About Dan Berwin Brockman

I have been working on genealogy of my family for about 65 years. My German side is well documented thanks to my father's good record keeping and contact with my cousin in Germany over the past 150 years. My mother's side is less clearly recorded due to secrecy and poor literacy by her grandparents and other relatives who originated in Poland and the present day Czech Republic. The Bohemian Jewish side of her family is only partially recovered. Osek-Wossek is the town most associated with the Bohemian family. In Poland the town is Babimost=Bomst.

Current Foci:

Last few years have been focussed on the Jews of Rhodes Project here on Geni. Includes building new profiles and adding existing profiles to the several Rhodes projects. Primary is the Project for the Jews of Rhodes, followed by the Holocaust in Greece, the Holocaust Survivors, and related Jews of Zimbabwe and Jews of Izmir projects.

Sources for the Holocaust impact on Rhodes include the 1939 Italian Census, yad Vashem, USHMM and Arolsen. One additional census was completed shortly before World War II. It is available online but in Italian. Another census was completed after the war, also in Italian.

I also work on various aspects of US Naval history, battles and ships history, with large loss of life of sailors at sea. Battle of Midway and the Battle of the Coral Sea are two examples. More recent (2023) is the story of the USS Neosho, sunk in the Coral Sea Battle.
