New/Upcoming Data #danzig #gdansk #germany #poland

Logan J. Kleinwaks
 

I have just submitted to JewishGen the following datasets to be added
to the searchable Danzig Database, which is included in both
JewishGen's Germany and Poland Databases:

1) Danzig births 1905-1931, >from FHL microfilm 1184407/2.

2) Judenporzellan Purchased by Danzig Jews, database-friendly version
of http://www.jewishgen.org/danzig/judenporzellan.php, which was just
added to our website thanks to the research of Dr. Tobias Schenk.
This is a small but very interesting dataset that can help with
pre-surname research. If you are researching anyone on the 1814
surname adoption list or earlier, you should examine this. The
Remarks include speculative links to the 1814 surname adoption list --
please let me know if you can prove or disprove any of them, or if you
know of other links, even if speculative. The 1814 surname adoption
list at http://jewishgen.org/danzig/1814.php has been updated with the
speculation, and you might start by consulting it, if you already know
what surname you are looking for.

3) Protected Jews >from Hoppenbruch, Stolzenberg, and Langfuhr, 1773,
database-friendly version of http://www.jewishgen.org/danzig/1773.php,
which has been on our website for a while (though only recently
proofread).

When these datasets go live in the Germany and Poland Databases, I
will make another announcement.

To help prioritize ongoing and future transcription efforts, I would
appreciate your completing the following short survey that asks about
which time periods you are interested in, whether you might want to
volunteer to transcribe, etc.: https://goo.gl/forms/HQddpV0Eklq53tNH2.
Thank you.

American Jewish women returning to pre WWII Poland to marry? #general

Susan <susan.lieberman@...>
 

At dinner on Rosh Hashanah a woman told me the following story. In 1936
or 1937 her mother and her aunt both single and living in Brooklyn --
very timid women -- went back to Poland near Warsaw where they were
born and married men so the men became eligible to come to the United
States as husbands of American citizens. Her question was how did this
happen ? Did some organization send them?

ViewMate translation/handwriting help - French #general

Deborah Blinder
 

I've posted a vital record in French with which I need a little help.
It is the birth record for my uncle Jaques BLENDER (known as Jacob
BLINDER in the United States). I don't need a full translation,
because my French is good enough for me to read and understand the
document, but I'm having trouble with the handwriting in one word and
one name.

The document is on ViewMate at
http://www.jewishgen.org/viewmate/viewmateview.asp?key=VM50437
with full details of where I need help. Please respond via the form
provided in the ViewMate application.

Thank you very much.

Bychawa (Lublin) Projects Moving Ahead! #general

RobinnM@...
 

Dear fellow researchers!

If you have an interest in Bychawa, an interesting little town in the
Lublin region whose pre-war Jewish population was something like 80% of
the town... I have good news for you! Please contact me as we have new
data of interest including but not limited to full extractions of the
Cyrillic years.

This is one of my ancestral towns, and so I've collected data back into
the 1790's which is unusual, but there was a surviving Kahal register
from that time period in the Lublin branch of the Polish State Archives.
Can't go into detail here, but if you are interested in Bychawa, and
willing to participate in my current research adventure, please contact me
privately at: RobinnM@aol.com. Hope to hear >from old and new friends, and
to all... Shanah Tovah!

historical context, please -- Poland just before WWI #general

Deborah Long <debbietheteacher@...>
 

Dear Colleagues,

I recently received this translation of a comment about a great-uncle:
"[He was] permanently dismissed >from the military unit by the verdict
dated 19^th October 1906 #1735. The verdict of the World Congress of the
regional patrol of the Tribunal of June 9th, 1908 year, No. 7011
sentenced to prison for three months. Accepted into military service in
1908. Enlisted in the militia on 10th November, 1910."

The comment can be found in a Polish census for the town of Jezow near
Lodz.

Could anyone please offer some context for what was happening at this
time in this part of Poland and why my relative would have been sent to
prison? And if he was "permanently dismissed," why did he enlist in the
militia later? Or is this perhaps an example of forced conscription?
What is the World Congress?

Thanks for any help.

What sources are available to prove that someone lived in the US for the

Specifically Texas and West Virginia.

There are several people finders online. Which is your favorite and
