Mark,

Tenyo in Gyor megye (county) was also known as Tenyofalu. Hungarian
SIG subscribers may be able to provide additional assistance
regarding research in this area.

Vivian Kahn, Hungarian SIG Coordinator

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,

Shimson Shmuel Frischman buried somewhere in NYC #general

yehuda frischman
 

Dear Friends,

Having tracked down quite a bit on the Schwartz side
of the Family, I will now endeavor to do the same on
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
suspicion that he was >from Beregszasz, Hungary, as the
marriage certificate of his son (my grandfather and
namesake's brother) Morris (Moshe) Frischman lists his
birthplace as Beregszasz. I actually have a yiddish
business card of his, as owner of a delicatessen on
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:
About 10 years ago, I happened to see an article in an
Aguda newsletter about Camp Aguda. The camp director
was Meir Frischman. That in itself was interesting,
but what really astounded me was the picture: Meir
Frischman could have passed for my father (who's now
82, AMV"S) 50 years ago, virtually identical! I
contacted him and though his family is >from Hungary,
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

Reitmann in the USA #hungary

Shaul Sharoni <pollinia@...>
 

Dear Genners,

I'm looking for Stefan Rajec, aka Hermann Reitmann prior to WWII, son of
Sidonia (Sidi) Reitmann
(maiden name Deutelbaum) >from Nove Zamky, Slovakia. He immigrated to the USA
in 1949, and that's as far as I know about him currently. I would appreciate
any help tracing him, if he's still alive, or any of his descendants.

Thank you for your help,
Shaul Sharoni,

Who is Who in Czecho-Slovakia #hungary

Tom Venetianer <tom.vene@...>
 

Folks,

I found an interesting site which carries the short biography of prominent Czechs and Slovaks.

Before 1918
http://www.libri.cz/databaze/kdo18/

After 1918
http://www.libri.cz/databaze/kdo20/

Caveat: all texts are in Czech! but it is easy to find the names, they are in bold and upper case. and the listing is in alphabetical order.

Enjoy
Tom

Re: Post 1924 Ellis Island records #hungary

Ellis Island records after 1924 (and other ports) do exist on microfilm with
an index. They just are not available on the Internet. Some major genealogy
libraries in the U.S. have them, including the Family History Library in
Salt Lake City. They are also at the National Archives in Washington, DC.
The regional branch of the National Archives in New York has a copy of the
Ellis Island lists.

Hungarian Help Needed #hungary

Sam Schleman <Samara99@...>
 

Hello all;

from time to time, in the course of transcribing Hungarian Vital records, we
come across a notation in Hungarian that may be important to the way we
transcribe the record.

I am hoping a few of you would be willing to help out on an occasional basis
when we encounter something like this. If so, I would send the a copy of the
image, or at least that part with the notation, so that you could translate.
I would prefer that you have broadband/hi-speed internet access, so that if
I need to send you one or two images, your download time will not be very
much.

Please reply to me directly.

Thank you.

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.
Thanks to Elise for providing a very complete listing of how one can search
these records. I was not previously aware the single records can be ordered
from the Family History Library. I've saved the form for future use.
As I get ready for the summer conference and specific research I want to do
while in NYC, I've been going through my family data in the hope of IDing
marriages so far unknown to us. Although the Groom's index is said to be
fairly complete, there are several of the lads I've been unable to find
including my own father. I did find my mother although the date given is a
year off the date I'd been told. I found this same scenario for another
family member.

I wanted to mention that what I've also done which sometimes finds me the
spouse is to use the certificate number to search. For whatever reason,
this sometimes produces a match which clicking on bride or groom on the
results obtained using Steve Morse's site did not. If you're determined and
try all possible routes you may have more success. Of course for the
earlier liaisons which took place in Manhattan you're out of luck unless you
find the groom.

Best of luck to all with their searches,
