New Book: "Genealogical Gazetteer of the Kingdom of Hungary" #romania

Gary Mokotoff (Optonline) <garymokotoff@...>
 

Avotaynu has just published a "Genealogical Gazetteer of the Kingdom of
Hungary." It provides information about more than 12,000 towns within the
19th-century borders of the Kingdom of Hungary that today comprise regions
of Austria, Croatia, Hungary, Romania, Serbia, Slovenia, Slovak Republic and
Ukraine. For each community, information by religion is provided for the
population. If there was no synagogue (or church), the town where each
congregation worshiped is indicated. This is key to identifying the Roman
Catholic diocese, the church of record for the events of all faiths,
including Jewish, prior to civil registration in the 1850s. It is also
useful in searching possible places of burial. Additional information about
each town includes alternate names and its current name if no longer in
Hungary. Towns can be searched alphabetically by their current name, former
name or alternate name(s).

The author is Jordan Auslander of the New York Jewish Genealogical Society.
Auslander spent more than five years compiling the information which was
based on the 1877 gazetteer, "Magyarorszag Helysegnevtara" (Hungarian
Gazetteer), by Janos Dvorzsak.

For additional information, go to http://www.avotaynu.com/books/hungary.htm.
At the site is the Table of Contents, a sample page >from the gazetteer, and
a sample page >from the appendix which provides contemporary names for towns
in the former Kingdom of Hungary.


MODERATOR NOTE: This is a one time commercial announcement and appears on this
list because parts of Romania were once Hungary.

bouncing e-mails ??? #romania

Folks,
When a message you send to another researcher listed in the JGFF or FTJP,
fails to be delivered, please report the bounce to
<lostNfound@...>. In your message, provide your own full
name and JGID, and the name and JGID of the person with the bounced e-mail.

Under the leadership of Saul Goldstone we have a considerable group of
volunteers who contact people in their local area who have changed their
e-mail addresses but have neglected to notify JewishGen. The ability to
connect with another researcher who may have a connection to your own
research is vital and the reason we established the lostNfound help desk.

If you are willing to devote some time to helping in this effort, please
contact Saul at
<sgoldstone@...> and provide him with your home address and
specify the towns to which you are willing to make phone calls. These can
be as wide an area as you like. Please consider joining in the effort to
find all researchers who are lost.

Many thanks for helping with this.

Sherry Kisos <smwwk770@...>
 

Dear All,

I would like to know if anyone knows anything about
this town which was once in Romania (not too far from
the Dneister). In Where Once We Walked, there are
several variations on the name.

I am looking for a Landsmanschaft or anyone who
remembers being there, memories, pictures, etc.

Victoria, BC Records, KIRCHHEIMER #general

Hanna K. Grossman <hannakg@...>
 

My great uncle Gustav KIRCHHEIMER born in Baden 1859, traveled >from England to
Victoria, BC in 1897 with young 2nd wife and 2 small children. A 3rd child was
born to the couple in Victoria in 1901. He was naturalized in 1901 or 1902.

I have found Gustav in city directories through about 1920, know he traveled back
and forth to Europe several times during this period, and that he died I Nice,
France in 1934. At that time he was accompanied by his divorced first wife.

I have not found any trace of the 2nd wife or the 3 children . They are not
recorded as dying or getting married in BC, nor, as far as I can tell, as entering
the US, nor do they show up on US censuses .

I would appreciate any suggestions of Victoria or BC records on which they might
appear (schools, hospitals, courts, etc.) and how to access those, particularly
from a distance. If there are useful sounding resources, which cannot be accessed
from a distance, I would consider hiring someone to search those data bases.
The information which I have was largely provided by Jewishgen volunteers and I
remain grateful, but unsatisfied. I will be happy to provide more details(ie the
names and birth dates of the wife and children) to anyone who is interested.

MALAMUD/Warsaw #general

Marilyn F <mrl516@...>
 

I am trying to locate siblings of Israel MALAMUD born in Varsovia (Warsaw Poland).
Israel went to Palestine at the age of about 19 and at the age of 21 immigrated to
the US to a cousin, Chiam SCHAFFER, in Atlanta, Georgia. He had a brother, David
(Doddie) who he kept in touch with up till the 1960's.
One of Israel's brother's(either David or Abraham) lived in Tashkent.
Israel's parents were Labe and Sura SCHLAFFER Malamud. His siblings would have
been born >from about 1893 to about 1910. His sisters were Tsepa and Rachel. I
heard that Rachel also came to the US, but I haven't been able to find her. This
family is one big mystery to me. I am eager to find them, but I'm stumped!
Thanks for any suggestions.
