Hi Henry, My father's name was also Henry Schwartz and they lived in
Homestead. My Grandmother's maiden name was Moskowitz and my friend in
school was Fayge Mermelstein. All coincidence I guess. There is a good book
out called >from Shtetel to Milltown and it is about the people in that part
of country. If anything sounds familiar please respond.. Judith Dennen:

Hi Jerry,

I don't know much about the community in McKeesport, I myself am
interested
in it as well. Allot of my great uncles and aunts immigrated to the US
and settled in McKeesport between 1900's till mid 1900's. I also know
that my great grandfather came to McKeesport to work in a Cole-mine
for 3 years
but
then he went back to Hungary. I have also come across a name Meyer
Kessler on the Ellis Island manifest. The family that I am researching
on are (spelling various) Markovics, Katz, and Izsak. If you find out
anything on the community or how to obtain information please let me
know I would love to get more information about McKeesport.

Thank You

I've recently found that my ggf, Rabbi Joseph Zeisler, was the first
spiritual leader of Temple B'nai Israel in McKeesport, Pennsylvania,
USA
in
1912. It is my understanding that McKeesport once had a very large
Hungarian
Jewish community. I was wondering if anyone could provide any
information regarding the congregation that began in 1912? I've been
in contact with
the
AJA in Cincinnati and the Temple's web site, but I was hoping that
there might be someone here who would have additional information.

Henry asks about those infamous Hungarian census documents. In the early
1990s, Gabriel Bar Shaked, who then worked at Yad Vashem, showed me (and
others) information >from these censuses. They formed the basis of the work
he described at the 1994 Jerusalem genealogy conference. Bar Shaked no

My question is this: Has anybody >from this group ever seen any of these

Henry Wellisch

At the end of April, Israeli Foreign Minister, Shimon Peres, and Hungarian
Minister of National Cultural Heritage, Zoltan Rockenbauer, signed an
agreement between the Government of the State of Israel and the Government
of the Republic of Hungary allowing copies of Holocaust documents from
Hungarian archives to be transferred to the Yad Vashern Archives.
According to Chairman of the Yad Vashem Directorate, Avner Shalev, this
documentation is extremely important for research into the Holocaust period
in Hungary, as it includes, among other information, that which pertains to
the roundup of the Jews prior to deportation, the aryanization of Jewish
property, and the deportation of the Jews, as well as legal documents and
lists of survivors who returned to Hungary at the end of the war. These
documents will be added to the more than 55 million pages of documentation
already stored in the Yad Vashem Archives.
The agreement concludes a process begun in January 1995, when a team of
researchers, working on behalf of the Yad Vashem Archives, started examining
the majority of Hungary's public archives, copying more than half a million
pages of Holocaust-era documentation on to microfilm. That same year, a
personal data protection act relating to archival documentation was passed
in Hungary, thus disabling such documentation >from leaving Hungary. In 1997,
as a result of Hungarian governmental involvement, a special agreement to
ease the restrictions was negotiated. Due to various technical problems -
such as the instatement of a new Hungarian government- - copies of the
archival material could not be transferred to Yad Vashem's Archives until
now, through the assistance of the Hungarian Ambassador in Israel, Dr. Janos
Hovari.
Over the upcoming six months, Hungary will publicize the archival transfer
of the documents containing protected personal data, in order to allow for
all those desiring for reasons of privacy, to object to their names
appearing on documentation. Following the six-month period, the microfilm
copies will be transferred to the Yad Vashem Archives.

McKeesport #hungary

korman <korman3@...>
 

The book by Pearlman about McKeesport focuses on the small towns, like
McKeesport and Braddock, right near Pittsburgh. I read the book and I
don't recall any mention, other than just in passing, of Scranton.

It is my understanding that a Jewish history of McKeesport was written
within the past 15 years, like a community history, for the anniversary
of some Jewish institution. If you write to the local synagogue, or
maybe to the library in the town, you might get a lead on that
publication. I know about only because I met someone who had read it.

I also have relatives who lived in McKeesport in the late 1800s, early
1900s, and some that are still there today. The surnames are Judkovitz,
Samburg, and Leibovics.

Hello h-siggers,
I, too, have relatives who lived in McKeesport and subsequently in White
Oak, PA. My paternal great aunt, Lena Weiss Gottleib, her husband,Emanuel,
and their four sons: Milton, Harold, Jerome, and Sidney, lived there. Lena's
nieces, Blanche Weiss and Sarah Weiss came to live with her until they
married. Blanche married Frank Schwartz and Sarah married Louis Berky. My
paternal uncles and their wives, Martin and Carrie Weiss and Morris and
Louise Weiss lived in White Oak where Morris widow still resides.
Some members of the extended Weiss clan lived in Homestead also and other
parts of the Pittsburgh suburban area, North Braddock, Monroeville etc.
Joseph, my grandfather, and Rose, my grandmother, lived in East Pittsburgh.
Succeeding generations moved to White Oak, Monroeville, Squirrel Hill, and
other parts of Pittsburgh.
If any of these names ring a bell, please contact me privately.

jewish birth traditions #hungary

As a result of my recent success with locating my
Neumann branch in Belicza [found in the county of
Zala], I have a question about one item of information
on my ggm's brother's birth record.

On these birth records I see a column headed "Name der
Pathen eder Zeugen" that I have surmised is the
witness to the circumcision. Please help me
understand who I should expect these people to be.
How would they be chosen?

In particular, what I really wish to know is that
given that the witness to the eldest son's
circumcision has the surname Kohn -- the same as the
mother's maiden name -- what is the likelihood that he
is her father? Can anything be read into his not
appearing as the witness for later grandsons?

No, Scranton is in NE Pennsylvania and ">from Shetl to Milltown" deals
with the small towns in SW Pennsylvania outside of Pittsburgh.

It covers Litvak, Galizianer and Hungarian Jews. It is a good general
study of how those immigrants settled in the mill towns of SW
Pennsylvania. I was disappointed that it did not adequately distinguish
the experiences of the three groups (which are the three groups of my
own ancestry, in that area).

Success story: found Erno BANO's tombstone (born as Herman BLAU) #hungary

Margarita Lacko <mishpologia@...>
 

Dear H-siggers,

BLAU Herman was born 17 April 1888 in Miskolc, Hungary.
In 1913 he changed his name to BANO Erno (BÁNÓ Erno) and became a technical
photographer in Budapest.
He lived in Budapest VI., Podmaninczky u. 10. He might have had his studio
in Hajos u. 45.

One relative said he died in 1937 >from a spoiled hot-dog eaten at the
International Fair of Budapest where he used to exhibit his photography and
that he is buried in the Kerepesi út cemetery. Another source said he died
in 1942 >from the same reason at the World Fair Exposition in Brussels. The
curator of the Hungarian Museum of Photography wrote that he died in 1941.

For several years I have been trying to find proof of when and where did my
grandfather die.

I just found (actually, he found me) the most fantastic researcher! In one
day he found my grandfather's death record and the next day I had three
photos of his tombstone!

My grandfather died in June 1941 and is buried at the Kozma utca cemetery.
On his tombstone you can read:
BANO Erno
1888 - 1941
NEM FELEJTUNK EL SOHA (we will never forget)
Hirsh Zvi (in Hebrew letters)

My new found cousin (its almost sure we are related through a different
branch), does all kinds of professional Jewish searches. For more
information, please contact me privately (JewishGen policy).

Best regards,
Margarita
