Friedrich Alefeld[edit]

Thanks for the fix, I see it is the district where he was born. Are you able to translate this book title? I get The Bee, is this correct?

  • Die Bienen-Flora Deutschlands und der Schweiz. Neuwied, Heuser, 1863.

Cygnis insignis 16:08, 13 October 2007 (UTC)

Hello Cygnis, yes, you got that right. The title says, The Bee-Flora in Germany and Switzerland - the book is about all the plants in D and CH which are pollinated by Honey Bees. And thanks for setting up the article! --Joachim Weckermann 08:15, 14 October 2007 (UTC)
Ah! As pollinator, that had me baffled. A mere stub, but thanks anyway. I assume you saw the reciprocal link at de: I will have to find a little more about him, he seems an interesting fellow. He is given as the author of Alyogyne hakeifolia, an Australian plant formerly described as a Hibiscus. The taxonomic history is a bit odd. I am trying to write an article around an image by one of the greatest botanical artists, Ferdinand Bauer. By the way, I am also interested in Carl von Hügel, another visitor to my 'country' (Southwest Australia). I would be grateful for any information, if you happen to see any links to him. Thanks Joachim - best regards. Cygnis insignis 08:52, 14 October 2007 (UTC)

P.S. The Hügel article is not my doing. I would have named it as above. Do you agree? Cygnis insignis 10:59, 14 October 2007 (UTC)

You're welcome. I'm not too deep into botanics, I just stumbled over Alefeld because he lived (and died) in Ober-Ramstadt, the place I live in. About v. Hügel: the article is more elaborated than the de.article, so I couldn´t find out too much news. His father Johann Aloys Josef is also interesting - he was Konkommissar for the Kaiser Franz II. in Nuremberg when sitting with the The Reichstag in the Holy Roman Empire. He fled the Imperial Regalia from Nuremberg to Vienna after Franz II. had put them down in 1806. In the v. Hügel article :Return to Europe I found Der stille Ocean und die spanischen Besitzungen im ostindischen Archipel (loosely translatable as The quiet ocean and the Spanish possessions in the East Indian archipelago). "Der stille Ocean" in German stands for Pacific Ocean - is it the same in English? And the "ostindischen Archipel" in my understanding is more the Malay Archipelago. Just tiny differences, like between "East India" or "East Indies". Too hard for my User en-3 ;) Furthermore, I'm sorry that I can't discuss the naming conventions of articles like Carl von Hügel in the en.wikipedia. There are some differences to the de.wikipedia, which prefers the name of the person in his or her language (John F. Kennedy instead of Johannes F. Kennedy) About Ferdinand Bauer: I didn´t find anything in de.wikipedia, which is a pity. As I said, I'm not too deep in botanics. But I fell over this (in German), which says that this Vienna horticultural society thing was founded by v. Hügel and Joseph Freiherr v. Jaquin in 1827. A connection to Bauer, who was educatd by Nikolaus von Jacquin? Maybe you know more. Best regards, --Joachim Weckermann 12:01, 14 October 2007 (UTC)
Wow, that is really helpful – thanks! Charles was the anglicised name he adopted, I would also use the original name per de.wikis policy. I will check what en.wiki's policy is. Your english is as advanced as mine, a native speaker, but if you have a query on dialect I would be happy to help. English always says Pacific, but "Der stille Ocean" is a beautiful phrase. Jaquin's name comes up in the little I have found, I will have to find out more on too. So much to know! 2 million articles here would barely scratch the surface. Let me know your interests and I will return the favor with some curious facts. Best regards, Cygnis insignis 12:52, 14 October 2007 (UTC)
Glad to help you. About the Jacquin family: there's a son of Nikolas, Joseph Franz von Jacquin, who inherited his father’s position as professor. In the de.wikipedia, there's this picture of two tiny monuments (Gedenktafel) for father and son in the Vienna botanical gardens. The son Joseph obviously is the co-founder (with v. Hügel) of the Vienna horticultural society. It´s fun to scratch the surface... Best regards, --Joachim Weckermann 14:15, 14 October 2007 (UTC)
Cheers again, I will add this to my notes and read the de.wiki articles - and add them here too. We tend to overlook some european stuff, IMHO. I didn't ask about Alois Auer, but that is where I got the info for two articles here. Nice to meet you, Cygnis insignis 14:22, 14 October 2007 (UTC)
Great! I also found a painting by Vienna´s Johann Knapp Tribute to Jacquin in the de.wikipedia. Look at that wonderful Cockatoo. Thanks for meeting you, --Joachim Weckermann 14:36, 14 October 2007 (UTC)
As Alice in Wonderland said, curiouser and curiouser, which is untranslatable. Sulphur Crested Cockatoo I instantly recognise, I will have a closer look at the plants. Cygnis insignis 14:52, 14 October 2007 (UTC)

concentration camp[edit]

sorry, your refs pls ? in farge, in blumenthal direct, in bremen city, at deschimag, finndorf missler neuenland ... and ... and ... serveral more

don't delete, because "it is somply wrong" give me referneces, please -- Sebastian scha. (talk) 07:47, 12 May 2008 (UTC)

PS: your wikilink is to a disamb Blumenthal in S-H and there was no camp -- Sebastian scha. (talk) 08:20, 12 May 2008 (UTC)

PS2: the memorial site Neuengamme is at the moment offline, but the shelter Vallentin you mean is anaother subcamp ! -- Sebastian scha. (talk) 08:35, 12 May 2008 (UTC)

Hi Sebastian ,
sorry that I was mislead. The only relevant subcamp I thought of was the U-Boot-Bunker Valentin in Blumenthal (Rekum, to be precise), which was not only a shelter, but a building for site submarines, too. The subcamp you´ve mentioned existed as one of approx. 100 for Neuengamme, and being one of 1634 total, all figures according to the sources you´ve mentioned. So, my editing remark "It´s simply wrong" was wrong. But the reason why I was wrong is still there: the Vegesack subcamp was not at all as important as the Bunker camp was. For that reason, it doesn´t belong in the article. I should have put that on the talk page rather than reverting, that´s right, and has happened now. Greetings, --Joachim Weckermann (talk) 09:16, 12 May 2008 (UTC)
Hi Joachim, I thought I got my first edit war ;-) But you are also right, several inmates of Vegesack were forced to work in the U-Boot-bunker. But the problem with the subcamps of Neuengamme are, there are several with e.g. only 10 (ten) inmates. And it is very hard to find informations, and because the origninal Neuengamme archive were burned to destroy the evidence. If there are more informations or it is really the same subcamp, I will expand it or I will delete it immediately. If we can let it there at the moment ? -- Sebastian scha. (talk) 09:43, 12 May 2008 (UTC)
PS Frohe Pfingsten ;-) Sebastian scha. (talk) 09:52, 12 May 2008 (UTC)
Hi Sebastian,
of course we can leave it in the article until the discussion on the talk page is over. Hopefully, we´ll have some more opinions on the item. I´ll take a look on it in a while and contact you if there´s any doubt left. And trust me, an edit war starts in a different way. I´ve seen enough of that in the German wiki ;-) Frohe Pfingsten to you, Joachim Weckermann (talk) 10:03, 12 May 2008 (UTC)

I noticed this edit and was wondering why you made it Fasach Nua (talk) 11:54, 18 August 2008 (UTC)
