Re: INTRO - Seeking MICHAELIS #germany

m leonards <m_leonards@...>
 

Lorraine Garcia has just discovered that her MICHAELIS ancestors [may have been]
Jewish, and that her great-grandfather, born 1866, was murdered in the Holocaust.

If you go to the Yad Vashem Central Database of Holocaust Victims'
Names(http://www.yadvashem.org/wps/portal/IY_HON_Welcome) you will find
three listings >from compilations for a Max MICHAELIS, born in 1865. They
are all almost certainly the same man. Compiling all the information, it
appears that _Dr._ Max MICHAELIS was born in Meseritz, Germany; lived in
Berlin; and was transported first to Theresienstadt (a holding camp in
Czechoslovakia); and >from there to Treblinka. He died in Minsk, Belarus.

Meseritz, in the German province of Posen, is today the town of Miedzyrzecz,
in the province of Zielona Gora, Poland. The Mormon LDS Family History
Library has the Jewish records for this town on five microfilms covering the
years 1817-1875. So, Ms. Garcia should be able to trace her family further.
However, these are the records where the right and left pages were filmed
separately. Perhaps someone who has worked with this situation can give Ms.
Garcia some advice.

Since she lives in Baltimore, Ms. Garcia should also go the National
Archives in Washington to find the passenger manifest for her mother's
arrival into the United States. This should include her grandfather's place
of birth, and other useful information.

And, of course, she should do all the standard family history things:
interview relatives, go through family papers and photographs, obtain vital
records (like her grandfather's death certificate), etc. Good luck!

Ukraine SIG News Alert #ukraine

Deborah Glassman <historian2020@...>
 

Dear Genners,

The Ukraine SIG is pleased to announce a new service. Inside the Digest
every Wednesday, you will find a Ukraine SIG News alert. We will let you
know about our projects, our volunteers, our website additions, and new ways
you can participate in expanding our knowledge of Jewish life in the
Ukraine. Help us create new databases, collect photographs, and capture
images of original records. We are interested in all towns currently in the
Ukraine that had previously been part of the Russian Empire.

Here are two different database projects you can participate in right now.
We will post the ongoing databases on our website homepage you can find at
http://www.jewishgen.org/Ukraine/index.htm

Database Project 1 - Tell us the name of a place in the Ukraine with its old
name, the modern name if you know it and the name of at least one Jewish
family who lived there and when they did. Add more families if you know
them. Let us know whether you would like to be informed about research done
on the Jewish community there.

Database Project 2 - Help us get a better look at the lives of our
ancestors. We are doing an occupational survey of Jews in the Ukraine at
twenty year intervals. We will work backwards >from 1910, 1890, 1870, 1850,
etc. If you know where your ancestor lived in any of those time periods and
what his job was, make a listing with these headings: Ancestor/His or Her
Dates/Occupation/Ukrainian Residences/ Years of residence/Training. So the
entry I would create for my great-grandfather would be:

Joseph SOLOMON/ 1864-1936/ blacksmith/ Chudnov, Khmelnik, Krasnopolye/
1864-1904/ Apprenticeship in Khmelnik. There is no such thing as too many
entries. Make a table and fill it in for all of your ancestors whose
occupation you know.

We will also post queries for specific places in the Ukraine. That increases
everybody's chances of finding records related to those towns and your
ability to network with people who have responded to the posting. Pictures
taken there; title pages of books printed in those towns photos of
artifacts >from the Jewish communities of those places; and all kinds of
other material is desirable.

Please send information on any Ukraine community but this first posting
hopes to especially find: photographs; artifacts of all kinds; and
researchers interested in these communities; >from the following ten Jewish
communities in the Ukraine:

Community Search 1 - Yablonets; Korets; Novograd-Volhynsky; Ostropol;
Chernikov; Zhitomir; Berdichev; Chudnov; Staro-Konstantinov; Shepetovka;

Partner with us in creating these databases; post your pictures or records
you've found in your research; learn about our volunteer projects; and share
your knowledge and enthusiasm with the SIG.

Re: Seeking MARCUS Cologne #germany

Gaby,
you should be able to receive some information >from the Personenstandsarchiv
Brühl, where the records for Koeln are kept. E-mail: psa@llav.nrw.de. It is
true, that they state in their information, that some information is only
available to direct family descendants, but, if I am not mistaken, death and
marriage records are in the public domain after 50 years. Only births
records are not available to the public for 100 years.
The records of the courts would be kept in the Hauptstaatsarchiv in
Duesseldorf, if I am not mistaken, and they should be available to you. Many
web-pages in Germany are only available in German,

- My mother Eveline Ursula MICHAELIS was born in Charlottenberg,
Germany, (I believe 104 Wilmersdorfer Str.) in 1925. She came to the US
in 1926 with her parents.......
I agree with Roger Lustig that the vast majority of namebearers MICHAELIS in
Germany were and are German Christians; in the 1998 German phone directory
you can find more than 5,100 entries for MICHAELIS. Some 70 Jewish families
MICHAELIS were living in the German territories before the 1850's.

A Max Paul MICHAELIS is not listed as victim of the Nazis in the Berlin
Memorbook - at least not with the double given name "Max Paul" and the birth
year 1866. One Dr. Max MICHAELIS, born 23 Oct 1865 in Meseritz, was living
in Berlin-Charlottenburg on Kantstr. 120-121 and was deported by the Nazis
on 30 Jul 1942 to Theresienstadt. >from Theresienstadt he was brought to KZ
Treblinka on 26 Sep 1942.

One of the 36 Max MICHAELIS, found in Berlin in 1925, was a railroad
official, living in Charlottenburg on Wilmersdorfer Str. 109.110. (cf.

You can find out whether your gr-grandfather was Jewish by checking the 1939
German minority census which was microfilmed by the Latter Day Saints
(Mormon Church) and can be viewed at every Family History Center; microfilm
# 1742254 covers the names Meyerfeld, E. - Mitzmacher, M. in Berlin.

Good luck with your research. Kind regards & Shalom,

Greetings,
A fellow researcher has told me about a web site that might be of interest to
Czestochowa researchers. Though it is mostly all in Polish, it gives you the
opportunity to look for people who might have graduated >from Sienkiewicz's High
School in Czestochowa >from 1885 to the present. Just left-click on the period of
time that you are interested in at the top of the column "Absolwenci" on the far
right of the page. Then left-click on the the word [Przegladaj] that lies next to
the year you are interested in. Also some biographical information of each
individual is given (click on the words [Czytaj wiecej].)
