Gyorgy SCHWARCZ #general

Giselle Bodziony
 

Dear Genners,

I'm looking for Gyorgy (Georg, called Gyuri) Schwarcz, born in Zsujta,
Hungary. He could be 80-90 years old today. His father, Gyula Schwarcz, and
his brother, Istvan Schwarcz, were killed by the nazis. Gyorgy and his
mother survived the Holocaust and lived in Zsujta and Budapest after WW2. In
the beginning of the 1950ies (before 1956) they escaped >from the Communist
regime in Hungary to Vienna. I was told that afterwards they went on to New
York. Gyorgy Schwarcz married and had children.
My grandfather, Dr. Erno Schwarcz (who was killed in Budapest in December
1944), and Gyula Schwarcz (Gyorgy Schwarcz' father) were siblings. In
connection with Gyorgy Schwarcz I heard the names Satori and Szego.

I ask you to help me to find György Schwarcz and his family.

With best wishes,

Giselle Bodziony

I have over a thousand Jewish names of people interned in the Tarnow ghetto.
These are only Jews who came >from shtetls outside Tarnow and did not reside
in Tarnow before the war.

If anyone wants me to look up a name please ask.

Bessarabian Holocaust Survivors in Brazil #general

Suzy Lampert <suzylampert@...>
 

Does anyone have e-mail addresses for any of these organizations? I was told
that these are organizations for Brazilian Holocaust survivors. I
understand that there was an influx of Bessarabian Jews to Brazil just
before WW II. I am trying to locate relatives who may have survived.

1. Confederacao Israelita do Brazil (CONIB)
2. Federacao Israelita do Estado de Minas Gerais
3. Federacao Israelita do Estado do Rio de Janeiro
4. Federacao Israelita de Estado de Sao Paulo

And if anyone can provide a translation of these organizations...

Thank you.

Mexico City Phone Book??? #general

Robert Zavos <rzavos@...>
 

Dear Stan, Israel, and JGS members,

As far as I know there is no current online Mexican phone book. I have the
same need and have tried many times over the past year. There were a few
sites that appeared to have one but when you submitted a search you get "Page
Not Found" or equivalents. If anyone has a specific URL that had worked for
them recently please let us all know. Mexico has a relative good sized
Jewish community and I have some relatives. Please try Zawoznik in Mexico
City if you need an example.

I would also like to find a 1920 or so Mexico City census online so if
anyone knows of one of those please let me know. I know LDS is suppossed to
have one but without a known address I assume that would be difficult to
use.

Re: Pocket Watch in "Tula Silver" #general

Many thanks to those who responded, on - and off- list, to my question.

If I'd had the sense to type "tula silver" rather than just "tula" into
the search engine, I would have found what I needed to know. Moral - always
do exhaustive research before posting a query!

I do have a follow-up question - if tula silver is an alloy of silver, lead,
copper and sulphur, as I now know it to be, can I assume that it would
have been cheaper than silver? My grandfather scraped a living as a
coffeehouse waiter and would not have been able to afford a silver watch.

Robert,

Alloys (an alloyed metals) have always been more practical than the base
material as in case of the pure iron and iron + carbon alloy known as steel.

Lead and cooper intentionally added to the silver in a very small amount,
have increased the corrosion resistance of this alloy.

Genealogy Book Recommendations #general

s_wiener@...
 

Hi, Genners,

My synagogue, Congregation Sherith-Israel, holds a
book fair every fall to coincide with Jewish Book
Month, [end of October-November.] I have volunteered
to provide a list of titles that anyone interested in
genealogy might purchase [either for him/herself or
for the congrgation library.]

So, I appeal to the group to please write back to me,
off-list, at shelliecee@yahoo.com, with any titles
that you think are essential to the beginner or any
pearls that you have come upon and have found
invaluable. Please - no book is too obvious or too
costly not to be considered by the committee.

Thanks for your assistance,
and L'Shana Tova Tiketevu,
Shellie Wiener

MODERATOR NOTE: Several InfoFiles may contain useful suggestions for your
book fair. Check the list at <http://www.jewishgen.org/infofiles/#Books>.

Re: INS Manifest number - occupation column *help* #general

Diane Jacobs <kingart@...>
 

Dear Mike,
This number and date is the certificate of arrival and the date is
1943 when this person applied for naturalization and received a
certificate of arrival which was noted on his passenger manifest line.

The 1 at the beginning of the number is for the New York area of the
US Federal Court where he showed his Intent to be Naturalized. The
Records for this naturalization after 1943 should be at NARA in
Manhattan at 201 Varick Street and for $10 they will do a search for
you.

There is also at Italian Genealogy Group a database for these
naturalizations and you may be able to find their petition number and
Date by going online and looking for it.

Good luck.

Hello,

I have thoroughly read through the website section devoted to
explanations to the manifest annotations:

http://www.jewishgen.org/InfoFiles/Manifests/occ/

and this did help me better understand my great grandfather
mastranski's manifest number in the occupation column: 1-430516-8-21-43

However - could someone tell me if there is actually any way to find out
more information >from this annotation? Does this number connect to
more than the fact that in 1943 the district he applied to was "1" and
therefore applied in either Boston, MA or New Haven, CT? I was hoping
I might find a way to connect this information with the actual
certificate of his naturalization - assuming one was carried out.

Can anyone confirm this or point me in the right direction please.

Thank you for a wonderfully informed website.

Regards,
Mike Mostransky

Kagan's Prenumerantn Lists: A "how-to" guide #general

Tom Chatt
 

With the help of various people on this list, I recently took a crack
at looking up my ancestral town in Berl Kagan's "Sefer HaPrenumerantn".
I had seen this work referred to by many other books, and knew that it
was a seminal work that may contain valuable information about my shtetl.
I also knew that it was written in Yiddish and Hebrew, which was daunting
to me, as I have only the most rudimentary skills at "decoding" the
Hebrew alphabet. However, the book is highly structured, and I found
I was able to extract useful information >from it. Based on my experience,
I decided I should give back to this great community that has helped me
out so much, so I wrote up a "beginner's how-to guide" for using this
resource. Thanks to some nice HTML editing by Warren Blatt, it is now
an InfoFile here on JewishGen:
< http://www.jewishgen.org/InfoFiles/prenumerantn.htm >

I hope this will help others to make use of this important resource,
and to learn more about their shtetls!

Best wishes,
