Dear Leslie,

Dr. Lindner did not speak to me about his family history, since his
project is not genealogical in nature. Why don't you just e-mail him
directly (linchess@hdsnet.hu) and ask him?

Uri Jakubovic
 

Dear Genners,

I want to let you know about a new booklet that may be useful to some of you: "'Aliyyatah ushki'atah shel yahadut Zilina" (read: Zhilina). That means: "The rise and fall of the Jewish community of Zilina". This booklet is in Hebrew, but there is an English version too. Its author is Dr. Haim Gordon and he himself published the booklet. It contains about 52 pages including: 1) A preface 2) The history of the Jewish community in Zilina >from its beginning till today 3) A list of "Righteous Among the Nations" >from Zilina who saved Jews 4) Bibliography 5) A list of 2668 Holocaust victims of Zilina (these names are written in Latin letters) 6) A list of 45 Jewish fighters of Zilina killed as partisans and soldiers on all fronts in the Second World War (written in Latin letters as well). The booklet contains some photographs.

You can order this booklet by writing a letter to

Re: Hungary versus Austria?? #hungary

Robert Neu
 

Of the areas of Hungary that became Austria after World War I, the most
likely is what is referred to as the "Burgenland". However, to answer
the question it is necessary to know the towns and records you are
looking for.

In
1910 they listed Hungary, in 1920 Austria. Is this because of shifting
country lines?? If so, what region should I be concentrating on

information regarding this family?

Not one document has listed a county or city for place of birth! This
includes passenger records, applications for citizenship, Social
Security
applications, death records.

Hello Dianne,

the area that was part of Hungary in 1910 and after the Trianon peacetreaty
of 1920 Austria, is known as Burgenland, now Austria, formerly Hungary. It is
approximately at the North-West corner of Hungary. At that time they wanted
to annex to that area also the city of Sopron, but that effort was defeated. So
Sopron is still Hungary.

Viewmate Files #poland

Caryl Simon-Katler <csimon@...>
 

Hello All,

I'd appreciate help translating the writing on the backs of several
family photographs >from the 1920's. They are Viewmate files 3159, 3160
and 3161. One is in Yiddish, one in Polish and one in what appears to
be an odd form of transliterated Yiddish.

They can be found at http://data.jewishgen.org/viewmate/toview.html
Please send any responses directly to me.

Thanks for your help and a happy Thanksgiving to all.

researching: SZAFRAN from Przasnysz #poland

Marty Meyers <meyers01@...>
 

Jankiel (34) and Fayga (29) SZAFRAN came through ellis island
in 1922 with their children Srul (7), Necha Ryfka (5) and Dwora (3).
Jankiel listed a brother Feiwel SZAFRAN back in Przasnsyz and said that
they were going to Kalamazoo, Michigan.

In my family tree, Necha Ryfka ALLENSZTEJN (b.1854) married Hersz SZAFRAN
in 1873.

I assume, >from the Necha Ryfka connection, that Jankiel was a son of
Necha Ryfka and Hersz.

If this sounds familiar, please contact me privately at
<meyers01@comcast.net>

Thanks,

Marty Meyers

Frequency of Finding Age Discrepancies #romania

Michelle Frager <lulu_brooks@...>
 

Dear List:

Recently different people have written about ages of ancestors that
conflict among found records, or with family information. It's a
given that ages were played around with for one reason or another,
depending on the circumstances.

Often, births weren't recorded with civil authorities for as many as
several years because people didn't travel to the civic center, or
didn't want a son's birth registered. There were other reasons as
well. It is interesting that the Reviskii Staskii (sp?) have a
twin-set of columns relating to age. Loosely translated: "Age by
Documents/Records" and "Age by Appearance."
