Researching Angela DUNAI- need help #general

Jessica Sander <jessicasander87@...>
 

Hello,
I am researching my Hungarian grandmother to determine if she is Jewish. Her
name is Angela DUNAI, DOB: 18.2.1920, married name KOCSIS.
She escaped across the boarder to Austria during WWII before immigrating to
Australia.
I would appreciate if there is any researchers or others like me who have
looked into the DUNAI name in Hungary, who would be willing to share their
findings/knowledge with me.
Any help would be greatly appreciated.

Thank you

Jessica

Genealo-J #137 has just been published #france

Georges Graner
 

Genealo-J, publication of the Jewish Genealogical Society of France,
Issue 137, March 2019 has just been published.

Many Jews >from Algeria settled in metropolitan France during the first
half of the 20th century. Jean Laloum tries to follow their fate during
World War 2 and especially during the period of the Vichy government. As
for all French Jews, they lost their jobs, even when they were small
businesses. For example, Laloum quotes several widows who were
costermongers and were not allowed to continue their jobs. Most of the
1,500 Jews >from Algeria were eventually arrestedby the Nazis and the
French police and deported : only five percent of those deported
survived. Laloum plans to to list in detail all these Jews. He begins by
those originating >from the region of Constantine, namely those >from
Guelma, Jemmapes, Khenchela, La Calle, Lafayette, Le Tarf, Mac-Mahon,
Oued Zenati and Philippeville.

Julien Colet tells the story of his great-grandmother, Fortunée Abignoli
nee Dyan. She was born in Cairo, probably in 1890. In 1919, she married
Moise Abignoli who already had been married twice and had five children
from his previous marriages. After the birth of a daughter, they settled
in Marseille in 1920, where a son was born in 1923. Moise died in 1936.
Fortunee stayed in Marseille during the war, even after the German army
occupied the city. She was arrested in a roundup in January 1943 and
confined in Compiegne and Drancy. Deported in Convoy #42 she was killed
in Sobibor in March. Colet was amazed to find that the present members
of Fortunee’s family have different and distorted versions of her life.
After the war Fortunee’s fate still casts a heavy shadow upon her
children, grandchildren, and even perhaps great-grandchildren. This
story makes it obvious that the effect of the Holocaust has lasted long
after the war.

When Victor Fribourg died in New York on May 7, 1884, a long obituary
was published in the New York Times and in several other states. He is
so famous in his family that even in 1972, a wedding announcement in the
New York Times says : "The bride is a descendant of Victor Fribourg, who
was captain under Napoleon at the Battle of Waterloo.” Anne-Marie
Fribourg, who belongs to another branch of the same family, studied in
detail the life of Victor, who was born in Niedervisse (Lorraine) on
January 10, 1797, participated in the last Napoleonic wars and emigrated
to New York with his family in 1847. He became a prosperous businessman,
had nine children, at least 37 grandchildren and numerous offspring who
scattered in many of the United States and even in Peru. Fribourg
corrects several details in Victor’s legend, especially she shows that
he has never been an officer.

Andrée Margolin nee Lantz, an active member of our society for decades,
died in 2018. She left an interesting testimony of her life during World
War II. Born in 1924, she was a student in Paris and later in
Clermont-Ferrand during the German occupation. She tells of her
determination to pursue higher education in spite of all the obstacles
she is faced as a Jew and explains how her family was able to escape
deportation.

Eliane Roos Schuhl describes a medieval seal with the tree of life and
two birds. Deciphering Menahem Ezobi’s name on his medieval seal matrix
led Roos Schuhl to look for members of this family native of the city of
Orange (Vaucluse) in the 13th century. Three of them, father and sons,
were known as Hebrew poets. The article deals with a few individuals
bearing this rare name in Beziers, Carcassonne, Perpignan, Carpentras
and Toulouse and all the way to Bulgaria, Italy, Spain and Turkey.

Konyatyn, Ukraine #general

Rony Golan
 

Dear all,

I am looking for sources on Konyatyn, Ukraine.

I think I identified it as located at 48°03' N 24°56' E
south-south-west of Kuty.

JGFF names only one researcher interested in Konyatyn, while Miriam
Weiner's RTR does not have any information of the archives that may
have BMD records.

I wonder where vital records fro Konyatyn are held (for 1885-1905) and
whether there are any other sources for research.

Any insights will be greatly appreciated.

Thank you,

ViewMate translation request - Polish - SCHLANGER birth certificate notes #general

David Sanger <ds@...>
 

Hi everyone:

I would appreciate an English translation of the Polish text of the
notes section of my grandfather's Josef Schlanger's birth certificate.
He was born 8 Nov 1885 in Jezowe and his parents were Berl Schalnger
and Chana Brand.
This is a 1902 copy >from the Rudnik office which he got before
emigrating to the UK.
I know it gives the date of his parent's marriage in 1897 (thanks
Jonathan) (when he was 12 years old!) but am wondering what the full
message is
