I thought the last Canadian census released was 1901, not 1910 ?

It provides much more powerful search capabilities than the version
currently available at the branch libraries or at www.familysearch.com.

The version available at the Library provides for Title, Subject, and
Keyword searches, along with the familiar Surname, Location and Author
searches. I entered "Canada" and "Jewish" as keywords and found that
considerable indexes have been made of available Canadian censuses for
Jewish persons. Since the Canadian censuses are not indexed overall, this
is an outstanding resource for those of us doing Canadian research (such
as my search for Bookbinders in Winnipeg and Barenbergs in Toronto).

What is especially exciting is being able to immediately get the
materials cited in the Catalog - a unique experience only to be had in
Salt Lake City. Unfortunately, my Bookbinders and Barenbergs arrived in
Canada after 1910 (the most recently released Canadian Census). So, I
will have to keep on looking. However, if your family got to Canada
prior to 1910, the Canadian Censuses, especially with the Jewish indices,
can be a great resource.

Convenient access to all available US and Canadian Censuses, and a far
more powerful computerized version of the catalog are yet two more
reasons to join your fellow Jewish Genealogists at the 20th Annual
International Conference on Jewish Genealogy (http://www.iajgs.org/slcy2k)
this coming July.

JewishGen Launches the AuctionHouse! #poland

Carol Skydell <skydell@...>
 

to JRI-Poland

Back in October, when JewishGen released its first
OctoberFACTS...(which indicated a very poor showing of those who use
JewishGen vs. those who support it financially), we received a number of
wonderful ideas on how we can generate the revenue so desperately needed in
order to continue providing the Jewish community worldwide with information
of interest to those researching their family histories.

Back then, many of you came through with financial support, via
http://www.jewishgen.org/jewishgen-erosity/ but once
again it was a short lived phenomena. Along with the financial support
many of you took the time to suggest activities that showed potential as
revenue streams. One of those suggestions hit the bullseye ....it provided
an ongoing means of raising some funds, did it in a fun way, and could
indeed be a treasure trove for the participants. We turned the project
over to our Assistant Webmaster, John Berman and after several months of
work, and re-working we are announcing it today.

With spring cleaning time amongst us, JewishGen has come up with an Auction
with a difference! Ours is an auction where there are buyers but no
sellers! Instead of sellers we are inviting you to become donors....

Think about it... if every one of the 35,000 who have a listing in the
JGFF, the 15,000 of you who participate in the mailing lists hosted by this
organization made a donation of just one item (clothing, office supplies,
books, collectibles, etc..).... many projects and services JewishGen has
had to put "on hold" today, could possibly become a reality tomorrow!!

Our auction site is also something we feel could be a fun and exciting way
to facilitate the following:

1. clean out attics, basements, closets and drawers
2. acquire more stuff to fill attics, basements, closets and drawers
3. provide a forum for commercial companies to have visibility by donating
their products or services
4. share in a cooperative way to support JewishGen painlessly, and have a
great time doing it

So, with a smile on our faces and hope in our hearts, we are
today Introducing JewishGen's AuctionHouse

Here's how it will work:

Anyone with an item of interest, be it a stamp collection, camera,
electronic equipment, clothing, household articles, office equipment,
etc....etc....etc.. Anyone with anything at all that is saleable,
donates it to JewishGen and we sell it through the JewishGen AuctionHouse
Program. Whoever buys the item, pays for it through JewishGen's secure
credit card system or mails us a check/cheque.

JewishGen uses the money to support all the programs and projects we offer
and to enable the addition of new ones to the roster; the donor gets the
tax write-off; the buyer gets the item after buyer and donor arrange for
shipment to the buyer.... The donor, the buyer, and JewishGen all benefit....

So folks, take a look around your house, your yard, your apartment, your
office.... Check out what's sitting around that is still usable, but you
can't remember the last time you used or wore it <grin> Consider donating
it to a very worthy cause.... the continued financial support of JewishGen.

To become a donor, or a buyer, you need to register ....so come on
down....<grin> The door is open....the auction is waiting...

Help us launch the JewishGen AuctionHouse!

List some items now!

Bookmark this URL http://www.jewishgen.org/auction/ and come back often!

Bid on on things you can't resist! <grin>

Let's have some FUN folks.... while we all support JewishGen!

Lodz PSA Death Records, 1878-1898 #poland

Seflaum@...
 

As you recall, indices to nearly 20,000 city of Lodz births >from 1878 through
1898 were just recently added to the JRI-Poland database, as part of the Lodz
Jewish Records Indexing-Poland / Polish State Archives Project (Lodz PSA).
This project is the effort to obtain indices to the late 19th century Jewish
vital records of the city of Lodz and 37 surrounding towns still held in the
Lodz Archives, but NOT microfilmed by the LDS (Mormons).

o Why the Lodz PSA Project is Important

The city of Lodz PSA Project is critical to many of us because it holds the
answers to long-standing mysteries of where and when our parents or
grandparents, uncles, aunts or cousins, were born, married or died. Many
researchers have found those long sought after answers among the indices
already online. Unlike the microfilmed Lodz Jewish vital records (1826-1877),
the later years are not otherwise accessible to us.

With the earlier addition of indices to the city of Lodz marriage records
(1878-1898), a total of about 35,000 indices are now part of the online
JRI-Poland database, as part of the Lodz PSA Project. You now have an
opportunity to become part of the successful conclusion of this important
city of Lodz project...read on to find out how.

o Final Phase of the City of Lodz Project: Deaths 1878-1898

The final phase of the city of Lodz PSA project is the indexing of Lodz
Jewish death records (1878-1898). The indexing of these records has already
begun and will be completed by the JRI-Poland team in Warsaw in just a matter
of weeks! The balance needed to complete this project is $2,280.

o How You Can Participate

How will these valuable indices become available to you, to search >from the
comfort of your own home? Only if you take the initiative to personally
contribute the funds necessary to complete this phase of project.

We have come this far thanks to the generous contributions of some very
dedicated supporters, but 96% of Lodz researchers have still not yet stepped
forward to contribute to this project. What this means in actual numbers is
that only 50 out of over 1,200 Lodz researchers have contributed.

Do the math: if only 127 Lodz researchers contribute Chai ($18) now, this
project can be successfully completed...think of it! Without your
contribution, this final phase of the city of Lodz PSA Project will not be
completed.

Please give what you can so that all current and future generations of Lodz
researchers can benefit >from this project. Your contribution in U.S. Dollars
may be mailed to:

JRI - Poland / JewishGen - a clarification #poland

Jewish Records Indexing - Poland
 

A number of recent queries and discussions have shown that there
may be some confusion about the relationship of JRI-Poland and
JewishGen.

As a result of the April 11th post on JewishGen in which a Wyszkow
researcher referred to our data as a "Jewishgen database," we
would like to take this opportunity to clear up any possible confusion.

Jewish Records Indexing-Poland's database and mailing list are
hosted by JewishGen, but:

Jewish Records Indexing - Poland is an independent, non-profit,
U.S. tax exempt organization under Section 501(c)(3) of the
U.S. Internal Revenue Code.

Please note the word "independent" which is intended to emphasize
that JRI-Poland operations and fundraising are separate >from those
of JewishGen.

Moreover, the contract between JRI-Poland and JewishGen requires
a useage-based payment by JRI-Poland to JewishGen.

This brings us to the subject of JRI-Poland fundraising.

As long-time readers of the JRI-Poland Discussion Group and users
of the JRI-Poland database are aware, our fundraising has largely
been "shtetl-specific." That is, we have asked our supporters to
donate funds for the indexing of the records >from their shtetls.

However, as JRI-Poland's efforts continue to grow, there will also
be funds needed for operational costs that go beyond shtetl-specific
targets.

As opportunities for progress in the world of Jewish genealogy multiply,
so do the needs for contributions and support, and we know that this
can become confusing.

As we always have, we urge you to contribute to JewishGen for the
good work it does and for the many benefits you obtain through the
use of its web site. And we urge you to remember that JRI-Poland
is a separate organization, that our needs are different, and our
ability to continue to grow and serve our constituency depends on
your generosity.

For those of us involved in Polish Jewish genealogical research,
JRI-Poland is making our past accessible. Please help us to
continue to do so.

New researcher #hungary

hatam dedi <hatam@...>
 

David Hatam

Raanana 43451

hatam@zahav.net.il

Dear researchers!

My name is David Hatam.
My mother's family is >from Hungary, and I'm researching her family for
years, but only lately I'm working with the internet, and found the h-sig.

I think that maybe some of you can help me with my research.
I write all families and places I research, and I ask everyone who can help
me to write me how he can .

First of all, there are several organizations who research Hungarian
genealogy, and maybe you haven't heard about them:
1. the museum in Tsfat : hungmus@hungjewmus.org.il.
2. Zichron Hungaria - an orthodox institute that deals especially with
Rabbies families . Helped me a lot - you must write them:
Zikaron
P.O. BOX 703
Bnei Brak
Israel
972-3-6189194
Fax: 972-3-5783514
3. SIG of Hungarian genealogist :
Menashe Davidowits
34 Harimon St.
Ramat Hasharon
Israel
972-3-5495661


Okay, now I'll write all I research:

1. Blau Family >from Budapest.

2. Stern Family >from : Kaba , Nagyvarad,Bekessgyula,Tulka (1818-1890) , and
in 1890 the family name was changed to Csillag and the family moved to
Ujpest.

3.Engel family - all I know is about Juliana Engel, who married Joszef Stern
in 1850 and they lived in Nagyvarad and maybe in Tulka, but I'll be glad to
hear about every information of the Engel family.

4. Klein family >from Dunafuldvar.

5. Schon family - all I know is about Fani Schon who married Simon Klein and
they lived, at least in the 1850's, in Dunafuldvar,but I'll be glad to
hear about every information of the Schon family.

from families 2-5 I know about a few famous people, but I don't know exactly
what are the connections.
About these people:
A. Szekely (family name) Aladar (1870-1940) . A very famous Photographer in
Hungary. His original family name was Bleyer. Was born in Gyula.
B. Laszlo (family name) Fulop Elek (first name) (1869-1937)- a very famous
painter. Was born in Budapest and later lived in London. His original family
name was laub.
C. The Ronai brothers >from BekesGyula :
One of both was Hermin Ronai, who has births at town Gyula on on year of
1877 and dead at Budapest on year of 1926. She was an actriss. She studied
in the Actor-Scool of Cheer-Theatre at Budapest. She was an exelent
character-actress and comica, the one of the most evaluated and popular
provincial actresses at h?r time. During the longest time she has worked on
the National Theatre at town Miskolc, where she was the one of the powers.
H?r early cut course ended as a perpetual member of the Vorosmarty Theatre
at town Szekesfehervar.

The second of the both was Mihaly Ronai, who has births at town Eger on on
year of 1879 and dead at Budapest on year of 1945 during the holocaust. He
was a writher on the early time of his life, and a animals-doctor after.
During the first case of his life, he was a pioneer of the new hungarian
narrative short stories. During the second case of his life, he was the
pioneer of the animal - pathology, of the foods-higienic organisation and of
the educations of the animals-doctors. He has worked as a baker- apprentice
and a tool-smith befor the beginning of the studies at the university. He
got diploma and certificate of doctors of animal-doctors at Budapest. He
stepped in the capital service in the year of 1901, where he, as a
chief-animal-doctor of the capital organised the scientific medical service
of the current big city food supply. He went into the pension on the year of
1940 as an animal-sanitaric-senior civil servant. He is killd by the
fasistal people.


His sort stories are published in generally in the newspapers between 1904 -
1908. They are characterised by darkelly shaded realism. After big
impressioning literatural stepping over he became deaf and as an auther, he
ended his literatural life and he lived only for his scientific activities.
He written a meat-industrial learning book (1910) and got a lot of cours,
what formed the current system of the meat-investigations in Hungary. He
published the first professional yournal between years of 1905 - 1914,
founded the trade union of the animal-doctors in the year of 1919. As a
leader of the meat-industrial trade union supposed the transormations od the
education of the animal-doctors, the lifting of the practical times in the
education's times.


The most important pathological reseurches conserning of the questions of
the inner secretions, of the pigmentation, finally of the growing old. He
shouwn a new direction in the forming out of the melanosarcomas and first
valuated well its importance in the animal and human pathology.


It seems both people were classed among the rich juwesh people.


Mr Mih?ly Ronai had a son, who's name is Andras Mihaly Ronai, who has births
at Budapest on on year of 1913 and dead at Budapest on year of 1992. He were

reporter of the newspaper Pesti Naplo at Rom >from 1935, at Paris >from 1938.
After caming home he were in labour-camp as a working-soldier. He were a
reporter of different newspapers among 1945 - 1957. He were the reporter of
the most important domestic newspapers Nepszabadsag after 1957.


His poesis were strongly intellectual. He translated poems of franch, italic
and germanic poets.

D. I know that the first jewish female Doctor in Hungary was related too .
Her family name was Schlesinger.

(that's all about these people)


6. Adler family >from Budapest. I know that this family lived in Budapest
since 1850 and maybe even before. Some of this family changed Adler to
Adorjan , and there was a famous novelist : Sandor. Most of the Adorjan
family lives in Australia and USA, and there is no connection with them. I'd
like to know more .

7.Maisner / Meisner family.

8. Mandel family.


9. Silberer family

10.Kohut family

11. Margittai/Margitta/Margaretten family

12. Erman family

13. Kasash/Kasas Family (before Kasash it was Kraus)

14. Family of Rabbi Haim Kittse - Schlesinger >from Albertirsa.
He was a famous Rabbi . Details about him:
Rabbi Chaim (Hayyim) Kittsee (1772-1849) ben (the son of) Isaac Kittsee
(Margaliot) (1740-1810) and of Hanna. Isaac Kittsee was the son of Haim and
of Jetel. Rabbi Chaim Kittsee was a Hungarian Rabbi. He was born in Alt-Ofen
(Obuda) were his father was the head of the "Beth Din". He served as a
Dayyan (judge) in Veszprem and >from 1824 as Rabbi of Albertirsa, near
Budapest. He took part in the rabbinical conference at Paks in 1844 and was
among the signatories to the protest against the Bruswick Conference held in
that year. He was a great Talmudic and left near 60 works in manuscript like
“Ozar Hayyim”, “Orah Hayyim” and “Yoreh De'ah”. His name appears in the
Encyclopaedia Judaica.
Chaim Kittsse has a sister who married Shimon Kelin, the son of Rabbi Jacob
Klein.
(Mahatsit Hashekel) Rabbi Chaim Kittsee (Schlesinger) married Haja Sara Bril
in 1797, the daughter of Rabbi Israel Bril (1749, Tevel - 1808 Vorplata) and
of Chajale (d. 1838) >from Vorplata. Rabbi Israel Bril was a Rabbi in
Vorplata, he was the son of Yehuda Leiv >from Tevel or Adasztevel.
Chaim’s wife’s older sister married Rabbi Amram Chassida (Rosenbaum)
(1790-1830). Their daughter (d. 1837 in the earthquake in Zephat) m. Rabbi
Isaac Jacob Blum (d. 1851). Their son Amram Blum (1834-1907) was Rabbi, he
had seven children:

Anther sister of Haja Sara Brilin married Kohut and had a son Israel Kohut
that his son was a famous Rabbi Alexander Kohut.

After the death of his first wife, Chaim Kittsee married the widow of Rabbi
Moshe Kanzishe the daughter of Rabbi Mordechai Tasek >from Pressburg. She had
a son named Rabbi Abraham Kanzishe >from Yamerung.


I know that Rabbi Haim Kittse was related to the famous family Margaliot -
Yaffe , but I don't know exactly how, and it's very interesting to me. I
know the famous Rabbi Israel David Margaliot Yaffe >from Pezing was his
relative, and Mordechai Yaffe mar. too.
As written, Haim Kitsse's grandfather was called also Haim, and I know he or
his family came >from Kopcseny, a city in Burgenland, but in the records of
this city I didn't find them. I think they came to this place even before
1700, >from Vinna, stayed there a few years and moved to other place.
I ask >from anyone who knows something about the Margaliot - Yaffe family or
the Schlesinger family to write me, even if he doesn't think there is a
connection.

Some of the missing links of Haim kittse's (second) descendants : 1.
Schlesinger >from Ballassagyarmat. 2. Schlesinger >from TiszaLok. 3.
Schlesinger >from Harsanyi.
4. Schwarts >from Kish-Araniosh . 5. Schwarts >from Ermihalyfalva. 6 .
Schwarts and Schlesinger >from Szarvas.7. Grunwald - Gere >from Medier. 8.
Kohn >from Csaba.
9. Frize? - maybe >from Csaba too.


That's it, and it's not a little. I really ask for anyone who heard about
these families and places to write me . All the places again : (I ask anyone
who knows something about these places to write me) Dunafuldvar, kaba,
nagyvarad, tulka, Szarvas, Ballasagyarmat, uyfalu, Gyuma, kopcseny, tevel,
edesztevel, mezotur, Tisaluk, kisharaniosh, Harsanyi, Medier, Bekesgyula,
Devabanya (Weinern), Varpalota, Csaba and more.

I'd like to hear about any source : books, web sites, people and more.

Dear researchers!

My name is David Hatam.
My mother's family is >from Hungary, and I'm researching her family for
years, but only lately I'm working with the internet, and found the h-sig.

I think that maybe some of you can help me with my research.
I write all families and places I research, and I ask everyone who can help
me to write me how he can .

First of all, there are several organizations who research Hungarian
genealogy, and maybe you haven't heard about them:
1. the museum in Tsfat : hungmus@hungjewmus.org.il.
2. Zichron Hungaria - an orthodox institute that deals especially with
Rabbies families . Helped me a lot - you must write them:

Okay, now I'll write all I research:

1. Blau Family >from Budapest.

2. Stern Family >from : Kaba , Nagyvarad,Bekessgyula,Tulka (1818-1890) , and
in 1890 the family name was changed to Csillag and the family moved to
Ujpest.

3.Engel family - all I know is about Juliana Engel, who married Joszef Stern
in 1850 and they lived in Nagyvarad and maybe in Tulka, but I'll be glad to
hear about every information of the Engel family.

4. Klein family >from Dunafuldvar.

5. Schon family - all I know is about Fani Schon who married Simon Klein and
they lived, at least in the 1850's, in Dunafuldvar,but I'll be glad to
hear about every information of the Schon family.

from families 2-5 I know about a few famous people, but I don't know exactly
what are the connections.
About these people:
A. Szekely (family name) Aladar (1870-1940) . A very famous Photographer in
Hungary. His original family name was Bleyer. Was born in Gyula.
B. Laszlo (family name) Fulop Elek (first name) (1869-1937)- a very famous
painter. Was born in Budapest and later lived in London. His original family
name was laub.
C. The Ronai brothers >from BekesGyula :
One of both was Hermin Ronai, who has births at town Gyula on on year of
1877 and dead at Budapest on year of 1926. She was an actriss. She studied
in the Actor-Scool of Cheer-Theatre at Budapest. She was an exelent
character-actress and comica, the one of the most evaluated and popular
provincial actresses at h?r time. During the longest time she has worked on
the National Theatre at town Miskolc, where she was the one of the powers.
H?r early cut course ended as a perpetual member of the Vorosmarty Theatre
at town Szekesfehervar.

The second of the both was Mihaly Ronai, who has births at town Eger on on
year of 1879 and dead at Budapest on year of 1945 during the holocaust. He
was a writher on the early time of his life, and a animals-doctor after.
During the first case of his life, he was a pioneer of the new hungarian
narrative short stories. During the second case of his life, he was the
pioneer of the animal - pathology, of the foods-higienic organisation and of
the educations of the animals-doctors. He has worked as a baker- apprentice
and a tool-smith befor the beginning of the studies at the university. He
got diploma and certificate of doctors of animal-doctors at Budapest. He
stepped in the capital service in the year of 1901, where he, as a
chief-animal-doctor of the capital organised the scientific medical service
of the current big city food supply. He went into the pension on the year of
1940 as an animal-sanitaric-senior civil servant. He is killd by the
fasistal people.


His sort stories are published in generally in the newspapers between 1904 -
1908. They are characterised by darkelly shaded realism. After big
impressioning literatural stepping over he became deaf and as an auther, he
ended his literatural life and he lived only for his scientific activities.
He written a meat-industrial learning book (1910) and got a lot of cours,
what formed the current system of the meat-investigations in Hungary. He
published the first professional yournal between years of 1905 - 1914,
founded the trade union of the animal-doctors in the year of 1919. As a
leader of the meat-industrial trade union supposed the transormations od the
education of the animal-doctors, the lifting of the practical times in the
education's times.


The most important pathological reseurches conserning of the questions of
the inner secretions, of the pigmentation, finally of the growing old. He
shouwn a new direction in the forming out of the melanosarcomas and first
valuated well its importance in the animal and human pathology.


It seems both people were classed among the rich juwesh people.


Mr Mih?ly Ronai had a son, who's name is Andras Mihaly Ronai, who has births
at Budapest on on year of 1913 and dead at Budapest on year of 1992. He were
a poet translater and publisher. He ended his juristic studied at the town

After caming home he were in labour-camp as a working-soldier. He were a
reporter of different newspapers among 1945 - 1957. He were the reporter of
the most important domestic newspapers Nepszabadsag after 1957.


His poesis were strongly intellectual. He translated poems of franch, italic
and germanic poets.

Dear H-siggers,
In the summary of H-Sig for April 11, there were two questions, and I
am surprised that nobody answered. First somebody looked for a place called
Kochitzh, then somebody else for information concerning Kosice.
It is clear that Kochitzh is just the phonetic spelling for Kosice, now in
Slovakia under the name of Kassa.
If you go to www.jewishgen.org/Hungary and click on "Jewishgen Archives",
you can search for 'Kosice or Kassa' and find 137 messages dealing with
this city.
Good Luck,

Hello Friends!

I would love to hear >from anone who might know anything about these
Jewish communities or the family names I am searching:

a) Salgotarjan, in the county of Nograd in the north. Elli (b. 1892)
and Loli WINTER were born to Dr. Simon WINTER (1869-1943) and Betti
SEIDNER. Betti was the daughter of Mor and Maria (nee FANY) SEIDNER.
Betti left her husband and went to Budapest with her daughters. I
believe she had a brother there. Simon WINTER remarried, though I know
nothing of his second wife. She is not buried with him in Salgotarjan.

b) Somogysard (formerly called Sard) in Somogy county south of Lake
Balaton. It is a village not far >from Nagybajom and Kaposvar. Rudolf
GLOCKNER (umlaut over the o) was born there in 1887. I know that there
were some siblings, one being a sister called Bozsi/Erzsebet/Elizabeth.
As a young man, Rudolf changed his name to Rezso GABOR, went to Budapest
