Re: grave on Mt. Of Olives

Flavio Baran <fdbaran@...>
 

This is a link to the new Israel Chevra Kadisha website: https://gravez.me/en/
Although it says that Mt. of Olives cemetery is not yet included ("coming soon"), I would try to contact them through the website and ask for help.
Good luck,

Istvan Csepke - Mystery Child on JDC card #france #hungary

Judi Gyory Missel
 

In searching the recently available JDC cards, I found my relatives Imre and Maria Aszodi heading to France after escaping from Budapest after the 1956 Hungarian uprising. They eventually settled in Toronto, Canada. On their departure card, a 4 year old child named Istvan Csepke born in Debrecen is listed as part of the family. Istvan never went to Canada. No one in the family has ever heard of him and, unfortunately, both Imre and Maria have passed away. Does anyone have any idea of how to go about looking for Istvan? Was he being taken to relatives in France? I know of no other family from Debrecen, so how did he end up in Imre and Maria's care? Did he die in France and that's why he did not go with them to Canada? 
Any ideas for further research would be appreciated.

Ship manifest 1857

John Anderson
 

I am faced with a problem regarding my maternal great grandfather, Wilhelm WOLF; I am unsure of the ship on which he arrived.

 

Here is what I thought I knew: I found, at one  time, a manifest with his name on it on the ship Admiral sailing from  Havre to NYC arriving 16 Apr 1857. He was born 03 Dec 1840 in Deidesheim, Germany, then  a part of Bavaria.

 

However, there is a passport application for him dated 11 May 1903 from Newark, Essex County, New Jersey in which he clearly states he sailed aboard the Wilhelm Tell from Havre, France on or about the 1st of March 1857.

 

I cannot find any proof or manifest list, however, to substantiate this. Any ideas?

Tom,

Some of the updates that I posted to H-SIG have already been posted to the IAJGS website (e.g. see Carei, Baia Mare, Seini, Hajdusamson). I am awaiting confirmation that the next batch have also been added.
This is a great resource in planning visits to various towns in addition to the information on the very helpful Jewish Heritage Europe site. Here is the link for Romania. (Copy and paste into your browser)
https://jewish-heritage-europe.eu/romania/heritage-heritage-sites/

Use the US Commission Survey and scroll down to the cemeteries section to find the FEDROM report.

BADER Emma #hungary

Amit N
 

Dear all,

I am trying to crack open a black hole, with no luck so far.
My grandmother's uncle was married to a woman who according to the
family knowledge took her life at some point. I have succeeded to find
her maiden name this week. She was Dr. SPITZER Istvanne Szul BADER
Emma.
I can tell they were married before 1900, and that she died sometime
between 1910's-1930's. They lived in Sombor (Zombor in Hungarian,
nowadays Serbia).
I thought that such a case would appear on newspapers, but couldn't
find anything in Hungaricana.hu. I don't read Hungarian, so that's
another impediment...A JewishGen search also did not show results.
Do you have any idea on how to break this wall and find some
information about her and her untimely death?

Thank you all,
Amit Naor
Israel

LitvakSIG - Batch 7 of the Vilnius Household Registers #lithuania

Russ Maurer
 

LitvakSIG is pleased to announce that batch 7 of the Vilnius household
registers is now available to qualified donors.

The registers were created between 1919 and 1940 when Wilno (Vilnius)
city and Wilno voivodeship were part of Poland. The registers contain
detailed information about everyone who lived in Wilno at that time,
as well as information about many visitors. This includes refugees
fleeing the Nazis toward Vilnius in autumn of 1939. The registers will
potentially hold discoveries for anyone whose family was in that
general area, which today includes parts of Lithuania, Belarus, and
northeast Poland. I urge you to check the free batch previews
described below, even if you don't think your family was ever in
Vilnius. There have already been unexpected discoveries. There are
countless mentions of locations outside the immediate Vilnius area.

As this is a very large project that will go on for years, we are
releasing data in batches of about 5000 lines. Batch 7, 5033 lines,
includes three large apartment buildings located at Niemiecka 29 and
Wielka Stefanska 19 and 23. You can find these streets on our Vilnius
interactive street map (https://www.litvaksig.org/vilnius-map/). To
help you determine if this batch or a previous batch is relevant to
your research, you can review a file containing previews of all seven
batches to date (http://tinyurl.com/VHR-previews). The batch preview
is a bare-bones version of the batch spreadsheet containing just the
full name and year of birth (or age) of each person. The previews are
presented both in original order and alphabetically by surname. The
previews also include instructions to qualify to receive the full
batch data.

More information about the Vilnius household registers can be found on
the VHR home page,
www.litvaksig.org/research/special-projects/vilnius-household-registers

Any inquiries related to VHR should be directed to me at
vhrproject@litvaksig.org.
