The origin mystery #ukraine

JRothen318@...
 

Are others experiencing my general sense that when Jews arrived in this
country (my family about 1880) they tended not to ever talk about their town
of origin or what the old country was like to their children - let alone
their children's children. No one in our family ever knew our town of origin
until I found it after some research about a month ago - it was a complete
mystery to all of us (and there are plenty of us).

Hello,

I attempted to reply to Elias in Russia but his mail address was rejected.
If you are out there Elias, please respond with a better e-mail address.

This is an AOL problem; I have been having the same difficulty
communicating with Elias. As a result, I send my messages to
him via a friend. His messages, on the other hand, get through
to me without problems. I suggest Marilyn and others do the same.

Because, over the years others have had similar difficulties with
overseas providers rejecting mail >from AOL, I would like to quote

"We have not closed the issue and currently have a ticket open

I will post a message if/when the problem is resolved.

Searching RENE ZILAHI , Budapest 1950 #hungary

Avraham Steiner <avi6@...>
 

Dear H-sig members,

An old postcard , sent in 1950, indicate that my Grandfather 's cousin RENE
ZILAHI lived in Andraschi Street , Budapest.

RENE is the daughter of HEINRICH and MARIA ZIPSER.

Could you advise me how to trace her descendants ?

Thanks in advance

mod.- The street may also be spelled Andrassy Utca (street)named in honor
of Grof (Count)Andrassy. Many upscale stores, restaurants, and residences
as well as the main Opera house, line this street.


Web listing of Jewish Community Centers in Hungary #hungary

Ed Zwieback <ezwiebac@...>
 

In early 1998, I found a very interesting web site listing all the Jewish
Communities in Hungary, with current contacts including names , addresses,
and telephones. This was a Hungarian web site.
I cannot find the site now. The partial printout that I have shows
http://195.56.24.1/Zsido/guide_dan.htm . I can't open that web page nor
the "home" page.

Maybe I missed it in the H-SIG web site links or maybe it's no longer
available?
I would like to know how to reach that listing.

Lomza, Ruscian, and Rozan #poland

Mark_J._Schwartz@...
 

I am new to the mailing list and have a quick question. My
great-grandmother's brother lists Lomza as his birthplace on his
naturalization papers, and his last residence prior to emigration as
"Ruscian, Russia". On my great-grandmother's death certificate it
lists "Rozan, Russia" as her birthplace. Is it possible that Ruscian
and Rozan are the same places? If they are the same, where is in
this in relation to Lomza. Thanks

Re: Help on Polish Name #poland

garymaher@...
 

In my family, men with the English name Charles have the Hebrew name
Yehezkel (hard "h"), which, in Polish, is Chackiel (pronounced
"Hots-keel", again with a hard "h").

Chacek for short! ;-)

Hope this is helpful!
