USS Gen. Sturgis, Transport of Displaced Persons #germany

Alex Magocsi
 

The [ship] US General Sturgis transported numerous Displaced Persons
between Bremerhaven and Halifax, Nova Scotia, Canada.

The transport I am interested in arrived Halifax on or about
14 February 1948.

How and where might I find when this ship departed Bremerhaven?

Thank you for your feedback

Stuttgart Main Railroad Station: 1948 #germany

Alex Magocsi
 

Early in 1948, a group of "children" >from the Aglasterhausen Displaced
Children's Home traveled to Flandern Kaserne in Stuttgart in preparation
for their voyage to & resettlement in, Canada.
(Note: Flandern Kaserne became the US Army's Robinson Barracks)
They next traveled by train >from Stuttgart to Bremerhaven.

I assume the children departed Stuttgart >from the Main Station.
Was the Stuttgarter Hauptbahnhof / Main Station operational
at that point? It was reportedly heavily damaged.
Or did the children depart >from an alternate US Military station?
If so, which one?

Perhaps someone can answer my questions or point me to
an applicable web site.

Thank you, Alex Magocsi awmjr@...

Re: Name adoption/change conventions during Napoleonic occupation of the Rhineland #germany

This may be redundant of source cited but half of my paternal family
lived west of the Rhine and in every case both old patronymic and
new first and last names are listed.

Often first names were changed to more French names, I found this
more common among females.

In some cases the last names were hardly distinguishable as Jewish.
In my Loeb family there were several in the same town who chose
Jakob as a new first name so these Jakob Loebs were followed
by I, II or III to distinguish them.

My great grandfather was known as Jakob Loeb I. As you know, half
the fun is they were written in French using the French Republican calendar.

A little more on Baden's on-line records #germany

Roger Lustig
 

Dear all:

Having used the Collection 390 (Karlsruhe) and L10 (Freiburg) on-line
Baden vital records quite a bit, let me add a few more points.

1) These are duplicate registers, i.e., annual copies handed in to the
local government. They are bound together year by year.

2) It was not necessarily a Christian clergyman keeping the Jewish records.

3) Universal civil registration began in Baden on Feb. 1, 1870 and
adopted the German Empire's standard forms on Jan. 1, 1876.

4) The whole "conversion" misunderstanding may have been exacerbated by
FamilySearch and Ancestry, which have indexed zillions of these records
and called many if not all the Jewish ones "Lutheran"--including the
9-volume Jewish-only set for Mannheim. I have pointed this out to the
organizations involved.
