Dear Jil,
Welcome to GerSIG and
thanks for including your hometown in your signature!

Washington, DC is home to some of the best libraries and research collections in
the world. Lucky you - the information you seek is probably right there in your
own backyard. Reference librarians are expert in locating sources for the
material you seek. These may include reference guides to German resources,
guides to German archives, city directories, business directories, newspaper
collections, government records, legal records, official announcements, stock
exchange related records, maps, photo collections, German-Jewish resources, etc.

My suggestion is to start at the world-famous U.S. Library of Congress.
Many message posters overlook libraries and librarians. Remember, the
overwhelming majority of the world's published information is not on the Internet.

(Jaross List) which was prepared shortly after (April 1944) the German
invasion of Hungary. In the list of the bokk are quite a number of Klein
listed in alpfabetic order, so that family members are separated. The list
was prepared on 8. April signed by Czitrom Jozsef chiefrabbi and Rubinstein
Mihaly vicepresident of the community, it lists 225 families / 923 person.
Otto Klein a twin >from Hajduboszormeny is living in Geneva Switzerland, he
his twinbrother Ferenc and sister Agnes survived their Father Salamon (1891)

KUPFERSTEIN/KARDOS #hungary

Patricia J Weisshaus <patjw28@...>
 

Dear Friends,

Has anyone heard of divorce in Hungary around the turn of the century?
Here's my dilemma: Ernest Kardos, in a letter to my husband, referred to
his sister "Vilma." In the passenger manifest in 1903 Ernest says his
contact in Hungary is his mother, W. KARDOS, and he's coming to the home of
his brother-in-law, Jozesf Fodor. Vilma, or Wilma, comes to the US in
1915,married, with two children . She refers to her contact as her father,
Herman Kupferstein, and she is going to her husband, Jozsef.

In the 1930 census, I found Wilma with her husband, Joseph Fodor and two
children. Also included in the household is "Fannie Cooperstein,
mother-in-law.

Was Ernest's mother married twice?

Is it possible that W. Kupferstein (Cooperstein) was also married to
Kardos? Is Wilma Ernest's half-sister? I have ordered the civil registration
film at the Family History Center for Nyiregyhaza for part of 1906 and
1907, but ths will still not tell me about divorce.

Can anyone answer my question?

Thank you to all,

Pat (New Hampshire)

KLEIN is probably one of the most common hungarian jewish surnames, with one or more families in every town where jews lived. (in my case, i am related to another KLEIN family, by marriage only, >from the same town of bekescsaba, who were not related.)

among other theories, it probably originated as a version of "hakohen", so you might find that your KLEIN family are kohanim.

The name "Baba" #romania

Claire Stuart <clstuart@...>
 

In searching Kishinev birth records, I found the birth of a baby girl
named Baba, born the same day as my great-uncle to the same named
parents, so presumably she was a twin. If so, she was never mentioned
in our family and I can't find any references to a Jewish female name
anywhere near "Baba" which I only know as the Russian word for "old
woman." Can anyone shed any light on this? Or perhaps it was just a
mistake in transliteration.

The village is Amschelberg (now Kosova Hora in Czech Republic) and the
book is:
Amschelberger Jugenderinnerungen (1855-1875-1880) by Dr. Markus Lowy (1909)

Pages relating to HUEBSCHER, FUERTH, ADLER, REICHENSTEIN, FRANK & KOHN
can be seen on my website; I have a copy of the whole book if anyone is
interested.

The book contains a humerous account of each family, often giving
details of trade and standing within the village & Jewish Community.
