Belarus Revision Lists #belarus

I am trying to find the page link that belongs with FHL 1792210,
NHAB Minsk/333/9/906, registration number 553.32. The Belarus SIG
link brings me to the correct microfilm, but I don't know how to
identify the registration number. I don't read Cyrillic, but
figured that the registration number would guide me. I would
appreciate someone guiding me through this process.
Thank you,

Researching Agnes Kiss and Benjamin Toth #hungary

My name is Bill White and I am an American citizen living in the
United Kingdom. My JGFF Researcher ID number is 670714.

I am researching my great, great grandmother and her husband. Their
names were Agnes Kiss (or Klein) and Benjamin Toth and I have
information that suggests they lived in Hungary, although I don't have
a town/city name. Both are listed within the Yad Vashem database as
having been murdered by the Nazis at the beginning of the war, but
very little is known.

Together they had at least one daughter, Julia Toth (married Simon)
and I am hoping that someone out there will have some record of both
of my GG grandparents together, which will allow me to trace their
birth records.

I can be reached by email wiljamwhite@gmail.com or my telephone on <snip>
anytime. Also, I have set up a Facebook Group for Jews
from Hungary at https://www.facebook.com/groups/jewsfromhungary.
Yours sincerely,

INTRO - researching EISENSTADT family from (latterly) Berlin #germany

russell eisen <ella99@...>
 

Hello GerSig,

Sorry - it's taken me a few weeks to write this since I just joined the
group, but here goes. I have been doing genealogy research for around
4 years now, although I still consider myself to be a beginner in doing
German Jewish Genealogy research. Not least as I speak no German myself
so have difficulty with translations.

I currently live in London, UK. I consider myself reasonably intermediate
/advanced in using a computer, as I use it every day for work. My
experience in using the Internet is extensive.

My primary research goal is to help fill in the blanks for my father
in terms of the family history, lost when they left Berlin in 1938.

A short background on the EISENSTADT family history, leading to one
question and one crucial impasse I've now reached.

My great-great-great grandfather Israel Tuvia EISESTADT, buried in Warsaw,
wrote a book, Da'at Kedoshim, published 1897 in Russia tracing various
families, including the EISENSTADTS. Using this and other documents
I've managed to re-construct most the family tree, although I've not
yet uploaded to JGFF.

My JGFF Researcher ID number is 353851.

My great-great grandfather Abraham EISENSTADT was Cantor to the Jewish
community in Berlin >from around 1890 to 1910. He published a collection
of liturgies called Alt-israelitische Gesange I and II, published in
Berlin, 1897. I've tried to find out more details about his life as a
Cantor, but have not managed to turn anything up. The Berlin archivists
have not managed to provide any details so am at a loss as to what else
to try.

from a religious perspective, everyone up to and including Abraham was not
a Kohen - this is evidenced either by gravestones or written narrative.
However my great-grandfather Hugo EISENSTADT, who died in the UK in 1939
(although I've not been able to trace a grave, and neither for his wife
Anita Chaiya who died in 1955), was a Kohen.

The working assumption, >from various circumstantial evidence, is that
Hugo was adopted. I recently posted on viewmate a letter written in
1914 >from Hugo to the Chief Rabbi of Denmark, on a totally unrelated
matter. However of interest the letter was on letterhead which stated
Hugo EISENSTADT (Vorm. Richard BLUMKE). Very odd, put possibly more
evidence that Hugo was adopted.

So I've hit a brick wall in how to try and trace further details about Hugo.
I'm not aware of any adoption records, and have not been able to find a
birth certificate >from Hugo, which based on his marriage certificate he
was born on 9 November 1882 and married on 28 February 1907.

So it may well be that my family history is not even that of the
EISENSTADTs but rather BLUMKE! But I'm not sure how to look futher.

Many thanks for any suggestions/help in taking things forward.

Kind regards, Russell Eisen, London, UK ella99@yahoo.co.uk

Land Travel in Europe #ukraine

Kenneth Ryesky <kenneth.ryesky@...>
 

Notwithstanding the (il)legalities involved, the masses of immigrants
traveling gave rise to travel and associated industries there.

Some got rides on horse-drawn wagons, others walked, others took trains.

In short, the immigrants got to the ports any which way they could.
