Hi all,

I've posted a vital record for which I need a translation.

It is on ViewMate at the following address: https://www.jewishgen.org/viewmate/viewmateview.asp?key=VM89463.
 
The document is a birth and marriage record for an ancestor of mine, Berta Binderer, from Chernivtsi, Ukraine (formerly Czernowitz, Austria-Hungary and then Romania). The birth information (the majority of the record) is in German, while the marriage information, added later, is in Romanian.

Please respond via the form provided on the ViewMate image page. If you have any questions, please feel free to reach out.

Thank you in advance for your help,

Re: Town or village of Piotrkow #poland

Alexander Sharon
 

Carin,

Name of the village "Naza" doesn't sound Polish or Slavic.
Just in case, I've checked all the localities names in Piotrkow Trybunalski and Piotrkow Kujawski regions and found nothing even similar.
It helps sometime if you can provide researched names and a copy of the naturalization page where town name is shown.

NEINKEN-other surnames? Other countries? #latvia #names

Elizabeth Scofield
 

NEINKEN parents (Lipmann & Sara) and children (who identified their birthplace as Riga) emigrated to U.S. about 1893. Although there are possible records of this family in Lithuania, I  find no other evidence of the NEINKEN name anyplace. Where is the rest of the family--under other names or countries?

Help needed finding Mollie Schiff's immigration papers #records

SUE KAHN
 

Mollie Schiff Epstein was born around 1880 according to censuses. She was always known as Mollie, but I discovered that her headstone had the name Chiyene Malka. As far as I know the family was from Slutsk. Mollie's father Zalman Schiff had three wives. Mollie was from the second wife and had a brother Benjamin (Barnett) and a sister Dina (Lena/Dine). I have been searching for immigration and naturalization papers for Mollie using Malka, Mollie, and Chienne with varying spellings of these names. I located an 1899 the manifest with Feigle, Zalman's third wife Dina, Hene (Anna), Hirsch (Harry) and Chaje (Ida). Anna, Harry & Ida were from the third wife. In the 1900 census Chienne Malka was listed as Mollie. Is it likely that the ship manifest would have been Chiyene or Malka or can't one say? Could anyone help me find any immigration papers on Mollie? Although the 1900 census indicated she came in 1890 I cannot find this. I found a Chienne Schiff who immigrated in 1895, but it said her residence was Schweksne, Russland, not Slutsk. Could the family have started in Schweksne? Many questions. Any ideas?

Fritz BUKOFZER, film producer- Paris > Switzerland #france

David Selig
 

Hi to all who have helped, and Happy(ier) New Year.

I recently found at the French Archives, two large files re Fritz, and his second wife, Marta Bukofzer who was my grandma. 
Fritz came to Paris in 1933, must have met Marta here.   She came (I guess, to join her sister, Meta) in 1937, my father Martin Selig was then sent to boarding school in UK.

They moved to sth of France in 1940 and married in Toulouse, in 1940. 

After the war they applied for French nationailty, were told in 1949 that they had to wait another four years at least (to "Assimilate" more completely).  IN 1955 it was granted, but at the mlast moment stopped for three months, following an anonymous denunciation letter sent to the police.  This was quickly debunked, and it came trhough early 1956.   Fritz died in Luzern, 1958.  Marta lived in paris until 1970, when she moved finally to Melbourne. 

I still have to collate much information from these amazing files, and I am going to post a general new topic re, finding your way around them - quite a labyrinth, in very complex French archives. 

 

Best to you all, David SELIG, Paris

Online meeting CompGen "Jewish genealogy to support memorial sites and descendants in search of family roots" (in German) #germany #events #records

Andreas Schwab
 

Scattered all over the world, descendants of Jewish families whose roots can be traced back to places in Baden-Württemberg still live today. The Gäu-Neckar-Alb memorial association would like to help to find out the family roots and to establish connections to other families.
 
This genealogical knowledge database www.juedische-familien.de based on the genealogy software TNG creates a basis for family, local and historical research. It also serves to collect documents, photos and sources, with the help of which the life history of Jewish families can be documented and passed on.
 
The speaker Andrea Dettling will present which analog and digital sources are relevant for the genealogy of Jewish families, which research possibilities are promising and how the results can be presented professionally.
 
Using the database www.juedische-familien.de as an example, it will be shown how Jewish citizens searching for their family roots around the world can be helped with archival documents or lists of ancestors to form a picture of the lives of their ancestors in Germany.

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

Bernard Flam
 

Hi from Paris,

Hello Sharon & Sharon,

Searching and finding original documents concerning our Losts in Lodz' ghetto is possible with all online databases already available : an opportunity during our lockdown !

Remember what I wrote previously in this forum (#653706, Dec 17th) :

  • During ghetto period, its Judenrat (Jewish administration under nazi rules) had ca. 14.000 clercs : they filed ca. 800.000 pages of archives which hadn't been destroyed and are available at USHMM : thanks again Ms. Megan Lewis, Library Referee who helped me to discover and understand structure of these huge archives. USHMM "Finding Aid" is 165 page thick, enough to present ca. 800 rolls of 1000 microfilms.
  • Now, a large part of these archives are available on Polish State archives at https://szukajwarchiwach.pl/39/278/0#tabZespol . These archives are same microfilms as USHMM, but aren't already fully on line.
  • With these archives, you can follow fate of almost all our Losts, from their early entrance in ghetto to their last day...
  • "Residents" lists have been indexed by Yad Vashem and ORFLI : they are available in JewishGen, as are ID card of ghetto workers. But you have much more to find in these archives.

And additional answer from Ms Megan Lewis, Reference Librarian, USHMM

 

The collection Bernard referenced, USHMM Archives collection RG-15.083 (click on this link to be taken to the description and finding aid), contains many lists and documents relating to individuals.  Several sets of lists or documents have been indexed as part of our World Memory Project in partnership with Ancestry.com. The index is free to access on Ancestry's site.  The actual documents are not online but there are instructions on how to order copies.  You should also search our Holocaust Survivors and Victims Database which contains names from collections that are not part of the World Memory Project.

To search Bajla Fuks, I use USHMM "Finding Aid RG-15.083" (165 pages) to determine which "file" (archived from microfilm reel) could be of interest. 

There are ca. 2482 files from 695 reels.

 

Lodz ghetto archives aren't available on USHMM web site (only on its Intranet) because (I guess) these archives belong to Polish State Archives.
And obviously, it's not best moment to be in Washington...

But most of same microfilms of these 800.000 pages are now on line at Polish State Archives (PSA):

https://szukajwarchiwach.pl/39/278/0#tabZespol
 

So and fortunately, unit number are same in USHMM Finding Aid and in PSA web site:

example : reel 254, unit 1091 (Rumkowski's speeches), is found at 39/278/0/14/1091,  https://szukajwarchiwach.pl/39/278/0/14/1091#tabJednostka
 

I must add that a lot of units concerning individuals have been indexed by JewishGen or JRI Poland from Yad Vashem or ORFLI documents : so we will find data already known, but searching directly these archives is a way to access the original papers.

 

Concerning Bajla Fuks, I searched through "USHMM finding aid" what could be of interest:

 

Reel 163, file 845 : Alphabetical list of ghetto inhabitants, letter "F"

997 Fuks entries exist in various Lodz ghetto lists...

https://szukajwarchiwach.pl/39/278/0/12/845/str/1/1/100/qkJkJki_cwVW-OMUjZCfmA/#tabSkany


Bajla didn't appear in these 138 pages of lists : dates of compilation aren't known.  

As she was in ghetto till the end in June 1944, one possibility is: these lists had been made before Bajla arrived in Lodz ghetto.
Remember that after closing of ghetto in March 1940, Jews arrived from smaller ghettos and from other nazi occupied countries.

As lists are for "F", some "Flam" are there: I have no link to them as my family was fully Galizianer (around Olesko / Brody).

 

 Reel 169, file 870 : List of names of people deported from the ghetto in transports organized by Central Prison, June-July 1944 (Wykazy imienne osób wysiedlonych z getta w transportach przesłane przez Centralne Więzienie)

 

1st page of transport list of 28/6/1944, attached picture 47

https://szukajwarchiwach.pl/39/278/0/12/870/skan/full/q34RHSP9cXhXWZp1b3SABA
https://szukajwarchiwach.pl/39/278/0/20/1309/skan/full/qnl8EIiYVjHZYan6MeL4RA

 

Transport of Fuks Bajla,   attached picture 50

https://szukajwarchiwach.pl/39/278/0/12/870/skan/full/bsmUU92tJlaXrxaAHfEGzg
 

8 persons named Fuks have been deported with this transport.

4 had (I don't use intentionally the word "lived"..) same address in ghetto, Holz Strasse, 16 : Bajla (B 1923), Chaja (B 1927), Szajndla (B 1921) & Szulim (B 1928)

 

So I look at

Reel 225, file 1033 : Register books of street Holz,...

and search for Holz 16 :

https://szukajwarchiwach.pl/39/278/0/13.4/1033/skan/full/tHLI3W_JbfOP22zKJ7-JMQ , attached picture 114

Bajla and her 3 siblings / cousins (?) had a previous address "Siegfried Strasse 6, flat 33".

In same page, you get Ghetto ID number of these four persons : 183951 to 183954
With this number, we could search on other lists who were previous or following persons registered on same moment with them : parents, other family members ?
Also last date of meal deliveries to these ID numbers by cantins.

I have'nt found page of register book for "Siegfried St. 6" during my 3 hours searches.

Another clue : on a 1st registration in Lodz ghetto, Bajla had a former residence, town of Brzeziny.

 

Birth archives of Brzeziny exist from 1910 to 1935 :

https://www.rtrfoundation.org/results.php?rin=716&testing=

I found no Fuks in

Reel 305, files 1308, Registration cards of persons destined to deportation and

Reel 305, file 1309, List of deportees in alphabetical order.

 

Reels 673-696 contain Identification cards for Lodz Ghetto worker in alphabetical order, a lot of them with ID pictures.

For some unknown reason from me, they aren't available in PSA online archives but they are at USHMM, indexed by JewishGen and you can get copies.

Chaja, Szandjla et Szulim cards are indexed :

Re: myDNA Merges with FamilyTree DNA #announcements #dna

Perhaps some good will come of it. For example, if the money paid by people seeking to stay healthy allows the prices of advanced geneologically oriented testing to lessen considerably. Question: which privacy and data sharing laws will apply to the new conglomerate: US or Australian.?

French archives #france #records

David Selig
 

HI to all, and Happy New Year. 

I recently made it to the French National archives, and having been helped by some of you, am gald to offer any help, especially regarding the French files (Police, Identity cards, Naturalization...) held there. 

It is very complex to find one's way around the files / dossiers/ record numbers. 
A huge archive was seized by the Germans, then by the Russians in 1945, taken to Moscow, and onyl returned to France in 1990's

It is known as the "Fonds de Moscou". 

I will gladly offer what help I can to anyone seekeing information on family in France, from about 1900 onwards. 

Best to all, David Selig.

Re: Who is the better option for DNA: siblings or father and son? #dna

kleincentral1@...
 

Hi Carol. There are a lot of factors involved, so we need more information to give you a better answer. As others have said, it is always best to test the oldest generation first. However, you also have to decide which company to test with and what type of test. You will find the most relatives by doing an autosomal test. Ancestrydna has the largest database. From Ancestry, you can upload to familytreedna, MyHeritage, and gedmatch. Uploads are free, but there are small fees for added services. You can also do autosomal testing at 23andMe if you want to look for more matches. Neither Ancestry nor 23andMe accept uploads, so you have to test directly on those sites. If you are interested in Y-DNA, you have to test directly on ftdna (family tree) since an uploaded kit can't be used for that. Or you can test one of the men at ftdna with family finder (autosomal) and do the Y-DNA test later using the same sample.

You don't say who you are in the family, but if you are a sister of the two brothers, your DNA will also be helpful. My suggestion is to start with the father and one of his children at Ancestry. If you all have the same mother (if she is deceased), you will be able to separate paternal and maternal matches. Then upload to the other sites. If you are interested in doing the Y-DNA test, one of the brothers should do the autosomal test first at ftdna so you can compare to the other uploaded kits. As I said, you can do the Y-DNA test later, but there should be no rush on that. If there are any maternal living relatives (aunts, uncles, or even cousins), you might want to consider asking them to test, also. 

It can get very expensive, complicated, and time consuming but also thrilling! Good luck!
