Hi Ben,

This name originates >from Hebrew Shmariayahu (Polish transcription: Szmarjahu), ie
G-d's protection. JRI-P database lists 821 entries for name Szmerek and few it's

I have posted 5 postings, a total of 7 words, written in old
German (I think) that I need translated. Each of the 5 postings
represents the "status" of individuals found on a property
owners list >from 1854. There were several of these different
labels used to represent different groups e.g. I assume the one
that is the letters "J-u-d" refers to "Jewish" as someone's
tatus or affiliation or rank. I imagine that the other
words/labels refer to Ruthenian-Ukrainians, Poles, Lord of the

Glogow Malopolski #galicia

Susana Leistner Bloch
 

Dear Glogow Malopolski researcher,

If your Glogow entry in the JewishGen Family Finder refers to the
Glogow in what was once Galicia, near Rzeszow, you can now
re-submit your entry. Submit your information with the actual
name of Glogow Malopolski, Poland.

Alexander Sharon, editor of the JewishGen Family Finder, created
a new JGFF town entry for Glogow Malopolski, the Glogow near
Rzeszow in what was once Galicia.

Until this week, entries for the Galician Glogow were mixed in
with entries for the Glogow formerly in Prussia, and all entries
were linked to information for the Glogow near Wroclaw.
Alexander has now linked the Galician Glogow to data pertaining
to it.

Alexander Sharon advises that researchers who submitted surnames
for the Galician Glogow should remove those entries and then
submit them using "Glogow Malopolski".

It would be good if researchers could make this change by 31 May.

Shabat Shalom,
Susana

"kecskemet" is a city in hungary; the person's name was probably originally spelled KECSKEMETI or KECSKEMETY (meaning ">from kecskemet"), but many hungarian spellings were changed in the united states, since the locals could neither pronounce nor spell them correctly. but at least it's a bit of a start.

None of this has produced anything even vaguely likely; Nor does the

My father is dead , and this is what the person to whom he told the

Any suggestion for how to look further?

Birth records from Bratislava, Slovakia and Kapolcs, Hungary #hungary

Anne Buchanan
 

Hi. I'm new to H-Sig and would appreciate advice/suggestions about
undertaking research in Slovakia and Hungary, in particular where birth
records might be obtained.

Bratislava:
I'm trying to obtain the birth record for my grandmother Ernestine
BUCHWALD (born BERGER) born Bratislava 8 Jan 1884 died Wien 27 Jan
1957. She was the daughter of Adolf BERGER (born about 1848, died Wien
Aug 1911) and Fanny (POLLAK) (born about 1851 died Wien Nov 1918). I'm
not sure whether my great grandparents were also born in Bratislava. Is
it still the case that I should write to the Slovak Archives to obtain
records?

I'm also planning a trip to Vienna to do some research and am wondering
if it might also be worthwhile to visit the archives in Bratislava?

Hungary:
I'd like to obtain my great grandfather's birth record and try and trace
other family members which means looking for records >from the first half
of the 19th century. My great grandfather was Moritz BUCHWALD (born
about 1842 Kapolcs, Hungary, died 20 Jul 1912, Wien). Kapolcs is a
small town between Veszprem and Sumeg (formerly in Zala county, now in
Veszprem county). Some of the records for Kapolcs have been filmed by
the LDS, but I could only find 1867-1895. In the All Hungary database I
did find a possible record for Moritz and his family >from the 1848
Hungarian census and am wondering whether other records might exist for
this town for the period about 1800 to 1850 and where they might be held?

Any help would be appreciated.
