About Emil Eskenazy Lewinger, (C)

FamilyTree DNA B456000 and GedMatch BM1775666.

My personal genealogy interests are working on my own family as well as Yugoslav, Austro-Hungarian & Jewish History in general as also Cristãos-Novos and Portuguese Inquisition in general. Don't be surprised if you find me in your tree! It's part of my work as a Geni curator to help clean up the World Tree, so I might end up in your branches. If you see my work in your tree, say hello! I'm delighted to meet you, and happy to be of service. And of course if I've made any mistakes, please let me know, and send me your sources. All of us, curators and users alike, work together here on Geni.

More than 95% of the profiles that I have either added or have management rights on are not directly related to me. They have been added as part of my work as an academic researcher, trying to reconnect the Jewish families who lived in the countries that formed the ex-Yugoslavia from the 19th century on. All the records were found in historical databases like:

  1. Yadvashem, Holocaust Museum
  2. Belgrade Chevra Kadisha and cemetery database
  3. Belgrade Jewish Museum births and marriage databases
  4. Belgrade Sajmiste concentration and extermination camp database
  5. Belgrade 1856 Montefiore census
  6. Nis 1895 Jewish historical census
  7. Anna Pizzuti database of jews that seek shelter in Italy during WW2
  8. Croatian Jewish scanned books
  9. Vienna Jewish scanned books
  10. Brazilian migration cards
  11. Hungary and Poland databases
  12. Skopje jewish books of births, death and marriages
  13. Skopje jewish census
  14. Belgrade historical archive on jewish families
  15. Jewishgen files on Bosnian families who migrated to Israel in 1948

and so on. If you have some different data on a profile that I entered, please send me a message before changing it. There is a lot of differences in dates and names in databases, mainly in the Yadvashem database, as a great part of the information was constructed based on community testimonies and the scarce sources that remained after WW2. A lot was discovered since the main corpus was constructed and several new information raised from other databases and testimonies from survivors.
