Re: Records for Zemplen County #hungary

Subject: Records for Zemplen County
 
The census listed the town in Zemplen county as Sokut. I am assuming
that this is also known as Szeged.

Jonathan,

Sokut (actually, Sókut) is not the same as Szeged, which is in Hungary
proper, not Slovakia. Check the 1882 gazetteer at
www.bogardi.com/gen/g166.shtml for a complete list of towns in Zemplen; the
town is shown on Google Maps as Sol' (with an apostrophe), just northwest of
Vranov nad Topl'ou (a.k.a Varannó). As with many towns in Zemplen, they may
have not had enough Jews to register as a significant community. To get it
listed for JGFF, you will just need to prove it exists.

Descendants of Simon/Samuel and Bessie GOLD (Russia-London-Philadelphia)? #general

Martha Forsyth
 

I'm looking for descendants of Simon (possibly Samuel/Solomon, abt/.
1880-?) and Bessie (Rebecca? (abt 1884-1917) GOLD.

This couple were originally >from Russia (Gomel region, I believe the
village Vetka); they lived in London at least long enough to have a son
Philip born there (1903); then came to Philadelphia about 1905 and had
four more children: Samuel (1905-?), Max (1907-1988?), Eva (1910-?), and
Isaac (1912-1912 - he lived only a month or so).

Philip m. Pearl (maiden name unknown) and they had two children:
Beatrice (~1926-?) and Melvin (~1930-?).
Max m. Rhea WOLKIN (1909-1997) and they had one child, Herbert (1930-?)

I have tracked this line through the Census, and just tried to reach the
youngest members I have (Melvin and Herbert; Beatrice seems too chancy
since I don't know if she married) but the numbers that come up online
so far are all defunct. (I didn't chase all the FL ones - yet!)

Simon may be related to a Ralph GOLD (whose family I've also worked on
tracking) and a Max FRIEDLIN may also be a relative.

Any takers?

[USA} Final Rule by HHS on Patient Privacy ,and Health Information #general

Jan Meisels Allen
 

The US Department of Health and Human Services (HHS) published a new final
rule addressing patient privacy and health information. As genealogists we
are interested in family medical history and this pertains to who may
receive information and how it is protected. The new rule may be read at:
https://s3.amazonaws.com/public-inspection.federalregister.gov/2013-01073.pdf
It was filed on January 17, 2013 and has "not" been published,
therefore, it is only available in pdf format at this time:
http://tinyurl.com/a8273qr
Original url:
https://www.federalregister.gov/articles/2013/01/25/2013-01073/modifications
-to-the-hipaa-privacy-security-enforcement-and-breach-notification-rules

It is 563 pages long! Per IAJGS PRAMC Member Ken Ryseky: The rules will be
posted in the 25 January 2013 Federal Register hopefully with a table of
contents!
The HHS press release may be read at:
http://www.hhs.gov/news/press/2013pres/01/20130117b.html

Among items of interest for genealogists:
genetic information is protected under the HIPAA Privacy Rule and prohibits
most health plans >from using or disclosing genetic information for
underwriting purposes.
provides the public with increased protection and control of personal health
information.

The rule becomes effective March 25, 2013 and business providers and
associates and others must be in compliance by September 23, 2013.

The new rule also establishes new limitations on the use and disclosure
of protected health information in certain circumstances. It does addresses
under protected health information when a contractor or other business entity
has a breach of security and the name, social security number and other data
elements of individuals may have been released- and the individual's
identity is effected - this is something that we have been watching in the
Congressional Hearings on Social Security Death Index (SSDI) and the
inappropriate use of Social Security numbers (SSN) by people who have used
deceased as well as living SSN for fraudulent reasons - and the attempt to
close down the SSDI for the public. Although in a review of SSN the new
rule does not appear to address this specific issue (SSDI).

I have not read all 563 pages so if you have questions, please read the rule.
