Budapest Telephone Directory #hungary

pinardpr@...
 

Dear H-Sig,

Renato Mannheimer asked about an on-line site with Budapest telephone directories.

I don't know of any such site on-line apart >from this one on archive.org, which is for the Hungarian telephone network outside of Budapest, however:

https://archive.org/details/AVidekiHalozatokBeturendesTavbeszeloNevsora1943


It seems to have all the pages, but it is not easy to use, as they are listed in bunches and the names of the bunches do not follow each other logically.

I own a directory for Budapest >from 1943 and another for the rest of the country >from 1942. Judging by the names, Jewish businesses and people are still clearly listed in both of those.

I would be happy to look someone or something up in them for anyone, if the publishing dates are relevant to your search.

Chag sameach and all the best,

Re: marriage certificate, whitechapel #unitedkingdom

Allen Dryer
 

Dear Daniel,

Finding a UK marriage (or birth or death) record (>from 1837 on) is a
two step process:

1) Search the index of Birth, Marriage and Death records of the UK
General Records Office (GRO) at http://www.freebmd.org.uk for the
district, volume and page number of the GRO Index Reference Number of
the relevant entry.

In this case, you already know the district is Whitehall, which helps
confirm that you have found the correct result when you search for the
marriage of Philip Smith in 1915 and find
Smith Philip Lefkovitz Whitechapel 1c 781
Click on the page number (781) for more details:
http://tinyurl.com/h3qgvfh and this will confirm that this is the
index record for Philip Smith and Annie Lefkovitz's marriage.

2) To request a copy of the actual record in the marriage registry,
contact the General Records Office certificate ordering service:
https://www.gro.gov.uk/gro/content/certificates/

You will need to create a (free) account, then select the record type
you are requesting (in this case, Marriage Certificate (England &
Wales) and indicate that you know the GRO Index Reference Number) and
year and then fill in the request form providing the required location
of the record, in this case, district: Whitechapel, volume: 1c, page:
781. You will be required to pay for the copying of the record and it
will be mailed to you. Standard delivery cost currently is £9.25 per
certificate.

Origin of female name "Meimel" #general

Deborah Dworski
 

I have a female cousin whose Jewish name is Meimel. She was named after her
grandmother. She would like to know about the origin of this name, but I
haven't been able to find anything about it. I do see that there are about
thirty females with the name Meimel in the JRI-Poland Database, so it's not
unique, though it does seem rather unusual. Maybe it's a nickname, and I'm
just not making a mental association with the formal name?

Would anyone be able to help me?

Thank you in advance,
Deborah Dworski

Hi all. This is my first post here. My maternal grandfather's family has
deep roots in Bolechow. The one document that has long eluded us,

1912.

Yaremche does not appear to have had a large Jewish population,
and I'm having a hard time ascertaining where the certificate would
be. I'm not even sure if it's in Ukraine or Poland.

Relatedly, I have no frame of reference for what circumstances might

or would the body have been transported back to Bolechow? Where
would the closest Jewish cemetery to Yaremche have been?

----------------------------------------------------------------------

Jennifer,

Town Yaremche (Polish: Jaremcze) is located in the Nadvirna (Polish:
Nadworna) district of the Ivano-Frankivsk (Polish: Stanislawow)
Province of the western part of Ukraine.

The town is known as a spa and tourist attraction of the Eastern
Carpathians region, situated in the Prut River Valley near the
Hungarian and Romanian borders.

The Jewish population of this place was indeed small, and it was not
known to have an established Jewish community.

The town Jaremcze was connected by railway (rail line Stanislawow -
Woronienka) link to major towns in Galicia. Distance between towns
Bolechow and Jaremcze is about 83 miles, thus body was schlepped
by rail >from Jaremcze to Stanislawow, and >from Stanislawow to
Bolechow.

You can check Bolechow records through JRI-P database.

Re: Birth record that isn't one #galicia

Stephen Weinstein
 

There probably isn't an earlier "original" record. Many births simply
weren't recorded when they happened, for various reasons. Maybe
no one who knew of the birth was aware of the requirement to report
it to whomever was supposed to record it. Maybe if a baby wasn't
expected to live, they didn't see the point to recording the birth.
Maybe some parents felt that if the birth was recorded, the child
would be at risk of being drafted into the military later, and tried to
protect their child >from this by keeping the birth (and therefore the
existence of the child) secret >from the government. And in one case
which you may have heard mentioned at your Seder, the parents of
Moses tried to hide him due to Pharaoh's decree to kill the Jewish
males.
