ZAWADZKI and MASZLANKA #general

Esther Goldberg
 

Hi Jenners
I have been researching ZAWADZKI [paternal] who originated >from
Pajenczno. The earliest called Dawid Zawadzki b abt 1760s, he changed
his name >from either Moskowitz about early 1800s. The Zawadzkis' moved
around to Lodz, Pabiance, Czenstochowa and onwards to England, USA, and
Sth America.
MASZLANKA [maternal] Issac Josef Maszlanka b abt 1856 in Lodz. The
family ran wholesale material wearhouses. The daughters married men
from Lynchetsz [BLUM] Russak >from Zgierz [RUBINSZTAJN] >from Konin
[RUSSAK] and WOLRAUCH >from unknown parts.
Is anybody else researching these families especially my maternal
family as I have only been able to go back to Issac's wife Shano Esther
ROSENTHAL father Rabbi Rudolph Rosenthal b. abt.1828 in Panachev m. to
Bertha BECKER and I think maybe his mother was Dora KOBER b. abt 1808.
Any information would be great

Klaipeda - Memel - Internal Passport Records #general

Howard Margol
 

The first group of Klaipeda (formerly Memel) internal passport records
have been translated. It consists of only 28 records but they do include
some very important information. Many more records remain to be translated.

The Klaipeda Internal Passports include the I.P.'s issued >from 1917-1940.
In 1919, Memel and the Memel region were cut off >from Germany. In
accordance with the Versailles Treaty, the Allies ruled this area with a
unit of the French Army headed by a French general.

On January 10, 1923 the Lithuanian army entered Memel and its region, and
replaced the French Army. On February 16, 1923 the Allies approved
Lithuanian's sovereignty over Memel and the region. Lithuania ruled the
Memel region >from 1923-1939.

In December 1938, during elections to the local Parliament, the local
German Nazis received 26 out of 29 seats, as a result of which the city
became in fact a part of the German Reich. On the 22nd of March 1939 the German
army entered Memel and the city and region were officially annexed to
Germany.

The Jewish files appear to be >from the late 1920's to the middle of the
1930's. It is clear that people needed documents under whatever power they
have been living, but what were the differences between the IP of
1919-1923 and 1923-1939 I'm not sure of at this time. Perhaps in the documents of
the period 1919-1923 Lithuanian language was not used in the documents. I do
know that most of the documents are written in German.

Also you'll observe that there are many "Second Internal Passport
Applications". Klaipeda region was under specific regulation during the
inter war period and issued their own internal passports, people who came >from
other parts of Lithuania and already had a valid Internal Passport, had to apply
for a new one.

To receive the Memel - Klaipeda internal passports that have been
translated, as well as those that will be translated in the future, please
make a contribution of $100. Go to

Request German translation of Nadworna vital records #general

Carrielynn Apgar
 

Dear Fellow Genners,

I would like to request your help is translating three vital records from
the town of Nadworna, Poland. First record is birth record of Moses
Halsband. I have done a loose translation of the record headings which are
in Latin, but am unable to read the record information, including
occupation. Second record is birth record of Zirel Halsband, daughter of
Aron Halsband. Text appears to be in German with German headings but I am
unable to read the record entry. Third entry is death record of Aron
Halsband (bottom of page). Need help with record entry.

Files are posted on Viewmate. Please provide a loose translation and contact
me with any questions. Your help is much appreciated.

Help with German abbreviations #germany

Judith Berlowitz <jberlowitz331@...>
 

Dear GerSIGgers,
I'm searching for members of the PHILIPPSBORN / PHILIPSBORN/ Von
PHILIPSBORN family(-ies?). There are Jewish and non-Jewish (von P.)
branches. Many of the Jewish branch were born in Bentschen, today
Zbaszyn, Poland. I've come across an entry in the Google-book, Zur
Statistik des Koenigl. Joachimsthalischen Gymnasiums by Ernst Bahn,
for Carl Alex (von) PHILIPSBORN, under the heading "1832,Ostern -
Michaelis". There are many abbreviations, which I hope some of you
can spell out for me. Here's the entry:

1. (v.) Philipsborn, Carl Alex. Wilh. Maximilian, 17 J., Schwedt a.
O., Jur. u. Cam.k Wirkl. Geb. Regierungsrat, Ministerialdirektor im
Min. der ausw. Angelegenheiten, Bevolim. z. Bundesrat, Exc.

I'm guessing that this information is about Carl Alex's father but
would love to see it all spelled out.

Re: Obtaining copies of Romanian death records #romania

Beth Long
 

Currently, all Romanian birth/death marriages through 1911 may be
photographed at any Romanian National archive branch. Most Jewish
records of the former Transylvania have already been digitally
photographed and are on DVD, Some are being indexed now by volunteers
(i.e. Maramaros County and the Oradea area).

Jewish burial records are another matter, and they are the property
of the religious community in question and would need to be obtained
from that entity.
