Dear JGSGB membership,

Martin has offered a copy to all of his Power Point Presentation, after
Sunday's well supported D&S SIG, should any of you be interested. A lot of
effort went into producing his family's story- centred around the Baghdadian
Mashadi Community.

Regards,

thank you to all for Theresienstadt information #general

Judy Vasos
 

Thank you so much to the many people who answered my call for
information about the housing/retirement scheme our relatives fell
victim to. I'd truly never heard of it before but now understand
how this operated and how easily they could have been duped into
turning over their assets.

And a special nod to Fritz Neubauer for dates of deportation to
Theresienstadt and later to Auschwitz for one family member and
Treblinka for another.

The members of this website are amazingly knowledgeable and
generous in sharing what they know. Many thanks.

Ita,

It's Albacete, which was a major centre for the International
Brigades for much of the war. As Sue suggests, the International
Brigades Memorial Trust might be able to advise you on researching
places of death and burial.

There'ss also an excellent article by Martin Sugarman, which includes
a few paragraphs on the Polish Dombrowski Brigade and where and
when they fought - see p3:

Jews in the International Brigades:
https://www.jewishvirtuallibrary.org/jsource/History/spanjews.pdf

He lists all the known names of Jews in the Dombrowski Brigade, >from
pp18-44; Henryk Mandelbaum appears on p33, but, as with most of the
others, there is no further information on his fate. There is also a
Heinrich Mandelbaum listed amongst the US Abraham Lincoln Brigade, who
may or may not be the same person.

Whilst scrolling through the list of Polish volunteers I spotted the
name Jakub Frankenstein, which is an oft-repeated name in my family. I
don't know who this could be, at the moment.

I hope you find your Henrik - let us know!

Best wishes,

Michael

Re: Maps/Atlas question - [With SITE CITEs] #germany

Roger Lustig
 

Lin:
A fine tool for this sort of thing is:

http://gov.genealogy.net/search/index

...which produces charts showing what belonged to which at a given time.

Go there and enter "Markelsheim" in the search box.

The next screen will give you a choice of places with the name in
question--in this case, there's only one. Click on it.

Now you should get a listing followed by a chart of "superordinate
objects." Enlarge it a bit. Now you can see that the Ortschaft
(township) Markelsheim belonged to (>from right to left) the Kreis
(county) of Mergentheim until 1938; the Landkreis (also county) of
Mergentheim >from 1938 until 1972; and the Stadt (city) of Bad
Mergentheim since then. >from there, the arrows will take you up to ever
larger units, and each arrow will have the relevant date range next to it.

Before 1800 or so, it's nearly impossible to construct such graphs
because so much changed so frequently, and some places even had more
than one owner.

Fritz Neubauer pointed out that Markelsheim belonged to the bishopric of
Wuerzburg, which was part of Bavaria. True enough--but only until 1411,
when the place was sold to the Teutonic Knights, a religous order with
its seat in Mergentheim. They held it until 1809, around the time that
Napoleon abolished church-run governments and territories. At that time
it became part of the Kingdom of Wuerttemberg that Napoleon had established.

Another good source: Wikipedia. The English version redirects
Markelsheim queries to Bad Mergentheim, but the German version does
not--and if you have Chrome or a similar browser you can translate the
page. It may come out a little funny, but you should be able to get the
gist.

STEINHARDT in Rozwadow #galicia

Inacio Steinhardt
 

I have been unsuccessful so far in finding vital information about my
grandfather Hersz Mendel (Herman) Steinhardt, of Rozwadow, and
about my greatgrandfather Kopel (Yaakov) Steinhardt, probably also
of Rozwadow. I assume that Hersz Mendel was born around 1880.
He was also known in Rozwadow as Hersz Kopels, because of this
father's name. Any directions for further investigation will be highly
appreciated.

Dear Lin,

perhaps this website may help you:
http://gov.genealogy.net/search/index
It is the 'genealogische Ortsverzeichnis' " historic gazetteer "
In the left column there is a button 'Sprache wechseln', push it und you
can use the English version.
You will find a lot of information about the politcal structures in the
past and today! Best Regards,

Widow using maiden name? #bessarabia

Deborah Barr
 

My great-aunt Jennie, whose maiden name was Lumer, was 27 and widowed when she came over
in 1907. Either she married someone with the same last name as herself or else she reverted to her
maiden name, because she went by Lumer on the ship and thereafter. I do have a piece of
evidence that her husband's name may have been Fine, but I'm not sure it's reliable.


Is it likely that a young widow would have gone back to using her maiden name, or should I
assume that she married a Lumer?

Any thoughts appreciated.
