Dear fellow Rom-SIGgers,

I have received in my email an obvious Spam message. It simply states
that they have met some "Interesting people ..." And has a link to see
their names. The sender purports to be "Romania Sig"

Please do NOT open this message, but delete immediately! I have
notified JewishGen.

JRI Poland #Poland Major update for towns of Klimontow and Bogoria #poland

chatz@...
 

As the JRI-Poland Town Leader for Klimontow and Bogoria (Sandomierz
province), I am pleased to announce that a major upgrade has been
made to the data available for those towns in JRI-Poland's searchable
online database. Not only have all the outstanding years between 1826
and 1912 been indexed and added (amounting to thousands of new entries),
but corrections have been made to numerous entries previously
available.

The most exciting news, however, is the addition of links to
digitally scanned images of nearly all the 12000 Klimontow records
and 3000 Bogoria records held in the Polish State Archives. This will
allow individual researchers to verify the information provided
through the indexes and supplement it with all the additional detail
recorded in the original acts.

I'd like to thank Steven Zedeck, Michael Tobias, and Howard Fink for
facilitating the new upload.

I'd be happy to field any general questions >from people interested in
these two towns.

Cemeteries in Riga and Friedredstadat #general

Moshe Schaeffer
 

My great grand parents were born in Friedredstadat. My great great grand
father was killed by being hit by a car in 1913 in Riga I believe he was
buried in Riga I understand the cemetery in Riga was destroyed by the
Nazis. I was wondering if there might be any place that there are photos
of the cemetery before it was destroyed? I all so don't know where his
wife died and thought she might be buried in Friedredstadat and that
there might be other family there. Was there a cemetery in
Friedredstadat if so does it still exist if not might there be photos of
it some where? Thank you for your help in this matter.

Traditional Jewish headstone craftspeople in and around Poland #general

John Crust
 

I'm doing research on an old Jewish cemetery in Warta, Poland. As part
of my research, I would like to learn more about the work involved in
making these traditional Jewish headstones in and around Poland. I
would be very interested in speaking with any descendants of the
craftspeople who made these headstones, or matzevot, as they are
commonly known. Thank you.

Otto Georg RATZ and his son Andreas RATZ #germany

Shaul Sharoni
 

Dear Siggers,

I have stumbled upon a brick wall searching for the following people:

Otto Georg RATZ, born 22.3.1917 in Szekesfehervar, Hungary, immigrated to
Austria and eventually to Germany in 1949 in the post-WWII era. He was
lawyer by profession and a well-known soccer coach. Died in Basel,
Switzerland in 2000. His parents' names were Samuel RACZ and Szeren Fodor.

His son, Andreas RATZ, born 1944 (most likely in Budapest), was a lawyer
in Munich and also died in 2000.

I'm looking for any traces of these two in terms of exact date of death,
place of burial as well as any living next of kin.

Best Regards, Shaul Sharoni in Israel <shaul.sharoni@...>


(Sweden) ArkivDigital Free Offer March 18-19, 2017 #general

Jan Meisels Allen
 

It's not Genealogy Day in Sweden, but ArkivDigital is offering free access
to their database on March 18-19, 2017. While their notice did not suggest
a start time and end time, it is presumed to be on Swedish time. To convert
to your local time use:
https://www.timeanddate.com/worldclock/converter-classic.html

The website is in both English and Swedish.

This is for new customers and for base customers. There are census indexes
where you can search by name which are powerful tools that make your
research much easier. Examples of the registers include:
Population of Sweden 1880-1920
Population of Sweden 1950 and 1960 Information form the country's tax
registers
Swedes in the US 1940-an extraction >from the US 1940 census

If you have not registered with ArkivDigital previously you will need to do
so with your name, email address, street address and town, country, and
password. No credit card information is required.
See: https://www.arkivdigital.net/users/register

Once you have registered, start the program but you will have to download
their web-based software, ArkivDigital 2.0. They recommend the Chrome browser
for optimal performance, but you can also use Firefox, Safari and Edge.

Please go to this website page and follow the directions.
https://www.arkivdigital.net/products/adonline/try-for-free

If you think you might not have ancestors >from Sweden, there have been Jews
in Sweden since the early 1700s. albeit a small population. Sweden opened
its doors to Jews during WWII and again in 1956 when Jews were fleeing
Hungary and then again when fleeing Communists in 1968. According to the
Jewish Virtual Library the Jewish population increased tremendously between
1850 and 1920 due to immigration >from Russia and Poland. The population
reached nearly 6,500 in 1920. Small groups of German, Austrian, and Czech
Jews were allowed to immigrate to Sweden during the 1930's. Once the Nazi
brutalities were known Sweden opened its doors to Jews. In 1942, Sweden
allowed the immigration of 900 Norwegian Jews. In October 1943, Sweden gave
asylum to more than 8,000 Danish Jews, the whole Danish Jewish community,
which came to Sweden via small fishing boats. The Jewish population doubled
between 1945-1970.

I have no affiliation with ArkivDigital and am posting this solely for the
information of the user.

Remember this offer does not begin until March 18 through March 19.

Viewmate translation request #germany

Lin <lin2@...>
 

Dear GerSIG Friends,
I recently found a document online. I uploaded it to
http://www.jewishgen.org/viewmate/viewmateview.asp?key=VM53949.
Id like to know what this document is, and a translation. I can't
read the handwriting. Ancestry.com says it's a marriage
document. But it appears to be a birth certificate for Rosa REINHEIMER.
The Standestamt of Beerfelden gave me the names of my great-great
grandparents' (Jette SIMON and Benjamin REINHEIMER) children. There was
not a Rosa. However, having another Jette and Benjamin REINHEIMER from
Beerfelden sounds like a stretch.

I would be ever so grateful for anyone who can translate this for me.
Thank you so very much. Be well. Sincerely,

Lin Herz Palm Bay, Florida
