I found this website:
http://www.hadifogoly.hu/search
They ask for
- vezeteknev = last name
- keresztnev = given name
- szuletesi ev = year of birth
The database does not contain names of survivors, only names of the deceased. But it does bring up data >from forced labour battalions.

As an aside to my previous post, we did a search for the brother of my father-in-law (Ferenc FEUERSTEIN) and nothing came up, even though by the account of an eye witness he died of typhoid fever during his service. But what is even more bizarre is the fact that his father (Lajos FEUERSTEIN) was taken to Auschwitz together with his wife on the same train, and she survived (I knew her and talked with her about their experiences), yet a search at Arolsen that I initiated a year ago was not successful in finding anything on him. We just got a letter >from them a few months ago that there is absolutely no record of him anywhere. Any thoughts...?

there was a searchable database of the hungarian casualties of ww2
online at <http://www.netlap.hu/vasarnapiujsag/hosok.htm>, which
included many of those who died in the forced labour battalions, but
unfortunately, it's no longer accessible, and i couldn't find it
using google.

is this file available anywhere else?

Dear All,
I may have found my aunt's family in Montevideo Uruguay I attempted to call
and with my very rudimentary Spanish I was able to speak very briefly. My
question is if any one has made contact with family did you hire a translator?
Please help I'm very excited about this break through.They do not have e-mail .
Any other suggestions would be most helpful.
thanks

Most cemetery #austria-czech

John and Nora Freund <jonora@...>
 

Can someone give me directions to the old Jewish cemetery in Most? I know
the town was razed and a new one built nearby, but have been told that the
cemetery, or at least some of it still exists. How do i find it?
Thanks,
Nora Freund, Toronto

Re: Finding gravestones - a high tech solution #austria-czech

Ron Herrmann <ron_herrmann@...>
 

Thomas,

You have a very good idea! It will be great if all burial data was available on-line, including the ability to
update contact information for living relatives.

But a better idea is to use a GPS-type device that will tell you were to go to get to the grave you are looking
for.

I will not claim that I am an expert in this, but as much as I know, currently, GPS is only accurate with 50
feet, 25 meters. This is changing! Soon, it will be accurate within inches. You will even be able to locate the
water pipe that runs to your house and dig exactly where it was buried.


P/S: being an Israeli, I can tell you that for the most part, the burial information in Israel is on-line, and
they even let you correct records (e.g. wrong spelling of names and dates). But, you can not update contact
information...

My Obernik ancestors #austria-czech

katsor <katsor@...>
 

With the help of Celia Male I found two out of 4 siblings of my grandmother,
Stefanie OBERNIK. However, the remaining two - Ana Obernik and Marie
OBERNIK - are a complete mystery. Equally so, it is a mystery where their
parents, Adolf and Augusta OBERNIK, were buried. As far as I can make out,
they lived in Prague 5, where they ran a hardware business, which they
eventually handed over to my grandmother and her husband, Emanuel KRAUS. I
have searched everywhere, trying to find their final resting place, but to
no avail. As they were born 1854 and 1962 respectively, I imagine that they
passed away well before the Nazis came to Prague.
Anyone has any idea?
I would very much appreciate any clues.
