LICHT in Vienna #hungary

Judy Petersen
 

Hello,
I recently found out that a brother of my great-grandmother, named
Zsiga/Zsigmund LICHT, who was born in Kormend in 1855, died in Becs (Vienna) on
26 Jun 1906. The death was recorded in Kormend civil registration records on
12 Sep 1907. His address in Vienna was listed as XVIII Martin Strasse 43.
The Kormend records listed as "unknown" whether he had a spouse.
Can someone help me decipher where in Vienna that address is and
suggest how I can find out whether he was married or not?
Thanks!

Hungarian Military Archives #hungary

Those of you who have more recently joined this list may not be aware
that the Hungarian Military Museum has a searchable database that
includes names of many who served in the Hungarian Labor Battalion.
Records may include date and place of birth, mother's maiden name, and
father's name. The URL has changed. Current address is http://www.hadifogoly.hu/

The site is in Hungarian but easy to use if you know a few basic terms:

Vezetknv: Surname
Keresztnv: Given name
Szletsi v: Birth date

Kereses: Search

Appears that there is some information here that is not in the Nevek
book that is incorporated in the Yad Vashem Central Database.

Announcement from Joyce Field #hungary

Joyce Field
 

After over 12 years of association with JewishGen, I will be leaving on
December 31. I have learned much >from my involvement with this great
organization and I will miss all the wonderful friends I have met. I am
thankful most of all for the encouragement I received >from Susan King to
start new programs and grateful to Joanna Fletcher and Carol Skydell for
their constant help and friendship. I am thankful for the great staff I have
worked with: Lance Ackerfeld, Osnat Ramaty, Max Heffler, Mike Kalt, and
Nolan Altman. Without them we could not have seen the Yizkor Book,
Holocaust Database, and JOWBR projects grow. Working with the SIGS, the
JGSs, and all the great volunteers on translation and data entry projects as
well as the colleagues at USHMM and Yad Vashem was always a personally
enjoyable and an enriching experience.

I wish all of you good health and success in your genealogical work. I hope
we will keep in touch to share future successes.

Re: Names of Holocaust Victims in Slovakia-Regional Archives #hungary

Gershon Markowitz <gershontikunim@...>
 

How does one find these archives?


Gershon

-----Original Message-----

Dear All,

Following the thread of messages re Holocaust victims' names in Slovakia, I
would like to note that in my experience, regional state archives may have
deportation and death lists, as well as information on those who returned to
their hometowns after the War. This refers specifically to the Levice
archives (subsidiary branch of the Nitra archives). You may enquire with the
respective archives for such info, without initiating a full-scale paid
research.

Best Regards,

HEIMOWITZ - Hunsdorf/Huncovce #hungary

Marian Brown
 

I just found out that my great grandmother, Sarah HEIMOVITZ NEWMAN, was
born in Hunsdorf ca 1931. I have no record of her birth there.
Shelived in Licsert/Licartovce and I found a record stating her father
was Sol. Hwimowitz.

There is also a rabbi, Solomon HEIMOWITZ, mentioned in many marriages in
Lemes/Lemesany, Slovakia. He was married to Mari HELISAUER and they had
a daughter, Mali, married to Marcus STURZ.

Also, I have Hungarian records for a family >from Huncovce as follows:

Solomon HEIMOWITCH (a jurist?)
married to Maria MARKUS

Children all born in Huncovce:

Nathan HEIMOWITZ b 1827 in Huncovce. A not on his 1847 marriage record
to Leny FUCH/FRICS states that he worked for his grandfathr, Samuel
MARCUS in a canvas textile factory

Markus HEIMOWITCH b 1834

Chaja HEIMOWITCH b 1836

Lowy HEIMOWITCH b 1837

Jeches HEIMOWITCH b 1847

Does any of this ring a bell?

Thanks,
