Subject Line: INTRO - researching HART family from Posen, Saale, Holzland, Kreis, Thueringen, Germany and BENNETT Margarita A. Hamburg, Germany. #germany

Merry Nessinger <navajo35@...>
 

Hello GerSig,

I just joined the group. I have been doing genealogy research for
thirteen years. I consider myself to be beginner in doing German Jewish
Genealogy research.

I live in Scottsdale, Arizona. United States. My native language is
English and I know no other languages.

I consider myself advanced in using a computer. My experience in using
the Internet is intermediate.

I have identified the name, place of birth, and death date of my
great-grandfather but he is the only person in the HART family (other
than my father) for whom I have this information. I am also looking for
the information on my paternal great-great-grandmother,
great-grandmother and grandmother.

My primary research goals now are to find out: full names, places of
birth, birth and death dates for my great-great- grandparents,
great-grandparents, grandparents and those who preceded them and
Margarita A BENNETT whose date of birth is about 1912 in Hamburg,
Germany and her family.

My JGFF Researcher ID number is 220965.


The family names and ancestral towns that I have entered in the JGFF
(JewishGen Family Finder) are:

HART Morris >from Posen, Saale, Holzland, Kreis, Thueringen, Germany to
New York City.1814 1850
HART Mitchel New York, New York 1851

If you think you might not have ancestors >from Sweden, there have been Jews
in Sweden since the early 1700s. albeit a small population. Sweden opened
its doors to Jews during WWII and again in 1956 when Jews were fleeing
Hungary and then again when fleeing Communists in 1968. According to the
Jewish Virtual Library the Jewish population increased tremendously between
1850 and 1920 due to immigration >from Russia and Poland. The population
reached nearly 6,500 in 1920. Small groups of German, Austrian, and Czech
Jews were allowed to immigrate to Sweden during the 1930's. Once the Nazi
brutalities were known Sweden opened its doors to Jews. In 1942, Sweden
allowed the immigration of 900 Norwegian Jews. In October 1943, Sweden gave
asylum to more than 8,000 Danish Jews, the whole Danish Jewish community,
which came to Sweden via small fishing boats. The Jewish population doubled
between 1945-1970.

Locating where someone was cremated (near Bordeaux), Anice Hall #france

Joyaa Antares
 

Hi All,

I have learnt that a cousin, Anice Hall (nee Zausmer), was cremated in or
near Bordeaux shortly after her death, which is believed to be 11th or 12th
October 1987.
Is there any way to establish in which crematorium she was cremated?
Thanks. Best wishes to all.

Revision Lists #bessarabia

Yefim Kogan
 

Hi everybody,

Our Revision List team has started working on a new set of records for the
Revision Lists. In this new load (in June, 2019) we will have sets of
records for Kishinev, Bendery, Ataki, Faleshty, Izmail, Romanenko colony and
more.

At the beginning of February you will get a table of what records are in
progress.

There is one thing I want to share with you, and possible to get an advice.
I always wanted for each set of records display for you Title page of the
set, as well as Ending pages. The ending pages in many cases have
signatures of some of the members of the community. Today I looked at some
microfilms, we have in many cases a "second" set of the same records. Well,
maybe not exactly the same, that is why I am going thru the records and if
there are differences or missing pages, we will take records >from the
"second" copy. I worked with Ataki set ("second" copy), and found after a
full Revision, there are signatures (in Hebrew/Yiddish) of about 150 people,
probably heads of households, and I believe that this might be of interest
to many of you. I remember how I was happy when found in one of the
Revisions a signature of my great great great grandfather...

The question is, how we going to process these pages? It is not just
translation/transcribing, we need to display the images. I am going to
consult with JewishGen on this, and possible for now, we can have these
signature documents at our Bessarabia SIG database.

Please let me know if you have any questions or suggestions.

Shabbat Shalom,
