Seeking birth records for 1880s/90s, Biharudvari, Hungary for FRIEDMANN family #hungary

emmabcole@...
 

Hello
I am hunting for records of the family of Izsak and Szidonia Friedmann who lived in Biharudvari, Hungary in the late 1800s, I am trying to locate the birth records for their children (Margit Friedmann; Ferenc Friedmann; Szerén Friedmann; Regine Friedmann; Ernest Friedmann; Irén Friedmann and Kalman Friedmann) so it will help me to work out when they moved to Vienna. I have found Kalman and Ferencz in the civil records in 1897 and 1898 but would like to see the older children too. I would be very grateful if someone could help me to find the synagogue records for Biharudvari for before 1895.            Very many thanks,

Emma    <emmabcole@...>

The question was asked about which name to use when there are more than one.  You can specify as many names as needed on Ancestry.  For Ancestry or Family Tree Maker- 
Just go to Facts - Add - "Name" or "Also Know As", as you prefer.  If Name choose which one is preferred.

Louis,

JGFF towns database are using "modern" i.e. current or native towns names which follows updated USBGN (United States Board of the Geographical Names) system. On the JewishGen Gazetteer click on the town name - the town names that are already recognised by JGFF database have Jewish Gen icon shown at the left of the town's name, as in this sample:

Drogobych, Drogobycz, Drohobycz, Drohobytsch populated place 49°21' N 23°30' E G Ukraine 321.0 miles WSW of Kyyiv 50°26' N 30°31' E

I lean towards the name they last used, typically on their gravestone. I list the others in “Also known as,” or Birth name,” or “Nickname” entries in my Brother’s Keeper software. The online software also have places for aliases.

Thanks for any insight,"


Everybody has this problem, if they have immigrant ancestors. One of my ggrandfathers was born Baruch, in Amsterdam, Barnett in London, and Bernhard in NYC.

 

Any good genealogy program today has Aliases as an option you can use. So this ggrandfather is, in Legacy Family Tree, Bernhard Laguna, with aliases Barnett Lopes de Leaǒ Laguna, and Baruch Lopes de Leaǒ Laguna. Which is the 'primary' name and which is the alias is up to you - you can swap them, so it doesn't matter.

 

Online programs are more difficult. I don't know of any that has aliases, so I use, on Ancestry, "Bernhard Barnett Baruch" and "Lopes de Leaǒ Laguna", as Ancestry will look for all parts of a name.

 

Addionally, for you, you may want to use the proper Polish KAŁMAN, although I don't know if it matters.

Re: Jewish gauchos Argentina #latinamerica

You might try to check the Hamburg passenger list database ("Hamburg Passenger Lists, 1850-1934") on Ancestry.com. If your ancestor left for Argentina on a ship from Hamburg (as one of my great grandmother's cousins did), he may be listed there. Be advised that the name spellings (and town of residence) would use German spelling.

If you are replying to Emily, reply to Emily, not the group. If you look at the bottom of the posting (at least in Yahoo Mail), you see both options. "Reply to sender" and "Reply to group".

Tracking Kielmanowicz Family History from Szczucin, Poland #poland

jliebe97@...
 

Hello,

My name is Jason Lieberman and I am researching my family history. My great grandfather was born in Szczucin, Poland. I am hoping someone can help me verify my information and provide any further information they might have.
 
My great grandfather's name was Henoch/Hanoch Kielmanowicz (although later on he was known as Henri). I am told he was born in 1890 in a town pronounced as "Chechin." I found a record of his birth online on JewishGen where it says the town he was born in was called Szczucin pow. Dabrowa (attached). His father's name was listed as Szymon Kielmanowicz and his mother's name was listed as Riwka Gettinger. I know that record is definitely referring to my great grandfather because I was told his father's name was Simon and his mother's maiden name was Gettinger (although I never knew what her first name was). I was told that Henoch's mother (Riwka) also gave birth to a girl named Myriam. Myriam at some point left to France, and I think was known as Marie and married someone with the last name Guercht. I am told that Simon Kielmanowicz's wife, Riwka Gettinger, passed away at a young age and Simon remarried. I am told that Simon's 2nd wife was Myriam. Myriam had four children (Michael, Anne/Anna, Rose/Sara Rachla, Issac) and then I think she passed away. Simon then married a third wife Jechel and had five more children (Jetta, Giselle, Simcha, Siolek, Esther). I believe most of the family moved to Paris, France and most then moved to the U.S.
 
Would you be able to help me verify my information and provide any further family history information you might have? I also have attached a picture of Simon Kielmanowicz if that helps.
 
Thanks,
Jason

locating original 1848 Hungarian Census Records #hungary

Dear H-Sig,
 
I am searching for the source material for this record.  All the other entries on the page give an LDS Film number, but a few, like these, only say Presov in that column.  I have browsed the Conscriptio Judaerum. 1848 in FamilySearch and the records for Eperjes (Presov) within, but haven’t found this record of my GG grandparents’ household.  Any help locating the original records would be greatly appreciated!

When I was trying to find information regarding my relatives who went through Rivesaltes I found that Eve Blum (eve.line.blum@...) was quite helpful. Obviously her availability, or ability to answer your question, may be impacted by the current situation but it would be worth a try....at least for a start.

 


Re: Looking for Information on Harry FEINGOLD and Bessie WEISS, from Poland to Phoenixville, PA and NYC 1890s #poland #usa

Maria:
I reached out to Congregation Beth Jacob, Phoenixville.  Below are the email responses.  Nothing on Feingolds.  The Weiss family I am familiar with settled in nearby Pottstown (10 miles from Phoenixville) where I grew up.  The Schwartz-Weiss clan (Hungarian Jews) arrived there around 1890.   I have a lot of information about that Weiss family.   By the way, is your cousin related to the Weiss family of Triangle Shoe Company?

Ruth,

 

I cannot remember that name. No Feingolds buried in our cemetery. 

 

There are Weiss family in Pottstown- Sydney & Alvin Weiss. Sydney married Joanie Weiss, who is no longer a member of Shule.   

 

We had a Martin Weiss who was a member of our Shule. They owned a small store next to the Colonial Theater. He passed many years ago. They had a daughter Erica Weiss, who would be in her mid- 80's if she is still alive.

 

I will ask my sister if she remembers the Feingold  family .

Mike and Lee,

 

Larry sent the below email…he’s a fellow Schwenksvillite with deep roots at the Pottstown Synagogue…. 

 

Anyway, do we have Feingolds in Congregation B’nai Jacob History?  I looked through Dan Baer’s stuff that I used for the Centennial book but while I saw references to Weisses in the early history, I didn’t see Feingolds.  But I’m thinking that I hear “Feingold” during Yizkor.  (Pity—I was just at CBJ  for the grocery box delivery today…I would have looked at the memorial plaques had I gotten the below email earlier…)

 

Anyway, if you recognize any of the names, let Larry know.  Thanks.

 

 


Naming a Shtetl in a Family Tree #belarus #general

LouLocc
 

Is there a preferred standard in naming a village (shtetl) in one’s family tree, when the political boundaries of the shtetl have changed?   For example, my grandmother, Sarah Boldo, was born around 1900 in Lybucha, Grodno gubernia, Belarus, which is now Lyubcha, Minsk gubernia, Belarus.   Basically the county the village was in changed borders, from Grodno to Minsk.   I believe if I go back far enough, the village was earlier in Poland.  

 

So my question is whether to enter the village name for her birth in 1900 with today’s political boundaries (i.e. Minsk gubernia) or the political boundaries from when she was born in 1900 (i.e. Grodno gubernia)?

 

Also, in order to see a history of the village, to determine what the political boundaries were at any time in history, is there a book or online resource I could find  this information---perhaps a gazetteer?

 

Thank you,

Louis Loccisano

Regarding my grandmother, she was born around 1901 with name Sarah BOLDO but the surname changed to GOLDBERG  in the USA.   Which surname should I use in my family tree program on Ancestry?  Similarly, my grandfather was born with first name KALMEN but it changed to CARL in the USA.  Which name should I use for him?
Thanks for any insight,

I'm looking for similar information. My family got out of Berlin sometime around 1933/34 and made their way to Rio de Janeiro via Cuba. I haven't been able to find them on any manifests and would be super grateful to anyone who can point me in the direction of where those passenger lists may reside. I have subscriptions to most of the genealogy websites out there.  Thanks so much!

Searching for Teodor BRAUDE born 1909 in Torun, Prussia #poland #warsaw #russia

GEORGE MASON
 

I am looking for information on Teodor BRAUDE. Born 1909 in Torun, Prussia. Mother was Terese Mozeson, Father was Bernhard BRAUDE. Parents married in Warsaw in 1909. Teodor may have been known by the first name of Terry or Teddy. Growing up, he lived in Warsaw with Alexander and Sonia Lorski. He attended Warsaw University around the late 1920's to early 1930's. He was interested in the theater and cinema, He would have been 30 years old in 1939. It is not known if he was married, what work he did, or where he lived in the mid-to-late 1930's. After the Invasion of Poland in 1939, he was reported to have been in Russian-occupied Poland, "acting and directing" in 1940. No further sightings after that. Could he have fled into Russia during the war? Fought in the Russian Army? Survived the War? Did he have children who might still be living? Any assistance would be appreciated.        Thank You,

George Mason,    USA  <gmason3815@...>

I grew up hearing that my maternal grandfather was a gaucho on the Argentine pampas. Though my grandmother's brother did go from Bessarabia to near Mendoza, my grandfather ultimately operated a furniture store in Montevideo, Uruguay!  Look at nearby cities and ports of entry in your search.
