Maps of Jewish Communities and their Populations in Europe: 1750 - 1950 #general

Ami Elyasaf <director@...>
 

The International Institute for Jewish Genealogy has made available
online Maps of Jewish Communities and their Populations in Europe:
1750 - 1950.

These maps -- available for the first time on the Internet -- have been
created by Sandra Crystall based on the research of Laurence
Leitenberg (La population juive des villes d'Europe. Croissance et
repartition, 1750 - 1930, Peter Lang, Bern 2008), augmented by
Leitenberg's further research to add post-Holocaust (circa 1950)
population data.

Four maps of Jewish populations in Europe are presented. With the four
maps, population data for a total of 827 communities (ranging >from 184
to 770 on a single map) are depicted in one or more time frames of
1750, 1800, 1850, 1900, 1930 and 1950.

Two maps ("1800 and 1850" and "1900 and 1930") each display two sets
of graduated circles representing the Jewish populations of localities
in two time frames, and two maps (1750 and 1950) each display
graduated circles to represent the populations in a single time frame.
Each map displays the country boundaries for one time frame
contemporaneous with the population data.

A user guide is available to guide those viewing the maps and
searching for information (such as alternate names of communities).
For more detailed information about the communities selected, changes
in the Jewish population during the two-century timeframe and the
creation of the maps, a detailed technical report -- with information
on the main substantive trends depicted in each map -- is available on
the website.

The maps, user guide and report are available at
http://iijg.org/maps-of-jewish-communities/.

The maps and research were supported by the Institute in partial
fulfillment of its major goals -- the development of tools and
cutting-edge technologies for the work of Jewish family historians and
of social scientists in general.

Taub Family in Citcau, Romania (formerly Kaczko, Hungary) #romania

jschonholz@...
 

Hello Fellow SIGers,

I need help in finding my grandmother's family >from Kaczko, Hungary
(now Citcau, Romania). I know that her grandfather's name was David
TAUB. Her mother was Mary Taub (married to Saum (?) MATYAS who
immigrated to US in 1912 with his 2 brothers-in-law, Isaac JACOBS and
Saum TAUB). My grandmother, her mother, 2 sisters, aunt and 2 male
cousins immigrated in 1920. All of the above people named David TAUB
as the relative in the old country on the Ellis Island manifests. I
have found that David TAUB must have immigrated before 1930 because he
shows up on the 1940 census at his daughter Mary's home. That census
lists him as having immigrated in 1925. I have found a manifest which
lists a David TAUB and wife Zali coming to the US in 1925 and going to
a son Marton TAUB in Brooklyn. I can not find Zali (or maybe it's
Sally here) on any census. I did find a cemetery in Queens, NY with
the graves of David and Sally TAUB. I also found a 1930 census that
lists a David TAUB, wife Sarah, and son Emanual.

What would help me solve the mystery if David and Sally(Zali) are my
great great grandparents are documents >from either Hungary or Romania
showing births of Mary, sister Lenka, son Marton, possible sons
Emanual and Saum that would list their parents names. I hope that
someone can lead me to the place where I can find these records. I
have searched the LDS and JewishGen websites but cannot find any
documents.

Thank you.

Grants available to support digital infrastructures and services for humanities research (US and Germany) #germany

Dennis Aron <dennisaron@...>
 

My son-in-law is a grant-writer for a junior college and found a grant
opportunity that he thought might fit with German genealogy research.
I think he's right. Clearly the research done by members of this forum
and the extensive resources of jewishgen.org could play a role here.
I am hopeful some of you may have some ideas and are associated with
or know of organizations who could take advantage of such support.

Information on this grant is available at: http://tinyurl.com/pp9jlu9
http://www.neh.gov/grants/odh/nehdfg-bilateral-digital-humanities-program#.U87KZmDPmCs.email

Brief summary >from the website:

The National Endowment for the Humanities (NEH) in the United States
and the German Research Foundation (Deutsche Forschungsgemeinschaft
e.V., DFG) are working together to offer support for projects that
contribute to developing and implementing digital infrastructures
and services for humanities research.

Collaboration between U.S. and German partners is a key requirement
for this grant category. The partners will collaborate to write a
single application package. The U.S. partner will submit the package
to NEH via Grants.gov, and the German partner will submit it to DFG
via regular postal service and preferably also by e-mail.

New York City Name Of Street #general

Lois Levick
 

Thanks to all the Genners who responded to my ViewMate post.
The consensus of opinion was that it was E. 91st Street in the Yorkville
section. That seems to match the other records I have of my grandfather
living in that area, where a lot of Hungarians were.
