Extractions of 1860-1883 Bedzin records - new JRI-Poland project #poland

Jeffrey K Cymbler <jcymbler@...>
 

Long-time Bedzin, Sosnowiec, Dabrowa Gornicza and area researchers
will be pleased to learn that Jewish Records Indexing - Poland has
undertaken a major new "Phase 3" project to fully extract all Bedzin
birth, marriage and death records >from 1860 to 1883.

Until now JRI-Poland's indices for 1860-1883 years only contained names
of the persons in the birth, marriage and death records and the year of
the record (act). This is the only information appearing on the index
pages JRI-Poland purchased >from the Katowice Branch of the Polish
State Archives many years ago. These index pages did NOT include
actual date of the event, names of parents, spouses, ages, place of
birth, town of permanent residence or other genealogically relevant data
contained in the records.

To carry out this major record extraction initiative, JRI-Poland
arranged to acquire scans (digital images) of the 1860 to 1883 Bedzin
records in the Katowice Archives. The scans are now on hand.

When data entry for this new project for 1860-1883 records has been
completed and funded, JRI-Poland will have full extracts of all Bedzin
records >from 1808 to 1883 online.

NOTE: Every birth, marriage or death of Jews residing in Sosnowiec,
Dabrowa Gornicza, Strzemieszyce, Czeladz, Zagorze and Modrzejow
was recorded in the Bedzin town hall in the years 1860-1883.

There are 7354 record entries to be extracted. 5663 of these records
(1868-1883) are in Russian. JRI-Poland will be employing Russian
speaking experts in Poland to translate and data enter these records.

The fundraising target to pay for the 1860-1883 scanning and extracting
project is $2,400. Researchers making a qualifying contribution of $118
or more will be eligible to obtain an Excel file with all records for
their family. When funded, the data will be added to the currently
available (full extracts of) 1826 to 1859 Bedzin records in the
JRI-Poland database.

Kindly note that the fundraising target mentioned in the last paragraph
reflects a reduction of $1,100 which are the surplus funds in the
original Bedzin 1860 to 1883 indexing project.

As Town Leaders, we would be delighted to answer any questions that you
may have and we look forward to receiving your financial support for
this project.

Contributions to "Jewish Records Indexing - Poland" may be made by
check, bank draft, money order, or Visa or MasterCard. The web site
for the credit card contribution and general instructions is:

JRI-Poland is an independent non-profit tax-exempt Organization

Belarus SIG #Belarus RE:1887 list of Jewish owners of linen-processing factories in Belarus #belarus

JHRG of Belarus <belshtetl@...>
 

Dear All,
By the mid-19th century, Russia had become the largest country exporting
linen to Europe. It was used for in the production of fabric, oil, cords and
cables. It became one of the fastest-growing industries in Russia.
Some wealthy Jews were investing in linen processing factories, most of which
were in northwest Russia, including today's Belarus.
By the end of the 19th-century, in the territory that's now known as
Belarus, had some 70 linen-processing factories; 41 were Jewish-owned.

Here is the 1887 list of Jewish owners of linen-processing factories in
Belarus:

origin of MIRMOVITSCH family name #belarus

Joel Blankett <jnblank@...>
 

I would be interested in hearing any insights mailing list subscribers
may have into the meaning or origin of the family name MIRMOVITSCH
(variant spellings: Mirmovich / Mermovich / Mirmovitz).

The family of my maternal grandfather, Yechiel David MIRMOVITSCH, lived
in the town of Ryasna (or R'asna), some 60 km east of Mogilev
(Mahilyow), Belarus.
I know there were other Mirmovitsch families living in the same area of
eastern Belarus, in towns and villages on both sides of the present
Russian-Belarus border.
But I have so far not been able to establish any family connections.

Thanks for your help.

INTRO-Researching SCHLOSS, SEEMANN, SCHWARZSCHILD and more #germany

Melody Schloss
 

Hello GerSig,

I just joined the group to help research my husband's German Jewish
family lines. I have been doing genealogy research for 30 years and
consider myself pretty knowledgeable in research here in the US, but
more of a beginner when it comes to German Jewish records.
I live in Santa Barbara CA USA and my native language is English.
I can read some German, and have tried to learn to decipher some old
German schrift but am definitely a beginner there.
I am good at use of the internet for searching purposes, but am not
very tech savvy when it comes to figuring out functional issues.

As I said, I am researching my husband's lines:

Father: Gert SCHLOSS b 15 Sep 1921 Hannover Germany d USA
Grandparents: Isel (Julius) SCHLOSS b 2 Nov 1887 Zimmersrode Germany d USA
Hertha SEEMANN b 4 Apr 1895 Kassel Germany d USA

the US in 1936 and resided in Brooklyn, New York. I believe Thekla
died there but have been unable to locate a death certificate because
of unknown death date.

In reference to Walter ELIAS question about Jewish soldiers in World War I,
I'd like to remind that at war's end the League of Jewish Frontline Soldiers -
Reichsbund juedischer Frontsoldaten -RJF was formed . About 100.000 Jews
living in the Reich had enlisted,in the Army, Navy and Colonial Forces ,
of whom about 12,000 were killed . Forcibly closed in 1934, the League was
re-established in 2006 under the name Bund Juedischer Soldaten (RjF) e.V.
You should ask them about your grandfather..

Re: Isaac/Israel GOODMAN, Chicago #general

Phyllis Kramer
 

Sandie Yeaman asked for help researching her grandfather...
"I have my grandfather buried in Waldheim Cemetery in Chicago next to his wife.
Isaac GOODMAN but buried as Israel Goodman, died may 1899. Annie Goodman died
1925."

Sandie - its best to include all the data you know and perhaps present it in a
tree form; that way the question marks will tell you what you don't know. It's
especially important to include birth years for everyone. I found Israel's
tombstone on jewishdata, so I started with him.

(my gf) Isaac>Israel GOODMAN born c.1864 where? , emigrated ? married
where? when? d. May 1899 Chicago (Waldheim)
(my gm) Annie VALOVITCH/BALOVITXCH? b ? where? married ? ? d.1925 where?
(my a) Leah born <1899 married Joseph SIMON
(my a) Bertha, placed in Bellfair in Ohio with last name of GUTHMAN
(my a) Esther, placed in Bellfair in Ohio with last name of GUTHMAN
(my a) Birdie,
(my u) Adolph born <1899 >1899 in Hull house in Chicago under Edward.
On Edward's birth certificate, mother's maiden name is spelled two
ways: VALOVITCH and BALOVITCH.

I found an Annie Goodman in the 1900 census born June 1868 Russia, a
widow with 5 children, emigrated 1875. looks about right; if you
agree, you might add the information to the tree above. With her is
Leo Goodman born April 1886 Illinois and Ida Goodman, born May 1898
Illinois. If this is your Annie, she must have come with parents and
she must have married in the US. And it is likely that Leo and Ida are
related.

Even if my hunch is incorrect, there are many documents you might look for.

1. Vital Records: The marriage record (go for a record about 1-2 years
before the first child is born), the childrens birth records (try
Cook County, especially via SteveMorse below)
2. Early naturalizations and vital records (before 1917), via IRAD,
the Illinois repository of early records. Just google IRAD. This is
your best source.
3. Chicago voter registrations are on ancestry (go to search catalog,
type in Chicago and look at their databases) and there is an I Goodman
at Judd st in 1892 who became a naturalized citizen in 1891.

and resources:
4. There is a thorough guide to Chicagoland by Mike Karsen and its
available on jewishgen... www.jewishgen.org/infofiles/chicago/ It has
many good links and descriptions of resources
5. Steve Morse has written an excellent front end to searching Cook
County genealogy in one step.

Re: Lodz Census Registration Cards 1916-1921 #general

I've been away or I would have written earlier, but I want to add my voice
to those thanking the Polish State Archives in Lodz and Director Mr. Piotr
Zawilski in particular for making these records publicly available, Roni
Liebowitz and Logan Kleinwaks for each alerting us to them, and JRI-Poland
in general and Stanley Diamond and Michael Tobias for providing links and
writing to the PSA to learn when the remaining cards will come online.

For some of us these records are key to enabling us to find or link together
the names of relatives who were later killed in the Holocaust. I was both
thrilled and saddened to find cards listing a couple of my great-grandparents,
and several uncles, aunts and previously unknown cousins of my grandparents,
all of whom ended up being killed in the Lodz Ghetto. I am immensely grateful
that these records are now available and am eagerly awaiting the uploading of
the remaining cards so that I can seek out cards of other relatives.

All the very best to everyone involved,

The date on he plaque is Nov 17, 1949, which was a Thursday. The corresponding
Hebrew date is 25 Cheshvan 5710 and is correct on the plaque. Because the
Hebrew day begins at sundown, 25 Cheshvan began on Wednesday evening. If Nov
16 is the actual date then 25 Cheshvan may still be good.

The date on he plaque is Nov 17, 1949, which was a Thursday. The corresponding
Hebrew date is 25 Cheshvan 5710 and is correct on the plaque. Because the
Hebrew day begins at sundown, 25 Cheshvan began on Wednesday evening. If Nov
16 is the actual date then 25 Cheshvan may still be good.

I recently posted the translation request for the Memorial Plaque for my
grandmother, Bessie STARR under ViewMate number 43654. My question now is ,
is the Hebrew date correct as the 25 Cheshvan 5710? On the Georgian date it
shows the 17th of November 1949. The Georgian date on the plaque also reads
the 17th of Nov 1929 but on her death certificate is shows Nov. 16, 1949. I
will need to call the Shul that this plaque is in to have it corrected to
read Nov. 16th 1949. I am not sure if the Hebrew date also needs to be
corrected or not.
