Re: Beatrice as a Jewish name #general

Rick Barry <rikbarry@...>
 

Beatrice is a common name for Jewish women. I had an aunt "Beattie" and I've
known several other Beatties and Beatrices. All Jewish, all born in earlier
generations.

The only oddity was that in census reports, the Beatrice's sometimes were
referred to as "Betsy", a shortening you never hear nowadays. My
grandfather always called her "Beatie", and I never heard the Betsy used
by my mother.

Re: Lodz PSA MATCHING FUNDS CHALLENGE! #poland

Seflaum@...
 

I included some incorrect information in my last posting. I made the false
claim that, when fully funded, Lodz will become the city with more available
indices than any other city in the JRI-Poland database (with 66,000 indices).
I have been informed that, in fact, Krakow has posted over 94,000 indices.
It's no so bad to be in 2nd place! I apologize for any resulting confusion.

NY Census Finding Aids - Salt Lake City Conference #general

Stephanie Lewis <stefwlewis@...>
 

Dear JewishGenners,

Back in October, 1999, Allan Jordan was kind enough to tip us off
regarding finding aids at the NYPL that would provide the AD/ED for the
1905, 1915 and 1925 NY state census. Specifically, he advised that there
was a microfilm at the NYPL that would like up the address and the ED/AD.
He seemed to refer to it as a single microfilm reel(???) ZI-539. Is there
any possibility that:(
(a)there is a similar finding aid in Salt Lake City?
(b) a copy of the one ? at the NYPL could be made and made available at
the Salt Lake City Conference?
(c) some other arrangements could be made to make that information
available for this summer's conference?

Allan also made reference to some black ring binders at the NYPL that
would match up the AD/ED for the state census for the appropriate reel
numbers. Again, any possibility that this information could be made
available at the conference in some way, shape or form?

I will be doing a lot of NY research in Salt Lake, and just can't get back
to NY! Any way that this could be accomplished??

I'd appreciate any help anyone can provide!
Thanks in advance!

1942 Budapest #hungary

Judy and Gary Floam <gfloam@...>
 

Dear H-Sig members,
I heard a fascinating talk about a book which might be of interest to
some of you. It is called "A Letter >from My Father", by Ariella Blum Samson,
published in Toronto in 1993. She was born in Budapest in 1942. At the
time, her father was in Russia, in the conscripted labor battalions. He
wrote a letter to his wife and children with his wishes and instructions if
he should not return >from the war. As it happened, he died at the front,
but the letter disappeared, and finally turned up in 1992 and was sent to
the daughter - fifty years later - who was married and living in Canada. I
have not yet read the book, but it sounds as though it might give some
insights into Jewish life in Budapest during the war. Some of you may even
be related to the Blum family!

Mauthausen website #hungary

Robert & Sarah Klein <hamoreh@...>
 

http://www.mauthausen-memorial.gv.at/

They are working on making a searchable database of all prisoners, both
survivors and victims, many of whom were Hungarian. As a reminder, Yad
Vashem has its own list of Hungarian victims of Mauthausen which it compiled
years ago, and which can be found in the reading room of the archives
(unless it has been transferred to the regular library in the new
building--and perhaps to the electronic database being developed??).

Death certidicate from Embassy of Hungary/Wash.DC #hungary

Lebn@...
 

Dear Hi-Siggers,
Success at last and only in 3 months wait time. Here's the brief story.
In January, 2000 I wrote a letter in Hungarian to the V District Office in
Budapest (Keruleti Polgarmesteri Hivatal) giving the name of the deceased
ancestor, the date of death, and the street address at the time of death. I
obtained this info >from the Kozma cemetery where I knew the ancestor was
buried. I sent no money with the requesting letter for the death certificate.
I just received a letter >from the Embassy of Hungary that they have the cert.
and will send it to me for $15, but because I live in the Wash. DC area I
went to the Embassy to get it.

I have used other options in the past for other ancestors, such as completing
a request form for a B,M,D certificate and sending it to the Embassy of
Hungary with the requested $25. So far, this option has been fruitless, I am
waiting now over 6 months and have nothing yet for the $25.

The moral of this story is: write directly to the appropriate District Office
in Budapest for B,M,D certificates but you must have the address at time of
death. They will contact the Hungarian Embassy nearest to you and send it
that way.

BTW, I have listed all 22 Budapest District Offices with addresses at least
two times on this digest.

Good luck with your searching

Re: War archives #hungary

Could you post the address for the Hungarian War archives? Perhaps
others can write and maybe find the magic words to open up the
information. The Austrian military archives pointed me to the Hungarian
archives saying that most data was maintained regionally (although they
had information about my Budapest relative who served in WW1).

Thanks,
Debbi
