jewish cemeteries in Hungary #general

renato mannheimer
 

My ggf was born in Ocs (Vezprem county Hungary) in 1833. As he had his first child
in Ocs in 1860, I suppose that his parents died there. But how can I find where
they were buried? Ocs is a little town (200 inhabitants) and I don't think
(although I should verify) that there is a jewish cemetery there.What was the use
in these times? If there was no jewish cemetery in the town of death, were jewa
buried in a cemetery of a larger town? Is there a list of jewish cemeterie in
Hungary? Thank you for your help and excuse may bad english

MODERATOR NOTE: You might want to check the JewishGen website, under the tab
"Databases" for "Burial Registry (JOWBR)" you will be able to check out the list
of cemeteries by country included in the database.

Born in Uhersky Brod in the Czech republic Olga would have been an Austrian
citizen I assume.

Krakow was then part of Galicia in Austria but did Jews have Polish or
Austrian citizenship at that time?

Her husband born Pinchas BRANDMANN was born in Tarnow on 8 November
1876. Would he have automatically been Polish or Austrian or Russian? His
parents were Efraim born in Mielec and Malke born in Tarnow.

Daniela,

In 1917 the independent Poland and Czechia did not exist.

Those countries have been established in 1918, following the end of WWI and
the disintegration of the Austro-Hungarian empire.

Since Uhersky Brod, Tarnow and Mielec were all part of Austro-Hungary, Olga
and Pinchas were also subject of this Empire.

Ukraine SIG Discussion group passes a new milestone! #ukraine

Janette Silverman
 

Dear Friends:
I am pleased to announce that this past week, Ukraine SIG discussion
group members have passed the 3,900 mark! To give you an idea of the
significance, at the time of the conference last summer there were 3,800
members and at that same time in 2014 we had 3,400 members!

I am also pleased that so many of you are actively engaged in one area
or another as volunteers - we have about 500 volunteers, most as town
leaders. There are over 300 town leaders. There are plenty of
volunteer opportunities still available. Over 600 towns still do not
have town leaders.Other towns have town leaders but no KehilLinks Owner
= while many town leaders take on both, there are plenty or towns that
still need either a town leader, a KehilaLinks owner or both. Look at
the town page of your interest and see what is happening there, whether
there is a town leader or KehilaLinks owner and the status of projects.

Best,
Janette

Vlkanec (with diacritic sign over c), county Kutna Hora, region
Stredocesky kraj. The distance between Golcuv Jenikov and Vlkanec on the
road is only 7 km = 4 miles.

Dear all,

Celia's death is a great loss. She helped me greatly in my family searches
over the years. She was very kind when we met.

My last contact with her was last August. I quote it in full as it
expresses Celia's deep concern for the preservation of family memories and
her constant encouragement of others:

"Dear Dominique,
Your wonderful book arrived this morning.
It will keep the memory of your family alive for ever. The inhuman
suffering of our relatives must never be forgotten.
I will read the book very carefully and remember the family.
Once again thanks a million and congratulations.
My best wishes as always
Celia

Verdun research #france

bernerfolk
 

I am trying to determine whether a family which emigrated >from Verdun
in August 1898 was who they claimed to be ....or... actually my family
traveling incognito. I am led to believe the city records for that
period no longer exist so I'm hoping to find something >from the Jewish
community (or any other source) that confirms either family was there.

The possible surnames are FREIDENBERG(FRAJDENBERG),GRYMBERG,or MODLINSKI.

Any assistance or suggestions would be greatly appreciated.

Re: Latvia town sounds like "crook"? #latvia

Hi Joan,

"Crook" is most likely Kriukai which is in Northern Lithuania very close to
the Latvia border.

Hoping this helps you with your search.
