Payment to bank in Rzeszow for archives request #general

Rod MacNeil
 

Hi everyone: I requested a document >from the Przemysl archives. The archives
staff sent me a pdf copy and requested payment of a small amount of zloty to
the National Bank of Poland branch in Rzeszow. Has anyone had experience
sending money to this bank or a similar financial institution in a regional
Polish town? I'd appreciate any guidance on how you made the funds transfer.

Thanks,

Rod MacNeil

Genealogy Cookbook #general

Stephen Denker
 

How can we create a family genealogy book -- one filled with facts and most
importantly -- one that will be read and treasured? We produced a family
cookbook. We solicited family members to contribute their own special recipes.
Besides our family history and our family tree -- we included birthday,
anniversary and wedding dates; photos and cartoons. We used a reusable binding,
to let us insert additional recipes and new pages for birth­s and other
noteworthy events as our family grows and grows.

New data #hungary

smartlines@...
 

In the past few months I have indexed the registers of Veszprém,
Székesfehérvár, Pécs Lovasberény and arbitrated Pöstyén. For reasons unknown
for me these spreadsheets have not found their way to the JG database.

Moderator: JewishGen has experienced problems with uploading data to the website due
to staff changes. We anticipate getting this corrected very soon. In the meantime,
if you have transcribed records please make sure they have been submitted to the
appropriate project coordinator--Sarah Feuerstein for Vital Records, Eric Bloch for
census records, and Sandy Malek for Maramures records.

Hungarian teenager's diary discovered in Israeli archive #hungary

Marta Fuchs
 

Author Helen Epstein thought this would interest the membership:

This morning I experienced one of the most moving consequences of writing a memoir. An archivist in Israel wrote me this:
I recently found in our archive an original diary in Hungarian written by a young girl. The diary was written during the Holocaust and the girl`s name was Judith Ornstein. The diary begins on March 29, 1944 and ends on September 13, 1944. After we translated the diary to Hebrew and I read it, I began looking for details about Judith and about her family online. >from the Internet search I came across her brother`s name, Dr. Paul Hermann Ornstein who survived the war and settled in the United States....

During my search I came across the Memoir of Paul that he wrote with you. I understand >from my internet search that you know the family and you're in touch with them...I would like to contact them and ask if they would like a copy of the diary that we might be able to give to them. See: LOOKING BACK: Memoir of a Psychoanalyst

According to Helen, the young girl was killed in a bombing of the house in which her diary was found and no one knew she kept a diary, as far as Helen knows.

Abraham GREENSTONE #lithuania

Angie Elfassi
 

Hi,

Abraham GREENSTONE, born c. 1884 in Leeds, the son of Hanoch/Genoch/Henry
GREENSTONE or GREENSPAN b. c. 1850 or other various spellings, born
in Latvia or Lithuania. His brothers were Max KASSEMOFF b. c. 1860 d. 1939
and Leiser MULVIDSON b. c. 1845 d. 1909. The three had different surnames
to avoid conscription in Russia.

He married Mary FINESTONE (SHUSTER) and possibly Etty SEGELIN.

Judith MILLER and Helen SCHELEFF posted stuff connected to Abraham
GREENSTONE on MyHeritage. I dont have access to MyHeritage but hope that
either of these ladies read JewishGen/LitvakSIG emails, or someone
who knows them could please forward my email to them.

Thanks in advance.

ViewMate translation request - German - Peter Reinitz in Moravia. at last! #austria-czech

omri@...
 

Dear Group,

I think that at last I managed to solve one of my highest brick walls which
is bothering me since I (and my late father before me) started to research
my Hungarian roots.

For years I have been trying to find the connection between Moravia where my
GGGGF Peter REINITZ came >from to Hungary around 1800. Finally I think I have
managed to break the brick wall. In the "Hranice Book of changes in land
holdings" I found several pages describing changes in holding of a house in
Hranice relating to Peter REINITZ. It seems that Peter or his family had a
strong connection to Bonyhad. Later or in parallel he lived in Nagykanizsa
(Canisha/Canisa). I am posting two parts of a short document signed by a
medical Doctor. I would very much appreciate a translation of this document
which is posted here:
