    Location of records of US Consulate in Stuttgart, 1938-1942

    Leo Hiemeer Newbie

      I'm looking for records of Charlotte Margarete Eckart nee Schwarz born 04-26-1904 in Augsburg. She was Jewish and wanted to immigrate to the US. She had 26,000 as waiting number. Can anybody answer my question?

          Dear Mr. Hiemeer,

           

          Thank you for posting your request on History Hub!

           

          We searched the Records of the Foreign Service Posts of the Department of State (Record Group 84) but were unable to locate consulate records in Stuttgart for that time period. Unfortunately when the consulate closed, the staff probably burned the records for security purposes.

           

          We also searched the Name Index for the State Department Central Files (RG 59) but were unable to locate a card for Charlotte Margarete Eckart or Charlotte Margarete Schwarz.

           

          We hope this information is helpful.
