Intro and Searching SCHWARZ Burial in Berlin #germany

Ed Zwieback <ezwieback@...>
 

Hello GerSig,
I just joined the group. I have been doing genealogy research for many years
and have discovered much about my father's extended family, in Hungary,
Croatia and Austria, But I consider myself to be a novice in doing German Jewish
Genealogy research.

see my family at: http://ezwieback.com/ZPK-p/index.htm

I consider myself expert in using a computer. My experience in using
the Internet is extensive . Also, I have access to the Mormon FHL films
here in Los Angeles and do plan to be at the New York Public Library in late May.

I am searching for more info about a cousin Artur SCHWARZ who died in
Berlin in 1929. Arthur was born 14 Apr 1902 in Vienna and according to info
(meldezettal) >from MA8 Archives, Vienna, Artur died in Berlin on 25 Oct 1929.

In the last few years in response to my requests, I have received copies of
complete Death Records >from MA8 Archives,Vienna, which were very useful.
These death records include info on surviving family, which is how I
discovered this cousin. I hope to find the Death Record for Artur in
Berlin. But first, I think I have to locate his burial location.

So, I am searching for the burial (cemetery) info for Artur SCHWARZ in Berlin.
I hope there is a database for Jewish burials in Berlin similar to that in
Vienna; http://friedhof.ikg-wien.at/search.asp?lang=en

I appreciate any help in locating info about Artur SCHWARZ in Berlin.

Naming practices #germany

George Arnstein <george304n@...>
 

To answer the question:
The socalled laws of emancipation, around 1800,
usually mandated use of last names, as described in:

Dreifuss, Erwin Emanuel. Die Familiennamen der
Juden unter besonderer Beruecksichtigung… Baden.
[Family names of Jews with special emphasis on
Baden.] Based on his Heidelberg U. doctoral
dissertation. Frankfurt 1927.
My English translation and summary appeared in
Stammbaum Issue 16, Jan.2000 (Leo Baeck Inst. NY City).

Dreifuss also lists the dates for various other
jurisdictions, to which I can add that in
Wuerttemberg, for example, surrounded by earlier
mandates to adopt names, there was much voluntary
anticipation.

Re. German Naming practices in 19th century - Hamburg #germany

Justin Levy <levyduffy@...>
 

Hamburg’s Jews were amongst the latest to have to adopt fixed surnames.
On 21 December 1848 the German parliament in Frankfurt had passed the law covering
the basic rights of the German people (Reichsgesetz betreffend die Grundrechte des
deutschen Volkes). Paragraph 16 ensured that these rights could in no way be
affected by a person's religion.

Hamburg’s governing city council passed a bye-law (Provisorische Verordnung) on 21
February 1849 on the implementation of the aforementioned paragraph 16. Article 2
of this by-law made the adoption of fixed surnames a prerequisite to the granting
of full citizenship.

The council also expressed the expectation that families that had been using a
surname for quite some time would not change that name. Seemingly few did.

In reality surnames were not all that fixed at all. One of the branches of my
family that originated in Hessen had used LEVI as a surname since the early 18th
century, but changed it to TRAUBE when they moved to Hamburg in the late 1840s.
Throughout the 1850s many records show the use of LEVY TRAUBE as a sort of
double-barrelled surname. By the end of the 1860s it was TRAUBE alone. However, by
the 1890s, my gggm was giving her maiden name as LEVY again.

Hope this helps you somewhat. Regards,

Take a Look at Friday's Conference Schedule! #dna

Roni Seibel Liebowitz <Roni@...>
 

Before you book that return plane ticket, or plan to hop on the
train to your summer home or to take off for the beach, please look
at the Conference's Friday morning schedule. We have some very
exciting talks and events planned that morning that you won't want
to miss.

We have been blessed with over 260 presentations. Rather than
keeping everyone awake until midnight every night to attend them, we
opted to schedule a full morning of sessions on Friday, Aug. 18,
from 8:00 a.m. to 12:15 p.m.
If you're interested in Jews >from Lithuania, Ukraine, Hungary,
Greece, Transcarpathia, Scotland -- or New York...

If you'd like to gain exposure on the Internet, unearth deep dark
secrets about the criminals in your family's past, or find other
"Jews in the news"...

If you need advice on getting organized, publishing your research,
or conserving your photos and documents...

If you're searching for living relatives or trying to learn more
about Shoah victims or survivors...

If you hope to understand your "chochka" (or how a word comes to be
spelled that way)...

If you want to hear the story of a genealogist who became "suddenly
Jewish"...

...Friday has something for you. I suggest that you read about
Friday's sessions on the Conference web site

www.jgsny2006.org/conference_program.cfm

One of these programs requires some preparation. For "The Jewish
Chochka and Ephemera Road Show" (Session 408), Rafi Guber requests
that registrants bring family items, documents, photos, and ephemera
to the conference. He and a panel will help determine when and from
where the items originated and any other secrets they may reveal
about your family. Please remember to bring along items for this
exciting session.

Stay through the 18th and leave on a chai!
