Subject: [h-sig] CSARI or CARY


Dear All,

Does anyone know where I can find birth records for Csari
(in Hungarian), Cary (in Slovak, with a hook above the
"C"),
which is in Nitra county, Slovakia? I'm looking in
particular
for Simon KOHN, a beef merchant who was born there in the
1850s
or 1860s and then moved to Budapest, where he married
(Iza)bella LOEWY. Bella gave birth to a daughter,
Szerena Kohn, in 1891.

Thanks,

Michael Miller
Budapest, Hungary

Also looking for: MANOVILL (sometimes MANOWILL)

Moderator: Have you checked the All Hungary Database

you could try looking up nyitra in the mormon library catalogue: http://www.familysearch.org/ ; sometimes smaller, nearby communities were recorded in the nearest larger town, and the mormons do have jewish records for nyitra.


....... tom klein, toronto

ps. who were your MANOVILL relatives?

Re: Gymnasium in Kosice #hungary

tom klein <h-sig@...>
 

"gymnasium" would just mean high school - it could be either jewish or not.

i don't know specifically which schools existed in kosice at the time, but you might give us a clue as to the time period when your grandmother might have been school-aged. (the 1929 magyar zsido lexikon has a one-column article on the kassa community, which had about 1,000 member families and 5,000 souls, but it only refers to there being an elementary school and a talmud torah.)

Vilna County 4th okrug birth records #lithuania

Joel Ratner
 

Translations of the Vilna County 4th okrug birth records were received
today. Donors to the Vilna County VRT project will receive the full
translations this weekend.

There are several interesting things regarding this data. The variety of
towns mentioned in these records is very large - so large in fact, that it
is appropriate to release certain information to a large audience at this
time. I will create a spreadsheet which will index the surnames and the
towns mentioned in the records. I will create a YahooGroup that allows
public access, so any researcher can easily download the file. Members of
JewishVilna will have access to the index via our site, so no additional
effort will be required. I will announce the availability of the file once I
have uploaded it.

description of each house along the streets of the Old Town, including
pertinent historical facts. Descriptions vary >from a few lines to several
pages. The book was written in 1939, just prior to the start of WWII.

Researchers who have roots in Vilna and who know the street address their

pertinent information. Translation >from the Yiddish original is left up to

Dear Andrew,

It's very hard to find material on the Jewish communities in Kent
in general. First of all, and I'm sure you know that, BMD goes back
only to 1837. Anything earlier than that is a serious detective work.
In theory, the records of the Jewish community of Canterbury are kept
in the Canterbury Cathedral archives
(http://www.canterbury-cathedral.org/history/archives.htm),
though I'm not sure that anything survived, but I would suggest you
double check that.
The only collection of the Jewish records in Kent that I know of is
in Medway Archives and Local Studies Centre (http://cityark.medway.gov.uk).
They also hold quite a nice collection of books on Jewish history in the
area, and the Chatham Memorial Synagogue is the only one that has been
active since 1760s. I do know that there were connections between the
communities, and quite a few Jewish families moved to Rochester and
Chatham >from Canterbury. You can send them an email, explaining the
problem, and I know that you're entitled for a 20 minutes free research.
I do recommend the staff there, who are very helpful and friendly.

Hope this helps.
