Dear Itzik,

My parents were both >from Hungary. In the 30's men were conscripted at age 16. Jews in the 30's and early 40's went into forced labor vs the military. I have records >from both Yad vashem and the us holocaust museum of uncles that perished in labor battalions. Another uncle survived and wrote to me a bit about his experience. My dad was brought to the US by family before his 16 birthday to avoid forced labor. I do not have info prior to the 30's.

1. Mandatory Military Service

Hello and Happy Passover Siggers,

I am wondering if anyone here knows if there was a Mandatory Military
Service in Hungary. At what age were people required to draft and for
how long?

The reason for my question is that I know my father had been drafted
to Military service of several years before WWII broke (he was born
1915). I know that he was released >from service and returned home.

Then, after WWII broke, he was drafted again to Forced Labor
Battalions around 1941.

I am trying to draw the timeline of his life events and I am missing
this piece.

Thank you all for your help,

Itzik Katz

Saregres community #hungary

georges.graner@...
 

Dear Siggers

I am looking for a Josef SCHWARZ who is supposed to be born in Saregres,
Erdiliget in 1886.

According to Wikipedia.hu, this village belongs to the county of Fejér.

According to my own edition of "Where once we walked", the local Jewish
community counted 5 people.  Therefore I can assume they worshipped in
another place. Where ?

Any help would  be welcomed.

Dear Siggers

I am looking for a Sarolta WEIBERGER who is supposed to be born in
Nagycigand in 1886.

According to Wikipedia.hu, this village belongs to the county of
Zemplen but has now merged with another city.

My own edition of "Where once we walked", quotes :"Nagyczigand, HSL.
This pre-World war I community was not found in BGN gazetteers"

HSL means Hebrew susbscription lists.

Do you have a suggestion for a place to look ?

Any help would be welcomed.

Found Index, need to find microfiche? Help? #belarus

Arthur Sissman
 

Hi,

I have found the index of the record of my grandfather Abraham Zisman in
the index of Mogilev Boys 1882-1889, but have never found the record.
Here is the info recorded on the index. The specific info has never
appeared in a database, as far as I can find.

Name Birth Yr . Index Father name
ZISMAN 1882 310 Nokhim-Ruvin

I have found the record of Shevel-Evel Zusman born 1886 on the same
index. He is my great uncle and Nokhim-Ruvin is my great grandfather. I
have seen his full record on Jewish Gen and even on Ancestry several
years later. I assume that 2 different translators translated the docs
and used different spellings Zisman/Zusman (which is preferred?). I have
also found the database for my great aunt with the reference to the
specific microfiche. Her name is translated Zisman also.

How can I find a reference to the actual microfiche for Abraham Sissman
and the data that it might provide. I have seen the link to my great
uncle and great aunt.

Thanks for the help!
Arthur Sissman

Phoenix Jewish Genealogy Group meeting, Sunday, April 8, 2018 #general

Emily Garber
 

Our next meeting will be this coming Sunday at the Valley of the Sun
Jewish Community Center, 12701 N. Scottsdale Rd, Scottsdale, Arizona.

During the first hour, Emily Garber will deliver a talk called "Learning Our
Craft: Online Opportunities for Improving Our Research Skills." If one
wishes to do quality research, one can never stop learning. Webcasts,
webinars, online courses, blogs, podcasts, FaceBook, YouTube,
discussion groups, wikis, these are a few of the plethora of
opportunities for genealogy enthusiasts to hone their skills online
often on their own and at their own pace. Since there are many
different learning styles, this talk will focus on types of online
learning opportunities (their strengths and weaknesses) and where one
may find them. We'll also discuss creating a personalized learning
plan for not only selecting the best online learning opportunities to
meet our needs and learning styles, but also fitting learning
opportunities into our busy lives.

The second hour of our meeting will be a mentoring session. We hope to
address your questions and provide answers that will help you advance
your research.

(Sumberg) Records in or about Pilvishok/Pilviskiai #general

Gary Morin <garymichaelmorin@...>
 

Greetings,

has anyone gone in search of Records in or about Pilvishok/Pilviskiai (formerly of
Poland, now of Lithuania)? Did you have any luck and, if so, where did you find
family history records? in Pilvishok/Pilviskiai or elsewhere, say Vilnius?

I'm searching for my grandfather's family, the last name is Sumberg. My
grandfather, Leon Sumberg, his parents, and most of his siblings left and came to
Boston and Worcester, MA. We know that one sister, Ester, did not leave and we
have no knowledge of what happened to her. On my great-grandfather's (Isadore
Sumberg) naturalization papers, he lists an Abraham Sumberg (b. ~1903), who we've
never heard of. My mother had never heard of an Abraham until I showed her the
citizenship paper, a year or so ago.

Am thinking of going in search of Sumberg history after the IAJGS conference, in
Warsaw, this August. any ideas or suggestions?

Thank you!
Gary M. Morin
