FERMANN/FURMAN SEARCH #ukraine

ms nodrog
 

I am trying to locate family memebrs of the FERMAN/FURMAN family who
later changed their name to FELDMAN. The members I know of are Fivich,
Pessie (Bessie)Schmeya (Sam) and possibly Chaim (Harry). They lived in
Torchin, Volhynia Gubernia before coming to America and may have been
born in Rozich, Poland. After coming to America they lived in Brooklyn
and Baltimore.

Two FURMANN siblings married two BAITCH (Bajcz)siblings. If you have
any information please e-mail me at msnodrog@yahoo.com.

Thanks in advance,
Hope Gordon

My gf's name was Kusiel and on his headstone is Yekusiel (1868 to 1941). Upon
arrival in 1904 he used the name Carl. He was named after his father who died
shortly before my gf was born. My ggf shared this name with some cousins and I
believe there were others.

Brest Litovsk articles #belarus

Eileen Price <eileen.price@...>
 

Dear SIG member,

In the Digest for Monday, February 17, there was a request for information
about Brest Litovsk.

I would suggest the following three articles that appeared in the On-line
Newsletter several years ago.

Brisk D'Lita: An Historical Review... by Avram Chani

A Town With Four Names: Recollections of life in Poland prior to WWII by Dr.
Samuel H. Chani

Brest Litovsk, an article >from the Jewish Encyclopedia.

Of course there are many more articles about this town, but I think this is
a good way to start.

Hope this helps.

Pisha Paysha Hand Game Remembered #general

Shirley Collier <shirley.collier@...>
 

Hi

I do remember this game although not as Pisha Paysha, although that name
does ring a bell. We called it Cat's Cradle and it was a real favourite.
I played it with my own children but I haven't seen anyone playing it since
then. I have no idea where it originated but I will now do my bit to keep
it alive and show the younger members in the family how to play.

Thanks for the memory.

Re: Pisha Paysha Hand Game Remembered #galicia

Shlomo Wygodny <wygodny@...>
 

Carole,
The game you mentioned is called in Israel "Savta Soreget" (Knitting
Grandmother) and I just showed it to my daughter last week. I think I know
about 7 shapes before you get into a loop of repeating shapes.

- Shlomo

The thread which dealt with the hand game of Yiddish
rhyming, pinching, and tickling brings to mind the game my
grandmother taught us called (phonetically), "pisha
paysha", in which a string is tied, creating a circle. The
circle is tautly placed outside both upright hands which
face each other. Without recalling exactly how, I
remember shapes being created >from the string with a
finger >from each hand, each player taking a turn creating
a new geometric shape while easing the string off the
previous player's hands onto his/her own.

Re: Pisha Paysha Hand Game Remembered #galicia

I thought that Pisha Paysha was a card game, which I played as a child. At
this point, I can't remember how it is played, but I thought it involved
cards and possibly pennies.

Are you referring to "String Figures" similar to the ones on this website,
perhaps? http://personal.riverusers.com/~busybee/main.htm

How does this relate to genealogy? I suspect this game
was known by different names which may identify the
geographic region in which it was played. "Pisha paysha"
was probably played in eastern Galicia, since my
grandmother came >from Drohobycz. If she learned it in her
childhood, then the game was played in the 1890s.
Do any other Genners recall this game? By what name did
you know it? >from what geographic region did those who
played it come?
