Mt. Hebron cemetery, Queens, on-line info. #general

Hanna Grossman <hannakg@...>
 

I have found grave information on two cousins buried at Mt. Hebron,
thru Find A Grave. I have been unable to find out elsewhere if
these men were ever married and wonder whether it is possible,
on-line, to get more information on adjacent graves using the
section etc. numbers that Find A Grave gives, which might produce
evidence of wives or children.

Re: Help with a Hungarian first name #general

Roger Lustig
 

John:
According to Google Translate, "Farkas" is the Hungarian word for
"wolf." "Wolf" was a kinnui (nickname) for Ze'ev (Hebrew for wolf) and
thus for Benjamin, whom his father compared to a wolf.

"Farkas" is also a common Hungarian surname. Also, Hungarians generally
write their names with the surname first, so Farkas Isaac might be
someone we'd call Isaac Farkas, depending on the source you found.

Origin of certain popular Jewish given names in the USA - Seymour, Irving, Jerome #germany

Michael Marx <mhmarx@...>
 

The given names Seymour, Irving, and Jerome became popular among American Jews
even though they were never popular among Americans generally nor do
they appear to have any Jewish associations. Is there an explanation for this?

ENGLAENDER & FRIEDLAENDER families - Berlin #germany

Garden Hill <gardenhill@...>
 

Good morning everyone.

I wrote some months back requesting ideas and advice with my research based
upon the SELIGMANN /ENGLAENDER family of Elberfeld / Barmen, in the North
Rhine-Westphalia region of Germany. The response >from members of the GerSig
group was very positive and enlightening, with many suggestions regarding
locations of relevant material and contacts. I am very grateful for this
help, and I am making some progress, particularly with the SELIGMANN ancestors.

I am hoping that someone may have information about the descendants of IDA
ENGLAENDER, born Elberfeld 1841, married name IDA FRIEDLANDER / FRIEDLAENDER
(the name of her husband is unknown). She died in her apartment, Bamberger Strasse
57, Berlin Schonenberg, 23.05.1912. She shared this apartment with her mother
REGINE (SELIGMANN) ENGLAENDER, died 11.01.1909. Both women were widows.

Ida FRIEDLAeNDER may have had a son named WILFRIED , a dentist
from Charlottenburg, Nettlebeckstrasse 6. She may have had a son-in-law
named JOSEF TUSCHHOFF >from Charlottenburg, Nettlebeckstrasse 26.

I am hoping that someone might know something of this family.

Although the ENGLAENDER family was Jewish, and I believe the FRIEDLAENDER
family also, I was very surprised to note that both Regine ENGLAENDER
and Ida Friedlander were listed as Protestant on their Death registrations.

Best wishes, and again many thanks for such a positive and supportive response,
