Could 'Bonth' be just an abbreviation for 'Barnett'? Perhaps he didn't know
the 'correct' spelling for Barnett- and Bonth seemed a plausible spelling.
Just a thought-
My father was also Barnett- his name was Yisroel Ber.

Re: Yosef B'reb Tuvya - Yiddish? #belarus

A memorial card >from grandfather's funeral in 1945 had these words "Yosef
B'reb Tuvya" written in ink underneath the printed name of the deceased,
Joseph. Can anyone tell me the language, what the words are and what they
mean?
Yosef B'reb Tuvya is the Hebrew name of Yosef (Joseph), son of Reb (Mr.)
Tuvya.

The biblic name Joseph is of ine of the youngest sons of Jakob, the gransson
of Abraham.
The name Tuvya was meentioned in the bible in three places:
1. In the book of the prophet Zecharia (chapter 6, verse 10) as the name of
one who came back >from Babylon. He donated money and gold to make the crown
of the high priest ("cohen gadol" - the leader of the rituals in the tempel
in Jerusalem).

2. In the second book of History (the last book of the bible), chapter 17,
verse 8, as the name of one of the Levis that were sent by King Jehoshafat
to teach the Tora. In this occurrrance it is spelled Toviyahu.

3. In the book of Nechemia as the name of one who objected to the
reconstruction of the walls of Jerusalem.

announcements for the new year #belarus

Joyce Field <jfield@...>
 

To the Belarus SIG: these announcements were in the JewishGen Digest
of December 28

Subject: New JewishGen Database - Yizkor Book Necrology Database

On the last day of Hanukah, to keep the flame burning...

JewishGen is pleased to announce a major new database:
The JewishGen Yizkor Book Necrology Database. This database
indexes the names of persons in the necrologies -- the lists
of Holocaust martyrs -- published in the Yizkor Books which
have been translated as part of the JewishGen Yizkor Book
Translation Project.

The database currently contains over 90,000 entries >from the
necrologies of 110 different Yizkor Books. Many of these
entries are for family groups; therefore the 90,000 entries
in this database represent well over 200,000 individuals.

While most of these necrologies have already been available
on the JewishGen web site, the JewishGen Yizkor Book Necrology
Database allows the surnames to be searched via Daitch-Mokotoff
Soundex. Because most of these names were transliterated from
Hebrew and Yiddish, the spellings of the surnames may not be
as you are used to seeing them in Latin-alphabet sources;
therefore, standard internet searches would not find them.
The Soundex search capabilities of this new database solves
this problem.

The JewishGen Yizkor Book Necrology Database can be found at
http://www.jewishgen.org/databases/yizkor


The database is an index of names; it directs researchers
back to the online translation of the Yizkor Book itself,
where more complete information may be available, at
http://www.jewishgen.org/yizkor/translations.html

If the necrology in your ancestral town's Yizkor Book is not
yet part of this database, please consider transcribing it,
and submitting it to the JewishGen Yizkor Book Project, so
that it can then be added to this ongoing effort. The
Yizkor Book Project's donation procedures can be found at
http://www.jewishgen.org/yizkor/donation/

As an added bonus, the names >from the Necrology Database are
also searchable >from the respective JewishGen "All Country"
databases. For example, the names >from the necrologies in
Yizkor Books for towns now in Belarus are also searchable
via the "All Belarus Database" as well as >from the Necrology
Database, etc. This is part of JewishGen's ongoing database
integration efforts.

The Necrology database was created by a team of volunteers,
working under the supervision of Ernie Fine, who extracted the
names >from the necrologies in the individual Yizkor Books and
input them into Excel spreadsheets, which were then imported
into the database.

JewishGen would like to thank the Necrology Database Project
Manager, Ernie Fine, for his hard work and diligent efforts
in making this database a reality. Thanks also go to John
Berman, the Yizkor Book Database Manager, for his work in
updating the bibliographic database to accommodate the links
to the online translations; to Michael Tobias, our database
guru, for his magic in constructing this new interface; to
Joyce Field, the Yizkor Book Project Manager; and of course
to all those who have transliterated and submitted necrologies
to the JewishGen Yizkor Book Project.

Subject: OWBR staff

I am pleased to announce that Ernie Fine has accepted the challenge
of taking over as Technical Coordinator of the OWBR, the ONLINE
WORLDWIDE BURIAL REGISTRY,
http://www.jewishgen.org/databases/Cemetery/

After completing the initial phase of the Yizkor Book Necrology
Database (which was launched today at:
http://www.jewishgen.org/databases/yizkor
Ernie had proven his mettle and was eager for the challenges of another
important project. Needless to say, he will still be working on updates
to the Necrology database

Harriet Brown, who has served and will continue to serve the Yizkor
Book Project in numerous important functions, is taking over
additional duties as the OWBR Administrative Coordinator. Rebecca
Gerber continues her vital data entry functions for OWBR.

Henceforth, all OWBR donor agreements should be sent to Harriet Brown
and all data to Ernie Fine. Their postal addresses are listed at
http://www.jewishgen.org/databases/Cemetery/. They can be reached by
email at:
Harriet Brown: hnbrown@gdinet.com
Ernie Fine: efine@cygnetserv.com

If you want to volunteer to coordinate collecting burial information
for a city or state or country, please contact me, Joyce Field, at
jfield@jewishgen.org. If you have burial data to contribute, please
read the instructions at http://www.jewishgen.org/databases/Cemetery/
and contact Harriet Brown if you have questions.

Every JewishGen project is successful only because of the people who
volunteer their time and talents to the project. There are never
enough compliments for these dedicated people and never enough
adjectives to describe their brilliant work. My sincere wishes for
a new year full of success and fulfillment to all our volunteers and
donors of data.

Names:Rossoff #belarus

Richard/Rachel Levine <richrach@...>
 

Then
finally, his certificate (1912) shows his signature clearly as "Bonth Mose
Rossoff". I have not yet been able to find his name on a manifest. The
Petition shows his arrival at Castle Garden on or about September 14, 1904
from Antwerp on the vessel "Ferland" (which I take as "Finland"). But the
Morton-Allen does not show Finland arriving on that date. I have tried
other dates and have given up, at least for the moment. Perhaps I have been
looking for the wrong name.
Several of my ancestors were not on the ships that were noted on their
Naturalization Papers. I had the best luck in locating people in
manifests by using the Passenger Arrival Index (soundex) for ships to
New York. I believe it includes >from July 1902 to 1943. I believe
many people just didn't remember the name of the ship or the correct
arrival date. You also should look at any possible variations of the
names. Since Rossoff is not as common a name as my Levines and Cohens
the index might be worth checking.

Re: Ethical Question, Found Date Discrepany on Cemetary Headstone #general

Hellfire <hellfire@...>
 

Dear Deborah,

This one really threw me too. I can see why it's so difficult to decide.

I asked my husband and my sons 8 and 10 (sometimes kids do know more than
we do:)) We discussed it for about 15 minutes at dinner and came to this
conclusion. If the stone can be fixed, for minimal cost, tell them, and
then tell them that you will take care of it. Otherwise let it be, while
they are living, and then change it, if you can afford to do so. In either
case, make sure the management of the cemetery knows that the discrepancy
exists so that they, at least, will give the correct information. Publish
the true dates for future generations.
