Subject: [podhajce] Wojciechowski's from Podhajce

 
Hello,

My name is Sam Orlando.  I have been working on my family tree for 3 years, and want to start digging in to my mother's side of the family.  My maternal grandmother is a Wojceichowski who was born in Jaśniszcze, Tarnopol, Poland to Tomasz Wojciechowski (1895-1974) who was born in Podhajce, and Stanisława
Sztrekier (1905-1950), who was born in Jaśniszcze, Tarnopol, Poland. My grandmother told me that all her aunts, uncles, grandparents who were Wojciechowski's were all from Podhajce.  I am not sure if there are any left there.  I understand that many Poles were forces from the area by the Soviets and Ukrainians after WWII.  Is there anywhere online that I can start to look for Polish birth, death or marriage records from Podhajce?  Any help would be greatly appreciated.  Thanks in advance.

If you are on ancestry.com, this link should take you to my great grandfather, Tomasz Wojciechowski.

Fw: [galicia] JRI-Poland Adds New Data for Galician Towns

Jean Rosenbaum <mervinr@...>
 

SOME NEW PODHAJCE DATA AVAILABLE -----Original Message----- From: Mark Halpern <mark@...> Sent: Thursday, December 10, 2015 8:26 AM To: Gesher Galicia SIG


Subject: [galicia] JRI-Poland Adds New Data for Galician Towns


I am proud to announce that JRI-Poland has recently added record indices for a number of towns in Galicia to our online database at http://www.jri-poland.org/jriplweb.htm. All the following data comes from the AGAD Archive in Warsaw.


- Bialy Kamien 1897-1913 deaths - Drohobycz 1914 births, marriages, and deaths
- Horodenka 1909-1913 births - Komarno 1905-1914 marriages
- Kozowa 1877-1913 marriages - Podhajce 1902, 1909-1910 birth index data and 1901, 1903 death index data (These are extracts of data from index books for years where the actual records have not survived.)
- Podwoloczyska 1883-1911 marriages
- Stryj 1914 births, 1914 marriages, 1906-1914 deaths


As many of you know, JRI-Poland has been linking our index entries to the images of records that are placed online by the AGAD Archive. For these new record indices, links have not yet been created. Our Database Manager will be creating links to nearby images for those records where images exist. We will make that announcement when the links are completed. Happy Hanukkah to all and we hope that this data will bring some "light" to your holiday. Mark Halpern JRI-Poland AGAD Archive Coordinator ~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

Fw: Trying to find my grandmother's family

Ellen Epstein
 





Hello,

My grandmother, Channah Goldfleiss, emigrated to NY from Podhajce in 1921 when she was 18, according to her records from Ellis Island.  Unfortunately, she didn’t speak about her family very much and I didn’t think to ask until it was too late.  I miss her terribly and would like to honor her memory by trying to find out what became of them.

I know that her father and her brother passed away prior to her leaving.  She could never find any traces of her mother and her sister(s).  I don’t know if she had any other siblings.  I checked the yizkor entries and no one with the last name of Goldfleiss was listed.  I was hoping that someone in your group would have some information about the family or could give me an idea where to start looking.

Thank you so much for your help.

Kindest regards,

Ellen Epstein

Hi Ellen,

 you might try the following sites: www.jewishgen.org and yadvashem.org

It is possible that your relatives were from a village in the Podhajce district and not in the town itself? Yizkor books may not list them in that case.

Try to do a search in a wider area ( having been in three different countries between WW1 and 2, Galizia can be a hard place to search in).

Get a person saavy w internet searching if it isnt your thing...you should find something.

Also if Goldfleiss isnt her maiden name maybe you will find her under a different name.

Good luck
Jeff

Jeff,

Thank you so much.  Goldfleiss is her maiden name.  I think I've searched yadvashem previously but I will try that in addition to jewishgen.  If you have any other ideas, please let me know.

I should have asked her more and now it's too late.

Regards,
Ellen Epstein

Hello,  my great grandfather was born  in podhajce (now in Ukraine) and emigrated to the US at the end of the 19th century.  I happen to be in Ukraine now and plan to visit the town where he came from.  Does anyone have any contacts in the area who I might reach out to for information or assistance?  
Thanks,

Hi Faye,

Try calling Meylach Shechet, he is an important Jewish figure in Ukraine, he lives in Lviv and protects many Jewish sites. He may have a guide for you. 

meylach@...

skype: meylakh.sheykhet

Meylakh fenced in the massive Pidhaitsi Jewish cemetery about 10 years ago.

I sent Meylakh a skype message with your email address.

I used Lviv-based Alex Dunai in 2000 as a guide. He drove me out to Pidhaitsi and interviewed people and translated for me, so I understood what everyone in the town was saying (they were nice people in town and local efforts were recently made to clean up and secure the synagogue).

I met Alex 16 years ago so it is possible he does not do tours anymore.

Mother's Family From Podhajce

rnhnicholson@...
 

Hello all, my name is Helena and I am researching my mother's family who lived in Podhajce before the war.  My mother's name was Czarna Kessler,  She had 2 brothers, Chaim and Jacob and a half sister Regina.  


I am just starting my research to trace my mother's early years up until my grandmother and her were deported during the war.  Any information or direction would be greatly appreciated.


Thank you

Hello all,

My name is Helena Nicholson.  My mother was born in Podhajce before WWII and lived there until the Germans came thru.  Her name was Czarna Kessler.  She had 2 brothers, Chaim and Jacob, both older than her, and a half-sister Regina.  From the stories I was told, my grandfather raised horses until he passed away.  

I am just beginning my research on my mother and would welcome any information or direction in my search.  

Thank you,

Podhajcers… ah gitten Pesach!  

The forwarded message below is from a friend of mine, Christian Herrmann, who just today has been in Pidhaitsi/Podhajce. He is a constant traveller and blogger. He and friends have been for several years criss-crossing Galicia, Bukovina, Romania, Ukraine, looking for signs of Jewish life and lives past.  Christian’s Blog posts chronicle his travels — basically asking the same question in each place: “Where are the Jews — what happened to them — what is left?”  He paints in photographs and in the words of an an explorer.  

The link below gets you to today’s journey — past explorations can be found at the very end of the page.

Dear all,

If you travel in Galicia, you are crossing a continent. The region is a compaction of European history. Leaving Chortkiv in the morning, my friends and I have been to Buchach, Monastyryska, Pidhaitsi and Peremyshliany today. A day of discoveries – pleasant and painful ones.

As we have been to Pidaitsi, this blog post comes along with special greetings to Jerome Schatten, whos ancestors came from Pidhaitsi! Thank you for everything, Jerome!

anyone have luck finding Austro-Hungarian military records?

JK
 

Hello All,

Just curious, has anyone found any online Austrian military records for pre-WW1 Podhajcers?

The online Mormon Church database seems to have them but you need some kind of special clearance
that their online representative was unable to give me.

I spoke to someone working at the Mormon Church in Vienna, Austria (where I live) and they said if I go to their
center they will give me access, but only onsite, where I assume I will be given a proselytizing spiel.

regards,
Jeff Kellner
