Adding further information and a request to my offer quoted below:

This is a digitized document (filmed): PAAA RZ214 099846, List No. 154.
It contains only (only!) 165 people, bringing the total by that date to
17,508 people. Dated 12 April 1940. =20

If you would like me to search for more than three names, please list
them in alphabetical order.

"List member Steven Frank generously volunteered to retrieve the Gestapo
Ausbuergerung files and send them to me. He is fortunately already a
volunteer at the museum.
I have the (quite extensive) files now and am offering to do lookups,
for those of you who think you have family members who were subject to
de-naturalization >from Germany. Please send your requests privately.

1938 film of the Jewish residents of Sennfeld-Adelsheim #general

Rich Samuels
 

Below is a link to film shot by Chicago attorney Max J. Korshak in
May, 1938 showing members of the family of Izaak Neuberger near their
home in Sennfeld-Adelsheim. Max and his wife sponsored the emigration
to the United States of five members of the Neuberger family.

The film also shows some of the participants in the Zionist training
school (hachshara) that operated 1936-1939 on land owned by Izaak
Neuberger and his brother Adolf.

Perhaps there is someone who can help me identify some of these young
people who came >from all over Germany.

Here's the link:

Re: Meaning of name Menachem Mendel #general

Menachem has a biblical origin (Menacheim). Melakhim II, 15:14. He was the
sixteenth king of Israel. Menachem Mendel is a common combination.

entry in the local histories calls the person "Mendal".

Question: Is this the same person? The dates match.
Why would there be different names? Is Menachem an honorary
such as Mister, Doctor, etc.

Petition for Naturalization forms #general

Roberta Berman
 

Were people given a copy of the forms they filled in, in order to become a
citizen?

A friend has her grandfather's Petition for Naturalization filled-in form,
from 1913, complete with folds and scotch taped together.
It says that her grandfather arrived in the U.S. in 1903 and filed a
Declaration of Intent in 1906 in the Circuit Court of the Southern District
of New York.

In the 1915 NY State census it says he was a citizen. No one in the family
has his Certification of Naturalization.

All the best,
