Finding my German family in Zurich #germany

Ellen Barnett Cleary
 

I recently learned that Else SONDHLEM, born 23 November 1915 in Dresden
left Amsterdam for Zurich, Switzerland on 26 November 1936. I know that
she lived on Gastenstrasse, possibly number 34 in Zurich.

Do any of you have experience researching the Zurich records?
I would very much like to know where to write for information on
her and welcome any advice you might offer.

Reichsvereinigung der Juden: Letter G - SITE CITE #germany

Lande
 

I have completed indexing all Reichsvereinigung (RJD) registration family
names beginning with the letter G. This material as well as names beginning
with the letters A-F and L (in total about 10,000 names) are available on
the Steve Morse website, Holocaust material, under the heading Jewishroof.
Further letters will be posted when (and if) I manage to complete them.

A brief note of explanation. Beginning in 1939 and continuing through
1941/42 all resident Jews, regardless of nationality or place of birth were
required to register with the RJD, which was supervised by the Gestapo.
While many sought to avoid registering, about 100,000 cards/names appear in
this collection. The information on each card varies widely, >from as little
as name, date and place of birth and residence to profession, family
members, and fate, e.g. emigration destination, report of death within
Germany or deportation. Somewhat surprisingly, less than one quarter of the
registrants were deported, with far more dying in their cities of residence.
Those interested in a more complete description of the collection and its
current use may contact me at pdlande@starpower.net.

In the past it has been possible to provide copies of cards in response to
individual requests. At present what, I hope, are only technical problems
prevent this. For now, until full access to the cards becomes available, in
response to individual requests at plande@ushmm.org, I will attempt to
supplement the information on the posted website.

ViewMate translation request - German #germany

Peggy Teich
 

Dear GerSiggers,

I would be grateful for a translation of the birth record posted on
ViewMate at the following address:

http://www.jewishgen.org/viewmate/viewmateview.asp?key=VM53385.

Please respond via the form provided in the ViewMate application.

The columns with paternal and maternal information are of particular
interest to me (I think the maternal column will provide names of
mother's parents - including her mother's maiden name). I would be
grateful if someone would translate all columns. Thank you very much!

Re: Finding my German family in the Netherlands - [Thanks and findings] #germany

Ellen Barnett Cleary
 

Thank you so much to everyone who helped me with my query. Thanks to
you I have found out about my family in the Netherlands. I am so amazed
at how much I have learned.

I wanted to share the resources you shared with me that helped answer
this question. There are many resources that sadly list the names of
Holocaust victims. I am not going to mention those sites unless they
gave me additional information about Emma's life.

Two important things I learned, that might be helpful to other researchers.
1. search under both Emma's maiden name and under her married surname.
2. her daughter's husband's name was SONDHELM, rather than Sondheim...so
it pays to be alert to variations.

These were the sites that helped us complete the picture:

https://archief.amsterdam/indexen/index.nl.html
*under Archiefkaarten 1939-1994
*under Gezinskaarten 1833-1939

Told me the addresses Emma was living in Amsterdam and when and where
her husband died.

Told me this about Emma's daughter's family:
*the address she lived in Amsterdam
*birth dates and places of her husband and her daughter
*when she left Amsterdam for the US with her husband (although this info
proved incorrect when I found the passenger list -- she left earlier on
a different ship)
*that her daughter emigrated to Zurich and the date she emigrated

http://wp.ge-mittelkreis.de/_startseite/_st_141215/gored1412_muehlenstr51.html

Told me
*where Emma married
*when and where her husband died
*the name of the company her husband worked for
*where and with whom Emma lived after her husband died

Many many thanks to all of you!

My original post:

I am researching Hilda (WERTHEIMER) SONDHEIM, who moved with her
husband, William, to the Netherlands when the issues of WWII began. I do
not know where in the Netherlands they lived, but I think it was close
to Goch, Germany because her mother moved to Goch so she could visit her
daughter in the Netherlands, perhaps Rotterdam, but I am not at all
certain of that. Her mother sadly was captured by the Germans and died
in Auschwitz.

HIlda and William had a daughter named Elsie SONDHEIM. I do not know if
she too was in the Netherlands but I would like to find out.

Do any of you have experience researching the records of the
Netherlands? I would very much like to know where to write for
information on these people and welcome any advice you might offer.

I know these are slim bits of information to work from, but they are all
I have. I would like to at least see what I might be able to learn.

Re: Researching a German Family in the Netherlands #germany

WALTER ELIAS
 

I have been able to trace members of my German family in the Netherlands
using some of these excellent Dutch websites and help >from Dutch researchers.
Now I am interested in some hows and whys.

My GG Aunt Minna SCHOENFELD was born in Wachenbuchen, Germany, 21 July, 1854.
She was married to Julius MUELLER, born 3 Feb 1846 in Loga,Leer,
Niedersachsen, Germany. They had 3 children, Frieda, Gustav and Johanna
all born in the 1880's in Nijmegen, The Netherlands. I am interested in
the circumstances of the family's move to The Netherlands. I am
hypothesizing that it was mostly economic necessity.

Johanna MUELLER married Karl HAUSER b. 16 June 1888 in Rohrbach, Germany.
I do not know where they married. They had one child, Irene HAUSER who
was born in Mannheim, Germany, 24 Dec 1920. Irene became a war bride,
marrying Major John EBERT of Hancock, Iowa in 1946 and moving to Iowa.


My question now is how do I trace the family's movements >from the 1880s
until the birth of Irene in 1920. Why the back and forth migration? And
further, how did Irene and her parents survive the Holocaust living
during the war in Germany?

These questions probably require a larger project but I am now very curious
about the stories behind the vital records I have found of my German family
in The Netherlands.

Updated 1852 Cadastral Map of Dobromil in the Gesher Galicia Map Room #ukraine

jay.osborn@...
 

Now updated on the Gesher Galicia Map Room: A complete full-color
lithographed 1852 cadastral map of Dobromil (Dobromyl), today in
far-western Ukraine:
http://maps.geshergalicia.org/cadastral/dobromil-dobromyl-1852-2/

Dobromil is a small town which had a significant Jewish presence, and
it was more "urban" than many of the towns surveyed in Galicia by the
Austrian Empire. Residences and businesses are concentrated around an
orderly square composed entirely of masonry buildings, unusual for the
period and the town's size.

We had previously posted an intermediate-stage map of the town from
the same survey, but this final-stage cadastral map is both more
valuable for research and more beautiful. We thank Alexander Nazar of
the Lviv Volunteer Center:
https://lvc.lviv.ua/index.php/en/
for alerting us to the availability of this map across the border, in
Poland. The LVC is a non-profit organization conducting social and
heritage work in and around Lviv; they have an active Jewish heritage
project in Dobromil.

We have completed indexing and sent to JOWBR information on *two* more
cemeteries in Bessarabia/Moldova:

- Lipcani Jewish Cemetery. 1130 graves were indexed, and with 1121
photos sent to JOWBR. Also 285 images of Unknown graves you can see at
Bessarabia SIG website. See maps, many photos at the cemetery report.
The cemetery is not yet completed, and about 700 records will be send
to JOWBR by the end of February. I know that many of our members
donated money in order to get the Lipkani list. If you want, I can
send you list now and later in a month the remain part or send you the
whole list at the end of February. I also asking people who donated
($100+)and are waiting for these records, please *send* me an email,
