Re: 1828 Census Places - Kolozsvar #hungary

Dear H-SIGgers:
Is it possible to know if Kolozsvar megye is included in the 1828 Census,
because it does not appear anywhere ? It is Transylvania, and I do not know
if by that time it was considered as part of Hungary, or it was an
independent principality.

Digital records not so good for archives #general

Babette C Bloch <bvcb@...>
 

An Associated press article by Anick Jesdanum appeared in the San
Francisco Chronicle, among others, the last few days, discussing the fact
that archivists can't rely on digital storage because technology is
changing so quickly that older formats can't be read by newer programs.

This includes digital photography, which can lose details as it's
converted >from one format to another.

A serious consideration for those of us who are storing all our
genealogical information in various computer programs such as FTM, which
may not be readable by our children's computers!

R' Mordechai ZACKHEIM of Ruzhnai and Pinsk #rabbinic

Yonatan Ben-Ari <yonatan@...>
 

Reviewing family sources, I see the following quote:

"Zkenty, Marat Sarah Hinda, hayta mimishpachat ... r' Chaim
MiVoloshin ... nitgadla(?) biveit hatzadik r' Mordechai me-ir
Ruzhynai..."
(My ggm was of the family of R' chaim of Volozhin, and
grew up(?) in the home of R' Mordechai of Ruzhynai.)

from other sources, I presume (since my ggf came >from Karlin) that
this R' Mordechai of Ruzhynai is the same as R' Mordechai ZACKHEIM,
who went >from Ruzhynai to Pinsk. In another source the name
R' Eliezer of Ruzhynai appears.

Does anyone know anything about the family life of R' Mordechai
ZACKHEIM?

I was in touch with George Sackheim of Chicago, but have lost his
address. If he or anyone else can shed some light on the above
details I would appreciate it.

The family name of the above Sorah Hinde may have been SCHATZ. Her
father's name was Yoseph who was the Chazan of Pinsk (or Karlin).
That's why I am not sure if that was their family name or not.

Thank you in advance.

I apologise for repeating this message but all my files have been

Re: 1828 Census Places (Uj-Feherto?) #hungary

Dolph Klein <kledolph@...>
 

At or near the beginning of each film for the 1828 Hungarian Taxable
property owners, there is a list of the towns that are covered in the body
of the microfilm. The towns are in alphabetical order with an assigned
number. If Uj-Feherto is on this list, it should be in the body of the
film in numerical order. If the town is indeed missing as you claim then
check the two towns that sandwich Uj-Feherto to see if their number
corresponds with the list at the beginning of the list. Perhaps the town is
misplaced and is elsewhere on the same film.I've seen similar errors before.

Dolph Klein
Chapel Hill, NC

From: Ujfeherto@aol.com

I notice that Uj-Feherto is listed under the Szabolcs Megye towns. I've
examined the LDS film for the 1828 Census of Szabolcs Megye several times
carefully and I've never been able to find the entry for Uj-Feherto.

Does anyone know if the 1828 census entry for Uj-Feherto really exists (or
why it might be missing >from the film strip)?
