The Doctors of Courland 1825-1900, by Issidorus Brennsohn #courland #latvia

Polina <polina-olsen@...>
 

Hi,

My Great-Uncle often boasted about a family member in Latvia that was =
the "Dr. for the Duchess of Kurland". This was probably in the =
mid-1800s. He said that because of this physician, the family could =
have four horses pull their carriage - not just two.

Does this reference mean anything to anyone? Do you have any suggestions =
on how to track something like this?

Thank you for any help.

Best Regards,

Polina Olsen

Latvia SIG has received a listing of Latvian records held in the Belarus
Archives. This information is of great importance to us as you will be able
to apply to the Minsk Archives if the records you are seeking appear in
these lists.

Here is the list which I will append to the Archival Holdings in the
Latvian State Historical Archives page which is linked to both my Rigapage
and the Latvia SIG page.

http://www.shtetlinks.jewishgen.org/riga/riga_archive_holdingslatest.htm

As you can see this is one of the reasons why the Latvian State Historical
Archivists may draw a blank on occasions due to the fact that certain
records are not in their Archive.

Holocaust survivor search (WYGODNY) #scandinavia

sharon lehrer <sharon_lehrer@...>
 

Dear Genners,

I would like help in finding a holocaust survivor who immigrated to
Sweden after the war.

Chaja Ruchl WYGODNY, born circa 1900 in Pinczow, later lived in Lodz,
immigrated to Sweden in 1945. Her name appears on the ITS list of
1945. She was related to my grandmother Hinda WYGODNY.

Are there any records of holocaust survivors and a followup of their
whereabouts? Would someone please point me in the right direction.

Thank you.

Sharon Lehrer, Petach Tikva, Israel.

Reading Pre-PC Family Tree #germany

Gunther Steinberg <beagun27@...>
 

I need some help interpreting an old-fashioned (pre-PC) family
tree, in the shape of a real tree with branches.
The family progenitor is at the base, with his wife listed right
under his name, and there are three branches to the left , the
children >from his marriage.

Then there is another female (in a circle) (males are shields) in the
center of the large tree trunk.

** Is it correct to consider her as a second marriage?
Then there six more sturdy branches, left and right, which seem to be
children >from this apparent second marriage.

I had not had occasion to study such a family tree with care, and am
unaware of the custom used in those days. Was that a second marriage ?

Most of the others are fairly straight forward with children on the
tertiary branches and twigs, as one sees more generations.
Other data solves another minor anomaly. Thanks for any enlightenment.

1848 Hungarian Census Ung County #hungary

bikerick <bikerick@...>
 

I was looking at the FHC film for the 1848 Hungarian Census Ung County
(#719826). Ung County is at the end of the film. Most of the entries are
very readable. Generally, the last name is first, then the first name
ordered by head of household, then other family members listed below.
However, beware, that in some cases the entries are first name, then last
name. Also, for Ungvar (now Uzchorod) wives are not always listed, just
fathers and their children.

Following is a list of Ung County towns (>from the 1882 Hungarian Gazetteer
posted on the WEB). I have put after each town the page number of where it
is located in the 1848 Census microfilm. Please note that there are some
towns that I missed. Please also note that in using a list of towns >from a
later period, there have been apparently been some changes since 1848, such
as in what districts they are in and how they are spelled. Nevertheless,
until this census is posted as a WEB data base, I thought that the following
would be useful for folks consulting it:

Finding Background Information on people #hungary

Tom Venetianer <tom.vene@...>
 

Dear all,

There is an old saying in my family: "for a young kid all jokes are
new". I guess it could be adapted to "for a rookie genealogical
researcher all websites he/she hasn't yet visited are new". So if you
are familiar with what I'm about to report please be forbearing.

I stumbled into Google's (yes the famous search engine) "Google's
Services and Tools" page <http://www.google.com/options/index.html>.
Guess what? Besides the well know search facility, Google offers many
more searching possibilities.

One of them is "Google Answers"
<https://answers.google.com/answers/main>. You place a question, pay
a quite modest fee and get a very thorough answer. The answers are
given by experts who investigate the most important sources, off and
online, to guide you through further searches.

All already given answers can be browsed for free. I tried the world
"genealogy" and came up with over 80 questions and related answers
<https://answers.google.com/answers/main?cmd=search&q=genealogy&qtype=all&btnG=Google+Search&catid=1300>.

Here is an example: "How to find background information on people?"
This is the page where the answer was given:
https://answers.google.com/answers/main?cmd=threadview&id=100974

You will be amazed (at least I was) about how many public records
online databases exist where you may find new information about your
ancestry, mostly for free.

BTW, one of the searches the person who answered this question did
was on Google using the search term ["people finding" search
techniques OR databases]

I hope you find this useful. Enjoy.

Hungarian documents on the Holocaust #hungary

Florence & Henry Wellisch <kelwel@...>
 

According to an announcement in the Jerusalem-Yad Vashem Magazine, Vol. =
23, Summer 2001 large numbers of documents >from the Hungarian Arvhives =
were transferred to Yad Vashem Archives. Here is an excerpt >from the =
announcement:

According to Chairman of the Yad Vashem Directorate, Avner Shalev, this =
documentation is extremely important for research into the Holocaust =
period in Hungary, as it includes, among other information, that which =
pertains to the roundup of Jews prior to deportation, the aryanization =
of Jewish property, and the deportation of Jews, as well as legal =
documents and lists of survivors who returned to Hungary at the end of =
the war..............................
Over the upcoming six month, Hungary will publicise the archival =
transfer of the documents containing personal data, in order to allow =
for all those desiring privacy, to object to their names appearing on =
the documentation. Following the six-month period, the microfilm copies =
will be transferred to the Yad Vashem Archives. [End of quote]

Please note that this announcement appeared in the summer of 2001, so it =
seems that all the documentation should be transferred by now since the =
six-month period has expired. Does anyone on this list have any =
information on these important documents in the possession of Yad =
Vashem?

Re: town identification: Nizhny Sard #hungary

Dolph Klein <kledolph@...>
 


I am trying to find the modern name and location for a town called
Nizhny Sard (pronounced Shard). This town should be very close to
Khust, but I can't find any close matches on ShtetlSeeker. I
appreciate your help.

Sincerely,
Adam Smith
New York, NY

Moderator VK: There's a Nyz. Selysce just east of Chust.
Nizhny Sard may be a Slovak variant of Nizni Ssarad (sic). Diacritics are
omitted. In Hungarian, the town was known as Alsosarad or Also-Sarad and
was located in Ugocsa varmegye, Tiszaninneni jaras. According to several
recent sources, the name is Nizsnye Bolotne or Nyznje Bolatne, Ukraine.
However, this town was incorporated into the town Vilchivka or Vilhivka
(formally Olyvos, Hungary). I do not have a detailed modern map of the
Ukraine, but Vilchivka/Vilhivka is located about 4 miles SE of Irsava and
about 10 miles NW of Chust.
