A Pole in German POW camp Stalag II-A #general

Peter Lebensold <peterlebensold@...>
 

Thanks to Peter Lande's reference - just over a week ago (see below) - to
the Polish Holocaust database at http://straty.pl , I have just discovered
that there was apparently a (previously-unknown) Josef LEBENSOLD interned
in the prisoner-of-war camp Stalag II-A (at Neubrandenburg, Germany).

Considering that this was - apparently - not an extermination camp, I am
hopeful that there was enough record-keeping that I might be able to get
additional information on this prisoner: date of birth, parents' names,
ultimate fate, etc.

I'd also be curious to know what a Pole might be doing at a POW camp
(Wikipedia says there were 738 Poles at Stalag II-A). Perhaps he was
serving in the Free Polish forces?

Any possible sources for further information would be much appreciated.

From: "Lande" <pdlande@starpower.net>

In the past one of the most useful Polish Holocaust databases has been Karta
Poland. This database has now been subsumed in straty.pl, a much broader
database accessible at http://straty.pl This provides information relating
to an estimated 3.5 million Poles, not only Holocaust victims, but also
soldiers, POWs, forced laborers and others. Simply go to http://straty.pl
and then Szukaj w bazie for your search.

Re: Concentration Camp Gross Rosen #general

Elizabeth Erlich
 

Hello everyone,

Regarding the inquiry about the Gross Rosen concentration camp, I
strongly recommend "A narrow bridge to life : Jewish forced labor and
survival in the Gross-Rosen camp system, 1940-1945" written by Bella
Gutterman and published in 2008 by Berghahn Books in New York (ISBN
9781845452063). This book contains a description and history of the
camp and its subcamps, as well as statistics, photographs, and an
extensive bibliography.

Thank you.
Elizabeth Erlich

Re: US][NY]State Surrogate Court Order Restricts Public Access #general

Jan Meisels Allen
 

On March 11 Don Solomon replied on this forum to my March 5 posting
regarding the New York State Chief Surrogate Court Justice issuing an order
restricting public access to records included in probate files. Don stated,
"I think the genealogical impact of this proposal may be less urgent than it
may seem. The proposal appears to be tailored to a specific group of court
files - those involving guardians and custodians, mostly pertaining to
mentally disabled persons. As I read it, the proposal does not apply to
files involving probate of decedents' estates, which are of much more
interest to genealogists."

I shared Don's comments with a professional genealogist who also serves on
the Records Preservation and Access Committee along with me, as he is
talking with the Court in New York State to get answers to a number of
genealogists' questions regarding on how to access the types of documents
that are specifically restricted in the order. He has advised me that to
the best of our current knowledge 'all' files in the Surrogates Courts
throughout NY State fall under the new restrictions not just guardianships
and similar files such as conservatorships.

While genealogists use the term "probate" in New York State that only refers
to estates with valid wills I have been advised that New York State
Surrogates Court includes probate and administration and guardianship. A
guardianship would not include a death certificate - it would be exceptionally
rare for that to happen, nor include a list of firearms, yet these items are
included on the list of restricted files along with articles 17 and 17A
which are involving guardians and custodians, guardians of mentally retarded
and developmentally disabled persons.

As I learn of answers to the questions posed by the professional genealogist
to the Court, I will share them on this listserve.
