I think 'techec" just is a bad spelling of Czech.

My wife's great grandfather was Emil Salomon Schnitzer, according to
Germany Minority Report of 1939 Birth: Sep 28 1879 - Szöllös-Györok,
Hungary, Residence: May 1939 - Wrocław, Poland. He was deported from

Thank you,

Question to Judith Diamond

s.lynn.diamond@...
 

Judith, are you the daughter of Samuel and Sophie Diamond, or of Herman and Freda Diamond?

And sorry if this has gone out to the whole group; I could not see how to respond just to Judith, who wrote the message. If that is not a feature of the platform, it should be.

Jews in Germany: Reichsvereinigung: Letter S

Lande
 

Continuing the project to index the card collection, Reichsvereinigung der Juden in Deutschland (Association of Jews in Germany) I have added 4,979 entries whose family names begin with the letter S.  As is the case with the previous letters, this index may be viewed on Steve Morse’s One Step Webpages, Holocaust material, German Jewish Roof Card Collection.
 
Beginning in the late 1930s, all Jews, whether or not German citizens, resident in Germany were required to register and these card registration forms were collected in Berlin.  Only about 30,000 of these cards have been found and they are held at the International Tracing Service in Bad Arolsen, where they can be viewed under the heading Reichsvereinigung. The scope of the information on each card varies, from as little as a name, to extensive information on profession, schooling and ultimate fate.
 
I am gradually indexing these cars, so far A-S, and the index is searchable by family and maiden name, places of birth and death, as well as such information as deportation, survival and country of emigration.  While this is a German collection, many of the registrants were born elsewhere, especially in Western Poland.  I have entered these places in English, e.g. Lodz, not Litzmannstadt.  Place of emigration is also given, when known, so one can identify all whose destination was e.g. Argentina.  Using additional information available at the USHMM, I have also added information which does not appear on the cards, e.g. while an individual was deported, he may have survived.
 
If you find names of interest, first examine the cards on the Bad Arolsen website under Reichsvereinigung, making sure to look at both sides of each card.  Only then, if you still have questions, please free to contact me and I shall try to help

As a retired optometrist research has shown that black on white, i.e., greater contrast, improves visualization of text.  Additionally, as we age a larger font would also make it easier to read the text.

Re: SS5 Question for Immigrants #usa #poland

Sheila Toffell
 

We immigrated here in 1978 when my husband was asked to open an office for his company in the US.  We had to get SSNs for the two of us and our toddler daughter to be able to rent, get health insurance, establish credit, pay taxes  etc. Just as an FYI  - a credit history from one country does not transfer to another country – at least it didn’t back then. We were starting from scratch!

Re: SIG emails

Davida Handler
 

  I also have not been receiving any SIG emails since the new Digest was formed.  What is going wrong?  It also doesn't want to accept my JewishGen password, which I have used since approximately since 1990.  Davida Noyek Handler - co-founder of LitvakSIG in 1997.


Re: Multiple digests

Mike Posnick
 

I agree with Dick Plotz about the digest. In addition, for those of us with some degree of visual impairment, the text of the new system is a problem, as it permits messages to be sent to the group in very small sizes and fonts that are difficult to read.

The new system appears to be a solution in search of a problem. While some of the new features are desirable, others are not. More thought should have been given to the changes before they were introduced. I would suggest a return to the old system until a system can be found that will permit the gradual introduction of new features without destroying what participants liked about the old system.

Finally, I believe the JewishGen rules require messages to be signed with the sender’s name, e-mail address, and location. I wish JewishGen would enforce that policy.
