Re: Needed- brief Polish Translation #general

Tilford Bartman <bartman@...>
 

Hello,

I have been fortunate to have gotten ahold of a historic document
written in April of 1945 that I'm told concerns the disposition of
Jewish property in my fathers native Zabludow Poland. It is just a
paragraph or two long. I would be most appreciative is someone can
take a look at it and tell me what it says. I can email an electronic
copy right away to anyone who can do this for me.

Thanks So Much,

Tilford Bartman

Professional researcher sought #galicia

Edith Spring <adena@...>
 

I am a member of Gesher Galicia.

I am interested in locating the names and addresses of professional
researchers. These would be people who would be able to research the
archives for the following towns. Horodenka, Ukraine and Przemysl,
Poland. I am primarily interested in the years prior to 1910.

All help would be greatly appreciated. Please respond privately to:

Chorowiec #galicia

Suzan Wynne <srwynne@...>
 

Rick Hyman asked about where the records of Chorowiec might be today.
As noted in my book, Finding Your Jewish Roots in Galicia: A Resource
Guide, on page 136, Chorowiec was in the sub administrative district of
Podgorze within the main district of Wieliczka. Today, birth, marriage
and death records are in the branch of the state archives in Krakow.
The processes for obtaining information >from this archives are discussed
in Chapter 2 beginning on page 15.

First name of "Hrnah"? #galicia

JoeO222@...
 

Hi...

On a death certificate, one of my female ancetors is listed as having the
first/given name of "Hrnah". Is there such a name? It could have also been
spelled "Hrnak". Or, maybe just a misspelled "Hannah"?

Does anyone have any thoughts? Thanks.

Rapoport #belarus

Sheldon Clare <sheldonc@...>
 

My wife's maiden name was RAPOPORT. Her father was born in Krasna Luki
near Vitebsk. It is a fairly common name that has an interesting history.
It is either of Italian or Portuguese origin. "Rapa" may have come >from the
Hebrew "Rofeh" meaning physician and "Port" could have been the Italian
city of Porto or the Portuguese city of Oporto. Apparently, the original
Rapoports were sephardic.

* Hungarian militaries deceased during WW2 #hungary

Tom Venetianer <tom.vene@...>
 

Greetings

I saw this on another gen list. It was sent by Janos Bogardi, a member of
H-sig, who quite often reveals very important genealogical sources. This
one is also one of such important listings - it contains the names of about
28,000 persons deceased on the eastern front during WW2. Note that it also
lists names of Jewish soldiers! I found my cousin's name who disappeared in
Ukraine. The URL is:
http://www.netlap.hu/vasarnapiujsag/hosok.htm

However be aware that the pages are VERY long and take forever to download.
Files are close to 1 MB and they take 30 or more minutes to download - the
site's server is very slow! So, if you know how to download a HTML file
using a FTP file transfer program, instead of letting your browser bring
the page I strongly recomend you do an FTP download. On a Macintosh this is
a trivial task, I don't know how to do it on a PC :-(

the best and a nice Shabos
Tom


------------------
Janos Bogardi's message:

A book recently published lists personal data of the many deceased people
of the Hungarian military in the eastern front during WW2. This book was
compiled by two archivists at the Military History Archives and Museum,
Budapest, Hungary: Janos Bus and Peter Szabo. The title of the book is
"Beke poraikra". Authors succeeded in collecting data of some 28,000
persons, serving either as soldiers or in work battallions.

Vasarnapi Ujsag, a weekly, usually cited as rightish, populist programme of
the Hungarian Radio made an interview with one of the authors. The script
of the interview is available on the website of the progamme:
http://www.netlap.hu/vasarnapiujsag/13lakatos.htm .

What is even better is that Vasarnapi Ujsag publishes some columns of the
full list that appeared in the book! See:
http://www.netlap.hu/vasarnapiujsag/hosok.htm

This site is in Hungarian. People are listed alphabetically by surnames.
Colums included are: name, rank, date of birth, mother's name, place of
residence.
