Chinye vs Schachna #general

Paul NMN B
 

On a 1905 passenger manifest,Chinye AGATER entered Ellis Island and was
subsequently deported for the Hernia he had. The manifest is very clearly written
and there can be no mistake as to the name. The name Chinye never appears in the
family again.

On other data collected >from Polish archives, the name Schachna appears a number
of times through out the generations.

Has anyone ever heard of the name Chinye? Could it be a nickname for
Schachna?

Thanks

What is a common translation >from the (Polish) name Szarlota? I have the
Hebrew / Yiddish name of Sheva. Does that make sense?

Name Herszko #general

Mike Glazer <glazer@...>
 

Can someone tell me if the names Herszko and Yehushe are related by any chance? I
have found a photo with the name Yehushe Glazer. But I also had a relative called
Herszko Glazer; so I need to know if they could be the same.

Re: Norm Tillman #general

Sally Bruckheimer <sallybru@...>
 

I am sad to tell genners, but the former head of the Albany Jewish Genealogical
Society, Norman Tillman, has passed away. I met him online, discussing things
genealogical, and when I went to Albany for a short time, Norm and his wife,
Sally, welcomed me with open arms. Norm had ancestors >from Raczki as I had, but
we never found any connection (Raczki was a fairly big city on the border of
Russia and Prussia) - and that disappointed me because I wanted them to be real
cousins not just good friends.

When I first met them, Norm was getting over knee-replacement surgery, but that
didn't heal, and things got worse. For the past few years, he had gone through
some of serious ailments and recently he lost his battle; so he had been ill all
the years I knew him, but we met even after I left Albany for other work - with
him hobbling on crutches at times, but still welcoming me warmly.

I will miss him, and I'm sure all the Albany area genealogists, and those in the
wider community who knew Norm will miss him as well.

Sally did not initially think about notifying everyone, but I am sure that there
are some out there who would want to know. If you want to contact Sally, please
send email to me and I will forward the mail, as I am not sure she would want her
email address to be published.

Dear Cousins,

Does anyone have relatives >from Mironim, a village about 11 miles NNW of Slonim
at; 52.57 25.26? I can't find anything about it on Shtetl Links or when I type the
name in "Search this website."

Dear Friends

I have posted on ViewMate a copy of an 1874 birth document relating to
my great grandmother Estera Ita RZEPKA >from Nowy Dwor which I received
from the the Grodzisk Mazowiecki archives (via JRI-Poland).
Can anyone translate this for me please - I understand that it's written
in Russian (although I might be wrong on that).
The address is http://data.jewishgen.org/viewmate/toview.html and the
file is VM6355.

The direct address is

This is the first time I have used ViewMAte, so I hope I've done it
correctly.

If anyone can help, please would you reply to me privately, and I thank
you in anticipation.

Kind regards

Re: Nisel & Notel #lithuania

WWW
 

Nisel and Notel are probably the same name. The Hebrew letter Tav would
have been pronounced like an "S" in the dialect at the time. I have an
example in my own family tree, My great-great- grandfather Nosson Wolpert
would have had his name spelled Nun-Tav-Nun (looking like Natan/Nathan)
but the proununciation would have the Tav sound like an S.

For Carla Montie,
I checked in the 1808 and 1851 censuses of Alsace (Haut-Rhin and Bas-Rhin).
There is no Jews holding the names FARMER, FURMAGER, or FERMAGER.
