Re: Tenyoe in Hungary - where? #general

Tom Venetianer <tom.vene@...>
 

Hello Mark,

The place you are looking for is called Tenyofalu, with an acute accent on
the 'e' and an umlaut on the 'o'. This is important because both accents
change the sounding of the word.

The accented 'e' sounds like the 'a' in the word "way", but with the tongue
higher in the mouth

The accented 'o' sounds like the 'eu' contraction in the French word "peu"

Tenhofalu is today called Tenyo and was located in the Austro-Hungarian
county of Gyor (the 'o' has umlaut), and in the Sokaroalja district (the
's' sounds as the 'sh' in shovel). The Hungarians do not use the 'oe' (or
'ae') contraction as the Germans do to denote an umlauted character.

If you search ShtetlSeeker with the word Tenyo you will find this place,
located at coordinates 47 32' 17 39' and 67 miles west of Budapest or
about 10 miles south of Gyor. The map can be seen at

Regards
Tom

PS: a good guide of Hungarian accented characters and their spelling can be
found at: http://www.personal.psu.edu/adr10/hu0.html

A relative was born in "Teinyoe", Hungary in 1909 according to a visa
application that he filled out in Vienna as a refugee in 1956. He is known
to have lived most of his time in Hungary in Gyoer. I have been unable to
locate this town or anything similar in JGFF, google, or the archive. Could
anyone direct me? Thank you,

Searching family names need help! #ukraine

Debbie Jurblum <debbie_jurblum@...>
 

Dear Genners,
My name is Debbie JURBLUM and I have been researching my family tree for
many years, seriously for the last five yet I am a novice.
My family tree consists of around 600 people and all have been found by word
of mouth except for about ten people which I have just recently found on
Jewish Gen. They are my first discoveries! I have recently been to Israel
and in touch with family I have never met before! Did some research in Yad
Vashem and Beit Hatefutsot but had no luck there. Just not enough time!
I will be at the New York Conference. I was hoping that there might be
others at the conference and also members of the SIG groups who may also be
looking for my families. The Paternal sides of the families are the hardest
I would have thought that they would be easier due to surnames!
My family names and towns are;
RECHTSCHAFFNER, SWARTZBARD, REISS (Lwow, Lyon )
FEIWEL, MILROM, WEKER, MELER, SPERGEL, SCHRAEGER, (Sokol, Tartakow, Lwow)
UNGER (Germany, Gurs / Escou France)
WEISS, WOLFMANN,TEICHTAHL, (Lubavetcher WEISS in Switzerland, Bielsko
Biala, Zacopagnya/zacopane(Czech side of Poland?) , Bendzin,Osweinim,
Jureno/ Juryno USSR) DRUCK/ER, MEISELMAN (Kuty,Romania)
JURBLUM, ZYLBERBERG/SYLBERBERG/SILBERBERG(Warsaw) DOBROWODKIER (Chelm)
If you have any information on any of these families I would love to hear
from you.

seeking Nachman/Aaronson descendants #general

Mark and Tamara Shofron
 

I am requesting assistance in finding any information
about the descendants of Hugo NACHMAN b. Meckenberg,
Ger abt 1869, and Isabella AARONSON b London abt 1868.

They were living in NYC Jan 16, 1902, when Isabella
died giving birth to son, Isador Nachman. I have not
been able to find them on the 1900 census, or Hugo and
kids on subsequent censuses. I have also had no luck
finding passenger listings (would have emmigrated
between 1890 and 1901. I have Isabella's death cert
and Isador's birth cert but have not been able to
trace the family beyond this date.

They resided at 14 Weir Court, NY on Jan 16, 1902.

Any help would be appreciated.

NYC Death Certificate & Online Research (was RE: Shimson Shmuel Frischman buried somewhere in NYC) #general

the FRISCHMAN side. My Great grandfather was Shimshon
Schmuel Frischman. He came over to America and
settled in NYC in the Late 1870s. We have a strong
[snip]
the Lower East side. I know that he was born in 1848
and his wife was the former Miriam Ackerman. I also
know that he is buried somewhere in NYC. But that's
about as far as I can get. Oh, one other curiosity:
[snip]
we weren't able to connect the dots. I think the
first step is to find Shimson Shmuel's matzeva, to
determine his father's name. Can anyone help me?
Sincerely,
Yehuda Frischman,
Los Angeles
I'm posting this response both directly to Yehuda and to the group as a
reminder of the resources available online for NYC research, how to obtain
NYC death records and how to find NYC burial locations.

The Italian Genealogical Group and Germany Genealogy Group websites have the
NYC death index for 1891-1948 (as well as marriages, naturalizations and
various other indexes for various years):
http://www.italiangen.org/NYCDeathSearch.asp
http://www.germangenealogygroup.com/NYCDEATHSEARCH.asp

You can also access this NYC death index using advanced search features from
Steve Morse's website: http://www.stevemorse.org/vital/nydeath.html

A quick search of the the NYC death index shows that Samuel Frischman died
on January 23, 1912 at age 64 in Manhattan and his death certificate number
is 2441.

Using the above information, Yehuda can order a copy of Samuel's death
certificate. There are at least five ways to obtain this certificate:

1) Visit the NYC Municipal Archives where you can locate the certificate
yourself on microfilm and have them print a copy for you.

2) Visit the Family History Library (FHL) in Salt Lake City, where you can
locate the certificate yourself on microfilm and print a copy yourself.

3) Order the certificate by mail >from the Municipal Archives. See their
website for details:
http://home.nyc.gov/html/records/html/vitalrecords/death.shtml

4) Visit your local Family History Center (I understand there's a large one
in LA), order a copy of the microfilm that has this certificate on it, then
when it arrives in a few weeks, you'll be able to print a copy of the
certificate yourself.

5) Order the certificate by mail >from the Family History Library. This is a
very quick and inexpensive service when you already have the certificate
number of a record that you need, though they do encourage using it only if
you can't get to your local Family History Center or don't have other means
to obtain the records. The order form is available here:
http://www.familysearch.org/Eng/Search/RG/guide/FReqMicrofilm.ASP

There are different costs associated with each option above. I've ordered
them essentially by most expensive to least expensive, assuming one first
has to fly or drive to NYC or SLC for options 1 and 2. However, for those
who can take the trip to NYC or SLC (or who already live there or nearby),
have a lot of records to obtain, and love cranking through microfilm,
options 1 and 2 are the most fun -- it's just like being a kid in a
candystore!

So why get Samuel's death certificate? It will list the cemetery that
Samuel is buried in, as well as parents' names, address at time of death and
various other info. With the cemetery name, you'll be able to visit the
cemetery next time you're in NY or see if there is anyone local who would be
willing to take a photo of the stone for you. Some cemeteries will even
take a photo for you (most charge a small fee).

Comprehensive list of NYC cemeteries, locations and phone numbers:
http://www.jgsny.org/nycem.htm

Another directory of NYC cemeteries, with additional details such as which
will take photos and the price:
http://www.museumoffamilyhistory.org/cp-directory.htm

A similar process to the above can be used for NYC marriage records through
1937. Use the databases on the Italiangen/Germangen/stevemorse.org site to
search for a marriage record for your family, then obtain a copy using one
of the 5 options above.

Good luck to Yehuda and everyone else on their NYC research!

Registration of aliens #unitedkingdom

In my husband's family papers there is the registration card of Sarah WEISS
nee RUBINSTEIN his grandmother, which she was obliged to carry and have
stamped >from her arrival in UK in 1914 onwards. This included the period
during the First World War. The card shows that she reported to the police
when she moved house or went into hospital. In the Second World War she
reported to the police in Maidenhead when she accompanied her London-born
daughter-in-law and grandchildren as an evacuee.This requirement was
eventually revoked in the early 1960s by act of parliament. She had to
declare, during WW1, whether she had any male relatives serving in armed
forces in another country, and to indicate whether they were 'for' or
'against' the British crown. She made a declaration about her brothers
Mendel, Gabriel and Tevye RUBINSTEIN who were in Botosani, Romania. We don't
have the equivalent card for her husband, Morris WEISS, but family knowledge
is that he was subject to the same requirements, neither of them having
naturalised.

I have just found my great-grandmother Elke/Anna Mendelson ships manifest-3-19-1911-NY #general

sacredsisters3@aol.com <sacredsisters3@...>
 

Hello All

I have finally found my great-grandmother Anna(MENDELSON)RAKOFF on the
ships manifest coming to New York. At first I was only able to find one
of her brothers. Then I found another brother by connecting the address
listed on the manifest on the census records. Since I have this
beautiful warm day to do nothing at all I started my search again for
my great-grandmother. First I looked at her naturalization and petition
papers just to be sure of the date she came over and what name she went
by at the time.

So I started with looking for the ship she came off of which was the SS
Lapland. Once I found it i started to go >from page to page until I
finally struck gold and found her. She left the Port Of Antwerp on
3-11-1911 under the name of Elke Mendelson and arrived on 3-19-1911.
According to the information she was going to her brother Leibe/Louis
Mendelson who I already knew >from already having found him that he was
living at 914-916 Myrtle Avenue. He came over in 1907.

I also came across a detention page with her name listed on it.
Apparently they held her for at least two days, because apparently her
brother louis did not show up to vouch for her when she arrived at
port. I was so excited to have finally found her and know I have the
right person. Now I have another mystery to solve. I have another name
that I have found on the ships list that is also a Mendelson(female)
that came over 6-3-1907. >from what I can make out on the manifest it
says that this person was going to join a brother Initial L or S
Mendelson at 862 Myrtle Avenue.

The female was name Duka Mendelson and 18 years of age. Can someone
tell me what Duka would translate to in English. I also found her name
on a detention page. She was held for a day because her brother Sam did
not show up I guess. Now here is where I am confused. The first brother
to come over was Louis/Leibe in 6-16-1907, then my great-grandmother
Anna in 3-19-1911, followed by Samuel in December of 1912. What also
makes it more a mystery is that my great-great-uncle Samuel Mendelson
on the 1920 census was listed at 860-862 Myrtle Avenue.

So I am assuming that I may have found another sibling. So, if someone
can help me with translating the name Duka into English that would
greatly help me in trying to trace her.

JewishGen Discussion Group #JewishGen I have just found my great-grandmother Elke/Anna Mendelson ships manifest-3-19-1911-NY #general

Hello All

I have finally found my great-grandmother Anna(MENDELSON)RAKOFF on the
ships manifest coming to New York. At first I was only able to find one
of her brothers. Then I found another brother by connecting the address
listed on the manifest on the census records. Since I have this
beautiful warm day to do nothing at all I started my search again for
my great-grandmother. First I looked at her naturalization and petition
papers just to be sure of the date she came over and what name she went
by at the time.

So I started with looking for the ship she came off of which was the SS
Lapland. Once I found it i started to go >from page to page until I
finally struck gold and found her. She left the Port Of Antwerp on
3-11-1911 under the name of Elke Mendelson and arrived on 3-19-1911.
According to the information she was going to her brother Leibe/Louis
Mendelson who I already knew >from already having found him that he was
living at 914-916 Myrtle Avenue. He came over in 1907.

I also came across a detention page with her name listed on it.
Apparently they held her for at least two days, because apparently her
brother louis did not show up to vouch for her when she arrived at
port. I was so excited to have finally found her and know I have the
right person. Now I have another mystery to solve. I have another name
that I have found on the ships list that is also a Mendelson(female)
that came over 6-3-1907. >from what I can make out on the manifest it
says that this person was going to join a brother Initial L or S
Mendelson at 862 Myrtle Avenue.

The female was name Duka Mendelson and 18 years of age. Can someone
tell me what Duka would translate to in English. I also found her name
on a detention page. She was held for a day because her brother Sam did
not show up I guess. Now here is where I am confused. The first brother
to come over was Louis/Leibe in 6-16-1907, then my great-grandmother
Anna in 3-19-1911, followed by Samuel in December of 1912. What also
makes it more a mystery is that my great-great-uncle Samuel Mendelson
on the 1920 census was listed at 860-862 Myrtle Avenue.

So I am assuming that I may have found another sibling. So, if someone
can help me with translating the name Duka into English that would
greatly help me in trying to trace her.

Looking for Ruth Waschpress #galicia

Greetings fellow Galitzianers!

I have been unable to reach Ruth Waschpress lately.

We had quite an active exchange a while back and it was she who is
responsible for my joining Gesher Galicia, but I have not been able
to contact her recently. She once told me her internet mail was "iffy,"
but I never had a problem with that address before.
Thanks,
