Hello,

GUTTMANN (my great-uncle) and Linka LIPNER. Although my paternal great-gra=
ndfather (Samuel GUTTMANN) was >from Inacovce near Michalovce, I had been to=
ld that brother Pal lived near Kosice, and that three of his six children s=
urvived the Holocaust (including the two daughters mentioned above).

My question is where to go >from here? Can I order original copies of the a=
bove mentioned birth records? Is it possible to request further informatio=
n on this family >from archives in Kosice? Is there a way to find contact i=
nformation for survivors of the holocaust? Should I hire a professional re=
searcher?

Cemetery in Tolcsva, Hungary #hungary

Larry Briggs
 

I am looking for information about Jewish cemeteries in Tolcsva,
Hungary. So far, I have found mention of only one in the town. It is
reported to have been vandalized over the years, in addition to being
overgrown >from time to time. I have found on Jewishgen 3 overview
photos of the cemetery and listings and photos of 7 graves. I have
been advised via Jewishgen discussion board that oroklet.hu has a
listing of 72 burials at this cemetery. Unfortunately, the English
verison of that site will not open (Server not found).

Larry Briggs



I am looking for any listing of those buried there. I believe my G
Grandfather, Moritz (Maurice) Gottfried, might be buried there.

Possibly other family members. (Moritz lived, and taught in a local
school, in Tolcsva and died there in 1886.) Our family emigrated in
1891.



from the Internaitonal Jewish Cemetery Project site, I found "Lowry
Lajos and Peter Wirth completed survey on 9/12/91 using Wirth: itt van
elrejtve." Is anyone familiar with that work? Does it include cemetery
photos?



I will be visiting the Tolcsva / Sarospatak area in June and want to
prepare in advance.



Does anyone have information on

- Is there any listing of those buried in Tolcsva

- Does the survey referenced above include listings or photos of the graves?

- A current caretaker or knowledgable person in the area who might be
able to help, with contact information if available. One responder on
Jewishgen said he needed a key when he visited that cemetery a few
years ago.

- Local resource in the Sarospatak area we could contact for
assistance on 19th century life and history?

- Anyone have a listing, or a link to one, of the English listing of
the 72 burials on oroklet.hu ?



Thank you.

1869 Census Database #hungary

Vivian Kahn
 

All,

I have had a number of inquiries about finding family records >from the =
1869 Census in the FamilySearch images that are linked to this =
collection.

The link to the images is relatively new and there is, to my knowledge, =
no shortcut to finding the family listed in the JewishGen 1869 Hungarian =
Census database described at =
http://www.jewishgen.org/databases/Hungary/Census1869.htm . There are =
some tips, however, that might make the search somewhat easier.

The 1869 Census was a general census of the population of the Kingdom of =
Hungary unlike the 1848 and others that appear in our records, which =
only enumerated Jews. In most of the counties, Jewish records are =
interspersed with non-Jews but this is not the case for Saros. A =
shortcut to the Saros Jewish records is to go to the list of =
municipalities in Saros megye at =
https://familysearch.org/ark:/61903/3:1:3QSQ-G99V-V3R3?owc=3DQZ77-B8P%3A32=
3642201%3Fcc%3D1986782&wc=3DQZ77-BVC%3A323642201%2C323978501&cc=3D1986782 =
and look for the records identified as (Zsido). =20

To make this more confusing, what we identify as family =
numbers seem to bear no relationship that I can find to any =
number in the original records. I would be grateful to anyone who worked =
on indexing these records who can explain where the numbers originated.

When searching linked images, it is possible to reduce the time spent
browsing by finding the Item # and determining about where the records for
the relevant appear. The most recent query concerned a family >from Zboro, Saros.
There are 489 images for Item #2 with a list of places in the beginning on image 95 at at the =
end on image 584. If you go directly to Item #2 using link in the Saros =
records, the list is on Image 2. The list shows that records >from =
Zboro mezo varos, the town name, appear in the last third of the =
records starting at image 397 (304 using direct method).

The records for each house covered at least 4 pages in the original =
census record or 3 images. The cover sheet lists the House Number and =
describes the building including number and type of rooms and whether =
the building included a shop, stable, etc. The names, birth places, =
occupations, etc. appear on the second page of each house record. The =
last page, which is on the left side of the image with the cover sheet =
for the next house, includes interesting info about livestock and =
agricultural resources owned by the family. I was intrigued to learn =
that my great-grandfather had a store in the building where the family =
lived and quite a few farm animals, crops, etc.

Please contact me off list with comments and I'll post those of general interest.

Yizkor Book Project, February 2017 #hungary

Lance Ackerfeld <lance.ackerfeld@...>
 

Shalom,

If asked to describe the Yizkor Book Project in one word, I would describe
it as the "one-that-never-stands-still-for-a moment" project. Not one word,
you say? You're right, but there isn't really one word to describe our
project as it is multi-faceted and is kept running by a multitude of
dedicated people, >from all corners of the globe, around the clock. I would
now like to relate what these same people have helped us accomplish during
the last month.

For a start, in February two books were added online. The first, which is
completely online is called "Holocaust in Rovno: The Massacre at Sosenki
Forest, November 1941" and was donated by Jeffrey Burds. Clearly this is an
important addition to those of you wishing to learn more about the events
that took place in Rovno (Rivne) during the Holocaust and thank Jeffrey for
this generous and significant donation.

The second book, >from which we have been kindly donated several sections,
comes >from Rasia Moroz of the Jewish Family and Children's Services of
Southern Arizona. The book is called "To Tell Our Stories: Holocaust
Survivors of Southern Arizona" and is particularly interesting as it
includes stories by Holocaust survivors >from the former-Soviet Union, and
their arduous journey east >from Ukraine, Belarus, and Russia, and the
subsequent harshness of life in Uzbekistan, Kazakhstan, and Siberia.

In recent times, I have been approached by people interested in seeing the
"A Memorial to the Jewish community of Dubno, Wolyn" book translated into
English. I suggested, as I usually do, that the best way to see this happen
was by setting up a specific Dubno Translation Fund to support the
professional translation of the book. With their agreement this has, in
fact, now been carried out and we now turn to those of you who are Dubno
researchers, to assist us in the lofty goal of making the unique treasures
this book contains available to a wide as possible public. If you are able
to assist financially to any extent, to this particular fund or any of the
other 85 odd project funds we have running, please see the JewishGen-erosity
link at the end of this report. Clearly, every donation is meaningful.

The Yizkor Book in Print Project is another facet of the YB Project that is
always on the move. This last month the "A City and the Dead; Zablotow Alive
and Destroyed - Memorial Book of Zabolotov" became available for purchase -
details may be found via the YBIP link at the end of this report.
By-the-way, Joel Alpert, the YBIP Project Manager, recently informed me that
just in 2016, 1259 books published by this project were sold. For me this is
clear indication of the importance of this particular project and the
"thirst for knowledge" that exists for people looking to learn more about
the communities and people destroyed in the Holocaust.

Other than that, in keeping with our being a never-standing still project,
this past month we received an encouraging number of additions to be added
to our existing projects. These additions come >from our Translation Fund
projects, >from a number of tireless volunteer translators and also from
other good people who have had sections of Yizkor book translated and have
thoughtfully and generously, passed the translations on to us to be added in
online. That's how we keep moving.

Yizkor Book Project, February 2017 #rabbinic

Lance Ackerfeld <lance.ackerfeld@...>
 

Shalom,

If asked to describe the Yizkor Book Project in one word, I would describe
it as the "one-that-never-stands-still-for-a moment" project. Not one word,
you say? You're right, but there isn't really one word to describe our
project as it is multi-faceted and is kept running by a multitude of
dedicated people, >from all corners of the globe, around the clock. I would
now like to relate what these same people have helped us accomplish during
the last month.

For a start, in February two books were added online. The first, which is
completely online is called "Holocaust in Rovno: The Massacre at Sosenki
Forest, November 1941" and was donated by Jeffrey Burds. Clearly this is an
important addition to those of you wishing to learn more about the events
that took place in Rovno (Rivne) during the Holocaust and thank Jeffrey for
this generous and significant donation.

The second book, >from which we have been kindly donated several sections,
comes >from Rasia Moroz of the Jewish Family and Children's Services of
Southern Arizona. The book is called "To Tell Our Stories: Holocaust
Survivors of Southern Arizona" and is particularly interesting as it
includes stories by Holocaust survivors >from the former-Soviet Union, and
their arduous journey east >from Ukraine, Belarus, and Russia, and the
subsequent harshness of life in Uzbekistan, Kazakhstan, and Siberia.

In recent times, I have been approached by people interested in seeing the
"A Memorial to the Jewish community of Dubno, Wolyn" book translated into
English. I suggested, as I usually do, that the best way to see this happen
was by setting up a specific Dubno Translation Fund to support the
professional translation of the book. With their agreement this has, in
fact, now been carried out and we now turn to those of you who are Dubno
researchers, to assist us in the lofty goal of making the unique treasures
this book contains available to a wide as possible public. If you are able
to assist financially to any extent, to this particular fund or any of the
other 85 odd project funds we have running, please see the JewishGen-erosity
link at the end of this report. Clearly, every donation is meaningful.

The Yizkor Book in Print Project is another facet of the YB Project that is
always on the move. This last month the "A City and the Dead; Zablotow Alive
and Destroyed - Memorial Book of Zabolotov" became available for purchase -
details may be found via the YBIP link at the end of this report.
By-the-way, Joel Alpert, the YBIP Project Manager, recently informed me that
just in 2016, 1259 books published by this project were sold. For me this is
clear indication of the importance of this particular project and the
"thirst for knowledge" that exists for people looking to learn more about
the communities and people destroyed in the Holocaust.

Other than that, in keeping with our being a never-standing still project,
this past month we received an encouraging number of additions to be added
to our existing projects. These additions come >from our Translation Fund
projects, >from a number of tireless volunteer translators and also from
other good people who have had sections of Yizkor book translated and have
thoughtfully and generously, passed the translations on to us to be added in
online. That's how we keep moving.

And now for details of all the updates and additions that were carried out
in the Yizkor Book Project over February.

Shalom,

If asked to describe the Yizkor Book Project in one word, I would describe
it as the "one-that-never-stands-still-for-a moment" project. Not one word,
you say? You're right, but there isn't really one word to describe our
project as it is multi-faceted and is kept running by a multitude of
dedicated people, >from all corners of the globe, around the clock. I would
now like to relate what these same people have helped us accomplish during
the last month.

For a start, in February two books were added online. The first, which is
completely online is called "Holocaust in Rovno: The Massacre at Sosenki
Forest, November 1941" and was donated by Jeffrey Burds. Clearly this is an
important addition to those of you wishing to learn more about the events
that took place in Rovno (Rivne) during the Holocaust and thank Jeffrey for
this generous and significant donation.

The second book, >from which we have been kindly donated several sections,
comes >from Rasia Moroz of the Jewish Family and Children's Services of
Southern Arizona. The book is called "To Tell Our Stories: Holocaust
Survivors of Southern Arizona" and is particularly interesting as it
includes stories by Holocaust survivors >from the former-Soviet Union, and
their arduous journey east >from Ukraine, Belarus, and Russia, and the
subsequent harshness of life in Uzbekistan, Kazakhstan, and Siberia.

In recent times, I have been approached by people interested in seeing the
"A Memorial to the Jewish community of Dubno, Wolyn" book translated into
English. I suggested, as I usually do, that the best way to see this happen
was by setting up a specific Dubno Translation Fund to support the
professional translation of the book. With their agreement this has, in
fact, now been carried out and we now turn to those of you who are Dubno
researchers, to assist us in the lofty goal of making the unique treasures
this book contains available to a wide as possible public. If you are able
to assist financially to any extent, to this particular fund or any of the
other 85 odd project funds we have running, please see the JewishGen-erosity
link at the end of this report. Clearly, every donation is meaningful.

The Yizkor Book in Print Project is another facet of the YB Project that is
always on the move. This last month the "A City and the Dead; Zablotow Alive
and Destroyed - Memorial Book of Zabolotov" became available for purchase -
details may be found via the YBIP link at the end of this report.
By-the-way, Joel Alpert, the YBIP Project Manager, recently informed me that
just in 2016, 1259 books published by this project were sold. For me this is
clear indication of the importance of this particular project and the
"thirst for knowledge" that exists for people looking to learn more about
the communities and people destroyed in the Holocaust.

Other than that, in keeping with our being a never-standing still project,
this past month we received an encouraging number of additions to be added
to our existing projects. These additions come >from our Translation Fund
projects, >from a number of tireless volunteer translators and also from
other good people who have had sections of Yizkor book translated and have
thoughtfully and generously, passed the translations on to us to be added in
online. That's how we keep moving.

Lithuania SIG #Lithuania Yizkor Book Project, February 2017 #lithuania

Lance Ackerfeld <lance.ackerfeld@...>
 

Shalom,

If asked to describe the Yizkor Book Project in one word, I would describe
it as the "one-that-never-stands-still-for-a moment" project. Not one word,
you say? You're right, but there isn't really one word to describe our
project as it is multi-faceted and is kept running by a multitude of
dedicated people, >from all corners of the globe, around the clock. I would
now like to relate what these same people have helped us accomplish during
the last month.

For a start, in February two books were added online. The first, which is
completely online is called "Holocaust in Rovno: The Massacre at Sosenki
Forest, November 1941" and was donated by Jeffrey Burds. Clearly this is an
important addition to those of you wishing to learn more about the events
that took place in Rovno (Rivne) during the Holocaust and thank Jeffrey for
this generous and significant donation.

The second book, >from which we have been kindly donated several sections,
comes >from Rasia Moroz of the Jewish Family and Children's Services of
Southern Arizona. The book is called "To Tell Our Stories: Holocaust
Survivors of Southern Arizona" and is particularly interesting as it
includes stories by Holocaust survivors >from the former-Soviet Union, and
their arduous journey east >from Ukraine, Belarus, and Russia, and the
subsequent harshness of life in Uzbekistan, Kazakhstan, and Siberia.

In recent times, I have been approached by people interested in seeing the
"A Memorial to the Jewish community of Dubno, Wolyn" book translated into
English. I suggested, as I usually do, that the best way to see this happen
was by setting up a specific Dubno Translation Fund to support the
professional translation of the book. With their agreement this has, in
fact, now been carried out and we now turn to those of you who are Dubno
researchers, to assist us in the lofty goal of making the unique treasures
this book contains available to a wide as possible public. If you are able
to assist financially to any extent, to this particular fund or any of the
other 85 odd project funds we have running, please see the JewishGen-erosity
link at the end of this report. Clearly, every donation is meaningful.

The Yizkor Book in Print Project is another facet of the YB Project that is
always on the move. This last month the "A City and the Dead; Zablotow Alive
and Destroyed - Memorial Book of Zabolotov" became available for purchase -
details may be found via the YBIP link at the end of this report.
By-the-way, Joel Alpert, the YBIP Project Manager, recently informed me that
just in 2016, 1259 books published by this project were sold. For me this is
clear indication of the importance of this particular project and the
"thirst for knowledge" that exists for people looking to learn more about
the communities and people destroyed in the Holocaust.

Other than that, in keeping with our being a never-standing still project,
this past month we received an encouraging number of additions to be added
to our existing projects. These additions come >from our Translation Fund
projects, >from a number of tireless volunteer translators and also from
other good people who have had sections of Yizkor book translated and have
thoughtfully and generously, passed the translations on to us to be added in
online. That's how we keep moving.

And now for details of all the updates and additions that were carried out
in the Yizkor Book Project over February.
