Homepage of the Jewish Bekescsaba #hungary

Dear H-SIG-ers

may be some of you might be interested, I created with Peter Farkas (son of
Marianne Farkas) a homepage of the Jewish Bekescsaba, in Hungarian, German and
English, it contains a short description of the past, fotos, lists and also view
of the memorial wall of the victims of the town and some surrounding communities. You can find the site under

https://jewish-bekescsaba.com/

all the best

Moderator: Gabor, why not move this to a JewishGen KehilaLinks website for Bekescsaba??


Alternative to LDS source for records: Bardudvarnok, Gyongyos #hungary

Greetings, I have been quite fortunate in finding records >from many
towns through LDS, either on FamilySearch or at a Family HIstory
Center, thus have become rather spoiled. I recently found a lead to
new line of family >from Bardudvarnok, Somogy megye. Civil
registrations available through LDS do not include the timespan of
interest. Similarly, while FamilySearch has many records for
Gyongyos, Heves megye, the collection inconveniently omits the years I
need.

Any and all suggestions for alternative ways to access records (of any
sort) >from these towns would be gratefully received.

Thanks in advance,

Hello, I seek help in identifying the age of a deceased child on her
death record. The record indicates she was 3, but I was not told
whether it is days, months or years.

ViewMate translation request - Russian #lodz #poland

annette bagle <annette.bagle@...>
 

Hi All
I previously requested translation of a Lodz registration Card and as
aresult found a previously unknown family member, Roza Wajnkranc.
This prompted me to write to the State Archive in Lodz and was
thrilled to receive 13 documents related to this family but they had
nothing for Roza. She was 12 years old in 1920 - can anyone suggest
where else I could look?

I would be grateful for a translation of the first five documents
which look like Russian to me.

Russian names #lithuania

Hi,

On certain records for an ancestor it says Gessel or Hessel
(sometimes with only one 's'). But then we encountered records
that say Kushel.

Could these three options be the same name/person?

Thanks in advance

Re: GRABER of Sanok, Galicia #galicia

Joseph Walder asked for "suggestions for archival research about my
GRABER/GRAEBER ancestors of Sanok
First, i would do a single-surname search for GREBERs in the Sanok
area...try to connect the families >from the various sources. Those
family trees will almost certainly be tied to yours eventually, and
you may find connections with living descendants with the same
genealogical interests. Once found, DNA autosomal testing is another
way to corroborate the descendant connections.

Next, try the JRI-Pl database, as they have online: Polish State Archives
Location Years Available Indexed Years Online Type Status
Archive 60 Fond 421 1890 - 1906 M
Archive 60 Fond 424 1864 1864 B
Archive 60 Fond 424 1867 1867 B
Archive 60 Fond 424 1869 - 1913 1869 - 1905 B
...although JRI=PL doesnt seem to have the later birth records.

next, Joseph, try the Sanok Archives in the Polish National Digital Archives.
For research in the Polish National Digital Archives (NDA) for Western
Galicia. I would suggest that it is easier to research these archives
directly with four tools:
...Howard Fink's NDA Guide for JRI-Poland , which can be downloaded
from http://jri-poland.org/help/NDA_Guide.pdf. It gives step by step
instructions.
...JRI-PL's galician vital record titles
translated...http://jri-poland.org/galicia/GalicianVitalRecords_Titles_Nov2002.pdf,
...Google translate for translating data within the records, and
...Chrome for translating web pages, titles, search commands.
I usually begin by going directly to the NDA at
https://szukajwarchiwach.pl/ and key in a town name and a polish word
for Jewish Records (Hebrajski or Hebrew, Israel or izraelickie, Jewish
or Juden, Mojzesz or Zydow); each record collection uses different
titles. You can use asterisks as wildcards at the end of any term.
Then i click scans only, to reduce the number of results, then i use
Chrome to translate the titles of the results.

Within the NDA i did see this item for GREBER but it was not
scanned...outline of the woodshedery of mojzesz Greber >from 1878
I did see this file of scanned documents: Book of Births of Sanok
1906-1913...these are 140 scanned pages in polish.Next is the really
hard part...slogging thru the unindexed records...but wow if you find
something!

at the Center for Jewish History, 15 West 16th St. New York

Program: "Life Under the Tsars: Registration, Residence and Exit Routes"
Speaker: Alan Shuchat

Records of the Russian Empire show that people often registered as citizens
of one town but lived in another.
What was the system of registration and residence permits under the tsars
and later in the Soviet Union
How were people divided into social estates? How did our ancestors obtain
steamship tickets and travel from
their shtetls to the steamship ports? To help trace our families before their
from the Russian Empire,
genealogist Alan Shuchat will discuss how these records and historical
knowledge help us trace our families
before they arrived here.

Alan Shuchat is Professor Emeritus of Mathematics at Wellesley College. He
has researched his family's
history for several decades and traced back to around 1800. He coordinates
the Ukraine Special Interest Group
at the JGS of Greater Boston and is an instructor in its annual genealogy
course.

Henry Marcus the 19th C travel entrepreneur #general

Jonathan Myers <jmyers31@...>
 

I am doing research into the role of Jewish people in the development
of the railways, particularly in the mid 19th C, though not
exclusively. I have come across a man by the name of Henry Marcus, now
a little known individual but at the time well known for the
excursions he ran. He was a rival of the now well-known Thomas Cook
(who founded the travel business still in existence).

The name Marcus suggests he might have been Jewish and I would like to
determine if this is so. He was running excursions around England,
coming to major prominence in the 1850s. He was based in Liverpool.

Genealogy is not my field so I would appreciate any information about
this man concerning his Jewish identity, if it is there. Or pointing
me in the right direction to find this out.

Sincerely

Dr Jonathan Myers
