Rieke Nash z''l #poland

Stanley Diamond
 

Dear friends:

It is with a heavy heart and a deep feeling of sadness and loss
that I share with you the news of the passing of Rieke Nash of
Sydney, Australia after a long illness.

Rieke and husband Peter were regular attendees at the annual
conferences and all who had the opportunity to meet her knew
that they had encountered a wonderful lady in every sense.

As President of the Jewish Genealogical Society of Australia and
a devoted Jewish Records Indexing - Poland volunteer, Rieke was
a friend, colleague and mentor to countless researchers at home
and abroad. In her devotion to the role of JRI-Poland Wloclawek
Archive Coordinator for more than fifteen years, we have been
witness to Rieke's unique talents for collaboration and helpfulness.

As a family historian, Rieke was an indefatigable researcher,
traveling to archives around the world in her efforts to unravel
her family's ancestry.

On behalf of the executive committee and board of JRI-Poland, I
extend our deepest sympathies to Rieke's husband Peter and the
entire Nash family. May her memory be for a blessing and may
they know no further sorrow.

Stanley Diamond
Executive Director, Jewish Records Indexing - Poland

Online Polish Records/Research #general

Stevi Sanderowitz <steviraab@...>
 

Dear JewishGen members:

I am seeking help regarding accessing digital copies of Polish vital
records online. Specifically, I am trying to locate documents on the
Mertryi website using the index information I obtained on JRI-Poland
(i.e., year, location, names, and Akta number).

Two examples are 1) 1874 birth record of my gggm Chaje Fradel
KON>KOHN; and 2) the 1873 marriage record of my ggggp Szlama>Solomon
KON>KOHN and Estera KALISKA. #1 is listed as Akta 66 (Lask, Piotrkow)
and #2 is listed as Akta 5 (Pabianece).

Here is the potentially corresponding document I located -

Beginning of modern vital registers in modern Hessen [Hessen historical geography] #germany

Gerhard Buck <buckidstein@...>
 

Nearly a month ago, there was an exchange of e-mails about the beginning
of the modern Standesamtsregister (vital registers) in the territories
that now form the Federal State of Hessen. I asked the new archive
(Personenstandsarchiv in Neustadt near Marburg), that collects,
digitizes and publishes the registers, for help.

They told me that in the former state of Hessen-Darmstadt these books
start on January 1, 1876 and in the former Prussian district of
Hessen-Kassel on October 1, 1874. >from my own work I know that in
Nassau, the second part of the Prussian province of Hessen-Nassau, the
same date is true.

Today is the 70^th birthday of the Federal State of Hessen. It was
founded by the Americans on September 19, 1945 by uniting the Prussian
province of Hessen-Nassau (without a smaller part of Nassau east of the
Rhine) and the state of Hessen (capital Darmstadt; without its
territories west of the Rhine).

I know that you may despair, when you read this. But these changes are
the daily bread of regional historians.

need is a vital record that shows Abraham's wife's maiden name. His
immigration record shows him to be a brother-in-law of my wife's
great grandfather. But I have no idea if he was married to a sister of
my wife's great grandfather, or to a sister of her great grandmother. >

Per Gesher Galicia Town Locator and JewishGen Gazetteer, Hruszow in
Drohobycz district is located at 4928/2336 and is 9.2 miles NNE of
Drohobycz. Hruszow in Jaworow district and Wielkie Oczy Jewish
district is located at 5005/2319 and is 10.8 miles NNW of Jaworow.
Neither Hruszow had a significant Jewish community.

After an extensive search in Ancestry with no luck tracing any of this
family either, I tried searching JRI-Poland for surnames phonetically
like MILCH and MILEH. < http://jri-poland.org/jriplweb.htm >

BINGO! JRI-Poland has indexed three birth records in Wielkie Oczy PSA
located in Fond 1729 of Przemysl Archive with no link to online images.

- Moses MILCH/ADLER born 1883 (akta 60 sygnatura 2) was born to
Abraham Joel MILCH and Neche ADLER of Hruszow.

- Freide Rechel MILCH/ADLER born 1900 (akta 33 sygnatura 1) was
born to Abraham MILCH and Neche ADLER of Hruszow.

- Chajm Ber MILEH/ADLER was born 1882 (akta 26 sygnatura 2) to
Abraham Moses MILEH and Neche ADLER of Hruszow.

Wielkie Oczy Surnames 1876-1902
< http://jri-poland.org/psa/wielkie_oczy_surn.htm >

JRI-Poland's index clarifies that the family is >from Hruszow in Jaworow
administrative district and provides the maiden name of Abraham's
wife. Based on Galician Jewish families using both parents' surnames
(official and unofficial), perhaps the family changed their name to
ADLER in the USA. The double given names in the index provide
additional clues.

Good luck!

Re: I can't trace the Milch family that arrived in America from Hruszow #galicia

Thanks to everybody that replied to my email request! As usual, people
were very helpful, and once again I found flaws in my method of
searching. What I've learned is that everybody needs to do the same
search, on both ancestry.com and familysearch.org . For example, I
had tried searching for the town name of Hruszow, and people living in
Massachusetts. That town name was on a WWI draft card for one of the
family members that I was looking for. However, only Familysearch.org
had transcribed the town name and put it in their database.
Ancestry.com did not!

Also, one person did find Abraham Milch listed as a father in Hruszow
birth records, in the JRI database. I could swear that I had searched
that database without finding him. I must have had snow blindness.
More likely, I was getting fatigued at that point.

Very much appreciated to all who responded.

In 1900, Abraham Milch and his son Chaim arrived, born in 1857 and
1883. The town they list where they came from, is Hruszow. In 1902,
Moris Milch arrived, and specified his contact person as his father
Abraham Milch, living in 16 Minden St, Roxbury Massachusetts. I
cannot find any records for these people in the Boston city directories,
or any censuses. >
