In terms of the conscription question, what I can add to this is that the
oldest male child was exempt >from conscription. I have two examples of
this in my family history.

On one side of the family, my grandfather used his older brother's
passport to flee to the US to avoid conscription. In another example,
a son born to my great-grandparents had the birth listed as being born
to another family in the town, using that family's last name, since they
had no male children. I understand >from a story of his life, written
by a grandson many years later about that happening. Even years
later, it was hard to put the pieces of that together, except that
descendents of the son with a different last name knew the story,
and the families were reunited almost 100 years later.

Dear Group -

Following up on this issue, I was recently given a scan of a

Some little nazi functionary must have gone through the
archives. The entry is stamped with an official stamp dated
June 1939, to the effect that Israel-Sara are now officially
added to the names contained therein.

One wouldn't think they'd bother! But they did!

Bessarabian directories now searchable #bessarabia

Yefim Kogan
 

Hi everybody,

I would to comment on the online material >from Seven Bessarabian Directories
at http://genealogyindexer.org

Bessarabia Gubernia Address-Calendars for 1902, 1906 (partial), 1909, 1910,
and 1913; Chishinau and Bessarabia Directory for 1924 (Anuarul Orasului
Chisinau si al judetelelor din Basarabia si cu Calendarul); and Chisinau
Directory for 1940 (Anuarul Chisinaului).

It is a very good way to find some trace of your relatives, and I thing
Logan is doing a great service to all of us. In order to take advantage of
Logan's work you would need to have some Russian background or Romanian. I
wish we have more of such directories, especially PHONE directories from
Kishinev and other towns.

In a mean time I want to let you know that at Bessarabia SIG there is a
project to RESEARCH and translate Bessarabia Guberniya Address-Calendars.
That is a very different project, and a person who is working on it - Yuriy
Daylis - have uploaded to Bessarabia SIG a lot of material including
statistical tables, list of Jews involved in public life of Bessarabia. You
can get to this table at Bessarabia SIG / Research projects / 30. Bessarabia
Annual books, 1862-1914. 5 Books/calendars are already researched. A
Russian speaking person spend good amount of time to find out correct
translation of professions/departments. That was in fact a great research
work, because many of the terms >from 19 century even Russian speakers cannot
understand. Please check this tables out! They have great material in
them. By the way Rabbis were also considered as people involved in Public
life...

Also a group of people are working now on Chisinau Directory for 1940
(Anuarul Chisinaului), project leader Harvey Kabaker. That will be done
soon and the data will be uploaded to the JewishGen, Business directory.
You will find the list of people with profession, type of business, by
towns.

If any of you are interested in details or want to help in any of these two
projects, please email me at yefimk@verison.net.

I believe the town you're looking for is Siret, which is in
northeastern Suceava County in northeastern Romania, right next to the
border with Ukraine. It is 23 miles NNW of the town of Suceava. It was
formerly in Bukovina province, and you can see it as "Sereth" on this
1910 ethnographic map of Bukovina:

List Camp Varembe 1942 transcribed and also on ViewMate #germany

Bert de Jong <bdejong67@...>
 

After 14 years of researching the BERMANN family, and finding descendants
all over the world ( partly thanks to Facebook) There are always a few
people you can't find a trace of. But sometimes one leads to the other.

I was looking for Ernestine and found out that she survived Theresienstadt and
was brought to St. Gallen in Switzerland in 1945. I did see that there was
a file of her in the archive in Bern, and I wrote to them. They mailed me
back and told me that they had also a file for Paul BERMANN, a man I also
could not trace. Anyway they sent me about 120 pages with personal
information, among these pages are a few lists with names I would like to
share.

The first list is a short list >from the Swiss army, and contains 10 persons
who were brought to refugee camp de Varembe in September 1942.

Surname, name, date of birth, Nationality

ACKERMANN, Kurt, April 4, 1919 German
ACKERMANN, Hans, August 3, 1916 German
JAKUBOWITSCH, Maurice, January 21, 1907 Stateless
JAKUBOWITSCH, Maria, July 24, 1901 Stateless
SCHAFFER, Abraham, September 25, 1886 Polish
HILSEMRATH, Jozoa, November 25, 1890 Polish
HILSEMRATH, Jda, January 14, 1906 Polish
GRUNEBAUM, Kurth, May 7, 1910 German
BERMANN, Paul, August 20, Belgium
PODHORTZ, Samuel, December 22, 1890 Polish

The list can be seen at
http://www.jewishgen.org/ViewMate/responselist.asp?key=32860

I also have a list of people illegaly passing the Swiss border in August
1945 which I also will upload to Viewmate. As soon as they are online, I
will send the list of names via the Gersig Email Forum.

Hi All,

I have two new viewmate posts, both in old German script. For the
first one I only need two words translated that I can't decipher. They
deal with a housing document >from 1818 and should explain how the man
came to own his property.

See: http://www.jewishgen.org/viewmate/viewmateview.asp?key=VM32918


The other post is a continuation of my attempt to decipher the 1744
Mattersdorf census. I looking to see if my loose summary is correct
and if I missed anything important like the occupation of the head of
household.
