Miskolc Cemetery: Lorincz inquiry #hungary

John J Kovacs <j.kovacs@...>
 

Miri Klein is asking for assistance about her Lorincz
family. This response deals with her Miskolc family
inquiry and the Miskolc cemetery.
1. In the Miskolc Yiskor Book two persons that may be
of interest are mentioned: Lorincz Marton 1895 and
Ozv. Lorinc Jozsefne 1863 (widow of Jozsef Lorinc).
2. Miskolc Cemetery: A list of people buried there
is available at the cemetery in alphabetical order
starting with 1904. I do not know of any list that
one could search, other than the book at the cemetery.

To find graves, even after one finds the location in
the cemetery book is not easy. The cemetery itself is
not easy to get to.

I was at the cemetery this year and copied most names
with the letter "M."
Thus, it should be possible to get the entire cemetery
book copied and eventually put on the Internet.
Additionally, a good part of the cemetery, especially
from the 19Th century, needs to be cleaned up as I was
told that it is not easily accessible.
Cleaning up a grave >from the 20Th century: for one
grave >from 1924, that was accessible, they asked
$40.00 for clean up. In Budapest I paid $50.00 for
the clean up of a 1930s grave that was accessible.

If descendants of Miskolc are interested in getting
the cemetery list of names copied and doing some clean
up work there they should contact me directly as I
plan to further pursue this matter when I am in
Miskolc again next year.
John (Janos) Kovacs

Can someone translate this notation on an 1905 marriage record?

This phrase is under the column heading : "Hol es hanyazor tortent a

Book-Slovak Jews (1933) #hungary

Gabriela Svatos
 

While visiting the Nitra archive this summer we had good fortune to see a
glimpse of pre-WWII Jewish life in Slovakia through the pages of this very
rare book. It had been in a private collection, but fortunately the widow
of the collector passed this treasure on to the archives for future
generations to study:

Title: Szlovenszkoi zsido hitkozsegei tortenete (History of the Jewish
Communities of Slovakia).
Author: Lanyi Menyhert-Propperne Bekefi Hermin,
Published: Kassa, 1933.

This book has beautiful black and white plates, and is broken down by
localities, giving a history of each community.

It's too bad that so few copies exist:((

An index to Eastern District naturalizations (Kings, Queens, Richmond, Nassau,
and Suffolk counties), 1865-1956, has been posted on the Italian Genealogical
Group's website at http://italiangen.org/EDN.stm .

Steve Morse has just this moment created a One-Step form for the index on his web

My father was inducted into the army in 1918, and his naturalization
occurred as a consequence. what paper trail might I find with respect
to this naturalization?
--
- Jules Feifer
An act of May 9, 1918, allowed aliens serving in the U.S.
armed forces to file a petition for naturalization without
making a declaration of intent or proving 5 years' residence

There is an index to these naturalizations at NARA - read more about
it here
http://uscis.gov/graphics/aboutus/history/natzrec/wwinatz.htm

They suggest you use the index, then request the information from
NARA.

If the name does not appear in the index, then you can send for

German Reparations #general

Henry Lifton <henlif@...>
 

I understand that after the war in Amberg, Germany, my uncle lived in the
Yiddisha Geminda (?). Before he came here, he filled out some papers and the
Germans started sending checks after he arrived here. This organization is
called something like Landesenshadigengsamt >from Munich.

He had to fill out some papers there to get this money. On those papers
might be his parents names.

Does anyone know about this organization and how to get the records?

Thanks

Moderator: Yiddisha Geminda is probably a misspellng of Yidische Gemeinde, which means Jewish community. You should probably send your inquiry to JewishGen's German SIG to find out if anyone has info about post-war Jewish community organizations or refugee centers in Amberg, Germany.


*By Grace Alone* - found! #hungary

October 20 I asked SIG members whether anybody has read the book * By Grace
Alone* authored by Juliana Ray. I have now found the book in the library of
the Bar-Ilan University in Ramat-Gan, Israel. It really is the story of the
Jewish family LEIMDORFER / GRABER, whose origins were in Slovakia, written
by Juliana Ray, daughter of that family. The family which lived in Budapest,
has lost many relatives in the Holocaust. 1958 they moved >from Hungary to
England. The male descendants of that family seem to carry the surname RAY.
Thanks to all colleagues who tried to help me locate that book.
