Thank-you to Gersig Member Ines Gurske #germany

Dear Fellow Members

I noticed that Judith Elam in her message about Emigration >from Berlin
in 1940/41 thanked Ines Gurske. I, too, have been the beneficiary of
Ms Gurske's kindness in helping in my family research, and I hope that
it is in order for me to publicly thank her.

SITE CITE - History of the Jews of Aschaffenburg, Bavaria BOOK CITE #germany

Werner Hirsch
 

The history of the Jews of Aschaffenburg, Bavaria, and the surrounding towns
which were served by the rabbinate of Aschaffenburg, was written by Rabbi
Salomon Bamberger and published by Josef Singer, Strassburg in 900.

The title is: "Historiche Berichte ueber die Juden der Stadt und des
ehemalige Fuerstentums Aschaffenburg."

The book is written in German, Hebrew, and Judeo-German. An index to the
names in the book, which I don't think has been previously available,
follows the original text.

I have uploaded the book to the Internet, and you can find it here:

Special Announcement - Series of Articles by Lisa Thaler #germany

Groll, Avraham
 

We are pleased to announce that author and family historian Lisa Thaler
will be contributing a series of articles to the JewishGen blog
(<www.JewishGen.blogspot.com>) entitled "Framing History: Sacha Kolin
in The Rose Art Museum's Permanent Collections."

Lisa spent ten years uncovering the life story and oeuvre of the Jewish
emigre artist Sacha Kolin (1911 Paris-1981 New York). Her groundbreaking
research methods are demonstrated in her biography Look Up: The Life and
Art of Sacha Kolin (New York: Midmarch Arts Press, 2008).

from the mid-1960s, campus museums acquired hundreds of Kolins,
including 32 artworks at Brandeis University's The Rose Art Museum.
The University's announcement on January 26, 2009, later modified, to
deaccession its art collection generated fervent commentary.

In this three-part series "Framing History," Lisa places the academic
museum in historical context, explaining the economic policies and
social factors that fueled the explosive growth of campus museums in
this era, and highlighting the archival records generated by the museum
community. Family historians may apply these strategies to any
occupation and to conduct cross-disciplinary studies.

The "framing history" articles will be posted on the JewishGen blog
(<www.JewishGen.blogspot.com>) beginning Friday, March 27th. Enjoy!

Search request in Schirdam or Schiedam Holland (Netherlands) #general

Debby Gincig Painter
 

I am trying to determine when my Great-Grandmother passed away and my Great-
Grandfather remarries. She probably died between 1913 (birth of last child) and
1919 in Strasbourg or more likely Schiedam/Schirdam. The family went there in 1914
from Strasbourg when WWI breaks out. A record for alien registration found in
Strasbourg shows him leaving there in 1914 (no note of rest of family). Family
history says they come back to Strasbourg after war, decide to "remain" German and
by 1920 are in Dortmund, Germany where he is already married to wife #3 (source:
Dortmund census).

Had an idea that might help narrow the date and place of her death. Is there
someone who help me locate a marriage certificate for her daughter Ryfke "Regina"
Klinger b abt 1901 in Pitrokov, Poland and Fizsel "Philip" Faktor b. abt 1894 in
Lodz, Poland. They would have married in 1917 (1930 US Census) or 1918 (family
history). Her father was Mosiek Srul "Max" Klinger and listed mother would be
either Anna (nee Joskowitz) Klinger (b. July 07, 1879 Pietrokov, Poland) or Nisle
(nee Levi) Klinger (b. Aug 28 1881 Konigshofen, Alsace - Stepmother). His parents
were Daniel and Frejndla (nee Sarkowska) Faktor. They had a son (Bernard) there
on July 01, 1919. Perhaps there might even be a death certificate for Anna
Joskowitz Klinger in either Strasbourg or Schiedam that might be found?

If the actual documents cannot be duplicated, the information they contain would be
very helpful.

Thank you,
Debby Painter

For those of you who are unfamiliar with commemorative booklets and blue books,
please go to the JewishGen Blog where you will find my article about these very
helpful genealogical tools: http://www.jewishgen.blogspot.com

Due to an increasing digitized on-line presence for these items, it is easier for
researchers to access them. These are items which focus on documenting synagogues,
organizations and clubs, landsmannschaftn and other institutions in the Jewish
community. They very often provide histories, names, addresses, businesses,
yahrheit dates and the ability to connect several generations in a family just by
the data provided.

For those who have found little in terms of information about their families in
other more traditional resources, this may be just the ticket for you to locate
data you need.
