WALTUCH first world war records #general

Kay Sharpe
 

Hi all. Would anyone know how I can find out if my grandfather fought in the First
World War? He was born in Zagrabela near Tarnopol in Poland now Ternopol in
Ukraine. His name was Wilhelm Wolf WALTUCH rn 1889 to Wechne ISSERSOHN
and Sussman WALTUCH. I think he was living in Vienna at the time possibly
Favoritenstrasse 12

FTDNA, Geni.com and the AustriaCzech SIG #austria-czech

E. Randol Schoenberg
 

This week, FamilyTreeDNA and Geni.com announced a joint program to
integrate dna with the family trees on Geni. Because so many of us in
the Austria-Czech SIG are on Geni, and the tree is so densely populated,
I think this might be a great way for us to make further advances.

If you have taken a dna test with ftdna, please upload the data to your
Geni account. For instructions, see the blog at
https://www.geni.com/blog/geni-adds-dna-to-the-world-family-tree-394127.html

For those who have tested at 23andme and Ancestry, or elsewhere, you can
also upload your raw data to Geni. The processing will take a while so
the autosomnal results may not show up for a month or so.

We=E2=80=99ll have to see how this plays out, but here is how I think it
might work for us. Let=E2=80=99s say you have a branch of your tree
that traces back to a certain ancestral town, and the trees for the
people >from that town are well filled out and interconnected. You may
come up with a autosomnal dna match with someone who has no apparent
direct blood relationship on the tree, but when you use the Geni
relationship finder, you may discover that the person is a cousin of a
cousin and that your families both lived in that town. This relationship
path might help you identify a likely location for the match. It gives
you a clue which direction to look for finding the common ancestor.
Without the interconnected World Family Tree on Geni, you may ever have
found that clue, so this could be a unique tool.

Feel free to post any success (or non-success) stories to the SIG so we
can all learn >from each other's experiences.

assistance at Zentralfriedhof Vienna #austria-czech

My wife and I just returned >from a trip to Vienna. We went to the
cemetery to visit my grandfather's, great-grandfather's and great
grandmother's grave sites.
We were assisted in our search- though we had grave locations already
from JOWBRR- by Chaim Tetruashvili. He had been mentioned in a previous
post as a person who is in the office and available to assist in grave
site searches. I corresponded with him in advance.
He was available for us, reviewed my names and the locations in his
database. Then he walked with us, through this huge cemetery, to all of
our family sites. He even went with us to an older section, which is
very poorly marked-Tor 1- to look for two more sites, and he was
successful as well.
Anyone who is planning a visit should definitely communicate with him.
He is eager to be of help and feels very good about
his ability to assist people in visiting their family grave sites. He is
an asset to those of us looking for our families.

Re: Kasniercy or Kasnierey?? #hungary

Alicia Weiss
 

Greetings,

A Sh'arit ha-pl'atah entry for one of my ancestors lists his birthplace as
Kasniercy. I have assumed this is an error in transcription or communication, as
I do not receive any hits on Google for such a place.

I have been under the impression he was born in Kaposmero, but perhaps I am
mistaken

An "Additional List of Buchenwald Survivors" notes his last known place as
Kasnierey, which I am also unable to identify. The only Google hits I get for this
spelling are other references to this record. Can anyone suggest the correct name
of a town in Hungary to which this might refer?

Thanks very much in advance,

Vienna to Budapest in 1938 - records? #hungary

tompa@...
 

Many Hungarian Jews were deported to Hungary soon after Austria's
Anschluss by Germany in March 1938. This was the case for my father
and his brother and parents in 1938. Being Hungarian, it wasn't a
matter of choosing where to flee: they weren't given a choice of where
to be deported. In the case of my father and his brother, they were
arrested, escorted on a train to the Hungarian border at Sopron by
police, and told to cross the border and never return.

From: joelonstein@hotmail.com

X-Message-Number: 1

Dear SIG members,

Two family members with Hungarian roots left their long-time home of
Vienna for Budapest in late 1938. Both later died in Budapest (one in
early 1939 soon after arriving, the other in the ghetto in 1945).
I've seen their death records in the civil registration books on the
LDS website, which included the names of their parents, age at death,
and last home addresses in Budapest. What, if any, other records in
Budapest might I find for them? Was there anything like Viennese
Meldezettel in Budapest at that time? Would they have had to fill out
any civil forms in Budapest or register with the local Jewish
Community after they arrived in 1938? Were there full death
certificates issued that might have more information than what's in
the civil registration books on the LDS films? I'm most interested in
their birthplaces, if there were relatives in Budapest (which
compelled them to go there), and next of kin at the time of death.
I'm also curious - was it common for Jews in Vienna to flee for
Budapest in 1938?

Thanks for any suggestions,

Seattle Conference! #france

Rosanne Leeson
 

Dear fellow FrenchSIGgers,

The Seattle Conference in only a month away. To date there has been
only one response to my earlier message asking for feedback on how many
of you are planning to attend.

We now have 895 members. I find this lack of response appalling!
Hopefully some of you have now decided to come, so I am posting this
note to once again ask for your feedback. A SIG meeting is scheduled
for Tuesday morning. We would like to display a recent project created
by one of our members, and find others who would be willing to work to
create more such. Thanks to our Cemetery Coordinator, Eric Feinstein
many thousands of French burial records have been added to JOWBR. But,
there is so much more that can be done to help all of those who are
researching family >from France, Belgium, Luxembourg, etc.

In addition, Pierre and I have been Coordinating this SIG since its
inception - nearly 20 years! We are now in our 80's and would very much
like to turn over the jobs to younger members. We would remain as
Emeritus, for perhaps a year, to train our successors. One person in
France has spoken up , but more help than that is needed if this is to
remain a viable SIG. The only alternative is for this SIG to become
inactive, which would be a very sad matter, as judging by the messages
sent, so many need/wish for help in our areas.

If you have used the resources of the FrenchSIG , and would like to see
it continue and grow, please do let us hear >from you! Come to Seattle
and come to our SIG meeting!

We hope to hear >from you soon!

Fw: Intro - Researching WEIL family from Alsace, probably Strasbourg #germany

Kate Weil
 

Hello GerSig,
I just joined the group. I have been doing genealogy research for 1.5 years.
I consider myself to be an advanced beginner in doing German Jewish
Genealogy research. I live in New York City. My native language is English
and I also know French and Italian. I consider myself intermediate in using
a computer. My experience in using the Internet is extensive.

I have identified the names and birth and death dates of all 4 of my
grandparents, all 8 of my great grandparents but only 6 of my great
great grandparents. (I do have all the names of my great great grandparents.)

My primary research goals now are to find out:
Did my great grandfather Leon Weil, a butcher supposedly >from Strasbourg
who emigrated in 1866 at age 18, have any siblings, and where did he
and his parents (Solomon Weil and Fannie Stern Weil) come from?
(All censuses and certificates say "France")

My JGFF Researcher ID number is 692395.

The family names and ancestral towns that I have entered in the JGFF
(JewishGen Family Finder) are:

WEIL >from Strasbourg, France, to NYC in 1866, butcher, settled first
in Brooklyn.

Moderator Note:
Welcome to GerSIG, Kate. You should also join FrenchSIG and post your
message there. Many GerSIG members including two of our co-founders
have WEIL ancestors >from the same area. Use the archive search feature
to learn about them and their work. WEIL is a very common name. Your
archive search should use both the name and some other word to limit the
search results.

Site cite for accessing archival documents of Bydgoszczy and Torun (was part of Prussia) #poland

Tamar Amit <ta.genealogy@...>
 

Hi All,

I recently wrote to the Bydgoszcz archive regarding accessing online
two of their collections (Tuchola & Lubiewo).

They replied within a few days with the following site which I believe
would be very useful for many of you:
https://www.genealogiawarchiwach.pl/

You can press the English flag on top to have the basics translated.

The site holds partial scanned collections >from the following archives:
* Archiwum Panstwowe w Bydgoszczy
* Archiwum Panstwowe w Bydgoszczy Oddzial w Inowroclawiu
* Archiwum Panstwowe w Toruniu
* Archiwum Panstwowe w Toruniu Oddzial we Wloclawku

The years available (for what I searched) are 1874-1911. Not all years
are available online and sometimes there is a partial ledger / index.
The documents are in Polish or German (depending on dates and specific
ledger) and are mostly very legible.

It does help to know a few words in Polish to navigate the site better.
(I don't speak German or Polish) but managed quite well with knowing
basic words such as births, deaths etc. as well as the basic structure
of each document)

There are at least 2 general ways to search the site:
1) Using the top search bar (default or advanced modes)
or
2) Filtering (more or less) via the left panel after executing any
sort of query. The elements chosen and filtered by are shown near the
top and you can remove any of them by clicking the relevant "x".

Please note that you can search by names but the results would only be
retrieved for the parts of the collections that were already
transcribed (and would therefor be only partial).

A possible way to search is via location (without names) - just by
looking page by page (sometimes with the help of an old existing
scanned index) through the various files, you can find genealogical
treasures.

I did :)
I managed to break down several brick walls and add 2 more generations
to a very stubborn branch of my tree !
