Re: Given name of Label/Labe #ukraine

Ida & Joseph Schwarcz <idayosef@...>
 

The name is pronounced Leyb and means lion and is quite common. It is Aryeh
in Hebrew and when a man is called to the Torah he is called Aryeh Leib,
sometimes even with the added name Yehuda (Judah) because the lion was the
symbol of the tribe of Judah. Leybl is simply the diminuitive of Leyb.

I have not seen this given name of Label or Labe anywhere else. Is any one
familiar with this as a given name? Could it be a title rather than a name.

Can I assume that Boris only has/had information for the names he was
researching?
I guess what I'm asking is, "Do I have to request/pay for a similar search
for my family names?" My past dealings with the Ukrainian Archives have
been okay, but not inexpensive.
Does Boris live in the U.S.? I would like, and I am sure additional
JewishGen researchers, to hear about his experience.
I anyone else has requested a search of these tax records, I would like to
hear >from them.

Where is Djtoma? Ztomia? #ukraine

Mark_J._Schwartz@...
 

Any help with figuring out where "Djtoma" is would be appreciated. My
great-aunt's naturalization papers list her birthplace and last residence
as "Djtoma, Russia". Her brother, my grandfather, listed his birthplace as
"Valene, Russia." I am assuming the "Valene" reference is to Vohlynia
Gubierna. The arriving ship manifest for my great-aunt and grandfather
list in cursive writing "Ztomia", "Zhtoria" or "Zhtovia". Any thoughts?

Thanks

Re: Unfamiliar Yiddish first names #general

Judith27
 

Steven Jacobs <noahben99@yahoo.com> recently asked about the
pronunciation of the following two names on tombstones:

< My great grandmother's name was Bertha, but her tombstone reads (>from
right to left): bet-yod-lamed-hay (space) chet-yod-hay>

This name looks like Bayla Chaya to me.

< My great aunt's name was Sylvia,her but her tombstone reads(>from right to
left): hay-bet-tet-vav-lamed-hay (space)zayin-lamed-daled-hay>>

Assuming that the Tet is a Tav, this phrase reads HaBetula Zelda or
the unmarried maiden, Zelda.

How would you pronounce these names in English?
For your ggm
Her names were Baile Chaya

For your aunt the wording says 'habetulah'(which means the young
unmarried girl or, literally, virgin) Zelda.

Location Of Burial Plot #general

2. Also, I have been told that, where a husband and wife are buried, side
by side, the wife must not have a Male (stranger)on her other side. Is
this so?

Our local cemetery (Gush Etzion) does this, but it is not halacha. It is also very
problematic logistically.
