location of Zal Kedrova/Sala Kedrowa #yiddish

Paula Eisenstein Baker
 

Dear listers,

I am trying to locate a hall called "Zal Kedrova/Sala Kedrowa."

According to information on a poster, Leo TSEYTLIN produced a concert there Sat,
July 22, 1922; his wife, Esther SITITSKAIA, sang, and he may have performed
(on viola). At that time they were living in Vilna, so I have always assumed that
the concert took place there, but a research librarian in Vilnius who
investigated it thoroughly (and whom I trust) tells me that there has never
been a hall by that name in Vilna. So . . .

Possible clues for where the concert took place:

(1) The poster was printed in Vilna, so I assume the concert took place
not far >from there, BUT there seems to be no mention of it in the Vilna
newspapers, so maybe it didn't. The posters are small enough
(approximately 19 x 24 in.) that they could have been carried easily.

(2) The poster is in two languages, Yiddish and Polish (NOT Russian).

(3) No address is given for the hall; either the city was small enough that no
address was necessary, OR the hall was very well known. A dance followed the
concert.

(4) Tseytlin and his wife were both originally >from Pinsk; possibly it took
place there.

Private replies, please, to <eisenbak@stthom.edu> unless you think they are of
interest to the group. Please excuse multiple postings.

Revesz family #hungary

annsel <annsel@...>
 

Dear Genners:

I am looking for any members of the Joseph Revesz family who lived in NY,
specifically Manhattan Bronx & Arverne Queens. The family had 4 daughters. I
believe there may be a link to my Great Grandmother Esther Revesz Schwach.
Any help would be greatly appreciated. I would also like to hear >from the
lady who wanted to know of my Berkovic, Grosshandler connections >from M.
Jestreb. M. Jestreb was a very small town and I really know very little
about it. It was or maybe still is in Zemplen Megye, nearest big town Kiraly
Helmcz Slovakia.If anyone can add any information about this town I would
like to hear >from them. I want to thank all those who took the time to
translate Rosenbaum documents for me. It has been a tremendous help. This
group is great!

illegitimate #hungary

Mehadrin@...
 

In a message dated 8/9/04 2:34:53 AM, h-sig@lyris.jewishgen.org writes:

n Munkacs, my grandparents had a Jewish marriage ceremony about 1909. My
father was born 1910 and listed in the birth record with his mother's
surname.
In 1915, they had a civil ceremony.

My questions:
1. I assume that my father used and was recognized by his father's name
in shul. Correct?
Of course
2. Would my father and other children in similar circumstance,
have used the father's surname for school or for Yeshiva?
Usually, everyone would refer to him by his father's family name, except for
official purposes
3. What surname would the community have used for him, such as for government
records?
Mother's name
4. In order to use his father's surname, did my father have to legally
change his surname?-- In Hungary? In USA?
Yes. Either.
5. When my grandparents had their civil ceremony, did the government finally
recognize all of the children as my grandfather's?
They probably always recognized his father's contribution, often the original
birth register includes a note as to who the father was.

Deutsch - Mad #hungary

Diane Rabson <dmrabson@...>
 

The Deutsch family is prominent in Mad, not far from
Miskolc. When I was there in July visiting the Mad
synagogue, some Deutsch descendants now living in
America had either just visited or were also visiting.
The people we spoke to in the town were quite excited
about that, and asked if I was related to the Deutsch
family. I recently browsed the LDS microfilm for Mad
(births, deaths and marriages) and saw quite a few
Deutsches.
