Re: anyone have luck finding Austro-Hungarian military records?

Hello Jeff,

I'm doing my research about my family, borned in Bekersdorf Podhajce.
I'm doing it  at Mormon Church,in my city and the place is History Family Center where we can also ask for microfilms there. 
They never did that "proselytizing spiel". I was afraid about it too but never happened to me.
Sometimes, someone start to talking about their subjects but nothing that you have to heard.
I suggest you to go there and try. It helps me a lot.

Best Regards
Soraya B. Tony

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

They did give me the spiel.  I learned that a distant cousin of mine who married a Morman lady had previously agreed to my ancestor’s conversion.  After responding and refusing this conversion, supposedly the act has been removed.  However not until every relative of mine that I could find responded that the “cousin” who gave permission, did not have permission from us.  Carol Cohen

Thank you, Carol Cohen

HI Carol,
Sorry about that. So, I'm lucky, because I didn´t have this problem.
Probably it depends on the people that you meet.

Test Yahoo Podhajce Group > Groups.io Podhajce Group... Testing

Jerome Schatten
 

Greetings Podhajcers...

By now 79 of the 99 members of this group should have received a notice that I have moved the group from Yahoo Groups to Groups.IO. 20 email addresses bounced during the transition, and they, if they ever figure it out, those folks whose email has bounced will have to join the new group.

If you indeed received a notice, then you should be good to go. The URL of the new site is http://groups.io/g/podhajce/ It should allow you to send and receive messages just as before without changing your login name or password or anything else. The two interfaces, old and new look pretty much the same.

The main reason for switching to another provider for our discussion group is the miserable performance of Yahoo in protecting your data (and mine), and in general their new privacy policies which I could not in good conscience commit to, and by extension, commit you to.

For now, both portals should work. That is, if you post to, or read posts from http://groups.yahoo.com/podhajce/ OR http://groups.io/g/podhajce/  both should work and both should continue sending you mail. That said, after a while, the Yahoo group will not work because I will have not agreed to their privacy policy as a group owner.  

So there you are... Hopefully, either the new group's website on-line help can answer you questions, or I can try.

The best to you all and let's hope for more Podhajce group activity in the future than in the last year <g>.

Thank you Jerome for your efforts. I was in Podhajce about 18 months ago when I visited three nearby hamlets of Laskivtsi, Mateushivka and Vivsya. My great grandfather, Samuel BIEDER started life as a goose herd in Laskivtsi and ended up running a large leased estate with distillery at Vivsya. Today these remote Ruthenian hamlets look poor, run down with few people and crumbling houses along both sides of a lumpy pot holed track which in winter would turn to mud. Any young have left for the cities, mechanisation is low with mainly horses and carts and a few Soviet era army vehicles. The land/steppe is very horizontal with rich black soil. 
Few Jews would have lived in these hamlets but anyone with any connections here it would be great to connect.

Hi Jill and good good to hear from you again!

Did you by any chance take any photos on your journey through the hamlets? If so, you can post them to the website. I’m not quite sure how that works with the new site, but I’ll take a few moments to find out. I’m sure others would be interested in such photos if you have them.

All the best,
jerome

Re: anyone have luck finding Austro-Hungarian military records?

 

I have found a program that gets around the downloading restrictions on the familysearch.org films for Podhajce.  I’ve been trying to put together my Wojciechowski tree.  In time, I will download all the films from Podhajce to build our own accessible database to share with the group. 

I have one one folder downloaded so far, Podhajce - Marriages 1826-1868, Marriages 1876-1898, Deaths 1878-1898, Births, marriages, deaths 1878-1881

This is all so wonderful!  Thanks for letting me part of it.  My great grandmother was from Podhajce.  Her last name was Schimel.  First name was Chinka.  She married Moses Hutz from Kozowa and my grandmother was born there.....Cirl Chancia Hutz.  
May I ask, if anyone has visited Podhajce, is it a safe place to go to?  Do I need a guide?  Where do I fly in to?  I would love to visit Podhajce and Kozowa.  I am a flight attendant so I can do all of this for very little money.  I just do not know how to begin.
Any help would be appreciated!!

That said: the folder at that location ‘Podhajce - Marriages 1826-1868…' was reported as being empty. You might want to give that another look?

Re: anyone have luck finding Austro-Hungarian military records?

 

Jerome,

I apologize for the truncated link.  I was trying to post it from my phone.  Additionally, the file was empty because I was uploading a large amount of files and it had not yet started to update the folder.  The images are now uploading to the folder. 

Again, here is the link:  https://1drv.ms/f/s!As-IUF0Wfp2Zj-YBTcP7bJVuZ-rF5Q

I won't be able to get to the family history library for about another week.  I will try to download another folder from Podhajce while I am there.  I am splitting my time between researching my Italian family on my father's side, and my Polish family on my mothers.  My maternal grandmother's father's family were Wojciechowski's from Podhajce.  My maternal grandmother's mother's family were from Podkamien.

Hi Sam… Perfect a - great job, nice high resolution which should make it quite useful for those who can decipher the Polish cursive writing (a job in itself, I guess).
