Excellent book about Hungary/WWII for teens and adults #hungary #holocaust

sjgwed@...
 

There is a very good book, YOUNG PEOPLE SPEAK - SURVIVING THE HOLOCAUST IN HUNGARY, edit by Andrew Handler & Susan V. Meschel, 1993 Franklin Watts publ, which contains adults' recollections about their experiences as children. (I found this book in my public library, and subsequently purchased a copy because it contained so much info about Budapest in 1944, which I wrote about, subsequently, in my memoir, BECAUSE OF EVA.) One writer, Peter Bartas (deceased now) wrote "The Brickyard." and described how he was taken to it, north of the city, and how he escaped.
 
He also referred to "Eva the Swede," the nickname given to my late cousin, who in 1944 used her protection under Swedish security to help and save others.
 
Good luck!

Not following this thread previously, but guessing you'd need it certified if it was for a passport application?

Several months ago I corresponded with someone regarding
identification of a picture of Rabbi Jacob DOLGINOS (I believe). I
lost the picture, and also the name of the correspondent and have now
found the picture. Would the person contact me again and I will send
him the picture.

Re: Good New Tool: Thru Lines on Ancestry #general #announcements #dna #education

I have a similarly frustrating problem with this new "tool". Thru Lines identifies my aunt's granddaughter as my aunt! The granddaughter has the correct relationship in her tree so the blame for this error obviously lies with Ancestry!

Re: Hungarian to English #translation

Klára Majoros
 

Dear Alex and Evrybody,

Agylob and agyhártyalob (agyhártyagyulladás) are two different things.

Agylob refers to the content material of the brain, the cerebrum.
Its inflamation is encephalitis as in a contemporary Hungariam medical dictionary also states:
https://library.hungaricana.hu/en/view/KlasszikusOrvosiKonyvek_017/?pg=95&layout=s&query=agylob

Agyhártyalob (agyhártyagyulladás) is the inflamation of the meninges, the illness is called  meningitis. Example from the same medical dictionary.
https://library.hungaricana.hu/en/view/KlasszikusOrvosiKonyvek_017/?pg=170&layout=s&query=meningitis

Re: Good New Tool: Thru Lines on Ancestry #general #announcements #dna #education

Ellen
 

I set up Thru Lines on Ancestry awhile back, but I must say I've been disappointed, as it has errors that apparently can't be corrected.

For example:  Thru Lines identifies my grandmother's paternal aunt as potentially my grandmother's maternal grandmother.  The error results in Thru Lines misidentifying subsequent ancestors.
The FAQs for Thru Lines state: "If a potential ancestor does not support what you know about your family's history, you may contact the family tree owner associated with that person to correct any errors or make changes." 


But the family tree owner doesn't even have my grandmother listed in her tree; there's nothing there to correct.  Moreover, the error is not based on a DNA match (although I DO match a descendant of my grandmother's paternal aunt... which isn't even reflected here!).  I wish there was a way I could click "Ignore" as I do with some of the hints Ancestry provides for people in my family tree.

I would like to learn how to play an instrument my ancestors played and wanted suggestions.   I have been considering the saz or lute.  Please share your suggestions and what folks in Bodrum Turkey and the Island of Rhodes would have played -- this is where my grandparents were from -- My grandmother Sara Beton from Rhodes and my Grandfather Abraham Romano from Bodrum..

Who was the sister who left for London (I assume England)?

If she married there her marriage cert. should give her father's name (or a variant thereof!).

Likewise the one who went to the U.S., although there you should get the mother's name also.

I find duplicated efforts a waste of time.  Most likely you will have several responses and be sorted.

If this does NOT happen, let me know and I will gladly help
