STORING ORIGINAL DOCUMENTS?

Stephen Denker
 

Are there websites and/or suppliers we can go to learn and/or purchase materials?

 

Should the individual documents be separated in storage boxes?

Seminar : Remote Access to the Arolsen Archives

Yvonne Stern
 

Seminar to introduce remote access to the Arolsen Archives -
Researching Nazi Persecution, Forced Labour and Displaced Persons -


Arolsen Archives & NIOD, Institute for War, Holocaust and Genocide Studies
29.01.2020-31.01.2020, Amsterdam, NIOD
Deadline: 16.12.2019

The Arolsen Archives - International Center on Nazi Persecution
(formerly the International Tracing Service, ITS) - hold the world's
most comprehensive archive on the victims and survivors of National
Socialism. Part of the institution's mission is to continually improve
access to its collections, which are made up of well over 30 million
documents pertaining to the Holocaust, Nazi concentration camps, forced
labour during World War II, and the registration and care of Displaced
Persons (DPs) in the post-war period. Furthermore, the archive holds
more than three million post-war case files documenting the fates of
individual Nazi victims (mainly correspondence with enquirers). By now,
over 85 per cent of the records have been digitised. Users can access a
growing number of documents (albeit not the collections in their
entirety) in a new online archive that the Arolsen Archives launched in
May 2019. For more information about the institution and its holdings,
please refer to the website of the Arolsen Archives at
www.arolsen-archives.org.

The NIOD, Institute for War, Holocaust and Genocide Studies is a
research, knowledge and information centre about war, the Holocaust and
genocide and is part of the Royal Netherlands Academy of Arts and
Sciences (KNAW). Founded on 8 May 1945 with the goal of writing the
history of the Second World War in the Netherlands and in the former
Dutch East Indies, the area of work today covers the 20th and 21th
century. The focus thereby lies on research into the effects of wars,
the Holocaust and other genocides on individuals and society. The
ambition of the NIOD is to make links with war violence visible
elsewhere in the world through independent research with a strong civic
focus and to show that the long-lasting consequences of violence do not
stop at national borders. For more information about the institution and
its holdings, please refer to the website of the NIOD at www.niod.nl.

As part of a broader strategy to enable and improve access to the entire
digital collections, the Arolsen Archives and the NIOD Institute for
War, Holocaust and Genocide Studies are co-organising an international
three-day research seminar for scholars from the Netherlands and
neighbouring countries. The event will take place at the NIOD in
Amsterdam from 29 January through 31 January 2020. At its core, the
seminar will enable participants to carry out their own research in the
digital collections of the Arolsen Archives through a recently
established "remote access" solution. Competent staff on site will
provide guidance in exploring the depths of the digital archive. For
this, participants will have to bring along their personal (portable)
computers. Please note that remote access will only be possible on
devices running Microsoft Windows. Participants will be able to save
selected documents of interest free of charge.

Over the course of the event, there will be room for joint discussions
about the pros and cons of working with the documents in their current
digital environment. Participants are also encouraged to exchange ideas
on both methodological approaches in general as well as their individual
research projects. How can varying scholarly needs - for instance with
regard to research on individual persons, but also larger groups,
places, or specific thematic aspects of Nazi persecution - be met
through the current structure of and search engine navigating the
digital collections of the Arolsen Archives? Where do their limitations
lie? And which future activities in processing the collections (e.g.
through specific metadata indexing) have the potential to enhance
researchers' experience and enable them to engage in innovative methods
and topics?

The seminar will take place at the NIOD in Amsterdam, 29 January through
31 January 2020. The event language will be English. Participants will
arrive in Amsterdam on 28 January 2020.

Interested candidates from The Netherlands and neighbouring countries
are encouraged to send their application via e-mail to
requests-rs@.... Applications should consist of a short
letter of motivation, a brief biographical note, and an overview of the
project for which you intend to explore the digital collections of the
Arolsen Archives (1-2 pages in total). The deadline for applications is
16 December 2019. Participants will be chosen and notified by 20
December 2019.

The organisers will cover the costs of accommodation (three nights at a
hotel in Amsterdam), organise the hotel bookings, and provide two
lunches and two dinners. Participants, on the other hand, will have to
pay for and book their own transportation to and from Amsterdam.

If you have any other questions, please feel free to contact us at
requests-rs@.... We look forward to many interesting
applications!

The short answer is no. One may not assume every member of a society was from the town or region associated with that society as people may have joined family or friends. That said compatriots from that town or area were typically the majority.

Poland + Ukraine 1764-1766 Jewish census images online for some towns #poland #ukraine #galicia

Logan Kleinwaks
 

I have just posted at https://archive.org/details/agad_fond350_sygnatura168 photographs of a book of 1764-1766 Jewish censuses for the following towns (+ some nearby villages), which I wrote about here in 2018:
 
Kingdom of Poland: Baranów (Lublin), Końskowola (Lublin) + Wlostowice, Międzyrzec Podlaski (Siedlce), Staszów (Radom)

Galicia: Berezhany / Brzeżany, Jarosław, Kalush / Kałusz, Narayiv / Narajów, Peremyshlyany / Przemyślany, Sieniawa, Skole, Tarnoruda

Podolia: Hraniv / Granów, Letychiv / Latyczów, Medzhybizh / Międzybóż, Nikolayev / Mikołajów, Sataniv / Satanów (statistics only), Stara Sinyava / Stara Sieniawa

Volhynia: Klevan / Klewań
 
I photographed the book at AGAD in Warsaw and have received written confirmation from AGAD that this material is in the public domain and can be shared as long as a citation is given to the archive and file location.
 
Example citation: Archiwum Główne Akt Dawnych w Warszawie, Fond 350 (Archiwum Potockich z Łańcuta), Sygnatura 168.
 
More details are given at the link above, including a table of contents with links to jump to the first images for each town.

Anyone is free to index this material, but, if you are interested in doing so, you might want to first 1) announce your intentions here to avoid duplication of effort and 2) reach out to the appropriate Research Directors or Town Leaders at JewishGen, Gesher Galicia, or JRI-Poland.  It is my understanding that Staszów and Międzyrzec Podlaski have been indexed but are not yet online.  I do not plan to organize indexing myself.

Also, anyone who would like to share/post some or all of these images elsewhere is welcome to do so -- just include the citation.
 
Please note that I am not affiliated with archive.org and am not responsible for other content hosted there, I am just using it to share and preserve public images as do the U.S. Holocaust Memorial Museum, Leo Baeck Institute, Library of Congress, Reclaim the Records, etc.  In the future, I may post additional archival documents there (with permission from the archives), of both Jewish and more general genealogical interest.

Thanks very much to AGAD and its archivists and supporters for preserving this important material and making it available to researchers.

Devonport is part of Plymouth and information on this area would be in Rabbi Susser's index of Jewish families in SW England with info on the JGSGB's website.My late father lived in Plymouth between the wars.

If you join the JGSGB you will have access to all their online facilities including their Jewish Communities database, for which there is one on respectively Wales, Scotland, Ireland as well as larger and smaller communities in England.   I myself have family from Liverpool and North Wales. From memory, an academic  researcher called Nathan Abrahams wrote a book on Welsh Jewry a few years ago.

birth and death and other factors such as country of emigration, suicide,
Mischling, etc.
For any name of interest one should go to the card >from which this information
was drawn, available at the Bad Arolsen website. The cards include
additional information, such as profession and street address.
