Wer einmal war, Georg Gaugusch #austria-czech

Traude Triebel
 

We have waited five years, with bated breath, for this to happen. And
finally, it's ready: on 24 November 2016, Volume II of Georg Gaugusch's
monumental work, Those Who Once Were. Vienna's Upper Class Jewish Society
1800-1938 (Wer einmal war. Das juedische Grossburgertum Wiens 1800-1938)
will be presented.
We first put together the Index of Names comprising far more than 34,000
documented personal identifications which we provide to you here
exclusively. In addition, all town names have also been included and
properly assigned. In pop-up information fields (for family name, first
name, page and town) all the indicated data can be viewed at a glance or
scrolled through, thus providing not only the advantage of gaining a quicker
and more comprehensive overview of the whole mass of data, but also helping
to avoid empty searches which bring up no results

Hello
I am looking for information about the town Ternitz, Austria.
Which documents can be found there >from 1850 to 1950?
What is a Jewish cemetery near there? Where the Ternitz's Jews were buried ?

Thank you

GenTeam new search feature #austria-czech

E. Randol Schoenberg
 

A great development on GenTeam.at. You can now search for parents in
birth records. This means you can finally find families where you match
the mother's maiden name. For example, searching in Index of
the Jewish Records of Vienna and Lower Austria for the last name ZEISL
and clicking the box for "Search of Last Name/First Name of
Father/Mother" I get births of kids with last name BAUER,
FELDBAUER, HUEBSCH and METZKER. All have mothers named ZEISL.

(US-RI) Re: RI James Arnold Collection Providence RI #general

Jan Meisels Allen
 

Rick Hyman replied to my posting of the James Arnold Collection at the
Providence RI Library. The newspaper article that was cited never said the
collection was digitized. I called the library and they advised at this time
there are no plans to digitize-they are completing another digitization
project but have not yet decided what project will be next-whether it be the
Arnold collection or another of their collections. To use their Arnold
collection one would have to physically visit the library.

KOHN, FRIEDLER and HASTERLIK #general

Robyn Dryen
 

I would like to make contact with anyone who is researching the inter-connected
families KOHN, FRIEDLER and HASTERLIK originally >from the towns of Kasejovice,
Nepomuk, and Karlovy Vary in the Czech Republic.

At least part of these families moved to Prague, some perhaps to Vienna.
The HASTERLIK family may have adopted the surname ORENSTIEL in the early 1800s.

Thanks for any assistance

Burial plaque inscription #general

Rose
 

Dear Genners

I'm currently working in conjunction with The National Trust of Western
Australia on a project to replace a 19th century burial plaque at the East
Perth Jewish Memorial cemetery.

One of the names inscribed on the plaque is for the late Louis de STERKE who
died in 1898. I would greatly appreciate it if someone could advise us if
the surname should be inscribed as "DE STERKE" or "de STERKE?"

Thanking you in advance.

Best wishes

(Germany) German National Library Decides to Put BackOnline the Digitized Exile Press #general

Jan Meisels Allen
 

Sylvia Asmus, German National Library (Deutsche Nationalbibliothek), Head of
German Exilearchiv 1933 -1945 sent an email to interested parties informing the
public that the Library decided to put the digitized Exile press (Exilpresse)
back online. This is very important to German-Jewish family researchers for
including such publications as the Aufbau, the journal for German-speaking Jews
around the globe.

The purpose of the project of the German exile archive, The Deutsche Exilarchiv
1933-1945 of the Deutsche National Library, was to digitize selected exile
newspapers and exile magazines >from its own collection, supplemented by the
collections of the Exile Literature 1933-1945 collection of the Deutsche National
Library in Leipzig and other libraries.

This is a summary of the notice. The email does not appear to be on the Library
website as of this posting. Thank you to Yvonne Stern, Brazil, for informing us of
the notice and for aiding in the translation >from German into English.

The Library has been considering this over the past several years reviewing the
pros and cons of the decision. They are involved in the network project, Arts in
Exile www.kuenste-im-exil.de and are working on a permanent exhibition of the
German exilkarchiv 1933-1945. At the same time they are concerned with copyrights.

Much of the notice involved discussion of copyrights and developments that have
occurred regarding The European Directive on orphan works that is now national
law and further regulation adopted by the German legislature on the use of
out-of-print works at that time in 13d ff., Copyright Act, since June 1, 2016, in
51f Revaluation Societies Act .

As of 1 December 2016, the holdings can be accessed via the portal of the German
National Library (www.dnb.de). Should copyrights be infringed, we ask
the rights holders to notify us accordingly.
