1828 Hungarian Property Tax Census database #hungary

Eric M. Bloch
 

Great news! The 1828 Hungarian Property Tax Census database project has
been completed, with close to 30,000 entries. Thanks very much to all
those volunteers who have made this possible. Not only did they give of
their time to transcribe and enter the data into the database, but those
who rented the microfilms and shlepped to their local FHLs to read them
did so at their own expense. All deserve big kudos and our gratitude
for their hard work.

Happy Hunting!
Eric M. Bloch, coordinator

Moderator: This is a monumental accomplishment! Thanks to Eric and to all of the volunteers who worked on this project.

I believe the place you are referring to was known as Oiber Vishiva in
Yiddish.

Hi,

I have an uncle that married in Barsana (Barczanfalva)
Romania in 1884. The records record his place of birth as
Viguel de Sus or Felso Viso.

Does anybody have any idea where this is and what it is
called today?

Thanks!

Dear George Losonci,

The Olaszliszka born Jakab Lefkovits was a grocer in Hajdusamson. His
wife Cecilia Briszk came >from Felsonyarad, Borsod County, so she was
related to Rabbi Briszk of Tiszadada. There were Olaszliszka origined
Lefkovits's in Nyirbator and Ujfeherto also, as I know.

If you have any question, don't worry to call me.

Sincerely,

Jewish Life in SA Country Communities Vol 2 #southafrica

Saul Issroff <saul@...>
 

I received Vol. 2 of the series the other day and can hardly put it down
(although it weighs in at around 5 lbs). As previously stated this covers:
Boland, Bushmanland, Central Karoo, Fairest Cape, Griqualand West, Kalahari,
Koup, Namaqualand, Swartland, West Coast.

There is a wealth of historical detail, not only about the Jews, their
settlement and progress but also about the communities they lived in and
some of the connections. There are many good maps and pictures. I estimate
there are at least 1600 families and probably about 8-10,000 names listed.
There are 528 pages, index alone around 50 pages. Design wise its very good
and visually easy to read.

My congratulations and compliments to the editorial committee group who
wrote the text : Adrienne Kollenberg, Rose Norwich, Joan Gentin, Phyllis
Jowell and David Saks.
Also to the photo. collection group: Joy Kropman, Yvonne Jawitz, Phyllis
Jowell, Lara Bronstein. And of course to the researchers and designers.

This is a must (despite the cost - aggravated by SA mailing costs) for
anyone seriously interested in SA Jewry.

For me it has also highlighted, again, the problem of no equivalent project
for the 'urban' Jews of the cities of South Africa.

Choishe=Hosea ? #general

Steven Bloom <sbloom@...>
 

In reference to an inquiry on the given name "Choishe" (male)

Perhaps its an attempt to render "Hosea" or another Hebrew/Yiddish equivalent?
Beider's book on given names has similar names (though it starts with "hey",
and not "khet").

Steve Bloom
Farmville, VA

Can anyone give me any information as to the meaning of this name or
nickname? I found this as a first name of an ancester in the Ellis Is.
records. Any idea's - He was >from Russia as of Nov. 1913.

Re: Name Changes - Legal and Other #general

Barbara Ellman <barbaraellman@...>
 

A person can change their name without legal process as long
as there is no intent to defraud.

I too have many instances where a relative just started
calling themselves by a different name. Only one did so
legally. This is also a current issue as I have a cousin
who is now known by another name that that on his birth
certificate.
