Announcement: Sefer Marmaros translations online #hungary

Moshe & Esther Davis <davis@...>
 

Dear All,

It is my long-awaited pleasure to announce that as part of the
JewishGen Yizkor Book translation project, an initial installment
has been posted online in the translation of the encyclopedic
yizkor book "Sefer Marmaros - 160 Jewish Communities in their
prime and in their destruction".

http://www.jewishgen.org/yizkor/Maramures/Maramures.html

This yizkor book has been described by Dr Nachi Keren (author of
the recently published Sziget yizkor book) as an "Absolute must
for any Marmaros researcher".

Sefer Marmaros is an outstanding example of what a Yizkor Book
can strive to be. Encyclopedic in scope and well-researched, it
covers an entire region in intimate detail. All of the Yizkor Books
that have since been written on any of the many towns and cities in
the Marmaros region have heavily borrowed >from the material
originally researched for and published in Sefer Marmaros.

Marmaros was historically a state within the Austro-Hungarian
Empire, located on the northeastern border of the Empire with
Galicia to the north and Romania to the east. With the breakup of
the Empire in the aftermath of WW1, northern Marmaros was given
to the newly formed country Czechoslovakia, while southern
Marmaros was given to Romania. During WW2, all of Marmaros
was occupied by Axis Hungary. After the war, southern Marmaros
again became part of Romania, while the northern area became
part of the USSR. Since the breakup of the USSR in the early
1990s, this northern part of Marmaros became the southwestern
extreme of the Republic of Ukraine. Thus, this yizkor book should
be of interest to researchers of areas of historical Hungary,
Romania, Czechoslovakia, and Ukraine.

Sefer Marmaros is divided into two main sections:

The first part of the book consists of 7 chapters which give a
comprehensive overview of the Marmaros region as a whole,
together with its Jewish history and culture. At present one of
these seven chapters is online.

The second part of the book consists of separate articles of varying
length (some up to about 40 large-format pages) about each of the
approximately 160 separate towns and cities in the region that
boasted a Jewish population. At present 4 of these articles are
online.

The total list of 160 towns in the Marmaros region as a whole is
broken down geographically in Sefer Marmaros into 7 "areas", each
centered more or less on the main city or the biggest Jewish town
in the subregion.

Because of the many historical border changes that have taken
place in the region, almost all of the towns in Marmaros have had
multiple historical names. Therefore, I have prepared online
indexes which cross-reference these town name variations.

Originally the book was published circa ~1985. A second edition,
with slightly expanded articles on some towns, was published in
1996. The present online translations are >from the 1996 2nd
edition.

Any and all comments and/or contributions towards the completion
of this translation project are welcome.

All Hungary Database #hungary

Carol J. Robinson <caroljr@...>
 

The All Hungary Database is almost two years old and continues to grow
due to H-SIG's dedicated volunteers. The AHD was first published in late
March 2003 with 45,000 records. After a year, we were proud to announce
that the AHD had over 140,000 records. As of today, the AHD has over
240,000 records (though the exact number has not yet been updated on the
website).

New databases just published include the Death and Marriage databases.
Updated databases include the 1869 Census, Holocaust Memorial, Births
and Hungarian Jewish Survivors Listed in a Hungarian Periodical. Also
just announced was the publication of the first sections of the
Maramaros Yizkor Book.

If you are looking for a way to help, contact me or the project
coordinators. Both the 1828 and 1848 census projects are making
outstanding progress but can always use additional transcribers as we
get close to the finish line with both these projects. Also, some of you
may be planning trips to H-SIG areas this summer. If so, please
consider photographing Holocaust memorials and/or cemeteries if you are
able to do so. Remember that we need entire memorials and individual
panels as well as entire cemeteries. Do not hesitate to contact me for
additiona information about how you can help.

We have accomplished so much due to the dedication of the many
volunteers who have contributed their time and talent to the AHD. All I
can say is Koszonom, Danke, Dakujem, Multumesc, Toda and Thank You!

Dear John,
about the subject of Hungarian birth certificates.

Do not forget, that a current Hungarian birth
certificate does not contain the religion of the
person, no matter the year he/she was born or the
original document had the religion listed, as it was
till 1945.
If somebody would like to have a birth certificate
with the Jewish ("Izraelita") religion stated, the
Jewish Community has the records and for a small fee
(about $US7 or 8)will provide it.

New Book: "Genealogical Gazetteer of the Kingdom of Hungary" #hungary

Gary Mokotoff (Optonline) <garymokotoff@...>
 

Avotaynu has just published a "Genealogical Gazetteer of the Kingdom of
Hungary." It provides information about more than 12,000 towns within the
19th-century borders of the Kingdom of Hungary that today comprise regions
of Austria, Croatia, Hungary, Romania, Serbia, Slovenia, Slovak Republic and
Ukraine. For each community, information by religion is provided for the
population. If there was no synagogue (or church), the town where each
congregation worshiped is indicated. This is key to identifying the Roman
Catholic diocese, the church of record for the events of all faiths,
including Jewish, prior to civil registration in the 1850s. It is also
useful in searching possible places of burial. Additional information about
each town includes alternate names and its current name if no longer in
Hungary. Towns can be searched alphabetically by their current name, former
name or alternate name(s).

The author is Jordan Auslander of the New York Jewish Genealogical Society.
Auslander spent more than five years compiling the information which was
based on the 1877 gazetteer, "Magyarorszag Helysegnevtara" (Hungarian
Gazetteer), by Janos Dvorzsak.

For additional information, go to http://www.avotaynu.com/books/hungary.htm.
At the site is the Table of Contents, a sample page >from the gazetteer, and
a sample page >from the appendix which provides contemporary names for towns
in the former Kingdom of Hungary.

Hello Tom,
in your translation you left out the fact, that the address was a separate
item the >from the next notation, that stated that the "glassplate" (used in
those days as negatives) has been retained by the photographer for reprint orders.
It does change the context.
Your reference to the 1950-s is less relevant since in the fifties the
negative film sqeezed out the old glassplates. You could already buy negative film
to be loaded into the old classplate carriers. (I did in pre-1956 Hungary- for
my good old harmonica-Voightlander)
Keep up the good work,

When a message you send to another researcher listed in the JGFF or FTJP,
fails to be delivered, please report the bounce to
<lostNfound@...>. In your message, provide your own full
name and JGID, and the name and JGID of the person with the bounced e-mail.

Under the leadership of Saul Goldstone we have a considerable group of
volunteers who contact people in their local area who have changed their
e-mail addresses but have neglected to notify JewishGen. The ability to
connect with another researcher who may have a connection to your own
research is vital and the reason we established the lostNfound help desk.

If you are willing to devote some time to helping in this effort, please
contact Saul at
<sgoldstone@...> and provide him with your home address and
specify the towns to which you are willing to make phone calls. These can
be as wide an area as you like. Please consider joining in the effort to
find all researchers who are lost.

Many thanks for helping with this.

Picture from Budapest or Eger #hungary

John J Kovacs <j.kovacs@...>
 

Hello Cindy Berkowitz,

I am writing about the photograph taken by Perlgrund
with photo studios in Budapest and Eger.
I have been researching the Perlgrunds as they are
part of my extended family and this bit of information
may or may not help you:
Armin Perlgrund, born in O'Buda in 1821 a photographer
in Eger died in 1887. Armin's son Adolf was born in
1864 and married in 1895 was also a photographer, but
in Budapest. Lajos Perlgrund probably another of
Armin's sons was a photographer in Eger as late as
1892. Consequently, the two photo studios. I have
several Perlgrund photographs signed "Perlgrund es
Tarsa" (Perlgrund and his partner), >from Eger as my
maternal great grandmother born a Perlgrund in O'Buda,
but married and died in Eger.
It would indeed be of great interest if you could post
the photograph on Viewmate or e-mail it.

Additionally, if anyone else has any information about
the Perlgrund family I would appreciate if you would
contact me. I have only found one living Perlgrund in
the U.S. who immigrated >from Romania, but are related
to the Budapest and Eger family.
