Re: Planning Trip to Ukraine #hungary

If you are planning on accessing records in the
Uzhhorod/Mukacheve/Berehove region, you should know that they are closed
to researchers.

If you would like to obtain a copy of a birth/marriage/death record,
this is what I was told when in Mukacheve last year:

1. Such records can be requested only if they concern your
parents/grandparents/great-grandparents, etc.
2. You cannot obtain records for aunts/uncles/cousins, etc.
3. You will need to provide proof that you are a direct descendant of
those mentioned above.
4. This proof will have to be notarized and accompanied by an official
translation of same, notarized by the Ukraine consulate.

This is the "official" version. I have been told that there are "ways"
to obtain whatever information you need. But, that is not very kosher...

Perhaps other siggers have different information?

Dear all,
I have posted several photos of tombstones (taken by a woman who lives not

Can someone give me translations of the Hebrew? I believe that my ancestors
include Rabbi Moses Michael EPSTEIN, his son Lippman EPSTEIN who died in
Schwarza in 1899, and Lippman's wife (Karoline?). The links are VIEWMATE

Re: Fw: term "WIthout Profession" in a birth or wedding Document #romania

lradu@...
 

Basically it means the person is not engaged in any earning occupation
outside of the family. If it is a woman -- it is a housewife, if it is an
older man -- he is "retired". Possibly if it is a richer man it may say
" profesie libera " as opposed to " fara profesie" (like someone engaged in
market speculation, if such a thing existed there and then).

Viewmate 7504 - 7505 #general

Paul Silverstone
 

I have put up on Viewmate two photographs presumably taken in New York
in the 1910s-20s.

7504 shows three children probably taken in New York - maybe Silverstein
relatives.

7505 shows a young lady stylilshly dressed during the 1910s.

Can anyone shed any light on who they might be? They were found in my
uncle's family album.
