Hi thanks to all the responses to my request. The Craciunesti town I"m
referring to is Tiszakaracsonyfalva and the town Teresif is Teresva.
In the records that's known to me the wife of Jacob Hers Luger, Rivka
Katz was born in the town of Remeti. In the Jewishgen their is a
Joseph Katz in Remeti >from very early on but I can't find a katz from
a later period that could be the possible parents of Rivka. In
reference about not being able to live in Hungary what I understand is
that since he was originally >from Galicia and he went to learn in the
yeshiva of the rabbi of Chust (that was under Hungarian control) that
could make him be deported he had to hide his identity. Thanks again.

JewishGen Staffing Update - New Senior Level Position #hungary

Avraham Groll
 

Dear JewishGen Community,

I'm pleased to announce another staffing shift as we continue to
develop JewishGen's internal structure to make the best use of our
resources.

As of last week, Warren Blatt has assumed the new position of Senior
Genealogist for JewishGen.

In this newly created senior level position, Warren will ensure that
the JewishGen website remains reflective of genealogical standards and
that the archival transcriptions are as accurate as possible. He will
accomplish this by providing strategic direction and support to the
Senior Research Team, while also serving as the primary liaison with
technical staff for database projects.

As Senior Genealogist, Warren will also play a larger role in
representing JewishGen at various speaking engagements, and responding
to media requests for comments on Jewish genealogical issues.

Warren's technical background and genealogical expertise make him
particularly suited for this position. A software engineer before
joining the JewishGen staff in 2003, he has worked in various roles,
most recently in the position of Managing Director. Previously, as
JewishGen's Editor-in-Chief, he authored the JewishGen FAQ
("Frequently Asked Questions About Jewish Genealogy"), and dozens of
JewishGen InfoFiles. He is the author of Resources for Jewish
Genealogy in the Boston Area (Boston: JGSGB, 1996), and co-author of
Getting Started in Jewish Genealogy (Avotaynu, 1999), and other works.

Widely recognized for his contributions to Jewish genealogy, in 2004
he was awarded the International Association of Jewish Genealogical
Societies (IAJGS) Lifetime Achievement Award in Jerusalem.

Please join me in congratulating Warren on his new position.

Thank You - Translation Assistance for Viewmate #73750 #germany

Joyce Eastman
 

I want to thank every who assisted me in translating the old German script
document concerning the death of Jakob Michael HONIG.

Our HONIG-WILDER family can now add another sibling of my paternal
grandfather to our family tree. Jakob Michael HONIG was previously
unknown to any members of our family and is quite a find!

I also must personally thank Renee Steinig who assisted me in finding
this document on Ancestry.com. Without her diligence I never would have
been able to find this information. In the process of researching my
WANK and KATZ families >from Brooklyn, NY, and the information
I received >from GerSIG researchers, it eventually led to the
discovery of two sisters of my grandfather as well.

The JewishGen digests as well as Viewmate are an invaluable tool, and I am
thankful for all the wonderful people who read these digests on a daily
basis. They have provided so much information in response to my requests
over the years, and I am eternally grateful for all the help. I am an
annual donor to JewishGen and support them in the great work that they do to
assist all of us in our family research.
