Kaufer/Steinlauf #galicia

Stuart Kaufer
 

I have been searching for Kaufer family and have had limited success.
I recently came across more data:

My Great Grandfather was Salomon Kaufer (spelling >from his gravestone).
He died in 1919. My GGM was Rebecca Steinlauf Kaufer and she died in
1918. Family lore was that they came >from Austria. It has recently come
to my attention that they may have originated in Mokrzyska Malopolskie.
Salomon's father >from gravestone, son of Moses Kaufer.

My paternal GF Edward Kaufer never discussed his family; still not sure
exactly how many sibs he had. Never heard any mention of his mother's
family. My father who is now deceased would have no recollection of his
grandparents as he was born in 1916, 2-3 years before they both died.

There is a Michael Kaufer who married Lillian; no other information.
Kalman Kaufer buried in same plot as my GGparents with no wife; cannot
find anything in Ancestry or other places. I have recently learned of a
Frieda Kaufer who married a Blonder born in 1841 and died in Chicago in
1909. All of my Kaufer relatives appear to have settled in Chicago and
these are buried in Waldheim.

Any assistance would be appreciated. Thank you.

Re: Visit JewishGen’s New Website!

Rachel Kolokoff Hopper <r-hopper@...>
 

Hi Ariel,

Thanks for that feedback.

After reading some more about the groups.io digest options this is what I have learned.

1) In order to reply to a message that is in either of the digest options you will have to use the website. You will not be able to use your email client (as you have already figured out!)

2) In the Daily Summary (which sends a once-daily list of topics posted that day) and unlike the full featured digests, the summary does not include the text of any of the messages, only the list of topics. So in this case you have to go to the website to read the messages and post a reply.

3) Full Featured Digest will group the days messages into batches of 12 and send each batch when the twelfth is posted. Any that remain at the end of the day will be sent as the final (or only) digest of the day. The digests include the full text of each message, omitting any quotes of prior messages. Full Featured Digests include, at the top, a list of the enclosed topics, clickable as links to take you to that topic on the website. Again, you would have to reply using the website.

4) However, if you wish to create a new message or a reply to a message that is NOT sent as part of the digest, you should be able to use your email client and address your message to: main@JewishGen.groups.io

Hi Rachel,
In the daily summary I don't have a link to reply to a post. In fact, I don't even have the text of the posts, just the titles with a link to the server.
I've just changed the options to full digest (but it's limited to 12 messages). I'll check tomorrow if I have the option to reply.
In any case, a lot of people currently uses the daily summary at JG that features all the messages of the day in just one mail. I think that the daily summary option will be widely chosen and people will get confused by not having the messages directly on their mail and no option to reply. 

On the other side, I've tried to create a new post directly from my mail and also tried to reply a previous one but changing the subject to a specific topic and removing the full contents of the previous post.
In both cases I've got a Failure Message : 
500: You have replied to a digest message, which is not permitted. Please click on the 'Reply to this message' link under the message you'd like to reply to, and you will be taken to a page to enter your reply.
So there's no possibility to create new posts or reply to messages by replying directly to a mail.

Best,
Ariel

Information on Romanian Jew buried in Vienna around 1938 #romania

Ricardo Costin <ricardo.e.costin@...>
 

Hello!

I have been searching for my great uncle's burial information or death
certificate for an ongoing asset repossession process.

Oscar Calmanovici was born in Bacau, Romania around 1880 and died in
Vienna, Austria around 1938. It is known in the family that he was
buried in a Jewish Cemetery in Vienna. I have searched on JewishGen
burial registry and tried to check online the Cemeteries in Vienna,
but couldn't get useful information. I tried other websites as well
but had no success. I would like to open the topic for collective
experience, collaboration and wisdom.

Oscar's parents were Hers and Misca (Minna) Calmanovici born Leib.
Hers and three others founded the Grain Merchant's synagogue in Bacau
in 1899, the only one surviving today >from 22 that existed before WW2.

Oscar was married to Rosa Calmanovici and had two children: Romeo
Calmanovici e Lucia Clara Darvas. His siblings are: Zisu Calmanovici,
Emmanuel Calmanovici, Moritz Calmanovici, Isac Calmanovici, Tony Klein
(born Calmanovici) and Joseph Calmanovici.

Please, share any findings you may have. I thank you in advance for
your collaboration!

Regards,

(Hungary) MyHeritage DNA Study Reveals Hungary Has World's Second Largest Percentage of Population with Jewish (Ashkenazi) Ethnicity #dna

Jan Meisels Allen
 

A new study MyHeritage DNA did with Dr. Daniel Staetsky, a statistician and
demographer uncovered the number of people descended >from Jewish ancestors
in Hungary is higher than other demographers have previously estimated.

The first study of its kind revealed that the country with the highest
proportion of Ashkenazi Jewish ethnicity after Israel was Hungary. It was
previously thought it was the United States. The study showed: After Israel,
the top countries in terms of significant Ashkenazi Jewish ethnicity were
Hungary and Russia, followed by Argentina, South Africa, Ukraine, and then
the USA. The analysis was a cohort of 1.8 million anonymized DNA tests
taken by MyHeritage customers worldwide. The study included 100 countries.

A much lower percentage of people in Hungary, who self-identify as being
Jews, is substantially lower compared with the DNA test-takers, even after
adjusting for a degree of selectivity of MyHeritage users (most educated and
well to do classes since commercial genetic testing which is more likely to
be used by those cohorts.) It is also assumed that more Hungarian Jews
assimilated into the local population before the Holocaust, more Hungarians
survived the Holocaust than Jews in Poland, and more Jews remained in
Hungary than in Poland following the Holocaust.

Jews have a long history in Hungary dating back to at least the early 13th
century. By the early 20th century Jews constituted 5 % of Hungary's total
population and Jews comprised 23% of Budapest. (These are not MyHeritage's
numbers.) By 1941, over 17% of Budapest's Jews were Roman Catholic converts,
following coordinated pressure across Europe that began with the Spanish
Inquisition in the late 15th century. Over 560,000 Hungarian Jews were
murdered in Holocaust.

The MyHeritage study also revealed Russia having many more people with
Jewish ethnicity than demographers expected.

ethnicity see:
