Finding Births in Budapest #hungary

pgbakos@...
 

After civil registration, all births, marriages and deaths in Budapest were=
by District. A great finding aid for locating the district where people l=
ived are the Budapest City Directories. If my grandparents are any example=
, they seemed to move around a bit. =20

And then, some births took place in a different district, possibly because =
of the location of a hospital or a mid-wife. =20

Unfortunately, this does not reduce the need for a page by page search. Th=
e good news about page by page searches, is sometimes you find someone else=
who is interesting to your family history.

Happy Hunting

Adoptions in the 19th century #hungary

vdw_jonathan@...
 

Hello,=20

During my family history research, I discovered that my ggg-grandfather, bo=
rn Duschak/Duschek/Tuschak around 1810 in Becske (Nograd County), had been =
adopted by a childless couple in Pest. I have no details about this adoptio=
n, I only found out about it through the 1850 Pest Jewish census records an=
d the foster father=E2=80=99s testament (I then found my ancestor=E2=80=99s=
marriage record in the Pest Jewish records but there is no mention of his =
adoption or his parents, either biological or adopted).=20
Interestingly, around 1835, the couple also adopted another boy who was bor=
n Heilbrunn in Becske as well (around 1830). I haven=E2=80=99t found any bi=
ological relations between the two =C2=AB brothers =C2=BB (it=E2=80=99s dif=
ficult to be sure, though, as the Becske Jewish records start in 1850).=20

My question is this : what were the customs and rules concerning adoptions =
within the Hungarian Jewish community in the 19th century? I am wondering w=
hy this couple went the whole way to Becske, on two separate occasions, to =
adopt orphans (the couple doesn't seem to have links with this town, as the=
man was originally >from Pecel, and his wife was born in Slovakia). Would t=
here be any official trace of the adoption, either in the national, state o=
r city archives?=20
I am also wondering what would be the rules concerning family names, as thi=
s ancestor seems to switch back and forth between his birth name and adopte=
d name until the birth of his first son (>from there, he only carries the ad=
opted family name and transmits it to his children).=20
Last tiny question : what is the origin of Duschak/Duschek/Tuschak? I am in=
trigued by this name as, until now, most of the family names I have come ac=
ross in my research were in accordance with the 1787 decree.=20

Any help/advice/info would be more than welcome=20
Thank you!=20

Anyone going to Budapest City Archives? #hungary

Joseph Lonstein
 

Hi all,=20

I found a record related to my gggm indexed at the Budapest City Archives (=
http://www.bparchiv.hu/). It's one page long, and their fee for copying it=
and sending me the paper copy is $0.27 USD. They only accept bank transfe=
r and my bank charges $50 for this service. Last time they agreed to inste=
ad send for free a PDF version of a file to my email account, but didn't re=
spond to my request for this again and instead resent the invoice. Is anyo=
ne going to the Archives and would kindly copy this page for me, and if you=
use PayPal I can reimburse you for the copy and your time (presumably not =
$50 USD)? I can send you the file number and other details. =20

This week's Yizkor book excerpt on the JewishGen Facebook page #general

Bruce Drake <BDrake@...>
 

It may be a far cry >from Grossinger's, but "The Summer Resort in Struza"
from the Yizkor book of Ozarow and Lublin. The woods and fresh air of the
nearby village of Struza attracted many people to this small town. "Whole
families in search of a healthy environment would come >from far away in
old carts laden with their baggage."
