FRITSCH - Ellis Island #romania

"רוזן
 

Dear Siggers
I just recently added in JGFF the FRITSCH family. and because I found two
new branches of FRITSCH family.

I want to find out more about those branches.

I look for the entrance of FRITSCH Louis (LAJOS) to the U.S, his Hungarian
name is LAJOS.
In my family there is an affidavit that Louis came to the U.S. on the 1.
10.1921 on the ship Manchuria.

In Ellis Island I found that FRITSCH Malovic came on 1. 6.1921 together with
FRITSCH Bela on the ship Manchuria.

Could it be that Louis and Malovic is the same person and it is all the
clerk's mistake?

Thank you

WOLSFHAUT and variants everywhere, but particularly Galicia>NY #galicia

Arielle K. Masters
 

I am researching WOLFSHAUT (and spelling variations that include
WOLFSHAUT, WOOLFSHOUT, WOLFSHANT, WOLFSHONT, WOLFSONT, and WOLSFAUT)
everywhere but especially Galician lines >from Sasov, Zlutchif,
Bialykamin, and Przemysl to NYC.

Some of the WOLFSHAUT families have abbreviated their name to WOLF,
WOLFS, and WOLFSON. Surnames that have appeared in Galician WOLFSHAUT
marriages or otherwise in the vicinity of Galician WOLFSHAUTs and their
near descendants in the records include BAUMANN, BLAUSTEIN/BLAUSZTEIN,
BOMZE/BOMZER/BOMSER/BOMSE, BR?NNER, BUCHSBAUM/BUXBAUNN, DEUTSCH, DINKES,
EHRENPREIS/EHRENPREISS, FRIEDMANN, FROMMER, GOLDENSTERN, GREENHILL,
HALPERN, HIRSCH, KLEIN/KLEINER, KRANZ/KRANS, KURZ, LANDAU/LANDES,
LEBENSFELD, MANDELBAUM, PARNES/PARNESS, PEPEL/PSSEL/PESSEL, SPRINGER,
STRAMER, TENNEN/TENENBAUM, TREIBER, WEICH, WEIGLER, WURM, and ZIPPER.
There's a Romanian line of WOLFSHAUTs as well; we are trying to
determine whether they are related to the Galician WOLFSHAUTs. The
Galician WOLFSHAUT/WOLFSONTs are my direct line; I have been trying to
connect to the other groups. I have more information about some of
these surnames than others.

I have, to share, a list of people with the WOLFSHAUT surname and
similar ones (WOLFSHAUPT, WOLFSHENT, WOLFSHANK, WOLFSHOOD, WOLFSHON,
WOLFSHITZ, WOLFZAHN) who came through Ellis Island, arriving in the
years 1904-1921. I have some WOLFSHAUT names >from the 1929 Przemysl
business directory. I have a list of WOLFSHAUTs (plus two WOLFs and a
WOLFSHOTH) >from the Sasov B/D indices for the late 1800s (incomplete,
but still useful) and a few JOWBR burial listings. I have some census
images, SS-5s/SSAs, and NY naturalization information for some of these
lines. There are mentions in late 1800s/1900sLondon records of a
WOLFSHINTS and a WOOLFSHOUT >from Austria (possibly Galicia) as well as
some WOLFSHAUTs.

If you are a member of any of these families, or know more about any of
them, please contact me privately. I would be happy to share my
information and would love to find new cousins.

Address to OKKH-Hungary? #hungary

Weisz in Nyiregeyhaza, Hungary #hungary

Nathan Rosenshein <nrosen@...>
 

I am trying to find a passport photo of Joszef Weisz (born 12/1892).
Currently, our family does not have a single picture of this relative...

The passport was processed at Nyiregeyhaza, Hungary around 1930 (give or
take).
Presuming that the authorities kept a copy of these photos for their own
records.
Joszef lived in Nyirmihalydi, Hungary, and was the son of
Nathan and Malvin (Malvina?). Joszef had a son named Leopold (Leibish).

Geographically, these towns are apparently near Debrecen.

The Budapest archives do not seem to contain these photos, as the
archivists have already been approached with incentives, and no
successful outcome resulted.

Does anyone have any bright ideas?
Thanks in advance.

If I understand the concern correctly, that the Hungarian Archives hold a film not in the LDS possession, why not purchase the film >from the
Hungarian Archives? Based on my own experience, the cost is about $18 per
roll (based on metric feet per roll) and takes about two weeks to copy and
two months to arrive by air mail.

Just place an email through the Hungarian Archives' web site, or fax them,
to set the process in motion. You will be asked to wire the cost to the
Archives' account, which you can take care of at your bank (unless the
Archives accepts credit cards by now).

Looking for Wizner Descendants from Buj #hungary

Katz, Itzik <Itzik.Katz@...>
 

Dear SIGGERs,

I am trying to find relatives of mine who live in the USA. Erno Wizner
(pronounced Vizner) immegriated to the USA after WWII and setteled in New
York or New Jersy. The Wizner family is >from Buj in Szabolcs county in
Hungary. My great-grandmother, Etel Wizner married my great-grandfather
Abraham Goldstein (born 10 May 1867 in Ujfeherto) and they lived in
Ujfeherto.

Abraham and Etel had the following children (known to me):
Ignatz Goldstein (my grandfather) born 13 April 1894 in Ujfeherto, perished
in the Holocaust
Ferencz Goldstein (Born in Ujfherto, unknown date of birth)
Deszo Goldstein (Born in Ujfherto, unknown date of birth)
Maron (Majer) Goldstein (Born in Ujfherto, unknown date of birth)
Rozsi Goldstein (Born in Ujfherto, unknown date of birth).

I have met Erno Wizner and his son when they visited israel in the 1970's
when his son got married.

The connection with the Wisner family was lost and I have no-one who could
help me locate them.

I'd appreciate any help you can offer me in re-establishing the connection
with my Wisner relatives.

Thank You,

Movie #hungary

mimi simon
 

I'd like to recommend a movie to H-Siggers: Gloomy
Sunday. It may be hard to locate as it has not been
widely distributed. The title refers to a song called
Gloomy Sunday, which was written in Budapest in 1933
and which was supposedly responsible or connected to
many suicides throughout the world. The movie covers
the period >from about 1933 through the WWII era and
revolves around the lives of three people, one of whom
is Jewish, and a fourth person, a German visitor to
Budapest. It is very well acted and compelling.

If you Google "Gloomy Sunday," you can read Roger
Ebert's review of the movie, which is how I got
interested in seeing it. He cites a website:
www.phespirit.info/gloomysunday/ on which you can read
about the history of the song, see different sets of
lyrics and the people who recorded it.

The movie is about much more than the song, however.
I highly recommend it.
