Hello All,

In the past I was able to use the site www.landesarchive-bw.de to search for
BMD records by the starting letter of a town name in Baden Wuerttemburg..
The site seems to be changing, and I can no longer seem to find what I am
looking for. I used to be able to search Bestande und bestellung, click on
J, enter 386, then select Bu 15 and get to the list of towns.

Can anyone provide me with a primer on how to continue to use this site.

Thanks, Best regards, Richard D. Oppenheimer r.d.oppenheimer@gmail.com

(US) National Archives Civil War Research Guide #usa

Jan Meisels Allen
 

For those researching their ancestors in the Civil War this may be of
interest. The (US) National Archives has a Civil War research guide
available at:
https://www.archives.gov/research/military/civil-war/resources. It covers
both Union and Confederate records, where and how to find the records,
pension records and more. Pension records are very interesting as they
provide information on what the soldier did during the war.

A new feature is that Civil War paper pension records can now be ordered
online: https://tinyurl.com/2slr6f

Jews and the Civil War

It is estimated that 10,000 Jewish soldiers fought in the Civil War: about
7,000 for the Union and 3,000 for the Confederacy, with some 600 Jewish
soldiers killed in battle.
(Donald Altschiller, "Jews," Encyclopedia of the American Civil War: A
Political, Social, and Military History, eds. David Stephen Heidler, Jeanne
T. Heidler, and David J. Coles (2000). W. W. Norton, p. 1070-1071.)

There were nine Jewish generals and 21 Jewish colonels participating in the
war.

Judah Benjamin served as the second Confederate States Secretary of War and
Secretary of State. Before the Civil War, Benjamin was the first Jewish
Cabinet member in a North American government.

JewishGen Updates Holocaust Database #usa

Nolan Altman
 

JewishGen.org is pleased to announce the completion of its most recent
update to the JewishGen Holocaust Database. The database can be accessed
directly at https://www.jewishgen.org/databases/Holocaust/ The database now
includes more than 2.75 million records >from approximately 200 component
databases.

All component databases (individual data sets) have a project introduction.
The introduction gives you further information about the historical

the data set.

A listing of each of the component databases can be found by scrolling down
the main search page. All data can be searched in one database-wide search

The database continues to grow, thanks in large part to partnerships with
other organizations and receiving interesting original research by JewishGen

preservation and "publishing" of these pieces.

Grunes family from Tscherbatchinze near Zvenigorodka #ukraine

Jan Grounes <jan@...>
 

Hello,
My grandfather, Jacob GRUNES, was born in the village Tscherbatchinze near Zvenigorodka in 1881. As far as I know they were 12 siblings; he had 2 brothers, Morris and Meyer, and a sister, Sarah Schnitzer, who emigrated to the US, and a sister that lived in Kiev in 1962. The remaining siblings are unknown to me.
Their parents were Mikhail Grunes, farmer, and Frieda Jelinski (died in 1917).
That is all I know about them and their families. Any information about this family would be most appreciated.

Need to locate records from Czortkow/Chortkiv #galicia

Claudia Bullock <cbulloc8@...>
 

Hello,

I am seeking assistance in locating and obtaining records which do not
seem to have been digitized. The records I am seeking were created
prior to World War I, in Czortkow, Austria, however, today, this town
is known as Chortkiv, and is located in Ukraine.

My great grandfather, Samuel Newman, was married in Czortkow to my
great grandmother Nettie Gottlieb, around 1890, and to a 2nd wife
named Nettie Gronich, around 1895, after the death of his 1st wife.
Samuel Newman and Nettie Gottlieb Newman had two children named
Morris (born April 1892), and Max (born Dec. 1893). Samuel Newman
and Nettie Gronich Newman had two children named Jacob (born Sept.
1901) and Irving (born May 1906).

Samuel Newman died in Czortkow, around 1906. After his death, all 4
of the children eventually came to the U.S., including Samuel's 2nd wife,
arriving at varying points in time. All that I know about the family has
been gleaned >from the Census records, Naturalization Records, and
Passenger Manifests of the 4 Newman children, and my great
grandfather's 2nd wife. Based on the information I have, I've been able
to determine the names of Samuel's siblings, some of whom do have
digitized records on JRI Poland or Gesher Galicia (showing up in the
nearby town of Khorostkiv/Chorostkow (sp?)), but somehow it seems
that Samuel's records were missed. Consequently, I believe that I know
the name of both of Samuel's parents (although the father was actually
married twice). One of the siblings is named Seinwel, which sounds
similar to Samuel, but is a younger man, who was not born until 1877.

The specific records I am most interested in finding are as follows:

Death Records for Samuel Newman (died about 1906) and Nettie
Gottlieb Newman (died before 1895)
Marriage Record for Samuel Newman and Nettie Gottlieb (about 1890)
Marriage Record for Samuel Newman and Nettie Gronich (about 1895)
Birth record for Samuel Newman (birth date unknown, parents believed
to be Elukim David Newman and Gittel Rasha Newman)
Birth record for Nettie Gottlieb Newman (birth date unknown, parents
unknown)

I would also like Birth records for all 4 of Samuel's Children. A birth
record for Jacob, whose mother was Nettie Gronich, was found in JRI
Poland, however, I have not been able to locate records for the other 3
children.

I am aware that at least one person has been successful in finding a
death record in JRI Poland for an ancestor who died in Czortkow the
same year that my great grandfather died, and yet my great
grandfather seems to be missing. Is this unusual?

I originally wrote to the Ukraine SIG for assistance on the advice of
Todd Knowles >from Family Search, based on an assumption that the
records I'm looking for would be held in Ukraine, however, the
moderator >from that group suggested that it would be best for me to
contact this SIG for assistance, because of Czortkow/Chortkiv being
within the geographic area covered by this group.

Trying to find records for relatives in Israel? Here is an opportunity to
understand what records are available and where to begin your research. Some
records have now been digitized, others still not. Different Archives have
different collections, we'll go through the various options. What's in English
and what's in Hebrew - we'll cover that as well. Be sure to prepare questions and
bring along names you may want to research!

matsevot.
