Re: Jewish Studies Institute in Ukraine #ukraine

In my most recent foray onto Google, I pulled up new to me
information on this website:
www.judaica.kiev.ua/eng/Projects/Arhivs.htm

Specifically the Archive of Jewish Heritage in Ukraine has
been collecting archives of Jewish heritage >from the Ukraine.
There are 10 areas of collections listed.

Do any of the Ukraine SIG members know anything more about
this collection?

Thanks for any feedback.

Names puzzle #general

Aubrey Jacobus <zen28027@...>
 

I have a problem of ascertaining male forename s
1. He was Aaron ( called Harry ) but his father was thought to be Hyman .
His headstone however read Aharon ben 'Chet Nun Final Nun' and the entry in
register read ( script ) 'Aaron ben Het Nun Hay '
Suggestions and explanations welcomed .
2. Julius - with headstone Yod Vav Aleph Lamed - is it possibly a version
of shortened form of Jaacov /Koppel

I went through Miriam's Weiner's book on Poland and could find nothing

records available >from Oswiecim, especially before 1912. Thanks.

Re: Request for improvement of 1850 online Kurenitz Revision List #belarus

David M. Fox <davefox73@...>
 

JewishGen restricts the Belarus SIG >from updating the All Belarus Database
(ABD) to once every quarter. In an effort to make at least some data
available to our members as soon as possible, our able webmaster, Edward
Rosenbaum, adds the names on new databases to the names index until
the data can be added to the ABD during the next quarterly update.

Once the data does get added to the ABD, the problems encountered by Andi,
will be resolved. Our other option is to not make the limited data
available and just wait for the quarterly update. I thought something fast
was better then waiting three months or more to see the data.

The difficulties are twofold: (1) family units cannot be seen, because
within each surname, the listing is done by first name alphabetical order,
and therefore the husbands of wives, and parents of children, cannot be
known without doing some inconvenient acrobatics (based on using page and
registration numbers), and (2) a more consequential difficulty: for not a
few Alperovitches (of which there are all together 600!), there is
absolutely no information provided (like "age when Revision List made" and
"name of father"), besides a first name; when there are four people bearing
the exact same name - like four of the Zalman Alperovitches on the list -
it's absolutley impossible to identify those four.
I sincerely hope that the second difficulty above-listed will be remedied.
At the very least, for each and every first name on the Kurenitz we need to
see (a) the Relationship to the Head of Household, (b) the page number and
(c) the registration number.

source of surname SCHRECKINGER #general

Rochelle Kaplan <rochelle@...>
 

I seek possible derivations of surname SCHRECKINGER. Have tried German
dictionary, Yiddish sourcebooks, shtetl finder to no avail- also tried
name variants. I know Shrek means fright in German and suffix inger
means more, but this makes little sense to me. My grandfather, Osias
Schreckinger emigrated >from Sambor (now Ukraine) to US in early 1900s.
Would appreciate suggestions. Thanks.

bakers in Minsk-->The Bronx #general

Mpcamitta@...
 

Dear friends,
Do any of you have relations who were bakers either in Minsk or in the Bronx? My great grandfather Bezalel BASSEIN, a cantor, worked in the family bakery in both places. I suspect that the family surname was not BASSEIN, possibly it was his mother's family, although this is purely speculation.
Please write with information.
Thank you in advance.

György Schwarcz #hungary

Giselle Bodziony
 

Dear Genners,


I'm looking for György (Georg, called Gyuri) Schwarcz, born in Zsujta,
Hungary. He could be 80-90 years old today. His father, Gyula Schwarcz, and
his brother, Istvan Schwarcz, were killed by the nazis. György and his
mother survived the Holocaust and lived in Zsujta and Budapest after WW2. In
the beginning of the 1950ies (before 1956) they escaped >from the Communist
regime in Hungary to Vienna. I was told that afterwards they went on to New
York. György Schwarcz married and had children.
My grandfather, Dr. Ernö Schwarcz (who was killed in Budapest in December
1944), and Gyula Schwarcz (György Schwarcz' father) were siblings. In
connection with György Schwarcz I heard the names Satori and Szegö.

I ask you to help me to find György Schwarcz and his family.


With best wishes,

Giselle Bodziony

Szepes 1869 Supplement #hungary

Marelynn Zipser <ezipser@...>
 

At long-last I was able to access 2 of the 3 remaining films for 1869
Szepes census. There were 94 Jews in 8 shtetls. Here are main surnames
by shtetl.
Sub-Lechnicz: Fabian, Schloszman, Littman
Markus-Csepanalu: Bachner, Blumenfeld, Brenwasser, Weiser, Samet,
Fridman
Denesfalva: Lorber
Domanyocz: Fridman, Baumohl, Baumgarten
Lengvart: Langer
Dubrava: Schvarcz
Zavadka: Grunberger
Zsakarocz: Korach

This material will be submitted to the AHD to add to the Szepes file.
In the meantime, I am willing to send all or part of the 94 name file
upon request.

* Slovak Holocaust victims suffer legal setback #hungary

Tom Venetianer <tom.vene@...>
 

Dear all,

The article below, >from the Slovak Spectator, could be of interest to Slovakian Holocaust survivors
http://www.slovakspectator.sk/clanok-388.html

In short, a suit brought by representatives of Slovak Jewish Holocaust survivors against the German government was thrown out by a Berlin district court, March 28, 2004, because the organization did not have *the right to represent* Slovak Holocaust victims.

The Central Union of Jewish Religious Communities in Slovakia (UZZNO) will appeal.

The best
Tom
