the images when they arrive.

The index pages that follow each of the actual, individual birth,
marriage or death records should be in Polish (Roman characters) and
will give you the actual document (AKT) number of each record. I suggest
that while you're at the family history library you do the following:

1. Starting at the beginning of the reel locate the first *face sheet*
listing (in Polish) which will show the microfilm number (e.g., Mikrofilm
Nr. xxxxx), name of the town (e.g., Karszewa), types of vital records
(e.g., birth and marriage), number of records, and range of dates.

I strongly recommend printing this page for future reference!

2. Scroll forward until you reach the first index page listing the
names/surnames of your ancestors. (Please note: The index page always
appears *after* not before the individual records.)

3. On a sheet of paper, jot down the AKT numbers and names shown on the
index page, then

4. Roll back the microfiche until you locate the first of your ancestor's
vital record and send to the printer.

Now scroll forward until you locate the next index page.

Repeat steps #2 - 4.

Be sure to identify each of the vital records by writing in the margin
(or on the back of each record) the FHL microfiche number shown on the
microfiche box, the document (AKT) number, type of vital record (birth,
marriage or death), and the names of your ancestors. This might seem
tedious but it saves you >from having to identify each record later on,
especially if you don't know the language (in this case, Russian).

Aschermann Prague -- Cafe #austria-czech

pinardpr@...
 

Dear SIG,

I don't know to what extent it might be interesting for Ms. Mitchell's search. There was a "Kaffee-
Restaurant Aschermann" in Prague, which was an important meeting place for Prague Jews in the 1930's
and especially during the Nazi occupation.

It was located in Prague I., house conscription number 731, which is now Dlouha 33 (Lange Gasse 33). So, it
shared premises with important institutions of Prague's Jewish Cultural Community (Juedische
Kultusgemeinde -- Zidovska Nabozenska Obec) including the Labor Office, the Palestine Office the Keren
Kajemet and Keren Hajesod foundations and other important Zionist organizations.

One can see frequent advertisements for Cafe Aschermann on the last pages of the early editions of the
Juedisches Nachrichtenblatt/Zidovske listy, which are available online at:
http://deposit.d-nb.de/online/jued/jued.htm

The manager was one Armin Rado, who was apparently murdered at Sobibor-Ossowa in May 1942
(Transport Ax >from Terezin on 9 May 1942).
