Re: Call for help: Information about the CHAIM family/ Schwelm, Germany #germany

Nachum Tuchman
 

Hi,
Like most German cities, just type in www.name of the city.de. (The
period after the de is to end the sentance, and is not part of the
URL). You will get the web site for the town. For Schwelm, like
others I've seen, it's in German. But if nothing else, there is an
e-mail link on the left.

I was looking for records >from Zeitz, Saxony. My German is less than good.
I sent an e-mail with everything I knew about the family I was
researching. I sent whatever I knew regarding dates of birth, death,
etc. I added that if I had sent the e-mail to the wrong office, I'd
appreciate it if they would send it to the right office. I wrote in
English, and did a translation on a free translation web site, sending
both languages, with an apology if the German translation was not very
good. I got back by return mail, within about 3 weeks, my wife's
great grandfather's birth record, another record that may have been a
brother, and their father's death record.

Any help regarding this matter will be mostly appreciated. Best Regards,

Hello GerSig,

I have just joined the group. I have been doing genealogy research with my
cousin by marriage Hazel Dakers for the past 5 years; I suppose you could
say I have adopted her family. I live in the area of Germany >from where her
Ancestors originated. I live in Bad Pyrmont which is in Lower Saxony; Luegde
our main town of interest is only 2 miles away and is in Lippe, Westphalia
and, as you can imagine, the State border runs right between the two towns.

My native language is English and I am also fluent in German.

We are researching the following families: HIEMANN/HEINEMANN - Luegde,
MICHAELIS/MICHAELIS-JENA - Luegde and Detmold, WEILER - Peckelsheim,
HOFFBAUER - Buende, HALLENSTEIN - Halle/Weser.

Unfortunately what I cannot do is, to take on a flood of requests asking me
to help research other names or towns in this area. Questions as to the
location of villages in the area are welcome and I will try to answer.

Re: Searching for Martin Heller and family #hungary

michael perl <michael_perl9@...>
 

Dear Pamela,

Regarding your problem, I will add more. Of course, you have to start with
the birth record of your mother.

You will likely need to know the exact town in which she was born.
Hopefully, it was the city of Arad, otherwise the archives in that town only
have documents for other towns in the county that go back beyond 100 years.

In any case, the birth record will open the door for your needs since it
will have the names of the parents, their age and at that time, usually
their places of birth. The latter is the most important and equipped with
the year, you can search for your grandfather's birth record.

Happy hunting.

Michael Perl

Subject: A puzzle - searching for Martin Heller and family
From: "Pamela Furmidge" <pamela.furmidge@proverba.co.uk>

X-Message-Number: 4

Hello List

I wonder if anyone can help me solve a family puzzle.

My grandfather was born in Hungary in 1868 (according to his age on
marriage
certificate) or 1863 (according to his age on death certificate) and died
in
London in 1928.

His will names him as Martin Hirsh Heller, with brothers Bela and Samuel
then living in Hungary (1928). He had had a sister, Jennie, and her
widower, Adolf Schaechter, living in London, was mentioned in the will.

His civil marriage certificate (London 1904) names him Carl Martin
Heller,
son of
Carl Martin Ferdinand Heller, deceased.

The birth certificate of his eldest son (Phillip Ferdinand Heller, born
Stourbridge, UK, 1905) names him Martin
Carl Philip Ferdinand Heller.

He went on to have two other sons, Andor and Samuel, but I have not been
able to trace their births yet and I suspect that they may have been born
in
Hungary. His daughter, my mother, was born in Hungary (Arad) in 1911.

I would like to try to trace his birth and the rest of his family but I
do
not know which of these names are likely to be his birth names! I also
do
not know which part of Greater Hungary he and/or his family came from.

Any advice would be gratefully received.

Pamela

Yes, I have read it, but it was not my own copy I

still has it.

It is the story of how a Hungarian Jewish family

1869 Census #hungary

Michael Miller <mmillermrpjd@...>
 

I beg to differ with Robert Neu about use of the Family History Library
Catalog for the 1869 Census in North Hungary now Slovakia. I have
personally used it for that purpose many times, and have discussed with
Dominique Lang who is raising this issue.

Most records for 1869 are not principally catalogued by town, but by County.
It is not difficult to enter a County name (Nyitra here) into the "place
search" which will bring up a list of Nyitra places, the first of which has
no sub-listing (Hungary, Nyitra). Clicking on that link brings up three
county-wide records, one of which is the 1869 Census. Clicking on that
link, and then on "show film notes" brings up the 624 entries for places on
the films. One has to sort through them (unless you can take a short cut by
knowing the Slovakian district (Jaras) to move around faster).

Anyone can find the six listings for Ersekujvar/Nove Zamky (towns are listed
alphabetically by Hungarian town name within each Jaras and have the current
Slovakian name appended)):

Érsekujvár (Nové Zámky) VAULT INTL Film 2150656 Item 3

Re: Searching for Holocaust survivors #hungary

Gábor Hirsch <g_hirsch@...>
 

What do you understand as being successful?

Probably the ones deported and returned to Hungary, knew in generally where
the ones in question were deported, but it also happened as for example in
case of the Ghetto Bekescsaba that one transport (25. June) went to
Debrecen, there being divided and a part went to Austria/Wiener-Neustadt-
Strasshof the rest to Auschwitz, the second part (26. June) directly to
Auschwitz.
So in many cases you knew other survivors, who could more or less give you
some information, but not in every case correct. In my case the most
relaiable information I got >from ITS (International Traceing Service in
Arolsen but also in USA), where they were able to trace my mother to
Stutthof near Danzig/Polen, so I could get additional information >from KZ
Stutthof with copies Transport and evidencebook entries. Some information
regarding my cousins and myself, I was able to get >from the archive of the
Auschwitz Museum. An enquiery in Yad Vashem was less successfool.

Szita Szabolcs gave several lists in his book about the ones being deported
to Austria.
