Re: Jewish-German in Ukraine #general

Alan,

The question of how the Jews of Eastern Europe got German names and when is
very complicated and controversial. If you would write to me privately, I will
be glad to respond with some of the more common theories and which I think are
correct.

If the group as a whole wants me to expound on the subject, I will be glad to
do so.

Bruce Reisch <bir1@...>
 

Dear Friends:

The ShtetLinks web site for Radauti, Romania, has been updated with a
new trip report and with a section of a book about Jewish life in
Radauti in the 1920s and 30s.

First time visitors to the site should start here:

http://www.shtetlinks.jewishgen.org/radauti/radautz.html

Peter Linder just returned >from a trip to Radauti. His report has
been posted so others can learn about his experience in researching
and planning a trip back to his mother's roots in Radauti. The
direct link to his trip report, "Making the Journey to Radautz,
Romania, Searching for Pessie SCHIMMEL" is here:

http://www.shtetlinks.jewishgen.org/radauti/lindertrip05.htm


Rita STENZLER Rogers, retired physician of California, published an
autobiographical book in 1988. Written jointly with John Mack, "The
Alchemy of Survival, One Woman's Journey," begins with her comments
on growing up in Radauti in the 1920s and 30s. We are grateful to
Dr. Rogers for permission to post excerpts >from her book on the
Radauti ShtetLinks web site. The direct link to the first
installment appears here:

Re: NYC police records #general

Ira Leviton
 

Dear Group,

Gary Gershfeld asked, "I was wondering whether the NYC Police
Department would have old records and/or archives for our view in cases
such as a family member having a tragic death,where the cause of death was
Undetermined on the death certificate..."

These records do exist, somewhere, and their location depends on the
year. But it first depends whether a police report was made (for example,
due to an accident) or a crime was committed in connection with the death,
which is not clear >from the posting. All police activity is entered
chronologically in "blotter books" which are kept at the individual
precincts for many years afterwards, sometimes in an inaccessible place
because the information are not needed years after the incident. I don't
know the policy on public access to blotters that are still in precinct
houses.

The Lloyd George Sealy Library at the John Jay College of Criminal
Justice in Manhattan (899 10th Avenue, at 59th Street; tel 212-237-8246 or
212-541-0965) has most of the N.Y.C. Police Department blotter books from
1916 to 1935, but quite a few are missing. To look up the information,
you have to know first the precinct and then the approximate date.

My uncle, a retired NYC police officer, told me that years ago when his
precinct was moved to a new building, they found stuff in the basement
that looked like it came >from the time of the Civil War. (Maybe he meant
it looked like the stuff had been through the war). Much of the material
was simply discarded, and some officers took material home as souvenirs
and curiousities because they no longer had value in law enforcement.
Some blotter books were probably just misplaced over the years.

If there were any legal proceedings arising >from a potential crime or
accident, then court records are kept forever, although it helps to have a
case number. (The best place to start is the Supreme Court of the county
in which the incident occurred. Obviously, the information in court files
focuses on the perpetrator(s), but there should be information regarding
the victim as well. Newspaper articles may have also mentioned the
incident, whether criminal or not.
