German Reichsvereinigung Card Update #general

Lande
 

The next installment of the index to the German Reichsvereinigung
registration cards (so far 26,537 names) is now available at
stevemorse.org/jewishroof.htm. This form of registration was required
1939-1941 for all Jews resident in Germany, whether or not they were German
citizens. Unfortunately, only a small percentage of the cards have been
located, but those which were found can be examined on the Bad Arolsen
website, https:collections.arolsen-archives.org/en/search.

The alphabetical index to the cards has so far reached up to surnames
beginning with the letter S. Unlike the cards themselves, which can only be
searched by family name, this index can be searched by place of birth or
death, or by maiden name. Many Jews resident in Germany were born in Poland
and other countries, e.g. hundreds in Posen, and a city search may yield
unexpected results. I have supplemented the information available on the
cards, drawing >from other sources.

I would be happy to try to answer any questions regarding the cards and
information on the database, but please start by looking at the cards themselves.
