What is a farible #general

Anita <anitwal@...>
 

A " farible" is what a person has when you don't invite them to the
wedding, party or event that everyone else is going to. I first heard
it in South Africa when the widow of my father's cousin was not invited
to my sons wedding.(The bride's family did not realize how big a family
the Canadian groom had in South Africa and so had to leave out the widow)
She would not speak to my father even though she had not seen him for
over 50 years. She had a "farible" against him.
I think it is a Yiddish Litvack expression.

Re: Pregnant women immigrants #general

A. E. Jordan
 

Someone had written in earlier in the summer questioning pregnant women
and infants traveling to America and asserted that children under 18
months were not permitted.

While there were some anecdotal replies I decided to do a quick search
of the Ellis Island Data Base using the Moorse program. On the first
letter "S" for the last name and age 0 to 1 I got no less than over
37,000 names -- and that was just one letter of the alphabet. Hence I
think it is pretty safe to say immigrant with infants was not all that
uncommon through Ellis Island. What's more I scanned the names on the
first page and saw many >from 1900 or earlier.

Hope that helps in the answer to the question.

Allan Jordan

Records in the Lithuanian Archives #general

The most current list of records stored in the Lithuanian Archives,
as well as those records for Belarus and the Ukraine, can be found on
Miriam Weiner's web site < http://www.rtrfoundation.org >. Printed
lists, once they are printed, cannot be updated. However, Miriam's
lists on her web site can be updated as often as necessary. I highly
recommend the use of http://www.rtrfoundation.org/

Mordecai -> Marcus -> Max (plus Marks and Marx) #general

used "Markus"! >>

This is a very common progression. In the 19th century, boys with
the Hebrew name Mordecai were frequently given the "civil" name of
Mark/Marcus (whence also the family names Marks and Marx). In the
early 20th century, there was a tendency to replace the name Marcus
with Max. I guess Murray, Marvin, Morton and Montmorency are all in
line to produce new "M" names.

I have a cousin born in the UK in the 11930s and now resident in
Germany, who currently uses all three more-or-less simultaneously.

Canada to North Dakota: You may hold the golden key.
...
Do you know of where I might find a listing of ships carrying
passengers >from through Canada to a North Dakota port in 1880 or
thereabouts?
You could take a boat up the Red River >from Winnipeg, but how would
you get to Winnipeg? The most likely way for an immigrant to get
to North Dakota through Canada around 1880 might be to take a ship
through the Great Lakes >from southern Ontario to Duluth, and then a
train to North Dakota. Or possibly he originally settled in Western
Canada and later moved to North Dakota.
