Hungarian passports 1870s, 1880s #hungary

Marian Brown
 

Dear all,

Has anyone actually found (throuh LDS) a passport for an ancestor
leaving Hungary in the last half of the 19th century? I looked at the
LDS list of films (# 845877, 78, 79, 80) for the time period I need, but
the passports seem to have originated in Vienna. Just curious if these
films actually have Hungarian passports before I order the films.

Thank you,

Dear H-Sigers:

Does anyone know anything about the 461/1 KLGS

he was sent to >from a detention camp in Budapest in
December of 1942.

I'm sorry but that is a MICROFILM number. Mormon microfiche are always
numbered 6xxxxxx. I also did a printout for the film and it is definitely a
book, Dewey call number943.9 D4m which has been microfilmed.

Around 1908 a register was published by the Hungarian Government that
listed all the changes in last names of individuals(I don't know the
exact time frame, but certainly includes the bulk of the changes which
occurred late 19th century)

Hello and Where does My Mintus Family Come From? #lodz #poland

Eric and Paula Benjaminson <oregon81@...>
 

Hello LARG members,

I just joined the group. I have been doing genealogical research for about
three years. Mostly I've been working on my Latvian branch, the
BENJAMINSOHNs, so although I've a lot of experience in Jewish genealogy I'm
a novice in Polish Jewish Genealogy research. I consider myself an advanced
computer user, and my experience in using the Internet is extensive. I work
at the American Embassy in Ouagadougou, Burkina Faso in West Africa. My
native language is English and I also know French, Swedish and a little
Latvian.

On the MINTUS side, I have identified the names and birth and death dates
back to my great-grandfather Albert MINTUS (the father of my father's
mother). What has been and continues to be frustrating is that I cannot pin
down where in the Polish/German border area he comes from; I
have contradictory, circumstantial evidence which implies he is either from
Warta or >from Czarnikau (northwest of Posen). I know
he was born in March 1867 and that his father was named Issac or Israel. All
of his American documents that I have collected (marriage certificate, death
certificate, naturalization papers) simply list "Germany" or "German
Poland". I
also know that he immigrated to New York in August 1888 on the
SS Rhynland >from Antwerp, but the passenger
manifest frustratingly lists his residence as "England" (where I presume
he lived for a short time)!

Thus, my primary research goal now is to find out which town Albert MINTUS
came from.
Any help any of you could give that would help me to break through this
"brick wall" would
be much appreciated!
