Sending Funds to Hungary #hungary

Sam Schleman <Samara99@...>
 

Hello all;

I need to send funds to a researcher that I have hired in Hungary. I am
wondering what means others have used to convey funds.

This is for an independent researcher, not one of the archives, since
archive policy may be different than what an individual may experience.

I looked into wiring the money, but the fees for doing so constitute 25% of
the researcher's fee, which seems excessive. He has suggested sending cash
via registered mail, but the people at the local post office have said they
believe that has a 50-50 chance of making it.

Have others used registered mail and has that been successful?

Has anyone used money orders? If so, which kind/brand of money order works
in Hungary?

My researcher seems reluctant/unwilling for me to send a US check or a money
order, but I'm not sure why.

Looking for suggestions.

Thanks.

::: Hungarian Gold Train class suit under way ::: #hungary

Tom Venetianer <tom.vene@...>
 

Dear all,

For Jews who lived in Hungary or annexed territories between 1939 and 1945, there is a new reparation process under way. It is called the "Hungarian Gold Train Settlement". In brief, it's a class suit in which survivors (and their heirs) meeting certain criteria could be entitled to be included in that suit.

All the related information and procedures are explained at a new site of the "Hungarian Gold Train Settlement":
<http://www.HungarianGoldTrain.org/index_en.asp>;

The best explanation of details can be found at the FAQs page:
<http://www.HungarianGoldTrain.org/faq.asp>;

Best regards

Document Translation Help Needed #hungary

Teresa Delikat <flott_genealogy@...>
 

Dear List Members,

I have scanned and posted a document that I am unable
to translate. I believe it is written in Russian. The
document (2 sides) belonged to my Friends
Father-in-law and it’s the only document in his papers
that we are unfamiliar with.

To view both sides of the document (VM5989 and
VM5990):

http://data.jewishgen.org/viewmate/ALL/viewmateview.asp?key=5989
http://data.jewishgen.org/viewmate/ALL/viewmateview.asp?key=5990

Please respond privately to my email address.

Thank you so much,

Moderator: If this document is indeed in Russian, this is probably not the group who should be notified. It would be helpful if you could explain why you believe there is a Hungarian connection.

I have two graves there as well - side by side. I'd be pleased if whoever does
this for Robert can do mine too. Thank you.

If a kind person happens to be going to Willesden Cemetery sometime (no
hurry at all) and is willing and able to take a digital picture of two
gravestones, I'd be very grateful.

Please respond privately

Many thanks.

Seek Adolf Eugen STERN - Berlin - Owner of film production company #germany

My great- grandfather and much of my maternal side of
the family lived in Berlin for over 500 years (or so I
am told). I am wondering if you could direct me to
some people, societies, or networks where I could find
if anyone who knew my grandfather. He ran a successful
movie production company, and worked with the Danish
on certain operations (or so I am told). His name was
Adolf Eugen STERN and lived on Mommsenstrasse? Most of
my family moved to the Commonwealth and the Americas
post war. I am one of the few Jews left in my family
that is not assimilated into secular culture. I would
like to do some research on my family. Can anyone
point me to any particulars where I can continue my
research? Thanks. [MODERATOR NOTE: I would point you
toward the Welcome / Introduction letter you received >from us
when you joined GerSIG. It contains many suggestions on how to
prepare to research your family and links to many Internet resources which
should be helpful to you.]

old East End synagogues #unitedkingdom

dayna reader <zoeys_mom@...>
 

i have recently found out that my ancestors belonged
to the JUBILEE ST. (?) synagogue in the East End
(White Chapel, perhaps?). Apparently, my gg-uncle
Abraham GLASSMAN was very active in this synagogue.

i'm wondering if this synagogue still exists today,
and if not, if the old records >from this synagogue
would be available at any current synagogue.
