Dear Denise Larson,
Your notes in October and yesterday prompted me to share my experiences
with searching for records on my maternal grandmother and her family on
Murska Sobota in Slovenia. The town was also called Muraszombat in
Hungarian, and Olsnitz in German. In the FHL microfilm collections I found
the birth records of my grandmother and her 8 siblings, including the early
20th century "hungarisation" annotations of all the males (Neuman changed
to Timar), as well as birth, marriage and death data on THEIR parents and
grandparents. Among other things, I thus discovered that my gggf Simon
Neuman was born in Murska Sobota around 1814, married Netl Rabenstein in
1839, and died there at age 70. >from so much distance in time and space,
that was an almost unreal, very moving experience.
In case it's useful to you or someone else, the microfilm numbers in the
FHL collection for Murska Sobota are:
Jewish records: #642935
Civil records 1868-1918: #1793123
Send me direct e-mail if anyone needs to know what data are contained on
the individual films.
