Topic: How to Locate Individuals through Genealogy



Fred started his attorney service company, B&R Services for Professionals in 1968. In 1988 he obtained his Private Detective license.

 In 1998 he became interested in his family history. He studied genealogy and was able to locate his ancestors dating back to 1810.

To date he has identified 1200 family members. With the knowledge he obtained, in 2005 he decided to volunteer for the IRC Holocaust

Tracing Service, to reconnect Jewish, Polish and Ukrainian Holocaust survivors. In 2006 he was awarded the local and national "Volunteer of the Year" Award from the IRC.

Fred will teach us some techniques he uses to locate individuals through genealogy. This information will enable researchers to not only locate family,

uncover distant relatives, assist in searching for heirs, as well as locating missing relatives.

Mentors will also be available from 1:00 PM until the start of the meeting to help with your research efforts.

JGASGP website http://www.jgsgp.org is now available with latest news and upcoming meeting notices,

and links to Philadelphia resources.

We can also be found on Facebook.

Member are welcome without charge

Guest fee of $5 can be applied toward membership

BIRTH CERTIFICATE TRANSLATION from HUNGARIAN & CZECH to ENGLISH

Eva Blanket
 



I would like to request an ENGLISH TRANSLATION of the following BIRTH CERTIFICATE (which is in part HUNGARIAN & an Addendum in CZECH)…. 

for the CHILD of Haim Hersch VEISZ and his wife Feige NEUMAN VEISZ.

The majority of the text is in Hungarian however, there is some Czech as well. I would like this to be translated in its entirety as I can figure out some of the Hungarian but I'm confused especially as to the name of the child as well as the additional notes. Also could you please advise as to which person came to the Registry to give the Notice.
The birth took place in the contiguous towns of Zugo & Talamas, in the county of Sub-Carpathia, Hungary which later became a part of Czechoslovakia.
It is on ViewMate at the following address

Re: GERNSHEIM - is the name extinct?

David Lewin
 

Thank you Izzy for so much interest and help !

I had meant my initial question to be answered, and you are, in a way, confirming my thoughts.   You have found ONE individual in the world who still carries the name. Beck-Gernsheim  has retired from her university.   There has been no response from her personal email address ( at least not so far ) not a single individual responded saying they have GERNSHEIM research in their data.   I would ay here that, sadly,  my proposition is carried.  the name GERNSHEIM  IS EXTINCT.   The Nazis have succeeded in this case.  May that line rest in peace?

TRANSLATION REQUIRED from CZECH to English

Eva Blanket
 

I request a translation of the Czech text on the BIRTH INDEX of Sheindl WEISZ….Record # 136 at the bottom of the file VIEWMATE ID: 76645.

It is on ViewMate at the following address
http://www.jewishgen.org/viewmate/viewmateview.asp?key=VM76645

I think SHEINDL might have actually been born in 1870 but it seems to be only recorded in 1930 in Hukliva, Sub-Carpathia (Hungary and Czechoslovakia).

I'm confused about this record as it really doesn't seem to be a usual type of BIRTH INDEX as seen from the others in this example.

Could this be totally translated word for word from Czech to English for me as I don't read or understand any Czech.?
The other names I recognise are Sruel Bera WEISZ, Ruchle Lei nee GOTTESMANOVA. Could you please let me know their relationship to Seindl WEISOVA as well?

Please respond using the online ViewMate form.

Many thanks for your kind assistance.

Yes, they are family.  Even though they died at birth they are still relatives.
