Introduction: ARZT in Vienna #austria-czech

Albert Braunstein <sbr@...>
 

I am researching my ARZT ancestors who were living in Vienna.
Shaje Moses ARZT was born in Jaroslaw and died in Vienna in 1936 aged 68
years.
He was married to Rosa Rechel Klepner.
I believe they moved to Vienna during the early 20th century.

Elisabeth Segal asks us about the fate of the synagogue in Salzburg.
First, thank you very much Elisabeth for your kind words about my research.

re the Salzburg synagogue; Read this chilling account:

Evan Burr Bukey. Hitler's Austria: Popular Sentiment in the Nazi Era

.. a prelude to what would occur in Vienna and in Austria's provincial
cities during the Krystallnacht. ... November 9-10, a nightmare period not
easily matched in previous European history, include 267 synagogues
destroyed, 7500 businesses and homes devastated, 91 Jews murdered, and
26,000 Jews rounded up. True, "Outside [Vienna] so little Jewish property
remained to pillage or expropriate that the pogrom was limited by the
success of previous purges,"(p.144).

and in German here: http://www.ikg-salzburg.at

The Salzburg synagogue was destroyed and the cemetery was desecrated. The
"Gotteshaus" had to be sold to the Salzburg Police at a knockdown price of
20,000 Reichsmark. The money of course disappeared >from the bank account.

In 1968 the synagogue was reopened. You can also see pictures of the
original, the destroyed and both the exterior and interior of the restored
synagogue.

And you can read here:

that today, Salzburg’s Jewish Community consists of ca 100 people. The
synagogue at Lasserstrasse 8 is still the religious centre. Services are
held on all holidays as well as Friday nights and Saturday mornings:

Hi Paul -

I thought RI was among the more restrictive states, so I was surprised
by your message. But, I went on a hunt and found the marriages
laws of RI at this site.
http://www.rilin.state.ri.us/Statutes/TITLE15/INDEX.HTM

TITLE 15
Domestic Relations
CHAPTER 15-1
Persons Eligible to Marry
SECTION 15-1-1

While the law does prohibit a man >from marrying his niece [see list
of prohibited marriages at site above] There is an exemption for
for any "marriages of kindred" allowed by Jewish religion in Section
15-1-4 of the Domestic Relations laws.

TITLE 15
Domestic Relations
CHAPTER 15-1
Persons Eligible to Marry
SECTION 15-1-4

15-1-4 Marriages of kindred allowed by Jewish religion. - The
provisions of 15-1-1 - 15-1-3 shall not extend to, or in any way
affect, any marriage which shall be solemnized among the Jewish
people, within the degrees of affinity or consanguinity allowed by
their religion.

I wasn't able to find out when this law was written, but it must have
been in place back in 1921.

Re: Good family tree site #southafrica

Gary Blumsohn
 

The Krotman site is highly problematic, for a number of reasons, both
practical and ethical. Here are a couple (not an exhaustive list) of
issues:

1) Data that I put together was forwarded to the site-owner by someone to
whom I had sent a copy of the tree that I put together. The information was
then put on the web, with a number of errors. There are thus known errors
in the information on the web -- information found there cannot be trusted.
When I pointed this out to the site-owner, he offered to correct the errors,
but since the information was sent without my permission, and added to the
site without my permission, I have no intention of sending a list of
corrections. Suffice it to say that if the data isn't being checked as it's
put in (and if the site owner isn't keeping track of which information comes
from what source - as he claimed when I asked who had submitted the data),
there's a real problem.

2) People's personal information is being added to the site without their
permission. I asked to have my name deleted >from the website a couple of
months ago. It has not been done. I know that I am not the only one in
this situation. People living in the US and in Israel, where anti-semitism
is generally not something that we worry about daily, need to be aware that
Jews living in other countries may not be so fortunate, and may not want a
Google search of their name to turn up an extensive Jewish family tree.
Putting this sort of information on the web without the express permission
of at least those people who are living (and, by the way, the Krotman site
has some incorrect information about who is alive and who is not) may cause
unncessary problems for those involved.

Mandatory Citizenship - update #general

Following my post a couple of weeks ago advising that the Israel National
Archives is limiting access to Mandatory Citizenship files to pre-1935,
they told me today that this new policy is on hold until further notice.
That means that for now, we can continue ordering copies of these files,
provided we know the file numbers.

A new project / untapped resource ?? #general

Dear One and All:

There is an untapped resource hanging around out there.

I am talking about memorial plaques hanging on the walls in the synagogues.
Especially older ones where first and second generation immigrants had a plaque
made of their loved one who died in Europe.

So what do you think??

All the best,

Re: finding out where someone is buried #general

sivin@aol.com <sivin@...>
 

Hi,
In the New York City deaths I've researched, the place of burial is
listed on the death certificate. I will then go to the New York City
Archives site and follow the links to the deaths where I can order a
certificate for about $12.00.

Also, for New York City deaths you might try the Italian Genalogical
Group. They have an excellent database which is not limited to Italians
by any means. You can find the certificate number there and date of
death, if you didn't have it before.

VERO-WEISZBERGER/Nyirbator and Debrecen #hungary

Vivian Kahn
 

My father's first cousin, Piroska VERO was married to Zoltan VERO b.
Nyirbator 1905. I recently discovered that his parents were Abraham
WEISZBERGER and Szofia FELDMESSER >from Nyirbator. Zoltan and his
brother Dr. Laszlo WEISZBERGER both died while serving in the Hungarian
Labor Battalion. They had a sister Iren b. 1903 who survived and was
in Debrecen in 1945 after the war. She was married to Jozef LESSER.

Piri and her 4-year old daughter Marika survived Strasshof. After the
war they left Debrecen for Budapest and by December 1949 Piri had
remarried to a man named Bandi(Andras), possibly not Jewish, who had a
17-year old son.

My great-aunt Piri was born in Sepsiszentgyorgy, Hungary, now Sfatu
Georgiu, Romania, to Roszi MOSKOVITS, my paternal grandmother's oldest
sister, and Deszo MARKUS. The Debrecen records incorrectly list Piri's
mother's maiden name as MARKOVITS rather than MOSKOVITS.

I'm trying to find out what happened to Piri, Bandi, and their
children. I recall that my father Elemer NEUMANN, who was born in
Hungary, was
contacted by some cousins in 1956 and asked for help with immigration.
I believe that the family could not enter the US and may have ended up
in Argentina or Chile. Unfortunately, my dad died in 1969 and I don't
have any other relatives,names,or records.

Please get in touch if this blended family sounds familiar. Piri
(Piroska) would now be more than 90 and Bandi would be at least that
old.
Piri's daughter Marika (Maria) would be about 63. This family was
living in Budapest in 1949 and may have emigrated to South America
after 1956.

I'll be in Budapest next month and would appreciate any suggestions
about how to locate this family.

On Sun, 31 Jul 2005 03:57:30 UTC, momat@paradise.net.nz opined:

TATCH Louis died 1961
Can anyone please point me in the right direction .
I am looking for a death in New Jersey of Louis TATCH and I cannot find any SSDI for him on line.
Is it possible for anyone to do a look up for me on this name ,
I would be extremely grateful.
It's possible that he never had a Social Security account. There was a
time not so long ago when only employed persons had such accounts; he
might have been self-employed even at the date when accounts became
obligatory. It is also conceivable that, although he had an account,
nobody reported his death to the SSA.

But this is not necessarily a problem for you. You can wrote to the NJ
Department of Health and Senior Services (I seem to remember that this
is how it is called), Trenton NJ, or look up its email address on the
NJ State Government website, and order a death certificate for the
man. There is an order form on the site that you can fill in. I think
they now require evidence of some sort that you are related to him, or
have another valid reason to have the information contained in the
death certificate. There is, of course, a reasonable charge for the
cearch, per year searched. But you already know the year.

I have ordered and received one such document >from them. Its
information unlocked for me a mystery of several years standing.
