GANZ family and Jewish records for Jand, Hungary and Szighet, Romania #hungary

Asparagirl <asparagirl@...>
 

My husband's GANZ family lived in the town of Jand, Hungary (there should be
an accent mark over that A in Jand), in Szabolcs-Szatmar-Bereg right on the
border with Romania. Family stories say the family actually originated in
"the same town that Elie Wiesel was from", which appears to be Szighet,
Romania, a.k.a. Sighetu Marmatiei, just on the other side of the border.
Judging >from the Yad Vashem and JGFF databases, there were an awful lot of
people named GANZ / GANS / GENZ / GENS / GANTZ / GENTZ in that
Hungary/Romania border region, as well as a sizable number in Budapest.

Does anyone know what records may be available for Jand or other towns in
Szabolcs-Szatmar-Bereg? What about Szighet? Is there an index available
comperable to Miriam Weiner's Routes to Roots Foundation database for
Poland, Ukraine, and Moldova? I would like to research this family and
these towns further, but frankly, I'm a bit overwhelmed and don't know where
to start. (Yes, I did use the all-Hungary database already...) I don't
read Hungarian. Should I consider hiring a private researcher?

Here is the information I have available on this family:

Isaac GANZ, b. unknown (maybe 1850?), d. before 1924, m. Rose (WEIZBERGER)
WEISBERG

1. Joseph GANZ, b. Jan 20 1876 in Szighet, Romania, immigrated Dec 13 1909
to Ellis Island, New York, d. Aug 26 1952 in Los Angeles, California.
Married Rose/Rosa (last name unknown).
a. Max GANZ, b. Aug 18 1899 in Budapest, Hungary, immigrated Jan 07 1910
to Ellis Island, New York, d. Oct 20 1975 in Los Angeles, California.
Married, three daughters.

2. David / Dawid "Dave" GANZ, b. Apr 16 1887 in Jand, Hungary, immigrated
Jul 02 1909 to Ellis Island, New York, d. Nov 1978 in New York. Married
circa 1908 in Hungary, four children. This is my husband's great-grandfather.

3. Unknown GANZ daughter, m. Unknown SPITZER.
a. Irving SPITZER

By the way, I have started a GANZ / GANS / GENZ / GENS / GANTZ / GENTZ
surname project at FamilyTreeDNA.com. If you are a male with a variant of
this surname, please join our group so we can use science to reconstruct the
family tree.

The 1930 Poland and Danzig Business Directory, "Ksiega Adresowa Polski (wraz
z w. m. Gdanskiem) dla handlu, rzemiosl i rolnictwa," is now freely
available online at the Digital Library of Wielkopolska's site
http://www.wbc.poznan.pl/dlibra/docmetadata?id=11649. This 2697-page
directory is primarily organized by place, then by business type, then by
surname or business name. To facilitate searching, I have applied optical
character recognition (OCR) software to the Digital Library images and
incorporated the result into my Search Engine for Online Historical
Directories at http://www.kalter.org/search.php, as I recently did for the
1926/1927 edition of this directory. When searching, please keep in mind
that OCR is not 100% accurate, so you still might want to manually search
the directory, especially if you are only interested in a few known small
towns. To improve your chances of success, I encourage you to make use of
all three available methods of searching. An explanation of how to access
the scanned directory images at the Digital Library site can be found in the
FAQ on the Search Engine site.

If you find this tool to be helpful, please let me know.

Please realize that an initially high response may slow the Search Engine.

Berlin Directory - SLADOWSKY #germany

Lorraine Fig <lfig@...>
 

Dear GerSig friends,

Is there a kind German speaking person out there who would access the
website of the Berlin directory http://adressbuch.zlb.de/ and look for
an entry for Max SLADOWSKY who was a dentist in Berlin before World War
II? I have been struggling with the site and my non-existent German
doesn't permit me to make much progress.

Also, does anyone have any ideas on how to get vital records for the
period 1865-1895 for Tilsit, East Prussia (now Sovetsk, Kaliningrad,
Russia) and the nearby village of Gross Friedrichsdorf (now
Gastellovo)? I am researching the following names: SLADOWSKY and
LUDWINOWSKY >from this region. I appreciate your collective help.

UK Jewish Records - List of Sources #general

Nick <tulse04-news@...>
 

I have just found this source of Jewish records in the Moving Here Project which
is under the auspices of the UK National Archive.

http://tinyurl.com/78rrt

It contains the various headings:

Jewish communities
Birth records
Marriage records
Beth Din or (ecclesiastical) Court of the Chief Rabbi
Death, Burial and Cemetery Records
Tracing a Grave

I think that the site was created by our colleague, Saul Issroff. I think that it
is very comprehensive and it is a very good entrypoint who are not familiar with
the UK Jewish community, and particularly people who have Jewish ancestry and who
are now distant >from Jewish matters.

Rav Yechiel Michal TUCATZENSKY #general

Aidel Heller <aidelh@...>
 

BS"D

I am trying to trace my family's lineage to Rav Yechiel Michal (ben Aharon)
TUCATZENSKY, zt"l. He was Rosh Yeshiva of Etz Chayim in Jerusalem.

My grandfather was Pesach Leibel (Yehuda) Tucatzensky, who was born in Lodz and
came to the US as a teenager to avoid the Russian front. His father was Rav
Menachem Mendel ben Chatzkil (Yechezkil?) Tucatzensky. He was a dayan (Jewish
judge) in Lodz. His wife's name was Esther, nee Vishnik. I believe that R.
Chatzkil's wife was Rivka, and there is the possibility that his father's name was
Reuven Tucatzensky.

Does anyone have information on any of this Tucatzensky family tree?

Thank you very much,

Aidel Heller
