Obtaining Slovak Records #hungary

Bob's advice is not quite correct. I have obtained a number of records >from the Slovak archives and have never submitted payment with my application or sent copies of my passport or driver's license. The instructions provided at the Slovak Embassy website is consistent with my experience.

You can submit an application requesting a specific individual vital record (birth, marriage, or death) or request a "running account". Both application forms can be downloaded >from the Slovak Embassy website at http://www.slovakembassy-us.org/application%20for.html. =20
The info at the Embassy website directs researchers to submit applications to the State Archives in Bratislava at the addresses listed in completion of research you will receive a notice directly >from an archive to collect the payment, and upon receipt of the payment the=20
report will be sent by the archive directly to you.

In most cases I have received a response within 3 or 4 months indicating that no records are available or that a record has been=20
found and will be sent when payment is received. The Embassy will not accept personal checks--only money orders or cashier's checks. Documents are sent out within days after you submit payment. Be advised that all communications are in Slovak.

Slovak Records #hungary

peter bakos <pgbakos@...>
 

As I recall, the Regional Archives (for heaven sake NOT the city Archives
they are worlds diferent) located in Kassa/Kosice have the registers of Nagy
Ida. I beleive I extracted a Rosenberg family >from there. They should also
have the 1857 Census which is vitally useful as it gives all members of the
household, their year of birth and place of birth.

There is a web site (a little help here fellow SIGgers) which provides
guidance on communicating with the Regional Archives directly. The helpful
lady there does not speak English so if you can send your request in Slovak
it will be helpful.

Where to get a Slovak translator, well that I have no idea.

Theresienstadt in March and April of 1945. This list does not include
those Hungarians who were transferred to Theresienstadt >from other
camps during the last days of the war.
3. Those Austrian Jews who had emigrated to other European countries
and who were caught by the Germans and sent to Theresienstadt.
There is in existence for a number of years the Totenbuch
Theresienstadt (Deathbook Theresienstadt) which lists Austrian Jews
who perished either in Theresienstadt or who were sent on >from there
to the east. The new book lists all the deportees, including the
survivors.

What a good idea this new SIG!

I am sure my research is very difficult because I know quite nothing,
only the first name Hijman who arrived in Amsterdam probably already
married because no marriage has been found.

There he had at least 4 children: Emmanuel, Roosje, Michiel and Rejna
born between 1737 and 1754.

In some records he was called =93Dantziger=94 and in 1811, in Leiden,
the descendants of the two sons choose the name Van DANTZIG.

Is it possible to find a list of Jewish inhabitants in Dantzig at the
beginning of the 18th century?

Thank you for your answer(s)!

spelling of "koire" in yiddish and hebrew #lithuania

Ried Nathalie <nathalieried@...>
 

Hello,

My mother's father, >from Odessa, had the surname "KOIRE" (as in "baal
koire", reader of the Torah). I've seen it written in Russian but I'm
not sure of the spelling in Hebrew and Yiddish, I wonder for ex if the
last vowel would be rendered differently in Hebrew and yiddish (by an
ayin in yiddish maybe) and if the "i "added in the yiddish version (>from
kore to koire) is only pronounced or written as well. This question
arose because in some records the name was transcribed as "KOIRA"
whereas I'm sure that the "correct" version was KOIRE.

Thanks to all for your help.

Luis Kaner <lkaner@...>
 

Hi all,

My name is Luis Kaner and I subscribed this forun few
days ago.

I am trying to find my roots in Lithuania, my father's
home country. He was born in 1920 in Kaunas and
Grandparents and him arrived in Brazil in 1929, with a
brief stop in Germany were my aunt was born.

Altough I tried to find information about them at
Jewishgen I didn't have success.

My father's name is Israelis Gersonas, grandpa's
Hirsas Kanneris and Grandma's Nechama Felmanaite. I
collected this information >from his birth certificate,
a very nice colorful document, written and filled in
Lithuanian one side and written in Ivrit and filled
in Yidish other side.

I'd appreciate if anyone could give me a hint. I can
also try to help if anybody needs information in
Brazil.

Thanks all,

Luis Kaner
