hebrew translation of gravestones #hungary

arnold friedman
 

hi,

appreciate someone's help. i have six gravestone pictures, and have
rough translations of those. I would appreciate if there was someone
who was willing to review the gravestone pictures and rough
translations to correct them. i would like the wording correct, but
more importantly want to be sure i get all the genealogy information,
like fathers name etc, correct.

i would send them to the h-sig, but it does not allow photo attachments..

thank you

JewishGen is pleased to announce our newly designed website at
www.JewishGen.org. We commissioned the creation of a new landing page
to serve as a launching point for the main components of the website.
The site is built on a modern, secure platform, which is beneficial
for a number of reasons, including:

*It has a more intuitive and user-friendly design,
*It is mobile-responsive, and
*It has a more familiar platform, which will make it easier for us to
find qualified consultants, contractors and volunteers to help us in
the future.

This is not the final plan. It's a stop-gap redesign that addresses
some of the shortcomings of our website by creating a visually
appealing, mobile-friendly, and easy to navigate homepage that
researchers can utilize to find key components on the JewishGen site.
While we attracted approximately one million unique visitors to the
JewishGen site last year, only a small portion of this group actually
registered or became regular users. We anticipate that an enhanced
website will improve these results.

Specifically, we hope the new landing page will help guide researchers to:

*Search the online collection
*Locate ancestral communities
*Explore life in their ancestral communities
*Join our discussion groups
*Volunteer, and
*Donate.

Over the next two months, we will begin crafting a proper technology
strategy, which will include our website and databases. In the
meantime, however, this new landing page will immediately help
researchers, while also demonstrating JewishGen's strategic focus.

Thank you to everyone on our staff and volunteer leadership team for
their suggestions and contributions to making this happen. Special
thanks to Scott Seidenstock, Gary Sandler, and Warren Blatt.

suggestions will be most welcome!

Searching LDS records #hungary

Amit N
 

Hello,

I believe I have found a record on an LDS film that might be of
interest to me. I think I have located the right film on
FamilySearch.org. My question is, how do I find the exact record among
the 485 photos in there? Is there a clue or should I just search one
by one?

Thank you,
Amit Naor

Re: Mateszalka #hungary

HungarianRoots
 

Jewish vital records for Mateszalka have been indexed by JewishGen (before
Oct 1895)
Civil vital records are partially available at familysearch.org website and=

at the town hall in Mateszalka up to this day.
I have made two visit to Mateszalka recently and the cemetery is also in
good shape. The local caretaker, who is 89, lives next door.

There are no burial records - most cemeteries have no such records any more=
=2E
However, since it is in a good shape, one would be able to find stones
pretty easily.

(The town also has a synagogue which is being restored and has the very
first house with electricity in Hungary (1882, The Schwartz family home)).

We could give you guidance if you shared what you know so far and what you
are looking for.

Re: Testing the #Hashtags Function

Jan Fine
 

Hashtags apply to social media postings and make subjects searchable. This is something I work with a whole lot, but haven't done much with it genealogy-wise.  Will take a look on the jewishgen link and see...

So far I a finding this beta a bit awkward.

thank you for help on Franci's War #austria-czech

Helen Epstein
 

Thank you Martha Flatto and others. I have been informed of not one
but three unexpected discoveries regarding dates and names in my
mother's memoir Franci's War:
Prague-Terezin-Auschwitz-Hamburg-Belsen-Prague 1939-1945. The 30,000
members of the FB Group Jewish Genealogy Portal were unbelievably
helpful.

They found Coonel Margaret Emmeline Montgomery, the British Red Cross
office who beriended her at liberation. She turns up in three other
survivor memoirs and was a sister-in-law of Field Marshal Bernard
Montgomery.

They found the birth and death dates of her friend Margot Stern
Koerbel (1907-1978)

Most movingly they found the records of Gisa Kaufmannova, the little
girl my mother adopted in Terezin who was murdered in Auschwitz. Her
relatives in Israel were amazed to find out that someone remembered
her.

The book will be out in the US in February 2020 and in Czech and
Slovak in May 2020.

Thanks again.
