Dr. Eduard BLOCH of Frauenberg (Hluboka nad Vltavou) #austria-czech

Does anyone know the genealogy of Hitler's family physician Dr. Eduard BLOCH
of Frauenberg (Hluboka nad Vltavou), b. 30 Jan 1872 - d. 1 June 1945? See
http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Eduard_Bloch My BLOCH family comes >from pretty
nearby in Ckyne, so, even though it's a common name, I wondered if there
might be a connection.

FW: Translation of 1819 Polish Death Certificate #poland

Martin Davis <mmedavis@...>
 

I would be grateful for an accurate translation of the death certificate of
my ancestor Sara Dawidowicz who died in Dzialoszyn, Kalisz Province in
1819. I have a rough translation but think I am missing points. For instance
I understand that her son Moziek is recorded as an Arendarz (leaseholder
/ innkeeper?) but do not understand the meaning of the word before that and
other details such as her age do not quite sound right in my translation.


The file has been placed on the ViewMate site

Fw: Pogroms and Epidemics in 19th Century Poland #lodz #poland

Alex P. Korn <apkorn@...>
 

Hello Howie and Fellow Lodz Area Researchers,

In the book, "Cholera" by Barua and Greenough, which I link below, it is
reported that there was indeed a cholera epidemic in Poland in that time
range. Note the statement on page 13 in the lower third of the page:
"cholera (in Poland) was prevalent in 1873-1874".

http://books.google.ca/books?id=HRwGkfyNv6AC&pg=PA13&lpg=PA13&dq=%22cholera+epidemic%22+%2B%22in+Poland%22&source=bl&ots=9AIkBmz-6O&sig=qV2pmpttkXR7oFEzwcN6gMa9Mok&hl=en&ei=xiQ2StjCGpLyMuur-ZkK&sa=X&oi=book_result&ct=result&resnum=4

A more intensive search will reveal more detail of the various epidemics
that plagued Poland.

Subject: [lodz] Pogroms and Epidemics in 19th Century Poland


My great great grandparents died within four days of each other in
November/December of 1872, in Piotrkow Trybunalski, Poland. Their
death records do not indicate causes of death. When they died, my
great great grandfather and great great grandmother were 55 years of
age and 45 years of age, respectively. It appears unlikely to me that
they would both die of natural causes within four days of each other,
at those ages. Because of the short time span between their deaths,
my guess is that they both died >from either an accident, an epidemic
(cholera or influenza), or a pogrom. I think the two latter options
are probably the more likely causes of death.

I was wondering if anyone is aware of any records or research done
regarding timeframes of pogroms or epidemics in 19th century Poland,
or more specifically in Piotrkow Trybunalski, Poland in 1872.

Thanks,

Quellen zur Geschichte der Juden in Polnischen Archiven #germany

Lande
 

The last two volumes in the Quellen set relate to holdings of archives in
parts of Poland which previously had been German.

The format is the same as the other volumes, i.e. organized by geographical
location, with Personen and Orts (people and places) Registers.

They contain a wealth of information as illustrated by the following:

Elbing birth and marriage lists 1812-1863
Danzig birth and marriage lists 1847-1880
Rogasen housing problems 1886-1920
Breslau Nazi property seizures organized by names of persons whose property
was seized
Oppeln naturalization of Jews 1822-1830
