Darshinishok #lithuania

ELGOLD1@...
 

In reply to Dora Rees' question about Darshunishok, the SIG has recently
acquired the 1858 revision list for this town, as well as those for other
Trakai district towns. I would recommend a donation to the Trakai district
research group, which will give you the quickest access to this information.
(Donors of more than $100 will receive a personal copy of the database before
the data is entered into the LitvakSIG database). As always, donations should
be sent to Peggy Freedman, LitvakSIG treasurer, 245 Dalrymple Road, Atlanta,
GA 30328. Mention "Trakai group" in the memo field. If you have any questions
or want further details, please contact me directly.

Emigrants from Darsuniskis, Lith. #lithuania

Bobbieponn@...
 

There was (is) a well known man in Boston named Bernie Garber..There is a
Travel agency by that name and he wrote a column for the Jewish Advocate
(Boston) for many years. He also ran a driving school which is where my
husband learned to drive in the late 40's or early 50's. I believe his Travel
agency is in Brookline (a Boston suburb). You should have no trouble finding
this family if it is indeed yours.

need information about a FHC film #hungary

cohentalk@...
 

Good evening all,
I have Film#0897093 at my local Mormon FHC. Item 2 on the film is Hungarian
second/surname changes, 1800 to 1893. I need some instructions for reading
the material. What does FRUHERER name and GEANDERTER name mean? What
information I should I hope to find on it?


I had, previously, read a message on H SIG pertaining to this film, but I
can't locate it in the message archives. The film should be easy to
understand but....please help me.

Last week, I posted a long message to JewishGen regarding FHC and NARA films
of alien border crossings between the USA and Canadian. I found the series of
films contain a lot of helpful information about alien travelers and
immigrants. If anyone wants additional information or directions into the
series on the FHC library catalog, let me know.

Regards,
Linda Cohen

Here is a list of all the variations of the town name Michalovce:
Michalowitz, Mihalevich, Mikhalovich, Mikhalowitz, Nadimihali, Nadzhmihali,
and Nagymihhaly.

I have a copy of the list of victims for Michalovce and Beregovo if this helps Gyuri's project plus a list of family members >from various towns in Slovakia that my cousin and I sent to Yad Vashem last year.

The names: Samo, Sami, Samu #hungary

Dennis Baer <dbaer@...>
 

Hello

Can someone tell me if the first name Samo, Sami or Samu can refer to
someone named Samuel?

Also the Hungarian Surname Sanka could it appear somewhat related to =8Aanc=
or
Schanz?

The reason I ask, I have found a passenger list index entry for a person
named Samo Sanka and want to see if remotely possible my grandfather Samuel
Schantz aka Schanz could have entered the US as Samo Sanka.

Thank you.

Other than the family name (PARNAS) I am unable to decipher the other
