History Centers that can be posted to this SIG. I think it
would help if some of us knew where to go.

Not possible Dan....there are over 2600 FHCs world wide. Here's
how to locate the center closest to you in the U.S. if you only
have e-mail and no web access:

1. in the classified section of your local phone book look
under Churches...Church of Jesus Christ of Latter Day Saints

2..try the white pages under Family History Center

3. 1-800-346-6044 8 a.m.-4 p.m. Mountain Time

If you are outside the U.S. and find nothing listed in your
phone book, post to this SIG, or to JewishGen Discussion Group
for somebody in the U.S. to make the call and locate the closest
FHC to where you live.

Dokszyce Cemetery #belarus

Harold Pollins <pollins@...>
 

I understand a distant relation of mine was buried last week in Dokszyce
(sc. Dokshitsy) Cemetery, Queen's, New York City. I have looked at the
Cemetery Database but cannot find it there. Does it have a different name?

a local librarian, Istvan Nezo. It is entitled: A kisvardai zsidosag tortenet. (History

printed. It is already out of print.

The book is in Hungarian. It contains the following chapters:

I. Immigration of Jews to the Carpathian basin
II. History of the Kisvarda Jews.
III. Religious life in Kisvarda.
IV. Religious buildings, institutions and places.
V. Kisvarda Jews in historical events, their social role, assimilation, integration,
and anti-semitism.
VI. Jewish organizations in Kisvarda.
VII. Education.
VIII. Role of Kisvarda Jewry in the economy.
IX. Kisvarda Jewry between 1938 and 1944.
X. Kisvarda Jewry after 1945.

It has many illustrations. It is a nice book.

I dont' have any interest in the book, this is merely a review for your ineterest!

Best regards,

Vilmos/Wolf #hungary

Peter S. Spiro <peter.spiro@...>
 

Dear Debbi: You recently wrote to someone:

"Farkas is an Hungarian equivalent of Wilhelm/Wilmos/Zev." I'm curious
to know what your source is for this statement. My
great-great-grandmother's father is named as Vilmos on her death
certificate. In the 1848 census, the person who I assume must have
been her father is named Wolf, so it fits what you say. However,
Wilhelm/Vilmos does not mean the same thing as Wolf. Farkas would have
been the direct translation. The possible explanation is that my
ggggrandfather didn't like to be named after a carnivorous animal, and
chose a Hungarian name that had the same first sound as his
Yiddish/German name. Any thoughts on this?

mod.-The translation of the Hungarian word Farkas into English is Wolf which translates into Hebrew as Zev and into Yiddish and German as Wulf.
Hence, one many times finds the name Zev Wolf as a first name among Jews. Even though Farkas is usually found as a common family name among Hungarian Jews, I have encountered the use of Farkas as a given name as well.

Sarah is resting comfortably now at Siroka Hospital in Be'er Sheva with the

Folks,
During the absence of our moderator, therefore his inability
to "clean up" your improperly posted responses, we've all been
treated to unnecessarily copied previous messages! Please take
note:

You cannot hit the reply button in your response to a message,
since what it does is copy the entire thing! This is an absolute
waste of bandwidth. All you need do is either copy and paste
the subject line of the message to which you are responding,
type re: in front of it and you're not only done, you've saved
the rest of us the time and effort to scroll through needless
duplication. Since we all use different programs and systems,
learn how to copy and paste according to the directions of your
own program.

In answer to Touvia Goldstein's questions about embarkation
lists/passenger manifest someone advised him that the Mormon
Church has filmed all this. They have indeed, but this is
totally misleading advice since there is *no access to this
information at all in the State of Israel* So, the
well-intentioned advice about how to contact the Family History
Center in Salt Lake City is not going to help him a bit.

What Touvia needs is someone to say, "I'll do this for you at a
Family History Center I can reach if you will do thus and so
for me in Israel.

And to Touvia, there are thousands of microfilms on which the
passenger manifests appear, so to hope that someone has the one
you need is even greater than hoping to find a needle in an
entire hayfield. The basis of all that JewishGen is and does is
the concept of sharing. Surely there is some research that you
can do in Israel in exchange for research where people have
access to LDS films.

CARO-DELVAILLE #general

micheline Gutmann <MichelineGUTMANN@...>
 

The painter Henry CARO-DELVAILLE was born in 1876 in Bayonne :

Generally the Mairies don't give any information for records older
than 100 years old. If by chance they send you the birth record, there
will be perhaps a mention of marriage but not of death.

These mentions began to be written end of 19th century for marriages,
1944 for deaths.

But surely you may ask and look for the birth record in an LDS library.
As for the death record : I have seen in the "Bottin Mondain" of 1919 :
CARO-DELVAILLE was living in the 16 th arrondissement. He probably died
there. So, you may ask for the death record to :

Service de l'Etat Civil, Mairie du 16 eme arrondissement
71 avenue Henri Martin , 75116 Paris

When you don't know the arrondissement , it is possible to find a
record but it is much more difficult.
Look at Infofiles for French resources
FR-1@jewishgen.org

As for his eventual children, when I go to the Mairie,
I shall have a look.

Images of ancestral places #hungary

Ujlaki Gyorgy <ujlaki.gyorgy@...>
 

A friend of mine helped me to scan in images >from old postcards, depicting
Hungarian cities and villages >from before the war. I am collecting postcards that
depict main streets and squares, with shops, most probably owned by Jews.

The images are in JPEG format, so you can view them with your browser (IE or
NN), or using a photo editor.

I have the following:

Moson (now Mosonmagyarovar) main street in 1943.
Szilasbalhas (now Mezoszilas in Fejer county) main street n.d.
Nagykoros main square: c.1930-1940.
Beregszasz, Verboczy square c.1930-1940.
Maramarossziget, court house with a street with shops, in 1913.
Maramarossziget, Horthy square with shops, in c 1940.
Kolozsvar, Deak Ferenc street in 1943.
Szilagysomlyo street in 1909.
View of Szilagysomlyo n.d.
Kecskemet Rakoczi street in 1926.
Nyiregyhaza main square, Szechenyi street and Korona Hotel in 1943.
Tapolca main square in 1941.
Debrecen main street in 1935.

If you would like to receive any of them, write me.
