given a name which will "carry on" an honored parent's name.

Manya LIEBERMANN #latinamerica

Johanna Marshall <marshalljohanna@...>
 

I am searching for the family of MANYA LIEBERMANN.

Manya Liebermann left Germany around 1937 or so. She was married and had
four children. Husband's name unknown. She moved to Mexico City with two
of her children, one of whom was named Max (probably Maximillian). One
daughter, Selma, eventually settled in Vienna, Austria. Another daughter,
name unknown, married and settled in London, England.

After the death of the two children in Mexico City, Manya decided to live
out the balance of her life with her daughter in London. She moved to
London at the end of the 1950's and died there sometime between 1956 and
1961.

If you know the family of MANYA LIEBERMANN, please contact me at

While it is part of a small chain, it was a very nice small hotel and near

Also inexpensive for what you get

Near the Dohany Synagogue also

Dear All,

I've booked my flights for a very long-awaited three-week trip to
Hungary and Slovakia and would appreciate info and tips about hotels
and archive visits. Based on what I've found on-line, it seems
that there are
lots of relatively inexpensive hotels in Budapest, which will be our
point of arrival and departure. We would prefer to avoid a
Marriott-Hilton-Holiday Inn-type facility. What are your suggestions
about reasonably priced non-chain accommodations that are close to the
archives and transit? After several days in Budapest we'll be heading
to Miskolc, Debrecen, Kosice, Michalovce and Sobrance, in far eastern
Slovakia. I've found some hotels but would like to find out which are
your favorites.

We expect to spend a lot of time in libraries, archives and cemeteries
and, of course, do plan to spend some time doing the usual tourist
things. We travel light--one carry-on bag each plus a back pack. We
enjoy taverns and don't require kosher food. It would, however, be
nice to sustain ourselves on something other than potatoes, bread,
cheese, cabbage, salami, and beer while we're in Slovakia.

Please give me your suggestions off-line. I promise to compile
responses and contribute them back to H-SIG in the form of a
shtetl-travelers' guide to Hungary and Slovakia.

In the nineteenth century it was fashionable for women

The Hungarian national costume skirts are to this day

Thank you Rabbi Avraham Mamorstein.

Indeed I am referring to this Rabbi. In the book I have it says in
Hungarian: "Edesanja Katz Nina, a hires morvaorszagi talmudkutato es
nikolsburgi forabbi, Bendikt Marcus (1753-1828)".

I know it is hard to read this without the accent marks on the letters
but this sentence indeed mentions the fact that Benedikt Marcus was an
important Rabbi in Moravia and Nikolsburg.

If I understand the sentence correctly (my Hungarian is very poor, I
only heard it spoken at home and all I know is what I picked >from my
late parents) Katz Nina was a descendant of Rabbi Benedikt Marcus. Is
this the proper way to read the above sentence?

We have reasons to believe that Katz Nina is related to my Katz family
and if this is true I am on the verge of a huge breakthrough in my
research.

Thank you very much,

CA deaths before 1930 and finding Jewish temples #general

Seg420@...
 

Chaim Aron KAGAN came into this country between 1910 and 1920. In 1920, he
is living with his daughter and family--Bertha and Joe MINSKY--in Chicago as
Hyman COHEN. He is not found again. My husband and I went to the Jewish
cemeteries in Chicago last fall and did an exhaustive search for him and now
believe that Hyman did not die in Chicago. I believe that he moved to Los
Angeles with one of his children and died before the 1930 census.

In the 1920 and 1930 census, Nathan COHEN is living In Los Angeles City, at
540 St. Louis St.

1920 census, Sarah and Isaac SCHWARTZ are living in Los Angeles City at 611
San Benito and in 1930 in San Gabriel.

In 1930 census, Bella and Bane KATZ are living in Los Angeles City at 336
North Chicago; Bertha and Joe MINSKY were living in El Monte Township on
"Slaughter" (no St. or Ave., or Rd. on census sheet); Bessie and Hyman WEINER are
in El Monte township at 2035 Pomona Blvd; Max POSTER and Sarah are in San
Jose township, 443 Kenoak Dr., Pomona City.

How would I go about finding the Jewish temples they might have attended and
the cemeteries he might be buried in?


Thank you so much!

Chaim Aron KAGAN came into this country between 1910 and 1920. In 1920, he
is living with his daughter and family--Bertha and Joe MINSKY--in Chicago as
Hyman COHEN. He is not found again. My husband and I went to the Jewish
cemeteries in Chicago last fall and did an exhaustive search for him and now
believe that Hyman did not die in Chicago. I believe that he moved to Los
Angeles with one of his children and died before the 1930 census.
