Polish translation to English sought - ViewMate files #74906, 74908-74911 #general

Dave Lichtenstein
 

Hello everybody

I've posted what I believe to be a court order, requested by my late
maternal Grandmother, Esther HERINGMAN (nee STEIN) for a reconstitued vittal
record in Polish for which I need a translation. It is shown in five pagess
on ViewMate at the following addresses ...
http://www.jewishgen.org/viewmate/viewmateview.asp?key=VM74906 ;
http://www.jewishgen.org/viewmate/viewmateview.asp?key=VM74908 ;
http://www.jewishgen.org/viewmate/viewmateview.asp?key=VM74909 ;
http://www.jewishgen.org/viewmate/viewmateview.asp?key=VM74910 and
http://www.jewishgen.org/viewmate/viewmateview.asp?key=VM74911

This was done after her escape to Russia and return to Poland during WWII
and may be before she was contemplating emigrating to Israel. She was
living at that time in Swidica, lower Silesia far removed >from her home town
of Brzesz Kujawski. The original records may well have been held by the
Brzesz Kujawski archives (probably no longer available following the Nazi
invasion of Poland).

I am interested in all the vital record information which appears in this
court order.

Please respond via the form provided on the ViewMate image page.

Thank you very much.

First Pinkas (1589) of Casale #general

Adam Cherson
 

Dear Researchers,

In 2014 a Hebrew translation of the first pinkas (>from 1589) of Casale
was published by Magnes Press:
https://www.magnespress.co.il/en/search?q=Minutes+Book+of+the+Jewish+Community+of+Casale+Monferrato+1589-1657&;format=print
[MOD. NOTE: shortened URL - https://tinyurl.com/y25zvpz2 ]

This is an important piece of history for Jewish Genealogists of the
Piedmont area (and specifically Casale and Alessandria, towns between
Torino and Milano). This area was one of the places refugees >from Spain
went during the late 15th and early 16th so this book could be a bridge
between later generations and the Spanish period.

I wonder if anyone has delved into this volume which I cannot read in
Hebrew? Would it be worth translating for genealogical purposes?

Appreciatively,
Adam Cherson

Re: proving ancestry in Nazi Germany #general

Lewis, Megan
 

Diana-

During the Nazi era Germans had to complete Ahnenpaess (racial passports) to
prove their Aryan blood for a variety of daily activities. For example
starting in 1936 people wanting to get married needed completed Ahnenpasses
before the marriage could place.

Each person completed their own Ahnenpass and the information required went
back into the 1800s. The form was sold at stationary stores for a few pfennigs.

For more information see "The Nazi census: identification and control in the
Third Reich" by Gotz Aly and Karl Heinz Roth.

The Netherlands had a central registry office which identified individuals by
religion but I don't know if it was used for proving Aryan heritage in the same
way as the Ahnenpass. Information on other countries requires research that I
do not have the time to do.

Clara MANKIN - Mrs. Henry MILLER #general

SCHWAB
 

Dear Group,

I am trying to learn if a March 1977 burial of a Clara MILLER at Mount Sharon
Cemetery in Springfield, Delaware, NJ is that of my second cousin, Clara
MANKIN, sister of Miriam SIMONS, nee MANKIN.

Mira and Chaya MENKIN immigrated here >from Lithuania in 1922 Clara lived with
her ABROMSON aunt (Esther, nee MANKIN) in Lower Merion, PA in both the 1930
and 1940 censuses.

I recently was made aware of Miriam's 1955 obituary which named her sister as
Mrs Henry MILLER of Riverside, New Jersey. Miriam was buried in the same Mount
Sharon Cemetery in Springfield,PA. Clara's gravestone has no Hebrew, just
'Beloved Wife, Mother, Grandmother', her date of death, March 19, 1977, age
65.

The Cemetery has, unfortunately., no contact information on her burial records
in their office.

I'd love to hear >from anyone who can help me with information,

Re: Proving ancestry in Nazi Europe #general

Enzo Falco
 

An Italian cousin whose Jewish father moved to Italy >from Germany about 1910,
told me that in Germany, after about 1933, all citizens had to keep up to
date a document, passport size, with their family tree. Every time they
updated it they had to go to the authorities where it was stamped with the
current date. I saw one in the Holocaust section of the British Imperial War
Museum and took a poor picture through the glass cabinet. I had read that
Nazi Germany encouraged the Jews to investigate their genealogy. IBM punched
cards were immensely used to keep track of all of this data.

The Nuremberg laws of about 1938 defined a Jew if less than a certain
percentage of their ancestry was Jewish. I think it was specified that you
had to have not a single Jewish grandparent for a specified number of
generations.

In Italy, according to the Anti-Jewish laws of 1938, patterned after the
Nuremberg laws, required all Jews to bring their birth certificates to the
local police station where it was stamped with, "Of the Jewish Race." I
understood that passports were also similarly stamped. Similarly to Germany,
you were not Jewish if you had no Jewish grandparents for a number of
generations. Italy, being a "nicer" country, the number of generations was
less than Germany! Also you were exempted >from this law for a number of
reasons such as being a Medal of Honor winner in WW I, having a disability
of so many limbs missing, etc.
