SCHWAGER Family in Lugoj #romania

LJA022864@...
 

I am trying to find out information about my great grandmother's family >from
Lugoj, Romania. Her name was Henia SCHWAGER (died in 1946) and she was born
in Lugoj. She married Eisig ADLER and lived in Stanislau, Austria (now
Ivano-Frankovsk, Ukraine) until 1920 when she moved to the U.S. (New York).
Henia had 7 children who were all born in Stanislau and all lived in the US -
Bernard, Morris, Oskar, Regina, Fannie, Nisson Leib (Leon), Sophie, Bertha
and Julia. Two other children died very young. Henia had family in Romania
fairly recently. One was a symphony conductor whose family may have moved to
Israel. Any information would be very helpful. Thank you.

Genealogical Diary of Geza SIMON of Nagyvarad (1901) #romania

Ujfeherto@...
 

Dear Fellow Genealogist,

I just posted an important historical document on my genealogical website: the genealogical diary of my grandmother's Uncle Geza written in 1901:

http://members.aol.com/plinhardt/

Geza SIMON was a hussar in the Hungarian Calvary who lived in Nagyvarad and later in Budapest. Developing an early interest in genealogy, he traces the SIMON family back to Saros county in 1770. Geza tells of how his father surrepetitiously taught himself to read and write late at night against the wishes of his orthodox parents to later become principal of the Auspitz school in Nagyvarad. Geza goes on to tell tales of simple pleasures and the tragedies of the SIMON family caught in revolutions, Emperial wars and the conflict between the Hungarians & Romanians.

Anyone studying genealogy >from Transylvania should find this an interesting account that gives a rich flavor of the life and times spanning several generations.

Families discussed are: SIMON (Saros, Nagyvarad, Budapest, Alsórákos), SZUSZMANN (Saros, Galicia), RINDAUER (Lipótszentmiklós), MAHLER (Nagyvarad, Marghita), HERTZFELD (Nagyvárad), GYULAI, URAI (Kissebes), KONDOR (Nagyvarad), SEBESSY (Kolozsvár),

I hope you'll come visit my site.

Early Romanian immigrants to the US? #romania

Monkshould@...
 

Well, it seems as though there are far more questions than answers! I
will certainly post information on any sources I learn of, and hope
you all will do likewise.

Does anyone know the difference between the Federation of Roumanian
Jews in America founded in 1909 and the American Union of Roumanian
Jews founded in 1916? In addition to it being rather strange that
there were two such umbrella federations within a small community, it
also appears that there was some sort of ongoing dispute between them,
which I'd be very interested in learning more about.

Re: searching for relatives #france

Brian Stern <brians@...>
 

[ long story about relatives who came to the US in the 1920's but have had
no contact since 1937 ]

It would be very intereting to find the descendants of this family.
Please let me know if you have any information that could help.
I would appreciate any hints on how I may proceed in searching them.
Thank you very much,
Galina,

Tracing forward in time to find descendents can be difficult because people
move >from one place to another and change their names. Here are a few
suggestions on how you might trace your relatives, in no particular order.

* Contact all the researchers listed on JGFF >from your towns of interest,
Medzhibozh and Starokonstantinov, and tell them your story. Make a list of
all the surnames associated with those towns and show them to your
grandmother to see if she can remember the surname of your relatives.

* Register your names on JGFF.

* Search the JGen message archives and the entire web for your surnames and
towns. Also search the entire JGen web site.

* Search through the city directories for Brooklyn and the rest of New York
City for the 1920's and later looking for your furrier and physician. City
directories of that era have people listed by surname like a white pages
directory of today. In the back they list people by business. If you show
the list of all furriers in Brooklyn in 1930 to your grandmother perhaps
she will remember the surname.

* If the Stephen Morse one step search web page ever comes back you should
search for all people who came to the US >from Starokonstantinov.

* Your surname of interest, Beygeldrut, is uncommon. Contact anyone who
has that surname. If you can find anyone with that surname in the city
directories for NY then look them up in the census. There could be other
relatives that you and your grandmother don't know about but who lived in
the US and who your target relatives lived with.

* Go to the nyjgs web site and look up all the cemeteries that have burial
societies for your towns of interest. You could phone them and ask if
there is someone matching your story buried in the burial plots for those
societies.

http://www.nyjgs.org/

* There should be a way to search for medical doctors >from that era in NYC,
besides the city directories, but I don't know what it is. If someone else
knows how please let us know.

You have your work cut out for you.

Good luck,

9/11 Jewish Victims List #general

Lynne Shapiro <lynneshap@...>
 

This would be a worthwhile project, to both honor those lost and to in
some small way counter the notion in large segments of the Arab world
that Jews somehow knew of the event in advance and did not go into work
at the World Trade Center that day. But there are already lists of
victims, which of course do not specify religion. How would we know
which of the victims were Jewish? Would it be a list based on
submissions of family members? That would probably not be very complete,
because only a certain segment of the population would submit names.
Also, for the list to be most useful genealogically, it would have to
contain additional information, such as the date of birth and parents'
names of the victims. People might understandably feel reluctant to give
this information to an instantly accessible list, since it could invade
their privacy. Does anyone see a way around these issues?

Re: Border Changes #general

sallybru <sallybru@...>
 

Between about 1800 and WWI there was no Poland. It was partitioned between
Russia, Prussia, and Austria. There was a Kingdom of Poland which was part
of Russia in the 1840-1900 period you are talking about. So your ancestor
was >from Polish Russia or Russian Poland or Russia or Poland.

Posen was in Prussia and on the census, they apparently claimed Germany-it
would have been Prussia in the 1840's as Germany was formed in 1871.

A cousin of mine came >from Augustow, Poland (then Russia) but he was born in
Marseilles, France! Such things happened. Perhaps your family moved, or
fled as this cousin's family->from famine, cholera, and rebellion.
