Lord Edmil(?) #hungary

Sam Vass <SVass@...>
 

The 1828 Trencsen census in Benyov & Urbanov (synagogue in Vag
Bestercze) 1828 Lajo(s) Vajder has the following note:

"Arendator Edmilli dominalis" which translates as Tenant of Lord
Edmil (?)

An Italian gentleman has kindly offered the translation shown. My
question is whether anyone knows if there was a Lord Edmil in the
village shown.

Dear Ivan Greenhut

Yes I can. The 1862-1895 records are kept in Ungvar (Uzhhorod, Ukraine).

Is very very difficult to have access to any records there.

Dr. Erno Schwarcz, Miskolc #hungary

Giselle Bodziony
 

Dear Genners

I read a couple of days ago that the topic was set to the deportataion of Jews >from Miskolc.
Therefore I would kindly ask if there is somebody who survived the deportation of June 12, 1944 - or knows anything about it or could tell me something about the following persons: Dr. Ernö Schwarcz, Miskolc, lawyer, 59 years of age; his son, Endre Schwarcz, 17 years old at that time. Both were deported that day - and under not know circumstances they managed to take refuge to Budapest. Both were killed in Budapest in December 1944. Dr. Schwarcz' wife, Erzsebet Schwarcz, was also deported in June 12, 1944 and finally transported to Lichtenau. She died there in 1945. Is there anybody who might tell me something about her?
Dr. Ernö Schwarz was my grandfather.

Thank you very much for your help.

Researching: NOWAK #austria-czech

robert fraser <robertandginafraser@...>
 

Dear Friends -

This is another attempt (last posted in 2005 but unsuccessful) to ferret out
some information on my great-great-grandfather's siblings.

My gggf David NOWAK was born somewhere in Moravia, died in 1879 and is
buried in Uhersky Brod in Czech Republic. He had a son Moritz, who was born
in or near Uhersky Hradiste in 1835 and died in Vienna in 1916.

Moritz married Amalie WOLF in Lostice and had four children:
Oskar (my grandfather), Ernestine, who died young, Ida, who was probably
murdered in Steinhof mental hospital by the nazis, and Hugo, who apparently
became an actor and nothing more is known to me.

So much I know, but David had two other sons, Jakob and Heinrich, about whom
I know virtually nothing except for some family remembrances.

Jakob married Marie ? and had children: Amalie, who married a man surnamed
FLESCH, and Ernestine, who I know nothing about. There was also another son
or daughter.

Heinrich married, although I don't know his wife's name, and had a son
Arthur. Arthur married Lotte KOHN.

That's all I know. All these names are listed/registered in the usual
places.
Can anyone throw any light on the missing NOWAKS?

Shalom

Question about given name Ela Boruch #poland

Elaine Farran
 

I recently reviewed the newest data posted by the Lodz
Area Research Group (LARG)searching for information
about my CHENCHINSZKI and SZAMPANIER famiies from
Lodz. Unfortunately, I could not connect the
information I have with the documents.

One name,however, ELA BORUCH CHENCINSKI, jumped off
the page because the only person I've known with that
given name was my great-uncle, ELA BORUCH
SZAMPANIER/CHAMPANIER.

The reference I found is as follows:
D CHENCINSKI Ela Boruch

When I went online, I discovered this person died in
1888 and child bearing the same name was born in 1895.
This suggested a relationship between the Chencinski
and Szampanier families.

I'm not even sure what my questions are because this
is so complex. I think I would like to know if anyone
knows the meaning of the name Ela Boruch, and if
anyone has a relative of that name, who might
ultimately be related to these families.

Do you have any suggestions about what I should
research next?

Thanks for your advice
