Looking at the names of the witnesses, I think Spandau is a better intrpertation.  Spandau is a suburb of Berlin.

The book is available free at Amazon if you have a KindleUnlimited subscription.

But, following review suggests it is for beginners only. Israel Pickholtz book is detailed and very advanced.

I was excited when this book arrived. But it was a disappointment, the Author is not a specialist in genealogy, he is just a guy who did his own DNA test and writes about it. There are a few charts from other sources, but many of them were illegible. You can learn more from Wikipedia.

Re: Child of holocaust survivors seeks to obtain Polish citizenship #general #poland

David Cherson
 

Ken,
I had enough trouble trying to understand why Jews seek German citizenship (yes my late wife was a child of German Jews), but seeking Polish citizenship just boggles my mind.  I can at least credit Germany for trying to combat their anti-semitism and racism but I can find nothing good to say about Poland, particularly the government that is in power and a good portion of it's population.  Oh I understand the principle, her parents had a right to citizenship and it was taken away, etc.  But it really disappoints me that there isn't an equal desire to make aliyah and gain Israeli citizenship.  Just because you might not like the government and the society doesn't fit your desired mold is no reason.  By becoming a citizen you can help change those things more than you can from the outside.

Hi Jgenners,

 

The April meeting will feature this topic:

Multi-Website Searches - Streamlining Your Research - Tips & Tricks

 

The general idea of this topic is to have the ability to search multiple genealogy websites using the same data starting from one site.

 

That is what this interactive presentation is all about.

The attendees will receive a pdf file & Zoom link before the meeting.

The pdf will allow you to get set up for the meeting - 

  • Download a Chrome extension to use.
  • Find the Genealogy Dashboard for use.
  • Discover the wonders of SteveMorse.
  • Several articles and videos on how to set up your device(s) in Windows 10 and MacOS and various tablets to use Split Screen or 2 monitors.
  • Prep or don’t prep!

I hope to see you on Tues 4/13/at 10 am.

If you prep and develop some questions or comments on the topic, send them to me.

 

The presentation will go about 1 hour, leaving 30 min for your questions.

 

Hit the return arrow below and reserve you spot now - you will receive more info about the group!!

 

Regards,

brackets on records #records

mandy.molava@...
 

Would anyone have any experience in brackets on records, please?

I have read that '(MALE) or (FEMALE) accompanied by surname' on birth records indicates a baby that might have passed and so no name given. Is this also possible with adoption? This is 1930's UK.

Thanks in advance

Viewmate 92881 - query about Hebrew name on grave #warsaw #names

Paul Silverstone
 

I have posted a picture of the grave of my great-grandmother who was buried in Warsaw before WWI.
Her married name was CHRZAN but the Hebrew on the stone seems to say something different.
 
https://www.jewishgen.org/viewmate/responselist.asp?key=92881
 
What is the best way to search for this gravestone which I believe still exists.

Arolsen Archives #holocaust #records

Jan Meisels Allen
 

 

The Arolsen Archives and Auschwitz-Birkenau Museum collaborated for two years which resulted in finding previously unknown identities of an estimated 4,000 camp inmates as well as information about 26,00 others. Currently 300,000 out of 400,000 inmates estimated to beheld at the camp identities are known.  According to the museum’s digital archive head, that apart from the camp’s prisoners, another 905,00 people were brought there and exterminated upon arrival leaving no records.

 

The Arolsen Archives contain around 30 million documents, including the archives of the SS and the Gestapo and records from the concentration camps.  Over the years, they have provided information to the families of former prisoners and they have only been opened up for academic research since 2007.

 

A total of 120,000 documents relating to Auschwitz inmates have been digitized as part of the project.

 

Among the discoveries were many records of Hungarian Jews who were transported to Auschwitz after May 1944 and whose names do not appear in any other archive.
