Outstanding news for researchers! Selected German-language periodicals from the 19th and early 20th centuries were made available by Digitales Forum Mittel- und Osteuropa (Digital Forum Central and Eastern Europe) at:


Let me explain, why I am so enthusiastic about this new archive. Among currently 71 periodicals, to be extended continously, most of them with Jewish focus, we discover from Czernowitz

Ostjüdische Zeitung 1919 - 1937
Neue Jüdische Rundschau 1926 - 1930

The periodicals are INDEXED AND FULLY SEARCHABLE! Check it out! Entering f. i. "Hauster" into the search engine leads to 4 relevant hits from Czernowitz:

>From Neue Jüdische Rundschau, 30-Aug-1929 I learn that my late father Julius Hauster won for Makkabi Czernowitz the 1929 Bukovinian Swimming Championship in side stroke. From Ostjüdische Zeitung I learn that my late grandfather Elias Hauster became court expert witness for civil engineering in 1924, attended as high commissioner of public works the ceremonial opening of the Czernowitz Special Technical Industrial School in 1925 and contributed to a donation campaign in 1930.

Great results for such a simple query! Don't hesitate to try your luck and keep in mind, that - additional to DiFMOE - the most sophisticated Online Newspapers Archives for Czernowitzers / Bukovinians are:

ANNO: http://anno.onb.ac.at/
LIBRARIA: http://libraria.ua/index.php

Enjoy the research and the results!
