Dear Vivian,

You mention more records >from Nireghaza. You also say that the FHL list is
dated. Do you know of these other records >from Nireghaza are being/have
been filed and just not included in the list online, or are the the numbers
available a the FHC?

Dear Peter,

You've asked some questions for which others who have recently begun
researching Hungarian Jewish roots may also need answers.

Hungary began civil registration in October 1895. Before then, vital
records were maintained by the Jewish community and turned over to the
authorities. One copy of these records was kept in the place where the
records were generated and the other was usually sent to the county
(megye). As a result, even though some of the local records were
destroyed during WWII, others that were kept in county, regional, or
national archives may have been preserved. The Mormon Family History
Library (FHL) has filmed many records >from pre-World War I Hungary, which
included areas that are in present-day Hungary as well as places that are
now in Slovakia, Romania, Ukraine, Yugoslavia, and other modern nations
surrounding Hungary. The first step in researching your roots is to find
out in which current nation your ancestors lived.

Check the FHL on-line catalogue to see if they have filmed Jewish records
from the places where your relatives lived. You can search a somewhat
dated version of the FHL collection of Jewish records at
http://www.jewishgen.org/databases/FHLC/
You should also search the surnames and places that you are researching in
the JewishGen Hungary Database (JHD)
< http://www.jewishgen.org/databases/Hungary >.

If you have family >from areas that are in present-day Hungary or Slovakia,
you may be able to obtain records by writing to the Hungarian or Slovak
National Archives. Check the Hungarian SIG message archives and website
for current addresses. Your research will be more difficult if your
family came >from parts of pre-Trianon Hungary that are now in Romania or
the Ukraine. The FHL has microfilmed most of the 1848 Jewish Census
records that are held by the Hungarian National
Archives, but we continue to find records in regional archives
(Nyireghaza and Satorjaujhely, for example) and archives in Romania.
We know that there are other census and Jewish vital records in Romanian
and Ukrainian archives. JewishGen is continuing to try and obtain these
records and get permission to create indices that we can publish on-line.

In addition to searching the JewishGen Hungary Database (JHD), you should
send messages to the Hungarian SIG mailing list to find out if anyone is
researching your names and/or places or can suggest other resources. We
have more than 800 members in more than a dozen countries and many of them
are fluent in Hungarian. Make sure to use a meaningful subject line (e.g.
Searching KAHAN/Sziget) and include your place of residence with your full
name. This will help folks to identify resources
that are available close to where you live. Also, make sure to
turn off SPAM blockers to allow H-SIG members to reach you.

Please feel free to contact me off-line or, if your questions might be of
general interest, through the Hungarian SIG discussion group.

Happy hunting!

Hello.

I'm a beginner and have some very basic questions (left unanswered by the
recommended and other Internet resources).

Is it correct that a State Registrar was introduced in Hungary in the
1890s replacing those held by the various religious communities?
If yes, what has become of the Jewish registries ?

What are the means to consult the registries in modern Hungary ?

What happened to the registries in the districts lost by Hungary at
Trianon? In case they were left to the post-Trianon local
administrations, how can they be consulted in Romania and Slovakia ?

Many thanks for your help.

Yes, Robert´s conclusion is right.
in war-time Hungary the record books till 1944 according according the order
of Ministry of Interior Andor Jaross hade been delivered to the local or
county archive.
Those records and all other on the teritory of all today Slovakia are kept
in county archives.

By The State Archive Administration of Slovak Ministry of Interior a
"Register of Registers" about all records of all religious communities -
diferent Christian denominations, Jewish etc. - was issued showing where
their records ar kept. It is a 400 pages book.
If anybody is interested to know where the record books of cities - villages
of today Slovakia are kept. I am ready let to know and advice the contact

It is >from these copies that the FHL films were made.

I understand that the Hungarian Jewish Archives in
Budapest has a collection of the originals.

Neither set seems to be complete.

As far as we know each country got the records for

The FHL is filming in Slovakia, so at some point more

WWI military research #austria-czech

Irene Newhouse <einew@...>
 

In his autobiography "In the Nick of Time", my distant cousin Max HEITLINGER
describes his brother-in-law Richard Moschkowitz thus: "Bielitz was the
headquarters of the Infantry Regiment Number 55; many young men
volunteered... Among them was Richard, Nelly's brother, who soon advanced
to lieutenant." He goes on to say, "he got one of the first gold medals of
valour..." for an action on the Italian front, where he turned captured
Italian cannons back on their original owners.

It would seem this should be a fairly well documented event, but I need
advice on how to go about looking for it. I've found on the internet that in
1914 the 55th was in Lemburg [now L'viv] & the 13th was in Bielitz, but I
don't know what to make of that fact, other than perhaps the author's memory
was erroneous after all that time.

Thanks for any help in advance!

Mordechai ZACKHEIM-Pinsk 19th cent. #rabbinic

ben-ari <yrcdi@...>
 

Several months ago I posted a request as to descendants of Rabbi
Mordechai ZACKHEIM of Ruzhinoi and Pinsk during the 19th cent. I
was forwarded to George Sackheim editor of the ZACKHEIM family tree,
"Scattered Seeds," and he gave me the names of the only descendants
known to him, a Bella and Mordechai MAKOVSKY, last known address
Holon, Israel. It seems that this couple is no longer "with us,"
and I haven't yet been able to track down their descendants.

Is there anyone out there that are descendants of the above
Mordechai ZACKHEIM?

Thanks in advance
Best Wishes,

Yoni Ben-Ari, Efrat, Israel

PS. I would appreciate suggestions regarding possible contacts, but
please make sure that those contacts are likely to have the specific
information I mentioned above

Several months ago I posted a request as to descendants of Rabbi
Mordechai ZACKHEIM of Ruzhinoi and Pinsk during the 19th cent. I
was forwarded to George Sackheim editor of the ZACKHEIM family tree,
"Scattered Seeds," and he gave me the names of the only descendants
known to him, a Bella and Mordechai MAKOVSKY, last known address
Holon, Israel. It seems that this couple is no longer "with us,"
and I haven't yet been able to track down their descendants.

Is there anyone out there that are descendants of the above
Mordechai ZACKHEIM?

Thanks in advance
Best Wishes,

Yoni Ben-Ari, Efrat, Israel
