Matrimonial Registers of the community of Tunis #sephardic

Georges Graner
 

The Cercle de Genealogie Juive (France) announces the publication of
Matrimonial registers (1812-1844 and 1872-1881) of the Jewish Portuguese
community of Tunis, so-called Leghornese or Grana with genealogical notices.

Recent researches by Gilles Boulu and Alain Nedjar, members of our
Society complete the previous publication by Robert Attal and Joseph
Avivi, >from the Ben-Zvi Institute, of three matrimonial registers in
1989 and 2000.

The authors have discovered two supplementary registers containing the
marriage contracts of this Jewish Italo-iberian community, commonly
called Grana. These two registers complete the series which originally
consisted of 10 registers, spreading >from 1754 to 1917. They are volumes
3 (1812-1844) and 6 (1872-1881) which contain 434 and 264 Ketoubot
respectively.

This discovery thus yields an exceptional corpus of Ketoubot written
between 1788 and 1881, without any interruption. The authors not only
present the content of these two registers but they also produce
statistics on this community and reconstitute several genealogies by a
simultaneous use of several sources.

EDELMAN from Tokaj area in Miskolc, and question about immigration to Miskolc #hungary

edelman@...
 

Hi,

I am trying to look again for my EDELMAN third-great uncle and aunts who
were born in Plavec/Palocsa, Olaszliska, Keresztur and Tokaj between
1854 and 1869 and lived in Tokaj in 1869 and their descendants. (I think
that one died in Stara Lubovna/Olublo at age 16 in 1885 but have not any
evidence that anyone else moved back to what is now Slovakia, somewhere
a bit west or northwest of Presov -- my ggg-grandmother FRIEDMAN was
also born in Plavec)

The only other hint is that it's likely that an Abraham-Adolf EDELMAN
was born after 1873 when my ggg-grandfather died - that's also my
g-grandfather's name (b. 1875 in Hrabkov/Hrapko) and i know it's
possible that a first cousin got the same name.

So I've checked what I could via Ancestry, Jewish Gen etc - I have
already looked at some pre-1895 films >from Zemplen - and now am simply
doing the slow troll through Miskolc BMD after 1895 on FamilySearch
(only some records seem to be indexed.) It's pretty amazing how many of
the children born in 1895-96 are Jewish and also how many parents are
not >from Miskolc, and are not just >from surrounding parts of Borsod but
also Saros, Szatmar and counties to the south.

My understanding is that industry developed in a big way in Miskolc
during this time and this needed workers.... but also so did
Kosice/Kassa and I have not seen many emigrating >from there.

So in addition to any hints or tips about finding my EDELMANs or their
descendants I would be happy to hear more about Miskolc during this
period....

Here is my ggg-grandfather on Geni: https://tinyurl.com/nvvjdwk - the
people I am looking for are all his children except the eldest, Armin.

Bocki / Bielsk ancestors #poland

My grandmother, Fannie Fox (Fiegle Fuchs in Hebrew) and her siblings
migrated either >from Bocki or Bielsk in Poland in around 1900. In the
list of names for the Bialystok region in the 1897 census, the name Fuks

is very close to the Fuks spelling. I wonder how I would go about trying

are >from Bielsk or Bocki, so I can see if I can trace the ancestors to
these towns based on the 1897 census. Any help or suggestions would be
appreciated. Thank you.

Maramaros Jewish Records Indexing Project #romania

Sandy Malek
 

The Maramaros Jewish Records Indexing Project (Maramaros Project) has been
obtaining vital records >from the Baia Mare branch of the Romanian Nation
Archives, and indexing them.

You are likely aware that an initial set of records was completed and
uploaded to JewishGen about one year ago. This first set of records
from Maramaros included approximately 56,000 records, and mainly covered
the years up to 1895. We provided early access to those indexes for
anyone who had completed indexing 500 or more records, or made a donation
of a minimum of $100 to the project through JewishGen.

Our Romanian contact found more records. These are generally newer
records, >from 1895 through 1913, depending on the particular register
book. We are currently working on indexing as much of the information
as we can. Currently, we have 7800 records available for viewing, with
about 700 in the pipeline awaiting proofreading. In addition, our viewing
system is much easier to use!

In these newer records,you will be pleasantly surprised to see notations
of vital events taking place as late as 2000! In addition, in registers
for larger towns, such as Sighet, you will find the address of residence.
This is extremely important if you want to visit your ancestral town, or
otherwise obtain a photograph of the place your family lived. We are also
finding parents names, Hungarian and Yiddish or Hebrew names,occupations
and causes of death.

In the manner that archives have of surprising researchers,and although
we thought that we had all the records >from prior to 1895,we also found
another group of records reaching back to about 1850.

These indexes of records will eventually be uploaded to JewishGen,but not
likely until sometime in the first half of 2016. As before, we do not have
permission to put images online, but we can provide an image of a page to
you with a desired record for a $10 donation to the Project. Make your
donation and send a copy of your receipt >from JewishGen to Vivian Kahn at
_vkahn@kmort.org_ (mailto:vkahn@kmort.org)with the Book and Record number
for the record or records you want.


For those who wish to help us obtain images of the registers, and there
are still plenty that are waiting for us, we hope you will be moved to
make a donation, and indeed, a donation that will give you immediate
access to the completed work, and the work as it is completed.

Access to this second set of records will be opened right now to those
who contribute $100 or more to The Maramaros Transcribing Project on
JewishGen. Send your receipt to Vivian Kahn at _vkahn@kmort.com_
(mailto:vkahn@kmort.com)
and your access will be processed. If you prefer to transcribe records,
you will be granted access as soon as you have completed 500 usable
records (i.e.generally correct transcription, data in the correct place,
etc.). Contact Sandy Malek at _sandymalek@aol.com_
(mailto:sandymalek@aol.com) to volunteer as an indexer for the Project.

We have virtually depleted all contributions >from the First Set of

obtaining record images. We do look forward to your participation in
this project.
