Translation needed #general

ESES@...
 

Hi,
I received an e mail >from a friend in Poland who told me that he had found
about 7 page of Yiddish writings that he feels relate to the Holocaust. He
is not sure since he cannot read Yiddish and I am not very good at it.
If there is someone out there would like to take a look and see if they
can translate them it would be great and may be of value to all
Researchers.

Please contact me privately at ESES@AOL.COM

Thanks

Further Research #poland

Micah Males <mmm@...>
 

Greetings All,

I'm also pretty new to this list and very thankful for the existence of
JRI-Poland. I was wondering, once I've located my ancestor >from Warsaw in
the database, how can I further research him? His name shows up in the
Warsaw cemetery records. Is there some way to attain a picture of the
tombstone or any information about the pre-war family which apparently was
quite large? Thank you for any help that can be provided.

Microfilm and the Intel QX-3 computer microscope #belarus

Edward Rosenbaum <erosenbaum@...>
 

--0-762363272-976587327=:88213
Content-Type: text/plain; charset=us-ascii


The Belarus SIG is trying to investigate the possibility of purchasing
microfilm which contains various Belarus records, and using some hardware
and software to make copies of the data on the microfilm. One possibility
is the Intel QX-3 computer microscope, which supposedly has built-in 10x,
60x, and 200x magnifications lenses, and allows the images to be copied
directly to the PC. Does anyone have any experience with this product?

Please note that I have no financial connection with Intel. I am merely
trying to find the best product to do the job, and make more data available
to the Belarus SIG.

Please respond privately.

Looks like you have a typo in your definition. A "knygrisys" is a
bookbinder, with the root "knyg" meaning book.

Re: Petra ANDUJAR #general

Judith Romney Wegner
 

One of my ancestors was called PETRA ANDUJAR. My family comes from
Spain, however this name doesn't seem spanish.Do you have any ideas?

Violette Novo Germanaud France
On the contary -- to me ANDUJAR strongly suggested "Spain." -- it looked
like a Spanish rendering of a Moorish (Arabic) name. (The Moors ruled
Spain for centuries in medieval times and greatly influenced Spanish
culture).

The prefix "an" is a common Spanish form of the Arabic definite article
"al" -- as for instance in Andalusia, another hispanized Arabic name). And
"j" is a very common letter in Spanish -- though pronounced like English "h"

Following those hunches, I checked my Nat Geographic Atlas -- and sure
enough, there is indeed a Spanish town called Andujar. It's not far from
Cordoba, an important Sephardic-Jewish city in the Middle Ages --
Maimonides was born there). So, maybe Andujar is where some of your
Spanish family came from.

Re: The given name Leyb #general

Lymphactivist@...
 

"Tom Venetianer" <tom.vene@uol.com.br> wrote in message:
What kind of name is Leyb and how it relates to Yehuda? Is Leyb and
Lob the same name, just different spellings?
Leib is a yiddish name meaning "lion".

Arieh is the Hebrew name meaning "lion".

Yehudah (Judah) is the progenitor of the Tribe of Judah, whose symbol is
the lion, the "Lion of Judah".

In naming, these three names very often appear together.

Often the Hebrew and Yiddish forms of the animal appear as pairs, e.g.
Arieh-Leib, Hirsh-Tzvi, Dov-Ber.

And the tribal symbol appears together with the name, e.g. Yehudah-Leib,
Binyamin-Tzvi.

Re: The given name Leyb (Leib) #general

Lymphactivist@...
 

On 7 Dec 2000 Irwin Jacob Schiffres asks:
<< I have heard that Yehuda and Leib are kinui or go together.. But if
that were so, would a man named Leib call his son Judah? My mggf, Leib
Speier in 1872 wrote down a family history goingback to Joseph Plaut in
Neuenbrunslar (Hesse) in 1682. Included in this history is Leib' son,
Juda Speier-Holstein (1859-1938), my mgf. >>

Although the names Yehudah and Leib often go together, they are considered
different names, and there should be no problem in having a father and a
son bearing the different version. Frequent examples exist of this
principle. The one that comes to mind in my wife's family is her mother
Henya, called Anna, who had a sister Khana, called Hannah. All of those
names are derivatives of the same name, but become unique names.
