Not "unbelaut" but "unbekannt = unknown". Parents of Gabriel Fidra were
unknown. Jonas Federer is unambiguous the first born son of Gabriel Fidra.

Re: Hapsburg Empire immigration/Hungary #hungary

Donna,

I did a quick check and may have found your Ignatz.  Census records list KLINE Ignatz born about 1873, married to Louisa, who came to the US 1883-85. Passport application identifies his father as Nathan Joseph and his birthplace as "Bakasur". That may be a misspelling of Bekescsaba. Hope this helps!

Re: Hapsburg Empire immigration/Hungary #hungary

Donna,

Would be able to provide more assistance if you included more information such as his exact year of birth and death. Have you checked naturalization, military or other records that might provide info about place of birth? Death and marriage records may indicate names of his parents. Any other siblings in the US? Census records can help to narrow arrival and naturalization dates. Headstone may provide Hebrew name of his father. KLEIN was a very common Hungarian Jewish surname but still worth contacting Hungarian subscription list once you can offer some additional information.

Did you contribute to the latest Smela translation project?   I did, because we also had family from Cherkassy.

Hi,
I don't have the list for Smela, but I'm curious about your website.

Have you tried: GeneaSearch ?
You can also find the originals on Family Search, but I believe that the first website has most if not all of the records indexed.

I would hope even with the ability to attach images to the new Discussion group messages that ViewMate will not become obsolete. It is still a valuable place to submit documents for translations.

ViewMate has an archive of more than 75,000 documents and images that you can search for family surnames, towns, etc. Search on this page:

Seeking information finding burial site in Palestine (pre 1948 Israel) #israel #lithuania

Jennifer Meltzer
 

In 1926, my maternal grandmother, Jennie (nee Beck) PEARLMAN traveled from the USA to Lithuania and Poland to visit the "old country".  She kept in a diary, and in it, she mentions that her parents are "buried in Palestine".  I believe her mother's name was Gittel SCHNEIDER, and her father was Alexander BECK.  To date, I have been unable to determine in which cemeteries in Israel it is possible that they may be buried.  My grandmother was from Vilna.  She herself was a "Yiddishist" who was somewhat traditional, but not Orthodox.  I have no idea what her parents lifestyle may have been.

I subscribe to the IGRA newsletter, and have tried reaching out to them as well, but to no avail.

Any leads would be helpful.

ISO records for Shoshana/Rose Weiser from Israel

Brian Blitz
 

I am looking for help finding records related to my great-great aunt, Rose/Shoshana Weiser.  Rose was born in Brody, Galicia (now Ukraine), around 1880. She was the daughter of Simcha (Simon) Weiser and Vassa/Jasse/Jetty Spondre.  

At some point, I think before WWII, she moved to Israel.  She died in the early 1970s, and was living in Kiryat Motzkin, near Haifa, when she died.  I do not believe that she was ever married — she signed her name as Weiser on letters and on Pages of testimony at Yad Vashem.  

I have been unable to find records related to her immigration to Israel, nor have I been able to find any grave in Israel.  I am aware of the POT she filled out at Yad Vashem as well as the chapter of the Brody Yizkor Book she wrote.  I would appreciate any help in finding records or her immigration and death/burial.  

Thank you.

Re: Tracing family in Poland #poland

With the arrival of the new main@groups site I see an interesting "problem"   My Eudora Email client with which I do all my emailing shows me "gibberish" 

Knowing that this was Hebrew I used  http://www.pixiesoft.com/flip/  which converted the posting into legible Hebrew

Is the intention of jewishgen to accept posting in any language in future?

I would guess that where in the past pots always requested to "answer privately" when you hit "reply" and did not look, it had both the sender of the original message AND the jewishgen group (which then rejected the message to the "list") in the response email recipients  Now the super-duper new facilty seems to allow messages to the list through.
