The meaning of Wallach surname #ukraine

Marilyn Levinson
 

Dear researchers
I am researching the origin of the name Wallach. I understand it means
a foreigner or immigrant who speaks a romance language.
When these romance speaking people entered Germanic speaking lands they
were given the Germanic name Vlachs. Does this mean that my ancestors
traveled >from present day Italy or France and then east to Germany? Or
have I misunderstood the derivation of the name? I have had a DNA test
and I am 98 percent Ashkenazic but am not identified as having any
Sephardic DNA. Thank you for your help.

Prince Alexis Baranova #general

Shneor Morosow <shneor.m@...>
 

Dear fellow researchers,

I'm seeking help in identifying a Prince Alexis Baranova. According to
a 1911 New York Times article, he was an uncle of Gregor A Gaitz-Hocky,
a Russian violinist who I suspect was a distant relative of mine.

Here's a quote >from the article for some context: "While leading the
orchestra at the Knickerbocker Hotel, three years ago, he created a
small stir by being recognized by his uncle, Prince Baronova, who was on
a world tour looking for his lost nephew. His uncle wanted him to return
to Russia, it was said, promising him an inheritance if he entered the
Imperial Army, but the violinist refused."

Is it possibly the person in this Wikipedia article
(https://ru.wikipedia.org/wiki/%D0%91%D0%B0%D1%80%D0%B0%D0%BD%D0%BE%D0%B2,_%D0%90%D0%BB%D0%B5%D0%BA%D1%81%D0%B5%D0%B9_%D0%93%D1%80%D0%B8%D0%B3%D0%BE%D1%80%D1%8C%D0%B5%D0%B2%D0%B8%D1%87)?
[or http://tinyurl.com/ycr4969c --Mod.]

According to another source, Gaitz-Hocky's mother was a Polish countess.

Any thoughts or tips, would be appreciated.

Best,

Anyone visiting East Ham Jewish cemetery?? #unitedkingdom

Beverley Davis
 

I would be extremely grateful if someone could kindly take photographs
of the circa1940s graves of my uncle and his wife at the East Ham Jewish
cemetery for me. I have the exact locations, but do not know if either of
them have an existing gravestone (but I'm hoping that they do!)

Please reply privately to avoid duplication of effort, and so that I can
provide the details.
