You may be having trouble connecting with other Schmulian / Smulian families
as your family was apparently >from Kharkov, Ukraine, and a number of the
others were >from Lithuania.

It may be just a matter of having the same name or it is possible that there
was a connection at one time, but it may be that it is too far back for
present day families to remember.

It is always good to do an Internet search for your family name and ancestral
shtetl first and then searches to the places where they went to live afterwards
such as South Africa.

In this case, present day residents of Kharkov would have been found with
the family name.

Romanian/Moldovan resources of JewishGen #romania

Rosanne Leeson <rdleeson@...>
 

Dear fellow ROM-SIGers,

It has come to my attention that a number of you are not aware of the
many databases of JewishGen that contain resources related to research
in Romania and Moldova.

For example:

JewishGen Holocaust Database lists the following resources:
Tirgu Mures Deportation List, 1944
Tirgu Mures Ghetto List 1945
Transnistria: Jews receiving and sending Support
Jews of Oradea
Jews of Des(Dej) in the Ghettoization of May 1944
Jews >from Iasi who survived the transports
Balta Ghetto
Balta Orphans
Balta Battalion - Romanian forced laborers
Deportations >from Dorohoi to Transnistria
Bucharest Jews males - Oct 1942
Cluj children survivor
Who prished on the Struma?
Claims Conference Romania
and many others...

Scroll down to the list of Component Databases at:
http://www.jewishgen.org/databases/Holocaust/
and see what is available there!

Yizkor Books:
Pimkas ha-kehilot Romania Vol. 1 & 2 Some translations still in the
process or needed!
Iasi
Oradea
and others.
Go to: http://www.jewishgen.org/yizkor/database.html and
enter your town name to see if there is one available.

And do not forget the All-Romanian Databases, and the many links for
Romania, Transylvania, and Moldova that we have added to our Home Page:
www/jewishgen.org/romsig Click on Links to takeyou to our listings!

I hope this will be of help to you all

Svaty Mikulas; Miklas #austria-czech

Oliver Bryk <oliverbryk@...>
 

I received information >from the archives in Prag regarding the parents of my
grandmother Matilda Neuburg, born in Horovice, and her two sisters. (I am
purposely leaving out all accent marks). The data are extracted >from "Die
Geburtsmatrikel der juedischen Kultusgemeinde in Praskolesy".
Matilda's father was Moritz Neuburg; his father Isak Neuburg came from
Grosstopolcian (Topolcany); I understand that this was in Hungary at the
time and is now in Slovakia.

Matilda's mother's parents were Jos. Meyer >from Sanct Niklas (Svaty Mikulas)
and Fany Meyer >from Miklas in Hungary. I assume that Sanct Niklas is now in
Slovakia. Can anyone tell me where Miklas might be located?

Shalom I'm a newbie and I am struggling with DoroTree and have been
unsuccessful in contacting their support. My specific problem is that I
cannot figure out how to move data >from the index to where I wish to
place it. In other words, when I want to place a person who is in the
place of the father to the place of being a son of his parents the
program wants me to enter his information again and that makes many
duplicates on the index list. I know this can't be right. I also am
trying to correct a mistake where I ended up as a child of an aunt and
uncle. If anyone is familiar with this program and can help me I would
be quite grateful.

Hello,

I would like to ask where I can find 1887 birth records (or the
address of a local registry office) in what was Russ in Landkreis
Heydekrug and is now Rusne in the Silute district of Lithuania. Do
civil registration records exist for this period?

Thank you,
Graeme.
