Re: Aranyosapati records? #hungary

Kopocsapati and Bacsaranyos are not included in the JewishGen Town Finder because they were too small. The JewishGen Town Finder includes information for about 6,000 Jewish communities that had a substantial Jewish population before World War I. AranyosapÃ¥ti and Revaranyos are not listed because they didnâ??t exist in the 19th century. Aranyosapati is included in the JewishGen Gazetteer, which is a much larger database that includes the current place names of smaller places. In 1877, KopócsapÃ¥ti was in the Tisza district of Szabolcs megye and had a jewish population of 95, Bacsaranyos was in the same district and had a Jewish population of about 100.

Aranyosapati village is in Szabolcs-Szatmår-Bereg County , VåsårosnamÊnyi
district. In 1950 it was created >from the two villages of Kopócsapåti and
RÊvaranyos, which was Bacs-Arranyos. [ sources Wikipaedia and Mapire /
Third Military Survey (1869-1887)]
I do not find any of the town names in JewishGen Town Finder. However, when
searching the JewishGen Hungarian database for ?any field? with the town
names I find that they are referenced in records, typically referring to a
parent born there.

My g-grandmother Fani (Fraide) Klein is thus indicated as born in
Bacs-Aranyos in her children?s birth records. I would think there was a
Jewish community there. Is there a reason it would be omitted >from the Town
Finder database? Might there be records that could be available but have not
yet been included in the Hungarian database ?

Any information relating to the Jewish community in the village is
appreciated. Please contact me directly if you have information relating to
Fani or other Klein family there.
