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

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.

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.

If anyone lives near a LDS (Mormon) research center, you can get access to these military records but you have to go in person. They might politely give you a spiel about their church.

There are many centers around the world.

I read that many Polish records were destroyed during the destruction of Warsaw but on the off chance the Lviv archives retained the west Ukrainian records of Austrian soldiers (and were then photographed by the LDS), maybe they exist after all.

Vanished World Blog features Podhajce

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!

Best from Lviv (Lwów, Lemberg),

Researching Kessler Family in Podhajce pre WWII

Rick Nicholson <rnhnicholson@...>
 

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,

Helena Nicholson

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.

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.

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,

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

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,
