more Danzig residential registration cards online #poland #danzig #gdansk #germany

Logan J. Kleinwaks
 

Scans of Danzig residential registration cards (1843-1918) are now
online at https://szukajwarchiwach.pl/10/14/0/5/str/1/2000#tabJednostki
for most surnames A-REHWALSKI. Until recently, only surnames through
H were online.

This is a very important source for researching people who lived in
Danzig (even if not born there) and it is easy to use. At the link
above, find the row where the second column begins "Karty Meldunkowe"
and has a range of surnames covering your surname of interest
(according to German alphabetization). For example, for the surname
PARADIES, the row is "Karty meldunkowe: Panke - Passauer". If the
number in the rightmost column is not "0", then there are scans
available. Click "Karty meldunkowe" in the row of interest, then
click the "Skany" or "Scans" tab in the top right to see thumbnail
versions of scans (15 per page by default).

Clicking on a thumbnail will enlarge it. The thumbnail images are
arranged roughly alphabetically with surnames at the top, so browse
through the thumbnails until you find your surname or person of
interest.

On the enlarged image, there is an icon near the bottom right that
looks like a white rectangle on a black circle -- clicking that will
open a new window to display a high-resolution image. Because of the
size of the high-resolution image, it might not be fully visible on
your screen, but you can click, hold, and drag it with your mouse to
change the visible region. To save a high-resolution image to your
computer, click the "Pobierz" or "Download" link below the image, in
the bottom center.

Make sure you check adjacent scans as there are often two scans, front
and back, for each card. On the cards, you can find a wealth of
genealogical information including birth dates and places, maiden
names, death dates and places, addresses in Danzig, and places people
moved to >from Danzig. Some of the later cards even include the head
of household's parents' names near the top.

If you learn dates of birth or death in Danzig, be sure to check the
Danzig SIG's chart at
https://www.jewishgen.org/danzig/records-chart.php showing the
locations of vital records. Note especially the records highlighted
in green, which are already searchable on JewishGen, and the links to
finding aids for civil records 1874-1914 and Jewish records 1846-1927
(bulk 1846-1879). If records of interest are highlighted in yellow,
they are in the process of being transcribed or proofread and we would
welcome volunteer help. If you learn of people born in Danzig before
1846, feel free to contact me about how to research their ancestry
further in early 19th or late 18th century sources (some online, some
being worked on, some to be acquired).

If you would like to write a more complete guide to the Danzig
residential registration cards for the Danzig SIG website, please
contact me.

Thanks very much to the State Archives in Gdansk and the National
Digital Archives for making these scans available!

Heinrich WALLACH #germany

ronald Wallace
 

I am trying to trace a Heinrich WALLACH who was born in Bad Suelze in
Mecklenburg in December of 1857. He was Adopted by the HEYMANSON family (His
Mother's family) of Luebeck after his Father died in 1870.

He came to the United States and arrived, I believe, on August 16th 1890

I have been unable to find any trace of him after that. It is likely that he
changed his name to Henry WALLACH or Henry WALLACE or something like that.

If anyone has any information about him, I would be most grateful.

Ronald Wallace, Apollo Beach, FL ronald@thewallaces.net

Dear Genners, I've posted 3 vital records. Two are in Polish and seem to be some
kind of ID card. One is for Jan Broder (VM 67202) and the other is for his brother
Artur Broder (VM67200). The third document I believe is in German and describes or
validates a marriage (VM67201) for which I need a translation. The files are on
ViewMate at the following addresses:

Izzy MUHLSTOCK-MILLS Mystery-Update #general

Shirley Brodt
 

I wrote the following in an earlier June post:

I've recently discovered American relatives of my paternal grandfather, Chaskel
(Yechezkiel) Muhlstock (born 1885 and came to the U.S. >from Poland or Austria in
1939), who was a son of Abraham Muhlstock (born circa 1863) and Rachel Dur.

One of the offspring of these relatives wrote that Chaskel was one of three
siblings: Mina Muhlstock (born 1893), who married Samuel Schwartz; Rosa Muhlstock
(born 1902), who married Isadore Frumkin (I've found and received information on
both of these siblings); and Isie Muhlstock.

One relative wrote that Isie (or Izzy) was a woman who married Stanley Mills.
Another relative wrote that Izzy was a man, who turned away >from being religious
and might have fought in the Spanish Civil War.

Try as I might, I can find no information on Izzy. His or her birth date would have
been around the dates of his/her other siblings. There are entries for an Isie or
Isaac Muhlstock, born 1876, but that can't be the person I'm searching for, as that
date would mean that Abraham would have been about 13 years old when Izzy was born.

On the WieWasWie website, I found information on an Isaac Muhlstock, born 1894,
which would fit, and also a U.S. Border Crossings >from Canada to the U.S. list, in
which his father's name is listed as Abraham.

That was my original post.

After that, I spoke with an American relative, who said that Stanley Mills and Izzy
Muhlstock were one and the same person. I was told that Izzy, son of Abraham
Muhlstock and Rachel Dur, had come to the U.S. and lived in New York. He sometimes
visited Mount Clemens, Michigan, where his sister Mina lived. Izzy (it is unknown
if his name was originally Israel or Yitzchak) had no interest in his Jewish
heritage, changed his name to Stanley Mills and married an American Jewish woman.

With all that, I still haven't found any corroborating info on him. On JRI-Poland,
under the Stanislawow Wojewodztwo tab, there was an entry showing an Izrael
Muhlstock, daughter of Ruchel, and having been born in Bursztyn in 1899, but >from
what I can gather >from the text in the accompanying image, Ruchel's information
shows that that record was not for the person I'm seeking.

If anyone can read Polish and let me know what the text says, that would be much
appreciated.
