Bostaslav ? #general

Jerry Segal <j.segal@...>
 

My father's naturalization application is hard to read- states that he was
born in what looks like Boustaslav, Romania- or something like that. Does
this name sound familiar to anyone? Might be Botosani, but I can't tell for
sure. He left Romania in 1912-

Thanks

mountaineering school #hungary

Rakoff125
 

I have a photo of my cousin in which he writes he is going to mountaineering
school; his uniform is somewhat militaristic. The address is hard to read but
is something like Selychene. Does anyone know anything about this program or
place. Would it be considered part of the Austrian military? I can't tell
from the photo when it was taken but it is written in English sometime
between 1907 to 1920.

* deportations from Hungary #hungary

Tom Venetianer <tom.vene@...>
 

Recently there was an exchange of messages about deportations >from Hungary.
Meantime I was reading Prof. Randolph Braham's famous book (the Politics of
Genocide, the Holocaust in Hungary). Prof. Braham states that practically
all Jews deported >from Hungary were previously registered by the local
Jewish Councils (Zsido Tanacsok). My question is: does somebody knows if
these records survived and if so, where can they be examined?

thanks and regards

May I suggest that when posting a followup that the majority of the

edit out the extraneous material.

It took me several attempts before I was able to locate the actual text

Re: more names #belarus

Don't know if this will help Chaim, Tomer or others looking for name
equivalents, but for what it's worth, in our family the female Jewish
name "Baila" was Erzebet (Elizabeth) in Hungarian.

While I'm loathe to say that anyone's grandfather was mistaken, I'm afraid
that's the case. While there may be a German word Siegal (altho' if there is
I'm not familiar with it) this does _not_ mean that SIEGAL cannot be an
acronym for S'gan Levi. First, the initial vowel sound is not relevant.
Second, even if it were relevant vowels (and often consonents) changed all
the time as people moved >from one place to another. My g-g-gfather's name
was Segal/etc......yet my g-uncle was SIEG_E_L, one set of cousin's are
SIEG_A_L, and another are SEGAL.
It's generally pretty difficult to generalize about different spellings
having different meanings when the people who used/took the names rarely
wrote them and, when they did, it was never in English.

Hi all!

The German world Siegel doesn't mean sign, but seal. The choose of Siegel
as your ancestors surname could have something to do with their occupation.
Maybe someone was working with some kind of administration or similar work.
