#Genealogy #Archives – LDS Microfilm: Rent Some …

by C. Michael Eliasz-Solomon

It looks like the LDS (aka Mormons) have implemented online microfilm rentals. My local Family History Center told me about this feature back in the Fall of 2010 — so I have been waiting. It is only on the West Coast now … here’s the news from About.com:

Can anyone tell me when it will be available on the East Coast? I recommend using the LDS microfilms before heading to Poland. You need to train yourself on the paleography of the older handwriting and languages involved. The old Cyrillic (pre-1918 reforms) is enough different that expert Russian Language speakers struggle because they have not see all of the characters that used to exist.

#Jewish #Genealogy – A Continuing Homage to Moja żona

by C. Michael Eliasz-Solomon

I am continuing my efforts to retrieve/extract the Jewish records from the Catholic parish of Biechow during the years when the Catholic Church was ordered to act the civil registration authority.  My last posting was for the years 1810-1815 inclusive.

These are the Jewish Births from 1816 in Biechow parish. For the record, there is not any record of 1817 on the microfilm. Ergo, this posting brings us upto: 1810-1817 inclusive. The prior post is here .

Year: 1816      Priest: Jozef Parzelski         Gmina: Biechow     Powiat: Stopnica     Departement: Krakow      93 Total Births

Record #11     Date: 1/31/1816

Father: Dawid Matusowicz, Pakiarz, Age 22, Biechow   House #23

Mother: Estera z Isserow, age 20

Baby: Jasek

Witnesses:  Jaska Walsowicz, pakiarz, age 38 & Rzelika Chaymowicz, kaczmarz,  <no age>

That is it for 1816 only 3 out of 93 total  = 3.22% of the births in the “parish”.
