Is surname RETZBACH Jewish #general

J Schamroth <scham@...>
 

I have a marriage registration >from St. Louis dated 1861 between Anna
SCHAMROTH and John Anthony RETZBACH. Is anyone familiar with the RETZBACH
surname? Is it Jewish?

Also, I am aware that many immigrants >from Germany settled in St. Louis
during this period. Is the name RETZBACH Germanic in origin?

Many Thanks

JewishGen Strikes Again! #general

Kitnick1@...
 

On 18 Oct 1999 I posted a query seeking the whereabouts of the
descendants of Ruth [LYON] KENTER who lived in Urbana, Illinois
c. 1938. The next day.... I received a reply >from Elaine LYON
of DeWitt, NY.... who put me in touchwith Dan LYON of Illinois...
who is the nephew of the late Ruth [LYON] KENTER...I was able to put
Dan together with my ex-father-in-law...
Bernard ECHT who was Ruth's boyfriend over sixty years ago...
Mr. ECHT satisifed his long time curiosity regarding the fate of his
former friend... and was able to send Dan LYON pictures of his late
aunt and one of his grandmother c. 1938.... once again... the power
of JewishGen and the Internet was realized...

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
Tom

I can see the claim for cobber (chaver) but what would be the origin

May I suggest that when posting a followup that the majority of the
posting be the reply? Leave enough of the original for context, but
edit out the extraneous material.

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