Kosice, Slovakia: Important Update to KehilaLinks Page #hungary

Madeleine Isenberg

To all those interested in people who once lived in Kosice, Slovakia,
I am the creator and maintainer for the KehilaLinks for that site. As
the co-worker with Peter Absolon on reading the tombstones in Kosice's
cemetery, Peter made an accidental discovery while trying to check the
spelling of a name. As a result we are pleased to advise you of an
important addition to one of the KehilaLinks pages for Kosice,
specifically on:
http://kehilalinks.jewishgen.org/kosice/Kosice-Other.html. (Scroll
down to 11 May 2016.)

Researcher Veronika Gayer collected information on the societies and
organizations that existed in Kosice between the two world wars and
wrote her 25-page results in Hungarian. >from this paper, with her
kind permission, we can now also share the compilation of membership
data readable by non-Hungarian speakers and sorted alphabetically by
family last name. (For those who can read Hungarian, a link to her
paper can be accessed there.)

In addition, special thanks to Tom Venetianer, who 12 years ago
contributed a list of Hungarian Occupations
to JewishGen that enabled Peter to also insert the English version of
the professions.
