I am adding the Hebrew names to a freshly transcribed birth register and I
found some things that puzzle me. One is that every once in a while, not
too often, they have the word "bachur"added after the name of a newborn
boy.

The other thing is added after both the boy's and his father's names at
the same occasion. It consists of three letters, samech-gimel-lamed, with
a little crown drawn above it. The solution to these little "secret" notes
may be a nice addition to the tools of transcribers.

Where are pre-WW1 Franenburg and Rugenwalte? #general

Eva Lawrence
 

My extremely detailed 1938 German atlas doesn't list any place called
Franenburg, but two called Frauenburg, one of which is probably the place
you're looking for. The most likely is on the Baltic coast, just east of
Danzig. Rugenwalde is also a seaside town on the Baltic , near Kolobrzeg
and is now called Darlowo.

Franenburg and Rugenwalte are birth locations of members of my FENCHEL

Can someone tell me where these places were?
