Listing of Doctors in Bohemia, Moravia and Silesia in February 1929 #austria-czech

Celia Male <celiamale@...>
 

Erika Kalkofen-Frahne >from Dortmund, Germany and I have worked on
this posting together. Erika located a list of doctors and dentists
in 1929 in a 130-page document entitled: "Mitteilungen des Heilfonds
der offentlichen Bediensteten" - Verzeichnis der Vertragsarzte",

It encompasses Bohemia, Moravia, Silesia [only Freistadt, Freiwaldau,
Friedek, Hultschin, Jaegerndorf Cesky Tesin, Troppau and Wagstadt],
Slovakia, and Carpathian-Ruthenia. Most of the towns and villages
are listed by their Czech names - in some instances the equivalent
German name is given.

Many of the names are obviously Jewish: i.e. Leo POLLAK,
Jungmannova 22, 8-9,14-6, tel. 324-01 Praha II.

Nove Mesto,...FANTL, Julius, Hora Kutna, Radnicka ul. 635, 14-15, tel. 17...

ARNSTEIN, Ignac, Ceska Trebova 23,8-9,14-15,tel. 69 in Landskron (Lanskroun)

FLEISCHMANN, Oskar, Komenskeho 15,9-12,14-16.....

The Doctors on this list appear to have worked for health insurance systems.
Hospital doctors are not listed.

Erika will be happy to look up doctors for you in any location in this area.

Footnote: Has anyone any information on Karl LICHTENTAL (a friend of
Erika's grandfather's family in 1936?) in the area between Dresden and
Prague?

JG: Re: Census Undercounts - an enumerator's point of view #general

jeremy frankel
 

In the Discussion Group posting for May 2nd, Nick Landau wrote:
A household survey was proposed to supplement the Census.

It notes that "The original plan for the 2000 census called for the use of
scientific estimation only as a supplemental means of finding those people
who do not respond to traditional census methods."

I think that >from this it is apparent that at the highest level of the US
Government there was a concern about the inaccuracies and lack of coverage
of the Census in specific groups (particularly the disabled).
I was in fact employed by the US Census Bureau as a "follow up"
enumerator, to visit the households where census forms had not been
mailed back.

I live in what is called the San Francisco Bay Area, a conurbation of
some 6.5 million people. I specifically live in Berkeley and, like
almost everyone in the team I was allocated to work in the city of
Oakland, which is well-known for its racial diversity. Principally,
we dealt with African-Americans and Asian neighborhoods. (There were
several teams working there.)

We were given batches of 40 blank forms, both short and long forms.
Forms were "pre-addressed" as to who got the long form. We had to
visit the addresses every time of day until we were successful, ie.,
morning, afternoon and evening.

One problem not highlighted in this thread about modern censuses, is
the problem one has communicating with individuals and/or families
who speak no English. It was quite strange going into a crowded Asian
apartment on several evenings, with parents, grandparents and young
children, probably very recently arrived in America, none of whom
could speak English. I had to try and fill out perhaps 100 questions
(if they got the long form). Somehow, I managed to get them to
understand and get the appropriate answers.

However, there was always a household which wouldn't want to be
involved and so I would report this and it would "move up the chain
of command" for someone else to try.

Finally, as hard as the Bureau tried, not every address was a
residential one. In some cases, a home had been turned into an
office, in other instances, it wasn't obvious that the address was a
store premises.

This is just a taste of how I spent three months during the summer of 2000.

I have a marriage certificate for Hyman ROSENBLATT, 127 Stanton St., age 27,
marrying Mollie GRUSMARK, same address, age 24, on December 9, 1923 in
Manhattan.

Hyman is a presser, >from Podolia, Russia, father Marcus, mother Ryfka
GRATZMAN. Mollie is also >from Podolia, father Morris, mother Rose RUBIN.

Congregation Ansche Obertyn, A.M. Fischel performing ceremony. David Klotz
and Leo Saltzman are the witness.

This is *not* the certificate I was looking for, hence not the family I'm
seeking, which is Hyman Rosenblatt married to Etta/Yetta HARRIS, but if it
*is* of interest to you, contact me privately and I'll email you a copy.

(And if you have a lead on when/where Hyman married Etta, let me know!)

Joshua BARNETT (b.1814/15 - d. 20 Dec 1873) and married (7 May 1844 London)
