Chodecz Book of Residents #poland

Ken Drabinsky <kenjdgen@...>
 

Dear Members:

On behalf of Jewish Records Indexing - Poland, I am extremely pleased
to announce that we have recently acquired the scans of the original
1885-1931 Chodecz Book of Residents in 5 Volumes >from the Wlocalwek
Archive, including an Index (one volume) providing an alphabetical
listing of residents.

This new acquisition will bring to light much information about
Chodecz families and their connections for many generations.
This is a remarkable surviving source as the town's vital records
apparently did not survive.

Information in the Book of Records, written mostly in Cyrllic Russian
and partly in Polish, includes house numbers, listing of family
members, maiden names, birth dates, towns of origin. In some cases,
additional documents are attached to the book pages.

As coordinator of the translation project, I would be able to answer
any queries but encourage you to submit donations through the
JRI-POLAND website WWW.JRI-POLAND.ORG to expedite the completion of
the project. Qualified contributors will be eligible to obtain an
excel file with all entries and move this project to a quicker
completion. Please contact me for additional information.

Best regards,

Issue 122 of Genealo-J is published #germany

Georges Graner <georges.graner@...>
 

Genealo-J, publication of the Jewish Genealogical Society of France,
Issue 122, Summer 2015 has just been published.

Based on family stories related to his great-grandfather Sigismund
ETTINGHAUSEN (1838-1918), a gem dealer in Paris, Pierre-André Meyer
reconstructs his lineage. Among his offspring he finds personalities as
different as Walter Eytan, a former Israeli ambassador in France, or the
sulfurous writer Maurice Sachs both "born" Ettinghausen. Three Jewish
householders in Frankfurt neighboring town of Hoechst initially adopted
the surname "Ettinghausen" in 1822. These protected Jews (Schutzjuden)
of the Dukes of Nassau before Hoechst was united to Prussia in 1866
fostered three family branches which gradually separated; one chose to
emigrate to Paris where it became part of the Jewish secularized
bourgeoisie, the other two remaining in Germany in a then more open society.
The advent of Nazism led to the extermination of the German
Ettinghausens though some of them managed to emigrate to the United
States. There are no longer any Ettinghausens in Hoechst today but an
Ettinghausen-Platz inaugurated in 2008 recalls the family.

Pamela Weisberger is the active manager of Gesher Galicia, a non-profit
group helping those who look for their Jewish roots in Galicia, a former
province of the Austro-Hungarian Empire. She presents all the
information available and especially the new website www.GesherGalicia.org.

A seal showing a wolf surrounded with the Hebrew name Benjamin son of
Abraham was recently found near Uzes in the South of France. Eliane Roos
Schuhl analyzes this seal which was probably made in the 13th or 14th
century.

New Companion Book about Carl Laemmle [in both English and German] #germany

Irene and Fred <irenefred123@...>
 

Hi All,

Two years ago Udo Bayer wrote a biography about Carl Laemmle titled
"Carl Laemmle und die Universal" with the ISBN of 978-3-8260-5120-3.
The book only comes in a German edition. Laemmle, born in Laupheim
near Ulm, came to the United States as a young man. He was the
founder and president of Universal Studios and had a flourishing
career in Hollywood including producing the film "All Quiet on the
Western Front" that won an Academy Award. More important was his
humanitarian work in which he sponsored and saved the lives of several
hundred people in the 1930s who were able to immigrate to America. He
also tried without success to persuade the anti-Semitic leadership of
the Department of State to increase the quotas and remove the
unconscionable barriers for refugees.

Now Udo Bayer has written a new companion book titled "Carl Laemmle:
Von Laupheim nach Hollywood - >from Laupheim to Hollywood" with the
ISBN of 978-3-95565-083-4. The publisher is Hentrich & Hentrich
Verlaf Berlin. It is a bilingual publication in which the commentary
appears both in German and English and includes many photos, letters,
Hollywood material, etc.

Alternatively, search the JewishGen Germany Database. The Hessen

section that will be on line shortly. Ungedanken's there already.

Joe:
Ungedanken and Fritzlar are both represented in the Hessen Gatermann
collection, and are in the portion of the index that's already part of
the JewishGen Germany database. (The full Phase 1 index should be up
within a few weeks.) Both localities are represented >from ca. 1824 onward.

Alas, Jewish vital registers >from before about 1809 are very few and far
between, and were not kept systematically in most places.

However, quite a few registers >from the Kingdom of Westphalia
(1808-1813) have survived, most of them in the Hessian State Archive in
Marburg. The collection they're in, a church-register miscellany, has
been filmed by LDS, and is on line at familysearch.org under the rubric
Germany, Hesse-Nassau, Ci...d Church Books, 1701-1875.

Unfortunately, the collection suffers >from poor organization and
pervasive mis-cataloging. Therefore, the Jewish records for Ungedanken
are under "Evangelisch," for instance.

The 1808-1813 records are potentially useful to you because they often
contain marriage annexes, i.e., the paperwork that precedes the actual
marriage. Annexes often contain certifications of the birth or death of
parties related to the marriage. (Deaths of parents, for instance.)

Good luck!

The small community of Ungedanken was merged into the larger city of

there were any 1788 records where Manus birth

Can anyone here direct me to the internet address of an archive which

Yizkor Book Project, May 2015 #unitedkingdom

bounce-2973075-785714@...
 

Shalom,

I won't be making an unheard of fact in saying that if you put in effort,
time and persist to realize a particular goal, in the end there's a good
chance that you'll achieve it. The reason that I bring this up is that in
the past month the Yizkor books in Print (YBIP) Project saw the publishing
of the "Memorial Book of the Molchad (Maytchet) Jewish Community", the
translation of which was coordinated by Myrna Siegel over many years.
Several months ago we saw the completion of the translation through the
effort, time and persistence Myrna put into this project and she must be
admired for seeing the project to its successful culmination and enabling us
to make this book available to all of the people with roots in Molchad
(Maytchet).

Other news this past month is that we were presented with the "The Mahler
Family" book to be placed online with the published version also available
through our YBIP Project - see: http://www.jewishgen.org/yizkor/ybip.html .
The book was authored by Dr. Robin O'Neil who is a former police major
crimes investigator. Through his particular background in criminal
investigation, he has extensively researched the Nazi war crimes and we have
been fortunate in that he has generously donated quite a number of his books
to the Yizkor Book Project over the years and which make extremely
enlightening reading.

The Yizkor Book Project continues each month to add in new projects and
build on the projects that have been setup previously and we will continue
to do so as long as we have your support. The Yizkor Book Project exists due
to generous donors and the untiring assistance of many volunteers. If you
feel able to assist in any field related to the project as a volunteer,
please feel free to contact me. We are currently on the lookout for
volunteer editors who are capable of proofreading prepared translations but
doesn't necessitate knowing Hebrew or Yiddish. If you are able to assist in
this field, I'd certainly be pleased to hear >from you.

Now to facts and figures for May.

Memorial Plaques Database Pre-Conference Update #unitedkingdom

bounce-2971459-785714@...
 

Memorial Plaques Database Grows to More Than 82,000 Records. Please help us
grow!

JewishGen is proud to announce its 2015 pre-Conference Update for the
Memorial Plaques Database (MPD). The MPD database can be accessed at
http://www.jewishgen.org/databases/Memorial/ The MPD database includes the
data >from plaques and Yizkor lists >from synagogue and other organizations.
Many of these sources include patronymic information.

This update added 8,000 records and 6,000 photos >from Canada and the US.
These records come >from 15 different synagogues and other institutions.

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
at http://www.jewishgen.org/databases/Memorial/Submit.htm If you have
additional questions, please contact me directly.

For a complete listing of the institutions currently in the database, please

New JewishGen Success Stories ! #unitedkingdom

bounce-2971303-785714@...
 

We present four new inspiring stories in the latest issue of
JewishGen's SUCCESS! STORIES webzine. You can access these stories
from the "About Us" button on our website or by following this link:
http://www.jewishgen.org/jewishgen/testimonials/index.htm

Peter Vanlaw learned that his family was Jewish when he was 51 years
old. Through a connection he makes via JewishGen's Family Finder, he
learns about the family that had been kept a secret >from him all those
years.

Stella Saperstein knew nothing about her American family while she was
growing up in the former Soviet Union. After several unsuccessful
research efforts, she connects with her previously unknown cousin
through JewishGen's Family Finder.

Carol Clingan obtains a copy of Sarah Cohen's obituary that lists two
surviving sons. She knew of one of the sons, but who was Sam Bloom?
She contacts another researcher who listed the Bloom name in
JewishGen's Family Finder. It turns out he has the other piece of the
puzzle!

Robin Koerner updates her story >from January 2015, telling us of the
Maniches family reunion in Montevideo, Uruguay. It was more than 100
years ago when the ancestors of these families had been together in
Krynki, Poland. Now a connection through JewishGen's Family Finder
brings them together.

This issue was prepared by JewishGen volunteers -- Nancy Siegel,
Editor and Anna Blanchard, Webmaster. We hope you will be inspired by
these stories and we encourage you to submit your own success stories
to us at success@... .
