Dear Shaul,

Alsoribnice (Nizna Rybnica) also known as Alsohalas. The town is
located in Michalovce district today, but was former Ung County until
1920. It was recorded by the Szobranc (Sobrance) Community. Some
years of births available in Budapest, and the whole births, marriage
and death records are kept in Ungvar (Uzhhorod).

Dear Genners,

My Grunwald lineage has its roots in the former Austro-Hungarian
empire. Today part of my genealogical research concerns this lineage,
and I'm looking for someone with immediate access to Jewish records
on microfiche, of Onod (Hungary) and its surroundings, as well as
Alsoribnice, now known as Nizna Rybnica in Slovakia. If you have such
access please contact me in private and I'll give you additional info
on what exactly I'm looking for. Your help would be highly appreciated.

Best Regards,
Shaul Sharoni,

Slovakian research website #hungary

alex.miller@juno.com <alex.miller@...>
 

I came across a most interesting Slovakian research website
http://www.iabsi.com/gen/public/

Among others it has an alpha list of Hungarian-Slovak village names,
links to the on line 1715 census(I did see some Jewish last names
there... Fleischer, Kuschnir...) and the Hungarian National Archives,
Photos, Holding Inventories.

Take a look!

Hi Jenners,

I am trying to find anyone who knows about the VERNIK family >from
Kobrin, Belarus. The information that I have is Yosef Avraham VERNIK
(wife unknown) >from Kobrin had two children that emigrated to the US.
They were Rebecca, born in 1890, ( married Tobias GRUNT), and Annie
(husband changed last name to Cohen and was a tailor). Both of the
daughters lived with their families in Newark, NJ.

I would appreciate anyone with information on this family to contact me

Welcome to Jewishgen, Lilian. I always tell people whose family came >from the
erstwhile Habsburg Empire to do a little search in Vienna too and Lilian has
very wisely also posted to the Austria-Czech SIG:
http://www.jewishgen.org/austriaczech/ >from which our thoughtful moderator

Vienna, the Imperial Capital was the great magnet in the 19th and early years
of the 20th century till the Jewish population was decimated in WW2. So I have
started the ball rolling for Lilian and have found the following on the "Letter
to the Stars" [the holocaust site for Austrian Jews]:
http://www.lettertothestars.at/

1. Salomon GRANIERER born 10 April 1903 in Czernowitz deported together with
Chaja born 08.12.1896 in Sokal
2. Israel GRANIERER born ? in Sadagora deported together with Olga born
19.05.1883 in Vienna Wien
3. Josef GRANIERER born Sadagora 16 Feb. 1901
4. Samuel WAGNER born Czernowitz 10 Nov. 1890

There is very likely to be a link to Lilian's family with one or more of the
victims listed above, we remember here today. More data will be available in
Vienna on these families.

But returning to Czernowitz - there is a monumental translation work which was
recently completed for Jewishgen - Yizkor Book "The Jews of Bukowina" [see
footnote] - and if you go to the Jewishgen homepage: http://www.jewishgen.org/
and scroll down: you will find a box called "search this site": enter
"GRANIERER" and you will get a big surprise!

Dear Sonja,

Town name is Zolkiew [zhuh wkiev].
In the Elis Island handwritten manifest, first letter of town is represented
by "J" not, "T", but indeed it can be confused with "T".
Since the travelling documents have been issued in French, town name was
speled as Jolkiew instead of its Polish name: Zolkiew.
Current town name is Zhovkva in Lwow (Lviv) Province of Western Ukraine.

Re: Name Changes on Immigration #unitedkingdom

Aubrey Jacobus <zen28027@...>
 

Who started this nonsense which we all have heard ten thousand times ?
However it may not be as simple as " Your immigrant ancestor changed it
himself, to blend in."
although this was certainly generally the case - for example my father z"l
who was an immigrant >from Poland was illiterate and assured me our surname "
Jacobus " was never changed - but his brother retainded our original name
Jakubowicz until many years after immigration . I have concluded that while
working in Germany for a period before arrival in UK the German Aliens
Office had transliterated his name ( correctly according to Beider ) from
the Polish (Cyrrilic) form to the Germany ( Latin ) equivalent . Certainly
every other Jewish family with the name Jacobus is German.

painstakingly located the documentation outlined on my website at

There is, of course, a good chance that these same headings will contain
