György Schwarcz #hungary

Giselle Bodziony
 

Dear Genners,


I'm looking for György (Georg, called Gyuri) Schwarcz, born in Zsujta,
Hungary. He could be 80-90 years old today. His father, Gyula Schwarcz, and
his brother, Istvan Schwarcz, were killed by the nazis. György and his
mother survived the Holocaust and lived in Zsujta and Budapest after WW2. In
the beginning of the 1950ies (before 1956) they escaped >from the Communist
regime in Hungary to Vienna. I was told that afterwards they went on to New
York. György Schwarcz married and had children.
My grandfather, Dr. Ernö Schwarcz (who was killed in Budapest in December
1944), and Gyula Schwarcz (György Schwarcz' father) were siblings. In
connection with György Schwarcz I heard the names Satori and Szegö.

I ask you to help me to find György Schwarcz and his family.


With best wishes,

Giselle Bodziony

* Slovak Holocaust victims suffer legal setback #hungary

Tom Venetianer <tom.vene@...>
 

Dear all,

The article below, >from the Slovak Spectator, could be of interest to Slovakian Holocaust survivors
http://www.slovakspectator.sk/clanok-388.html

In short, a suit brought by representatives of Slovak Jewish Holocaust survivors against the German government was thrown out by a Berlin district court, March 28, 2004, because the organization did not have *the right to represent* Slovak Holocaust victims.

The Central Union of Jewish Religious Communities in Slovakia (UZZNO) will appeal.

The best
Tom

Judy Young translation response #hungary

B Frederics <picturethisfilm@...>
 

In response to Judy's inquiry about my translation request, yes it is an
1871 marriage record. However, this was written on the right hand page
so obviously the clerk was following up on keeping the record straight.

Thanks for your translation and thank you to everyone who replied.

Subject: translation re marriage
From: "Judy Young" <jy-abcd@cyberus.ca>
Date: Wed, 22 Sep 2004 15:02:28 -0400
X-Message-Number: 15

I would make a couple of changes to Tom Klein's excellent deciphering of the
handwriting in Viewmate 4709 re Dr Ernst:

Tom's version is here:
"Jegyzet: A be'csi cs. kir. orsza'gos to:rve'nysze'k polga'ri oszta'lya'nak
1901 janua'r ho' 31e'n Cg II.377/900 / 16 sza'm alatt levo: ve'gze'se'vel

kimodatott./?????????????????/ 1901 ma'rcius 13."

My version agrees with Tom's first line but continues after the numbers in
line 2 as follows: "Cg II. 377/900 / 16 sza'm alatt kelt ve'gze'se'vel a
ha'zasfeleknek a'gyto'l e's asztalto'l valo elva'la'sa kimondatott (9406)
..sz. tan. Hat / 1901 ma'rcz 13.

It's a strange text: the translation would be something like:
"Note: According to the decision taken by the civil section of the national
imperial / royal Vienna court on January 31st 1901 under number Cg, etc.,
the separation of the marriage partners >from bed and table has been
announced" [alternatives for the last word: 'pronounced' or: 'declared in
public']

When was the marriage? And is this a divorce or something else?

Dear Genners,

I just realized that I made a slight mistake with the country of two
of the cemeteries I mentioned in my Part II update. PIR and URISHOR are both
in Romania, as opposed to Hungary.
Also, for the benefit of the newcomers, the acronym HFPJC stands for
Heritage Foundation for Preservation of Jewish Cemeteries.

Sorry for the inconvenience ...

All the best and best wishes for an easy fast...

Re: Genealogy software #hungary

However, any special capablities that the program offers will be lost.

Ask your relative to save the file as GEDCOM, the standard interchange
format for genealogy files. Then you can use any contemporary genealogy
program to import the GEDCOM file into it.

It is a file ending with (suffix) FLW, and based on my internet research,

Any bright ideas?

HFPJC Update-Part II-Cemtery Restoration Projects #hungary

hfpjc
 

Dear Genners,

Firstly, I'd like to commend those of you who have responded already to
my Part I posting and for your warm words of thanks and encouragement; I
will try to respond to all of them as soon as possible.

Well, following is a list of all those cemeteries for which there is
considerable interest among the families and descendants to have restored.
All of these have already been evaluated-the preliminary step-and are either
in various stages of preparations for the projects or are being seriously
considered and processed(i.e. actual work will be immediately initiated upon
signing of contracts between HFPJC and family members/descendants.) Once
again, if you recognize your ancestral hometown, or if anybody has any
information that might be beneficial to the projects, please contact our
office. Also, digital photos of these cemeteries are available upon request.

I know that many of you have some roots in
Satoraljaujhely(Eihel)Hungary, so this is bound to be of interest,
especially as I have received requests and inquiries regarding this cemetery
from many J-Gen members.:
SATORALJAUJHELY, Hungary
The Jewish cemetery(New) of Satoraljaujhely is a huge cemetery. Granted,
the first section of the cemetery is in decent condition, but the lion's
share of the grounds are so badly overgrown that it is often impossible to
reach the gravestones and countless stones are even completely obscured from
view. I am happy to inform you that we have recently commenced the major
task of clearing the grounds of all the bush and wild vegetation so that we
can get an idea of the amount of gravestones in that cemetery. According to
our rep who was there together with an experienced contractor, he
approximated the amount to be several thousand tombstones! Of course, only
once the cemetery is cleaned can we determine the scope of restoring all
the damaged and neglected gravestones. Furthermore, in light of the sloping
grounds of the cemetery, a plan for a drainage system for the rainfalls is
currently being studied by a special engineering team. I will keep you
posted as to the progress.

DRAGMIRESTU, Romania
To be enclosed and restored internally. Project in latter phase of
preparation.

GUKLIVIJ, Ukraine
Cemetery open to all and in terrible condition. Descendants being
contacted-any others who have pertinent info.

HAJDUSOBOSZLO, Hungary
Large cemetery, to be properly enclosed.
Gathering of interested family members and descendants in process.

HAJDUBESZORMENY, Hungary
Grounds severely overgrown; vegetation to be cut and cleared in near
future, followed by individual photographing of tombstones and maintenance
arrangements.

PALEU, Hungary
Very bad condition. Gathering of interested family members and descendants
in process.

PAP, Hungary
The erection of a durable, concrete enclosure to be commenced in coming
weeks.

PIR, Romania
To be enclosed properly and restored internally. Project in preparatory
phases.

RAKHOV, Ukraine
Retainer wall urgently required to support eroding earth. Gathering of
interested family members and descendants in process.

STRIMTURA, Romania
Erection of concrete enclosure to be commenced in near future, followed by
interior restoration.

TISENIC/STROPKOV, Slovakia
Preparation for cutting wild vegetation in process. To be followed by
restoration of gravestones.

URISHOR, Romania
Interior to be completely restored. Project still in preparatory stages.

VALCAU DE JOS, Romania
Erosion posing substantial threat. Thorough research and correspondence with
Mayor yielded urgent(though very costly)need for a retainer wall. Project
still in preparatory stages.

ZHURAVNIKI, Ukraine
Recently evaluated-complete results being studied and to be released
shortly. Cemetery in deplorable condition. (Project initiated by Yizkor
Book Project Coordinator Mr. Gary Gershfiel >from Forest Hills)
----------------------------------------------------------------------------

I will try to keep you updated with the developments of these cemetey
projects.

Best regards to you all and in this merit, we we all be blessed with a Happy
Jewish New Year!

I've recently received a family tree written in Polish which includes some
branches of my WECHSLER family. I'm trying to identify Arnold WECHSLER
(born about 1820) and his daughter Fanny WECHSLER (born 1865), both of whom
were >from "Siedmiogrod" according to this tree. (There is an accent over
the second "o".) Is "Siedmiogrod" a specific city or town? My Google
search identifies it as a region of Transylvania, but I'd like to get more
precise if possible.
