JRI-Poland Adds Galician Data and Links Data to Images #galicia

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.

Thank you very much for your support and happy hunting.

Unterlahnkreis: Volunteer needed #germany

Lande
 

As was the case throughout Germany in November 1938, the Gestapo in
Unterlahnkreis (Isselbach, Holzappel, Flacht, Bad Ems, Seelbach, and
Cramberg) rounded up Jewish males and sent them to concentration camps.

In the course of collecting information for the German town project,
I have come across handwritten Gestapo forms listing about 30 Jewish
men who were arrested and sent to a camp. I would appreciate hearing
from a volunteer, comfortable with handwritten German material,
who would be prepared to put these names into an Excel database--
perhaps someone who had a personal interest in the Unterlahnkreis area.

Horb am Main, Bayern, nearby Altenkunstadt and Burgkunstadt - KOHN / COHEN #germany

NED LEWISON
 

Hello,
I'm looking for KOHN and BETTMANN families >from Horb am Main which is
very near Altenkunstadt and Burgkunstadt, about 25 miles NE of Bamberg.

Eliezer (Leser) Kohn's wife Peyer nee Bettmann. Probably they were born
1780s. I estimate this date because known children were:
Bernhard KOHN 1807, died Hamburg.
Moses COHEN 1809, died Baltimore 1882
Simon COHEN 1815, died Baltimore 1908
Betty COHEN OTTENHEIMER 1833, died Baltimore.

There's a book detailing the Burgkunstadt cemetery.
Are there any other sources for BMD data >from Horb am Main
or Altenkunstadt or Burgkunstadt?

People or email addresses I should try to contact?

Also, is "Peyer" a normal female first name?

Ned Lewison, Baltimore, Maryland neddana@...

The town appears to be "Dukla" in Galicia.

Dukla is the only Galician town that starts with "Duk" and there is no
other town starting with "Dak" so this is probably it unless all the
other letters are off. The Cyrillic spelling seems to be "Duklya."
