Dr. Erno Schwarcz #hungary

Dear Genners,

I contacted you some months ago, asking you to help me with my search for my
grandfather and his family. I've been investigating now for more than 30
years, the last 5 of them very intensely. I learned a lot, and I collected
plenty of material. In the end, I was looking for my uncle, because he was
told to be the closest living relative to my grandfather and me. After
having written to you I learned in different archives that some information
was inprecise. Luckily
I could find out the precise data, finally. One says that there are no
miracles; but I learned that there are: One week ago I found my
uncle and his wife - and simultaneously three cousins. The
tragic faith of my grandfather, Dr. Ernö Schwarcz, sadly turned out to be
true: he was killed, together with his younger son, in a December's night in
1944 in Budapest >from Hungarian nazis ("Kreuzpfeiler").
I'm thankful now, that I found my uncle and my cousins.
I would like to thank you for your advices and all the mails.

I wish you all the best,

Giselle

Re: Eloping in 1930s NY #general

Niagara Falls was a popular place to honeymoon - and to elope to - as well
as other places out of state. It may have been that the bride was underage,
in which case, I believe, South Carolina was a major location. But if she
was of age, then most anywhere would do.

Can anyone who has access to either the 1861 or 1871 UK Census please help
me? I have run into the proverbial brick wall.
You have to go along to the Family Records Centre in London to view the

There are a bunch of da Silva Rosa's found in the Amsterdam marriages and a
bigger bunch of Nunes Cardozo's - although none matching your Abraham and
Sarah - so you may have ancestors or cousins in the Amsterdam records.

In the Amsterdam Sephardi records, there are 3 Guidon da Silva
Rosa's(probably your Guideon), likely >from the same family as yours since
this is a rather odd first name for the group.

So check Amsterdam - there was a lot of overlap of the two communities.

Samuel Adelson is not in the List of Additions to Roll of Honour in the British
Jewry Book of Honour because that list is of men who were kiiled in action or died
on service. J.6401 Pte Samuel Adelson was a survivor. I compiled and contributed
that list to the Members' Section.

Harold Pollins
--------------------------------------------------
Berny Goodheart was kind enough to look up my great-uncle's name (Samuel
Adelson) in the above-referenced book, but he's not listed. He served with
the 38th and later 39th regiments of the Royal Fusilliers >from 1914-1920 and
was awarded a combat medal. As I live in Tucson, Arizona, I was hoping a
member of the jgsgb would look to see if he's mentioned in the members
section "List of Additions to Roll of Honour in the British Jewry Book of
Honour". I would be most appreciative.

Thanks to Martyn Woolf & Stan Rose: Martyn pointed out the Zoom In/Out
option at the top left of the page, which was very successful. And Stan
pointed out the View Options, Text Size, which was helpful but did not
affect the size of the actual digitized image.

Thank you both. - I've already found some of the people I am interested in!

Re: Fried gefilte fish #general

Nick <tulse04-news@...>
 

I too have often wondered where the fried gefilte fish cooked by my
grandmother originated. Dora Kraft Waltman, my father's mother, was born in
Zhabokrich, Ukraine which was a small shtetl in south-western Ukraine, near
what is now the Moldavian border. I had always assumed that her recipe,
which my mother and I now cook on all family occasions, was devised either
by her mother (or earlier) or by my grandmother herself. I have never met
anyone else in Canada (or relatives in the U.S.A.) who have ever heard of
such a recipe. What was different about my family recipe is that my
grandmother first fried a gefilte fish patty very lightly (the same mixture
as used for boiled gefilte fish) and then baked it.
I have just been to Vilnius in Lithuania. Whilst there I went to a mall
outside Vilnius. In the "cafeteria" where everyone was eating there were
lots of familiar looking items. I obviously don't read Lithuanian and barely
understand Russian. But the items that were being fried seemed remarkably
familiar - either like blintzes, blinys or latkes. I bought what I thought
was a latke but turned out to contain some meat - I don't eat non-kosher
meat.

My family don't derive >from Lithuania but I don't think anything you
describe would have seemed at all strange to the burghers of Vilnius.

Hello, finally after years of looking I believe I have found the name of
my ggg-grandmother! Very exciting (well, to me) -- but I have never come
across this name before and cannot figure out how to pronounce it, or if
it is related to (or a nickname for) another name. Could somebody please
enlighten me off list? Her name was Urajac GELBART; and she married my
ggg-grandfather Jude (or Juda) WARSZAWSKI in 1847. It's her *first* name I
am trying to figure out. Thank you, Julia VZ sonar230@...

request for information on Samuel and Yetta KESSLER #general

Barbara Lewis <bobbi@...>
 

I am trying to locate information on my grandparents, Samuel and Yetta
KESSLER, who came >from Austria to New York City during the first part of
the twentieth century before my father, whose birth name was Solomon
Willie Kessler, was born in 1913. My father had an older sister, who
went by the name of Ann (may have been changed >from Anna), who was
likely born in N.Y.C., but I am not absolutely sure of her place of
birth. Yetta's maiden name was Antler. I have already checked the
Ellis Island web-site and found three Samuel Kessler's who came >from
Austria. I don't know if the Ellis Island records are complete or
totally accurate.

Any help you could give would be appreciated. Both my father and his
sister Ann, as well as his brother, Karl, died before I could get the
information. Ann, whose married name was AMENDOLA, is buried in N.Y.C.
My father died in San Jose, CA. I know very little about his parents.
I have been told by a cousin they died when my father was a teen-ager.
My father's birth certificate says Samuel Kessler was a carpenter.

Sincerely,
Barbara Lewis


USCIER -- GLATZER #general

m leonards <m_leonards@...>
 

Dear Mrs. Glatzer:

First, in all the messages you've sent, you never once note where you are.
This would make it easier for people to suggest resources.

Secondly, I don't know whether you noticed the JewishGen message last week
reporting that the ItalianGen index of NYC deaths had been updated to 1929.
(http://www.italiangen.org/NYCDeathSearch.stm)

I find the following possibilities for Miriam GLATZER:

Uscier Mirche 62 y Feb 8 1922 4089 Manhattan
Glatzer Minnie 72 y Nov 2 1926 27178 Manhattan

Good luck in your research,
