You need to look at the ScotlandsPeople website for Scottish BMD and Census records including the 1939 Register (this is the sister website to Findmypast which deals with England and Wales).

Help with Translating Birth Record - German/Romanian? #translation

Sarit Klein

Hello. Hoping for some help translating what I believe is a birth record of my grandfather, Wilhelm Schimmel. The record is a bit hard to read.  Can anyone translate the column titles (columns 1-12) and/or any of the responses in the first line (line 151) for those columns? 
Thanks in advance for the help!

Re: Chelmno record of Bajla Fuks born 1923, transport june 28, 1944 #holocaust


I also have many family members that were in the Lodz Ghetto that “disappeared”. In general, I’ve found records at the US Holocaust Museum’s website but not necessarily complete records for all of them. Sometimes I’ve seen in address registrations in the “comments” column that someone died or was deported with a date. I’m not sure I’ve seen an actual transport list. From my understanding, Chelmno was strictly an extermination camp and no one was truly “detained” but murdered upon arrival. Someone else in this discussion group may know more.

Documents from the Lithuanian Embassy in Riga (Latvia) #lithuania #latvia #records

Dear Genners,
Does anyone knows what happened to documents of the Lithuanian Embassy in Riga pertaining to the period around WWI (1914-1920)? Where could I find them? I am looking for information on my relatives who were Lithuanian jews living in Riga during this period.
Is anyone else researching Lithuanians jews who migrated to Riga or anywhere in Latvia?
Thank you in Advance!
I wish everyone a happy and healthy 2021!

Re: Post-WWII Records for Ufa #records #russia


what kind of documents are you trying to locate?  Yad Vashem might have lists of families evacuated to Ufa that would have been compiled around 1942-43.   The list will typically contain immediate family members, age, where they lived and worked prior to evacuation.  If you are able to locate them in Yad Vashem database, then you can try to contact them to get a scan of the page and get it translated here.
If they worked in Ufa, there might possibly be employment documents in the city archive.

These were just different regions of the same country - the Russian Empire.  Riga was one of the uezd (district) capitals in the Livonia governorate, Radomysl (which specific one?) would have been part of one the governorates in what is now Poland (there was also Radomysl in the Kiev governorate), and Ufa was the main city of the Ufa governorate.
I don't think it's possible to find out why they were in Ufa without knowing what line of work Leon was in and when they got to Ufa.  Maybe they were there for a job or as internally displaced persons (WWI or Civil war).  Knowing when they arrived is critical to determining what documents to look for. If they arrived prior to the revolution, there are going to be documents that list the reason why they were there, approval to settle or stay temporarily, as well as census records.  There aren't going to be documents like that after the Revolution, as they wouldn't need to be authorized to be there.  Registration of births around 1920 was handled by the civil authorities, prior to that it was recorded by the religions authorities.  The only Jewish birth records that survived in Ufa are from 1908 to 1911.  You can try to contact the Ufa City Archive to see if they can locate documents about the family, but it would definitely be helpful if you knew when the family moved there and when they left.  If your uncle's parents worked in Ufa, there might possibly be workplace documents in the archive, depending where they worked.

Does anyone know how to find a birth certificate from Poland 1924 ROZENBAUM? #poland #records


At the time of his birth, Pruzhany was in Poland I believe, tho at other times it is in Russia/BelaRus. I am looking for the birth certificate for Aron (aka Mordechai Aharon ben Tzvi ha Levi) ROZENBAUM from March 1924 or his father, Tzvi (or Hersl). I have a paper he signed at the DP camp after the war that said his birthday and parents, but am trying to find a copy of the birth certificate. He did have one, I believe, as the DP document said it was "lost".

Does the 1939 UK Register include Scotland?  If not, was there an equivalent survey for Scotland?  Thanks.

Re: Vinitsky/Winitsky from Detroit, Mich. #usa

Steve Pickoltz

With regard to my post dealing with Vinitsky/Winitsky from Detroit, I have been asked to supply additional facts.  So here goes.


My family arrived in the USA on April 5, 1909 by way of Liverpool, England aboard the SS Frieland  into Phila., Pa.  My grandparents were Chaje (Ida) (Ostroff) Winitzky changed at some time to Winitsky.  Her husband was Hyman Winitsky who died in Rochester, NY.  The family came to Phila. and stayed with the family of (Sam??) Derschwitz.  I think he was a relative on my grandmother’s Ostroff side.  My grandmother was born in Kiev, Russia and then lived in what is now Dnepropetrovak, Ukraine with her family.


Hyman Winitsky’s parents’ were to the best of my knowledge Gerhan Winitsky and Buckel (not sure if this is first or last name).


The Vinitskys in my tree are so far are David and Lazar.

My grandmother’s parents were Leah Ostroff, father unknown, and a sister Rebecca (Winitsky) Ostroff, husband Benjamin Ostroff.


The Detroit relatives, names written on old pictures are Lorraine Ann Chudler who married a Day.  Another cousin may have been Henrietta Rofsky.

I know there are other Detroit relatives, but I haven’t found their pictures yet.


Again, I hope this info will help some of you, help me.

Re: Autosomal Analysis Question #dna

Dan Nussbaum

It is well known among Physicians that there are two types of ear wax. One is lumpy and wet and the other is flaky and dry. 

The lumpy wet one is more common in people of European and African ancestry and thought to be a recessive characteristic. The flaky dry one is more common in people of East Asian and Native American ancestry and thought to be a dry characteristic.

This is purely anecdotal, but once I learned of the two different types of ear wax, I noticed a higher incidence of flaky dry ear wax in my Jewish patients. Unfortunately, I never did a real study.

Does anyone know how to obtain the actual documents of those who were transported to, detained in, and murdered in Chelmno Extermination Camp?  We have a large portion of our family who tragically met with such fate, and have no idea how to get all records pertaining to each of our family members.  Any help is greatly appreciated.
