Auschwitz Death Certificates #hungary

Peter Absolon
 

Couple of days ago Madeleine Isenberg, a friend of mine and my dear
Find-a-Grave collaborator, mentioned the website she found couple of
years ago, containing mora than 60.000 names >from Auschwitz Death
Registry, mainly >from years 1942-1943.

The website doesn't exist anymore. Here is only one page which is
still online, with names starting on A:
http://cleveland.indymedia.org/news/2007/03/24627.php

Luckily enough, Madeleine was able to download the whole list at the
time she found it. I was also able to retrieve them using Internet
Wayback Archive. Then I parsed them through to a spreadsheet and made
it available online here:

https://docs.google.com/spreadsheets/d/1tGFHHICtguU5_S_QuCBpW0awQIGF-X7gY30j0URRlok/edit?usp=sharing

The list contains 60000+ names, but not all of them are Jewish. You
can however, filter out whatever you want. You can even download a
offline XLS copy >from File menu. The filtering works if you go to
"Data - Filter Views / Create New Temporary Filter View" menu.

It is quite possible that you already know about that list - so I
apologize in advance, if it isn't something new. But I guess there
could be people who could find it useful.

I also forwarded the list to JewishGen Holocaust DB coordinator, who
could include it into JG as another source dataset.


Kind regards,

BREUERs of Lucenec, Slovakia #hungary

Alyson Breuer
 

Dear Fellow Genners:

I have again taken up the search in earnest for family members from
Lucenec and now look to all of you to see if any names ring bells in
your areas of study!

Fulop BREUER and his wife, Marie STOSSEL, had 4 children: ARANHA,
b.1876, OLGA, b.1878, MALVIN b. 1880 and IREN, b. 1883. Ferencz
BREUER (1846-1924) and his first wife, Julia SCHLESINGER (c1850 -
1893) also had children: BIRO (name changed in infancy >from Arnold),
b. 1876; ERNO, b. 1888, Olga (1879 - 1892) and JENO, b. 1888. There
are two more BREUERs: ERNO, b. 1877 and ARPAD, b. 1878, both sons of
Vilmos (Viliam) BREUER b. c1850 and Julia BRAUN b. c1850-1883. A
third son of Vilmos does not appear at all in the LDS filmed pages of
the Lucenec Rabbinical birth records for the late 19C >from which all
this information is taken -- my grandfather-in-law, OTTO BREUER, born
in 1875.

They all seem, with the exception of Otto, to have sunk tantalisingly
without trace and I am wondering how to track any of them down.
Lucenec was a thriving, prosperous Jewish community between the wars
with a splendid Synagogue, so there is no obvious economic reason why
the men should have left, though if the women married and moved away,
tracking them becomes much more difficult. Did any of them come to
the US? No idea, but they might have. Strangely, none of them is
listed in the wartime list of Jews in Lucenec on Yad Vashem, either as
victims or survivors.

I would dearly love to forge a link with any or all of these BREUERs,
so do please give me a heads-up if you can help!

Many thanks!

Tearing down some Brick Walls in Lublin Research: Aberbuch and Zylberberg families #warsaw #poland

suewelsh@...
 

I am tracing my maternal great grandparents, and have a few brick walls
appear. I'm hoping that somebody out there can help me get through these!

(Question 1) My great grandmother, Frejda Rezjla ZYLBERBERG was born 25
September 1867, in Lublin, Poland, according to the birth record of
which I have a copy. She married my grandafther, Moisha Avrum ABERBUCH
(b. c. 1850) at an unknown date in either Lublin or Warsaw or somewhere
in between. I have no records showing this information. Her oldest son,
Yoel HABERMAN (the surname got changed upon coming to America, with half
of their children using ABERBUCH as the surname, and the other half
using HABERMAN. Don't ask. It's an immigration thing!) Her eldest
son's documents >from America all consistently give his birth date as May
1874, in Poland. And as the other children were born, their dates also
are consistently provided as 1878 (Hadvoirah ABERBUCH), 1883 (Pearl
ABERBUCH), 1884 (Schlomo ABERBUCH), 1885 (my grandmother, Leiba),
Rachmiel ABERBUCH (1895).

Frejda wouldn't have had a child when she was 11. Could a full birth
certificate have been registered 5-10 years after the event??? It is in
the format of a witnessed event as per the language: "It came to pass
in the Governorate Capital Town of Lublin on the 1st / 13th day of
October in the year of one thousand eight hundred and sixty-seven at the
hour of nine in the morning. Appeared personally Orthodox Jew Rachmil
Zylberberg, a father, a day laborer, who at that time was 24 years of
age and residing here in Lublin, accompanied by witnesses, that is to
say, Tobiasz Liberman, a broker who at that time was 34 years of age,
and Izrael Icek Glikman, a speculator, who at that time was 44 years of
age, and both residing here in Lublin, and he showed us a baby of sex
female born here in Lublin, in a house located at number 880 on the 25th
day of September/6th day of October of the current year at the hour of
five in the morning, >from his spouse Sura Zylberberg nee Rotman, 26
years of age, to whom the double name had been given Frejda Rejzla." So
my big question is: How could this be?

(Question 2) I can't find any records of my great-grandfather. It's
probable that the spelling differed. ABERBUKH seems like a probable
spelling at the time. He was likely born in Brest Litovsk, but lived at
various times in the villages surrounding Lublin, Warsaw, Ivangorod
(Deblin nowadays) where my grandmother was born. He allegedly died in
Lublin, but I've never been able to confirm this. Any help finding any
information about him would be greatly appreciated.

(Question 3) Are there cadastral maps for Lublin >from 1850 - 1917 anywhere?

Thanks for any help!

Avraham Groll promotion #warsaw #poland

Warren Blatt <wblatt@...>
 

Dear Friends,

I'm very pleased to announce the promotion of Avraham Groll to the
position of Senior Director of Business Operations for JewishGen.

Avraham has been with the organization since 2008. Since that time,
he has worked tirelessly and expertly to help JewishGen regain a
stable financial footing, consistently surpassing self-imposed goals,
and implementing a development and communications strategy that has
helped JewishGen operate "within the black" for the past 6 years.
His skills and character make me confident that his leadership will
help ensure a robust and dynamic future for JewishGen.

In assuming his new duties as Senior Director of Business Operations,
Avraham will direct all non-technical aspects of the daily operations,
and be the point person for SIG leaders and volunteers. In this new
role, Avraham will take the lead in approving new project initiatives
and fundraising proposals; engaging other organizations in potential
partnership agreements; and working to strengthen our organizations
ability to continue its role in helping people research their Jewish
family history and heritage.

Avraham holds a BS in Business Administration >from Ramapo College of
New Jersey, an MBA >from Montclair State University, and is currently
in the final phases of completing an MS in Judaic Studies at Touro
College. His background and experience make him ideally suited for
this new position, and I know you all will be supportive of Avraham
as he assumes his new role, which will have another benefit as well,
for it will allow me to focus on high-level technical needs.
Avraham's promotion will allow me to begin working on a number of
projects that have been delayed, which I now hope to have completed
by the next conference. More details of this will be announced
throughout the year.

Please join me in congratulating Avraham on this well-deserved
promotion.

Re: Skeletons Found In Portugal May Be Remains From Inquisition #sephardic

Does anyone know if in situations like this (generally) or
specifically in this case they attempt to retrieve DNA & if so
does the data get shared with DNA Databases? Seems like it
would be a good idea.

Save the date! IAJGS Seattle Conference August 7-12. 2016 #sephardic

Janette Silverman <cochairs@...>
 

Chuck Weinstein, Phyllis Grossman and I, the Co-Chairs of the 36th
annual IAJGS Conference are very excited about being in Seattle in
August 2016. We hope you will join us at the Sheraton Downtown Seattle
for what is going to be a fabulous conference.

Our website is up and running: http://www.iajgs2016.org/ and the
conference theme is "The Wandering Jew". Details about the conference
focus, FAQs and other information can be found on the website. More
details will be available as programming evolves.

Under the News/Blog tab you will find instructions of how to get
blogposts and how to join the conference discussion group. This year's
discussion group is moderated and moderators will read every submission
for suitability.

We are anticipating the call for proposals going out around September 1,
2015, and registration opening January 4, 2016. Registration at the
hotel will be tied to conference registration. We are planning to have
all add-ons (trips, meals, etc.) available at the time conference
registration goes live.

Contact information for committee members is available under the contact
tab on the website.

Sephardic SIG #Sephardim Re: Skeletons Found In Portugal May Be Remains From Inquisition #sephardic

jps
 

Does anyone know if in situations like this (generally) or
specifically in this case they attempt to retrieve DNA & if so
does the data get shared with DNA Databases? Seems like it
would be a good idea.

A dozen skeletons found in an ancient garbage dump may be Jewish victims of
the Inquisition more than 400 years ago. In excavating what was the Jail
Cleaning Yard in the Inquisition Court of Evora (84 miles east of Lisbon,
Portugal), researchers found three male and nine female bodies. The "dump"
that was excavated was used between 1568 and 1634. It is impossible to
know with certainty if the remains are or are not Jewish.
