symbol of a feather #general

Lin <lin2@...>
 

Hi.

Perhaps someone will be able to help me. I recently received some documents >from
Lippstadt, Germany, including the death noticed published in a local newspaper, for
my great-grandparents. The top of the death notices of my great grandparents
Anschel HUMBERG and Rosa SCHWARZ HUMBERG (published in the local paper "Der
Patriot" in Lippstadt, Germany) are adorned with a feather. They died two years
apart, one in 1928 and the other in 1930. I have never seen a feather used as a
Jewish religious symbol. It certainly has nothing to do with the meaning of their
last names. Does anyone know of a known Jewish or German-Jewish meaning for the
feather?

They were not authors.

Thank you so much.

Sincerely,
Lin Herz

Re: Naming of child #general

Roger Lustig
 

Specifically, the tradition had to do with naming children after dead--and not
living--*ancestors.* Siblings, cousins, etc. were not considered. In the days of
large families, that was probably a good thing; otherwise we'd see more Rehoboams,
Melchisedechs, etc. in our family trees.

Also, it seems that the naming of daughters was not as strictly regulated as it
was for sons. Since the daughters were not circumcised nor likely to be called
to the Torah, their names were not taken as seriously as those of their male
siblings.

This is a big "thank you" to the many members of this SIG who responded
to my request for help in identifying the possible archive for
researching family records for a friend with ancestry in the small town
of Lastovice, Slokavia.
You are a wonderful group!

I will pass all of this excellent information to my friend, and see what
he chooses to do next.

Very likely situation. In my tree we had a matriarch named Brina and in her
grandchildren and beyond we find numerous girls named Beatrice all named for
the same woman. It got funny at cousin meetings or other times when a woman
would come up to you and say you do not know me but I am another Beatrice .....

RE Experience with DCJR website #galicia

In answer to Eric Feintein's question about the DCJR:

I ordered a Birth Act >from DCJR a couple of years ago and was really
happy to receive it. You will be asked to make a donation of your choice
after receipt. I do not believe that they wish to be contacted by phone.
But do persevere and you will receive an answer.

Kind regards,
