Re: Location name #hungary

The closest place name that i can think of is hatvan, in heves megye. (there are also 3 others, in somogy, szilagy and pest-pilis-solt-kiskun.) due to the listserve software, i cannot tell whether you intended to use an inverted exclamation mark (¥) in the place name, or whether that's just the way it is being displayed at my end - in either case, i don't know what that character might be.

i like to use the 1913 gazetteer of hungary at bogardi.com for looking up place names. it works well on partial character strings, and includes "greater hungary" (pre-trianon).

the best way to get help deciphering names/places is to post an image of the page on viewmate, if you can.

A late XIX Century census page at
the Hungarian Jewish Museum archive, in Budapest, says that my
great-grandmother and her brothers and sisters were born in a location
written as "_¥van_". The archive staff was unable to understand which
location today it might be, nor whether it is the full name or the
abbreviation of a longer name. I turn to you, therefore, wondering
whether anybody can be of help. As far as I can find today, the only
Avan location existing is one district of Erevan (Armenia), but it seems
to me very unlikely that it might correspond to the location listed in
that census.

Jewish Genealogy Society of Cleveland #general

February 3 Jewish Genealogy Society of Cleveland Meeting Announcement
Russ Maurer, coordinator of the Vilnius Household Registers Project of the
Lithuanian-Jewish Special Interest Group (LitvakSIG), will recount the
events that led to the introduction of household registration to Vilnius a
century ago at the February 3 meeting of the Jewish Genealogy Society of Cleveland.

Maurer will explain how household registration worked, information which
provides the background necessary to understand these records along with the
unique insights they provide into information about Jews in Vilnius between
the world wars when Poland controlled areas located now in eastern Lithuania
and adjoining Belarus. Some 13,000 household registers contain millions of
lines of detailed data about Vilnius residents and visitors, many of whom
were Jewish. Maurer was the recipient of the Rabbi Malcolm Stern Grant on
behalf of LitvakSIG presented by the International Association of Jewish
Genealogical Societies at the 2018 conference held in Warsaw, Poland. This
year's IAJGS Conference will be held in Cleveland >from July 28 through August 2.

Question for the group #galicia

Daniel Klapper
 

Hello Galitzianers!

I wonder if I can ask for help and advice I seemed to have hit a
genealogical wall.

The Klapper family >from Ulanow my branch and the Klapper family
from Lvov share many common names that other branches do not.
Ulanow and Lvov are around 100 miles apart so it is conceivable
that someone would move one to the other. Records stop at about
1880 with the marriage of Kiva Lustig and Rywka Klapper of Lvov.

Do you advise DNA testing? Which one? Has anyone had
experience with trying to prove relationships?

Many thanks in advance for your input.

Best wishes

Re: Yehuda Leyb LOEWE #germany

Gerhard Buck <gbuckidstein22@...>
 

To me as a researcher in Western Germany the question arises, if your
difficulties are caused by a wrong name, a frequent cause for a brick
wall. Is the name really "Yehuda Leyb LOEWE"?

"LOEWE" with uppercase letters means in this forum that this name was
a family name. Did Jews have family names in that region in the early
1700s? I have just solved a comparable problem in my region. A family
name adopted in 1841 and looking like a Jewish given name was
transferred to several preceding generations as the last name,
although family names did not exist and the second name was a
patronymic. The source was a well known genealogy company.

The first two names (Yehuda Leib) can also be a source for trouble.
"Leib" does not mean body but lion or Loewe. The German word Loewe was
changed a lot, when Jews used it as a given name. It was the secular
form for the religious Hebrew name Yehuda. In Hebrew sources
(headstones, signatures) we find Yehuda and in German sources (lists,
registers) we read L=C3=B6w(e) and all its many variations. Leib is one of
them. So the first two names may be a combination of the religious and
the secular given name of one person.

The result for Yehuda Leyb LOEWE: we are confronted with one name only
and we should look for an additional different one. There are of
course examples for the same given name for father and son, yet they
are rare.

My contribution shall not solve the problem. It will only give hints
for new ideas.
