Two new census-like sources from Altschottland (Danzig) are now searchable via JewishGen's Unified SearchGermany Database, and Poland Database: Familienbuch 1850-1879 and Familienbuch 1880-1882. Each is like a census that was updated continuously during the stated period, whenever people were born, married, died, or emigrated.

Familienbuch 1850-1879:

Entries are grouped by family and typically include each person's given name, surname or maiden name, relationship to the head of household (e.g., wife), and date of birth (for children). Many entries also include date of death, emigration destination, and, for children, marriage date and place and spouse's name. Some entries include references to other families (e.g., son of one family later became the head of household of another), previous spouses, occupational titles, Hebrew given names (displayed in the Given Name field after /), and status as a non-contributing member of the Community. When emigration destinations are given, it is not always clear whether they apply to the entire family or only some members; this ambiguity is noted in the Remarks column if present. All information has been transcribed. The earliest listed child's birth date is 1810. Many heads of household or their spouses were probably born before surname adoption in Danzig (1814). The original title written on the document is "General-Register der Gemeinde-Mitglieder der Altschottl. Juden-Gemeinde zu Danzig 1850."  There are 1075 entries.

Familienbuch 1880-1882:

Entries are grouped by family and typically include each person's given name, surname or maiden name, and relationship to the head of household (e.g., wife). Many entries also include date of birth. Some entries include date of death, previous spouse's name, occupational title, emigration destination, and, for children, marriage date and place and spouse's name. Relationship to the head of household is correlated with line number: line 2 is wife, lines 3a, 3b, ... are "children or other relatives." No children are individually identified as such explicitly, but there are explicit designations of other relatives — because of this, we assume lack of designation implies "child" and have indicated this as "[child]" in the Relationship field. All information has been transcribed. The original title written on the document is "General-Register der Mitglieder der Altschottländer Gemeinde vom 1 Juni 1880."  There are 418 entries.

These sources are files Da/1156 (1850-1879) and Da/596 (1880-1882) at the Central Archives for the History of the Jewish People in Jerusalem (CAHJP), and were acquired by the JewishGen Danzig/Gdańsk Research Division through the generosity of our donors. All transcription and proofreading was done by volunteers.

Several additional Danzig datasets will be posted online very soon. Others require varying amounts of proofreading or transcription and proofreading to complete. If you might like to volunteer to get Danzig records online quicker, please email me. We especially need volunteers who can read old German handwriting (Kurrent).
