Thank you Jenny! I had no idea this was available. I see lots of
names, but don't know what I'm looking at. I have Google set to
translate it, but it doesn't seem to be translating the individual
citations. How do you know what type of notice you're looking at?
This is very exciting - I hope to be able to find lots of ancestors
here.

Re: Posen City Registration Cards--they're up through R! #general

Roger Lustig
 

Dear Andre:

I don't think this is the case. I just found a card that recorded the
names of a family with 6 children, all born before 1870 (the stated date
when the card catalog began). The card said that the parents lived in
one place >from 1855 until 1881. The original enumeration of the family
and the mention of their residence since 1855 are in one hand; all
others-->from 1877 to 1925--are in different handwriting, which means
that the card was created at least 4 years before that move.

Residence registration was nothing new in 1870, and I suspect that the
family's information was transferred >from a book to a card around that time.

Re: Searching: EHRLICH, KESLER, SHERMAN, COHEN, NEWMAN, HAUS #general

Roger Lustig
 

Dear Scott:

Perhaps your great-grandfather did correspond with Paul EHRLICH. But I
very much doubt that they were cousins.

Paul EHRLICH did not come >from Russia. He was born in Strehlen in the
Prussian province of Silesia, in 1854. The town is now called Strzelno;
Silesia is now the southwestern part of Poland. Paul's father Ismar
EHRLICH also came >from there, and Ismar's father Heymann EHRLICH came
from Oppeln (now Opole), the provincial capital of Upper Silesia. Both
father and grandfather were distillers.

Paul's mother was Rosa WEIGERT, >from Rosenberg (Olesno) in Upper
Silesia. Her brother Eduard Salomon had a son named Karl. Karl WEIGERT
contributed much to medical science, and is considered to be a founder
of histology--the study of bodily tissues. He inspired his younger
cousin, whose innovations in pathology and chemical treatment of disease
are well-known.

Why do I know so much about this? Because I'm not related to Paul
EHRLICH either. My father, who came >from Upper Silesia, had a
great-grandmother named Pauline EHRLICH. One of his genealogical quests
was a connection to Paul EHRLICH's family; but he found none, and I
haven't either--having looked through most of the surviving Jewish vital
records >from the region. Our EHRLICH family has some interesting members
too, including a Nobel laureate--something my dad never knew--just not
*that* one.

Most Jews didn't have surnames before about 1800. EHRLICH--meaning
"honest"--was a common choice when Jews were required to adopt a
surname. Jews in all parts of central and eastern Europe chose it. The
JewishGen Family Finder lists 160 researchers working on that name in
all regions, which should tell you that a) you have plenty of people to
work with, and b) you're probably not related to most of them.

Researching violinist Hermann KAPLAN #general

Dear Genners,

I am looking for information about the Latvian-born violinist Hermann
(Hirsch) KAPLAN (Riga, May 6, 1888-New York, October 1963)?
I know he lived in Vienna (Lindengasse 37) >from 1912 till 1937, moved to
the US and became a violin professor at a music college. Apparently
(Social Security Death Ind.) he died in New York City.
I would be very grateful for any help.
