1869 Census Help #hungary

bormanjl@...
 

Hello,
I would like to research the 1869 Hungarian Census for Zemplen Megye. Specifically, I need the towns of Nagycigand and Kiscigand, which later merged to become just Cigand. My G-G-Grandmother Leni KESZTENBAUM was born in Cigand around 1840. Where can I find the 1869 Census for this area? I tried the Family History Library Search Website and came up with only 'Church Records'. Any help would be appreciated. Thank you.

Moderator VK: The 1869 Census records for Kiscigand and Nagycigand can be found on FHL Films # 0722719 and 0722750 respectively. Researchers should be aware that the FHL Catalog does not list every place enumerated in each census. In order to find out which film includes the records for a specific location it is necessary to look for records under Hungary - Census or Slovakia - Census, or under the title: Nepszamlalas, 1869. You should also be able to find out whether the Census records for a particular county have been filmed by searching under Hungary, [name of county]- Census.

Kremer - Rosenfeld - Blum - Szatmar #hungary

Inacio Steinhardt <saba@...>
 

My late Mother, Hermina KREMER, was born in Satu Mare (Szatmar) in 1896. She
was the daughter of Ignatz Kremer, a tailor, and Sali ROSENFELD.

Her siblings were Josef Kremer (married to Rosa), Gyula Kremer (married to
Katy), Ana Kremer (married to Alexander ROSENFELD), Reghina Kremer (married
to Janos TODOR), Rosa Kremer (married to Josef BLUM), Sandor Kremer, Etel
Kremer and Gabor Kremer (married to Sarah).

I don't know anything about my grandparents, Ignatz Kremer and Sali
Rosenfeld, except that they both died before 1932, that Ignatz probably came
from Marmoros, and that Sali had relatives, probably siblings in Antwerp,
Belgium, in 1932.

As for my uncles and aunts, we have lost contact with them all, except
Regina Kremer-Todor, because her husband was not Jewish and she escaped the
Holocaust. Regina died in Satu Mare in 1965.

I would like very much to find people who eventually knew any of my
relatives or they descendants. I don't know if any of them escaped the
Holocaust, if they had children, if those for whom I don't have a spouse
name have married.

All information will be appreciated

JewishGen Discussion Group #JewishGen Searching: RICHMAN/REICHZELIGMAN; COHEN; MAGIDOWITZ(CH); KASSIMOFF(V) #general

Angie Elfassi
 

Hi,

I've rejoined this list I thought maybe someone might recognise my search
names:

REICHZELIGMAN >from Stakliskes, Trakai, Lithuania became RICHMAN when they
arrived in Leeds, UK. Actually there are various spellings of REICHZELIGMAN
as I have found on the Lithuanian Data Base:
REJKHELIGMAN or RAYKHZALIGMAN. My grandfather -Motl/Mordechai/Max -
arrived in England before 20thAugust 1896 because that's when he married my
grandmother who was -COHEN >from Sasy or Sakiai/Shaki or other variations,
Lithuania. Sarah was the daughter of Shmuel Itzkah COHEN and Channa
Peshel (surname unknown). She had 2 brothers: Harris and Maurice who also
moved to England. If anyone has information about COHEN from
Sakiai/Shaki I'd appreciate it.

MAGIDOVITCH or MAGIDOWITZ or other similar spellings >from Yurbakas or
Jurburkas, Lithuania. My grandmother Zelda/Jane married in Leeds in 1905
so she must have arrived not long before that. She was married to -
My grandfather - KASSIMOFF(V) >from Rezekne/ Resitza Latvia. Josef
Alexander, who was one of 9 children. Siblings: Hyman Michael; Louie;
Mary; Vittel; Morris;Annie; Wolfie and Rose. Interestingly enough, my
father always said that his father was >from Jurbarkas, Lithuania, however,
I recently spoke to 2 of my father's cousins (independently) and they were
both adamant that KASSIMOFF is >from Rezekne. I have 3thoughts on that:
either that when Josef was born they were in fact in Lithuania, or he
needed to feel that he was >from the same town as his wife, or he simply
forgot!

Any information, suggestions, greatfully accepted.

JewishGen Discussion Group #JewishGen Re: Origin of Ida, a woman's personal name. #general

Israel Zamir <iczamir@...>
 

Excuse me:
I remember a lot of IDA between jewish people in Argentine, mostly
descendentes >from jews >from East Europe.

Ida, and eventually also Aida, where the prefered name for Judith (today
Judith is "good fashion" or of "bonne ton" because it sounds "english",
for argentinian people and argentinian jews...).

But this Judith was also: (Or Ida, or Aida) Iehudit ( in hebrew )
Iehudis ( in Iyydish) Hadassa ( in hebrew: if I'm not wrong the hebrew
equivalent of persian Esther ).... transformed in iyddish Hu-(like "oo"
in English)-dess==Hoodess.

I had a tante-mume-czocza-aunt-tia that went >from Lodz to Buenos Aires,
from Buenos Aires to Rio de Janeiro. and then organized the inmigration of
her relatives in Lodz to South America, before WWII.

Her name was Iehudis,,, but all the familly called her: Hoodess...

This is also a bit >from the story about our "grine kouzines"... .

My excuses for my pour English. Yours!

<< I have never come across the name Idalia and had you

Your late mother-in-law may well be the only bearer of that name. Idalia is

> is, and it's listed by Beider under Yudes (Judith).

Michael,

Argument that you have never come across the name Idalia or that name
is not in Alexander Beider's dictionary, does not prvide the proof that
name was no adopted by Jewish people.

No, it does not provide proof that it was used here or there, but though
it may have been used by your gransmother or even mine, doesn't make it
into a "Jewish" name any more than Clementine or Clothilde (nor even Myron
and Sheldon, Ignatz or Isidore) are Jewish names just because some or even
many Jews used them...

Ida is a common name in many countries. Among Jews it is derived
predominantly >from forms of Yehudit/Judith; that is its Jewish source.
As a Jewish name it is not an abbreviation of Idaho, Ideal, Idalinka,
Idalina or Ideology. Yehudit/Judith is the only source for the name Ida as
a Jewish name.
