Bruno Bombera

Post by Cawbom »

Hallo zusammen,
Ich brauche Hilfe, mein Name ist Cory Bombera und ich schaue mir meinen Stammbaum an. Ich lebe zurzeit in England und habe sehr wenig Wissen über mein Erbe. Mein Opa wurde 1923 in Berlin geboren ... vielleicht in Lichtenberg? aber ich habe keine Beweise oder Dokumente oder irgendetwas diesbezüglich. Aus den kleinen Geschichten, die er uns erzählte, verstehen wir, dass er einen Bruder hatte, der starb, nachdem er von einer Straßenbahn angefahren wurde, einen Bruder Franz, der in Zlotow in Polen lebte, eine Schwester-Cecylia? lebte in Deutschland und eine andere Schwester, die er sich nicht an ihren Namen erinnern konnte ... aber von seiner Beschreibung könnte sie möglicherweise hatte Down-Syndrom und wurde institutionalisiert .. und wurde durch Brief im zweiten Weltkrieg berichtet, an Lungenentzündung gestorben zu sein. Brunos Vater hieß Vinzent und seine Mutter Zophia. Das sind alle Informationen, die ich habe ... aber ich würde es lieben, meine Wurzeln zu entdecken, wenn ich im Dezember nach Deutschland reise, damit ich ihre Schritte gehen kann.
Ich nehme an, dass ich frage, ob jemand mir helfen könnte, irgendwelche Aufzeichnungen zu finden ... Geburt, Tod usw .. oder mich wenigstens in eine Richtung zeigen, z. Nützliche Webseiten, die helfen könnten .. Bombera ist eher obskur und so Vorfahren etc ... vor allem von einer britischen Basis bringt mir kein Glück.
hoffe, dass mir jemand auf meiner Suche helfen kann.
mit freundlichen Grüßen
Cory

p.s. Entschuldigung, wenn mein Deutsch ist sehr schlecht .. es ist von Google Translate, so hoffe, es ist in Ordnung zu entziffern.

Hi

Maybe you can find BMD records for Berlin on ancestry or archion website.
I think records from the registry offices of Berlin are online on ancestry.de
and Lutheran church records of Berlin on archion. But if they came from
Poland they were rather Roman catholics than Lutherans.

There are address directories of Berlin online on this website:
https://digital.zlb.de/viewer/cms/82/

There are some newspapers of Berlin and other places online:
http://zefys.staatsbibliothek-berlin.de/list/

The sister with Down Syndrom (or another handicap) maybe was a victim of
the so called Euthanasie-Project, where people with handicap were murdered.
Do you know which place the message of her death came from?

Regards
Svenja

Hi Svenja,

Thanks for that I have looked but there doesn't appear to be any records with his name...

And with regards to his sister... unfortunately all he said was that they received a letter to say she had died from pneumonia that was all.. and unfortunately also he could no longer remember her name when he decided to tell us some of his stories.

His father and mother were polish, so my next step is to perhaps explore the Polish records.. but even his passport stated born in Berlin so not sure what i might find elsewhere.

Would anybody know if there is a list of those killed in the T-4 Program? of my little understanding the Nazi's destroyed most of the evidence and files, however for those that received a letter.. there would have been a record..

"Many parents were unaware of the fate of their children, instead being told that they were being sent for improved care. After a period of time parents were told their children had died of pneumonia and their bodies cremated to stop the spread of disease."

Vincent Bombera was born in Nakel, Bromberg, Posen as says his entry in the WWI Casuality lists (Marine Verlustliste Nr 122).
http://des.genealogy.net/search/show/4407255

There is also an Anton Bombera mentionned, he was part of the Grenadier Regiment Nr. 3, Königsberg, II Bataillon, 8. Kompanie.
http://des.genealogy.net/search/show/847183

Someone in the other Forum gave you some links for the BMD records of Naklo in Posen, did you find some Bombera entries there?


I have just found this people buried on the comunal cemetery in Zlotow, Bracholin, Wielkopolskie, Poland:

The remaining records of victims of the T4 program are hold in the Bundesarchiv in Berlin-Lichterfelde

From my rootsforum post.. Sorry didnt realise it may have been more detailed..

Hi all,

I am currently in the process of doing my family tree with the hopes of finding more information about my great grandfathers.

Few questions to ask with some possible pointers if you would all be so kind...

It's highly fascinating for me as Arthur George Pope 8200 fought and died in WW1 for the British army and my other great grandfather fought and was wounded in WW1 for the German army. I have relatives on both sides of the war which I would love to know more about.

1) military information for both? Best places to look? I have found snippets on AG Pope but have nothing for Vinzent (Vincent Bombera) where could I find things about him? Not being fluent in German does not help..

2) how do I find out more about Bombera’s in Germany? It's a very rare name with no clear origin. Vinzent was born in Nakel? Which I think is now Poland but was Prussia? My grandad Bruno was born in Berlin and said his grandmother had a pub there? But have no idea of a name or maiden name or anything... of real interest to me would be my grandads siblings. He was one of 5 but didn't let a lot of information go to us. His oldest sibling may have died after being hit by a tram? His brother moved to poland, His sister stayed in Germany and his youngest sister (had a funny face which we believe to be down syndrome) and was reported to have died from pneumonia... a victim of experimentation perhaps?? So many questions regarding that side so any German expertise would be amazing even if it was just to put names to them.

Any help would be greatly appreciated

Cory

I did have a look and used the search function which resulted 0 results..

but it was a rather confusing layout so not sure if i was searching in the correct places.

Hi

As I said before your first step should be to search for the birth record of Bruno Bombera in Berlin.
There should be mentionned more information about his parents, so we could see if the
Vincent Bombera from Nakel, Bromberg in the WWI casuality lists is the same person.

If the birth record is online, you should find it on ancestry or archion, if not you have
to write to the Standesamt in Berlin, but you need to know which Standesamt.

Unfortunately I can't help you with this, because I'm not a member of ancestry or archion (you have to pay there).
But if no one in this Forum can help you with this, I can ask in a German Forum, there are people who can help you.

In the British Forum they gave you two or three links for churchbooks of Posen, did you look at all this links?
I did only look at the Poznan project, because I'm not familiar with the other websites / online archives.
But I think also for this I can ask in the German Forum, there are people who are familiar with this archives.

As the Vincent Bombera in the WWI casuality lists was in the Marine (Navy) its difficult to find some documents.
Unfortunately there is not mentionned his unit or the ship he was on, but he was an Oberheizer der Reserve.

As I said before, the remaining records of victims of the T4 program are hold in the
Bundesarchiv in Berlin-Lichterfelde: Bestand R 179 („Kanzlei des Führers, Hauptamt IIb").

I have searched for Bruno Bombera in Berlin with no luck.. I have looked on Ancestry but also no luck.. but then I am on the UK version so not sure whether it may be different in Germany? I asked a distant cousin that lives in Poland with regards to information and she told me of the graves in Zlotow and that all she knew was Bruno and Franz were born in Lichtenberg so would you know what standesamt that would be?

So if anyone does know of any birth record of Bruno Bombera that would be incredibly useful? his date of birth was 09/09/1923 if that helps?

I did also look in all the church books of posen, again using the search functions returned nothing to note, and that was trying in the various different sections but again whether or not i was looking in the right areas im not 100% sure.


"As the Vincent Bombera in the WWI casuality lists was in the Marine (Navy) its difficult to find some documents.
Unfortunately there is not mentionned his unit or the ship he was on, but he was an Oberheizer der Reserve." ok thank you this incredibly useful.

"As I said before, the remaining records of victims of the T4 program are hold in the
Bundesarchiv in Berlin-Lichterfelde: Bestand R 179 („Kanzlei des Führers, Hauptamt IIb")" I will try to get in contact to see what i can find out.. although chances i would imagine are slim without even knowing the name of my grandads sister...

Thank You
Cory
