Rostock

Rostock, or the Hanseatic City of Rostock, is the largest city in the state of Mecklenburg-Western Pomerania (Mecklenburg-Vorpommern), northern Germany. The city stands on the estuary of the River Warnow into the Bay of Mecklenburg of the Baltic Sea. In 2017, the town had a population of about 210,000, making it the third largest city on the German Baltic Coast. It has been, and remains to be as one of the largest ports in Germany.


The purpose of this project is to collect together people who have resided in Rostock, or having influenced the history of the town. You are welcome to join the project - you should join and contribute by adding the people of you know. Down below the description of the project, reasons why you should join and contribute are provided.

History

In the 11th century Polabian Slavs founded a settlement at the Warnow river called Roztoc (*ras-tokŭ, Slavic for "fork of a river"); the name Rostock is derived from that designation.

Hanseatic city

In 1251, the city became a member of the Hanseatic League. In the 14th century it was a significant seaport town with some 12,000 inhabitants, and the largest city in Mecklenburg. Ships that cruised the Baltic Sea were often times built constructed in Rostock.

In 1419, the University of Rostock was founded, the oldest university in continental northern Europe and the Baltic Sea area.

Rostock was originally part of the Duchy of Mecklenburg-Schwerin which lasted from 1379 to 1815. From 1815 to 1918, it was part of the Grand Duchy of Mecklenburg-Schwerin. With the end of World War I and subsequent abolition of the German Empire, the state was renamed as the Free State of Mecklenburg-Schwerin. Since 1933, Rostock is a city from the state of Mecklenburg-Vorpommern.

Why join the regional projects?

Well, we don' even know - yet - what the future will bring. Once here is enough people of the regional project, only the imagination limits what the data can be used to do and illustrate. But when the regional projects become more common, we already know something. By now, Finland has been quite thoroughly mapped, people have been active with the projects, which actually do not require much. Or anything. Just joining in. It's not much to ask, is it?

Once you have done that, there's a bot that crawls Geni on regular basis. It looks for all sorts of aberrations, is able to point them out, even fix them. I can already put your ancestors on map provided that there are regional projects, typically first at the level of (country) state or county, and towards more specific places. Please take a look at the Finnish Our Common Ancestry project. Cool, huh?

You're most welcome to join, perhaps the second generation of knowledge and fun that Geni can offer.

Cidade Hanseática de Rostock

Rostock (também Rostoque), oficialmente a Cidade Hanseática de Rostock, é a maior cidade do Estado de Mecklemburgo-Pomerânia Ocidental, nordeste da Alemanha, e um dos maiores portos do país. A cidade localiza-se na desembocadura do rio Warnow e parte da cidade é banhada pelo mar Báltico.


Em 2017, sua população era de ca. 210.000 habitantes. Portanto, a terceira maior cidade na costa báltica da Alemanha.

O propósito deste projeto é reunir pessoas que tenham residido em Rostock, ou que tenham influenciado a história da cidade. Sinta-se à vontade para se juntar ao projeto - junte-se e contribua por meio da inclusão de pessoas conhecidas. Abaixo desta descrição do projeto, apresentamos as razões pelas quais você deve participar e contribuir.

História

No século XI, esvalos Polábios estabeleceram-se ao longo do rio Warnow e nomearem o local de Roztoc (*ras-tokŭ, do eslavo para "bifurcação do rio"); o nome Rostock deriva desta designação.

Cidade hanseática

No ano de 1251, a cidade tornou-se membro da Liga Hanseática. No século XIV, era um poderoso porto marítimo com 12.000 habitantes e a maior cidade de Mecklemburgo. Os navios que cruzavam o Mar Báltico eram construídos em Rostock.

No ano de 1419, a Universidade de Rostock foi fundada, a mais antiga universidade no nordeste continental da Europa e da região do Mar Báltico.

photos.geni.com/p13/59/21/27/11/534448540af2b763/rostock_um_1650_large.jpgA cidade nos anos de 1600.

Rostock era originalmente parte do Ducado de Mecklemburgo-Schwerin, que durou de 1379 a 1815. De 1815 a 1918, foi parte do Grão-Ducado de Mecklemburgo-Schwerin. Com o término da Primeira Guerra Mundial e subsequente abolição do Império Alemão, o estado foi renomeado como o Estado Livre de Mecklemburgo-Schwerin. Desde 1933, Rostock é uma cidade do estado de Mecklemburgo-Pomerânia Ocidental.

Por que participar dos projetos regionais?

Bem, nem sabemos - ainda - o que o futuro trará. Uma vez havendo pessoas suficientes neste projeto regional, apenas a imaginação será nosso limite para os dados e conteúdos obtidos. Todavia, assim que os projetos regionais vierem a ser mais frequentes, saberemos de antemão uma coisa. Por ora, a Finlândia já está relativamente bem mapeada. As pessoas têm sido ativas em projetos deste tipo, que, a bem da verdade, não demandam muito. Ou demandam nada. Apenas participar. Não é pedir muito, não é mesmo?

Feito isto, o bot que perambula pelo Geni regularmente a procura de toda sorte de aberrações, sendo capaz de apontá-las e, mesmo, corrigi-las possibilitará colocar os seus ancestrais no mapa, disponibilizado-os pelos projetos regionais, tipicamente primeiro a partir do nível de (condado) estado ou país, em direção a lugares específicos. Por favor, dê uma olhada no projeto Finlandês Our Common Ancestry. Legal, não?

Você é extremamente bem-vindo a se juntar conosco, quem sabe seja a segunda via de conhecimento e diversão que o Geni possa oferecer.

Rostock

Rostock, offiziell die Hansestadt Rostock, ist die größte Stadt im Bundesland Mecklenburg-Vorpommern. Im Jahr 2017 hatte sie ca. 210.000 Einwohner und ist damit die drittgrößte Stadt an der deutschen Ostseeküste. Die Stadt liegt an der Mündung des Warnow in die Mecklenburgische Bucht der Ostsee und ist einer der wichtigsten deutschen Häfen.


Der Zweck dieses Projekts ist es, Menschen zusammenzubringen, die in Rostock gelebt haben oder die Geschichte der Stadt beeinflust haben. Sie können sich gerne dem Projekt anschließen - Sie sollten sich anschließen und einen Beitrag leisten, indem Sie die Personen hinzufügen, die Sie kennen. Unten unter der Beschreibung des Projekts werden Gründe angegeben, warum Sie beitreten und einen Beitrag leisten sollten.

Geschichte

Im 11. Jahrhundert gründeten polabische Slawen eine Siedlung am Fluss Warnow namens Roztoc (* ras-tokŭ, slwaisch für „Gabel eines Flusses”); Der Name Rostock leitet sich von dieser Bezeichnung ab.

Hansestadt

1251 wurde die Stadt Mitglied der Hanse. Im 14. Jahrhundert war es eine mächtige Seehafenstadt mit 12.000 Einwohnern und die größte Stadt in Mecklenburg. In Rostock wurden Schiffe für die Ostsee gebaut.

1419 wurde die Universität Rostock gegründet, die älteste Universität in Kontinentaleuropa und im Ostseeraum.

photos.geni.com/p13/59/21/27/11/534448540af2b763/rostock_um_1650_large.jpgDie Stadt im 17. Jahrhundert.

Rostock war unsprünglich Teil des Herzogtums Mecklenburg-Schwerin, das von 1379 bis 1815 bestand. Von 1815 bis 1918 war es Teil des Großherzogtums Mecklenburg-Schwerin. Mit dem Ende des Ersten Weltkriegs und der anschließenden Abschaffung des Deutschen Reiches wurde der Staat in Freistaat Mecklenburg-Schwerin umbennant. Rostock ist seit 1933 eine Stadt aus dem Land Mecklenburg-Vorpommern.

Warum an regionalen Projekten teilnehmen?

Nun, wir wissen nocht nicht einmal, was die Zukunft bringen wird. Wenn es hier erstmal genügend Leute der regionalen Projekte gibt, kann nur noch die Vorstellungskraft Grenzen sezten für das, was die Daten uns zeigen können und wie wir sie nutzen können. Aber wenn die regionalen Projekten häufiger werden, wissen wir bereits etwas. Inzwischen wurde Finnland ziemlich gründlich kartiert, die Leute waren mit den Projekten aktiv, die eigentlich nicht viel erfordern. Einfach mitmachen. Es ist nicht zu viel verlangt, oder?

Sobald Sie das getan haben, gibt es einen Bot, der Geni regelmäßig crawlt. Er sucht nach allen möglichen Abweichungen, kann sie aufzeigen und sogar beheben. Ich kann Ihre Vorfahren bereits auf die Karte setzen, vorausgesetzt, es gibt regionale Projekte, normalerweise zuerst auf Bundes-, Landes-, oder Bezirksbene und in Richtung spezifischerer Orte. Bitte werfen Sie einen Blick auf das finnische Projekt. Schön, oder?

Sie sind herzlich eingeladen, sich der zweiten Generation von Wissen und Spaß anzuschließen die Geni bieten kann.

Rostock was originally part of the Duchy of Mecklenburg-Schwerin which lasted from 1379 to 1815. From 1815 to 1918, it was part of the Grand Duchy of Mecklenburg-Schwerin. With the end of World War I and subsequent abolition of the German Empire, the state was renamed as the Free State of Mecklenburg-Schwerin. Since 1933, Rostock is a city from the state of Mecklenburg-Vorpommern.

Why join the regional projects?

Well, we don' even know - yet - what the future will bring. Once here is enough people of the regional project, only the imagination limits what the data can be used to do and illustrate. But when the regional projects become more common, we already know something. By now, Finland has been quite thoroughly mapped, people have been active with the projects, which actually do not require much. Or anything. Just joining in. It's not much to ask, is it?

Once you have done that, there's a bot that crawls Geni on regular basis. It looks for all sorts of aberrations, is able to point them out, even fix them. I can already put your ancestors on map provided that there are regional projects, typically first at the level of (country) state or county, and towards more specific places. Please take a look at the Finnish Our Common Ancestry project. Cool, huh?

You're most welcome to join, perhaps the second generation of knowledge and fun that Geni can offer.

Rostock

Rostock, or the Hanseatic City of Rostock, is the largest city in the state of Mecklenburg-Western Pomerania (Mecklenburg-Vorpommern), northern Germany. The city stands on the estuary of the River Warnow into the Bay of Mecklenburg of the Baltic Sea. In 2017, the town had a population of about 210,000, making it the third largest city on the German Baltic Coast. It has been, and remains to be as one of the largest ports in Germany.


The purpose of this project is to collect together people who have resided in Rostock, or having influenced the history of the town. You are welcome to join the project - you should join and contribute by adding the people of you know. Down below the description of the project, reasons why you should join and contribute are provided.

History

In the 11th century Polabian Slavs founded a settlement at the Warnow river called Roztoc (*ras-tokŭ, Slavic for "fork of a river"); the name Rostock is derived from that designation.

Hanseatic city

In 1251, the city became a member of the Hanseatic League. In the 14th century it was a significant seaport town with some 12,000 inhabitants, and the largest city in Mecklenburg. Ships that cruised the Baltic Sea were often times built constructed in Rostock.

In 1419, the University of Rostock was founded, the oldest university in continental northern Europe and the Baltic Sea area.
