Request for Your Assistance on Learning About Archive Access Problems For Holocaust and Holocaust Era Records #austria-czech

Jan Meisels Allen
 

Dear Jewish Genealogist:

I will be talking in Europe in June on access to Holocaust and Holocaust era
records. I am asking you for your assistance on problems you may have
incurred when trying to access these Holocaust records. Not all records are
birth, marriage, death or census records. These records could be
institutional records, passport, transit visas, concentration camp records,
property records, art works and other similar documents. With respect to
access to archives, either in person or by written communication, had you
encountered problems or obstacles with respect to the availability of the
records. I do not mean if the records are not on the Internet and
therefore, they are not accessible >from the comfort on our homes.

The scope of this covers not only vital records >from 1860-1948-the time
frame people in the holocaust may have been alive to just after the
Holocaust and includes displaced persons camp records. We need to know who
was there in order to know who is no longer there- which is why I am also
asking about records that would tell us who was alive at the time-i.e.
starting in the 1860's--the outside date of someone still alive in
1939-1945. If you know the person died before the Holocaust please do not
reply that you can't get their records-this if for people alive at the
beginning of the Holocaust. I am looking for information on access
problems-whether a government agency or private archive ignored your
request, refused access to the records, the records were not researchable
when at the archives, the cost of obtaining the records was prohibitive, in
other words obstacles you may have encountered >from a government archive or
private archive for archival documents that cover the Holocaust or Holocaust
era type governments.

I would appreciate if you would get back to me back with the following: name
of country, archive and the type of access problem you incurred. We
recognize that some countries have specific time embargoes before records
may be accessible--and that is an access impediment that can be submitted. I
would appreciate your objective comments and not "complaints" as we need to
know where and what the problems are before we can try to get changes.

On the other hand, if you had a positive experience I would also like to
hear about that as positive examples to show others is helpful.

I would appreciate hearing >from you before April 30.

Thank you in advance for your assistance.

Re: Request for Your Assistance on Learning About Archive Access Problems For Holocaust and Holocaust Era Records #austria-czech

Fritz Neubauer
 

Dear Jan,

one useful task you could possibly accomplish during your visit to
Europe would be to pay a visit to the German National Library (Deutsche
Nationalbibliothek) and ask them when they are likely to put their
digital collections "Exilpresse digital" and "Juedische Periodika aus
NS-Deutschland" back online.

This collection had been online for years and was very useful for
genealogical purposes, especially for holocaust research. About two
years ago online access was suddenly withdrawn for copyright reasons. As
you can read under

http://www.dnb.de/DE/DEA/Kataloge/Exilpresse/exilpresse_node.html

They became afraid that they would be sued by non-existing authors or
their heirs. In the meantime a new German copyright law has been passed
by the German Parliament about 6 months ago in view of this problem -
but still nothing has happened since.

I remember that Frau Asmus mentioned somewhere that there had to be
some licensing body ... Note that the digitalization had been
financed bypublic funds.

One of the periodicals in the collection, the New York publication
Aufbau is in the meantime accessible through an US serverat

https://archive.org/details/aufbau

in much better quality than the issues in the Exilpresse holdings, and
the new access contains ALL issued ever published, while the DNB holding
stopped after 1946. But there are various other periodicals in the two
collections which are only accessible if you personally go to Frankfurt
or Leipzig (how convenient!).

I think it would be worthwhile to interview Frau Asmus, who is in charge
of this department about the prospects of returning the collections online.

Thanks for your assistance!

JewishGenealogical conference in Salt Lake City, July, 2014, 27 July - 1 August. #bessarabia

Dear Researchers, dear friends,

We have a very interesting and exciting conference this year.
You may remember that our Bessarabia SIG invited a guest speaker Alla
Chastina >from Kishinev to present on two topics:

"JEWISH LIFE IN BESSARABIA AS IT'S REFLECTED IN BESSARABIAN NEWSPAPERS OF
THE 1850-1930" and
"BESSARABIAN JEWISH ENTREPRENEURS IN THE 1870 - 1917". Both of these topics
were approved by conference committee.

The knowledge and expertise of Alla Chastina will show us another view on
Jews >from different archival documents.
These lectures and her research may broader our understanding on Bessarabian
Jewish Genealogy, and that will help many of us to find more useful
information for our personal research.

We need your help to get Alla to the conference. Her lectures will not only
help our members at the conference, but EVERYONE in our well organized
group. Please consider donate $25, $50, $100 to the Bessarabia SIG Speakers
Bureau
(JewishGen.org / DONATE/ Bessarabia SIG / Bessarabia SIG Speakers Bureau).

Thank you in advance,

Hungary-Israel-Canada research advice #general

Rony Golan <golanron@...>
 

I am seeking advice on how to proceed with a research puzzle:

Istvan ROSENBERG was born in Budapest during WWII (in 1942). I got his birth
certificate. It only states a name for a mother. His mother was Ester
ROSENBERG. I know that this was her maiden name.

Ester arrived to Israel at the beginning of the 1970's. She stayed in Israel
for a short while and returned to Hungary.

By that time her name was BUCSKO Jozsefne (a married name meaning that she
was the wife of Jozsef BUCSKO).

By that time or a bit later, Istvan may have gotten to Israel. He was
nicknamed "Itsik". He left Israel. I heard >from someone that he left for
Canada.

I can't find neither Istvan ROSENBERG nor Istvan BUCSKO (if he assumed his
mother's husband's name) not in Hungary, not in Israel and not in Canada.

I have tried the Hungarian archives site and cemetery, the Canadian archives
site and most Israeli resources to no avail.

I haven't found any clue for Ester or Jozsef after 1972.

I will be happy to get ideas as to what else can be done.

Many thanks & Happy Pessach,

Looking for descendants: ALTNEU - Czernowitz, Chile, USA #general

Thomas Lerman
 

I recently found information about a relative Ida SCHMETTERLING. She
married Jakob ALTNEU. They had a child, Ruth Altneu. All three births
and marriage occurred in Czernowitz. I tracked them to Chile, probably
the same as listed at:
http://www.jewishgen.org/yizkor/bukowinabook/buk2_197.html

I also tracked at least Ida going to Brazil. A family member remembers
the family coming to the USA in the 1950s. They thought maybe New
Jersey. I found what might be Jacob's death in New York in May 1986,
but have not been able to verify it. I also found at least Ida and Ruth
living in Florida with what appears to be Ida's death in 25-Nov-1997
in Ft. Lauderdale. I have not been able to get death certificates,
obituaries, wills, cemeteries, or any other information to verify much
of this. I have not been able to find out what happened to Ruth.

Any suggestions would be appreciated. Please respond privately unless
of general help for others,

I also tracked at least Ida going to Brazil. A family member remembers
the family coming to the USA in the 1950s. They thought maybe New
Jersey. I found what might be Jacob's death in New York in May 1986,
but have not been able to verify it. I also found at least Ida and Ruth
living in Florida with what appears to be Ida's death in 25-Nov-1997
in Ft. Lauderdale. I have not been able to get death certificates,
obituaries, wills, cemeteries, or any other information to verify much
of this. I have not been able to find out what happened to Ruth.

Any suggestions would be appreciated. Please respond privately unless
of general help for others,

I know that my gr grandfather Sam (Hyman) KROENDELL or KROENDEL died Nov.
25, 1917 in NYC. His headstone is in Washington Cemetery along with his wife
Dora and son Jack.

I have the date but I need a certificate number to order the death
certificate >from familysearch.org.
I can't find him on Italiangen.org. Do you have any suggestions as to how
to get this certificate number? Could there be a reason it is not there on
italiangen.org?
Death certificates are issued by the county where the person died, not
where they lived. If the person did not die within one of the Boroughs
of NYC, the the certificate would not have been indexed on
ItalianGen.org. I suggest calling the cemetery and asking them if they
can tell you in which county Sam died.

Cemeteries do not have death certificates, but they should have body
transport permits. I have had success at some cemeteries with this
request and have then contacted counties outside of NYC (e.g.,
Rensselaer and Sullivan). Be nice to the cemetery receptionist on the
phone, but insistent. I have also had the experience with one cemetery
where one time they provided the information and another they said
they didn't have it. They likely still had it. The person answering
the phone just may not have been familiar with the files.
