Dear Andreas,
You are right with Your saying about political
situation with the early German confederation in the
beginning of WWI, but You failed about the nowadays
structure of the archives. There do still exist those
regional archives like in Bavaria (see context above),
Saxonia, Wurtemberg and so on .., but apart >from that
there is the big National Archive existing with
diverse collections of registers, of historical
interest in different places,founded after WWII,
divided in order of specification, and beginning with
roughly the year 1875. Most helpful for military use
may be the WASt-deposit in Berlin as well as the
Militärarchiv deposit in Freiburg/Br. Kind regards

Most of those places still exist. It was generally the Jewish community
(the people) and sometimes the buildings that were destroyed. But buildings
are often rebuilt. So your Grading probably does still exist.

I was going to observe that the place name is so similar to a common English
word that it is almost certainly a distortion of the actual Russian name of
the place. However, I see that Grayding and Greiding were some of the
names applied to the city now called Gorodok (26 km WSW of Lviv). It is now
in modern Ukraine but was in Galicia (Austrian Empire) in 1908. That was
not in Russia then.

But I see that Graydung was a name used for the city now called Horodok in
modern Ukraine, and was in the Russian Empire in 1908, so perhaps there is a
slight distortion in the name as recorded in your family lore. This place
is 107 km NNE of Chernivtsi.

Re: An amazing website! Steven Spielberg! -- particularly interesting to Lithuania researchers #general

Todd Brody
 

There is an amazing home video of Lithuania t theis
website that is about ten minutes long. I was
wondering if anyone who is familiar with Lithuania can
identify the small shetyls in the beginning of the
film. I sent an email to the archives and they said
that the towns had not been identified in the film.
It looks like it could be Telz (based upon pictures I
have seen of Telz) but who knows.

In one of the scenes, there is a quick flash on what
appears to be either a yeshiva or a shul and you can
see the writing at the top (that presumably would
identify the building) but it is literally two seconds
long and when I tried to freeze that frame, I could
not get a good look at the writing.

Rachel,
Rather than publish info about your ancestors, on the internet, you should
consider finding people who are researching your same town. Network with
them and come up with a way to get more information about your town and
family. Volunteer for town projects. This would be a much better use of
your time.
That is one avenue; publication is another. To say that the above is a
better use of time is both sweeping and unsubstantiated.

By offering info about your relatives, freely, how will you discriminate
between people who are legitimate potential relatives, and thieves who just
want to know more about you. I think you are putting your privacy and that
of your relatives at great risk.

Personal information is no one else's business. Protect yourself against
identity theft. Don't publish genealogies.
Like most sweeping and unqualified statements and admonitions, this
one is open to debate. For example, there is nothing in the above
about what "publish" means. It would certainly be foolish and
impertinent to publish a genealogy with a lot of narrative about how
living persons have been spending their time since leaving school or
even before, with addresses and all the rest. On the other hand, a
tree containing no identifying material, no addresses, but only names
and at most dates/places of birth/marriage/death is pretty risk-free
-- especially when one recalls that virtually all identity theft is
done with information obtained through publicly available sources.
Harvesting identities >from published family trees is not the most
productive way for an identity thief to spend his time.

My ID card, containing only information of public record, contains my
parents' names. I have to show this card to various people fairly
frequently; is the Government putting me at risk? When I am called up
to the Torah, my father's name is announced in public; should I ask
the gabai to mumble inaudibly when he does that? There are countries
in which one's patronymic is a standard part of the way people are
addressed, so that the father's name is known to everyone within
earshot; is such a society playing with fire?

There is a large dose of paranoia in the claim that listing of such
information on the 'Net is dangerous. An admittedly extreme example:
In my database of about 3600 persons living and dead, one of the very
few protests (two) was >from a person whose surname (a typically
Anglo-Saxon one, not identifiably Jewish) is represented by tens of
thousands of men in the US alone, and no doubt a similar number in
the rest of the English-speaking world; his given name is borne by
many thousands of Welshman. There is no way that anyone could identify
him >from what is on my website -- even if anybody were looking for him
there. Is he at risk? Because his mother's name is also there, and
because he may be so foolish as to use his mother's name as a password
at the bank?

Use your head about what you publish. A properly limited publication
is no risk. If you want the narrative, keep it separate.

Zamler family #poland

Elaine Farran <simplynanny@...>
 

My grandfather's name surname was Zamler. He came to the US via NY in
1904 but was sent back because he had some eye problem. He returned in
1910 or 1911, entering through the port of Philadelphia, using his wife's
family name, Gorenstein. He then went on to live in NY. There are no
immigration records that I could find for his entry into NY or
Philadelphia.

I have not been able to find anyone with the Zamler last name. I do know
the following:

He had a brother Avram Mendel Zamler (?) who had a son Joseph and a
daughter Phyllis or Felice. I have lost track of that family, but I
know Joseph died some years ago.I don't know Phyllis' last name.
One of the witnesses to his first papers was someone named Minnie
Semler, who lived nearby his residence in East Harlem. I assume she
was a relative, but cannot find anyone of that name.

Does anyone know of people by that name?

Any suggestions on how I can proceed to find family members or more
information about my grandfather? I have his original passport,
discharge >from the army, his first papers and naturalization papers.
His place of birth and his name changes >from one document to the next!

Thanks
