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.

Dear Mr. Rosenberg,

Being a part-time genealogist, I receive mailings >from various genealogical
organizations. Today, on what such mailing, someone complimented your
website for its global gazetteer. However, it was also noted that Jerusalem
is missing >from the city list of Israel (nor does it appear as

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,
April 1944) there is the following information of Szerednye (I presume it is your Seredne):
County Ung, orthodox, population 530, Tax payer 53, President Mermelstein Markusz,
Birthregistering rabbi (Anyakonyvvezeto rabbi; officially appointed rabbi) Adler Emmanuel

Lodz Archives has erred in processing orders. #lodz #poland

MODERATOR NOTE: Message reposted >from JRI-Poland newsgroup

We recently learned that the Lodz Branch of the Polish State Archives
has made mistakes in processing orders >from researchers using the
JRI-Poland on-line database as the source of information.

In error, they have been sending the photocopies to the Polish Consulate
in New York City. The consulate has then sent form letters asking for an
additional fee.

The two known cases were brought to the attention of the Polish State
Archives and the consulate on Monday. A reply was received today
(by fax) >from the Executive Director of the Polish State Archives
acknowledging the error and assuring us that this would be cleared
up without delay.

In the meantime, should you receive a request for payment from
the Polish Consulate in New York for "copies of vital statistics
documents" relating to an order placed with the Polish State Archives,
kindly refer them to the letter of 6 November 2000 >from Jewish
Records Indexing - Poland (to the Polish State Archives) and
request that they forward the documents without charge. You
may also include a copy of this message with your letter to
the Polish Consulate.

Note, this does NOT apply to any 20th century records that may
have been requested >from Civil Records Offices (Urzad Stanu

Seeking Legal Assistance for American Kindertransport Project #general

Iris Posner
 

Hello everyone. The American Kindertransport Project is an organization
dedicated to documenting the experiences of people who came to the US as
children before and during WWII to escape Nazi persecution, and stayed
with foster families. Our organization has identified almost all 1,000
of these children and is trying to locate them. We are currently
entering this data into a database for the US Holocaust Museum. Our
organization is in need of pro bono legal and accounting assistance to
set up a non-profit foundation to continue this work. We are looking for
people who have legal and accounting skills to help us. Below is more
informtion about us. If you have the legal or accounting experience to
assist please contact us.

American Kindertransport Project
[Priavte address and phone number deleted contact Iris Posner at the
following email address for more information]

Email: iposner@ix.netcom.com

Iris Posner, Co-Director Lenore Moskowitz, Co-Director


Background: The documentary, "Into the Arms of Strangers: Stories of
the Kindertransport," and other similar films and related books, have
successfully raised the awareness of the public regarding the plight and
rescue of almost 10,000 unaccompanied children during the Holocaust by
Great Britain. By comparison, there is no such public familiarity with
the experiences of the approximately 1,000 unaccompanied children,
brought by a variety of organizations and individuals to America before
and during World War II, to stay with foster families, relatives or in
schools, in order to escape persecution in Germany and occupied lands.
America's response to the calamity of the Holocaust as it relates to
children, as well as the experiences of the "American Kindertransports,"
and the people who made their escape >from persecution possible, remains
to be widely told. Although several books exist which expressly and in
detail, address this area of American history, there is no documentary
film in existence which does. It is still an untold story of courage and
sacrifice unknown to most Americans.

Mission: The American Kindertransport Project (AKP) is a privately
funded group dedicated to documenting the experiences of American
Kindertransports and the organizations and people who rescued them.
Most members and supporters of AKP lost relatives or friends during
the Holocaust or have friends or family who came to America or other
places as "Kindertransports" or emigres to escape persecution. All are
deeply concerned about the welfare of children and the continuing wars
of genocide that threaten their lives.

Progress: AKP has located and is in communication with a number of
American Kindertransports and obtained the names of most of the 1,000
children >from organizational documents of the time. We are in the
process of trying to establish the whereabouts of those named and/or
their relatives. The Third Party Registry at the U.S. Holocaust Museum
and Memorial is assisting in this effort and we are actively working
with other organizations. Most of those Kindertransports contacted have
agreed to participate in filmed interviews for the purpose of
incorporating that material into a full-length documentary with relevant
archival material. Dr. Judith Baumel, who wrote one of the few books on
this subject, "Unfulfilled Promise," has agreed to be a Technical
Advisor on the Project.

Founders: Iris Posner is a Registered Nurse and holds a B.S. in
Education >from Columbia University, Masters Degree in Public
Administration >from Baruch College and Certificate in Film Production
from New York University. Ms. Posner was a social science researcher at
the National Institute of Mental Health and the Social Security
Administration and a Communications Consultant with several large
corporations. Ms. Posner is also a professional photographer.

Lenore Moskowitz holds a B.S. in Economics >from the University of
Maryland, is an Industry Analyst and has thirty-five years experience as
a researcher and interviewer.

How To Help: The American Kindertransport Project welcomes all those
persons interested in supporting its mission to document the experiences
of American Kindertransports and the people and organizations that
rescued them. Those wanting to help in this effort should contact AKP.
We look forward to hearing >from you.

Recent email mentioned the following:

nearly
29 million current communitdies. All you need to know is the country and

the first two letters of the town name including the diacritic marks.
Each
town is accompanied by three maps in zoom formation, town coordinates,
altitude, nearest airports and links to the web. For some reason, the
U.S.
is excluded >from the list of world countries.

Out of curiosity, I went to locate my "home town", and looked under
Israel, and then the first two letter "Je" or Ye, and then tried all the
variations possible.
Seems that there is no city called Jerusalem or Yerushalayim in the
State of Israel...
