The name Moshko: does this equate to Morris? #general

Daniel Feldman <df8@...>
 

Dear Genners,

Does anyone know if a relative named "Moshko" or
"Maschko" in documents such as passenger manifests,
might also be known as Morris? I am aware that
men had as many as 3 names- Yiddish, Hebrew, and for
lack of a better term-secular. This knowledge may help
me understand who begot whom in my family.

Thanks.

jerszys and herberts #general

Deborah Wiener <debw@...>
 

Hi all genners
my late father Ascher WIENER was in Japan for 6
months-march-September of 1941. I had some correspondence
translated and discovered he was trading in
"jersys and herberts". Does anyone have any idea
as to what they might be?
thanks

ViewMate-VM3124 Janos Eugen Weisz #general

Susanna Vendel <svendel@...>
 

As a continuation of my posting of yesterday,
trying to trace Rhona and Kenneth Weisz, the
descendants of Janos Eugen Weisz I would like to
ask you to have a look at
(http://data.jewishgen.org/viewmate)
file - VM3124. The picture represents Janos and his wife.
The photo is taken in 1947 and they seem to
be ca 25-28 years old. Somebody of their generation
( born ca 1920-22) might recognize them?

My hope is that somebody will recognize the names and
places and will know where Rhona and Kenneth live today.
They should be around 50-60 years old.
Any information is welcome. Please contact me privately.

VM3127: Inscription in Ring #general

Robert Pollack <rmpollack@...>
 

Thank you to everyone who tried valiantly to read
the inscription on my ring despite the difficulty
and lack of clarity, and especially to those who
sent me emails with suggestions and guesses.

I've managed to take a clearer picture of the
inscription on the ring, so maybe somebody will
have better luck this time. The link goes to two
images -- the one on the bottom has an increased
contrast for better clarity. Does anybody know
what these marks mean? Is this a language or
some sort of code? Can anybody read it?

http://data.jewishgen.org/viewmate/ALL/viewmateview.asp?key=3127

It's not much clearer than this even on the ring itself --
in fact I have an easier time making it out
through these pictures than on the ring with a
magnifying glass! (The picture was taken by pointing
a digital camera set to close-up through a magnifying
glass and zooming in! It was a real
challenge getting the light and shadow right,
without being blinded by glare. The inscription
is too thin and shallow to get a rubbing or to make
a clay impression, despite my best efforts.)

The top line, >from left to right (though I'm not sure
which way it's supposed to be read), looks to me like
N-U (or N-V), then a Greek (or
Russian?) Gamma, then a K or an Aleph, then a Hebrew Tet,
than a backwards Koff, then another Greek Gamma or a
Vav-Yud (it's not clear even on the ring
itself whether these are two letters or only one).
Then a 1 or an I and a weird P (?). The second line
on the bottom left has two marks I can't
recognize as anything at all, really. Then what might
be an R or a Taurus symbol, then a Lambda or upside-down
Ayin, then 7501 (or maybe
Vav-Samekh-Peh-Lamed?).

Does anybody have any idea what this stuff is?
I think that the ring probably originates in
Argentina or the Ukraine, though I'm not
totally sure.

Thanks again.

Fw: Looking for MORPURGO and VITERBO (Acona, Italy) #general

Carlos Glikson
 

A MORPURGO was active in theater or TV in Argentina.
I´m not looking it up know but the nickname was Ponchi...
Ponchi MORPURGO - and I can't tell the sex based on Ponchi !
(off stage or off camera... an escenographer, if I
recall correctly. Perhaps a camera director - Ponchi
punching the switcher?
It is a memory >from 30? 35? years ago).

There are 2 MORPURGO phones in my nationwide 2001 white
pages CD. If you think there may be a connection to
1845 MORPURGOS in Ancona, Italy, or want to contact and
find out, I´ll be happy to share the contact info privately.
