Re: Naming a son after a brother? #general

Yes, I did state that Mozes, the brother, was alive after the War, and
came to the U.S.

"You don't mention whether Brother Moses was alive or dead when the son was
born (or possibly that has gone over my head). If he was dead, expecially if
he had died without issue, there would be nothing surprising about wishing
to carry his name forward as a memorial. If he was alive, that would seem to
confirm the possibilities I have tried to describe in the paragraph above.
If two people have the same forename, they are not necessarily named for
each other, even in Galicia."

Dear friends,

Can someone fluent in Russian and English please translate this Russian
language marriage record? I'm hoping the bride is the sister of my
great-grandfather. Please reply to my personal e-mail. Thanks very much.

Breast Cancer gene and genealogy #poland

Shelly Crane
 

Dear Fellow Genealogists,

I have been doing genealogy research for many different reasons. One in
particular is to search for relatives who might also have the same genetic
mutation that I've inherited >from my mother: the Breast Cancer-1 gene and
specifically the 185delAG mutation. Breast, ovarian and prostate cancer
are the most likely types of cancer that occur with this gene. It appears
that this common mutation has been found among the Ashkenazi Jewish
population and presumably originated form a single ancestor many moons
ago!

With that said, if you have this specific gene mutation and/or a family
history of these cancers, it would be great to compare notes and perhaps
find our ancestral links,
particularly if we share common surnames...see below.

My maternal relatives lived in the Suwalki-Lomza area of Poland, but who
knows where they originated 200-300 years ago and beyond. Consequently,
I'm posting this in more than one digest.

Please respond privately.

Two new names #general

I've just found my great-grandmother's maiden name so I want to add it to my
list. Maybe I'll get a bite >from one of you. :o)

Ruchl FELDMAN. I have two dobs for her, 1838 and 1857 but I think the
earlier one would be correct. She married David FASS nee FASZ in Tyczyn,
Poland and they came to this country in 1903 to 1905. They had nine
children and all but one came to the USA.

Ruchl had a sister Lea who was David's first wife. She died without issue
and he married her sister as was the custom for Orthodox Jews.

Viewmate 6004/5/6: translations from German or Yiddish #general

Stephanie Weiner <laguna@...>
 

Dear Genners,

I hope you will be kind enough to help with a translation >from 2
postcards sent to Vienna in 1916. I'm not sure whether the language is
German or Yiddish. The back of one of the postcards may be neither of
those languages.

http://data.jewishgen.org/viewmate/VM6004 is the back of a postcard sent
in 1916 >from Oscar Singer in Gleichenberg to Clara Singer in Vienna.


http://data.jewishgen.org/viewmate/VM6005 is the front of that postcard.
There is writing across the top that I hope is sufficiently legible for
translation. The photo is of Oscar's two daughters, Helena and Mathilda.

http://data.jewishgen.org/viewmate/VM6006 is the back of a second
poscard sent by Lusia Singer in Gleichenberg to Clara Singer in Vienna.

Is anyone familiar enough with Vienna to know where Wehlistrasse 220/12
would be located?

Does anyone know of or recognize any of these folks? I believe they were
summering in Gleichenberg, but lived in Drogobych.

Thank you all in advance for your generous assistance.
