Shalom I'm a newbie and I am struggling with DoroTree and have been
unsuccessful in contacting their support. My specific problem is that I
cannot figure out how to move data >from the index to where I wish to
place it. In other words, when I want to place a person who is in the
place of the father to the place of being a son of his parents the
program wants me to enter his information again and that makes many
duplicates on the index list. I know this can't be right. I also am
trying to correct a mistake where I ended up as a child of an aunt and
uncle. If anyone is familiar with this program and can help me I would
be quite grateful.

1887 Records for Russ/Rusne in Heydekrug/Silute (Lithuania) #general

Graeme Boocock
 

Hello,

I would like to ask where I can find 1887 birth records (or the
address of a local registry office) in what was Russ in Landkreis
Heydekrug and is now Rusne in the Silute district of Lithuania. Do
civil registration records exist for this period?

Thank you,
Graeme.

German Land and Kreis names #general

Hanna Grossman <hannakg@...>
 

Attempting to rationalize place names on my gen. data base I find
"Lower Franconia" which I cannot translate into either a Land or
Kreis and have no idea where it is.

Any help greatly appreciated.

Also I see Westphalia, Nordrhein-Westpfalz, and somewhere Pfalz by
itself. Can you help straighten me out. I am trying to use the
German names, and to the extent I can figure it out the appropriate
historical name of the state.

Cantor Louis LEVY of Berlin #germany

Rodney Eisfelder <eisfelder@...>
 

I would like to find out some more information on Cantor Louis LEVY
(Asher ben Moses), who died in Berlin on 25 January 1853. The Jewish
Encyclopedia has a short article on him:
http://www.jewishencyclopedia.com/view.jsp?artid=330&letter=L

He seems to be the best match that I have found for my 3-greats
grandfather, who was also called Louis (or Luis or Ludwig) LEVY, and
also had the Hebrew name Asher and who died in Berlin before about 1856.

Is there any "natural" connection between the Hebrew name Asher and
the civil name Louis?

The article says Louis was cantor of "the" Berlin synagogue?
How many synagogues would there have been in Berlin in the 1840s and 1850s?

I am fairly certain that my 3-greats-grandfather corresponds to the
Louis LEVY who is entry 1582 on page 314 of the "Judenburgerbucher
der Stadt Berlin" (aged 33 in early 1837 and hence born about 1803 or
4). That Louis Levy also had a father Moses.

Can anyone suggest where I can get enough information on Cantor LEVY
(ie his place of birth and names of his wife or children) to prove
whether or not he was my 3-greats grandfather?

I already have a copy of the Cantor's death record >from an LDS film,
which states he was 50 years old (and hence born about 1802 or 3).
While the films are "challenging" to read, I didn't find a better
match for my ancestor. The only problem is that the two references to
my Louis's occupation that I have say he was a Kaufmann (merchant),
not a Cantor.

Re: SITE CITE Breslau and Berlin dissertations #germany

Jeff Lewy <airbair@...>
 

I am interested in finding relatives that may be in the Breslau
dissertation registers. I appreciated learning that they might be on
Google Books.

What (presumably German) search terms would be used to find these
registers? I tried several guesses but was unable to unearth the registers.

Thank you. Jeff Lewy San Francisco, CA <airbair@gmail.com>

Hanna:

This isn't always easy, but there are some good tools.

For 1871-1945 especially, use
http://www.verwaltungsgeschichte.de/ortsbuch39.html -- select the town
in question and you'll go to the relevant Kreis page, with the hierarchy
of Land, Bezirk, etc. right at the top of the page. Clicking on any of
those will take you to a page that shows the subdivisions of a particular region.

Of course, these things have changed since 1945, so check the town name
in Wikipedia if that's important. (The German Wikipedia is terrific for
this sort of thing, even if your German is minimal. It will always tell
you which Kreis a place is in, and the Kreis will have its own page too.)

Westphalia (Westfalen) is an ancient region of Germany.
Nordrhein-Westfalen is one of modern Germany's states--Westphalia plus
the northern Rhineland. Nothing to do with the Pfalz in either case.

Pfalz (which means "palatinate"--place with a palace) is in the SW of
Germany. Along with the small Saarland region, it's the part directly
north of Lorraine in France. [I think this is the Rhein Pfalz - There is
another Pfalz region in Franken, I'm told. MODERATOR]

Nowadays it's part of the state of Rheinland-Pfalz. Until 1945 it
belonged to Bavaria--the rest of which is nowhere near there. And to
confuse things further, Bavaria also has a region called Oberpfalz,
which was and is in the main portion of Bavaria. To reduce the
confusion (hah!) with the Oberpfalz, the Pfalz was also called the Kurpfalz.

Franconia (Franken in German) is the NW part of Bavaria (Bayern). Lower
Franconia (Unterfranken) is the NW portion of *that*, and includes the
cities of Wuerzburg, Aschaffenburg and Schweinfurt.

The Oberpfalz is directly east of Franconia, for what it's worth.
