GONSKI family search #general

David Lewin
 

I am attempting to reconstruct the GONSKI family tree of families who
lived in Konstantynow, Poland.

To my knowledge there were *two* Konstantynow, the one near Lodz and
the other in Biala Podolsk, Lublin Voivodeship near Belarus.

I've posted a 1908 newspaper cutting in Yiddish (of an article
published in "Heint" on 24 December) describing attacks on Jews in
Warsaw at Christmas time.

Highlighted in Yellow on the image is the name of a firm of flower
dealers "Gonski & Klimaszewski"

The image is on ViewMate
at http://www.jewishgen.org/viewmate/viewmateview.asp?key=VM75367

Can I learn today anything about this firm and its owners -
specifically the GONSKI side? (I am aware that it may have been GUNSKI)

Thank you for your knowledge and guidance

Have a healthy 5780

New regulations in Poland on release of civil registration records #ukraine

Gesher Galicia SIG
 

Gesher Galicia recently learnt that the Polish Ministry of the
Interior had earlier this year introduced an amendment to the law of
2015 that applies to Civil Registration Offices. The amendment is
referred to as:
"Art. 128. - Transfer of civil registration books to archives - Law on
civil registration records",
and forms part of a law of February 21, 2019.

The first paragraph sums up the existing law, with a 100-year rule for
making birth records held in civil registration offices publicly
accessible, and an 80-year restriction on marriage and death records.
The text then creates a new obligation on the staff in civil
registration offices (USC) to find proof of death for people listed in
birth books and marriage books, before such books are made accessible
- even if a book is more than 100 (or 80) years old. If this
obligation was carried out meticulously to the letter, it would be
virtually impossible to clear any birth or marriage book issued in the
past century for public release.

The next paragraph of the text appears to make things somewhat easier,
by allowing the transfer of a book in some circumstances, even if the
death certificate cannot be found.
" ...If it is determined that the death certificate has not been drawn
up for the person and no information on death has been registered and
that the person has not been issued a PESEL number, the head of the
registry office is entitled to forward the books to the appropriate
state archives, after the periods referred to in paragraph I [that is,
of 100 years or 80 years]."

A PESEL number is a sort of social security number, which a person
would keep throughout their lifetime, and which is used to record
events including births, deaths and marriages. The PESEL system was
introduced in the 1970s.

It remains to be seen how strictly staff in civil registration offices
search for death records (records that would otherwise be due for
release) of people named in birth and marriage records. Even at best,
there are likely to be considerable delays in making these books
available.

A transfer >from USC Warsaw to AGAD of around 30 Jewish vital record
books (>from the former eastern Galicia) was expected in February of
this year, but was delayed at the time for reasons apparently
unrelated to any new regulations. After further delays, it was
expected to arrive in September, but has still not appeared. It is
unclear whether at least the death registers in this consignment (with
death records up to 1938) will be transferred this year. Death
records, of course, are not included in the new regulation.

Announcement of Dej/Des records #romania

Vivian Kahn
 

I am pleased to announce that the Hungarian research group is going to acquire
and transcribe 19 books of civil records >from Dej in Cluj county Romania,
formerly Des, Szolnok Doboka, Hungary. The birth, marriage, and death records
cover the time period >from October 1895, when Hungary began civil registration,
to 1916-1917 as follows:

Births: 1895-1916
Marriages: 1895-1917
Deaths: 1895-1916

Des was the main city in Szolnok-Doboka megye. Jews were prohibited >from
living in the city until 1834. After the ban was lifted, the Jewish population
increased >from about three in 1838 to 122 in 1857. Immigrants >from Galicia
comprised the majority of the Jewish community. By 1877, there were 560 Jewish
residents. Menachem Mendel Paneth, son of Yehezkel Paneth, the chief rabbi of
Transylvania, became the first rabbi in 1862. The first synagogue was founded
in 1864, and a new one was built in 1909 when the old synagogue was given to
the town’s 250 Hasidic families.

For more information see the article by Gyémánt, Ladislau >from the YIVO
Encyclopedia of Jews in Eastern Europe at
<https://yivoencyclopedia.org/article.aspx/Dej>; and >from The Museum of the
Jewish People at Beit Hatfutsot at <https://dbs.bh.org.il/place/dej.

We are now seeking donations for this new project. All donors who contribute
$50 or more will be able to access the newly translated spreadsheets as soon as
they have been proofed and before they are uploaded to the Jewishgen website.
Donations are tax deductible and can be made to the Hungarian SIG Transylvania
Records project at:

After you make a donation, please send your electronic receipt to Dena Whitman,

Marosludas/Ludus records #romania

I Weber <ew4147@...>
 

Hi!
does anyone know about a Jewish book for Marosludas/Ludus?
The number of the Jews in Marosludas, starting the second part of the
XIX century, was:

1869: 82 -1880: 218 -1890: 317 -1900: 609 -1910: 715 -1930: 567

So it was an important community,

Checking the Torda Jewish death books I found only for 1886 and 1887
a significant number of deaths >from Marosludas:

1878: 1 -1886: 8 -1887: 9 -1888: 2 -1889: 2

For the rest of the years, starting >from 1878 up to 1904, no death
records >from Marosludas,
So, I suppose that the Jewish community >from Marosludas had his one
birth, marriage and death registers.
Unfortunately, they are not available in the Archives of Cluj, nor in
the archives of Targu Mures.

if anyone has any idea on this I will be glad to hear,

Shana Tovah!
