Re: Bad Windsheim DP Camp #germany

Am posting this to the group - rather than a personal reply in case others
may be interested in my response

My grandparents (Mr & Mrs Mauritz LEHMAN) lived in Bad Windsheim before
moving to Rothenburg.[Sadly in 1938 they were forced to move to Feurth
before being deported and killed by the Poles in 1942)

A Helmutt Hoffman wrote an amazing book about the Jews of Bad Windsheim
"Die Juden in Windsheim nach 1871". He describes in some detail the family
trees of some 30 families who lived in Windsheim going back till the late
1700's. The second part of the book is a very graphic description of the
arrival of the Nazis ,and the deportations with many official documents
from the time.
There are pages of narrative and photos on pp 398-407 about the Yeshiva
under the section UNRRA-Lager, Vaad hatzala. This seemed to be populated
by DP's >from the camps and the book mentions many specific names and
references.

It is written in German but I would happy to help you with
translation of important pages.

Helmut is still alive and lives in Windsheim but is a little fragile. He
would be delighted to speak to anyone about his work although he only
speaks German.

Let me know if you want more information

Finally, you mention you are looking for information about FARNTROG from
Feurth. I have information and some photos about the following
FARNTROG's in a book Zum Gedenken Vopn Den Nazis Eermortden Further

Shalom, Susan,

The recently-issued first four volumes of the US Holocaust Museum's
"Encyclopedia of Camps and Ghettos, 1933-1945" do not appear to mention this
sub-camp. D-91438 Bad Windsheim is located some 50 km. almost straight W of
the centre of Nurnberg (umlaut on the "u") and some 48 km. SE of the centre
of Wurzburg (umlaut on the "u").

Looking for family events in London England part 2 #general

Ruth Burkholder <ruth.burk@...>
 

Thank you to those who have replied to my first message ... I probably should say
that I have done quite a bit of internet searching in the usual places, and am
wondering if there are special databases, or exemptions >from reporting BMDs ...

And how does one determine which cemetery might have been used?

The "first child" of the 1911 census -- Sophie -- is the one we are following. Her
family story is that her mother died when she was about 12 and so she left school -
by [either her or her father] saying she was of school leaving age - so she could
look after the others. Her daughter says that she lied so often about her age that
she did not really know how old she was in later life. If Sophie is supposed to be
15 in the 1911 census ... and she left the Berner St. school in 1907, is that when
her mother died? and did Nathan marry Rebecca before that 1911 census?

The convolutions in the family stories I have heard would not have me surprised to
hear that Nathan Samuels is a 2nd husband to Rebecca and that the boys of the 1901
census are >from her first husband.

How do you find when Nathan, Rebecca, Sophie, Sarah etc. arrived in Britain >from
the continent ... >from whatever country they were born?

Vital records from Chrzanow? #galicia

Brian Lehman <blrrcn@...>
 

Hello,

I am working on researching my family >from Chrzanow, Galicia. Not the
Chrzanow near Lublin.

My ancestor Schaul Schneider came >from Chrzanow in 1885 with his wife
Scheinel and daughter Elke. They were born in the 1850s.

Would anyone know if vital records exist and where are they kept? Maybe
an index?

As Schneider is a common name, I didn't have much luck at JRI.

I would appreciate any assistance offered.

Thank you and take care,

The Invisible Tatoo, a remarkable story of discovery and survival #galicia

Michael Goldstein
 

I thought that this is worth sharing with all our Jewish Genealogy
Friends. In her Huffington Post article published yesterday, Marisa
Fox writes, "My mother, who's been dead for almost 20 years, told me
a fictionalized account of her childhood."

Marisa traces how she discovered her mother's true identity and the
shocking real story of her mother's hidden wartime experience and
survival.

Three well-known members of our Jewish genealogical community
play key roles in helping Marisa uncover the truth of how her mother
spent the war years in the Gabersdorf slave labor camp, how her
words in a friend's secret diary - written in the camp - so dramatically
describe the despair of their lives and their hopes for survival.

I was told that there are too few people familiar with Polish to fill all

Once you confirm your order is in their system to be filled, please be

Marriage Records from New Orleans 1855, HART, LAVINE, SIMON, OPPENHEIMER, JACOBOWSKY #usa

Ellen Barnett Cleary
 

In New Orleans at that period of time, people were required to have two
witnesses assuring that they were eligible to enter into a legal
marriage. Those witnesses provided surety by signing the document,
agreeing that they would be held liable to produce the amount of the
surety if the couple were shown to be ineligible to marry within two
years of their signing the document (I believe that is the date) or it
could be two years of the marriage. Marriages happened very shortly
after the license was issued, so it is not a major point.

If you have the license, it will state this information on it.

I am a member of a SIMON family in New Orleans. My great great
grandfather is Charles SIMON, husband of Dora KOHN. >from the names you
cite, this does not appear to be your Simon family, but if it is, I
would love to share information with you.

Re: Do you have knowledge about the area around Beerfelden, Germany ? Looking for Reinheimers #germany

Lin <lin2@...>
 

My great-grandmother, Rebecka Reinheimer Herz and her siblings were
born in Beerfelden, Germany. My great-grandfather lived in Numbrecht.
Beerfelden has told me my great-grandparents did not marry there, nor
were they born there. A cousin went to Numbrecht and was told they did
not get married there. I am thinking maybe they married in some town
near Beerfelden that had a larger Jewish population. Does anyone have an
idea of where that might be? Also, my great-great- grandparents were not
born and did not marry in Beerfelden. I am thinking maybe they and my
great-grandparents married in the same town. I would also like to find
my great=3Dgreat grandparents marriage/wedding certificate, license
whatever and their birth certificates. Six children were born in
Beerfelden, the first in 1839 but the standesamt said that there is no
record of the Reinheimers there before then. I guess it is also possible
the Reinheimers might have had a different last name before then???
