request for recommendation for family tree software #hungary

Mayim Rubin <mayim36@...>
 

i am looking for recommendations for affordable (about
$100.00 or less) family tree software.

I have my family tree(s) composed using ORG.EXE , a
DOS based program used for organizational charts.I
would like to convert it, if possible to a WINDOWS
based product. I would like the product to be
compatible or upgradable with WINDOWS 95 and WINDOWS
NT.

Currently I am looking into 'FamilyTreeMaker' by 2
separate companies, 'Genealogy', and 'Broderbund'. If
anyone has any experience / and/ or recommendations
for family tree software that is a stable and
establishede product that will be supported for many
years, please email me.

Thank you very much.

Hello,
My father's aunt Sarolta MALCZ(MALTZ)nee TURK disappeared with her son Imre MALCZ during the Holocaust. The last known place of residence was Szerencs in Zemplen Megye. Does anyone know where and when residents of Szerencs were deported? Where should I begin my search? Thank you for any guidance.

Moderator VK: Have you suggested to Tracy that she check closely to see whether the name might be Horvath? In that case, the victim would have been a Hungarian and this info might help her to trace survivors.

Re: Adoption of family name ICHENHAUSER adopting place name #germany

Ernest Kallmann [mailto:ernest.kallmann@...] asked:

"While transcribing the 1813 Judenmatrikel for Ichenhausen, Bavaria (in
fact the list of family heads with their former names and with their
newly adopted given names and permanent family names) we stumbled over #
174 Joseph b. Simon adopting the name of Joseph ICHENHAUSER. For both of
us it is the first occurrence of a Jew adopting as his family name one
deriving directly >from the place where he lives.
1. Have similar facts occurred in other places and with the name of
that place ? If so, please give us the facts. --------

Yes, I found several cases in the list of naturalized Jews in the
Breslau departements of Silesia:
GUTTENTAGER in Guttentag
KEMPEZOWITZ in Kempezowitz
MUENSTERBERG in Muensterberg
MYSLOWITZER in Myslowitz
OELSNER in Oels
PLESSNER in Plesse
PROSKAUER in Proskau
WIENSKOWITZER in Wienskowitz
And, of course, many SCHLESINGER and DEUTSCH:
I suppose that there were different reasons for adopting a place name
before and after there was a legal obligation to take permanent family
names.

BEFORE, additional names indicating >from what region (e.g. "Fraenkel")
or town (e.g. "Oppenheim[er]") someone came, were adopted or, probably
more often, used by others, to distinguish him >from other men with the
same given and patronymic names. Such names were not necessarily
permanent: Moses Jacob >from Frankfurt would become, in Hamburg, Moses
Jacob Frankfurter. But when he moved on to Breslau, he would be called
Moses Jacob Hamburger. If he remained in Breslau until 1814, Hamburger
would become his permanent family name because he was used to it.

Why did some Jews after 1814 chose the name of the place in which they
lived? In some cases, it might have been just a lack of imagination.

For others, there might be another reason: I don't think that the name
DEUTSCH was ever adopted outside the German speaking countries. They
would have used the translated name ("GERMAN", "L'ALLEMAND" etc)

I suggest that a Jew taking the name DEUTSCH wanted to indicate that he
was assimilated and had to be considered as a German citizen (or,
rather, "subject") with equal rights. The Prussian "Stein-Hardenberg"
reforms which gave the Jews the right to be naturalized were decided
after the Napoleonic wars. I am just back >from Wroclaw (Breslau) where
in the Jewish cemetery one can see tombstones of that period for
volunteers, killed in action. It would be quite normal in this patriotic
and optimistic time to adopt the family name DEUTSCH - or, in a more
humble spirit, the name of the village in which one lived.

change, which occurred after the immigration

It is not known whether the naturalization

EHRMANN family of Bonfeld, Germany #general

andrew.barrettbettcher@...
 

Hello, I am researching my Ehrmann family in Bonfeld, Wurttemberg Germany.

As far as I know, they are not Jewish. However, I found a surname index at
my university library that says that the name EHRMANN is Jewish. I have
traced them back to Johann Albrecht Ehrmann, born about 1690 location
unknown, died 1 Jan 1762 in Bonfeld. He married a Maria Elis. Strieb and
their children were baptized in the Lutheran Church in Bonfeld. I have
found that there were many Jewish settlements in this part of Germany and
am wondering if it is remotely possible that he was a convert to
Lutheranism??
Am I off track?

German Seaside Resort of Arendsee Correction to Archives #germany

Pete Vanlaw <pvan@...>
 

I recently made a first time visit to the GerSig Archives, and found both
a message I'd sent last year requesting information, and one reply to that
querey. However, the primary answer I needed did not make it into the
archives. So, the information is at best only partial, and should be, if
not corrected, then augmented.

The question was regarding the location of two German Seaside Resorts,
dating back to the 1920s; Wyk and Arendsee. The information that came back
regarding Wyk seemed correct. However, my main search was for Arendsee.

Currently their are two Arendsees on the map, but neither of them on the
ocean, although one is on a lake. Therein lies the confusion.

The answer I needed came >from Yvonne Adler, who explained that Arendsee,
the seaside resort has had its name changed. Unfortunately, her reply did
not make it into the archives. Yet, this information is very important and
needs to be made known to other researchers.

Here's Yvonne's reply:
"...A fellow GerSiger was in the identicle position you have found
yourself:
postcards >from sea resorts on the North Sea with unknown names stamped
on the frontice piece. "Arendsee" is one of the names I checked out for
her. Renamed "KUEHLINGSBORN" in the 1930's, it can be found at "Google,"
(with and without the umlaut). Not only does it still exist, the summer
hotel-life which our grandparents enjoyed is truly enviable.
Yvonne Adler, Los Angeles"

I want to thank John Lowens, a GerSig Moderator, who suggested I send
this, since the archives cannot be changed. Regards,
