ref: Dachau camp #general

Tom Venetianer <tom.vene@...>
 

Dear Lili:

Kaufering Erpfting was one of Dachau's subcamps. Riederloh is
village nearby, housed inmate barracks. Kaufering is about 30
miles west of Munich/Dachau. Search for a map using JewishGen's
ShtetlFinder.

During the Nazi regime Dornier and Messerschmitt had factories
there, as well as the DAG dynamite plant was there, so maybe one
of these was the place where your father worked. See
< http://www.streport.com/files/holocaust/heuakt.jpg.html >.

Finally, if you wish to read an account about the Kaufering
Erpfting camps see
< http://www.acu.edu/academics/history/12ad/campsx/camps.htm >

Good luck with your sad search
Tom

I just (after 60 years) found out my father died in Dachau but
worked in Riederloh. Can anyone enlighten me as to what and
where Riederloh was and anything else available on this camp.
I never heard of it before. Appreciate your help.

Shtetl Seeker suggests this is Szczekaczewo, north of Warsaw.

Is there a possibility that the 1901 London census which Ms.
Bruckheimer looked contains a mistranscription or misspelling of
the town name?

I ask because "Where We Once Walked" has an entry of Staszow (or
Stashev, Stashuv). It says its population was 4,704 and that it
is 101 kilometers northeast of Krakow. Chester G.Cohen's "Shtetl
Finder Gazetteer" also has an entry for Stashev, and says that
there is a Yizkor book for the town.

I don't recognize the initial combination "Sth". I dare suggest
that the census reporter might have mistranscribed a Yiddish
pronunciation of "Sht." Also, although I do understand that a
handwritten terminal "v" could resemble a handwritten terminal "r,"
I don't undertand what our ever helpful Sally means by "possibly
Sthasor, but it looks like a v, and I would guess v in Poland
anyway."

It is my understanding that a "w" in Polish is in Russian a "v,"
So I believe "Staszow" is the Polish version of the town's name,
while "Stashev" is the Russian or Ukrainian version. Possibly a
Yiddish speaker would pronounce the name as "Shtashow" or "Shtashov."

Naturalization of children #general

martin solomon <bassdoc@...>
 

I tried to get back to a link where someone had a relative who may
have arrived as a toddler and wanted to know about naturalization.
According to the NYS Archives Information Leaflet #6 after 1922 a
non-native minor child became a citizen when their parents were
naturalized. This source was also good to determine the New York
area district courts and dates of the records available.
www.sara.nysed.gov. The leaflet is a goldmine for basic information
on where to get naturalization records.

Dear Colleagues,

It's that time again. The aftermath of our annual genealogy

genealogy societies and study groups. Let us know if you want to
organize one in your town; Avotaynu will send you names and
addresses of folks in your area >from our database of those who

Glad to know they are available. How did you find those detainee

I must take issue with Diane Jacobs' assertion that detainee
manifests are not available on-line. I have found them,
including the Astoria, March 29, 1906, Ellis Island.

The Galitzianer: 10th Anniversity CD -- Project Manager Needed #galicia

Edward Goldstein <edward.goldstein3@...>
 

For Gesher Galicia's 10th anniversary, to be celebrated in 2003, we
are planning to produce a CD-ROM that contains all the issues of The
Galitzianer ever published. These will be in PDF format.

The issues published since February 2001 now exist in PDF format.
Electronic files exist for most of the other issues, but a few issues
exist only in paper format. Quite a bit of work needs to be done to
reconstruct all the issues and to convert them to PDF format. The
work involves planning, scanning paper copies, OCR processing,
reassembling complete issues, etc.

Several members have volunteered for this work. BUT we urgently need
a project manager to do the planning, assign tasks to different
members and make sure the project is done properly and on time.

The project manager should be knowledgeable in all the necessary
steps. He/she should be a paid-up member of Gesher Galicia (not just
the GGSIG).

If you are interested please respond to me or to Shelley Pollero
<rkpollero@...>.

10th Anniversary Video #galicia

Sam Eneman <seneman@...>
 

Help the Galicia SIG celebrate our 10th Anniversary!

We want to create a video to showcase the successes our members have had
connecting with their Galitzianer history and inspire others in their search.

And we want your help.

We need your stories -- videos and photos -- that capture your most compelling
reunions with long-separated relatives and dramatic visits to ancestral towns.

We will premiere this video at next July's IAJGS Conference in Washington, DC.
So we need your material by January 1, 2003.

We can use any video format and either photos or digital stills. If you don't
have a scanner, send us your photos and we'll scan them. All originals will be
returned.

Please contact me via email at seneman@... if you have material for
us to use or any questions.

Thanks,
