Re: help with given name 'Seinnvel' or.. #general

I don't suppose the name could be Zamvel or Zanvel? Sounds pretty close
to what my Hebrew name is.

The name appears to be Seinnvel. Is this a known
given name, and if not is there anything close. The
second 'n' which appears to be attached to the 'v',
is what's puzzling me. It's a very stylized piece
of penmanship and somewhat indistinct.

Thanks,

Trip to Budapest #hungary

Jerry Zeisler <Jerry.Zeisler@...>
 

To All,
I am currently planning a trip to Hungary beginning the first week of April
for about 5 days. The trip is mostly for genealogy purposes. I plan on going
to Eger, Miskolc, Gyongyos and Budapest. I would appreciate any suggestions
on an itinerary, hotels, and if anyone can suggest a translator and possible
travel partner. I will be traveling alone and have no experience with the
Hungarian language other than >from reading the vital records provided by the
LDS.

At a minimum, I would like to visit the Jewish cemeteries in the smaller
towns, and of course to the Archives in Budapest.

Thanks for any help or guidance you can provide.

I need a short lesson on surnames for Cuba. Perhaps this explanation
would also apply to most countries in South America? I have found
four tombstones for people named ALHADEFF in the Sephardic Cemetery
in Havana, Cuba. Records for three of these bear "double surnames."
What does this mean? Here are the four listings:

Ventura Alhadef Arrobas, died 10 August 1952
Jacobo Altalef [Alhadef?], died 4 April 1948
Rafael Alhadef Arrobas, died 21 April 1966
Fany Alhadef Avanda, died 3 August 1983

I hope someone can help!
It isn't only Cuban names, nor even only Latin American names, but Iberian
names in general (if, as I assume, it covers Portuguese as well).

The first surname is that of the principal's father, the second that of his
mother. Often one sees "y" between them, as "Alhadef y Arrobas", but not always.

from this, it appears that Ventura and Rafael were siblings, while Fany may
have been a cousin on the paternal side.

If Jacobo carried both names without the square brackets, he may have been
a cousin on the maternal side, but of course if the two names are alternate
readings: a) if "Alhadef" is the correct reading, he may have been either a
sibling or cousin of Ventura; b) if "Altalef" is the correct reading he is
an innocent passer-by.

The name appears to be Seinnvel. Is this a known

second 'n' which appears to be attached to the 'v',
