BREUERs born in Lucenec, Slovakia and on the move! #austria-czech

Alyson Breuer
 

Dear Fellow Austria-Czech Genners:

I have again taken up the search in earnest for family members >from present-day
Lucenec (Losonc/Losoncz), Slovakia and now look to all of you to see
if any names ring bells in your areas of study!

It occurs to me that there must have been some freedom of movement
around the Austro-Hungarian lands up to 1914 and probably in
Czechoslovakia between the wars; >from what I can intuit, these BREUERs
were of the merchant class, so willing and able to up sticks and
settle elsewhere. I've posted a similar message on the Hungarian SIG
page. Could I ask you then to please ponder any BREUERs that you
might have come across in your researches and share their details with
me?

Specifically, I am looking for Fulop BREUER and his wife, Marie
STOSSEL, who had 4 children born in Lucenec: ARANHA, b.1876, OLGA,
b.1878, MALVIN b. 1880 and IREN, b. 1883. Ferencz BREUER (1846-1924)
and his first wife, Julia SCHLESINGER (c1850 -
1893) also produced children in Lucenec: BIRO (name changed in infancy
from Arnold),
b. 1876; ERNO, b. 1888, Olga (1879 - 1892) and JENO, b. 1888. There
are two more Lucenec BREUERs: ERNO, b. 1877 and ARPAD, b. 1878, both sons of
Vilmos (Viliam) BREUER b. c1850 and Julia BRAUN b. c1850-1883. A
third son of Vilmos does not appear at all in the LDS filmed pages of
the Lucenec Rabbinical birth records for the late 19C >from which all
this information is taken -- my grandfather-in-law, OTTO BREUER, born
in 1875, who owned the main town square pharmacy and stayed until the
bitter end in 1944!

They all seem, with the exception of Otto, to have sunk tantalisingly
without trace and I am wondering how to track any of them down.
Lucenec was a thriving, prosperous Jewish community between the wars
with a splendid Synagogue, so there is no obvious economic reason why
the men should have left, though with marriages and new business
possibilities elsewhere, any could have moved away -- this is a very
large haystack and my needle is minuscule! Did any of them come to
the US? No idea, but they might have. Strangely, none of them is
shown in the wartime list of Jews in Lucenec on Yad Vashem, either as
victims or survivors.

I would dearly love to forge a link with any or all of these BREUERs,
so do please give me a heads-up if you can help!

Many thanks!

Dear Group,

Hope you are having a pleasant summer.

I have posted the marriage record of Moszek RAWET and Szprynca SZAJNFARB

I am especially interested in learning the family detail and town of
origin for Szprynca's mother, if present in this record. A complete
translation would be greatly appreciated.

It is written in Russian.

Can anyone translate or at least extract all the vital details?

includes the town of Smiela.

We ask for your help as we start this new fund raising effort. Please access

pay for these translations:
