Re: Forced Labor Units #hungary

Gábor Hirsch <hirsch@...>
 

I believe "communist disciplinary unit" mean a disciplinary unit for
communist and others not trustfully persons for military service or as
fighting unit, it might be a"kommunista bunteto szazad or a zsido
bunteto szazad, a unit to discipline or punish communists, Jews etc. It
is always a problem to make a translation not word by word.
A nice story is >from 56 after the Hungarian uprising. The Hungarian was
helped by a Swiss aid to find a room. When the future landlady asked
"woher er gekommen ist" (where did he come from) answered our men "nicht
Kommunist Faschist" saying that he is not a communist but fascist.
Bunteto szazad, according my dictionary is company of refractory
soldiers, and buntetotabor = detention camp

of Szombathely.

"communist disciplinary unit " ???!!! in the Hungary of 1942? Not likely to
be a communist run unit, since communism was outside of the law in Hungary in
1942. Or was it a unit where they held sympathizers or members of communist
organizations or groups as enemies of the state of Hungary? Your question is
not clear, and maybe your date is wrong?

Not in 1942 but in 1945. There was also a functioning gas chamber in this
town, the only one in Hungary, where many Jews were put to death. Mainly

Translation of Old Yiddish Letters #poland

Linda Shefler <linsilv@...>
 

Dear All~
I have several letters written in Yiddish between my ggg grandfather (in
Poland) and gg grandfather (here in America) that I am most anxious to have
translated. The letters are about 100 years old and as I understand it
written in a rather formal/learned Yiddish. I am anxious to learn not only
names; dates; places and other vital information, but also about their
personal lives.

The letters can be found at: http://data.jewishgen.org/viewmate/toview.html
in the To View section - as files - VM3445; VM3446; VM3447
Please respond privately.

Any help with translations would be greatly appreciated.

Thanks in advance.

Expansion of Shopping Basket Order System #poland

Mark Halpern <willie46@...>
 

Mark your calendar for March 1st as 11 more Archives and branches
will be added to the JRI-Poland Shopping Basket order system on that
date.

Read on for more information.

On October 22, 2003, we announced the expansion of our Shopping
Basket order system for ordering certain Jewish vital records
from the Polish State Archives. That announcement can be found at
http://www.jri-poland.org/psa/neworder.htm. At that time, we
announced that the Shopping Basket system would be applicable for
19 Archives and branches as of November 3, 2003 and that other
Archives would be added in early 2004.

The Shopping Basket system has been a real success, allowing
researchers to obtain record copies more efficiently than in the
past. The Polish State Archives is also happy with this new
System. Therefore, the Polish State Archives has agreed to add
the following Archives and branches to the Shopping Basket system
effective March 1, 2004.

Katowice
Kielce
Leczycz branch of Plock Archives
Pinczow branch of Kielce Archives
Piotrkow Trybunalski
Radom
Sandomierz branch of Kielce Archives
Starachowice branch of Kielce Archives
Tomaszow Mazowiecki branch of Piotrkow Trybunalski Archives
Torun
Wloclawek branch of Torun Archives

This means that all records that have been indexed through
JRI-Poland/Polish State Archives projects (see
http://www.jri-poland.org/psa/psastat.htm) will now be available
for ordering using the Shopping Basket system. Records indexed
from LDS (Mormon) microfilms or any other source cannot be
ordered using this system.

A step-by-step guide to ordering records using the Shopping Basket
system can be found at
http://www.jri-poland.org/psa/psabasketinst.htm.

Bernard and Jakob WEISSBERG #general

Daniel Kazez <dkazez@...>
 

I am trying to find Bernard and Jakob WEISSBERG. I believe that Bernard was
born in Poland as:

Benjamin Wolf WAJSBERG
born 11 February 1914, Czestochowa

After the War, he was:

Bernard WEISSBERG
listed as a survivor in Stockholm, Sweden

His parents were:

Josek Szaja and Bajla Szajndla WAJSBERG

Today, if still alive, Bernard and Jakob WEISSBERG could be anywhere, but I
would guess they would be in Israel, Canada, or the USA. Let me know if you
can help.

Revue du Cercle de Genealogie Juive, # 76 #general

Ernest Kallmann <ernest.kallmann@...>
 

Revue du Cercle de Genealogie Juive, N° 76, Volume 19, December 2003, is
fresh >from the press. Here is the summary :


This issue is mainly devoted to papers about genealogical discoveries,
in order to illustrate the various adventures a genealogist can face and
the many ways he can proceed to obtain results.


Didier AMAR recalls the first meeting of the Amar family, descending
from Salomon Amar >from Salonika, held in Toledo and gathering some 50
persons. A family tree is shown.

In "The concealed memory" , Andre NARCY reveals how he discovered that
one of his grandmothers was of Jewish descent, a secret his family had
never revealed.

"Is Levy a specific Jewish surname ?" Bernard LYON-CAEN has discovered a
Michel-Levy family in the Jura mountains, traced back as far as 1650,
and certainly not Jewish.

"Who is Nathan Risser's wife ?" Andree MARGOLIN tries to identify a
Bomsel girl, who married Nathan Risser in 1845. Her given names vary,
according to various records, between Klar, Adele, Clarisse, Elise and
Claire. At the end of a genuine detective's investigation, the author
discovers illegitimate births and forged documents.

Peter STEIN discovers a new source for Jewish genealogy : the accounts
of the Swiss bailiffs for the city of Baden (Aargau) and the
Baden-Buecher kept in the Archives of the Canton of Bern. They often
document vital events relating to families with members both in
Lengnau-Endingen and in Alsace.

Pierre-Andre MEYER concludes his description of the Aron family. They
finally succeed in returning to Phalsbourg in 1724 after having found a
refuge in Lixheim following their expulsion in 1712. They are granted
permission to do so after agreeing to live in three houses only, located
in the same area.
The family history can be traced through Notary deeds and the
corresponding IOUs and receipts. Aron "the father" dies in 1742-43 and a
third generation takes over. Pierre-Andre Meyer follows up their story
until the French Revolution, when all restrictions to the settlement of
the Jews in cities are waived. As early as 1808, 42 Jewish households
with 240 individuals live in Phalsbourg.

Revue du Cercle de Genealogie Juive, N° 76, Volume 19, December 2003, is
fresh >from the press. Here is the summary :


This issue is mainly devoted to papers about genealogical discoveries,
in order to illustrate the various adventures a genealogist can face and
the many ways he can proceed to obtain results.


Didier AMAR recalls the first meeting of the Amar family, descending
from Salomon Amar >from Salonika, held in Toledo and gathering some 50
persons. A family tree is shown.

In "The concealed memory" , Andre NARCY reveals how he discovered that
one of his grandmothers was of Jewish descent, a secret his family had
never revealed.

"Is Levy a specific Jewish surname ?" Bernard LYON-CAEN has discovered a
Michel-Levy family in the Jura mountains, traced back as far as 1650,
and certainly not Jewish.

"Who is Nathan Risser's wife ?" Andree MARGOLIN tries to identify a
Bomsel girl, who married Nathan Risser in 1845. Her given names vary,
according to various records, between Klar, Adele, Clarisse, Elise and
Claire. At the end of a genuine detective's investigation, the author
discovers illegitimate births and forged documents.

Peter STEIN discovers a new source for Jewish genealogy : the accounts
of the Swiss bailiffs for the city of Baden (Aargau) and the
Baden-Buecher kept in the Archives of the Canton of Bern. They often
document vital events relating to families with members both in
Lengnau-Endingen and in Alsace.

"The little French girl", Anne-Marie JUTEL, has traced her French
gggrandmother, who lived in San Francisco and is buried there, back to
her Alsatian parents.
