Hungarians to Berlin and how to find records #hungary

peter bakos <pgbakos@...>
 

Hi,

I understand this is off the path, but our ancestors and their families
moved around, so...

Ludwig Podwinetz >from Nagy Becskerek went to Vienna where he died. He left
money to his sister who lived in Berlin with her husband whose family name
was Kafka.

The legacy (100 Kroner!) was in 1917. Any ideas of where to look for
information for Berlin?

Thanks

Cemetery Ownership #hungary

peter bakos <pgbakos@...>
 

Hello fellow Siggers,

This is an odd question, but you will understand the context.

I recently visited Yasa Tomic (Formerly Modos) in the Voivodina. It is in
that area the fascists wnated to make "Juden Frei" and as a result there is
no evidence whatever of a Jewish community there. As some of my Podwinetz
cousins were born there per their marriage information elsewhere, I know
that there was a community at one time.

While on a recent visit a local man took me to a patch of ground which he
described as "Jungle" the sole word in his English vocabulary. We walked
into it but I could not find any monuments but it really was a jungle. So
before I go off with tools in hand and level the undergrowth I want to be
certain of my legal standing. How would I determine any ownership
questions? Any idea where I can find an old topo map which may indicate the
presence of a cemetery? If it does exist what is the protocol in clearing
it? Is it even desireable to clear it?

Thanks

Re: Deportations from Holland #germany

Janet Kirchheimer <janetk521@...>
 

I was able to obtain a list that had the names of my grandparents, aunt and
uncle who were deported >from Westerbork. They were German citizens and were
able to get to Holland as it was an occupied country, and then tried to get
to the US. I was able to get the list about five years ago -- I wrote to
the camp offices via email and they were able to find the deporation list
with my family members on it and they sent me via airmail. The people I
dealt with were quite helpful. It may now be possible to obtain the lists on
line, rather than having it send via airmail. I didn't keep the email
information, but I'm sure you can find it if you do a websearch for Westerbork.

Re: Question about JACOB Surname #germany

N.Landau@...
 

Possibly before the advent of the Internet there were firms advertising a
book containing all the persons of a particular surname in the UK, US, Germany
and some other countries. I bought the Book of Landaus as a birthday present for
my father.

The fact that most of my relatives in the UK were listed was some kind of
test of the accuracy of the book.

Of particular interest was the fact that there were >from memory about 1,000
people of the name LANDAU in probably West Germany. This was 50 per cent of
the total number if I remember.

It was therefore quite clear >from this that LANDAU was not a solely Jewish
name - at that time there were only 30,000 Jews in Germany so if these had
all been Jewish (and we would be talking about adults) that would make
Landau's to be about 1 in 20 of the German Jewish population which clearly
be ridiculous.

So it doesn't mean that LANDAU is a more popular name amongst non-Jewish
Germans than amongst Jews it does suggest that, say, 1 in 10,000 Germans
have that surname. If one compares that with a quite common name in a
telephone directory I would suggest that this is a reasonably high
percentage.

Re: Could "Yitzhak" be translated as "Alexander?" #general

Yitzhak >from calling himself Alexander.

Yitzhak is a biblical Hebrew name, and Alexander is a Greek name
which has found its way into many languages including Hebrew and
Russian (first made popular, of course, because of Alexander the
Great). Its popularity in 19th century Russia was presumably
increased because of the tsars of that name, especially (for the
Jews) the reformer Alexander II.

Actually, name Alexander and all other Christian names were forbidden for
Jews. Those restrictions were also applicable for the biblical names adopted by
the Russian Orthodox Church saints, like David, Moses (Moisey), Daniel,
Isaak.


Alex... There seems to be an inconsistency in your explanation; more
likely, you have omitted a step. If "Christian" names were forbidden
until the 1905 Revolution, and if a pre-Christian name like
"Alexander" counts as a Christian name, how do we account for the
observed occurence (including in my own family) of people named
Alexander thirty years before that revolution? One guesses that you
yourself can trace your name back to a forebear in that era.
