A great-uncle is listed in an 1897 Philadelphia Rosenbaum Bank Book ledger
and ticketed with the *first* name of "Joine". ... we are curious about
the "Joine" first name. Is there a translation for *Joine*? Is this a
Jewish name?
"Joine" (pronounced "Yoina") is Yiddish for the Hebrew given name
"Jonah".
