Re: Help finding graves in Budapest #hungary

HungarianRoots
 

Dear Joe,

1. Oroklet has that problem. I haven't been able to move the pages 2,
3., etc.
2. MACSE database is NOT complete! Budapest, at the time, had 14
districts. different years of deaths are available for different
districts. SO that may be the reason you don't find those records. If
you know which districts' deaths are available there then you can
manually check for the death in the districts that are missing (on
family search.org).

I have checked for you and 1903 death records have been transcribed by
MACSE only for these districts:
- Current IV. district (formerly Ujpest, not part of Budapest in 1903).
The original district IV. was registered by district V. at the time.
- VI. district

It means you will have to manually check 1903 deaths for districts I.,
II., III., V., VII., VIII., IX., X., XI, XII., XIII., XIV.

I suggest you start with districts V., VII., VIII., IX, XIII. in Pest,
(which were the most Jewish districts or the ones with hospitals.)

Wishing you good luck.


I hope this helps.

My gggf Jozsef KLEIN (son of Armin/Herman KLEIN and Regina/Roza
GRUNWALD) died in Budapest on February 25, 1903 at the age of 69 years
old. Over the past few weeks I've tried to use the Oroklet website to
find his and other family graves, particularly that of his wife
Maria/Marie/Mari KLEIN nee EISLER. She died between 1903 and 1929,
although after much searching of various possible spellings I cannot
find her death in the MACSE database. I have two questions that I
hope someone can help me with:

First, after entering the search parameters on Oroklet.hu and getting
the beginning of the search results, none of the keys or links move me
off page 1 of the search results. I've tried different web browsers
and every time I click on a number/link to move forward in the search
results, the same page 1 of the results just reloads. Furthermore,
even if I don't search a name but click the letter "K" to look through
the entire database of surnames starting with that letter, the list
of results instead starts with the letter "A" and I cannot move off
that page. Any suggestions for using the Oroklet site? I used the
site many times a few years ago and never had problems.

Second, does anyone know for sure if the MACSE death record database
is complete for the years 1903-1929? Since I cannot find my gggm
Maria KLEIN nee EISLER indexed there, should I assume she didn't die
in Budapest, even through she is very likely buried there? I'm
assuming those years are included in the MACSE database because I
found other deaths there that occurred decades past the period I'm
interested in.

Thanks for any help finding the burial sites of this couple.

In response to the messages below. You might contact the
Jewish Historical Institute in Warsaw.*http://www.jhi.pl/en/genealogy*

The Institute has a genealogy department and they have records
from survivors immediately after WWII that are not available anyplace
else. Amongst other things, survivors filled out cards stating names
of relatives and where they would like to go. The Institute has the
originals. It is possible that you may find some information there.

You might also check the International Red Cross International
Tracing records that are at the Holocaust Museum in Washington.
These records are not on line and you will have to check with the
Holocaust Museum for information and assistance.

Good luck!

I was told by my mother in law that none of her family survived the holocaust.
While searching on a genealogy website today I found a gentleman with

Dear Fellow GerSIGers,
I have been following the messages in this SIG for some time
and found the data flow quite interesting and useful.
This is my first post. A friend gave me this link to
Landesgeschichtliches informations sysyem (LAGIS) Hessen
I found this resource very useful in particular the section titled

Juedisch Grabstaetten (Jewish Cemeteries [in Hessen])

http://www.lagis-hessen.de/de/subjects/index/sn/juf

Here you can find photos of all Jewish gravestones in the land of Hessen.
Most gravestones are transcribed and the Hebrew text translated
into German. The cemetery and the location for each gravestone is mentioned.
Some of the entries also have a brief biography and
cross reference to other persons who's gravestones are in this database.

I found the gravestones of several of my ancestors and was able to close
some gaps in my family tree. I have not yet explored other entries in
the database but it seems there is a lot of information there in
a relatively easy to use interface. There is an "English button"
but only a small part of the text is available in English.

Some of the entries also have a brief biography and
cross reference to other persons who's gravestones are in this database.

I found the gravestones of several of my ancestors and was able to close
some gaps in my family tree. I have not yet explored other entries in
the database but it seems there is a lot of information there in
a relatively easy to use interface. There is an "English button"
but only a small part of the text is available in English.
