searching great grandfather Mannheimer #hungary

Albert Benedict
 

I am new in h-sig and would appreciate help in searching for further
further information on my great grandfather, Rabbi Frigyes Vitus?
Mannheimer also known according to his gravestone as Avrih Mannheimer
(Hebrew name) and Prof. V.Friedrich Mannheimer. Born in 1809 in
Reichenau (Austria?) and married Spitzer Zsofia (date and place
unknown). First worked outside of Hungary, then in Gyor, Pecs and
Veszprem as a theological teacher and preacher. After that he became a
theological teacher of the Iraelite Community of Pest. He died in
Budapest in 1888 and is buried in Salgotarjan cemetery. I would like to
learn where and when he married Zsofia, where he did his rabbinical
studies and the origin of the Mannheimers. I do not believe he was
related to the well-known Noah Mannheimer.

Thanks for any help that may be offerred.

Re: Fixed Name Adoption Lists/Hungary #hungary

As far as I know the Mormons filmed in Budapest at the National
Archives, and left copies there. The microfilming was of the copies
(masolat) that the congrregations had to submit for the creation of the
database of the country's vital statistics. On some records you can
tell because they say "masolat", and also at times name changes are
overwritten or in the margin.

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

I've had a few questions like the following snips about the Arva
megye list
of fixed surnames.


I would love to know where you found the list of fixed names taken
by Jews
from Arva Megye in 1787, and how you were able to photograph it?
A friend in Slovakia found it through a long search of an inventory
at the
archives at Bytca, which is the official archives for the current
district
of Slovakia which includes Orava (Arva megye). The archives scanned
it at a
very high resolution, and my friend emailed it. As far as I know
scanning
is a normal method of copying for this archives. I don't know if the
archives would have found it for a remote enquiry. I don't know what
costs
were involved. These matters were all handled in Slovakia.


I made some inquiries in town halls and at the
xyz Regional Archives and the Jewish Archives at the
Synagogue in Budapest, but had no luck in finding anything like
this,

Besides it being of Jewish interest, it was an official
administrative
document, and was bundled with other non-Jewish decrees of the same
period.
Government archives usually keep documents generated by the authority
they
represent. This list was not generated by the local Synagogue, and I
don't
know if a local Synagogue ever had a copy. We can only guess at what
paths
it might have taken during the last two centuries of
Slovakian/Hungarian
history. It is over 100 years, so may have been forewarded to the
Hungarian
central archives, then passed on after post-WWII border changes.
Documents
like these might have had quite a few voyages by horse and cart,
rail, and
motor vehicle since being signed with a wax seal.

Other documents such as the 1850s-1890s Jewish BDM registers and an
1850s
census of Jews of Arva were filmed by the Mormons in Bytca in (I
think) the
1960s. Someone else might know whether second copies of BDM registers
were
made at the time, one for the Jewish community and one for local
administrative officials.

Re GUNDELFINGER and Gundelfingen an der Donau #germany

kittymunson@...
 

A correction to my previous post - I seem to have misremembered my source,
on p 118 of "Portraits of our Past" Emily Rose states "Jews had lived in
Gundelfingen >from the end of the thirtennth century and were persecuted
during the time of the Black Death. In the eighteenth century Gundelfingen
did not have an established Jewish community ..."

The cemetery project has a brief listing with no details. The homepage for
this town has no mention of anything Jewish that I with my limited German
can find. Perhaps someone else who speaks german could look?

Re: Death Trains #hungary

Gábor Hirsch <hirsch@...>
 

The list you mentions is often quoted in the Hungarian Holocaust literatur. It is even
contained in the H-SIG database. I saw it first time in Randolph Braham's book "Nepirtas
Politikaja, Holocaust Magyarorszagon.(Politics of Genocide, The Holocaust in Hungary)"
According Braham the list was compiled by the station head of Kosice and the publishing
made Mikulas Gasko possible. First time it was published 1. June 1984 in the canadian
Jewish Menora, in Toronto. Szita Szabolcs in his book "Utak a pokolbol" published the list
to. The transports >from the Ghettos to Auschwitz lasted in avarage 3 days, the first stop
was Kosica were the Germans took over the transports >from the Hungarian gendarmerie and
accompanierd them to Auschwitz, the different transcriptions of the list differs a bit. Our
transport >from Bekescsaba started on June 26, arrived Kosica on the 27 and arrived on 29th

The web site http://www.kosice.sk/history/zidovsky/vlaksmrti.htm provides a
list of 137 transports with dates, towns of origin and numbers of deported
Jews. The web site is in Slovak, Hungarian and English. Apparently trains
were proceeding >from the Hungarian territories to the region of Slovakia via
Kosice. My guess is that they were heading to Auschwitz, although this is
not stated.

I have family members who were in Kosice in 1944. Presumably they would have been on one
of the 5 transports originating in Kosice on the dates below:

From Chaim to Feyvush to Phoebus to Shraga-Uri #general

sallybruc@yahoo.com writes:

<< I read, "No Jew was ever called Phoebus." But my 2nd
gr grandfather was. >>

I entirerly agree with Sally. As I have mentioned many times, Phoebus was
the end expression of a curious transformation of the name Chaim. It went
like this:
- >from the Heb. Chaim (Life/Lives) we have the French translation Vives
- Vives was corruptes to various forms: Fibes, Fivesh, Feivel, Fisch,
Fiebisch, Fiebig, Feyvush
- Feyvusch became Phoebus. That was probably done by Christian clergy who
were registrars of birth at the time.
- Jews were generally unaware that Phoebus had any connection to the Greek
Sungod. They just assumed that Phoebus was the "correct" non-Jewish form
of Feyvush, which had long lost its connection to Chaim
- Many famed and pious rabbis were named Phoebus, most famous among those
with a literary bent being R. Phoebus BACHARACH whom Heinrich HEINE, the
great 19th century Jewish (OK, Sally, don't correct me; he underwent
conversion but remained essentially Jewish) romantic writer referrred to
correctly "known to the Jews as Feyvush."

-- among the more famous Phoebuses recorded in the Enc. Jud. was:
* Phoebus ben Aaron haLevi, prominent Hebrew printer , son of a
cantor and grandson of a rabbi in Amsterdam's Sephardi community
* Eliezer ben URI SHRAGA PHOEBUS, Leader of the Jewish community
of Vienna, descendant of the Halfanus/Chalfan-KALONYMOS rabbinical
family >from Italy (later known as WECHSLER, and his son his son
Rabbi Uri Shraga PHOEBUS (c. 1640-1707) who headed a
yeshivah in Prague and authored many Hebrew commentaries
* Meshullam PHOEBUS Ben Israel Samuel (1547-1617), Polish
rabbi and av bet din (President of the Jewish court) in Cracow,
* Rabbi Moshe ben Eliezer PHOEBUS KOERNER, a descendant of
Rabbi YomTov Lippman Halevi Heller, author of Tosfot YomTov
* Rabbi Samuel b. Uri Shraga Phoebus author of the famed rabbinic
work, Beit Shemuel
* Rabbi Chaim ben Samuel FEIVUSH PHOEBUS of Jerusalem and
Hebron, great grandson of the great Rabbi Yehoshua Falk
* Rabbi Nathan Vidal b. Samuel PHOEBUS of the famed Teomim family
of Vienna
* Rabbi Aaron Uri PHOEBUS HART rabbi of the Ashkenazi community
in London >from 1705

- You may notice above an frequent combination of the names Sharaga or Uri
of both with the name Phoebus. Let me explain: Huh, Phoebus isn't a Jewish
name? It has something to do with the sun. Sun =3D Light. Uri is a
biblical name and Heb for "my light" and, speaking of light, shraga is
Aramaic for candle.

One of my highschool teacher, now a prominent Orthodox rabbi in New York,
was named Fabian in his native France. That Fabian name is almost a dead
giveaway for a Feyvush connection. I phoned his conregation and asked for
his Hebrew name: Shraga Uri, as I would have guessed. I assume that his
father knew that Phoebus was a pagan diety and avoided giving him that
intermediary name.

Dear Michael:
Many thanks for your reply - I should have 'Googled' I found this on

"In the 15th century the Jewish community declined. In 1457 Jewish
noncitizens were expelled; in 1499 all Jews were given five months to leave
the city. These acts were carried out under a policy known as Judenfreiheit
("freedom >from Jewish settlement"), which was vigorously observed for two
centuries. Only in 1712 were Jews even allowed to trade at the cattle
market. In 1786 a single Jew possessing the right of residence was known to
have resided in Ulm."

Which makes sense of what I thought I had read:

Forgive, me. I'm confused. I have a letter dated September 28, 1986 from
Naftali Bar-Giora Bamberger referencing the Cleve Family which is described
as a "well-known Jewish Family." He also states that the Hanau Jewry
information should be available in about a year (1987?) I am unable to
determine if the information I need is in the archives or already published.

Researching the Jewish part of my family is a new adventure for me, I'd
