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?

Help with translation of Yiddish postcard from Orgeyev to New York #bessarabia

Patricia Klindienst <epk13@...>
 

First I would like to thank the many people who responded so thoughtfully to my previous request
for help with translation of a postcard bearing a message half in Yiddish and half in Romanian.

Now I ask for help with a second card Tcharna Tzarevkan of Orgeyev wrote to her son, David Cohen,
in America. This message is entirely in Yiddish.

http://www.jewishgen.org/viewmate/viewmateview.asp?key=VM26228

Between the two postcards, we have noticed three distinct styles of writing, suggesting that Tcharna
did not write her own cards (she appears to allude to this in the first card), but is telling someone what
to write. I would like a full translation, with any notes you might want to add (vocabulary, tone,
idiomatic expressions, etc.).

Thank you,

Blankenberghe, Belgium #france

Debbie Lifshitz
 

Hi All!

Blankenberghe was a popular resort destination at the turn of the 20th
century (and perhaps even later). My grandmother wrote in her memoires
that her family stayed at a Jewish hotel there (presumably kosher as
well) several times between 1905 and 1913, but did not give any
further information.
I am seeking specific information of such an establishment, and
possibly a photo.
Thank you and Happy Purim

Seeking Dutch Translator #general

Cooper Campbell Family <coopbell@...>
 

Hello all,

I have secured a file related to a 200 year old legacy that paid to my
family a sum (so modest by 1981, the family stopped seeking it). It is a
seeming wealth of family data (if you excuse the pun) as I can read the
names, but not much else. I need someone who can, for a fair fee, translate
about 190 pages stretching over the time frame 1790-1910. The later portion
is typed and should be fairly easy to read, the older parts are, of course,
hand written and will presumably use an older form of Dutch.

Can anyone suggest someone able to do this without me having sell a kidney
or a child?

Thx

Steve Cooper

MODERATOR NOTE: Please respond directly to Steve.
