South Africa SIG #SouthAfrica Louis GOLDMAN #southafrica

Adam Yamey <adamandlopa@...>
 

I have found references (both in Herrman and in Saron
& Hotz) to a Louis GOLDMAN who was living in the 1850s
and 1860s in the Cape. He may have lived for some time
at Burghersdorp, and was also active in Aliwal North.
According to one source he was involved in the
Mosenthal Bros. firm.

Does anyone know >from where in Europe he came?

Any information about this person, who worked with a
relative of mine in Aliwal North would be of great
interest to me.

South Africa SIG #SouthAfrica South African Arrivals 1890 thru 1935 #southafrica

Adam Eisen <aeisen@...>
 

My great-grandfather Harry Rubenstein made several roundtrip journeys from
Philadelphia to South Africa (ie to the Orange Free State) sometime during
the period 1890-1935. Would anyone know which ships traveled this route and
where I might find his arrival/departure records in South Africa?

South Africa SIG #SouthAfrica YANKELOVITCH / YOSELOWITZ #southafrica

Fbm286@...
 

I am looking for family. Part of my family left Lubcza, Lomza and Suwalki.
They emigrated to South Africa. I believe they went to Johannesburg in the
early 1900's. The family name was Yankelovitch (Yoselowitz - the American
version). The Grand Rabbi of Suwalki was Joseph Yankelovitch, a relative of mine.
If anyone knows how I may be able to find them please let me know.

Hungary SIG #Hungary Re: Finding 60 Year old contacts in Israel from the YadVashem Database #hungary

tom klein <h-sig@...>
 

my first suggestion would be to post a direct link to the page of testimony that you are referring to. (just highlight the part that starts with: "http:/..." at the top of the screen, copy it, and paste it into your message.) when i tried looking for FISCHMANN/sziget/POLK, etc, i couldn't find it.

and second, always, always, always look at the image of the original page of testimony. often, the (correct) name and address (and maybe even phone number!) of the submitter are right there, even if the reported information is (sometimes) inaccurate. you can try starting at their last known address.

Hungary SIG #Hungary On line Romanian Directory from 1922 to1925 #hungary

From: Susanna Vendel <svendel@...>

X-Message-Number: 1

I found a very interesting On line Romanian Directory. The original is at
the Library of Congress.
http://www.loc.gov/rr/european/phonero/romdir.html At the address you will
find the explanation of the contents

http://lcweb2.loc.gov/cgi-bin/ampage?collId=gdc3&fileName=scd0001_20030129001ropage.db

This is the list of the
institutions and their employees in the capital Bucharest. You can turn
over the pages or you can write a page number.
For ex. I found at the page no 56 the name Weisselberger Salo from
Cernauti who was member of the Senate that period, or the name of Metzner
Natalia (chief in the Medical Assistance) and her address: Mosilor 161, etc

http://lcweb2.loc.gov/cgi-bin/ampage?collId=gdc3&fileName=scd0001_20030122001ropage.db

This is the list of the institutions and, their employees and different
occupations and shopkeeper by regions, cities and villages. The names of
the regions are alphabetical and if you are patient you can easily find the
locality you are looking for. But you must know in which region it was
located. For ex. page 43 the village of AGAS. You will find the names of
Eisenberg B & Moscovici Galu, Manolovici Solomon owners of a lumber factory
and Rotemberg David as a shoemaker.

Unfortunately these 2 Directories covers only 2-3 years but they can give
us an image of the life and organisation in these places (especially the
directory for the rest of the country).

Susanna Vendel, Stockholm

Moderator: Volume II of this directory covers Romania outside of Bucharest. Part V will be of particular interest because it covers the formerly Hungarian counties that were annexed to Romania following Trianon including Transilvania, Banat, Crisana, and Maramures. These parts are arranged by judet, then by city or commune. It lists organizations, businesses, directors, owners, etc. It concludes with indexes of the villages and towns listed in the volume. The finding aid for Volume II http://www.loc.gov/rr/european/phonero/rmdir2help.html provides further detail.

Hungary SIG #Hungary Tomor/Miskolc property claims #hungary

PBethWeiss@...
 

Hi all,
I have decided to enquire about property that had belonged to my father's
family in Tomor, which is a small village outside of Miskolc. I've been told
there are no online land register resources for Hungary. (Is this true?)
I have found an email address for the mayor of Miskolc, and have emailed him
asking where to address a letter enquiring about this matter.
I'm writing to the group to see if anyone here has had similar dealings in
the Miskolc area, and if so, to ask about the outcome.
Please contact me at pbethweiss@... if you have any information.
Thanks!

Hungary SIG #Hungary Town location help needed #hungary

Teresa Delikat <flott_genealogy@...>
 

List members,

Today I received the naturalization papers for my
husband's Great Grandfather Gyula (Julius) Delikat. He
lists his place of birth as Lopowniga or Lopowniza.

He lists his wife Jenny Reich Delikat's place of birth
as Possny. (I believe this is Pozony.)

When the family immigrated they listed their place of
residence was listed as Szt. Miklos. Julius's neice,
Ilona Scheunowitz, listed her place of origin as V.
Szered.

I need help in locating these places on a map.

Thank you,
Teresa Delikat

Some suggestions:

You can contact the town hall in Nyiregyhaza which might have information
about older hotels, but there is chance that the hotel is still in
existence.

There is a famous hotel/restaurant...not exactly next to the train station,
but walking distance, called "Hotel Korona" which is over 105 years old.
Here's a link:

http://www.hotelhungary.com/hotel/korona_nyh.asp

But a Google search might also yield information. You could try contacting
the Jewish community in Nyiregyhaza to see if one of the volunteers there
could do some research on your behalf. In the past these offices were
staffed by young men who supervised the office in lieu of serving in the
military. They have no Jewish vital or community records per se, but might
be able to research something of a town-history nature. Their email address
was:

nyirzsido@...

But these change over time. There are also regional archives in Nyriegyhaza
which might have information.

Good luck!
