Viewmate Translation Request - VM50242 Galicia 1880 Birth Record #galicia

Myrna Waters
 

Hi,

I've posted a Vital Record for which I need a translation. It is >from
1880, when the area was a part of Austria, so the record might be
in German script. It is on Viewmate at the following address:

http://www.jewishgen.org/viewmate/viewmateview.asp?key=VM50242

Please respond in the form provided by Viewmate.

This is a Birth Record for Henie Perl, my grandfather's sister. My
ggrandparents were Moses Josef Kurzmann and Sussel Kurzman,
possibly nee Josephson or Margulies. The column headings are at
the top of the 2 pages and the entry is the last one on the pages.

Any assistance in gleaning information about my ancestors would
be appreciated.

Sincerely,
Myrna Slatnick Waters

Writing to State Archives #ukraine

Marilyn Levinson
 

Dear researchers
I would like to write to various state archives mentioned in the Routes
to Roots Foundation literature. Is it best to write to the physical
address
or is there a place where I can find a list of email addresses? Also may
one write the request in English and does one have to send any money in
advance of the research? Finally has any one had any luck with reasonably
prompt responses, months, not years, and is it usual to get no response at
all?
Thank you.

Need help looking in JRI Poland #general

Alberto Guido Chester
 

Dear Genners

I have been on Jewishgen for many years and made good use of the
magnificent JRI Poland database many times.

However, I have never been able to find my own father's birth
information.

I have looked it up using as many tricks as I can imagine, but
without luck.

Maybe someone is smarter?

Given name Uri / Yre / Ire

Surname Schechter / Schachter / Shechter

Place of birth Brzozdowce, Galizia (where the family lived for a while)

Place of residence Rohatyn, Galitzia (where my grandparents came from).

Alternate place: Brzezany, Galitzia (where older siblings=C2=B4 births were
registered)

Date of birth Oct. 1st, 1906

Son of Moshe David Schechter and Sara Schorr.

Any help will be much apreciated!

Hello all. I've posted five vital records in Russian for which I
need a translation. These are all records for the Arfa family. I

Juger Arfan. If I could get a complete translation for these records,
that would greatly be appreciated. >from the other records, I am just
looking for genealogical information.

Thank you very much.

Tombstone Photo Request - Chevra Thillim, Boston #general

Michael Herzlich
 

If anyone in the Boston area is planning to visit the Chevra Thillim
cemetery on Centre Street in West Roxbury I would appreciate it if
you could take photos of two tombstones for myself and a cousin and
forward them to my email address. If the gravesites are not close to
each other the primary photo I am requesting is for Meier Slobodkin
(d 2/26/1912) located at lot 15 grave 18. If it is not too far away
the second request is for Hyman Elias Slobodkin (d 1/1/1906) located
at lot 3 grave 16.

Two German Translations requested for 2 birth records of a sister and brother in 1886 and 1889 - #general

Karen Campbell
 

Dear Friends and Relatives,

We are hoping that one or two of you would be willing to look at the
two German birth records >from Ottensen, Germany, >from 1886 and 1889.
They are of a sister, Marie Johanna Bernhardine Isidore Meier, and her
brother, Carl Hermann Meier. Their mother was our great grandmother
(Marie Johanne Christiane Caroline Meier). We are hoping you can
provide information on their addresses, whether the mother was single
or married, what her occupation was, whether the children were
legitimate or illegitimate, and whether the person who reported the
births was a midwife. We know they were Evangelische but Marie Johanne
Christiane Caroline married a Jewish man, our great grandfather, Simon
Henry, and had 5 or 6 more children in the United States (NYC and
Boston). We are also wondering why no father's information was provided
on the birth records.

The two ViewMate photos can be found at:

Kfar Daniel cemetery #general

Alan Steinfeld
 

Hi,
I recently learned that some relatives were buried in the cemetery at
Kfar Daniel in Israel. There is no listing for a cemetery in this
village in the JOWBR Cemetery Inventory nor is there a listing on
Find A Grave.

Can anyone confirm that this cemetery exists and supply its proper name?
If anyone is in a position to help with a photo of 2 stones at the
cemetery, please contact me privately.

Thanks,

Sources for information on rabbis in Galicia #general

Judith Singer
 

In case anyone else is interested in researching rabbinical genealogy
in Galicia or wants to know the rabbis of various towns, these are the
suggestions I received in response to my question about sources.
Unfortunately for me, there is very little available in English.

Meorei Galicia (Encyclopedia of Galician Sages), 5 volumes, compiled
by Rabbi Meir Wunder contains genealogies of Galician rabbinical
families, listed alphabetically by surname. For prominent rabbis of
each family there is additional biographical material, including
rabbinical compositions, responsa correspondence and photographs.
There is also a town index. It is on-line at
http://jgaliciabukovina.net/limited/digital_books but you have to pay
a small fee to join to get access. It is in Hebrew, but there is a
name index available in English on Gesher Galicia.

Another truly comprehensive book is Otzar Harabanim, compiled by Rabbi
Nathan Zvi FRIEDMAN, which contains 20,000 entries covering the period
930 - 1970. Entries are arranged by first name and then by surname,
with surname and community name as "book name keys". It too is in
Hebrew. I don't know its availablity.

Letoldos Hakehillos Be'Polin lists rabbis in Poland by town.

The Biographical Handbook of Rabbis is a bibliographic directory of
all the rabbis since the Enlightenment who worked in or came from
German-speaking countries. It is online at
http://www.steinheim-institut.de/wiki/index.php/Biographisches_Handbuch_der_Rabbiner_%28BHR%29
[or http://tinyurl.com/gwwcdbn --Mod.]
It is in two parts:
Part 1: The rabbis of the emancipation period in the German, Czech and
Polish large countries, 1781-1871 contains entries for 1,952 rabbis
who were employed in or came >from the German Bundestag and the East
Prussian provinces and Part II: "The rabbis in the German Reich,
1871-1945". Each part can be downloaded for free, but it is huge and
the download would take quite a while (my computer was estimating 4
hours and I have high-speed internet). It is in German.

Gesher Galicia's All Galicia Database includes a few different List of
rabbis >from the 1860s

Another source that has been suggested is the B/M/D registers for each
town. These were submitted to the state annually, and were signed and
sealed by the official "chief rabbi". The officiant at the bris or
wedding should be noted on the record. The Mormons have microfilmed
many of these registers, so they could perhaps be found in the
FamilySearch catalog.
