Biblical Names #hungary

Tom Venetianer <tom.vene@...>
 

When searching biblical names (Old and New Testament) try this site:
http://bible.crosswalk.com/
A search will return several references for the same name as found in
various sources. Caveat: the search engine will only produce results
with EXACT spellings. Thus Myriam would result in zero finds while
Miriam would return five. Also one can't use the Hebrew and Latin
variants, like Yitzhak for Isaac or Petrus for St. Peter.
Enjoy

MAGERSDORF was the German name of NAGYFALVA, a village in Vas county,
Szentgotthardi district, which today is in Austria and called
MOGERSDORF. As mentioned previously, seemingly this is not the place
Nadia is looking for.

Thank you all for your replies.
I now understand the difficulties I have to deal with.
I do have one note though: my parents visited the Satu-Mare district =

They managed to picture (no xerox machines there) a couple of pages with =
birth records >from 1947-1950 and even >from 1924. The archivist told them =
that records older than 1895, are kept in the national archives in =
Bucharest. (which makes me wonder about records >from this area prior to =
the Treaty of Trianon which should be in Budapest ...)

Moderator VK: Arik's original message (see below) inquired about the availability of census data >from Transylvania. As explained in earlier messages, the area in question was covered by several Hungarian national censuses conducted prior to the Treaty of Trianon, which ceded this area to Romania. Vital records, which were collected by the local rabbi prior to 1895, are a different matter. Copies of these records were supposed to be turned over to the county or regional archives and may be available to those who visit Romania or hire researchers with access to these sources archives. Has anyone found pre-1895 vital records >from areas in presentday Romania in the Hungarian State archives?

Lodz Archives Project -- surname lists updated #poland

Seflaum@...
 

Dear Fellow Researchers,

JRI-Poland has placed online surname lists for several towns in the Lodz
region. These are surnames that appear in the non-microfilmed, archival
Jewish records housed in the Lodz branch of the Polish State Archives. The
majority of the surnames appeared in these towns in the latter part of the
19th century, however, earlier years may be included for some towns.

Surname lists are now online for:
Koniecpol
Konstantynow Lodzki
Lowicz
Ozorkow (data not yet online in the JRI-Poland database)
Pajeczno
Poddebice
Warta
Wielun
Zdunska Wola
Zloczew (data not yet online in the JRI-Poland database)

To view the surnames, access:
< http://www.jewishgen.org/jri-pl/psa/status.htm >
and click "Lodz, phase 1" in the dropdown menu at the top of the page. Then
click a town name in the table to access its surname list.

The up-to-date city of Lodz surname list, 1899-1901, is also now online.
Access the same web page as above, and click "Lodz, phase 2" in the dropdown
menu. Then click "Lodz" in the table to access the surname list. The actual

data is online in the JRI-Poland database.

If you have any questions about the surname lists, please contact the town
leader for the appropriate town. I would be happy to answer any questions
about the Lodz Archives PSA Project.

Shirley Rotbein Flaum

German Jewish History Awards #germany

Arthur Obermayer <obermayer@...>
 

This is a reminder that the deadline for submission of nominations for
German Jewish History Awards is September 20, 2002. These awards will
be given to five Germans who have made extraordinary contributions to
preserving the Jewish history, culture, cemeteries and synagogues in
their local communities. Thousands of Germans have carried out such
activities as volunteers because they feel it is the right thing to do -
the preservation of Jewish material is one of the few ways in which they
can respond constructively to their country's horrible past. We, as
Jewish genealogists, are the recipients of their good work.

These awards are sponsored by the GerSIG, the German-Jewish Community
History Council, and the Berlin Parliament. Many of you previously
submitted worthy nominations. Those nominees who have already received
Certificates of Commendation are prime candidates for this year's
awards, and will only require updating of the submissions.

This will be the third year for such awards, which will be given on
January 27, 2003, the German Holocaust Memorial Day (the anniversary of
the liberation of Auschwitz). Each awardee and their spouse will be
invited on an all expenses paid trip to Berlin to receive the award at
the Plenary Chamber of the Abgeordnetenhaus, the home of the Berlin
Parliament. The honorees will receive a framed certificate and an
honorarium to be used for the furtherance of their work. Awardees'
contributions will be described to attendees and to the local, national
and international news media. Last year's awards received extensive news
coverage, including The New York Times, the Associated Press, Jewish
Telegraphic Agency, and a great many German daily newspapers, as well as
specific articles in American Jewish weeklies.

If you know someone who may be appropriate for nomination, further
information -- including the Call for Nominations and profiles of
previous award winners and the jury -- can be obtained at

http://home.attbi.com/~obermayer/award

You may obtain a hard copy of the Call for Nominations by sending an
email to

germanaward@hotmail.com

or a letter to the German-Jewish Community History Council, 239 Chestnut
Street, West Newton, MA 02465 USA or to Hendrik Kuebler, Referat
Protokoll, Abgeordnetenhaus von Berlin, D-10111 Berlin-Mitte, Germany.

Remember that the deadline for submission of nominations is September
20, 2002 -- only three weeks away!
