Many thanks for your very helpful remarks.  I have been in touch with them some five years ago, and had a similar experience. Since I could not travel to Arolsen, I was in touch with different assistants, 
did not understand why, was not sure if multiple requests were not seen in a negative light. Is it possible that a visit to Arolsen will enable one to see material in addition to what one may get after filling out 
an inquiry form and getting an answer? Must an appointment be fixed before visiting the facility? 

Kind regards,

Re: Death in New York City and burial in New Jersey #usa #germany

Why my Brooklyn family was buried in New Jersey.   My grandfather belonged to the New York Social Club which had a section in the large Washington Cemetery in Brooklyn probably since the early 1900s.   But by the 1950s the plot was full, so the society bought land in a nearby cemetery in New Jersey, so that is where my grandparent's children , some grandchildren,  and some cousins are buried.

Re: parents as "cousins" on Ancestry.com #dna

Lee Hover
 

I have a first cousin, Arlene,  who married our mutual first cousin. Her parents, Bernard and Esther, were also first cousins. Bernard's parents were also first cousins. And I suspect that one of his parents was also the result of a cousin marriage.  This makes for a very tangled tree, and I often say that the old song "I'm My own Grandpa" was written about my family. Try explaining that your Uncle was also your cousin and so on.  In the case of Arlene, her aunt was also her mother-in-law.   And, no, the family was not orthodox.

In 2010 I was one of several contributors indexing records for JDC. Included were Remittance Lists names.  Today I checked a few names that I know should be there, and they were.

There is a search box on the JDC website.

grandparents' names on Vienna birth certificates? #general #austria-czech

Does anyone know whether the grandparents' names appeared on birth certificates registered in Vienna ? Would this apply to a birth in Vienna in 1906?
Any help will be much appreciated.

Re: A question about tattoos and Auschwitz #general #holocaust

A family friend was never in Auschwitz but he was tattooed, presumably when kept at a children's detention center before he escaped through the children's march to the United States.

Re: How to make sense of two death records that don't make sense to me #germany

jbonline1111@...
 

Could they be cousins or sisters born to the same father but different mothers?  While it is unusual for sisters or cousins to have the same name, if they were named for the same person, it's not impossible.  My grandfather and his uncle had the same names, presumably for this reason.

Re: A question about age #general

jbonline1111@...
 

Do the marriage and death certificates give her age?  They usually do.  This should give you more information as to how to interpret her age in 189, as should the 1900 census.

Re: Female Maiden Name on Headstone #belarus #general #russia #names #translation

Irina Fridman
 

In Soviet Russia some women preferred to keep their maiden name and not adopt the name of their husband. It was a common phenomenon. Sometimes, the husband would take the wife’s name, as was the case with relatives. My uncle’s wife retained her maiden name throughout the marriage. When moving to America, the uncle adopted his wife’s name.

​My grandfather married his niece, that is, my grandmother was the daughter of his sister. 
 
This makes a very curious tree design. On the other hand, it saves time when doing genealogical work as I have less distinct family branches than most people.
