I happened to come across this link.

It is a Mormon film containing lists of emigrants >from Ung county 1900-1930

It may be useful for researchers of the area but more imortantly,
there may be other counties that have passport applicatoin records.

Weinberger/Neumann #hungary

I've been trying for quite some time to locate certain members of my
mother's family in Budapest. I recently had a bit of a breakthrough when
Budapest records were put on line, and located the marriage records of my
mother's cousin and his father (second marriage) , something a private
researcher and my own private search at the Budapest Jewish community
records had failed to reveal. I would be glad if anyone has any further
information on these people - sometimes networking can really help!
I. Gabor Singer, son of Imre Singer and Jeannette/Janka Singer, b. 13
Dec. 1920 in Budapest.
Married Margaret Weinberger, daughter of Abraham Weinberger and Matild
Bruszt, b. 21 March 1922
Date of marriage - 11 November 1940, district VII Budapest
Gabor was drafted six months later into a labor battalion and never
returned. His mother, who was spared deportation because her 2nd husband was
a war veteran and amputee, managed to hide Margaret and thus save her life.
Margaret remarried, and I am interested in finding details of her new
marriage and family.
II. Imre Singer, son of Maximilian Singer (Miksa) and Fanny Meisel.
Probably born in Vienna.
Married Aranka Neumann, daughter of Armin Neumann and Gizella Kuenstler on
29 July 1934 - his second marriage. He had at least one child >from this
marriage, and a grandson called Jeno.

Schonfeld from Chtelnica, Slovakia or Vittencz, Hungary #hungary

gary.karlin@...
 

Thanks to all of you who have helped on my family tree! I have moved a
little closer to knowing my family a little better. I found a lot of
records on Gesu/Geza/Guslaf/Gus Schonfeld. Now, for his father
Jozef/Jozsef Schonfeld, I found a birth year 1840/1 and his wife Fani
Glas 1844 on Hungarian Census 1869 and on wedding registry (seen here
- https://familysearch.org/pal:/MM9.3.1/TH-1-9816-21991-49?cc=1554443&wc=12755180).
I can barely read the handwriting. On some of these records, the
father's and mothers names are written. This would be extremely
helpful, since I can not locate their birth records in
Chtelnica/Vittencz.

I'm looking for their birth record, or at least their parents. HELP!!!

Hello everyone,

The surname TAITAZAk (phonetic spelling) was particularly found in
Salonika, Greece.
The surname is not of Spanish, nor of Greek origin.
The Dictionary of Sephardic Surnames (by Faiguenboim et al, 2002)
indicates that the surname of Hungarian origin.
If so, in which language it is and what does it mean,
All along the history of the Jewish community of Salonika, beginning
with the arrival of exiles >from Spain after 1492, small groups of
Ashkenazim, came and settled there and, with time, were absorbed in
the community.

I didn't find it as such in any of the H-SIG Databases.

Many thanks in advance for any clue.

I might have some family relatives in England.
My father's cousin , a young woman ,surname EHERLICHMAN or HERLICHMAN went

My father did not remember her private name, or in what university in
England she studied.
My father was a Polish soldier >from 1937 he was away >from home and did not
know what happened to her during the war: did she returned home or stayed in
England, and built a family there under another name.
I do not know how to look for her or for her descendants.
Are there lists of students in the universities in England ? are those lists

Is there a list of foreign citizens sating in England during the war?
Can you advise me where to go >from here?
A lot of thanks,

Two magnificent sources for New York records! #general

Martha Forsyth
 

One of these I had known about, but always forget. That is
http://www.italiangen.org/ - which has comprehensive databases (not only
Italian) for New York. I've found things there that I can't find
anywhere else.

But the other, http://www.fultonhistory.com/Fulton.html, is new to me.
It starts out looking like a site devoted to old post cards and yes,
they do have a ton of them - but there's also a large collection of
"Over 18,269,000 Old New York State Historical Newspaper Pages" where
you might - as I did - find interesting items in New York newspapers
about your loved ones. One word of warning: the pages themselves are
large pdf files and slow to open. Don't try to open a lot at once, or
you'll probably crash your browser!

Thank you to the several people who pointed me at these databases.

Ukraine SIG #Ukraine Fw: Ukrainian relatives in Argentina #ukraine

visionforall2020@...
 

Dear Ukraine SIG
My grandfather emigrated >from the town of Polonnoye in the Volhyn, Ukraine,
to Boston in 1896. One of his sisters and her family emigrated to Buenos
Aires, probably at the same time. The only evidence that I have of the
sister and her family are two post cards, sent to my grandfather >from Buenos
Aires in 1925 by his sister's sons. Each post card has a photo of family
members on one side and a message on the other. One message is written in
Hebrew and one in Yiddish. I have had both of them translated. The
translation gives the names as: Ben Zion Schneider and Yehoshia Schnelwertz.
Another person's translation read the names as: Ben Zion Shneebart or
Schneeberg and Joshua Shteinberg. I also have a group photo showing many
family members (including the ones on the postcards).

I would like very much to find the descendants of my grandfather's sister.
Can anyone help me? I would be happy to send copies of the post cards and
the family photos. I would also be happy to pay research fees, if necessary.
If you have any online information that might be helpful to me, I would
appreciate receiving links.

Ariel Parkansky
 

Hi everybody,

It's been a time since I've given you the last news about Odessa
(I've been a little busy lately working on the restructuring of the
Ukraine website). This doesn't mean that nothing has happened in the
meantime.

Isabelle has this time written about the biography and works of Mendele
Moykher Sforim - pen name of Sholem Yacov Abramovich -, the
"grandfather" of modern literature in Hebrew and Yiddish.
You'll find the article under the "Art & Culture" topic of the "Life
in Odessa" section.
Many thanks to Isabelle for this great article.

There is more material >from Alex Gliksberg coming soon.

As always, new records and documents are added frequently to the All
Odessa Database. In the last 60 days 137 new scanned documents and 471
translated records have been added. Thanks again to the researchers
who had donated their documents and to the volunteers that work on
the translation and indexing of the documents.

If you have documents, photos or articles about Odessa to share with
us, please contact me.
