Searching: Louis KYEZOR, Frankfurt, b. 1790s #general

Harold Pollins <pollins@...>
 

I am trying to establish the family tree of Louis KYEZOR. He was born In
Frankfurt some time in the 1790s - ages
attributed to him in the various Censuses and elsewhere place his birth
year between 1793 and 1797. He came to England early in the 19th century.
He spent most of his life in London and Middlesex but the first reference
to him is in 1830 when he was in Doncaster, Yorkshire and the family were
in London >from the late 1830s. He was a watchmaker.

He had several children - Jessie (or Jessy or Jessey), Louis, George,
Henry, Matilda. It is possible his father was John KYEZOR who was aged 90
at the 1841 Census. His wife was Sophia Flora KYEZOR who died of apoplexy
in 1839 in London aged 36.

Louis KYEZOR senior eventually lived at Witton, now in Twickenham, where he
was active and a local benefactor. He came to prominence in 1869 when he
was murdered. He was buried at Bancroft Road cemetery (in the same road as
the Tower Hamlets Local History Library). Unfortunately the cemetery was
bombed during the war so it is not possible to view the headstone. Moreover
the records of the cemetery were also lost in the bombing of the Western
Synagogue.

His son Louis, also a watchmaker, had 10 children, most of whom I have
been unable to trace except for George (1857-1924). I am told that Louis
senior's son Henry lived in Hounslow.

His son Louis died in 1887 aged 54; one of his daughters became Mrs Henry
HEILBRON. This was probably Matilda, who inherited most of his estate. A
grand-daughter was a gifted child musician, Mademoiselle Sophia Flora
HEILBRON.

I should very much like to know more about the family. I have no knowledge
of any of them after George's death in 1924. It is possible that the name
was changed by some of them at some point.

Any information would be gratefully received.

Spring board book of the East End of London #general

Corinne Silver <corinnesilver@...>
 

Someone( and I have miss-laid the letter) kindly wrote to me about
Silversteins salt beef bar. They said that they had seen picture of it
in a copy of the Spring board book of the East End of London.
I have been unable to obtain the copy of the book that I had bought my
grandmother, as some (un- history minded) member of the family gave it
away to a charity shop when Grandma went into the care home! (not my
favorite family member right now!) Is there a Genner out there with a
copy of the book so they can send me the
ISBN number and date of publication. As it is a local history
interest book, and as Manchester is not in the same locality as the
East end of London I am having trouble locating a copy.
Please reply privately to my business mail address.
By the way I appoligise for not responding to much mail over the next
10 days as I am off to hospital for an operation on my neck.
thank you for your help in advance

Emancipation #hungary

Magda Lapedus <Magdil@...>
 

To Tom Venetianer Jan 8.
I read a long chapter in the Encyclopedia Judaica, Volume He-Ir page
1090 about the emancipation of the Hungarian Jews between 1867-1914.
Eleanor Bien had asked about the reference of the Act of Emancipation
regarding requirement to adopt surnames. There was no mention about surname
adoption in the above chapter.

I believe that this happened during the reign of Joseph II. Emperor of Austria-Hungary.
He was the son of Maria Theresa, Empress of Austria. Joseph II. introduced
many reforms during his reign. He ordered the Jewish population to adopt
surnames. This was the main reason why Jews adopted German names.
Goldberg, Rosenberg, Gruenbaum etc.

Federation of Jewrish Communities (MAZSIHISZ), the Museum of Hungarian
Jewry was given a list of UJPEST martyrs, which contain ca. 20 000 names.

I am looking for Anna Tolnai, a painter, the sister of my paternal

Both went to some concetration camp and died there. Thanks for any
information. Shalom, Sarah Achene

Proposal for Rumanian restitution #hungary

Ujlaki Gyorgy <ujlaki.gyorgy@...>
 

According to the January 15, 1999 issue of -Uj Elet-, official organ of Hungarian
Federation of Jewrish Communities (MAZSIHISZ), the Rumanian Prime Minister
submitted a draft law for compensation or restitution to be given for those, whose
property was confiscated between 1945-1989 in Rumania, incl. Transylvania.

Though this is not related to genealogy, might be of interest to some of us.

I am searching for ODON WURM, who was born in Hogyesz, Tolna county in

that his descendants came to Hungary a few years ago and they were searching
for relatives here. Unfortunately, we missed each other.

Any help or hint will be appreciated!
