TZEMERINSKY- Novarodok 19th cent. #rabbinic

Yonatan Ben-Ari
 

I was recently informed that the Rav David ben Moshe (of Kletzk) who
was the Rav of Novarodok had the family name of TZEMERINSKY. Does
anyone have this name in their tree or is anyone a descendant of the
above.

In the past I have been in touch with an OGULNICK/GOLNIK family who
were descendants of the above Rav David.

Thank you

Yoni Ben-Ari, Jerusalem

Copenhagen Jewish vital records online, 1762-1915 #scandinavia

Logan J. Kleinwaks
 

Scans of many Jewish vital records >from Copenhagen are viewable on the
(updated) Danish National Archives website at
https://www.sa.dk/ao-soegesider/billedviser?epid=17117291 . According
to the National Archives' descriptions, the following records are
included: births 1762-1915, marriages 1810-1915, deaths 1810-1915,
"confirmations" 1817-1914. When you follow the above link, the first
group of scans opens by default, but you can view the others by
clicking the minus sign below the Rigsarkivet logo near the top left
to close the first group's listing, then clicking the plus sign for
the group of scans that interests you. In the list of groups of
scans, F = birth, V=marriage, D=death, K=confirmation. There is no
name index accompanying the scans, as far as I know.

There is significant overlap with the FHL microfilms listed at
https://familysearch.org/search/catalog/63696, but many records on the
National Archives website do not appear to be on the microfilms (e.g.,
births 1872-1915).

The Danish National Archives website was recently redesigned to
display scans in a more accessible way. You no longer need to
download any special software.

Perhaps someone more familiar with Danish Jewish genealogy can explore
the holdings in more detail and provide links to other types of
relevant sources (e.g., probate records). The starting point for
digitized records is: https://www.sa.dk/brug-arkivet/arkivalieronline .

Seeking information regarding relatives/siblings of Sime Bruche HELFER #galicia

Joyce Eastman
 

I am trying to identify any relatives of my paternal grandmother, Sime
Bruche HELFER (also known as Berta HELFER-ZINKER or Berta WILDER),
who was living with her family in Vienna, Austria >from 1914 until
1942 when she was deported and killed by the Nazis. My grandmother
was born in October 1880 in Brody, Poland. She was married to
Salomon Wolf WILDER (a master tailor) also >from Brody, Poland, who
died in the early 1930's >from tuberculosis and is buried with two of
their daughters in the Zentralfriedhof Cemetery. Her parents were
Judith HELFER and Aron ZINKOWER also >from Brody, Poland. Since
records do not exist at the Central Archives in Lviv of my
grandmother's birth, or that of her siblings, I am hoping to find
someone who might have a connection to the HELFER side of my
family in order to find living relatives. I have tried contacting other
local archives, also without any success.

I have a family photo that was taken in Vienna, Austria in the early
1930's just prior to my grandfather's death >from tuberculosis, as well
as a picture of my grandmother in her garden in Vienna, Austria prior
to her deportation/execution by the Nazis in 1942. The family photo
was previously posted on ViewMate more than once, without any
success. If you would like copies of these photos please let me know.
I am particularly interested in identifying two women in the family
photo, who I believe most likely are related to my grandmother.

Re: Romanian Archives #romania

Rosanne Leeson
 

Karen and Rom-SIGgers,

Indeed conditions have greatly improved for access, etc. to the Romanian
Archives. However, as in the case of Braila, Rom-SIG needs to find an
honest, professional , reliable researcher to go the Archives to
photograph the records there with a good digital camera. So far we
have not found anyone fitting that description in Braila! In addition,
we try to find someone who lives in the community, so as not to add to
the cost of a project by needing money for transportation >from a more
distant place, plus the costs of room and board, etc. which greatly adds
to the expense of such a project. We would also need to sent up a
special Fund to raise sufficient money.

Even assuming that we do find a proper person, they must go first to the
archive to research the approximate number of records (bmd) involved so
that we can get an idea of possible costs, before we even proceed
further. Due to problems with the Romanian economy many archives are
not open every day, or have shortened hours, and also can restrict the
number of registers available to a researcher each day. Assuming that
records are obtained we then need to find volunteers to do the data
entry and copyreading, before the records can even be sent on to
JewishGen for uploading.

So, as you see this not a quick and easy matter. Unlike other countries
whose records have been microfilmed by the LDS, there are none for
Romania, which so far has forbidden such an activity.

We all wish there could be a simpler, quicker way, but alas, that is the
system.
We already have hundreds of records >from other places still waiting for
volunteers to come forward to help!
