Hi Deborah,

A few days ago I didn't have an answer to your question, however after finding
a new site, I think you may have a hit. I'm posting to the group because I
feel it may be of use for others researching the Transylvanian area.

Go to http://www.rotravel.com/sit/map/index.htm
Click on Satu Mare County
Look between the towns of Carei and Tasnad, near the River Erin and you will
spot a little town called Cauas (say Ka-oo-ah-sh). This may be what you are
looking for, as it is situated in the valley between two mountains (hills,
rather). In the old name Hegykozkovacs, 'hegykoz' means in between mountains.

Please know that in the last 50 years, county boundaries have changed back and
forth and some places that were at one time in Bihor County may well be today
in Satu Mare, Salaj, or even Cluj Counties.

Same holds true for names of smaller villages. "Cauas" is closer to "kovacs"
than Cauaceu (say Ka-oo-ah-chay-oo) and anyway, in Roumanian language, the
"ceu" is a suffixlike definite pronoun indicating masculin gender.

My best,

Susan Geroe

* Books on Hungary at LDS #hungary

Tom Venetianer <tom.vene@...>
 

Dear all,

I just came accross of the following page:

http://www.acronet.net/~magyar/english/96-07/tortknyv.html

which list a number of very interesting books covering Hungary and
Hungarian Jewry, which can be found at the LDS library. I can't reach them
here in Brazil, but maybe some of you can. I hope this is useful.

b'Shalom
Tom

BTW, I am looking for a book published by Avotaynu, called

Sourcebook for Jewish Genealogies and Family Histories
by David Zubatsky and Irwin Berent

If somebody has it or can have access to it, please let me know in private.

Many thanks


1848 Census error #hungary

Michael <tex@...>
 

Arthur Kurzweil's Encyclopedia of Jewish Genealogy lists the LDS numbers for
the 1848 census.

I ordered the number he listed for Hajdu county and found it to be incorrect.

When I checked the book with the librarian we noticed that the number was
out of sequence with the other numbers in the census. So I ordered the
number that seemed logical considering the other numbers. Another mistake.

Does anyone know if the Hajdu portion of the 1848 census is extant and on film?

I don't see it included in Debbi Korman's listing in the contents of the
census on the H-SIG web site. But I believe that I found it listed on the
LDS computer and ordered that number too which was also incorrect.

PS. Debbi's List:

Bekes and Bihar - 719,823

Also on 719,823 are the census pages for the free cities of Debreczen,
Eperjes (Presov), Gyongyos, Gyor, Miskolcz, Modor (now Modra, close to
Bratislava), Nagy-Szombat (Trnava), Szakolcza (now Skalica near Nitra),
Trenscen, Ujvidek, Temesvar and Zombor.

Esztergom, Baranya, Csanad, Csongrad, Fejer, Gyor, Komarom,
Kozep-Snolnok (later Szilagy) - 719,824

Krasso, Kraszna (later Szilagy), Marmaros, Moson, Szabolcs, Tolna -
719,825

Trenscen, Turocz, Ung - 719,826

Vas, Veszprem - 719,827

Zala - 719,828

Have a look. If you have a success story, feel free to

We enjoy reading these as it shows that we are doing

This SIG List has a new HOME! #lithuania

Susan E. King <susan.king@...>
 

During the early morning hours, this SIG Discussion group, along with all
the others have been fully migrated over to a new JewishGen server which is
set up specifically for handling mailing lists. Anyone posting to this
list during the migration period probably experienced a "your are not
subscribed to this list message". You probably caught us in the process of
moving the subscriber list >from one machine to the other. <grin>

To post to this list, send email to: litvaksig@...

To unsubscribe, send email to: listserv@...
unsubscribe litvaksig

PLEASE NOTE the change in the address >from "MAIL.jewishgen.org " to
"LYRIS.jewishgen.org". (in caps only for emphasis)
This simply references a change in machines that is handling the requests.

The Lyris software has many variations on a theme, with some unsubscribing
instructions appearing at the bottom of each message. BOTH options will
WORK so not to worry! <grin> We have also migrated the WEBFORM on the
JewishGen site to handle the subscribe and unsubscribe requests as well if
you prefer to use it.

The purpose of this message is to advise you NOT to panic if you see
different things. You can use whatever you are more comfortable with, 1)
you can follow the instructions posted on the bottom of the message or 2)
you can use the WEBFORM on the JewishGen site or 3) you can use the same
command language you have used in the past.

Over the course of the next few weeks, we will be training the list
administrators for each SIG mailing list on the features they need to know
to manage the mailing lists more effectively. We will also be making the
subscribers aware of a host of new features available to you as well. We
will try to do this in an orderly and effective manner so as not to cause
to much disruption on the day to day operation of each of the mailing
lists. Whatever had worked for you in the past should continue to work for
you... so implementing the new features are OPTIONAL at this point.

JewishGen will have several trained volunteers who will be able to answer
any questions regarding the new server software. There are many new
features built in for which we will make you aware as soon as we have
completed our final testing and evaluation period.

For now, we simply wanted to make the migration in an "as is" basis.

If you experience any problems, please direct them to:
techsupport@...

We apologize for any inconvenience this may have caused... but once all the
features are fully implemented, we believe >from both sides of the fence we
will all enjoy the results this new software and server have to offer.

On behalf of a very weery JewishGen support team... <grin>
