Murska Sobota #hungary

Dear Denise Larson,
Your notes in October and yesterday prompted me to share my experiences
with searching for records on my maternal grandmother and her family on
Murska Sobota in Slovenia. The town was also called Muraszombat in
Hungarian, and Olsnitz in German. In the FHL microfilm collections I found
the birth records of my grandmother and her 8 siblings, including the early
20th century "hungarisation" annotations of all the males (Neuman changed
to Timar), as well as birth, marriage and death data on THEIR parents and
grandparents. Among other things, I thus discovered that my gggf Simon
Neuman was born in Murska Sobota around 1814, married Netl Rabenstein in
1839, and died there at age 70. >from so much distance in time and space,
that was an almost unreal, very moving experience.
In case it's useful to you or someone else, the microfilm numbers in the
FHL collection for Murska Sobota are:
Jewish records: #642935
Civil records 1868-1918: #1793123
#1793249-1793253,1793262
#1793426-1793427
#1794025-1794026
#1794275-1794277
Send me direct e-mail if anyone needs to know what data are contained on
the individual films.

Minnie Sacks, New York, 1905 #general

Carol Rombro Rider
 

from a distant relative, I have inhiereted a large box of turn-of the century
pictures. One photo is of a young woman, I would guess to be about 16 to 20
years of age, and her name is Minnie Sacks. (Spelling of the surname is a
little difficult to see.)
I believe the picture was taken about 1905 in New York City.

If anyone believes Minnie Sacks is a relative, I would be happy to send them a
copy of the picture. By the way, this relative had the remarkable forsight to
put the names of the people in the photo on the back. Fellow genealogists,
are you listening????????????????

Re: Alma Mater Research #general

What you could do is look up class books which often have background
information about the students - particularly for freshman and senior
years. Also some college classes produce books for reunions which
tell what everyone is doing and their current addresses and families.

Do not put much stock in that form of research. My alma mater will not
release names and addresses unless it first takes the name and
information of the person or organization wishing the contact. It then
contacts the graduate and lets him or her decide whether to make the
contact.

Perhaps the letter n in "Suni" is really a letter r. That would make
it "Suri", a derivative of "Sarah".
