Russian POWs from Hungarian Labor Service #hungary

Jake Jacobs
 

Randolph Braham"s seminal work on the Hungarian Labor service says many jewish
HLS conscripts were taken as prisoners of war following the battle near Voronezh
in January 1943. Are there any records of these prisoners, after they were captured
by Russia? My great uncle was in this group. His name was Imre Laszlo Havas, born
1910 in Bekes He was in the VI Battalion >from Puspokladany. The battalion's last
recorded location was Saguny, now in Ukraine There are a few Jewish graves here,
from this battle My great-uncle is not among them.
Many thanks

Convention for Dates #hungary

David Lewin
 

To whom do I address a request for a change in Jewishgen "norm"
which, in my opinion affects a large part of our membership?

I would like Jewishgen to change their convention to and adopt a Date
Display which use three letters of the Alphabet for the months names
rather than two digits.

The difference between the American "norm" and the non-American norm
causes no end of problems:- Is 02/07 the 7th o February or is it
the 2nd of July?

David Lewin

Moderator: The genealogical protocol would be 7 Feb and 2 Jul.

Bender or Binder Family #poland #lodz

tomkoppel@...
 

My wife's great great grandparents were Chaim Sztucki and Ryfka nee
Bender (or Binder). Ryfka was born according to an old family interview
in Grodzisk Mazowiecki around 1842 but I was only able to find a birth
in Jozefow Ordynacki.  According to the interview she died in Lodz
around 1910. On JRI-Poland I found a Ryfka Bender who died in 1909 in
Lodz. The citation gives Akta 629. I don't know whether this is the
person I'm looking for. It seems logical that I would be finding it
under her married name of Sztucki. I did find a Rywka Ruchla Sztucka
who  died in 1908 in Lodz (Akta 576). There is no microfilm listed for
LDS as this is in the period when LDS no longer microfilmed.

Can anybody help me find these records to see whether one of them was my
wife's forebear?

The Rabbi of Wolbrom's Daughter #general

RCK
 

I am trying to figure out an excerpt >from the Yizkor book about the town of Wolbrom
(near Krakow) in Poland in the section which discusses the town's rabbi, my
ancestor, Rabbi Yaakov HaLevi Segal. This excerpt alludes to some sort of
controversy over the rabbi's daughter Tovah and the identity of her husband, but
does not spell out what's going on nor provide any citations for the controversy.
Does anybody know where I can find out more information about this? The full page
and the entire book can be accessed via the NY Public Library's digital collections
at this page:
https://digitalcollections.nypl.org/items/ae4699c0-28b3-0133-4114-58d385a7bbd0/book#page/176/
(MODERATOR: https://tinyurl.com/y5rsfn6t )

As far as I know, my gggg-grandfather Binyamin Eliezer UNGAR-AUERBACH
married a daughter of Rabbi Yaakov Segal, but I don't know her name or
anything else about him, except that his son was Rabbi Reuven Chaim
KLEIN who served as a rabbi in Davidkoff (near Muncasz), Hungary.
Thank you very much for your help.

What's In a Name?: LEURIE/LEVINE/TAUFIELD/MICHALOWITZ #general

Marilyn Robinson <jewishgemblog@...>
 

The name of my grandmother's oldest sister was Esther Tzirl Levine (Leurie) TAUFIELD.
Her paternal grandfather's name was Michal LEURIE/LURIA (or a version of Leurie) from
Lodz, Poland. Why would Esther claim, on her daughter's birth certificate
( Augusta/Gussie TAUFIELD), that her maiden name was MICHALOWITZ?

ViewMate translation request - Polish #galicia

Yaron Wolfsthal
 

Dear Group,

I've posted a vital record in Polish for which I need a translation. Pls see
http://www.jewishgen.org/viewmate/viewmateview.asp?key=VM75242

This is, side by side, the text >from the father column(s) >from birth
records of the children of Mojzes Wolfsthal. He was a tax office
employee, originally >from Sambor, retired already in 2014. His
wedding record >from 1896 is in book 79, line 39.

I am asking for your help in extracting any additional information
about Mojzesz >from these birth records. For example,
- what does the number 77 (in the 1897, 1898, 1900 records) stand for?
- is there any additional data here to help track his roots?

Thank you very much.

ViewMate help #ukraine

jbsmith1232@...
 

Greetings:

I have posted two ViewMate files that I hope someone can help with.
They are passenger lists >from my ancestors that came >from Hamburg in
Oct. 1891 and landed in New York. Their American names are Newman,
Bertha, and Louis Peltz. I believe they were >from the Ukraine in the
Podolia region, though I am not sure, that is why I posted looking for
more clues.  The two lists show their given names to the clerk and where
they are from.  Their names are maybe their real names or what the clerk
wrote?  Maybe it sounds close to a Jewish name you have heard?  The town
name looks close to several in Podolia, maybe it sounds familiar to
you?  When they got to America they had the last name of Peltz, when
Bertha became estranged >from Newman she and the kids became Pelz's. 
Bertha's maiden name (or first marriage name) was Reed. She said that
she was Polish and spoke German growing up.  Newman's death certificate
said that he was >from Padalor Russia.  He always claimed that he was
Russian Yiddish.  The name on his Naturalization Papers was Neyman
Peltz. He also used Nathan Peltz.
