Follow-up: Trying to find town #hungary

Larry Briggs
 

First, thank you very much to so many Jewishgenners who quickly gave some great input.

As suggested, I have gotten more information to add to my post. First, the name is Abraham
Bercovich who left Hungary in 1883 and settled in Oakland, California. He was born in about 1845.
I mis-understood the document i mentioned. It was a published in Oakland about the successive
generations of Jews who settled in Oakland and their activities. In that, it was noted that Mr.
Bercovich came >from Tobolfola, Hungary. I am sorry for the confusion â?? it was not >from a
Hungarian document or record.

Thank you again to all who have helped.

I could not find it online currently nor could I find it through the Town Finder on Jewishgen. Any suggestions would be greatly appreciated.

Thank you.

Larry,

Lacking other information, I would suggest Tereblya, Ukraine, in
Sub-Carpathia. The pre-WWI Hungarian name was Talaborfalu, also listed on JG
Town Finder is Talaborfalva.

Re: researching German university #germany

Raphael Thurm <littletalmid@...>
 

Shalom,

I'm researching my ggg-father Alfred BRIE (1870-1942) who was an
editor and journalist in Berlin >from 1900-1932. He was born in
Rawitsch and went to the local real-schule. We understand that Alfred
was very educated and that he eventually went to a university and
majored in writing. He and his parents later moved to Berlin and he
married into an established Berlin family in 1899.

I'm trying to find out more about my ancestor's education. Is there
any way l can find out which university he went to?

Thanks in advance, Raphael Thurm Brooklyn NY littletalmid@...

Yes. This is not the official birth record. I was born in Elizabeth and have a
certificate of birth (with seal and all) which I believe was issued by the hospital
where I was born. I guess this was the practice in the State of New Jersey. When I
needed my birth certificate for marriage (out of state), the certificate was not
accepted. I needed to present the full birth record issued by the city.

JGSGW Sep 23, 2018 Program - Preserving the Memory of the Holocaust in Post-Soviet Space #general

N. Kotz
 

The Jewish Genealogy Society of Greater Washington will host our September Meeting
and program on Sunday, September 23 at B'nai Israel Congregation in Rockville,
Maryland.:

1:00PM Member Schmooze & Discussion: Join four tables with topics about Russia and
Ukraine
1:30PM Program Meeting - Preserving the Memory of the Holocaust in Post-Soviet
Space

American and Israeli Jewry's Holocaust commemorations have traditionally focused on
the experiences of those who were murdered in concentration camps in Poland.
However, about 2.7 million Holocaust victims close to half were murdered by bullets
in Nazi-occupied Soviet Union. Ukraine alone is estimated to have 1,000 Jewish mass
graves. Today, most of these are abandoned, and many are subject to ongoing
desecrations. What can American Jews do to ensure that the memory of the Jews who
died in Ukraine, Belarus, Moldova, and Lithuania is preserved and honored?

Izabella Tabarovsky is a scholar with the Kennan Institute at the Woodrow Wilson
International Center for Scholars focusing on politics of historical memory in the
post-Soviet space. Her particular focus is the Holocaust in Nazi-occupied Soviet
Union. Her articles have appeared in Newsweek, The Tablet, The National Interest,
The Times of Israel, and the Wilson Quarterly, among others.

A non-member may attend the monthly JGSGW meeting as a Guest for a $5.00
fee payable at the sign-in table. The $5.00 Guest fee may be applied toward
payment of annual JGSGW membership dues if dues are paid at the same
