Sometime ago I looked at the Budapest BMD registers for the 1850s and
found that at this time they were in the German language. When did
they switch over to Hungarian?

According to the 1936 Budapest probate papers of her uncle, Arnold
Roseth, Gizella ROSETH was married to Mihaly VERES and was living in Paris.
Gizella was born in Kassa, Hungary (Kosice, Slovakia) on September 21, 1887
to Adolph and Amalia Korn ROSETH.
What French records
might be available, on line or otherwise, to find out
more about Gizella and what eventually happened to her?

Hi Barbara,
There are few data on line available in France for genealogical research.
But if Gizella and her husband obtained the French citizenship, which
can be checked easily, then we can consult the corresponding files,
which are usually very informative.
Another possibilty is that they have been deported by the Nazis. I
hope not, but if this is the case, the lists are available.

Shabbat Candle Holders, Lomza Gubernia #poland

Shelly Crane
 

Hello,

I was honored today with a most magnificent and awe inspiring gift >from a
cousin and that is 2 brass Shabbat Candle holders, which were apparently
passed down >from generation to generation for at least 300+ years!
Someone else in the family has the 3rd candle holder.

They are very heavy and my frail and petite 70+ year old great grandmother
Nechama MILEWICZ-LIPOWICZ >from Szczuczyn, (Lomza Gubernia) schlepped them
over to the US by herself when she immigrated in May 1939. These candle
holders obviously meant a lot to my great grandmother and now I am now
blessed to touch and hold this most precious piece of family Judaica and
will be honored to light them every Shabbos and someday pass them on to
the next generation.

Along with that is a desire to learn as much as possible about Shabbos
candle holders and traditions >from that time period (on or before 1700).
A "google" didn't uncover what I was looking for in my search for more
history.

Is there anyone with a special interest in antique Judaica >from Poland,
who is willing to share their expertise? I would love to learn more,
particularly if there should be any unique markings, design etc, which
would identify a more precise time period.

Please respond privately unless there is general information pertaining to
genealogy research.

Thank you!

Help with names #romania

Jamie Kotler <jbakotler@...>
 

Are Michael and Mircea the same name in Romanian? My father's brother
was Michael Benado and lived at #40 Papazoglu St in Bucharest. I
recently saw a census listing for a Mircea Benado who lived at #10
Papazoglu. Would they be the same person? Michael always signed his
letters as Michael, not Mircea.

Varniai Vital Records Translation Project #lithuania

An appeal to all Varniai researchers. We are at the last stages of the
translation project and thousands of records have been released to financial
contributors. However, work stalled a few months ago due to lack of funds
and we all face the frustration of not being able to uncover the last
roughly 1500 birth records.

There are only eleven Varniai VRT Project financial supporters and several
of them have donated far in excess of the $100 qualifying contribution>
I can't ask them to do more. So I am appealing to anyone who has an interest
in the shtetl of Varniai or the surrounding Telsiai district to support us
with the few hundred dollars it will take to complete this project.

A donation of $100 will entitle you to immediate access to all Varniai
marriage, divorce and death records and 1079 nineteenth century births.
Please assist us to complete our work and urge relatives and other
researchers looking for information >from this region to make a contribution.
This can be done easily by following the instructions at the end of this

1784, 1765 census lists in the Lithuanian State Historical Archives #lithuania

SoniaHoff1@...
 

Adam,

The Jewish Family History Foundation's has acquired all of the 1784 and
many of the 1765 poll-tax censuses for the Grand Duchy of Lithuania
Project (including what later became Belarus and Lithuania.) A
substantial number of these (in Polish) have been transliterated
already. It took several years to complete an inventory of the Jewish
kahals found in these 2400 pages, so many of those listed by the RTR
Foundation have been missed. On the Grand Duchy of Lithuania Project
website you can find lists of the nearly 100 Jewish communities which
are included and the status of their translation. The GDL Project will
begin publication of this data soon.

*Siauliai uyezd 1858 revision (1262/1/99)
*Siauliai uyezd 1866-69 additional revision (1262/1/124)

This is all the revisions/censuses that I have been able to confirm as
excisting for the former Siauliai uyezd. The sources for the 1765 censuses
comes >from the RTRFoundation website and I'm not sure they are correct as
they are not in the form fond/opis/delo. But might there be more
revisions/censuses in the Lithuanian State Historical Archives? According to
what I know there was also a census in 1784 as well as revisions in 1818

Indeed there were many Jewish officers in the Austrian army in WW1.
They fought everywhere and were often decorated for bravery.
Some of the fiercest battles were in the Isonzo region of the Dolomites,
where there were many thousands of casualties, as well as in Galicia
