USA Lost Family: DEITSCH/DOITSCH #general

USA Lost Family: DEITSCH/DOITSCH
Hello, Dear Friends!

I'm trying to resolve a very old "family mystery", a solution of which will
maybe discover a whole logn-lost branch of the family.
My great-aunts, Eide and Feige ANTZEL/ANSEL Origionaly >from Tavrig -
Taurage - Lithuania, (any other spelling is possible) emigrated to the USA
around 1905 >from Lithuania. (I didn't find relevant records in Ellis Island
site.) Eide married Getzl (possibly not his American name)
DEITSCH/DEUTSCH (again, any other spelling is possible), and they had 4 or
5 children, 2 of them were (male) doctors(?). Eide and Getzl may had a
Deli. Feige (died before 1922) married Idel (don't have sirname) and they
had 2 children.
I've found a possible connected record in the 1930 census of Illinois
(DEUTSCH Ida married Jacob), as well as 2 possible records in the SSDI (for
Ida DEUTCH) - but I can't tell whether these entries are connected.
Some 50-60 years ago, the connection with them was broken, and no sign of
life arrived since then. I'm quite sure their descendants are still alive
and I promised myself to find them.
If anyone can help in this mystery - I'll be more than glad to hear,
Yours Sincerely,
Hanna Kochavi, Israel

Nizhniye Veretski, CZ #general

Vivian Kahn
 

Czechoslovakia didn't exist until after WWI. I think that you're
looking for Alsovereczke (accent on the o), Hungary, which is what this
place was called in 1912 when your grandmother was born.
Alsovereczke was in Bereg megye. According to a presentation that Alex
Dunai made at the conference in Washington, the Ukranian name of the
place formerly called Nizni verecky is now Nyzhni vorota. Any records
that exist are probably in the archives in Uzhgorod, which has been a
very difficult place to access.

My grandmother, RECHTER, Debora was born in Nizhnye Veretzki,
Czechoslovakia in 1912. Her parents were RECHTER, Jozef and
FISCHER, Rosa. I have been looking for many years for any
information about what happened to her parents and siblings
who were in this town when the Nazis invaded. The Nazis
deported the residents of this town to a death camp in 1944,
but I don't know which one. Before the war, this town was part
of Czechoslovakia, during the war it became part of Hungary,
currently it is in the Ukraine.

What I am specifically looking for are Transport Lists or
other documents that have my great-grandparents and their adult
children's names on them. If these do not exist, then any
documents that state the deportation date and destination of the
residents of this town. I know this is not an easy request.
Any help this group can provide would be most appreciated.
Below is all the information I know about this town.

Program re Jewish genetics #general

Naidia Woolf <rnwoolf@...>
 

Dear Group,

I'm posting the following notice on behalf of my synagogue in San Francisco
-- a wonderful little, haimische conservative shul in San Francisco founded
by German/Jewish who were confined to the Shanghai ghetto during WWII
(about which I wrote an article which appeared in Shemot, the JGSGB's
quarterly). As noted below, Dr. Neil Risch (a long-term and highly
respected member of my shul) will be discussing the genetics of Jewish
populations & related genetic diseases, among other issues relevant and of
great potential interest to those interested in the evolution of Jewish
populations, including social & medical issues such as those surrounding
human genetics.

I have no financial interest in Dr. Risch's research, nor in the program
being presented at my synagogue.

Dr. Neil Risch, Professor of Genetics at Stanford University School of
Medicine, will speak on the topic:
A Human Genetic Perspective on Jewish History

Sunday, January 25, 2004 >from 2:00 to 4:00 p.m. (free)
at Congregation B’nai Emunah, 3595 Taraval St. @46th Ave., San Francisco.

Dr. Risch is world renowned for his work in human genetics and his work has
been featured in the New York Times and numerous research publications over
the last two years. He is also an adjunct investigator at the Division of
Research, Kaiser Permanente, Oakland, CA. His particular interest is in
the genetics of Jewish populations and Jewish genetic diseases, which will
be the focus of his talk. After providing some background information on
human genetics, Dr. Risch will explain in layperson’s terms the presence
and reasons for genetic diseases observed in the Jewish population, the
origins of the Ashkenazi Jews, and other related issues.

Re: Hungarian-Czech war #hungary

The answer probably lies in the war against the communist regime which was raised with the
leadership of Bela Kun, at the end of the WWI in 1919 and lasted for less, than a year. The
Hungarian "Kommun" was defeated by the forces of the neighboring countries, including Romania and
Czehoslovakia.
