Want to return 1917 items belonging to Signoff /Siginoffski Lithuania #general

mimi lipscomb <txcuz@...>
 

I have two red glass items brought >from Lithuania in 1917 when the family
came to Gulfport, MS and opened a shoe repair shop there in 1921.
I am searching for Louis Eugene or Steven Lee SIGNOFF, sons of Milton,
radar tech for USAF during WWII. Their grandmother gave them to my aunt,
gentile first wife of their father. One may be a Rabbi. I spoke with
their aunt in Gulfport, MS, but they had lost touch. She said during the
cold war, some friend had gone to Russia doing genealogy, and found out
the original name was Siginoffski, and "he" was shoemaker to the Tsar.
Other names I recall were Eva and Ruby and Abe.

Simply put, these are all internationally known, well respected,

My father was known as Moreynu Arya Leyb, I only ever heard my mother
address him as Leybl which I thought was a familiar >from of address.

Moreynu I believe means teacher.
Brian Wyndham

Right on both counts. Leybl is an affectionate diminutive of the name
Leyb. The Hebrew for teacher is <moreh> and the title Morenu (it's not an
actual given name) means "our teacher." (But don't spell it Moreynu,
because adding that "y" pluralizes the noun and makes it mean "our
teacherS.")

Re: The given name Lipman #general

Ury Link <uryl@...>
 

Dear Genners,
The name Lipman as a given name is a very old Jewish-German name. The name
is a nickname to the Hebrew names Eliezer and Elazar (it can also be a
nickname to the Hebrew names Uri and Yom-Tov). The resones that it is a
nickname to Eliezer and Elazar are very simple, (E)liezer and (E)lazar
become Lezer and Luser in the Middle ages and than it go over to the first
letter L and become Lipman or Liebman and also Lipa.The source of the names
are the German word Liebe (man) what mean :Love,to Love, Beloved. It are few
variants of this given name: Lieverman 1135 in Koln, Lefman 1139 also in
Koln, Liepman 1263 in Dortmund, Lipman 1350 in Nurnberg, Lieberman 1372 in
Koln, Liebman in 1400 in Oppenheim, Liebmanne in 1405 in Bad Kreuznach and
more ,all the towns are in Germany. It can also coming >from the German word
Lippe what mean Lips, I know that in few German books the give the source of
the name Lipman as get out >from the word Lippe. Another suggestion is that
it come >from the name of the river the Lippe in Westphalia Germany. The
last two sample are for German given names that also are in used in the
Middle ages by not Jewish people. Lipman is also a nickname to the Hebrew
name Uri and this combination is also old. I think that the reasons are ,
the translation of the name Uri to German is: (mein) Licht (My Light) and
this word begin with the letter L the begin letter of Lipman. It can also be
that the first letter of Uri is Alef and the begin letter of Ahuv (loved) is
also Alef and Ahuv in German is Lieb ,and so we have the name Liebman or
Lipman.The last two explanation about Uri and Lipman are only my suggestion
and if it is not correct it is only my error.Why the combination Yom-Tov
Lipman is I don't know,I try to find it but I have until today not a good
argument for it.It can that the combination is given to honore of the famos
Rabbi of Prag Rabbi Yom-Tov Lipman Muelhausen how was Rabbi in Prag in the
14-15 century and after him also in Prag Rabbi Yom -Tov Lipman Heller in the
16 century.

Help in Lod Israel, Please. #general

My wife and I have been trying to locate family survivors. Through the
American Red Cross, we have located the former Suzy ESKENAZI in Lod.
She has released her address, but the ARC has neglected to provide her
married name to us. Suzy, according to the information we have been sent,
lives at Gilboea Str, Lod. She has one son. I would like to know
her last name so that we may correspond and share family information. An
email address would also be appreciated.

Please correspond directly to me: SteinHE@...

We have been contacted by a representative of the Ratno, Urkraine

translated and put online on the JewishGen Yizkor Book Project site.
The book is:
Ratno, Ukraine: Ratne; sipura shel kehila yehudit she-hushmeda
(Ratne; the story of a Jewish community that was destroyed), Editor:
Nahman Tamir, Tel Aviv, Ratno Society in Israel, 1983 (H, 331 pages).

Anyone who is interested in translating this book or setting up a
translation project, please contact me. The landsmanschaft has no
one to do the translation and, of course, will give JewishGen
permission to put the translation on our web site. I hope that
someone with roots in this town will volunteer to coordinate the
project. Our procedures can be found at

What's ViewMate? #general

Alan Rackow <rackow@...>
 

I've been away for a while and returned recently to the Group. Several
messages refer to ViewMate. What is it and where on the Web?

MODERATOR NOTE: ViewMate is a new service for the posting of Jewish
genealogy related graphics (photos, text images, etc). Details and
instructions are found at http://www.jewishgen.org/ViewMate/


Child's Rstaurant #general

Not really genealogical, but Child's restaurant in Winnipeg was the hangout
for the Jewish university students in the late 40s and possibly beyond.
Where else could you get toast and coffee with several refills for 10
cents?
