As my paternal family MAERZ originates >from Uhersky Brod, I have been using
the local cemetery's web site (http://www.uh.brod.cz/kever) for a long time.
Today I again tried, but it did not open any more. Does anybody happen to
know what has happened to this most valuable web site?
Thanks,

Jewish vital records in Catholic registers? #austria-czech

Philip Moravcik <morav@...>
 

I have heard that records of Jewish births, deaths, and maybe marriages
were sometimes recorded in the registers of the local Catholic parish in
which the community lived. I spent many happy hours in the archives in
Prague looking for records of my ancestors but was disappointed to find
the record quite incomplete. I am interested in trying the Catholic
registers and wonder if anyone has had any success finding Jewish
ancestors records in these, and could tell me how to go about finding the
right registers (where are they archived?).

Thank you.

WW1 - Military record of Max Isidore OESTERREICHER #austria-czech

nicky carklin <nixxyc@...>
 

I would like to find information about my Great Grandfather, Max
Isidore OESTERREICHER, who was killed in the First World War.
Unfortunately I have very little information to go on. All I know is
that he was born somewhere in Czechoslovakia (what was then, I
presume, Austria-Hungary?) in a town allegedly called "Teplichernow",
however I can find no evidence that such a place even exists! Would
anyone have an idea as to where this might actually refer? He then
moved to Pritzwalk in Germany, and >from there to Berlin. I am
uncertain as to whether he would have fought for Germany (where he was
living when the war began) or for Austria-Hungary (where he was born).

I managed to get my hands on the book "Die Judischen gefallenen des
Deutschen Heeres, des Deutschen Marine und der Deutschen Schutztruppen
1914-1918",which lists Jewish German soldiers killed in action,
however his name was not in there. Can anyone advise as to what my
next step should be, or perhaps provide me with details of archives
where I can get further information? Any help would be appreciated.

Many thanks,

Germany Approves Release of ITS Records #austria-czech

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.

The ITS claims to hold 40 million pieces of information including
deportation lists, concentration camp death lists, ghetto and post-war
refugee records.

For more information: http://www.avotaynu.com/nu/v07n05.htm and/or the
Associated Press version of the new conference can be read at
http://hosted.ap.org/dynamic/stories/N/NAZI_ARCHIVES?SITE=AP&SECTION=HOME&TE
MPLATE=DEFAULT&CTIME=2006-04-18-12-58-58.

Making these records public will be one of the most valuable sources of
information about the fate of people caught up in the Holocaust.

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

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

michael miller <mllm39@...>
 

Regarding Celia Male's posting about Kostel/Podivin, Count
Lichtenstein was one of the largest land owners in Soutwestern
Moravia, and Kostel/Podivin was one of his properties. The original
materials are probably in the Moravsky Zemsky Archiv (Brno), though
there are some materials in Schloss Lichtenstein in Vienna.
Best,
Michael Miller

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]

Ellis Island Puzzle Solved. #general

Joseph Hirschfield
 

I could never figure out why it was impossible for me to find my grandfather
Schmuel MINOWITSKI's immigration record on the Ellis Island website. I did
however learn >from another source the ship he was on and the arrival date and
was then was able to find obtain a manifest film >from the Mormon Family
History Center.

With the manifest in hand I then looked up on the Ellis Island site the name
of another ship passenger who was on the same manifest page as my
grandfather. I wanted to see how the Ellis Island transcriber had deciphered the
spelling of my grandfather's name. So I clicked on "view text version manifest"
which shows all the passengers on the page. Lo and behold this is how he was
identified: Schmuel M... Yes, just his first name and only M for an
initial, followed by three dots.

I wonder if any of you would be successful in finding your missing relatives
by doing a similar search on the Ellis Island site; namely use a first name
and then for a last name enter only an initial followed by three dots.

I have sent a suggested correction to Ellis Island to request them to update
their record.

Re: Waslowces #general

Charles Mahler
 

Dear Genners,
Avigdor Ben-Dov asked: "Has anyone knowledge of a Ukrainian battalion
organized by the Germans called the "Waslowces"?
They operated in Poland against the Polish and Russian partisans hiding in
the forests and of course murdered Jews as part of their activities. I
wonder if the name is associated with the town in Ukraine of the same name.
I have also seen it spelled Wlasowce."
If you Google: "Vlasov's forgotten army" you will find all the info about
this Russian general and his collaboration with the Nazis. Wikipedia also
discusses this topic.
