BOOK CITE - Jewish Community of Bad Brueckenau #germany

Joan Zeller <jrzeller@...>
 

I recently received a copy of "Wuerzburger
Dioezesan-Geschichtsblaetter", 66 Band [Volume 66], Sonderdruck
[Special Edition], published by Bistum Wuerzburg [Wurzburg Diocese]
in 2004 (no ISBN or other info). The theme of this volume is "Die
juedische Gemeinde von Bad Brueckenau" and seems to be a very
comprehensive and scholarly history of the Jews of this area (many of
whom came >from Zuentersbach). (I say "seems to" because it is
written in German, and I am struggling to read it.) It has 212 pages
and contains a wealth of genealogical information.

Unfortunately, there is no index, but some of the families included
are: BONDY, CAHNER, FRANK, GOLDSCHMIDT,
GRUENEBAUM, SCHUSTER, STERN,
STRAUSS, TANNENWALD, ZELLER.

Brueckenau (Bruckenau with umlaut over the first u) is located at
coordinates 5018 0948 in Bavaria.

For information on how to get the book, e-mail me privately.

Military records in the Austro-Hungarian Empire #ukraine

Thomas F. Weiss
 

Dear Fellow Jewish Genners -

My grandfather served in the Austro-Hungarian Army on two
occasions. In his first tour of duty, he served in the 20th
Infantry Regiment while he was living in Galicia and was discharged
in 1899 in Stanislau (now Ivano-Frankivsk), Galicia. In his second
tour of duty, he served in the reserves during 1915-1917 after he
had moved to Vienna. When I requested his military records >from the
Kriegsarchiv in Vienna, I received his records for his second tour of
duty. I have asked the Kriegsarchiv in Vienna for records of his
earlier tour of duty but have received no reply. I have heard that
the military records of the Austro-Hungarian Army for people who
served in parts of the empire that are no longer in Austria reside in
the successor states.

My question is, does anyone know where the military records
are kept for members of the Austro-Hungarian Army for recruits who
came >from Eastern Galicia? How can I obtain copies of these records?
Please respond to me privately at tfweiss@mit.edu.

Thank you for your consideration.

Lightweight laptops and Family Tree Maker #unitedkingdom

Hazel Dakers
 

I am about to buy a light weight laptop to take to archives and libraries
when doing gen research. I think in the end I shall have to buy one top end
of my weight limit - 2 kilos- to obtain the other features I want. However I
am very much tempted by two models which weight under 1.4kilos - the Fujitsu
Lifebook and the Sony Vaio T series. The reason I have hesitated is that I
am uncertain how readable my Family Tree Maker database would be on a 10.5
inch screen.

Would any list member with experience of using Family Tree Maker on either
of these machines please be kind enough to reply to me privately offlist
with regard both to screen size and keyboard size.

Many thanks

Looking for Markus - Hungary #hungary

Joana Neves <flateryowls@...>
 

Shalom!
I'm a "rookie" in the world of genealogy and have recently been moved by
great curiosity to finally do some research on my hungarian jewsih family.
To cut a long story short, my great-grandfather emmigrated >from Hungary to
Portugal, via Spain, in the 30s and raised his family here. My
great-grandmother didn't come with him and was never really spoken of much
by her husband and children. Unfortunately, I can no longer rely on direct
information >from my grandmother and great-uncles, because the surviving ones
are really very old and frail (and not prone to speaking of their past even
in the best of health). Hence my attempt at investigating.
As I said, I'm quite new to this and while I learn to navigate sites and
databases I thought I'd ask anyone if they have come across, in their
investigations, anything about:
Charlotte Lang (my great-grandmother, born circa 1890s in Hungary, precise
location ?, deceased?, lived in Vienna during the early 20s and in Paris
during the occupation)
or Nicolás Márkus (my great-grandfather, born 1892 in Pusztamonostov,
Hungary, deceased 1970, Lisbon, Portugal, fought in WWI, not sure which
fronts, lived in Vienna during the early 20's, in Barcelona >from 1923 to
circa 1934, then in Cascais, Portugal, until his death).
Needless to say, any tips or advice you might have on research sources and
methods will be very welcome.

Here are some general interest extracts >from the Varadi Zsidosag
tortenrte, by Lakos Lajos, 1912

1-Bihar interest:
The main anti Turkish campaigns took place between 1662-1692. In the
processed all county documents perished. The first county docs date from
1713 and the first Jewish presence is >from 1722

2-Jewish Movements interest:
The first Jewish itinerants in Varad came >from Pozsony and Esztergom,
likely riding on the coattails of the Hapsburg establishment. In 1723 a
very rich Lazar Simon came to Varad.

from 1757 the municipal authorities in Varad issued settlement permits
for the Jews. In 1852 the Jewish community in Varad filed a complaint
with the city that it doesn't enforce the settlement permit rule and it
doesn't ask for the approval of the Jewish authorities to issue permits.
Also there is mention of occupational permits required to practice a
trade in the city.

In 1798 Royal edict #767 stipulated that Jews relocating without a
permit("passzus") will be returned forcibly to their former place of
residence. This may explain the expulsion of the Jews >from SA Ujhely in
1807.

I wonder if there is a trace of all these permits anywhere?

3-Naming patterns interest(for the 'last-name' enthusiasts:
Between 1722 and 1770 these are names mentioned in the book
1722-25

Re: another curious name #hungary

Miriam.Rubin@...
 

To explain the difference of surnames in the same family here are a couple
of possibilities

1. Although the parents were married in a religious ceremony, for whatever
reason
they did not register with the state that they were married. Therefore any
children
born to them prior to their 'government-recognized' marriage would have
the last
name of the mother. Any children born after they received an official
marriage certificate
would have the names of the father. Possibly to avoid confusion, they may
have appended
the father's name afterwards.

2. Families may have been combined >from the onset, because of the high
mortality rate. A woman may have been widowed,
therefore having her (first) husbands name as her children's surname, a
man may have been
widowed as well, having his own children's name, and the 2 of them may
have had children
together, thus bearing a combination of the 2 names. Often the children
weren't told about
these situations till they themselves were ready to get married.

I have not heard of the name Anserl; perhaps it is a derivative of
Anschel, since the
's' is pronounced 'sh'?

opening ceremonies for the memorial to the murdered Jews of Europa. In
the first room on illuminated glass panels some documents are visible
with transriptions in German and English and also the number of the
murdered Jews in European countries. for Hungary 270-300'000 is
mentioned, the victims inside the Trianon boarders, in my opinion it
should have mentioned also the ones being victims of the Hungarian
politics in Transylvania, Felvidek, Karpatho Ukraina and Delvidek, but
they are listed as of Slovakia, Romania etc. The second theme room,
containes family histories >from different countries before, during and
after the Holocaust, one of them shows the family Hirsch >from

be heard, reading names of murdered European Jews and their biographies.
