Vienna Jewish Records #hungary

Henry Wellisch <henry.kelwel@...>
 

I know that this is not exactly part of Hungarian research, but I am
sure that there are quite a few people in this group whose relatives
moved to Vienna. Also among the "new" records there are some from
certain Burgenland communities who were at one time part of Hungary.
The BMD records of the Vienna Jewish community which span the period
1826 to 1938 were filmed in 1980 by the Family History Library (FHL)
and have been available >from this source since then. As far as I know
these films were made >from duplicates that were located in the Vienna
municipal archives. The original records are still with the Jewish
community of Vienna.
I understand that the FHL began to film the original records in 2004
and hundreds of new films are now beginning to show up on the FHL
website. As a matter of fact many records have appeared over the last
few weeks and it seems that more are to come. Here is an abbreviated
partial list of the "new" records.
BMD records, Vienna, 1826-1938, with indexes (over 100 films)
BMD records, Vienna, Turkish (Sephardic) community
Proklamationen (whatever that is) 1913-1937
Versoehnungsbuch (Reconciliation book) 1921-1938
Scheidungsbuch (Divorce book) 1905-1942
Uebergetretene (Conversions), some districts, index 1868-1941.
Geburtsanzeigen (Birth notices) 1893-1937 (196 films!!)
Todesanzeigen (Death notices) 1931-May 1938)
Among the "new" films there are also some BMD records >from these
communities outside Vienna:
Baden, Horn, Klosterneuburg, St. Poelten, Ybbs-Amstetten,
Gross Enzersdorf, Lackenbach, Mattersburg, Eisenstadt, Rechnitz,
Stockerau-Korneuburg.

Re: The Hebrew equivalent of Vilmos #hungary

Prof. G. L. Esterson <jerry@...>
 

Amos Zezmer posted as follows:

"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?"

to which the Monitor replied as follows:

"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."

What the Moderator has written is correct, as far as it goes. However,
there is in fact a *linkage* made by the rabbis in Hungary between the
Hungarian secular name Vilmos and the two Hebrew names: Binyamin and
Ze'eyv. And this is pertinent to the questions of Mr. Zezmer.

The secular name Vilmos was widely used by Jews in Hungary, to the extent
that the rabbis who wrote Jewish legal tracts on the subject of the linkage
between Hungarian (and German) secular names and these two Hebrew names,
set Jewish law as follows: If a Jew could be shown by the Divorce Rabbi to
have used both the name Vilmos and the name Binyamin, then in a Jewish
contract (e.g., a Get, a Jewish divorce contract), he must be identified
(i.e., his name written) as Binyamin haMechune Vilmosh (written in Hebrew
characters, the *Yiddish* version of Vilmos being pronounced exactly like
the secular name). "haMechune" is a Hebrew legal term meaning "known as"
or "alias".

And the same was true of the two names Vilmos and Ze'eyv: Ze'eyv haMechune
Vilmosh.

So, I it is possible to answer the question posed by Amos Zezmer
positively, in the limited sense I have described. The names were not
*equivalent* but they were rather linked to their Hebrew names
statistically through their frequency of use and Jewish Law. That is, a
researcher might reasonably expect to find sometimes one, sometimes the
other, and sometimes both of the linked secular and Hebrew names in
Hungarian documents. Mr. Zezmer should be on the lookout for the given
names Binyamin and Ze'eyv (or something close to these two names, such as
Binye (a Yiddish nickname for Binyamin) or Yomi (another such Yiddish
nickname).

It is also true, as the Moderator has stated, that a Jew with the name
Vilmos could also have been given at birth almost any of the other Hebrew
names which were used by Jews -- without any special linkage to them, just
low-level statistics. The names Binyamin and Ze'eyv were special in the
strong statistical connection of Vilmos to them.

In answer to the second question, the name Vilmos (and other) secular
names) can be found on the JewishGen Given Names Data Bases web site:

< http://www.jewishgen.org/databases/GivenNames/ >

by searching the Hungary GNDB for the name "Vilmos" using Global Plain Text
Search (without the quotation marks). An update to this GNDB is now in
preparation and will contain a full set of the 500 German secular names
used by Hungarian Jews as well as about 50 Hungarian secular names also
used by them.

Re: Wealthy in Hildesheim, Germany? #general

In Britain there were Jewish domestic servants, although not enough to
satisfy the demands of middle-class Jewish matrons. Both the Jews' Free School
and the Orphan Asylum gave instruction to girls in the expectation that they
would go into service. The history of the Orphan Asylum ('Norwood') stated
explicitly:”Girls were trained in domestic skills, and at 15 they were usually
placed in domestic service.” In 1894 a Jewish Domestic Home was established in
London for the same purpose. >from the studies of the Census of England &

Re: Cemeteries #hungary

Ann Rabinowitz <annrab@...>
 

The Woltemade, Gate 8, Cemetery is a fascinating place in my estimation as
it contains the history of the community. One can see how things changed
over the years as some of the earliest stones are all in Hebrew and the
later ones begin to have English on them. There are wonderful flowery
pieces on tombstones as well as whimsical ones.

Searching through the cemetery can be arduous as the original grave numbers
found in the death records are many times different that the grave numbers
in the cemetery book kept on the property. Also, identifying markers have
many times been removed >from the rows making it hard to know where to look.

In addition, the property abounds with holes and soft ground where one can
take a good tumble as I did right onto my great grandmother's grave. Many
of the tombstones are so close together that it makes it difficult to read
them.

However, the trip to the cemetery is well worth it if you have the time to
go.

Fascinaing area, well worth a visit.
Gate 8 is always locked, but entrace is possible via the road off on the
