1848 Hungarian Jewish Census reaches milestone: over 80,000 records #hungary

Robert Neu
 

Hi all,

With this update of over 7,000 records there are over
80,000 records on line.

Actually it completes the original scope of the
project of transcribing the seven microfilms that were
made by the LDS Family History Center.

Transcription >from "Szatmar" are being added to the
record (over 1450 records with this update.) The
records come >from the Nyireghaza county archives.

Our many thanks to all those who have and continue to
make this project a reality.

Jews in the Habsburg Armed Forces #hungary

John J Kovacs <j.kovacs@...>
 

A number of Jewishgen participants have contacted me
about the subject of Jews in the Habsburg Armed
Forces. Those interested in this general subject may
wish to look up "The Hungarian Austro-Hungarian Land
Forces as at August 1914-1918," at
http://www.austro-hungarian-army.co.uk/aug14.htm.
Those interested in specific names of high ranking
officers should review the sections entitled
Austro-Hungarian Generals and Regimental Commanders.

some examples (such as a scan or two on viewmate) and/or context (such as examples of which names are listed thus) might help.

the first word that comes to mind is no" (woman), which could mean either "wife" or "married". which might make sense at a time when people (in family units) were adopting surnames, and so unattached females would have just used the name of the head of the family (rather than a maiden name). or maybe not. try asking the same question of an english-speaker and you'll see what answers you might get for a single letter.

afterwards. Since it's always an N and no other letter, we're assuming
this has some particular meaning. It seems unlikely that it simply
means no surname since other single names are not followed by "N."
Perhaps it has something to do with the registration of surnames. Does
anyone know the significance of the N? Thanks.

New Film-Hungarian Holocaust #hungary

Today the film "Fateless" opens in Canada. It is based on the book
(Fatelessness) by Imre Kertesz... about his experiences in the camps. So
far it has had very positive reviews.

N.N. is often for anonymus or unknown name, I would expect that it is for an
unknown given name. My Hungarian-English vocabulary lists also only N.N.
under common abbreviations as ismeretlen nevu" or anonymous.

Equivalent names #lithuania

ligedit@...
 

Various people in my family had some of the names that Margaret
Fullarton was asking about. Bernard/Barnard/Barnett were various
translations of the Hebrew/Yiddish name of Beryl. Harris was a
variation of Gershon, which I assume had become Gershon/Hersch/Harris.
Ettie was a nickname for my grandmother whose name was Yetta/Ethel.
I hope this helps.

Dear list,

Just posted to www.ynetnews.com is Schelly Talalay Dardashti's
"Bridge to the Past: Celebrating 10 centuries of vibrant Jewish
life." The story is about Professor Yaffa Eliach, a pioneer of
Holocaust studies in America and one of 29 survivors of Eishyshok
(Lithuania, Poland, Russia). Eliach's Shtetl Foundation has just
begun the first of three phases in the construction of The Shtetl:
The Living History Museum of the Jewish World, in Rishon
Lezion, south of Tel Aviv.
http://www.ynetnews.com/articles/0,7340,L-3212102,00.html

Also at ynetnews are Jewish genealogy events for February, listing
events of JFRA Israel, Israel Genealogical Society and the Galil
Society, including relevant international events. Happenings include
a visit by genealogist/author Dr. Neil Rosenstein, a Turkish diary,
two archive field trips, Philadelphia resources and a Jewish genealogy
class.

<there is a very interesting photo of children in a Tarbut school

<The ViewMate&nbsp; address is

I have seen the photo posted by Barry and it is an exceptional
photo. Of particular interest is the straw roof on the wooden house

Tarbut school was in Pumpian but some of the students may have
lived in a nearby shtetl. If anyone can identify students in the
photo who were >from Pusalotas, the shtetl next door to Pumpenai,
