Re: town identification: Nizhny Sard #hungary

Moshe & Esther Davis <davis@...>
 

I am trying to find the modern name and location for a town called
Nizhny Sard (pronounced Shard). This town should be very close to
Khust, but I can't find any close matches on ShtetlSeeker. I
appreciate your help.

Sincerely,

Moderator VK: There's a Nyz. Selysce just east of Chust.
Possibilities:

Serb 4746 N 2357 E (southeast of Chust, near Sziget)

Nizni Seliste 4811 N 2327 E (slightly NE of Chust, directly east of
Iza)

Nyereshaza (Neresniza) 4807 N 2348 E (east of Chust)

Nizni Studeny 4842 N 2322 E (north of Chust and Volove)

Re: GLASER / LEMPKE / MEYER #general

Claire Petersky <cpetersky@...>
 

I am stummped and sometimes some of the good people on this list come
through with some help. Please read if the names GLASER of Courland or
LEMPKE or MEYER mean anything to you. So here goes:
If LEMKE could be LAMCHEN, I have an Abraham LAMCHEN in my tree (1885-1946)
who was born in Sassmachen (now Valdemarpils), in Courland. LAMCHEN became
LAMKEN after immigration. He had five brothers, any of which could be your
unknown LEMPKE. Their father was Schlomo LAMCHEN, who had two brothers,
Fivia and Zelig. I don't know their descendents, but they could also be
ancestors to your LEMKE.

As for GLAZER/GLASER, I get the impression they're a dime a dozen in
Courland. I have two unrelated in my tree. Itzig GLASER (b. Tukums) married
Zerne ISAACSON (b. 1853) in Sassmachen in 1853. I do not know the names, if
any, of their children.

My great-great-grandmother, Mollie GLAZER married Wolfe WEINBERG and was
probably >from Windau. I have no information about her family line previous
to her.

I doubt this helps, other than to spark your imagination in thinking
perhaps of other spellings of the name that might lead you to find the
people you seek.

In connection with my previous posting looking for information:

His family originated >from lands they owned around the town of
Recklinghausen in Westphalia. The title dates back to the crusades ( early

Try www.natarch.hu it has an English version, although it is not user friendly, but print out the Guide to Family History Research.

I also think that the list is not complete. For example: Batya Jewish records are not listed, but it was microfilmed by the Mormons.

Hungarian Archives Site #hungary

I tried this site but unfortunately I can't read Hungarian. Do you know if
this site can be found in the English language?

Thanks,

Hank Greenberg

Moderator VK: If you go to the Archives main page you can click on English. This will help you to navigate the site but won't help with translating the entries. Click on "Help" at the bottom of the Parish register page and you get the instructions pasted below.

I can't read or speak Hungarian either but after a decade of research am somewhat familiar with terms that are frequently found in records used for genealogical research. The Family History Library has a brief guide to such terms that you should be able to purchase for about $1 at your local FHL. I would also encourage you to get a good Hungarian-English dictionary. I use NTC's Hungarian and English Dictionary, which sells for about $24US in paperback.

<<SEARCH IN THE PARISH REGISTER DATABASE

The National Archives of Hungary has microfilmed all the available parish registers kept in Hungary as well as some registers >from the neighbouring countries >from the beginning up to 1st of October 1895 when state registering started in the country. (In case of Burgenland [Austria] we filmed the state registers instead of the parish ones.) The parish registers were microfilmed in order of religions, church administration districts and localities.

The database contains the most important data of this collection such as religion, locality, variant of place-name, type of the register (birth, marriage, death, mixed), year range, number of frames, microfilm reel number. (Detailed information about making research in the parish register collection see in the Home Page, chapter Research, sub-chapter Family History Research.)

This means that you cannot search personal names in the database since it only contains place-names.

When searching in the database first you have to choose the religion (or do not choose anything, so the computer will search in all registers), then enter the place-name (church) you look for. Words can be written both in upper or lower case, no matter how they are in the table. It is not necessary to give the whole title or name to be searched but enough to enter a part of it. You may also use asterisk (*) replacing omitting characters or double forward slash (//) separating two strings which results alternative searching.

The use of Hungarian characters (ÁÉÍÓÖO"ÚÜU" áéíóöo"úüu") can be difficult if no appropriate code page and keyboard are available. These characters can also be transferred >from this screen by Windows clipboard.

The computer displays not only the data of the found registers but also the name of the church and the administration district the listed localities belonged to in the time of microfilming.

You can move in the list of hits by PgUp, PgDn as well as by mouse.

The fields on the screen are as follows:

RELIGION: you have to choose the religion(s) by clicking.

CHURCH: you have to enter the place-name (or its variants) where the registration happened.

CASE INSENSITIVE: if there is ‘X’ in the box the computer does not make difference between lower and upper case. If the box is empty it does, and only the records which contain absolutely identical strings will be listed.

WHOLE WORDS ONLY: if there is ‘X’ in the box the computer looks for the string like a separate word, i.e. a string preceded and followed by spaces or hyphens. If the box is empty the found string may be also a part of a word.

The buttons on the screen are as follows:

SEARCH: you start searching.

CLEAN: you delete the texts in the search field.

INVENTORY SEARCH: you go over to the National Archives’ inventory search screen.

INVENTORY LIST: you go over to the National Archives’ inventory list screen.
