Re: Czech search engine: Could ROZENBERK be a "sound-alike?" #austria-czech

This subject line has now resulted in five postings on a relatively simple
linguistic problem. We should all now know that ROSENBERG and ROZENBERK/
ROZEMBERK are synonymous [although we cannot reproduce the diacriticals
in the Czech spellings].

I am not a Czech-speaker and do not wish to sound repetitive, but before
sending a message to the SIG one should always consult the message archives.
Many of the subjects which a new member may be researching {or alternatively
established members may be starting on a new aspect of their research} may
have been discussed before on our SIG which has been going strong for 8
years. We now have a vast store of data in the message archives.

I recently mentioned that the *Auschwitz suitcase story* was a subject
three Siggers had already tackled. Similarly, the ROSENBERG story could have
been solved by *two mouse clicks* by looking at the Austria-Czech message
archives where we have five postings which appear under a key word search
*ROSENBERG*.

One is entitled: The Jews of Rozmberk [Rosenberg], Bohemia and this
confirms Hanus Grab's reply today.

Using the Austria-Czech message archives, and if you wish to be more
thorough, all the other message archives, definitely enhances research
and results in far more interesting and informative postings. The leads
and head start one obtains >from the archives can be invaluable. One can
refer to previous postings as a reference but extensive re-quotes are
not permitted according to prevailing Jewishgen rules.

Sadly, Yad vashem also provides many clues, and here as a final say on
the subject, let us remember the one ROZENBERK/ROSENBERK listed on this
database:
Name: ROSENBERK Maximilian; DOB: 28/07/1903
Source: Terezinska Pametni Kniha/Theresienstaedter
Gedenkbuch, Terezinska Iniciativa, vol. I-II,
Melantrich, Praha 1995, vol. III Academia Verlag, Prag 2000
1st Transport: Transport Dc >from Praha to Terezin on 09/06/1943
2nd Transport Transport Ds >from Terezin to Auschwitz on 18/12/1943
Victim's status end WWII: Perished

We remember here today, through Max ROSENBERK >from Bohemia, all the
thousands of ROSENBERG of variant spellings - ROIZENBERG, ROZENBERG,
ROSENBERG, ROZEMBERK, ROSENBERK, ROZENBERK who lost their lives in
the holocaust.
