Searching for surnames Rinder and Neufield in now Slovakia #hungary

Warren D. Fishbaugh <WFISH@...>
 

Dear list: I wish to locate ancestors in the vicinity of Zilina, namely
Lajos Rinder and Kadie Neufeld, his wife, probably married shortly
before they emigrated in ca.1889 to Chicago via New York city. Anyone
having information of this couple, your help will be appreciated.
Thank you, Warren Fishbaugh e-mail: wfish@usadatanet.net

Moderator: When making such inquiries it's helpful to know which resources you have already consulted. Have you checked the All Hungary Database and other JewishGen records?

Dear Orsolya,

There is not any archives in Huszt. And the pre-1895 records of
former Huszt Jewish Community are vanished. Unfortunately.

Re: Jewish Registers at auction #hungary

Andras Koltai <kolamcg@...>
 

Kedves Peter,

www.zsido.hu is run (owned?) by Rabbi Tamas Raj. He
has no bad intentions, that is for sure. Still, I was
outraged, too, to see that book being on auction, I do
not understand how the Jewish community can let such a
book put up for auction.

I thought about buying the book and went to the
auction - but have not counted on others doing so,
too. Very very quickly the price was up at USD 900 and
I can only hope that the book is in good hands now.

Best regards,
Andras Koltai

I have checked the database of the National Archives
and they have the
filmed version of the birth records at
Kiskunfelegyhaza for the period
1877-1891. Therefore the book offered at auction was
either a
duplicate
copy, or was stolen >from the archives.

Had there been no copy in the archives I was prepared
to go to the
auction
house this afternoon and demand explanations. Instead
I will inquire
when I
go to the National Archives tomorrow.

Even if it is the second copy it begs the question of
provenance, as
any
Jewish Register is the property of the Jewish
Community. If the Jewish
Community no longer exists, I would imagine the rights
devolve to the
National Jewish Community or at the very least to the
National
Archives.

The email address for the auction house is
www.zsido.hu which is
literally
www.jew.hungary.

I have no idea if the owners are Jewish or if they are
if they care
about
anything except making money.

Sorry I cannot locate more information than this, but
the idea to pool
resources and purchase such items in the future would
only serve to
encourage the theft of more such documents which do
belong in the
proper
place.

I would also like to know information >from the Khust Archives.

I am trying to trace the birth details/certificates of siblings (and
possible Marriage certificates too) of:
* Josef DAVIDOVITS born in Szinevir in 1889
* Malka DAVIDOVITS born in Szinevir in late 1800's
* Yitzchok DAVIDOVITS born Szinevir in late 1800's
* Laizer DAVIDOVITS born in Szinevir in late 1800's

Their father was Mordke/Moishe DAVIDOVITS.

I am wondering if the Khust Archives would be the correct place that would
have information >from their town Szinevir in Maramaros county?
Any help would be much appreciated.

Does anyone know a Mozes BLUMENBERG in Israel? #general

Leslie Weinberg <lbw50@...>
 

Recently I posted, asking about the possibility that my grandfather's
nephew, Mozes BLUMENBERG, >from Tyczyn, Poland, could have traveled
from Israel, where it is said that he lived >from the mid to late 30s,
till at least l945, and the feedback I got was that it would have
been next to impossible, if not impossible, for him to have done so.
I have, in the past, been fortunate enough to have a lot of very
helpful people in Israel, search to see if there was any record of
Mozes' arrival in Israel, >from Poland, or his departure. None were
found.

It's a stretch, but it may be more than possible that Mozes never
left Israel at all, and perhaps even changed his name, as many
European refugees did. Mozes was born January 31, 1920, to Jonas
Blumenberg, and Hene Eisen (my grandfather's sister). He had at
least two sisters, Rachaela, born 1923, and Zofia, born 1925. Hene
and Jonas' civil marriage certificate is dated 1920. Hene was born in
Tyczyn in 1890, to Schewa (Scheina, Sheba) Iram, and Chaim Eisen. My
grandfather, Markus, who came to the U.S. in 1913, was his maternal
uncle. He had an uncle Mozes, who was living in Czechoslovakia, and
there had been an aunt, Etel, who died fairly young. I have been
told that Chaim Eisen married twice, and that there were at least two
children >from that marriage, so Mozes would have had a half aunt
Ruchl Eisen, who owned a pension in Paris, and a half uncle in
Nagyvarad (Oradea, Romania today) whose name we do not know.

If anyone has any information about Mozes, or his family, please let
me know. Mozes himself could possibly still be alive. I do not know
why there was never any communication between him and my grandfather
over the years, but I have learned not to question family "quirks".
Mozes still has two first cousins living here in the U.S., and a very
large extended family here as well.

Thank you, Leslie Weinberg
