A few years ago the United States Holocaust Memorial Museum filmed pre-war
and immediate post-war Jewish community records at a number of German
cities. I am gradually preparing finding aids for each of them and the
finding aids will be available in GerSig's archives. The first two of
these, Mannheim and Württemburg (Stuttgart), have been sent to GerSig and
should be available [on the GerSIG website] shortly. [When they are posted
at our website the posting will be announced here].
Summaries of these finding aids will also be posted shortly. I hope that
this will encourage readers to make financial contributions to JewishGen.
Each collection contains large numbers of name lists, which are identified
but usually have not been digitized.
I would welcome members' offers to digitize individual lists
of personal interest for inclusion in JewishGen's archives.
Where this is not possible, I am prepared to search the
individual records in response to reasonable requests for individual names,
but, please, nothing like all persons named Levi in Southern Germany.
