FRIEDMANN from Hlohovec #hungary

Amit,

Can we assume that you have already searched for FRIEDMANN >from Galgocz in the
JewishGen Hungary database? Have you also searched the Hlohovec, Slovakia, burial
records in the JOWBR database? What other sources have you consulted? Because of
its location, I suspect that there was Jewish migration to Galgocz >from Moravia in
the late 18th and 19th centuries. Your FRIEDMANN family may, therefore, be in
records in Czech archives. Contact the Austria-Czech SIG for information.

I also suggest that you research the history of the Jewish community in Galgocz,
which dates back to the 16th century. Raphael Patai mentions Mordecai Deutsch (d.
1773) who became rabbi of Galgocz in 1740 after serving in Bohemia. He also
mentions Rabbi Judah Loeb OPPENHEIMER who died in Galgocz in 1803 and also refers
to a blood libel case >from 1539, which he says is the first case of that type on
record.

It's much easier provide assistance if you can tell us what you know and what you
are looking for.

Dear Genners,

I believe I had tried to ask for this information before, but I guess
it won't hurt to try again.
I am searching for any information about a family named FRIEDMANN who
was based in modern Hlohovec in Slovakia, a town that back then was
called Galgocz in Hungarian and Freistadt in German.
The family members I know of lived in the mid 19th century or the
second half of it. It was a religious family, and a few members were
supposedly Rabbis (although I don't know what position they held). Of
those I know the names R' Mordechai FRIEDMANN, R' Moshe FRIEDMANN, and
a R' Aharon FRIEDMANN (although his connection to the family is not
quite clear). Mordechai was the father of Moshe, so it seems.
One of the problems I stumbled upon while trying to search information
about this family, apart >from the quite common family name, is the
fact that I have some documents which contain only the Hebrew names,
on others only the secular names. The matching is not always clear,
and for those for which I don't have the secular names, it might be
harder to locate official records.
Anyway, I am sorry for the long scroll, but I would love to get any
piece of information, if any of you have ever heard about a FRIEDMANN
from Hlohovec. Other guidance would be appreciated as well.
Thank you very much
