Hungarian Jewish Archives - Family Histor Library #hungary

I compared the list posted by the Hungarian Jewish Archives at
http://www.milev.hu/userfiles/file/anyakonyvek.pdf against the collection of
the Mormon Family History Library and it appears much of the collection has
been microfilmed by the Mormons.

In fact, strangely, there are records in the FHL collection not shown in the
Hungarian list. Specifically the FHL claims they have birth, marriage and
death records for Tapioszele and Sumeg; the archives claims they only have
marriage records.

For-fee Researchers/INFOFILE #belarus

ppeett@...
 

Dear Genners

A recent JewishGen blog announced that an INFOFILE was being developed for
Genners interested in finding a for-fee researcher familiar with Jewish
genealogical resources in eastern-Europe. This INFOFILE can now be viewed on
http://www.jewishgen.org/infofiles/researchers.htm and while it is not an
official list of JewishGen recommendations Genners might still wish to
consult it to see what various eastern Europe SIG members had to say about
any positive experiences they had with these researchers during the past 5
years. The current INFOFILE is based on inputs received >from several but
not all eastern European SIGs and we would now like to expand this resource
to cover experiences of members of the Belarus SIG. Remaining eastern
Europe SIGs will also be added ASAP.

So if you have had experiences as described above particularly with those
living in Eastern Europe (which is different >from the list of professional
researchers at www.apgen.org) please send me (Peter Haas) an e-mail right now.
Don't worry about any details at this point. You will have time later on.
All I need to know now is that you are a resource.

In the e-mail that I referred to above please address it to me (Peter Ha=
as) at: ppeett@hotmail.com give it a Subject(for example
For-Fee Researcher) and remember that initially I don't need any details
so in the body of the e-mail you don't really have to say much of anything.
Upon receipt= I will then simply click on reply and attach a short simple
Questionnaire and instructions that will guide you through the rest.

Should you have any questions however please send me a separate e-mail.
In the meantime please accept my thanks for reading this and note that
with your help we can make and improve this INFOFILE into a truly valuable
resource.

Dear Judy and all,
This is not a success case as such, but the Slovakian Manuscript that you

found along my journey into that dreadful past. Many, many thanks for

Re: Jewish soldier buried in Italy #general

Nardo Bonomi
 

I am searching a Jewish soldier born in Sokal and died during ww1.
In wich army he fought? If you mean Sokal in Ukraine near Lviv there is no
reason for wich a Russian soldier fought (and died) during WW1 in Italy.

According to family story he is buried in Italy, no one knows where. Any
suggestions?
There are war cemeteries with soldiers of the armies of Hungary, Germany,
Austria.
See for example: http://www.montegrappa.org/mausolei/mausolei.php

During WW2 there was a "Jewish Infantry brigade Group" that fought in
Central Italy.

Re: Don't depend on family members reading your posting #general

If I can add to Yehudah bn Shlomo's message about giving information when
asking a question - there are still far too many people saying something
like "Moishe came here in....." . You, the questioner, know where 'here' is,
but, we, the readers, do not. So please indicate the country >from which you
are writing and, not only that, the US state is that is appropriate.

Laws differ >from state to state - even I, as a Brit, know that. They also
differ >from country to country so it is important that researchers have as
much information as possible so that they can offer reasonable answers to
questions.

Ancestry.com has a California Death Index database online.

This may be of help in locating the correct one.

Does anyone have access to the City of Los Angeles' death records for that
particular year - or obituary notices? If not, I'd appreciate being
furnished with the address of the appropriate agency.
