Re: First Jews in England #general

Further to this discussion.
About six weeks ago, one of my JFRA Israel members
(Ra'anana branch), David Schulman brought a book
called "The Lost Jews of Cornwall" to his presentation
on the early Jews of England.
I only had time to take a cursory glance, but found it
fascinating. Sorry I cannot provide the author's name.
The focus is on a lost period of Jewish involvement in
Cornwall area mining, with examples of terms used in
mining operations, all referring to Jews in some
manner.
Perhaps one of our UK members might be able to provide
more information on this volume and the general
contents.

Best wishes,

Re: TRANSLATION PLEASE #hungary

i find it very difficult to make out the letters (maybe you could post a higher resolution scan or more of the rest of the page for context?), but the first looks like a shin and the last looks like a heh. obviously "zoltan" would be a male name, so the only two male names that i can think of that might fit are "shlomo" and "shemarya".

unfortunately, i'm not confident about either one.

first, if you haven't done so already, register your family names in the jewishgen family finder. (there are some PRAGERs there, by the way.) my PRAGER relative (jozsef, grandmother's brother-in-law) is originally >from zalaegerszeg (which is near keszthely), and then cinkota.

you can check the mormon's archives online >from their web site, to see if they have b/m/d records for keszthely, in which case you can order the film(s) through your local "family history centre", usually located in one of their churches.

and you can also write to the austrian kriegsarkiv in vienna. they don't have everything, but they do answer mail, and will do searches on request. (there is a fee for this.) and be prepared to correspond with them in german.

good luck,

Re: WWI military records #hungary

MSankar <sankosy5@...>
 

Regarding Danielle James' question about military records............

I had also wanted info about my greatgrandfather who had been in the navy,
and wrote to the Austrian military archives:

O"sterreichisches Staatsarchiv
Kriegsarchiv
Nottendorfer Gasse 2
1030 Wien

They were able to provide me with his year of birth, date he entered the
service, and his company number. The archive informed me, however, that
after 1918, the Matriculation papers (which would likely have more personal
information as well) were returned to the countries that were no longer part
of Austria at that time - in my greatgrandfather's case, Hungary.

I then wrote to the Hungarian military archives:

Hadto"rte'nelmi Leve'lta'r
Kapisztra'n te'r 2-4
1250 Budapest

Their response was a very brief line informing me that they had no info on
my ancestor, and that their archives mainly had data of professional
officers.

Perhaps these addresses may be of some help. Good luck!

HAJDU/ RYBICSKA - Hungarian Railways #hungary

I am looking for any information on
Mor Ferenc HAJDU, born in Budapest in 1861 (son of Jakab HAUSER and Lotti
ROTH) and any children he may have had. He changed his name >from HAUSER to
HAJDU in 1898. Mor HAJDU worked as an engineer for MAV the Hungarian State
Railways in Szeged. He married Paula RYBICSKA.

Do the Hungarian Railways give information on their deceased staff?

Can anyone shed light on the origin of the RYBICSKA surname? It seems to be
unusual.

Books of Residents and Census Registers, etc. #poland

Stanley Diamond
 

Dear friends:

Fay Bussgang's message about Books of Residents, Census Registers, etc.,
prompts me to share some news >from the "What's New in Jewish Records
Indexing - Poland" presentation at the International Conference on Jewish
Genealogy last week in Las Vegas.

In referring to the recent meeting of representatives of JRI-Poland and the
Polish State Archives, I mentioned that:

"For a number of years, JRI-Poland has been indexing Books of Residents
and Census Registers >from all over Poland. As a result of the researcher
response to these new sources, and their generosity in making the indexing
possible, an annex has been added to the JRI-Poland/PSA agreement that
formalizes this expansion and opens the doors to the indexing of any â&#8364;&#8220;
I repeat ANY -- type of Jewish record with genealogical content."

While spending your money on private research will ferret out records
for only your own family, joining with fellow researchers to index these
records through JRI-Poland will make these records accessible to your
own family -- as well as other families with roots in that town. It is this
spirit of sharing that characterizes the success of JRI-Poland.

To start or participate in such a cooperative project, first identify the
record collection >from the Polish State Archives website. Then please
contact the Archive Coordinator for the Archive Branch in which the
registers are held. You can find the name and email address of the
Archive Coordinator at: www.jri-poland.org/psa/status.htm

I am the Archive Coordinator for Pultusk. Please do not write to me
about records in other Archives as the Archive Coordinator for your
Archive will be best able to respond knowledgeably to you.
