Re: Jewish records in Catholic parishes #hungary

Dear Judy,
I noticed that you had Grossman in your family. I believe my
ancesters Mendel & Raisa (Rose) Grossman came >from the
county of Saros. I was wondering if we might have a family
connection. I know it was a huge family. My great-
grandmother, Dvora (Dora) Grossman was one of their
children. They came into this country sometime in the mid-
1880s. Most of our Grossman family are buried in a Hungarian
section of Mt. Hebron in NYC.

Thanks for any help.

Re: tombstone protection #hungary

I presume that every tombstone sculptor should be able to recommend proper
material, but I believe it is less the job of a do it yoursever,
preservation should be done by a professional who knows about stone mareial
as well as suitable chemicals.

Hello friends,

A few years ago we had an exchange regarding chemical protection for
tombstones. The opinions were all negative, saying that any chemical
contact will just further deteriorate the fragile stone

I just came across a stone in a small village cemetery in Szabolcs county
dating back to 1892. It has a lacquer-like, transparent coating similar
to something I've seen on the stones of famous rabbis in the indoor
burial(ohel?) in Nyiiregyhaza.

This 1892 stone is in unbelievable shape (see viewmate #-VM7242) at:
http://data.jewishgen.org/viewmate/toview.html

How can we find out about this? What is it, how can it be purchased,
applied, is someone doing this kind of work?

Best Regards,

Alex Miller, Chester CO. PA

*re: LDS films of German non-Aryan Census 1939 #hungary

Tom Venetianer <tom.vene@...>
 

Hello Genners,

Jonathan found a goldmine for those researching German ancestry. The Mormons have almost 60 German locality entries of the 1939 minority census - and 132 films, which basically contained almost Jews only.

The index of localities can be found in film # 1742516. Sudetenland is included.

The way to find those records is either to use the FHL keyword search feature with the words " Deutschland Reichssippenamt " or the link below:

http://www.familysearch.org/Eng/Library/fhlcatalog/supermainframeset.asp?display=authordetails&authorno=389649&name=Deutschland%2E+Reichssippenamt%2C+null&columns=*,0,0

Good hunt

Apparently, the Nazis took a census in 1939 of non-Aryans living in Germany, and this has been filmed by the Mormons. The census information includes all household members with place and date of birth.

Homonna (Humenne today in Slovakia) is in the trans-Carpathia region of what
was northern Hungary--Zemplen Megye--but is now in Slovakia.
I have family connections there also. There is some excellent shtetl

recommended researcher in Lithuania #lithuania

Todd Brody
 

I recently hired a guy in Lithuania to go through the
vital records of Telsiai for me. I found his name on
a different Lithuanian genealogy website. He did a
nice job and found the death record of my
great-grandmother and the birth records of my
grandfather and many of his siblings. He charged me
reasonably for the work and for each copy of the records.
Interestingly, the vital records for Telsiai are in
both Russian and Hebrew.

The records I had him look for are located in Vilnius,
where he lives. I am now thinking of having him go to
the Kaunus archives and do some additional research
for me, although his fee is higher for Kaunus research
because he needs to travel. He was also able to
answer a lot of questions that I had about Lithuania
in general. His English is pretty good.

I decided to use him because I am not going to
Lithuania anytime soon and the archives in Vilnius
told me that there is a 1-2 year waiting time for
letter requests. If you are looking for someone to go
through records for you, I would highly recommend him.

If you write me privately, I will be glad to give you
his name and details of his services.

Mendelson /Rudnia/ Shmotkin and the Warsaw Cemetery #poland

Eilat Gordin Levitan
 

Dear all,
I would like to thank Yisroel Szpilman, director of the Jewish
Cemetery in Warsaw, who registered about 27.200 graves.
On the list I found the name Shmuel Rudnia. Shmuel was the grandfather
of the Shmutkin, Mendelson, Halberstat, Klotz and Rudnia families of
the Vilna region and Warsaw. Most of the family perished in the
Holocaust or lost touch in the Soviet Union without any trace. Only
known survivors live in Israel.

Thanks to Mr. Szpilman we now have 3 pictures of the grave stone with
information ( born in Ilja in 1867 to Zvi Rudnia, passed away in 1928
in Warsaw) . We received the attached pictures only hours after we
emailed the original request.

turnaround of your photos.

My mother is a Shoah survivor >from Lublin, Congress Poland, latkes
still are her favorite food.

According to Mom, her mother made latkes >from potatoes, a small
onion, w/wo an egg, TBSP of flour, salt, pepper if desired and fried in
oil. My mother always eats her latkes plain, her siblings (who were
killed in the Holocaust), ate the latkes with sour cream.
According to Mom, latkes were also eaten with sugar,but not in her home.
In Jewish Lublin, latkes were never eaten with applesauce.
