Re: gersig digest: [Where was] Mahlhof ? Is it perhaps Mielno (Chodecz)? #germany

Hi Alex,
In my experience, if you can't find a location on
http://gov.genealogy.net/search/index, then it's often a
misspelling or transcription error.

Mahlsdorf however, with the extra S in the word, is a district of Berlin
that had forced labour camps, which the Russians would have been the
first to liberated.

http://www.zwangsarbeit-forschung.de/Lagerstandorte/Berlin/berlin.html

gov.gen above also has another Mahlsdorf near Magdeburg, but probably
one of the locations on the Lagerstandorte list is a good candidate.

Jews of Czernowitz in 1941

Zev Cohen
 

In July 1941 the Romanian army captured Czernowitz from the Red Army as part of the German offensive against the Soviet Union. My maternal aunt Chana left Czernowitz with a unit of the Komsomol headed in the direction of Vinitsa.
My maternal uncle Jascha had previously, during the Soviet occupation of the city, been exiled to Siberia.
The family surname was Variten or Veretena.
Neither was heard from again.
I would appreciate any information relevant to the above-described events.

My sister in laws family were the Palumbos from Sicily. She was not a fan of Jewish people.  I lived in New York then.  After moving to Tucson and begnning my teaching career I was researching Sicily and discovered that the Palumbos of Sicily were a family of wealthy Jews and that the early settlers of Sicily were Jewish families.

Speaker: Deborah Long, Author and Educator

Topic: Out of the Whirlwind: Finding Your Family Lost in the Holocaust

 

Deborah Long has been researching her family’s Holocaust history and looking for surviving family members for more than 50 years.

The daughter of two Holocaust survivors, Deborah Long reviews the best (as well as some of the obscure) resources and methods for

determining the fate of those involved in the Holocaust, including survivors and victims. Deborah will use examples from her own research 

to demonstrate the documents and artifacts she discovered.

 

Mentors will also be available from 1:00 PM until the start of the meeting to help with your research efforts.

Re: Jewish man from Volyn, Ukraine in which Russian army? #ukraine

N. Summers
 

Re identifying the uniform: I showed the photo to an expert in military uniforms of the era and he thought they were POW uniforms. They don’t match any military uniform of which he was aware. Before I even learned that my grandfather had been a POW, he suggested that it was a POW uniform. It is similar to an Austrian uniform, I think, but I have to double check that.

Does anyone know whether there was a POW camp in or near Vienna during WWI?

Thanks again,

Nancy in Maryland

Re: Rabbinic SIG

Carol, you should have received two RavSIG digests this week. If you
did not, write to support@... and someone will respond. The
support system can sometimes take a couple of days to respond, so be
patient. But first, check your spam folder.

In general, the address support@... is the place to write if
you have any questions about the SIG lists, which have not been
switched over to the new platform and are still active. They have
mostly been less active than in the past, though, as some people have
chosen to write to the new group instead. It may be that JewishGen was
not a clear as it might have been about what was changing and what was
not.

Use support@... for any questions about JewishGen
operations. Those questions can usually be answered only by people
within JewishGen. Send messages about genealogy to
main@..., so everyone can read them.

Bottom line: the main list was switched to main@....
The SIG lists were not, and remain at {list.name}@lyris.jewishgen.org,
where they have always been.

CORRECTION: UK General Register Office Added Death Records Index From 1984-2019 #United Kingdom #Archives #Records Access

Jan Meisels Allen
 

 

 

Correction:

In my November 8 posting on the addition of deaths to the index from 1984 to 2019 for England and Wales, the part about the death indices was correct. Where I erred, was my comment on birth records. I said they were only available to 1918.  I have been informed they are available after 1918 but are not searchable on the General Register Office (GRO) website. They are however, available up to 2007 on subscription sites such as Ancestry and Findmypast.  Additionally, the free site, FreeBMD.or.uk (https://www.freebmd.org.uk/) currently has records up to 1992.

 

It is possible to order copies of all birth certificates where they are listed on indexes. In addition, there are copies of birth and marriage indexes up to 2019 on microfiche in a small number of Archives and Libraries around England and Wales. The limit of 1918 on the GRO search facility is related to the PDF copies of birth certificates only being available up to and including 1918.


Restrictions on ordering Birth and Death Certificates issued within the last 50 years and restrictions on ordering copies of recently issued certificates

 

From the GRO website:

 

"You will be prompted to supply further details for more recent births and deaths (within the last 50 years) when you complete the online application form. - If you are unable to complete the mandatory fields, then you will not be able to apply online and you will need to follow our telephone ordering process. Please contact us on +44(0) 300 123 1837 for further information."

 

"Records we are not able to provide - GRO is not able to issue certificates for events that have taken place within the last six months (for marriages this period is extended to eighteen months) and you may wish to obtain a certificate from the register office or church where the event was registered. This information excludes adoption certificates, as the local register office does not hold a copy of the Adopted Children Register. If you require further information please call 0300 123 1837 to talk to our customer service team."

 

My apologies for the error in the original posting. 


Thank you to Mark Nicholls and Jeanette Rosenberg, both from JGS Great Britain  for advising me of the correct information.

[Where was] Mahlhof ? Is it perhaps Mielno (Chodecz)? #germany

Alex Magocsi
 

On the residency registration form (Meldekarte der Stadt Passau, September,
1945), it indicates that a former Hungarian Forced Laborer had arrived
from Mahlhof.
I am looking for the current location of Mahlhof which I believe could
be in Poland, or, at the time of his release, is assumed to have been in
the Soviet Occupation Zone (SBZ). He had been taken prisoner by the
Soviet Army.

Is it perhaps Mielno (Chodecz)?

If not, is anyone familiar with Mahlhof >from whence former laborers were
released? (responses in German or English appreciated)

Regards, Alex Magocsi awmjr@...

APOTHEKER-LANDA/LANDAU in Nowy Sacz(and Brody) #poland

Abuwasta Abuwasta
 

Dear Siggers,

Thanks to you all we are making a steady progress in unfolding the roots of
my late father in law David APOTHEKER.

His grandfather was Isak Saul APOTHEKER who was born in 1831 in Uscie
Zielone(Ustya Zelene) nearby Stanislawow
to a Rabinical family which lived already in the mid 18th century in
Brody.

Just got access to the list of graves in the old cemetery of Brody
where I found this piece of evidence. He moved around 1850 to
Nowy Sacz and married Lea LANDAU/LANDA whose father was Arieh Leib
SEGA"L LANDA. His father was Rabbi Bauch Segal LANDA, Av Beith
Din Nowy Sacz and environs. LANDAU is of course a huge family
but I need assistance to lead me into the Nowy Sacz Rabinical
branch.

Many Thanks
