Was the area of today's western Slovakia considered part of Hungary in 1869? #austria-czech

morav@...
 

It looks like it switched back and forth. I am particularly interested
in the area north of Bratislava, around the town of Malacky.

If you know please reply. Maybe not to the whole group as this seems
like something not everyone would be interested in.

Thanks,

Philip Moravcik

Help with translation for Szatmar death listing #hungary

elisefmiller68@...
 

After many years of searching, my cousin has found the death date of
our great-aunt's husband, Aron Grosz, in Szatmar: 1904. It was on the
Satu Mare Orthodox cemetery list.

We understand the listing except for the mysterious (to us) phrase, "
Arh. S-M de Stat" at the end of the line. Can anyone tell us what this
means?



Thank you very much! Elise Miller, San Mateo CA

Prewar Addresses in Dusseldorf and Lippstadt #germany

Deborah Thorne <dthorne53@...>
 

I have been doing research on my family with the surname of SOSTHEIM.
Most family members were deported >from Dusseldorf in several of the
transports. I would like to locate the family homes occupied prior to
the deportations in 1941 and 1942. I have been able to locate the
dates of each deportation but am unsure of how to proceed to find
addresses. I would appreciate any advice that might help me get
closer.

Thank you, Deborah Thorne JGID#722569 Evanston, Illinois dthorne53@...
