Reference Book on Jews from Posen #poland

Geoff Kaiser <geoff_kaiser@...>
 

Dear Researchers,

I have just recently been advised of a excellent book on the Jews of Posen.
See below.

"Aus Vergangenheit und Gegenwart der Juden und Jud. Gemeinden in den Posener
Landen" is the title of the book published in 1909 by Dr. A. Heppner and J.
Herzberg.

It has a chapter on each of about 100 Posen Jewish communities. 14 pages on
Ostrowo, 3 pages on Unruhstadt, etc. It's loaded with names and lists. You
might find it in a university or national library."

I have had difficulty locating this book. Is there some one out that has a
copy or access to one.

Please respond privately and I can advise of more details.

Many thanks

LITHUANIA INTERNAL PASSPORT DATABASE- Additional Records Added #lithuania

Howard Margol
 

4,000 records >from the city of Kaunas, and 550 records >from the city of
Panevezys, have been added to the Lithuania Internal Passport Database.
Even though the internal passport was applied for in Kaunas or in
Panevezys, many applicants were born elsewhere in Lithuania or different
parts of Russia and their place of birth is included in the database.

Search the database and you may find ancestors even though you may not
have known where they applied for their internal passport. Many surnames
are spelled with the Lithuanian spelling as well as a translated spelling.
For married females, their maiden name is also given in most instances.

As an example, do a search with the exact spelling, for the following
surnames. ABRAMERAS, BALINIENE, ABROMSON, CUKERMANIENE. You will see
many maiden names included as well as their place of birth which, in
many cases, is not Kaunas or Panevezys.

About 14,000 additional internal passport files for the city of Kaunas,
and another 4,000 files for the city of Panevezys, need to be
translated and added to the database. Thousands and thousands of
internal passport files for other parts of Lithuania will be added to
the database at some time in the future.

To search the database, go to

http://www.jewishgen.org/databases/Lithuania/InternalPassports.htm

After reading the introduction, which contains very interesting
explanations and photographs of documents, scroll down to the bottom
and click on SEARCH THE DATABASE.

Good luck in your research.

Inspection Card #ukraine

An 'Inspection Card' lists pertinent information about a relative >from
Kopaigorod, Russia (Ukraine) admitted to the US August 23, 1923, but she
does not appear in the Ellis Island Database.

Just two questions; what is an Inspection Card? is it possible that the date
explains absence >from the database?

Any suggestions will be appreciated.

S.E. London synagogue #general

Derek & Rosemary Wenzerul <dandr@...>
 

I am trying to find out where I might find photographs of the S.E. London
Synagogue's first building in Lausanne Road in New Cross, Peckham
between 1889-1902. In Peter Renton's book, the Lost Synagogues of London
there is a photo of the Synagogue, but in the text he describes an 'Iron
Hut' (which in those days was a type of Portakabin which many congregations
started off in) and this is what I would like to see. My Great Uncle, Rev.
Nehemiah Goldston was the Minister there in 1889.

Any help will be greatly appreciated.

All the best

Seeking POT submitter Khaim BERG from Israel #general

Lee Nydell <lnydell@...>
 

Trying to locate a Khaim BERG, who lives in Israel and is a Shoah survivor.
On May 27, 1999 he submitted information to Yad Vashem about members of
his family who perished in 1942 in Majdanek. His family name might have been
spelled BARG. Some members of his family (grandfather Gershl -- grandmother
Malke -- father Leizer -- mother Etl and siblings Sheike, Sroil and Marsha) were
born in Vysokoye, Poland (now Belarus). The Shtetl of Vysokoye was in Western
Belarus, near to Brest, Belarus.

Re: Posen/Poznan FHC Microfilmed Jewish Records #general

Jim Bennett <bennett@...>
 

Carolyn Lea and Roger Lustig are referring to a Hebrew pinkas of the Posen
Jewish Community that found its way to Berlin in 1937 where it was
microfilmed by the Nazi RSA. After the war it was at the Zentralstelle
fuer Genealogie in Leipzig, DDR, where in 1983 the Mormon FHS re-microfilmed
it.

I have a hard-copy sent to me by Edward Luft fifteen years ago. It is a
death register of the Jews of Posen [city] for the period of 1825-1853,
containing about 2500 deaths. It is in Hebrew script, quite tedious and
difficult to read because it is a 3rd or 4th generation of copying and
recopying, and because the original pinkas had dark, worn page margins, and
1930's era microfilming wasn't high quality.

Further, many of the names were patronymic, and even where there are family
names, they tend to be in the far left margin where they are too dark to
read.

The second part of the pinkas contains very lengthy lists-- >from 1825 to
1836-- of purchase orders and/or distribution [to the needy?] of "Kimcha
d'Pischa"--flour for baking Pessach matzot to the member of the Posen
community. The same problems are present. Many patronyms, Hebrew initials
in place of family names, nicknames, etc.

It would be possible to database this rare pinkas, but only if a
high-quality copy were to be re-filmed >from the Leipzig genealogy bureau,
perhaps with some image enhancement.
