new oroklet website #hungary

tom
 

the oroklet website, <http://www.ororklet.hu/>, has been given a facelift.

the new version seems to be all in hungarian (watch out for names with diacriticals),
and its white-on-black theme threw me for a bit of a loop. (i'm not used to typing
my input in white on white, or viewing results in black on black; this may be an is
sue with my browser/version.) i didn't see any wildcard or soundex options, and it
also says that the search function only returns the first 15 hits.

Try the archives at the YIVO institute for Jewish Research in New York.
Their website is www.yivo.org/research. I know they have records
of burial and benevolent societies.

Most or all of these have shut down as the original immigrants died and
their kids didn't have any interest in keeping them going.

But what happened to all of their records?

Did someone acquire them or did they simply end up in a landfill?
I have no idea.

Can anyone make some suggestions where to look ?

Many thanks

Samuel OPPENHEIMER-HEIDELBERG (died Vienna 1703) #general

David Dubin <davidmdubin@...>
 

Hi all,
Please help me clear up a discrepancy.
Most online trees have the mother of the 'shtadlan' Samuel
OPPENHEIMER's children as Sandela (Gentille) de CARCASSONE (died 1705
in Vienna). However, Michael Berolzheimer's papers in the Leo Baeck
Institute (chapter 7 pp 84-87; pp 644-647 in the .pdf file, 683-686
for the English translation) states clearly several times that Sandela
was Samuel's second wife who only bore Samuel one daughter. He claims
that Samuel's first wife (name unknown, died 11 Mar 1673) was the
mother of his other children.
I cannot find Berolzheimer's footnotes anywhere in the file, so I
don't know the source. Does anyone have this information?
Thank you.

Gravestone translations #general

Paulino Pardo Arroyo <paulinopardo@...>
 

Hello members;

As I've been recently put in charge of the maintenance of Charlotte
Zweig entry in Find a Grave website.  I'm in the quest to translate
Stefan Zweig's ans Lotte's graves inscriptions, I would really
appreciate if anyone could help me with the task, at the same time I'll
be more than glad to provide JewishGen with the photos (taken by me, so
no copyright involved) and plot info that I realized your database lacks.

Feel free to take the info here:

https://www.findagrave.com/memorial/128440345/charlotte-elizabeth-zweig

https://www.findagrave.com/memorial/19895/stefan-zweig

Otherwise provide means to send the graphics

Looking forward hearing >from you

Thanks in advance!

Vilna Marriage Record 1887 #general

David Goldman
 

Hello, Jewishgenners. We have one source in our family that my
great-grandparents Yale Yeselev Shapiro and Leah Avramovna Kabakov who lived
in Surazh on the border area today of Russia next to Belarus were married on
November 12, 1887 in Vilna. That they would have been married so far away
from Surazh sounds totally implausible given the distances involved. But
just to be sure I wanted to be able to check for any marriage record. What
would be the easiest way to find out about any record of a marriage in Vilna
on November 1887?
Thanks,
David Goldman
