Fw: Nesvizh Ghetto #belarus

Bernice Goll
 

Hello,
I am writing the story of my family's survival of the Holocaust in the
puschas of Belarus. My father was very young at the time and his parents
have passed away. So I am searching for documentation or other eye witness
accounts.They were in the Nesvizh Ghetto, (my grandfather was on the
Judenrat), and escaped the final liquidation to the forests of Belarus,
(Bialovieskaya or Lipiszansky). They were part of different family groups.
My grandfather, Moshe or Shiye Goldberg, who was over 40 years old was too
old to be a partisan. He built underground bunkers for the partisans.
His wife was Toba and sons were Gabriel or Eugene, and Abraham, my father
Except for my father's brother, Gabriel, the family survived until the
liberation of Belarus by the Red Army. I think they went back to Nesvizh,
where my grandfather made potato starch syrup at a converted tar factory.
In 1945 they left Belarus. They went first to Lodz, Poland and then to the
Linz-Bindermichl JDP camp. They emigrated to the USA in 1947.I have put in
a search at ITS. I am planning to look at the writings of Shalom Cholawsky
and David Farfel, or whatever versions I can find translated into English.
If anyone knows where else I could find more documentation or personal stories
about the survivors of Nesvizh ghetto, forest family groups, Nesvizh after
the liberation but before the end of the war, or any personal knowledge of
my family there, I would so appreciate your help.

Thank you.

SCHWARTZ from Butka/Budkovce #general

henry schwartz <henry@...>
 

Dear Genners,

A while back I became aware that an ancestors of mine (4x great
grandfather) came >from Butka, Austria-Hungary, which is currently known
as Budkovce, Slovakia. I don't have much information only a date for when my
3rd great grandfather Yeshaye/Sajo//Samuel SCHWARCZ was born in 1815, most
likely he was born in Butka. Yeshaye passed away in 1883 in Sarospatak,
Hungary. Therefore, I am looking for anyone that has ancestors or
individuals that married into the family with the surname SCHWARTZ >from
Butka/Budkovce.

I hope I will be able to connect some dots and figuring out a connection.
The surname Schwartz can be spelled in a variety of ways. for instead
SVARTZ, SCHWARCZ, SVORTZ, etc.

Thank you

Henry Schwartz
Researching: Schwartz >from Sarospatak, Kiralytelek, Nyiregyhaza. Other surnames
connected to the Schwartz family were HAAS, TREUHAFT, FRIEDRICH
and GUTTMANN

Archives in Hessen and new sources #germany

Gerhard Buck <buckidstein@...>
 

Yesterday's two mails about genealogical sources in Hessen may be a bit
confusing to some readers. Therefore the following clarification.

In Germany, the central archive, called Bundesarchiv, is of no great
importance for genealogists. Genealogists have to do their research
work in the archives of the federal states, called Staatsarchiv.
The trouble is that we have more archives than federal states.

In Hessen, we have state archives in Wiesbaden, Darmstadt, Marburg and
the city archive of Frankfurt. All of them store material for a certain
part of Hessen. After 1945, the Gatermann films of all the communities
of the new state of Hessen were acquired by the Central Archive in
Wiesbaden and they received the number 365. Therefore the images were
now published on its website.

Another new source for the genealogists became available when the vital
registers of the Standesaemter (singular Standesamt) became accessible to the
public in 2009. Standesamt registers began in 1874. In Hessen, the old
registers, [pre-1874] that were kept by the Kreise (singular Kreis;
comparable with counties), were not sent to Wiesbaden. The pre-1874
vital records were sent to a new, special institute, which is part of
the Staatsarchiv Marburg.

Since 2012, they are digitized and prepared to be published on HADIS,
which describes the holdings of all the state archives. It was only a
few weeks ago that the images became accessible, after the last legal
obstacles had been overcome.

The following link gives some information and leads you to the
respective website of HADIS: http://tinyurl.com/ondaqpn.

Yesterday, Michael Moritz already showed the way how to find the desired
locality. However, since I was discontent with my own way to the
Judenregister (which is similar to his), I looked for another method. I
found one to both the Jewish registers and the Standesamt registers.

For historical research in Hessen we have the website of LAGIS. Go to it
with this link: http://www.lagis-hessen.de/de/subjects/index/sn/hadis.
Fill into the only search field the name of your place, e.g. Wiesbaden.
If there are images of the Standesamt registers in HADIS, you find the
titles of every year. (A short lesson in German: Geburts- / birth,
Heirats- / marriage, Sterbe- / death; -neben- / copy.) The titles are
links to HADIS, where you only have to click on Media.

If there are Jewish registers in HADIS, you find a link on the right in
the blue field. It presents the titles on the same page, which are links
to the final page of HADIS. If there are only Jewish registers, you get
only them. Try e.g. Rhina.

I hope my trial and error method with these new websites has come to a
good end.

Difficulty using szukajwarchiwach.pl to view vital records? #general

Logan J. Kleinwaks
 

I recently posted about vital record scans newly available on
szukajwarchiwach.pl, and some researchers reported difficulty finding
the scans.

When you follow a town's link that I shared, you will see a list of
titles of groups of records, and, to the right of the titles, the
corresponding dates and number of scans available. Some record groups
might have 0 scans available, but all towns I posted have some scans
available.

If you are only seeing 0s, scroll down until you see the record groups
with more than 0 scans available and click on those titles. I do not
know when szukajwarchiwach.pl will post the missing scans.

Seeking GRINFELD/GREENFIELD and ISSERSOHN #general

Marianne Handler
 

I am trying to verify the connection that links the ISSERSOHN and
GRINFELD/GREENFIELD families. I had always thought my grandmother,
Victoria TALMICI/TALMAGE had a sister, Fannie and a brother, Isaac. It
now appears that she had another sister, Rosa who became Rosa
ISSERSOHN. I am seeking any information that might verify that link.
Here is what I know:

Itzhak & Rosa IISSERSOHN had 6 children: Victoria, Isidor, Dvora,
Shalom(Solo), Sofi, Moshe. They came >from Dorochoi on the Russia's
border." It is believed that Rosa was a TALMAGR/TALMICI before her
marriage.

Any information on this would be appreciated.

The Tomaszow cemetery book ( http://yizkor.nypl.org/index.php?id=2958 )
includes a triple grave of three persons who died in 1935.

Two were young brothers: Yitskhak-Yaakov BERLINER and Reuven-David BERLINER.
With them was buried an elderly man Ozer-Simkha MILSZTEIN.

I am seeking an event which may have taken place at that time which might
explain why they were buried together.
