Seeking information about Imre Laszlo "Laci" HAVAS #hungary

Jake Jacobs
 

Seeking information about my grandmother's brother, who disappeared in the Hungarian Labor Service in 1943. My grandmother was never convinced that he died; a number of conscripts in the Labor Service survived. As small as the world has become, with the internet and these list-servs, I am taking a last shot at seeing if there is any word of his survival.

Imre Laszo "Laci" HAVAS was born in 1908 in Gurahont (Honcto), then Hungary, now Romania. His parents were Jakab Havas (b. Hochwald) and Iren Bleuer. He spent most of his life in Bekes, Hungary. He married Iren GRUNWALD about 1943.

Laci was conscripted in the Hungarian Labor Service in 1943. He served in the VI Battalion out of Püspökladány, Hajdu-Bihar, Hungary. The regiment disappeared and there was no further word of Laci. Note there was another Imre Laszlo Havas,

If you have any knowledge regarding what became of Laci, my mom sure would love to know. Thank you so much.

Shalom,

It is sometimes quite amazing what can be done with the days
and hours in a month and quite a few dedicated volunteers.
The results of their labor within the Yizkor Book Project
is listed below, and continues as we "speak".

Although I frequently note our volunteers (well, at least try to),
I should really point out that a great deal of translations are
carried out by our very professional paid translators. Whilst
I prefer not to list them here for fear of forgetting someone,
you'll see their names appear frequently in the translations
appearing in the Yizkor Book site and I for one, am very
grateful for the excellent work they do within our project.

As you may be aware, their payment comes >from the kind donations
of people wishing to make sure that the contents of the Yizkor
books are made readily available to those of us who don't read
Yiddish and/or Hebrew, and will be available for the present
and generations to come. If this way of immortalizing our lost
communities is important to you, we welcome your donations to
one of our many projects which can be found at:
http://www.jewishgen.org/JewishGen-erosity/PL.asp?c=23

If the Yizkor book for the community of your interest
has yet to be set up as a project, please contact me
and we'll see how we can get such a project moving.

Now to facts and figures for April.

seeking graves in Berlin --MONTAG- nee REITZER #germany

Ava Forking
 

I am trying to locate the grave in Berlin of my great-grandmother Elenore
(Lenore) MONTAG, nee REITZER. She was born in Zenta, emigrated with 2
daughters >from Hungary to Berlin, after her husband Vilmos died. She lived with
one daughter Ilona at Lepsiusstr 20 (Steglitz). Ilona was taken and died in
Auschwitz.
There was another daughter Hajnal, who married a non-Jew. She died before
1927. She was buried in a cemetery that was close to the above address. My
mother, who visited in 1927 and 1928, said that her grandmother visited
Hajnal's grave almost daily.

Can someone help me locate the Jewish Cemetery near the above address? Are
there ways to search burials there on line?
I have already checked JOWBR and not found my ancestor there.
Thanks for suggestions and help.

Announcing a new book for the genealogy market #general

ron arons
 

I have some exciting news...

Have you heard of or used mind maps for genealogical research? Most people think
of mind maps as a tool that can be used for brainstorming and research planning.
And that's true. But mind maps can do SO MUCH MORE...

I should know. While I've been promoting mind maps in my presentations to
genealogy audiences for years, I just did not understand their power until December
/January, when I used them to solve two very challenging problems. One of these
problems had haunted me for fifteen years. Yet, when I put mind maps to work, I
elevated my research capabilities to levels I had never imagined. I could see
things with crystal clarity. Things just began to happen and I solved the problems
in no time at all.

Just this week I'm announcing the availability of my new book: Mind Maps for
Genealogy. It's 76 pages long. In full color. The publication starts with a
discussion of the basic concepts of mind maps for those who have not yet been
initiated and compares mind maps to other tools commonly used during the
genealogical research process. There are step-by-step instructions for using
FreeMind and XMind, two of the leading mind mapping software products and services
that also just happen to be free. (Both work on PCs and Macs.) There are many
real-world examples, several of which show how the Genealogical Proof Standard,
the FAN Principal, and Inferential Genealogy problems can be approached and solved
in a more colorful, visual, and, arguably, more efficient and expeditious way. Oh,
yes, the publication also has a buyer's guide, discussing the main points of some
of the best mind mapping tools/services (I could not possibly cover them all as
there are more than 30 of them available.).

The product is now available for sale at www. RonArons.com/store.php for the price
of $24.95

MODERATOR NOTE: This is a one-time announcement of a product which may be of
interest to Jewish genealogists.

Dear friends,

I'm happy to announce a new project - Indexing census records and passengers lists of Jews that
left Europe with the aid of the Jewish Colonization Association (JCA). Around the beginning of the
20th century the JCA helped thousands of Jews flee >from Europe (including many >from Bessarabia)
and sent them to agricultural colonies mainly in Argentina, but also in Uruguay, Brazil, Canada,
USA, and Palestine. The JCA kept the passengers lists and census records >from those colonies and
those records are now stored in the Central Archives of the History of the Jewish People in
Jerusalem, Israel.

During the project we will acquire copies of those records and generate a database of all the
names. The amount of information in the Archives is enormous, surely consisting of more than
100,000 names. We need your help to make this happen. Help can be offered in three ways:

1) We need volunteers that can go to the archives in Jerusalem with a digital camera and take
pictures of the documents. This is the main bottleneck of the project so if you think you might
be able to help please contact me.

2) We need donations to cover the expenses of taking the pictures. In order to donate money
please go to the JewishGen-erosity page (http://www.jewishgen.org/JewishGen-erosity/),
choose the Latin America SIG on the right, and then donate money to the first project on the
list. Any donation is greatly appreciated!

3) We need transliterators. The records are in classical Latin alphabet and mostly easy to read.
No knowledge in Spanish is required.

Dear fellow researchers,

I am looking for information on Shmuel LIPSON of Balti [known also as Belz in Besserabia (Moldova] and his family. Shmuel Lipson was a prominent, wealthy person, founded a yeshiva prior to WWI, and was father-in-law of Rabbi Moshe Chaim Yehshua TWERSKY of Tomoshpil.

I am especially interested to know who were his ancestors, and extended family of uncles, cousins, etc.
