Searching for records of soldiers in the Franco-Prussian War #germany

Rubin, Michael <mrubin@...>
 

I have the exact brigade/regiment for an ancestor in the Franco-Prussian
War. Does anyone know how to locate records of soldiers who were in the
German army in 1871? Thanks.

Dear Gersiggers
Re: Name Adoption
My late father wrote a lot and among his papers I found a short text (3 - 4
pages) on adoption of names by German and Austrian Jews. Its main content is
a list of categories of adopted names as well as some other information. I
do not have references as to sources he used to write it. If the text is of
interest, I can translate it to English. To whom should I send it?

I have just found out the mother's name of a great uncle, Arnold Rene
Brucker, of mine who was born in Paris in 1895. His mother's name was Leone
Roux. We are not sure if she married my great grandfather, Emile (Rachmil)
Brucker. Emile was a tailor and came >from Romania/Austro-Hungary and settled
in Paris..

Rene Brucker was brought to the U.S. in 1903 with his father Emile Brucker
and step mother, Leontine Haguenauer, >from Paris, along with his two step
sisters, Alice and Yvonne. They settled in St. Paul Minnesota.

I am looking for a connection to any Brucker, Roux, and Haguenauer names
from Paris.

Dorothy,

Next time, instead of "Googling" use the Jewishgen ShtetlSeeker <grin>:
http://www.jewishgen.org/ShtetlSeeker/LocTown.asp

The following shtetl is a possible match to " Podhorndiszere".
There are other shtetlach that would be better matches for Podhordisz but since
this was your "guess" and the shtetl you are looking for is Podhorndiszere I
would say this is the best one:

Podhorodyszcze : 49°42' 24°19'
Current name: Podgorodishche
Alternate name: Podgorodyshche
Administrative District: Bobrka
Province: Lwow
57.6 miles W of Tarnopol
6.9 miles ESE of Lwow

To confirm it I went to the JRI-Poland Database:
http://www.jewishgen.org/JRI-PL/jriplweb.htm
and searched for the combination:
HOCHBERG / Podhorodyszcze and nothing came up....
but, with the combination:
HOCHBERG / Bobrka I found 9 records for this surname/shtetl combination.
Considering that Podhorodyszcze is only 4.7 miles N of Bobrka I would say,
if I was still in Las Vegas, that it was worth betting on it :-).

I have found my husband's grandfather's immigration manifest in 1898, Ellis

Podhordisz in Tarnapol? Lvov?

I tried googling the town and came upon yiskor and memorium data, however I
am at a loss as to the exact name of the town and if I can get other
information on this town. The surname Hochberg is on the list of surnames,
I just don't know how to continue with this.

If anyone can lead me in the right direction, I would appreciate it.

ALTER - Flour mill
BAUM - Flour mill and grain merchant
FISCHER - Flour mill
HABER - Flour mill
OLKNER - Flour mill

Miriam Margolyes asked about Cook County naturalizations. Well, Miriam,
there's an alternative to the Mormon microfilms!

The State of Illinois has IRAD...the Illinois Regional Archives Depository.
You can request 2 surnames-they will search the soundex for the name
and if found send you the info-at no charge...i believe they ask for a
donation. Call or write for their informational handouts and lists of the
documents for the county you are interested in. They not only have
naturalizations, but births, deaths and marriages, divorce, residence,real
property, personal property, estates, school attendance, court actions,
paupers, professions. ( not all of the types of records listed above is held
by IRAD for every county in Illinois)

Most of their records are >from 1877 to 1917.

For Chicago/Cook County: IRAD, Norteastern Illinois University, Ronald

For other counties: IRAD Information Services, .Illinois State Archives,
