Descendants of Don Isaac Abarbanel in Burgenland #austria-czech

carole@...
 

Hi All,

I have a question for those of you with ancestry in Burgenland. Sometime between 1648 and 1653, Count
Franz von Nadasdy a feudal lord in Burgenland, permitted Sephardic Jews to establish a settlement in
Neufeld. These Jews had been expelled >from Spain/Portugal and came to Burgenland via Holland. After the
dissolution of Neufeld' Jewish community in 1739, the former residents settled in Mattersdorf and
other nearby communities, where they were all assigned the surname NEUFELD to differentiate them >from
the members of the original communities with residency rights.

There is a curious story told in the Neufeld branch of my family that we are related to Don Isaac Abarbanel,
the Jewish communal leader and financial adviser to King Ferdinand and Queen Isabella of Spain at the time
of Jewish expulsion >from Spain.

I am wondering if anyone else with roots in Burgenland shares similar stories and/or if anyone knows of a
history that has been written about the Neufeld Jewish community.

Thanks,

Searching for FELDER and SCHIRMER #hungary

Janice Faye Rosen
 

Hello everyone,

My name is Janice Rosen and I am >from Washington, DC.  I just joined
the Hungarian Special Interest Group email list.  I am a member of a
couple of other JewishGen lists.

I searching for information on my paternal grandmother's family, who
was >from Hungary.  Grandma's maiden name was Minnie Felder (she
married Sam Rosenblatt >from Austria in 1913).  Grandma Minnie came
from Hungary with her parents Louis and Esther (nee Schirmer or
Sherman) Felder in April 1894 when she was only 2 years old.  Louis
was a tailor in NYC or Brooklyn and worked at Hart, Shaeffner, and
Marx, and GGG mens stores.  Neither Louis nor Esther learned to speak
English.  They spoke only Yiddish even after coming to America.  They
never talked about life in Hungary or exactly where they were from.
Grandma Minnie got a good public school education in New York City
Public Schools during the 1890's and 1900's and was equally fluent in
Yiddish and English.  When I was a child and I would ask Grandma
Minnie to tell me about her parents and what she remembered about
them.  She did not know where in Hungary they came >from and said she
could not remember much about them.   All she could say is how much
Louis and Esther loved children.  Louis was born in Hungary in 1865
and died in New York around 1927. Esther was born in Hungary in 1862
and died in New York in 1933.   I do not know if Louis and Esther
Felder ever  became US Citizens.  My father saw his grandparents Louis
and Esther on occasion and loved them but they could not communicate
as my father did not speak Yiddish so he could not tell me much about
his grandparents.  (His parents would translate on the visits to the
grandparents).

I am trying to find out more about Louis and Esther Felder's ancestors
and where they lived in Hungary.   I need advice on how I might
proceed.   Non of the relatives who might know are currently living.
Felder is a common name and Hungary had a large Jewish population and
many towns.   So I was wondering if any one on this list might have
some information on the people I am describing here or where I might
look that would narrow down the search of all the Felders and
Schirmers (or Shermans) who would have been living in Hungary before
1894.


Thank you.

Re: Advice needed - 20th century research #galicia

"Galicia (and Poland) database give us at least some information up to
the end of the XIX century. But the real divider is Holocaust, which
had place about 40 years later. Urzad Stanu Cywilnego in Poland
provides only very specific data. For instance, when asked about
marriage of my aunt (I know her parents, date and place of birth), the
answer is that they I would have to know the name of her husband (and,
perhaps, other data related to him), which I do not know. How can we
search information about our ancestors >from less then 100 years ago,
without knowing them (which is a vicious circle)? Any suggestions?"

Actually, there are many public records >from the 20th century that are
available to researchers, and some of these will eventually be found
on the All Galicia Database. These include landowner, school and
voter records >from Galician towns for the 1920s and 30s, and some
Books of Residents cover the time until 1930. If you check Daniel
Kazez's excellent CRARG website: The Czestochowa-Radomsko Area
Research Group -- you find all sorts of Holocaust era records, and not
just for those two towns, but for all over Poland and for people
hailing >from many other towns further afield: http://www.crarg.org/

Gesher Galicia has access to landowner, voter, school (grammar,
gymnasium and University) and kahal records for the 20th century, and
the Lviv Historical Archives do not have the same privacy rules at the
Polish State Archives. Fortunately, the LDS has microfilmed the
Jewish vital records >from that archive and you can find certain
marriages, births and deaths ranging up until the 1940s. These films
are easily accessible at the Salt Lake City Family History Library, or
by mail order sent to your local Family History Center for a small
fee. It's true that not all the records for all of your towns may be
included here, but there are other options out there. For the towns
covered by the LDS films go to this page
https://www.familysearch.org/eng/library/fhlc/
where you can do a keyword or place search. (Combine the town
name with the word "Jewish").

The Central Archives for the History of the Jewish People in Jerusalem
also has 20th century records, as does the USHMM. Both continue to
microfilm in many Eastern European Countries.

Note that one town's records may be scattered between many different
archives and between Ukraine and Poland, so no guarantee that the town
you are looking for will be available to you, but it's worth
broadening your search.

The LDS church usually films vital records only, which is why Gesher
Galicia is currently engaged in digitizing other types of records that
include information of genealogical interest as a complement to vital
records or where vital records cannot be found.

Hope this helps!
