Dear Researchers

I would like to bring to your attention the following information
on the Mormon site. I am a researcher and often work at the
Felix Archive in Antwerp which has the files of foreigners having
lived in the city dating back to 1840 until 1930. Many of the
foreigners in the Indexes, especially in the first part of the XXth
Century, were Jewish and came >from Eastern Europe.

The files exist for all foreigners even if they only spent a short
time in the city. The indexes of names, file numbers, date and
place of birth are found in the Foreigner Indexes which could
previously be accessed directly >from the Felix Archives, however
they can now be viewed directly >from the Mormon site with a
name search. The explanatory notes and information can be
found on the Mormon site itself.

Tel Aviv Burial Records for Joachim TEICHMAN from Chodorow? #poland

osborn@...
 

Good morning.

First, let me thank all those who have jumped in to
help me in my continuing quest to reconstruct and try to
understand the events in the life of my great aunt
Julia HORN of Rohatyn. Because of this, I have finally
learned, as of this morning, the name of her TEICHMAN
husband: Joachim (Haim Joachim) TEICHMAN, born in 1909,
most likely in Chodorow, Poland to parents Mordechai and
Devorah TEICHMAN. Julia and Joachim arrived in Palestine
in September 1934 - together - but on separate Aliyah
Polish Passports.

I also learned today that Joachim died in 1993 in Tel Aviv,
Israel.

My quest now is to discover where in Israel he is buried.

It was through a posting to this group that I learned
about a year ago that Julia's younger sister Bronia
HORN is buried at Kfar Saba - I would not have been able
to discover this information for myself if it hadn't been
for the handful of researchers who generously replied to my
posting....and even went to Kfar Saba to shoot photos of her
grave. I am so grateful.

May I impose again for such selfless assistance?

Are there any online Israel burial databases to help
me in my continuing research?

Warm regards,

In my family, the familiar/shortened name in Europe was Tsollie.
In the US, all Betzalels in my family became Charlies (Charles).

Emigrating twice to USA? #general

Alaine Simpson <bumberbidus@...>
 

Recently I have discovered a family member, my grandfather's brother, who
emigrated alone to the US in 1906, and again in 1912 with his wife and
children. Both cases are documented, and his grandson confirms that this
man did indeed go back to Ukraine, and may even have emigrated a third time.

The reason given was that he simply couldn't find a synagogue which was
strict enough for him. I know that people who emigrated first saved up and
brought over their families, sometimes years later. But does anyone else
have an instance of multiple emigration, and would the reason given be a
valid one?

place of registration as place of birth #general

Herbert Lazerow
 

It is with hesitation that I disagree with Howard Margol, who knows much
more about Lithuanian practice than I do. But his answer, that a person
listed in an 1887 census as registered in Vizdy was probably born there,
makes assumptions counter to my understanding of the registration system.
Here is how registration was supposed to work.

Probably around 1800, a person was registered to a class (merchant, townsperson,
peasant, noble, soldier) and to a place.

A person's children had the same registration as their father. When she
married, a woman took the registration of her husband.

Registration could be changed, but that took money (unless you served a full
term in the military), which was in short supply in the Jewish community.

So what the place of registration tells you is where the person's
paternal male ancestor lived around 1800. If the person was 90 in 1887,
I agree that it was likely that he was born in Vizdy. If the person was 40
in 1887, it does not tell that he was born in Vizdy (though Vizdy and the place
he was residing in 1887 would be my two leading candidates).

Searchable 1943 Hungarian Directory #hungary

viviankahn@...
 

Logan Kleinwaks has added the 1943 Hungary Telephone Directory
and the Business Directory to the collection of searchable
directories on his fabulous Genealogy Indexer website
< http://genealogyindexer.org/directories >.

This means means the directory can be searched >from within
genealogyindexer.org, and search results link to the appropriate
pdf and page on archive.org.
Because we have not yet identified the person / organization
that uploaded the scans to the Internet Archive, the
images themselves are not on the Genealogy Indexer website.
If anyone has this information, please contact Logan
and he will try to get permission to host the images,
which would allow him to highlight matching text directly
on the images and also load only the single matching page,
rather than the entire multi-page pdf. This would, of
course, be a big help especially for anyone with slow
Internet connections.

The description on archive.org refers to an organization
called WJLF, which could be the John Wesley Theological College
in Budapest < http://www.wesley.hu/ >.

If you can help to connect Logan with someone at this institution
who might be able to give him the permission he needs to upload
images, please contact me or Logan off-list.

In addition to the 1943 Directory Other directories of possible
interest to H-SIGrs that are available for searching at
