Great idea. An interesting connection is if you had relatives who were
in the International Brigade in the Civil War in Spain you may find
them here, or their families.

JewishGen Discussion Group #JewishGen Re: Am I wrong in thinking that there should be a birth and/or a death cert for an infant? #general

Ira Leviton
 

Dear Cousins,

Barbara Mannlein is looking for the birth and death certificate of an
infant. Her relative died of "peritonitis puerperalis" (childbed fever)
and she has the mother's death certificate but she can't find a birth or
death certificate for the baby. She has been told that this condition
"occurs after delivery; does not affect the child normally (unless the
infection is STD.)" and the births of all other children in the family
have been accounted for.

I answer that this condition can follow delivery *or miscarriage*. If
the baby was a stillbirth, i.e., died in utero or otherwise did not draw
a breath, there won't be a birth or death certificate. If the baby was
born alive, i.e., took even one breath, then there should be both,
although for 1893 in New York City, it can be challenging to find a
misfiled or misindexed certificate. That probably didn't happen with a
baby surnamed ANDERSON, especially if they got the mother's name correct
on her death certificate, but I have a case of a woman who died in
childbirth and her son, who lived to an old age, with differently spelled
surnames (variations of Lipshitz).

Regards,

Ira Leviton

JewishGen Discussion Group #JewishGen German Passports issued in Vilnius, in 1916 #general

Anonymous <gabi.rule@...>
 

Hello,

I was searching my great-great grandfather on JewishGen's databases,
and specifically in the Lithuanian section, and I found a (second)
internal passport application that he had in Vilnius, in August, 1925.
Anyway, the record also says in the comments, that "The German
Passport #39436 issued in Vilnius 29-Mar-1916 is in the file."

Historically speaking, I know that Vilnius was an occupied territory
by Germany in 1916, and that in March at the same year - the German
authorities conducted a census to determine the ethnic composition of
this area. So maybe this is the reason for the issuing of that
passport.

Now the question is, what was the meaning of that "German passport"?
Did it mean that a person was of a German ethnicity? Or did any
passport that was issued at that time and place (March 1916,
Lithuania) was German since it was a German (occupied) territory?

If you want to see it yourself, search for the exact terms at
LitvakSIG: Hirsh Gindin
The 3rd internal passport application record would be the relevant one.

Best Regards,

Gavriel Yadgarov

JewishGen Discussion Group #JewishGen searching for databases of Jews captured by Russians during WW2 #general

Hello my fellow JGeners,

I am hoping someone might be able to help me find out of there are
some databases or lists somewhere of Jews who were taken prisoners
into the Russian army during the war?

I am trying to help a friend find out what became of his Uncle, Yosef
Yochanon Weiss (or Weisz), (born in 1919) >from Simlau, Transylvania,
who was taken as a prisoner into the Russian army and was never seen
again by his family.

I'd love to help him but really have no idea where to look, or if such
lists exist. Does anyone know about this?

Thanks for any ideas you might have,

Re: expatriation of German Jews living outside Germany 1935-36 #germany

Renate Rosenau <RenateRosenau@...>
 

Judith Berlowitz asks, how German Jews living outside Germany in
1935-36 were notified that they were no longer German citizens?

The lists of expatriations, "Ausbuergerungen", were published in the
"Reichsanzeiger" >from 1933 on, based on one of the bills of July 14, 1933.
The lists were published in a book 1985:
