Process to obtain a German Passport in 1939 to leave Germany #general

Peter Wollinski
 

Dear fellow researchers,
My father lived in Berlin in 1939. Between 1936 & 1938 he attended the
Jewish agriculture training school at Neuendorf Im Sande. He emigrated
from Germany in August 1939 bound for Australia and was to sponsored
by Australian Jewish Welfare Society.

I have been unable to find a source which details the process that my
father would have had to go through to obtain his German passport. The
passport was issued in July 1939.

In particular: What forms would have been required to be completed;
Where did he have to go to in Berlin to deliver the forms and if
necessary be interviewed; How much would it have cost to obtain his
German Passport?; Where was the British Embassy in Berlin located as
they had placed the Australian Visa into the passport; and Where would
have English pounds been obtained >from to pay for the Australian Visa?

Any assistance will be greatly appreciated.

Regards
Peter Wollinski

Searching for descendants of Eliezer ben Kalman KASZUB (Israel? France - CASSUBE? Other) #france

Joyaa Antares
 

Dear Genners,

I would like to reach any descendants of Eliezer KASZUB, possibly born 1898;
son of Kalman and Nauma (nee KEMPNER) KASZUB.

Eliezer submitted 43 pages of testimony [POTs] to Yad Vashem for friends and
family many years ago, mainly for the KASZUB family of Lodz, Poland; and
possibly some >from Krosniewice, Poland. The submitted pages are in Hebrew,
and I presume Eliezer lived in Israel.

Nauma is a recently "discovered" cousin of my KEMPNER family. Some of the
POTs relate to KEMPNERs, and many to KASZUBs. I don't know exactly how the
French KASZUB branch is related, but I understand that they spell the
surname CASSUBE.

Thank you!

INTRO - Seek guide for a research travel in Germany. Researching Families From Kassel, Lisberg, Bamberg, Nuremberg, Schluechtern, Eppelsheim, Hainsfarth, etc. #germany

William Meyers <bpmeyers@...>
 

Hello: My name is William Meyers II (Bill) and I Just joined the Group.
My wife and I are going to Germany this Spring in mid-May for a
convention in Bremen and, after that, are renting a car to drive south
through Hannover, Kassel, to the Bamberg, Fuerth and Nuremberg areas
ending our trip in Munich.

We plan to stay a couple of days in each area and are interested in
finding someone local who speaks English and might be willing to act
as a guide for us. We would like to see the Jewish areas and old parts
of the towns that existed in the early to mid-1800s when our families
emigrated to come to America, if there is anything remaining or rebuilt.

I'm sorry to say we are Reform Jews and don't speak Hebrew, Yiddish or
German but if we were to visit a cemetery or cemeteries it would be good
if our guide could interpret inscriptions for us, prticularly if they
relate to our families.

I Have been doing genealogy for many years though I'd probably be
considered an intermediate researcher. I have identified the birth
and death dates of all my grandparents, great grandparents and most
of my great, great grandparents including those of my wife's family.

My immediate goal is to add at least one more generation to each line
to the extent possible. I understand this will likely involve accessing
records in Germany or records that have been scanned and brought to the
US or are on line.

Family names and town they left to come to America of interest are:
MEYERS - Lisberg/Bamberg, KIngdom of Bavaria; GOODMAN - Lisberg/Bambrg
LOWENSTEIN - Peckelsheim/Hannover, Niedersachsen; KAHN - Shluechtern,
Grand Duchy of Baden; LEVY - Schluechtern; KUHN - Niederhochstadt,

Hechingen, Baden, Wuerttemberg; WALTER and PLOESCH - Nuremberg, Kingdom
of Bavaria; and LEWIS (LOUIE)(LEVI) - Wuerzburg, Kingdom of Bavaria

We'll appreciate any help that is offered.

A few years ago a kind member sent me photos of tombstones that had
unfortunately grown-over, and I was unable to see any details.

If anyone is visiting there, a photo of each would be appreciated.
Hopefully the growth has now been cut back, or possibly it can be pulled
to one side to facilitate the photos.

Indexing Vitebsk City Duma Lists #belarus

Max Preston
 

Hi all,

I have gathered copies of Vitebsk city duma lists (voter lists) from
1905, 1906, 1907, and 1912. Many of these lists identify the religion
of the individuals named, which makes it possible for us to create a
searchable list of the Jews listed. For the lists that don't identify
religion, I suppose we will just have to create a searchable list of
everyone.

Anyway, with the help of Banai Lynn Feldstein, I am testing out Crowd
Sourced Indexing as a way to get these lists indexed so that they can
be made searchable. As a test-run, I have uploaded a small portion of
the 1907 duma lists. If anyone is able to read Cyrillic (Russian)
characters and is willing to help, please check out this initial,
small project at https://csindexing.com/projectinformation.php?p=356.

Thanks!
