Holitz/Holice #austria-czech

Hello, once again.

Emil Podwinetz was born in Holitz/Holice around 1859. He died in Vienna on
the sixth of November 1910. He married Ida Haller in Prague around 1888
(their daughter Hedwig was born there on the third of March 1889.

Other than by searching for the marriage, which I will do on my next visit
to Prague, I would like to find the birth of Emil and determine if he had
any brothers or sisters.

The Gundacker list does not have Holice on it, so I suppose there are no
Jewish registers >from there.

The nearest bigger towns which are on the Gundacker list are Hradec Kralove
and Pardubice. But there are also other places. Anybody with ideas where
to search for this birth?

Thanks

Peter, when I began searching for documentation on the Auerbachs >from Becov nad
Teplou, the archives in Prague informed me that prewar documentation for that
town had been lost.

What a great surprise to find on my visit to Becov that the Town Hall had a
Register of Births and Deaths and were willing to let me search through it on
site without an appointment.

I was able to retrieve information on all Auerbachs residing in that town all
the way back to the early 1800s. Birth, death, father, mother, siblings, house
number they lived in, metier of the father, cause of death, attendants at
birth.

I would have learned a lot more but became frustrated with trying to decipher
handwritten German script.

The point is that even though there may not be records available in some
central archive, mistakes do happen and there may be some records available in
the town/village in which you're interested and a physical visit may unearth
them.

According to "Soupis matrik Zidovskych nabozenskych obci v Cechach"
(List of birth, marriage and death registers of the Jewish communities in
Bohemia) archived in the Narodni archiv Praha (former Statni ustredni
archiv Praha) are following registers >from Holice in the Prague archiv:
Birth: 1839-1913, 1817-1924, 1933-1939, 1944
Marriage: 1869-1924, 1930-1939, 1944
Death: 1869-1924, 1929-1939, 1944
Index (mostly only Number and name) of birth, marriage and death: 1839-1938
Index of death: 1873
