I ran a search on RADIX, which also uses the data from
the Hornyanszky book, and I did find there a recorded
name change to Szarvady:
http://www.radixindex.com/databases/pv003009.shtml
To get more details, as to what the name of the family
was before the change, you have to be a paid
subscriber of the RADIX service, so I personally could
not go any farther... :)
Now you have to figure out which one is easier for you
for finding out the details, to use the Utah database
or RADIX.

William HERSKOVIC, of Hungary, Czechoslovakia, Belgium, Auschwitz, Los Angeles #hungary

HeyJudy123@...
 

Today (Tuesday, March 7, 2006), the "Los Angeles Times" ran the obituary of
William HERSKOVIC, who was born in what then had been Hungary, moved on to
Czechoslovakia and finally, to Belgium, before being captured by the Nazis and
imprisoned in Auschwitz.

(As one friend made through JewishGen, each of us descended >from the
HERSKOVITS family in what had been Hungary and now is Slovakia, just wrote to me
about this obituary, Mr. Herskovic probably had been called "Vilmos Herscovic"
at the time of his birth.)

He had lived in Los Angeles for the last fifty or so years.

Re: Location of ZIEGLER family #hungary

Jack Jellins
 

Dear All,

The birth records in Vienna shows that my great grandfather, Jacob
ZIEGLER, was born in Hungary in September, 1883 either in Mojkier or
in Mocfkiar. I have searched the ShtetlSeeker database but have not
found a match.

Jacob's parents were Markus ZIEGLER and Pessl ZIEGLER nee GOLDHAUSER.

Jakob ZIEGLER married Josefa (Pepi) GOTTLIEB in August, 1864 in
Vienna. Josefa was born in Zsambokret, Hungary in 1832. Josefa's
parents were Jakob GOTTLIEB and Katharina WERTHEIMER; no other
details are available.

I would like information which could lead to finding the birthplace
of Jacob Ziegler, and also information about any of the family
members.

With thanks.

Men's first names: from "Mordechai," to "Moritz," to "Morris" #hungary

HeyJudy123@...
 

George FARKAS raises some issues as to first names in his investigation of
the Hungarian female names of "Katrina" and/ or "Rina."

Like Mr. Farkas' family, the Hungarian branch of my family, after emigrating
to New York, spoke no Yiddish at all, only German and Hungarian when they
were home.

This remains true for some of the grandchildren, now well into their
eighties.

And we, too, had the name(s) Katie/ Katrina prevalent in the family.

Also >from personal experience, here in New York, the English given name of
"Morris" was the name of both my Hungarian great-grandfather and of his wife's
brother.

Yet in their hometowns in what had been Hungary--today, these towns are in
modern Slovakia--they each bore the first name of "Moritz."

And the name "Moritz" was the secular version of "Mordechai," exactly as Mr.
Farkas stated.

Again, I agree with Mr. Farkas' theory: Speaking >from personal observation,
Jews in the Diaspora always have adapted our tradition of Hebrew and/ or
Yiddish names to "sound-alikes" consistent with the habits of our new hometowns.

Re: New Film-Hungarian Holocaust --- OH NO !!! Not Fateless - Sorstalan #hungary

M & D Gordon <mirda@...>
 

It is difficult not to respond Mr. Elod's outbursts against a book, which
won the Nobel prize so well deserved as Kertesz Imre did.

I have not seen the film yet, so I intend to refer to the book, to its
credibility and its use as a resource to family research.

In 1997 I visited two adjacent "Ausenlagers" in Troeglitz and in Rhemsdorf, both in
Thuringia which were connected to the greater concentration camp: Buchenwald.
We got there following my late father's last days that he spent in one of the camps
in these villages. In order to receive some information on the daily life of the
prisoners, we got acquainted with a local citizen named Mr. Lothar Czossek,
who dedicated his life to the study and the documentation of the Thuringian lagers
and to the life of their inhabitants. Mr. Czossek published 3 booklets on this subject,
which are saved now in the Yad Vashem Library.
Imre Kertesz himself was a prisoner of one of these camps and Lothar Czossek
in our visit told us, that Kertesz carefully checked his personal memories with him
already in 1994 or 1995.
Hence the details on the life of the prisoners in the book "Fateless" can be considered
quite reliable.

Still, the book "Fateless" is a novel, not a documentary and as such, can not serve
as a resource of any family research - except perhaps through a personal verification
of the author. The same has to be true for the film - no matter, weather I saw it or
not.

Sources in Vienna - 1826 #hungary

Omri Arnon <omri@...>
 

Dear Group,

My great grandfather Ignacz (Ignatz) REINITZ, born and raised in
Nagykanizsa, Hungary, attended the University of Vienna in the 1826-7. He
was enrolled in the first year of the Philosophy Faculty in 1826 and
probably stopped studying there in 1827/8 when he moved to Budapest to study
medicine.

I checked with the University archive and it seems that while they have
Ignacz registered in the University, they do not hold additional details of
the students >from these years.

I know that Ignacz and his widow mother Regina lived in Vienna these years.
Regina probably continued living in Vienna or possibly Kis Marton
(Eisenstadt) in the late 1820s.

I wonder if anyone can help me with sources that will provide details of
their residence and additional details about Regina REINITZ.

Thanks,

Omri Arnon

Re: Looking for shtetl Kuperchik #lithuania

Assaf Urieli <assaf@...>
 

Hi all,

Thanks for your answers. It would probably be helpful to researchers if
the Kupiskis Shtetlink page mentioned that the town was called Kuperchik
in Yiddish. Was Kupishok the Russian name?

So, to answer specifically about the names of my family in Kuperchik:
When the expulsion order came on Erev Shavuot, 1915, my
great-grandfather Avrom-Yoseph Yoselovitch who ran a mill in Shavli, was
for some reason living in Pskov with his eldest son (I have yet to find
out why). My great-grandmother, Sora-Rive Yoselvitch (nee Schutz) thus
left Shavli with her brother Hirsch Schutz, a tanner, his wife Golda
Podlashuk, and most of the children (including my grandmother). They
travelled by wagons, which they had hired >from Christians in Shavli.
They stopped in a village called Bakroi along the way where Hirsch had
an acquaintance, and a couple of days later arrived in Kuperchik. Here
Hirsch was well acquainted with the village miller (was there only
one?), who gave Hirsch and his family a room in his house.

Sora-Rive and her children first rented a room in an inn, and then moved
to a house which they rented 5 kilometers outside of Kuperchik. I know
both families were planning to stay here until they could return to
Shavli. But while I know Hirsch and his family eventually moved on to
Dvinsk when the war front came near, and thence to the province of
Tambov by train, I have no idea what my great-grandmother Sora-Rive did
at this point.

Did the expulsion order in May 1915 apply to Kuperchik as well? If so,
how could my family stay there for a few months? Were the Jews of
Kuperchik expelled later than those of Shavli? If they were not expelled
at all, why did the Jews leave Kuperchik en masse in 1915, as Ann
Rabinowitz suggests?
