Polish equivalent of Smith #general

AviDov@...
 

A branch of our my mother's family,originally >from Poland,was given the name
Smith
or perhaps opted for it at Ellis Island.
They know it was very difficult to pronounce
but have no idea how it sounded..
One theory is that it may have meant " tinsmith" or "metal worker" in Polish .
Could that have been " ZIELAZO " or something close to that ?
Another chance is that it actually sounded like SMITH,in which case,what are
some of the Polish words or names to fit that possibility ?

They know that siblings of the senior David Smith who went to Canada did not
use
the Smith name,but they lost contact over 75 years ago.

Not much to go on,but always worth an honest try. Abe Nutkis

Re: Equivalent 4 Szaja, Ruchli,Marya or Maria..... #general

Sue Kahana <sue@...>
 

I'll take a stab at Ruchli - probably Ruchel, aka Rachel today, Marya,
or Maria would probably be Miriam, can't even venture a guess at
Szaja, sorry.

But, as everybody keeps saying, just because those SOUND like they
should be equivilent, doesn't mean that they are. I have a neice named
Miriam whose Hebrew name is Malka.... There really doesn't have to be
any connection whatsoever.

Good luck.

Alex,

I'm delighted to find someone else in the family who's interested in the
family genealogy. I have a family tree that Esther Duffen and Ritzi Karp
Jacobs had helped me do up. It includes the Karps and Goldsteins. Also, I
assume you already have the Jacobson family tree that was done back in the
1950s, I think. By the way, I did a taped interview of Esther just a few
months before she died (what a sad shock), in which she talked about how the
Karps and the Caplans met each other in the old country. Dora and Sarah
Karp, sisters of Rebecca (Mrs. Isaac) Jacobson married Joshe and Isaac
Caplan. My great parents were Sarah and Isaac Caplan. Of course, Sarah,
Dora, and Rebecca's father was Israel Joseph Karp, who was apparently quite
an interesting character. Well, anyway, there's lots to talk about.

Re: Equivalent 4 Szaja, Ruchli,Marya or Maria..... #general

Roberta Sheps <roberta_l_sheps@...>
 

More educated linguists than I may have other views, but on the
assumption that "Sz" would be pronounced "sh" and "j" as the consonant
"y", I would deduce that Szaja would be pronounced, in English spelling,
Shaya, and that the Hebrew is Chaya.

I would agree that Ruchli is probably a shortened form of Rochel and
Marya is Miriam.
