JewishGen Discussion Group #JewishGen Regarding "Bad Yiddish Handwriting" #general


Steve Orlen
 

Dear Cousins,

Several thoughtful people responded to my request for a translation of my
great-great aunt's name, which I posted on ViewMate (3786 & 3787).

For the given names the consensus is Basya/Batya-Reitza. Everyone had
trouble reading the surname. Several people suggested BAUM. Among the
others were BOARM, BOEHM, BLUM, BLOOM, BOYM, andBLEM.

If anyone wants to take a final stab at it, I would be pleased.

And thanks again to the respondents.

Best, Steve Orlen
