Gnesen, Prussia Records in Germany #germany

Hello Mrs. Robin,

I might be able to help you with respect to the names that you listed. I
am the author of The Naturalized Jews of the Grand Duchy of Posen in 1834
and 1835, http://www.avotaynu.com/books/posen.htm That book contains
references to Ascher and Pinkus. Cohen is the western German spelling for
Cohn and Kohn, the eastern German spelling. My book lists Cohns, Kohns,
and Kahns. Some of them are >from towns that you listed.

You might wish to consult the URL below my name to see if any of my
published articles, some of which can be read free of charge, anonymously,
in full-text on line, might be useful to you. I have several articles, one
in both English and Polish, specifically on Poznan Jewish research. See
"Poznan City Genealogical and Historical Research, Emphasizing Jewish
Resources," Gen Dobry!, Vol. X, No. 6, June 2009, pp. 2-19, including
endnotes, pp. 17-19.
<http://www.polishroots.org/LinkClick.aspx?fileticket=164mhlXT35w%3d&tabid=60&mid=377>,
pp. 2-19. It is also available in hard copy.

I wish you success in your further searches.

Helene,

Jewish records in Poznan (ex Posen) State Archives for Gniezno cover
the following years:

Marriages: 1840-1845 and 1847-1848
Births: 1823-1845 and 1847-1848
Deaths: 1840-1845 and 1847-1848

It appears that the the earliest Roman Catholic (>from 1812) and Protestant (>from
1802) records for Gniezno are also located in Poznan State Archives. Perhaps
Archives located in Germany do not have Gniezno records.

I am looking for vital records for the Jewish community in Gnesen, Prussia
(now Gniezno, Poland) before the mid-19th century. According to
JRI-Poland, there are very few such records in Poland. Does anyone
know in which German archives these records might be?
