An Excerpt from A Book #hungary


Amit N
 

Hello,

I've been doing some renewed search on known family members, and found
out my grandmother's uncle appears on a book named:
A MagyarorszÃ¥gi Symbolikus NagypÃ¥holy fÅ?hatósÃ¥ga alatt dolgozó
szabadkÅ?mŹves pÃ¥holyok tagjainak nÊvsora : Hivatalos kiadÃ¥s / kiadja a
magyar kirålyi belßgyminiszter. - Budapest : Magyar Kirålyi Állami
Nyomda, 1920. -

Being in Israel I find it very hard to believe I will ever come across
a copy of that one. Is anyone on this group able to put a hand on this
book? I would appreciate the help. I am interested in an excerpt
regarding Dr. Istvan SPITZER >from Zombor/Sombor, which is supposed to
appear on page 215/263, not sure which or whether both.

I would appreciate any help.
Best regards,
Amit Naor

Dear Amit,

A check of WorldCat using the words magyarorszagi symbolikus in the title search indicates this was an annual periodical or yearbook for Hungarian Freemasons. Â That suggests your great-great-uncle was a Freemason and that the book may have some information on him. Â The bibliographical record for this periodical is extremely confusing and individual year volumes are rarely cataloged so I can't tell if it's held by a library in WorldCat. Â I suggest contacting the Hungarian National Library, which should have a full run of this periodical.

Good luck in your research.

Yours,

Probably unlikely that you'll find this book anywhere in Israel unless someone
has a personal copy but you may be able to find it on-line. Check the National
Szechenyi Library catalogue at http://nektar2.oszk.hu/librivision_eng.html
The Szechenyi reportedly has a copy of all materials printed in Hungary. See
http://www.theeuropeanlibrary.org/tel4/contributor/P01210 for description of
collection and more information.
