LDS Records for Unruhstadt / Kargowa 1817 to 1874 #poland

Geoff Kaiser <geoff_kaiser@...>
 

Dear Researchers,

through the excellent work of the people at the Toronto Copy Centre I will
be recieving printed copies of the LDS Films for the town of Unruhstadt (now
Kargowa in Poland - Location 52 Deg 04 Min 15 Deg 51 Min) in the coming
weeks.

I am looking for people who have an interest in this town to assist me with
the large process of reading and transcribing the Birth, Death and Marriage
and Family name records in preparation for them to be loaded onto the JRI -
Poland Database.

Some preliminary previous work has identified some of the frequently
occuring names as follows:

Baumgart, Bernhold, Bamberg, Basch, Borgheim / Burgheim, Boas / Boar,
Bucholz, Cohn, Coppel, Falk, Fallek (?), Fischel, Gittman, Gabriel,
Grunpert, Hertzburg, Jablonski, Joseph, Jacobi, Judas, Lichtenstein,
Lippmann, Loeser / Loser, Loeb, Lowenstein, Levine, Lowenthal, Marcus,
Meyer, Mendel, Neubauer, Nachman, Nathan, Oppenheim, Pach
Phillips, Pincus, Reich, Riesenthal, Reitzenbaum, Schlesinger, Sigall,
Seilig, Stern, Silberstein, Samuel
Saloman, Wolf / Wolff, Wigdor, Wiener, Vogel, Zirker

Not all of the spellings may be correct, and note this is a very preliminary
list, there will be many others.

If anyone with an interest in the town of Unruhstadt or any of the above
names would like to contact we can discuss how you can help with the task.

I look forward to your support

Re: Cologne (Koeln) & Prison + MARCUS & ROSENBOOM family #germany

gaby laws <gabylaws@...>
 

Hi,

My gg grandfather's brother Nathan Philippus ROZENBOOM died 19 December 1871
in prison at Klungelputz 37 in Koeln. I'm interested in finding more
information about his imprisonment - do such records exist?

Also my gg grandfather Aron Marcus ROZENBOOM, used the surname MARCUS, he
had at least 12 children, I have been able to find information about 9 of
them but seek further information on the following:

Levie MARCUS b11/6/1865 Zutphen Holland, was a merchant living in Cologne in
1898 & 1899, nothing further known. Was he married? have children? etc

Abraham MARCUS b18/12/1867 Zutphen Holland, nothing further known.

Meyer MARCUS b10/9/1875 Delmenhorst, he died in Cologne 18/6/1909 and
according to his tombstone he was married and had children but no names are
there.

The Cologne archives are not prepared to provide any information on the 3
people shown above as I am not a direct descendent.

I would appreciate any help or advice on finding out more about this family,
Thanks - Gaby Laws London UK gabylaws@hotmail.com

Nothing further known.

and whether they had any children etc.

Also my gg grandfather's brother Nathan Philippus Marcus ROZENBOOM born

to be Klingelputz 37, would there be any further information available? if

Seek advice about MICHAELIS ancestors just recognized as Jewish #germany

Lorraine Garcia <max.geneology@...>
 

Hello,

I'm wondering if I can perhaps get some guidance in this particular
matter. My mother was born in Charlottenberg, Germany, and came to the
US as an infant alone with only her parents. Her parents never told her
anything but the sketchiest details of her relatives or their past. As
I was talking with her today she said she wanted to do some family
history research. We did some internet checking and found that her
family surname, MICHAELIS is Jewish, at least in Germany. We have a
family picture of my great grandfather, Max Paul MICHAELIS, on which my
grandfather wrote he was "murdered by Nazi criminals" in 1944. Until
yesterday, we had no idea, and please forgive our ignorance, that
MICHAELIS was a Jewish surname. So you can imagine our shock when we
realized that many of our family may have died in death camps. This is
rather overwhelming information for us and we feel an urgent need to
find out the truth about our ancestry. Any suggestions for information
would be welcome. Also, any information about the MICHAELIS family in
Germany would be greatly appreciated.

Thank you, Lorraine Garcia <max.geneology@fastmail.fm> Baltimore, Maryland

Families Bonnewitt, Bonnewett, Bonavid, Born. Strauss, Mayer #germany

Elizabeth Levy <levyliz@...>
 

I have been left with a treasure and don't know what to do with it.

My great great uncle's wife died a few years ago in Sweden and left me with
ALL the family photos and all family papers. My girlfriend just came to
visit >from Stockholm carrying 6 kgs of photos! Imagine my excitement.

On the other hand, imagine the frustration... There is nothing written on
the backs of 99.9% of the photos! If I can give any advice to people today,
it's label your photographs!!!

I have been able to recognize the photos >from my side - my uncle's side - of
the family, but want to find someone who can recognize my aunt's side.

The papers also came with an old typewritten family tree for her mother's
side of her family. I'm currently putting that in the computer but would
love to pass it on to someone reaching those names. The familes are
BONNEWITT (also known as BONNEWETT and BONAVID), BORN and STRAUSS. The
father's family is MAYER although no tree is available for the MAYER side.

BONNEWITT, BORN et al started off in Eichloch Rheinhessen.
STRAUSS in Freilaubersheim, Rheinhessen, later Dromersheim.
MAYER in Langenlonsheim and Laubenheim.

If these names or places are familiar to you, let me know and we'll try to
find a connection. Thanks.

INTRO - Seeking MICHAELIS #germany

Lorraine Garcia <max.geneology@...>
 

Hello GerSig,
I just joined the group. I have just started doing genealogy research. I consider
myself to be a novice in doing German Jewish Genealogy research. I live in
Baltimore, Maryland, USA. My native language is English. I consider myself an
expert in using a computer. My experience in using the Internet is extensive to
intermediate.

I have identified the names and birth and death dates of my grandfather
and great grandfather.

My primary research goals now are to find out more about the rest of my ancestry.
The family names and towns that I am researching are:

- My mother Eveline Ursula MICHAELIS was born in Charlottenberg,
Germany, (I believe 104 Wilmersdorfer Str.) in 1925. She came to the US
in 1926 with her parents.

- Her father was Max Edgar MICHAELIS, born 1895 and died 1972 in New
Jersey.

- My great grandfather was Max Paul MICHAELIS, born 1866 and died at the
hand of the Nazis 1944.

A possible Jewish heritage for our family is something that is entirely
new to us and my mother and I hope to find out who we really are.

DEADLINE REMINDER: September 20, 2005 for the Obermayer German Jewish History Awards #germany

Arthur Obermayer <obermayer@...>
 

The German-Jewish Community History Council, GerSIG and the Berlin
Parliament would to remind you that the deadline for submission of
nominations for the the annual Obermayer German Jewish History Awards is
September 20, 2005. These awards are to be given to non-Jewish Germans
who have made extraordinary contributions to preserving the Jewish
history, culture, cemeteries and synagogues in their local communities.

Thousands of Germans have carried out such activities as volunteers
because they feel it is the right thing to do - the preservation of
Jewish material is one of the few ways in which they can respond
constructively to their country's horrible past. We, as Jewish
genealogists, have been the recipients of their good work. This award
provides Jews throughout the world with the opportunity to recognize and
honor German individuals who, in many cases, have devoted their
lifetimes to such important endeavors.

The deadline for submission of nominations is September 20, 2005.

Many of you previously submitted worthy nominations. Those nominees who
have already received Certificates of Commendation are prime candidates
for this year's awards, and will only require updating of the submissions.

This will be the sixth year for such awards, which will be given on
January 25, 2006. Each awardee and their spouse will be invited on an
all expenses paid trip to Berlin to receive the award at the Plenary
Chamber of the Abgeordnetenhaus, the home of the Berlin Parliament. The
honorees will receive a framed certificate and an honorarium to be used
for the furtherance of their work. Awardees' contributions will be
described to attendees and to the local, national and international news media.

These awards have in the past received extensive coverage in American
newspapers, including the New York Times, the Washington Post, the Miami
Herald, and the Boston Globe. It has also received coverage by the
Jewish Telegraphic Agency, the Associated Press, and a great many German
daily and weekly newspapers, as well as specific articles in American
Jewish weeklies, as well as numerous overseas newspapers, such as
Ha'aretz and the Jerusalem Post.

If you know someone who may be appropriate for nomination, further
information -- including the Call for Nominations and profiles of
previous award winners and the jury -- can be obtained at:

Remember that the deadline for submission of nominations is September 20, 2005.

Response from Romanian Archives #romania

Hello, dear colleagues!

After the update >from our dear co-ordinators regarding the National
Archives of Romania (July 2005 to this mailing list under the title: "Las
Vegas report and important announcements!", I sat down and wrote a letter
to those archives.

I wrote in English with all the details needed and sent it by fax,
according to the instructions given in the mentioned message. The fax was
sent to the main offices of the archives in Bucharest, regarding two areas
of interest: Galati and Cluj (and specifically the village of Huedin)
For make it clear, I specifically asked for BMD records of specific persons
- >from the second half of the 19th century >from Galati, and >from the
1850s-1920s >from Cluj.

The answer >from Galati
----------------------
A week after the fax was sent to Bucharest, the director of the Galati
branch sent me a letter in Romanian. The letter said that my request has
been recieved and they will be glad to help me WHEN I COME TO THE RESEARCH
ROOM in their Galati branch!

The answer >from Cluj
--------------------
The director of the Cluj branch sent me a letter in English about a month
after sending the fax. In it, he says that they found nothing regarding my
request, and that the material I'm looking for, might be found in the Town
Hall of Huedin. He gave me the exact address and to whom I may write my
letter, and so I did, just a few days ago.

I'll be glad to hear more reviews as for your experience with the Romanian
archvies as for requests sent after the update we've got.
