Max GANS-SCHILLER - Question about Hyphenated name #general

rickglaser@...
 

My great-grandfather was Max Gans-Schiller. >from lovosice in Bohemia.
His parents were Jakob Gans and Fanni Schiller.His 4 children
(including my grandmother) had the last name of Schiller.There are
some family stories that I have heard >from some cousins that Max
took the double name because he was adopted by his uncle (presumably his
mother's brother). Other stories are that he was adopted by a stranger.
But we have no evidence of such an adoption.I am thinking that he took
the double name and then had the children named Schiller as a way of
preserving the Schiller name. Perhaps his mother, Fanni, had no brothers,
and the Schiller family wanted the name preserved.

In the badatelna record for his marriage in 1885, he is listed as Max Gans.
On the Gans side, there would be continuity. Max had a brother
Ludwig Gans, who had at least one son.

Has anyone come across similar situations of hyphenated names and
then taking on the second name for the next generation?

Are there any other possible explanations?

Thanks in advance,

Rick Glaser

Maiden name variations #general

Marilyn Robinson
 

I had found that my great aunt's maiden name was usually listed
as Esther Levine. However, in the birth record of one of her children,
it was listed as Esther Michalowitz. I didn't understand why her father's
patronymic was used as her maiden name & no one could tell me why
(her grandfather was Michal). I accidentally came across the answer in
Jewishgen: In the earliest records ( before surnames were in general use,
in the mid-1820's), her father's patronymic (her paternal grandfather's
given name) might be used.
Regards,
Marilyn Robinson

Burial practices in Poland circa 1901 #general

Allen Kurtz
 

Fellow researchers,

Before I post this question on discussion boards for Warsaw or Poland,
I thought I'd ask it here.

My great grandfather, Meir Tsvi Ferszt, died in Gombin/Gabin, Poland
in 1901. He was buried, however, in Okopowa Cemetery in Warsaw.
Gombin/Gabin and Warsaw are approximately 55 miles (88 km) apart.
Although the Ferszt family appears to have gone back and forth between
Gombin/Gabin and Warsaw on multiples occasions (some of Meir's
children were born in Gombin, others in Warsaw), his 1901 death record
clearly gives a street address in Gombin.

My question is: was the transfer of bodies between locations common? I
would assume that it took at least three days to transfer the body by
horse and wagon. Any insights you might have would be much
appreciated.

Sincerely,

Allen Kurtz

Infant Death in 1909 London #general

Stewart Bernstein
 

If a three day year old Jewish child died in London in 1909, would the
child have a traditional burial? During that period, would any burial
documents have been necessary, and if so, would the documents be found
in a City, County, or National Archive? I have the birth and death
certificates in my possession.
