Re: Romocsahaza #hungary

According to the Hungaarian Gazatteer, in 1877 there
were 6 Jews in Romocshaza. The records for this town
were with the BILKE community then in Bereg County now
in the Ukraine as Bilki.

Like for most records >from the Ukraine they are not,
so far, available >from the FHL

Concerning Rich's question:

> Does anyone have information on perhaps a list of names of Rabbis =
that
received ordination >from the Slabodka Yeshiva in the 1920's/1930's? <


Slabodka Yeshiva hadn't been an istitute for rabbinical studies and
ordinations. Usually, elder students of the yeshiva used to learn by
themselves the appropriate studies needed for a Rabbi, and then tried
to get
ordinations >from three known Lithuanian Rabbis. The Heads of the
Slabodka
Yeshiva in the 30's hadn't served as shtetl Rabbis, and therefore
didn't
give ordinations to their students. So, there is no such list of

One way to close in on the REAL name might be to visit the man's
grave, and see what is written in Hebrew on the stone. A difficulty in
that is the deplorable fact that some recent headstones in the US
(I've forgotten where this man lived) are entirely in English, and
offer no such clue. Another is that those who ordered the stone had no
idea what his Hebrew name was. We were asked a question, and we all
tried to answer it as best we could given the data.

Leivik would probably be a Yiddish name itself eg see the Yiddish poet
Leivick Halper (1888-1962) who dramatised the Golem.
It may depend on what one calls "a name". For analogy, most people
called "Mike" would tell you that their name is "Michael"; I'm called
"Stan", but that is only a familiar abbreviation of my actual name;
recent US President "Bill Clinton" was known to be a "William".
Personally, I'd think that a "Leibele", "Leibush", or perhaps "Leivik"
is actually an informal "Leib".

I know nothing about Halper. I suppose his name was either Hebrew
"Levi" or Yiddish "Leib", as has been discussed here.

CZEISZLER and WEISZBERGER families #general

גירון
 

Hello,

I have posted the only photograph we have of my ggrandparents: Jakab CZEISZLER
and Janka WEISZBERGER the link to viewmate is
http://data.jewishgen.org/viewmate/ALL/viewmateview.asp?key=7415

Two questions:

1. My ggfather Jakab CZEISZLER was born on 1866 in Megyszo Hungary and lived
in Ujpest. His Brother Ferenc married my ggmother's sister. My father who grew
up in his grandparents house remembers that there were other brothers who
stayed in Megyaszo. Maybe looking at the photo would trigger someone's memory
or knowledge and he/she could give me some information.

By the way, I'm not sure all the family spelled their name the same way, for
instance my father's uncle wrote ZEISZLER.

2. My ggmother Janka WEISZBERGER born in 1870 I don't know where but she lived
in Ujpest. She had 5 sisters and a brother: Zsofi, Etel,Kati ( my ggmothers
twin sister), Fani, Rosza ( who married my ggfather's brother) and Joszef.
My father drew a full tree >from my ggmother to our time. He knows nothing about
her parents. Maybe looking at the photo would trigger someone's memory or
knowledge and he/she could give me some information.

Any information would be appreciated.

Thank you
Nava Giron, Israel
