Elizabeth as hebrew name #germany

Eva Lawrence
 

As I understand it, Elizabeth is a compound of the Hebrew
word word Beth, a house and the adjective Eliza, meaning
pleasant.

JGS of Montreal's next program: Monday, May 12, 2014 - Dr. Simon Kreindler #ukraine

merlek@...
 

The Jewish Genealogical Society of Montreal,
in association with the Jewish Public Library, is proud to present:

Dr. Simon Kreindler
">from Galicia to Barbados, Guatemala, Montreal and Toronto - a genealogist's
journey":

Simon Kreindler grew up in Barbados, studied medicine in Montreal and since
1971,has practiced psychiatry in Toronto. He has been researching his
family's Galician roots for many years and has been able to trace his
paternal and maternal lines back to thelate 1700s. In 1995, his
serendipitous discovery of a first cousin in Winnipeg, previously thought
to have been lost along with his entire family in the Shoah, infused his
search with new energy. After visiting Czernowitz and his family's shtetls of
Okna, Zablotov, Ilince and Solotwina (in present-day Ukraine) he embarked on
writing a memoir for his children and grandchildren.

The meeting will be held on Monday, May 12, 2014 at 7:30 pm
Gelber Conference Centre

I used Western Union, online >from Florida, to transfer funds to the
Polish archives, and that worked fine to obtain records that are more
than 100 years old. One thing to be aware of, if you use a credit
card for Western Union, the credit card company will probably charge
a cash-withdrawal fee and a foreign transaction fee. Examine your
credit card contract to see what the fees are. Also, if you are
communicating with a civil registry office (Urzad Stanu Cywilnego or
USC) for records that are less than 100 years old, a Western Union
international transfer may be more tricky. I tried this once, and
it did not work. Fortunately, a kind man in Poland helped me to
make the payment, and then I did receive the less-than-100-years-old
marriage record I requested >from the USC.

A few weeks ago, I asked for advice here about paying for records >from
the
Lodz Archives. Several people replied to me with some good advice for
which
I send my thanks, if I missed thanking you any of you personally. A few
people with similar questions asked if I would let the group know what
worked out. So, since I have now successfully received the records I
requested, I will do that now with a bit of additional information which
may be helpful:

Email the archives listing your requests including all pertinent
information
from the indexes. You can write your request, put it into Google
Translate
or another translator to translate it to Polish. I fine tuned it a bit
by
translating it back to English to see how it came out and tweaked it a
bit
but they will get the gist of what you want.
They responded to me within about a week with the cost - very low, about
$2.00 US per record and the banking information for wiring the fees.
Unfortunately, the reply was a jpeg format, so not possible to copy and
paste the text into the translator so if you want don't read Polish, you
will have to copy it out.

Now to the payment:
Wire transfers is definitely their preferred method of payment. One
person
reported that they mailed cash which did not arrive. Banks have
different
fees for international transfers, so I would recommend shopping around.
Alternatively, Western Union seems to only charge
$5.00 if there is no rush on the transfer and you can do the whole thing
online. Wire transfers are free (or perhaps low cost in some
areas) in the EU (or perhaps all Europe - not sure) so the best, if you
don't already live there, is if you know someone who does. In my case,
my
son who lives in Europe, transferred the fee. I let the archives know it
was
on the way and a couple weeks later, I received the scanned docs via
email.
They requested a confirmation that they were received.

Presumably, this would work with any of the Polish State Archives
however, I
am still waiting for a reply >from the Kielce Archives to my request sent
at
the same time, so I guess some are more efficient than others.

I hope this is useful.

Searching for grave - Rabbi Jacob Joseph Langer #poland

Paula Blank
 

I am searching for the grave of my gggrandfather, Rabbi Jacob Joseph
Langer. He was born in 1843 in Nowy Sacz, Austria (now Poland) and
emigrated to the US in 1888. He was the gabai (and possibly the rabbi)
of the Dukla Magen Abraham shul on Attorney Street in the lower east
side. He died on Feb. 23, 1926. I found the death record, but can not
find where he is buried. I've check the databases on Jewishgen,
jewishdata.org and all of the cemeteries on kehillalinks. His son,
Richard, was buried in Palestine - but there is a record of his death
in Palestine and of his wife's body being sent there to be buried. Any
ideas?

Re: JRI-Poland Adds Galician Data and Links Data to Images #general

Mark Halpern
 

For researchers with interest in eastern Galicia - those towns now in
Ukraine - this message is for you. JRI-Poland continues indexing the
records at the AGAD and Przemysl Archives. I am again proud to announce
the availability of over 35,000 additional indices online as follows:

AGAD Archive Indexing:
- Bolechow 1901-07B, 1896-1906M, 1905-11D
- Boryslaw 1906-12B, 1906, 08-12M, 1906-12D
- Brzezany 1905-09D
- Budzanow 1898-1908B
- Drohobycz 1906-12B, 1907-12M, 1906-12D
- Gliniany 1904-07B, 1877, 99, 1902, 07, 09-11M
- Gologory 1894-1910, 12D
- Jagielnica 1902-08B
- Kolomyja 1906, 08-10M
- Kamionka Strumilowa 1899-1909M
- Komarno 1909-10B
- Mielnica 1896-1903D
- Mikulince 1904-10B, 1903-10M, 1905-08D
- Nadworna 1908-12B
- Obertyn 1890-1907M
- Podhajce 1906-10D
- Przemyslany 1902-09B, 1877-78, 80-81, 83-88, 90-1909M (New AGAD town)
- Rozdol 1901-06B
- Sambor 1904-10D
- Skala 1903-09B
- Sokal 1906-09, 11-12M
- Sokolowka 1910-11B
- Stanislawow 1897-1912M
- Zalozce 1877-1911M
- Zborow 1907-11M

Przemysl Archive Indexing
- Dobromil 1864-65, 81, 84-85, 87, 89, 92-95, 97-1914B (Index Only)
- Mikulince 1857B, 1885-86D (Index Only)
- Mosty Wielkie 1911-13B (Index Only)
- Stryj 1858-71B

A few notes concerning these added indices:

1. Many of these towns have additional records that are available for
indexing or have been indexed and cannot be placed online. These towns
are Brzezany, Kamionka Strumilowa, Kolomyja, Komarno, Mielnica, Obertyn,
Podhajce, Sambor, Sokal, Stanislawow, and Zborow. To find out more about
any of these town's status, please contact me at mark@....

2. Indexes identified as "Index Only" means that the source document was
an Index Register created afterwards >from the original records. In many
cases, the underlying records have not survived.

3. The Dobromil birth index for years 1864 through 1914 are >from records
re-created by local authorities after World War I. Dobromil Jewish vital
records were destroyed by the fighting during the War.

As I have mentioned before, JRI-Poland is partnering with the AGAD Archive
to link our index entries to AGAD's images of Jewish vital records. Many of
the AGAD records - mainly records up through 1905 -- now have online images.
In most cases the links to the AGAD images are approximate and should be
within a few pages of the correct image. The researcher will need to move
forwards and backwards based on the year and AKT number you want to view.
In these cases, the link on the left hand side of the index entry will read
"View Nearby Image."

JRI-Poland is working feverously to link our index entries to the Exact page
of images. These Exact links are now available for records for Bialy Kamien,
Bolechow, Bolszowce, Brzezany, Buczacz, Budzanow, Bukaczowce, Drohobycz,
Tarnopol, and Zbaraz. Again, the links are only available, in most towns,
for records up through about 1905. For these towns, the link on the left
hand side of the index entry will read "View Image."

Our thanks to Howard Fink for managing this linking project and to
volunteers Smadar Belkind Gerson, Uri Ladell, Seth Morgulas, Meryl Rizzotti,
Yair Sageev, Madeleine Sann, Rick Spears, and Jill Ullmann.

More thanks go to Hadassah Lipsius and Stanley Diamond for their efforts and
especially to Michael Tobias for processing all the Excel data into our
searchable database.

And lastly, a Great Big "Thank You" to all of the AGAD town project
contributors who made the addition of this data possible and the Town
Leaders who manage the fundraising process.

We plan to index all the Jewish vital records at the AGAD and Przemysl
Archives. We can only accomplish this indexing with the kind contributions
of dedicated researchers who support these indexing projects. Please make
contributions to your town projects. These contributions will enable us to
index these records and place them online for everyone to use. Instructions
for contributing can be found at http://www.jri-poland.org/support.htm
Please make sure to identify your contribution to "AGAD - (your town name)
project."

Thank you very much for your support and happy hunting.

I am searching for the grave of my gggrandfather, Rabbi Jacob Joseph Langer. He
was born in 1843 in Nowy Sacz, Austria (now Poland) and emigrated to the US in
1888. He was the gabai (and possibly the rabbi) of the Dukla Magen Abraham shul on
Attorney Street in the lower east side. He died on Feb. 23, 1926. I found the
death record, but can not find where he is buried. I've check the databases on
Jewishgen, jewishdata.org and all of the cemeteries on kehillalinks. His son,
Richard, was buried in Palestine - but there is a record of his death in Palestine
and of his wife's body being sent there to be buried. Any ideas?
