sorry! #general

Devin and Julia Van Zandt (Home) <sonar230@...>
 

Dear Genners,

I apologize for this shot in the dark.

Somebody sent me an email in early-mid April asking for information on
one of "my" families. I cannot find their name or email. So -- could
that person please get back in touch with me. I apologize - my father
had just passed away and I said I'd respond within a week. Of course
I'm convinced we hold the keys to each other's families. Anyway, if
it's you, please contact me again. Thanks!

It's one of these families, though which one I am not sure:
Tuchler, Ratkowska,Bouguslauf, Hirshkowitz, Gottschalk (all of
Germany/France)
Goldstein (Dallas TX or Petrovsk Russia or Pultusk Poland)
Finkelstein (Pultusk) Marks or Warshawsky (London, Varta Poland,
Chicago) Markowitz (Varta Poland or Chicago IL)

If this rings a bell with anybody please get back in touch with me.

Re: "Yankel" - three questions #general

Julia Koszewska <julia_koszewska@...>
 

Yankel is a proper name. as I know it is also used in Romania.
As I know the anglicization of this name could be: Yankie.
but maybe also Ian. I'm not sure. I've heard that this name
Yankel in "christian version" was used sometimes as Jan and
especially its short form: Janek.
Best regards- J.

three older siblings in 1893. His eldest brother was
identified
as "Yankel".

1) Was "Yankel" a proper first name, or was it a nickname?
It's a Yiddish diminutive of the Hebrew name Yaakov.

2) On my great grandfather's death certificate in 1902, his
place of origin was identified as Romania. The ship's
list that the four siblings' names was found on identified
their origin as Russia. Was "Yankel" a name that would
have been used in Romania?
Yes.

3) Does anyone have any ideas as to what would have been
the most likely anglicization of the name "Yankel" after
arrival in America? For example, I had a grandfather
>from Ukraine, born Yacov, who was known as "Jack" once
he'd arrived in the States.
I think Jack is the most likely for Yankel as well, although
almost anything is possible.
