Researching LEIMDOERFER #hungary

Oliver Bryk <oliverbryk@...>
 

I am new to this SIG. I am looking for information regarding the ancestry
and place of birth of ALADAR LEIMDOERFER (also spelled LEIMDOERFFER) with O
Umlaut, and for information regarding his family. Aladar was born about
1880; he died in 1936 in Susine-Durdenovac, Slavonia, Croatia. In the 18th
and 19th century the Kingdom of Slavonia was a province of the Habsburg
Monarchy. Aladar was the Generaldirektor of the "Nasitzer Dampfsaege und
Tanninfabriken" with head office in Nasice and branch offices in Austria and
Hungary; he was also mayor of Susine. He was married to my ggf's sister,
Ella Bryk, born 1888 in Vienna. They had three sons: Hans b. 1913, Gustav b.
1916, and Franz b. 1921. Gustav and Franz perished in the Ustashe's infamous
Jadovno Camp (www.jadovno.org); the Jadovno records list their father Aladar
as Vladimir. Ella and Hans were hidden and saved by Dr. Boris Roic', a
Righteous Gentile. They died in Zagreb after the war.

I will be grateful for leads or suggestions. I can read German but not
Hungarian or Croatian.

researching WALTER BRYK #hungary

Oliver Bryk <oliverbryk@...>
 

I am researching my relative WALTER BRYK, b. 22 Jan 1882 in Vienna, d. 1930
in Vienna, and his wife LEOPOLDINE nee LANK. According to undocumented
family lore Walter was a banker and allegedly counted the King of Yugoslavia
among his clients (if true that would have been Alexander I who was
assassinated in Marseille in 1934.) Walter's twin brother was the
anthropologist, lepidopterist, and biographer of Linne', Dr. Felix Bryk.
I will be grateful for any leads regarding Walter, his wife, and/or their
descendants.

Re: Bela SACHER #hungary

Diane Jacobs <thegenie@...>
 

The 1920 US Census has a soundex name search, so if the name was
spelt differently you can search by soundex number. You can also
check the NYC Directories for 1919-1921 and if you find a listing,
search by address by finding the correct ED that address is included
in. It takes time, but is the best way to be sure they are not in
the US Census. If you used ancestry.com when this census first came
out it was not complete as I had found my grandfather years before
using the soundex card system, but I could not find him on ancestry.com
and the entry was clear and easy to read.

Yes, it is possible to find individuals who were enumerated in the
1920 US Census if you check the records at the National Archives or
have access to one of the commercial services that allow you to
search by individual names. I checked and did not find Bela Sacher
in the 1920 census. Perhaps he changed his name or wasn't at home
when the census-taker arrived. Contact me off-list with any details
you have and I'll see what I can find.

There is an extensive list of then-Romanian towns in the back of the
1924/1925 business directory ("Anuarul "Socec" al Romaniei-mari"), which you
can view online by going to
http://lcweb2.loc.gov/cgi-bin/ampage?collId=gdc3&fileName=scd0001_2003012200

NYC Censuses - 1905, 1915 #general

Paul & Irene Berman <ikpjb@...>
 

I thank Jewishgen Discussion Group members who sent me information on where
to look for NYC censuses for the years 1905 and 1915. I have learned >from
them that the censuses are available at the Mormon family search centers and
at the New York Public Library's 42nd Street branch.

I am not familiar with the procedure for accessing Mormon genealogical
databases in the US nor is there any access here in Israel. If there is
anyone out there who is planning to make a visit to one of the Mormon family
search centers or is going to the New York Public Library at 42nd Street
anyway and is willing to do a lookup in the previously mentioned censuses, I
ask him/her to contact me privately and I will give him/her the name and
address of the individual I am seeking.

from a slightly tense but very strong Israel I bid you all a good week.

Police Records #france

Is it possible that there are police records for the period beginning in
1914? I'm still trying to find my Benjamin KESSELMAN after he was deported
back to Cherbourg. Were there any war time rules in place?

Re: Vienna conversions microfilm #austria-czech

Wolf-Erich Eckstein <w.eckstein@...>
 

Vera Finberg asked for Vienna records of "Uebergetretene".

For conversions we have two kinds of records "Ausgetretene" - people who
left Judaism, and "Proselyten" - people who joined Judaism (including people
who left before). There is now restriction of Vienna districts but there are
special volumes for some separate places like Fuenfhaus and Ottakring, later
districts 14 to 17.
