Re: Town of Buehl - seek vital records SITE CITE 2 #germany

Justin Levy <levyduffy@...>
 

Hanna,
For finding placing in Germany, I find it best using the Genealogical Gazeteer at:

http://gov.genealogy.net/ (instructions in English - mostly)

There is a town of Buhl (with an umlaut on the u) in Landkreis Rastatt, SE of
Baden-Baden. The post code is 77815.

For Jewish communities in Baden-Wuerttemberg go to:

http://www.alemannia-judaica.de/baden_wuerttemberg_friedhoefe.htm

Although this site is mostly in German, this community history is in English:

"Buehl Baden. Jews are first mentioned in 1579 but the few Jewish families there
were forced to leave in the early 17th century and the Jewish settlement was only
renewed during the Thirty Years War (1618-48). A synagogue was dedicated in 1832
and a cemetery in 1833. In 1830-76 a Jewish elementary school was in operation
as the Jewish population grew to a peak of 301 in 1865 (total 2,888). In 1827,
Bruehl became the seat of the district rebbinate. Among its leading rabbis was
Leopold Schott (1807-69), one of the first rabbis in Baden with a university
education, who introduced a Reform style of worship. There were anti-Jewish riots
in the 1848 revolution. Jews were regularly elected to the municipal council.
from the last third of the 19th century, the Jewish population began to decline
through emigration and the shift to the big cities, dropping to 72 in 1933.
When the Nazis came to power, the Jews were immediately subjected to persecution.
Torah scrolls were vandalized in 1935 and Jews were gradually forced to liquidate
their businesses. On Kristallnacht (9-10 November 1938), the synagogue was burned
and Jewish stores damaged. Up to 1940, 21 Jews emigrated and 13 left for other
German cities. The community ended when 28 were deported to the Gurs concentration
camp on 22 October 1940."

Hope this helps you track down the records you are seeking.

Could this "Black Bread Disease" be related to Coeliac disease also

Celiac disease is caused by exposure to the gluten in wheat, rye, barley
and other grains --- the very ones which are the main ingredients of bread,
including black bread in Europe.

The custom of marrying the widow of your brother who had
not produced a child was alive and well in Nezhin Ukraine (a town
under significant Lubovicher influence) through World War I. These
marriages do not appear specifically noted in the marriage records,
but they are specified in the divorce records when the parties part.

Surname: HIRSCHFELD/DEERFIELD in USA #general

Since the name Hirschfeld in German is translated in English as deer and
field, I have wondered if there were people who Americanized their
European name Hirschfeld into Deerfield. Does anyone know of a Deerfield
family who had Jewish origin?

Tennessee Naturalizations #general

mbrichman@...
 

I am interested in finding out where I can get information about
naturalizations for residents of the State of Tennessee during
the early 20th century.

For pre-1906 - I am familiar with the book "Davidson Co., TN Naturalization
Records 1803-1906" by Mary Sue Smith, although it appears that the records
available to Ms. Smith were incomplete - it listed one of my relative's
Declaration of Intention, but no indication about his petition or naturalization
certificate. Are those records missing for the 1901-1906 period?

Post-1906 - Where would those records be kept? The National Archives has a
listing for naturalization records in the Western District -
Memphis area - but not the other parts of the state (I am interested
in Nashville and certain southern counties). I saw one list that
suggested that Tennessee naturalizations may be found in Alabama court
records. Is there other information out there about (1) which court(s)
granted these naturalizations, and (2) whether those
records are held in a National Archives branch?

Thank you.

Black Bread Disease #general

Jay Paul <jpaul54@...>
 

In response to Howie Axelrod's question about his grandfather >from
Russia dying of "Black Bread Disease," my guess is that this is due to
ergot poisoning, a mold that infested rye grain and was a serious
problem in Europe for hundreds of years. There is some historical
information available at:

http://www.moldreporter.org/vol1no6/moldHist.

This mold infected rye grain, as I've mentioned, and produced a toxin
that remained in the kernel when it was then ground and made into
bread. Those who were poor and lived primarily on rye bread were most
susceptible. Children were most likely to die, and survivors frequently
suffered both longstanding physical and mental illness as a result of
this unsuspected poison.

I have been asked by Warren Blatt to post the following important
message on his behalf regarding new databases.

JewishGen is pleased to announce the addition of 37,000 new records

There are 13 new datasets, and two updated datasets. The 13 new datasets are:

death camp at Chelmno, June-August 1944.

* "Gyor Victims at Auschwitz":
Names of over 3,000 victims >from Gyor, Hungary, deported to
Auschwitz, made by a Jewish communal organization.

* "Jewish Physicians >from Czechoslovakia":
Names of 1,668 Czechoslovakian physicians who died during the
Holocaust, >from an unpublished yizkor book manuscript.

Applications of 621 individuals claiming American citizenship,
processed in Zurich by the U.S. State Department.

* "Subotica Jews, Victims of the Fascist Occupation, 1941-45":
1,993 names of victims >from Subotica, now in Serbia (formerly
Szabadka, Hungary, before WWI).

* "Balta Ghetto":
