Thank you all who wrote to me about how to check on names. Those who said
that probably a firewall or a prevention to pop up ads may be culprit, I
think that you are right.

Now if I could only figure out how to disable them temporarily.

Thanks for any input.

Grossman Family Roots #hungary

Mike & Anne Beaudreau <beaudreau@...>
 

Hello!
I am trying to find out any information concerning my
great-grandmother's family. Her name was Dora Grossman. She was
married to Joseph Feuer. Dora came into this country in the early to
mid-1880s >from Hungary. It is said the family was >from Budapest, but
this is not proven. Her parents names were Mendel and Raisel Grossman.
I believe Mendel came into this country, but I cannot find any trace of
Raisel. Dora and Joseph are both buried in Mt. Hebron in NYC. I was
told it was in a Hungarian section.

Also, a pamphlet in a family members storage box recently surfaced. It
was >from 1947 and was for a family reunion they called the Grossman
Family Circle. If anyone has ever heard of this, please contact me.
These were regular family meetings with a formal board and sponsors. My
grandmother, Ruth Feuer Kornfield, mentioned this when I was a little
girl. My grandmother, by the way, was the baby of 10 children that
Joseph and Dora had. The names of the children are as follows:

Henrietta Feuer Zimmerman
Beatrice Feuer Holpert
Anna Feuer Simon
Rose Feuer Levy
Martin Feuer
Emanual Feuer
Frieda Feuer Wasserstrom
Samuel Feuer
Frances Feuer Katz
Ruth Feuer Kornfield (Kornfeld)

Thanks!

Skot Iskola #hungary

Margarita Lacko wants to find out if the Vorosmarty
Mihaly Iskola and the Skot Iskola are the same. The
Vorosmarty Mihaly school's history, according to their
website, began in 1975. They say that the school has
a famous history. The former school was founded by a
Scottish Mission. Thus, the Vorosmarty and the
Scottish schools are the same.

forced labor on Haros-Sziget #hungary

Margarita Lacko <mishpologia@...>
 

Dear H-siggers,

My grandfather, Jeno LEICHT, did forced labor on "Háros-Sziget"
(Haros-Island) in 1941.

Any idea where can I find more information? (unit, how long he was there,
etc.)

Best regard,
Margarita

Skot iskola, Budapest #hungary

Margarita Lacko <mishpologia@...>
 

Dear H-siggers,

Not long ago I found out my mother went to the Skot iskola in Budapest. One
of her best friends was RUTTKAI Eva.

Doing an Internet search, I found the following:

Vörösmarty Mihály Általános Iskola
1064 Budapest, Vörösmarty u. 49.
A Vörösmarty Mihály Általános Iskola a VI. kerületben, az Andrássy út,
Teréz körút, Podmaniczky utca, Izabella utca által határolt rész
középpontjában, \"Terézváros szívében\" helyezkedik el. Intézményünk neves
múltra tekint vissza. Elodjét a Skót Misszió alapította, melynek jelszava:
\"How to do good?\" (Hogyan tegyünk jót?), és ez a gondolat hatotta át a
nevelési módszereket.

Would this be the same school?

Best regards,
Margarita
