I am a direct 17th generation descendant of HaRav Shlomo Luria zt"l
[1510-1573] of Ostroh and Lublin in Poland. He writes in his magnum opus,
"Yam Shel Shlomo" (Tractate Gitin, Chap. 4, Section 26), that his
grandfather HaRav Menachem Tziyon had a son. HaRav Menachem Tziyon's father
was called Meir and his father-in-law was called Uri. HaRav Menachem Tziyon
and his wife were in a disagreement after whose father the son should be
named. They settled on a compromise. Since both Meir and Uri mean "light",
they decided to manufacture the name "Shnei'or that means "two lights".

HaRav Moshe Sofer zt"l [1762-1839] of Frankfurt, Germany and
Pressburg, Slovakia quotes Rav Luria in his responsa (Vol. 4 (Even HaEzer
Vol. 2) Section 18) and explains that at the time it was very uncommon to
give a child two names. Hence the need for such a hybrid name.

Coming >from such eminent world-famous Talmudic scholars, it is
extremely dismissive to call this a "folk etymology misinterpretation".

It is possible that this difficulty in deciding what to name the
child occurred earlier in history as well and that Shnei'or was used as a
hybrid, for we find the eminent Tosafist of Evreaux, France called Rabbeinu
Shnei'or.

Re: JewishGen.org and The Museum of the Jewish People Announce A Strategic Partnership #usa

Barbara Algaze
 

Thank you to Avraham Groll, Jewish Gen, and the Museum of the Jewish People
for this amazing development.
I do have a few questions about getting to be a part of this database.

1) How will we submit our family tree to the database?
Upload it to the Jewish Gen Family Tree of the Jewish People?
Upload it to the website of The Museum of the Jewish People at Beit
Hatfutsot?
Submit the information via a flash drive?

2) How much of our tree will be available to other researchers?
Birth/Marriage/Death information?
Our notes for each individual?
Living people as well as deceased people?
Alternative names for individuals (old world names vs. American names)?
Census data? Passenger arrival data? Burial location?

Please share more details about this wonderful development as they become
available. Thank you,

Barbara Algaze, Los Angeles, California Algaze3@...

You are a role model for the rest of us.

May you have a total of 120 healthy and active years.

Re: Alexander [and traditionally related given names] #germany

Eva Lawrence
 

I held back posting this because in the matter of kinui, I'm still a
learner. But I do have good grounding in Ivrit, and I know that the
female name Aliza means 'sweet girl'. So Alexander, as spoken, would
have the connotation of sweet (ie suess) in Hebrew too.

Re: 1,267 Names starting with M .... have been indexed. [Thank you Peter Lande!] #germany

Irene Peters <iupfamilyresearch@...>
 

Dear Peter,

First off, happy birthday! Secondly, I would like to take that
opportunity to thank you once again for the help you have given me
over the years. Thanks to you, I was able to find not one but two
relatives who otherwise might have remained lost to the Holocaust -
Margarete Schiff and Rudolf Jaffe. To this day, whenever I come across
their names in my tree, I also think of you.

As a small way of giving back, I participated in your project for the
1933 German Jews Database a few years ago, and hopefully was able to
contribute just a little bit to putting together information for
others who are still trying to find their loved ones or attempting to
connect to their family history before and during the Shoah.

Thanks again, Peter. You helped so many people through your work, I am
sure a lot of them are joining me in wishing you a very happy 86th
birthday!

Kind regards,

Irene Peters, Berlin, Germany, @Melu
