Where is the 1869 Hungarian Census #hungary

Amos Israel Zezmer
 

Dear fellow researchers,

A recent find on JG's Hungary Database turned up the following
information of interest to me in the 1869 Hungarian Census:

Moritz BLEIER (1816, Rakido) and Kati TOBIAS (1816, Rakido), living in
the town of Humene, in the jaras of Homonna, in the county of Zemplen,
family number 248/2, LDS microfilm number 722707.

I located microfilm number 722707 on Family Search and it is online. I
accessed the microfilm and found the listing for Zemplen. Clicking that,
I found links to 60 towns, but not to Humenne.

Can someone direct me to the correct link, as I am sure something got
lost on the way? My BLEIER family should be on that microfilm, unless
the microfilm number is incorrect.

The town of Rakido is not found on RadixIndex, so I am not sure if
Rakido is the correct spelling of my ancestors' town of birth or there
was a transcription error.

Any help will be greatly appreciated.

Best regards,

Amos ZEZMER

SARAH BAUERNFREUND death certificate/gravestone in Zborov #hungary

Daniella Lejtman
 

Hi Fellow JewishGenners,

I am doing family research and am looking for the gravestone and/or
the death certificate for SARAH BAUERNFREUND and to find out where she
might be buried.

She was a resident of Zborov, which is currently in Slovakia (then,
Czechoslovakia). >from my research on the JOWBR cemetery database, the
gravestones that were photographed are mostly >from the 1800s and don't
go past 1915. She died between 1936 and 1938 and most definitely of
natural causes.

Is there any way to get official death certificates >from Slovakian
records? Or is there someone who has been to the Zborov and knows of
possibly another cemetery?

Thank you very much,
Daniella Lejtman

Re: Sources for district XIII in Budapest, 1895-1925 #hungary

You're in luck, I was just over there and know the area. Vaci Utca is a long street, now a popular shopping/tourist area on the Pest side, the southern part of it is in Section VIII and the upper part of it in VI. The nearest synagogue is Dohany St. - Dohåny utca 2, 1074 Budapest Hungary (utca means street and isn't capitalised if you're writing them, said 'oot-sa'), the phone is +36 1 343 0420 but I would suggest you contact the Family Research Centre next door, part of the synagogue/memorial museum there. I'm trying to attach this in English but if it opens in Hungarian, try opening it through Google and have it translated there http://www.milev.hu/csalaacutedkutatoacute-koumlzpont.html. If it's still gibberish, email family@milev.hu and give them the details of your basic search. They're really lovely there if you get a chance to go do research in person, and definitely take the synagogue tour, the tour guides are fabulous.

I recently discovered that a branch of my FRIEDMAN family >from Ugocsa
megye migrated to Budapest. Specifically, >from a family letter dated
1913, I have an address for Adolf Friedman at 68 Vaci Ut. He had a
grocery store at this address and lived there as well. He and his
wife had five children, and he also had two children >from his first
wife. Except for Adolf, I know no names. Based on the letter, my
guess is that the younger children were born around 1895-1905.

It seems that 68 Vaci Ut is in District XIII. On FamilySearch, the
only civil records for this district are deaths and marriages from
1938 onwards. I would be grateful for pointers to sources (civil
records, business directories, anything) for District XIII for
1895-1925.

Hi Marty,

If you search ItalianGen using a wild card search and keying M*STER
you will find the index record as Mefster Anna 68y Dec 26, 1932 24925 Kings

I am looking for the death record of Anna MEISTER, wife of Abraham
MEISTER and daughter of Isaac Abramowitz and his wife Pessa.

I found her (on familysearch) as having died December 26, 1932 in Kings
County, NY but I cannot find any confirmation or even a trace on
ItalianGen.org, Ancestry or any of the grave databases.

How should I interpret this? If necessary, I can shlep into NYC and look at
microfilm #2070587 but I'm wondering if anyone has any other suggestion/path
to try tracking down her grave.

Dear Cousins,

Mary Meyers is looking for the death record of Anna MEISTER. He has the date
as December 26, 1932 and location of death as Kings County >from Family Search,
but can't find her on italiangen.org or other databases.

She is in the italiangen.org database as 'Anna Mefster." I found her by doing
a wild card search with the last name M*R and using A for the first initial.
The certificate number is 24925, and the date and location match.

Regards,

Ira

Marty Meyers asked about locating a death record for Anna Meister (died 26 Dec
1931 in Brooklyn, NY) and mused about checking FamilySearch microfilm.

Be advised of two things: one may still certainly go to a Family History Center
or affiliate and check microfilm (if they decided to keep their film rolls on
long-term loan), but one may no longer borrow rolls >from the Family History
Library in Salt Lake City (due to issues with availability of microfilm and
maintenance microfilm readers they have stopped lending as of last week).

Never fear, however! It turns out that the BMD certificates for New York City
have been digitized by FamilySearch and are available to be viewed via
computers at Family History Centers or Libraries. They may also be available
at affiliate libraries and centers.

For Anna Meister's death certificate, go to the catalogue on FamilySearch:
https://www.familysearch.org/catalog/search
Enter Brooklyn for the place and then click on the appropriate Brooklyn (United
States, New York, Kings, Brooklyn). Click Search. A list of items in their
catalogue for this location will be displayed. Scroll to the bottom of the page
and select vital records, then "Brooklyn, death certificates, 1919-1949"
<https://www.familysearch.org/search/catalog/758153?availability=Family%20History%20Library >
[Shortened URL: https://goo.gl/L41RFe ]

The microfilm roll (2,070,587) of interest includes a camera icon (all in this
collection do). That means the certificates have been digitized.

Find a Family History Center near your home and make sure to take a thumb drive
with you so you may download the digitized image.

I have visited a small Family History Center near my home twice in the last
couple of weeks to acquire birth, marriage and death certs. This easy access
has substantially changed my research process!

Dear Bessarabers, all genealogical researchers,

I like very much working with all of you for many years. Imagine, our SIG is 6 years old! We did with you many great projects and continue to do. I want to thank all volunteers who spend their time for the sake of our group.

Here are several our volunteers on the Wall of Honor: https://www.jewishgen.org/Bessarabia/DCA_WallOfHonor.asp, but we have many many more people who help us, and I want to thank them all... they all be at our Wall of Honor.

I also want to thank everyone who support our group with donations and we can run our projects: getting set of records >from Archives, photographing tombstones on many cemeteries in the region, inviting people to the conference to share their knowledge with the group and more.

Shana Tova v'Metuka to all of you!
