Jan Meisels Allen
 

The Memorial databank is a website of information about those who died
defending Russia during the Great Patriotic War and post-war period. It
was founded by the Ministry of Defense of the Russian Federation in 2007.
The website contains up to 17 million digital copies of documents and 20
million personal record of the Red Army losses in the Great Patriotic War.
Access to the records is free and unlimited. Currently, there are the names
of one million war prisoners although German records indicate there were
over 5 million Soviet citizens in captivity. There are over 5 million
records for soldiers who died, went missing or became prisoners of war. The
website does not require registration.

Information includes: full name, birthdate, or birth year, place of birth,
date and place of recruitment, last place of service, military rank and
reason service ended. Records may be saved as .jpg or pdf's. See:
https://obd-memorial.ru/html/about.htm

The database is in Russian and for those of us who are not conversant in
Russian you will need to use a translation service such as google translate
https://translate.google.com/

For suggestions on how to use the database without knowing Russian see:

2079 lines added to the Obeliai questionnaires file #lithuania

Russ Maurer
 

LitvakSIG is pleased to announce the addition of part 2 (2079 lines)
to the Obeliai questionnaires file, bringing the total to 3538 lines.
Scroll to the bottom of this message for access instructions and a
surname list. This data set will be especially relevant to anyone with
ancestors >from Kovno gubernia (Kaunas, Panevezys, Raseiniai, Siauliai,
Telsiai, Ukmerge, Zarasai districts) as well as Suwalki gubernia and
Trakai district.

Here is some brief background. Because Jews, as a group, were falsely
suspected of disloyalty to the Russian Empire, they were hastily
thrown out of western Kovno gubernia in May of 1915 as WWI came to
Lithuania and the Germans attacked >from East Prussia. Most were sent
to interior Russia. After the war, tens of thousands of the surviving
displaced Lithuanian Jews tried to return to Lithuania, almost all of
them passing through the frontier quarantine station in the tiny town
of Obeliai. This was, for all practical purposes, the only route back
from Russia. In Obeliai, each returnee (or family head) filled out a
questionnaire indicating where they intended to go if readmitted to
Lithuania and including significant personal details about each family
member such as the date and place of birth, maiden name, father=E2=80=99s
name, etc. Many of these questionnaires have been preserved in the
LCVA.

Interestingly, the new lines include some cases of Jews who returned
from the US, not >from Russia.
Any questions can be sent to me at vhrproject@...

Vacancies to Research Trip to Hesse and Baden-Wuerttemberg May 10-17, 2020 #general

Peter Dreifuss
 

Our family has planned a customized land tour to locations primarily within
Hesse Germany via a German-American tour company experienced in planning,
organizing and escorting customized trips in Germany. Our travelers already
numbers six (possibly eight) and could accommodate up to 12. We are seeking
some similarly minded researchers interested in their Hesse and/or
Baden-Wuerttemberg family history for cost sharing.

The trip focusses on Hesse including tours of Fulda, Flieden, Vollmerz,
Sterbfritz and Hintersteinau over 3 days, but also includes a 2-day tour of
the Schmieheim/Altdorf/Kippenhim area in Baden-Wuerttemberg. Since several
member in our group will be cruising up the Rhine prior to the land tour we
are meeting our driver and escort in Basel Switzerland on May 10. The final
day May 17 the driver and guide will be dropping us off at the Frankfurt
airport for our flights home.

The tour group provides a licensed driver, a travel guide and translator for
the entire trip. In addition the company is arranging individual guides with
backgrounds on the Jewish communities in each of the Kehila visited and
accommodations in Colmar (France), Schmieheim, Fulda and Frankfurt, Germany.

We are not affiliated with the tour provider. Please contact me privately if
you would like additional details.

Sincerely,

Re: Was Interrupted Travel to the US from Poland Common? #galicia

Stephen Schmideg <stephen@...>
 

It was fairly common for people to travel to the US in two stages, with
a stopover in England. There were also many cases where people
were victims of fraud and their tickets only took them as far as
England. Some people got off the boat in England and decided not to
continue their journey to the US for various reasons.

It was also fairly common for people to return home after arriving in
England or the US. In my own family I have a photo of my paternal
grandmother Julianna Braunstein and a sister taken in Philadelphia. I
don't know what happened to her sister and I don't have a record of
my grandmother coming to or leaving the US, but she was back in
Hungary marrying my grandfather in 1906.

advice on upcoming trip to Latvia, Moldova, Belarus, Bessarabia #latvia

You need to contact the Latvian State Historical Archives and ask them
to do some research for you. There is a long waiting list perhaps a year
for results but if you give them the dates of your visit they will try
to have some answers ready for you . You can meet with them in the
archives and they will g through it with you. There is a depost but it
is not very high. The deposit is usually 100 euro.
The address to write to is irina.veinberga@... Irina
Veinberga is the Head of the Department and the research will be carried
out by Rita Bogdanova and Lena Polovceva
Give them as much detail as you know including dates when they lived in
Latvia, Family names etc

There is a lot of information for research on Daugavpils in the Jewishgen
Latvia Database including the 1897 census. If you find anything that fits
with your family let them know and they will tell you if your findings
fit with your family. It is easy to make errors when finding names
common to many Jewish people.

As far as a Latvian Guide goes I will send you the recommendation to your
personal email address as I do not think we are allowed to name
individuals on the Discussion Group. Perhaps the Guide may know of a
Guide in the other Countries you are visiting.

I am new to the group. I need some advice and assistance. I am working
on my genealogy family tree. It turns out all 3 of my grandparents are
from different parts of Russia. I happen to be going to Eastern Europe
next April and am planning visit the shtetl's of all my grandparents. I
need assistance. I have never been to Russia. Has anyone gone or knows
anyone who has?

I am looking for a guide familiar with Jewish Russia. I will be going to:
(Latvia, Moldova, Belarus, Bessarabia).

I am also looking for resources so I can best uncover my family story
before I arrive.

Bernhard ZERNIK - seek documentation of death in Auschwitz #germany

Jonathan Wreschner
 

Dear Genners,

My mother's brother, Bernhard ZERNIK, (the uncle I never knew), was
born in Breslau 23/11/1922.

In March 1943, he was deported >from Breslau to Auschwitz with his
parents, Hermann and Alma, and his sister Edith. All died in
Auschwitz.

About 30 years ago, I received a letter that he died in Auschwitz on
20/5/1943 (Iyar 15 5703). That is tomorrow's date, according to both
Hebrew and Gregorian calendars, and I intend to say Kaddish for him.
I have mislaid the letter, and I would like to know how to obtain
documentation on his death. Thanking you,

Jonathan Wreschner, Efrat, Israel jonathan.wreschner@...


Breslau transportation lists - ZERNIK family #germany

Jonathan Wreschner
 

Dear Genners,

About thirty years, I received >from a Polish professor, Karol JONCA, a
list of about 300 Jews, who were deported >from the Storch synagogue in
Breslau on March 6, 1943 to Auschwitz. Unfortunately, the letter has
been lost.

On the list were my late mother's parents, Hermann and Alma ZERNIK,
and her siblings Bernhard and Edith.
I would like your help in getting a copy of the list.
Bernhard died on 20/5/1943 in Auschwitz, as mentioned in another post.
I would appreciate a surmised date of death for the other members of
the family.

Incidentally, one of the names on the list was Judith STERNBERG. a
nurse, who survived and wrote a book "In the Hell of Auschwitz".

Thanking you,
Jonathan Wreschner, Efrat, Israel jonathan.wreschner@...
