Great German Cemetery Headstone Photos #germany

Stacye <FernsAndNettles@...>
 

Wonderful high definition photographs of all headstones in the Jewish
Cemeteries of the following German towns/cities have been photographed
by Michael Ohmsen and put in to video form at:

http://www.youtube.com/user/OhmsenMichael#g/search

If you have ancestors buried here you will be able to read their headstone.

In the 'Search' bar enter the name of the city or town as listed below
to find the corresponding video.

Bobenheim-Roxheim / Deidesheim / Eberbach / Eichtersheim / Frankenthal
/ Fusgonheim / Heidelberg / Heslock / Heuchelheim / Hillesheim /
Hockenheim /

Ladenburg / Lambsheim / Lampertheim / Ludwigshafen / Mainz-Bretzenheim
/ Mannheim / Meckesheim / Michelfeld / Nieder-Olm / Ober-Olm /

Obrigheim / Pfalz / Schifferstadt / Schwetzingen / Speyer / Walldorf

Tips for watching the videos:
1.) You can enlarge the videos to 'Full Screen' size by clicking on
the '4 arrows' found at bottom right edge of each video. To return to
standard screen size just push the 'esc' button on your computer keyboard.

2.) If you find a headstone you would like to examine, just use your
mouse to click on the 'II' bar of the video (you will find it usually
at the lower left edge of the video). This will "pause" the video so
you can look at as long as you like.

3.) You can "photograph" any frame of the video by pausing it and
using the 'Prt Sc' (Print Screen) button on your keyboard. Then go to
(pull up) the "Paint" feature on your computer programs list and then
use the 'Prt Sc' button again. The image should appear on the "Paint"
program screen and you can crop it down.

4.) If you have a Google account, you can log in and 'save' any of
the videos to your "Favorites" List or post them to your Facebook
account for family to see.

I recently found out that one of my ancestors (Rose Abramowitz) emigrated with her
husband (Hersch Zwilling) (and possibly daughter) >from Galicia to Argentina with the
help of the Baron de Hirsch Society. Is there any list or other way to get further
information about emigres >from 1891 to 1912?

Re: Changing confessional status #general

1. why would someone do this?
2. was "evangelistic" a specific term for evangelist or a term generally
encompassing Christianity.
Pamela Weisberger helpfully noted, "Evangelical could refer to
Evangelical Lutheran or Evangelical Reformed or Evangelical. All were
religions. Usually this happened when someone married out of his or her
faith and changed religions for that reason, but there could be others."

To address point 2 first: In the US in 2011, "Evangelical" can encompass
television preachers and snake handlers, but most likely Sharon's
grandfather became a Lutheran. In German-speaking countries (and former
parts of the Austro-Hungarian empire), "Evangelisch" means simply
Protestant, which in practice there in the 1930s was usually Lutheran.

As to point 1, while it's possible that the gentleman converted to marry
a Christian, or that he sincerely adopted new beliefs, one shouldn't
dismiss the possibility that Sharon's grandfather was reacting to
pro-Fascist leanings, and actions, in Hungary. In 1938, Hungary adopted
its First Jewish Law, which placed a 20% limit on Jewish participation
in certain professions. That might have been reason enough to convert.

Unfortunately, the Hungarian parliament passed a Second Jewish Law the
next year, which (among other things) defined Jews as a race, not just a
religion, thus rendering all converts, sincere or not, Jewish once more
in the eyes of the Axis-supporting Hungarian government.

Yours sincerely,

The Vilijampole vital records are being translated by LitvakSIG through

provides its contributors with copies of the excel spreadsheets for
