A fantastic new resource on JewishGen using the All-Germany database -- these are photographs of vital records (births, marriages and deaths) in Hesse. Much of Waldeck district and a good part of northern Hesse have been indexed.

you can also find these at the Hessen Archives
search for the town, then look for the Judenregister

Thanks so much, Mark.
The only advantage to going with JewishGen is that they have catalogued some of these so that you can find someone without knowing the town.

I tried understanding how to use this site (Hadis)
Can we actually get some info on the internet?
Can someone give and example with steps how to get the information?
Here is something I would be happy to find :
A record of my grandfather RIP : Max Mordechai KATZ
Born in :Guxhagen, Hesse, Germany

Hi Ori,

Here's the record for Max:

Here are some step by step hints if you're doing research by town.

If you're searching by name, I would use the Jewishgen site.

Dennis and Ori,
today I tried to use HADIS as I wanted to help Ori going through it because I'm able to read German!

I tried "Judenregister" and I tried Geburtenregister of 1902 via Schwalm-Eder- Kreis because Max Mordechai Katz was born 1902.
I discovered that Guxhagen belonged also to Schwalm-Eder-Kreis than
Fritzlar. You see I really came to the Geburtenregister but I couldn't see any name.

If you click the link you will get to a screen that says "Bitte melden Sie sich hier erneut an" click on the word "hier". On the next screen in the lower left you will see Schnellsuche: with a search box below it. In the search box type in the name of the town you are looking for and click on the magnifying glass. If there is an archive for that town it will load in about a minute. Then scroll down looking for a file called judenregister and click on it. For most towns you will see a geburtregister (brth register), trautregister (marriage register) and sterberegister (death register) some also have a personam register which is basically the jewish census taken when they started keeping these records. Click on the file that you want. If the record has been digitized on the next screen the word "media" should appear in the upper left. Click on "media" and the digitized file will open. If "media" does not appear, that file has not yet been digitized.

Having been involved in the indexing of many of these Registers from Kreis Kirchhain and Kreis Marburg it's important for everyone to realize that virtually all the entries are written in "alte deutsche handschriften" and thus require some familiarity with this form of German script to read, let alone make sense of, the the entries.
