Bardejov web page #hungary

come@...
 

I came across Steve Tarcala's home page and thought others may find it
useful. Among other things there is a list by name of Bardejov's Jewish
business owners in 1930, although the businesses are written in Slovak.
The address is http://www.tarcala.miesto.sk/
Please forgive me if this web page was mentioned before.

Dear Robert,

You are right on the mark! While the jury is still out as to why Hungarian
doctors and coroners used Latin expressions INTERCHANGEABLY with Hungarian
causes of death, I lean towards the school of thought which claims that
Hungarian medical graduates were simply so proud of their Latin knowledge
that they liked to show it off....at every perceived opportunity... What you
so charitably attribute to a typo, I would tend to ascribe to insufficient
mastery of Latin adjectives. As to the vagueness which you so correctly
discerned in the Latin name, I can assure you that the Hungarian equivalent
is equally vague. It was not uncommon among extremely old people to simply
stop eating when they felt it was time for them to meet their Maker.
The Hungarian cause of death is then usually shown as "vegelgyengules", which
literally translated means :"final weakening".

Dear Genners,

Looking for information about the Jewish emigrants which transited by
Cherbourg (in France) I posted a message on JewishGen on January.
I'd like to say a **Great Thank You** to all the people which answered
me and managers of SIG which insert my post in their newsletter.
