How to search with very little to start with #general

Welch Douglas
 

Hello,

I hope this is not a naive-sounding or too general
question. I have never done any Jewish genealogy but I
have done quite a bit of Native American genealogy and I
know how whacky sounding the newbies can be.

Some years ago my grandmother mentioned to my father that
she had some Jewish heritage in her family. This had not
been known to us but my father didn't inquire in detail
about it at the time. She died shortly afterward (she was
in her 90s) and there are no other living family members
to ask that we know. We are wondering how we might go
about researching such a connection for genealogical
purposes.

I'm not prepared with names and dates, unfortunately, at
this very moment but my initial question is pretty
general. In looking at her immediate family tree, nothing
jumps out at me as looking like an obvious Jewish surname
so it's hard to know where to start.

Her mother's maiden surname was Saling and I have seen
this mentioned as a possible Jewish surname on some name
origin lists. I have poked around in the FAQ and found
some references to surnames books but I didn't really see
anything pertaining to my overall question.

Thanks in advance,

Doug Welch

Regarding the list of surname-adoption dates attributed to George ARNSTEIN:
If the date of 1935 is correct, then the source may well be:
Kessler, Gerhard. Die Familiennamen der Juden in Deutschland. Leipzig:

In the event, the list in question, while invaluable, nonetheless
requires a few corrections and amplifications. My comments and
additions are indicated with *** asterisks.

A review of the surname-adoption list for Kurmark Brandenburg (the part
west of the Oder) suggests strongly that the Jews of Berlin had adopted
surnames some time before the Emancipation Edict of 11 March 1812
required them to do so as a condition of obtaining citizenship. Unlike
Jews in other parts of Brandenburg (or Pomerania, Neumark, E. Prussia,
etc.) the Berlin families had far more "after" names identical to their
"before" names, and most of these were not obviously derived >from
patronyms either. The situation is similar for the other large Jewish
community in the region, that of Frankfurt/Oder.

The date of 11 Mar 1812 is itself slightly misleading. Not all of
Prussia was under Prussian control at the time! Not until Napoleon's
retreat did Prussian law obtain in Danzig, for example; there, surnames
were adopted around 1814. http://www.jewishgen.org/Danzig/1814.php has
the surname list.

The legal gazettes that noted the adoption of citizenship (and usually
also the fixed surname) in much of Prussia were published in 1814-15 for
Silesia (except Lower Silesia, the part ruled >from Liegnitz); 1814 for
Pomerania, Kurmark, Neumark, and most of West Prussia; and 1817 for
Danzig. I haven't seen the East Prussian list, and would be grateful
for any information.

As far as I know, there was no published Liegnitz list, but we do have
the 1812 census of Jews in Glogau, where almost all of the Jews in that
area lived. That document includes information about name changes.
(The census of 24 Mar 1812 was generally the basis for the
citizenship/name adoption lists; some of the published lists contain
numberings corresponding to those in the local censuses.)

The southern portion of West Prussia, i.e., the area around Thorn, was
not included in the published West Prussian list. A separate
name-adoption list appeared in 1845, of which I've only seen the typed
transcription at the Leo Baeck Institute. The title of this list
suggests that name-adoption itself only happened then (_Nachweisung des
Regierungs-Bezirks Marienwerder von denjenigen Juden, welche nach der
Allerhoechsten Kabinetts-Ordre vom 31sten October 1845 erbliche
Familien-Namen angenommen haben_), but I'm not sure that was generally
the case there. Again, further information is welcome.

Information about surname-adoption in portions of Germany not listed
above--e.g., Hohenzollern, the rest of Hessen, and Braunschweig--would
make further valuable additions.

JRI-Poland appoints Area Shtetl CO-OP coordinator for Prussian Region #poland

Hadassah Lipsius <kesher@...>
 

Jewish Records Indexing - Poland is pleased to announce that Roger Lustig
of Princeton, NJ has become the Prussia Area Shtetl CO-OP coordinator.

Roger is uniquely qualified to take on this role. Fluent in German and
very knowledgeable about all Prussian records, Roger has not only already
indexed many German-language LDS films for JRI-Poland, but has also
previously handled quality control responsibilities for the work of many
other volunteers in this area.

Anyone with an interest with an interest in joining the JRI-Poland team
to be proofreaders or to index records for their towns in the former German
areas of Poland is urged to contact Roger at: julierog@ix.netcom.com

There are two main sources for Jewish records in the vital records of
the former German area of Poland.

Jewish only records
~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~
There are LDS (Mormon) microfilms of Jewish vital records for more than
240 towns in the former German territories. Indexing these records is a
key component of JRI-Poland's goal to provide indices of all of the
records in the more than 2000 LDS microfilms of Poland and places now
or formerly in Poland. Roger's primary efforts will be concentrating
on these records.

Mixed Jewish and non-Jewish Civil Records
~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~
There are many hundreds of microfilms that cover the years >from 1874 -
ca. 1883 mixed vital records (Jewish and non-Jewish). Experienced and
skilled researchers would be required for the indexing of this effort.
If you are interested in working on these records, contact
prussia_mix@jri-poland.org

The later civil records, ca 1884 to 1905, are in various branches of
the Polish State Archives and are being indexed as part of the PSA
project for each of the branches. More information about the records
for yourtown(s) may be found in the Polish State Archive PRADZIAD database
