Family of Fanny FABER from Karlsruhe #germany

GIDON LEV
 

Dear Gersig,

I am looking for the family of Fanny FABER (1852-1932) who married Max
LOEW in 1875. They lived in Karlsruhe and had nine children about which
I have full information.

According to their wedding document I know that her father's name was
Jakob FABER and her mother's maiden name Zitona FUERST.
Furthermore I know that the FABER family was living in Karlsruhe for
many years (maybe generations).

Besides of these facts I don't know nothing about the family. I would
mostly appreciate if anybody could tell me in which way I could get some more
records and which data sources I could use.

Gidon Lev, Israel gidonl@...

Re: Germany, Hesse, Civil Registration, 1874-1927 - SITE CITE #germany

Judith:
No question but that Familysearch.org is an essential resource. But
somehow, when it comes to Hessen--or, more particularly the Marburg
Archive and its Neustadt branch--they do the darndest things.

They've had the Standesamt records you reference "available" for several
years now. But most of us can't use them >from home. Meanwhile, the
archive itself has put the same stuff up and added much more.

The other Marburg problem is with the Hessen-Nassau Miscellaneous Church
Records 1801-1875. This is a masterpiece of miscataloging that has
undoubtedly kept many researchers >from finding useful information. The
Jewish records in this set are numerous, and perhaps half of them are
either misdescribed, listed as "civil" or as some other denomination.
See my piece, "Buried Treasure," in the Spring 2014 _Avotaynu_.

In any event, thanks for mentioning this, and for reminding all of us to
check back often to see what else Familysearch has put up lately.

Roger Lustig asks "Have you actually used this resource?" I only have one
surname (HASENLAUF)that corresponds to this area (Frankfurt am Main), and I
searched it and no hits were found, which didn't surprise me, as the person
may have been adopted into the HASENLAUF family. I have used
Familysearch.org extensively over the years and believe it to be a vital
genealogy site, as well as the Mormon microfilms. Also, I wish to clarify
that I continually check both Ancestry.com and Familysearch.org to see which
databases they have added that could be of interest not only to myself, but
to all Jewish researchers, and if I find something I consider of general
interest I post it. Same story if I run across something while surfing the
net. I have received many "thank yous" over time for doing this.....!

The 2nd copies of all of Baden's vital records >from ca. 1810 through
Jan. 1870 are on line at

https://www2.landesarchiv-bw.de/ofs21/olf/struktur.php?bestand=12390
(Karlsruhe archive--northern Baden)

https://www2.landesarchiv-bw.de/ofs21/olf/struktur.php?bestand=10028
(Freiburg--the south)

Karlsruhe is large enough that Jewish vital records are bound separately
from those of other denominations.
---------------------------

According to Lars Menk's _Dictionary of German-Jewish Surnames_, FABER
first appears in Karlsruhe in 1837. It may be useful to look for a
marriage record >from around then. Menk also lists other towns in Baden
and elsewhere where Jews used the surname before then.

Judith:

As has been the case for quite a while, one may browse the records only
if one is a member of LDS or a "supporting organization", or one is
using the site at a Family History Center.

Moreover, the index is either broken or not accessible either. No hits
for the surname KATZENSTEIN????? (Update: they seem to have indexed the
city of Darmstadt and perhaps one or two other places.)

What's really funny is that all these records and more are accessible
via

http://www.lagis-hessen.de/en/subjects/index/sn/pstr

Enter a town name to see which volumes they have available.
They include the ones accessible via LDS and more.
Example: for Schotten (Vogelsbergkreis)
Familysearch has one birth register (10 years) plus 4 death registers
(50 years). Lagis has 6 more registers: 25 years more deaths (up to
1950) plus 50 years of marriages.

As to the indexes, each year of records typically has an index at
beginning or end.

Hi,

One of my branches came >from Stakliskes in Lithuania. I was recently in
correspondence with a descendant >from that town and we tried to match wives of his
ancestors for whom he does not have a surname.

Unfortunately we were not able to make any matches. However, it occurred to me
that other Genners >from Stakliskes who have wives without a surname, would like to
contact me and maybe we can discover a connection with my REICHZELIGMAN women.
