My grandfather's marriage in London 1897-99 #general

משה פלבר
 

Dear Genners
Does any one have access to any lists where the as many particulars as
possible could be found of marriage of Morris FELBER some time between 1896
and 1899. He obviously didn't do it through the United Synagogue.
Thanks
Moshe Felber

I'd like to announce that I have started the LANDAU Y-DNA project on
FamilyTreeDNA.
Y-DNA test can answer the question how many separate Landau ancestral
lines there are and which LANDAU's are related.

Museum of the Jewish Soldier in World War II #general

Saul Issroff
 

A Museum of the Jewish Soldier in World War II is being established
in Yad Lashiryon site in Latrun, on the main road between Tel-Aviv and
Jerusalem.
http://www.jwmww2.org/show_item.asp?levelId=65022
This website is in English, Hebrew and Russian
There are a number of features of genealogical interest including the
facility to contribute names of soldiers, Ghetto fighters, artisans,
Yishuv soldiers etc online.
Over 1.5 million people are estimated to have fought, and at least a
quarter of a million were killed in action.

the website will have searchable databases but, as with the museum
itself, is in the course of construction and is a very interesting
site.

Salavitch (sp?) trouble locating #poland

Adiva Bloch
 

I recently received my great-grandfather's death certificate.
Unfortunately, it did not contain his parents' names. However, it says
he is >from Salavitch (spelling >from the certificate) Poland. I am
unable to locate any place by that name and was wondering if someone
here would be able to help me figure out where he's from.

Thank you,

Re: Town Location #hungary

"zbinyatz" definitely does not sound or look like a hungarian name - to me it sounds
slavic (which could mean polish, slovak, serbian, etc.). only the "ny" in the
middle strikes me as possibly hungarian.

there was nothing for "zbin", but looking for just "bin" in bogardi.com's 1913
gazetteer found 7 hits, all in slovakia today, but no obvious matches. they're all
nicely grouped in the same northwest corner of the map of "greater hungary".

a search for "bin" on the transindex database produced 40 hits (it searches in all
the alternate names, including old german, hungarian, as well as "local"), with 26
>from slovakia, including "zebinec" (hungarian name va'gbe'ka's, in trencse'n megye
). it's in the northwest corner of "greater hungary".

another possible candidate is zabnik (be'ka'sd) in croatia. it is further south
than the others.


....... tom klein, toronto

ps. incidentally, be'ka means frog in hungarian. in slavic languages, including
slovak, croatian and ukranian it is zaba (with a funny accent on the z, pronounced
like a hungarian zs); hence the connection between the hungarian and the present-day names.

The Ohio death certificate for a relative states that she was born in Zbinyatz, Hungary. Has anyone any idea what this town is now called?

A Thank You #hungary

Stuart Ungar
 

Hi all,

Just a quick note to say how wonderful it is to be a JewishGen member and on these
SIG lists. So many folks have been so kind to help me and countless others with
personal and very valuable research. I've been "obsessed" with searching... like
so many others... and have discovered things that just a few years ago I never
thought would have been possible. I have also created two "shtetlink" sites for
JewishGen as well as a personal family tree Web site. All of this has been
extremely rewarding.

So... Thank You and wishes for a wonderful Thanksgiving!

My ggm was born in Bartfa, Hungary which is now Bardejov, Slovakia.

I just received her sister's death certificate >from 1932 and her birthplace
is listed as Hparis or Hparia, Austria-Hungary. Any suggestions on what
this could be?

Thanks for your help!
