Cause of Death-Elmebaj #hungary

Katz, Itzik <Itzik.Katz@...>
 

Dear Siggers,

On two of my grandfather's sibling death-records the cause of death is
specified as "Elmebaj" which literally translates to psychosis.

I find it very difficult to accept psychosis as a cause of death unless the
persons in question committed suicide.

Do you know of another possible translation to this cause of death or any
other explanation why would this be written as a cause of death? Can this
mean "stroke" instead of psychosis?

More information on Traveling Menorah/Chanukkiah found in G'dansk, Poland #general

Thank you to everyone who has looked at my Viewmate files anf offered
information and help. I would like to give you a bit more information. The
file that shows the Hebrew Inscription looks gold, but that is just >from a
combination of the oil drippings as oil was used instead of candles and the
flash >from the camera; the Chanukkiah is silver in color. The answer to
where the shammash can be found is; Look closely at the open box with the
Channukia arms swung out and if you look at the opened "top" of the box, you
will see a small half moon shaped receptacle which we believe was to hold
the shammash oil. I keep holding the Hanukkiah and waiting for it to tell me
it's story. It is a fascinating challenge. Please enjoy it with me while
you look at the Viewmate files listed below. I have received enough
translations for the Hebrew which basically says "To Light The Chanukkah
Candles" There is an error in the Hebrew, which might indicate that the
silversmith was not Jewish, but commissioned to make the box for a Jew who
traveled a lot. I look forward to hearing >from you re:who made the box and
where it was made. I will let the group know if I found out the backround.
Thanks again.

Dear FrenchSIGgers,

Most of you have had not problems with the new JewishGen system, which
requires a JGID number. A majority of you already had an ID as a result
of posting family names and towns to the JewishGen Family Finder. Many
more of you who have received the two email notices >from JewishGen have
indeed reregistered, as requested, and now have your numbers.

However, there are a few members whose email has been returned as
undeliverable, and so they have now been dropped >from the FrenchSIG
List. Some may now be using other addresses, and so we are listing the
returned addresses below. Unfortunately, the names of these individuals
was not saved, only the email addresses. Perhaps some among you will
recognize a closed address, or will recognize who the user was. If so,
we would greatly appreciate your sending this information to us, and
hopefully we will be able to reinstate them!

As many of you are aware, the "behind the scenes" team has been working
tirelessly (and endlessly) to implement our Central User Registration
Environment (CURE) and fine-tuning all the elements in this huge project.
CURE will enable us to better manage all our back office systems and ensure
integration of all JewishGen programs and projects into one central system.

Would you believe that we are fast approaching the 100,000 mark in user
registrations to JewishGen? An awesome number for a community that started
with slightly more than 100 people and one computer just 18 short years ago!
Now, to enable us to meet the user demand we are running 10 servers in a 24/7
secure co-location facility. It truly boggles the mind!

As busy as we have been behind the scenes, I wanted to take a moment to thank
all the many hundreds of our world wide volunteers who have contributed so
greatly to making JewishGen a vital community and recognized leader in the
field of Jewish genealogy.

We applaud their efforts and their dedication and commitment to this
organization. To those who have blessed us with their financial support
over the years, please know we are ever so grateful! We could not have gotten
where we are today without you.

My personal thanks go out to all the JewishGen Vice Presidents, the SIG
Leaders and the JewishGen Board for their significant contributions,
commitment and dedication to the missions and goals of this organization.
With your help we have achieved yet another milestone in our development. We
look forward to using our new tools to create the building blocks for an even
greater and more efficient JewishGen in the months and years to come.
