identify town of Zamset or Zanset #hungary

John Hoenig
 

My great great grandfather lived in Transylvania near Kolozsvar (Cluj Napoca) and Thurda and Hatseg. On two documents >from the mid 19th century his place of birth is written very clearly as Zamset and Zanset. I am unable to identify this place. I spoke to a woman at the archives in Cluj and she spoke to a colleague of hers but they were unable to identify the town. It?s possible he immigrated to Transylvania >from another country but I have no knowledge of this.

Can anyone help?

Thanks.

Poland's privacy law for birth records is 100 years. Your mother can
request a typewritten abstract of her own birth record (photocopies
of records less than 100 years old are not permitted). The response
will usually come back through the Polish Embassy or nearest Polish
Consulate. You can also visit the USC office in person or hire a private
researcher to visit for you. You can write in English and include a Google

Andrew Zalewski to be Guest Speaker at the JGS of Central Maryland on June 2 #poland

Shelley K. Pollero
 

A Special Event of The Jewish Genealogy Society of Central Maryland will
feature a talk by guest speaker, Andrew Zalewski, MD, Gesher Galicia
board member and author.

Title: "CADASTRAL SURVEYS AND MAPS OF GALICIA: VISITING ANCESTRAL TOWNS
AND MEETING THE NEIGHBORS"

Sunday, June 2, 2019
The Residences at Vantage Point, 5400 Vantage Point Road, Columbia, MD
21044
1:00 p.m. to 3:00 p.m.

The event is open to the public.

Synopsis: The presentation will introduce lesser known resources about
multiethnic Galicia under Habsburg rule (1772- 1918). With the
help of archival maps, the audience will be able to follow the changing
Galician borders and the exhilarating development of railroads. Austrian
maps, postcards and population censuses, together with newspaper
clippings and pamphlets, will bring to life cities, such as Lwow and
Krakow, and other, smaller towns. Market squares, streets, and
schools - situated close to synagogues and churches - provided
shared spaces for Poles, Ukrainians, and Jews. Those attending will
also 'Center' 19th-century homes to meet their Jewish or Polish
ancestors - all illustrated by Gesher Galicia's archival collections.

The advice received >from Jay Osborn, digital map manager of Gesher
Galicia, in preparation of this program is gratefully acknowledged.

About the speaker: Andrew Zalewski, a former professor of medicine at
Jefferson University, Philadelphia, is a board member of Gesher Galicia
and past editor of the Galitzianer. He is a frequent speaker at meetings
of genealogical societies and cultural institutions in the USA and
abroad. His research on Galicia has focused on the legal status of Jews,
population surveys, and Jewish physicians.

Andrew Zalewski has authored two books: "Galician Trails: The
Forgotten Story of One Family' and "Galician Portraits: In Search of
Jewish Roots", in which he traced the story of his Christian and Jewish
ancestors presented in a broad historical context.

Everyone is welcome to attend!

Simon HERZOG; Bertha MYERSON; PRIMM; SCHNEIDER #germany

Kathy Herzog <kathy.herzog@...>
 

Looking for birthplace of Simon HERZOG (14 Feb 1848 - 4 Jun 1924,
Mayersville, Issaquena, Mississippi) and any information on the family
of his wife, Bertha MYERSON (14 Dec 1849 possibly Skokie, IL - 20 Mar
1916 MS) who was related to PRIMM and SCHNEIDER families of Memphis.

According to family history, Simon's father re-married when he was
young and he did not get along with his stepmother. He and a couple of
friends became stow-aways on a boat to the US. He is not on any
immigration records I could find and census records have his birth
place as Germany, Austria, Bavaria or Poland. Some family state
Simon's father was in the military in Krakow, Poland. He came first to
NY and then to MS. One friend who came with him was named Mose Landau
and the other was either a Hirsch or Birdsong.

Simon's wife Bertha may have been born in Skokie, Illinois according
to some family. Her grandson, Morris HERZOG, recalls going to Memphis
in the 20s, when he was a young boy, and visiting her relatives who
were named PRIMM and SCHNEIDER. He thinks a Schneider married a Mr
Primm and that Mr Primm worked for the post office; they had no
children. I cannot find a link to any of them.

Any help would be most appreciated.

Thank you Tom Klein for sharing this information. I filled in the
registration form on this page for my father who was interned in the
forced labor camp on Hungaria krt 170-172. He escaped hours before the
interned were transported toward Germany. He jumped over the wall of
the backyard of the camp to the courtyard of a monastery of Catholic
nuns (Ferences M=C3=A1ria Misszion=C3=A1rius N=C5=91v=C3=A9rek) and was hid=
den by them.
The monastery is still running and I was there last summer. it was
very emotional!
