More on Hungarian Magnate records #hungary

henry wellisch <kelwel@...>
 

I have now been doing research in Hungarian records for over 20 years =
and still find that by far the best sources are the FHL microfilms. I =
don't think that there actually exist separate Hungarian Magnate =
records. Perhaps the Esterhazy records are still in Eisenstadt; they =
would be of interest to people who are researching their ancestors >from =
the Burgenland. Other records >from noble Hungarian families have been =
transferred to the National Archives in Budapest, I think.=20
It seems to me a good way to do a systematic search is to go to the FHL =
website, click on the town you are interested in and look for records in =
the following categories:

Jewish records
Church records
Census records (including 18th century)
Feudal and tenancy census records
Civil registration
Military records
Historical geography
Nobility
(There may be others)

You might also look under these general subjects:
Hungarian noble families
List of Hungarian families who received nobility
Register of officials and employees (1873-1945)
Who's Who Hungary (1930)

All Hungary Database updated #hungary

Warren Blatt <wblatt@...>
 

JewishGen is pleased to announce the addition of over 30,000 records
to the JewishGen "All Hungary Database", which is located at
< http://www.jewishgen.org/databases/Hungary >.

There are three new and updated datasets, as follows:

1. Updates to the 1869 Census database, including all Jews listed
in Saros megye (Saros county) as well as Jews >from Vranov and Cigand
in Zemplen megye (Zemplen county). There are now a total of 13,472
records in the 1869 Census database. Thanks to Marelynn Zipser for
the Saros records and Alex Miller for the Zemplen records.

2. A new database containing transcriptions of tax lists and census
lists other than the main census databases of 1828, 1848 and 1869.
These records include records >from the Hungarian SIG's Trencin census
transcription project, as well as records moved >from the Hungarian
SIG's website into the All Hungary Database. There are a total of
8,840 records in this database, ranging >from 1795 to 1850. All
records include surnames. Thanks to Bob Hanscom and his team for the
Trencin records and to Jaki Erdoes, Dr. Menachem Keren, Dolph Klein,
Cherie Korer, and Alex Miller for donating their databases.

3. A new database containing 8,644 names of Hungarian Jewish
concentration camp survivors, which were published in 1945 in
the Hungarian periodical "Hirek az Elhurcoltakrol". Thanks to
Debbi Korman and her team of proofreaders for this project.

Additional details about each of these databases can be found
by reading their respective introductions, accessible via
< http://www.jewishgen.org/databases/Hungary >.

The JewishGen "All Hungary Database" can be searched at
< http://www.jewishgen.org/databases/Hungary >, and the
lists of Hungarian concentration camp survivors can also
be searched via the JewishGen Holocaust database at
< http://www.jewishgen.org/databases/Holocaust >.

Information about the Hungarian SIG's projects is found at
< http://www.jewishgen.org/Hungary/HSIGProjects.htm >.
We thank all of the volunteers who contributed to these
additions to the JewishGen "All Hungary Database".

Budapest September 1944 #hungary

Peter Zimmer <Zimmer-Luedinghausen@...>
 

Hi H-sig list members,

I wonder if someone of you might be able to help me.

I am looking for information about a relative who lived in Budapest for som=
e time during WW II.
He was >from Prague and left Prague sometime between 1939 and 1940 for Budap=
est. He probably worked there as a chemical engineer.
In Sept. or Oct. 1944, shortly after the German occupation he returned to P=
rague where he probably hoped to find his family to support him. He died in=
Prague in a hospital for mentally handipapped people only a few weeks afte=
r his return.
He was a so called "half jew" in Nazi teminology. I believe he left Budapes=
t because he was afraid to be deported to the east as a "half jew" and hope=
d to be spared with a german father in Prague, but as it seems this didn't =
work out.=20
But all this is pure speculation, as I have no information about his time i=
n Budapest.=20

How can I find out where he lived in Budapest?, where he worked?, whether h=
e was listed in lists of jews? etc.


Thank you very much in advance,

Peter Zimmer

Dr Dawid LIPPMAN #general

Israel P <isai8v10@...>
 

I am trying to find out what happened to Dr Dawid LIPPMAN(parents were
Salomon and Gusta) who survived the Holocaust and lived subsequently in
Gdansk. I also wish to find out more specifics about his parents -
particularly his mother.

I will check yad VaShem soon, but in the meantime I submitted a question
at the US Holocaust Museum. They told me that I am not authorized to ask
questions.
Perhaps someone who is would submit that question for me.

Thank you.

KLEINERT New York #general

Alice Josephs
 

I have just received a lead on my family which I hope will lead
somewhere.

An elderly relative by marriage remembers that a cousin of my great
grandmother called Klara OPPENHEIMER, born HERZ, >from Baden
Wuerttemberg, Germany had relatives who were the KLEINERT family of New
York.

This KLEINERT family (the name the elderly relative came up with was Ira
KLEINERT, but she isn't sure about the first name) ran a well-known
company which manufactured babies' rubber pants. After doing a quick
search on the internet, I think they were at one time a rival to Playtex
and may be one and the same company with KLEINERT'S Inc which recently,
as far as I can ascertain, filed for bankruptcy.

Does anybody know this KLEINERT family? The elderly relative says they
acted as sponsors for Klara born HERZ and her husband Bernhard
OPPENHEIMER to come to New York in the 1940s. This makes me suspect that
the connection is through Anna HERZ (born 1865), Klara's sister and the
only sibling of that family I have been unable to trace. I know that
Anna did emigrate to New York, possibly in the 1880s. However it may, of
course, be another connection.

ViewMate -more Yiddish/Hebrew translations TURETSKY, PORTNOY #general

John Jones <quexi@...>
 

Hi,

I've posted five more family photos with Yiddish inscriptions on
ViewMate. These were >from my grandfather's album, and I'm
hoping that someone can fully translate the inscriptions to
English. The fifth one might have Hebrew or Yiddish -- I'm not
sure which.

The photos include members of the TURETSKY family >from Pinsk and
Montevideo and the PORTNOY family >from Pinsk and Israel.

To see them, please go to

COHEN/KAHAN/KAGAN-Rouxville #southafrica

SANDI ROOT
 

I have recently learned the occupation of the COHEN/KAHAN/KAGAN
brothers I search. Evidently they owned department stores,
possibly in the vicinity of Rouxville, Orange Free State. One
of the brothers is Malech, and his wife is Rose. The name of
the other brother is unknown to me. Both came >from Kovno,
Lithuania, possibly either Raseiniai or Kurshan. They could have
branched their business out to other cities, like Bloemfontein,
Durban, or Johannesburg.

I can only hope someone out there remembers a connection
between department stores and COHEN/KAHAN/KAGAN.
