Rudy Matzner raised a question on Damborice records.

There is a small collection of Damborice records, incl. Familiant Book within
the Bucovice estate, inventory no. F 44. The collection is presumably stored
in one of Brno archive depositories.

One more note: Jewish vital records within 1807-1944 are located in Prague
National archive.

Care of Gravestones [in Germany] #germany

Zeev Raphael <zeevra@...>
 

May I please be allowed to comment on my recent posting on this issue.

It was pointed out to me that I may have given offence to some of our
German friends on this Forum. In fact, following that, I requested to
have the posting withdrawn. But somhow it appeared after all.

Let me assure you that I deeply regret it if I have offended anybody's feelings.

My remark was a subconscious reflex. Many years ago I received an invitation
to visit together with my wife, my former home town Zwickau, at the expense of the
local Municipality.
I very politely declined the generous, and no doubt well-meant offer.

With my best wishes,

Zeev Raphael, Haifa e-mail: zeevra@...

"... my ggggf's gravestone (dating >from 1866) is tilting at such a precarious
angle that it was not possible to place a stone on it, and the German inscription
on the back can no longer be read. So, my question is should I ask the appropriate
authorities to re-set the stone in an upright position?
Justin Levy (Dublin, Ireland) levyduffy@...

I think you might very well do that.
Personally, I would ask them to have this done at *** my own *** expense.
This, because it is you who are interested to have the stone preserved.
In addition, I personally would beware of asking a German for any monetary
favours. With my best wishes,

Unser BLUMENGARTEN and Family MAYER #germany

Elizabeth Levy <levyliz@...>
 

As I go through photos left to me by my ggaunt, I'm looking for clues as to
who most of these people can be.

Occassionally I run across a name that is clearly not our family and instead
probably a friend who came to visit. I have nothing to do with these photos
and would love to pass them on to their rightful family.

The first being Unser BLUMENGARTEN. The photo is taken on the balcony at 480
Park Ave, 15th Fl, in New York in August 1931.

Does this sound like someone you know?

I am hoping something out there knows this man. If so, write me directly
(levyliz@... ) and I'll be happy to send it to you.

Second, does anyone remember a MAYER family >from NY in the 30s-50s? Carl (or
Charles Ludwig MAYER) and his wife, Jenny, left Germany for New York,
eventually living on 42nd Street in Long Island City. Their daughter, my
ggaunt by marriage lived in Sweden and had no children. Their son, Kurt
MAYER, lived in the US too but I don't know what happened to him. I am looking
for Kurt's children if he had any. Anyone who might have known him or might be
able to tell me where to look for information would be very helpful. Thanks.

LDS Records for Unruhstadt / Kargowa 1817 to 1874 #poland

Geoff Kaiser <geoff_kaiser@...>
 

Dear Researchers,

through the excellent work of the people at the Toronto Copy Centre I will
be recieving printed copies of the LDS Films for the town of Unruhstadt (now
Kargowa in Poland - Location 52 Deg 04 Min 15 Deg 51 Min) in the coming
weeks.

I am looking for people who have an interest in this town to assist me with
the large process of reading and transcribing the Birth, Death and Marriage
and Family name records in preparation for them to be loaded onto the JRI -
Poland Database.

Some preliminary previous work has identified some of the frequently
occuring names as follows:

Baumgart, Bernhold, Bamberg, Basch, Borgheim / Burgheim, Boas / Boar,
Bucholz, Cohn, Coppel, Falk, Fallek (?), Fischel, Gittman, Gabriel,
Grunpert, Hertzburg, Jablonski, Joseph, Jacobi, Judas, Lichtenstein,
Lippmann, Loeser / Loser, Loeb, Lowenstein, Levine, Lowenthal, Marcus,
Meyer, Mendel, Neubauer, Nachman, Nathan, Oppenheim, Pach
Phillips, Pincus, Reich, Riesenthal, Reitzenbaum, Schlesinger, Sigall,
Seilig, Stern, Silberstein, Samuel
Saloman, Wolf / Wolff, Wigdor, Wiener, Vogel, Zirker

Not all of the spellings may be correct, and note this is a very preliminary
list, there will be many others.

If anyone with an interest in the town of Unruhstadt or any of the above
names would like to contact we can discuss how you can help with the task.

I look forward to your support

Regards

Re: Cologne (Koeln) & Prison + MARCUS & ROSENBOOM family #germany

gaby laws <gabylaws@...>
 

Hi,

My gg grandfather's brother Nathan Philippus ROZENBOOM died 19 December 1871
in prison at Klungelputz 37 in Koeln. I'm interested in finding more
information about his imprisonment - do such records exist?

Also my gg grandfather Aron Marcus ROZENBOOM, used the surname MARCUS, he
had at least 12 children, I have been able to find information about 9 of
them but seek further information on the following:

Levie MARCUS b11/6/1865 Zutphen Holland, was a merchant living in Cologne in
1898 & 1899, nothing further known. Was he married? have children? etc

Abraham MARCUS b18/12/1867 Zutphen Holland, nothing further known.

Meyer MARCUS b10/9/1875 Delmenhorst, he died in Cologne 18/6/1909 and
according to his tombstone he was married and had children but no names are
there.

The Cologne archives are not prepared to provide any information on the 3
people shown above as I am not a direct descendent.

I would appreciate any help or advice on finding out more about this family,
Thanks - Gaby Laws London UK gabylaws@...

looking for:

Levie MARCUS born 11/6/1865 Zutphen Holland, was a merchant in Cologne 1899.
Nothing further known.

and whether they had any children etc.

Also my gg grandfather's brother Nathan Philippus Marcus ROZENBOOM born

to be Klingelputz 37, would there be any further information available? if

Seek advice about MICHAELIS ancestors just recognized as Jewish #germany

Lorraine Garcia <max.geneology@...>
 

Hello,

I'm wondering if I can perhaps get some guidance in this particular
matter. My mother was born in Charlottenberg, Germany, and came to the
US as an infant alone with only her parents. Her parents never told her
anything but the sketchiest details of her relatives or their past. As
I was talking with her today she said she wanted to do some family
history research. We did some internet checking and found that her
family surname, MICHAELIS is Jewish, at least in Germany. We have a
family picture of my great grandfather, Max Paul MICHAELIS, on which my
grandfather wrote he was "murdered by Nazi criminals" in 1944. Until
yesterday, we had no idea, and please forgive our ignorance, that
MICHAELIS was a Jewish surname. So you can imagine our shock when we
realized that many of our family may have died in death camps. This is
rather overwhelming information for us and we feel an urgent need to
find out the truth about our ancestry. Any suggestions for information
would be welcome. Also, any information about the MICHAELIS family in
Germany would be greatly appreciated.

Thank you, Lorraine Garcia <max.geneology@...> Baltimore, Maryland

I have been left with a treasure and don't know what to do with it.

My great great uncle's wife died a few years ago in Sweden and left me with
ALL the family photos and all family papers. My girlfriend just came to
visit >from Stockholm carrying 6 kgs of photos! Imagine my excitement.

On the other hand, imagine the frustration... There is nothing written on
the backs of 99.9% of the photos! If I can give any advice to people today,
it's label your photographs!!!

I have been able to recognize the photos >from my side - my uncle's side - of
the family, but want to find someone who can recognize my aunt's side.

The papers also came with an old typewritten family tree for her mother's
side of her family. I'm currently putting that in the computer but would
love to pass it on to someone reaching those names. The familes are
BONNEWITT (also known as BONNEWETT and BONAVID), BORN and STRAUSS. The
father's family is MAYER although no tree is available for the MAYER side.

BONNEWITT, BORN et al started off in Eichloch Rheinhessen.
STRAUSS in Freilaubersheim, Rheinhessen, later Dromersheim.
MAYER in Langenlonsheim and Laubenheim.

If these names or places are familiar to you, let me know and we'll try to
find a connection. Thanks.

INTRO - Seeking MICHAELIS #germany

Lorraine Garcia <max.geneology@...>
 

Hello GerSig,
I just joined the group. I have just started doing genealogy research. I consider
myself to be a novice in doing German Jewish Genealogy research. I live in
Baltimore, Maryland, USA. My native language is English. I consider myself an
expert in using a computer. My experience in using the Internet is extensive to
intermediate.

I have identified the names and birth and death dates of my grandfather
and great grandfather.

My primary research goals now are to find out more about the rest of my ancestry.
The family names and towns that I am researching are:

- My mother Eveline Ursula MICHAELIS was born in Charlottenberg,
Germany, (I believe 104 Wilmersdorfer Str.) in 1925. She came to the US
in 1926 with her parents.

- Her father was Max Edgar MICHAELIS, born 1895 and died 1972 in New
Jersey.

- My great grandfather was Max Paul MICHAELIS, born 1866 and died at the
hand of the Nazis 1944.

A possible Jewish heritage for our family is something that is entirely
new to us and my mother and I hope to find out who we really are.
