"Hidden" names in the Hungary database #hungary

Judy Petersen
 

Hello,
Another way to search for town names if all you have is the=20
Hungarian name is via wikipedia.
For example, go the the main wikipedia site www.wikipedia.org =20
Choose "Magyar"
as the search language. Enter the Hungarian name of your town. For=20
demonstration purposes, I chose
Nagyvarad. And up comes the following page: =20
http://hu.wikipedia.org/wiki/Nagyv%C3%A1rad
I don't understand a word of Hungarian, but in a box in the upper right=20
corner it says "Nagyvarad
(Oradea, Grosswardein)" which are the Romanian and German names for the=20
town.
It works for smaller towns, as well. Lately I've been=20
transcribing HungarianYizkor book necrologies
and I need to put in the current name of the towns listed in the=20
necrology. I've found 95% of them this way.

for
the first time to our efforts to find our ancestors.

Searching town names is always a problem. Jewishgen town finder help=20
only in
very few cases. I will draw your attention to a excellent free database.
Using this I was able to find even Hungarian, German or Slovak town=20
names in
more than 90% cases. You will find this database under www.cisarik.com.=20
If
necessary I hope to help with more explications.

Berezhnytsi, Ukraine #general

Yonatan Ben-Ari
 

I located on a map of Ukraine a town called Berezhnytsi (NW Ukr.)
which would seem a good candidate for my gggggreatgrandfather's town
as his (or his wife's) ancestors and his descendants were active in
the general area. Searching the Jewishgen communities databases ,
when I wrote in the name of the town they gave me "0 matches". Does
this mean that there was no known Jewish community in that town?

Descendants of Rabbis of Kremenetz, Ukr.18th cent #rabbinic

Yonatan Ben-Ari
 

According to my (and another) family tree, we are descendants of the
Mahara"l (of Prague) through R' Naftali KATZ (the "Smichat Chachamim)
and his descendants Shmuel and son Arieh who were Rabbis of Kremenetz
in the 18th cent. These Rabbis were also descendants of the Maharsha"L
(Luria). These geneaolgies appear in several published sources.

The above Rav Arieh Leib had a son (or grandson) who served later in
Rivne. My link to this tree is through a daughter of Arieh who is not
mentioned in any published sources (that I have found). This daughter
married a Yosef of Bereznitz (Berezne?), who had a son Yisrael
(possibly ROSENBAUM) of Ostroh, in turn had at least two sons,
(chaim)Yosef and David (changed his name to SCHECHTER)(my
ggreatgranfather). David SCHECHTER and his descendants served in
several communities in Ukr. (Starokonstantine, Skalat) as Schochtim
(ritual butchers).

If this tree, >from the above Arieh Leibs daughter, sounds familiar to
anyone, I would be very happy to hear >from you.

Thank you
