Burial or death cert from Haifa - British Mandate #general

Barbara Murrant
 

I hope to obtain the death or burial certificate for my g grandfather, who
died in the Haifa area, Israel around 1938-1940. I have e-mailed the
Population Registry Office of the Ministy of the Interior, as suggested in
the archive, and the reply was that I should direct questions to my local
Israeli Embassy.

I would be very grateful for an address in Israel. Would a certificate
give info on parentage and birth place?

Surname: LISKER #general

Hardor1@...
 

I have in my possession, a LISKER family tree >from Germany that dates
back to 1840.
Perhaps one of our Jewishgenners can assist me. It was supplied to me
by a LISKER family who profess to be non-Jews. I have no problem with
that and neither do they. Our research is to determine the origin of our
name and they are very cooperative. My main question for this forum is:
The name Gottlieb is associated with this and another LISKER family's tree
from Germany and it's a good possibility that they are related without
knowing it. Could Gottlieb be first or last name of the persons
grandfather?
There is a Christian Gottlieb LISKER, born in 1812...and what appears to
be brother#1, Johann Friedrich Gottlieb Kirsche born in 1808. #2 brother
appears to be named Johann Friedrich Rosenhahn with no mention of the name
LISKER.
Another is Johann Gottlieb Ludwig, again with no mention of the name
LISKER. I need to know why there are so many names to a Male. Does it have
anything to do with different fathers? Do German Males carry all their
father's names if there are more than one? If I can solve this mystery,
perhaps I can make more progress searching for missing Mishpoche decendants
of 1500 era Gaon Meyer LISKER of Kracow.

Any and all help greatly appreciated.

Greetings,

I too am interested in the Hungarian National Circus. My gf Morgenstern was a unicyclist for the circus sometime between 1900 and 1920.

Let's Meet 7:00 pm Sunday 2/21/99 At the JCC or the DIA IN Detroit #hungary

Leatrager@...
 

Why didn't I think of this sooner??? On Sunday night at 7:00p.m. there is
going to be the last showing of the Documentary Film The Last Days. It is the
narrative of Holocaust Survivors through the Steven Spielberg Foundation, and
it refers to the deportation and murder of the Jews of Hungary and those
regions Hungary had occupied during W.W.II. Sidney Bolkosky did a review of
the movie in the Jewish News on pps.82-84, and it is also up for the Best
Documentary of 1999.
I will be leaving the JCC at 5:35pm on Sunday and would be delighted to drive
to the DIA and maybe hook up with those of you South OF Detroit. How about a
discussion afterwards at a coffee shop?
Just e-mail me and I will contact you tomorrow night.

Meir Sas book #hungary

Magda Lapedus <Magdil@...>
 

Dear Friends,
Regarding the book of "Vanished communities in Hungary" I received a copy
yesterday >from the UC Berkley. It is a highly interesting book, involves
the Zemplen County communities with Jewish population before the war and
during the Holocaust period. Important reading to those with ancestry from
Zemplen County like myself.

Hungary SIG #Hungary Meir Sas book #hungary

Magda Lapedus <Magdil@...>
 

Dear Friends,
Regarding the book of "Vanished communities in Hungary" I received a copy
yesterday >from the UC Berkley. It is a highly interesting book, involves
the Zemplen County communities with Jewish population before the war and
during the Holocaust period. Important reading to those with ancestry from
Zemplen County like myself.

Survivor Lists-online #hungary

Gabriela P. Svatos <gsvatos@...>
 

On the JewishGen Yizkor Translations page, there is a section headed
"Terezin". If you click on that, there are actually several lists for
Czechoslovak female survivors of both Terezin and Bergen-Belsen. Most of
the people appear to be born in Slovakia-also a great many in Munkacs.
Several surnames >from this group appear:

Spiro(va)
Zipser(ova)
Schonfeld(ova)
Marmorstein(ova)
Stark(ova)... etc.

LOEWY #hungary

I am still searching for any LOEWY connections. Not knowing the ancestral
home, it is quite difficult, and frustrating. However, earlier today, I spoke
with a distant cousin who says her family came >from Santa Ana in the
Carpathian mountain region. Does this town ring any bells? It doesn't sound
like any town I've ever heard of.

Danbury, Ct


mod.- There was a prominent Loewy family >from Bardejov (Bartfa) Saris County, Slovakia. You can find more information about this family in Abraham Grussgot's Yizkor book on that town. There is also some information about Loewy in the Unheeded Cry written by Fuchs (recently discussed here). Survivors of this family now live in Los Angeles and Israel.LS
