Dear people of the list,

Obviously, messages have been far and few the past several days. Now would
be a good oportunity to share with us the family names and ancestral towns
that you are researching. Even if you have posted this information at one
time, feel free to do so again.

Even though most of my time during a recent visit to Israel was taken up
with genealogy related matters, and visiting with H-siggers throughout
Israel, (apologies to those who live beyond the Green Line- I'm not that
brave!)I have yet to prepare a "trip" report. I still hope to do so, but it
may have to wait until after a follow-up visit there in a few months.
In the meantime, I will share specific items that I learned during that
trip and which may be helpful to others.

Dr. Yehoshua Buchler gave me a photocopied letterhead >from the Slovak
Genealogical-Heraldic Society at the Matica slovenska, headed by Dr. Milan
Sismis. They have a website - ; e-mail for Dr.
Sismis is There is a researcher there who I beleive
specializes in Slovak Jewish families. I only have a last name: Weinberger.
The institute's fax number is 421/842-33188 and the telephone is
421/842-31372. The mailing address is Nam. J.C. Hronskenho 1 / 036 52
Martin / Slovakia. Has anyone had experience with this institute?

Best wishes
