Records for Kassel prior to 1874 SCHWARZSCHILD #germany


Melody Schloss
 

I am trying to trace the family of my husband's great grandmother Johanne
SCHWARZSCHILD who was born in Kassel 15 Sep 1872, married Moritz SEEMANN,
and perished in the Theresienstadt ghetto.

I have searched available records online for Kassel for 1872 and
earlier, but have been unsuccessful. I have a USAncestry subscription
and also searched the microfilms available >from LDS Family History
Libraries but found none filmed. I also tried the Hessen archives but
it appears there is nothing for Kassel prior to 1874.

I would appreciate any direction for locating Kassel records for
this time period, preferably online, as I live in the US and cannot
research in Germany myself. Regards,

Internet research for Jews in Kassel is quite comfortable. There are
digital images of diverse registers for the years 1744 - 1886 in the
Hessian "archive information system" = Arcinsys. The direct access is
via http://tinyurl.com/oxx5hpv where you select the letter K on the left.
Another access is via LAGIS http://tinyurl.com/jd9bv4u
as I wrote yesterday.

In the case of Johanna SCHWARZSCHILD the link to the image is :
