ViewMate translation request - Hungarian #hungary

Ross, Phil
 

I've posted a handwritten portion (the Comments section) of a 1913 Hungaria=
n birth record for which I need a translation.=20

During Germany's occupation of Budapest, Hungary in 1944, my Jewish cousin,=
Lily Rosenbluth, was able to obtain false identity papers stating she was =
supposedly a Christian woman named "Ilona Rahner" born in 1913. With these=
false identity papers, Lily was able to survive the occupation largely unm=
olested. There was an actual person named Ilona Rahner born in Budapest in=
1913, as reflected in Budapest's original Civil Registration birth records=
>from that year (of which the attached image is a part). I am hoping that s=
omething in the Comments section of the birth record might provide some fur=
ther information about this actual person, and thus a clue as to how Lily m=
ay have been able to later assume her identity.=20

It is on ViewMate at the following address ...

Thank you very much for any and all responses.

Dear Leslie,

Please scan the record and share the document with all of us so that we can look
at it. I can also check the 1892 and 1895 gazetteer of the Kingdom of Hungary for the town. As Hungarian uses a lot of compound names, it is also possible he only have one part of the name.

Looking forward to seeing your file.

I indexed Subotica (Szabadka) births and marriage for Jewishgen in April
2018 but I do not know if it has been added to the database. I shall send
the two files to Erica directly.

As someone who has done a lot of research re Jews in Szabadka I would have
to say it is not easy. Most records are not on line. There is at the
Subotica Archives a file of rabbinical vital records dating back to the
early 18th Century. I would love to see these records transcribed someday.

If I remember correctly there is a Spitzer family in the local Jewish
cemetery, which is online.

Beyond that there is an 1828 land census of heads of households in the
Batschka. It has been fully transcribed by Martha Remer Connor; the
transcription which is now on line through FamilySearch, title "Germans
and Hungarians, 1828 Land Census, Bacs Bodrog, Hungary". JewishGen has
posted some names >from the 1828 census when it believes the person counted
was Jewish either because in some cases he was identified as Jewish or
because he had what seemed likely to be a Jewish name.

Radix which is a paid site has records of various sorts, including a list of
employees in 1917 on the Hungarian railway which included my great
grandfather and his brother in law.
Radix also has an 1891 Industrial survey.

JewishGen has posted by name List of Subotica Jews victims of the Fascist
Occupation 1941-1945.

Re: Facebook group and ViewMate

I don’t check the Facebook group so I don’t know how successful it is. But as a platform, I find Facebook hard to search for information, not users.

On ViewMate, I can search for my family surnames and ancestral towns, and, if I’m a translator, for posts by language. I don’t think that functionality exists on Facebook.

Maybe we should poll JewishGen users to find out if they use the Facebook group, if they get value from it, if they prefer it over ViewMate, etc.

Wolf COHEN #general

Sheldon Dan <sheldan1955@...>
 

I was looking in the "Bibliography of Jewish Genealogies and Family Histories"
and found something interesting. Under my last name (DAN) there was an entry
for COHEN, which would be our family genealogist's paternal ancestors. The
entry referred to a Wolf COHEN, born in 1860 in Lithuania and died in 1924
in San Francisco.

The entry referred to the Western Jewish History Center in Berkeley, CA, and
refers to "Wolf Cohen's Papers, 1924-1981." The papers included a family
genealogy and "an article about the Cohen and Dan family reunion."

Our genealogist, Walter Cohen of Austin, TX, did organize a series of family
reunions between 1980 and 2000, but they were for his mother's family, the
DAN/DEN/DUNN family of Lithuania. I am not sure where the reference to a
Cohen reunion came from, although it is possible that Walter also did some
research on the Cohen family and also organized a reunion on that side.

Can someone guide me to more information about Wolf Cohen and whether he and
Walter were related? I would appreciate any help in this matter.

Donations of Family Archives #general

Sheldon Dan <sheldan1955@...>
 

Our family genealogist, my father's cousin Walter Cohen, left a considerable
archive of the family research he did for our family. The DAN family (which
had a number of name variations, such as DEN and DUNN) originated in the area
of Taurage and Upynas, Lithuania. The descendants of Shraga Phievel DAN,
Solomon DEN, Zalman Eleazer SOLOMOVICH, Gutel HERSHOVITZ, Zalman Labe HERSCH,
Shraga Fivel DAN, Itchak Aizik DEN, Mordcha LEVITAN, Borach LEVITON, Hirsch
Mayer LEVITAN, Shlomo Zalman ZECHMAN, and Dvora Kuperman ROLNICK immigrated
to the United States, South Africa, Australia, the United Kingdom, Germany,
and Israel, and Walter organized a number of family reunions between 1980 and
2000.

I acquired the archive of the family >from Walter's nephews and have been
preserving the records. I have also revised the family history with
information that was not then available outside of the records. I think that
it is important to preserve both the family history and the records for
anyone who is interested in the history of the Dan/Den/Dunn family. I am
interested in repositories which have such genealogical records.

If anyone can direct me to the right organizations, that would be greatly
appreciated.
