Researching Lynn/Lin family #poland

myra@...
 

I am working on research for my brother in law. His grandmother was Anna
Lynn. Through DNA I was able to find one of her siblings Morris Lynn
Both were >from Vetley/Wetly Poland. I found someone else on Jewishgen
who was researching the family name of Lin in Vetley. She has information
on a Yosef and Lea Lin born around 1870. I was trying to find out if
there would be information on Yosef's father so that I may be able to
see if Anna Lynn's father, Nachum and Yosef's father were siblings or
cousins. Any help would be appreciated.

Thank you in advance,

Brick Wall - Unique Surname #poland

Elaine Farran
 

Would appreciate assistance with a family mystery.

Although one of my ancestral surnames, SZAMPANIER /CHAMPANIER, is unique,
I'm stuck in my research. I learned that this surname's origins can be
traced to Konskie, Poland, as far back as the late 1700's. Records show
that many family members left Konskie around the 1850's and settled in
Piotrkow Trybunaliski and Lodz, while others remained.

I have been in contact with one other family (#2) bearing that surname.
They live in the US. However, their ancestors adopted the Champanier
name in Poland before emigrating to the US because, as their family
stories tell it, they believed their original surname was too long.
In addition, their family came >from a region relatively far >from
the Konskie or Lodz areas. We have determined that WE ARE NOT RELATED.

I also learned that Polish Jews moved further eastward to the region
near or in Kiev in search of a better life, including opportunities
for farming, which led me to another branch of my family.

This Champanier branch lives in Argentina. Their ancestor, SAMUEL
CHAMPANIER, emigrated >from Kiev in the late 1800's and settled in
one of the gaucho colonies near Buenos Aires (Rivera). His wife's
name was name was MARIA CHEPOWA.

We know we are related and NOT related to family #2 - but can't
figure out the ancestry to match. I have not been able to find any
documentation for Champanier in or near Kiev. Would very much
appreciate information. We will be meeting in December and hope
to establish the common ancestry.

Re: Imprisoned on the Isle of Man: Jewish Refugees Classified as "Enemy Aliens" #galicia

Alexander Watson <a.watson.genas@...>
 

Hello Genners,

Just a quick note to say that, what is now known as Knockaloe Farm, on
the Isle of Man, served as a big internment centre for those deemed by
the British to be Enemy Aliens, particularly during the First World
War.

If interested, please see : http://www.knockaloe.im/

Some files of internees are available on request. You can obtain
application forms by writing to the volunteer, Alison Jones, who runs
the Knockaloe site: ajones@knockaloe.im .

Please bear with Alison; she also has a daytime job.

Re: Kennkarten: Records? [1930s German identity cards] #germany

Fritz Neubauer
 

Dear Liz,

Thanks for your question. Just two weeks ago I had a long conversation about
Kennkarten. These were the photo IDs in Germany until 1945.
All Germans could have one, the Jewish Germans HAD to have one,
and the difference for Jewish Germans was that their cards (and passports)
had a big red J [for Jude] in the middle of the first page.

In order to get a Kennkarte, made of a grayish
bendable linnen paper about the size of two passport pages, you had to
fill in three identical beige cards of the same size, otherwise
identical to the card, including the picture.

One copy of this application stayed with the place of residence,
one was sent to the birth place and - for Jews only - one was sent to the
Reichssippenamt in Berlin.

Therefore the Reichssippenamt collected all of German Jews' applications
and they still existed there until 1945, when they disappeared,
so far without trace.

In the last correspondence about what to do about them in view of the
approaching Soviet Army, they talked about a Czech castle, other sources
talked of Thuringian salt mines etc. But these copies of the German Jewish
Kennkarten applications have not turned up yet, and the central collection
has probably been probably lost ...

However, some of the collected local application forms still exist,
especially of the Mainz/Darmstadt/Frankfurt-Hessen-Nassau area.

The Zentralarchiv zur Erforschung der Geschichte*der *Juden in
Deutschland**with its address in Heidelberg contains**1250 of the
application forms, of these 1218 images are directly accessible:

http://www.uni-heidelberg.de/institute/sonst/aj/STANDREG/FFM1/117-152.htm

A detailed Introduction to the history of the Kennkarten (in German) can
be accessed

http://www.uni-heidelberg.de/institute/sonst/aj/STANDREG/FFM1/111-116.htm

The YIVO Institute in New York has even more of the application forms
(with a few originals of deceased owners or confiscated originals by
border guards),about 4,000-5,000. The originals are in YIVO where they
also have an index on paper that was compiled by Estelle Guzik together
with a few helpers (one of them me) about ten years ago.

The USHMM has microfilmed black and white copies of them, but no index.
At least one of the application forms is in Heidelberg as well as in
YIVO, because both collections seem to come >from the same geographical
area (e.g. birth place vs. residence).

It would be very useful if new modern color scans could be made by YIVO
and then made accessible, as is practiced by the Heidelberg collection.
Other cities may have conserved Kennkarten application forms filed by
residents. An example of local residential collections like is in
Munich, whose Memorial Book shows these passport photographs with stamps
on the corners.

But altogether, there does not seem to be a central collection where the
Kennkarten number (usually beginning with the letter A00000, with the
exception of Berlin, where the numbers were preceded by two letters like
AA00000. As long as the Reichssippenamt collection remains disappeared,
nothing can be found with the help of the numbers. It was planned and
the work continued up to 1944/45 to create "Reichspersonalnummern"
(individual numbers for each person) which was supposed to work with
punch cards, Hitler signed a last order about that on December 28, 1944.
More about this can be found in Aly, Goetz and Roth, Heinz' book: Die
restlose Erfassung. Frankfurt: Fischer 2000.

Looking forward to assist in providing more access to the few conserved
cards,
