Fw: Searching for Swarcz in Szeged #hungary

Catherine Adam <cia@...>
 

The last address I have for the Jewish Community Office is: Gutenberg
utca XXXXXXXXXX

The Great Synagogue is not to be missed. On the wall in the foyer are the
list of those who perished in the Holocaust. I can't remember the hours
during which it's open but the man collecting the entry fee, Tamas, is
quite
knowledgeable and speaks english.

As well, just around the corner, in the community centre, there is
congregate dining and a kosher lunchroom available to the elderly
remnants
of the once 5000 strong Jewish population of Szeged. if you speak
hungarian,
I'm sure you can gain some valuable in formation.
Contact info for Jewish communities is also on the Hungarian webpage
referred to earlier by Gabor Hirsch.

Please contact me off line if you need more info.

I'm searching for the family of Max SCHWARZ, born about 1850
Nagykanizsa,
and living in Szeged in 1913. His location is based on Max SCHWARZ
noted
as
a surviving brother in the Vienna death record of his brother Leopold.
Is there a Jewish Community Office in Szeged that I could contact

The Schmulowitzes (and Schwartzes) of Scranton (and Michalovce, Hungary) circa 1900 #hungary

yehuda frischman
 

Dear Friends,

I have not written to the group concerning our family
mystery for about 4 years. Now with the help of a
cousin who I found through this group, much of the the
mystery has been solved, and even more we are close to
tracking down.

I had written asking for anyone who know of
Schmulowitzes or Schwartzes >from Scranton, Pa, and
specifically asking about Josef Schwartz (my paternal
GGF), Mosie Schwartz, his son who had married his
cousin >from the family of New England Stationery of
Boston, and Rae Weber and Anton Schmulowitz who were
each distant cousins, the specifice relation
undetermined. I also mentioned that Rae Weber, who
passed away just a couple of years ago, had mentioned
to my sister that there had been 3 Schmulowitz
brothers, all in the grocery business in Scranton, and
that because they were worried about the impression of
a family monopoly, my grandfather had changed his name
to Schwartz.

I heard back >from Douglas Cohen, of LEXINGTON, Mass,
and to make a long story shorter, we together
determined that Josef Schwartz was actually Josef
Schmulowitz, and that he had taken his wife Resi's
maiden name. Furthermore, Resi was one of four
children of Isaac and Toba Schwartz, along with Sarah
Schwartz Friedman, (the wife of Sol Friedman of New
England Stationery) Edward Elias Schwartz, and Samuel
Schwartz (Doug's GGF). Toba Schwartz was the daughter
of Shmuel and Rochel Schmulowitz! So indeed, Mosie
Schwartz did marry his cousin Eva, the daughter of
Sarah Schwartz Friedman. I was also able to travel
to Har Hazeisim in JERUSALEM, and found Josef
Schwartz's matzeva. He was Yosef ben Baruch.

Just this week I revisited the SCRANTON 1900 census
and in summary, we now know the follow:

1. The patriarch of the Schmulowitz family, who I
suspect never came over >from Europe and who I know for
sure was Joe Schartz's father was Baruch Schmulowitz.
Doug and I suspect that he may have also been the
brother of Toba Schmulowitz (who married Isaac
Schwartz and who was the mother of Resi (Joe Schwartz
Schmulowitzes wife), Edward Elias Schwartz, Sarah
Schwartz, and Samuel Schwartz.

2. Toba Schmulowitz Schwartz's (and Baruch
Schmulowitz's?) parents were Schmuel and Rachel
Schmulowitz

3. There were at least 4 Schmulowitz siblings: 1.
Josef Schwartz, who took his wife's (and maybe his
aunt Toba's) maiden name Schmulowitz, 2. Raizy who
married Max Weber and who was the mother of Rae Weber,
and two Schmulowitz brothers who lived next door to
Josef Schartz in 1900: 3.Toni, and 4. Harry.

To confirm this theory,still need to have someone
check out the matzevas of Raizy Weber, Toni
Schmulowitz and Harry Schmulowitz, to check dates and
more important, to see if their father's name was
Baruch. That would ascertain 99% this theory.

All that would be left to verify would be other
possible siblings and the Europe connection.

Back in 2002 when I last wrote, I had heard back about
some Scranton and Wilkes Barre Schmulowitzes and
Schwartzes. Now that I have so much more info, I
would really appreciate hearing >from anyone able to
add more pieces to the puzzle.

Re: Is there an east coast US point of entry other than Ellis Island? #hungary

There were other ports of entry other than New York. The most common were
Boston, Philadelphia and Baltimore. Another reason you might not find
persons in the Ellis Island Database is that they arrived in the U.S. after
1924.

Croatia #hungary

Danielle James <daniandw@...>
 

Dear H-Siggers,

I have found out that my gt-grandmother, Malvine Prager (nee Pollack),
was born in Jaska in 1854, her father was Siegmund Pollack and mother
Charlotte (nee Spitzer). Malvine married ____ Prager (his given name;
and marriage where and when unknown). My grandfather Oskar Prager was
born in Kesztheley, Hungary. Oskar married Mela Bronner (where and
when unknown)

Jews born in Jaska were registered in in the Register book of birth of
Jewish religious community for Karlovac (for the period 1853-1880)
which is about 25 kilometers >from Jaska.

My search now includes:

PRAGER-
OSKAR PRAGER - Kesztheley, Hungary
POLLACK - (or POLLAK) - Jaska or Karlovac, Croatia
SPITZER

It appears that the family moved around quite a bit and I am not sure
of the actual origins of the PRAGER, POLLACK (or POLLAK), SPITZER
lines.

Any advice would be appreciated.

Thank you

A schochet did have to have a good reputation and be considered a

be acting properly. Many shochtim had Yeshiva backgrounds and even
smicha since they had to know the laws of kashrut and ritual

The position is not hereditary, although I suppose that many

Hello to all,

I am posting this email for someone who may be a cousin. Ed GABELMAN's
father Julius, was born in Kolno, Poland in the early 1900's. My GABELMAN
family came >from Szczuczyn. Both towns are in the Lomza Gubernia. So far we
have not been able to determine if there is a connection between our families.

I submitted a picture of his on View mate (per Ed's request) in hopes
someone will recognize his aunts and uncles. The couple in the center of
the photo are, Abram Eliasz GABELMAN son of ? and Szeyna LEIBICK daughter of
Abram Aron.

If you recognize their children and/or know something about this family,
