Perhaps the following extracts >from the book: "Lodz - The Last Ghetto in
Poland" by Dr. Michal Unger, will be a start.

Page 168:
In September 1940 Greiser decided to transfer unprofessional workers to work
outside the ghetto - mainly to build the highway
(Reichsautobahn) Frankfurt - Poznan. The work was supervised by the company:
Oberste Bauleitung Reichsautobahn Berlin.
The same company also constructed forced labour camps in Wartheland for
workers not involved in the highway.

Page 319 (in a chapter describing the transports >from Lodz Ghetto):
On March 30, 1943 the Germans deported 945 people,
most of them men who returned >from forced labour camps in Poznan in a very
poor physical state.... It is not clear how this people were killed;
a few days earlier the Chelmno camp was closed.

On June 8, 1942, 280 people were transported >from Lodz Ghetto to Poznan.
Another 280 people were sent >from Lodz Ghetto to Poznan on June 15, 1942.

I am seeking any information as to what happened to these people after
their
arrival in Poznan.

Generali Insurance - deadline passed #austria-czech

Paul King <samorai@...>
 

On 15 November last, Tomer Brunner posted information regarding life
insurance claims >from Generali [see below for full e-mail]. I double-checked
with Tomer and he informed me that claims could still be made to January
2007. He provided me with the Jerusalem office telephone number. I contacted
them and received the following information:

1. They do not handle forms for Generali.
2. The date for making claims has long expired.
3. Generali does (or did not?) handle claims originating >from holders in
Germany.
4. Contact Generali in Italy for any further information.

Several respondents wrote giving a brief synopsis of their experience in
making claims. I found at least 7 names of relatives on the Generali list.
All have living direct descendants - either offspring or 'grand offspring'.
I contacted one son of a person on the list who had two insurance policies
listed in his name. The son informed me that he made a claim on the two
policies without legal help and, while it took some time (about 2 years),
the relatively simple process resulted in the payment of a sum which was
more than symbolic, but did not attain the amount that a dormant account
bearing interest would normally pay.

The person on the Generali list left Germany in the mid-1930s and passed
away in the 1960s. Thus, the list is not restricted to Holocaust victims.

I have no further information to add to the above.

Re: Immigration to Canada #bessarabia

Alan Greenberg
 

Robert makes a good point about the lack of clear images at this
site. I don't know whether they were scanned at low resolution, or
the resolution was lowered to reduce image size, but the quality is
far less than that of the original microfilms. I know that in cases
where I already have photocopies of the microfilm, those paper copies
are far clearer than the digital images.

Presumably someone may come up with a master set of column headings
for the various forms. But for reading the squiggly handwritting, the
only current solution is to go back to the microfilms once you have
the detailed location.

Grandfather on 2 ships at same time #general

Jackie Wasserstein
 

I found my grandfather, Jacob Granat, in the Ellis Island database. He
sailed on the S.S. Merion which left Antwerp November 16, 1907 and arrived at
Ellis Island on November 29, 1907. Just recently I found my grandfather listed
on another ship's manifest. This ship was the S.S. Cambroman which left
Antwerp on November 9, 1907 and arrived at Ellis Island on November 24, 1907.
The other passengers on that page of the Merion's manifest were also listed on
the Cambroman's manifest. Obviously they couldn't have sailed on 2
different ships at the same time. Did something happen to the Cambroman and
all the passengers were then transferred to the Merion?

"Held for bond" on Passenger Manifest #general

Doug Mason
 

The currently available free "expanded immigration records" tells me
that Samuel MALZ arrived in San Francisco on 14 May 1949, travelling
from Shanghai on the "President Wilson".
The "Manifest of In-bound Passengers" says "hold for bond", and the
bottom of the page says "line ... 16 detained", followed by some words
which might be a signature.

Can anyone tell me where I might be able to find any relevant information?

I would love to hear Alex expand on this subject if he is willing.
Where can one find a list of the names that were restricted? Was it
true only in Russia or also in Russian Poland? During what time
periods? Certainly, Abram and Mojzesz appear in Polish records.

Re: austrian military records #hungary

g_hirsch@...
 

I am not informed about the Austrian military archives, I visited the "Hadtortenelmi leveltar" in Buda and they found a "Belohnungs-Antrag" for my father of the K. u. K. Infanterie Regiment 101 .2 Feldbattelion. By some luck during a visit in my hometown, I saw in an antique bookshop a book "101-es zaszlo alatt" a book >from 1934, with pictures and short (selfgiven) biography of the regiments members. I believe this was quite common. This might be sources.

Betreff: [h-sig] austrian military records

Has anyone successfully obtained records >from the military archives
(Osterreichisches Staatsarchiv - Kriegsarchiv) in Vienna, for
hungarians who served in the k und k army?
I sent them an inquiry, and received a reply >from the director of the
archive, dr. Tepperberg, offering to do a paid search, for a
reasonable estimated fee. but, they emphasize that the primary
records, for persons with nationality outside of present-day austria,
were "left with the successor states following the peace declaration
of saint-germain (1919), and all these documents have been to a large
extent destroyed". this would seem to indicate that the records are
in budapest, if they exist at all.
