Does anyone know where to find on the web the detailed Klarsfeld
lists of people deported to Auschwitz? I searched (even on the Jewishgen
site)
and could not find them.
Thank you in advance. Daniel Wagner

Thank You to All Who Responded to My Post About a Baby's Gravestone #general

Stanley and Shelda Sandler
 

Dear Genners,

A huge thank you to everyone who responded to my question about gravestones
of babies and stillborns who were born a hundred years ago. All of you will
receive a personal reply >from me.

It seems >from the replies I received that affordability issues were one
reason why gravestones were not erected over a baby's grave. Other
responses explained that many child stones were made >from softer, less
expensive materials and stood closer to the ground. The child gravestones
apparently did not stand the test of time as adult gravestones do.

There were other responses which indicated that according to rabbinic law,
no funeral or formal mourning period was held for an infant that did not
survive for 30 days.

My thanks and greatest appreciation to all who responded.

As for JewishGen...Where else can you post a question at 7:00 P.M.(ET) one
night and have replies early the next morning!JEWISHGEN IS AWESOME!!!!

Re: Gravestone over a Baby's Grave #general

Ira Leviton
 

Dear Cousins,

Shelda Sandlers asked whether there any reasons why the grave of a baby who
died about 100 years ago would NOT have a gravestone...

My answer is that if a baby did not have a grave marker 100 years ago, most
of the time it was because of expense. When marked, a stillborn baby
or infant that survived only several days, not long enough to be named, might
have a stone that says (generically) "Baby [Surname]," or "Baby Boy/Girl
[Surname]," or "Child of [Father and Mother Surname]," sometimes with a date.

However, according to Jewish religious law followed by everybody at that
time, stillborn babies and those that died within 30 days of birth were not
viable births. There was no funeral, kaddish, shiva, or other mourning,
and if the parents weren't at the cemetery to attend the burial, they may
not have even known the grave location within their society plot unless they
later asked in the cemetery office, so there was often no marker. This is
still the Orthodox religious law. Conservative and Reform law nowadays
is to have funeral services for babies that die any time after birth, and
it's almost universal for even infants to have grave markers, usually
granite like everybody else. I'm not sure about the religious law is for
Conservative and Reform religious law is regarding stillbirths.

Finally, 100 years ago, grave markers for babies were often made of
sandstone or other inferior materials that eroded over time - I have seen
many children's sections, usually located at the back of a landsmanshaft plot,
with small grave markers that are often worn and sometimes completely unreadable,
or broken with just a small base remaining.

Posen City Registration Cards--are up through W #germany

Elkeles <Barbara_Elkeles@...>
 

Dear group,

Images of the residence registration index cards >from the city of
Posen/Poznan contain a lot of information on inhabitants of the city of
Posen in the 19th until early 20th century.
They may give information of three generations of a family.
(see many entries in the Gersig list archive).

The Polish State Archive image web site had gradually uploaded images of the
cards alphabetized A to R.
I just noticed that the images of the letters S to W are uploaded now. W is
not quite complete.
At best follow the link http://tinyurl.com/lymdnck

There is also a register but it is not yet complete and sometimes the links
