Re: Addresses of German Archives etc (Wiesbaden) #germany

Ernest and Doris Stiefel <erstiefel@...>
 

I recommed the following book, in German, which lists all archives in
Germany,Austria and Switzerland and the individuals who work there.

ARCHIVE in der Bundesrepublik Deutschland, Oesterreich und
der Schweiz
Herausgegeben vom Verein Deutscher Archive Ardrey-Verlag, Muenster

I have the 15th edition, 1995, which does not lists e-mail or fax
addresses. I have ordered the 17th edition which will supposedly includes
e-mail addresses. It will be available in November 2002.

Since the book lists addresses and names I believe a knowledge of German
is not necessary.

MODERATOR NOTE: We receive requests for contact information for various
archives in Germany very often. I will continue to post these requests
but it would be best for GerSig members to use our website to obtain
such information. In this case the route would be as follows:

The GerSig Website "Resources" Page:

<http://www.jewishgen.org/GerSIG/resources.htm>
Contains is a link to "Archives in Germany"

<http://www.uni-marburg.de/archivschule/fv61.html>

At this page click on "Staatsarchive"

At the page you will now see, scroll down to "Hessen" the German Land
(state) in which Wiesbaden, Frankfurt and Mainz are located.
Under Hessen you will see a list of "Staatsarchive in Hessen"
including "Hauptstaatsarchiv Wiesbaden". A click on this will take
you to that archive's home page:

Tombstone Photos at Mt. Moriah Cemetery, Fairview, NJ? #general

Ricki L. Zunk <rickiz@...>
 

I've tried to get information on family burials at Mt. Moriah over the past
several months. They are not responsive. Unfortunately, I live in South
Florida and cannot get there to take photos myself.

If anyone is planning on going to Mt. Moriah Cemeter in Fairview, NJ, for
their own reasons, and if you're willing and able to take a few photos of
tombstones, PLEASE contact me privately at rickiz@mindspring.com

Hope to hear >from someone soon.

NYC Birth Certs #general

Herbert Lazerow
 

In response to the comments on the early 20th century NYC
Birth Certs that ask Number of Previous Children and How Many
Now Living (in all), do not place too much weight on the accuracy
of the answers provided. The juxtaposition of the two questions
seems to confuse people, and I have seen children appear and
disappear in the same family's birth certs when there has been
no deaths. Treat it as an arrow toward further inquiry, not as a
death cert.

Probably it was really the unfortunately famous town of Kishinev, in
Moldova (or in German, "Chisinau."

I say "unfortunately famous" because in 1903 a terrible pogrom occurred
there which received exceptional attention >from the press in other
countries, much to the embarassment of the Tsarist regime-not that much was
done by the regime to curb the antisemitic passions that had flared. Chaim
Bialik wrote well known poem about the pogrom, which one can read on the
Internet as "In the City of Slaughter." It was learning of this particular
pogrom that impelled Theodore Herzl to try mightily to find an asylum for
persecuted Russian Jews.

Kishinev was annexed to Russia in 1812. It was the center of a rich
agricultural region, and its development was enhanced when a railroad was
built during the 1870's. Until WWII about 40% of the population was Jewish.

The town's present rabbi is Zalman Abelsky.

ZORBAS and Jews of Greece/Crete #general

Ronald S.Lauder Foundation <laudergen@...>
 

Dear Friends:

We are trying to assist a Polish citizen find out more
about his late father whom he never knew, a man
surnamed ZORBAS. The rumors are that his father was a
Greek Jew who fled to Poland for political reasons in
the late 1940s. We are trying to determine if he was,
in fact, Jewish. Where was he from? Who was his
family?

We are aware of a place in Crete called Zorbas, but it
is the surname that interests us.

If anyone on this list:

1) is familiar with this surname; or
2) can direct us to a Greek Jewry specialist or
institution; or
3) knows of good sources of information about the
Greek Communist Party in the 1940s [we're serious!],

Please let us know privately.

Many thanks and best wishes in the coming year 5763!

1901 Census - search issues & yeshivas #unitedkingdom

Barry Young <b_i_young@...>
 

I posted a query regarding searching the 1901 census database, received some
replies - thanks to those who helped.

I was looking for my Chaikin family, could not find them. I have now found
them by searching for siblings. They were recorded as Ikind! My paternal
grandmother signed her marriage certificate as Chaikind, so maybe it's not
so strange.

The search data shows my maternal grandmother as born in Russia, the census
page stated London. I was searching for London born. Incidentally, I have
not found her birth at the FRC.

A question..

My paternal grandfather Lewis YANOFSKY is not listed with his family, I
cannot find him anywhere in the census. I wonder if he could have been in a
yeshiva in London, he was around 20 at the time. Any ideas of yeshiva names
so I can do an Institutional search?
