new records from Dabrowa Tarnowska #poland

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.

Dear Group,

I have posted two documents found in the "Book of Homes" >from Hranice in

or knowing any details about Peter Reinitz, his house transaction and his
relations with the Wolf family (which also shows up a lot in my research)

Traude

Dear Genners,

Researching in the Index of Jewish records of Burgenland, Austria, between
1832 and 1895 in GenTeam, I came across EDEL Regina a widow who died in
Eisenstadt in December 24th 1860 at the age of 83.
My GGGGM was regina EDEL who married my GGGGF Peter Jozsef Reinitz. They
lived in Nagykanizsa but in 1822 Regina lived in Kismarton/Eisestadt and
afterwards in Vienna.

I could not find records of the residents of Kismarton in 1822. Can anyone
help?

Thank you,

Still time to register for the IAJGS conference Aug 7-12 #hungary

bounce-3175241-772961@...
 

The annual IAJGS conference has become more of than just your run of the
mill conference. There are no longer merely lectures and workshops.
There are:
- Up to seven concurrent lectures and workshops during each time period
- A track on "Genealogy for Jewish Educators"
- Computer Workshops
- Special Interest Group Luncheons
- Gala Banquet
- Vendor exhibits
- The play, >from Door to Door, by the Seattle Jewish Theater Company.
- Film Festival
- Pre- and post-conference cruises
- Tours during the conference

Events stretch >from 7:30am to at least 10:00pm. There is a morning
minyan (religious service) at 7:10. It is truly an international
conference because there will be attendees >from more than 20 countries.
In addition, it is becoming more common for lecturers to be >from outside
the U.S.

Finally, if you cannot attend, but wish you could, there is LIVE!! This
allows the subscriber to watch some of the best programs on his/her
computer, tablet, or smartphone. LIVE! is, as the name suggests, live
streaming, but it is also available to subscribers for 90 days after the
end of the conference, "on-demand".

If you cannot make this year's conference, plan to attend the one next
year which will be in Orlando, Florida, July 23 - 28, 2017. It can
include pre- or post-conference visits to Disneyworld, which is just a
few miles away.

The conference website is at http://www.iajgs2016.org. Registration is
being accepted on-line until July 24. After July 24, if you'd like to
attend, you can register at the door.

See you in Seattle!

FEGYVERNEK Hungary - KehilaLinks Web Page #hungary

R Blonder
 

Hello,

I created a KehilaLinks site for Fegyvernek Hungary and i am looking
for material.

The Fegyvernek web page will serve two purposes
:

1. Memorialize the Jewish Community that once lived there.

2. Provide a resource for present and future generations of the
descendants of the Jewish people who once lived in that town.


Anything and everything that relates to Fegyvernek and the people who
once lived there would be of interest to viewers/researchers.


Here is a list of the material that I would like to include in the
Fegyvernek web pages:

History and Geography
Family photos of people >from Fegyvernek
Photos and Postcards of Fegyvernek
Biographies, Family Histories
Memories, Reminiscences and Anecdotes.
Travelogues
Documents
Resources: Census lists, Business Directories, etc...



Thank you in advance.

Yizkor Book Project, June 2016 #rabbinic

Lance Ackerfeld <lance.ackerfeld@...>
 

Shalom,

So what can I tell you about the Yizkor Book Project in June? For a start,
there were quite a few new books and entries added over the past month,
which is always great to see. The past month saw, as usual, updates to many
of our existing projects and many of these are getting that much closer to
completion. Hopefully, I'll be able inform you about finalized projects in
the very near future.

Last month I let you know about the necrology database, which is ably led by
Max Heffler, and I am pleased to inform you that around 5,000 new entries
were added to this database over June. This particular database is an
important research tool for finding information about families and
individuals killed in the Holocaust. Yet another piece of the puzzle to help
us learn about our past. For more information, please see:

http://www.jewishgen.org/databases/yizkor/

In my last report I noted the YBMNI (Yizkor Book Main Names Index) and this
too, continues to plough ahead and more entries will be added soon. We are
still in need of volunteers to help us move this project along and if you
would like to help out, have some free time and are proficient with Excel,
I'd like to hear >from you.

Apart >from volunteering, another important way of supporting the work we do,
is by donating to any of our Translation Funds. We have set up these funds
to facilitate the translation of the Yizkor Books by professional
translators and your donation will certainly help to make this happen and
for those of you who are US citizens, donations to the funds are tax exempt.
Please see the link at the end of this report for the JewishGen-erosity page
with details of the various funds.

And now for all the changes and additions that were carried out in the

Yonatan Ben-Ari
 

There are several oral testimonies that Sarah Hinde KANTOR , wife of
Shlomo KANTOR of Karlin (Pinsk) -second half of the 19th cent.-was a
descendant of Reb. Chaim of Volozhin but we don't have the exact link.

Is anyone knowledgeable of the exact link.

TIA

Still time to register for the IAJGS conference Aug 7-12 #rabbinic

Janette Silverman <cochairs@...>
 

The annual IAJGS conference has become more of than just your run of the
mill conference. There are no longer merely lectures and workshops.
There are:
- Up to seven concurrent lectures and workshops during each time period
- A track on "Genealogy for Jewish Educators"
- Computer Workshops
- Special Interest Group Luncheons
- Gala Banquet
- Vendor exhibits
- The play, >from Door to Door, by the Seattle Jewish Theater Company.
- Film Festival
- Pre- and post-conference cruises
- Tours during the conference

Events stretch >from 7:30am to at least 10:00pm. There is a morning
minyan (religious service) at 7:10. It is truly an international
conference because there will be attendees >from more than 20 countries.
In addition, it is becoming more common for lecturers to be >from outside
the U.S.

Finally, if you cannot attend, but wish you could, there is LIVE!! This
allows the subscriber to watch some of the best programs on his/her
computer, tablet, or smartphone. LIVE! is, as the name suggests, live
streaming, but it is also available to subscribers for 90 days after the
end of the conference, "on-demand".

If you cannot make this year's conference, plan to attend the one next
year which will be in Orlando, Florida, July 23 - 28, 2017. It can
include pre- or post-conference visits to Disneyworld, which is just a
few miles away.

The conference website is at http://www.iajgs2016.org. Registration is
being accepted on-line until July 24. After July 24, if you'd like to
attend, you can register at the door.

See you in Seattle!
