WEINBERGER fm. Tiszalok #hungary

Pataki <pataki@...>
 

Hi,

As a new member to H-SIG, I'm hoping some-one may be able to help me
trace
family >from Tiszalok, Tiszabecs & regions.

My mother Ilona Halasi was born 26 May 1916 to Mor(Avraham Moshe) Halasi
(Tailor) and Lenke(Leah Rivkah) Weinberger. She was one of 7 siblings.
This
is all the information I have and wonder if anyone may know of her
family.
It seems Weinberger family had been in Tiszalok for a long time. Don't
know
where Halasi originated >from - they may have been "Haas" or "Haz".

I am also trying to trace my father's family- My father was Abraham
Mihaly
born 10 April 1910 in Tiszabecs Hungary , son of Vilmos (Shmuel) Mihaly
(Farmer) & Fanny Klein (originally >from Kisvarda, Hungary). My father =
was
one of 9 siblings.

I have tried finding records in Jewishgen but no success so am trying =
this
avenue.
Thanks

Isidor SCHREIBER, Stropkov and Chicago #hungary

Dan Breslau <sinespam@...>
 

Here's a story about a newly-discovered connection that I'd thought
didn't exist. I know this is long, but I hope I've managed to keep it
interesting. I also hope someone might be able to help me follow it
further.

Part of my mother's tree looks like this:

Cecilla (Celia) WEISSBURG, b 1857 in Erdobenye
+ Leo ROSENBAUM
Edward ROSENBAUM, b. 1884 in Kisvarda (?)
+ Pauline SCHREIBER, b. 1883 in Erdobenye

I have a copy of a privately-published book about the Weissburg family
of Erdobenye. It references a book named "An Uneventful Life of Seventy
Years", which was privately published by Isidor SCHREIBER. Isidor was
born in 1858 in Stropkov, and died about 1942 in Chicago. The
Weissburgs book described Isidor as a friend of the Weissburgs, and
hinted at a kinship between Isidor and Pauline SCHREIBER's family, but
had no details.

Later, after I bought a copy of "Between Galicia and Hungary: The Jews
of Stropkov", by our own Melody Amsel-Arieli, I discovered that she also
references Isidor Schreiber's book. I'd already been trying to obtain a
copy of Isidor's book, but had no luck searching for it. Finally, Melody
kindly took the trouble to create and send me a copy of her copy.
However, after I received it, I saw no meaningful correspondence between
his tree and mine, and so decided that Isidor was probably not a
relative after all.

Meanwhile, I'd been waiting to receive some information about the
ROSENBAUM branch, >from a relative on that side of my family. Yesterday
I received a large envelope containing a bound sheaf of paper, along
with a note: She was still preparing the ROSENBAUM family tree to be
written to a CD; in the meantime, she wanted to send me something she
had that was written by a Schreiber relative. This was a carbon copy of
the manuscript of "An Uneventful Life of Seventy Years" by Isidor
Schreiber. My cousin obtained the manuscript >from her grandfather (and
my ggf) Edward Schreiber, and does not know how Isidor was related to
our family. (I guess it's still possible that he was only a family
friend, but this certainly seems less likely now.)

Below are the SCHREIBER trees >from Isidor's family and mine. Does
anyone in h-sig recognize any of the following names?

Isidor's tree (information >from his book, combined with 1869 Hungarian
Census information) :

Wolf SCHREIBER (Rabbi in Stropkov)
Elimelech SCHREIBER b.1821
+ Channa (Anna) GROSSMAN b. 1825
David 1842
Liebe 1844
Bernat 1846
Leopold 1848
Jacob 1850
Krunye 1852
Sam 1855
Isidore 1858
Simon 1860
Samuel 1864
William (Volf) 1868

(Isidor did list both a "Sam" and a "Samuel". Sam was listed as "Sija"
in the 1869 Hungarian census.)

My SCHREIBER tree, in part:

Herman SCHREIBER, aka Tzvi Hersh SOFER-SCHREIBER b. 1794. d. 1870,
Sarospatak
+ Bella SPIRA b. 1795, d. 1873, Sarospatak
Josef SCHREIBER (b. 1825, Sarospatak ?)
+ Kati GRAD
Nathan SCHREIBER (b. 1853, Erdobenye)
+ Hermine NEUVOHNER (b. 1855, Mad)
Pepi (Pauline) Schreiber

(*) Tobias (later lived in Mandok?)
Philip (aka Yisroel Efrayim Fishel SOFER-SCHREIBER, A.B.D.
Hajdunanas)
Gaspar
Betti

(*) Note: Tobias SCHREIBER was definitely in my tree, but it's possible
I misplaced him by adding him to this family.

My thanks to Melody, and all the h-sig'ers who have helped me so far
(you know who you are!)

The Name GRITOCH in Bucharest #hungary

pollinia@...
 

Dear Genners,

As part of my research I came across the name GRITOCH; Can someone tell me whether this is a first or last name?
At any case, I'm trying to locate descendants of a German man (this Gritoch) who married a Jewish woman (Illy Grunwald), and lived in the Bucharest before and after WWII, as far as I know. Let me know if this rings a bell to anyone.

Best Regards,
Shaul Sharoni

century, told in the context of the national movements, attitudes and policies
that are inseparable >from history.

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

"Refuge" ...Surviving the Nazi Occupation of Poland: Memoirs of Kalman Horowitz

told by Leo, son of Kalman. This book contains salvaged photographs as well as
those depicting experiences. A memorial to Kalman Horowitz, and to all the others.

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

"Let Them Journey" True stories uniting the past with the future, told in
simple words by the people describing their lives and giving the reader an

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

"Flight To Survival" The compelling account of a coming of age story of a
young woman's bravery and will to live. In simple prose, often laced with her

the Nazis invaded her home town in 1939, to ultimate survival in Eretz Yisrael
in 1945.

Mar Heshvan #general

Paul & Irene Berman <ikpjb@...>
 

While other interpretations of the term "Mar (bitter) Cheshvan" may very
well be correct, the one I've heard is that "mar" is not an integral part of
the name of the month. Rather "mar" refers to the fact that Cheshvan does
not contain a holiday, unlike the months preceding and following it that
contain Rosh HaShanah, Yom Kippur, Succot and later Chanukah.

MODERATOR NOTE: Please continue discussion of the origin of the
name of the month Heshvan or Marheshvan privately. Responses
related to genealogy will be considered for posting.

Answer to Lois Segal Friedman:

It could be interesting to learn all that the family has been naturalized in 1906.
The research of the file is the first thing to do, not difficult but time consuming.
Then, as usual, the more difficult, but not impossible is the research of the
descendants.
