Re: Seeking KOSLOWSKI in Berlin #germany

I suggest that you look look at the Berlin Address Book

http://adressbuch.zlb.de/

Enter the first line SUCHE and choose the year 1937 for example.
Navigate to page 1396 and there you have the KOSLOWSKIs who resided in Berlin
in 1937. Navigation needs patience and "sitzfleisch" and it is in Gothic
alphabet!!! You better find someone who reads freely this Gothic "thing"...
I have my KOENIGSBUCH family not too far before them.
I am sure it will give you further clue for research. Good Luck!!!

Re: Berlin addresses-Standesamt #germany

Lande
 

It is nothing unusual when a researcher does not know the Berlin street
address where a relative was born or died. Given the number of
Standesaemter in Berlin this can pose a problem when one is seeking a birth
or death certificate. I am told, however, that there is a solution and that
such inquiries (no address) can be sent to Zentrale Suchumlaufstelle,
Standesamt Friedrichshain-Kreuzberg von Berlin, Schlesische Strasse 27A,
10947 Berlin.

Given the difficulties of such a search, if you do submit an inquiry, there
is likely to be a long wait for an answer.

INTRO - Researching ROSENBLATT family from Burghaslach, (Middle Franconia), Bavaria #germany

Lenny Rosenblatt <sandylen@...>
 

Hello GerSig,

My name is Leonard Rosenblatt and I just joined the group. I have
been doing genealogy research for 8 months and consider myself to be a
beginner in doing German Jewish Genealogy research. I live in New York City,
am American and my native language is English. I speak no German, but intend
on learning the language for research and travel purposes.

I have identified the names and birth and death dates of my grandparents,
Julius and Fay ROSENBLATT (nee NEWMAN), both born in New
York. Fay's family was >from Vitebsk, Belarus.

My great grandparents, Benjamin and Clara ROSENBLATT (nee METZGER).
Clara's family lived in Buffalo, New York. Benjamin and Clara were
both born in the United States, Benjamin in New York City, and I'm not
sure where Clara was born. They lived in New York City. Clara's
father was William METZGER. Her grandmother (my great great great
grandmother) was Magdalena - born 1802. They were >from Baden.
William METZGER was a tailor.

My great great grandparents were Meyer and Sophie ROSENBLATT (nee
HEILMAN). Meyer was >from Burghaslach and emigrated to the United
States in 1849, embarking >from Bremen on the vessel Amy, and disembarking in
New York, Castle Garden, in June, 1849. He became a naturalized citizen
of the United States in 1855. His naturalization was witnessed by Sigmund
ROSENBLATT (not sure if he's a relation or it's just a coincidence they
had the same name). Meyer was a tailor.

He married Sophie HEILMAN roughly 1858-59 and had about 7 children. Sophie's
father (my great great great grandfather) was Jacob HEILMAN. I don't have any
other information on that branch of the family.

My primary research goals now are to find other descendants of people
with the surname ROSENBLATT >from Burghaslach and to find my ROSENBLATT
great great great grandparents in Burghaslach.

My JGFF Researcher ID number is 152064. Many thanks,

Leonard Rosenblatt, NY, NY Lenny Rosenblatt <sandylen@gmail.com>

MODERATOR NOTE: Please enter these names and towns in the JGFF (JewishGen Family
Finder). http://www.jewishgen.org/jgff/ For example, Rosenblatt - Burghaslach

You should search both the SIG message archive and the JGDG message archive.
One search would be for "Rosenblatt and Burghaslach"
You might be luck if you try "Rosenblatt and Heilman"
Putting "and" between the search words will bring you all messages containing both
of the words.
A search for "Jacob then Heilman" will find all messages in which the name
spelled exactly Jacob Heilman is included.

Ancestry makes accessing their military collection free through November 13 #general

Jan Meisels Allen <janmallen@...>
 

For those who are researching their families military information this will be of
interest.

In honor of America's military heroes, the entire U.S. Military Collection on
Ancestry.com can be searched free through Nov. 13. To begin exploring your family's
military heritage, visit www.ancestry.com/military.

Ancestry.com today added more than 600 Navy cruise books to its online collection
of military records to commemorate Veterans Day. This historic effort is the result
of an agreement between Ancestry.com, and the United States Navy. As part of the
agreement, Ancestry.com set up scanners on location at the Navy Department Library
in Washington, DC, and has spent several months digitizing the cruise books for
this occasion.

The collection of Navy cruise books, available exclusively online at Ancestry.com,
represents nearly 40 years of cruises following World War II (1950-1988) and
chronicles an estimated 450,000 servicemen deployed at sea during that time. Styled
after yearbooks, the cruise books include the names and photographs of individuals
who served aboard the ship and highlight not only significant milestones that took
place during the cruise, but also the day-to-day life on board ship. While not
every Navy cruise was documented in a cruise book, the Navy Department Library has
on file an estimated 3,500 cruise books, which Ancestry.com plans to digitize and
add to this collection over time.

INTRO -Researching Emma FUCHS and Henry KATT from Hanover Germany #germany

Fred Walz <fwalz3@...>
 

Hello GerSig,
I just joined the group. I have been doing genealogy research for one year.
I consider myself to be a beginner at German Jewish Genealogy research. I live
in suburban New Jersey, USA. My native language is English. I consider myself
advanced in using a computer. My experience in using the Internet is extensive.

My primary research goals now are to find out mt Jewish heritage possibly through
either of my great-great grandparents Henry and Emma (FUCHS) KATT. Henry was
born about 1849 and Emma about 1851 in Hanover, Germany. They emigrated to the
US sometime prior to 1876. They settled in Manhattan NYC and had at least one
daughter Matilda Catherine KATT born in 1880 in NYC. Henry and Emma KATT
later moved to Hudson County NJ and are buried in the Grove Church Cemetery
in Union City NJ. My JGFF Researcher ID number is 359437 Thanks you.

Belgian Red Star Line Museum looking for emigrant memorabilia and stories #general

Charlotte Op de Beeck <Charlotte.OpdeBeeck@...>
 

Belgian Red Star Line Museum looking for emigrant memorabilia and stories. Between
1873 and 1934 the legendary shipping company Red Star Line transported more than
two million passengers to America. Poor European emigrants in search of the
American Dream, but also affluent passengers travelling for business or pleasure
left for New York. They departed >from the city of Antwerp (Belgium, Europe), where
the port warehouses of the Red Star Line were situated.

To this day those Red Star Line warehouses are preserved. For many passengers they
represented the last stop on the European mainland. It was there that, just before
their departure, the emigrants travelling in third class underwent a medical
examination and were disinfected, while clerks scrutinized their documents.

The Red Star Line buildings are protected monuments. They are part of the communal
memory of innumerous new Americans. They had long been standing empty and were
pleading for a new purpose. In the spring of 2012 the new Red Star Line Museum |
People on the Move will open its doors at this historic location. It will be a
place of remembrance, experience, debate and research into international mobility,
both past and present. The story of Red Star Line and its passengers will be
brought to life once more.

Do you have any old Red Star Line items such as postcards, luggage, diaries or
photos? Are there travel stories or objects preserved in the family archive? Maybe
you too can contribute to the new museum collection. Send an e-mail to
redstarline@stad.antwerpen.be or call (+32)3 206 03 50. Perhaps your family item
will find its way into the future museum... All tips are welcome!
