Heim, Name Changes #austria-czech

peter bakos <pgbakos@...>
 

Hi,

As far as I know, at least in Hungary where Sopron is located, names
remained as they were unless officially changed. One of the tools used by
the Fascists were the registers because all of the name changes were
recorded there. After 1895 when civil registration began, conversions were
recorded as well, so if you were Jewish and they were trying to find you,
well, it was easy.

Perhaps a name such as GROSS becomes GROSZ in Hungarian, (though I have seen
many WEISS as opposed to WEISZ) but there are no letters in HEIM that would
need changing to make it sound the same in Hungarian.

There is a commercial website which has a database of Hungarian name
changes, included in their collection of databases. You may wish to contact
me off list and I will provide you the contact.

Mike Posnick
 

Seeking information about the POSNIAK and EPHRAIM families that were
last known to be living in Istanbul, Turkey, in 1941. Moses POSNIAK,
age 34, son of Salmon (d. 1927, Istanbul) and Neche POSNIAK (d. 1939,
Istanbul), married Gerda Wolf EPHRAIM, age 30, daughter of Moritz and
Martha EPHRAIM, at the home of the bride's father in the Beyoglu
district of Istanbul on 25 August 1941. The members of these
families apparently left Istanbul sometime thereafter. Does anyone
know what happened to them?

Please reply privately.

NARA (US) Proposal on Digitizing Its Records #general

jan meisels allen <janmallen@...>
 

The U.S. National Archives and Records Administration (NARA) is seeking public
comment on its draft Plan for Digitizing Archival Materials for Public Access,
2007-2016. Comments are due by November 9, 2007 and should be sent to:
Vision@... or by fax to 301-837-0319

The purpose for this plan affects all the regional offices, the two Washington
D.C. archives and the various presidential libraries--equating to 10 billion
pieces of paper.. The stated purpose includes increased access to the records
and to preserve >from wear and tear the original records.

Part of the proposal is for NARA to partner with different organizations
(private, public, non-profit, educational and government)- and these partners
will assume much of the costs of the digitization. While the partners may not
assume the copyright for the records, they may add value added services. Access
to the partner products will remain free in the NARA Research rooms and after a
period of time NARA has the right to provide free online access to the digitized
materials.

The plan proposed by 2012 that 1% of the documents will be online either
digitized by the partners or NARA. The proposal lists the NARA draft operating
standards, list of existing partners and other items relevant to the proposal,
and guidance on handling the documents. The proposal may be accessed at:

Hi Listers,
I have traced my Ancestors to Matterburg, at around the early 1800's.
Does anyone know if there are any Archives or where I might find records of
Birth, marriages and Deaths during the 1800, and are there any Cemetery
Lists?
