I am looking for Andras Racz, born 1939 in Budapest, Hungary, son of Ernst

married and then divorced. Apparently, he might be living in a medical
facility due to mental illness. Please contact me in private If anyone can
track him down.

Regards,
Shaul Sharoni,

old photos - fortepan #hungary

kolamcg@...
 

Dear All,

there is a wonderful collection of old pictures >from the 20th century under
www.fortepan.hu. The collection covers some 5,000 private photos, they are
really nice. I have found 4 with Jews on them >from the early 1940s - two with
men in forced labour, and the most striking one is a Rabbi speaking in front of
a swastika. He was speaking at a welcome ceremony held for the arriving
Hungarian troops when part of Transylavnia was returned to Hungary in 1940. He
was celebrating...

Best regards,
Andras Koltai

Marjem GOLDWATER, Mile End Old Town #unitedkingdom

mary.sayers@...
 

My mother-in-law had a sister who appears on the 1901 census for 23 Sydney
Square, Stepney, and in the births in Poland. The entries for her read:

1901 census: Mary age 10, Sydney Square, Stepney; born Poland.

1890 AKT 170 birth: Marjem Zilpa, b Kalisz Gubernia, Poznan Province,
Poland, Her four older siblings were born in Kolo, Poznan Province, so I
suspect that is also where she must have been born.

Marjem/Mary does not appear in the 1911 census, nor in the marriage and
death registrations.

One possibility is that Marjem is the Polly Goldwater who, according to the
electoral registers, is living at 21 Sydney Square (i.e. next door to Morris
Goldwater and his daughter Rebecca) in 1939. I have not been able to verify
or refute this and wonder if there is anyone who can shed light on Polly or
on Marjem.

Any information on further sources of information would be very much
appreciated.

COHN HARTSILVER #unitedkingdom

aajacobus@...
 

I would be grateful for advice on a puzzling genealogical question.

I am trying to trace a Moritz HARTSILVER a Watchmaker and Jeweller.
He appears in the 1911 census as Moritz COHER ( sic ) " now known as
HARTSILVER" b 1864 with wife Esther and children in Edmonton .Middx

His grandson in Australia informs me the family lived in Liverpool UK.
No sign of Moritz can be found in 1901 census.

However a Moritz COHN - watchmaker and Jeweller. living in Barrow in
Furnace
was bankrupt in 1902 and still living in Barrow in Furnace was Naturalized
in 1903.

Is he our man ?

Additionally when Rosa Weber the widow of an Isidore HARTSILVER died in 1954
her estate was left entirely to the 8 children of Moritz HARTSILVER.
I have been unable to link Isidore to Moritz .
