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

I happened to see in the library today a copy of the Dictionary of National
Biography 1931-1940. There was an entry for Sir Philip Sassoon bart.

In answer to the question about marriage and issue the answer is that he
was unmarried and the baronetcy, which he inherited, became extinct at his
death in 1939.

Re: Zemplen Tavern owners unite! #hungary

Sam H Gunclers <gunclers@...>
 

OK! I believe my grandfather, Gunczler Samuel, had a tavern and vineyard
(among other property) in Vajdacska, in Zemplen (near Ujhely). Now the
really big deal would be if someone remembers having a drink at any of
these places. If they can't remember, maybe that's proof they did...

* Maps on Hungary and Shtetl finder software #hungary

Tom Venetianer <tom.vene@...>
 

For those who are interested in the area called "Great Hungary" (ha, ha)
(Hungary-Slovakia-Transylvannia and a portion of Croacia), I found two new
resources.

If you need to find the names of shtetls in *Hungarian*, as they were
called in 1910, go to:
http://lazarus.elte.hu/hun/maps/1910/vmlista.htm
where you can look and download *excellent* county maps of most Hungarian
counties.

If you prefer a search engine, boy, this one is really great: it's a *FREE*
software called KIUT ("way out" in Hungarian). It seems to have a huge
database of all villages, hamlets, towns in Great Hungary, allowing to
search for their names in Hungarian, Slovak and German forms.

Download it at (click on version 4)
http://proteo.soroscj.ro/kiut/
There only one catch: this software can be configured in 4 languages
(Hungarian, Romanian, German and Ukrainian), NO English! If you wish to
read a brief English outline of how it works and how to install it, go to:
http://www.geocities.com/Heartland/Bluffs/9548/kiut4.html

GREAT resources! Good shtetl hunt :)

Note to the moderator: This corrects information in a post that appeared in
the October 18 Digest before the thread was closed.

My neighbor Judith Romney Wegner apparently has a first edition (long out of
print) of _The Unbroken Chain_ by Neil Rosenstein. The second edition, which
is about twice the size of the first, was published in 1990 by C.I.S.
Publishers. It is available >from the author, who can be reached at
<NEIL185@aol.com> (he posted to the same digest as Judith). I created the
charts for the second edition (but receive no royalties :-(} ).

The ISBN of the second edition is 0-9610578-4-X; the first edition is
0-88400-043-5.
