Date: Thu, 28 Jan 2016 has databases for the following on their website:

Berlin Germany, Births, 1874 - 1899 (in German)

Berlin, Germany, Selected Marriages, 1874 - 1920 (in German)

Berlin, Germany, Selected Deaths, 1874 - 1920 (in German)

If you could find a document for your grandparents in one of these

databases, most probably it would include the religion of the individuals.

Most of them did.

You should also check out the Kehila Links page for Berlin at:

It was beautifully created by Eli Rabinowitz

You also wrote that you are searching for information for your father from

1888 when he was born.  But you did not write *where* he was born.  It is

difficult to locate documents if you do not know where to look.

I hope this is helpful.

Subject: Re: Berlin records 1880-1939

From: "Roger Lustig (GerSIG)" <>

Date: Mon, 19 Oct 2015 10:07:16 -0400

[A message in the JewishGen Discussion Group forum asked about

family registers in Berlin during the 1880-1939 period.]

Did the Berlin authorities maintain family registers? Yes.

Was one obligated to register with the police when moving, either

into/out of town or within? Yes.

Did the records survive the war? Well...

Most of them did not, it would seem. A set of registration cards,

primarily those that had been removed from the main file because the

people listed were no longer resident, has survived--in part. The place

to go is the Berlin State Archive: The archive

considers them confidential and fragile and doesn't allow direct public


However, they do lookups, and there's an English-language form available

(see link at bottom of page). Ten Euros per name.

Remarkable HD Footage of Berlin from July 1945

Subject: German Jewish genealogy library in Melbourne, Victoria, Australia BOOK LIST

From: Beverley Davis <>

Date: Tue, 2 Dec 2014

Way back in July 2007 I submitted the following information to the

German Jewish SIG. In recent weeks there have been messages listing

similar books, and I thought it timely to re-send my original email for

the benefit of our newer list members.

During the 27 years I worked as a volunteer secretary, archivist

genealogist, librarian and research officer for the Australian Jewish

Historical Society (Melbourne, Victoria), one of our members

had in 1990 visited his distant relative in Germany, the late

Gerhard Ballin, and was given a large collection of books specifically

relating to German Jewish genealogy.

      Upon returning to Australia the member very kindly

      donated the 31 books to the AJHSV library, and I have

      listed them below.

        Enquiries should be directed to the Honorary Secretary,

        Australian Jewish Historical Society (Victoria)

        P.O. Box 8420, Armadale, Victoria 3143, Australia.

        email:  <>

Hope this information is of help and interest to members of GerSIG.

Subject: Database of B'nai B'rith members in Berlin and other towns in Germany

From: Donna Levinsohn <>

Date: Mon, 24 Nov 2014

I don't believe that anyone has posted before about, so I thought I'd mention that although it's primarily devoted to Austrian

genealogy (both Jewish and non-Jewish), it has a searchable database entitled "Lodges" which includes members not only of various Masonic

lodges but also of B'nai B'rith (U.O.B.B.) lodges, and includes, in addition to B'nai B'rith lodges in Austria, lodges in Berlin and several other locations such as Hamburg.

The Berlin information appears to consist of all the members of each of the nine B'nai B'rith lodges that existed in Berlin in the 1920's, and seems all to be based on B'nai B'rith directories and address books from 1927-1928.  In addition to names, the database usually includes the date each member first joined B'nai B'rith, and (sometimes) the person's occupation.

At least for the Deutsche Reichsloge No. 1 and the Berthold Auerbach lodges -- the two oldest of the Berlin lodges, formed in 1882 and 1883, respectively, with over 1000 members between them in 1928 (down from 1300 in 1922) -- the database also includes information on deceased members, dating all the way back to the lodges' formation, with dates of death.  (I am reasonably certain that the data on

deceased members was also derived from late 1920's B'nai B'rith address books; for example, the 1928/29 B'nai B'rith address book, covering all of Germany, has a list of nearly 400 deceased members of the Berthold Auerbach lodge, with death dates ranging from April 4, 1884 to July 12, 1928.)

I was able to find my maternal grandfather, Ernst MOSEVIUS (who joined the Deutsche Reichsloge in 1920), his father (who had belonged to the same lodge and died in 1912), and more than a half-dozen other relatives -- my grandfather's cousins, uncles, etc., with surnames including JORDAN, MARCUSE, GOERITZ, and ABEL -- in the database.

The information in the databases on the "Johannis" lodges in Berlin and other locations -- the name used in Germany for Masonic lodges covering the first three degrees of masonry -- may also be useful, since at least some of those lodges had Jewish members, and I was able to find one relative listed.

If anyone believes they have a family member who was an officer of one of the Berlin B'nai B'rith lodges in the 1920's or early 1930's, please let me know and I will check for you: I have copies of publications listing all the officers of each of the 9 Berlin lodges for each of the five years from 1928/29 through 1932/33 (my grandfather was Protokoll-Sekr. of the Deutsche Reichsloge for the first two of those years, Vice-President for the next two, and President for the fifth year, as well as in 1933/34), as well as lists of the officers of the Deutsche Reichsloge and the Berthold Auerbach lodge for 1922/23, 1923/24, and 1925/26.  I also have a copy of the deceased members list for the Berthold Auerbach lodge, referenced above.

Separately, if anyone had a family member who belonged to the Leo Baeck Lodge (No. 1531) of B'nai B'rith in New York City , they shouldalso let me know.

(The Leo Baeck Lodge in N.Y.C., not to be confused with the one in London, was intended as a United States version of the former German B'nai B'rith lodges, which were all shut down by the Nazis in 1937; it was founded in 1944 with a membership consisting of some 400 former B'nai B'rith members from Germany who had immigrated to the United States, and continued in existence until at least the mid-1970's.)  

I have quite a bit of information on this lodge, including a copy of the Charter from 1944 with approximately 300 names; copies of photos of the board members in 1944, 1954, and 1964; and the names of all the Presidents and many of the other officers from 1944-1964 and 1970.  (My grandfather was a charter member of the Leo Baeck Lodge, an officer for all or most of that period, and President for two terms; hence my interest.)

Two Jewish Berlins, Divided by the Wall

With the fall of the Berlin Wall 25 years ago, the city’s two Jewish communities, invisible to one another for so long, suddenly came face-to-face.


From: Edward David Luft

Good resources for researching available publications are the Library of Congress website at and the Family History Library catalog at

The Leo Baeck Institute, New York City, has many holdings on the Jews of Berlin.  See, for example,,

Many of the Jews in Berlin had origins in Silesia and especially in Posen.  A large number of these Jews were buried in Weissensee Cemetery.  Some of the progenitors are listed in Luft, Edward David, The Naturalized Jews of the Grand Duchy of Posen in 1834 and 1835, Revised Edition,

For a list of the dates of Jewish emancipation for the various states that became the German Empire and some other locations, see

One useful resource is the list of Official Journals of the Prussian district governments,  One of these is Berlin.  Unfortunately, not all of the years are posted, such as the 1814 lists of Jews naturalized as a result of the 11 March 1812 Decree emancipating the Jews of Prussia, including those of Berlin.  Posen Jews were not naturalized until after the Edict of 30 July 1833.  Some of these lists are available at the Library of Congress, the Leo Baeck Institute in New York City, etc. or through the Mormons on microfilm.  Search under the name of the province and then look under Jewish records.

For a copy of the 11 March 1812 Edict of Emancipation of the Jews (including those of Berlin), see;view=1up;seq=431

One CD-Rom that is particularly rich in Berlin Jewish resources is Bibliographie zur deutsch-jüdischen Familienforschung und zur neueren Regional- und Lokalgeschichte der Juden (Bibliography on German-Jewish family research and on recent regional and local history of the Jews) by Angelika G. Ellmann-Krüger and Dietrich Ellmann, (Wiesbaden:  Harrassowitz Verlag, 2006), ISBN 978-3-447-05447-8.  See but Avotaynu, Inc. no lnger sells CD-Roms.  Order from Harrassowitz:  The CD-Rom is accessible in both German and in English.

Research Tips from Alexander Watson, Lyon France:

1. The Z-LB archive is immediately accessible and there is an absolutely wonderful research staff there who will help you find what it is you are looking for by internet and give you concise but friendly information about where to seek help if they cannot do so. And all this for free. As access to LDS information is restricted to a list of microfilms that can be consulted if you send a form and pay, it seems to me that Z-LB works better, and should be more of a priority than LDS.

10)  1939 German Minority Census


There was a census taken of all the "minorities" living in Germany in 1939; this included Gypsies, Jehovah's witnesses, and Jews.  It's actually called the Non-Aryan Census.  It was how Hitler got a list of all the aliens so he could round them up.   This census was carried out throughout Nazi Germany in May, 1939.  It is available, in its entirety, on several hundred FHL 16 mm microfilms. There are 130 microfilm records for Berlin which are arranged alphabetically by surname.   The reels are organized geographically, and the FHL has a three-ring index binder, showing which reels correspond to which towns and cities, and in the larger cities, for which there are many reels, there is an alphabetical name breakdown.


The microfilms from Berlin are listed in the LDS Family Search website at:

The film numbers go from:  1742147…..Aal, H. - Alexander, F.  to 1742289…..Zickel, A. - Zytniecki, B.


The actual census forms are alphabetized according to the name of the head of the household, and there are many cross reference index cards to find people who were not the heads of the household.  The information includes: Name, profession, date of birth, place of birth, current address, and the same data for all persons living in the same household, which could include, wife, children, in-laws, boarders, etc. The form bears the signature of the head of household.


The entire census is held at the United States Memorial Museum in Washington, DC and is also available through the LDS Family Search Library. 


There is a book explaining the census and giving reference to the towns from where there are records:

Series: Avotaynu monograph series


Further advice from Barbara Algaze:

To obtain vital records (birth, marriage and death) from Berlin, you need to know in which district your relatives lived.

Then go to this website for a direct link to the correct office:


From there, you can contact them online or by telephone.  Most German officials speak perfectly good English, so if you do not know German, you can write to them in English.  You will probably have to give proof of his identity as there is a 100 year privacy rule on most family documents from Germany.


Please note, for births during the Nazi era, the first name on birth certificates may have been changed; to “Israel” for males and to “Sara” for females

Research Tip from Toby Bird, NYC:

My family is from Lithuania. I have no connection to Berlin, but there are many books to recommend. I'm just about to start What I Saw: Reports from Berlin 1920-1933 by Joseph Roth with an introduction by Michael Hofmann. It's a compilation of Roth's newspaper columns, organized by subject. For example, Part II consists of 4 columns on the Jewish Quarter. Many photos. From front cover, a quote from Cynthia Ozick: "[Roth] captures and encapsulates Europe in those uncertain hours before the upheaval of a continent and the annihilation of a civilization."

I'm reading it to post a review on my blog. If you type Berlin in the search box a number of others I've already reviewed will come up.


Research Tip from Alice Marcus Solovy, Highland Park, Illinois:

I found a very helpful resource--"Der Judenburgerbucher der Stadt Berlin" which also has dates in the title.  Unfortunately, I can't remember the dates, but the start of the title should help find it.  I was able to get it on an interlibrary loan several years ago.  It lists the early citizens of Berlin.  I had ancestors in the book.  John Henry Richter had worked on it.  He was an expert on Berlin Jewish genealogy and later was a librarian at the University of Michigan in Ann Arbor.  We both wrote for "SEARCH," the journal of the Jewish Genealogy Society of Illinois.  If any of his papers survive, they would be a great resource.  You might check with the Jewish History Center of New York, which includes the archives of the LeoBaeck Institute, and even the University of Michigan.
