2. Is Prasseditz also Prossnitz or is this a different place entirely?
Prasseditz (the correct German name was Prosetitz)/Prosetice in old district
Teplitz/Teplice in Bohemia.

Republic:
Prossnitz/Prostejov (e with a diacritic tickmark over the letter), old
district Prossnitz/Prostejov in Moravia,
Klein Prossnitz/Prostejovicky (e and c with diacritic tickmarks) in old
district Prossnitz/Prostejov in Moravia,
Prossnitz/Vrazice (z with a diacritic tickmark) in old district Boemisch (oe
= correct o with two points over the letter = Umlaut) Krumau/Cesky (C with a

that's very nice, but please note:

1) not a *single one* of the codes listed displays correctly on a macintosh.=
they range >from euro currency symbols to upside down exclamation marks. =
the only two that are even close are "e" and "i", and even they are=
capitals, instead of lower case, and the accents go the wrong way (grave=
instead of acute). all these codes seem to be windows-specific.

2) they are not completely correct for hungarian orthography. the use of=
the tilde and circumflex (why not just one or the other?) is a kluge=
because the double acute is not commonly available.

3) it takes only a few minutes to get used to putting the accents after the=

The Holdings of the Reichssippenamt - Questions #germany

Henry Wellisch <henry.kelwel@...>
 

I recently came across two books, the first was "Das Reichssippenamt,
eine Institution der Nationalsozialistischen Rassenpolitik" by Diana
Schulle and the second was "Inventar archivalischer Quellen des
NS-Staates" by Heinz Boberach. Both these books, as well as the
website of the Bundesarchiv confirm that certain holdings of this Nazi
institution have been preserved and are located in the Bundesarchiv in
Potsdam. Among the holdings are 146 microfilms containing the
"Personalstandsunterlagen" of 120 Jewish Communities in East, West Prussia and
Silesia, with copies of these films at the Jewish museum in Frankfurt.

I have a number of questions and I wonder if anyone has an answer:
1. Are these "Personalstandsunterlagen" identical with birth, marriage
and death registers? If not what are they?
2. Are these microfilms identical with those on German Jewish
communities available >from the Family History Library (Mormons)?
3. Are the films at the Bundesarchiv and the Frankfurt museum covered
by the German privacy law (Datenschutz)?
4. Has anyone ever looked at these films?

Bad Salzungen Jewish Community & Roeschen SCHMIDT nee EISEMANN #germany

Ralph Baer
 

I am writing to ask if anyone has researched the Bad Salzungen Jewish community.

I have written before enquiring about my EISEMANN family ancestors. New
information is causing me to ask a related question. My great-great-great-
grandmother Roeschen SCHMIDT nee EISEMANN was born about 1812 in an unknown place.
She married on 16 December 1839 to Seligmann SCHMIDT of Grosskrotzenburg near
Hanau, Hessen. She died on 19 March 1872 in Grosskrotzenburg.

Her parents were Gumpel EISEMANN and Vogele. There is no indication of Roeschen's
birthplace on any document which I have seen.

In response to an earlier query, I learned that there was a Gumpel EISEMANN living
in Barchfeld (Werra) in 1720. (Barchfeld was once in Hessen. It is now in
Thueringen.) While this Gumpel was born much too early to have been the father of
a woman born about 1812, he conceivably could have been the grandfather or great-
grandfather of the Gumpel whom I am looking for. A search of the 19th century
vital records of Barchfeld did not turn up EISEMANNs still living there in the
19th century. It is still quite possible that the Gumpel mentioned in 1720 was
my ancestor, and the family was somewhere else in the 19th century.

Recent research at the LBI resulted in my noting that there were EISEMANN families
living in Bad Salzungen in more recent times. Bad Salzungen is a larger place
than Barchfeld and less than five miles away. It seems to be a logical place for
people to have moved.

I add that there is an entry in the FTJP showing EISEMANNs in Bad Salzungen who
earlier lived in Bauerbach, Baden. If this is indeed where the Bad Salzungen
EISEMANNs came from, then it is less likely to be my family.

to respond individually but that unfortunately will be impossible. If you
have any specific question that I have not answered since July 1, 2005, please
ask me again and I'll answer if I can.

I hope to be back in the saddle more fully in a few weeks, and to
