The Yiddish Speakers Who Stayed Behind: Rural Ukraine, Moldava, Romania, Hungary and Slovakia #hungary

Jan Meisels Allen
 

Researchers >from Indiana University, linguist Dov-Ber Kerler and historian
Jeffrey Veidlinger interviewed almost 400 elderly Yiddish speakers in
Eastern Europe. AHEYM, the archives of Historical and Ethnographic Yiddish
Memories at Indiana University explores Jewish life in Eastern Europe
before, during and after World War II. The interviews -all in Yiddish were
conducted in small towns in Ukraine, Modava, Romania, Hungary and Slovakia.
The interviews focus on the following areas: language, religious customs and
beliefs, songs, and Holocaust testimony. The interviews also provide a
unique insight on how ordinary Jews experienced the 20th century.

While the archive is not yet complete, there are some online exhibits where
one can search by person, location and subject. See:
http://www.iub.edu/~aheym/archives.php You can browse by category at:
http://www.iub.edu/~aheym/archives.php?filter=category. Categories include:
daily life, foodways, Jewish Life Between the Wars, religion and ritual,
songs, poems and prayer, World War II and the Holocaust and Jewish Life
After World War II.

The interviews have not been translated into English and may be heard in the
original Yiddish. There are lists of topics covered and the time on the tape
that have been translated into English. If you go to online exhibit and
select any person, there is in English information about the person and the
town.

Old map of Prague with house numbers #austria-czech

pinardpr@...
 

Dear SIG,

Philip Moravcik asked about a map of Prague with the house numbers >from circa 1942.
I don't know any such map >from that year.

However, there is an on-line map >from 1938 showing the house conscription numbers
(white text on red background). These are the most reliable numbers to use, i.e., the numbers
that do not generally change for as long as the house exists.

The Nazis changed many street names and reformed the house orientation numbers (white
numbers on blue background), i.e., the ordinal number of buildings in a street in 1940.
However, the conscription numbers remained the same.

The Communist city administration fiddled with/changed a few buildings here and there in the
early 1950's and redrew the district boundaries twice between 1949 and 1960, just to make
things more interesting, but I've only encountered a couple such cases in Vinohrady in the course of 15 years research.

Here is the link to the overview of the map. It has 74 individual section pages.

http://web2.mlp.cz/mapa1938/klad.php

If you run into any trouble identifying a building/address today, write me and I will do my best
to help you with it.

All the best,

Rick

Prague addresses #austria-czech

danielat1@...
 

Philip the National Archives library had a book whose title I do not remember sorry which showed
all street names and how they changed over the years.
I recommend you ask the Archives for help or perhaps the National Library.
Dr Matusikova is still working at the archives so you could try her though she is only there part
time now.
I have seen some old maps but my cousin sourced them >from the map publishers over the road
from our flat in Holesovice. I think its called kartogrofie or something like that. Sorry my Czech
is not good.
I am sure the archives or the library will be able to help.
Good luck

Mitteiler Family #romania

George Muenz <gmuenz1955@...>
 

Hello,

A bit of background if I may. I am 62 and live in Vancouver, Canada. My late
Mother Rosa Berger, was >from Csenger, Hungary, near Romania.

My Mother never told us ANYTHING, not where she was from, that she had 3 brothers
and a sister, her parents names, nothing. Since starting my search about 9 months
ago, I have found family I did not even know existed in Argentina, Israel,
Hungary, Sweden, and Germany.

Her father was Simon Berger and his Mother was Fanni Mitteiler. Fanni was born in
Nagy Karoly, Carei, Carei, Satu Mare County, Romania.

A few days ago, I connected with a member of the Mittelier family who lives in
Sweden, Israel and Hungary. We are trying establish the exact connection. It's a
unique name, the only ones that show up in Geni are that of my new-found cousin
and myself I have the wedding record of my Grandfather where it lists
Fanni Mitteiler as his mother.

I think she died in 1875 so trying to find either birth records or marriage
records (She married Mayer Berger of Szamossalyi, Hungary

Your help is most appreciated.

Thanks

Index to 1897 Russian Census Head of Households in Kyiv Guberniya Online #ukraine

Gary Mokotoff
 

Index to 1897 Russian Census Head of Households in Kyiv Guberniya Online
Professional genealogist Sarah Nadia Lipes has placed online an index to
heads of households in Kyiv guberniya found in the 1897 Russian Census. It
is located at http://jewua.info/jewish-genealogy-search-at-ukraine/.
Information provided is surname; given name; patronymic; age; and fond,
document and page numbers. There are approximately 50,000 entries. The
search engine uses a "Starts with" algorithm. Searching for "Kagan" also
produces results for "Kaganovich."

Lipes stated that the project is a work-in-progress, and she expects "to add
many thousands of additional names in coming weeks and months." She
recommends researchers read the instructions page at
http://jewua.info/how-to-make-a-search/ before attempting a search. That
page has, for example, the transliteration scheme used to go >from the
Cyrillic to the Latin alphabet.

The project was funded by a grant provided by Henry Louis Gates, Jr., host
of the American genealogy show Finding Your Roots. Gates had a person of
Ukrainian ancestry on his show and provided documents to demonstrate the
person's ancestry. Lipes informed Gates that the research was faulty and
provided him with the correct documents. Gates was so impressed by Lipes
work, that he donated his honorarium for speaking at the recent IAJGS
Orlando conference to make it possible to place the Kyiv census records
online.
