I did answer "quite true" in my previous reply but this referred to
Galicia and Austria - however to the example that Peter gave re
London it is ***Quite Untrue***, with respect to British citizens!

The Family Records Centre {FRC], London has wonderful section for
unusual records - inc. consular BMD records *Consular returns 1849 -
1965.*

If your family lived outside the UK and had British nationality, they
registered their birth, marriage or death at the local British
Consulate. These records are all listed and retrievable. The records
of local Rhodesian or Canadian nationals, as cited by Peter, are not
registered in these books, only British citizens.

I have an Israelitische Kultus Gemeinde {IKG}, Vienna birth entry and
a smart British consular certificate as well. This dual entry system
into British records and the Jewish records was, I suspect, used my
many people.

Because I have a particular interest in Alexandria I always look at
these records, out of nostalgia, in the rare instances I visit the
FRC records. Alexandria seems to predominate in British consular
records worldwide, which is a little known fact, I have known for a
long time! I recognise many of the names of my childhood, now
scattered throughout the world. Cairo lags far behind.

Many Jews >from the Ottoman Empire had British nationality and you can
see their records in these books and order certificates. So did the
many Maltese who lived in Alexandria and the British too.

I love to browse through these volumes >from Alexandria > Casablanca>
Jerusalem > Vienna> Moscow> Paris> Shanghai> Bucharest>
Constantinople - they are all there. It is a by-gone age of
Empire.

I have never seen similar books in Vienna but the links are there in
the records if you know what to look for and your Habsburg Empire
family had relatives who lived and died in Vienna. If an
Austrian/Habsburg Jew was born in Alexandria, I suspect he/she too
was registered in a consular book. I will have to ask next time in
Vienna.

re London; last year I came across a little known data file held at
National Archives which was being transcribed - this contained
thousands of vital records >from obscure places which somehow missed
the normal consular books. I cannot remember the name of the file but
it is available on microfilm at the FRC and again, I found may
interesting Jewish births in places like Tangiers and Casablanca!
Ask on the top floor by the census data enquiry desk.

Quite untrue - {except it is a good place to visit]. You find links
in Vienna to Galician families you could find nowhere else in a
million years! I know because I have done it for many Jewishgenners!
And I am not a Galician - I did it as a challenge.

Message from the new Litvak SIG President #general

Howard Margol
 

Dear Litvak SIG Members and interested Litvaks,

I want to thank all of those who congratulated me and the new board members
for being elected to the Litvak SIG Board. All of us realize the importance
of the duties and responsibilities placed upon us and, speaking for myself as
well as for the other board members, we are ready to accept the challenge.

In some respects, the road ahead will not be an easy one. Some of the past
history of the SIG must be forgotten, mistakes of the past must be forgiven,
and ruffled feathers must be smoothed. With everyone's cooperation I am sure
this can be accomplished to the benefit of all. We cannot change the past but
we certainly can influence the future and make it a bigger and brighter one.

The election was held on Monday, late afternoon, on August 14. The next day,
the new Litvak SIG Board met and had it's first official board meeting. I am
very pleased to report that it was a very productive meeting. Everyone was
on the same page, a cooperative spirit prevailed, and it bodes well for the
future.

In my "campaigning" before the election, I promised to make the Litvak SIG
as transparent, and as member friendly, as possible. As soon as I, and the
other board members, have a chance to catch out breaths you will start to see
evidence of that transparency. Merle Kastner, the SIG Secretary, will produce
her notes taken at the initial board meeting of the new board and, as soon as
they have been approved for accuracy by the other board members, the minutes
of the board meeting will be displayed on the SIG Digest.

I am not prepared to go into all of the details at this time but I do want
to report that the confusion that may have existed in the past, involving the
vital records projects, will be made clear for the benefit of all. Joel
Ratner will concentrate on the Vilna Gubernia vital records and Aaron Roetenberg
will concentrate on the Kaunas Gubernia vital records. There will be no
duplication involved and no competing for the same financial donations as different
districts will be involved. At some point in the future, all of the vital
records will appear in the ALD as well as on JewishGen. Some preliminary work
has to be done prior to this happening but it will be done. Your patience
until the fine details are worked out will be appreciated.

Over the years, I know many good Litvaks sort of "dropped out" and ceased
paying their $36 annual dues to the Litvak SIG. In some cases I am sure you
felt you were not getting anything for your $36 so why pay it. The new board
hopes, by their actions and accomplishments, to show that you will receive
benefits >from being a dues paying member. If you want to wait until you see
evidence of that, fine. If you would like to show your support for the commitment
the board members have made by being elected to the new board, then a
remittance of your $36 dues now would be appreciated. Please follow the payment
instructions as shown on the SIG website. The SIG year is on a Calendar year basis
- January 1st through December 31st.

Sonja Lessne asked how to determine which of the several Piatras her
grandmother WEINBERG came >from in 1886. Searching the 1924/1925 Romania
Business and Organizational Directory via www.kalter.org/search, and
comparing the search results, which are organized by judet, with the list of
communities on image 2169 of volume II of this directory (necessary for me
because of my lack of familiarity with Romanian geography), I find WEINBERGs
in only one Piatra, Piatra-Neamtu. This is also the only Piatra listed in
the JewishGen ShtetlMaster database of Jewish Communities at
http://www.jewishgen.org/ShtetlSeeker/ShtetlMaster.asp. A connection to
Sonja's grandmother's family might be further suggested if her family shared
an uncommon occupation with someone listed in the directory (unfortunately,
WEINBERG is such a common surname that this could still well be
coincidence).

Hello GerSig,
I just joined the group. I have been doing genealogy research for
__2 months. I consider myself to be a novice in doing German Jewish
Genealogy research.

I live in suburban Perth Australia.

My native language is English.

I consider myself advanced in using a computer. My experience in
using the Internet is extensive.

I have identified the names and birth and death dates of my
grandparents, my great grandparents and some of my great great
grandparents.

My primary research goals now are to find out: my German Jewish heritage.

The family names and towns that I am researching are:

DE BUSZ Johannes - born in Hesse Germany about 1811 (died in Australia in
1898)
HAUSER Anna Elizabeth - born in Hesse about 1817 and married Johannes De
Busz in Hesse about 1838.
Their daughter is De BUSZ Katerina Elizabeth, born 1839 in Frankfurt.
ROSENBROCK, Frederick Wilhelm born in Hanover 1834 -1838 & married
Katerina de Busz in Australia.

I am sorry I have had 3-4 tries at getting this right, had to work out plain
text etc, hope this one is ok!
