Romocsahaza #hungary

Patricia J Weisshaus <patjw28@...>
 

Several years ago someone told me to try Romocsahaza instead of the village
I was attempting to find. This person said they had relatives there. I
would like to know if it is possible to get marriage or birth records for
this village through LDS.

You may reply offline if you so desire.

Re: BLAS/BLASS Family from Bardejov,Slovakia #hungary

Hi there,

It is satisfying to see you posting one of my surnames
-BLAS, even if it is quite far away >from the area
where my Jewish ancestors came from.

For the record my ggf's second wife was Fanika Blas.
They married around 1920, and lived in Murska Sobota,
Slovenia (the long time residence of my ggf). Fanika
was born around 1900 (family stories say that she was
around the same age as my gf) probably in the
Slovenia/Croatia area. She seems to have some
connection to Varazdin, Croatia, as she moved there
after my ggf died.

I don't know if you will find any of this useful to
you (it is certainly a long shot), but I thought I
would share it -- just in case.

Happy searching,

Denise

Joseph is probably the brother of my

I have no idea where this BLAS family hails from.
There is no mention of them at the Michalovce Yizkor

But I browsed today through the Bardejov Yizkor book

Re: Yad vaShem-Auschwitz Victims-Additional Data #galicia

The Auschwitz Museum published the death books in 3 volumes, as you can see a
short information on the HomePage of the Auschwitz Museum under
Publications:

“Death books >from Auschwitz
Vol.I. Reports; Vol.II Index of Names A – L; Vol.III Index of Names M - Z

This documentation is based on the original records kept by the SS
authorities of the Auschwitz-Birkenau concentration and death camps. They
contain entries for the death dates of Auschwitz prisoners in the period
from July 27, 1941 to December 31, 1943. Most of these names of prisoners
who died in Auschwitz, documentated by the SS administration, have not been
published anywhere before and remain a historical source of unique
importance...“

In this period, the majority of the victims were not Jewish, the Death book
of Auschwitz as well as other documentations of Auschwitz speak of
a “Polish” period >from 1940 to mid-1942, when the majority of deportees and
victims were Poles
and
a “Jewish” period mid-1942 to 1945, when Jews represented the majority of
the deportees and victims.

The tattooed numbers were for all prisoners identical untill 13. Mai 1944,
72 Jewish men >from the camp Blechhammer got the numbers A-1 to A-72, on 16.
Mai 14 Jewish women >from Sosnowitz got the numbers A-1 to A-14. The first
numbers of the Jewish B-Serie for men were distributed to a transport from
Bionki (district Radom) on 31. Juli 1944. The highest A-Serie number for
Jewish men is A-20000 >from B-Serie B-14897 and for Jewish women existed only
A-Serie and the highest number was A-29354. On a gravestone >from the time of
the death marches is between others a B number recorded which is higher than

Hungarian Census and Tax List Records 1795-1850 #hungary

Eric M. Bloch
 

H-SIG has some exciting news to announce!


We are about to undertake a huge transcription project involving
Hungarian census and tax list records >from the period 1795-1850. Most of
these “Conscriptio Judaerum” lists provided data for calculating the
notorious “Tolerance Tax” that was levied against the Jewish communities
throughout Hungary. Beginning in 1747, during the reign of Empress Maria
Theresa (1740-1780), the Jews were heavily taxed for the privilege of
remaining in the empire, and were threatened with expulsion if they did
not pay.

The Magyar Országos Levéltár (Hungarian National Archives) has granted
permission to JewishGen to create a searchable database of names
appearing in these censuses and tax lists that will become part of the
All-Hungary database. So far we have obtained two microfilms with
“other” censuses and tax lists for the counties of Arva, Lipto,
Maramaros, Moson, Nograd, Saros, Szepes, and Zemplen. Hungarian SIG
copied the microfilm images onto a CD-ROM to facilitate transcription.
Records >from many other counties are also in the possession of the
Magyar Országos Levéltár, and we will attempt to obtain them as well.
The records are arranged by counties and sometimes by regions within the
county.

Although the digitized images will NOT be accessible to genealogists,
copies can be obtained directly >from the Hungarian National Archives. It
appears that the census and tax lists are available for approximately 65
counties and 48 varosoks (cities). The first counties to be included in
the project are Lipto, Maramaros, Moson, Nograd, Saros, and Szepes. We
want to thank Adam Smith for his generosity in purchasing these first
microfilms and making them available to H-SIG for creation of the
digital images.

If anyone else has already purchased a microfilm >from the Hungarian
National Archives and is willing to let H-SIG have digital images made
for transcription, we would be most appreciative. The microfilm would be
returned to the donor, of course.

In order to get started, we need volunteers willing to transcribe
records and/or validate the transcriptions. The beauty of this project
is that the work can be done in the comfort of your own home with your
own computer - no shlepping to the LDS library to read microfilms.
Because this is a long term project, we are not working against any
deadline and are not requiring any specific time commitment >from
volunteers. The only requirements are an ability to work with
photographic images on your computer and to use Microsoft Excel
spreadsheets, as well as dedication, perseverance, patience, and some
talent in reading names written in 18th and 19th century script.
Although the documents are in Latin, no knowledge of the Latin language
is necessary. The names on most of the documents are quite legible.

If you are interested in volunteering, please contact our coordinator
for the project, Eric M. Bloch (mailto:bloch@wi.rr.com).

I heared already about the following ones:

Berettyoujfalu
- Ede/Eliyahu Blasz of Debrecen, he was a member of the leadership of
Hung. Orth. Communities
- Shmuel Blasz the cantor of Mariapocs, Szabolcs County
- Jeno Blasz of Fehergyarmat, Szatmar County. He's the author of the
memorial book of Fehergyarmat (Bnei Brak, 1965)

and others.

Unfortunately I don't have information at this moment, if they were
connected to Bardejov.

Quite right. Yet if his Yiddish name was "Leibl", it is equally likely
that this what "Leivik" is meant to represent. And this is rendered

"Leibl" and "Leo" both signifying "Lion". That would make his Hebrew
name either "Arieh" or "Yehuda" (="Judah"), the latter being the most
probably.

Leivik would probably be a Yiddish name itself eg see the Yiddish poet
Leivick Halper (1888-1962) who dramatised the Golem.

Quite right. Yet if his Yiddish name was "Leibl", it is equally likely
that this what "Leivik" is meant to represent. And this is rendered
even more likely by the fact that he was called "Leo" in English --
"Leibl" and "Leo" both signifying "Lion". That would make his Hebrew
name either "Arieh" or "Yehuda" (="Judah"), the latter being the most
probably.
