FRIEDMAN of Hlohovec #hungary


mehadrin@...
 

I have family origins in Hlohovec, and have visited there. The =
gravestones have been photographed by representatives of Avoseinu in =
Brooklyn NY and that could be a possible source. I should point out that =
they are group that does cemetery restoration rather than archival work. =
The registers of Hlohovec were not yet online when I checked last, but =
they do exist and will probably come online eventually.

Dear Genners,

I believe I had tried to ask for this information before, but I guess
it won't hurt to try again.
I am searching for any information about a family named FRIEDMANN who
was based in modern Hlohovec in Slovakia, a town that back then was
called Galgocz in Hungarian and Freistadt in German.
The family members I know of lived in the mid 19th century or the
second half of it. It was a religious family, and a few members were
supposedly Rabbis (although I don't know what position they held). Of
those I know the names R' Mordechai FRIEDMANN, R' Moshe FRIEDMANN, and
a R' Aharon FRIEDMANN (although his connection to the family is not
quite clear). Mordechai was the father of Moshe, so it seems.
One of the problems I stumbled upon while trying to search information
about this family, apart >from the quite common family name, is the
fact that I have some documents which contain only the Hebrew names,
on others only the secular names. The matching is not always clear,
and for those for which I don't have the secular names, it might be
harder to locate official records.
Anyway, I am sorry for the long scroll, but I would love to get any
piece of information, if any of you have ever heard about a FRIEDMANN
from Hlohovec. Other guidance would be appreciated as well.
Thank you very much

Amit,

Can we assume that you have already searched for FRIEDMANN >from =
Galgocz in the JewishGen Hungary database? Have you also searched the =
Hlohovec, Slovakia, burial records in the JOWBR database? What other =
sources have you consulted? Because of its location, I suspect that =
there was Jewish migration to Galgocz >from Moravia in the late 18th and =
19th centuries. Your FRIEDMANN family may, therefore, be in records in =
Czech archives. Contact the Austria-Czech SIG for information.

I also suggest that you research the history of the Jewish community =
in Galgocz, which dates back to the 16th century. Raphael Patai =
mentions Mordecai Deutsch (d. 1773) who became rabbi of Galgocz in 1740 =
after serving in Bohemia. He also mentions Rabbi Judah Loeb OPPENHEIMER =
who died in Galgocz in 1803 and also refers to a blood libel case >from =
1539, which he says is the first case of that type on record.

It is much easier to provide assistance if you can tell us what you =
know and what you are looking for.
