Las Vegas Conference #poland

Shirley B. Radding <sbradding@...>
 

I have tried to follow the daily planner for the Las Vegas meeting, but
being real new at this task, I don't know what to look for. I can't be
there for the entire meeting but I would like to attend thode sessions
that are for real beginners. What are these? I did visit Bialystok a
few years ago and actually found what I think is my father's birth
register - in three languages. But then I'm stuck and can't find
anything more until he arrives in this country. And I can't find
anything more about my grandfather or great grandfather arrivinh in this
country. There wewre all here before my father came in 1905. Are there
any sessions that would be helpful to me?

Adolf Zukor #hungary

moishe@langsam.com <moishe@...>
 

Dear Group,

I am inspired by the article in the recent issue of
Avotaynu regarding Jan Murray.

In our family we have a story that Adolf Zukor of Hollywood
Movie Mogul fame was either a cousin or uncle to my late
grandmother. My great-aunt used to tell over a story how
Adolf came to the family in Hungary asking for money to
help him start a business before he left to America.

What I do know about my own family is that my late
grandmother ob"m, Chana (Jane) YUROWITZ nee WEINSTOCK (1907
- 1981), was born to Moshe Weinstock (1868-1949) and Raizel
STERN (1873-1929). In 1929 the family was living in Puks,
Hungary. They were >from Zenta, Yugoslavia.

Moshe Weinstock's parents were Yona and Rachel WEINSTOCK,
possibly >from Zenta too. Raizel Weinstock nee Stern's
parents were Tzvi Stern and Rochel STEINER >from Iloc,
Yugoslavia.

Does anybody know how this might fit into Adolf Zucker's
family history?

Thanks!

Re: Hungarian Industrial Directory 1893 (actually, 1891) #hungary

Dolph Klein <kledolph@...>
 

Radix is a legitimate web site that provides a lot of useful information. I
have been a subscriber for several years and anytime an issue arose, Janos
Bogardi has responded in a positive way. He can be contacted at
janos@bogardi.com.

Hi Fellow Siggers,

I am hoping someone can help with the Hungarian Industrial Directory of 1893
that is available on Radix.

After being unable to open the records (yes, I paid my money) and receiving
no help despite several requests, I went to the Erwin Szabo Library in
Budapest and consulted the original work, which, alas, is in deplorable
condition. Unfortunately it is organized in a way that makes it impossible
to search for names, only by trades, which of course I do not know.

I have found some of my Podvinecz, Podvinec, Podwinets, Podvinietz, etc.
relatives by luck and chance but not in anyother way.

Any clues how to ywork the Radix site, or have i been hopelessly ripped off?

Thanks

Peter Bakos

Aczel from Baja/Budapest #hungary

peter bakos <pgbakos@...>
 

Hello >from Baja in Hungary,

Today I had a very productive time in the local Archives here thanks to the
help of the registrar who was very kind and helpful.

I have been led to a strand for which I am seeking aid. (As usual, in
Genealogy when achieving an answer one finds at least two new questions).

Netti Podvinecz married Armin Aczel in Baja on the 23rd of May 1905. He was
the son of Lipot Wiesel and Fani Bauer and was born on 16 June 1880. They
had at least four children born in Baja, as follows:
Margit, b 18 apr 1906, died same year; Erzsebet born 15 July 1907, died in
Budapest IX on 28 Aug 1985; Lazslo b. 11 June 1909, died in Baja on 5 Oct
1950; and Pal, b. 27 apr 1913, d Budapest XI 1994.

Anybody have any information on any of these persons?

There is no record of death for Netti in Baja through 1950. One of her
sisters and one cousin is commemorated at the Library here (which is the
former Synagogue) on a memorial plaque of victims of the Shoah.

Thanks

Peter Bakos

German towns #germany

Hanna K. Grossman <hannakg@...>
 

Thank you to all who answered my request for the location of some
German towns; most answered privately. After all that help, I still
cannot find Weidenreich, Wiesbach, Bonfeld and one has been added:

Stebback

These do not seem to be mentioned on cemetery lists or maps,
or current zip information.
