Salt Lake City 2007 International Conference on Jewish Genealogy #sephardic

Mathilde Tagger <tagger@...>
 

Dear all,

I would like to inform all those who intend to participate in the Salt Lake
Conference, that unfortunately I will not be able to give the two scheduled
lectures for reasons of health.

One lecture was on: Military Genealogy: The case of the Algerian Jews Who
Served in the French Army.

The second lecture was on: Sephardic Genealogical Sources in Israel- New
Findings.

Very sorry!

Let's hope that the next Conference to be held in 2008 in Chicago will have
a rich Sephardic program as was that of the 2006 New York Conference or
better, as was that of the 2004 Jerusalem Conference! Things depend on
ourselves only!

Shalom,

Re: MARK MARKS #unitedkingdom

Annie,

Do you *know* that this particular Mark MARKS is the one you are looking
for? There were several in London at that time, of about the same age, and
some were definitely Jewish. One of them (not this one) was my 3 x
gt-grandfather. However I do have some information about some of the others
if you need it. It would be useful to know what other information you have
about the Mark MARKS you are looking for.

Not really a pedantic point but the Jewish Brigade was a formation of the
Second World War, formed in 1944 and took part in the Italian campaign. The
First World World Jewish units of the Royal Fusiliers were designated 'Judaeans'
once the war was over.

LEBURG/LEBUNG surname in Danzig #danzig #gdansk #germany #poland

A & B Algaze <Algaze@...>
 

My gggrandfather, Israel SALOMON, took the surname LEBUNG (later changed to
LEBURG) and is listed on the 1814 name change list >from the town of Danzig.
The surname is a very rare name--the only other families I have found with
this surname are >from Sweden and they are not Jewish.

My question: could my gggrandfather have learned of this surname in the
course of doing business with Swedish merchants? Was there commerce between
the Scandinavian countries and Europe through the port of Danzig?

Any response would be GREATLY appreciated.

This is a reply to an email John wrote some days ago:

Dear John

Thank you very much for your touching lines - and that you had time and strenght to write them. Intuitively I believe that my grandfather might have escaped the same way out of the train as you did - but maybe it's only a straw I grasp at because I can't possibly imagine any other way my grandfather could have got to Budapest.
As I had no reliable documents and traces I've been investigating for more than 7 years (actually 32 years, 7 years more intensely) after my grandfather's and his family's faith.
My grandfather was born in Zsujta, but in 1926 he moved to Miskolc, where he opened his lawyer's office. As he and his son (Endre) arrived to Budapest, they were used as labor servicemen. Several documents point out that my grandfather tried to make himself 10 years younger - maybe hoping to survive that way. A Genner >from this lyrislist once described the circumstances under which my grandfather and uncle died - this too is based on memories, nevertheless they're very important information to me.

Dear John, I have an inmost request to you: please tell the youth about your life and your experiences so that they know the truth, how it really was - so it never be forgot. I ask you to talk also in the name of those who can't talk anymore.

I thank you very much.

With all the best wishes,

On the Lookout for Palko and Amara DENSKY from Slovakia #hungary

Dear Genners,

I'm looking for Palo (Palko) and Amara Densky, children of Norbert
DENSKY aka DEUTELBAUM >from Slovakia. These two were born after WWII, and
thus should be around the age of 60-65 today. They have a first cousin
waiting to become acquainted with them. Any info on their current
whereabouts would be highly appreciated.

Best Regards,
Shaul Sharoni,

Re: Name Change from ZWIEBACK to ?? #hungary

tom klein <h-sig@...>
 

unfortunately, i don't think there are any rules for name changes (my own KLEIN family has a KUTI and a KOSZEGI), but entire books of name changes were published, and there is at least one online resource for browsing these changes, at <http://kt.lib.pte.hu/cgi-bin/kt.cgi?konyvtar/kt04112203/0_0_2_pg_250.html>, which was posted on h-sig about 2 years ago, and discussed in a few messages.

unfortunately, these are just images of the book's pages, and are arranged in order of NEW name (without a searchable index or cross-reference by old name), but you might get some ideas by flipping through the pages. (the specific link takes you to the beginning of the "z" section, but there are many other possibilities, including "translations" of the meaning of "zwieback" or "biscuit", or puns, etc.) for example, at the beginning of the "z" entries, there is: "Za'dor (Zwibel) Fe'lix A'ron keresk.-sege'd Bpest. BM. 31177-89".

My father's brother Viktor ZWIEBACK, born 1881 near Nagykanizsa, Zala, was

was 22 at the time). Despite my father keeping in touch with his other 2
brothers and his aunts, uncles, and cousins, my father lost contact with
Viktor after that. I have searched many sources and no trace of Viktor.

I have several cousins born KOHN in Nagykanizsa who changed their names
early on to KIRALY and KERTESZ. My thought was that maybe Viktor changed
his ZWIEBACK name to some non-jewish hungarian equivalent.

Micah:

Have you been here? http://www.jewishgen.org/ShtetlSeeker/LocTown.asp
I get 85 Soundex matches for 'Breslavik'--in 13 countries. Most of those can be
ruled out, but what was called "Poland" in 1913 now includes parts of several other
countries, notably Ukraine and Belarus.

Now, in this family history, did she mention what part of Poland this was? Was
this Russian Poland or Galicia (Austrian)? Did she mention a nearby city? A river?
What language(s) did people speak there?
