JewishGen Discussion Group #JewishGen Re: SA ships: The Cape Run and the Jewishgen Archives #general


The Jewishgen Archives came in very handy when my cousin and I were trying to
decipher the headings of the Civil Registration I received >from Warsaw...I
used the translation book at the FHC for most of the words, but they didnt
have a translation for cousin looked up a posting in the Archives,
and there it was, it means godfather...does anyone know what the word Pathe or
Tathe means, used in a similar context...I m guessing it might mean godmother
or the person who passes the baby to the godfather to pass to the Mohel...any
guesses? Jane Lowenkron Foss, NYC
