Bessarabia/Romania. Harry came to the US with his parents prior to 1910 and
resided in New York City (Manhattan) NY. He was a boxer and later on he
became a flourist. I am searching for any information on his boxing career.
Would be professional boxing. Thanks in advance.

Date of death of SCHLESINGER Katalin #hungary

Georges Graner
 

Dear Siggers,
Could you help m to solve an irritating puzzle.
Here are the facts.
In 1946, I was 13 and lived in France with my parents. I remember
vividly that at the end of summer, my father learned the death of his
mother SCHLESINGER Katalin, widow of GRANER David, in Budapest. I
have never known the precise date of this death but it is associated
in my mind to several other events of this period that I don't want
to detail here.

Very recently, a genealogist in Budapest found in the records of the
Orthodox Jewish Community of Budapest a death record of my gm, dated
of January 13, 1948, i.e. 16 or 17 months later that what I thought.
Moreover, he also found the grave and he sent me the picture. One can
clearly read the Hebrew date corresponding to January 13, 1948.

I am only two explanations, but both are bad !!
First explanation: for some reason, the Orthodox Jews write down a
date which is not the death date ????
Second explanation : the news of the death were reported to my father
after a delay of 6 months, i.e. July 1948 and not 1946 as I remember ????

I asked several times the Hungarian genealogist to try to find the
record at the City Hall but for some reason, he did not try. I
vaguely remember that she lived in Dobb utca. What is the
corresponding "kerulet" ? Can you give me the address of the City Hall.

T.I.A.

Jewish Names in Registers #hungary

peter bakos <pgbakos@...>
 

Hello,

In my limited experience, I know that in some registers there are to be
found next to the given name of the newly born child are to be found Hebrew
characters. For those of us unable to read Hebrew this is a real tragedy
for this is the Jewish given name of the child as opposed to the Secular
given name which appears.
For the registers of Budapest that are microfilmed and found at the National
Archives (and the LDS film library) it is possible to copy these Hebrew
names and get them transliterated into Roman characters. Unfortunately, the
registers at Sip street are not so accessible and the caretakers there, on
the one occaision that I asked, had to track down a Rabbi to translate the
name for me. I hope we are able to convince Sip street to microfilm, or
better, digitise their archive.

Kindertransport- Great Wyrley- Christadelphians #unitedkingdom

Dear UK Siggers,
I am still looking for my relative Rolf Simon
KOENIGSBUCH who was born in Hamburg in 1929 and was
on the Kindertransport.
I just learned that in the early 1950s he was at the
British Army and his last residence registered with
them was at the "Beldevere" on Norton Road in Great
Wyrley,Staffs.
I contacted the webmaster of the Great Wyrley
community page who remembers the place >from his
childhood in the 1960s. He remembers that there was an
elderly couple who were members of the Christadelphian
Church and who had a young tenant living with them in
the 1950s.
Considering the involvement of the Christadelphians
with the Kindertransport it makes sense.
I would appreciate any comment or suggestion how to
procede.
I had a long correspondence with the Ass.of Jewish
Refugees in London and got >from them whatever they
could disclose until 1948.

INTRO- Georg VOLTZ 1612-1670, Wuerttemberg #germany

Ms Sarah Walls <walnut1946@...>
 

Hello,
I am a novice at researching in Germany and am intermediate at using the internet
and a computer e.g. people are always suggesting that I cut and paste
something or other but I don't know how. I know only English with a little bit
of Hebrew. I live in St Petersburg, Florida, in the United States.

My primary purpose for this posting is to learn what I can of other family
members of or the grandparents of Georg VOLTZ and his wife Margaretha HORCH of
Wuerttemberg, Kreis, Neckar, Germany.

Georg VOLTZ was born in 1612 and died in 1670. I have his son listed
as Johann Jacob VOLTZ born 1667 and died 1735 and he was married to Maria
Margaretha DIEHM. This family lived in this area and the surrounding villages of
Grossgarttach.

I have an idea that the VOLTZ line in my family is derived >from my last name of
WALLS but of course I may be wrong but I have seen this name spelled VOLZ which
isn't so far away in pronunciation >from WALLS.

And I have a very strong feeling based on I don't know
what that we are Sephardic Jews.

I got this information I am listing here >from a VOLTZ researcher whom I do not
know so I cannot personally verify the data.

I am looking forward to getting to know all of you and hope in the future I may
be of help to you in your research.
