Searching: GNISHER & FINKLESTEIN families #general

Michael Trapunsky <trapunsky@...>
 

Hi all,

Earlier I posted a search for my KANTOR family >from Paberze and Vilna.

I have some more information on one of the families in case it helps.

Hirsch KANTOR (dates unknown) married Chana (maiden name unknown) and they
had: Hertz, Meir, Tzippy and Fruma.

Fruma's children were:
1- Hertzig GNISHER - who had a son Hirsch

2- Meir Henoch FINKLESTEIN - married Shaina (maiden name unknown)and had:
Simcha Gemida, Kayla, Esther, Chana, Hirsch & Matei

3- Malkah

4- Sarah

Given that I have 2 different surnames for Fruma's sons, I'm not sure what
Malkah's and Sarah's surname was. I guess it's possible that Fruma had 2
husbands or that one of the sons changed their surname.

I would love to hear back >from anyone who might possibly know of a
connection or anything at all about these families.

Thank you very much,

Re: Shul on Stone Ave Brooklyn #general

Stone Ave is now known as Mother Gaston Blvd. I too would like to be
copied on the answer to Mel's posting. My GF resided at 615 Stone ave, a
block >from Livonia ave. My GF was buried in the Sons of Israel,
Brownsville plot in Old Montifore Cemetary. I don't know if that would
be what Mel is searching for since I don't know what that Shul's address
was.

1848 Hungarian Jewish Census database #hungary

mt-b <71431.1612@...>
 

This database is great for researchers of individual family names.

However, I am interested in finding the names of an entire village, the
market town of Deutschkreutz. So far, I have not figured out how to search
for a locale.

Is there a way?

Thank you.

Moderator: JewishGen's search engine allows searches on surnames, given names, or town names. Donors who contribute more than $100 to JewishGen operations participate in JewishGen's Value-Added Services program, which includes new Advanced Database Search Features that allow a combintion of multiple search criteria, using Boolean AND/OR searches. This allows more focused, targeted searches.
For example, you can search for all persons whose surname sounds like "Katz" and whose first name starts with "Abr". Or you can search for family groups containing a particular set of given names, within a particular town. You can also filter searches for data updated since a specific date. So if you've already searched a database, you can now search only for data recently added/updated, since a certain date, without re-viewing data that you've previously searched. JewishGen continues to offer basic search capabilities at no cost to users but is providing this feature as one way of saying thanks to those who provide financial support and help us pay the bills for all the programs and projects JewishGen offers as a public service.

obtaining property records #hungary

PBethWeiss@...
 

Dear group,

I am very happy to be able to report that almost four months after we first
made contact with the correct records office (in Edeleny) they have finally
come through with the records for my father's family's house and property in
Tomor, Borsod-Abauj! The office was slow and discouraging in their response,
but in the end they did the right thing and sent the documents.

I have had an intrepid researcher in Budapest working on this, and I know it
would not have been possible without his help. We now have six pages of
closely written details concerning the property and ownership, promising to yield
many items of interest and family history.

I'm writing in today to say even if they discourage you, don't give up!
If you would like to ask me any questions about this, or would like the name
of our researcher, please email me at:
_pbethweiss@... (mailto:pbethweiss@...)

Paula Weiss

Re: Searching for Holocaust survivors #hungary

גירון
 

Hello,

I was lucky just this summer.
I found my mother's first cousin's wife.
I found in the ITS records (the copy of Yad-va-Shem) a lady who had an
address in Budapest in 1946, according to the data I thought she was married
to my mother's first cousin.
According to Yad-Va-Shem my mother's cousin died (the testimony giver was
another cousin no longer alive).
She was 29 in 1946 so I hoped she remarried and was happy but still I wanted
to see if she (being much older then my mother) could remember things about
the family.
I did a complex search in Yad-Va-Shem and found some testimony pages given
in 1993 by a lady (not the one I was looking for) about 2 man: one her late
father and one her late husband.
This young man seemed to be the brother of the lady I was looking for.
I located the testimony page giver and through her, the lady in question!!!!
(With much help >from fellow genealogists to whom I can't thank enough).

I think we are in the last "window of time" in which we could still locate
the survivors alive (before they die of old age) and see if they can tell
anything new.
