Re: (Czech Republic) Reassembling a Lost Jewish Cemetery #austria-czech

Joseph Lonstein
 

Thanks to Jan for her post, which refers to the same project our SIG received
information about in late August >from Julius Muller. A large branch of
my family lived in Prostejov (many surnamed GRUNHUT, BACK, KOCH), so this
piqued my interest when we first heard about it. I contacted the project's
director, Tomas Jelinek, and was told that they have access to transcriptions
of many of the stones >from the "old" cemetery, which obviously must have
been made before it was destroyed. His researchers sent me the names and
plot locations of my known and possible family members, and for what I thought
was a reasonable fee they quickly searched the transcriptions, sent me
photographs of the pages, and translated the Hebrew or German text into English.
The information I received was very valuable to me, and in a few cases included
information such as the names of spouses, parents, place of birth, and/or occupations
that was not included in the death records I viewed
on the Badatelna website. I don't know what percentage of the total gravestones
from the "old" cemetery have paper transcriptions in the files that
Tomas' researchers have access to, but it could be a tremendous new resource for
information about pre-1900s Prostejov people.

A New Searchable Database on JewishGen #austria-czech

easpira@...
 

A new searchable index has just come online in JewishGen's
Austria-Czech database.

The new index consists of 9600 of the birth, marriage, and death
records >from the Moravian town of Trebic (Trebitsch). Using this new
index allows direct access to the original records of residents of the
Jewish ghetto, >from 1784-1934.

To find a desired record, one needs only to enter the surname of the
person in whom you are interested, on the A-C database search page.
Then select "Trebic births", "marriages", or "deaths". >from the list
of names that the index shows, select a specific given name. This
leads to the desired image page of the original record.

Although I have tried to accurately transcribe the names and page
numbers >from the original records written in Gothic German script,
there is an error rate of approximately 3%. If the desired record is
not on the page which the database search has led you to, it can often
be found within a few pages. Search among these for the correct folio
page number, as provided in the index. (Folio page numbers are
usually located on the upper left or right corner of the record page.)

This is the first of what I hope will be many indices of the vital
records of towns of relevance to our Group, prepared by our members.
Please consider submitting indices of towns of interest to you,
prepared as separate spreadsheets for births, marriages and deaths (I
used Excel). Send them to JewishGen for inclusion in our groups'
database.

The amount of work involved in preparing an index is considerable,
depending on the size of the town, but the potential usefulness to our
researchers is much greater. And, while you are entering the data on
your spreadsheet, you can also enter it into your genealogy software
(I use Reunion for Mac), and be able to produce family trees of any or
all of the inhabitants of your town!

I will be happy to help answer questions members have about the Trebic data=
base.

Death record for Jews who left the faith in Vienna #austria-czech

danielat1@...
 

Does anyone know how to find a death record for Dr Georg KLAPPHOLZ who was a
lawyer born in Bratislava in 1900 to Irma nee TUSCHAK and Ede? He left the
Jewish faith and was cremated in Vienna in August 1928. As he died at a
young age of 28 I'd like to find out how and why he died but I don't know
how to get that information.
Is the only way to ask the Vienna City Archives and pay them to do the
search or can I find out online at no cost? I've looked in the Mormon
records but he is not listed in the death records as far as I can tell. I
may have fouled up the search as I find those records hard to use.

Prostejov #austria-czech

mbeer@...
 

Dear people,
I am one of the few Prostejov Jews who survived the holocaust (in
Theresienstadt) and am still alive.
My younger sister Karmela survived too - she does not remember anything.
Karmela was so young, being sent to Theresienstadt when she was only eight
years old.
Our great grandmother was born Husserl.
My maternal grandfather Max Steiner who died in ghetto Theresienstadt went
with me when I was about 11 years old to this old cemetery
he showed me the name of one of our relatives written on a grave. I am not
sure about the name, if it was Husserl or Steiner.
I also know about the surname Husserl (our ancestors were probably Husites).
With thanks Maud Michal Beer (born Stecklmacher).

Name of City in Arkhangelsk Oblast #general

During WWII my late mother-in-law was in a labor camp in the Oblast of Arkhangelsk.
She says she was near the city of Keasafna--I am spelling it as she sounded it out.
The city was near or on the water.

Does anyone have any idea what the name of this city really is?

Note that some of these records take us right up to the eve of the Shoah.

Many thanks to Judith Springer and Dena Whitman for translating the vital records,
to Ellen Garshick for processing the translations and preparing them for the
Concordance, and to Adam Bronstein for making the records searchable on our website
using Steve Morse's One-Step search system.

All of the pre-release, unedited translation spreadsheets and translated documents
as well as the vital records master spreadsheets are available to and downloadable
by those who have contributed to our work within the past 2 years. Donors have
exclusive access to our KDRG Contributors website on Google:
<https://sites.google.com/site/kdrgcontributors/home>

Although these full translations will not be available to the general public until
they are proofread and edited, we will send up to 10 records at no charge to any
researcher who identifies entries of interest in our Concordance. Please contact
me (rddpdx@gmail.com) if you need information about how to obtain these records or
how to access the KDRG Contributors website.

To see a list of all the records we have completed, are working on, and are
acquiring, download our "Document Acquisitions and Status" spreadsheet >from the
Kremenets KehilaLinks website. It is the first item at:

In cooperation with the Central Archives for the History of the Jewish People
(Hebrew University, Jerusalem) we are continuing our search for additional vital
records. We need your help to acquire and translate these records.

This website contains pre-release (and downloadable) copies of _all_ of our record
translations and documents, even those that have not yet been edited. These
translations will not be publicly available until they are proofread and edited,
so it may be a year or more before you can access them ... unless you contribute to
our work. Early access to these translations is a major benefit for our donors.

We need your donations to help us keep this work going. All donations are used
exclusively to acquire and translate records and documents. If you have any
questions or if you need more information, please contact me at rddpdx@gmail.com.

I'm looking forward to hearing >from you.

Best wishes,
