Surname TOTTI, Hungarian "nobleman?" #romania

HeyJudy123@...
 

Is any Genner researching the TOTTI family, or in possession of any
information about it?

I checked the search engine "Google," and there only were three hits--only
one of which remained active.

The JGFF shows a number of people researching the TOTH family of, yes,
Hungary, converting TOTTI to TOTH by using the Daitch-Mokotoff sound-alike search
engine.

The legend is that the TOTTI family were Hungarian nobility, c. 1850.

Discovery of letter trove - help needed with Translation #austria-czech

Steven Emanuel <steven.emanuel@...>
 

Dear Fellow Members

My Mother died just 10 days ago aged 96 and our last direct link with one
period in our history. Yesterday I spent much of the day sorting through her
effects and when opening a bundle of Greeting Cards >from Mum & Dad's 25th
Wedding Anniversary I discovered tucked behind a further bundle; this
comprised all the greetings both for their Wedding in Munich in 1936 and the
birth of my sister Ruth there in 1938 - just before they fled. Telegrams,
letters, cards, even florists cards - all in perfect condition, most in
original envelopes! What an unimagined hoard - I can see names of Aunts,
Uncles, Cousins, Grandmother etc.

I would dearly love to be able to read these but regrettably I speak no
German; also the handwriting is of that period - I always had difficulty in
reading Mum's letters to me at school! The task would be considerable as
there are some 70 plus pieces. If anyone can help me, or point me to someone
who might I would be most grateful.

Re: Nickname Question #jewishgen

Diane Jacobs <thegenie@...>
 

Yes, records are definitely a problem and if you have a common name you
could easily miss a correct record because names are entered incorrectly
and also ages, etc. I have two examples that may help others:

l. Birth Certificate: 1905 in Manhattan - parent's names are actually that
of the brother-in-law of the mother and her sister. Because the last names
are uncommon and I knew the child's name I was able to determine I had the
right person.

2. Death Certificate: around 1922 NYC - age of deceased 20 years off the
correct age. Because the last name is so uncommon, I knew I had the right
person and by name of informant.

Sometimes luck and using your grey matter to deduce incorrect records is
very important.

Dear Lisa:

What you have forgotten to account for is that the person who filled out the
death certificate may not have given the proper info as they did not know it
correctly. For instance, when my great grandfather died, his son-in-law,
not his daughter, gave the info to the clerk. Due perhaps to the grief of
the moment or lack of knowledge of English, his gave the names of his
parents when asked for those of my great grandfather!!!!

In another example, a relative did not understand English well enough to
fill out the forms and the clerk did it. Therefore, what resulted is very
much different >from what should have been in the record.

Further, when there may be multiple wives in a family, very often the person

filling out the form may not have known about the other wife or wives in the

family. It is possible then that name of the one he/she was familiar with
will be given. It is common when a wife dies early and the children are
infants or toddlers and another one takes her place that the children may
not know about their own mother. Or, the husband may marry the wife's
sister which further complicates things.

In order to sort out your inconsistency for the family names, you should
obtain your step-great aunt's birth and marriage records and see what they
say and compare. Hopefully, at least, her parents would have given the info

on her birth record and she would have given it on her marriage record.

BLASBALG, LICHTENSTEIN in Israel #jewishgen

Cheryl <csofer@...>
 

My sister-in-law will be visiting Israel next week. She has asked me
to try and locate family so that she can contact, and hopefully meet
them while she is there.

We know that Abraham and Eala BLASBALG lived in Ashkelon as of 1981.
They had a son, Jacob BLASBALG, married to Hagar MANOR. Jacob and
Hagar had at least one child born about 1980.

Abraham and Eala's daughter Rachel married Gedaliahu HECHT. They had
two daughters: Liat b. 1974 and Michel b. 1977. There was at least
one additional child born about 1980.

Other cousins lived in Ramat Aviv. They were David and Batsheva
LICHTENSTEIN. They had one son.

If anyone has any information on any of the above families I would
appreciate hearing >from them as soon as possible.

Thanks in advance.

Many thanks to those who replied to my query.
Though I have not gained a town name, I do appreciate
the volunteer spirit of JGeners.

Q: Do these few Cyrillic printed words give any hint of a location:
city, town?
