BRANHOLEN #general

TBanyai78@...
 

I'm searching for anyone named Branholen. According to my g-grandfather's
death certificate his father's name was Max Branholen, later changed to
Banyai. My family is >from Hungary, though the name sounds German to me.
However, inquiries to some German friends telling me that it wasn't a
German name have left me wondering. I also know that my g-grandfather's
first name was Armin which is a German name. The family might have been
from a town/city which was German and then might have been possibly
changed to Hungarian as borders in Europe changed as wars were won or lost.

Can someone help unravel this mystery for me? I don't know what to do
next. Thanks for any help and/or suggestions.

You can write to me privately if you prefer at TBanyai78@aol.com.

Old newspapers #general

solomon schlussel <solschlussel@...>
 

Mr.Howard Segal posted a question on Nov. 15, if there
is a way he could look up the Forward Newspaper from
the 1940. I'm sure more people could use this
information.The New York Public Library on Fifth Ave &
42nd Street in Manhatten N.Y. in the Jewish Division
has all old newspapers even pre war Europianpapers.
The Yivo Inst. might have them too.

Naming patterns (again) #general

David A Reed <dak.reed@...>
 

Can anyone answer this puzzle re. Sephardi naming patterns?

If Abraham, son of Jacob marries Sarah, daughter of Abraham, their first
son should, following conventional Sephardi practice, be named Jacob after
his paternal grandfather. The second son should, of course, be named
Abraham for his maternal grandfather but that would then mean giving him
the same name as his father.

My question is, therefore, which tradition takes precedence in such a case?

13 day delay between death and burial #general

Ricki L. Zunk <rickiz@...>
 

I just learned of the whereabouts of the burial of my mgf's first
cousin. According to the cemetery records, Morris KRAMER (Ha'Levi)
died 11/20/1978 but he was not buried until 12/2/1978. I can
understand a 2-5 day delay between death and burial (need time to get
relatives together; not allowed to hold funeral due to Shabbat or
"special" Jewish days), but a 13 day span of days seems very unusual.
Since I just learned of these dates today, I have not had the
opportunity to obtain a death certificate, which would not necessarily
give me the reason for the delay.

Does anyone know of any reason that there would be an almost two week
delay between death and burial for a man whose only living family
lived within 60 miles of his place of death? I am not aware of any
logical or religious reason for such a delay. Do you?

Looking forward to hearing your suggestions. BTW, his death was not
of "suspicious" nature (that I know to be true).

Thank you,

Searching for Lejb ZISER #general

Lili Susser <susserl@...>
 

Dear Genners
A while back I received a page of testimony >from Yad Vashem listing a Leib
Ziser, who in turn entered the testimony to Yad Vashem. Because the form is
both in Spanish and Hebrew or Yiddish I was unable to get the facts.
It concerns Blima Ziser/Susser >from Nowy Korczyn, Poland -as is the name of
my husbands mother also born there. The person who turned in this page
lives or lived in Buenos Aires, Argentina and claims to be a bro-in law.
If you know of anyone by the name Ziser in Buenos Aires, ( or anywhere
else) in Argentina or can help me find the family of the above person
please contact me personally at Susserl@mindspring.com
Thank you in advance

Brody, Ukraine Yizkor Book Translation #general

Marjorie Rosenfeld <marjorierosenfeld@...>
 

Through the kind assistance of Yitzhak Zorne (who supplied the book), Moshe
Lubianiker (who copied and mailed me the English portions of this book),
Beverly Shulster (who translated two poems >from the book), and the
JewishGen Yizkor Book folks, a small part of Ner Tamid Yizkor LeBrody (An
Eternal Light: Brody, in Memoriam) is now online at JewishGen's Yizkor Book site:

http://www.jewishgen.org/Yizkor/brody/brody.html

Mr. Lubianiker has just succeeded in getting permission for JewishGen to
publish a few selections >from this book by Joseph Parvari. These
selections, however, are in Hebrew and must be translated into English.
The work will require someone conversant with Hebrew and--even more
important--fluent in English. If there is any such person who also has a
personal interest in the city of Brody, Ukraine (formerly in Austrian
Galicia and, between the world wars, in Poland) and would be willing to
accomplish and donate to JewishGen a translation of any of the five Parvari
selections (1 to 5 pages in length amounting to about 10 pages in all), I
would like to hear >from you. Unpaid translators own the copyrights to
their translations. If it is necessary to raise funds for the translation
work via donations to JewishGen, then JewishGen (the employer of the
translator) will be the copyright holder of any translations done.

If you are interested in doing any of this translation work as an unpaid
volunteer, please e-mail me privately. If I don't find volunteers, I'll be
asking for donations to JewishGen in order to hire a translator. (NOTE:
the e-mail address given for me at the Web site is an old one, no longer
correct, so please use the address below.)
