vital registers for Cesky Krumlov #austria-czech

morav@...
 

Hi, I just learned >from holocaust.cz that one of my ancestors Anna
Fischlmann, was born in Cesky Krumlov in November of 1900. I searched
badatelna.eu, and checked out Alex Calzareth's map of ledgers at
http://www.calzareth.com/czechmap/, but could find no matriky books
for any community anywhere near Cesky Krumlov. I tried looking in the
births for Ceske Budejovice, which seems to be the nearest place with
ledgers, but no luck.

Was there really no Jewish community in or near Cesky Krumlov? Is
that possible? Maybe the ledgers were lost/destroyed. Any ideas?

P.S. regarding Anna Fischlmann #austria-czech

A complicating issue is that Anna seems to have been born
illegitimately. Her mother's name was Wilhelmina.

She was adopted by my great great uncle Josef Beck and his wife Kamilla.

Re: Is there a Partoza, Austria? #austria-czech

Errors are common on naturalization documents -- often because
immigrants remembered details incorrectly or were misunderstood by the
immigration clerks who recorded the information.

Searching the New York City death index* on Family Search
(https://www.familysearch.org/search/collection/2240477), I found this
couple buried together at NYC's Mount Zion Cemetery
(http://www.mountzioncemetery.com/search.asp?type=interment):

Samuel Applebaum (born c.1866 Austria, died 1938 Bronx)
Clara Applebaum nee Wechsler (born c.1865 Austria, died 1919 Manhattan)

The birth years are a good match to those on Samuel's Petition for
Naturalization, so I'm hoping they're the right people. They are
buried on the grounds of the Independent Buczaczer KUV, a
landsmanshaft (hometown society) formed by Jewish immigrants from
Buczacz -- now Buchach, Ukraine. Before World War I, that town was in
Galicia, a crown land (like a province) of the vast Austro-Hungarian
Empire. Burial in that society's section doesn't guarantee that one or
both of the Applebaums were >from Buczacz or vicinity, but there's a
good chance. In fact, several databases (the JewishGen Family Finder,
the Ellis Island database, JRI-Poland) include quite a few Wechslers
(Clara's maiden name) >from the town.

For more information on Buchach, see these JewishGen pages:

https://kehilalinks.jewishgen.org/suchostaw/sl_buczacz.htm
https://www.jewishgen.org/Communities/community.php?usbgn=-1036442

and this new book by Omer Bartov, a professor at Brown University:

"Anatomy of a Genocide: The Life and Death of a Town Called Buczacz."

I could find no town with a name resembling "Partoza" in Gesher
Galicia's Galician Town Locator
(https://www.geshergalicia.org/galician-town-locator/) or in the
JewishGen Gazetteer
(https://www.jewishgen.org/Communities/LocTown.asp).

* Please note that Family Search's death index includes many more
details than the indexes on ItalianGen and Ancestry.

Feldwebel #austria-czech

rickglaser@...
 

My grandfather, Richard Glaser, was a Feldwebel in the Austrian Hungarian army in World War 1.

My understanding is that a Feldwebel is similar to a sergeant or a staff sergeant - in other
words, a non-commissioned officer.

In one of the postcards that he sent home to my grandmother, >from the army, he says that his
"boy" was captured by the Russians, and his orderly was injured.

Was it typical for a sergeant to have an orderly and/or a "boy"? I would have thought that this
would be a privilege of a regular officer.


Thanks,

For those who read German, let me add an extraordinary diary (not
memoir) written by a 13 year old girl:
"Mein Theresienstaedter Tagebuch 1943-1944" By Helga Pollak Kinsky.

I am working with the author and her German publisher to bring this
book to an English-speaking audience.

Helga Kinsky's diary was also a key source for this book/educational project:
"The Girls of Room 28: Friendship, Hope, and Survival in
Theresienstadt" by Hannelore Brenner.

Finding Bekescsaba marriage record and Hajduhadhaz birth records #hungary

david@...
 

I am very frustrated because a record is --- seemingly --- barely beyond
my reach by just 14 weeks.

I am trying to find the marriage in Bekescsaba on 4/14/1946 of my uncle
and aunt. Familysearch ends marriages on 12/31/1945. The actual document
would confirm birth info for my aunt in Hajduhadhaz

Not sure if this is an absolute block or if there might be a way around
this. Will familysearch be uploading more records in the future?

I have a similar problem in Hajduhadhaz. I know my aunt's sister was
supposed to have been born in Hajduhadhaz in 1928, so I suspect my
aunt's marriage record would show birth in that town as well (although I
do knot know year nor am I certain of the town as the birthplace --- I
only assume). But Hajduhadhaz birth records end in 1921.

So I am blocked no matter where I turn.

Any advice?

Thanks.

OK to send passport number to Ukrainian authorities? #general

robert sternbach <robertasternbach@...>
 

Hello to all,

I sent an email to the Central State Historical Archives of Ukraine in Lviv, asking
for records concerning my family in Drohobicz and Dobromil. They sent
back a form for me to complete, which asks for my passport number.

I sent an email to the U.S. State Department asking whether it is safe to provide
your passport number in these circumstances, but the response was not helpful. All
it said was "It would be up to your discretion if you feel comfortable enough
giving out that information."

Does anyone have any knowledge/experience whether it is safe to
provide your passport number to the Ukrainian authorities?

Thank you for your response.
