Dr Henry Gluckman studied at the University of London. The book 1965
South African Jewry has a bit about his family. It doesn't mention
where he was born.

I found some more information in the South African Jewish Year Book 1929.

(London). Born in Russia in 1893. Educated at King Edward VI I.
School, London Hospital (London University). Married to Fay Hillman in
1921; has two sons. Director, Johannesburg Municipal Venereal Clinic;
Lecturer and Examiner on Venereal Diseases, Witwatersrand University;
Hon. Consulting Venerealogist, Johannesburg Hospital; Hon.
Vice-President, British Social Hygienic Council. Postal Address: No.

Other Hungarian Census Update #hungary

Eric M. Bloch
 

John,

The database search engine seems to be working fine. Be certain you
have properly logged into JewishGen. Then, under databases, click on
Hungary. Then do your search. When you get a listing of all the
databases that meet your search criteria, click on the button showing
the number of hits on the right side. DO NOT click on the button that
says "Other Hungarian Census Records on the left side. If you do, that
simply takes you to the description of the database.

How do I search the recently updated census data? I tried to search the 1773 Conscriptio Judeorum that have 2443 entries. But could not get in.
I tried various ways: relative's name and received my former memos, name of town and received everyone who searched certain relatives, tried census and a few other combinations, but no luck. I found my relative years ago in the 1928 census thru the Mormon records. How do I access the 1773 census records compiled in Jewish Gen. Thanks.

Have you looked here:

http://www.national.archives.gov.za/index.htm

I selected "Search National Automated Archival Information Retrieval System NAAIRS)"
and then the RSA database. Typing "Gluckman" gave a large number of hits,
including information about Henry's naturalisation, etc.

I also looked at Ancestry.com which suggests birth 1893 in "Russia". There were
no "Dr Gluckman" entries on the British Medical Register.

Hope this helps.

Paul Smith.
