Where is Tusnad/Tasnad? #hungary

david framowitz <MLIRON@...>
 

Dear All

In my possession I have 2 pictures of my grandparents and my father as a baby, together with about 50 people at a lake resort. The first picture shows all these people sitting and standing and behind them is two large umbrellas with the words Tusnad and the year 1931 written on the umbrellas. The second picture shows some of the same people sitting in row boats along a pier and on the first row boat the word Tusnad is written.

Does anyone know where Tusnad is?

1848 freedom fighters book #hungary

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

library entrance foyer on Saturdays. Mult es Jovo is a high-quality
journal of long standing, which I have seen sold in the bookstore at
the Dohanyi Street synagogue and in Bestsellers, an English-language
materials' bookstore, on Oktober 6 Utca 11, (tel. >from the USA 011-361-112-1295). I'm thinking if the journal is sold at both places,perhaps the book is also.

Hungarian Book #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?

I thought that Miksa was the Hungarian pet name for Miklos (Nicholas).
Recently I found a LDS vital record entry in which my paternal grandfather

Ekaterinoslav connection #belarus

shiller@...
 

Dear Jerry et al,

My great uncle Jacob CHERNIN was born and grew up in Dobryanka (along the
Dneipper River, south of Gomel). On his Declaration of Intention he entered
Katrinaslav as his last place of foreign residence. I believe Katrinaslav
is the same place as Ekaterinoslav. Please correct me if I'm mistaken.

I believe Ekaterinoslav was a new area of settlement. If so, it appears
that many settlers became disillusioned with life there. Jacob came to the
United States in 1907.

Re: Belarussian Migrations to Ukraine #belarus

Peter B. Golden <pgolden@...>
 

Given the nature of the Russian economy, many poor Jews were forced to
become in effect migratory workers. My grandfather, a rope-maker who also
worked in saw mill construction and similar things in Belarus' (he lived
in Parichi and Rogachov), in the 1890's was regularly working in
Yekaterinoslav for part of the year (usually the summer months -something
I could never quite understand, but the reasons were economic, not
climate). In Yekaterinoslav he did housepainting. This was not atypical of
many in his circumstances. The way to Yekaterinoslav was well-known.

While this does not exactly answer Jerry's question, I think it does serve as
a reminder to all of us that our relatives did not necessarily stay in one
place, one gubernia, or even one country.

Re: Ekaterinoslav connection? #belarus

David W. Harris <dharris1@...>
 

My grandfather was >from Rechitsa, Minsk gubernia, Belarus. About
1900-1904, as the story goes, his political activities made things too hot
for him at home and he went to Alexandrovsk in the Ekaterinaslav gubernia.
There he worked in a clothing "factory", met the boss' sister, married, and
in March 1906 emigrated to New York.

I don't know if the political climate was any better in Alexandrovsk, or
that it was just far enough away that nobody knew him.
