Immigration to the New World #sephardic

Carol Rombro Rider
 

Some of you may be familiar with this website, but I was not. Brigham Young
University has a volunteer group to locate information about birthplaces of
immigrants into the New World; information that is not found in port
registers. Obviously it is a work in progress but one that should provide some of us
with hard-to-find information, especially if our ancestors came >from Spain
and were desperately trying to conceal as much of their background as
possible.

Happy searching!

IZMIR, TURKEY #sephardic

Suzanne Havivi <shavivi@...>
 

I am looking for info regarding my husband's family. His family name is now
Havivi (probably Habib/Haviv/or something similar. We believe that his
Father's family were Rabbinical a few generations ago - could he be
descended >from M'am Loez?. In addition, we recently discovered that his
maternal Grandmother originated >from Germany - she was known by the name
Suleiman (probably Solomon). An article on Izmir that I found confirmed
that a group of Ashkenazim arrived in Izmir at the beginning of the 20th
century. She married into El-Bachari family (my Mother-in-law's maiden
name). Many of the family moved to Israel in 1948. Any information on
either side would be most welcome.

Thank you.

I don't think that there are comprehensive lists of deported Hungarian
Jews, such as there are for Germany, Austria, Czech Republic, Belgium,
France etc. However here are some lists:

titles:
Names of Hungarian Jews Deported to Mauthausen
Names of Deported Jews >from Zala County
Hungarian Women in Stutthof Concentration Camp
Names of Jewish Victims of Hungarian Labour Battalions
Names of Deported Jews >from Haidu County

The famous book by Prof. Randolph Braham entitled The Politics of
Genocide, 1994 edition, has extensive endnotes with details of
sources. I checked just a few pages and found the following:
List of the Jews in the communities of Magyarovar district, see HNA
[Hungarian National Archives], Roll 71.
The list of Jews of Mosonmagyarovar and Jewish businesses was
forwarded to the authorities toward the end of April 1944 by Oszkar
Frischmann, the head of the community. HNA, Roll 86.

HNA Rolls 173 & 175 contain lists (not necessarily deportation) of
Jews of Abaujker, Abauszanto & Alsocece.
HNA Rolls 120-122 contain list of Jews >from Borsod county >from the
period of the anti-Jewish drive. The following communities are
included:
Alsoabrany, Borsodgeszt, Felsoabrany, Kacs, Keresztpuspok,
Mezokeresztes, Mesonagymihaly, Mezonyarad, Saly, Szentivan,
Tibolddaroc, and Vatta.
A letter published by Mrs. Kovari >from Kiryat Yam has a partial list
of martyrs >from Hort, her home town. Prof Braham also mentions a
number of Yizkor books, which have extensive lists of Hungarioan
victims.

I would like to thank Adam Smith for his detailed report on his experience
in the Budapest archives which appeared in the May 30 digest.

I have one question: Where in Budapest is the new Holocaust Documentation
Centre located?

If any one has it handy, I would also appreciate the address of the archives
in Castle Hill and Obuda.

spam roundabout attempt: Galicia/Belarus/Minsk ancestry #unitedkingdom

My apologies here... For some reason, nearly all mail to me >from my
genealogy SIG mailing lists has been eaten by our spam filter for the
past month or two. We've tried to correct it, but something about the
formatting of these lists has convinced the filter that these messages
are not real mail for me. Sending mail >from my account directly to the
lists seems to be the only way to fix it, since tinkering with the
filters hasn't helped. I'm hoping this one message will take care of
the issue.

Main family branches I'm researching are listed in my .sig below... All
came to the US (NYC) ca. 1900, most within 10-20 years of that date.
One FARBER came to Boston during WWII. Some family members were known
to have stayed behind, especially in W-L and thereabouts. Some
WOLFSHAUTs came via Canada and/or the UK. We have not yet found our
KAGANs in Minsk, as so many are >from there and we haven't much, if any,
pre-immigration paperwork for them.

Thanks for letting me know if you think you're connected!

Re: German/Austrian Jews Circa 1905 "Zim" #general

Roger Lustig <julierog@...>
 

http://www.zim.co.il/content.aspx?id=529&l=4, the web site of the ZIM shipping
company, says the following:
"The name "ZIM" was suggested by Israel’s first Minister of Transportation, David
Remez, based on a passage in the Old Testament (Numbers 24:24) in which the Hebrew
word "Zim" is used to refer to "large vessels." The name was chosen as appropriate
for the company’s main goal: to build a large merchant fleet."

So: how large *is* this vessel you've acquired? And could you post a photo of this
item to Viewmate?

letters). Does anyone know what this might refer to?

Re: New USCIS 'service' #galicia

jps
 

My understanding of the mew 'faster service' promised by USCIS is
that it comes at a substantial cost. The majority of us will not be
able to afford to get copies of our families records. This will
certainly stop people >from trying for records that are only
possibly related when we are hitting those brick walls. Undoubtedly
it will be much faster as they will have much less work to do. Much
better would have been to offer this expedited service as an *option*
but still allow those that are willing to wait a year or so to get
the records of their family for free or minimal cost as is the
current system. Even better, how about spending the million dollars
or so that they are spending to implement this system on digitizing
the records and putting them on the web so we can get them ourselves.

Just my 2 cents.

BRILL From Bursztyn, Ukraine #galicia

Arnon Hershkovitz <arnonh@...>
 

Hello, Dear Colleagues!

I'm trying to find as many details as possible about the family
BRILL from

Bursztyn, Ukraine (formerly in Galicia)

I know almost nothing about this family (this is the reason to this
general question), but it may be recognized by its famous member:
Colonel Moshe BAR-KOKHVA (BRILL) (born 1930, Burztyn, Ukraine; died
1992, Tel Aviv, Israel), one of Israel's great heroes. His father's
name is Maximilian.

I know Moshe's family in Israel, and together with them I'm trying
to connect with other relatives.

Yours,
Arnon Hershkovitz, Israel
