I can't begin to thank all the wonderful folks who replied to my quest on

Again, thank you so much and wishing good luck to all of us on our searches.

Thanks again for your kindness and help,

Transylvania Additions to Hungarian Database #hungary

Vivian Kahn
 

Kudos to Hungarian SIG Vital Records Coordinator Sarah Feuerstein and all the transcribers and donors who are responsible
for the latest addition to the JewishGen Hungary database. The Hungary database continues to grow but we can't do this
without your support and contributions. We need your donations in order to purchase images. But If you are not able to make a financial
contribution you can still help by spending a few hours a week transcribing records. Knowledge of Hungarian is not necessary and we
have experienced transcribers available to help out.

With your help, H-SIG will continue to be able to find, obtain, and transcribe records that have not been filmed by Family Search are not available anywhere
on the internet other than JewishGen. To make a contribution, please go to the Hungarian SIG JewishGen-erosity page at
http://www.jewishgen.org/JewishGen-erosity/v_projectslist.asp?project_cat=15 To volunteer please contact Sarah Feuerstein at ethnoca@yeahoo.ca

Thank you very much for your help! Nagyon szepen koszonom a segetset!

I am happy to announce that after a few setbacks the Szatmar Project Phase 1 material (mostly Szatmarnemeti
proper) is finally up in the JewishGen databases. It was a large project that took close to two years to transcribe.
Szatmar Phase 2 is in the process of being worked on right now, it is a collection of smaller, harder to handle
registers and loose leaf documents >from the rest of Szatmar county. Besides the above, we added now the
following places into the databases: Abauj-Szanto (BMD), Gonc, Abauj county (BM, D is to follow in the next l
oad), Avasfelsofalu, Szatmar county (BMD) and Deva, Hunyad county (BD). Altogether some 25,000 entries.
This time our special thanks for her contributions goes to our youngest transcriber, Dena Whitman, who sharpened
her skills to the point that she is now officially the fastest and most prolific in our group. Actually she is helping
out at the Maramaros project right now, which should also be nearing its completion soon. Thank you Dena! :)

Before signing off I must emphasize our repeated call for additional transcribers, or donations either in the form
of new material or monetary help of any size. Every bit counts..!

Information in JewishGen Hungarian records from Szatmar #hungary

misokol@...
 

After reading the notice about new records >from Szatmar on JewishGen, I
logged in to once again search for family records. This time I was
successful.

My grandmother was born Mariska Friedman, daughter of Ignacz (Abraham
Yizchak) Friedman and Roza Schwarcz (spelled at times Ignatz or Schwartz)
and she had many siblings, none of whom were previously found in searching
Hungarian records.

As of this update, I now have found seven siblings, five of whom I knew
about, and two who are new to me. The records do not go back to 1895 when
my grandmother was born, or she may not have been registered. I can
confirm other based upon my mother's written recollections about some of
information in the records. The sandek for my great uncle Hermann being a
Simon (Shimon) Schwarcz, a name I know to be the uncle of my grandmother.
His occupation as merchant was known to me. What I now know is that my
great grandmother, Roza probably came >from Szarazberek and Schwartz names
are found there (and I am making some conclusions about their relevance.)
However, my grandmother's cousin with who she traveled to the US in 1913
was Klari Lazar >from Szarasberek as noted on her immigration manifest at
Ellis Island. Lazar is married name so she may have been a Schwartz.

So now I am looking for information on Schwartz >from Szarasberek..
Shimon was a well to do (cattle dealer ??) merchant. Klari Lazar married
Antal Lazar and had several children in Hungary before moving to US. Her
1913 travel was a visit back home and my grandmother returned and lived with
her family in Brooklyn after that.

New Krakow WWII (under occupation) & Rudawka Maps in Gesher Galicia's Cadastral Map Room #galicia

Pamela Weisberger
 

Announcing three recent additions to the Gesher Galicia Cadastral Map
Room:

Krakow Street Map Under Occupation ca. 1941

http://maps.geshergalicia.org/special/krakow-occupation-nd/

This important map showing Krakow (Cracow, Krakau) under German
occupation during WWII was provided to Gesher Galicia by the Jewish
Historical Institute of Warsaw, Poland. Four zones are highlighted by
hand, including the town center ('mixed/business district', A),
initial German residential area (B), extended German residential area
(C), and the ghetto ('Jewish residential', D). Streets are labeled with
their Polish names, but some are Germanized. The Kazimierz district,
two Jewish cemeteries and key churches are indicated, but not
synagogues.

There are also two cadastral maps for two different towns named
Rudawka: one in Poland, the other about 40 kilometers NNW, across the
border in Ukraine.

Rudawka Village Cadastral Map 1852 (Gmina Bircza)

http://maps.geshergalicia.org/cadastral/rudawka-1852/

This is a selectively-colored cadastral map of the village of Rudawka
(now in the Gmina Bircza of Poland), surveyed 1852 and lithographed
1854. The map shows no village center or masonry buildings, but
includes a modest estate and two small Catholic chapels.

Rudawka Village Cadastral Map 1853 (Stary Sambor Raion)

http://maps.geshergalicia.org/cadastral/rudawka-rudavka-1853/

A complete, selectively-colored cadastral map of the village of Rudawka
(Rudavka,) now a defunct settlement in the Stary Sambor Raion of
Ukraine, surveyed 1853 and lithographed 1854. Covering a large but
sparsely populated village straddling the Rudawka River with two other
rivers flowing in, the map shows no village center or masonry buildings,
and only a tiny Catholic church.

(Note to researchers: there are several other formerly Galician towns
with the name of, or beginning with, Rudawka. Knowing the coordinates
of "your" towns are key when names are so similar.)
