Fw: Name Changes in the UK #unitedkingdom

Sharon <shouav@...>
 

Hi Listers

Just to add my two cents to this discussion, I actually found in the census
that my ggrandparents, were listed as 'Spitalsy' >from Russia, which we
presume was the original name >from Polish/Russian/Lithuanian (still not sure
where) and the family later changed it to Allen, however I found in the
census the name Spitallen which is also a Polish/Russian/Lithuanian name!!!
My father and his cousin, whose birth certificates are in the name of
Spitalsky and both changed their names to Allen later on, knew of this
change, what I can't work out is why, how and where these changes happened,
very likely knowing what beaurocrats are like, that they thought Spitallen
was easier, who knows! Be nice to hear >from the actual authorities as to
what went on then. By the way the beaurocrats were just as bad in Israel,
when my father in law arrived in this country, he could not speak Hebrew and
when asked for his surname, he thought they were asking for his father's
name, so his surname became Avraham >from Bachar!!! I would imagine that
this was very, possibly still is, easily done!

R' Shmuel KAGAN #rabbinic

Shulamit <singingsandy2004@...>
 

Wile searching the all Lithuanian data base for records of my great
great grandparents, Shmuel Israel and Chava GOLDSTEIN, I came across
a most unusual record >from Dotnuva, Lithuania. A Chava GOLSTEIN
daughter of Meir is listed as living with a Shmuel son of Mendel and
Shmuel's wife Leah KAGAN along with 6 other women. All of them
including the KAGANs are about 18-32 years old. All of the women are
listed as relatives of the KAGANs.

KAGAN Shmuil; Father: Mendel; Head of Household; 25;
KAGAN Leya; Wife; 24

GOLSHTEYN Khava; Father: Meyer; Relative; 25
LEVIN Leya; Father: Ekom; Relative; 24
LEVINSHTEYN Fruma; Father: Itsko; Relative; 24
LEVINSHTEYN Enta; Father: Movsha; Relative; 23
PODLYAS Ryvka; Father: Leyba; Relative; 21
ZEL Elko; Father: Berel; Relative; 32
ZEL Sheyna; Father: Berel; Relative 18

Another listing for Dotnuva shows the following children for Shmuel
and Leah KAGAN:

KAGAN Shmuel Mendel; Head of Household; 49
KAGAN Leah; Wife; 48
KAGAN Chaim Iosel; Father: Shmuel; Son; 9
KAGAN Chaya; Father: Shmuel; Daughter; 13
KAGAN Movsha Leyb; Father: Shmuel; Son; 2
KAGAN Sora; Father: Shmuel; Daughter; 11
KAGAN Tauba; Father: Shmuel; Daughter; 22

Can this Shmuel KAGAN be Rabbi Shmuel KAGAN who was the Mashgiach
Mussar Ruchani (Mussar spiritual head) at the Slobodka yeshiva in
Lithuania? Was Rabbi KAGAN's wife's named Leah and was his father
named Mendel? Were his children those mentioned above? Neither
posting gives Leah's father's first name (unfortunately) or her
maiden name.

Could these 7 women possibly have been wives of yeshiva students or
'perushim' and/or men who were hiding >from conscription in the
Russian army? We know that the yeshivot were full of men dodging
the draft into the Russian army. The ukase of 1827 whereby Jews had
to serve 31 years in the Russian army, some as young as age 9-12,
only ended in 1855 with the death of Czar Nicholas I. The new czar
Alexander II abolished this law which is also why many Jews named
sons Alexander and mourned his assassination. Most likely these
women were all married as it would have been highly unusual at this
time 1851 for women of this age to have been unmarried. Chava
GOLSTEIN matches name and age of my great great grandmother.

I will be greatful to anyone who recognizes any of the names here
and/or knows answers to my questions.

Re: NAME CHANGES #unitedkingdom

Jjlaca@...
 

Josie's stories are consistent with my family's story.

My grandfather came to Leeds in 1891 >from Kolo, Poland. In the old country,
the family name was Kuczynski. Before he left Poland, his brother Simon
told him that he had taken the surname Joseph in Leeds and that he should use
the same name. Although the Polish records, Birth and Marriage, do not contain
the middle name Joseph (which is where we suspected the name was obtained),
his brother's tombstone reads "Shimon Yosef."

As I understand it, the ship manifests were written by the ship captain or
one of his crew. The question is how would an immigrant have been able to
give a name that was not the name on his/her travel documents? Were they not
vigilant about these details? Did teh immigration folks just accept the
manifests at face value?

Where was my family prior to 1901 #unitedkingdom

Alan Rackow
 

The 1901 UK census shows my Rackow grandparents and their children, and my
then 65-year-old great-grandfather living with them. The two eldest
children are shown as having been born in Russia, but the next one, who was
10 at the time of the census, and the younger ones, are all shown as
English-born. Therefore I assume that the family was living in London in
1891, and even earlier. My question therefore - how can I locate them
inasmuch as I couldn't find them in the 1891 census? I know that my
great-grandmother had died earlier but I have no idea where or when, and I
know that my ggf had remarried, but again I know not when. Can anyone help?

Levi J. ABRAHAMS - Amsterdam to US 1801 #usa

Marsh <marshcat@...>
 

Levi J. ABRAHAMS came to Philadelphia in 1801. He then went to Savannah, GA
and was naturalized in 1807. He listed his place of birth as Amsterdam,
Holland. He then moved to Charleston, SC and married Elizabeth MATTUCE
PREVOST (non-Jewish) and had a large family.

Levi is listed as a member of the very early Reform movement in Charleston
(we speculate because he had married outside the faith and wanted to
participate in Temple services), but died in Charleston in April 1830. We
have a funeral notice >from the Charleston newspaper, but have not found a
place of burial. His wife was buried at St. Phillip's Episcopal Church in
Charleston. Several of the children, my ancestor included, were sent to the
Charleston Orphan House, and we have no Jewish tradition in our family.

There is confusion because there was a Levi Abrahams in Savannah earlier,
and another Levi Abrahams born in Virginia, son of Solomon ABRAHAMS.
Neither of these appear to be my Levi J. ABRAHAMS. My ancestor was born
about 1777 in Amsterdam, and died in 1830 in Charleston, SC.

DNA testing has found several close matches at the 67-marker level. They
are families >from the Ukraine. Obviously, some family members went one way,
and some another. I'd love to find more information about the family of Levi.

Bela-Beile BRANDEIS, b. Fuerth after 1785 #germany

MBernet@...
 

Bela-Beile BRANDEIS was the youngest child of Samuel b Israel BRANDEIS of
Fuerth and his wife, Frumet b. R' Ascher EMSEL (?) district rabbi of Grabfeld
district with a seat in Burgpreppach. Judging by the dates of her 7 siblings,
she could not have been born before 1785.

She married Jona b Menachem Koenigshofer in Ermreuth (Upper Franconia, near
Erlangen), who was possibly >from Bad Koenigshofen-in-Grabfeld (her mother's
childhood neighborhood), and probably considerably older than she. She was
widowed in 1815 and disappeared >from Ermreuth, leaving her son, my mgggf b.1806,
in the care of that town's Jewish school teacher.

Thanks to a query she posted here a couple of days ago by Ruth Fenichel
Kornbluth, I have just received >from Ruth a copy of the hand-written tree of
this Brandeis branch prepared by Charles Stanton and now in the LBI collection.
This is helping to fill in one of the essential links in my family tree; thank
you Ruth, Charles Stanton and the LBI. I'd appreciate any help in finding
out what happened to Bela after she was widowed.

Stanton cites a will by her oldest brother, Joseph, who died in 1856,
leaving a bequest to his sister "Bela Koenigshofer in Ermreuth."
She had then been a widow for 41 years and was long gone >from Ermreuth.
She was only a girl of 30 when she was widowed and I'm more than a
little worried for her.

Re. Inscriptions on other graves in Hessen - Jewish tradition questions #germany

Prof. G. L. Esterson <jerry@...>
 

Justin Levy posted on the GerSIG digest as follows:

"I have the list of burials in the large cemetery in Kassel (Bettenhausen).
Many of the gravestones indicate that individuals had most unexpected
composite names, e.g. Moshe Uri Shraga ben Abraham or
Baruch Daniel Shmuel ben Moshe Yehuda.

Dr. Jona Schellekens, the accomplished Jewish genealogist and senior
lecturer at the Hebrew University, noted a similar pattern amongst
the Dutch Ashkenazi Jewry. His explanation is:

..sometimes true middle names or composite first names do occur.
These names often derive >from the custom of 'changing' the name
of a person who is ill. Usually a new name is added to the original
first name instead of replacing it (Kaganoff 1977, p. 102).
...People who were seriously ill more than once, may have undergone this
process more than once (Luria 1861/62, folio 21)..."

In addition to changing names as described by Dr. Schellekens, there was
also the custom of giving the sick person one of a small group of special
names which expressed a desire for life, for example. Neither of the above
two multiple given names seems to fall into this category.

It should also be kept in mind that multiple given names were also commonly
given to newborns to memorialize one or more dead family members. One
example would be the given name presented by Justin Levy, "Moshe Uri
Shraga", which is composed of the Hebrew name "Moshe" and the Hebrew double
name "Uri Shraga" (also, Urshraga). The name Uri Shraga is a double name
composed of the Hebrew name "Uri" and the Yiddish name "Shraga". The
Yiddish name "Shraga" was sometimes used as a stand-alone name in Germany
and other countries, and sometimes as a Yiddish kinui for the name Uri.

The other name presented by Justin Levy, "Baruch Daniel Shmuel", is a
triple of three unrelated Hebrew names, "Baruch", "Daniel", and "Shmuel",
having no relation to one another.

In these two examples, there are two main possibilities: the multiple
given names were given to memorialize only one deceased ancestor, or that
they were given to memorialize two or three deceased ancestors.
