I have posted two pages of a Latvian Death Record on Viewmate.

These are the death record for Sora Pessa Friedman, wife of Moses
Abramson (also known as Friedman) or son of Abram, died 16/2/1854 in
Bauska, Bausk, Courland.

The film reference at the Latvia Deaths Database is LWA/5024/2/140.

They are on ViewMate at the following addresses ...

http://www.jewishgen.org/viewmate/viewmateview.asp?key=VM55078
http://www.jewishgen.org/viewmate/viewmateview.asp?key=VM55079

Although the images do not have very good resolution, I would
appreciate any family details you might discern, especially >from the
second image with the block of text.

Please respond via the form provided in the ViewMate application.
Thank you very much.

ViewMate translation requested (Hebrew or Yiddish?) #germany

jberlowitz331@...
 

Dear SIGgers,

On ViewMate 55089 I have posted the image of an inscription in
handwritten Hebrew characters found on the flyleaf of a book on
midwifery published in Berlin in 1830. I would like a translation in
English and am curious to know if anything is said about the woman
whose name appears above the inscription. The book belonged to Dr.
Ludwik Finkelstein, a well-known scientist who died in London in 2011.
His wife, Mirjam FINKELSTEIN (WIENER) Z"L was a descendant of the
PHILIPSBORN family.

I have added Raczki emigration data to the Kehilalinks website. No vital
records or census information >from the 19th or early 20th century has been
found so this is a small effort to help descendant researchers.

You can get to the website quickly by searching "Raczki Jewishgen"

Gerard GRUMBACH from France #general

Eve Line Blum <eve.line.blum@...>
 

I'm searching information concerning Gerard GRUMBACH who was deported >from
France in May 1944. His place and date of birth seem to have been mispelled
when he arrived in Drancy, and it seems impossible to find the exact
information.

He was registered as Gerard GRUMBACH, born in PARIS or PARYS, on 12 March
1893, but the searches into the decennial tables in the 20 arrondissements
of PARIS were made in vain.

Does anyone have genealogical information concerning Gerard GRUMBACH?

Voter Lists in the Pale of Settlement #general

Judith Singer
 

Does anyone know the qualifications for being included on a voter list in Kovno
Gubernia during the period >from about 1880 to 1905? In Kavarskas, there are
about 100 names on the voter lists for 1880 and 1882 and nearly 500 names on
the Box Taxpayer List for 1877, only a few year earlier, so the qualifications
must have been different. Did people on the voter list have to own property or
have a trade? Or did the voter list include only those who voted, not everyone
who was eligible to vote? Any help would be appreciated.

Thank you -
Judith Singer

Greetings to all,

Just to add a point, which might be useful for future research.

Today the Hungarian version of the Latin Alphabet has 40 (short) or 44 (lon=
g) "letters", including those made of two letters (like SZ, ZS, TY, etc.), =
some made of three letters (DZS)! But they are relatively new inventions, a=
nd was used after the reform of the Hungarian language in th XIXth Century=
. Before that=A0the orthography of the Hanugarian language was not standard=
ized. Before the introduction of the ZS letter S was used for that sound, w=
hich is kept in some family names: Dosa-Dozsa, Josika-Jozsika, Kolosy-Kolo=
zsi, Rosa- Rozsa, etc. Words like ZSIDO (with ling accent over o - JEW or J=
EWISH), was writen as SID=D3.

Regards,

Gyorgy

Siga is just a mispelling of the nickname Zsiga (=3DZsigmond).

ViewMate Request #hungary

Amit N
 

Hello all,

I have posted a photo on ViewMate and I wonder if anyone can help and
provide some information.
http://www.jewishgen.org/viewmate/viewmateview.asp?key=VM55024

I know this is not an ordinary question, however I am curious. I
wonder if anyone can recognize this silver manufacturer emblem. Some
details: this is the handle of a silverware piece belonged to my
great-grandmother, who lived in the Austro-Hungarian Empire /
Yugoslavia. I don't know if it's any older than the 30's.

I have already been told this seems to be an engraving which means
this might be a symbol of a shop owner rather than maufacturer. The
related geographical area is Vojvodina in modern Serbia or southern
Hungary.

Do you think you know? I would love to hear >from you.
Thank you!
