big Gothic "J" on them. >from what I could see in the Leo Baeck Institute

the application forms that remained with the local administration also
contained a photograph and all the other data appearing on the card itself.

There was apparently an attempt by the "Institut zur Erforschung der
Judenfrage" (Institute for Research on the Jewish Question) that was
founded by the Nazis in 1942 to assemble all the Jewish application forms from
Germany in this Institute together with many other documents and books.

Since Frankfurt/Main was in the American zone of occupation, all the
ones that were sent there, a few thousands, were taken to the Leo Baeck
Institute after the war in wooden boxes where in the year 2007 there was
an attempt to compile an index of names, >from what I heard, it was

when the owner left Germany (some of the cards were sent back to Mainz
after they were confiscated at the German/Belgian border.)

from what I could see in the printed Gedenkbuch for the Munich Jews,
the Munich city administration must have retained their application
forms because many of the photographs show that they must have been
taken >from these application forms. I assume that in other cities they
would still be in the city archives.

I do not think that the numbers were centrally organized or even
centrally registered. It is worth trying the LBI, just for chance, If
the residence was not Mainz or Munich my advice would be to check with
the local city archives and ask them whether they happen to have them ...

It is still obligatory in Germany and other European countries to carry
such an ID (equal for everybody), now it is called "Personalausweis" and
looks like an American driving license. With kind regards,

New PPA Pricing Information #general

jan meisels allen <janmallen@...>
 

Steve Pickholtz asked about the new pricing for vital records due to PA law. The
Law that became effective January 1 is the Open Records Act which I posted
information to this forum on December 24. The new Open Records Act does NOT include
birth or adoption records. There is a website:
http://openrecords.state.pa.us/portal/server.pt
The Act is also on the website under the tab entitled: "The Right To Know Law".
There are forms for making requests and a list of frequently asked questions. I
would encourage anyone planning on requesting records under the new law to read
the information on the website *before* applying.

In writing to the Senior Attorney for the Open Records Act she stated, essentially
the charges per page ($0.25 maximum) do NOT apply and due to other established law,
birth and adoption records are NOT covered under the new law. "Unless there are
existing statutory limitations marriage, divorce and death records are expected to
be covered under the Open Records Law. Pennsylvania statute provides that the
Advisory Health Board shall proscribe fees for copies of vital statistics (35 P.S.
450.807) so the fee structure established by the Office of Open Records would not
apply. " In further communications, the senior attorney stated to me: "The Right
to Know Act does not control vital statistics records and those laws would have to
be amended to make records more available." (This was in response to questions
about birth and adoption records eventually being covered by the new law.)..

The bottom line: The $0.25 per page **does not** apply to death and marriage
records including the vital records in Philadelphia.

Steve, I would encourage you to read the information on the website to answer your
other questions regarding types of records.

CEMETERIES in S.Africa. Thought I'd let you know, that just because you
don't see your relatives' Grave listed online, does *not* mean that your
relative is not there!

I have often "found" people in cemeteries who were not listed at all, not
in the original cemetery records, not in the computer registers at the
cemetery and not online.

I have, at times, given in names and grave numbers to the people at the
Chevra Kadisha offices for their records.
