(Czech) Day of Jewish Monuments #austria-czech

Jan Meisels Allen
 

About 100 years ago there were 400 synagogues in what is now the Czech
Republic. Many were destroyed by the Nazis by the end of WWll. Some were
destroyed in the post-war communist era. Today there are over 140 that still
stand.

The Day of Jewish Monuments will be held in the Czech Republic on Sunday 14
August, when 41 selected Jewish heritage sites around the country will be
open to visitors. These include synagogues (10) and other buildings that
form a revitalized Jewish heritage.=A0 The Day of Jewish Monuments is
organized by the Jewish community of Prague in collaboration with others. It
is not linked to the European Day of Jewish Culture marked 4 September
(http://www.jewisheritage.org/web/edjc/2016). To read more about the Czech
10 stars network and the Day of Jewish Monuments see:

Meaning of "Agent" as Occupation in Vienna #austria-czech

janicemsj@...
 

Dear SIG members,

I'm hoping to learn what an occupation means. I have found someone in
Vienna city directories >from 1902 to 1923, always listed simply as
"Agent." Google Translate tells me that means "agent" or "operative",
which isn't very descriptive. Can anyone tell me what kind of work an
"Agent" would do in Vienna in the early 20th century?

Thank you very much in advance for your assistance.

Yizkor Book Project, July 2016 #austria-czech

Lance Ackerfeld <lance.ackerfeld@...>
 

Shalom,

The Yizkor Book Project in July was characterized by a great deal of updates
as you will see below. It is always encouraging to see the projects make
progress - step by step - till the final goal is reached and the complete
Yizkor book is translated. This amazing progress is due to the untiring
determination of the coordinators leading these projects and they certainly
deserve our salute for all that they do.

In the individual Yizkor book projects, the blue links appearing in the
table of contents of each project lead to the articles that have been
translated. I'm quite often asked about why articles that don't have blue
links can't be read and if a paid subscription is required to see the
"hidden" articles. No, there is no charge for reading the articles that have
been translated and, on the contrary, and our basic aim is to allow free,
global access to everyone for the translated Yizkor book material. So if the
article isn't available and you are interested in reading it, the next
logical step would be to assist with financial support in the translation of
the article. For this it is worthwhile looking at and donating to the
specific Translations Fund project if it is listed on the JewishGen-erosity
page (link at the end) or by contacting myself so that I can provide you
with an estimate of the cost of translation and you can decide if it's
something you are able to take on.

For those of you who would like to know more about the Yizkor Book Project
and will be at the upcoming IAJGS Conference in Seattle, I warmly recommend
you taking part in our Yizkor Book Birds of a Feather meeting. This year it
is being led by Max Heffler who is and has been an integral partner in our
Yizkor Book team and has a great deal of knowledge and experience regarding
the project.

For those of you who are going to the conference, I do wish you an excellent
and rewarding time whilst you're there.

And now for all the changes and additions that were carried out in the
Yizkor Book Project over July.

names index for 3 Badatelna registers of Ceska Lipa (Boehmisch Leipa) #austria-czech

tompa@...
 

I have created an alphabetized index of names for three Badatelna
registers of the Czech/Bohemian town of Ceska Lipa (Boehmisch Leipa),
one birth register and two marriage registers. Each of these three
registers already contains a handwritten index, but they have
shortcomings. The birth register index is alphabetized by given name,
making it difficult to search for a particular surname. The marriage
registers index only the male names, so half the names that might be
of interest are missing. If you are looking for ancestral vital
records in Boehmisch Leipa, this index will make your life much
easier.

The index I have created contains more than 2000 names in total.
Details of the registers and a link to the index can be found
(temporarily) at http://homes.cs.washington.edu/~tompa/leipa/ . I am
looking for an appropriate place on JewishGen to host this index file.
If you can help me find such a place, please contact me directly.

Hungarian / Jewish Given names #austria-czech

דוד נ.א.
 

Hello
I am having a serious problem in the study of Hungarian Jews - there
is less problem in Poland and other Eastern European countries.
While I know of (usually) the people about them I'm going to study the
by their Jewish names (Hebrew or Yiddish), shows that registered in
Hungary often people enroll foreign / Hungarian names , it turns out
that Jews holding Hungarian name was often quite different sound than
Jewish name , and this name used in official records.
I asked whether there was systematic practice using names Hungarian?
Were the certain names used replacement / parallel Jewish names?
Or in other words: When I'm looking for a man named Moshe or Meir for
example - is there any way to guess his Hungarian name ?
Please note that I am not talking specifically about the translation
or variation of the name (also, but not only), but the whole attitude
of Hungarian name for a Jew.

I apologize if this topic "chewed" - I did not realize a clear answer

Thank you
David

Austria-Czech SIG #Austria-Czech names index for 3 Badatelna registers of Ceska Lipa (Boehmisch Leipa) #austria-czech

tompa@...
 

I have created an alphabetized index of names for three Badatelna
registers of the Czech/Bohemian town of Ceska Lipa (Boehmisch Leipa),
one birth register and two marriage registers. Each of these three
registers already contains a handwritten index, but they have
shortcomings. The birth register index is alphabetized by given name,
making it difficult to search for a particular surname. The marriage
registers index only the male names, so half the names that might be
of interest are missing. If you are looking for ancestral vital
records in Boehmisch Leipa, this index will make your life much
easier.

The index I have created contains more than 2000 names in total.
Details of the registers and a link to the index can be found
(temporarily) at http://homes.cs.washington.edu/~tompa/leipa/ . I am
looking for an appropriate place on JewishGen to host this index file.
If you can help me find such a place, please contact me directly.

Austria-Czech SIG #Austria-Czech Hungarian / Jewish Given names #austria-czech

דוד נ.א.
 

Hello
I am having a serious problem in the study of Hungarian Jews - there
is less problem in Poland and other Eastern European countries.
While I know of (usually) the people about them I'm going to study the
by their Jewish names (Hebrew or Yiddish), shows that registered in
Hungary often people enroll foreign / Hungarian names , it turns out
that Jews holding Hungarian name was often quite different sound than
Jewish name , and this name used in official records.
I asked whether there was systematic practice using names Hungarian?
Were the certain names used replacement / parallel Jewish names?
Or in other words: When I'm looking for a man named Moshe or Meir for
example - is there any way to guess his Hungarian name ?
Please note that I am not talking specifically about the translation
or variation of the name (also, but not only), but the whole attitude
of Hungarian name for a Jew.

I apologize if this topic "chewed" - I did not realize a clear answer

Thank you
David
