Blitztein Bank.
These two Philadelphia banks served as places where steamship tickets
could be purchased in the US for the use of immigrants.
See: the Pennsylvania section under Jewishgen>Databases>United States

I believe that the sponsor, Dr, Fischer, bought the 1906 ticket for the
real Elie who, for some reason, was unable to travel at that time. Since
he was married when he arrived 1907, it may have been that he needed an
additional ticket for his wife. The ticket, under his name, would have
been available for someone else to use.

Dr. Fischer then used the other immigrant bank in 1907 to finance the
real Elie and his wife.

Search baby from Miskolcz killed in 1944 #general

דוד נ.א.
 

Hello
I'm looking for the name of the baby, who lived in the town Miskolcz, and
killed about age 2 in 1944.

Is it practical?

Is there a way to get birth records dating back to 1942? There were those
records? They survived? They are protected by privacy?
Is there could be other records (census registration Holocaust victims) of
these years - include babies?

Of course I know her parents' names and other details about the family. I
just do not know her name - I know it was there and was killed.

It has a chance?

Many thanks in advance
David Nesher

INTRO - researching Zwikler Poland/Germany #germany

Anita Berk <nwsgrp@...>
 

Hello GerSig,

I just joined the group. I have been doing genealogy research for 30 years,
mostly in Belarus and Lithuania. I consider myself to be an expert in general,
however a beginner in doing German Jewish Genealogy research. I live in
Colorado. My native and only language is English. I consider myself expert
in using a computer. My experience in using the Internet is extensive.
My primary research goals now are to translate the German documents I
found in the US Holocaust Museum and to learn what records may exist
in Germany.

I just located family who left Poland and went to Germany, or maybe the
records are >from German occupied Poland.

Documents will be posted on viewmate. Your help would be much appreciated.

Thank you, Anita Berk in Colorado nwsgrp@...

Hello GerSig,
My sister in law and I have been working on our family genealogy for while
now and just completed it however I am continuing my research. Our cousin
had done the family genealogy some years ago so we were able to use her
findings. I am computer literate and able to do research but have run
0ut of places to look.

We have most relative dates but not always dates of birth going right back
to the beginning.

My primary goal now is to track down our Jewish connection which has been
difficult as I have so little information, particularly on my Grandmothers
side and the Patriarch of our family.

1: SCHUHMACHER Heinrich arrived in Cape Town South Africa in 1724 from
Bosau Holstein Germany where he changed his name to Hendrik SCHOEMAN . He
was married twice. Wife no 1: Martha OLIVIER, Wife no 2: Johanna BOTHA .


2.: SCHOEMAN Marthinus Gerhardus b 20 April 1876 d 9 August 1947. (My
direct Grandfather 6th Generation) ( I have found photos of their
gravestones on eGGSA)

3: SCHOEMAN Elizabeth Gertruida (nee VENTER) b 6 June 1884 d 8 April 1958.
(My Grandmother.) They passed away in Potchefstroom, South Africa.

I am South African born and bred now living in Perth Western Australia. My
native language is English but I speak fluent Afrikaans as well.

Kindest regards, Anne Prince, Perth, Western Australia laidlaw1@...

How to find records for female relatives #ukraine

Herbert Lazerow
 

<Does anyone know if there is a way to find marriage records or birth
records that include girls and women or any other records?>
The official marriage records compiled by the court rabbis of the
Jewish communities will give the full name of the bride which will
include the name of her father, his status (usually townsperson) and
the town in which he is registered.
Birth records provide he mother's married name, including her
father's given name and patronymic. They do not show the mother's
maiden name. The same is true of death records. A woman's death record
will often include her husband's given name and patronymic.
To the extent that those records have survived, they should be in
the appropriate oblast archive. Miriam Weiner in her book Jewish Roots
in Ukraine and Moldova lists surviving Bershad marriage records for
1845 in the archive in Vinnitsa, and for 1855-58 in the archive in
Kamenets-Podolskii.
As to whether the sister might have perished in World War II,
given life expectancies then, it is unlikely that she would have lived
that long, and even less likely that her mother would have. But it is
certainly possible. Many Jews fled east in front of the Nazi armies
and survived the war in places like Tashkent.
