Inies/Ennis from Humenne #hungary

Terry Steinberg <ts714@...>
 

My grandmother was >from Humenne, my grandparents were married there,
and my mother and her siblings were born there. We do not know my
grandmother's maiden name and would greatly appreciate any info anyone
can give me regarding my family. Unfortunately, my mother is the only
one alive >from her immediate family and she left Europe when she was 3
or 4.

Grandfather- Tobias Inies (I think that was the name-later Ennis).
Originally >from Dobromil/Przemsyl in Poland/Ukraine. Went to Humenne
to be an apprentice baker, probably about 1893-1895.
Grandmother- Pepie ?
Married- 1897-1900
Pepie- born 1883 or 1884
Children- Raphael- born 1904-1905
Harry- born approx 1910
Ruth- born approx 1915
Anna (later Shirley- my mother)- born 1919

Tobias came to the U.S. about 1921, the rest of the family probably in
1924 (based on my mother's recollection and a search of ship voyages
on cimorelli.com.

Thanks,
Terry Steinberg

Hungarian genealogy resources #hungary

A woman named Diane has an incredibly useful site with many links, including
a large list of Hungarian genealogy terms translated into English; a sampler
to translate old Hungarian script into English letters; and lots more. I found
this site by searching another great one, put up by James Bogardi at a site
known as Radix, which is full of great links and data

Radix: http://www.bogardi.com/gen/g060.htm
Diane's links: http://geocities.com/Heartland/Plains/7347/tokaj2.html

If you are searching anywhere in the old Hungary of the Austro-Hungarian
empire you should see what these folks provide.
Happy 1999!

GrŸnwald books #hungary

Mehadrin@...
 

While in Jerusalem last week I found copies of an interesting series of books by Rabbi Y Y Grunwald, who was for many years rabbi in Columbus Ohio, and a major writer on Hungarian Jewish religious history. (I found a good selection of these books at Lichtenstein & Holder---Kikar Shabat, at the place where Straus meets Meah SHearim and Malchei Yisrael) He wrote a biography of Maharam Shick, a history of religious conflicts in Hungary, a book about prominent Hungarian rabbis and books about several communities. (He also quotes a family history he wrote of the Rosenthal family of Budapest, but I have never seen a copy, perhaps it was privately published) I purchased one about Huncovce, Obuda, and Nove Mesto (Ir Chadash). The books were not cheap, or I would have acquired the whole set, but they were available. They are full of names, transcripts of old communal archives made before the first world war, and of old gravestones, family names and information, and are a treasure trove.

Looking for NISHE from Bobruysk #belarus

Mikhoyel Basherives <mikhoyel@...>
 

Forgive me if this enquiry is not appropriate to this listserve.
My family is >from Bobruysk & nearby. Has anyone ever heard of the male
name NISHE? A half brother of my great grandmother was named Yisroel-Nishe
& no one seems to have heard of the name. I have wondered if it is perhaps
a shortened form of a more common name such as Menashe the way Srul is
derived >from Yisroel & Ides >from Yehudis, etc..
Thank you.
