JDC Archives - Special Hours for Jerusalem Conference attendees #germany

martha@...
 

The Archives of the JDC are preparing for researchers >from the Jerusalem
2004 Conference the week of 4 July. Under normal circumstances, they are
not set up for more than a tiny number of users. However, for the
Conference, they are preparing a special adjoining room which they will
furnish with microfilm readers and special material of interest to us. They
are planning to open this room on Tuesday and Thursday between 15:00 and
18:00 and on Wednesday between 08:00 and 10:00. The JDC Archive is very
flexible and willing to open this room additional hours as well. They have
asked that you register with them so they can get some idea of how many
people to expect.

What can you expect to find at the JDC?

They have a microfilm made >from registration cards of people seeking help during
World War II through Joint offices in Munich, Vienna and Barcelona.
This comprises some 80,000 names with family details. After the war, the Joint
had a location office in Istambul which tried to locate refugees and lost
families. These records are also available. And finally, there is a list of
survivors, which, alas, does not have a search engine. This list is arranged
according to location, and then by family names arranged alphabetically.

The JDC lists include additional information that is not available at Yad Vashem.

If you wish to do research at the JDC Archives during the Conference,
please send an email to them at <archives@...>

We look forward to seeing you in Jerusalem!

Archives of the Vienna Jewish Community #general

Florence & Henry Wellisch <kelwel@...>
 

Sometime ago I received several hundred pages of the inventory of this
material, which is located in the Central Archive for the History of the
Jewish People (CAHJP), Jerusalem. Please note, this is only the inventory.
Practically all the material is in German. The period covered is between the
19th century until the end of WWII. For people who are looking for
information on the Jews of Vienna this is an incredible resource, and with
the upcoming conference in Jerusalem, study of relevant
parts are a must for those at the conference. Please note that this
inventory is also available on the internet on the
website of the CAHJP. The material in these files, noted below, deals mostly
with the period between 1938 and 1944, but there is also a lot >from the
earlier times. Here are some examples of what one can find:

Register of Jews living in Vienna as of 15.9.1939 (Organized by district, it
seems this list is not alphabetical)
Establishment of a total register of Jews living in Vienna, 1942
List of those Jews living in mixed marriage (XII, 1944)
Suicides or attempted suicides (Card index, 1938)
Correspondence of genealogical content with Race Office, 1938/40
Alphabetical list of people receiving financial support, 1938-1943
List of inmates in KZ Dachau, Gusen, Gross-Rosen, Flossenburg, Schawabisch
Hall, Hamburg- Neuengamme, Mauthausen, Ravensbruck, Sachsenhausen,
Buchenwald; 1938 -1942 (including date of death, some releases)
Correspondence with [deported] persons in Litzmannstadt [Lodz]1941-1944
Correspondence with inmates of "Workcamp Birkenau" and Monowitz and
workplace Suben 1942- 1943
Correspondence with persons in Theresienstadt, 1943-1944
Many lists of children, some alphabetical, sent to countries like England,
Australia, Belgium, Ecuador, Czechoslovakia, France, Holland, New Zealand,
Norway, Sweden,
Switzerland, Uruguay, USA, 1938- 1941.
Lists of transports to Poland
And there is much more......................

Whereabouts of Sharon Grollman and Alan W. Stearn #general

Dear JewishGenners,

I am searching for possible connections on my CHERNOFF side of the family.
I have written to the list of other people searching for the name Chernoff,
and two emailed notes bounced back to me: Sharon Grollman (#43536) and Alan
W. Stearn (#7665).

I was hoping that one of you might have newer email addresses, or perhaps
Sharon Grollman and Alan Stearn are subscribers to the Digest and would
write me.

Thank you for your help and Happy Hunting,

St. Albans List puzzle #general

t. wise <terwise111@...>
 

After failing to find my grandfather in the Ellis Island records, or the NY
arrivals Soundex, I went through the M1461 and M1464 microfilms, and
discovered he came to America not directly >from Bialystok as we had assumed,
but >from Canada. I found the entry dated May 25th, 1905 in both the
manifest and the manifest card, and they show that he left Montreal via the
Grand Trunk R.R. for New York. So now we're trying to figure out how he got
to Canada ... and here's the puzzle:

On the original manifest, under "Whether ever before been in the United
States", it says "No". But under "Port of Landing" and "Date of Arrival"
it says New York, August '03. Under "Name of Steamship" there is just a
line. (On the Manifest card, that line is interpreted as "Unknown".)

So two main possibilities occur, and I'm hoping to get some expert advice as
to how to proceed >from here.

1) He did come to New York, but *not* Ellis Island, and then went right to
Canada. Is this a likely possibility? And if so, what port might he have
entered >from and where could I find those records?

2) He mistakenly answered "New York" to the "Port of Landing" question, and
did land in Canada. So far, I've gone through the Quebec and Halifax
arrival records for August 1903, and did not find him. (The St. Johns
microfilm is on order.)

Any advice as to how to go >from here?

thanks in advance,

Terry

Re: BASCH , BOAS few suggestion #germany

Ury Link
 

Steven (Shimon) Frais asked:
"The name I was looking for was Yitzchak (Isaac)BASCH (c1800-c1850). I discovered
a letter there with the signature of Yitzchak "Bo'as". It anyone is familiar with
Hebrew spelling, this signature is written "beit", "aleph" (with a "T" shape vowel
under the aleph), "aleph" (with a hyphen shaped vowel under this letter),"samech".
The letter is dated 1832 so it is the correct period. I need to get it translated,
since it is written in a German type of Yiddish, but I didn't notice
any more names in the letter. My question to the list is does it seem
likely that this letter is written by a BASCH ancestor, or does this spelling
indicate a different family altogether?"

==== In my extended family of Posen province, and later Berlin, we have the
PASCH family, and one of them was Boaz PASCH, whose son Ismar / Itamar was
born in Rogasen 28 9 1895, and murdered in Auschwitz 09 12 1942.
The version which was raised by Steven, is most probably the Yiddish for the
biblical name Boaz (Bet- Ayin - Zayin). Best regards,
Udi Cain, Israel chaikin@... >>>>>


To this letters to the GerSig >from 11 June I wanted to write few notes about the
names BASCH and BOAS.
from my knowledge about Surnames in Holland and Germany I know that the family
name BOAS is in Holland very common and we find it also in Germany. Normal is the
spelling in Hebrew or Yiddish as "Beit - Vav - Ayin - Zein" like BOAZ.

I find 1 time this name with the spelling "Beit - Alef - Alef - Samech" like BOAS
or perhaps BAAS ,dependent what was the good pronouncing of the name. The origin
of the family name BOAZ is as Udi write the Biblical name Boaz.

The name BASCH is **perhaps** the acronym B'S = Beit - Shin = BAAL SHIRA and
it mean a Cantor a Singer or a Poet. Normal it mean a cantor (Chazan).
In Holland a lot of people that was named CHAZAN or have the profession of
Cantor changed the name in 1811 to VOORZANGER, SINGER or to BAS and also to
BAS- MESHORER. (bas it mean a Bass) The same I think is happened in Germany also
in the same time. Why the write the name BASCH in Hebrew letters as "BEIT - ALEF -
ALEF - SAMECH" I don't know, but if it is as Mr Frais write with a Kamatz (T)
under the ALEF then is the pronouncing of the name BAAS and not BOAS.

**My conclusion** is that the name derives >from the acronym B"S as BASCH and it
mean a cantor, or the name was in Hebrew Bas what mean bass. The connection
between the 2 names is very clear. The only thing I don't know is what was the
first name BAAS or BASCH. Best regards
