How to record SS murders in family tree ??? #germany

Hansmartin Unger <hans-martinunger@...>
 

Hi
I wonder how to name the cause of death in my family-register.

Is it right to write: "died on..... in the Kz of....." or better "murdered in
the KZ of........."

I thank you for any information in advance.

Familiants and Name Changes in Kostel/Podivin, 1787 #austria-czech

Celia Male <celiamale@...>
 

I wrote yesterday about the article [see footnote] I
had found which listed, in tabular form, the
familiants and name changes in Kostel/Podivin, Moravia
in 1787. The foreword says that the original
manuscript lies in the hiesigen [local] Schlossarchive
{Castle Archive} of the Count of Lichtenstein
[1929/30] - and I assume it means in Lundenburg or
Podivin, as that is given as the location of the
author, Dr Heinrich SCHWENGER. Where is the original
now? I have no idea - either in Brno or Prague or lost
for ever.

The document was signed 3 Nov 1787. As the Toleranz
Patent of Josef II was issued on July 28 1787, the
community in Kostel/Podivin was quite quick in
choosing their names. Signatories were the Landes
Rabbiner - Joseph Gerson Abraham [Chajes]; Samson
AUSTERLITZ, Alteste des Brunner Kreises ]; Thomas
Franz LUDWIG [Amtmann], Abraham DEUTSCHER and Aron
UNGER [both Geschworener - judge/juror] and Henoch
BOHMER [Judenrichter].

This list may also appear in the Hugo Gold compendium
on the Jews and Jewish communities of Moravia - as I
do not have it in front of me, I cannot comment,
however were it in there in full, I think we would
have heard about it before.

This document format may represent the form of the
original familiant lists in Moravia and perhaps
Bohemia also, as all the family is listed including
daughters - no ages are given. Sadly, there is no
annotation about married sons or comments about
family members who have moved away.

The list has 85 families living in 44 houses with
about 300 listed people.

Here are some name changes which maybe of interest.
The familiant no. precedes name - I have also given
the total no. in the family followed by the total
number of sons and daughters in brackets, with sons
first ie [3+1]. The wife in implied. However, if the
numbers do not add up, she must have died.

1. Aron Philip to Aron WEINBERGER 5 [0+3]
2. Hertz Mandl to Emanuel WESELY 6 [3+1]
4. Jakob Moses to Henoch BOHMER 5 [1+3] - wife died?
8. Ephraim Aron to Ephraim MORGENSTERN 4 [1+1]
9. Aron Epraim to Aron MORGENSTERN 3 [0+1]
11. Aron Presburger to Aron UNGER 6 [2+2]
12. Abraham Lobl to Abraham PETERSELKA 5 [2+1]
22. Moses Lomnitz to Moses KONSTANDT 4 [0+2]
23. Konna Mandl to Abidon KONSTANDT 6 [3+1]
24. Mandl Herschl to Emanuel KONSTANDT 2 [0+0]
28. Philip Jakob to Philip TICHY 3 [0+1]
40. Ephraim Jakob to Ephraim BODNER 4 [1+1]
42. Abraham Aron to Abraham DEUTSCHER 4 [0+2]
47. Moses Isak to Moses WEIGEL 3 [1+0]
57. Herschl Isak to Isak WEIGL 4 [1+1]
58. Gabriel Lobl to Gabriel EISINGER 6 [0+4]
61. Markus Lobisch to Markus EISINGER 4 [3+0]
65. Samuel Aron to Samuel PETERSILKA 4 [2+0]
68. Lobl Michl to Juda EISINGER 2 [1+0] - no wife
69. Schaje Joseph to Josias BOCK 2 [0+0]
74. Jakob Tichy to Jakob TICHY [stet] 2 [0+0]
84. Mendl Herschl to Markus BITTNER 2 [0+0]

Other names are:

BAS, BETZISKA, BUCHBINDER, ENGL, FILLINGER, FLEISCHER,
FUTTER, GRUNBAUM, HAUSER, HELLER, HESKI, HIRSCH,
HOCHFELD, HOHENBERGER, HUBER, HUNSER, JELLINEK,
JESERNOWSKY, JOCHTNER, KELLNER, KOHN, KONIG, KRALL,
KUDELARZ, LOW, NEUMANN, PASCHKUS, ROSENBERGER,
ROSENZWEIG, SACHS, SCHICK, SCHLAGTER, SCHULMEISTER,
SCHUSTAK, SIGMUND, SINGER, SPITZ, STRAUSSLER, WEINIG,
WEISS, WITTAL, ZELINKA.

Here, for a change, we see a family actually opting
for the name KOHN - yet one hundred years later their
descendants were probably changing it yet again!

INTRO - researching FREUND family Berlin > NY 1892 #germany

Art and Marti <ajannery@...>
 

Hi GerSig,
I just joined the group. I have been doing genealogy research for about 39
years. I consider myself to be a novice, however, in doing German Jewish
genealogy research. I live in a small City in the State of Florida, USA.
My native language is English [American] and I also know French, and am
presently self-tutoring in both German and Swedish.
I consider my self as perhaps advanced in using a computer. My experience
in using the Internet is at least intermediate.

I have identified the names of my wife's grandfather and great grandfather
and great grandmother as well as the death date of my wife's grandfather.

My primary research goals is now to find out as much as I possibly can about
my wife's Jewish Grandfather, Eugen FREUND [Berlin,Germany ---->NYC abt. 1892]
[aka Eugene FRIEND]. His father was Epharim Heinrich FREUND and his
mother was probably Rose/Pauline LEWIN / LEVIN / LEVILLE.

I have read the City Directories of Berlin, as well as the Civil
Registration records for Berlin around 1870 and both have yielded some
information re Eugen’s birth/parentage, and siblings.

are any surviving members of the family we would like to hear >from them.
There were some members of the family living in Riga, Latvia, one who was
living in Lithuania and immigrated to Uruguay, SA. There was one who became
an automotive engineer and was living somewhere in Russia in 1935.

If anyone has any idea of where I could find out what happened to the family

I am asking for this information for a cousin who is on sabbatical in

Latacz. I found one reference to Latacz in Suzan Wynne's book "Finding your
Jewish Roots in Galicia." According to that reference, it is in Zaleszcyki
district, and Uscieczko sub-district. No reference to it anywhere else. I
was hoping to find coordinates or a map reference on the web.

Germany Approves Release of ITS Records #germany

Sally Goodman <sbgoody@...>
 

Congratulations and thank you Gary Mokotoff and Peter Lande and all those
who have fought long and hard to convince the International Tracing Service
(ITS) to open their record collection for copying to the eleven countries
that make up the ITS committee. For more information:

http://www.avotaynu.com/nu/v07n05.htm

"The holdings of the International Tracing Service are one of the most
valuable sources of information about the fate of people, both victims and
survivors, caught up in the Holocaust. Their records place an individual at
a specific place and time during the Holocaust period. They claim to have 40
million such pieces of information. Their sources, to name a few, are
deportation lists, concentration camp death lists, ghetto records and
post-war refugee records."

We have waited for this for a long time and we are grateful to everyone for
making this happen.
