A search for cousins #hungary

robert b hanscom <rodihan@...>
 

My grandmother, Charlotte TAUBER was b. in Drietoma, Trencin megye,
Hungary (now Slovakia) in 1889 and emigrated with her parents [Simon and
Adella (TESCHNER) TAUBER] to New York City in 1897. In the process of
tracing her ancestry over the last two years, I've discovered that she
had at least 44 first cousins. A third of these cousins also came to the
U.S. and I've made contact with their descendants. But I'm now
interested in tracking down the fates of the cousins who remained in
Europe.

Does anyone have any knowledge of the following people/families?

Children of my grandmother's uncle, Leopold TESCHNER (1843-1905):
* Adele (TESCHNER) DIAMONT, b. Vag Besztercze, Trencin megye [now
Povazska Bystrica, Slovakia], 4 Feb. 1865. She m. Salomon DIAMONT on 26
Aug. 1888 and had one dau., Margit, b. 14 Feb. 1889. No further
information.
* Emilie TESCHNER, b. Vag Besztercze, 26 April 1870. She is said to have
married, but I have no information on the identity of her husband.
* Kalman TESCHNER, b. Vag Besztercze, 14 May 1872.
* Irma (TESCHNER) BAUMOHL, b. Vag Besztercze, 16 October 1874. She m.
Rudolf BAUMOHL on 17 Jan. 1897. I've discovered a list which indicates
that two of her sons, Artur and Marcel BAUMOHL, perished in a
concentration camp. Would like to learn more about this family...

Children of my grandmother's aunt, Rosa (TESCHNER) BRATTMAN (1845-1891):
* Regi BRATTMAN, b. Vag Besztercze, 18 October 1867, and her sister, Ida
BRATTMAN, b. 26 October 1876. Both are said to have married, but I don't
know the identities of their husbands. One of them may have married an
ELENCZWEIG.
* Julius BRATTMAN, b. Vag Besztercze, 5 Aug. 1872, d. in Zilinia, 11 Oct.
1929. I have made contact with descendants of his who live in Chicago
and Israel, but am interested in discovering the fates of his two eldest
sons, Arthur BRATTMAN, b. 1898, and Rezso Sandor [Alexander] BRATTMAN, b.
1899.
* Wilhelm BRATTMAN, b. Vag Besztercze, 11 Dec. 1880, d. in Budapest, 28
Oct. 1915. I believe he may have been married and perhaps had children.


Children of my grandmother's aunt, Johanna (TAUBER) GLASEL (1835-1866):
* Rosalia /"Sali" (GLASEL) BERGER, b. Varin, Trencin megye [now
Slovakia], 1864. She m. Jacob Herman BERGER, b. c1857, in Trencin, 26
February 1884. No further information.
* Caecilie (GLASEL) SINGER, b. Varin, 1866, d. in Budapest between 1945
and 1950. She m. in Trencin, 31 Mar. 1891, David SINGER >from Myava. He
d. in a concentration camp; she survived. I'm in contact with
descendants of Caecilie's son, Ludwig (1904-1934), but am interested in
tracking descendants of her daughter, Jeanette /"Jenny" (SINGER) SPITZER
(1896-1975) of Budapest. Jenny had two sons, Robert and Gabriel, both of
whom vanished post-World War II.


Children of my grandmother's aunt, Katharina (TAUBER) ZERKOWITZ
[Czerkowicz] (1854-1926) of Budapest:
* Frieda ZERKOWITZ, b. Budapest, 7 March 1885, living in Budapest, 1950;
her sister, Aranka ZERKOWITZ, b. Budapest, 9 August 1891; and another
sister, Jozefa ZERKOWITZ, b. Budapest, 25 Nov. 1894, d. Budapest, 12
August 1959. A fourth sister, Roza ZERKOWITZ, b. Budapest, 7 Feb. 1888,
perished at Auschwitz, 1944.
* Dr. Leopold ZERKOWITZ, brother of the four sisters, b. Budapest, 14
December 1889, possibly died at Auschwitz as well. He is said to have
had one daughter who was a ballet dancer in Budapest.

Children of my grandmother's aunt, Helena /Ilona (TAUBER) DEUTSCH (b.
1860) of Budapest:
* Hugo DEUTSCH, b. Budapest, 20 February 1887. No further information.
* Ella DEUTSCH. She is said to have moved to Roumania.... may have died
in a concentration camp.

I am also interested in tracking children and descendants of an another
aunt, Amalia TAUBER, b. 2 April 1852, m. Moritz LOWY (b. Vel'ke Uherce,
1849) in Trencin, 15 Feb. 1876.

If anyone has information on any of the families listed above, I would be
most eager to hear >from you.

Burial Registry - Copenhagen, Denmark #yizkorbooks

Harriet Brown <hnbrown@...>
 

This just in, everyone. Enjoy!

Denmark SIG is happy to announce a NEW EXCITING PROJECT:

Burials on Jewish cemeteries in Copenhagen, Denmark
1694 - 1915
for
JewishGen's Online Worldwide Burial Registry

--------------------------------------------------------

Elias Levin, a 91-year-old Dane, has given permission to the
Denmark SIG to digitize his four first books for the OWBR.

The four books cover the period 1694 - 1915. The persons
buried come >from most of Europe - some of the first
families were Sephardim - particularly in the first two
centuries, later (>from 1880) >from Eastern Europe.

The first Jews in Denmark had family ties with Jews in
other countries in Europe, and some settled in Denmark for
a while and then went back to where they came >from -- or
somewhere else.

from the mid-17th century and until the mid-19th century
Schlewsig-Holstein belonged to the Danish King (i.e. Denmark).

So even though you do not know of Danish ancestors, you might
find information pertaining to your families in the burial
registry.

Elias Levin, has since his return >from Theresienstadt
worked on photographing, transliterating, indexing and
publishing the tombstones on the Jewish cemeteries in
Copenhagen, Denmark.

This has till now resulted in five books:
1. "Den gamle j=F8diske begravelsesplads i M=F8llegade
1694-1994=94. (Vol. I & II). Copenhagen, 1994.
(Registry of burials on the old cemetery the
so-called Northern or Moellegade Cemetery).
2. =93J=F8diske Gravstene 1886-1915 p=E5 Mosaisk Vestre
Begravelsesplads=94 (Jewish tombstones 1886-1915
on Mosaisk Vestre Cemetery, Copenhagen, Denmark).
Copenhagen, 1986. Registry of all burials from
1886-1900 (Vol. I) and 1900-1915 (Vol. II) on
new cemetery (Mosaisk Vestre Cemetery)
3. "J=F8diske Gravstene 1991-1999 p=E5 Mosaisk Vestre
begravelsesplads=94 (Jewish tombstones 1991-1999 on
Mosaisk Vestre Cemetery, Copenhagen, Denmark).
Copenhagen, 2000. Registry of all burials from
1991-1998.


It is a work in progress as he is still working on the
project that he has taken upon himself. He is preparing
a new book on burials 1999 and 2000, and at the same time
he is trying to fill out the gap between 1915-1991. There
are published listings of the burials but not with photos
of the tombstones.

He is planning on publishing the listings with photos and
other genealogical information >from the vital records.

You can read more about the cemeteries in Copenhagen (and
see some photos) as well as listings of surnames of those
buried there on Denmark SIGs website

http://www.jewishgen.org/denmark

or go directly to the webpage for cemeteries in Copenhagen:
http://www.jewishgen.org/denmark/3a_copenhagen.htm

We need your help, please support this project by
sending some money.

You can go to:

or you can send a check payable to JewishGen
- but remember to write that it is for the
"Denmark SIG Burial Registry"

A message for the whole group #general

David Frey <dfrey@...>
 

Dear Jewish Genners

As we approach the Days of Awe, it ought to be possible for us to pause
for a moment >from the busy pace that we all lead on an every day basis.
There is so little time for contemplation or reflection.

Yet we devote much of that time to the vocation of trying, in a very real
sense, to reconstruct the history of our people, to preserve it to show
that Hitler did not succeed, and to pass on to the generations of those
unborn who will yet follow us a detailed account of our generation.

We live in comparative luxury and security, knowing that "never again"
applies to Jews >from every walk of life and >from all national backgrounds.

Why then to we do it? Some do because of a desire to find our relatives,
some to add to the storehouse of Jewish knowledge and some because we feel
it in some sense a religious calling.

In a more profound sense we do it because we have the holy chance to, in
some small way, unite ourselves with the history of the Jewish people. We
can by our little effort join those Jews who perished on Masada, those who
were sent into exile after destruction of the Holy Temple, to join those
who marched into Hitler's ovens. We proclaim that we stand with those who
perished in 48', 53', 67' and 73'.We declare our unity with all those past
and present who will suffer under the yoke of the tyrant.

It is only a little action to research the history of one or two of God's
families, but none the less, "It is God's work". A paraphrase, "He who
restores the memory of just one Jew, restores the memory of all mankind.

On these days before Rosh Hashanah and Yom Kippur, let us re dedicate
ourselves to do just that little more to be worthy of the name Jew and of
a place in his holy congregation.

Re: "Kolbisher Rebbe" ? #general

Brandler Institute of Chasidic Thought <bict@...>
 

Barbette Bloch asks about a "Kolbisher Rebbe" in the Bronx.

It is probable that her husband's grandfather prayed at the "Shtibel"
of Grand Rabbi Aryeh Leibush Teitelbaum of Kolbushowa, Poland, born in 1888
and died in 1941. He became "Rav" in Kolbushowa, Poland in 1911, and moved
to the U.SA. in 1921. He established a shtibel in the Bronx, NY. The "son"
referred to was probably his son and later his successor Grand Rabbi
Alexander Shmuel Teitelbaum who was born in 1908 and died in 1980.
Though the "Teitelbaum" dynasty (famous for its Satmar branch) traces
its roots to Ujhel, Hungary this particular branch had ancestors in
Kolbushowa for several generations.
For more information about this dynasty or any other please feel free
to contact me directly,

My uncle's Hebrew name is Honnannu. I've never heard of it and I've

There is no Hebrew name "Honnannu" as such. There are however, at least
three biblical Hebrew names that could qualify as "candidates": Hanan (in
Ashkenzic, Honon), Hananyah (aka Hananyahu) and Hananel. Of the three,
Hanan-el sounds closest to Honnann-u. Perhaps a pronunciation error crept
in at some point, resulting in the spelling you gave here?
