An index of appropximately 2.9 million cards to pedigrees recorded by the EWZ (Einwanderungszentralstelle) (Immigration Control Center) of German immigrants returning from Russia, Latvia, Estonia, Yugoslavia, Ukraine, Bulgaria, and France. E (Einwanderung) or emigration cards were filled out for every immigrant 15 and above and G (Gesundheit) or health cards for those over age 6. The cards list name, place and date of birth, religion, marital status, education, profession, professional training, citizenship, and all relatives in the same group of immigrants. The cards are arranged in alphagbetical order based on name pronunciation rather than spelling. The collection is known as EWZ57. It serves as an index to the Pedigrees EWZ58 (Stammblätter). Use the case number from the card to locate the pedigree (see Stammblätter, 1939-1945 / Deutschland. Einwanderzentralstelle), which are filed in case number order.

The term "Russia" in the subject heading refers to the locality designation in the historical Russian Empire or Soviet Union.

About this record

This screen shows the complete catalog entry of the title you selected.

The Film/Digital Notes contain a description of the microfilm or microfiche numbers. Some family history centers and libraries maintain collections of previously loaned microfilms or microfiche. A camera icon indicates items that are digitally available online.

Generally, catalog entries are written in the same language as the original record they describe.

Reasons why microfilms may not yet be available digitally on FamilySearch.org include:

  • The microfilm may be scheduled for future scanning.
  • The microfilm may have been scanned, but have a contractual, data privacy, or other restriction preventing access. FamilySearch makes every effort to enable access dependent on decisions of record custodians and applicable laws.
