Help Needed Deciphering Hungarian Place Name #hungary

viviankahn@...
 

I was fortunate to find a marriage record for my great-aunt Rikel
KAHAN in one of the Maramaros record books that we're transcribing.
She was born in Sziget but I haven't been able to make out the place
of birth of her husband Mechel FUX.

Please take a look at the excerpt I've uploaded to ViewMate at http://www.jewishgen.org/viewmate/viewmateview.asp?key=18291
and contact me off-list if you can identify Mechel's birthplace. It might be Rusz Polyana.

All suggestions will be welcome. I'd also be interested to hear >from
anyone who has informaton about my great-aunt Rikel's husband Mechel,
son of Lazar FUX.

Nagy Becskerek/Zrenjanin #hungary

j.kovacs@...
 

You mention information you have >from photographs. I wonder if you have done genealogical research with those that the Mormons copied or perhaps they are not available in Sweden.

First you should find out if the Jewish records for this town are kept in Hungary or Serbia. In case they are still in the Hungarian archives in Budapest,that is a big if, then you can find the birth of the other 12 children of the Rossler/Bergenthal couple assuming they were all born in Nagy Becskerek. As women usually got married in the same town where their family lived, you should also be able to find the marriage of the sister and Erno Deim. You mention that the Deims lived in Nagymezo str in the 2nd district of Bp, but don't mention the district of their Koral str. address. I only find a Korall str in today's Budapest and that is in the 10th district close to the cemetery. If you know in what district they lived in 1918 then you can further research the Deims by district in the Budapest City archives or through childrens birth records or the couple's death records. Thus,you may find other information that may be useful, but it is a long road to
get to your great-grandfather, but it may be worth your time.

I'll not go further and I don't know what records if any are available in Serbia.

Mano, Lazi and Zelda LOFFLER, Budapest #hungary

Yohanan
 

A family legend is that my great uncle, Mano (Menachem, Manis) LOFFLER /
LOEFFLER
served as the Hungarian ambassador in Germany. If it is not a fiction,
my guess is that it was for a short time during the Hungarian Soviet
Republic in 1919.
Later on he returned to Budapest and, while being a cantor, operated
together
with his son Lazi (Leopold, Eliezer), a Minyan (small synagogue) in
Budapest.
He died of illness in 1940, his son Lazi was murdered in 1944
after saving life of other Jews by pretending to be a Nazi officer.
Presumably his wife Zelda saved others
by hiding them in her house in Budapest during 1944.
Any idea how to verify it, and how to find more information about the above?

Tiszalok rabbis #hungary

Stuart Ungar
 

Anyone have a list of Rabbis that served the Tiszalok community and a timeline for when they served? I created the Shtetlink site for JewishGen and this would be a great addition. I also have reason to believe one of my relatives may have served in that capacity there.

I will be visiting Tiszalok with my son next month.

Thank you,
Stuart UNGAR

Exciting records translated #lithuania

Howard Margol
 

Managing 22 translators working on Jewish records in the Lithuanian
archives for LitvakSIG, can involve receiving some records of the
ho hum variety.

It is very exciting however, to receive records that contain an
exceptional as well as variety of data. Even though these records
mean nothing to me personally, I know they can be very important for
other researchers. Those are the type of records that make this
volunteer work worthwhile and very satisfying.

Recently, two very exciting, as well as extensive,lists were received.
The Siauliai District 1914 Military List and the Ukmerge District 1915
Military List. Both lists include other family members in addition to
the name of the draftee. The ages of most of those listed are included
as well as where they were born or registered or were living. The
Siauliai list includes every major town and village in the district.
The Ukmerge list not only includes every major town and village but
also includes many tiny villages where only a few Jewish families lived.
You may find your ancestors in a tiny village you never heard of.
In some cases, the information provided may cause your brick wall to
come tumbling down.

If your are already a member of the Siauliai or Ukmerge District Research
Groups (DRG), you will have access to the records on the district
shutterfly web site. If you are not a member, but your ancestors came
from either area, you need to join. Not only will you see the military
lists but thousands of other records will be available to you as well.

To become a member of either district, contribute $100 to LitvakSIG,
designated for the district of your choosing. Go to
www.litvaksig.org/contribute/ Use your credit card as the site is secure.

Good luck in your research.
