states his name was David Velvel and I had been told that it was David

Dear Rinnah

According to my dictionary a Bottcher (umlaut on the o) is a cooper, which
I believe is someone who makes barrels.

Best wishes

That's right. I speak German fluently. A Böttcher makes barrels.

Re: Surnames in Cuba and South American #general

Daniel Kazez <dkazez@...>
 

The writer of this message has asked me to pass it on to the
group. (She has AOL 6.0, and is unable to post messages herself.)

In Latin America (and Spain) it is customary for children to bear
both the father's and mother's surname. For example, I was Maria
Fernandez Rosales before I married. Women used their married
names as an addendum to their maiden names. My mother was Nilda
Rosales de Fernandez in Cuba (the "de" means literally "of").
When children were born, they would have a compound surname. If
you didn't have the double surname, people knew you were the
product of a relationship outside of marriage. Women were always
very proud of bearing their father's surname besides their
husbands (at least my mother always was). This custom still
abounds in the Spanish-speaking countries. Hope this helps.
Kindest Regards,
:) Maria Krane <MariaKrane@aol.com>

In reply to Martha, I can do Excel, am pretty fluent in Hebrew, and would be
glad to help.

I don't believe there are any specific Latvian areas in the Toronto Jewish
cemeteries, however.

DENMARK - SCANDINAVIA #lithuania

To LITVAK SIG

Denmark SIG might be of interest to you if you have or have had
ancestors or relatives in Denmark.

It might also prove helpful because of the online passenger lists
for emigrants that passed through Denmark. At times the Danish
shipping lines were cheaper than others, and emigrants therefore
chose to go to or via Denmark. All who bought a ticket through
one of the Danish shipping lines agents are in the online searchable
databases of the Danish Emigration Archives:
http://www.emiarch.dk

The Immigration Museum has online searchable database for
1. naturalizations
2. issued work permits
3. persons expelled >from Denmark
the website can be found at:

http://www.immigrantmuseet.dk

Although the name is "Denmark SIG" it is endeavored to cover as far
as I can the other parts of Scandinavia, because the mobility was
very significant. So you might find someone born in Latvia, married
in Sweden, having children born in Norway and later on in Sweden or/
Denmark, living in Denmark and the father working in Sweden, etc.

There is also some information on the Northern part of Germany
(Schleswig-Holstein) because that it belonged to Denmark for a long time.
The first Danish Jews were invited to settled there in 1622!

Many of the members of Denmark SIG are experienced and knowledgeable
genealogists and historians, so if you are in need of help or want
some information, please subscribe to the Denmark SIG discussion
group and post your requests for help or information there.

You can join the Discussion Group of Denmark SIG - as all the other SIGs - by going to JewishGen's webpage:

http://www.jewishgen.org/listserv/sigs.htm

and follow the instructions (be sure to check the box in front of the
SIG you want to subscribe to!!)

But do not write to me personally, regrettably I do not have the
time to help individual researchers, and I don't have time to send
a polite reply either. (I get about 5-10 a day sometimes!).
I haven't even had time for my own research for the past year!

Best wishes for a happy 2001
and for your research

Re: Alytus celebrations... #lithuania

Zalman Latzkovich <zalman@...>
 

Before we even consider the invitation by Mayor of Alytus to join the 420th
birthday of the city, I think it would be appropriate for the Mayor to make
a public appology of the horrible crime that many of the city's Lithuanian
residents commited during WWII - killing of all Jews of the city. Those who
did this weren't the nazis, but Lithuanians -the neighbors, "friends", classmates"...

We'll never forget what has happened, and Lithuania should not forget
either.

Usually one or two postings on the Litvak SIG don't "wrap" around at the
end of the screen. They continue in one loooooooooooooong line, ad

What can be done?

MODERATOR'S NOTE: Occasionally a message comes in to the Digest with lines that are much too long, which results in another "word wrap" problem -- only one word on some lines. I try to remedy that in moderation, which may lead to Yosef Sa'ar's problem. This is the first time we've heard of the problem he reports. If any other subscribers are sharing his problem, please let the Digest know. If there aren't many of you, an adjustment in your e-mail program(s) may solve the problem.
