SITE CITE - New Important Website #germany

Elsebeth Paikin
 

For your information:

An important and interesting new website was put online today which might
have interest for many - not only in Denmark or Scandinavia:

http://www.kb.dk/simonsen/

In is based on David Simonsen's archive now at the Danish Royal Library in
Copenhagen. David Simonsen was a scholar, rabbi, philanthropist and much more.

I cannot here go into details about him or his fabulous archives, but you
can now read about it on the website. But let me underscore that David
Simonsen had contacts in many countries and was deeply involved in relief
work for refugees and immigrants.

- therefore check it out although you have never thought of Denmark
Just a few words about the archives >from the introduction on the website:

"Contents of the archives:

During the more than seventy years that have passed since the David Simonsen
Archives were acquired by the Royal Library, a number of attempts have been
made to make their vast contents more readily accessible to scholars.

However, none of these attempts came to fruition, and no comprehensive finding
aid has been available. The archives were kept in approximately 200 worn-down
and acidulous cardboard boxes, labelled, e.g; Private correspondence 1890-1924,
Jewish relief work 1890-1924.Particularly remarkable letters had been extracted
and sorted according to the name of the sender. The present list of
correspondents is the result of a cooperative effort between the Department for
Oriental and Judaica Collections and the Manuscript Department (by Karen Marie
Jensen).

The principles of organization used in the Manuscript Department have been
followed, and the David Simonsen Archives are now subdivided thus:

Letters
Manuscripts (David Simonsen's own works)
Dispatches (communiques, bulletins, memoranda, press releases)
Files (materials regarding specific topics)
Accounts
Printed matters
Press cuttings
Miscellaneous

The greater part of the archives consists of David Simonsen's
correspondence, now made public through the present list and the website.
Best regards - and good luck!

BAER Family, perhaps in Dayton, Ohio #germany

RalphNBaer@...
 

David BAER, a second cousin of my grandfather Julius, was born on 23 December 1868
in Malsch near Ettlingen (Malsch Landkreis Karlsruhe) in Baden and died there on
16 December 1900. He was married to Sophie LOEB (8 January 1870 Malsch - 1940 New
York).
They had two children 1. Max BAER (13 February 1896 Malsch - February 1969
Fairborn Ohio, a career soldier, who was married to Nelley (last name unknown,
an Indian), and 2. Betti Johanna BAER (9 February 1897 Malsch - November 1963
New York), married to Joseph HANAU and later divorced.

Max had three children who may have been born in Dayton, Ohio: Sophie Ann,
Richard Dayton, and Helen. Betti was apparently childless. I am interested in
finding out additional data on this branch of my family.

Announcing the next German Jewish History Awards #germany

Arthur Obermayer <obermayer@...>
 

The German-Jewish Community History Council, GerSIG and the Berlin
Parliament are pleased to announce their Call for Nominations for the
annual awards 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.

The deadline for submission of nominations is September 20, 2004.

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 fifth year for such awards, which will be given on
January 27, 2005, the German Holocaust Memorial Day (the anniversary of
the liberation of Auschwitz). 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 awardees will also be honored guests at the German
Bundestag memorial event on that day. 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 news coverage,
including The New York Times, the Associated Press, Jewish Telegraphic
Agency, and a great many German daily and weekly newspapers, as well as
specific articles in American Jewish weeklies. This past year, there
were also articles in the Washington Post, the Miami Herald, and
numerous overseas newspapers, including Ha'aretz and the Jerusalem
Post. There will also be an article in the Summer 2004 issue of Stammbaum.

This 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. 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:

http://www.obermayer.us/award

You may obtain a hard copy of the Call for Nominations by sending an
email to:

germanaward@hotmail.com

or a letter to the German-Jewish Community History Council, 239 Chestnut
Street, West Newton, MA 02465 USA or to Hendrik Kuebler, Referat
Protokoll, Abgeordnetenhaus von Berlin, D-10111 Berlin-Mitte Germany.

Remember that the deadline for submission of nominations is September 20, 2004.

JRI-Poland Research Guide now available in four languages #poland

Stanley Diamond
 

Jewish Records Indexing-Poland is pleased to announce the 2004 edition
of the JRI-Poland Research Guide is now available online -- in four languages.
The guides are in PDF format and may be downloaded >from the home page at
www.jri-poland.org

The English version of the Research Guide has been updated and distributed
each year to attendees at the International Jewish Genealogical Conferences,
as well as made available on our website. We hope the French, Hebrew and
Spanish editions will make it possible for many more family historians with
an interest in Polish Jewish research to become familiar with the activities
of JRI-Poland as well as to learn some of the basic research techniques
outlined in the guide.

On behalf of JRI-Poland I would like to express our sincerest appreciation
to the world-wide group of contributors to the four versions of the
Research Guide. They are:

* Morris Spector, Connecticut, the graphic designer for the Research Guide
since the first of the annual editions was published in 1998.

* Serge Reich and Nicole Berline of France for the French translation.

* Yocheved Klausner of Israel for the Hebrew translation.

* Carlos Glikson of Argentina for the Spanish translation.

* Susan Garfield Shulman of D-Zign, Montreal, for her valued assistance
in the layout of the French and Spanish editions.

And, of course, thanks to our webmaster, Earl Wertheimer for bringing
the guides to life on our website in such a colorful fashion.

We urge all friends of JRI-Poland to bring the Research Guide to the
attention of fellow researchers, family members and friends -- those
active in genealogy as well as others who may not be aware of the
treasures that are available in the Jewish records of Poland.

My apologies.

Yesterday, I made an announcement about the new Express ordering
service and said this service applied to three Polish State
Archives (PSA) branches. Although JRI-Poland and PSA have every
intention of including Lomza in this Pilot program, I was
premature in announcing their inclusion.

At the current time only Bialystok and Lublin are included in the
Pilot program. Lomza will be added at a later date and this will
be announced on this forum.
