Nowe Miasto to Ulanow to Vienna #austria-czech


Mjacobsfr@...
 

I am researching a family that lived in Nowe Miasto from about 1890 to about 1900, then they moved to Ulanow for about five years before settling in Vienna for a further thirty years. As there are several places called Nowe Miasto and I think two places called Ulanow, is there any way to find out where they all are and how to obtain official records in each place? Is there one Nowe Miasto and Ulanow that would be more likely than the others?

Did this family have children in Vienna? If so, what was the family name?

If you are a member of Jewishgen.org, they have a town finder. I know that Nowe Miasto is in their system.  Don't know about Ulanow.
I think you might be able to search if you're not a member also.  Either way they're a great resource.

Yes. The family name was Werner. Lea Werner married Tobias Eisenhandler but all five children used the name Werner.

Thank you for this reply. I have tried the town finder, but haven't made any progress yet (will keep trying).

Google maps shows a village named Ulanów with a Nowe Miasto about 65 km away. It appears that Nowe Miasto was absorbed into Rzeszów but it still shows up on the map. The other Nowe Miasto villages in Poland are much further away from Ulanów, so this is the most likely choice. This area was part of the Austrian partition of Poland which may have facilitated the family moving to Vienna. FamilySearch.org catalog has one film of Jewish regulations for each Ulanów and Nowe Miasto, but no Jewish metrical records. You might want to check the Polish archives to see if they have any holdings for these villages.

Thank you for this information. I agree that this seems to be the most likely Ulanow. I will try to investigate further.

Please can you tell me how to access official records for the Nowe Miasto near Rzeszow?
Thank you again,
