Re: Pre-WWII Mandatory Military Service #hungary

my father was drafted on his 21st birthday in 1937, and discharged 2 years later in 1939. he was a private in the infantry (after he refused to go to the air force and armour). he was called up again after the war broke out, for forced labour, but that's another story.

Do you know at what age were men required to draft to the Mandatory
Military Service?
Do you know how long they had to serve?

Re: Late Marriage #hungary

tom
 

i haven't noticed any particular pattern to when people got married, except that remarriage, especially in the orthodox communities, was much more common than today. without modern medicine, some people died young, leaving their spouse with children to raise and no social safety net, so they remarried as soon as possible.

also, if the family was more secular, there wouldn't be an arranged marriage, and there would be more emphasis on a career, etc., much like today.

I am wondering what could the reason for a persons late marriage.

My grandfather b. 1873 married his first wife in 1903 (i.e. he was 30
years of age). He was the youngest of eight children in a well to do
family. His father (my great-grandfather) was a land owner and one of
the community leaders.

Jewish men, usually married at 18 or 21. I am puzzled by why he only
married so late. There were no wars during this time, he did not
travel to other countries or the USA, the family was well-to-do, and
distinguished.

John,

There was an Isidor Schulhof born in Vienna, Austria on 14 August 1885.
His parents were Nathan and Karoline (nee Wengraf).

I cannot tell if this is the same Isidor Schulhof as your ancestor, but =
his birth record states that Nathan was >from Hungary.

I am searching for records of ancestors for Aladar Schulhoff and his
wife Iolana Kantor who married in 1932 in Deta, Romania.

Deta Romania and Timisoara were formerly part of Hungary.

Aladar had two brothers: Jeno and Geza who moved to Cuba.

Aladar's parents name were Isidor and Sidonia (maiden name Krausz)

Re: Jewish Cemetery in Kishinev #bessarabia

Dear Bessarabers,

Here is one more site about future reconstruction or renovation of the Jewish Cemetery in Kishinev.
It is >from official State News Agency:

https://www.moldpres.md/en/news/2018/12/05/18010900

Do you think it is a good idea to build a National Museum of History of Jews at the Jewish
Cemetery?

How much of the Cemetery territory will be destroyed because of it?

One of a person I know in Kishinev who knows well the cemetery, saying that it is not clear
what is really going to be built, and also it is not clear who is initiating this restoration. I doubted
that this is a Moldovan government initiative.

Hopefully we will find out more soon.

All the best,
