Hi
My name is Dorota Kasprus ,I was born in Poland in 74 . I am trying to
complete my genealogy tree . I have never heard that any of my ancesters
are Jewish but I suspect that my mothers family has some Jewish roots.
Only by looking at my grand mother pictures I can easy say that she
wasn't pure German . She was also for her entire live against the Jewish
people and they tradition . Even just without reason she was so anxious
whenever we have watched some programs on the TV about holocaust or so ...

She was born in Germany in Disburg in 1910 ,her maid surname was KAMIN ,
after the 2nd war she get marriage to German/ Polish man ,my grand father
and changed her surname to Leitgeber ,they were moved to Gdansk .

I also know that her familly came >from Polish town Kornik ,close to Pozen,
German part of the Poland before 1st WW . They surname ,my grand ,grandmother
was KICKI
. I am not really sure where to start my research . Please help me to find
my past . I am going to ask my mother for some more details but I might need
some help to get a bit deeper that just 3 generations ,I guess we might
find the truth in the past .

Issue #128 of Genealo-J has just been published #germany

Georges Graner <georges.graner@...>
 

Genealo-J, /publication of the Jewish Genealogical Society of France,
Issue 128, Winter 2016 - [contains 2 articles with possible German connections]

Browsing through the archives of the undertakers' company Schneeberg,
Anne-Marie Fribourg was intrigued by the announcement of the death of
Charlotte Moyse (1815-1901), successively widow of Emmanuel Dreyfus and
Isaie Alexandre. This death was accompanied by several eulogies in
newspapers, quoting her as a famous organist and harmonium player.
Fribourg was able not only to find Charlotte's ancestry, mainly >from
Alsace (Reichshoffen and Hellimer) but also to follow her brilliant
career through innumerable press excerpts during 60 years She began by
playing and teaching piano but soon specialized in the harmonium and in
an instrument called /melodium/ produced by the Alexandre factory, not
related to her second husband. She also wrote several compositions for
piano, organ or harmonium. Fribourg studied also the lives of her two
husbands, both of Alsatian origin. Isaie Alexandre was the inventor and
maker of metallic pens who were very popular and replaced goose quills.
The famous writer Alexandre Dumas was enthousiastic about them and
Rossini was unable to compose his famous mass until he was given these
excellent pens.

Avraham Malthete found the /mohelbuch/ (register of circumcisions) of
Aron Levy, who was cantor in Epinal (Vosges) and /mohel/ between 1844
and 1863. He was born in Bischheim (Alsace) in 1806 and died in Epinal
in 1864. The texts of the /mohelbuch/ are in German but written in
ashkenaze hebrew cursive. It lists 184 circumcisions giving all the
details on the child and his family. Boys concerned come >from 26
different villages and cities, mainly pertaining to the Vosges
department : 48 >from Epinal, 54 >from Remiremont, 13 >from Le Thillot, 9
from Rambervilliers. The paper provides the detailed list of all 184
circumcisions. Among them, one can find David Emile Durkheim
(1858-1917), founder of modern sociology.

(US) Southern Claims Commission Records--Civil War #usa

Jan Meisels Allen
 

For those researching their Civil War ancestors the US Southern Claims
Commission (SCC) Records may be of interest. The SCC was established March
3, 1871 to settle the claims of Union loyalist Southerners during the Civil
War. The SCC was to consider the validity and justice of claims for stores
and supplies taken during the Civil War for use of the Army and Navy.

There were over 22,000 claims filed with the SCC between March 1871 and
March 1880 for property losses exceeding $60 million. About 32 percent of
the claims were approved. As the claimant had to provide testimony about
their loyalty to the Union, and prove their losses the information is of
genealogical value.

The states that were covered under the SCC include: Alabama, Arkansas,
Florida, Georgia, Louisiana, Mississippi, North Carolina, South Carolina,
Tennessee, Virginia and West Virginia-which was still part of Virginia
during the Civil War.

The geographical list of claims may be found at: http://tinyurl.com/j8udoy8

if it was allowed, barred or disallowed, in addition to the aforementioned
geographical list see:

New York Public Library is digitizing its collection of New York City
Directories; 1849-1915 are available free through the NYPL Digital
Collections portal. City directories describe New York City and its
history: the names and addresses of its residents, churches,
businesses, schools, police stations, courts, and other government
offices, often with the names of individuals associated with those
institutions; also included are maps, illustrations of buildings, and
advertisements.

Go to https://digitalcollections.nypl.org/collections/new-york-city-directories#/?tab=about
and select a directory.
[MOD. NOTE: shortened URL - https://goo.gl/nhct22 ]

To browse the directory like a book, click the "View as Book" icon
which is under the open book image. Click each page or jump by opening
the drop down "Jump to" menu and clicking the page you want, or by
dragging the pointer at the bottom of the page, >from left to right.

Look for the Appendix, at one point renamed the City Register, a
classified listing made up of business card-style advertisements. This
is a useful index for finding the names and addresses of asylums, banks,
churches and burial grounds, courts, foreign consuls, hotels,
newspapers, police stations, post offices, schools
