Piotrkowski's from Lask and Pabiance #general

ian leiba <leiba@...>
 

Can anyone assist with information about the Rabbinical Piotrkowski's >from
Pabiance and Lask, other than what is on shtetl links and jewishgen?
An article held by family about the Rabbinical Piotrkowski's with an added
typed last line (unknown source of either) mentioned all Piotrkowski's >from
Lask are descended >from the above Rabbinical line.

All searches to prove this and link all the Lask Piotrkowski families, have
not been fruitful, so any info or ideas would be greatly appreciated.
Other general info about the Piotrkowski's and also responses >from
descendants, would be most welcome.

Many thanks,
Freda Leiba

Where is Giszing? #hungary

Jake Jacobs
 

A terrific genealogist we're working with has located some records for my 3d g'grandfather, whom we had
understood was >from Mad. The records (death record, children's birth records) actually reflect that he was born
in Giszing, though he lived much of his adult life in Mad. All the records located have this same place name
for birth, same spelling. Question is: Where is this? 

According to our genealogist, this place is not known in the Hungarian Kingdom, but perhaps is a
German/Yiddish name of the place. He suggested Giessing, now Sopronkovesd, near the Austrian border; or
Giszing )(Menetujvar, now Gussin Austria) -- but that's awfully far away!

Any other ideas would be appreciated. Thanks, all.

more information about exhumation? #hungary

tom
 

i came across an unusual looking entry, on a website that contains
burials information >from hungary (my apologies for the awkward
formatting):

Name of the deceased | Born - Died | Location of cemetery | Plot - Row - Grave
Klein Simonne' exh. | 1946 - 1947 | Kozma utca, Budapest | 40 - 33 - 23

the notation "exh.", exhumed, is unusual, and so is the date of
birth, since it is unlikely that a married woman would be only one
year old. (it's more likely intended to be the date of the first
burial, maybe.)

would anyone know how or where to obtain more information about this
burial, if there is any more information available?
