on ending threads #hungary

Cnydorf@...
 

Dear VK
It takes time to do the kind of thorough checking necessary to give
reliable answers to some questions (e. g. the frequency of 'Maria' or whether
it was ever perceived as a 'non-Jewish' name). Ending the thread so quickly
makes that impossible.

Regards,

Charles Nydorf

Moderator VK: New information on any topic relevant to Hungarian Jewish genealogy is always welcome. The intent of my message was to let folks know that it's not necessary to send any more messages confirming that Maria is a name given to Hungarian Jewish women or that women named Maria are likely to have the Hebrew name of Mirian.

Inscription of Town name #hungary

Bernard Weill
 

Dear Colleagues,

Would appreciate if someone can give me the exact
spelling in Hebrew of the town Topolcany located in
Slovakia. I am not interested in how it "should" be
spelled so much as how it is actually spelled based on
this town name appearing on tombstones, Hebrew books,
Ketuboth,etc. Thanking you in advance for your
assistance.

IAJGS Conference Update #hungary

Vivian Kahn
 

Dear Friends,

If you haven't yet decided whether to attend the 23rd IAJGS
International Conference on Jewish Genealogy, take another look at the
schedule to see the variety of sessions that will focus on topics of
interest to H-SIG members. In addition to our own Henry Wellisch, who
will be speaking on Conventional and Unconventional Sources for
Austria-Hungary research, speakers include Kinga Frojimovics on
Hungarian Jewish Naming Customs; Marsha Rozenblit on
the Jews of Austria-Hungary, 1867-1918; Alexander Dunai on researching
roots in the Transcarpathian Region of Ukraine; and Ladislau Gyemant
on 20th century Jewish Family History Research in Romania. Check the
updated Day Planner at the conference website
http://www.jewishgen.org/dc2003/ for more details. You can view the
schedule online and/or download a version readable in Word. For the
first time this includes the room names where the presentations/events
will be held.

H-SIG will hold its annual business meeting on Tuesday, July 22, >from
3:30 to 4:45 pm. Come and hear about H-SIG projects and give us your
ideas about what you would like to see H-SIG do in the coming year.
(As always, be prepared to donate your time and resources to the
projects that you consider important!) H-SIG members will have an
opportunity to shmooze more informally at our luncheon on Thursday,
July 24 in the Cannon Room. Peter Lande of the US Holocaust Memorial
Museum will be our lunch speaker offering tips on researching the
holocaust in Hungary.

Pamela Weisberger is coordinating the H-SIG table at the SIG fair
being held on Tuesday and Thursday morning. Contact Pamela at
weisberger@hotmail.com to volunteer. Even if you can't join us in
Washington, we'd be interested in hearing your ideas about the
resources and displays we should offer to let folks know about H-SIG.

Conference organizers are again presenting a film festival on Tuesday,
July 22nd, featuring the films of Yale Strom, noted director, author,
and musician. Among the films to be presented are L'Chayim, Comrade
Stalin; The Last Klezmer; Carpati: 50 Miles, 50 Years; and his newest,
Klezmer on Fish Street. Yale will be available to introduce his films
and sign copies of his new volume, The Book of Klezmer." Additional
screenings may be scheduled. If you haven't seen The Last Klezmer, a
poignant story about the remnants of the Jewish community in Beregszasz
(now Berechove, Ukr.), don't miss this opportunity!

Dr. Martin Stiglio, director of the Istituto Italiano di Cultura, will
be introducing The Righteous Enemy, the first filmed account of the
Italian resistance to the 'Final Solution.' And local filmmaker Esther
McBride and staff >from the Jewish Historical Society of Greater
Washington will present a series of short films about Jewish life in
Washington.

For those of you who have read the rave reviews of tne new Anne Frank
exhibit at the United States Holocaust Memorial Museum
(http://ushmm.org/museum/exhibit/index.utp?content=exhibit/
right.htm%23anne), you will have exclusive access to this exhibit
during the private tour/reception on Monday night at the conference.
Tickets are only $10 and can be ordered during registration. Otherwise,
you will need timed tickets in conjunction with the two free museum
ducats (given to every registrant), for use outside of the private
reception.

The Library of Congress staff are finalizing their schedule of
introductions (exclusive to conference participants) to various Reading
Rooms. While the time/dates have not been finalized, details will
appear in the next version of the day planner. The following Reading
Rooms will offer these on-site sessions: Newspapers and Current
Periodicals, European, Local History and Genealogy, Maps, and Hebraic
Section.

If you are planning on attending but have procrastinated to this point,
be aware that online registration will close at 9AM on July 8,
Registration will resume at the hotel sometime during the weekend
before the official Conference launch Sunday morning. However, the
CD-ROM needs to be sent for replication 3 weeks before the conference
begins, so conference organizers will be cutting off the Family Finder
portion of the registration (at least as included in the syllabus and
CD-ROM) before the end of June. The Family Finder is a key ingredient
of the program and by waiting much longer you risk being left out.

I hope to be seeing many of you here in Washington!

Searching: Adler Henrik, born 1850(?), Zlate Moravce Slovakia, correction #hungary

EPAILAS@...
 

I am searching for family information on Henrik Adler born around 1850, probably in former greater Hungary.

Henrik was married around 1875 to Johanna Weinreb who was born in 1854 in Klatova Nova Ves. They had four children: Emil (1876), Sali Szerena (1880), Amalia (1883) and Emanuel (1885) (my grandfather). Other relatives may have geen Geza Adler born 1875 in Verebely and Sandor Adler born in 1894 in Jaswzbereny, also former Bars County Hungary.

Henrik and Johanna lived for a period of time in Volkovce near Zlate Moravce Slovakia, (this was formerly Arany Maroth in Bars County, Hungary). However Henrik appears not to have been born there.

I have not been able to find any information on where Henrik Adler was born, married or died. If anyone has come across the name henrik Adler >from approximately 1850 - 1900, or any of the other names listed above, I would appreciate a reply. Please reply directly to epailas@aol.com

Thank you.
