Regarding Yarzheit Observance #general

Dream Builder <dreambuilder@...>
 

I am trying to figure out what day my grandfather died. According to the
Social Security Administration he died in November 1986. According to
Goldsteins' Rosenberg's Raphael Sacks Inc. his yarzheit observance date was
November 29, 2000 or Kislev 2. Kislev 2 in 1986 was December 4th. Would his
yarzheit be observed on his burial date rather than his death date?

My grandmother who lived in the Bronx is buried in Riverside Cemetery in
Rochelle Park, NJ
The Jewishgen website has a section which lists all the cemeteries in
the NY area including NJ. I believe phone numbers are included.

Re: Chicago Trib, Tues., 08/20/02: Re-Discovering Forgotten Cemeteries #general

I read an article in the Tuesday, Chicago Tribune, 08/20/02, about an
extraordinary sixteen year old teenager who began a dedicated plight to
re-discover forgotten cemeteries with a school project. So far, this
person has identified fifty (50) cemeteries "and counting," and brings a
grass mower on each journey. Regretfully, I do not have a copy of this
article. This person may have a list of the information indicated on the
tombstones, and if so, the information may be pertinent to this research
aims of this group.

A reminder to Lviv researchers:

There are numerous records on persons >from Lemberg/Lvov/Lwow/Lviv on
the JewishGen site. Please go to the Holocaust Database at
http://www.jewishgen.org/databases/Holocaust/. Note that there is a
Lvov Ghetto Database. You can do a search on all the files in the
Holocaust database by surname or town name. Search by town-soundex
to pick up variants in spelling--Lvov/Lwow/Lviv, for example-- and
also do a search on Lemberg. Lots of data available.

Re: Riga ghetto #latvia

Sandra and Donald Hirschhorn <donsandyh@...>
 

Mike,

It would be helpful in future if when lists of books are mentioned as you
did, you check if any of the books are on the JewishGen Mall and say so in
your email. For example we do have "Murder of the Jews in Latvia" on the
Mall and also have some of the books mentioned by Saul.

All that is needed is to go into the Mall and type Latvia and then "go" and
the list of books as well as an indication of the number of books on Latvia
will come up. Since the mall is a funding source for JewishGen every little
bit helps.

Thanks,

Don Hirschhorn

Dlhe Klcovo or Hosszumezzo, Slovakia #hungary

Avraham Ofek <avrofek@...>
 

My mother, Leni nee Klein, had always told us that she was born in Dlhe
Klcovo but upon searching the LDS microfilm record of her birth I found that
she was born in Hosszumezzo (which I had never heard of before).
Can anyone tell me anything about these towns/villages or perhaps explain
the discrepancy?Thank you,
Avraham Ofek
Netanya, Israel

Moderator: I would guess that your mother was born before the end of World War I, when Kolcs-Hossumezo, Zemplen megye, was part of Hungary, and grew up in the years following the Treaty of Trianon, when it became part of the new republic of Czechoslovakia and was called Kolcovske Dlhe or Dlhe Klcovo. This place is about 10 km south of Vranov n. Toplou and 20 km or so northwesterly of Michalovce

falun and fürdö #hungary

Jaki <jaki@...>
 

Hello!

I am wondering if these two words mean anything in Hungarian, "falun" and=20
"f=FCrd=F6". Some of my ancestors were born in a little town called Lucski,=
=20
near Rozsahegy. This is how the town is listed on their birth records.

However, on some of the same individuals' marriage records, the birthplace=
=20
is listed as "Lucskifalun" and one marriage was said to have taken place in=
=20
"Lucskif=FCrd=F6." Does "Lucskifalun" mean "born in Lucski" or would there=
be=20
a different town called "Lucskifalun"? I only see one Lucski on an old=20
pre-trianon map I downloaded.

This is not really critical information. I am just curious.

Thanks!

Jaki

Moderator: Lucski was a place in Liptó megye, Németlipcsei jaras (district), now Slovakia. Falun is probably "falu", which means village. Present name may be Luky, Slovakia. I suggest that Lucskifalu is either the same place as Lucski or a small settlement very near by. Comments? A quick review of resources didn't identify Rozsahegy but it could be former name of Roznov, which is not far >from Luky.

Hi everyone!

Does anybody have any clue about where Nagytapolcs=E1ny is/was? I can't
find it in Shetl seeker or on any maps.

Any help would be greatly appreciated.

Cheers,

Caroline McCullough

Moderator: You won't find Nagytapolcsány in current maps because it's the old Hungarian name of a place formerly located in Nyitra megye. Check out Topolcany, Slovakia.

Switzerland to Ukraine, and surname Shvaisberg Puzzle #ukraine

Michelle Frager <lulu_brooks@...>
 

Dear List:

Andrew Blumberg asks if anyone has knowledge of immigration from
Switzerland to Ukraine in the mid-19th C. While I don't, it touches
unexpectedly on a puzzle in our family, an odd surname.

My late paternal uncle by marriage (b. ca 1899), was surnamed
SHVAISBERG in the old country - Podolia. Researches in a Surnames by
Beider (I think) say the obvious: means Swiss mountain, and not too
much else.

I have come across a website >from UA that refers to the area of
Ukraine east of the Carparthians as Little Switzerland because of the
landscape.

Still, we have no sense of whether the family emigrated into Podolia
from Switzerland or nearby, or if they'd been there generations in
so-called Little Switzerland and hence the surname.

Anyone have any info on this? If you do, we'd be grateful to hear
from you at:

Many thanks,
Michelle Frager
