Scmul Gronem WASSERMAN #general

Rita
 

I have found an article, which I think is a newspaper, called Paraat. It is
written in Dutch. I think it could contain the name of my grandfather's
brother, Scmul Gronem WASSERMAN, believed to have perished in the holocaust.

I would be grateful if someone who knows Dutch could have a look for me (a
person comes to mind already)

You can do a search for WASSERMAN. I think the name is on page 13.
The heading on the previous page ss Namen, Die Genoemd Zijn. It translates
to Names that are mentioned.

The Moderator has kindly already looked for me & has told me the following:
'I did find a word "opduiken" that means to emerge >from hiding. That
suggests that this is a list of those who emerged >from hiding in Limburg
and Brabant'

Can any one confirm this & if this is the case is there anywhere that anyone
knows of where there might be more information advising what happened to
these people. Did they survive?

The link to Paraat is
http://resources2.kb.nl/010435000/pdf/DDD_010436114.pdf

Thanking you in advance
And many thanks to the Moderator who also was able to supply the link to the
PDF.

Transnistria area - Joint region for Bessarabia SIG and Ukraine SIG #bessarabia

Yefim Kogan
 

Dear researchers,

This is message is specifically for people who have ancestors in the
Transnistria or Pridnestrovie area of Moldova. It is now a self-proclaimed
territory of Transnistria. That area before 1917 belonged to Podolia and
Kherson Gubernia of Russia and in JewishGen it was part of Ukraine Special
Interest Group (Ron Doctor, Coordinator). Bessarabia and Ukraine SIG
recently agreed that this territory will be our Joint responsibility. I
believe that with such arrangement we can be more successful in our research
in that region.

Here are some links to Ukraine SIG, town of Dubossary:
http://www.jewishgen.org/ukraine/GEO_Town.asp?id=18
town of Camenca (Kamenka)
http://www.jewishgen.org/ukraine/GEO_Town.asp?id=18 and town of Tiraspol
http://www.jewishgen.org/ukraine/GEO_Town.asp?id=54 . Jeff Wexler is Town
Leader for Tiraspol, and you can see some information on Tiraspol page and
hope that the new material/data will be developing.

Bessarabia SIG will continue our work in Transnistria region, and hope to
get Cemetery records >from some towns in the region and translate them,
possible photograph the graves. We have finished KehilaLinks website for
Camenca, and soon be finishing for Dubossary. You also can find more
information on this towns in Holocaust section of Bessarabia SIG, and many
photographs >from different towns.

Please let me know if you have any questions.

Re: INTRO - Researching Isak HENSCHKE #germany

Roger Lustig
 

Dear Naomi:
When you say that Isak HENSCHKE was "probably" born in Poznan, may I
assume that you have not obtained his death certificate? I would
recommend that you do that. The Berlin Landesarchiv would be the place
to ask, though they're taking a long time to make registers available
(the law regarding this changed a few years back).

http://www.landesarchiv-berlin.de/lab-neu/01_01c100.htm

If he married in Berlin they will eventually have that record too. Both
marriage and death records should list the place of birth and lots of
other useful stuff, such as the names of parents.

Before doing that, though, see whether you can find where he lived in
Berlin. The Berlin Address Books are on line at

http://adressbuch.zlb.de/

-- but beware! HENSCHKE is not at all
uncommon as a surname among Gentiles in Germany. About 1,000 of them in
the phone book today.

Through the Jewish Community of Berlin you may be able to find out where
he was born, because that information was often included in the burial
registers at Weissensee cemetery.

http://www.jg-berlin.org/judentum/friedhoefe.html

Next, do you mean Poznan the city or Posen the former province?

Have you looked in NALDEX, GerSIG's own database of surname adoptions?

http://www.jewishgen.org/databases/Germany/

You'll find exactly one HENSCHKE family, in Neumark, Kreis (county)
Loebau in West Prussia. The listing shows all family members as of
1845. That's the only HENSCHKE mentioned in Lars Menk's _Dictionary of
German-Jewish Surnames_, too. Not Posen Province, but not terribly far
away either.

Finally, and most important of all: register your interest in the
HENSCHKE family with the JewishGen Family Finder!

http://www.jewishgen.org/jgff/

And then contact the two other HENSCHKE researchers who are listed there.

Good luck, and let us know what you find!

What happened to German Jews: Communities Initiative [New Database Proposal] #germany

Lande
 

It is estimated that in 1933, when Hitler came into power, there were
roughly 600,000 Jews resident in Germany. Yet only 160,000 names appear in
the Gedenkbuch, and, even taking into account survivor name lists which appear
in various books, less than half of the 1933 population is accounted for.

In the 1960s, the International Tracing Service (ITS) attempted to deal with
this "mystery". ITS wrote to all West German communities asking them to list:

a) all Jews (as defined by the Nuernberg laws) resident in the community in
1933, and
b) to the extent known, what happened to them, i.e. deported, emigrated,
moved, etc.

Several hundred replies were received, alphabetically ranging >from Aachen to
Zweibruecken, but these have never been made public. (Berlin was not included.)

While the replies vary widely in format and scope, and some merely list
those who were deported, many provide a wealth of previously unavailable
information such as family relationships, street addresses, emigration
destinations, etc.

Those of us who only knew the family town of origin may be surprised
to find that an individual moved elsewhere in Germany or emigrated to
Paraguay. Many responses came >from Kreis officials and included
information on more than one town, e.g. the Alfeld (Leine) response
includes information on Elze, Freden, Gronau, Lamspringe, Netze and
Nordstemmen.

What is needed is a single searchable database which includes information
from all of the responses.
Working with another volunteer, we have entered all the responses where the
community begins with the letter A but, obviously, we need help if this
massive project, community by community, is to be completed.

At this point all I ask for are (non-binding) responses indicating a
willingness to participate, i.e. enter names and other information into
Excel spread sheets.

If I get sufficient positive responses at pdlande@starpower.net we
shall go ahead. Participants will receive community material and format
instructions. Knowledge of German would be helpful but little is needed
more than perhaps twenty words such as deportiert, verzogen, emigriert,
Tochter and Vater.

At this point, please do not ask me whether your favorite town is
included--I would be swamped --and be aware that for organizational purposes
we will proceed alphabetically. I hope that everyone's favorite towns begin
the letter B.

Vienna IKG Cemetery database: problem with absent entries #austria-czech

Peter.Lowe@...
 

It appears that the excellent database
(http://friedhof.ikg-wien.at/search.asp) listing burials in the Vienna
Zentralfriedhof (and elsewhere) is not showing up burials that were
previously available.

Does someone know what is wrong, or who maintains the database?

As an example, this entry was found a while back:
Ranschburg Berta 64 Year(s) 10/20/1924 10/23/1924 ZENTRALFRIEDHOF IV.
TOR 10 2 4

Today, I could not find this entry. I tried by searching under the
surname alone, or by first name and cemetery, or by searching for
burials in IV. Tor and refining by row 2 and Grave 4. Indeed I did not
find any burials when I searched for Gruppe 10, though plenty if I
search for any burials in Gruppe 10a.

I found another minor problem, that when I had a list of results that
was more than one page long, I could not use the arrows to move to
another page.

Hopefully someone can explain the problem.

Thanks

Reading old German script #austria-czech

I have been pursuing the Czech online records for Radenin in search of
some ancestors and need a second opinion on a records if anyone has time: If
this not the place to post this, please let me know and if it is advisable,
reply to me privately. I've already had to update my AOL to be able to
compose in plain text and eliminated the hyperlink.

http://www.badatelna.cz/fond/1073

Go to Inventar--third tab in with a book icon next to it.

Go to page 19/30 to Radenin and click the small circle next to the name

In the second batch of records (1749) click on the icon of three small
squares below the O-N-Z

Go to page 27/76

I'm most interested in the fourth entry on the left page for 28 Marz 1822

What I have been able to tease out so far (I can read old English, but am
just learning old German) is that the last name of the child is Deutsch.
What is the first name? The father seems to be Markus Deutsch, handelsmann
in Radenin, son of Moses Deutsch and ??? >from ???
Mother's name appears to me to be Zelda, daughter of Markus Fink? and
looks like the same mother's name as the column to the left.

Am I anywhere close in transcribing this record?

Any help appreciated

Occupants at an address #austria-czech

family@...
 

Greetings.

I have two postcards, both dated 1899, sent to my grandmother, Valerie
SINGER (DOB: 28 July 1882), at Wien I, Fleischmarkt 1. Her parents'
Meldezettel record that Valerie, an only child, moved with her parents,
Emmanuel and Julie Singer, to Wien 2, Praterstrasse 41, in February 1892.
Valerie's change of address is given in a subsequent Meldezettel when she
married Leopold POLLITZER in March 1907; she then lived at Wien 6,
Mollardgasse 38. Is it possible to learn who was also living at
Fleischmarkt 1 in 1899?
