Vital records for Salzwedel - starting late 1700's #germany

Judith Elam
 

My g-g-grandmother, Emilie HIRSCHBERG NATHAN, was born in Salzwedel,
probably around 1810 - 1815. Her father was Moses HIRSCHBERG, who died in
Salzwedel before her marriage on August 30, 1868 to Wulff NATHAN, probably
in Salzwedel too.

Does anyone know where I can obtain vital records >from Salzwedel for this
period? A search on the LDS website reveals there is a book in German on
the Jews of Salzwedel, but it doesn't say what period it covers, and
unfortunately I don't read or understand German well enough to tackle the
book!

I have e-mailed the Standesamt in Salzwedel, but I doubt their records will
go back that far.

Please contact direct at elamj@...

Subject: [latvia] Address in Riga


In response to Steven Morgan's Another question about Riga,

The 1885/86 census has my great-grandfather Judel Mendel Morgen living
at Polisadnaya Street, # 49 in Riga.>
A check on Google Maps and Google Earth shows no street by that name.
My guess is that Polisadnaya Street is Russian and the name was
changed to something else in Latvian after World War I when the
Latvian Republic was established. It could also have been changed
after the break up of the USSR 20 years ago.
According to the "Riga Street, Square, Park and Bridge Name Index " (2001)
Palisadnaya Ulitza has been renamed into Telts iela. I found the Telts
street on a Latvian -Russian (about 2000) map at the left bank of the river
Daugava (former Duenau) close to the present 2nd Riga city Hospital.

In hope it helps, Evelyn Waldstein (Riga, now in Israel).

10/18: Ukraine Scrapbook -- A Journey that Took 105 Years to Plan and Finally Take #general

janicemsj@...
 

Sunday, October 18, 2009, 1:00-3:00 p.m.
San Francisco Bay Area JGS Meeting

JCC East Bay
1414 Walnut Street
Berkeley, CA 94709

Doors open 12:30 p.m., program begins 1:00 p.m.

Topic: Ukraine Scrapbook -- A Journey that Took 105 Years to Plan and
Finally Take
Speaker: Alan Dolgow

Allan Dolgow's presentation is more than his trip to Ukraine; it is
his genealogical journey. He started a journey into the past, but what
resulted was a journey into the present. He met a cousin in Polonne,
Ukraine who had worked as a surgeon at a field hospital in the Russian
Army during WW II and found relatives living in the Ukraine, Russia,
Israel, Canada, India, and the United States.
Allan Dolgow was born in New York City and graduated NYU with
engineering and MBA degrees. He moved to California in 1979, joining
SRI International in Menlo Park as a management consultant. He retired
in 1996. It was not until 2001, by accident, that he started looking
for his family roots.

Meetings are free and anyone interested is welcome to attend.

Erich Eichner in Rio de Janeiro #latinamerica

Judy Schulman <jschulman@...>
 

Dear Latin American SIG:

I am new to doing genealogy. So I apologize if I am asking what may be
obvious to others. My grandfather had a nephew by the name of Erich
Eichner who came to Rio de Janeiro >from Vienna Austria in the late
1920s or early 1930s. He started a bookstore around 1935 called
Livraria Kosmos. My English and Portuguese attempts to contact this
store (email and regular mail have gone unanswered). I believe he
died in the 1970s and is buried in the Caju Cemetery. Is their a way
to get a photo of the grave site or a copy of an obituary? Any help
would be greatly appreciated.

Sincerely
Judy Schulman

Re: More Slovak records in LDS/FHL catalog #hungary

Bob Lenk
 

In my previous message, I didn't make it clear where these records can
be found. These are entries in the online catalog of the Mormon
Church's Family History Library (FHL), at:

http://www.familysearch.org/eng/Library/FHLC/frameset_fhlc.asp

I periodically do a KEYWORD search for the keywords "slovakia" and
"jewish". There are now 166 entries returned; My previous message
listed the ones which have been added most recently.

These records are on microfilms, which are kept by the FHL in Salt Lake
City, Utah, USA. Copies can be ordered and viewed there, or almost
anywhere in the world where there is an active Mormon Church. You can
find these local Family History Centers at the same website. There is a
nominal charge for each film ordered ($5.50 in the US).

The originals of these records are in the various archives in Slovakia.
Most, if not all, of the records mentioned in my last email are in the
Statny archiv v Bratislave (State Archives in Bratislava). You can
search the archived messages of this listserv for further information.

Dear H-SIG'ers,

I would like to alert everyone on the list to a wonderful researcher in
