Jewish cemetery Karmacs, Hungary #hungary

Traude Triebel
 

The Austrian Jewish Museum http://www.ojm.at has published on its site all
gravestones >from the almost forgotten little cemetery in Karmacs.
The cemetery was discovered coincidentally in 2007 by a friend of the
museum. All in all, she visited the place ? and took pictures ? five times
until 2018. Unfortunately, biographical data is sparse. However, the museum
wants to make sure that also the names >from this little cemetery will not be
forgotten. Several familiar names are to be found such as Österreicher,
Pollak, Rechnitzer, Fürst, Rosenberg ? There is, for example, the grave of
Ester Rechnitzer, d. 1855, wife of Abraham Rechnitzer who was born in 1780
in Rechnitz in (today?s) Burgenland.

Searching for COHEN of Muizenberg #southafrica

Rosalind
 

I believe I have done all I can online (correct me if I am wrong) to find
sons of Marks Leon COHEN, my great uncle.
Re have found Marks as Mark Leon in Maitland Cemetery 1908. (Moshe Leib)
His widow Esther Dora was found in Muizenberg Cemetery 1927.
Their three daughters all married and moved to Bulawayo.

I have the London JC to thank for a lot of information.

Per 1901 Irish Census the sons were Jacob aged 13 and Solomon aged 12.
Irish births in Cork (where they definitely lived) show Jacob born on 5 Dec
1887 and to the same parents Jacob born on Jan 6 1889.
There are minor doubts but after scouring every Cohen in Ireland I am
satisfied that they are the two boys on the Census.

There might be a Meier, same parents, same maiden name of mother, but in
Belfast. Meier does not appear on the 1901 census.
Strangely someone fitting Meier does indeed appear in a Cape Town
cemetery. Meier ben Moshe Leib Hakohain. Born in 1881 and died3 Sept 1974 at
93 yrs.

I have found a Jacob ben Moshe COHEN, died 1978, aged 80, of Muizenberg,
buried in Pinelands. Grave 15214
I have found a Sophia A bat Yerachmiel COHEN in grave 15213, whom I dare to
assume was his wife. She preceded him in 1971 aged 74 and the tombstones
show this.
Question !
Did anyone know these people ? Or their children? I am not totally convinced
they are the correct relatives.

Question 2
Who is the maven who knew everyone in Muizenberg?

Question 3
I can find only SA Jewish marriages online >from the late 1890s yet I
remember another list possibly of the Great Synagogue online. Can you direct
me to it please.
Question 4.
How do I go about ordering records of deaths, births or marriages in Cape
Town? I have no idea when these b and m events happened.

With many thanks for any help.

Yom Ha'Atzmaut 5778
April 19, 2018

Dear JewishGen Family,

In honor of Yom Ha'Atzmaut, and the 70th birthday of the State of Israel,
here are links to a few articles contained in various Yizkor Books that
JewishGen has translated. They contain first-hand accounts of the dreams,
yearnings, desires, and hardships that people experienced to reach the
land of Israel.

(1) Plonsk, Poland: "My Youth in Plonsk" - by David Ben-Gurion.
https://www.jewishgen.org/Yizkor/plonsk/plo031.html
This article >from the Plonsk, Poland Yizkor Book was written by the first
Prime Minister of Israel, and describes, in great detail, his desire to
embrace the Hebrew language, and to live in Israel >from a young age.

(2) "I Made Aliyah on the Eve of the Holocaust" (scroll down to p. 195) -
by Sarah Yasmin (Schwartzblat).
https://www.jewishgen.org/yizkor/rokitnoye/rok179.html
Anyone who has read the Leon Uris book "Exodus" or seen the movie will
recognize this story written by a former resident of Roktyne (which is
included in the Roktyne, Ukraine Yizkor Book). Sarah writes of the
squalid conditions of the decrepit ships, the fears of people who knew
the chances to reach 'Eretz Yisroel' "were dim" and the British efforts
to turn away refugees.

(3) "In the days of the Second Aliyah" - by Rivka Machneimy (Holodenko).
https://www.jewishgen.org/yizkor/bender/ben081.html
This article (>from the Bender, Moldova Yizkor Book) was written by the
daughter of Baruch Holodenko (a well-known educator, and delegate to the
Zionist Congress), who made Aliyah at the age of 17, and against the
wishes of her father.

4) ">from Divenishok to Eretz-Israel" (scroll down to page 119) - by
Khenye Harari. https://www.jewishgen.org/yizkor/dieveniskes/die087.html
A small article (>from the Divenishok, Lithuania Yizkor Book) which
imparts the joy and anticipation the author felt as she approached Israel.

Wishing you all the best and Chag Sameach,

Phoenix Jewish Genealogy Group May 6th meeting #general

Emily Garber
 

The next meeting of the Phoenix (AZ) Genealogy Group will be held next
Sunday, May 6, starting at 2:00 PM at the Cutler-Plotkin Jewish
Heritage Center, 122 E. Culver St, Phoenix, AZ.

**Please note two changes for this meeting:**
- The start of the meeting is an hour later than usual - at 2 PM
- The location of the meeting is in the cottage at the Cutler-Plotkin Jewish
Heritage Center (AZ Jewish Historical Society campus)

We have made these changes (for this meeting only) to accommodate
those who wish to attend the AZ Jewish Historical Society's Annual
Meeting/Brunch >from 11 AM to 1 PM.

Our speaker will be Ann Marie Williamson, who will present: "Finding
My Father, Finding Myself."

Ann Marie was adopted almost 48 years ago >from a Catholic adoption
agency in Brooklyn, NY. Twenty-four years ago, without the use of DNA,
she found her mother. Unfortunately, her mother gave Ann Marie no
information about her father. With no clues Ann Marie thought she'd
never find him. But recently, after doing DNA testing, she discovered
she is genetically half Ashkenazi Jewish.

Ann Marie will share the ups and downs of her journey and demonstrate
how she used DNA results, along with genealogy research, to trace her
father's family and discover his identity.

I look forward to seeing you next Sunday at 2 PM.
