1825 Pernumernaten list plus #hungary

Louis Schonfeld <lmagyar@...>
 

A few announcements:

1.Marc Polster has put up the following database on our website:

Pernumeranten >from Sefer Schne Apharim by Rabbi Hirsch Brod. Published in
Prag 1825
Subscribers of the religious book discussing the mystical aspects of the
Jewish holidays
Direct access is - http://www.jewishgen.org/Hungary/Data.htm

It is currently the first item on the Data page of the website. Hopefully it is self-explanatory. Questions or comments about this list should be directed to me at Lmagyar@en.com

2. There are four volunteers transcribing the Munkacs burial list from
Hebrew into English. We need one more volunteer who is familiar with Hebrew
to do about five pages >from the list. It takes about 30 minutes to do a
page. I can send photocopies of the pages and a sample entry on an excel
spreadsheet with column headings. If someone comes forward soon we can have
that project completed in several weeks.

3. In the meantime our 1848 census project is moving forward. Would the
current volunteers of that project please report your progress to Marc
Polster and myself.

4. I would request that one of our Israeli subscribers find out more about
the Yad Vashem's proposed "Lists of Lists" and what role can the h-sig play
in contributing the names of the Hungarian victims of the Holocaust.

If you haven't visited our website recently I urge you to do so. Marc has
done an excellent job, and I for one am very proud of it as I hope you are
as well.

Budapest Cemetery #hungary

Patricia J. Weisshaus <patjw28@...>
 

I heard some very alarming news yesterday >from my sister-in-law who lives
in Budapest. She said some of the cemeteries are being disturbed in order
to make room for the newly dead. She said her mother's gravesite was gone.

Can anyone confirm or deny that this is true?

Re: Budapest Cemeteries #hungary

Patricia J. Weisshaus <patjw28@...>
 

I wrote a message yesterday about the Budapest Cemeteries being destroyed
in order to make room for new burials, according to my sister-in-law.

Today my husband talked to his brother (her husband) and he said, yes, this
was happening to the state cemeteries but not the Jewish ones.

I hope I didn't upset anyone by my original message.

SPIEGEL from Brody #galicia

Len Pincus <lennyp@...>
 

My GM Rifka Leah SPIEGEL was born in Brody in 1867 and Came to the US in
about 1890. Where might I find any records for the family she left behind
in Brody? Her father's name was Louis and her mother was Pauline. I assume
they were both dead by 1896 since her first two children were named after
her parents.
Any help or connections will be appreciated.

"And I Still See Their Faces" page index #galicia

Jane Lachs <Jane@...>
 

For your information.
Please excuse the duplication if you've seen this on
Jewishgen.

I visited the photo exhibition "And I Still See Their Faces"
and also bought the book.
Jewish faces in Poland before the war.
It's a beautiful album with hundreds of photos that are
quite moving when you read the accompaning text.

If you want to know whether a photo of someone
you are researching is in the book I have scanned
the index and put it on my homepage.
But even if you don't find an ancestor it's worth
buying the book to get an idea how they lived in
Poland before the second world War.

Re: Has anyone ever heard of this town?? #general

JJG613 <jjg613@...>
 

he always said he came from
a village called "Ochiefsko Oliesko" (this is a phonetic spelling, he never
wrote it down).
The Polish town of OLECKO is a possible suspect. It is located at coordinates
5402 2231, which is 138.2 miles NNE of Warsaw.

Good luck.
