Rachel Magaziner Stern

Rachel's Tree

In Humenne around 1825, Rachel Magaziner gave birth to Zsofia, the daughter of Tobias Stern. The only record I have found that clearly relates to this woman is Zsofia's 1900 Homonna death record, which identifies her parents as Tobias Stern and Rachel Magaziner. To have a child born in 1825, as Zsofia was, Rachel was probably born around 1805 or before. She could have been an early daughter of Lowi and Lea or possibly even Lowi's much younger sister. But there are no records available that early and Rachel and Stern are very common names so it can very hard to find anything records that clearly refer to her.

Rachel and Tobias probably had other children but no records are available early enough to be certain. I noticed an Abraham Stern in Humenne (also called Adolf) who had a child named Tobias and one named Zsofia, while Zsofia had a child named Tobias and one named Abraham who was known as Adolf. This doesn't seem like a coincidence. There are several other people with the surname Stern who gave their child the uncommon first name Tobias, but none of this is proof of a connection.

Children of Rachel Magaziner and Tobias Stern include:

  1. Zsofia Stern (b: 1825)

Generation #2

Zsofia Stern

Zsofia Stern was born in Humenne around 1825, the daughter of Tobias Stern and Rachel Magaziner. Her Hebrew name was Shifra, and she sometimes appears in records that way. She married Jakab Klein. This is the same name as the husband of another possible relative, Ester Magaziner, but this is certainly just a coincidence. Jakab Klein is a very common name and Zsofia and Ester's children's birth dates overlap.

Zsofia's husband Jakab was born in 1822. They had at least four children between 1846 and 1852. Jakab apparently died in Humenne on November 21, 1852. It is possible that this death record was for a different Jakab Klein, but Jakab and Zsofia had their last child in 1852 and Zsofia never remarried.

In the 1869 census, Zsofia was a widow living with three of their children (oldest child Pepi was married and probably living with her husband). Zsofia was working as innkeeper, an occupation pursued by several other Magaziners: Lowi, Emil and Anchell's widow Sari Ganzfried.

Zsofia died on March 21, 1900 in Humenne at the age of 74 and was buried in the Jewish cemetery in Humenne. Her death record and tombstone identify her as the widow of Jakab Klein.

Children of Zsofia Stern and Jakab Klein:

  2. Tobias Klein (b: 10 NOV 1850)

They had at least two daughters: Aurelia born in Kassa and Margit born in Eperjes. Those two converted to Catholicism and changed their surname from Klein to Kis in 1900.

Rosalia died in Kassa on December 11, 1896 and was buried at the Jewish cemetery there. Tobias had already passed when Rosalia died, but I have found no record of his death or burial. I have also found no further information about their daughters or any other children they may have had.

In Kassa on May 21, 1899, Jakab married a definite member of this family: Sarolta Weinberger, the granddaughter of Fani Magaziner, so it's possible they are 2nd or 3rd cousins. Sarolta was born in Beregszasz, Hungary on December 24, 1877. They had four children.

Jakab died on March 23, 1935 in Budapest and was buried at Kozma Utcai Izraelita Temeto in 1935. Sarolta died of pneumonia in Budapest on January 24, 1941 and was buried with Jakab at Kozma utca.
