Re: Magyar Zsido Lexikon On-Line #hungary

tom klein <h-sig@...>
 

It is indeed a wonderful resource (also available as a replica edition in hardcover). having it online, with indexing, is fantastic, too.

but i would caution people to be careful with the online version, as it would seem that at least some of the indexing is faulty: one of the few passages in the book that i am familiar with is the article on mezo"tu'r, page 597, which happens to coincidentally mention my grandfather and his brother as the "epstein testverek 500 holdas mintagazdasaga". they seem to appear in the online version's index as "epstein izidor, minigazdasag vezeto", which is somewhat wide of the mark.

as is the case with any research, it is always best to check back with the source document whenever possible.



tom klein, toronto


ps. maybe one day someone will convert the page images to text (a monumental task), the way that the 1913 jewish encyclopedia was done, so that we could read and search the text itself...

Dear Friends,

I was prowling the internet today and was astounded to find that a
searchable digital version of Peter Ujvari's 1929 Magyar Zsido
Lexikon is now on-line at Magyar Elektronikus Konyvtar [Hungarian
Electronic Library] . Click on <http://mek.oszk.hu/04000/04093/html/
index.htm> to find this resource.

The website and the document are both in Hungarian. While it's not
difficult to find entries, translating them is another issue. You
can browse the entire work by clicking on Cimlap or go to http://
mek.oszk.hu/04000/04093/html/cimszo.html#SZ and find the name of
the person or place you are researching. Click on "oldalkep" in the
column on the right and you will find the page where the entry appears.

There have been postings about this marvelous website in the past
but I didn't realize that this work, which is an important source of
information about pre-WWII Hungarian Jewish culture and history was
fully available on-line.

Happy hunting!

Valery Bazarov, HIAS- Guest Speaker at JGSCV Meeting- November 15, 2006 #general

jan meisels allen <janmallen@...>
 

The Jewish Genealogical Society of the Conejo Valley and Ventura County
(JGSCV) is delighted to announce its November program: "Genealogist As
Detective: Solving Mysteries Using HIAS Case Files." Valery Bazarov,
Hebrew Immigrant Aid Society (HIAS)— Location and Family History Service,
will be guest speaker at a special mid-week, evening meeting, Wednesday,
November 15, 2006. The meeting is co-sponsored with and will be held at
Temple Adat Elohim, Thousand Oaks, CA.

Valery will speak on HIAS activity >from the first flood of the Eastern
European Jews in the 1880s, to rescuing the last Jews of Iraq during the
recent conflict— HIAS has been instrumental in bringing about four million
Jews to the US. HIAS played a major role in the organized rescue operation
during the Holocaust working in the territories occupied by the Nazis, in
bringing the thousands of Jews displaced after the war and the massive
exodus of the Soviet Jewry in 1970s.

By using case studies, with the help of archival documents, Valery will
discuss the scope of HIAS and YIVO archives "where to go for what" and that
reconnecting with family past becomes possible. It will be demonstrated
along the way that genealogy and detective investigation have more than
superficial similarity. Along with the demonstration of the case studies
the scope of HIAS and YIVO archives will be shown to acquaint the audience
with “where to go for what”.

Valery Bazarov a Russian emigre, born in 1942, immigrated to the United
States in 1988. He holds two graduate degrees >from Odessa State University
(1969) and Hunter College of the City University of New York (1994). Valery
Bazarov joined the Hebrew Immigrant Aid Society in 1988 and over the next
decade assisted the arrival of more than 200,000 Jewish refugees who came to
the United States under HIAS auspices.

Valery is currently responsible for the HIAS Location and Family History
Service, helping immigrants of different generations to find family members
and friends – often in other countries – whom they lost contact with over
the years, sometimes, decades. He is especially committed to finding and
honoring the heroes who rescued European Jews during the Holocaust. Valery
also researches HIAS history and presents his findings in lectures and
publications. He is a frequent lecturer at the international seminars on
Jewish genealogy talking about HIAS activities and projects. He is also
traveling to Eastern Europe (Poland and Ukraine) where he is working in
various archives and locating documents related directly to HIAS activities,
spanning the last 100 years.

Meeting Date, Time, Location:

The meeting is being held on a special evening, Wednesday, November 15, 2006
7:30-9:30 p.m.

Temple Adat Elohim 2420 E. Hillcrest Drive, Thousand Oaks, CA

All are welcome and there is no charge to attend the meeting.

During the meeting there will be call for nominations >from the floor to
serve on the JGSCV Board of Directors. For more information on JGSCV,

entertaining manner. Methods of approaching a genealogy project, or
subparts of a project, as well as planning for a research trip, are also
discussed.

Name Variations: Grun/Gruner and Stein/Steiner #galicia

Darla Stone
 

Can anyone venture a guess if the listings for Grun may be meant
to be Gruner and the listings for Stein or Steinerauer or Steinbok
meant to be Steiner? Grun and Stein are both listed in towns where
there are supposed to be Gruners and Steiners. I have found that
the listings for Groner and Grimer and Gruener are definitely the
same family as my Gruners. Are they likely to be or may possibly
be variations of the same name and same family?

Thank You

Re: Zulty #lithuania

Ann Rabinowitz <annrab@...>
 

It is a good idea to check the resources on JewishGen and elsewhere
before posting an inquiry and other Internet resources.

You would have found:

1. Zulty family who lived in Gombin, Poland according to an old registry
book: Jonas, 1842, Chaim Mayer, 1862, Sender, 1865, and Mortka, 1868.

2. Leon Zulty, arriving >from Hamberg to NY, August 24, 1906, on the SS
Batavia, male, age 18, single >from Kalisch, Russia which is now Kalisz,
Poland, located near Lodz.

3. Zulty is the Polish word for yellow.

4. According to Alexander Beider, the family name of Zulty or Zolty comes
from Poland >from the towns of: Kolno, Mazowieck, Sierpc, Konskie, Opoczno,
Wielun, Rawa, Nowo-Radomsk, Wloclawek, and Lowicz.

It may be that the Zulty family in the Vilna Ghetto may have originally been
of Polish origin and lived for a short time in Lithuania/Poland.

5. There was a Philip Zulty, born February 27, 1899, in Russia, whose
mother was Emma Zulty, who lived in Chicago in 1918. Also, an Adolph Zulty,
who lived in Baltimore, MD, in 1930, and whose parents were >from Poland.

6. The JGS of Great Britain has a listing >from the Yizkor Book for Kalish
(now Kalisz), Poland which includes the following:

Zhulty, A., c. 1890, Helper at the Jewish Hospital in late 1939.

It is a good idea to check the resources on JewishGen and elsewhere
before posting an inquiry and other Internet resources.

You would have found:

1. Zulty family who lived in Gombin, Poland according to an old registry
book: Jonas, 1842, Chaim Mayer, 1862, Sender, 1865, and Mortka, 1868.

2. Leon Zulty, arriving >from Hamberg to NY, August 24, 1906, on the SS
Batavia, male, age 18, single >from Kalisch, Russia which is now Kalisz,
Poland, located near Lodz.

3. Zulty is the Polish word for yellow.

4. According to Alexander Beider, the family name of Zulty or Zolty comes
from Poland >from the towns of: Kolno, Mazowieck, Sierpc, Konskie, Opoczno,
Wielun, Rawa, Nowo-Radomsk, Wloclawek, and Lowicz.

It may be that the Zulty family in the Vilna Ghetto may have originally been
of Polish origin and lived for a short time in Lithuania/Poland.

5. There was a Philip Zulty, born February 27, 1899, in Russia, whose
mother was Emma Zulty, who lived in Chicago in 1918. Also, an Adolph Zulty,

IN 1921 Jalos ZOLDHELYI entered Ellis Island, age 15 >from Hungary. He
subsequently took the name Louis GREEN. What is the meaning of his
original surname? (I know that the first part ZOLD = Green.)
Also, his mother possibly used her maiden name on her immigration
application. I can't remember which country has been mentioned where
the married women used their maiden names for immigration purposes.
Was it Hungary?
