Request for Your Assistance on Learning About Archive Access Problems For Holocaust and Holocaust Era Records #southafrica

Jan Meisels Allen
 

Dear Jewish Genealogist:

I will be talking in Europe in June on access to Holocaust and Holocaust era
records. I am asking you for your assistance on problems you may have
incurred when trying to access these Holocaust records. Not all records are
birth, marriage, death or census records. These records could be
institutional records, passport, transit visas, concentration camp records,
property records, art works and other similar documents. With respect to
access to archives, either in person or by written communication, had you
encountered problems or obstacles with respect to the availability of the
records. I do not mean if the records are not on the Internet and
therefore, they are not accessible >from the comfort on our homes.

The scope of this covers not only vital records >from 1860-1948 -- the time
frame people in the holocaust may have been alive to just after the
Holocaust and includes displaced persons camp records. We need to know who
was there in order to know who is no longer there- which is why I am also
asking about records that would tell us who was alive at the time, i.e.
starting in the 1860's--the outside date of someone still alive in
1939-1945. If you know the person died before the Holocaust please do not
reply that you can't get their records -- this if for people alive at the
beginning of the Holocaust. I am looking for information on access
problems-whether a government agency or private archive ignored your
request, refused access to the records, the records were not researchable
when at the archives, the cost of obtaining the records was prohibitive, in
other words obstacles you may have encountered >from a government archive or
private archive for archival documents that cover the Holocaust or Holocaust
era type governments.

I would appreciate if you would get back to me back with the following: name
of country, archive and the type of access problem you incurred. We
recognize that some countries have specific time embargoes before records
may be accessible--and that is an access impediment that can be submitted. I
would appreciate your objective comments and not 'complaints' as we need to
know where and what the problems are before we can try to get changes.

On the other hand, if you had a positive experience I would also like to
hear about that as positive examples to show others is helpful.

I would appreciate hearing >from you before April 30.

Thank you in advance for your assistance.

Re: Molaff, Vitebsk #general

Ted Gostin <tgostin@...>
 

Alan Cohen asked about clarifying a place listed on immigration and
naturalization papers as "Molaff, Vitepsk, Russia," with the assumption that
Molaff is probably Mogilev.

Since the papers state that the place was in Vitebsk gubernia, and neither
of the two best-known Mogilevs were in that province, this place might be
something else. The best bet is to review the gazetteer published by the
Gubernia Statistical Committee in Vitebsk for places that might sound
something like "Molaff." That might produce a place in Vitebsk gubernia
that comes closer to matching the immigration information. These official
gubernia gazetteers were published several times over the years in most
gubernias, and the FHL has microfilmed one for Vitebsk gubernia >from 1906.
The official name is "Spisok naselennykh mest Vitebskoi gubernii," and is
found on film no. 1,923,576, item 3.

Info on Lazarus (Eleazer) BARNETT 1816-1876 #general

Jenny Barnett <jenbarnett@...>
 

I am trying to find information relating to my gggrandfather Lazarus
(Eleazer) BARNETT born in Prussia/Poland (according to UK census) around
1816.  By 1853 he and his wife Sara, and 2 children Barnett b.1849 and
Esther b.1851 (all born in Poland) were in Whitechapel, London England. 
Lazarus and Sara had 4 more children in England, Hannah b. 1853, Wolf
(William) (my great grandfather) b. 1857, Fanny b.1858 and Abraham b.1859. 
Lazarus, a pedlar/hawker and Member of the Great Synagogue, died in 1876,
aged 51. The informant at his death was his nephew Harris SIMONS.

I would be very grateful for any information on this family, and/or other
resources I could look to, as we have been unable to find more details
relating to Lazarus, his possibly different original/birth name, his birth
time and place, his marriage, and emigration to England.

Thank you & Regards

Researching:  BARNETT, SIMONS, SPRINGER, JACOBS, ISAACS.

MODERATOR NOTE: Please respond directly to Jenny with information
specific to her family. Feel free to post here any tips, techniques
or resources that might be of more general interest.

Re: Molaff #general

Martha Forsyth
 

Check out Google Maps - the town of Vitebsk looks to be about 80 miles
due north of the town of Mohilev (which, if you look on the Jewishgen
town finder, is called Molev in Yiddish.

Mogilev has also been a "guberniya/oblast" (province?) and I believe
Vitebsk has also, so it looks as if your gf got tangled in the shifting
terminology/local administrative boundaries. My own gf also reported on
one census record that he came >from Molova (or possibly Malova), which I
finally realized was Mogilev. (But I'm now pretty sure that he actually
came >from Belitsa (now Novabelitsky Rayon, a suburb of Gomel) - which at
the time (1903) was administratively the "county seat" of the Gomel
uyezd, which was in the Mogilev oblast.)

Hope this helps.

First name "Pye" for a woman #general

Jake Jacobs
 

My g'grandfather's marriage record, >from NYC, identifies his mother's
first name as "Pye." It is very clearly written.  She has been
identified in other records as Phillis and Fannie. We do not know
where she was born or where she lived before coming to the U.S. around
1865, but her son (my g'grandfather) was born either in Posen, Poland
or Suwalki, Lithuania. I know, many hundreds of miles apart.
Nonetheless, both cities were identified in different records as
birthplaces.

Can we tell anything at all >from the name "Pye"?
