BECKER Family Tree #general

WALTER SPECTOR
 

Hello Genners,

I am trying to make a connection with Michele whose maiden name is Becker and
her husband's name is Scott. She made a contact with my second cousin who is
a Becker. His grandfather and my grandmother were brother and sister.

Our great grandfather had a brother who was Max or Michael. That might be the
link to Michele. I have many brick wall questions about Michael's family.

I have posted a message to Michele via Ancestry's message function but have
not yet received a response.

All assistance is greatly appreciated,

Kehilalinks sites under development #ukraine

mirnmike@...
 

I am beginning the process to develop Kehilalinks sites for two towns in the
Ukraine: Shepetivka (which our ancestors knew as Shepetovka), and Bilohirya
(which our ancestors knew as Lechovitz). Please contact me if you have any
pertinent information. Examples would include photos taken in these towns
(including family photos), travelogs, directories, articles, letters or
postcards sent >from these towns, and brief family histories. You can reach
me at mirkir59@gmail.com. Thanks!

Sorting out the names: FELDMAN from Tur'i Remety, Hungary and Scranton, Pennsylvania #hungary

Malka
 

Perhaps someone here can help me.

I have encountered a confusing situation regarding the names of my maternal
great grandparents, Leba FRIEDMAN FELDMAN and Yehudah (Joseph in the USA)
FELDMAN originally >from Tur?I Remety, Hungary and >from the late 1880?s,
Scranton, Pennsylvania. Part of the problem comes >from the fact that their
names and those of their children in Hebrew, Yiddish and English are common
in both places. I do know that in Scranton the family lived at 411 Emmett.
Many of their children lived in New Orleans and Texas. There were Grossman
and perhaps other relatives in Nashville but I am not certain >from which
side of the family, maybe >from both. There were FREED/ FREID/FRIED cousins
in Galveston, Texas but I have not researched that branch ? yet.

My gr-grandmother was Leba FRIEDMAN FEDMAN (parents Benjamin Solomon
FRIEDMAN and Rosa JACOBS or more likely JACOBOVITZ). Her Heb/Yid name was
Leba. This is known in family history and she has many descendants named
Leba. This is the name on her restored matzevah (tombstone) in Scranton,PA.
and in all family references such as obituaries of her children. Yet on
some official BMD records for her family, census reports, City directories,
etc. she is listed as Lena or Lina.
Complicating this is that one of her daughters was Lena. They are both
listed as Lena on the ship manifest of their USA arrival and some census
records (which is not as distressing as those are famous for
misinformation).

My gr-grandfather was Yehudah FELDMAN which is the name on his restored
matzevah and is the family name he was known by and was used for some of his
descendants. All of the USA records I have found list him as Joseph.

Because of this name confusion I am reluctant to do research in any
Hungarian records.

Any suggestions would be welcomed,
Thank you

Re: Help finding graves in Budapest #hungary

HungarianRoots
 

Dear Joe,

1. Oroklet has that problem. I haven't been able to move the pages 2,
3., etc.
2. MACSE database is NOT complete! Budapest, at the time, had 14
districts. different years of deaths are available for different
districts. SO that may be the reason you don't find those records. If
you know which districts' deaths are available there then you can
manually check for the death in the districts that are missing (on
family search.org).

I have checked for you and 1903 death records have been transcribed by
MACSE only for these districts:
- Current IV. district (formerly Ujpest, not part of Budapest in 1903).
The original district IV. was registered by district V. at the time.
- VI. district

It means you will have to manually check 1903 deaths for districts I.,
II., III., V., VII., VIII., IX., X., XI, XII., XIII., XIV.

I suggest you start with districts V., VII., VIII., IX, XIII. in Pest,
(which were the most Jewish districts or the ones with hospitals.)

Wishing you good luck.


I hope this helps.

My gggf Jozsef KLEIN (son of Armin/Herman KLEIN and Regina/Roza
GRUNWALD) died in Budapest on February 25, 1903 at the age of 69 years
old. Over the past few weeks I've tried to use the Oroklet website to
find his and other family graves, particularly that of his wife
Maria/Marie/Mari KLEIN nee EISLER. She died between 1903 and 1929,
although after much searching of various possible spellings I cannot
find her death in the MACSE database. I have two questions that I
hope someone can help me with:

First, after entering the search parameters on Oroklet.hu and getting
the beginning of the search results, none of the keys or links move me
off page 1 of the search results. I've tried different web browsers
and every time I click on a number/link to move forward in the search
results, the same page 1 of the results just reloads. Furthermore,
even if I don't search a name but click the letter "K" to look through
the entire database of surnames starting with that letter, the list
of results instead starts with the letter "A" and I cannot move off
that page. Any suggestions for using the Oroklet site? I used the
site many times a few years ago and never had problems.

Second, does anyone know for sure if the MACSE death record database
is complete for the years 1903-1929? Since I cannot find my gggm
Maria KLEIN nee EISLER indexed there, should I assume she didn't die
in Budapest, even through she is very likely buried there? I'm
assuming those years are included in the MACSE database because I
found other deaths there that occurred decades past the period I'm
interested in.

Thanks for any help finding the burial sites of this couple.
