Prague directory, 1891 #austria-czech

Logan J. Kleinwaks
 

An 1891 address and business directory for Prague, "Adressar kralovskeho
hlavniho mesta Prahy a sousednich obci Bubence, Karlina, Smichova, Kr.
Vinohrad, Vrsovic a Zizkova," is viewable online at
http://kramerius.nkp.cz/kramerius/MShowMonograph.do?id=20138. It is also
searchable there through the site-wide full-text search engine (along with
other genealogically useful sources). To view page scans, you must first
install a plugin for your web browser that can display .DjVu images, such as
the plugin available at
http://www.caminova.net/en/downloads/download.aspx?id=1 (or, you can
download PDFs of at most 20 consecutive pages).

This directory is also full-text and soundex searchable at
http://genealogyindexer.org, and search results link directly to the
matching page scans (viewing them still requires a .DjVu plugin). Results
might vary between the two sites due to their using different OCR processes.
Genealogyindexer.org's search engine also includes an "OCR-Adjusted" search
option that will attempt to find matches despite common OCR errors,
although, generally, the OCR accuracy for this directory is very high.

Note that this directory includes masculine and feminine forms of surnames,
both singular and plural, so you might want to search for multiple forms.
If you search at genealogyindexer.org, variant surname forms will
automatically be added to your search under certain circumstances described
at http://genealogyindexer.org/forum/viewtopic.php?t=493. This will usually
happen if you select "Czech + Slovak" >from the place drop-down menu, your
search term is a single word, and you are not performing a soundex search.
For example, if you search for "Novak," results for "Novakova," "Novakovi,"
and "Novakovy" will also be included; if you search for "Horacek,"
"Horackova" will also be included, etc.

Schematismus des Koenigreiches Boehmen #austria-czech

Logan J. Kleinwaks
 

Many editions of "Schematismus des Koenigreiches Boehmen," 1805-1851, are
viewable on Google Books; see
http://books.google.com/books?lr=&q=editions%3ABSBBSB10011162. These
include lists of Jews, sometimes with addresses, sometimes with occupations,
e.g., in the "Prager Judenstadt" sections. Is anyone aware of
transcriptions of any parts of these sources? The Czech National Library's
Kramerius Digital Library also has an edition not on Google Books, that of
1808, viewable at
http://kramerius.nkp.cz/kramerius/MShowMonograph.do?id=13197.

Great grandparents burial in Munich #germany

Ronnie Hess
 

Dear Gersig Friends,

I'm trying to locate the burial place of my great-grandparents,
presumably in Munich. GGF Lazarus Bar HESS (b. 1830, Adlerwirt), d.1901 in
Munich. His wife, my GGM Henriette (Jette) Kuhn HESS (b. 1836, Osterberg)
d. June 8, 1906 also in Munich. I presume these would be in the old Jewish
cemetery on Thalkirchnerstrasse. Any guidance in terms of how to access
any records >from the cemetery or contact the caretaker would be appreciated.

Best, (Ms.) Ronnie Hess Madison, WI [Please register your family names
and associated towns in the JGFF before posting them here.]
