Jordan,

some days ago, you listed info on the Ellis Island Foundation as it was a
going conern with genealogy info. As I have been to Ellis Island, a while
back, and had made a generous contribution to the Islands Wall of Honor, in
order to have my mother's and grandparent's names to appear. While there, I
noticed some names on wall , similar to our family. I punched in the name, and
up came the individual who made the contribuion and the city they are located
in. Currently, Ellis Island organization is trying to obtain substantial funds
to start a data base of those you made a contribution, however, what that data
base may entail is unknown to me.

ALEX M P MILLER <alexm6@...>
 

Hello all!
Gotta hear this!

I visited a relative in New York (father's side). In my photo album she
saw a picture of my grandmother (>from my mother's side) that got her very
excited as she claimed that that person looks familiar.

To claim knowledge of an unrelated woman, >from a different village,
after 55 years, sounded to me like a good story to cap off a long day.
Yet she was adamant and explained to me that she commuted on a local
train in Hungary in 1943 with a particular woman that was carrying geese
to the market. Since she had more geese than allowed on the train my
relative shared the load. This woman and the one in my picture just
looked too much the same.

Did you guess? It turned out to be true and I found a lead on the Roth
family that I had absolutely no information on.

Best regards, Szervusz

Does the H-sig have a digest mode where all messages are held for
a day and then either forwarded, or posted in a data base so that
they can be retrieved on request? You would have a hard time
managing a selective retrieval, but, retrieving each day, at your
option, would seem to be feasible. Of course, "sending to all"
on a daily basis would probably be easiest to administer. Either
process would reduce what I call the "snow flakes" problem.

Hungary SIG #Hungary The Journey to Vaja #hungary

ALEX M P MILLER <alexm6@...>
 

Hello all!

The Journey to Vaja Elaine Naves
When the World was Whole Charles Fenyvesi

Two remarkable books, two remarkable authors!

Here is one remarkable question: Never mind that these two authors are
cousins and certainly interested in Hungarian genealogy, the question is
why are they not in our discussion group?

The following could be old news in August 1998, however when The Journey
to Vaja was published, Elaine had missed people that Charles had on his
version of the family tree.

Is anyone in contact with Elaine? She might just discover a whole bunch
of new relatives including live ones!

Best regards, Szervusz

The2thdkdr@...
 

My paternal grandfather comes >from Varanno (now Vranov, Slovakia). This is in
Zemplen County. I have checked the LDS catalog and so far they have only
listed birth records for his town and province. I am interested in marriage
records and death records as well. Perhaps LDS has not yet microfilmed all
the records that are in existence. I am thinking of taking a trip to Slovakia
this September. Would anyone know where the vital records of Vranov are
located? Would they be in the town or is there a county archive?
Secondly, my paternal grandmother is of Hungarian Jewish ancestry as well. I
have yet to locate her town of origination. It is most likely she comes from
one of the northeast counties , i.e. Zemplen, Saros, or Ung. Does anyone know
where the archives for Saros County and Ung County are located? Wayne Roth,
