Another contagious illness was diphtheria. My grandmother's three
youngest siblings all died within one month in November 1893 in New
York City. There is a triple headstone for them. I cannot recall
which cemetery.

Birth records for Gubin #germany

Ronnie Hess
 

Dear GerSig,

I am trying to find birth records for my paternal gmother, Ida (nee
HIRSCHLAFF) HESS, born in Gubin/Guben November 30,1869, died October,
1942. I've contacted the State Archive in Zielona Gora but they could
find no birth record (no Jewish books >from the village), and no record
of a marriage to my paternal gfather, Nathan HESS, which I've guessed
might have occurred between 1899 and 1902 but don't know where. (It
could have been in Berlin.) Any advice on how to find more information
or a genealogist who might help would be appreciated. Many thanks,

Ronnie Hess Madison, Wisconsin (WI) rlhess@wisc.edu

NY is an exception but CA can easily be confused with Canada. Please use Cal. or

To members who have ancestors in Milwaukee Co., WI, the record breaking
flood that occurred on Thursday evening (7" in an hour+), flooded the
Milwaukee Co. Historical Society building. Because of construction that
was taking place, 50 boxes of historic records had been temporarily
stored on the basement floor. Civil and divorce records dating to the
19th century were damaged. Some were typed and others were handwritten.
Volunteers and staff are attempting to save them.

Luckily thousands of boxes >from 1836 to the 1930s remained dry inside a

Deaths of Prof. Drs. Paul Sauer and Utz Jeggle #germany

Emily Rose <emily@...>
 

Joachim Hahn (www.alemannia-judaica.de) has announced the recent deaths of
Prof. Dr. Paul Sauer and two years earlier, Prof. Dr. Utz Jeggle. Both of
these men wrote seminal books on Jewish German rural history, which many of
us used for our family research projects.

Dr. Sauer's books were among many others: Die juedischen Gemeinden in
Wuerttemberg und Hohenzollern, Juedisches Leben im Wandel der Zeit: 170
Jahre Israelitische Religionsgemeinschaft, and 50 Jahre neue Synagoge in
Stuttgart. Dr. Jeggle wrote Judendoerfer in Wuerttemberg in 1969. It was the
first post-war book on German Jewish rural history.

On a personal note, both professors were most generous with their time and
knowledge over the course of my research for my book.

Transcription mistake or intentional wrong registration? #hungary

omri@...
 

Dear Group,

I hope you can help me to solve an unusual mystery I encountered.

I have been researching my REINITZ family for years now and think I have a
good knowledge of it.
In the Hungarian marriage databases I found the following registration of a
GGUncle of mine:
-------------------------------------------
Groom: REINITZ, Lajos / Jakab
Parents: Bela / Cecilia (MACHULUP)
Age: 34
Born: in Nagy-Kanizsa

Bride: KAUFMANN, Rudolfina
Parents: Moric / Johanna (RIESZ)
Age: 22
Born: Vag-Ujhely

Marriage date: 25-Mar-1883
in: Pest (Budapest, Local Gov't - Pest-Pilis-Solt-Kis-Kun)

Source: LDS 642975, Vol. 34
Record: 30-04
-----------------------------------------
As far as I know >from various sources REINITZ Lajos's parents were REINITZ
Ignatz (My GGGF) and BETTELHEIM Kunigunda, and the people registered above
as his parents were Bela (he had a brother by that name) and his Aunt, by
marriage to REINITZ Albert (Ignatz's brother), MACHULUP Cecilia (the
"original" MACHULUP Cecilia was already dead 30 years when this marriage
took place.). By the way Lajos did marry KAUFMANN, Rudolfina.
Seems like a mess, doesn't it? But if this is the way it was registered and
not a transcription mistake, I wonder why.

Appreciate your helping me solve this riddle.

Thanks,

Dear Friends -

Many thanks for all the feedback regarding the "Jewish experience" in the late 1940's
. Thanks to your suggestions, I have since learned that my SEIDNER relative was in
a DP camp in Graz, Austria, with his wife in 1949 before heading to Australia. Your
personal stories are also appreciated, as they help me understand the environment.
