* Jewish cemeteries in Slovakia #hungary

Tom Venetianer <tom.vene@...>
 

Hello folks,

I recall having mentioned the Virtual Cemeteries in Slovakia site (http://ww
w.cemetery.sk/english/). It contains names of people interred in Jewish and=
non-Jewish cemeteries all around the country.

This site is maintained by one of my acquaintances. He started it some years=
ago, listing the Kosice cemeteries. The site grew and now, according to its=
keeper, it contains over 1,400 cemeteries and almost 140,000 names. See <ht=
tp://www.cemetery.sk/english/?pid=3D900>. Z'idovsky=B4 cintorin means Jewish=
cemetery.

The keeper updates the site frequently using inputs >from many sources,=
including personal information. You can send him photos or corrections to=
his database data. See page <http://www.cemetery.sk/english/?pid=3D850>.

One of the interesting features is that the cemetery names listing contains=
Jewish cemeteries in small villages, eventually unknown to our readers.=
Down below is the full list of Jewish cemeteries listed. Hungarian town=
names are shown (between parenthesis). The ' mark replaces the Slovak=
mekcen or hasek.

Worth visiting.

Last June I engaged a well-recommended private researcher in Riga to
research 13 ZAUSMER families in Latvia for me (I sent him the details of
their names along with what I knew of locations and dates). Little response
has been forthcoming to date and I am wondering how long, in other
Latsiggers experience, this sort of thing might take? In a similar vein, I
emailed the Kaunas Regional Archives in mid-August, to obtain a quotation
for researching the same list of families there, and I still await a
response. What are other siggers experience of the time it takes to get a
response >from either Kaunas or Vilnius Archives?

JewishGen Discussion Group #JewishGen New York Times article on Holocaust in Ukraine #general

bette_sscf <bette_sscf@...>
 

The New York Times today published a powerful and sobering article accompanied by
15 photographs entitled "A Priest Methodically Reveals Ukrainian Jews' Fate" by
Elaine Sciolino. Over four years, Father Patrick Desbois has videotaped more than
700 interviews with witnesses and bystanders and has identified more than 600
common graves of Jews, most of them previously unknown. He also has gathered
material evidence of the execution of Jews in Ukraine >from 1941 to 1944, the
"Holocaust by Bullets" as it is called. The article can be viewed at
http://www.nytimes.com/2007/10/06/world/europe/06priest.html?pagewanted=1.

I learned recently that the name DAHAN is considered to be abbreviation for D=David
H=Hamelech, N=Nimshach, in hebrew meaning "King David (the ) annointed". This
doesn't mean necessarily that the name may have another meaning in Arabic, etc. Or
it could mean that some of the DAHANs who are not Jewish (today) may have
come >from Jewish origins. Similiarly the name AZOULY is an abreviation for a
passage in the bible refering to the Kohanic (priestly) clan.

So we were surprised to learn how common an Israeli name it is, since that is a
context he never knew growing up. We also found Dahans in Morocco and Algeria >from
the Yad Vashem Shoah site, and I'm just wondering if there is some connection?

Sharon R. Korn <s.r.korn@...>
 

Dear Hilary,

Thanks for your suggestion. I wrote to the NY region and was not aware Washington
could have a better copy. Because of the poor quality of the copy, the office sent
a regular copy plus one on which the black and white had been reversed. The latter
improved legibility, but it did not make up for the fact that the available
information was very limited. A letter was included stating that there was no
additional information in the record, as for all naturalizations prior to October
1906.

The only thing a better copy might add would be a clearer view of the birth date,
which appeared as 1866 20 Ma." The month could have been March or May, as it was
truncated at the right margin. Since the person's death certificate had a date of
birth of June 9, 1867, he could have been like many immigrants and not known his
date of birth. The other possibility (which I suspect) is that he deliberately
lied, as he was under 21 years of age and wanted to be naturalized without waiting
for his next birthday. Perhaps someone in this group knows if a minor who had no
living father could be naturalized on his own, or if it was possible but was a very
complicated process.

The naturalization was done through the Court of Common Pleas in New York County,
which no longer exists. Naturalizations were done at various types of courts in
different levels of government. The original question related to a naturalization
that probably occurred in Northampton, PA, but it may not have occurred in the
county court. The National Archives are likely the best source of information in
many cases.

INTRO- researching MORITZ, SIMON, HAMBURGER, COHEN, PLAUT #germany

NYM1231@...
 

Hello GerSig,
I have finally joined the group! I have been doing genealogy for many years
now and consider myself very advanced on the topic of genealogy and of my
German roots. I live in East Rockaway, NY, in the suburbs of New York City.
I have identified all eight great-grandparents, and 13 out of 16
great-grandparents, only four of which were German.

I have done extensive research already on the (ha)COHEN and PLAUT families, both
dating back to the 1500s in Germany, so my focus of research is not on them.

Rather, I am looking for: MORITZ- Mainz; SIMON- Mainz, Gensingen
HAMBURGER- Hanau; PERLSTEIN- Meimbressen; STERN- Altona (Hamburg) Thank you.

Lithuania SIG #Lithuania What next? #lithuania

Patricia Manning <patmanning@...>
 

Dear List,

I have probably not thoroughly exhausted all routes and am untutored
on the smaller details but I have hit the dead end with two issues in
this family research and would welcome suggestions on how to proceed.

1) >from the All Lithuania Database (ALD), I have the following
information

Revision List 1858 (Seta/Ukmerge/Kaunas)
Abelsky Movsha David head of household
Abelsky Miriam (wife) - I have no clue how to trace her ancestry)
Abelsky Shora Chana (my grandfather's mother) ~ another record about
her is a cemetery record in Krakes.
Abelsky Etka (a sister)
Abelsky Chaska (married Gold family)
Abelsky Rocha Leah (another sister)
Abelsky Abram (later on tax & voter lists in Ponevezys) (my
grandmother's father)

I know the rule of thumb in my family was that everyone is a cousin.
Sometimes this is trace-able, sometimes not. I think? have cousins
who may be descendants of Etka and Rocha Leah and I am almost ready to
throw in the towel and say "OK you're a cousin but I have no idea why
or how.". (Sometimes I have found that cousins are in sisters of
in-laws...)

I don't know how to find the above sisters (Etka and Rocha Leah) and
would welcome some suggestions...I have used a researcher in Lithuania
and while he's been quite successful for my father's family - I am
stymied on how to proceed with this particular group.

2) Another conumdrum is the deWaltoff/Cesarsky names - our family lore
and a Yad Vashem entry call Abram's wife Eta deWaltoff; the marriage
records in Ponevezys call her Eta Cesarsky.

One specific deWaltoff relative, BenZion (Benjamin) falls into this
"cousin/uncle" category. He emigrated to the US (Nationalization
paper says 2/22/1888) but no Ellis Island He was also a famous
Zionist in the early 20th century (along with his son Davye) and there
is lots of information on that subject - but to find him prior to
February 22, 1888 (NY) ...

I am planning to go to Lithuania next June and would like to - well,
I'm not sure, I think I just want to see where they lived.

(PS I know I have not exhausted the possibilities here because. there
is a naturalization record and I can get a consular record of his
emigration to Palestine in 1920.)

Thank you for any suggestions you can provide.
