I am trying to trace any other descendants of Harris Goldman, a tailor,
whose daughter Jennie died at the age of 25 in Swansea in 1915.

Jennie was married at Goat Street Synagogue but I am not in a position to
disclose her married name at this time.

Dear Charlotte:

I'm >from Buenos Aires, and it doesn't surprise me that the Civil Registry in
Buenos Aires hasn't answered yet. They can be trully desorganised, so I
think for a question like yours, it's simply not priority.
Have you already tried with a phone call ? The best way to get these copies
, I fear, is personnaly. Nobody there to help ? In any case, it is possible
to do it by mail, but it can be a little hazardous, I mean, you have to be
patient and lucky.
One idea: get in contact with the AMIA, the social affaires agency of the
jewish community in BA
It's all I can suggest.

Good luck,

Dear Genners

I have nformation (death certificate numbers, volumn numbers etc) of 3
people who might be related to be late father, they share the same last
name. I
have written (translated into spanish) to the Civil Registry in Buenos

with all the information I have along with a personal check for copies of

Letter to the Stars - Vienna, May 5 2006 #austria-czech

robert fraser <robertandginafraser@...>
 

Dear Friends -

As part of six weeks of travelling in Austria, Czech Republic, Latvia and
Estonia, I was privileged to be present at the May 5 commemoration of
deportations >from Austria.
Herewith a few comments.

The sun was shining on May 5 and Vienna put on it's best summer weather,
with the chestnut trees in full blossom. As we approached the
Stephansplatz, thousand of schoolkids were milling around and we worried
about getting a place where we could see anything. Not to worry though, an
area by the side of Stephansdom was fenced off with seats for special
visitors and "oldies" - that is, anyone not a schoolkid!

Part of the space was fenced off to accommodate the 50,000 white roses, a
veritable ocean of them. A stage and large screen were already set up and
the screen showed films of the project and previous events. Then, some time
late (not untypical for Vienna), it started. I don't recall the names of those
who participated, but there were talks by several prominent people within the
project. Several holocaust survivors were led on separately, each
accompanied by a school child. The child read a potted history of each
survivor's life; where they came from, where they were deported to, how they
survived etc. Then the survivor spoke in similar vein. Some had lived
through several concentration camps and even death marches. They weren't all
Jewish. Some were Sinti (Gypsies) some clergy, some Communists, but all were
Austrians who were deported.

Live music was provided, and two elderly sisters, who survived, played some
music (I think Chopin) for four hands on one piano. Finally, a long line of
kids walked on stage with handcards with one letter each to spell out the
words "Flowers For Remembrance" (In German, of course). Then some visitors
form overseas, mainly California, it seemed, took flowers and told the
audience to whom they were dedicating their flowers, mostly relatives who
didn't survive the Holocaust.

Whilst all this was going one, many of the audience, by pre-arrangement,
were writing name tags of victims and attaching them to bunches of roses,
to be later distributed by the kids on the doorsteps of their last known
addresses.

There were many flowers left, so Gina and I took a bunch and later laid them
at the Judenplatz memorial. Others appeared to have done the same.

That afternoon, we walked along Zirkusgasse, which contains the last
know address of many victims, and saw flowers laid on the doorsteps -
already faded >from the sun.

I'm glad we were able to be present. It was extremely moving and a wonderful
effort.

The Hebrew equivalent of Vilmos #hungary

Amos Israel Zezmer <amos.zezmer@...>
 

Would anyone know the Hebrew equivalent(s) of the given name Vilmos? Is
there anywhere on the web where one can look up secular given names and
their Hebrew equivalents?

Thank you.

Moderator: As countless subscribers have previously indicated, there are no fixed Hungarian counterparts to Yiddish or Hebrew counterparts for Hungarian names and, conversely and no fixed Yiddish or Hebrew versions of secular Hungarian names. Those who wanted to Magyarize their shtetl names might pick a name that sounded similar or began with the same letter but might as easily pick a name that bore no resemblance whatsoever. Check the Hungarian SIG archives for the many discussions that we've had on this topic and for on-line references. Please respond off-list if you have specific suggestions.

Re: looking for relatives in US #hungary

Is there any chance that your family name might have been Americanized to "Beragi"? My WEISSBURG family tree includes a Stella Beragi, who married Zoltan Weissburg and moved to Chicago. They had one son, Morley (who apparently changed his name to Stanley Whitehill), born in 1918.

EPSTEIN Family Y-DNA Study #hungary

Itzhak Epstein
 

Several EPSTEINs have joined in a Family Tree DNA=20
=96 JewishGen surname project.
Painless mouth swab genetic testing procedures are being used as a promising
tool for breaking through our genealogical brick walls. It might help you
to greatly expand your family tree, and may also help our surname project.

To the best of our knowledge, the EPSTEINs emerged in Germany in the early
15th century. By the late 19th century, the surname was prominent in and=
near
what is now Belarus, and moderately present elsewhere in eastern and central
Europe. It is reasonable to assume that many Epsteins in the Russian=
Empire,
especially in Byelorussia, adopted the surname in the early 19th century or
changed to it later to avoid the draft. It is=20
also likely that Epsteins in Hungary,
for instance, probably held that surname for several centuries.
Y-DNA testing will hopefully shed light on this issue.

We have identified members of one paternal lineage that has borne the
Epstein surname for several centuries. There are hints of another old line.
Most of the project's current members, however, are patrilineally unrelated
to each other. In addition, most of us have discovered patrilineal
relationships to men whose surnames are not EPSTEIN. Most of us trace
our ancestry to eastern Europe, and only two to Germany.

We are working on identifying the various branches of our principal cluster,
on exploring additional clusters, and on connecting our unrelated
members to cousins. To accomplish these goals and to create as broad
a search as possible, we need more male Epsteins to contribute a
cheek swab as a DNA sample. If you are female EPSTEIN or an EPSTEIN
through female ancestors, a sample >from an EPSTEIN male relative can
represent your family in the test. If you are not an EPSTEIN, please share
this message with EPSTEINs who may want to participate in this project.

To join, go to
http://www.familytreedna.com/surname_join.asp?code=3DR56553&special=3Dtrue
The basic, and most affordable, twelve marker test will indicate to whom
you are probably related. The more advanced tests could help to identify
closer and more certain relationships. You can start with the 12 marker test
and add to it at a later date, using the same sample.

If you have any questions, please contact Marsha Epstein, our project's
volunteer administrator at epsteindna_admin@...
