I am looking for information on Julius JOBB/JOB born Nov. 6, 1872
in the village of Kamenice, Moravia.
I have been told the JOBB'S are of Czech decent.
Maybe they are of Czech descent, but JOB(B), to me, sounds like
a German surname.
There are 12 Kamenice, but only 1 of them is in Moravia. :-) It
is located in former Politischer Bezirk and Gerichtsbezirk
Iglau, which later was called "Iglauer Sprachinsel" (one of the
"German language islands" within the Protektorat Böhmen und
Mähren). Already in Austrian times, Kamenice had the German name
of Kamenitz. This might indicate that there was German
The name of Kamenitz does not appear in the alphabetical index
of the 2nd. edition of Rudolf Hemmerle's "Heimat im Buch".
But this does not mean anything at all, because this book lists
only literature published "AFTER 1945", as its long subtitle
clearly states. Yet: who of us really reads the complete
subtitles?. Editor of "Heimat im Buch" is the Sudetendeutsches
Archiv in München. Anyway, you may ask them via e-mail:
When I prepared my "Bibliography of Kreis Luditz" for the
internet, I asked the Sudetendeutsches Archiv if they allowed me
to add also Hemmerle's index of places covered by this book
(which would even have helped to find more users). But I never
got the explicitly written authorization. So what ...
The VSFF (means "association of Sudeten German family
researchers") has genealogical consultants and research groups
(for all the regions covered by them), which offer their
regional family files and genealogical advices -- but to VSFF
members ONLY. Certain German laws for associations sponsered by
government do not allow the VSFF (and its consultants) to work
COMMERCIALLY for non-members. And as they use to be rather busy,
they mainly or only will serve members.
But some of them also lend a helping hand in other cases.
Perhaps you might want to try if the VSFF consultant for the
Iglau region tells you at least if there is any special
Heimatliteratur, from all past and present times (which may be
much more than in the Sudd. Archiv), or even if he knows of
certain JOB(B) families ...
Also it would be interesting to know which parish kept the vital
records of Kameitz, and if there are any parish books edited,
lately, by researchers of that region.
BTW, lists of parish books (not their contents!) may be found at
Goto the web page for these consultants / research groups, which
is partially in English:
and search the page for the word Iglau. You will find there the
current consultant's name, address etc.
