Lipany, Slovakia / Hethars, Hungary ShtetLink #general

Debbie Raff
 

It appears that I have authored a ShtetLink ShtetLink site for Lipany,
Slovakia (formerly Hethars, Hungary) this weekend! This was not a plan at
all, but just evolved.

This is a classic case of getting the cart before the horse. In fact, it
was only a few minutes ago that I filled out the reservation form , which is
usually the beginning of the process.

The site is not online, yet, but I thought I would write the group, and ask
if anyone out there happens to have photos for Lipany or other information,
which may be of assistance. There is a town of the same name in the Czech
Republic, but this is not the town that I am referring to in this post.

I have used the usual sources, including the newly published "The
Encyclopedia of Jewish Life". Now, I thought I would see if somebody out
in cyber-space has a treasure trove of old postcards, etc. or an interest
in this town. Right now, I think only my relatives are on the Family
Finder.
;-)

Please contact me privately, and of course, thanks in advance,

VM1814: Translation from Hebrew - 1 word - Profession #general

Yaacov Slizak <yslizak@...>
 

Dear Friends,

Can someone help with hte translation of one Hebrew word in the following
document?

http://www.jewishgen.org/viewmate/ALL/source/vm1814.html

I need the translation of the ***middle*** line only. The picture is an
extract of a Page of Testimony and it describes a profession. It reads like
Bet,Kuf,Reish but I'm not sure about "Bakar" in Hebrew being a profession
(as a noun it means cattle).

Jewish surnames from the Mosel region #france

gregor brand <Gregor.Brand@...>
 

On my homepage I published an article (in German) about "Mosellaendische
Ortsnamen als juedische Familiennamen". You can find it under the following
address:

http://www.angelfire.com/art/gregorbrand/Namen.html

It deals with Jewish names >from the 17th and 18th century who were derived >from
the names of villages and towns in the German Mosel region (between Coblence and
Trier). Some of these surnames are still existing today.

Surnames mentioned are for example: BERNKASTEL/BERNCASTEL; SCHWEICH; TRIER;
WITTLICH; TRITEM; KLESSERT; DETZEM; SOBERNHEIM; KELSEN; MEHRING; MEERFELD;
KILBARG; PINNERICH

There were of cause different spellings of these names.

With best wishes to all

Up until this past week, I've had no problem connecting to the Romanian
telephone directory via http://www.teldir.com However, something has
happened and I cannot get to the white pages, and after connecting to
the yellow pages I get bumped off and receive an error message >from my
ISP, Netscape. I've sent an e-mail to Infobel, the company that
maintains TelDir online and am waiting for a reply.

1901 UK Census - downloading records by Archival Ref. No. #general

Naidia Woolf <rnwoolf@...>
 

I have the Archival Reference Numbers for my paternal great grandparents,
Solomon and Sarah ISAACS (#s 20742540 & 20742541, respectively). How do I
download copies of their census records, knowing the reference number --
where do I go (what mode/page/link) do I go to download them, etc.?

PRO's Test Site (under the heading "Census Charges" - Page 2 of 2) states:
"if you know the exact reference of the census image you wish to view, you
can access it directly. Some <page types> are FREE to view." Unfortunately
there doesn't seem to be a field for inserting the requisite number while
you are doing a online search.

Oddly enough, when I did an advanced search under the name of ISAACS,
BIRMINGHAM, RUSSIA, I got an Annie ISAACS(same name as my paternal
grandmother but a different individual), but not my paternal grandparents

-- Solomon and Sarah. When I asked (out of curiousity) for Other Members of
Household, up popped a template (for downloading the PRO Census applet and
although I could see the original document on the screen I couldn't print
it; everything locked up and I had to break out. I hope I don't have to pay
an additional (2nd) fee for the same record.

Any suggestions would be appreciated.

VM1803--Need help with translation of German or Polish script #general

Mike Kalt <mkalt@...>
 

I have received a copy of my grandfather's (Moses Mordche SPERBER) birth
record, which I have posted to ViewMate as VM1803.

The record lists his parents (Chaja Ruchel WEINBACH and Mechel SPERBER,
from Sambor), but the names Elie and Taube WEINBACH also appear on the
record. My assumption is that they are Chaja Ruchel's parents, but I can't
make out the writing which indicates exactly who they are.

If anyone can take a look at the record and let me know who Elie and Taube
are, I would appreciate it.

The record can be viewed at
http://www.jewishgen.org/viewmate/ALL/source/vm1803.html, or by going to
the main viewmate page at http://www.jewishgen.org/viewmate/toview.html and
selecting to view vm1803.

Thanks in advance for any help.
