Another Ladino question #sephardic

Kormans
 

Is "ido" a surname suffix in Ladino?

I have a family name of Bergida that is said to have originally been a
Sephardic name of Berguido. I have found that surname used in Spain as early
as the 1700s, but not necessarily connected with conversos.

Thank you

Dear Lois,

It would be very helpful for your search if you could locate your home
community.

Have you searched for your ancestors immigrant ships manifest on the Ellis
Island or Castle Garden data bases. Do you have an exact or approximate
arrival time? Did they come to NY? (other than the English and Autalians)?

A couple of clues wouldn't hurt.

What does "koopvr" mean? #general

I have an ancestor (female, a widow) listed in the "Lijst van
gealimenteerde..." the poor Ashkenazic Jews receiving welfare in Amsterdam
in 1809. Her occupation is listed as "koopvr." What can that mean?

Searching for descendants of David BACHARACH (aka David BARNUM),
brother of Simon and Nathan BARNUM of Kansas. Born 1834, Fellheim,
Swabia (Bavaria), died 1894, Philadelphia. My husband is a descendant
of Nathan BARNUM and I have some photos that I'd like help
identifying. I think one might be of David.

Can one use the name Lippman as first name? #general

hotmail Dleizer <dleizer@...>
 

Dear Genners,

I’ve have an old photo of my ggggrandfather gravestone which I believed was
located in the Lenin Cemetery in Belarus (the man died in 1908 and was born
at approximately 1808 or even earlier). The inscription (in Hebrew) stated
that his name was Yechiel Temkin the son of Lippman ha-kohen

I am aware of the name Lippman used as a surname and I am well aware that
the name Lippa (or similar spelling) is a common first name (each one of the
branches of that family had at least one or two Lippas presumably named
after the original Lippman )

Is it possible for the name Lippman to be used as first name?

Can anybody explain the meaning of the name?

Can it be related to the lip? i.e the man with the big lip etc?

The gravestone inscription also mention that Yehiel was an old man

Can anybody tell me what would have been considered “old” in Belarus of that era?

We have information suggesting that the man may have lived to more than 108.
Is that possible?

Cheers

Re: MANDELIK family #austria-czech

Lewis Grimm <lewisinnyc@...>
 

Hi Celia and Michael,

My great-aunt was Josefina (aka Pepi) Grimm. She was
born on February 24, 1880, in Koloredov (now Zvole,
near Zabreh) in Moravia. She married Max Mandelik, a
shopkeeper and the son of Jetti and Josef.

Max was born on December 26, 1876, in Jakubschowitz
(now Jakubcovice), near Troppau (now Opava), also in
Moravia.

They both moved to Vienna, Austria, and eventually
were killed in the Holocaust. I understand that they
had three children, Olga, Hilda and Paul. I don't
know what happened to Olga, except that she and Hilda
lived in England (Kenton Harrow, Middlesex). Hilda
became Kennedy (formerly Koenigsberg) and had a
daughter, Susan, who moved to Israel. Paul married a
Madie and also moved to Israel, where he had a son,
Reuven (Bobby) Mandelik. I understand that Paul died
in his 50s. I am trying (so far unsuccessfully) to
get back in touch with Susan Kennedy and Reuven/Bobby
Mandelik.

I hope this helps. Let me know if any of your
research might be relevant.

Cheers,
Lewis

Tel Aviv phone book #germany

Hanna Grossman <hannakg@...>
 

In a recent conversation a distant cousin reported that a Lutheran ?
Bishop had told her (probably about 15 years ago) that there were
"dozens" of Kirchheimers listed in the Tel Aviv phone book. She
found one--in Hebrew--which did not help her, or me.
Could someone look in a current Tel Aviv phone book and provide some
information as to the presence or absence of this name?
I have been working on it for a decade, and while I know of relatives
in Israel, I have never heard of any who were named Kirchheimer. Thank you.
