researching members of Fink and Sprei families from Grybow, Poland and Leipzig, Germany #poland

Peter Sprung <psprung@...>
 

I am researching certain family members who lived in or near Grybow,
Poland and Leipzig, Germany.

Abraham Fink and Malka Sarah Fink (nee Sprei) were husband and wife.
Both are believed to have been >from Grybow or thereabouts. Their dates
of birth are unknown. They may have lived later in Leipzig, Germany.

Abraham and Malka Sarah had a daughter named Chaje Klara, who was born
in Grybow on January 24, 1893, and a son named Isadore, whose birth
date is unknown.

Chaje Klara Fink married Chune Markus Sprung, who was >from Brody, and
after moving to Leipzig, Germany, they had three children: Lilli,
Sylvia, and Heinz. Chaje Klara died in the Holocaust.

Chaje Klara's first cousin was Marja Sprei, place and date of birth
unknown. As of the 1940's, Marja was living in Malvern, UK, and was
married to Hendryk Weksner, who was >from Krakow.

Other possible relatives of these persons were: Amalie Fink/Sprei,
Israel Fink, Marie Sprei, and Abraham Salomon Sprei, all living in
Leipzig.

I would appreciate hearing >from anyone having relevant information.

JRI-Poland at the Conference - Part 3 #poland

Mark Halpern
 

Dear Fellow Conference Goers:

This year the Conference is in our "court" - in the ancestral homes for
our many volunteers and supporters. This year, JRI-Poland is a Platinum
Sponsor of the 38th IAJGS International Conference on Jewish Genealogy.

JRI-Poland is an all-volunteer organization. We have hundreds of active
volunteers >from all around the globe. Our volunteers are coordinators of
the indexing process. They are fund raisers. They enter and check data.
They manage and update our website. They respond to researcher
questions. And much more.

JRI-Poland has scheduled two meetings during the Conference to get
together with our existing volunteers and prospective volunteers.

On Wednesday >from 12:15 to 13:15, we will host Current Volunteers in the
Radom-HM 7 room for a brown bag luncheon. Bring your lunch for a lively
discussion of JRI-Poland's plans for the future and a discussion of
topics of interest to you.

On Thursday >from 12:15 to 13:15, we will host New Volunteers in the
Radom-HM 7 room for a brown bag luncheon. Bring your lunch. We will
explain the volunteer opportunities available to support an organization
that supports your research and answer your questions.

Come by the JRI-Poland booth at the Share Fair on Sunday and the
Resource Village on Monday through Wednesday to discuss anything about
JRI-Poland's activities, volunteer opportunities, or just to schmooze.

See you all soon.

JRI-Poland Conference Coordinator

Ukraine SIG info - July #ukraine

Janette Silverman
 

Dear Friends:
Many of the translation projects are moving ahead quickly, and in
September I'll be submitting thousands of new lines of data for revision
lists as well as vital records. Most of the time when new data is
published it is not complete data >from a record set but rather
incremental lines. It makes so much more sense that rather than wait
years for a dataset to be finished, information be published as pages
are completed. That way all of you have information to search through
sooner.

There is a set of data that I hope to have included in the JewishGen
databases even before September - I don't want to say right now what it
is, in case there is a hold up with it, but as soon as I get word that
it has passed through the final hurdles, I'll let you know!

SO many people are working on so many projects right now, that I decided
that rather than try to reach everyone individually, it would make more
sense, based on my own schedule, to just make this request through the
Discussion Group. I will be traveling through Europe on a research trip
from 3 August through 1 September. That trip of course includes the
conference.

Please, if you are working on a translation project, do not send me any
transcription pages until I return. Although I will have email access,
I will not be processing any incoming worksheets, and I am concerned
that they will get lost in my inbox. My travel schedule is very tight
and exhausting, and there is a good chance that I may not have internet
access in all the places I will be visiting. Because of that, there is a
good possibility that I may not respond to, or even read, all the email
that comes in during the month.

My travel of course includes several places covered by Ukraine SIG, most
notably, Kiev, Khmelnietsky, Vinitsa and Mogilev Podolsky. I will be
maintaining a daily blog, not only of my visits to "our" towns but also
of my travels in Poland, Lithuania, Moldova, Romania, and places in
western Ukraine which were formerly in Galicia. In case any of you want
to follow my travels, the blog is at
https://relativatree.wordpress.com/2018/07/25/if-its-tuesday-it-must-be/

Although I would love to be able to accommodate your requests to do
research for any and all of you, my calendar is full and I cannot do
research for any of you, so please don't ask.

Looking forward to seeing many of you at the conference - remember
Wednesday morning (8 August) is our Ukraine SIG meeting followed by the
luncheon. Luncheon reservations are closed by now but I know that we
have a lot of people who signed up. If you need to speak with me during
the conference, leave a note on the message board or come find me in the
Exhibit Hall. Because of my schedule I will be leaving the conference
right after the Ukraine SIG lunch.

I would greatly appreciate a full translation.

It is on ViewMate at the following address:

First Belarus SIG Newsletter 1998 #belarus

I saw in a Facebook post mention of an article which I believe was written by
someone with the last name of Stein for the first newsletter published
by Belarus SIG in 1998. The article was about Belarus shtetls. It
appears that the article no longer accessible. Would anyone have a copy
of that article that they would share with me?

Thanks in advance

List uf Bekescsa ba #hungary

g_hirsch@...
 

Dear H-SIG-ers:
Earlier when visiting the commemoration in my hometown of Bekescsaba, I made a side trip to the county archive in Gyula there I transcribed >from the 1945-1951 register "halalesetfelveteli nyilvantartas" (death case register) the death declaration of Jews died in the times of the persecution. Later I added the names I found on-line in "Family Search" so in time I collected the names of some 800 Holocaust victims. Â As there is no Yizkor boo for Blekescsaba I think it might fit the Jewishgen Yizkor list criteria, even it is not taken >from an actual book or a publication.
The list I am offering H-SIG contains less than the half of the about 2000 victims of Bekescsaba, as I realized, several names are missing - even >from my relatives. For instance my uncle declared his wife dead, but not his 7 years old son Jozsef and his 3 Month old Peter. My surviving cousin. hasn't declared her father and mother, (may be some of you might has an answer for the reason, of the missing declarations.)

All the best
Gabor Hirsch

Moderator: I encourage Gabor and anyone else who comes across lists of Shoah victims
or survivors to contact Nolan Altman <naltman@jewishgen.org>, who coordinates JewishGen's Holocaust database,
to contributing the information so it can be accessible to other researchers.

1869 Hungary Census #hungary

albie.hochhauser@...
 

I need some help deciphering the 1869 Census pages. My family
(Hochhauser) appears on two pages - the first looks like a cover page
and the second has the details. On the first page, the city Berzevicze
appears, and on the second page the city of birth for each family
member appears. Most of the children were born in Bajorvagas,
including the youngest, who was born in 1869.
Is the city on the first page the pace where the family lived,
or is it the place where the census records were kept?
The pages in question are on LDS Microfilm 2150626 pages 83-84.

Albie Hochhauser

Moderator: 1869 has at least 4 pages for each address. Cover page identifies place
of residence and describes the property. The two middle pages list members of each
household, age, relationship to head of household, place of birth, last page lists
livestock on the property. The Hungarian State Archives in Budapest have some 1869
census records including Saros, Szepes, Nyitra and Zemplen, most of which area is
now in Slovakia.
