Viewmate: Hebrew translation and interpretation of UK marriage authorisation #general

Mark Michaels
 

Here is the viewmate link. Below are my outstanding questions. Some
have already been answered thank you.

https://www.jewishgen.org/viewmate/responselist.asp?key=71553

1. Translation of the Hebrew Elements please. Just remains the short word after
Rachel's name.

2. The English that looks like 11 yrs what might that mean? Does it say 'tailor'
after that or something else?

3. Rachel's certificate says 'M' what might that mean. Apparently this means
'maiden' ie unmarried.

4. Rachel native of: Shaps R.P. might this be Sierpc often written Shepps. It is
quite close to Mlawa. It was/is certainly Poland but surely too far west to be
Russian Poland. If not Sierpc where else? Answered. Yes in Russian Poland at that
time. Additionally Sierpc and Mlawa the groom's home are only 30 miles apart.

5. This Synagogue marriage was for September, they were married in the register
office in April. Why might that be? The UK synagogue marriage secretary normally
acted as registrar too. The civil certificate does not reference 'rites of Jews' or
similar.

Thank you for any light shed here!

Re: Location name #hungary

tom
 

The closest place name that i can think of is hatvan, in heves megye. (there are also 3 others, in somogy, szilagy and pest-pilis-solt-kiskun.) due to the listserve software, i cannot tell whether you intended to use an inverted exclamation mark (¥) in the place name, or whether that's just the way it is being displayed at my end - in either case, i don't know what that character might be.

i like to use the 1913 gazetteer of hungary at bogardi.com for looking up place names. it works well on partial character strings, and includes "greater hungary" (pre-trianon).

the best way to get help deciphering names/places is to post an image of the page on viewmate, if you can.

A late XIX Century census page at

written as "_¥van_". The archive staff was unable to understand which

abbreviation of a longer name. I turn to you, therefore, wondering
whether anybody can be of help. As far as I can find today, the only

to me very unlikely that it might correspond to the location listed in

February 3 Jewish Genealogy Society of Cleveland Meeting Announcement
Russ Maurer, coordinator of the Vilnius Household Registers Project of the
Lithuanian-Jewish Special Interest Group (LitvakSIG), will recount the
events that led to the introduction of household registration to Vilnius a
century ago at the February 3 meeting of the Jewish Genealogy Society of Cleveland.

Maurer will explain how household registration worked, information which
provides the background necessary to understand these records along with the
unique insights they provide into information about Jews in Vilnius between
the world wars when Poland controlled areas located now in eastern Lithuania
and adjoining Belarus. Some 13,000 household registers contain millions of
lines of detailed data about Vilnius residents and visitors, many of whom
were Jewish. Maurer was the recipient of the Rabbi Malcolm Stern Grant on
behalf of LitvakSIG presented by the International Association of Jewish
Genealogical Societies at the 2018 conference held in Warsaw, Poland. This
year's IAJGS Conference will be held in Cleveland >from July 28 through August 2.
