Hanka Cymbalista #germany

layla thomas <mikolayla_99@...>
 

Hello
I am just rtying my luck here since nobody can help me.
I am looking for my Aunt Hanka. She would be in her 70
or maybe even 80s. Used to live in Weiden Germany.
Had one son named Monek Cymbalista, who is now Manfred
Cymbalista. Her first husband was my uncle Motek
Cymbalista who died after many surgeries in Erlangen
Germany about 49 years ago. Her second husband was a
man named Tennenberg >from Israel (formerly Polen / Poland) who
died in a car accident while visiting Polen with my
aunt Hanka. After his death she remarried a man from
Berlin, moved there and was never heard or seen again.
My cousin, her son Monek, now Manfred, lives in
Hannover Germany, will not speak to me because he is
not Jewish anymore therefore dont want to be bothered
by me not even by phone his German wife Erika told me.
If anybody knows of her please let me know. Thank you.

There is a typographic error in the Standesamt address I reported yesterday.
It should read Friedrichshain, not Friedrichsgain.

Location of Jewish cemeteries of Kassel and Neustadt (Hessen) #germany

Itta'i & Einav Malbin <malbin@...>
 

Next week we're going to make a short visit to Hessen.
We want to visit both cemeteries - In Neustadt, Hessen, and Kassel, but
don't know how to find their exact location.
In Kassel it's a grave >from 1924 (probably the old cemetery).
In Neustadt, Hessen, I'm trying to contact Mr. Gies >from the Burgermeister
office, but I know his English is not so good.
We would like to know the location in advance so we'll be able to prepare
our driving direction. Thanks for any help,

All girls High School request thanks! Anyone have yearbooks? #general

BABYCAT3@...
 

Thank you so very much for all of the responses I received on my request for
names of all girl High Schools in NYC up and running in the mid 1930s to
1940s.
I am very confident that Washington Irving High School was the one, having
recognized the name in a few of your responses.

I am wondering if anyone has any yearbooks >from Washington Irving HS for any
of the years including and between 1936, up to and including 1943. My
mother-in-law would have attended during those years. She most likely would
have graduated in 1940,41,42, 43, or 44. I am hoping to find either her
picture, or any information she may have listed about herself, her studies,
etc. if that was a common practice back then as it has been in more recent
years. Her first name was either E. Ruth, Ruth E. or simply Ruth. The last
name she used at the time was either FERN, FINE, or FEIN.

Once again, as I had posted a few years back, I have a yearbook, the 1934
Microcosm, College of the City of New York, and will gladly do any lookups if
you think you may have a connection to someone who graduated that year.

Thank you and please respond privately,

Girls' High Schools in NYC #general

mimisimon@...
 

I tried to reply privately to Barbara (babycat@aol.com) but it bounced. Perhaps
the High School she's looking for is Julia Richman High School. It's not in the
lower East Side neighborhood but it, and Hunter High School which is connected
with Hunter College, are the only two I can think of. I'm not a native New
Yorker, however, so there may be more.

Re: NYC birth certificates -- what do they want from me?! #general

Ian,

If the birth record is after 1909, then you have no option but to
provide a death certificate for this person in order to get their
birth certificate. You will also have to state your relationship.

You can title them if you wish. I would need them by this Saturday,

If she died less than 100 years ago, there may be a problem. If you say
you are the closest living relative and can show birth certificates or death
or marriage certificates which confirm that, you may have some success even
if she died less than 100 years ago.

I've been trying -- and failing -- to get a birth certificate for my
relative out of NYC dept of health and mental hygiene. The certificate
is for my great grandparents' daughter, who was born in Brooklyn.

The first time I sent the request, it was returned with a standard form
which seemed to indicate that they wanted to see a copy of my photo ID
(although it was unclear -- the form listed many reasons for rejection,
two of which were checked with some text highlighted).

The second time, I included a copy of my ID, but all my paperwork was
sent back in my addressed envelope with no explanation at all! The only
clue, if it can be called that, is the scrawled number "15" in the
"office use only" bit of the request form.

Each time I had included everything they'd asked for: the form itself,
a cheque in US dollars drawn on a US bank, a copy of her death
certificate, a pound of flesh...

Can anyone give me some advice on how to proceed?

SITE CITE -Site Description: Geschichte-on-Demand #germany

Roger Lustig <trovato@...>
 

Last night, in my elation at the return of what had once been literad.de
and is now http://www.geschichte-on-demand.de/ I neglected to tell folks
what the site is all about.

Briefly:

Michael Rademacher (the "rad" in "literad") wrote a dissertation about
the structure of the Nazi party at the local level, using the Weser-Ems
region as an example. It was published last year.

In writing his dissertation, or perhaps for other reasons, he found the need
for a digital description of the German Empire >from the administrative
view. He created such a thing and put it on line. For some of us, its
temporary disappearance over the last 6 or 7 months caused serious
withdrawal symptoms.

Click on the link above and you'll see the following links to sections:

Dt.-oest. Ortsbuch:
==================

This is a historical gazetteer of just about every place in the 2nd and
3rd Reich, big and small. (Austria is included only for the Anschluss
years.) Census figures >from various times, town descriptions >from an
1894 reference work, etc., etc. When you click on a place name, you go
to the page for its county (Kreis). At the top you'll see general
information about what state the county belonged to, what its population
was, and whom the people voted for at various times. Changes over time
are also explained.

Deutsches Reich
===============
The previous section started at the bottom, i.e., with individual
cities, towns, villages, and estates. This is the top level, i.e.,
facts and figures about the Reich as a whole. That includes the names
of emperors, presidents and chancellors, general population figures,
some voting results, and the budget for 1893-4.

Laender
=======
The second level: states, plus level 2.5--the provinces of Prussia.
(Austria and Czech at bottom right.) Click on a link to go to a state
or provincial page.

Once again, there are the political leaders, population figures,
election results, and more. After that, a division into regions (called
Regierungsbezirke in Prussia and most other places), each region giving
links to the county-level pages that contain the Ortsbuch information.

Justiz
======
The judicial system, including the hierarchy of state courts. Mainly as
of 1894.

Landesfinanzaemter
==================
As of 1927: the hierarchy and location of internal revenue offices.

Armeekorps-Bezirke
==================
As of 1885, regional division of the army. This can be useful to family
historians, as young men were generally conscripted into a local or regional unit.

Gaue
====
Geographical structure of the Nazi party.

Kirchen
=======
Structure and hierarchy, mainly of the Evangelical-Lutheran and Catholic
churches. A link to a page of Jewish population statistics.

Minderheiten
============
Minorities: mainly non-German-speakers, also foreigners and a little about Jews.

Aufsaetze
=========
A few essays by the author.

Biographisches Archiv
=====================
Short bios, mainly of politicians, especially in the Nazi years.

Einwohnerverzeichnis Weser-Ems
==============================
Address book for the region covered in the dissertation, mostly as of
1936 or so. Jews lived mainly in the cities: Bremen, Emden, Aurich,
Osnabrueck, Leer and a few others. Obviously not complete--very little
for Bremen, for instance.

Quellen und Links
=================
Bibliography. No links yet (a few elsewhere on the site). Each data
page also has bibliography.
---------------------------------------------------------

All this stuff may sound deadly dull; and unless you need it, it is [dull].
But *not* looking here when you *do* need basic information means you're
practically asking to have your time wasted.
