Re: Standesamt [and family registers - a success story] #germany

Edward Stone
 

In the late 80's I was told about the Standesamt by a distant relative in
Lubbock, Texas, who grew up in Germany and knew about the Standesamt. I
wrote to that agency in several ancestral German towns and gave them the
name of my great grandfather who was born in the late 1840s in the small
town of Schwegenheim.
Several weeks later I received a family tree starting with my great
grandfather with names and locations of his ancestry back to the late 1700s.

In 2003 I went to the Standesamt in both of those locations and was
shown (and given copies) of the original documents which were used
to create the family tree.

I since had those documents translated and have found them to be
invaluable. And the hospitality shown to us in these rural towns
(near Speyer) was wonderful and memorable.

Looking for Info about BETLEJA family of Polomyja, Strzyzow, Subcarpathians #galicia

Catherine Betley-Fotino <cathylb45@...>
 

I have been having difficulty locating info on any of my paternal
grandfather's family members >from Galicia area.

Blacej BETLEJA (aka Blaise Betley) immigrated to the US probably
sometime in 1910/1911. He spoke mainly Polish. He told my parents
that he was 16 years old and a stowaway on a cattle ship because he
didn't want to live the life of his father as a sheepherder nor to be
drafted into the army.

We have a few US documents (eg, marriage-related, naturalization,
draft card of 1942, death certificate of a child, census records) which
list a variety of spellings of his first name (ie, Blacej, Blazej, Balcej,
Bliziy, Blozey, Blazey, Blaise), as well as his birthdate (ie, either March
20 or March 23 of 1893, 1894, 1895, 1897). His ethnicity is listed as
either Polish or Austrian. Some documents also contain his birthplace
as Polomyja, Strzyzow, Subcarpathians. Surname tends to be BETLEJA
in early years and Betley in later years. He died in Dec 1961. The
mortuary's funeral card listed his age as 70 but with no birthdate on it.

Some documents list his father's name as Thomas (Tomasz?) BETLEJA
and his mother's as Agnes MATELNA.

In the 1960s or 1970s, a paternal uncle -- a Catholic monk in the
Franciscan order -- visited Poland several times and heard that the
BETLEJA branch of the family may have been Jewish. Additionally, one
of my sisters once came into contact with a person at her Catholic
church (in America) who had been in a WWII concentration camp; that
individual told her the name BETLEJA is Jewish. I cannot bring up
BETLEJA when doing search of JewishGen surnames.

The only info I have been able to uncover when doing a number of
online searches is of a Tadeusz BETLEJA mentioned as dying in the
1939 Campaign. It looks like perhaps he was a university geographer
recognized by other university geographers who were interred in
concentration camps. I also saw mention of a Stefan BETLEJA who,
pre-WWII, had been secretary of municipalities in that area. I have no
idea if either of them would have been related to my paternal
grandfather.

Yizkor Book Project, October 2013 #usa

Lance Ackerfeld <lance.ackerfeld@...>
 

Shalom,

Busy, busy, busy is how I would describe the level of activity in the Yizkor
Book Project over the month of October. I am pleased to let you know that
over the last month no less than three projects were completed and I would
like to sincerely thank all of the people involved with them who saw these
projects through to their successful completion online. The projects are:

Halmeu, Romania (In memory of the communities of Halmin-Turcz and vicinity)

Through Forests and Pathways

This means we now have around 90 projects that are online in their entirety
and quite a few have been published as part of our Yizkor Books in Print

details of the books that are now available in print and others that are in
the works may be found at: http://www.jewishgen.org/yizkor/ybip.html

All the projects I note in my reports owe their existence to a considerable
number of volunteers (500+) and we endeavor to credit all of those who are
involved and have been involved in the YB Project over the years (>from 1994)
in the following list appearing at: http://www.jewishgen.org/yizkor/ If you
have yet to become involved in our project and would like to take part in

Burial Registry) (http://www.jewishgen.org/databases/Cemetery/) will be at

Early American SIG #USA Yizkor Book Project, October 2013 #usa

Lance Ackerfeld <lance.ackerfeld@...>
 

Shalom,

Busy, busy, busy is how I would describe the level of activity in the Yizkor
Book Project over the month of October. I am pleased to let you know that
over the last month no less than three projects were completed and I would
like to sincerely thank all of the people involved with them who saw these
projects through to their successful completion online. The projects are:

Halmeu, Romania (In memory of the communities of Halmin-Turcz and vicinity)
Slovakia (The Tragedy of Slovak Jewry in Slovakia)
Through Forests and Pathways

This means we now have around 90 projects that are online in their entirety
and quite a few have been published as part of our Yizkor Books in Print
Project and many others are in the process of being prepared for print. More
details of the books that are now available in print and others that are in
the works may be found at: http://www.jewishgen.org/yizkor/ybip.html

All the projects I note in my reports owe their existence to a considerable
number of volunteers (500+) and we endeavor to credit all of those who are
involved and have been involved in the YB Project over the years (>from 1994)
in the following list appearing at: http://www.jewishgen.org/yizkor/ If you
have yet to become involved in our project and would like to take part in
the very gratifying experience of seeing these translations go online, I'd
be happy to hear >from you.
