Re: Post 1895 Records #hungary

Michele Sankar <sankosy@...>
 

Hi -

If I understand correctly, the post-1895 records are available to us. If that is so, is it
only the ones prior to 100 years ago (i.e. to 1901)? Is that an FHC "rule" or a Hungarian
archive "rule"? Do we have to know the region in which an event took place? Would the
Hungarian National Archives have this info?

I would like to find out about a marriage that took place in approximately 1912, give or
take 1 year. Besides the names of the bride and groom and that the wedding was in Hungary,
I know nothing else about the city or anything else. Is it worth writing to the archives
for this, or must I wait another 11 years?!

Many thanks.

Sincerely,
Michele Sankar

1) My mother's dad was born Samuel Laufer at Buzinka, near Kosice, Slovakia,
in March 1859. His parents were Moritz Laufer and Johanna Friedema. He had,
at least, one brother (Dr. Shandor Laufer, who died at Timisoara, Romania,
June 1933), an unmarried sister, Fanny Laufer, of Kosice (buried in Jewish
cemetary at Kosice), and a married sister, Hermina Laufer Waldman of Kosice
(Mrs. Adolf Waldman)(she died 3/4 August 1933; she and her husband also
buried in Jewish cemetary at Kosice). 2) My mother's dad came to USA 1874;
naturalized 1880, taking surname of Runner; married 1883 at Orwell, Ohio;
had two surviving daughters (my mother, the younger); he died at Cleveland,
Ohio, November 1937. 3) In his will, he left bequests to a nephew, Lajos
Laufer, of Kosice; to a neice, Mrs. Dr. Josef Vajda of Rasingasse, # 4,
Kosice; and to a neice, Malvina Ziltzer, Vamhaz korut # 6, Budapest. 3) Do
you genners know anything about these several families - Laufer, Vajda,
Waldman - in the area of Kosice, Slovakia? Or of Ziltzer family in
Budapest? 4) I am new to this mailing list, but find it fascinating! 5)

hebrew - scanning into computer via OCR - software question #general

Marty Meyers <marty@...>
 

Hello everyone,

I had an opportunity to see a Yizkor book today for the first time and
saw the immense problems most of us would have with translation.

For english text, I can scan a document into my computer and have an OCR
(optical character recognition) program convert it into, for example a
Microsoft Word document. I can then scan the document for a specific word
or phrase.

Does such a facility/software program exist for Hebrew?
If so, is it reliable?

I imagine using this to scan Hebrew text into the computer, converting it
via OCR, and searching for a family name.

Wouldn't this be a wonderful program to have, if it does not yet exist?

Zlata is actually Slavic/polish, same root as the coin (zlaty). A Yiddish
equivalent would be "Goldie."
