Dear Yosef,

This is a reference to the Satoraljaujhely (Ujhely, Ihel, the place where
the Yismach Moshe is buried) branch archives of the Borsod-Abauj-Zemplen
county archives. This is a repository whose records have not fully been
microfilmed/scanned by the LDS. So you might have to contact them by e-mail.

You can try calling the archives but only the director speaks English.

Re: (Czech Republic) Reassembling a Lost Jewish Cemetery #austria-czech

Joseph Lonstein
 

Thanks to Jan for her post, which refers to the same project our SIG received
information about in late August >from Julius Muller. A large branch of
my family lived in Prostejov (many surnamed GRUNHUT, BACK, KOCH), so this
piqued my interest when we first heard about it. I contacted the project's
director, Tomas Jelinek, and was told that they have access to transcriptions
of many of the stones >from the "old" cemetery, which obviously must have
been made before it was destroyed. His researchers sent me the names and
plot locations of my known and possible family members, and for what I thought
was a reasonable fee they quickly searched the transcriptions, sent me
photographs of the pages, and translated the Hebrew or German text into English.
The information I received was very valuable to me, and in a few cases included
information such as the names of spouses, parents, place of birth, and/or occupations
that was not included in the death records I viewed
on the Badatelna website. I don't know what percentage of the total gravestones
from the "old" cemetery have paper transcriptions in the files that
Tomas' researchers have access to, but it could be a tremendous new resource for
information about pre-1900s Prostejov people.

A New Searchable Database on JewishGen #austria-czech

easpira@...
 

A new searchable index has just come online in JewishGen's
Austria-Czech database.

The new index consists of 9600 of the birth, marriage, and death
records >from the Moravian town of Trebic (Trebitsch). Using this new
index allows direct access to the original records of residents of the
Jewish ghetto, >from 1784-1934.

To find a desired record, one needs only to enter the surname of the
person in whom you are interested, on the A-C database search page.
Then select "Trebic births", "marriages", or "deaths". >from the list
of names that the index shows, select a specific given name. This
leads to the desired image page of the original record.

Although I have tried to accurately transcribe the names and page
numbers >from the original records written in Gothic German script,
there is an error rate of approximately 3%. If the desired record is
not on the page which the database search has led you to, it can often
be found within a few pages. Search among these for the correct folio
page number, as provided in the index. (Folio page numbers are
usually located on the upper left or right corner of the record page.)

This is the first of what I hope will be many indices of the vital
records of towns of relevance to our Group, prepared by our members.
Please consider submitting indices of towns of interest to you,
prepared as separate spreadsheets for births, marriages and deaths (I
used Excel). Send them to JewishGen for inclusion in our groups'
database.

The amount of work involved in preparing an index is considerable,
depending on the size of the town, but the potential usefulness to our
researchers is much greater. And, while you are entering the data on
your spreadsheet, you can also enter it into your genealogy software
(I use Reunion for Mac), and be able to produce family trees of any or
all of the inhabitants of your town!

I will be happy to help answer questions members have about the Trebic data=
base.

Death record for Jews who left the faith in Vienna #austria-czech

danielat1@...
 

Does anyone know how to find a death record for Dr Georg KLAPPHOLZ who was a
lawyer born in Bratislava in 1900 to Irma nee TUSCHAK and Ede? He left the
Jewish faith and was cremated in Vienna in August 1928. As he died at a
young age of 28 I'd like to find out how and why he died but I don't know
how to get that information.
Is the only way to ask the Vienna City Archives and pay them to do the
search or can I find out online at no cost? I've looked in the Mormon
records but he is not listed in the death records as far as I can tell. I
may have fouled up the search as I find those records hard to use.
