Bonn Matrikell #germany

Eva Lawrence
 

I have gone through the on-line RSA name-taking records for Bezirk Bonn
and made notes about the content of its 52 pages, but have not yet
done a proper transcription. If anyone has a surname >from Bonn which
they are interested in, I can send them a link to the relevant image on
this part of the film. I've also got a jpeg of the place index of the
film, No.007992460, which actually covers the whole of Kreis Bonn.

The individual negatives were separated for scanning, and at least one
image - the one mentioning my great-great grandfather, Asher/Anselm
Ungar - is missing, though both his parents and his older siblings are
there. If anyone else, looking through other images happens to come
across it, please let me know.

Bruno KAHANE & Emmy HAHN #germany

Diana da Costa
 

I applied for a marriage certificate in the UK for Emmy Hahn and received
the certificate of another Emmy HAHN who married Bruno KAHANE on 4th
September 1939 in Birmingham. At the time Bruno was 31 years old and gave
his occupation as a timber merchant and Emmy was 27 years old and worked as
a housekeeper. Bruno's father is stated as Ignaz Kahane and Emmy's father
is stated as Max Hahn. Bruno and Emmy both give their address in Harbourne,
a suburb of Birmingham: 97, Metchley Lane.

As I have no use for this certificate, if anyone would like to acquire it,
please email me with your postal address and I shall send it to you.

Re: Family research in Rezina, Moldova: ROITMAN / SHTIVELBERG #bessarabia

Yefim Kogan
 

Hi everybody, Hi Eli,

I am sending this email to the group, because it may help other researchers
to discover their towns, ancestors.

Here is some clues of how to access records of Rezina and other towns.

Go to JewishGen.org, Login to your account, go to DATABASES / Complete List
of Databases / Romania/Moldova / The JewishGen Romania Database.

You see a place you can search the database. Instead of Surname on the left
upper dropdown choose Town, and put Rezina at the right upper cell. That
will search for ALL records with town Rezina!

Also at the Region: choose Bessarabia, and press Search the JewishGen
Romania Database.

You should see 81 record - people who are also Researching Rezina - that is
very important part! Also 13 databases with town of Rezina. Among them
491 records >from Duma Voters list, 190 records >from Business Directory of
1924, 30 Birth records, 25 Death records, 871 - Revision List records, etc.
etc.

Eli, there are many records of ROITMANs in that search: Marriage records,
Revision Lists, etc.
Also, most likely you will not find any records in Rezina, they are in
Kishinev Archive, and we have many of them.

I hope that helps.
Please let us know if you find your ancestors that way.

All the best,
Yefim Kogan

JOWBR Grows to Over 3.1 Million Records! #danzig #gdansk #germany #poland

Nolan Altman
 

JewishGen is proud to announce its 2017 pre-Conference update to the
JOWBR (JewishGen's Online Worldwide Burial Registry) database. The JOWBR
database can be accessed at www.jewishgen.org/databases/Cemetery/ If you're
a new JOWBR user, we recommend that you visit our screencast page at
www.jewishgen.org/databases/Cemetery/Screencasts/ and take a look at the
first two explanatory screencasts.

This update, adds approximately 80,000 new records and 14,000 new
photos. The database is adding and/or updating 265 cemeteries. This update
brings JOWBR's holdings to 3.13 million records and 535,000 photos from
approximately 7,100 cemeteries / cemetery sections representing 125
countries!

Once again, donors for this update include a mix of individuals, Jewish
genealogical societies, historical societies and museums. We appreciate all
our donor's submissions and the transliteration work done by a faithful
group of JewishGen volunteers.

Significant additions to the database include collections >from Belarus
(courtesy of our new partnership with Chesed El Emet), Moldova (Bessarabia
SIG), additional French and German cemetery sets, and United States new and
updated sets (Veterans Administration records, Home of Eternity Cemetery
(Oakland, CA) United Hebrew Bretheren Cemetery (Richfield, MN), various MA
cemeteries (JGSGB). for a complete listing of all cemeteries in JOWBR,
please see www.jewishgen.org/databases/Cemetery/tree/CemList.htm

I want to particularly thank Eric Feinstein who has been helping me to
find and gain permission to add many non-US records >from Germany, France and
under-represented countries. Eric's group of volunteers includes Sandra
Bennett, Lineke Bos, Malka Chosnek, George Goldschmied, Ann Meddin Hellman,
Maurice Kessler, Harriet Mayer, Hans Nord, Deborah Ross, Marylin Shalks, and
Suzanne Tarica. In addition, a big thank you to our volunteer
transliterators, led by Gilberto Jugend, without whom we would not be able
to add the information >from some very difficult to read photos.

We appreciate all the work our donors have done and encourage you to
make additional submissions. Whether you work on a cemetery / cemetery
section individually or consider a group project for your local Society,
temple or other group, it's your submissions that help grow the JOWBR
database and make it possible for researchers and family members to find
answers they otherwise might not. Please also consider other organizations
you may be affiliated with that may already have done cemetery indexing that
would consider having their records included in the JOWBR database.

JewishGen is proud to announce its 2017 pre-Conference update for the
Memorial Plaques Database (MPD). The MPD database can be accessed at

data >from plaques and Yizkor lists >from synagogue and other organizations.
Many of these sources include patronymic information.

This update added approximately 21,000 records and 20,000 photos >from 22
synagogues in the United States and Canada. This update brings the Memorial
Plaques holdings to 157,000 records and 115,000 photos >from approximately
250 synagogues / institutions representing 9 countries.

We believe that the MPD is a good example of how users of JewishGen's
databases can "give back". If you are a member of a synagogue or other
organization with memorial plaques or Yizkor lists, please consider helping
us to grow this database. You can find more information on submitting data
