New additions to the All Galicia Database #galicia

Tony Kahane <tkahane@...>
 

Gesher Galicia is pleased to announce the addition of a further 6,680
vital records, as well as a new set of landowner records, on the All
Galicia Database. This database is free and available to all. See:
http://search.geshergalicia.org

a) Stary Sambor (Stare Miasto). Births 1856-1876. Central State
Historical Archives of Ukraine, Lviv (TsDIAL), Fond 701/01/310. (980
records).

b) Kudrynce. Deaths 1853-1876. Central State Historical Archives of
Ukraine, Lviv (TsDIAL), Fond 701/01/96. (242 records).

c) Lwow. Central State Historical Archives of Ukraine, Lviv (TsDIAL)
- Fond 701/01/122 and 128. Births 1838-1849 (1,912 records)
- Births 1814-1834 (>from LDS microfilm 905274) (1,703 records)
- Fond 701/01/140. Deaths 1872

d) Mikulince. Two books of records >from the Central State Historical
Archives of Ukraine, Lviv (TsDIAL), which had been indexed some
years ago, have been revised, the first of them significantly.
- Fond 701/01/160. This book claims to be a death index book in the
archives' inventory. However, after a Gesher Galicia member alerted
us, we examined it and found it to be a hybrid. It was originally used
as a birth index book (and its printed headings are indeed intended
for birth indexes) for the years 1858 and 1859. Later, the 1858 and
1859 birth indexes were crossed out, and the same book was used as a
death index book, for records >from 1835-1857. The contents are
therefore:
Birth index book 1858, 1859 (119 records), and
Death index book 1835-1857 (954 records).

- Fond 701/01/162 and 163. This book contains Deaths 1877 and 1855
(418 records). There have not been many changes to the actual
contents of this dataset, but rather to its title and description.


In addition, we have uploaded a book of landowner records:
e) Hlibow. Landowners 1828. Central State Historical Archives of
Ukraine, Lviv (TsDIAL), Fond 186/01/7472. (227 records)


We are grateful to a number of people who have kindly worked on some
of these indexes, including: Eric Bloch and his indexing team, Marcia
Feinberg, Emily Garber, Piotr Gumola, Mark Jacobson, Jeff Kaiser and
Russ Maurer.

Tips and Advise for Researching Old Synagogues in New York City #general

Jacob Heisler <jacob.heisler@...>
 

Hi everyone,

I want to try researching synagogues my ancestors went to as a genealogy
strategy, both to get a better sense of how they lived and maybe even find
some of my family on old records. But first, I thought I would ask you for
some suggestions on the best way to do it. I especially want to ask about
the following:

1. What kind of synagogue records could plausibly still survive? I know a
lot would depend on the individual synagogue and rabbi, but I would still
like a general idea what survived, and where I could find it, especially
if it isn't necessarily the largest synagogue. For example, two of my
great-great-grandparents were married in Am Kedoshim Anshei Bobrika, a
small synagogue used by people >from the Galician town of Bobrka, by an
Abraham Paget. What could have survived >from that synagogue or that man?

2. The New York City Municipal Archives has a WPA survey made in the 1930s
on synagogues (both existing and already defunct). I plan on making a
visit there soon. Can someone who already went through those records tell
me what to expect >from the survey?

If anyone has anything else they want to tell me that might be useful,
please let me know.

From,
Jacob Heisler.

Locating records from Ivonifka, Vinnyts'ka oblast #general

Laurie Sosna
 

Hello,

I have located U.S. immigration manifests and naturalization papers for
several SOSNA family members born in Ivanovka (with various spellings).

I believe the actual town is Ivonifka, located at 48.365383, 28.033591
near Yaruga and 13.5 miles SE >from Mohilev-Podilskyi.

I cannot seem to locate records on the JewishGen website for this town.

Any advice would be most appreciated.

MARGONINSKY / MARGONINSKI in Krojanke (Krajenka) #general

Stephen Falk <sfalkjd@...>
 

Last night, I ran across an extensive MARGONINSKY famiy tree on the Family
Tree of the Jewish People. It was posted in 2000 by JewishGen researcher no.
47868. I have sent a message to the researcher through the FTJP website, but
I have not been able to determine who this researcher is.

The tree posted by researcher no. 47868 seems to confirm my recent suspicion
that my ggg grandmother Mirre MARGOLINSKI (with L) was a daughter of Hirsch
MARGONINSKI (Y) of Krojanke, son of Joseph Hirsch MARGONINSKI, earlier
referred to as Joseph Hirsch MARGOLINSKI. I am hoping to reach this
researcher to learn more about the sources for the information posted on the
FTJP and whether there is more information available about this family.

Mirre MARGOLINSKI (ca.1788-1865, Allentein, East Prussia (Olsztyn, Poland)
married Lewin (Jehuda) RAPHAELSOHN (d.1822) and had four children, including
my gg grandfather Michael Hirsch RAPHAELSOHN (1819-1879). Lewin RAPHAELSOHN
was almost certainly Lewin Abraham of Krojanke, who took the name Lewin
Raphael RAPHAELSOHN in Krojanke in 1812. After the death of her first
husband, Mirre re-married in 1825 to Salomon COHN (b.1779), who came to
Allenstein >from Rosenberg, West Prussia (Susz, Poland).

This MARGONINSKY / MARGONINSKI family includes the well-known Berlin and
later New York genealogist Albert PHIEBIG (1908-2004). (His JGFF entry has
not been updated to reflect the fact that he has died (researcher no. 1561).)

I would, of course, be interested in hearing >from anyone with connections to,
or information about, the MARGONINSKI family >from Krojanke, West Prussia,
Germany (now Krajenka, Poland).

All the best,
Stephen Falk

Need help with ViewMate #49213 translation #general

Jean Konzal <konzalj@...>
 

My grandmother's gravestone has been translated, but either the second given
name or the surname of her father is a mystery. It seems to start with a 'T'
either "Tor'rot" or "Torreros" or on the passenger manifest, something like
"Torres." But all her American documents list her as either Pollack or Pole.
She is >from the town of either Lapitz or Pukhovitz in the Minsk region of Belarus.

Does anyone have any possible explanation?

Thanks for your help.

Tamar Amit <ta.genealogy@...>
 

Dear siggers,

Four more registrations were uploaded to Viewmate >from my newly
enhanced BECKER branch .

I'd appreciate any assistance with exact dates, names of parents,
spouses including maiden names, occupations, ages, where they came
from, if they were still alive at the time, other relatives etc.
I think I made outs some of the names but could not understand
relationships or status.

Bialystok City Vital Records #poland

Mark Gordon <urbana44@...>
 

During the past week, the Archiwum Panstwowe w Bialymstoku has
added significantly more digital images to its online collection of
Jewish birth, marriage, divorce and death records for the City of
Bialystok. This Archives had previously digitized City records up
to 1886 sourced directly >from Mormon Church microfilms. The new
images, comprised of high resolution color scans, cover years 1887-
1910. While most of these records had been previously indexed in
a joint project involving the Archives staff and Jewish Records
Indexing - Poland (JRI-PL), now the original images are newly
available online.

Many of these new scans are exclusively in Russian Cyrillic script
since they do not include the Hebrew columns noted in some earlier
years.
Shown below is a link to this file:
http://szukajwarchiwach.pl/4/264/0/str/1/100?ps=True&tabJednostki

An alternate way to access this file is to initiate an indexing search
through JRI-PL and then click on the archival link at the top of the
results.

Re: Looking for a photo of an Edmonton Cemetery, England, gravestone #general

Hi Roy,

The short answer is, there are no photographs of the graves at the of the
Federation of Synagogues Edmonton Cemetery or of the Western Synagogues
Edmonton Cemetery online, except for those on the website of "Cemetery
Scribes".

Do you have the grave ref's.? Which one of the 2 Edmonton Cemeteries? let me
know, as I could pay a visit to take the photographs for you before I attend
the IAJGS Conference in Seattle.
