Looking for families from Markt Berolzheim #germany

Lin Herz
 

Hi GerSIG Friends,

L'Shana Tova! Wishing you all a sweet, healthy, happy year.

Daniel BURMANN, the volunteer archivist of Markt Berolzheim is writing a
book about the Jewish families who lived there. He is looking for
descendants of these families: ENGEL, WOLF, STERN, SCHNEIDER, HIRSCH
and HERZ. If you are descended >from one of these families, or other
Jewish families >from Markt Berolzheim let me know and I'll give
you his contact information.

I should add some information about Daniel, so that no one is wondering
what kind of person this is. Daniel first contacted me a few years ago
when he was going to be putting on an exhibition about the Jews from
Markt Berolzheim who fought in WW1. He gave me some names of people with
the surname HERZ asking if they were related to me. I was only familiar
with one of the names. and gave him photos and information about my
grandfather's first cousin, Max HERZ. I told him that my grandfather's
surname was LEVI. Ii was his mother whose maiden name was HERZ.

Daniel asked for photos and information about my grandfather and his
siblings. I gave him information and also told him that all of his
siblings were murdered in the Holocaust. Not only did Daniel find
military records on my grandfather and his siblings, and include them in
the exhibition. He also told in the exhibition about the fact that they
were murdered in the Holocaust etc. . But that=E2=80=99s not all. Daniel
did some research for me and through him I found out how all the Herzes
he had mentioned were related to me. All of them were the sons of my
great grandmother's siblings. He found all kinds of genealogical
information for me about my grandmother's siblings (I only knew
about 1 of them at the time) and their sons who fought in the war. Since
then he has found and shared all kinds of wonderful documents and
information about my ancestors and cousins, etc. >from Markt Berolzheim.
He even took photos of important sites to my family.

Sincerely, Lin Herz, Palm Bay, Florida lin32905@gmail.com

Benefit of Austrian Citizenship #austria-czech

Jan Meisels Allen
 

Tony Hausner asked what if any benefits there are for descendants of
Holocaust survivors to obtain Austrian citizenship under the new law.

Those who would like an EU passport and meet the criteria for Austrian
citizenship under the new law, is one way they could then get an EU
passport.

New regulations in Poland on release of civil registration records #austria-czech

Gesher Galicia SIG
 

Gesher Galicia recently learnt that the Polish Ministry of the
Interior had earlier this year introduced an amendment to the law of
2015 that applies to Civil Registration Offices. The amendment is
referred to as:
"Art. 128. - Transfer of civil registration books to archives - Law on
civil registration records",
and forms part of a law of February 21, 2019.

The first paragraph sums up the existing law, with a 100-year rule for
making birth records held in civil registration offices publicly
accessible, and an 80-year restriction on marriage and death records.
The text then creates a new obligation on the staff in civil
registration offices (USC) to find proof of death for people listed in
birth books and marriage books, before such books are made accessible
- even if a book is more than 100 (or 80) years old. If this
obligation was carried out meticulously to the letter, it would be
virtually impossible to clear any birth or marriage book issued in the
past century for public release.

The next paragraph of the text appears to make things somewhat easier,
by allowing the transfer of a book in some circumstances, even if the
death certificate cannot be found.
" ...If it is determined that the death certificate has not been drawn
up for the person and no information on death has been registered and
that the person has not been issued a PESEL number, the head of the
registry office is entitled to forward the books to the appropriate
state archives, after the periods referred to in paragraph I [that is,
of 100 years or 80 years]."

A PESEL number is a sort of social security number, which a person
would keep throughout their lifetime, and which is used to record
events including births, deaths and marriages. The PESEL system was
introduced in the 1970s.

It remains to be seen how strictly staff in civil registration offices
search for death records (records that would otherwise be due for
release) of people named in birth and marriage records. Even at best,
there are likely to be considerable delays in making these books
available.

A transfer >from USC Warsaw to AGAD of around 30 Jewish vital record
books (>from the former eastern Galicia) was expected in February of
this year, but was delayed at the time for reasons apparently
unrelated to any new regulations. After further delays, it was
expected to arrive in September, but has still not appeared. It is
unclear whether at least the death registers in this consignment (with
death records up to 1938) will be transferred this year. Death
records, of course, are not included in the new regulation.

For further information, please contact: info@geshergalicia.org
Please do NOT reply to this email.

Austria-Czech SIG #Austria-Czech Benefit of Austrian Citizenship #austria-czech

Jan Meisels Allen
 

Tony Hausner asked what if any benefits there are for descendants of
Holocaust survivors to obtain Austrian citizenship under the new law.

Those who would like an EU passport and meet the criteria for Austrian
citizenship under the new law, is one way they could then get an EU
passport.

Austria-Czech SIG #Austria-Czech New regulations in Poland on release of civil registration records #austria-czech

Gesher Galicia SIG
 

Gesher Galicia recently learnt that the Polish Ministry of the
Interior had earlier this year introduced an amendment to the law of
2015 that applies to Civil Registration Offices. The amendment is
referred to as:
"Art. 128. - Transfer of civil registration books to archives - Law on
civil registration records",
and forms part of a law of February 21, 2019.

The first paragraph sums up the existing law, with a 100-year rule for
making birth records held in civil registration offices publicly
accessible, and an 80-year restriction on marriage and death records.
The text then creates a new obligation on the staff in civil
registration offices (USC) to find proof of death for people listed in
birth books and marriage books, before such books are made accessible
- even if a book is more than 100 (or 80) years old. If this
obligation was carried out meticulously to the letter, it would be
virtually impossible to clear any birth or marriage book issued in the
past century for public release.

The next paragraph of the text appears to make things somewhat easier,
by allowing the transfer of a book in some circumstances, even if the
death certificate cannot be found.
" ...If it is determined that the death certificate has not been drawn
up for the person and no information on death has been registered and
that the person has not been issued a PESEL number, the head of the
registry office is entitled to forward the books to the appropriate
state archives, after the periods referred to in paragraph I [that is,
of 100 years or 80 years]."

A PESEL number is a sort of social security number, which a person
would keep throughout their lifetime, and which is used to record
events including births, deaths and marriages. The PESEL system was
introduced in the 1970s.

It remains to be seen how strictly staff in civil registration offices
search for death records (records that would otherwise be due for
release) of people named in birth and marriage records. Even at best,
there are likely to be considerable delays in making these books
available.

A transfer >from USC Warsaw to AGAD of around 30 Jewish vital record
books (>from the former eastern Galicia) was expected in February of
this year, but was delayed at the time for reasons apparently
unrelated to any new regulations. After further delays, it was
expected to arrive in September, but has still not appeared. It is
unclear whether at least the death registers in this consignment (with
death records up to 1938) will be transferred this year. Death
records, of course, are not included in the new regulation.

Austria-Czech SIG #Austria-Czech New University Records on the All Galicia Database #austria-czech

Gesher Galicia SIG
 

Gesher Galicia is pleased to announce the addition of new records to
our open-access database: https://search.geshergalicia.org/

This communication refers to the Jewish Medical Students Project,
which brings records and biographical information on Galician students
who attended several universities in Austria-Hungary and in the
successor states (post 1918). New records added to the AGD include the
following:

-- Lwow University (1919-1939) >from the State Archive of Lviv Oblast
(DALO, Fond 26/section 15; Ukraine)

-- Prague University: German and Czech universities (1882-1939) from
the Charles University Archive (the Czech Republic).

In total about 3,500 records of Jewish medical students and midwives
have been indexed to date. Earlier uploads included records >from the
following universities:

-- Jagiellonian University (1802-1918)
-- Lwow University (1894-1918)
-- Pest University (1770-1921)

In addition to the Gesher Galicia database (free access), members of
Gesher Galicia can examine the expanded information on Jewish students
(regarding parents and their occupations, places of medical practice,
Holocaust-related, etc.) after login via the Members Portal:
https://www.geshergalicia.org/login/ in the Archival Records.

We welcome receiving additional biographical details and the records on Jewish
medical students found in our database. To that end, please contact us
at: info@geshergalicia.org.

In 2020 we plan to add additional indexes >from Jagiellonian University
(1919-1939), with the records >from other universities to follow.
