Corrections #hungary

Dear Genners,

I just realized that I made a slight mistake with the country of two
of the cemeteries I mentioned in my Part II update. PIR and URISHOR are both
in Romania, as opposed to Hungary.
Also, for the benefit of the newcomers, the acronym HFPJC stands for
Heritage Foundation for Preservation of Jewish Cemeteries.

Sorry for the inconvenience ...

All the best and best wishes for an easy fast...

Re: Genealogy software #hungary

However, any special capablities that the program offers will be lost.

Ask your relative to save the file as GEDCOM, the standard interchange
format for genealogy files. Then you can use any contemporary genealogy
program to import the GEDCOM file into it.

I am trying to open a family tree file sent to me by a relative, and am
having trouble.

It is a file ending with (suffix) FLW, and based on my internet research,
should be a dorotree type file. I went through the trouble of getting the
dorotree software, and still cannot open the file.

Any bright ideas?

Thanks.

HFPJC Update-Part II-Cemtery Restoration Projects #hungary

hfpjc
 

Dear Genners,

Firstly, I'd like to commend those of you who have responded already to
my Part I posting and for your warm words of thanks and encouragement; I
will try to respond to all of them as soon as possible.

Well, following is a list of all those cemeteries for which there is
considerable interest among the families and descendants to have restored.
All of these have already been evaluated-the preliminary step-and are either
in various stages of preparations for the projects or are being seriously
considered and processed(i.e. actual work will be immediately initiated upon
signing of contracts between HFPJC and family members/descendants.) Once
again, if you recognize your ancestral hometown, or if anybody has any
information that might be beneficial to the projects, please contact our
office. Also, digital photos of these cemeteries are available upon request.

I know that many of you have some roots in
Satoraljaujhely(Eihel)Hungary, so this is bound to be of interest,
especially as I have received requests and inquiries regarding this cemetery
from many J-Gen members.:
SATORALJAUJHELY, Hungary
The Jewish cemetery(New) of Satoraljaujhely is a huge cemetery. Granted,
the first section of the cemetery is in decent condition, but the lion's
share of the grounds are so badly overgrown that it is often impossible to
reach the gravestones and countless stones are even completely obscured from
view. I am happy to inform you that we have recently commenced the major
task of clearing the grounds of all the bush and wild vegetation so that we
can get an idea of the amount of gravestones in that cemetery. According to
our rep who was there together with an experienced contractor, he
approximated the amount to be several thousand tombstones! Of course, only
once the cemetery is cleaned can we determine the scope of restoring all
the damaged and neglected gravestones. Furthermore, in light of the sloping
grounds of the cemetery, a plan for a drainage system for the rainfalls is
currently being studied by a special engineering team. I will keep you
posted as to the progress.

DRAGMIRESTU, Romania
To be enclosed and restored internally. Project in latter phase of
preparation.

GUKLIVIJ, Ukraine
Cemetery open to all and in terrible condition. Descendants being
contacted-any others who have pertinent info.

HAJDUSOBOSZLO, Hungary
Large cemetery, to be properly enclosed.
Gathering of interested family members and descendants in process.

HAJDUBESZORMENY, Hungary
Grounds severely overgrown; vegetation to be cut and cleared in near
future, followed by individual photographing of tombstones and maintenance
arrangements.

PALEU, Hungary
Very bad condition. Gathering of interested family members and descendants
in process.

PAP, Hungary
The erection of a durable, concrete enclosure to be commenced in coming
weeks.

PIR, Romania
To be enclosed properly and restored internally. Project in preparatory
phases.

RAKHOV, Ukraine
Retainer wall urgently required to support eroding earth. Gathering of
interested family members and descendants in process.

STRIMTURA, Romania
Erection of concrete enclosure to be commenced in near future, followed by
interior restoration.

TISENIC/STROPKOV, Slovakia
Preparation for cutting wild vegetation in process. To be followed by
restoration of gravestones.

URISHOR, Romania
Interior to be completely restored. Project still in preparatory stages.

VALCAU DE JOS, Romania
Erosion posing substantial threat. Thorough research and correspondence with
Mayor yielded urgent(though very costly)need for a retainer wall. Project
still in preparatory stages.

ZHURAVNIKI, Ukraine
Recently evaluated-complete results being studied and to be released
shortly. Cemetery in deplorable condition. (Project initiated by Yizkor
Book Project Coordinator Mr. Gary Gershfiel >from Forest Hills)
----------------------------------------------------------------------------

I will try to keep you updated with the developments of these cemetey
projects.

Best regards to you all and in this merit, we we all be blessed with a Happy
Jewish New Year!

Where is "Siedmiogrod"? #general

Cory Streisinger <corys@...>
 

I've recently received a family tree written in Polish which includes some
branches of my WECHSLER family. I'm trying to identify Arnold WECHSLER
(born about 1820) and his daughter Fanny WECHSLER (born 1865), both of whom
were >from "Siedmiogrod" according to this tree. (There is an accent over
the second "o".) Is "Siedmiogrod" a specific city or town? My Google
search identifies it as a region of Transylvania, but I'd like to get more
precise if possible.

Thanks for your help.

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

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...

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.
