Jewish Cemetery in Kosice #hungary

Georges Graner
 

Dear siggers,
In a recent posting,Judi Gyori Missel gave the URL of a Cemetery in Kosice,
in Slovak, where she found some Jewish names.
I would like to recall that there is also a site for the old Jewish
cemetery of Kosice http://www.kosice.sk/history/zidovsky/jevish0.htm . It
is in English and Slovak.
Good luck

Accessing the 1715 Census #hungary

WEISZ from Ordarma/Jovro/Eor (Storoznitsa) #hungary

Pamela Weisberger <pweisberger@...>
 

I am researching the Weiss/Weisz family >from the Transcarpathian town of
ORDARMA also known as:
which, until the late 1800s was two places (Õr)-Darma and Õr (a.k.a. Eor,
Jone, Jóra, Jovro, Javro, Yareh (in Hebrew: yud alef resh ayin))

Today, this town is known as Storoznitsa, on the outskirts of Uzhgorod
(formerly Ungvar), Ukraine.

Although knowns by these different names (and this Eor should not be
confused with the Õr or Eor in Szabolcs County) I know for certain that my
great-great-grandfather, Efraim Weisz (born in Ungvar in 1812) was a ritual
slaughterer in that town and was living there in 1853 through 1860.

Efraim's father was MENACHEM MENDEL WEISZ, who had been a rabbi. I've read
that the synagogue for Jovre/Or/Ordarma was located in Nagy-Kapos, which
today is in Slovakia and called Vel'ké Kapu.

He was married to Hani Perlmutter, born in Gyure in 1830, although she might
not have been his first wife. They had Czarna/Regina/Seri, Beila, Josef.
Cheskel, Szali and Roszali (Sarah). They moved to Nagytarkany (today Velky
Trakan in Slovakia) around 1861, emigrated to the United States in the 1880s
and died in Poughkeepsie, NY in 1895.

The children listed above all emigrated to the States except for Cheskel,
who married Kati Klein and settled in Csap. When they lived on the lower
east side in the late 1880s, several marriages were officiated at by a Rev.
Samuel Weiss, possibly a relative.

Since Weiss is such a common Hungarian name, if anyone has information
specifically about Weisses (or Perlmutters) >from the towns mentioned above,
or knows of any Jewish records for these towns or the synagogue in
Nagykapos, please get in touch with me privately unless it is of general
interest to the discussion group.

Many thanks!

Re: Sephardic Jews in Kolosvar? #hungary

you have to be careful to distinguish "nusach sefarad", which is a hassidic variation of the ashkenazic tradition, >from "minhag sefarad" which is the real sefardic ritual. i would guess that there were very few, if any, genuine sefardics in transylvania, but there were a lot of hassidim, which some people refer to as "davening sefardic", which is not accurate.

outside of transylvania, i don't know much about the jews nearer bucharest, etc.

Sidney Steiner (a German-Jew born 1863 in Feodosiya, Crimea) immigrated to
NYC before 1900 and became active in early Vaudeville there. Family legend
says he attended the Berlin Conservatory of Music and toured extensively
before settling in NYC. His stage name was 'Sidney Mayo, the golden throated
tenor'. How can I find any extant NYC records of his career? Thanks for any
help.

Re: Pogroms in central Ukraine - Vinittsya oblast -- circa 1916-1918 #ukraine

| Does anyone know of any pogroms that occurred in central Ukraine sometime
| during 1916 thru 1918?
|
| In an interview in 1996, my uncle now deceased, remembered specifically a
| 'pogrom' in his birthplace, Bershad, a town in Vinnitsya oblast, approx.
| midway between Kiev and Odessa, and slightly to the west near the Bug river.
| He remembers that he was 7 or 8 yrs old then, which would make the time of
| the pogrom sometime during the years 1916 thru 1918, more or less.
|
| I wonder if my uncle, 87 yrs old when interviewed, confused roving bands
| of revolutionaries (Bolsheviks, Menshiviks), Czarist sympathizers, and
| marauding mobs at this time, for a pogrom instituted by the Czarist gov't?
|
| Charles Millman

According to correspondence >from the late Marshall Frenkel, whose ancester
Moisei Frenkel (1880-1916) owned a sawmill near Zhitomir (not terribly far from
Vinnitsya), his employees, who were Ukrainian "muzhiks," requested "a few days
free time so that they could take part in a pogrom that they heard was going to
happen in a nearby shtetl." Unfortunately, there is no specific date associated
with this event, but it must have been sometime between 1900 and 1916 and the
general impression given is that this sort of thing was not entirely uncommon
during that period and that these were local affairs and were not instituted by
external forces. When Moisei died, a previously "friendly" band of Cossacks
looted the mill. Later, his foreman, another Cossack, helped the family escape
to Poland after the "Bolsheviks confiscated all property." So, it would seem the
children of Moisei were able to distinguish between the actions of the local
population and those of the Bolsheviks, and you should probably give the benefit
of the doubt to your uncle in this regard as well.
