Our dearest friend Stan Diamond and his wife Ruth are celebrating their 40th

Stan's contribution to the Jewish Genealogy is enormous indeed.

What has started just ten years ago in 1995 with Stan's personal quest for
the family genetic research has developed into Jewish Record Indexing-Poland,
a huge database with close to nearly 3 mln records and 400 Polish towns.

Mazal Tov, Ruth and Stan!

Mazel Tov contribution to JRI-Poland or JGen is in order!

Again, Mazel Tov Ruth and Stanley!

George and Esther Szekeres #hungary

David & Diana Laufer <dlaufer@...>
 

In the Sydney Morning Herald of Monday 7 November 2005 there was an obituary of George and Esther SZEKERES nee KLEIN.
George was the foundation Professor of Pure Mathematics at the University of New South Wales, and Esther had been a
lecturer in Mathematics at Macquarie University.

George was born in 1911, and Esther in 1910. Although both were born in Hungary, the article did not mention which
cities or towns.
They met while studying in Budapest, married in 1937, and later fled to Shanghai to escape the Nazis. They arrived in
Adelaide, Australia in June 1948.

According to the article George had published numerous mathematical papers, the most famous paper provided a key
mathematical tool for understanding black holes in cosmology theory.

Vital Records - Germany mid 1800's #germany

Geoff Kaiser <geoff_kaiser@...>
 

Dear Researchers,

I have just started the process of translating and transcribing vital
records >from LDS films for the town of Unruhstadt (Now Kargowa in Poland).
I would like to receive some advice >from others who may be more experienced
in these matters than myself. The records are >from 1817 to 1874, the town
would have been in Posen province at this time and the records are in German.

The records I am currently working on are death records. The names are just
in one column rather than separate columns for given and surnames, hence my
enquiry.....have others encountered the situation where some entries may
have the given name before surname and other entries the other way around?
Is this likely? Were the protocols for entry of the names etc strict or at
the whim of the registrar? Perhaps this is also just a function of my
inexperience in recognising that sometimes given and surnames are
"interchangeable" eg Jacob Myer and Myer Jacob.

In this time period was it common for Jews to have more than one given name?
I have come across entries which may indicate this, or perhaps dual
surnames ?? I am not sure how this could come about.

Any advice on these matters or suggestions for sources of iinformation are
much appreciated. Regards
