Seeking Fritz BUKOFZER, film producer- Paris > Switzerland #france


David Selig
 

Hi Jewishgenners

I live in Paris.

I am trying to track down information on : -

Fritz BUKOFZER.

He was a film producer, lived in Paris from 1933? (or 34 or 35) until
the War, then Sth of France, then Paris again
He died in Switzerland, around 1957 or 1958.

He married my grandmother, Martha née OPPENHEIMER, who was born
26.11.1897, Bad Mergentheim, Germany
he was her second husband
(Benno SELIG, her first husband, died in Mannheim, 1931)

What ressources may be available?

I would like to know if they married in Germany (most likely) or in France.
And his birth and death details.
ON Imdb, there is information which I think is wrong, and is taken from
"Geni" site.
Thanks for any help, Best wishes to all

David Selig, Paris, France

Hi David,

A search on Google Books for "Fritz BUKOFZER" finds his name mentioned in several books.  Perhaps something there may be a clue for you?

Also, there is a very large collection regarding people in the performing arts at The NY Public Library at Lincoln Center.
https://www.nypl.org/about/locations/lpa/special-collections

When the library fully re-opens (still closed to the public due to Covid)  than perhaps you can find someone in NYC who can stop by the library and check the index for Fritz BUKOFZER.

I went there years ago and found a surprisingly large folder on a relatively obscure actor and silent film performer that I was researching.

Also, have you checked newspapers for an obituary?  The NY Times, for example?

Hi Sherri ,   you do not quote the message to which you respond.

Thanks and be safe

Hi David

If they married in Paris you should find their marriage record online on Paris archives (they put the marriage records until 1944 online).
If you don't know the date of their marriage or the arrondissement where they lived, you could look first at the tables annuelles.
http://archives.paris.fr/r/124/etat-civil-de-paris/

There are also the census records 1926, 1931,1936 of Paris online, but you need to know their address or the arrondissement.

Do you know where in Switzerland he died? I didn't find a mention of his death or burial in the Swiss newspapers archives.

Fritz BUKOFZER was buried in the Jewish cemetery in Lucerne (Switzerland) between January and April 1958. 
Maybe the Jewish Community in Lucerne can provide you with the exact date and has further information.

Rodney,

Thank you for your concise explanation.  I did not realize the "view all messages in topic" was to be found there.  This is very helpful information since I still find the new discussion list format challenging to use.

Thank you!

Hi Rodney,  that was sweet of you totry to put me right.  Sadly, it does not.  This "new format"Jewishgen messaging requires the user to be vigilant where in the past it was automatic.  I do not get a digest.  I get individual messages.  Without the previous message being quoted, I cannot know what the writer is ytaking about.

I mourn the fleshpots of Egypt.....

Be well

David
