Conflicting info on JOWBR at JewishGen Hungary database #hungary
I would appreciate it if someone can explain this
conflicting information. I have been searching for the burial of my
great-grandfather, David Schwartz, at JOWBR in the Hungarian database
for a while now, returning every so often, since they keep updating.
What I know is that he died after 1905 and before 1911 in
Oradea, Romania (then Nagyvarad, CriÅ?ana, A-H then). This time, I
found 2 possible, and got excited, but certain facts did not make
sense. I was hoping someone can explain:
1-David Shlomo Schwartz died at 55 (correct age) on 10
Tamuz 5671, which converts to July 6, 1911 (possible), but the details
say his â??Spouseâ?? was â??Abrahamâ??! His spouse was my ggm Estica (Ester).
2-â??Aharon Schwartzâ?? (Hebrew name, correct), â??date 1905â??
(possible) and â??father Dovidâ??. But then when I go into the details, it
says â??28 Tamuz 5684â?? which converts to 30 July 1924! Why 2 very
different dates, one in English, the other Hebrew?
Thanks for any help in clearing these up!

and Szatmar (Satu Mare)
there are many possible reasons for discrepancies, especially in transcribed=
records, no matter how hard we try to avoid errors. stuff happens. it's=
always best to look at the original documents, in this case the photo of=
the stone itself, if at all possible.
the picture of David Shlomo SCHWARTZ's stone offers very little additional=
information, but it does say that he was the son of Avraham (a"h). =
somebody seems to have entered it as spouse instead of father.
there is no picture for Aharon SCHWARTZ, 's date of death, so no idea where=
the 1905 comes from. it might be a misreading or a typo. you should try=
to get a picture.
