Thanks, Jean.  I'm putting that story with my Farb/Lerner information.  My sister put ketchup on everything when she was little, too.

Re: Farb/Lerner

JK
 

Any Podhajcers related to any of my relatives? All born in Podhajce. My grandparents moved to Hicksville, LI, NY.

My grandfather was Jakob Kellner (mothers maiden name, Kahn, first wife's: Feuerstein) 1875-1950. He had three sisters, possibly in Ohio? Occupation: harness-maker and upholstry repairman. Probably born in nearby Sokolov.

My grandma was Charna (Cecilia) Zitron/Citron. 1902-1966.

Family History Library (LDS) Records from Podhajce

 

I have downloaded many of the films that I was able to from the Family History Library for Podhajce. 
These records are separated into 3 religious denominations:

(The links below will take you to the Family History site)
1.  Roman Catholic Records
2.  Jewish Records
3.  Greek Catholic

There were some Roman Catholic Records and Greek Catholic Records that I still need to finish downloading, but need to be at a Family History Center to do so.  Additionally, there were a few films that have not been digitized yet and are only available on microfilm.  Unless these become available within the next few years, it's probable that you need go to Salt Lake City to view because they stopped their microfilm program in September of 2017.

The following link will take you to my Podhajce Googledrive files.  Hopefully we all can now start figuring out how we all relate. 

 Podhajce Google Drive Files. 

Re: Family History Library (LDS) Records from Podhajce

 

I forgot to say, the films are still uploading and should be done in about 2 1/2 - 3 hours.

Seeking Information; Moshel Family

Netanel Moshel
 

Hi

My grandfather, Abraham Hillel Moshel, was born in Podhajce in 1918, he emigrated to Melbourne, Australia after the Holocaust in 1950 (around). He passed away in 2010. 

I'm trying to find relatives, he had a very large family, and we don't have much information about them. He had 10 siblings, we know of one sibling, Boruch, who moved to Israel, who died in the 50's. Apart from that, we don't know much.

He spoke a lot about Podhajce, he had a book called Sefer Podhajce. He spoke about getting a blessing from Reb Meir from Premishlan, which was nearby. 

Would love to find some connections.

Thanks

Netanel Moshel

The Sefer Podhajce has been translated into English.  Go to www.kehilalinks.jewishgen.org/Podhajce and click on Yizkor Books.  On page 275, there is a picture of some Moshel family members.

Re: Seeking Information; Moshel Family

Hi Netanel,
My maternal grandfather, Mendel Walfish and my uncles Joseph and Lou, were from Podhajce. I have visited both Podhajce and Premishlany in the '90's. I think I visited the ohel of Rabbi Meir. If I can can find the photo and if my memory is correct, I will post it.
There is a memoir about Podhajce during the Holocaust that was written by Dr. Baruch Milch who served as a physician there, "Can Heaven be Void." His brother-in-law was my great uncle, Sheah Walfish. He and his family perished. Dr. Milch writes so lovingly of him and it is something that I have treasured knowing. I have read this book (which I own) and can attest to the impact of the powerful and  unforgettable description of what he witnessed and experienced and survived.
I think that some of the surviving Podhajce Milch family emigrated to Australia and Israel.
Good luck in your  search.

Cynthia Singer

Righteous Gentile Award for Pidhajcer

JK
 

When I visited Pidhajce in 1999, the 3 generational Sikorski family invited me to their house and presented me with the attached certificate for Ms. Sikorska.

The eldest Sikorski I met at the house was the daughter of the awarded recipient, who hid two Jewish boys named Kessler (I seem to remember that their father was an optometrist?)

Someone informed on her and she and the boys were murdered.

Among the elderly Ukrainians I met, many came forward and said that relations were relatively good between the Jews and Ukrainians but the fascist component in town was enough to enable the Holocaust. Fascists were usually awarded stolen land and property, so they had a foul motive for their politics.

An Ukrainian American in the Midwest stands accused of war crimes in Pidhajce, interesting to note for a massacre of Christians in the town. The Ukrainian auxilliary units employed by the Nazis also killed Christians for partisan activities and hiding Jews...and once the war was over they expelled and murdered most of the Polish population of west Ukraine.

looking for ancestors from Podhajce

Hello everyone, I have an unusual question. According to a family story, my great-grandfather married a girl of Jewish descent. Because she came from a religious family, she was considered dead by this family, as if she never lived. My great-grandmother's family left. And the whole thing is happening in Podhajce or the surrounding area. Has anyone heard such a story? Maybe there are some people who have left the community? I would be very grateful for any information.

Re: Steps to research ancestors - Raver or Rawer, Esecover and Paukler.

Jerome Schatten
 

Andrew...

Well, it would help if you told us a bit about what you have tried and what results you obtained...

For example, there's some low hanging fruit that most folks would have tried:
Google the surnames of interest along with 'podhajce'; read all you can on 'jewishgen.org' about Podhajce; JewishGen is an excellent way to find other researchers that are researching the surnames you are interested in. Spend some time and learn to use it. Use maps -- get a feel for the large towns nearby where your surnames of interest may have moved to; and so on, as far away as (100+km). Podhajce was in AH Galicia... there's a Galica Sig on JewishGen...  Search the databases on Ehpes.com for surnames of interest. Learn to look for alternate spellings of your surnames -- spelling in many cases depended on who was recording what they heard. 

That's how I started... I was amazed to find that my whole family deserted Podhajce for Czernowitz in the late 1890's and there were records in the Czernowitz archives that didn't exist in Podhajce concerning them. From there I found other kindred spirits that were able to help me.  

So let us know what you have tried... If you haven't tried any of the above, then google 'genealogical research' and that should get you started.

Also, look for Ellis Island records for ships landing in NY around the turn of the century where folks from Podhajce were coming in by by the droves...  Have you a handle on any relatives with the surnames you are interested in or are related to you?

As I said, you didn't disclose much... but these are some of easy ways to begin.

Best.

Stephen, Hi.
The reason I’m reaching out to you is because my surname is also Baumrind and I would like to find out if we are related. You seem to know the Baumrind’s family History and since it’s not such a common name, I’d be eager to find out more.
