Rhode Island Cemetery Help #general

amagilne <amagilne@...>
 

I have a death certificate indicating an ancestor's burial in the "Jewish
Cemetery" in Rhode Island, probably in or near Providence, in 1905. I can find
no current listing for this cemetery. Can anyone in Rhode Island help me out?
Please reply privately.

Re: Jewish Roots traced to Tes, Veszprem, Hungary? #general

I cannot help, except to point out that Magashegyi is the exact Hungarian
equivalent of Hochberger. The use of the "i" at the end indicates a Jew
hungarianising his name. However, 1860 is a little early for that generally.

ANNOUNCEMENT - 22ND IAJGS INTERNATIONAL CONFERENCE #hungary

JGS of Canada (Toronto) <info@...>
 

THE PORTAL TO THE MAJOR EVENT OF THE JEWISH GENEALOGICAL CALENDAR HAS
ARRIVED

www.jgstoronto2002.ca

This is your GATEWAY to the 22ND IAJGS INTERNATIONAL CONFERENCE ON JEWISH
GENEALOGY where aficionados >from beginner to expert will gather to learn,
study, meet, and plan. This year, the conference will be meeting in
Toronto, Canada, August 4-9, 2002. No effort is being spared to build on
the successes of past conferences. We are assembling the most informative
and skilled lecturers ever gathered together to address the accomplishments
and challenges of Jewish genealogical research.

All of this will take place in a comfortable, conducive environment.
Toronto is a safe, beautiful, clean city, and the Sheraton Centre Toronto is
a wonderful hotel whose facilities and location are ideal for hosting our
programs and activities. The favourable Canadian exchange rates and travel
and accommodation discounts also make this conference very affordable.

Meticulous thought has been given to the design of the Toronto2002
Conference Web site. Visit it yourself at www.jgstoronto2002.ca You can
learn about the hotel accommodations and the programming, sample some of
what Toronto has to offer genealogists and tourists, and actually register
online, if you wish to do so. Online registration and downloadable forms
will be available shortly. Effortlessly, find the answers to FREQUENTLY
ASKED QUESTIONS. Peruse the vast information on speakers and programs,
which we will be updating continuously.

We urge you to register for your accommodations and travel arrangements as
early as possible. Toronto is a very popular summer destination, and while
every effort has been made to ensure the availability of rooms, we cannot
guarantee availability in the conference hotel for those who procrastinate.
Friday and Saturday are particular problems because of the ending of a major
Caribbean Festival in Toronto. Ideally, we recommend arrival Friday August
2, 2002 to ensure a spot in the conference hotel. For those who arrive on
Saturday, we are making alternative one-night arrangements if the Sheraton
becomes overbooked.

REGISTER AND BOOK EARLY FOR SPECIAL CONFERENCE RATES AND FREE HOTEL NIGHT
AND FLIGHT SPECIALS. For further details see the Conference Web site.

PLEASE VISIT www.jgstoronto2002.ca NOW and learn how to register for this
exciting event. You will not want to miss a moment of it.

Thank you for your attention and we look forward to seeing you.

Re: sampling of given name changes #hungary

Robert Neu
 

Just one additional thought. First are hely. and mask. on the same
document? If yes one would assume that the two abbreviations don't have
the same meaning. In that case hely. could be helyesen meaning
"properly" meaning in one case that the second name be "proper" one,
and the in the other case, with mask., the second one being an alias.

1869 Census entry translation assistance #hungary

bhi cc <bhicc@...>
 

Hi h-sig'ers,

Translation assistance with the following would be
greatly appreciated:

Occupation - schuster mister (or schusler misler?)

Profession - onallo (or unallo?)

Birthplace: County - Suanos?, Town- Apina?

Thanks,

Jonathan Horn

Moderator VK: Schuster = shoemaker (Yiddish/Germman) Suanos is probably Saros [megye] and Apina is likely to be presentday Opina, Slovakia, about 20 km northeast of Kosice. As used in the census I think that onallo means "without a job".
