Where Are the Szobrancz Records? #hungary


Vivian Kahn
 

In my neverending quest to find the Szobrancz vital records I followed a
lead to the archives in Satoraljaujhely. Just received the following
response >from Dr. Istvan Hogye who says that they don't have any Szobrancz
records. With the help of a dictionary I've been able to get the gist of
the message which regretfully informs me that the records are not in this
archive. Unless I'm mistaken, the message also states (incorrectly) that
Szob rancz is now in the Ukraine Republic and suggests that I direct my
requests there.

An accurate translation of the following would be appreciated by all of us
with Szobrancz roots.

<<A Moskovits es Neumann csaladokra vonatkozo adatokat sajnosnem tudjuk
szolgaltatni, mivel a megadott szuletesi helyet Szobranc, a torteneti Ung
vm-hez tyartozott. Leveltarunkban Zemplen varmegye knozsegeinek egyhazi es
vilagi anyakonyveit orizzuk. Szobranc jelenleg az Ukran Koztarsasaghoz
tartozik, igy ajanlom, hogy az ungvari leveltarhoz forduljon keresevel.>>

BTW, I have received a message >from Prof. Hartmann, the person who does
reportedly have copies of the Szobrancz records. He promises a detailed
response very soon. I will keep you all posted.

We can not supply any records regarding the Moskovits and Neumann families,
because the place of birth - Szobranc - belonged to the historical county of
Ung. In our archive we keep only records of the county Zemplen >from the
religious as well as secular communities . Szobranc belongs nowadays to the
Republic Ukraine , I would recommend you to ask them for assistance.

I hope it helps, my Hungarian is fluent, but my english could be better
Best regards

mod.- Gabor you are too modest. The translation is very clear. As Vivian Kahn pointed out in her original message Szobranc is in the Slovak Republic and not in the Ukraine. LS

Vivian,

I also thought Sobrancz was now in UKR. If this is incorrect, could you
post the correct district county and country of present day Sobrancz.

BTW, thank you for being willing to take on the challenge of this
discovery!
