Help with Hungarian Death Record #hungary

Sam Schleman <Samara99@...>
 

Hello all.

I need some help figuring out a death record >from the town of Gavavencsello
from 1876. The column headings are in German.
The first column is the first and last name of the deceased ("des
Berstorbenen"). The next column is for the month-day and year of the death.
The next column is the place of birth ("Geburts=Ort") and the next column is
the occupation of the deceased (Stand oder Beschaeftigung").

If I have any German translations wrong, please correct.

Across the columns for birthplace and occupation is written a person's name.

Does anyone have any idea whether this would be the father or a witness or a
brother?

The entire page of 25 names is in the identical format.

On the page are two names. One is the name of my Grandfather, but he didn't
die until 1944 and that was in the US. The other is an unfamiliar family
member. The person whose name spans the two columns is my Great-grandfather.

I am speculating that he was the brother or witness to the deaths of his two
brothers and that my Grandfather was subsequently named after the deceased
brother.

Appreciate any help.

Re: The name "Gizel" #hungary

Sam Schleman <Samara99@...>
 

Hello all.

I was the original poster of the question about "Gizel" being equivilent to
"Katie" in the US. I want to thank all that replied and offered their
expereince.

I had posted the question because of my confusion when looking at the BMD
records for a town in Hungary in which I found a "Gizel" in the birth
records with a birth date that corresponded to someone known here as Kate,
but then found a Gisella in the death records.

Further research indicates that they were separate people. The "Gizel" was
in fact known as "Kate" in the US. Her gravestone indicates her name as
Kate and her Hebrew name as "Gitel".

Thanks again to all who replied.

The Jewish Center of University Heights was a block away,
on Nelson Avenue and 175th Street.
Perhaps that's the one your uncle attended.

Arrival Card data base
http://www.jewishgen.org/databases/USA/BostonHIAS.htm is the ability
to look at the first names of arriving immigrants, almost all
came with their native given names. I searched all the
first names and came up with no one named Kremie, but 12 with the
name Kreine or a variation thereof: Krejna, Kroine, Kryna,
Kreina, Kraina, and three named Kreindel, Krendla, Krandla.

You can try these names yourself by selecting the type of search =

Dear Cousins,

My cousin Hirsch GRIMOWITZ arrived at Ellis Island on 3 Oct 1907. On
page 64, at the right end of line 24, he gives his mother's name as
the person left behind. The writing is quite legible. The given name
looks to be "Kremie." The first "e" is written like an "i" but is
un-dotted. The "i" near the end is dotted.

Does the name sound familiar to anyone? Or can anyone read the name
differently.

(It's possible that this woman's given name will bring together two
rather large trees I have of the Mereminsky family of Slonim.)
