A clarification here....

Jeffrey is not referring to COPIES of records ordered >from the Polish
State Archives which are more than 100 years old.

His reference is to EXTRACTS of records ordered at Polish Consulates
or Embassies. As I recall, the rate of $35 is the one used by the
Polish Consulate in New York and may be similar at other Consulates
in the U.S. Researchers should be aware that it is often worthwhile to
request such EXTRACTS directly >from Civil Records Offices who may
send it directly without charge or may send it via the Consulate route
with a cost similar to the one mentioned by Jeffrey.

For further information on ordering directly >from the Civil Records
Offices, consult Warren Blatt's PolandV Infofile on JewishGen.

How would I go about contacting the Urkundenamt in Berlin? Dusseldorf?

Jeffrey Geizhals
Dear Jeffrey,

It appears to be easier to get information about Duesseldorf than Berlin!

The central office has an information line for e-mail inquiries:
info@duesseldorf.de

Using this would save you both time AND cash!

The mailing address is:

Stadtverwaltung der Landeshauptstadt Duesseldorf, D-40200 Germany

They have offices on different streets, with the Standesamt at
Inselstrasse 17

The e-mail address of that office is
standesamt@stadt.duesseldorf.de

The web-site URL (most recently updated on Oct. 17, 2000!) is
http://www.duesseldorf.de/w4rh/html/amt18.htm
They even give you the times to call them on the phone, if you wish to
discuss various questions. The birth and death "books" can be discussed
Monday-Friday 8.00-12.30, and Thursday 15.00-17.00.

Berlin cannot compare with this kind of accessibility information, at
least not based on what I have been able to find...

Best wishes for success!
Ernie

Is there anything akin to the Vienna IKG for the major German cities like Berlin?

Barbara:
Every major city in Berlin has an organized Jewish community. The one in
Berlin has excellent records of burials at Weissensee and probably at
other cemeteries too. What are you looking for?

Try googling 'judische gemeinde <city>' (never mind the umlaut). That
should get you to within a page or two of a contact email.
