Village of Kalush #galicia


Leslie Gyi <lgyi@...>
 

Below is my reply to Lee, which seems to have reached Lee but been bounced
by the SIG Server. I have visited the archives (Uzhgorod, Beregovo and
Rahkiv) in Ukraine on three occassions with guide, and successfully
extracted 100+ records. It is not the most straight-forward process. They
have also showed me the stacks of paper they have >from Americans requesting
information, most of it is in English, and has insufficient information even
for information retrieval >from US institutions, so they sit in stacks and
not much happens. I found it challenging enough to do this work in person
with an experienced guide/researcher. I wouldn't hold much hope of mail.
Would love to hear about other people's experiences, like how many records
were retrieved, how long it took and which archive they dealt with.

Response to Lee
---------------
I am not personally familiar with Ivano-Frankivsk, having no ancestors >from
there, hence only driving through and snapping a few photos on a drive >from
Bucovina to trans-carpathia, but my Ukrainian researcher would probably
know. He is fee-for-service, but has yielded me extraordinary results on my
research in trans-carpathia, and I do know that he spends a fair amount of
time in the Ivano-Frankivsk archive due to client demand, and has a good
relationship with the director there. If you are interested, send me email
privately.

Hi

Information gathered by Miriam Weiner in her books has been correlated
with the Polish State Archives. If there is no information in Poland
AGAD or USC Srodmiescie availble, it is evident that vital records for
Kalusz did not survive HaShoa.

PS. Just for the records.
Kalusz (Kalush) was a town, not a village, with a general population
numbering around 10,000 souls.

Hi Lee
What kind of records are you looking for?
My family was >from Wojnilow, close by to Kalush (a fair-sized town, not a
village). I would like to research land records >from early 1900s - can you
tell me the source for that?

Here are some references for you from
http://lemko.org/genealogy/addresses.html

See also http://lemko.org/genealogy/oblasts.html

"When writing to Archives in Ukraine, include two IRC (International Reply
Coupon) available >from your local post office. If their reply is negative,
they can send you a reply using your return postage.

If they have found some information for you, they will bill you for their
fees and disbursements. These Archives are in the same situation as the rest
of the country. There are times that they cannot afford to pay for some
things that they need to operate as a business. Not all have working
photocopy machines or other supplies.

The following addresses are transliterated into Roman letters. They would
have to be placed on an envelope in this way plus in Cyrillic, and your
letter should be written in Cyrillic."

Hi Lee...

My family (OPPENHEIM, KNIPPEL) emigrated >from Kaluusz/Kalush to the US
between 1893-1901 approx.

Check page 24 of "Finding Your Jewish Roots in Galicia: A Reference Guide",
by Suzan F. Wynne. Genealogist, "Alexander Dunai has located a register of
births >from Kalusz for 1830-1850".

I have used his services and reached him at [email omitted].

By the way, which surnames are you researching? Who knows, maybe they show up
on the copies of the few pages he sent me which had my surnames on them.

Kalush (also spelled Kalusz, but not to be confused with a similiar-sounding
name in Poland) is a town that I'm interested in, too. I have a copy of
the Yizkor book (or most of it, anyway) Xeroxed >from the copy that's at
the New York City Public Library. I'm in the process of transcribing the
Yiddish necrology list to be put online. Don't know about other kinds of
records, though- hopefully some exist!
