Shana Tova!

I have been looking at the Metrical Books of the Czernowitz Jewish
community through the Family Search site.

My late mother Rosa was born in Czernowitz on December 31, 1920, but
there is no record of the birth on the relevant pages of birth
records. Could anyone with experience of these records advise me why
this might be? I am certain about the date. Could it be that some
families did not record births for some reason? Are there other
sources for births in Czernowitz during those years? I'm also looking
for marriage and birth records in Czernowitz in the 1930s.

Many thanks.

Zev Cohen

Where In The World Is Berchsas Techec? #hungary

Hi All -
First of all I just returned >from my citizenship interview in
Budapest, so if anyone wants to know more about that I'm happy to
share.
My neighbor knows little about his father's origins so I'm helping him
where I can. Their family considers themselves Hungarian.
I'm not finding any reference to this place name BERCHSAS TECHEC
anywhere, which seems odd.
I've copied the text below >from the original birth record and have
tried to check Hungarian, Czech and Slovak sources.
The only reference I found is in a book about Hungary in Italian >from 1687!
If anyone has any ideas, leads, suggestions I (and my forlorn
neighbor) would be grateful as I am stumped.

Re: Modezarhely #hungary

larrybassist@...
 

H-Siggers,

Following up on Ron Wasserstrom inquiry about the Hungarian town "Modezarhely" and Tom Klein's answer, along with Vivian Kahn's comments:


This is a very strange, seemingly impossible situation:

I found two ship lists for this Weisz family, one for the Pennsylvania sailing >from Hamburg 7 Nov 1913 and arriving in New York on 21 Nov. The other for the Amerika sailing >from Cuxhaven 6 Nov 1913 and arriving in New York on 15 Nov. But both lists have the same family, same names, same ages, coming >from the same person and going to the same person and address.

The list on the Amerika gives better place names: I think it is Udvasarhely and 5 other birth places.

Does anyone have any idea how the same family could be on two different ship lists at the same time? Hamburg is inland and Cuxhaven is a seaport. I could see taking one ship >from Hamburg to Cuxhaven then another to New York. But the Hamburg date is after the Cuxhaven date, so that idea does not seem to work.

What are your thoughts?

I have posted the ship list images in ViewMate as follows: (also please see if you can read the town names to help out Ron)

1st page SS Amerika >from Cuxhaven 6 Nov 1913 - 13 Nov:

following universities:
