Re: SCHMULOWITZ #latvia

My grandfather's sister Zlata's first husband was Jacob (son of Eliokum)
SHMULOVITCH. He was born c 1865 and died in 1898 in Riga. The marriage
took place in Riga but, as Zlata was born in Mitau, Jacob could well have
come >from there also. There were no children - he died only two months
after the wedding, cause unknown, and I have no further details of him
(these were obtained >from the Latvian Archives) but thought this might be
of interest. Zlata's maiden name was JOEL and her second husband was Nochum
HIRSCHBERG.

Best wishes,

SMALLOVICH and the soundex came up with SCHMUELOWITZ. We may have also had
a relative with the surname KATZIN. Thoughts anyone? Again, I appreciate

Martin and Wolfgang HIRcSH, Berlin #germany

Elsebeth Paikin
 

Dear all,

I know that the name HIRSCH (and variations of spellings of the name) is
very common. All the same I would like to ask if anyone know anything about
the ancestors or descendants of:

HIRSCH - a "furniture architect" born in 1887 in "Rogasen", moved to Berlin,
where his son Wolfgang Werner HIRSCH was born in 1930.

Also information about "Rogasen" (which I guess must be Rosg=E4sen!? near Berlin)
and/or what records exist and where to find them. Best regards,

Seeking EICHENWALD from Wunnenberg #germany

david harford <harford@...>
 

The German side of my family had a lot of information about many of our
ancestors, but I have run up against a roadblock on one branch.

My great-grandmother was Pauline EICHENGRUN nee EICHENWALD, born in Wunnenberg,
Westphalia, Nov 22, 1875 or 6. She had a brother, Heinemann (or Hineman),
and a sister, Johana. I believe her mother was Julie or Julia STERN, and her
father was Abraham EICHENWALD. Heinemann came to the US, had a daughter - Hilde,
and a son.

I believe Johana went to Switzerland. Her children were Wilhelmina, and Philip,
who was a chemist, and lived in Switzerland. Wilhelmina (Willi or Minchen)
married John STEVENS, in England. I think they had 3 children. I believe a
daughter may be Sylvia, and she lives in Switzerland and Israel. Does this sound
familiar to anyone?

Thanks - Lois Harford, San Diego, CA <harford@cox.net>

Hi Stan,

What is the third word?

This is an acronym of the words: Morenu HaRav that means: Our teacher,
Rabbi...
This acronym precedes a given name and a surname (if any).
You may well be right. But what warrant have we for assuming that this
is an acronym? The query says nothing about "gershayim" (like double
quote) which would indicate that, but calls out three letters. The
questioner seems to be likely to recognize gershayim if present, or
at least to note its presence.

If there was gershayim before the "heh", then we have an acronym. If the
final word is three letters only, we do not.
-------->
After having deciphered more than 25,000 Hebrew tombstone inscriptions, of
Ashkenazim as well as Sephardim, I can assure you that "gershayim" (like
double quote) are *never* engraved on tombstone, certainly in till the
beginning of 20th century.
Do you know the book of Hebrew acronyms by Shmuel Ashkenazi and Dov Yarden
(Jerusalem,Kiriat Sefer, 1991)? Not any of the hundreds of acronyms covering
the 599 pages has any "geresh" (quote) or "girshayim" (double quote).

Shalom,
