Re: civil registration records for Fulek/Filakovo and Aszod #hungary #slovakia


Fülek (Fiľakovo): civil registrations for places now in Slovakia are only accessible in the relevant regional archive in Slovakia. They are not online anywhere, because they have never been filmed or digitized.

Aszód: civil registrations for places in Pest county are only accessible in the Pest county archive in Budapest. They are not online anywhere, because Pest county did not participate in the records-preservation contract with the Mormons.

Diabetes and antisemitism around 1900: cultural history #education

Alberto Guido Chester

Dear Genners
I am sharing a link to an article I have found interesting on Judaism and diabetes in the beginnings of XX th Century.
I understand it is appropriate to this list in that provides a background of cultural history.
Let me suggest to NOT post personal stories on the list, for this is just general history.
I have no relation to the author or magazine.

Re: Probate in Oklahoma? #usa #records

EdrieAnne Broughton

Probate in Oklahoma occurs at the county level, the county that the deceased owned real property or mineral rights.  I've gone through this process for G-grandfather (died in Oklahoma 1940), Grandfather who died in 1969 in Arizona and my parents who died in California 1986 and 1998.  I might be able to help you understand the rules.

Re: Question re: unfamiliar family names and dead end research #general #names


I was able to ascertain the names of great-grandparents who did not emigrate to the USA through the marriage certificates of my grandparents.  Naturalization papers and birth certificates will also give hints. In some cases, you may not be able to ascertain whether people are related, at least for now.  That is the case for me in my Slonimsky line.

Just for fun I plugged "Parkan" into Google Translate. I did a reverse lookup and it told me that паркан (parkan) is  Ukrainian for fence.

Re. David Maggid, "Toledot Mishpechoth Gintzburg,", St. Petersburg, 1899, although there may well be Hebrew phrases mixed in, the copy I have appears to be written in Yiddish.

I too would be very interested to hear of any 'family trees' issued from the information in Maggid's book...

The only one I've come across so far (by David Kaufmann 1898) concerns a single branch: the Öttingen - Ries(s) - Wiener family who are the descendants of Bunlin aka Bona, Bunla, daughter of Simon \ Schimon \ "Seligman" Ulmo - Günzburg:

Dear Joseph,
I have no time for a detailed translation but the essence is that after different court cases in two courts the marriage ended with a divorce on 21 Febr. 1903.

Re: Data Breach at GEDmatch has Concerns Over Privacy #dna #announcements

Chuck Weinstein

As far as the known facts are concerned, someone hacked into GEDMatches database and changed everyone's privacy settings to public.  A number of unknown matches were injected into the systerm.  It might have been from law enforcement or from somewhere else, but either way, it caused the entire database to be available to anyone who wanted to see it for any reason.  Why, who knows?  We have no idea at this juncture what else may have been compromised, including names, email addresses, etc.

Jeffrey, you made a number of claims without evidence.  I only asked you to cite what has actually happened so we can assess for ourselves the probability and harm of such breaches.  I want to keep this real, not theoretical.  I never said I denied any danger exists as is clear from my posting.

Robert, I think the main differences among organizations is how they raise capital, start-up and ongoing, who takes the risk, and how they distribute profits.  Nonetheless, all organizations have to produce some good to some one to justify their continuance.
