Re: Surname Choice Problem #general

tom klein <jewishgen@...>
 

The purpose of any name is to identify an individual. Naming is simpler in
smaller groups and progressively more complex in larger ones.

Prior to the adoption of surnames (the actual date varies >from country to
country), Jewish naming was by patronymic ("Shloime ben Moishe", etc.).
But if that wasn't sufficient (there could be lots of "Shloime ben Moishe"s),
other characteristics (occupation, place of origin, colour, etc.) were added
to differentiate them.

In the case of the example, a better question would be, what did they call
the kids of Leibisch's three first cousins, all of whom were named after zaide
Leibisch (may he rest in peace)? the use of a matronymic (e.g. "Ruthie's kids")
is perfectly logical, either in the case of duplication of names, or perhaps if the
mother was widowed (life expectancy was significantly shorter).

Surnames were not introduced just for the convenience of future genealogists,
but for economic (taxes) and political (military conscription) purposes. (which is
also a reason for complicating surnames, in order to avoid them.) So yes, i think
it's perfectly conceivable that, at some point, two different branches of the same
family would have different surnames.

Kaganoff's book on Names states that the surname RELES means "children of Rele"
with Rele being an affectionate form of Ruth. Fine! But irrelavent to the
problem.

Now the problem! When that name was chosen, let's say by a couple named Leibisch
and Rele (with a pack of kids who had previously just been known in their shtetl
as Leibisch & Rele >from XYZ street with all the kids), what did Leibisch's siblings
do?

Re: Jewish WW2 Red Army Genaral (CHERNYAKHOVSKI) #general

David Colman <davidcolman@...>
 

Some time ago, I searched the online archives of the Toronto Star and found
an article reporting Chernyakhovski's death - it provided some biographical
details. My recollection is quite clear that he WAS Jewish. I see that
those archives are now searchable only for a fee and I did not keep my
notes.

Paul Silverstone replied:

At the last conference there was a Russian Army veteran present with an
exhibit of Soviet army casualties. I asked him about General CHENRYAKHOVSKY
who I understood to have been the highest ranking Jewish officer killed in
the war. He did not think the general was Jewish. I don't remember his
reasoning, but it was based on his innate knowledge of the Soviet military.
He was a colonel-general, equal to our 4-star rank and may have been the
highest ranking Soviet officer killed in action. He was killed in East Prussia
in early 1945.

discussed by the SIG attendees. Perhaps I can arrange to join in by phone

I would like to hear >from anyone who has recently traveled to the
following "Galician" towns in the Ternopil District of Ukraine:

Monasterzyska / Monastyriska
Buzcacz / Buchach,
Potok Zloty / Zoloty Potik
Jazlowiec / Pomortsy

I am especially interested in cemetery or Holocaust memorial
information, records pertaining to these towns, and general trip
impressions/recommendations/photographs that are not already
mentioned in, or linked to, the JewishGen shtetllinks websites or
online yizkor books.

Surnames being researched are: Reider, Sinai, Kwastel

Also, if you have information or stories about these town residents
being "relocated" to Lviv after the devestation of WWI and then
later sent back to their shtetls, or the events surrounding the
"aktions" of WWII in these particular towns, please let me know.

Please respond privately.
