Mervyn Lakin MD <mervl@...>
 

I am looking for Bea ? who was a stockbroker(she recommended an airline
stock to my aunt when the company started air service to Puerto Rico),
Her husband was a dentist who died in a dental chair during a procedure.
This took place in the Eisenhower period(after 1952). Can anyone help with
this description.

Website for unclaimed assets #general

Marge Dallis <ar614@...>
 

Israel Pickholtz asked about access to names on a list of
unclaimed assets for places other than New York. The National
Assn. of Unclaimed Property Adminstrators has such a site.
You can reach them at http://www.unclaimed.org
Once you get connected, you can click onto the state you wish.
This site has names and addresses.
I am sending this to the entire group, as well as to Israel,
because I feel that this is valuable information for many
of us.

I was doing a search on the WEB for something totally unrelated to genealogy
and one of the hits that came back was for a web site address of
http://home.earthlink.net/~middleton/topten.html which when you go to it
lists itself as being the "Best Genealogy Links on the WWW".

I don't know if anyone else has stumbled across this site but there may be
some value to fellow Jewish Genealogical researchers.

Standards for Family History #general

Herbert Gursky
 

One of the issues over which I have been at variance with my wife and
others in preparing our family history is what information to include,
beyond the usual vital statistics. A recent article in the Washington Post
(Outlook Section, 14 February 1999)relating to the writing of obituaries
reveals the journalist's perspective. E. R. Shipp, the paper's Ombudsman,
writes of the distinction between death notices, which are classified ads,
and obituaries, which are news stories. In particular obituaries may
contain unflattering information such as unpleasant divorces, criminal
activities or other information that could be embarassing to the family but
essential to the journalist.

I believe this is an approach that we can adopt in preparing a family
history. The same article notes that obituaries are among the most popular
sections of a newspaper. Somehow contemplating the lives of others is a
satisfying human experience that we can try to cultivate in trying to
develop an effective human history.

Murska Sobota #hungary

Judith A. Bacskai <jbacskai@...>
 

Dear Denise Larson,
Your notes in October and yesterday prompted me to share my experiences
with searching for records on my maternal grandmother and her family on
Murska Sobota in Slovenia. The town was also called Muraszombat in
Hungarian, and Olsnitz in German. In the FHL microfilm collections I found
the birth records of my grandmother and her 8 siblings, including the early
20th century "hungarisation" annotations of all the males (Neuman changed
to Timar), as well as birth, marriage and death data on THEIR parents and
grandparents. Among other things, I thus discovered that my gggf Simon
Neuman was born in Murska Sobota around 1814, married Netl Rabenstein in
1839, and died there at age 70. >from so much distance in time and space,
that was an almost unreal, very moving experience.
In case it's useful to you or someone else, the microfilm numbers in the
FHL collection for Murska Sobota are:
Jewish records: #642935
Civil records 1868-1918: #1793123
#1793249-1793253,1793262
#1793426-1793427
#1794025-1794026
#1794275-1794277
Send me direct e-mail if anyone needs to know what data are contained on
the individual films.
