Old Szobrancz Records #hungary

Vivian Kahn
 

Dear All,

One of the items that I picked up during my trip to the Hungarian State
Archives last August was Film #A5583, which includes 56 frames that
are identified as Jewish birth records >from Szobranci jaras for years
1762 to 1865. I've transcribed a few sheets and was intrigued to see
that some of the places were formerly in other districts. Here's a
partial list of the places included:

Banska, Csecseho, F. Remete (Ober Remete?), F. Ribnytz, Gezsin, Gros,
Szeretva, Hazsin, Izbudza, Josza, Kalusa, Kraska, Kuszin, Lucska, N.
Poruba, N. Szerdna, N. Szeretvza, N. Zalacska, Nyatsovitz, Palyn,
Pothaj, Rebrin, Szena, Solymos, Sztrajnyan, Tarnava, Verbocz, and
Vinna.

Note that by 1882, the district boundaries had changed and some of
these places were in Kaposi jaras.

I will be contributing the transcription to the All Hungary Database
whenever it's done but, in the meantime, would be willing to check
names if you're looking for records >from any of the following places
for this period.

* MOL's online information #hungary

Tom Venetianer <tom.vene@...>
 

Fellow Siggers,

Is there an online search engine for the Hungarian National Archive (Magyar Orszagos Leveltar - MOL), and if so, what is its URL address?

I was also told that MOL has a kind of notebook, ordered alphabetically, containing all Hungarian towns for which they have vital records microfilms, with details about what kind of records exist (Catholic, Reform, Jewish, etc) with dates and microfilm numbers. Does that information is online? If so, what is the URL? If not, does it exists in any other digital format (.doc, .pdf)?

The reason why I am inquiring is that following the FHL listing, containing all their Jewish vital records for Hungary, and published on the my site, I would like to do the same for MOL's repository, but I need the data source.

Regards
Tom

Web site for Kamarno and Velky Meder, Slovakia #hungary

KLOOGWEIN@...
 

Dear H-Siggers,

The web site www.menhaz.click.hu is a site concerning the Jewish community
of Komarom/Kamarno, Slovakia. It is written in Hungarian, but has some parts
translated into English as well as short summaries in Slovakian. It serves
the Jews of southern Slovakia and western Hungary. One can get a sense of the
history of this area, as well as its present vibrancy.

I was alerted to this site by Mr. Yehoshua Weiss of Israel who grew up in
this area. He is contributing a series of installments about his life. Scroll
down the page until you see on the left side a dark gray rectangle with
yellow letters saying "Elmeselem Az Eletem Nagymegyertol Givatayimig", his life
story >from Nagymegyer (today Velky Meder, Slovakia) to Givatayim, Israel. If
you read Hungarian, you will find a fascinating account. He has also
contributed a list of Holocaust victims >from Nagymegyer to the H-Sig web page, found
in the Holocaust section of the Data link at
_www.jewishgen.org/Hungary/Data_ (http://www.jewishgen.org/Hungary/Data) .

Re: News cite - Fake family trees online #unitedkingdom

There is a lot of junk out there and this one doesn't worry me any more
than some of the stuff that I have seen purportedly about my own very
close family. You cannot innoculate against people's foolishness.

By the way, the article cites Dan Eastman - which should be Dick Eastman.
So much for precision >from this quarter.

LitvakSIG Vital Records Indexing Project web site/blog #lithuania

Joel Ratner
 

The Vital Records Indexing Project [VRI] finally has its own home. I've
established a combined web site / weblog which will serve as the home of the
VRI PRoject. The site was prepared with a simple web page tool and yours
truly is no artist. The result is a site that is functional but certainly
not beautiful. The intent ofd the site is to convey information about the
VRI project, status, etc. The weblog part of the site is useful because I
can put up late breaking news rather quickly. The result is a site which
will be dynamic, changing in nature as I post new items of interest to
LitvakSIG members. I am told there will be a link to the site added to the
LitvakSIG web page which will facilitate access. The VRI site has links back
to the LitvakSIG home page, the ALD, and a few other sites of interest.

The VRI web site can be accessed at http://mysite.verizon.net/vzeol99x/
Please try it out and feel free to provide comments concerning the content
provided on the site.

A reminder - There are three challenge grants we are working to meet. They
are for Vilkija, Kovno and Viliampole. If you have an interest in these
towns, please consider helping us take advantage of the matching funds by
donating now. I've just received the fairly recent donations and I see a
slightly greater level of activity for these towns. The end of the calendar
year is coming up quick and for those who would like to take advantage of
the US 2005 tax year, please go to the VRI web site, download the donor
form, and send in your donation to the address on the form.

ian in names #lithuania

Barbara Heinrich
 

I have noticed that there are several surnames >from Poland ( near the
Lithuanian border) and Lithuania that contain ian in the name. My
grandparents were Gibianski. I have seen other similar names ( Lumpianski
etc). Growing up with the last name of Gibian, I was often asked if I was
Armenian. I have researched our surname in both the volumes about Russian
and Polish names. I can understand that the Gib part originates >from Giby,
but what about the ian? Has anyone every seen anything about the
combination of letters.

You should try contacting Rabbi Silberhaft. He is the Country
Communities Rabbi. He would probably know what happened and how to
find out more information. I believe he can be reached via Beyachad at

1924 F.A. Cup Soccer Final #southafrica

Ann Rabinowitz <annrab@...>
 

Based on a family story, one of our relatives, Israel Choritz, attended the
1924 F.A. Cup Final Soccer Match at Wembly in London on his way from
Lithuania to South Africa. As this seemed unlikely as the Poor Jews'
Temporary Shelter Record states that he only stayed one day before
proceeding to South Africa, I wouldl like to confirm when the match occurred
exactly.

Does anyone know how to determine when that match occurred? The record I
have states that he was in London on September 24-25, 1924.

It is possible that once I learn the date of the match that it may turn out
that the record was actually for Israel's brother Samuel who travelled
around the same time.

Thanks for any assistance.
