New material in the Hungarian Databases #hungary

ethnoca@...
 

I am happy to announce that we were able to make another large upload into the
Hungarian databases, over 16000 entries this time. Besides the smaller projects of
Fuzer [Abauj-Torna], Monok [Zemplen] and Kisszeben [Saros], we also have some
additional data for Aranyosmeggyes [Szatmar] and Papa [Veszprem]. But the most
substential additions are the long awaited civil birth records for Kassa for the
years 1895-1915, and the huge Nyitra project - births only for now, marriages and
deaths are being readied for the next upload. A great big thank you goes for
these to Peter Absolon and Henry Wellisch respectively.

I would also like to remind our SIG members that if the new material will help in
the progress of your research, you can show your appreciation by making a small
donation towards further acquisitions.

Moderator: Many thanks to Sarah who has done a marvelous job coordinating this
effort and painstakingly reviewing the transcribed records before they are uploaded.
Volunteers like Sarah and those who transcribe records are essential to our effort
to continue to provide an outstanding resource for those researching their Hungarian
Jewish families. I you are unable to help transcribe records, please consider a
donation to allow us to continue acquiring new images >from archives overseas.

Re: "Kristallnacht" [A personal memoir] #germany

Eva Lawrence
 

On November 8th and 9th 1938, my father was travelling >from Stuttgart
to Frankfurt/Main. In December 1970 he described his experience in an
article which he called 'Report about the so-called Crystal Night in
Weinheim an der Bergstrasse'. Clearly the subject held painful
memories, but 30 years later he felt strong enough to face up to them.
I'm happy to send a copy to anyone who gives me their credentials.

(Germany) Israeli Genealogist Helps Find Family of Holocaust Victim Karolina Cohn After Silver Pendant Found In Sobibor Death Camp #general

Jan Meisels Allen
 

Last year archeologists found a silver pendant engraved with the name
Karolina Cohn, her birth date July 3, 1929 and birthplace at the former
death camp known as Sobibor ( see:
https://www.haaretz.com/israel-news/1.765056).

It also had the words "Mazel tov" and stars of David. She was 14 at the time
of her death. The Stolpersteine were placed at the entrance of the Frankfurt
home.

After reports of the discovery of the pendant, an Israeli amateur
genealogist began searching about her life and built a family tree based on
documents and photographs of her life, finding about dozens of people
related to her in Britain, Germany, Israel, the U.S. Italy and Japan. The
Jewish Claims Conference invited about 30 of the relatives for the
Stolpersteine ceremony and a reunion. These relatives had never known about
Karolina or her family before the pendant was found and the genealogist was
able to contact them

Nazi deportation lists helped the genealogists identify Karolina as the
owner of the pendant. According to Yad Vashem, she was banished from
Frankfurt to Minsk, Belarus on November 11, 1941. Nothing is known about her
after then, including whether she was murdered in Minsk and someone else
took the pendant who was sent to the death camp or Karolina was banished
to Sobibor in September 1943 when the Minsk ghetto was liquidated. The
pendant was found in the ruins of a hut where the women's hair was shaved
before being led to the gas chambers.

Re: uncle buried in Plashett cemetary #unitedkingdom

Tim Homewood
 

Hi Michael, as Annie said, you can search the burial records online,
on the United Synagogue website
https://www.theus.org.uk/category/find-grave

I had a quick look and couldn't find a record matching the names and
dates. The trick with this search is you have to get the spelling
exactly right (no wildcards) but you can also just enter the first few
letters of a name, eg "H", "Hy" and "Hym" will all return Hyman. There
aren't that many records for each cemetery and I searched for
firstname "H", surname "Y" for Plashet (no date). Have a look at the
names returned and see if maybe the date is wrong.

I've also found in the past that the online records aren't complete,
so you can ask the United Synagogue to see if they can help ( contact
details for the head of the Burial Society are on the website
https://www.theus.org.uk/article/about-us-burial-society-0 ). Though
Charles Tucker is still the record keeper, but I don't believe he is
involved with the burial records.

Regards,
Tim Homewood

Looking for cousins in NY #general

JUSTICEOFP
 

I have finally found one of my mother's half-brothers, Hyman ISRAEL. Hyman
was born in Baltimore, MD in 1914 and died in Brooklyn, NY on Dec. 22, 1957.
His death certificate listed his wife as Rita KATZ. According to his
gravestone in the Cedar Park Cemetery in Paramus, NJ, Hyman was also a
father.
Rita and her sisters-Johannah and Greda- were born in Germany. Her parents
and one of her sisters, Johannah KATZ NUGGET, are also buried in Cedar Park
Cemetery.
I can't seem to find out what happened to Rita or information about the
child or children they had.
Johannah had two sons, Michel W. NUGGET and Robert S. NUGGET. Robert may
be living in Forest Hills, NY. Her sons may have information for me and my
family.
I am hoping someone will help me connect to Hyman's child and/or children.

Thank you,
