Hohenberg family in Hungary #hungary

Michael Stahre <stahre@...>
 

Dear members

My great grandfather was born in Petersdorf(Peterlak), Hungary.
His name was Emanuel Hohenberg, born 18 December 1863. He later moved to
Vienna, Austria.
Does anyone know anything about him or his family. Family tradition says
that he had a lot of siblings.

Thanks
Katarina Stahre


Where are magazine "The news of Deported People" and newspaper "New Life" #hungary

Susanne Belovari <belovari@...>
 

Hallo! 8.11.00

I have been informed that there was a magazine "The name of deported people"
as well as a newspaper "New Life" that appeared in 1945 after the war. In
those papers, people made inquiries for lost family members. The Jewish
Community seems to have been the publisher?

Does anyone know where these papers are located? In Hungary? and its
National Library? Or?

Also: there seems to be an orbituary collection in Hungary that might
contain obituaries of Jews having died in the holocaust. Does anyone know
where this collection might be located? And has anyone had experience in
using it and thought it useful?

I have already contacted the National Library of Hungary with the above
questions.

Thank you, Susanne Belovari

Recent names of settlements in Slovakia #hungary

novotrade <novotrade@...>
 

Dear Members,
one of the publishing houses in Bratislava published
in 1999 a complete Slovak-Hungarian and Hungarian-Slovak
vocabulary of names of all villages and cities of the recent Slovakia.
The publication contents the former hungarian-sounding names
of all locations in the past and their recent Slovak names=20
and vice-versa.
The book on 240 pages shows a wonderfull resource for all those
who are active in genealogy and/or are studying old records.
The publication was compiled by my close friend Mr. Imre Czibulka.
In the case of interest I am ready to check how to obtain some copies
and be helpfull to send them who is interested.=20
They were printed 500 copies only in the first edition.
About the price I let you know after contacts with the publisher.=20
It will be probably depend on the quantity will be requested.

Till today I have got seven positive requests only.=20
Those are to few to negotiate the publisher to obtain the books=20
for a best price as possible.
Therefore I ask you again if somebody is interested.
=20

Re: Munkacs tax lists #hungary

Roberta Solit <rsolit@...>
 

Congratulations to Mark and Louis for the new additions to our website. A
search of the newest databases yielded info on all 3 families I'm
researching >from the Sub-Carpathian area- O/Estraicher, Rappoport and
Goldenberg! For the first time, I found the name Nachman Rapaport on a
list- >from a list of May 1813 and Feb 1817. Although this is the same
name as my great-grandfather, it is not him. My g-gfather was born around
1840-50. It may be his grandfather?????
Questions pertaining to those new lists are-
Is there more data in the original list than that entered in the database?
What do the dates refer to? Dates taxes were collected?
Thanks,
Roberta Solit



mod.-The only additional information on these lists are columns with numbers indication the amount of taxable items and the categories of taxable items (column headings). The dates of the list refer to the year
in which the lists were prepared. It appears to me, that as soon as the list was completed and certified by the Emperor/Emperess's regional representative it was stamped and dated. I used that date which is the
date also used by the archives. So a tax list of 1843 was done in 1843 or shortly thereafter. LS

In the book "Magyarorszagi Zsidi Hitkozsegeg, 1944 April" (Hungarian Jewis Communities,

County Ung, orthodox, population 530, Tax payer 53, President Mermelstein Markusz,
