Podhajce Indexes

Jean Rosenbaum <mervinr@...>
 

The Polish State Archives and Jewish Records Indexing-Poland have reached an agreement to expand access to Jewish records.  This will include linking indexes from JRI-Poland with images of records housed by the Polish State Archives. Records from Podhajce will be included when funds become available to do so.  These records include Births—1906-08, Marriages—1906, 10 and Deaths—1906-10.  I have learned that the cost for indexing these records is $475.  However, we have on account $110 from previous contributions, so the amount needed to be raised is only $365.
 
If you would like to contribute toward making this happen, please go to www.jri-poland.org and click on Support/Donations.
 
I have no further information on the project.  The project head is Mark Halpern  mark@...

I used Alex Dunaj and must say he was courteous, enthusiastic, on-time and not expensive...in 2000 it cost something like $125 for a day with him and a car...but I am sure he will have raised prices because of higher demand and inflation, particularly with regards to fuel...

If you have the money, I recommend spending two days where you want to go...an afternoon is just not enough...the hotel on main street is basic but cheap...

I think the guy who wrote Everything is Illuminated used him too...remember reading about it in the NYT Sunday Magazine...

If you look at the JewishGen archives
you will see the name of Alex Dunai who comes with fine
recommendations. Samuel's parents probably only had a
religious wedding so it was not recognized by the
authorities so he was considered illegitimate and had to
take his mother's name.  Lots of Buchwalds in the area
and at least one in my research.

For some reason he was made to take his mother's last name
and not his father's. His father's last name was pronounced
Vee-tes. I have been diagnosed with ALS and this is most
certainly on my bucket list. If anyone has any information

Publishing Podhajce Yizkor Book

Jean Rosenbaum <mervinr@...>
 

There is a new project sponsored by JewishGen called Yizkor-Books-in-Print.  We have the wonderful opportunity of having the English translation of the Podhajce Yizkor Book included.  There is no cost involved for us in publishing the book.  It would simply be available for purchase by anyone who wants a copy.
 
It is, of course, possible to read the translation on the Podhajce webpage by going to kehilalinks.jewishgen.org/podhajce, but having it in book form would make it much more readily accessible.   However, some work is needed to put the book on the fast track for publication.  Someone needs to put all the text into an MS WORD document formatted with one inch borders and with headings and sub headings.  I hope that someone in our group is willing and able to take on this assignment.  It would be a real mitzvah.
 
Please do not contact me for further information.  Instead write to Joel Alpert, the coordinator of the project, at joel.alpert@... to further details.

Up-dated Podhajce webpage

Jean Rosenbaum <mervinr@...>
 

Webmaster Jerome Schatten has added a number of new items to the Podhajce
website at www.kehilalinks.jewishgen.org/Podhajce

In the Podhajce History section, there is an article from the Encyclopedia
of Jewish Life Before and During the Holocaust. Also in that section are
3 relevant New York incorporation documents from the American Jewish
Historical Society.

Revisions were made to a section now titled Podhajce Synagogues, Cemeteries and Memorials.

A memoir by Tamara Mish was added to the Personal Memoirs section.

An additional book was placed in the Recommended Reading section.

If not, I wouldn't want to deprive someone else of having the list. It sounds like a very important piece of history that you have discovered!

I am doing some serious down-sizing and have several files of reseach
material
that I no longer need. If anyone (in the U.S.) would like to have any
particular file, just send me your snail mail address, and I'll get it off
to you.

Available files:

1. Immigrant ship information, including ships sailing from the ports of
Bremen and Hamburg. Also included is doing research on records from Castle
Garden and Ellis Island.
2. Tips on getting translations into English. Includes guides on doing
translations from both Russian and Polish documents.
3. Some general information on Ukraine plus tips on doing research there.
4. Sefer Ha-prenumerantn. This is in Hebrew and Yiddish. It was the
custom among Jewish writers of the past few hundred years to obtain
assistance in publishing their work by soliciting advance funds from
potential customers. I have identified the books for which advanced funds
came from residents of Podhajce, but I have not tried to translate the
names of the people who made the contributions.
5. A list of voters for Parliament from Podhajce from the year 1870. (Very
difficult to read script.)

Dear Julia,
JewishGen's Family Finder has 102 researchers listed for Podgaytsy with 195 entries. Because the Jewish population in 1880 was 4,012 and in 1910 3,497, someone on the list might be familiar with these names. Emailing to some of the older researchers to ask about their research sources might be a good idea.
