WEINER family of Zenta #hungary

Georges Graner
 

Hello,

I am looking for details on a WEINER family living in Zenta (now Senta
in Serbia). I found very few details in Familysearch and in the
HSig-database. Can you advice me for other sources ?

The people I am looking for are the children of WEINER Adolf and
SCHLESINGER Julia. They had 11 children but 3 died early. I guess that
all were born in Zenta. Several of them died in Zenta but others were
deported.

Their names are

WEINER Lipot (1873-1944), Etel (1875-1944), Antal (1878-1955), Imre
(1880-1937), Szeren (1882- ), Emma (1884-1944), Mariska (1886-1944),
Erzsebet (1895- ).

I would appreciate any details on these people and their offsprings.

Re: index of Alsace marriages #france

Pierre HAHN
 

Thanks Jean-Pierre,

I was only the helper in the Alsatian marriages the thanks should go
to my cousin Jean-Christophe Leveque (formely Levy), who plowed
through all the indeces of the Haut and Bas Rhin.

We think that there are at least another few thousand marriages to be
added especially >from the Republisan calendar years as the hand
writing is barely legible in many records.

If you find other marriages that are missing, or errors, please send
them to my address, and in time they will be added and fixed.

We, Jean-Christophe and I, hope this marriage database will help
somone to move their knowledge of their family tree another
generation.

In the future we plan to add marriages >from other departments.

The Salgotarjani Street cemetery in Budapest #hungary

I just found an interesting video on YouTube that present this "hidden" (closed off) cemetery.
https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=A5zC8_c5Fuw#t=410.998592
The cemetary was operational mostly between 1865 and 1930 with a few later burials here and there. A lot of matzevot have the names, even the dates, appearing very clearly. I managed to put together a list of the names here, so if people will search for these names in the future they can become aware of this video.

Looking for Adolf Gruenwald #hungary

Shaul Sharoni
 

Dear Siggers,

I would like to call your attention and ask for help locating the birth
record of Adolf (Abraham) Gruenwald, born 13.10.1884 in Szilagycseh,
present-day Cehu Silvaniei, Romania. According to his death registration at
Auschwitz his parents were Koloman und Theresie Gruenwald. As per his
marriage record dated 23.9.1910 in Spisska Nova Ves, Slovakia, his parents
were no longer alive at the time of the wedding (LDS 1739844, item 9, record
109-01). It is my assumption that his parents died at a relatively young
age, hence his uncle (my direct ancestor) took custody of him since all the
rest of the Gruenwalds remained in that part of Transylvania.

General note: this Gruenwald lineage was based in and around Szilagycseh
(Cehu Silvaniei, Romania) as well as neighboring villages such as Egerbegy
(Romanian: Agarbiciu), Illesfalva (Romanian: Basesti), Szilagyegerbegy
(Romanian: Tamasesti) and Mosobanya (Romanian: Baita de Sub Codru). In
addition the Salaj Yizkor book mentions members of this extended family yet
from parallel ancestors:
http://www.jewishgen.org/yizkor/Salaj/salh239.html

Can anyone try to locate his birth record? The end goal is to try and locate
his parents' marriage certificate.


Best Regards,
Shaul Sharoni,

Beregrad from eastern Slovakia #hungary

Shaul Sharoni
 

Dear Siggers,

The last name Beregrad in eastern Slovakia is associated with a Jewish
family which in the pre-WWII era lived in Stara Lesna (Oleszna in old
Hungarian). The earliest known mention appears in a marriage record for Geza
Beregrad dated 26.6.1892: the bride was Roza Politzer. The marriage was
registered in Huncovce (LDS 1739205 Item 4, record 07-04).

The transcription of the marriage record says that Geza's parents were
Abraham /Schima and Rachel (no further information noted). Other records on
JewishGen indicate that a man named Adam Simek (i.e. Schimek) was born in
that village and late on moved to Budapest where his children were born.

Can anyone help me ascertain whether the transcriber of the marriage record
for Geza Beregrad mentions the name Simek, which may have been transcribed
by mistake as Schima?
