(UK) National Archives and Findmypast Make the 1939 Register Available November 2 #general

Jan Meisels Allen
 

This is effective starting November 2, 2015 it will not be available before
then.

I do not generally post about databases that are on a commercial site which
are not totally free access, but for this database I am making an exception:
the 1939 civil National Register for England and Wales, capturing 41 million
lives on one day. Searching is "free" but there is a pay per view to
read/purchase the records (see below). At time of launch 28 million records
will be searchable. The Register will be updated weekly.

The UK resident's residence on 29-September 1941 the day, listed might not
be the "usual" residence". The National Register is dubbed 'The Wartime Domesday
Book'. The Register only counted civilians, not those serving in the armed
forces, but does include members of the armed services on leave and civilians
on military bases. Of course not everyone was enumerated-for the various
reasons people are missed in censuses.

This database "plugs" a 30 year gap in census records- and no, the National
Register is not a "true" census (>from the page of instructions >from the
enumerators: "It must first be emphasized that these Instructions and the
documents and forms referred to therein relate to an enumeration for a
National Register, not for a Census."), but the Office of National Statistics
has decided to treat it as a census for privacy reasons regarding not
releasing the records under age 100 unless proved the person is deceased
(see below). UK residents over the age of 100 and living-over 14,400 are
included and searchable.

The 1931 census relating to England and Wales was destroyed by a fire at an
Office of Works store at Hayes, Middlesex, in 1942, and due to World War ll
no census was taken in 1941, making the 1921 census the last census before
1951. Therefore, the 1939 civilian Register breaks that 30 year gap, as the
Register is the only surviving record for people living in England and Wales
during 1921-1951. According to the National Archives, those who are younger
than 100 today will have entries relating to them redacted. That is because
the Census Act of 1920 requires there to be a 100-year gap before any
individual's census details can be included. This applies unless it's proved
that they have died, by researchers cross-referring with births, deaths and
marriages data. Findmypast, working with The National Archives, will have an
ongoing process to identify records which can be opened on proof of death
provided either by matching against robust data sets or supplied by users.
Records will also be opened as people reach the age of 100 years+1 day.

This a goldmine for genealogists! The register contains the names,
addresses, marital statuses, occupations, and more of all civilians living
in England and Wales on one day-29 September 1939 -only 26 days after the UK
entered the War. The Register was used for rationing, identity cards and
following the war for the National Health Service. To read more >from the
National Archives go to: http://www.bbc.com/news/magazine-34570120

Why only the records for England and Wales? The records for Scotland and
Northern Ireland are held by National Records of Scotland and PRO Northern
Ireland respectively. According to Peter Calver of LostCousins, he explains
how to purchase the records for Scotland and to use the Freedom of
Information Act for Irish records see:

opening a household record giving an insight into the world of 1939 including
maps that will demonstrate how local areas have changed, never-before-online

record set is not being offered as part of the usual Findmypast subscription

Civil Registry record of him reporting death of ggm Amalie geb

No further record of him has been found.

Were there Jewish Homes for the Aged in Berlin at that time? Perhaps

Roger Lustig
 

Cali? No idea. On the other hand...

Hennweiler is very close to Bruschied in the Rhineland. Since that's
west of the Rhine, not only the post-1874 universal civil records but
also the French-style civil records back to 1798 should be in the town.
They're probably in the nearby town of Kirn.

Re: Family WOLFF of Gollin, Germany #germany

Roger Lustig
 

Barbara:
The first thing to determine is: which Gollin? There were two places by
that name, one of which still uses it. That one's in Brandenburg, not
terribly far >from Berlin. The other one was at the western end of West
Prussia and is now in Poland.

A visit to the Gedenkbuch Deutschland--the German memorial to German
victims--shows that 4 people >from Gollin/West Prussia and none >from the
other one were murdered.

http://www.bundesarchiv.de/gedenkbuch/directory.html

The names are:

Margarete GETZEL nee OHNSTEIN, who was born in Lissa and lived in Gollin;
Clara KOCH nee WOLFF, born in Gollin, who lived in Berlin;
Martha MOSES nee WOLFF, born in Gollin, who lived in Woldenburg/Neumark
(also in Poland today) and Berlin;
Emil WOLFF, who lived in Gollin and was born there. He was deported >from
Berlin, so he was probably relocated there during the early part of the
war. He was born on 12 Feb 1866.

The story of being the only Jews in town rings true. The place was
tiny--maybe 250 people then, 110 now. (It's called Golin in Polish.)
According to Gerhard Salinger's book on West Prussian communities, the
redrawing of borders after WW I (which left Gollin and the nearby town
of Schloppe German) also led to 6 Jews in the villages of Selchow,
Gollin and Eichfeld being assigned to the synagogue in Schloppe. That's
the only reference to Jews in Gollin that I've found aside >from the
Gedenkbuch your posting.

Golin is under 6 km >from Czlopa (modern-day Schloppe). So it's very
likely that its vital records were kept at Schloppe. The primary
registers do not seem to have survived, but the secondary ones are in
the Standesamt 1a in Berlin. They cover the period >from 1874 to 1943.
The Standesamt 1a transferred much of its archive to the Berlin State
Archive about 3 years ago.

German law restricts access to vital records until 30 years after a
death, 80 years after a marriage and 110 years after a birth. If you can
demonstrate that you're descended >from someone, you can of course obtain
their vital records. At this point, births after 1899 are not yet in the
State Archive, or at least, that may be what their web site is telling
us. http://www.landesarchiv-berlin.de/lab-neu/03_10.htm#standesamt

Re: Can you help name a baby? (Cedar Park Cemetery, Paramus NJ, lookup request) #general

Jo Volk <joannecadis@...>
 

Before you ask for assistance you might try calling the cemetery direct.
I have been lucky enough to get a quick response.
Sometimes they will email you with no charge and other times there will be a
nominal charge maybe $10.00

My cousin, who is "due" very soon, might name the baby for her great-aunt Hilde,
but she doesn't know Hilde's Hebrew name. Unfortunately, I don't have it in my
records. I do know that Hilde -- born 1912 in Huenfeld, Germany -- was
originally Brunhilde.

We're hoping that a Hebrew name is on Hilde's gravestone at Cedar Park Cemetery
in Paramus, NJ. I'd go there myself but can't for two weeks, and I'm afraid the
baby won't wait! Is there anyone out there who lives near Cedar Park and would
be willing to take a look? I can provide details, including the exact location
of the grave.

WEISSBERGER-SHLEZINGER plus info on Prose and Putzing camp #general

David Zoldan
 

Hello,

My grandmother was Kreindel or Klara ZOLDAN nee WEISSBERGER. She was
born and grew up in Munkatch but the family may have moved >from greater
Hungary before she was born?? not sure.

Kreindel (Klara) was the daughter of Efraim Zalman (Solomon) WEISSBERGER
and Devorah (Vera) SHLEZINGER. Her siblings were Chaim Sender, Avraham
(Bumi), Leah, Malka, Sara Rivka, Nachman. Avraham Bumi survived the war.

Efraim Zalmans was one of at least four children including Hirsh Melech
and Avraham born to their mother Sheindel WEISSBERGER.

Devorah was the daughter of Yitzchak Eizik and Sima SHLEZINGER. Devorahs
known siblings are Zelig (Zoli), Shlomo, David, Yaakov, Yehuda. Yehuda
SHLEZINGER has a son Zoli (US) and a daughter Sima (Russia).

Recently I found some documents which lists some information about the
camps my grandmother was in.

>from May, 1944 she entered Auschwitz for about 6 weeks.
>from July 1944 she entered Prose camp until the Russian invasion.
>from Russian invasion till end of April 1945 she was in Putzing camp.

My questions are:

1) Can anyone help with the above WEISSBERGER or SHLEZINGER family.
2) I googled the camps which I listed, i.e. Prose Camp and Putzing Camp
but found nothing. I am sure the spelling is off, this must be the way
it was heard by the one who filled out the form I referenced. What could
the names of these camps be and what info do we have about these camps.
Also, what could I research about Auschwitz for the months she was there
May and June 1944.
3) Although grandmas mother and most siblings seem to have been killed
immediately at Auschwitz, it seems that her father Efraim Zalman
(Solomon) WEISSBERGER wasn't killed right away and may have lived into
1945. What is available to me to research what happened to him and his
daughter, my grandmother.

I would be grateful for any help, leads, comments.

SHLEZINGER has a son Zoli (US) and a daughter Sima (Russia).

Recently I found some documents which lists some information about the
camps my grandmother was in.

>from May, 1944 she entered Auschwitz for about 6 weeks.
>from July 1944 she entered Prose camp until the Russian invasion.
>from Russian invasion till end of April 1945 she was in Putzing camp.

My questions are:

1) Can anyone help with the above WEISSBERGER or SHLEZINGER family.
2) I googled the camps which I listed, i.e. Prose Camp and Putzing Camp
but found nothing. I am sure the spelling is off, this must be the way
it was heard by the one who filled out the form I referenced. What could
the names of these camps be and what info do we have about these camps.
Also, what could I research about Auschwitz for the months she was there
May and June 1944.
3) Although grandmas mother and most siblings seem to have been killed
immediately at Auschwitz, it seems that her father Efraim Zalman
(Solomon) WEISSBERGER wasn't killed right away and may have lived into
1945. What is available to me to research what happened to him and his
daughter, my grandmother.

I would be grateful for any help, leads, comments.

Hello

Yesterday I posted a marriage contract in ViewMate of a marriage in 1905 in
Konin, Poland, in Russian language and got some help.

This is the link to the viewmate image
http://www.jewishgen.org/ViewMate/responselist.asp?key=42852.

The groom is supposed to be >from "Unkev? in Turskeyl area", Poland.
Does anyone know what could this be?

I can't find any village that looks like this. Any help greatly appreciated.

Joseph Levine aka Joe Evans #yiddish

My great uncle, Joseph LEVINE, was an actor: vaudeville, comedy, song & dance.
I have found newspaper clippings >from his time in vaudeville, aspart of
the 2-man act FOX & EVANS, (about 1908-1926?), on Fulton Postcards. There was
also a clipping indicating that the two men purchased a rollerskating rink in
Richfield Springs, NY in November, 1932. They also appeared on stage again
in May, 1932 at the Carleton Theatre in NY, according to the Long Island
Sunday Press.

His WWI Draft registration was in Chicago, although his residence was
with his sister, Esther Taufield, in the Bronx (1216 Hoe Av).The card
showed that he was a performer working for Western Vaudeville.
He was born in May 1885.

I have not been able to find any records for Joe beyond November, 1932.
Does anyone have any other ideas?

Thank you,
Marilyn Robinson

Re: Would Jews be identified as soldiers on marriage record? #general

My ggm's brother Meir BEREGOVSKY was one of the founders of the Finnish
Jewish community. His name appears on a list of Jews residing in Viipuri
(Vyborg). All those who were retired soldiers [most, but not all residents]
are ID'd as such, along with wife and children. He was a sergeant.

Military status was important, since an honorable discharge meant many
advantages for the whole family, including the right to retain sidearm and
live outside the Pale.

I'll repeat for the group what I sent privately to Pauline Rosenberg, >from
my own experience with military designations on marriage records in the All
Lithuania Database.

When my great-uncle married in Kovno Gubernia in 1889, the comment in the
record was "husband is a retired squaddy". Squaddy is an old British term
meaning enlisted man, as in a member of a squad. So, at least in the Kovno city
records of the late 1800s, military service was sometimes noted. His future
father-in-law is also designated on his children's records as a "retired
private soldier >from village Aleksotas", which was a suburb of Kovno city.
