Re Shneur:
There is also a story that he was named Shene Or (Two lights) in honor of
two ancestors, one Me'ir and one Uri.

According to Beider the origin of this name is the
Jewish variation on the Latin Senor which might be
translated as elder or master. It apparently can be an
honorific especially as applied to a founder of the
Lubavitscher dynasty.I note with barely suppressed
pride that my surname is a kinnui of Schneur.

WEBER ("veber") family name sources? #general

Ran Weber <ranweb@...>
 

Hi!

My name is Ran Weber, I live in Israel. My father's family is coming from
suzawa, bukovina, romania
My father's name is Eliahu/Erwin, and his father's name was Osvald Weber and
his wife was - Olga Weber.

I am searching for the sources of the name since some one told me that it is
possible this wasn't my original family name and since my family isn't
religious for around 100 years I have no connection with the past.
(I don't even know if I am Israel, Levi or Cohen...)

any clues?


Marriages in Palestine c1936 #general

Basil Samuels
 

Dear Fellow Genealogists,

I am trying to find out where I can obtain a marriage certificate for a
couple who married in Palestine around 1936. Does anyone know where I should
ask?

Would they be in England as they administered Palestine then or would they
have been handed over/left behind when Israel gained her independence?

Translation Assistance Needed #general

Ellen Graham <elleng@...>
 

Today, I received 5 death certificates >from Warsaw that were found as a
result of the wonderful work being done by the JRI project. I tried to
translate the text in these records, initially thinking they were written in
Polish. It appears, through the notes concerning these records on the JRI
page, that they were actually written in Russian. Unfortunately, I cannot
seem to recognize the scripted characters well enough to convert them into
words, thus the Russian to English and Polish to English translation tools
are not working for me.

Would any of you be willing to take a look at one of these or suggest an
inexpensive service that can translate the information for me ? It would
very much be appreciated.

On another note, I'd like to share with everyone that I mailed the order
form for these records on February 16th and three weeks later the copies
were in my hands. This is the fastest turnaround time for any records I have
ever ordered, including those >from the NY archives in which I actually
provided microfiche reel numbers and certificate numbers. Wow !!!

Thanks to all,

Ellen Nadaner Graham
