Translation of GF's work book on ViewMate #hungary

neumanp@...
 

I have placed four pages of my grandfather’s work book on ViewMate and
would appreciate any translation and interpretation of the entries.

I have had this document a long time and have always wondered what story
it tells. I have tried to decipher the entries but haven’t figured much
out beyond the dates. My assumption is that it traces his various jobs.
I think it begins in Budapest and he ends up in Debrecen before
emigrating. My grandmother is >from Debrecen and I assume they met there
although they married in NY after immigrating in 1892/1893.

Any insights would be greatly appreciated.

KLAUSNER and AMSTER from Bardejov/Slovakia #hungary

Abuwasta Abuwasta
 

Dear Siggers,
About a month ago I posted a query about my wife's paternal grandmother Bina KLAUSNER who married Eliezer(Lazar) APOTHEKER in Bardejov. My wife's father,David APOTHEKER(1908-1995)was born in Bardejov though the Apothekers
had roots(like many others in Bardejov) in Neu Sandez(Nowy Sacz).Bina died young before WW1 after delivering 9 children.
A few days ago we got the 1895 Bardejov wedding entry of Eliezer Apotheker(son of Saul APOTHEKER and Lea LANDAU) and
Bina KLAUSNER(daughter of Loebl KLAUSNER and Eszter AMSTER). The bride's side were registered as residents of Bartfa(Bardejov).The Rabbi? and the witness? were Tobias PERL and Hermann Klausner respectively.
Needless to say that this new info opens new directions in our research. It explains why one of the siblings of David,Leo Apotheker,
lived before WW2 in Budapest(I saw in JGFF that there were many AMSTERs in Budapest).
If any ofthe a/m names are on your lists,especially Eszter AMSTER,we would like to hear >from you becauseAMSTER is new for us.
Thanks in advance
Jacob Rosen

Re: Hebrew inscription on tombstone #hungary

Thank you to all who translated the Hebrew inscription for me on VM
and have told me that the death date is not contained in it. As
suggested, I will pursue this further on the Austria-Czech SIG.

I would appreciate a translation of the tombstone inscription for my
great-great aunt, Katharina MAUTNER geb. Schneider.

http://www.jewishgen.org/viewmate/viewmateview.asp?key=3D14046
http://www.jewishgen.org/viewmate/viewmateview.asp?key=3D14047

The first image, which I obtained >from her ggg grandson, is of poor
quality and is not labeled. =A0The second image is an attempt to sharpen
it so the Hebrew is legible. =A0I am trying to find Katharina's death
date and any other identifying information, so I can look for an
obituary in the Neue Freie Presse.

Katharina died between 1892-94, probably in Vienna, but I can't find
the listing in the JOWBR. Two Katharina MAUTNERs are listed as buried
in Wiener Zentralfriedhof, but their death dates are 1902 and 1935.
Katharina's sister, my great grandmother Eleonore Schneider PICK, died
in 1878. Her original grave was in Wahringer Friedhof, but was moved
to Zentralfriedhof in 1941. I am wondering if the same have happened
to Katharina Mautner's grave.

Brooklyn Synagogues, burial societies & cemeteries #general

Bea <blspabas@...>
 

In London England, if a couple married in a particular synagogue it can
sometimes be straight forward working out the most likeliest burial society
they belonged to, and the most likeliest cemeteries they were later buried
in. I am seeking similar information for Brooklyn, Kings, New York.

A wedding took place in Brooklyn in 1914, between Mr Abe/Abraham ROSEN
(formerly ROSSIN and RESSIN) and his wife Rose (nee CHARMAS), both were
immigrants >from Belarus - he >from Vitebsk, and she >from Minsk.

The address of the wedding ceremony is very badly written but looks to me
like 144 Grattan Street, Brooklyn, and the person performing the ceremony
was Sam Horowitz.

Can you help to identify a synagogue by this man's name? Can anyone tell me
if the above address was a synagogue or not? If so, what was the name of
that synagogue, and what is the name of the current synagogue society it may
have been amalgamated with since then (if that was the case)?

Is it possible to narrow down which likely burial society and cemetery this
couple would have belonged to and which cemetery they would most likely have
been buried in, in or near Brooklyn, between 1950-1980?

Many thanks,

Bea Shiel (London) blspabas@...

Re: Eyes -- indicators of where you came from? #general

May I suggest that it was not your brothers eyes that prompted the
good doctor to suggest that he came >from Russia/Poland, but probably
the contents of his conversation, where he lives and in fact what
information was on his medical chart.
There is no scientific evidence that would allow the eyes to make it
possible to identify ones origins that I'm aware of at this point in
time.

Seeking Researches of Philip Kovarsky #general

Marc DVer <mdver@...>
 

Based on other information, including naturalization information, when
combined with the responses I have previous gotten here, I am
speculating that the name of the Rabbi who officiated at the marriage of
my great-grandparents was Philip KOVARSKY. If you happen to be
researching him would you please get in touch with me? I am seeking
information about his synagogue at the time or those he might have
served afterwards. He was born in Russia in or around 1856.

Sincerely,
Marc DVer

Re: Information On Synagogue at 217 Forsyth St. Manhattan #general

Marc DVer <mdver@...>
 

I have been under the weather, but I intend to thank everyone who helped
individually. Let this be considered a preliminary thank you.

As for why I thought that 217 Forsyth was the location of a synagogue,
the short answer is "oops".

The long answer is that the marriage certificate I obtained listed the
Rabbi's name, official station, and residence. I had assumed that the
marriage took place in the synagogue, and therefore the address was for
the synagogue. It has been pointed out that the marriage did not have
to take place in the synagogue proper.

Thank you all who answered. Anyone else who wants to take a look at the
certificate can feel free to take a stab at it, as the official station
is so illegible that any guesses are welcome.

Sincerely,
Marc DVer
