Hungarian-Jewish Archives #hungary

MTB <71431.1612@...>
 

Everything that Tom quoted about the Hungarian-Jewish Archives is true, I
think, at least in the abstract. I agree to call first. >from what I
understand, everything they have is in boxes, so far uncategorized. It
would be interesting to know if it is at least categorized by counties. I
understand that even scholars are not permitted to root through the boxes

from my talk with Dr. Gyorgy Haraszti last summer, the former head of
these archives, there is nothing of genealogical interest in them, at least
for the Burgenland Jewry.

Maureen Tighe-Brown

mod- Is it fear, greed or apathy that keeps these important and valuable documents interred within the bureacratic stranglehold of the self appointed oligarchs who call themselves caretakers of Hungarian Jewry?

ALEX M P MILLER <alexm6@...>
 

Hello Maureen/all

I have currently a list of 2,000 Jewish soldiers in 1848. I wonder if
this is the same.

Please let me know if you are purchasing it or know where to purchase it.
I was planning on scanning the names and then post them as e-MAIL

Best regards, Szervusz

Potential resource #hungary

ALEX M P MILLER <alexm6@...>
 

Hello Scholars,

In the following refernce it is stated:

""In the year 1850, there were 24,192 jews living in the county
of Zemplen ""

Assuming the source is reliable, it had to be based on some actual
census, perhaps
a useful source for Hsig. Can someone follow up?

maps.

Re: Counties from 1848 census #hungary

Sheryl Kastriner asked:

Which counties would have come next closest to Gyor, especially headi=
ng West, in the direction of Vienna

Moson and Sopron border Gyor on the west. Note that 1848 Census records
for Gyor are on two different films. Records for the city are on 0719823
while records for Gyor County are on 0719824.

Gyor Martyrs List #hungary

Robert & Sarah Klein <hamoreh@...>
 

I found this website which should interest those researching Gyor:

http://www2.cybernex.net/~search/gyorlistad.html


I tried erasing various parts of the address, adding "index", etc, but could
not find a home page associated with the list. Perhaps someone should
contact the owner of the cybernex.net page (which does load) to find out who
posted the Gyor list and if there are any related pages.

In order to see the whole list, change the "ad" near the end of the address
to the following:

eg, hk, lr, and finally sz. These are of course the range of initial
letters of the family names covered on each page.

Re: Names from 1848 Census #hungary

Farkas is an Hungarian equivalent of Wilhelm/Wilmos/Zev. And Kadi is in
all probability Kati/Katalin. I have all of those names in my family
tree.

I think you've found what you are looking for!
