For many years, the late Michael Rademacher's site,
verwaltungsgeschichte.de, has provided excellent historical gazetteer
information for the former German Reich. Michael's family kept this
popular site up for years, but now it's gone blank.

Not to worry--nothing in cyberspace is ever really lost.

New project: East German Gatermann films #germany

Roger Lustig
 

Dear All,

It's been too long since this group undertook a new project, and I, as
your research coordinator, apologize for that. Here is the first of
several projects that you're invited to take part in.

https://tinyurl.com/GatermannEast is a spreadsheet listing the contents
of the East German Gatermann films. These films display Jewish vital
records and similar documents. The originals are lost, so in most cases
these films are all we have left.

They cover Jewish communities >from the territory of the former German
Democratic Republic (except for Berlin). Over 100 localities are
represented, >from Annaberg to Zerbst. Many of these communities were
very small; others, such as Dresden, had a Jewish population that peaked
above 5,000.

About 60% of these records are available to anyone via familysearch.org.
Just go to the catalog and enter the film number. When you get to the
page that describes your records of interest, scroll down and then click
on the camera icon to view the records directly.

The ones that are not available for home viewing are shaded grey in the
spreadsheet. Their availability depends on the age and type of the
youngest records on them. If they are not freely available under German
privacy laws, you have to look at the microfilms the old-fashioned way.
Alas, one protected record takes the whole reel of film out of distribution.

Please email me at this address if you're interested in indexing one or
more localities. Some of the contents of these files are very easy to
read; others, nearly impossible. Since each case is different, we'll
have to develop a strategy for dealing with each one.

Those of you who don't read German (or old German handwriting) can be of
great assistance too. As with the Hessen Gatermann project, participants
can contribute by setting up the entry framework: item numbers, page
numbers, etc.

Thanks in advance to all of you!

INTRO- Researching the SPRUNG family from Leipzig, Germany and Brody, Poland #germany

Peter Sprung <psprung@...>
 

Dear GerSig,

I just joined this group. I've been doing genealogy research for only
a few months, and consider myself a beginner. I live in Washington,
D.C. and my native language is English. I'm a first generation American.
I'm an intermediate in using a computer. I have extensive experience
in using the internet.

I've conducted research on the website of Yad Vashem, the "Memorial
Book of the Victims of Persecution of Jews under the National
Socialist Tyranny," and several other sources.

For certain of my great-grandparents, grandparents, great aunts and
uncles, aunts and uncles, and second cousins, I've identified familial
relationships, birth dates and locations, death dates and locations,
of dates and locations of deportation and incarceration, etc.

Insofar as most of these persons were murdered in the Holocaust, I
know comparatively little about them or their histories. Accordingly,
my primary research goals are to:

(1) identify biographical information and any other information about
the individuals listed below, as well as other family members; (2)
connect with individuals who may have already collected information
about these individuals or other family members, or receive direction
to others who who may have collected such information; (3) identify
investigative leads or sources of information with which I can conduct
additional research; and (4) identify the names, biographical
information, and any other information about any other relatives of
the individuals listed below.

Awesome info, Yefim! Thanks very much. Now I just need to learn Russian (smile)

It doesn't look like I will be able to attend the conference. My 16-year-old pup needs too much
care for me to be away so long. But you and my fellow genealogists will be in my heart and prayers.

Hugs,

This week's Yizkor book excerpt on the JewishGen Facebook page #general

Bruce Drake <BDrake@...>
 

This week's excerpt >from the Yizkor book for Voronovo, Belarus, about 40
miles due south of Vilnius, is one window on the thoughts, shock, emotions
and fears that ran through the minds of Jews as the horror of the Nazi
occupation closed in on them. In this account of three days in May 1942,
the immediate danger was not the Nazis themselves. "We look at who comes
to kill us," writes Keileh Grodzenchik, describing what those crowded in
his parents' house woke up one day to see. "They are not strangers: they
are the Poles-- your close neighbors-- your acquaintances. There is
Eyseltchok, there is Bibik, Burshu and others that you went to school with
and with whom you built a friendship, and here they are... We are shut in,
enclosed, surrounded by Polish predatory beasts and by German soldiers."

occupation closed in on them. In this account of three days in May 1942,
the immediate danger was not the Nazis themselves. "We look at who comes
to kill us," writes Keileh Grodzenchik, describing what those crowded in
his parents' house woke up one day to see. "They are not strangers: they
are the Poles-- your close neighbors-- your acquaintances. There is
Eyseltchok, there is Bibik, Burshu and others that you went to school with
and with whom you built a friendship, and here they are... We are shut in,
enclosed, surrounded by Polish predatory beasts and by German soldiers."

Re: Travel Book for Jewish Lublin and Surroundings #general

Carol Rombro Rider points out Andrzej Trzcinski's 1991 wonderful Lublin
guidebook. I still own my copy of the book >from when I visited Lublin
with my mother in 1993 and I had the honor and pleasure of meeting
Professor Trzcinski on Wednesday night this current week at a lecture
we both attended at Brama Grodzka (Grodzka Gate) in Lublin. The book is
no longer in print but remains full of fascinating material. I would
encourage visitors and researchers who have the book to seek information
beyond the book, however. As with any 27-year-old guide book, time has
made significant aspects of the book out of date, and newer research
over the quarter century since then has filled in many of the blanks in
the book. Having said that, I am not aware of a newer volume to fill the
void of time and it would be a valuable, practical contribution if
someone were to update the book. Professor Trzcinski, himself, is busy
with scholarly projects that will soon bear fruit and be of immense
interest to the Lublin-area Jewish genealogical community. His already-
published book (in Polish) on Lublin area tombstones is definitive and
of immense value to genealogists.

I came across a book that was given to me many years ago by a dear
friend, Morris Gordon.

The title is "A Guide to Jewish Lublin and Surroundings" written by
Andrzej Trzcinski. It was published by the "Jewish Information &
Tourist Bureau" in 1991, Warsaw-Lublin.

I do not know if the book is still being published, but you can try
and find it on line. The book is in English and has 80 pages. In
addition to being about Jewish Lublin, the book also discusses
excursions to many of the smaller Jewish towns in the area.

If you have any questions, please ask. Also, since I am not on the
digest for the upcoming conference in Warsaw, feel free to post this to
that list.

Have a wonderful time to all. Go safely and come home safely!
