Dabrowa Tarnowska Records #general

Rusty Wilson
 

I saw in a recent post that Moishe Miller is researching the KORN
family >from Dabrowa Tarnowska. My NAGOSHINER and GOLDSTEIN families
lived in Dabrowa Tarnowska. We visited there in 2003 and while there,
we took photos of birth records in several local archives. The
records are in books, with several records to a page. As a result, the
photos contain multiple individuals. I just looked and the first
photo contains a record for Hirz CELNIK, son of Alter CELNIK and
Sxeindel (?) KORN.

There are 37 photos, each containing multiple individuals (as well as
some photos of the synagogue, cemetery, etc.). The records date from
about the 1880's, and are in Polish, but with Google translate, you
should be able to puzzle out most of the key information.

I thought it might be helpful to post the link to the album for others
researching families >from that area. Following is a link to the
photos. If you have any problem accessing them or have questions about
the formats, please feel free to contact me directly.

Roziver = Rozhev ?? #ukraine

sbloom@...
 

I sent a private reply to Fred, but I thought others might like to
know that I think this is likely to be Rozhev, a small town near
Sitniaki, and roughly speaking, between Kiev and Zhitomir, and also
near the town of Radomszyl.

In Yiddish, a person >from Rozhev would be called a "rozhever", so I
think this might have led to confusion with the town name (a mistake
that I have seen a few times before).

I am helping my wife locate her grandmother's town near Kiev. Her
mother has the town name as Roziver. They're not sure if it's
spelled that way, (it could be Rozhiver). I looked at google earth
and found approximate names but no close matches. Anyone know if
there is such a town name in that area?

SCHECHTER - Kupichev #ukraine

Bennie Penzik <benzipen@...>
 

I am looking to connect with my maternal great-great grandmother's
family. The family name is SCHECHTER. Other related branches of this
family were >from Kupichev, so I am assuming that any towns not too
distant >from Kupichev/Kovel might be a possible match. I have photos
of a Jacob Schechter, circa 1917; Eva Schechter, circa 1917; Esther
Schechter, circa 1917, and Dora Schehter, Eva's sister. I also have
another unidentified photo of a Shechter male that was taken in
Brooklyn, NY. If your tree has any of these names, I would be very
interested in hearing >from you.

Re: Distance between Kamenets Litovsk and Zhabinka #general

tom
 

The jewishgen communities database,
<http://www.jewishgen.org/communities/search.asp>, will calculate
the distance for you.

If you're looking for the distance >from a major city, you can select
it in the 3rd panel ("show the distance and direction from"), and
then all the hits will be shown with their distance >from that city.
(if you don't specify a city, it defaults to the capital of each
country.)

But if you want the distance >from a smaller town that's not listed,
all you have to do is look it up, note its latitude and longitude
(e.g. kamenets-litovsk is 52° 24 n, 23° 49 e), and enter that directly
in the "show distance" panel when looking for the second one.

tom klein, toronto

ps. It calculated zhabinka to kamenets-litovsk as 16 miles.

Well, JewishGen can help heal your frustrations, Joan....our community
pages query answers these questions easily.

I went to the community pages query at
http://www.jewishgen.org/communities/search.asp
and put in kamyanyets
and got this town: Kamyanyets, Belarus,52°24' N 23°49' E

Then i returned to the query, put in zhabinka and asked for the
distance >from 5224/2349 and got this:

Zhabinka, Belarus
52°12' N 24°01' E
16 mi SSE of 52°24' N 23°49' E

Many thanks to all those who responded.

The consensus of opinion is that the car is a mid-1920's

Cluj Jewish High School Records #romania

Beth Long
 

While going through some old notes, I found a list I had made of all the surnames
found in the 1945/46 Jewish high school records of Cluj. There are 66 surnames
on the list. If you want a copy, please e-mail me privately.

The actual records (some of which include a photograph of the student)could be
photographed at the Cluj Archive if enough people are interested.

How did you save and post your image to Viewmate as a picture ?

Digital Records from Badatelna: Making high quality JPG images #austria-czech

Peter.Lowe@...
 

On 25th July, Niko Hofinger posted a very helpful note on how to obtain
high resolution files on your computer of the WHOLE digital image >from
the Familiantenbuch and Birth/Marriage/Death Registers on the
www.badatelna.eu site. I am very grateful to Niko for this insight into
Zoomify images and how to manipulate them

I only partially succeeded in following Niko's instructions, and in
doing so realized that different Web browsers behave differently, and
that there are potentially easier ways based on his approach.

As an example of a problem that I found, when I used Niko's example url
(http://toolserver.org/~kolossos/image/zoomify.php?path=http://web.nacr.cz/pomucky/zoomify/NAD0029/148/29_148_018)
in Google Chrome browser it indeed produced a complete image. However,
I could not see any simple way of saving the whole image.
Right-clicking, and selecting Save as... caused just one tile to be saved.

Niko also suggested that one needs to go to the Source Code, which takes
a bit of effort, and again can be difficult on Google Chrome.

I found this work around, which does not need to access the Source Code.
My instructions are more complex than it actually is!

In brief, the three steps are:
1, Copy url of Badatelna page containing image
2. Paste url into a box on a dezoomify webpage
3. Download full image

In detail, this is what I do:

1. Identify which image you want to download and copy the url, e.g.:
http://www.badatelna.eu/reprodukce/?fondId=2098&zaznamId=1143622&reproId=3892657

2. Paste that url into the box in this webpage using Mozilla Firefox:
http://ophir.lojkine.free.fr/dezoomify/dezoomify.html
Click on submit query.
The full image appears.

3. Right click and save as a full resolution image file. Not that it is
a very large PNG format file.
Routinely, I use Google Chrome for all webpages. However, in my hands
using Win 8.1, it gave an error when trying to save these very large
files. However, the process works smoothly in Mozilla Firefox. Though
after right-clicking one has to wait a long time before it allows the
download. On my version of Internet Explorer, I could not find an option
to save the image - but that might reflect my ignorance!

3a. OPTIONAL: The PNG format files are very large, and so I convert to
JPG format, ensuring that high quality is chosen for the conversion. I
use Irfanview (http://www.irfanview.com), as it is Freeware,
straightforward yet sophisticated, and allows batches to be converted. I
usually select the option to retain original date & time stamp, and a
quality of at least 80. The resultant JPG file for a Familiant page is
about 4MB, as compared to 40MB for the PNG image. Before saving, I use
Irfanview's simple "crop" facility if I do not need to retain the whole
page.

Hope this is of help, and would be happy to try to answer any queries.
