Mysterious collection of online records for Trebitsch #austria-czech

Michael Gordy
 

On badatelna, the scanned registers for Trebitsch (Trebic) include
volume 2173 of early births, marriages and deaths. Near the end of
the volume is an unlabeled collection of folios that might (I'm only
guessing here) represent transfers of Familianten permissions. Does
anyone with knowledge of the families of Trebitsch have an opinion on
how to interpret?

The collection spans many pages starting here:
http://www.badatelna.eu/fond/1073/reprodukce/?zaznamId=2860&reproId=46557
The later pages in this collection contain more detail.

Re: Hand sign? Lviv, 1920

Hello Jeff,

this is not „intentional“ with a special meaning but the woman most probably took the photograph by herself – with assistance of a pneumatic (?) shutter release (remote). I believe I can see a cable.

Kind regards from Germany

Re: help with Budapest addresses

evakweiss .
 

The deportations from the districts surrounding Budapest (these districts today are part of the city - in 1944 - they were considered "outside").  My paternal grandparents were taken from the brick factory in Kispest and my mother's family was taken from the brick factory in Ujpest. Depending on where they were located would determine which one they were taken to by the gendarmes.   My mother explained the night before they were taken from there homes, the gendarmes came and stood guard before the door so that the family wouldn't be able to flee. 

My paternal grandmother's maiden name was Weisz.  Eugenia Weisz.

Thanks, Eva Weiss

Reclaim The Records wins and publishes the Nebraska Death Index, 1905-1968

Asparagirl
 

Greetings from Reclaim The Records! We're your favorite little non-profit organization that picks fights with government agencies, archives, and libraries for better public access to genealogical records and historical materials. And we're back today to announce that we recently won and just released more free records, this time from the Midwest.

Introducing the first-ever publication of the Nebraska Death Index, now online for free public use at the artfully-named NebraskaDeathIndex.com!

This is the first time that this data has been available to the public anywhere, in any format. Nebraska death certificates are open to the public after fifty years, but highly restricted for more recent years. Weirdly, the state of Nebraska only seems to issue certified copies, not uncertified/informational/genealogy copies, no matter how old the certificate is.

The 1956-1968 portion of the death index is in a text database format, freely searchable online (including soundalike names and wildcard searches), and you can even download the underlying CSV file if you really want. The 1904-1955 portion of the index was printed in eleven oversized books, which we paid the state of Nebraska to scan for us. Those books had all the years combined together, not separated out by year. Instead, the data is sorted by the Soundex code of the surname, and then alphabetically by given name within each Soundex code. So we added a javascript Soundex code look-up to the NebraskaDeathIndex.com website to help you figure out what book to check.

(Shout-out to Moishe Miller, current president of the JGS of Brooklyn, who built a web page all about Soundex back in the year 2000 which is amazingly still online, which included a javascript implementation of the Soundex algorithm, which we partially repurposed for our website!)

For more information about how we fought the state to get the data released, please read our latest newsletter, which has all the details, as well as links to the actual records request we made, the initial denial of our request, the Nebraska Attorney General's Office overruling the denial, and the eventual capitulation of the Nebraska Department of Health and Human Services:


And should you feel like making an end-of-the-year donation to Reclaim the Records (a 501c3 non-profit), we would gratefully accept chocolate gelt, or even the real thing. ;-)

Happy Hanukkah, and happy searching!

help with Budapest addresses

Paula & David
 

A cousin lived in Budapest before the war, and her husband , Imre Strasser, had a good sized children clothing manufacturing business there, employing more than 60 people she said. I am wondering if there might be any online business or residence directories from the early 1940’s or late 1930’s that would allow me to learn the address of this business and also where they lived in the city?

Also, she spoke of being taken by the Nazis to a brick factory on the edge of town from where most people were sent to the death camps. Does anyone know the name of this place and if it still exists?

Thanks, Paula Solomon

Boris, if you go to the top right of the page, you should be able to click on "Account," and from there, select "Identity" from the list on the left.  You should be able to change the name and e-mail associated with your account there, if I'm understanding your problem correctly.


Missing siblings

Carol
 

Hello,
This request is something of a long shot, but maybe it will ring a bell.  There is a 1907 arrival of Kreine Berkovsky from Novogrudok, Belarus.  She is going to her brother, listed in two places as Wolf and Velvel.  i have a very large Berkovsky family from this town, notably from the shtetl of Belarus, and I am always trying to figure out who might be related to them.  But in this case, I absolutely know that Kreine was a relative, becaus that is MY name, and the name of my grandmother's sister, and the name of someone earlier in the line.  It's not that common a name.  In our family, it became Kate and then Carol.  Wolf is usually William, but not always.

Meanwhile, my Berkovsky became Brown.  But I personally know other Berkovskys who became Berg, Beckwith, Berkoff, ,Bennett. 

I am just dying to find these siblings.  I've looked through various NYC relatives in records where I can find a town (e.g., WWI) but can't find them.  Here's hoping that someone reading this is descended from this pair.

Sincerely,
Carol Isenberg Clingan
