INTRO- Researching the SPRUNG family from Leipzig, Germany and Brody, Poland #germany


Peter Sprung <psprung@...>
 

Dear GerSig,

I just joined this group. I've been doing genealogy research for only
a few months, and consider myself a beginner. I live in Washington,
D.C. and my native language is English. I'm a first generation American.
I'm an intermediate in using a computer. I have extensive experience
in using the internet.

I've conducted research on the website of Yad Vashem, the "Memorial
Book of the Victims of Persecution of Jews under the National
Socialist Tyranny," and several other sources.

For certain of my great-grandparents, grandparents, great aunts and
uncles, aunts and uncles, and second cousins, I've identified familial
relationships, birth dates and locations, death dates and locations,
of dates and locations of deportation and incarceration, etc.

Insofar as most of these persons were murdered in the Holocaust, I
know comparatively little about them or their histories. Accordingly,
my primary research goals are to:

(1) identify biographical information and any other information about
the individuals listed below, as well as other family members; (2)
connect with individuals who may have already collected information
about these individuals or other family members, or receive direction
to others who who may have collected such information; (3) identify
investigative leads or sources of information with which I can conduct
additional research; and (4) identify the names, biographical
information, and any other information about any other relatives of
the individuals listed below.

My JGFF Research ID number is 796223.
