Re: NYC police records #general

Ira Leviton
 

Dear Group,

Gary Gershfeld asked, "I was wondering whether the NYC Police
Department would have old records and/or archives for our view in cases
such as a family member having a tragic death,where the cause of death was
Undetermined on the death certificate..."

These records do exist, somewhere, and their location depends on the
year. But it first depends whether a police report was made (for example,
due to an accident) or a crime was committed in connection with the death,
which is not clear >from the posting. All police activity is entered
chronologically in "blotter books" which are kept at the individual
precincts for many years afterwards, sometimes in an inaccessible place
because the information are not needed years after the incident. I don't
know the policy on public access to blotters that are still in precinct
houses.

The Lloyd George Sealy Library at the John Jay College of Criminal
Justice in Manhattan (899 10th Avenue, at 59th Street; tel 212-237-8246 or
212-541-0965) has most of the N.Y.C. Police Department blotter books from
1916 to 1935, but quite a few are missing. To look up the information,
you have to know first the precinct and then the approximate date.

My uncle, a retired NYC police officer, told me that years ago when his
precinct was moved to a new building, they found stuff in the basement
that looked like it came >from the time of the Civil War. (Maybe he meant
it looked like the stuff had been through the war). Much of the material
was simply discarded, and some officers took material home as souvenirs
and curiousities because they no longer had value in law enforcement.
Some blotter books were probably just misplaced over the years.

If there were any legal proceedings arising >from a potential crime or
accident, then court records are kept forever, although it helps to have a
case number. (The best place to start is the Supreme Court of the county
in which the incident occurred. Obviously, the information in court files
focuses on the perpetrator(s), but there should be information regarding
the victim as well. Newspaper articles may have also mentioned the
incident, whether criminal or not.

Remembering the "Benghazis" of Biberach and Bergen-Belsen #general

Celia Male <celiamale@...>
 

Within the history of the holocaust, the name Biberach
is not well-known and will remain a mere footnote or
curiosity. When, I checked the message archives of
Jewishgen, I could find only one posting in 2003 on
Gersig [the Special Interest Group devoted largely to
Germany] asking for information on Bergen-Belsen
internees sent to Switzerland via Biberach. Yet at
least for a few Jews, it was their final detention
place - and mercifully, a relatively safe haven.

The liberation of the camp will be celebrated this
week. Biberach was a strange camp - set up in Southern
Germany to house Channel Islanders and other British
citizens for eventual exchange with German prisoners
held by the British. It was not an extermination camp
and in fact not intended for Jews at all. The camp
appears to have been run internally mainly by the
British. In September 1942, the German authorities
moved 2000 men, women and children >from the Channel
Islands to internment camps in Germany. They comprised
all non-permanent residents and those not born there
who were between the ages of 16 and 70 years ......

Last weekend, I had the opportunity, for the first
time, to read some accounts by a Viennese family
member of their detention at Biberach and how they got
there.
My family members were prisoners at Bergen-Belsen.
At a certain stage of the war, the Nazis were keen to
get as many exchange people as possible for their
citizens and decided to ship the Jews with South
Americans passports >from Bergen-Belsen to Biberach for
this purpose.

The account also talked about the great excitement in
Biberach when a group of "Benghazis" arrived. They
were described by my relative as British citizens and
orthodox Jews in flowing robes [probably from
Cyrenaica/Libya].

I have now checked out the facts in this family saga
with other references on the internet and they appear
to be corroborated:

1. On the Yad Vashem site you will only find three
deaths at Biberach, all deported fron the Netherlands:

http://www.yadvashem.org

2. There is an account of the deportation of Libyan
Jews and their final destination at Biberach in 1944
These were indeed the 300 or so with British
nationality.

http://sunsite.berkeley.edu/JewsofLibya/LibyanJews/RoumaniAspects.html

http://www.jewishrefugees.org/resources.htm

and on the Wiesenthal website you can read [and see]:

http://motlc.wiesenthal.com/gallery/pg23/pg5/pg23561.html


"In 1942, the Italian rulers of Libya deported Libyan
Jews bearing British passports to forced labor camps
in Italy. The Jews were later transferred to Bergen-
Belsen, a Nazi concentration camp in Germany."
Seen in the photograph are survivors returning home.

3. There is an extended description in German of the
arrival of the exhausted "Bengasis" [sic] in Biberach
from Bergen-Belsen after liberation by the British at
end of September 1944. One man is disclosed as having
died on arrival. However, he is not mentioned on the
Yad Vashem site. Having come >from Bergen-Belsen, I
very much doubt if the exhausted Benghazis did arrive
in "flowing desert robes", so that part of the family
saga must be fictionalised.

http://www.uuhome.de/pr-andresen/weberberg/li_deportation.html

There are 434 Libyan Jews registered on the Yad Vashem
site. We remember them all here today, including the
lucky ones who survived at Biberach.

In the UK on 23rd April [the anniversary of the
liberation of Biberach camp], the History Channel will
show "Stolen by Hitler", the story of the Channel
Island Deportees. Further films by the producer will
be shown on May 9th, 10th and 11th.

Does that collection include cards which may have been filled out by
residents of the Bialystoker Home in lower Manhattan. My cousin's great
grandfather, Benjamin Salomon, born in Kalvaria, arrived in NYC prior to
1880 and lived the rest of his life on the lower East Side, his last
years were spent living in the Bialystoker Home. I called the home some
time ago and they said that they had no early (1930's/40's) records.

Subject: Exciting News for Bialystok Researchers
From: "Mark Halpern" <bialystoker@...>

I would venture to say that all Bialystok researchers had at least
one
relative immigrate to New York City. BIALYGen has been working for
many
months to gain access to the Yahrzeit card collection (2,000 to
4,000
cards) of the Bialystoker Center in New York City. Gary Mokotoff
has
arranged for BIALYGen to borrow this collection so that we can scan
the
cards, create a CD of these images, and index this valuable
genealogical
collection.

Why is this collection valuable? These Memorial Reference Cards
include
the following data fields:

~ Name of Deceased: both in Latin letters and in Hebrew with
Patronymic
information

~ Date of Departure: both the Gregorian date and the Hebrew date

~ Cemetery: most cards do NOT contain Cemetery information

~ Memorial Tablet number and column

~ Notifications: names, addresses and relationship of close
relatives to
the deceased

For people or surnames that you will recognize as Bialystokers,
these
cards are a goldmine of information. Some of these cards will show
four
generations of names and addresses -- the deceased father and
possibly
spouses, siblings, children, and grandchildren. These names and
addresses are listed as people to be notified annually of the
Yahrzeit
date of their loved one. Also, many of the cards show the married
names
of sisters, daughters, and granddaughters, information usually not
found
on most genealogically relevant records.

Based on a sampling of the cards for surnames starting with A
through H,
the deaths covered by these cards range >from the 1880s through to
about
1994. Some of the people memorialized died in Europe, with some
being
Holocaust Martyrs. Please keep in mind that not all the people
memorialized were Bialystokers and the cards do not give any
indication
of these people's ancestral homes.

The project is explained in more detail with a link at the top of
our
homepage at
http://www.shtetlinks.jewishgen.org/bialygen/homepage.htm.
Here you will also find links to four examples of these cards. From
these samples, you can see the information that is possible to
acquire -- information probably not available anywhere else.

To accomplish our goal of creating a full index to the surnames, we
need
your help. In order to get the project started, we need volunteers
to
scan the cards. If you live in the US, have a computer with a CD
drive
and a flat bed scanner, and the time to scan about 300 cards in the
next
month, please contact me at bialystoker@.... The cards will
be
sent to you by UPS.

If you cannot volunteer, please consider a contribution to the
General
Fund by making a donation online through Jewish-Generosity at
http://www.jewishgen.org/JewishGen-erosity/BialystokRrg.html. Your
contribution will help pay the cost of creating the CD and mailing
the
cards.

BIALYGen thanks Gary Mokotoff for arranging the acquisition of the
Yahrzeit Cards >from the Bialystoker Center and the Bialystoker
Center
and Barry Winston, President, Alys Kremer Grossman, Vice President,
and

Miguel Kaplansky <mkaplansky@...>
 

Dear Sirs:
I woult like to contact people related to "Kaplanski's" >from Warsaw.
I tihink that my grandfather Michael Kaplanski was born there more or less
in 1860 and went to Kamenets Litovsk to marry my grandmother Fruma Rifka
Solnitze.
By the way I have a document issued in year 1935 by the University of Genoa
to Meer Kaplanski, son >from Jankiel and Yenta Rozenfeld who's address was
Nosalipie 10/53, Warsaw.
If this surname rings a bell with somebody, please contact me privately.
Thanks in advance
Jag Pesach Sameach !!!
