Information regarding Claims Conference Records #hungary

ajsmith98@...
 

Hi Everyone,

I recently returned to New York >from another fruitful trip to
Israel. I made one interesting research
discovery that I think will be of interest to the group.

I would like to provide new information on the database
collection called the ?Claims Conference, Hungary?. This searchable database is
included in the All Hungarian Database. I discovered that the names listed in the
Claims Conference database appears to have originated >from individual files that
still exist at the Central Zionist Archive.
These lists were compiled by the Jewish Agency of people requesting to
make aliyah. The majority of these requests were made in 1944 and they appear to
be last ditch efforts to evacuate loved ones >from Europe. Titles >from the lists
include ?Special Cases? or Emergency Cases?. It is likely that
the large majority of these individuals were sent to concentration camps and did
not succeed in making aliyah.

I will provide two examples >from my own family. I had one cousin who was living in Mandate
Palestine in 1939. Her mother and siblings stayed in Europe. In July 1944, she
made a request to the Jewish Agency to bring her mother to Palestine. I located
the original file for her aliyah request which included a number of details about
the person trying to make aliyah. In another instance, I had a relative who was
part of the Beitar Movement in Budapest. He had no known close relatives in Israel
. His name also appeared on more than one list for aliyah. When I obtained his file, there was a single page form with his name on it without any
additional information. In this case, his file did not provide any new information about my relative in question.

These files can best be searched in person in Israel but can also be accessed by
email request through the Central Zionist Archives.

Take care,

Adam Smith

Re: Hungarian Treasures #hungary

I have read with delight that not one but two entries have been found on Herzl
technically at the same time. I understand that his birth record is on its way to be
posted on JewishGen. As for the marriage data that David Laufer found, I wonder if
that could be included anywhere, - it would be nice if it was. :)

In case there is a way to make that entry somehow part of our database, please,
note that his Hungarian name is actually Tivadar, Hungarian for Theodor.

List of Jews from Mosonmagyarovar #hungary

henry.kelwel@...
 

Earlier this year I sent a message to this discussion group about my
discovery in the archives of the Holocaust Museum in Washington of a
1944 list of Jews >from Mosonmagyarovar. Shortly thereafter someone
contacted me and informed me that he also had this list and was
planning to construct a database >from it. Unfortunately I lost the
address of this person. So, if anyone knows about this matter please
contact me privately.

To clarify, the Adar leap year is 7 times in 19 years, not anything as
regular as once in four years (that's the English calendar).

One should remember that Adar Alef and Adar Bet occur only once in 4
years.
So if you know the YEAR you can find if that was a "leap year" or not.
Maybe the whole question will be solved if you find that the specific
year was NOT a leap year,
and there is one one Adar month in that year.

Last week the Jewish Museum Munich opened its new exhibition "Places of Exile
03: Munich and Washington Heights". The third exhibition in the series
"Places of Exile" provides an insight into the New York neighbourhood of
Washington Heights, which during the 1930s became a center of German Jewish
Immigration.

Here, immigrants >from southern Germany, together with Rabbi Dr. Leo Baerwald,
last rabbi of Munich's main synagogue destroyed in 1938, founded congregation

The exhibition "Munich and Washington Heights" presents this New York

Philly2009 - Banquet Announcement #lithuania

David Mink
 

We are delighted to announce that the entertainment for the Philly2009
Banquet will be Yisrael Campbell -- widely regarded as a premiere
standup comedian in Israel -- he's an original and erudite comedian
who has lived in Jerusalem and now lives in New York City. However,
the journey that led Yisrael to The Holy Land began a long time ago
in a place far, far away: he actually was born "Christopher Campbell,"
raised Catholic, and grew up in Philadelphia. For more about Yisrael,
see his website at www.yisraelcampbell.com or check under "program" at
www.philly2009.org

Yisrael will certainly entertain us ---laughing will be a wonderful
way to end the very hectic conference week. We are lucky that he has
agreed to be with us. This is a banquet you will not want to miss!
It will take place on Thursday, August 6.

If you have already registered, and want to add 1 or more banquet
tickets to your registration, please go to the conference website,
www.philly2009.org and click on "Registration Update." You will need
the login and password you received when you registered. Once you are
logged in, click on "optional program" at the left.... you will then
see all the possible optional programs and can select those you want.
You may bring a guest who is not registered for the conference to the
banquet.

If you have not registered, please do so now and sign up for optional
programs while there is still space. You may check on-site to see if
any tickets are still available for different optional programs ( but
you may not be able to obtain what you want if they are all gone).

See you there!

Galicia Towns #poland

EEllman@...
 

I am trying to pinpoint where my great grandparents, Oscar STERN
and Fradel (SZRENZIL) STERN are from. The information I have shows
that in 1871 they lived in Narajow, in 1877 they lived in Piniaki,
and in the 1880s and 1890s they lived in Rykow and Narajow.
According to JewishGen, these towns have multiple combinations
of possibilities. I assume they are all not too far >from each
other, but I am having a hard timing pinning down the correct
towns. Any suggestions?
