Just to let everyone know that I have re-established contact with a second
cousin of my mother's as a result of a note someone posted to either the
Hungary or Belarus mailing list (I cannot remember which). It mentioned a
searchable database of donors to the Wall of Honour at Ellis Island. Well
I searched and it found and I now have another family member interested in
genealogy to help with the tree (and they are hard to come by in my
family).

Al Cohen asks about access to LDS films in Israel

To the best of my knowledge, there is no facility there. That's
why those of us who have access try to help our Israeli
"cousins" as much as possible and often do exchange research.

Hello Roth people

I stayed away >from this networking knowing that Roth is one of the most
common names in Hungary.

But if you are interested the village of Tisza Bercel in Szabolcs county
had a majority of Roth's, including my branch

Hooray to Wayne for ingenuity and persistence

Re: h-sig digest: October 18, 1998 #hungary

I found them on the Hamburg ship index. When I found the ship manifest entering New York Harbor, I got excited. But again, it only said they were >from Hungary.
Did you use the LDS films for the Hamburg ship index for the above?

Then I had the thought. Perhaps the ship manifest on boarding in Hamburg was a little more detailed than the one entering New York Harbor. It was true. The ship manifests leaving Hamburg, at least those in the 1880's, had a column for last residence besides the country of origin.
But where did you find the ship manifests leaving Hamburg?

Perhaps others have had the same difficulty.

I have had many similar experiences. And, I have only found one great
uncle on the Hamburg index list. As you can see below I am searching
all roots >from Slovakia.

Thanks for answering the above questions and for the tip.

Re: KANICHI, in Kostjakovici district #belarus

David Goldman <davic@...>
 

Hi Belarus SIGgers:

I have been interested in any information on the history of the Jewish
community of an obscure town called Kanichi. It is currently on the border
with Russia, and was the hometown of my great-grandmother, Leah Kabakov. I
have found virtually nothing about it or her antecedents, except that her
parents were Avraham Zvi and Pessya Kabakov. They married her off to my
great-grandfather, Yale Shapiro, of a Lubavitcher in the nearby town called
SURAZH (the RUSSIAN one, not the one near Vitebsk). I presume, of course,
that the families knew each other, and that the Kabakovs would have also
been Lubavitchers. It is entirely possible that the two families were related.

In any event, does anyone know anything about the history of Kanichi and
its Jews? Evidently today it is a small town, with no Jewish cemetery
surviving. Even records on her family (such as tax and census ones) have
not even been found in Minsk.

Unfortunately this is a problem with Mapquest, which doesn't happens with
Microsoft's Expedia (instead of a star it places the location's name). What
you can do is to print the page, then the star shows. Of course you get all
the trash around the map.

Here's info regarding some web resources for those doing research in
presentday Slovakia or looking for formerly Hungarian places in Slovakia,
Ukraine, and Romania.

Root Seekers guide to the Homeland
http://carpato-rusyn.org/villages.htm#INDEX is a list of Carpatho-Rusyn
villages based on the 1910 Hungarian census. The list includes names of
villages, pre-WWI counties (megye) or Galician districts (bezirk), and
present day administrative subdivisions and countries.As far as I can
tell, the list, which was prepared by Paul Magocsi and the Multicultural
history Society of Ontario, only goes through K at present.

Also available on-line is a list of FHL numbers for Slovak Jewish
communities. You can find this info, which may omit some recent
acquisitions, at http://www.feefhs.org/mf/sk/sk-jewl.html (I
think that's
an "l" after jew, not a "1" but I may have written this down incorrectly.
Try inserting "1" if this URL doesn't work.

Another source of info is Jordan Auslander's list of archives holding
Slovak Jewish community records. You can purchase the microfiche from
Avotaynu for about $10.

Dennis,
Did you actually get a passenger list >from Rotterdam? If so, what is the
address for the source of these lists? What information did you give them?
What information appears on the list?

Roberta Solit


I just spoke to a clerk at the Rotterdam Archives recently and he told me
that Hungarians or anyone for that matter needed either traveling papers or
a passport to go through Rotterdam on their way to New York. I got a
pasenger list >from the Netherlands that factually coincides with the one for
my great aunt Helen that I got >from NARA. These make up 2 different types of
passenger lists.

So I ask the question again, where do applications for passports or travel
papers reside and did copies of the travel papers or passports get made and
where do they reside for those people leaving Hungary in 1904 and 1907 in
general and Munkacs in particular?

I now have good reason to ask this question since the clerk told me that the
Dutch required papers or a passport.

Thank you.

Dennis Baer
