Dear SIG´ers,

I´d love to attend.... but I can´t.

Is there any possibility that a copy of the papers
presented at the conference be donated by the authors
and included in our (excellent) web site as files so
everyone can access?

Have a great conference,
Regards

My late stepbrother was born in Vienna & visited there about 15 yrs ago
looking for family history. His mother had told him that her father was
a goldsmith to the court, & he found a record-book which mentioned his
grandfather's name. He sent me a copy of a photo he took of the page,
but it's in handwritten German & very unclear - I don't know where it
was located or what book it was [it has a column for the name & a column
for what was received]. I can scan it & send to anyone who is interested.

I have been looking for any sort of lists of Jews that may have been
working for the Austrian court between 1912 - 1914. THe rumor in our
family is that my ggf was a geologist or engineer for the Austrian Court
and was told by and possibly helped by a superior to get out of Austria
just before WWI.

Thanks for any assistance.

Holocaust records #general

duccio leoni <duccio.leoni@...>
 

Hello everyone!
I have just read in the British Press that at long last an agreement between
the German, American and Israeli governments has been signed thus opening
for research the whole of records kept under lock and key this far.

As I have been trying to find what did happen to my Grandmother who
disappeared in thin air after her arrest in Bologna, Italy in November 1943
and having sent various written requests to the Red Cross and also to Bad
Arolsen direct, I wonder what will be the conditions, "modus operandi" to
access these records.

Has anything transpired or already acted on, on your side of the pond?

Re: Naturalization Records #france

British naturalisation records can be found in the National Archives
catalogue.
A search can be started >from here:
http://www.nationalarchives.gov.uk/catalogue/

If you search for "Harris AND Woolf " it finds a couple of possible matches.

Subject: Naturalization Records
From: Jslevey@...
Date: Thu, 27 Jul 2006 11:37:05 EDT

My grtgrtgrandfather, Harris Woolf migrated to London >from Poland ("Russia,
Poland") according to the censuses in about the late 1860's. According to
the
censuses, he became a naturalized British subject. Does anyone know how I
might find (or try to find) any records of his naturalization?


JCR, re: Naturalization Records #unitedkingdom

jeremy frankel
 

Dear Janette,

I can't tell where you live but the Mormons have microfilmed the UK
Denizations and Naturalization Indices. These can be found on
microfilms 814514 and 814515. These films cover the period 1700 to
1925.

If you have access to a Mormon Family History Center, I would order
these films as it's obviously much better for you to review the
indices yourself. If you can afford it and the facility permits, you
may want to pay the extra to keep the films in the permanent
collection. I did this for my FHC here in Oakland, California.

< the census that says he was already naturalized >

Many people stated on the census that they were a "naturalised British
subject" (or they are shown as "NBS") when they were not. I would not
discount this being the right entry solely on the grounds of a discrepancy
between the date of the naturalisation discovered and the date on the census
when he claimed to have already been naturalised.
