listing of Dachau inmates #germany

Frank, Steven <Steven.Frank@...>
 

My father, Siegfried FRANK, also was incarcerated in Dachau after
Kristalnacht. I visited Dachau several years ago and went to the offices
there to inquire about their records. They were helpful and tried to find
my father's records but were unsuccessful and recommended the Red Cross
records.

At the time, they told me that their records are sparce on the
post-Kristalnacht internees since there were so many. The records are
better on those unfortunate persons who went there later on. It sounds
like the inquirer's father was in Dachau after Kristalnacht and left
Germany very shortly after his release.

Berlin Marriage Requirements in 1910 #germany

Henry Sinai <hmsinai@...>
 

My maternal grandparents were married in Leszniow in 1910.

Would anyone have any idea why the couple who had been living in Berlin
almost all their lives (since young children) would get married in
Leszniow?

Was there a requirement to get married in the country of one's birth ? The
bride was born in Rzeszow and the groom in Brody.

Hohenlohekreis Cemetery Book #germany

Brian Stern <brians@...>
 

Hi All,

Please contact me if you own or have access to the recently published book:

"Juedische Friedhoefe im Hohenlohekreis," which describes the Jewish
cemeteries in Berlichingen, Hohebach, Krautheim, Laibach,and Oeringin.

I am thinking about purchasing the book but would like to know if my STERN
relatives >from Olnhausen are listed in the Berlichingen section.

There should be twenty or more STERNs >from Olnhausen buried in
Berlichingen. Thanks

Location of Braunschweig [using the GeoServ town finder service] #germany

hanna <hannakg@...>
 

I've just run across the name of what appears to be an ancestor in the
Braunschweig Jewishgen memor book.

Checking Stetlseeker I find the coordinates of Braunschweig and that it
is over 200 miles >from Berwangen where the family originated, or
Heilbronn, where my branch lived >from the late 19C.

Then I tried find among my book marks the marvelous site which provides
Kreis, Land, etc. for any town you chose to put in. Somehow I don't
have it. Then I spend an hour trying to concoct an inquiry which will
generate it >from the Gersig archives without coming remotely near, and
in fact without being able to understand the relationship between the
inquiry and the result. [MOD NOTE- When you search our archives for
a word or words, a list of all postings containing those words will appear.
In each posting, the searched for words will be highlighted the first
time they appear in the message. On my system they appear in red. MOD]

I hate to ask for this site again because the moderators have gotten a
little testy the last 3 times someone did because it has been discussed so
often...but if others have as much trouble with the archives as I do, the
same questions will be repeated.

I would be grateful for the site URL and also for some further
instruction in how to design archive inquiries.

MODERATOR NOTE: To search the GerSig or other SIG Forum archives go to:
<http://www.jewishgen.org/wconnect/wc.isa?jg~jgsys~sigspop>
You can select German Jewish SIG >from the list of SIGs or search
all sig archives by not selecting a specific one.

Enter the word or words you are searching for in the "search for" box
using the syntax instructions which appear above the box.

In this case, since I knew that I had answered this same question from
Hanna Grossman recently in another Moderator Note, I searched for
the following: Hanna and Grossman
The search results gave me all posts to GerSig >from Hanna Grossman.
The message posted to GerSig on June 6, 2002, contained the information
that I have repeated below.

Searching the archives requires some thought and perhaps some experiments.
Family and town names may have been misspelled in postings or written
with accented characters which are not recognized by the search engine.

A search for a very common word will produce too many results to be
useful. Narrow your searches by using the syntax guidelines.

The instructions for using the GeoServ town search server to get
details on German towns follow.

As I did the last time I posted this information, I ask that you and
other GerSig members copy this information and save it in a text file
which you can refer to whenever you need this information. -----

The short answer is: Send an email with the correctly
spelled name of the town in the message body to:

geo@genealogy.net

A better answer would be to use our GerSig Website, especially the
page listing "Resources": <http://www.jewishgen.org/GerSIG/resources.htm>

On this page at our website are links to many valuable resources for
German Jewish Genealogy including:

"Genealogy.net: Links to information sources regarding German genealogy."
<http://www.genealogienetz.de/genealogy.html>

This site can be read in either English or German.

On the homepage look for "Place Lookups" and click on "GeoServ"
(Ortssuche - GeoServ).

I urge GerSig members who have not already done so to bookmark both
the web pages cited above. Between them you can find solutions to most
basic research questions. MOD1

Re: Pollak from Budapest and identification of memorial on Viewmate VM1773 #hungary

Tom Beer <beer_tom@...>
 

I have Pollak relatives in Budapest. They do not seem to be related to
yours. However, what is relevant is that the name
Pollak means >from Poland. One of my relatives "Hungarianised" it to
Lengyel, which means "Polish" in Hungarian.

Sandor Pollak may well have become Sandor Lengyel.

Could this be a pronounciation issue? Are there significant regional

Or could it be related to the original country folks emigrated from?
