Peggy Freedman <peggyf@...>
 

The Vilnius District Research Group has translated more vital records
for the period of time that Vilnius / Wilno was part of Poland! We now
have the records >from 1928 to 1930 for marriages (482 records) and for
deaths (2284 records).The translations of these records are available to
qualified contributors on our Shutterfly site.

The most common surnames in the marriage records and the number of times
that they appear are LEWIN (18), GORDON (14), GURWICZ (12), KAC (11),
SZAPIRO (10), ABRAMOWICZ (8), KAGAN (6), RABINOWICZ (6), BERMAN (5),
JOFFE (5) and SZUSTER (5).

The most common surnames in the death records are similar: LEWIN (51),

EPSZTEJN (16), RABINOWICZ (16), ABRAMOWICZ (15), KAPLAN (12), SEGAL
(12), SZNEJDER (11).

You can download a complete list of all the surnames in the City of
Vilnius records at:

Josef SILBERBERG - Froendenberg and Washington #usa

Mike Redel <redel.mike@...>
 

Dear Gersigs

I am searching for Josef SILBERBERG. He was born 14.02.1844 in
Froendenberg (Germany) and died 28.08.1935 in Washington. 1865 he
emigrated to the USA. in the years 1875, 1912, 1914 he visited
Germany. I know also that he was a printer. I found out that he was
single in 1900 (Census). 1912 and 1914 he was married (passanger
list). When did he married and whom? I know the date when he died from
his tomb. I never found an official papier, because I hope to find
something about his wife or parents.

Thank you, Regards, Mike Redel - Unna Germany

Understanding a Nazi era German document - no translation needed ViewMate #germany

Tamar Amit <ta.genealogy@...>
 

Dear siggers,

A few months ago I saw some documents that start out with this page. I
assume it was connected in some way to the Nazis wanting to have a
"profile" of the Jewish population in Germany.
I have uploaded one such "opening page" to ViewMate and would be happy
to hear >from any of you who have encountered them or know what they
were, would they exist for any Jewish-German citizen, and so on.

The image for BECKER Itzig (born in Tuchel and living at the time in
Berlin) is at:
http://www.jewishgen.org/viewmate/viewmateview.asp?key=VM42825

Please respond via the form provided in the ViewMate application or
privately to me.

Many thanks, Tamar Amit in Israel

Researching: ABT/APT, BALLIN, GOTTLIEB, all in Hesse;
BECKER, LEVY in Tuchel (Tuchola) & Danzig (Gdansk).

Re: Tracking immigration to Israel #general

The Mandatory Citizenship file is twenty-eight pages and you can download it.

http://www.archives.gov.il/ArchiveGov/archiveSearch.htm

Talk to me on Skype and I'll walk you through it, if you don't read Hebrew.

Is there any information system that tracks immigrants who have come

could I research that?

This is an entire branch of the family we have lost track of, and I
would love to find them.

Family JOSEPH (Kirn, Ger > Cali, Colombia) #germany

Barbara Mannlein <bsmannlein@...>
 

My husband's grandmother was Auguste DORNHARD, b. 1877 in
Hennweiler, d. 1944, NYS. She immigrated to the US in 1898.

We know almost nothing of her antecedents. Her mother may have been a
Johanna or Jeanette. Have no idea of her father's name.

Per immigration records she was visited several times by a "nephew"
Alexander JOSEPH (b.1899-1941 NY). Alexander's line below:


1. Gustav JOSEPH (b.1866) oo Rosina SCHOLEM. Both murdered in SHOAH.
Their 3 children were:

2. Sally JOSEPH (1896-1961) oo Melitta STERN JOSEPH (1898 -1950)

3. Erich JOSEPH (1925- 1973)
3. Rolf JOSEPH (1926 - ?
Erich and parents are buried in the Jewish cemetery there.
2. Alexander JOSEPH (1899-1941NYC)
3. Felix JOSEPH oo Lotte SUMMER
(1905-SHOAH) (1906-1995,NY)

I'd like to learn how the JOSEPHs are related to Auguste, if
there are any descendants, and what happened to Rolf JOSEPH.

Any ideas on how to contact the Jewish Community of Cali? Any records
of genealogical interest?

Family WOLFF of Gollin, Germany #germany

Barbara Mannlein <bsmannlein@...>
 

I am seeking information on a Leo WOLFF (b. 1918) of Gollin, Germany.
His daughter told me that he never spoke of his life in Germany.
All her mother knew was
1. his family was the only Jewish family in the area.
2. they were farmers.
3. his family (parents' names not known) were murdered
in the SHOAH
4. he had a sister named Ilse, who she thinks was married.
5. when the Nazis ordered that the Jews report at a specific
time and date he showed up and spent some time in Sachsenhausen.
6. Somehow, on release, he made it to Great Britain where he
died in 2003.

Are there any records >from Gollin? How may they be accessed?

Thanks, Barbara Stern Mannlein Tucson, Arizona bsmannlein@comcast.net
