Sise is the nickname for? #hungary

Alex Magocsi
 

Sise Geif was born 1 April 1860 in Toelcsik.
He was the son of Benjamin and Hany Greif.

I assume that Sise is a nickname.

Am I correct and, if so, what would have been this person's full name?

Subject: [h-sig] Uzhhorod (Ungvar) Cemetery update

Dear Sub-Carpathia researchers,

As I have mentioned in my recent "Trip Reports," the Uzhhorod (Ungvar) cem=
etery has looked like "Jurassic Park" with most of its tombstones inaccess=
ible. This has been a subject of concern to many researchers interested in=
finding and photographing their ancestors' burial places therein. Further=
more, recent visitors were unable to reach any of the stones due to the se=
vere overgrowth on the cemetery grounds---a common problem throughout Sub-=
Carpathia for many abandoned cemeteries.

However, I am pleased to announce that over the past month, the Uzhhorod
(Ungvar) cemetery has been cleared of its severe overgrowth to allow acces=
s to all of the plots and tombstones. This mitzvah was funded by a rabbi f=
rom upstate New York, who has no relatives in the Uzhhorod
(Ungvar) cemetery, but had a keen interest in seeing that the deceased who=
are buried there have their final resting place properly cared for.=20
He contacted fellow rabbi >from Brooklyn, with experience managing restorati=
ons in Sub-Carpathia, to oversee this cemetery project that was completed =
last week.=20

Some grass and small twig cuttings remain for the spring, but the cemetery=
is fully accessible now. Needless to say, clearing the cemetery of the ov=
ergrowth and dealing with the large piles of cut trees and brush was an ex=
tremely time-consuming task.

Plans are underway to repair the breaches in the stone wall surrounding th=
e cemetery which permitted "unauthorized access" to it and hopefully, putt=
ing a stop to the removal of any more tombstones. Additionally, many tombs=
tones have fallen due to age or vandalization. Plans are underway to erect=
them. Sadly, in some instances, the top sections of the tombstones were r=
emoved, only the bases remain.

In 2013, I plan to photograph all of the tombstones in the Uzhhorod
(Ungvar) cemetery.=20

For your viewing, I made a small slide show of 14 images taken today and o=
ne image showing one of the breaches in the cemetery wall, yet to be repai=
red.

JOWBR and Memorial Plaque Updates #hungary

Nolan Altman
 

Due to the unexpected arrival of Superstorm/Hurricane/Tropical Storm/All
Around Pain-in-the-Tuchas Sandy, the next update to JewishGen's JOWBR
(JewishGen's Online Worldwide Burial Registry) Database
(http://www.jewishgen.org/databases/Cemetery/) will be pushed back to
January and we will try to include all submissions made through the end of
the year. Due to 4 lost weeks at the East Coast JewishGen satellite office
in Oceanside, my house, we have a backlog of work and will try to get done
as much as possible for January. (Per JOWBR's requirements, submissions
should include complete cemeteries or cemetery sections, not individual
family burial information.)

If we can't get our submissions online in January, fear not! The next
update will be our usual pre-conference update that will incorporate all
submissions made through May 2013 for a June 2013 update. So, keep
photographing and indexing all spring!

JOWBR currently contains over 1.8 million Jewish burial records >from 65
countries. The database grows through the efforts of our donors; Jewish
Genealogical Societies, individuals, historical societies, cemetery
administrators, synagogues and Chevra Kadishas. If you are aware of
cemetery records that are not currently in our database, we would appreciate
if you could help us obtain them and help grow the database.

If you're interested in making a submission, please see "Submitting Data to
JOWBR" at http://www.jewishgen.org/databases/Cemetery/Submit.htm If you
prefer, you can also watch our online screencasts that show you how JOWBR
works and will also walk you through the completion of the standard
templates at http://www.jewishgen.org/databases/Cemetery/Screencasts/

An what about the Memorial Plaque project? Not a day goes by, other than
last Thursday, that I'm not stopped on the street by a member of a JGS or
historical society asking, "What can we do to help the greater genealogical
community?" Unlike JOWBR, the Memorial Plaque Project is a perfect project
that can be worked on at home and at any time of the day or night. The JGS
of Greater Boston is doing a wonderful job of indexing memorial plaques from
synagogues in the Boston area. The next update will be made at the same
time the JOWBR pre-conference update is made. Please see
http://www.jewishgen.org/databases/Memorial/ for more information.

Ukraine SIG #Ukraine Uzhhorod (Ungvar) Cemetery update #ukraine

Marshall Katz
 

Dear Sub-Carpathia researchers,

As I have mentioned in my recent "Trip Reports," the Uzhhorod (Ungvar)
cemetery has looked like "Jurassic Park" with most of its tombstones
inaccessible. This has been a subject of concern to many researchers
interested in finding and photographing their ancestors' burial places
therein. Furthermore, recent visitors were unable to reach any of the
stones due to the severe overgrowth on the cemetery grounds---a common
problem throughout Sub-Carpathia for many abandoned cemeteries.

However, I am pleased to announce that over the past month, the Uzhhorod
(Ungvar) cemetery has been cleared of its severe overgrowth to allow
access to all of the plots and tombstones. This mitzvah was funded by a
rabbi >from upstate New York, who has no relatives in the Uzhhorod
(Ungvar) cemetery, but had a keen interest in seeing that the deceased
who are buried there have their final resting place properly cared for.
He contacted fellow rabbi >from Brooklyn, with experience managing
restorations in Sub-Carpathia, to oversee this cemetery project that was
completed last week.

Some grass and small twig cuttings remain for the spring, but the
cemetery is fully accessible now. Needless to say, clearing the cemetery
of the overgrowth and dealing with the large piles of cut trees and brush
was an extremely time-consuming task.

Plans are underway to repair the breaches in the stone wall surrounding
the cemetery which permitted "unauthorized access" to it and hopefully,
putting a stop to the removal of any more tombstones. Additionally, many
tombstones have fallen due to age or vandalization. Plans are underway
to erect them. Sadly, in some instances, the top sections of the
tombstones were removed, only the bases remain.

In 2013, I plan to photograph all of the tombstones in the Uzhhorod
(Ungvar) cemetery.

For your viewing, I made a small slide show of 14 images taken today and
one image showing one of the breaches in the cemetery wall, yet to be
repaired.

Here is the link for the slide show:

Hello Friends on JewishGen,

I want to say "thanks" to all of you on JewishGen who have provided
help and support, as well as amazing intstruction on doing Jewish
family History, in finding my g-grandfather and looking for relatives
in the UK.

I'm overwhelmed by your generosity. Once I weed through all of this
information and put it to work in finding my relatives, I will sit
and answer each of your personally.

Again, many heartfelt thanks.
