New educational webinars from Gesher Galicia #galicia #events

Steven Turner
 

As part of our educational program series, we are pleased to announce the posting of two programs by Dr. Andrew Zalewski, vice president of Gesher Galicia. The new webinars, prepared in collaboration with Jay Osborn, our digital map manager, bring the following topics to your desktop:

Historical Maps of Galicia (I): Borders Explained

Galician borders in flux are illustrated by cartographic masterpieces. Maps in English, German, Italian, Polish, and Russian provide the backdrop to a commentary on historical and political changes, spanning from the 18th through the 20th centuries. This program examines the borders of Galicia during peacetime and wartime, from the tumultuous Napoleonic period through the two world wars, making it easier to follow perplexing territorial shifts.

Historical Maps of Galicia (II): Cities, Towns, and Neighborhoods

Discover how historical maps illustrate the Jewish presence in the main cities of Galicia. Old maps bring into focus separate and shared spaces in the multiethnic urban environment of the 19th century. As you take a virtual stroll through smaller Galician towns, you will find out how cadastral maps can shed light on neighborhoods and communal life. From unfinished sketches to detailed final drawings, cadastral maps are made easier to understand, with additional resources shared at the end of the program.

Hi Corine
Thanks o lot for these informations

I would like to be connect with their family now. They are all died (Paul in 1969, Claude in 1976 and Mary in 1983).
But i dont know if Claude had children.

I find her because a have a photo of their wedding 28/03/1925.

Werner and Eisenhandler families. #poland #ukraine

Mjacobsfr@...
 

i have been trying for some time to find info on the Werner and Eisenhandler families, in particular Siegfried Sacher Werner, born in Ulanov, and Berta Bluma Eisenhandler, born in Nowe Miasto. Berta's parents, Tobias Eisenhandler and Lea Werner had five children. They were divorced in Vienna around 1920 and Lea and all the children reverted to her maiden name of Werner (although I am not sure how official this was). I would be grateful for any help you can provide.


Re: Seek info about 17th century mixed marriages--Rhineland & Switzerland? #germany #france

Corinna Woehrl
 

Hello Shirley and Roger,

I would like to support Roger's opinion:
Having done extensive research yet mostly in Northern Germany, I haven't come across one interreligious marriage before about 1880. There have been conversions to mostly Lutheran or seldom Catholic faith before: - in Breslau/Wroclaw I saw quite a few civil marriages in that time where the names of bride and groom and family members gave hints for a possible conversion.

The tolerance of Mennonites towards Jewish faith may resolve them also being in the focus of prosecution. Where Jews were allowed to settle, the authorities may have been tolerant enough to have other religious minorities staying there, too (example Friedrichstadt in Nordfriesland). But this is just my guess.

I have just checked an interesting German database on the distribution of names in Germany. I entered Wilbers which isn't really common and doesn't at all sound Jewish to me.

https://nvk.genealogy.net/map/1890:wilbers

And here's the link to a database of Jewish families in Krefeld - no Wilbers, also no W. in the Memor-book.

<https://www.krefeld.de/c1257cbd001f275f/files/historische_datenbank_juedische_krefelder_findbuch.pdf/$file/historische_datenbank_juedische_krefelder_findbuch.pdf?openelement>

The only way to solve the question is by doing further research going back step by step, keeping the question in mind.
Good luck and kind regards from Germany

Looking for information about immigration to Cuba in the 1920s and 1930s.

1. What shipping lines traveled from Europe to Cuba during that period?

2. Is there any way to get access to manifests for arrivals in Cuba?

Thank you.     Evan Fishman,    -- New Jersey    <ebf2001@...>


(Russia, Belarus) New World War ll Databases Free and in Russian #belarus #russia

Jan Meisels Allen
 

Vera Miller of Find Lost Russian & Ukrainian Family has informed us about three new online databases honoring the 75th anniversary of World War ll. As all are free and in Russian you may need to use Google translate or Steve Morse’s website for transliterating English to Russian in one step: https://stevemorse.org/russian/eng2rus.html

 

The databases are:

soldier photos of men and women who served in the Soviet Army

 

St. Petersburg Archives has a database of over 67,000 civilian recipients of “Fort Defense of Leningrad” medals. The database is searchable by last name, year of birth or place of employment. There are downloadable scans of award documents for each recipient.

https://medal.spbarchives.ru/

 

"It (the medal) was awarded to active participants in the heroic defense of the city on the Neva - all those who, despite hunger and cold, shelling and bombing, stood by the machine, extinguished incendiary bombs, nursed the wounded, dug trenches, supported the urban economy, taught and cared for children, holding thereby personal victory in the battle for Leningrad," says the website.

 

The Soviet government gave the award to 1.47 million recipients (according to Wikipedia) so the database is a work in progress.

 

Another database is Explosion of Partisan based on documents from the Central Headquarters of the Partisan Movement at the Headquarters of the Supreme High Command.  http://rgaspi.info/k-75-letiyu-pobedy/nagrady-partizan/

Information on more than 8,500 people awarded for their involvement in the war's partisan movement are detailed in the database, which also is a work on progress.

 

This database can be easily searched by surname. Information provided on award recipients can include full name, birth year, place for call of service, place of residence, partisan group name, award presented, presenter of award and file location of record.

 

Requests to obtain scans of records can be sent to rgaspi@.... It is highly recommended to write in Russian.

 

So far, most WWII databases from Russia have focused on soldiers of the Soviet Army.

 

The other database comes from the Republic of Belarus- A Book of Memory  (https://www.mil.by/base/index.php),

an effort by the Office to Perpetuate the Memory of Defenders of the Fatherland and Victims of Wars of the Armed Forces of Belarus.

 

The database provides information on people who died in Belarus during WWII and those who came from Belarus and died elsewhere during WWII. Users can find the following information in the database: full name, year of birth, place of birth, place of call of duty, place of service, position, date of death, cause of death, burial number and place of burial.

 

Those seeking information on their relatives or ancestors from Belarus will need to look page by page or know their full name- first, patronymic (name derived from father's first name such as Ivanovich) and surname.

 

Some people on this database can be found on Memory of the People (https://pamyat-naroda.ru/heroes/?adv_search)

but others are only found on A Book of Memory. (See above)

 

There are ~2 million photos posted to Dear Memory (https://foto.pamyat-naroda.ru/) of men and women who served in the Soviet Army during World War ll. The photos on Dear Memory can also be found on Memory of the People (see above). To read how to search Dear Memory see: https://lostrussianfamily.wordpress.com/2018/06/03/millions-of-records-added-to-wwii-database/

Re: Unable to find names on passenger lists #names

Marlene Etlinger
 

My father remembered sitting around the table with his father filling out my grandfather ‘s naturalization papers. My grandfather was young when he arrived so they were trying to invent the name of the ship he came on. In this case the name of the ship on his naturalization papers was useless.


Last residence of Riga in 1920 before immigrating to US, says the passenger manifest #usa #latvia #lithuania

Corey Brand
 

David and Saul (Zelman) MILLER (many spelling variations of surname) came to the US in 1920, in their twenties. They are my third great uncles. They were from Krekenava, now in Lithuania. Their last place of residence was Riga, Latvia, according to the NYC passenger manifest. I want to find out why they were in Riga. Was their relocation because of World War I? Is it possible they were Russian soldiers? Any databases I can use to find out? Or, does anyone know another reason they could be in Riga for?
 
Thanks, Corey Brand, South Florida, USA   <coreyabrand@...>

Re: Looking for Information on Harry FEINGOLD and Bessie WEISS, from Poland to Phoenixville, PA and NYC 1890s #poland #usa

Kenneth Ryesky
 

Some years ago, the Philadelphia Jewish Archives Center http://www.philajewisharchives.org/ moved its materials to the Temple University Paley Library Urban Archives.

I have been out of Philadelphia for 30-something years, and my last visit to Temple University campus was shortly before my Aliyah about 6 years ago.  The Urban Archives staff had always been very helpful and facilitative during my personal visits over the years (but that was in a different era before this COVID-19 madness).  

You might wish to make inquiry there.

As for Phoenixville, the last I heard they still have a synagogue there, perhaps that might be a tree for you to bark up.

Best of luck in your searches,

Re: Seek info about 17th century mixed marriages--Rhineland & Switzerland? #germany #france

Roger Lustig
 

There was no such thing as a "mixed marriage" involving one Jewish and
one Gentile party in the 17thC. In fact, that was generally true in
Germany, Switzerland, etc. until at least the middle of the 19thC.
Conversion of one party would have to precede the marriage, and
conversion to Judaism was not an option in most places.

As to LEHMANN coming from Lac Leman (Genfer See/Lake Geneva), it's
unlikely, especially as nobody would have caught the reference. LEHMANN
is about as common a surname as the German-speaking world has, with
literally 10s of thousands of entries in the White Pages.
(dastelefonbuch.de) It means, literally, "liege man," i.e., a vassal.
Quite a few LEHMANNs in Germany were Jewish, but they made up at most 5%
of the total. And before around 1800, Jews generally didn't use surnames
at all, and those who did are not known to have used LEHMANN.

Nor is WILBERS known to have been used by any Jewish family in Germany.
(Source: Lars Menk, _A Dictionary of German-Jewish Surnames._) Again, if
the surname existed in the 17thC, and wasn't one of a small number of
surnames used by Jews in big cities, it's not a Jewish surname.

Re: Unable to find names on passenger lists #names

Joel Hayflick
 

Hi Joel,

My SPITKOVSKY ancestors came through Castle Garden arriving on July 6, 1882 aboard steam ship “Australia”. There is a gap in the arrivals manifest, identified by passenger numbers jumping from one page to the next, on the digitized microfilm for this ship arrival in NY and that gap led me to ask the park service to investigate further. As bad luck would have it, my ancestors were on the pages in this gap. The park service wrote back in response to my inquiry about the nature of this gap in the record and indicated that the page was either missing or in such bad shape as to be unreadable hence was not photographed.

After 15 years searching in vain on microfilm records for arrivals into the US, I uncovered a newspaper article that mentioned the year in which my ancestor arrived. As a next step, I went to the Hamburg lists which proved to be instrumental to breaking through this brick wall. After finding them on the departures list, which has much less information than on the arrivals lists, that pointed me to the ship name and departure date. Using Stephen Morse’s One Step search tool I found the arrival date and city for the vessel.

There is a DaCosta family in Charleston SC dating back to the mid 18th Century immigrated from London UK. There is a Solomon DaCosta. Not sure of Leah, but you might try researching the family name in Charleston South Carolina USA. Hope this is helpful.
