Hello and Happy Passover to all>

I am looking for information about my great-grandfather Mendel WEISS who
was a bootmaker for the Hungarian Cavalry. He came >from a town in
Austro-Hungary that sounds like Yora or Ungvar and settled in Braddock,
Pennsylvania in the early 1900s. He was married to Esther Zissel SCHWARTZ.

Thank you,
Renee Payne

Mazal is a girl's name #general

sophie frankenberg <sophiemend@...>
 

I have been a teacher in Jerusalem for 16 years, and MAZAL is certainly a
common girl's name, especially in families of Sephardi origin. I have come
across one MAZEL TOV - as a surname. With boys, I have come across YOM-TOV
[good day in Hebrew]and BEN-TOV[good son in Hebrew]; SIMAN-TOV[good sign]
is also common, as a family name.

Sophie Frankenberg [Jerusalem]

Looking for: Goldbaum and Frydman in LUBLIN
Mendelson and Hering in ZAMOSC
Rozenblatt in ZAMOSC and KIEV

Abraham's relationship to Sarah (other than husband-wife) #general

robert.gleek <robert.gleek@...>
 

I know this was only discussed a few weeks ago, but the answer has slipped
my mind...
At Seder I mentioned I had seen on the newsgroup that they were either
helf-brother half-sister, or step-brother step-sister or uncle-niece etc.
Can someone please clarify which is correct!
Thank You
Daniel Gleek

I'm be interested in knowing
is Stern the original surname or was it changed from
any other(s) to Stern? Thanks.

Re: New York Theater in the early 1900's #yiddish

David W. Harris <dharris1@...>
 

Two sources that may help in the request below are The New York Times
(assuming the play "Checkerboard" was presented in New York) and Variety
Magazine. Since the contract was signed in 1920, the show if ever
produced, likely opened in 1920 or 1921.

The New York Times Index for those years may help identify a review of the
play. Times newspapers and Variety Magazines >from the period may have
carried advertisements for the show, again helping to narrow down "opening
night" and any reviews.
Good Luck.

I have been searching for information regarding an ancestor. His real
name was Leon Frankel but he went by the name of Leo Frankle in the
theater. I have been told that he was an opera singer but then I also
found a contract that was dated August 16, 1920 in which he was hired as
an actor for "The Checkerboard". The contract says "P.M.A. - A.E.A.
Minimum Contract, Standard Form" at the top.

Cantor Joseph Rosenblatt #general

Darlene Sacks <DCSacks@...>
 

I'm new to this list and have already enjoyed reading your posts. I was
wondering if anyone knows anything about the infamous Cantor Joseph
Rosenblatt and what synagogue he was associated with in Poland. I
understand my husband's grandfather was at the same synagoue. Just thought
that my help in my trail of tracing their steps. I understand that he came
from an area in Russia where there was forest--possibly near the Ural
Mountains? His father was a bookkeeper for the Czar and worked in the
lumber business for the Czar. He was killed. The grandfather, mother and
two sisters left Russia, went to Poland for a while, then went to London
(where he also taught in the synagogue there, and then they proceeded to
come to the United States and settle in Philadelphia. The surname was
SPRINGEL. On his naturalization papers, he stated that he was born in Kiev.
Thanks. Darlene Sacks

Re: Obidiah? #general

Yosef Ash <j_ash@...>
 

Shalom, Margot.
You ask:

I have found an Obidiah Levi whom I think could be the Edward Levi I'm
searching for. I have never heard of this name before? Is Obidiah a Hebrew
name?
Ovadia (ayin-waw-bet-dalet-yod-hej) seems to be the Hebrew origin for the
name of Obidiah.

Would "Edward" be a possible replacement for it?
Edward would be as possible replacement as Bill or Gotfrid or any other
choice, that reb Obidia Levi has choosen to became Mr. Levi (may be Gotfrid
would be even better, becase Ovadia in Hebrew means: God Server!)

Hag sameah,
Josef ASH

Odessa research #general

Joyce Field <jfield@...>
 

This is a reply to Vladimir Tetelbaum regarding Odessa research.

Indeed there is a project to computerize the records in the Odessa
rabbinat fond, but it will not be completed for some years due to
the size of the project and the cost. The searchable database will
be available on the JewishGen server.

Donations to the project can be made online at
http://www.jewishgen.org/JewishGen-erosity/Research.html for the
Odessa Rabbinat Fond Project.
