LitvakSIG Luncheon at the IAJGS Conference in Cleveland #lithuania

Barry Halpern
 

If you're attending the IAJGS Conference in Cleveland, don't miss the
annual LitvakSIG luncheon! You need to purchase a ticket through the
conference website (if you're already registered for the Conference).

Our original guest speaker, Mr. Agurkis >from the Lithuanian Central
State Archives, has had to cancel due to health issues. However, we
are very fortunate to have with us Mr. Elliot Matz, who will be
speaking about an exciting new project in Rumsiskes, Lithuania (about
half-way between Vilnius and Kaunas), a major expansion of the
existing open-air museum there. The current museum was constructed
under Soviet rule, with only minor updates since. Plans for the
expansion involve a more realistic presentation of Jewish history and
involvement in Lithuanian and Eastern European communities. This also
includes archaeological exploration led by Dr. Richard Freund during
July, 2019. Dr. Freund is well-known for work that includes the
excavation work for the Great Synagogue of Vilnius.

Elliot Matz retired in 2017 as Executive Vice President and Chief
Operating Officer of the not-for-profit Brooklyn Navy Yard Development
Corporation, a job-creator for New York City. Prior to that role, he
served in several senior executive roles related to real estate
property management, and has published several articles and book
chapters on corporate real estate strategy. He now serves on the
boards for two non-profits, including the Baltic American Chamber of
Commerce, whose mission is to promote business activity between the
Baltic States and the United States. He is also working on a major
expansion of the Open-Air Museum of Lithuania at Rumsiskes. He earned
a bachelor's degree in architecture, and a masters degree in business
administration. On the personal side, Mr. Matz has been his own
family's genealogist and historian, including the production of an
extensive family tree and Matz history. This has included research in
Lithuania, Canada, England, Israel and Argentina.

Leopold KRAUS and his Daughter Camille in Port Said #poland

Abuwasta Abuwasta
 

Dear Siggers,

I am trying to find out details about Leopold KRAUS who got a Legion

of Honor medal >from Emperor Franz Jozef in 1849. His daughter Camille
married Salomon ARZT in Port Said Egypt who originated from
Jaroslaw, Galicia. Camille died at child birth at the end of 1890s
/beginning of 1900s in Port Said . I have no idea whether Leopold
lived in Austria itself or in Galicia. Many siblings of Salomon ARZT
lived in Port Said where his brother Simon established the famous
Simon Arzt department store.

Thanks in advance

ViewMate #73996 translation death record #hungary

Margarita Lacko
 

I have posted the death record of my great-grandfather Marton FISCHER, born
1844 in Gyongyosoroszi, Hungary.

Looks like the person who reported his death is HANOVER Mor. Does it say if
he is a relative? What is his address? What is Marton's occupation? Was his
father a "grocer"? What did he die of? What does the note say at the
bottom?

I would greatly appreciate a translation of this record.

ViewMate # 73997 translation probably Slovak #hungary

Margarita Lacko
 

Dear H-siggers,

I have posted a telegram sent >from "Praha" to Mar del Plata (Buenos Aires,
Argentina) on 27 October 1945 addressed to my great-uncle Guillermo REICHT
(last name should be LEICHT).

I recognize most of the family names ? they are survivors of work camps and
concentration camps. This branch of my family lived in south Slovakia
(Somorja & Dunaszerdahely then in Hungary) and Gyor & Budapest. Why would
someone have sent the telegram >from Prague?

Unfortunately the telegram is not signed (Sin Firma) but the address
(erzebet krt 19) is where my REISZ relatives lived. I imagine that the wrong
spelling in a few names (rozi, reis, erzebet) might have been to minimize
letters and save some money.

I would greatly appreciate a translation of the two words after ?Telegramm?
(I don?t think these are names). And what do ?z? and ?v? mean?

Looking for HUTTER born in Budapest #hungary

shaul berger
 

3 years ago I found a maternal branch through DNA (FTDNA).All DNA matching was done vs Robert Charles Greenwood whose mother was Charlotte Hutter. My maternal grandfather was Leo Hutter. I know that Charlotte Hutter (born in Budapest 3/4/1900) was Robert's mother. Robert Charles Greenwood is on FamilyTreeDNA as a 1st-2nd cousin match to my mother. The DNA matching is very strong 474 total centimorgans with longest block of 71. This is confirmed by the fact that I am 1st-3rd cousin with DNA matching 320/71. Similar strong DNA matching is found for my brother Joseph and my son Erran. So no doubt that I am related to Robert. The question is how? Robert nor his daughter do not have a clue. Their Ancestry is full of errors and very unreliable. It does not answer my questions at all.Â

Where and how can I get solid data about their "origins' in Hungary? Charlotte was born 3/4/1900. Her brother Israel Irving in 1897 and her sister Shari 10/14/1910. All in Budapest. They all immigrated to USA in early 20th century and appear also in 1930 census. Their family is (maybe) >from Lubycza Królewska, Poland (JRI search came empty). My grandfather Leo Hutter was born in 1879 in Jaroslaw which is not too far away. I am looking for the parenst/grandparents of Charlotte, Irving and Shari and they should be on their birth registration.Â

Any advice how to find the birth certificates. I already searched JRI, Jewishgen, LDS.



Thank You so much in advance

German Reichsvereinigung Card Update: Correction & full description #germany

Lande
 

There was an error in one address in the original posting on Monday.
Here is a fully corrected version:

The next installment of the index of the German Reichsvereinigung
registration cards (so far 26,537 names) is now available at:

stevemorse.org/jewishroof/jewishroof.html. This form of registration was
required 1939-1941 for all Jews resident in Germany, whether or not they
were German citizens. Unfortunately, only a small percentage of the cards
has been located, but those which were found can be examined on the Bad
Arolsen website, https:collections.arolsen-archives.org/en/search.

The alphabetical index to the cards has so far reached up to surnames
beginning with the letter S. Unlike the cards themselves, which can only be
searched by family name, this index can be searched by place of birth or
death, or by maiden name. Many Jews resident in Germany were born in Poland
and other countries, e.g. hundreds in Posen, and a city search may yield
unexpected results. I have supplemented the information available on the
cards, drawing >from other sources.

I would be happy to try to answer any questions regarding the cards and
information on the database, but please start by looking at the cards
themselves.
