IAJGS Conferences #latvia

Michael Goldstein
 

This is an appeal directed to every Jewish genealogist who is a member of a
JGS, a SIG, an active or passive participant in JewishGen discussion groups
etc. For over three decades, IAJGS has produced successful annual
international conferences. These successes are a result of dedicated JGS
leadership motivating their dedicated volunteers. The conferences enhance
all our research efforts through lectures, workshops, and networking. All
conferences need volunteers and this is an area where you can be of
assistance. We also encourage you to ask your JGS to host or co-host a
conference with IAJGS. The work will be hard, success virtually assured but
the satisfaction of what you achieve will be over the top. It will be a
partnership dedicated to adding yet another successful conference to the
long list of previous successes. We are now actively seeking locations for
the years 2016, 2017, and 2018.

This past fall, IAJGS Immediate Past President, Anne Feder Lee and Board
Director, Jackye Sullins, completed the mammoth task of updating our
conference guide now titled: Conference Planning & Management Guide for
IAJGS International Conferences on Jewish Genealogy. This will help us
produce even better conferences in the future.

High on the heels of this past summer's very successful conference hosted
by the Los Angeles JGS, excitement is building towards Washington, DC this
August where the JGS of Greater Washington is the host. We hope to see you
there!

Thank you.

Re: Drohobycz house numbers #galicia

Mark Jacobson
 

Hi David, and anyone else researching Drohobycz,

For a special Drohobycz records project I researched the meaning
of 'addresses' in Drohobycz. What you are asking about is a
special 'quirk' of Drohobycz records, something that had me
baffled for a long time until I was able to 'crack' the code.

There were no street names in Drohobycz before about 1900.
Actual street names listed in the records starting about 1900 will
usually have a "ul." as part of the name for ulica. The earlier vital
records >from Drohobycz do not list street names. Records that do
not record an event happening in a nearby town (like Stebnik or
Modrycz) record the abreviated names of one of the seven
Drohobycz districts/neighborhoods/suburbs along with a house
number in that area. These seven areas were later incorporated
into central Drohobycz city but are listed separately in these old
records. For anyone researching Drohobycz who wants to know
the names of these districts here they are:

The seven Drohobycz Districts usually appear as abbreviations
such as Lisz, Zag, Zaw, Zwar, Zad, Wojt and Pleb. The full names
are Plebania, Lisznia (not to be confused with the nearby town of
Lisznia which when listed in records is spelled out in full and not
abbreviated like the district name), Zwarycz, Wojtowska Gora,
Zadworna, Zagrody Miejskie and Zawieczna. Sometimes you will
also see "N" or "miasto" for the main city houses not in the seven
districts, sometimes only a number.

Jewish Community of Brandfort #southafrica

Dear Researchers,

I am seeking information about Louis Rosenthal who was buried in the
Brandfort Jewish Cemetery in June 1932.
I am doubtful if I can find any more information about Louis but perhaps
someone has information about the Jewish Community
of Brandfort in the 1920's and 1930's.

Thanking you in advance,

Politzer family from Budapest #hungary

goldbergcohenfamily@...
 

Hello:

Is anyone researching the Politzer family >from Budapest? We hope to
find the family of George Politzer, but have very little information.
I've spent a lot of time on my German genealogy, but haven't
researched Jewish genealogy in Hungary. Since Politzer is a common
surname, I will provide a few more details about George, in case his
story is part of any Politzer family lore.

George Politzer was my husband's 'real' grandfather and his daughter,
my mother-in-law Eva, is asking if I can find his family and/or more
information about George.
This is what we know:

George was >from Budapest, probably born about 1920.=A0 He may have
married=A0 Edit (Edith ) Roth=A0 before=A0 his child, Eva was born in 1945.
The family survived the war=A0 and went to to Frankfurt=A0 where George
got into trouble. Supposedly George robbed a movie theater in
Frankfurt=A0 and accidentally shot and killed someone. He was then
imprisoned in Frankfurt, where he may have died.

Eva's mother met a man in Frankfurt who would become Eva's
stepfather, a survivor >from Mauthausen. The family moved to the US and
very little was ever said again about George Politzer.=A0 Though Eva's
stepfather is still alive (her mother is not),he has always refused to
talk=A0 about George with her -- it upsets him a great deal.=A0=A0 It's
possible that some of the details about the fate of George are
incorrect.

I appreciate any suggestions on finding George Politzer. My next step
may be to contact the Politzer researchers on Jewishgen and
investigate the prison situation in Frankfurt after the war.

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?
