An article about researching locations in the Russian Empire or Soviet Union up to 1962 #general

e l
 

Using Max Vasmers Russisches geographisches Namenbuch to Find Locations in the
Russian Empire and the Soviet Union,Gen Dobry!, Volume XVI, No. 1, 31 January 2015,
pp. 2-6.
http://www.polishroots.org/LinkClick.aspx?fileticket=MFnQlcBhaic=&tabid=60&mid=377

What that article does not say is that a researcher could use the Slavic Reference
Service to request the research if he does not have access to the necessary volume
(s) of the Russisches geographisches Namenbuch. See my article,
Slavic Reference Service Provides Copies of Articles, Avotaynu: The International
Review of Jewish Genealogy, Teaneck, New Jersey, Volume XXI, No. 1, Spring 2005,
p. 63. The University of Illinois has a complete set of the Namenbuch, which even
the Library of Congress does not currently have.

The Gen Dobry! article with a reference to using the services of the Slavic
Reference Service will appear in hard copy in the next issue of Rodziny: The
Journal of the Polish Genealogical Society of America, Chicago, Illinois. The
Rodziny article will correct one typographical error, which appears twice, as well
in the Gen Dobry! version.

I hope that this information is useful to you. You can see a complete list of my
publications in the URL below my name.

World War I Prisoners of War #galicia

Ann Rabinowitz
 

Today, Eli Brauner posted info on the Galicia Digest about the
1914-1918 Prisoners of the First World War, Archives of the
International Committee of the Red Cross,
http://grandeguerre.icrc.org/. I think it is important too for those
of us who are researching individuals >from many other countries than
are covered by the Galicia Digest to be aware of this database.

The nationalities covered in the database are American (USA),
Austro-Hungarian, British and Commonwealth, Bulgarian, French or
Belgian, German, Greek, Italian, Portuguese, Romanian, Russian,
Serbian and Turkish.

The following is just one example of what is available in the database:
"List #120 of Austrian or Hungarian Prisoners of War, Civilians,
Appendix C": Serial #, Surname, Christian Name, Age or Date of Birth,
Rank, Military Particulars, Home Address, etc., and Birth Place, Place of
Internment, Place and Date of Capture, etc.

My grandmother's cousin Jacob Oxenberg >from Drohobycz, Ukraine,
lived in Manchester, England. Due to his alien status during World War
I, he was interned in several places in England. This is reflected as
follows in the database:

Serial #19081 A (5); Jacob (or Jack) Oxenberg; born June 10 (no year);
Schneiderpresser (occupation); Adddress: Mrs. Berta Oxenberg, 3
Johnson Street, Manchester, England; born Drohobycz; Interned at KCK
32705 (31/7); List 75 (Appendix C).

His actual card in the database stated that he was interned at Knockaloe,
Peel, Isle of Man, July 31, 1918; then on Douglas, Isle of Man, August 31,
1918; sent to a place whose name was not legible on October 30, 1918
and finally released on November 9, 1918.

Unfortunately, my grandfather, Lewis Fink, who was also interned during
World War I with his wife's cousin, was missing >from this database. He
has eluded me yet again as his internment paperwork kept by the Home
Office went missing and his military records in the Austro-Hungarian
Army prior to World War I have yet to surface.

Karl Schneider, deported >from Euskirchen to the Riga Ghetto, was the only
survivor of his family.
His wife, Frieda, née Heumann, and his two boys, Erwin and Harry, were
murdered in Riga. After
Karl's death in 1961 his second wife Gerda, née Kallmann, found his memoir,
"Religiöses Leben im
Ghetto von Riga", with his own English translation "Religious Life in the
Riga Ghetto".
