Dear Genners,
I have in my possession a death certificate that I ordered >from the NYC
Municipal Archives that turned out not to be my relative. If there is a
researcher who would like this certificate please contact me. The name of
the deceased is Fannie Wolff who died 13 June 1947 and who was born 11 June
1879 in Russia. Her parents were Harris and Pearl Fishkin and her husband
was William Wolff. They lived on New Lots Avenue in Brooklyn. Her son-in-law
William Gottlieb gave the information.

MARCULESCU in Israel #romania

Bob Friedman
 

I'm searching for family or friends of Dinu MARCULESCU (born circa 1904,
probably in Bucharest,Romania) and/or his brother (given name unknown).
They both most likely immigrated to Israel in the
early 1960s and are now buried there (dates & locations unknown).

Dinu's son Ovidiu was born in Bucharest in 1936, went to Israel about
1962, immigrated to NY in 1969, and died here in April of this year.

Dinu's wife Emma (maiden name BOSSEL) died in Aachen, Germany in 1981.

Please reply privately. Thank you!

Sachsenhausen Database: Need Volunteers #germany

Lande
 

As part of the USHMMs continuing effort to make information available on
line, including links to relevant documents, I could use six volunteers to
enter Sachsenhausen information into an Excel database. The information
consists of typed pages giving the names of men arrested/released in 1938
after Kristallnacht. I propose to send each volunteer about ten pages -most
pages have less than a dozen names. Knowledge of German is not
needed - simply enter as it appears.

Requirements: Excel; Diacritics e.g umlauts; Careful entry
Fairly prompt completion

Project No. 3: Wuerttemberg Family Registers #germany

Roger Lustig
 

Dear all:

Yet another project. This one's for people who can deal with fairly ugly
records in German handwriting, and for people who would like to set up
spreadsheets for others to complete. It's larger than the others I just
announced.

Wuerttemberg is renowned among genealogists for its carefully-kept
family registers. On one sheet, one can find the dates & places of
birth, marriage and death of the head of household and spouse(s); the
names of the parents of each one; and the names of the children, along
with their dates of birth, etc. and possibly a cross-reference to the
sheet for the family that *they* established. Emigration is often noted,
as well. The ones in question were kept for most of the 19thC and into
the 20th; and some of the heads of household were born well before 1750.

The Baden-Wuerttemberg collection of Gatermann films--the first one to
appear on line--contains over 150 registers of this kind >from over 70
localities. Some of them duplicate others, but in the interest of
maximum legibility, I think it's best to index them all. Since these are
Gatermann films, there are no originals left to check.

As with the Hessen Gatermann project, I propose making a short index,
i.e., not transcribing most of the detailed information. Here's what I
think we should capture:

--locality

--item number in the collection

--image and/or sheet number

--Role (husband, wife, 2nd wife, etc.)

--For heads of households and spouses:

----Given name and surname

----Year and town of birth

Many if not most of these communities were relatively small, meaning
that users of the index will want to check several, if not all the
sheets in a set, because it's generally likely that people with the same
surname were in fact of the same family. That's why indexing the parents
ought to be sufficient. (If we were doing everyone on a sheet, the
project would take years and years.)

This is another project where people who can't read the handwriting can
contribute by entering the first 4 items on the list above, and
otherwise setting up an entry grid.

Here is a spreadsheet containing a list of registers and an example of
the index. https://tinyurl.com/WuerttFamReg

Please email me at this address if you'd like to participate.

New Project: Surname adoptions west of the Rhine--in French! #germany

Roger Lustig
 

Dear all:

Here's another project based on records available via familysearch.org.

The NALDEX project has indexed/transcribed the contents of
surname-adoption registers >from Prussia and Lippe-Detmold, and more such
will be added soon. These registers had one line for each household,
though they sometimes mentioned more than one person.

In what's today's Germany west of the Rhine, Jewish surname adoption
took place in 1808 following Napoleon's Decree of Bayonne. The records
of these events are scattered all over the region, many of them still in
the local registry offices that have maintained civil registration since
1798.

Fortunately, several thousand of them are preserved on films that
familysearch.org has put on line. They differ >from other
surname-adoption lists in several ways:

1) There is an entry for each person in a family.

2) They are written out instead of being in printed tables.

3) They often contain the dates and places of birth for children.

4) They are usually in French.

So, for those of you who would help out were it not for the difficulty
of German language and script, here's your chance! Most of these records
are fairly legible and in handwriting that anyone would recognize today.

If you'd like to help out, please write to me at this email address.
Please let me know if there's a particular region you'd like to work on.

Also: if you have copies of *other* lists of this type, please let me
know. They, too, should be transcribed and indexed. What's on film is a
fraction of the whole.

I look forward to hearing >from you!

For many years, the late Michael Rademacher's site,

information for the former German Reich. Michael's family kept this
popular site up for years, but now it's gone blank.

Not to worry--nothing in cyberspace is ever really lost.

New project: East German Gatermann films #germany

Roger Lustig
 

Dear All,

It's been too long since this group undertook a new project, and I, as
your research coordinator, apologize for that. Here is the first of
several projects that you're invited to take part in.

https://tinyurl.com/GatermannEast is a spreadsheet listing the contents
of the East German Gatermann films. These films display Jewish vital
records and similar documents. The originals are lost, so in most cases
these films are all we have left.

They cover Jewish communities >from the territory of the former German
Democratic Republic (except for Berlin). Over 100 localities are
represented, >from Annaberg to Zerbst. Many of these communities were
very small; others, such as Dresden, had a Jewish population that peaked
above 5,000.

About 60% of these records are available to anyone via familysearch.org.
Just go to the catalog and enter the film number. When you get to the
page that describes your records of interest, scroll down and then click
on the camera icon to view the records directly.

The ones that are not available for home viewing are shaded grey in the
spreadsheet. Their availability depends on the age and type of the
youngest records on them. If they are not freely available under German
privacy laws, you have to look at the microfilms the old-fashioned way.
Alas, one protected record takes the whole reel of film out of distribution.

Please email me at this address if you're interested in indexing one or
more localities. Some of the contents of these files are very easy to
read; others, nearly impossible. Since each case is different, we'll
have to develop a strategy for dealing with each one.

Those of you who don't read German (or old German handwriting) can be of
great assistance too. As with the Hessen Gatermann project, participants
can contribute by setting up the entry framework: item numbers, page
numbers, etc.

Thanks in advance to all of you!

INTRO- Researching the SPRUNG family from Leipzig, Germany and Brody, Poland #germany

Peter Sprung <psprung@...>
 

Dear GerSig,

I just joined this group. I've been doing genealogy research for only
a few months, and consider myself a beginner. I live in Washington,
D.C. and my native language is English. I'm a first generation American.
I'm an intermediate in using a computer. I have extensive experience
in using the internet.

I've conducted research on the website of Yad Vashem, the "Memorial
Book of the Victims of Persecution of Jews under the National
Socialist Tyranny," and several other sources.

For certain of my great-grandparents, grandparents, great aunts and
uncles, aunts and uncles, and second cousins, I've identified familial
relationships, birth dates and locations, death dates and locations,
of dates and locations of deportation and incarceration, etc.

Insofar as most of these persons were murdered in the Holocaust, I
know comparatively little about them or their histories. Accordingly,
my primary research goals are to:

(1) identify biographical information and any other information about
the individuals listed below, as well as other family members; (2)
connect with individuals who may have already collected information
about these individuals or other family members, or receive direction
to others who who may have collected such information; (3) identify
investigative leads or sources of information with which I can conduct
additional research; and (4) identify the names, biographical
information, and any other information about any other relatives of
the individuals listed below.

German SIG #Germany INTRO- Researching the SPRUNG family from Leipzig, Germany and Brody, Poland #germany

Peter Sprung <psprung@...>
 

Dear GerSig,

I just joined this group. I've been doing genealogy research for only
a few months, and consider myself a beginner. I live in Washington,
D.C. and my native language is English. I'm a first generation American.
I'm an intermediate in using a computer. I have extensive experience
in using the internet.

I've conducted research on the website of Yad Vashem, the "Memorial
Book of the Victims of Persecution of Jews under the National
Socialist Tyranny," and several other sources.

For certain of my great-grandparents, grandparents, great aunts and
uncles, aunts and uncles, and second cousins, I've identified familial
relationships, birth dates and locations, death dates and locations,
of dates and locations of deportation and incarceration, etc.

Insofar as most of these persons were murdered in the Holocaust, I
know comparatively little about them or their histories. Accordingly,
my primary research goals are to:

(1) identify biographical information and any other information about
the individuals listed below, as well as other family members; (2)
connect with individuals who may have already collected information
about these individuals or other family members, or receive direction
to others who who may have collected such information; (3) identify
investigative leads or sources of information with which I can conduct
additional research; and (4) identify the names, biographical
information, and any other information about any other relatives of
the individuals listed below.

Awesome info, Yefim! Thanks very much. Now I just need to learn Russian (smile)

It doesn't look like I will be able to attend the conference. My 16-year-old pup needs too much
care for me to be away so long. But you and my fellow genealogists will be in my heart and prayers.

Hugs,

Adrienne
