more ROTHSCHILD/ Heldenbergen #germany

Sharan E. Newman
 

Since my post a few days ago I have received several messages asking for
more ROTHSCHILD information.

This family came >from the town of HELDENBERGEN in Hesse. My branch left
in the 1850's but I have some information on those who remained and a
small amount on other Jewish families there.

My family:

Samuel ROTHSCHILD b. Dec. 23, 1814 son of David Abraham ROTHSCHILD and
Hindle ROTHSCHILD (cousins)
he married Amalia (Malge) STRAUSS d. of Marks (Max Mordechai)
and Henrietta STRAUSS.

All their children were born in NYC, Hannah, Max, Minnie, Ralph and Katy.

Samuel ROTHSCHILD had siblings: Blinga (b. 1816) Aron (b. 1817) Michela (b.
1819) Kendel (b. 1820) Matheus (b. 1822) Abraham (b. 1824 m Hanchen ZEFF)
Judle (b. 1826) Betta (b. 1828) Elle (b. 1830) Wolf (b. 1833) Anselm (b.
1835) and Sarah (b. 1839)

Other names >from Heldenbergen are, SCHEUER, SUSKIND, STRAUSS, SPEIR,
WERTHEIMER, SCHATZMANN, GERSON AND HAAS.

Jewish soldiers >from Heldenbergen who died in WWI were: Friedrich HERMANN,
Albert ROTHSCHILD and Adolf WERTHEIMER.

I hope this will be of use to someone.

In the course of compiling the Language and Culture Atlas of
Ashkenazic Jewry we sometimes had trouble locating the places >from which our
interviewees came. One such hard to find place had the Yiddish name of
Mogndorf. Its Slovak name was Velky Mager. As I recall, we did succeed in
locating it and its location is given in the second volume of the Atlas.

According to the Univ. of Texas Population Research Center, which claims to have approximately 85% of all of the known pooulation census pulications >from all countries in the world either in hard copy or on microfilm, Hungary conducted national censuses in 1880, 1900, 1910, when Transylvania was part of Hungary. there was also a 1920 census that preceded the Treaty of Trianon and may include Transylvania. The Population Research Centrer Library makes census volumes availably through interlibrary loan except for fragile materials or when it holds the only copy.

Clearer copies from microfilm #general

This also goes for the NYC Municpal ARchives at 31 Chambers St. If you get

Fran Segall's question about alternatives to the NARA microfilms for
Boston arrivals reminds me of my experience at the Washington NARA.
After trying to read an illegible microfilm, I asked an attendant if
there were any other copies. His reply was negative, and he as much as
said to forget about being able to read the film.
After I got back home, I ordered the same microfilm through the local
Mormon library, and was able to read the microfilm that they provided.
So, don't give up; see if the film can be ordered >from another source to
receive a more legible copy.

Re: Going to Latvia in October #latvia

Dear Yehuda

It is necessary to write to the Archives ahead of your trip as you will not
be able to get info if you just arrive at the Archives. Please consult the
SIG webpage for details on how to consult and send an E-mail telling them
when you will be coming in and they will do their best to help you. There
is a big backlog at the moment but they do try to help researchers who come
in person.
If you are going round with Aleks he will give you a price on going with
you as he has a friend who drives a taxi. You must get him to give you a
quote before you depart as you need to know the charges.It would be very
difficult for you outside Riga to find people who speak English and he
could also take you to places of Jewish interest.

You can use the cash machines and do not need to worry about currency in
Riga but outside Riga you will need cash as you will not be able to use
credit cards. Having some dollar bills in your pocket is also a good idea
for travelling outside Riga.

When travelling outside Riga it is a good idea to take some
fruit,crispbread,dried fruit etc in case you are not able to find suitable
food. Take bottled water with you when travelling outside Riga.

Velky Mager #hungary

I am trying to find out about the little town or
village in Southern Slovakia called Velky Mager. If
I
remember correctly there was a Maly Mager. It was
situated in the area called Zitny Ostrov. The name
is
prominently featured on one of the monuments in Yad
Vashem, but when I look in the Slovak Encyklopedia I
cannot find it. In hungarian it was called Nagy
Mager
and Kiss Mager.
Could the moderator help me?
Nadia Rosa
Moderator VK: I assume that "Mager" is a misspelling of "Magyar". I don't find any Velky Mager, but there is a Velky Meder, Slovakia, about 25 km northeasterly of Gyor, Hungary. I believe the Hungarian name was Nagy Magyar because large is "velky" in Slovak and "nagy" in Hungarian. Small is "maly" in slovak and "kis" in Hungarian. The 1913 gazetteer lists Nagymagyar in Pozsony megye, Somorjai jaras. there's also Nagymad, Pozsony megye, Dunaszerdahelyi jaras and Nagymajor, Szepes megye, Szepes├│falvi.
