* References about rabinical families (continued) #hungary

Tom Venetianer <tom.vene@...>
 

Hello again,

Yesterday I wrote: I am looking for books or any other sources of
information about rabbis and rabinical families born in Slovakia
(Austria-Hungary) in the period of 1750-1850.

Probably I didn't expressed myself quite clearly. Here is what I am looking
for:

I run into a dead-end with my family search because the town and region
from where it descends (Liptovsky Mikulas and the Liptov county) has no
more vital records left. They were all whipped out by the Nazis and
communists. The cemetery was leveled.

Therefor, unless I find new means of search it will be impossible to
progress. A thought crossed my mind: in the period of 1750-1850 many of my
ancestors were rabbis, mohels and quite prominent Talmud scholars. Wouldn't
it be possible that there is a register of Slovak rabbis and/or scholars
where I can find them, thus new family information? This is what I am
looking for.

If you are aware of any such publication please let me know in private.
Many thanks in advance.

A joyous Thanksgiving to all
Tom

GUTLOHN and LUGOSHER #hungary

Patricia J. Weisshaus <patjw28@...>
 

I am doing this for a friend who does not yet have a computer. She is
looking for Gabriel Gutlohn born 28 March 1862, father Samuel Gutlohn and
Martha Klein (?). She is also looking for Gustav Lugosher, born 1830 who
was a professor of music. Both of these people were >from Budapest.

Can someone please help this lady?

Thanks

Re: Old Budapest city directories - lookups accomplished #hungary

Lebn@...
 

The lookups that Janos Bogardi did for the group were excellent and for the
BIEN surname, it solved at least one mystery for us. This was a wonderful
free service and I just sent my personal thanks to him.

On another note, I am still on hold with the Hungarian National Library, my
personal opinion is that it has been an outrageous amount of wait time for
what I believe was a simple question about their city directories.

ASCHNER-Hradiste, Kocise, Wien, Spisska Novy Ves #hungary

Rakoff125
 

In searching my ASCHNER roots several names have come up, that I don't know
anything about, on various on line searches. Recently I spied this in a AJCS
cemetary report for "Mohacs is located at 45.59 longitude / 18.42
latitude, 50km >from Szekszard, in Baranya, ... A noteworthy Jew buried in this
Neolog cemetery is Aschner Lipot. "
-and elsewhere I came upon this (translation would be profoundly appreciated)
Emlekezes Aschner Liptra az Egyesult Izzo centenariuman 454. old. (10. sz.)
Kituntetesunk.
EGY FeNYES KARRIER
Iden Horvath Jozsef, a Tungsram-Schreder vezet je es reszben birtokosa kapta
az Aschner Lipot-d jat, amit az "ev menedzsere" elismereskent is szoktak
aposztrofalni

The Terezin deportation material had this:
Aschner,Max (24.2.1897,Hradiste pod Vratnom,3.7.1942)
-13647/1942
Aschner,Rosa Sara (21.6.1870,Vrbovce,28.12.1943)
-36328/1943
I am wondering if it might be mother and son. My gt grandfather Adolph Aschner
was born in Hradiste in 1861. His parents Salomon ASCHNER and Netti
(Ernestine?) LOW'Y had lived there, Iglo,(Spisska Novy Ves), and Kassa
(Kosice). He had a brother Sigmund and sisters Fani and Josephine (Pepi).
Fani married a Mr. BUCHWALD in Wien and their child Malvina came to the US as
a governess for the Gould family.Mimi (Buchwald) Grossberg , the noted
Austrian writer, is a cousin. I am also seeking to find out what happened
to cousin Victor Aschner and his father Sigmund, (Adolph's brother) who lived
in Wien in the IX district, mail ceased in the mid-30s.
Also, I also believe there is a street in Budapest named for Lipot Aschner.
Now this is not a very common name so I wonder if there are any of you out
there who might know anything about these people that can help me fill in my
tree. I would be most grateful. thank you. Linda Rakoff, Newton, MA

Re: Austrian War Archive in Vienna #general

Following up the thread of Austro Hungarian Military Records, anyone
interested should read the microfilm at the nearest Family History Center
#6085770, written by Stephen Blodgett, entitled "Greatgrandfather was in the
Imperial Cavalry...Using Austrian Military Records as an Aid to writing Family
History...you will see that ALL the military records which were stored in
Vienna were filmed by Salt Lake, are available by order at the usual
$3.75/film, are in handwritten German & difficult to read, dont have a huge
amount of information, but it's a thrill to find an ancestor on them ... they
include a physical description, place of origin, religion and other service
related details...there are about 1500 records and some research aids...good
luck...Jane Lowenkron Foss

Well you guys, thanks to everyone that replied re Baron Hirsch fund and
search possibilities.

Susan Lieberman and I will be going, weather permitting, to Baron Hirsch
Cemetery on Staten Island (and also Mt. Richmond and United Hebrew if at
all possible) on 12/6. We will spend the day among the brambles and poison
ivy. This is the last call for folks who might want something looked at or
up. I'm bringing a camera and I will send anyone who wants a picture of the
tombstone. (Please don't offer to pay--I'm just passing on the kindnesses I
have received >from JewishGeners. It's a good feeling.)

Re: Gerald Tulchinsky #general

Marla Waltman Daschko <waltman@...>
 

Gerald Tulchinsky is a Professor of History at Queen's University in
Kingston, Ontario, Canada. Professor Tulchinsky is not the author of
"The Jews in Toronto" (it was written by Stephen Speisman) but of
"Taking Root: The Origins of the Canadian Jewish Community". He has
also written a number of other publications on Canadian and Jewish
history. I do not know if Professor Tulchinsky's family comes from
Tulchin although it appears likely, given their name, that they lived
there at some point in time. I also do not know if he has been active in
researching his own genealogical records.

A short bio for Professor Tulchinsky can be found on the Queen's
University website at http://qsilver.queensu.ca/history/faculty.htm If
you wish to contact him I suggest that you write to him at the History
Department at Queen's University as I do not believe that he has e-mail.
