Hi Everyone,

I was wondering if I could get some opinions on a surname that I discovered
from records in Transcarpathian Ukraine. According to transcribed vital
records, the surname is "FIRZEHER". Unfortunately, I am unable to see the
original handwritten name. This family was living in a village near to
Mukachevo (Munkacs) called Nove Davidkov (Ujdavidhaza).

Does this seem like a plausible surname? If not and it is a misspelling, I
have considered that the name is perhaps FIRZIGER, or maybe FISCHER. I
appreciate your thoughts.

Sincerely,
Adam Smith

Jews in Hamilton #general

Hello Group,
I would be pleased to hear >from residents in Hamilton Ontario
Canada or relatives, who have done or are engaged in family
searches of ancestors who came >from Russia and settled in
Hamilton (environs) during the early part of the twentieth
century. I am recommencing my search for information about
my grandparents, who arrived in Hamilton around 1905 (I think),
and became known within the Jewish community. They, along with
some of their children are resting in Hamilton's Jewish cemetery.
Thanks,

Re: Caifa-Turkey #general

Mila Begun <mmbegun@...>
 

Margot Rosanes-Csuka's answer: << My first reaction to your
question was that "Caifa" Turkey would probably be the location
of today's Haifa >> raises another possibility. Since in
Turkish the letter C gets a soft J pronounciation, perhaps the
town in question is Jaffa, when it was part of the Ottoman
Empire, as pointed out by Margot.

Hoping for an expert to clarify and provide a definitive answer.

Kolbuszowa Cemetery JOWBR Project #galicia

Susana Leistner Bloch
 

Dear Kolbuszowers,

A most exciting project has just been announced:

Joyce Field, JewishGen Vice President for Research, has been in touch with
Jacek Proszyk, a brilliant Jewish Polish historian who has done work for JG
before. He will clean up the brush in the Kolbuszowa cemetery, take digital
photographs of all the Matzevot (about 400), translate the inscriptions,
and create a spreadsheet for the JewishGen Online Worldwide Burial Registry
(JOWBR). However, in order to get this work done this Fall we must raise
the required funds immediately.

Joyce approached me as the coordinator of the Kolbuszowa Region Research
Group and asked that we collaborate in this project. Of course our answer
was an unequivocal YES!!!

This would be as most fitting memorial as the photos of the Matzevot
(gravestones) will be preserved for ever against any future vandalism or
damage >from weather and age, and, with the translations of the inscriptions
perhaps even find a family name, a date of death and also a father's name.

You can find out more about JOBWR at
http://www.jewishgen.org/databases/cemetery/.

I am sure that all of you with family ties in Kolbuszowa will want to be
part of this project. For details on how to make tax-deductible
contributions (in the U.S.), please contact:
Joyce Field at: < jfield@nlci.com >
