Re: small Hungarian town #hungary

the radix 1913 gazetteer <http://www.radixindex.com/cgi-bin/hn1913.cgi> or the 1882 gazetteer <http://www.bogardi.com/gen/g104.shtml> are a great resource for looking up place names.

there are quite a few places that start with "csa'ka" but i didn't find anything quite like "csa'katu'r".

I wasn't given any other information, so I don't don't what part of
the country, but possibly in Zemplen county.

Thanks,

Is there a list of immigration arrivals for the port of Seattle between

Kolumbus and variations of spelling #general

Jack Kolumbus <jackkol@...>
 

My grandfather, John Kolumbus, came >from Slovakia to Philadelphia approx.
1890. His wife, Maria Matey (or Matej) also came >from Slovakia around the
same time. Although both grandparents were raised as Christians, comments
that I heard as a child lead me to believe that one or both of their
families might have been converted Jews. They spoke Slovak in their house
and threw in a number of Yiddish words!! I have done some research on the
Internet, such as the Ellis Island and other public records, and have found
other immigrants named Kolumbus >from Slavic countries who were Jewish. The
same records also list Jewish immigrants with variations in the spelling,
such as Kolumbis.

The grandchildren were given very little information on the Kolumbus family
in Slovakia. I discovered, >from the Ellis Island records, that 2 of my
grandfather's brothers also immigrated to the US but we grandchildren were
never told about them and have no knowledge of the whereabouts of their
families.

If we are Jewish, I would like to pass this information on to my
grandchildren and other members of our family. If you have any information
that would shed more light on our heritage, please contact me.

Thank you,

Request Help with old German Handwriting #germany

Brian Stern <brians99@...>
 

Hi All,

I have obtained several documents related to the SPEIER family from
Kleinheubach, Bavaria, >from the era of the 1890's. I have transcribed
them as best I can but there remains several words in each document that I
cannot read. I have put these documents on a web page with my
transcriptions and the difficult words are marked. I would appreciate it
if you can read the old German handwriting to take a look at the documents
and let me know if you can read any of the marked words.

The documents are at this web page:

http://home.earthlink.net/~brians99/speierdocs/speierfamilydocuments.html

Two of the documents are court documents and the third is a will. There
are several families mentioned besides the SPEIER family in the will and
court documents. There is no translation. Thanks for your help,

Brian Stern Lexington, KY <brians99@earthlink.net>

Temple incorporation papers? #general

A. E. Jordan
 

If a group of people got together in 1892 and started a temple would they have
had to incorporate it? How would I search for it?

They got together in 1892 in Hoboken, New Jersey and started the congregation.
In 1902 they built a building for the congregation in Hoboken and >from various
reports I believe the temple burnt down in the 1950s. The name of the
congrgation was Moses Montifiore.

I would like to find newspaper articles about the temple but I have no dates in
which to look in the newspapers. There is no index in the local newspapers of
the era that I know of. I would assume when the building opened in 1902 there
were likely newspaper articles but how do I search them when I do not have a date?

I was hoping that I might be able to find incorporation papers for the temple
and may be that would help me get to some dates. But where would the papers have
been filed and kept?

Any thoughts would be welcomed.

Shana Tova to the entire JewishGen staff and partipants!

Antiques Road Show, but without the appraisals."

The event will feature Bob Herskovitz, chief conservator for the Minnesota
Historical Society, who will provide expert advice on preserving treasured
items and about options for treating, displaying, and storing items such as
books, documents, photographs, textiles and clothing. A Yiddish translator
will be available to describe the contents of letters and documents.

Election of officers and the unveiling of a revamped website will be
followed by interactive workshops on preservation of family artifacts and
genealogy. JHSUM will exhibit some of the most unusual "attic" artifacts in
its collection. Free and open to the public. 20th Anniversary cake will be

Dear all,

I received quite a few good and helpful messages and directives >from co-members
also more than a few kind offers to help in the translations [of Hebrew
inscriptions]. It also seems that >from official side there is action on its way.

I have sent everybody who has responded a personal 'thank you', however, I'd
like to repeat this in this discussion group, also as a testimony that
JewishGen works!

As results appear, I will certainly tell so in this group.
