Are there any tools that do something like this yet? If not, is
anybody working on developing technology like this?

Gesher Galicia's All Galicia Database and JewishGen's All-Poland and All-Ukraine Databases start data linking agreement #ukraine

Asparagirl <asparagirl@...>
 

Gesher Galicia is proud to announce that we have started a new data
sharing initiative with our friends at JewishGen.org!

Now when you search for a person or a place in the All Galicia
Database (freely available at http://search.geshergalicia.org/), at
the bottom of the page of results, you'll see links to matching search
results in relevant databases at JewishGen. And when you do a search
in JewishGen's All-Ukraine Database or All-Poland Database, at the
bottom of their page of results you'll see links to relevant matches
in the All Galicia Database.

This data sharing is accomplished using Gesher Galicia's new API
(Application Programming Interface), which allows our data to stay
solely on our own servers, but still allows other organizations'
computer systems to quickly see if there are any appropriate matches
in our holdings, and generates the appropriate direct links.
Similarly, JewishGen's data holdings remain solely on their own
servers, but they're able to generate deep links to relevant data
sets, where appropriate.

This important data sharing work was first discussed a few years ago,
with the support and cooperation of our late President Pamela
Weisberger z''l, and we are proud to finally be able to bring this
work to fruition in her memory. Her name remains as a co-author on
the data sharing agreement that was signed by the two groups.

Thank you to Warren Blatt and Michael Tobias for all their hard work
at JewishGen to help make this project into a reality.

Gesher Galicia hopes to use this new API to share our data -- which
currently stands at 455,115 records >from 294 different data sources,
and growing every month -- with more non-profit organizations in the
near future. Happy searching!

Changing Last Names For Emigration #general

David Goldman
 

Hello, Jewishgenners.

My great-grandfather and two of his brothers changed their last names >from
KRASINSKY to GRUBERMAN and GOLDMAN when they left Nova Ushitza for Manchester
England around 1890. I was told that this happened because a Russian-sounding
name would be more of a problem than a German-sounding name in England in
those days because Germany and England were considered "allies."

It is also assumed they "borrowed" their new last names >from some relatives.

Now when it comes to the issue of identification, how could one have
obtained passports for a large family under a borrowed last name?! Was it
simply a matter in those days of getting a passport and the required exit
permit >from the Russian government with the right amount of bribe money?!

And how important could this issue of last names have actually been that
entire families would feel it was so urgent to Germanize their last names
when emigrating to England?

I would recommend the excellent book "Jewish Budapest" - Monuments,

"This richly illustrated history of the Jews in Budapest.....looks..at

Prostejov "old" cemetery website #austria-czech

Joseph Lonstein
 

I apologize if this has already been posted to the SIG, but today I came across
a very interesting and informative website for a restoration project of the "old"
Prostejov cemetery. http://prostejov.zidovskyhrbitov.cz/
The description of the project (thanks to Google Translate) is:


"These websites provide information about the project for rehabilitation of
the old Jewish cemetery in Prostejov, who wants to return this ruined monument
on the spiritual map of the city. At the place where it was in the
years 1801 to 1908 are buried nearly two thousand people, is now a car park
and a park where people >from the neighborhood come to walk the dogs. The
main intention is to return the entire area with human dignity remains necessary
in terms of Jewish tradition and simultaneously allow the functioning of the follow-up
residential area, including the neighboring school. This will provide valuable cultural
monument that will enrich the current Prostejov. The initiator and benefactor of the
project is Rabbi Louis Kestenbaum. We appeal to the general public with a request for
information to previously existing tombstones or other evidence about the history of
the site of the old Jewish cemetery in Prostejov, such as photos, newspaper
articles, recorded memories or official documents."


The links on the site contain pictures, maps, a list of the buried, and links
to news articles related to the project. I have no additional information
about this project or the website.
