Re: Lodz Census Registration Cards 1916-1921 #poland

I already thanked Logan yesterday, but I would like to share with this
group the emotional connection I felt when I found the registration
cards for both my Father's and Mother's families. Aside >from seeing
the names of Grandparents, Aunts and Uncles I never met, I also learned
for the first time, the name of a great grandfather. This for me is a
real treasure, which I immediately shared with my own children, niece
and nephews.

I am now anxiously awaiting the release of more names, so that I can
search for my Father-In-law's family record as well.

Thank you once again.

Spelling of names may be different than what you expect. For instance,
my Bursztajn family suddenly became Burstein, a German spelling, but
went back to Bursztajn later. So don't be put off if the spelling is
a little different.

These documents are the registration cards that one fills out in order
to be registered in the Spis Ludnosci, that is, the official Books of
Residents of a town/city. They contain name of head of household and
his/her occupation (widow can be listed as head of household),
religion,
birthplace and birth date and where they lived before. They also have
the name of the spouse and where born, and the names of children and
their birthplace and birthdate. There is also an address where they
live, and changes of address are recorded. All in all, a very
wonderful
resource. Thanks Logan!

X-Message-Number: 1

Scans of about 135,000 Lodz registration cards with census-like
genealogical information stated as being >from 1916-1921 are now
viewable online, organized roughly alphabetically by surname of head
of household.

Here is a typical example, a card for Hersz STEINHARDT and family:

http://www.szukajwarchiwach.pl/39/221/0/4.12/25117/str/1/3/100/
aTIb2A5a0XMzB59jHKqu6g/#tabSkany

To view the scans, first go to the list of groups of scans at:

http://www.szukajwarchiwach.pl/39/221/0/4.12/str/1/2000#tabJednostki

Note the last column on the right, Number of Scans/Liczba Skanow. If
that is 0, there are no scans available for the group. For example,
there are currently very few scans for surnames beginning with A-J.
(I do not know if/when additional scans will be added.)

Clicking the title of a group (e.g., [Spis ludnosci Lodzi]
Sztajnberg-Sztejnke) will bring up an overview page, with a red tab at
the top. Click the link to the right of the red tab, Scans/Skany.
This will lead to a group of thumbnail images, 15 per page by default.

Note that the alphabetization is not always precise and sometimes is
based on a Polish version of the surname. For example, Steinhardt
appears with Sztajnhart in the Szt- section, not in the St- section.

Clicking on a thumbnail will enlarge it. On the enlarged image, there
is an icon near the bottom right that looks like a white rectangle on
a black circle -- clicking that will open a new window to display a
high-resolution image. Because of the size of the high-resolution
image, it might not be fully visible on your screen, but you can
click, hold, and drag it with your mouse to change the visible region.
To save a high-resolution image to your computer, click the
Download/Pobierz link below the image, in the bottom center.

I have not examined these scans carefully, and I regret that I am not
able to offer further information about this material or individual
assistance.

Reichsvereinigung der Juden in Deutschland: Letter D #germany

Subject: Reichsvereinigung der Juden in Deutschland: Letter D

I have just completed indexing and Steve Morse has posted the cards for more
than 500 Jews whose family names begin with the letter D. This follows
letters A, B, C and L and totals over 6,000 names. Although all these
persons were resident in Germany in the late 1930s/early 1940s, many were
born in what is today Poland and other parts of East Europe.

Those who find names of interest may contact me at plande@... and I
shall forward a copy of the card. which often contains additional
information such as family member, street address etc. Please only contact
me after looking at the database located under the German Jewish Roof Card
Collection heading among Holocaust databases on the Morse site.

Stephen Falk <sfalkjd@...>
 

JRI-Poland has completed indexing of the 1889 to 1910 Jewish birth,
marriage and records >from the Breslau Standesamt (civil registration).
These 22 years of records were not microfilmed by the LDS.

Although covering a relatively recent period of time, the information
in this data is surprisingly valuable to researchers. The death
entries, in particular, can be very helpful in bridging gaps from
other sources and identifying individual born in the early part of the
19th century.

In addition, many birth records contain notes referring to the
person's marriage or death in pre-War Germany or their continued
residence in Germany in 1939.

And now this data is even more useful!

Digital images of the very Standesamt records indexed by JRI-Poland
are now available online >from the Polish State Archive in Wroclaw.
With the information >from the JRI-Poland index, it is now very easy to
find the corresponding original birth, marriage or death document
without searching district-by-district or year-by-year.

To view samples of the entries in the JRI-Poland Breslau / Wroclaw
project, go to:
http://jri-poland.org/psa/psawroclaw.htm

A few years of these records are online and can be searched on the
JRI-Poland website. However, the complete 1889-1910 file cannot be
posted online until the project is fully funded. And when it is
funded, JRI-Poland will provide direct links >from its search results
to the corresponding records, making your research even easier.

Please contact me if you would like help in any way or if you would
like more information.

FW: Post Holocaust DP Camps #hungary

alsilberman@...
 

While there are thousands and thousands of books on the holocaust and many
databases on the victims (such as those on Jewish-Gen) I have yet to see any
books or databases on people who were located in the DP camps.

I was an infant and child post the war and lived with my parents and a
brother in an Austrian DP camp for three years until we were allowed to
immigrate to the US.

Are there any books and / or databases on the locations of the DP camps
where people such as myself were temporarily located?

Elfman Rubinovicz, Bialystok #general

Sue Levy
 

Does this name mean anything to anyone? It was the name written in a siddur
dated 1856, Vilna. This siddur, now mislaid, belonged to the Vinacour family,
formerly of Minsk and possibly Pinsk, then Metulla, Palestine(1890s), and finally
Melbourne, Australia (c1912).

There is a suggestion the family's name was originally Bialystok, or more
likely, Rubinovicz of Bialystok.
