Both places are in Slovakia,

The Slovak National Archives in Bratislava and the regional archives
in Banska Bystrica, Bratislava, Bytca, Kosice, Levoca, Nitra, and Presov
accept written and e-mail requests concerning extracts, copies and search
from archival documents.
Each of the regional archives (Statny archivy) covers several areas identified
as branches [pobocka].

Inquiries directed to the National Archives will be referred to the
appropriate regional archive , which will notify the researcher,
typically in Slovak, whether records have been located . If the archive
finds the information requested, the Slovak Embassy will notify the
researcher and indicate the required fee.

You can find contact information for the national archive on the website
at http://www.minv.sk/?slovensky-narodny-archiv

The matriky in the regional archives include birth, baptismal, marriage
and death records as well as tax records, deeds, charters and nobility records.
In most cases, records can now be ordered by E-mail

You may also be able to find the records you want on the Family Search
website at

Re: Erlangen Germany appoints a "Commissioner" #germany

Fran Luebke <franluebke@...>
 

I couldn't be more delighted with the appointment of Christof Eberstadt
as Commissioner. I have known Christof for a number of years and am
deeply aware of his devotion to preserving the history of Jews in
Franconia and in other areas of Germany. Many people, including myself,
have benefited >from his thorough research in a various of areas of
Germany and his generosity with his time. He has demonstrated that he is
most deserving of this honor and the humble manner in which he has
accepted the appointment is another testimonial to his character.
Bridging the past centuries, the present and pointing to the future are
crucial in maintaining the continuity of the communities and encouraging
understanding.

Congratulations, Christof and I just hope that you were also given
several more hours to your already packed days!

Mazal tov to Christof - and to us! - for his appointment. Christof is a
selfless and thorough genealogist who has always stood ready to help
us trace our Jewish families.

I, personally, am quite pleased that Erlangen had the good sense
to appoint someone like Christof to this sensitive position!

Military records in Israel - IDF #general

Rose Feldman <rosef@...>
 

The IDF files are closed under privacy laws. If the soldier is dead,
than his spouse can see the material. If the spouse is dead, then the
children. This is what I have been told on a visit to them.

If the soldier died in action than there is the Yizkor site -
http://www.izkor.gov.il/ which is in Hebrew. I believe Steve Morse has
a application for this to search in English.

A number of different units have websites. You can find a listing of
the websites towards the bottom of the IGRA resource page

Re: Male given name Kasa #poland

It looks to me like the female name usually transliterated as Khasa.
Sometimes genders get recorded wrong. Sometimes a male person has a
female name.

One of my male ancestors' given names was recorded as Kasa.
Has anyone seen that name or know if it is a variation of another

KONKOROVICH - Skapiskis and Tronkunai #lithuania

Jules Feldman
 

A record in the All Lithuanian Data Base shows that my grandmother's
brother, Idel HURWITZ (or HURVICH OR GURVICH) married Chana Rivka
KONKOROVICH in 1926 in Troskunai. Her parents were Chaim Shlomo KONKOROVICH
and Chaya Shura LEVINSON and they had lived previously in Skapiskis.
In 1928 Idel and Chana had a daughter Sheina GURVICH and it appears they
were then living in Ponevezys.
Idel HURWITZ was born in Rokiskis. He migrated to South Africa in 1932 and
died there in 1935.
Chana and Sheina remained behind and their fate in the Holocaust is not
known.

Will be grateful for any further information.

Erlangen Germany appoints a "Commissioner for the old Jewish Community of Erlangen" #germany

Christof Paul Antonio Eberstadt <cpa-eberstadt@...>
 

I have the joy and honour to announce my election as "Commissioner for
the old Jewish community of Erlangen", by appointment of the board of
today's Jewish Community (JKG Erlangen, i.e. Juedische Kultusgemeinde
Erlangen).

In this honorary duty I see myself as kind of an heir to
Obermayer Medal awardee Mrs. Ilse Sponsel, who for the recent 40 years
dedicated her life to building up and keeping contact with former Erlangen
Jews and their descendants, and, in doing that, lifted the veil off an
important part of the Erlangen local history to preserve it for future
generations.

She herself was elected by the Erlangen community council,
and has died in 2011. Since her death her position remained vacant. The
JKG Erlangen decided to follow a new way >from now on.

My background is of Jewish and non-Jewish German descent, so my personal
biography includes some of the typical ruptures and facets of the German
history of the 19th century. In consequence, and in order to speak a
constant Kaddish to all victims, I researched my entire family
intensively since 1986, also on an international scale, being a
JewishGen member since 1999.

My new appointment will accompany the transition of times between
yesterday and tomorrow, in other words: the coming times, when so called
Zeitzeugen will not be at hand any more to tell us, and especially our
children, about their life personally.

One of my aims will be to collect knowledge of all kind about Erlangen
Jews and their descendants and help to preserve it by apt methods.

I appeal to all GerSig'gers and other interested people who are in any
way linked to Erlangen Jewish history to be of help in that effort by
contacting me directly.
