Ungvar vital records #hungary

Sam Schleman <Samara99@...>
 

I just learned today that a relative may have been born in Ungvar, a town
that I had not previously researched.

When I looked in the FHL on-line catalog, I was unable to find any records
listed for Ungvar. The only hit I got was on a book giving the history of
the town.

Am I not looking correctly? Can someone point me towards the Ungvar vital
records?

Thanks for your help.

Moderator: Use the H-SIG town cross-reference guide to find the present name of formerly Hungarian places. Ungvar, formerly the main city in Ung megye, is now Uzhorod, Ukraine. Records >from the 1848 Census of Ungvar's Jewish residents are included in JewishGen's All-Hungary Database. Check the H-SIG message archives for discussions about the difficulty obtaining vital records in this part of the Ukraine.

Jacob KATZ born 1889 in Beregszasz, Hungary #hungary

Hilary Henkin <hilary@...>
 

Dear group,
In researching my own KATZ family, I have received the naturalization
file for Jacob KATZ, born July 23, 1889 in Beregzasz, Hungary. His
wife was Hermina, also born in Hungary.

This is not MY Jacob KATZ. If he's in your family, let me know, and
I'd be delighted to send you the papers.

Slovakian Death records #hungary

Sam Schleman <Samara99@...>
 

Hello all;

I need to obtain the death record of someone >from the town of Vel'ka Ida,
which was in Hungary, but now is part of Slovakia, >from near Kosice/Kassa.
The record in question is >from the period 1896-99.

I have an address, but am wondering what is the protocol? It is acceptable
to write the letter requesting the record in English? Do I include money now
or will I be asked for money at some subsequent point?

And about how long a process is it to obtain such a record?

Your help is greatly appreciated.

Thank you.

JewishGen welcomes the Danzig/Gdansk SIG #france

Carol W. Skydell <cskydell@...>
 

Dear Friends,
JewishGen is extremely pleased to announce the formation of the JewishGen
Danzig/Gdansk Special Interest Group (SIG), which will focus specifically on
Danzig -- now Gdansk, Poland -- including its precursor communities of
Altschottland, Langfuhr, Mattenbuden, Weinberg, and Danzig in der
Breitgasse, as well as Tiegenhof/Nowy Dwor Gdanski. The unique history of
this community and the exceptional survival of its records presents
a marvelous
opportunity for collaborative genealogical research under the JewishGen
umbrella.

If you have research interests in this area we urge you to join the Danzig
mailing list by visiting < http://lyris.jewishgen.org/listmanager >. We
also invite you to visit the website at <
http://www.jewishgen.org/Danzig >. where you will see that contributions
of family histories, memoirs, photographs, maps, and other material of
interest will be welcomed..

Details about SIG projects aimed at making Danzig genealogical resources
more accessible, will be available on the website in the very near
future. Stay tuned!

Our thanks to Logan Joseph Kleinwaks , Coordinator of the SIG and Elsebeth
Paikin, Moderator of the mailing list for taking a leadership role in
proposing and organizing this entire effort to add to the programs and
projects JewishGen provides. .

We hope you are also excited and will join us as we embark on a new era of
Danzig Jewish genealogical research. We also encourage anyone who has
interests in this area and the historical records which will ultimately
reside on JewishGen to volunteer to help with projects. Some projects
may require funding, and we would appreciate your support in the form of
tax-deductible (in the U.S. and Canada) donations via the dedicated
JewishGen-erosity page
