Hello my Wonderful GerSig members. This is your friendly volunteer
coordinator, once more, searching for prospective indexers of records.
Thank you to all of you who have already offered to volunteer with us.

Projects are underway, ** but do not worry **, we have LOTS more of them.

Just to recap, I am looking for people to index birth, marriage and
death records >from towns in ** what is now ** eastern Germany.
At this time, we are not working on towns which have been incorporated
into Poland or other eastern countries.

** But fear not **, I have TWO other projects that may be of interest
to someone.

The first of these projects is to index resident listings in the
Wuerttemburg area. Some of the towns are as follows: Bad Buchau, Bad
Friedrichshall, Bonfeld, Buttenhausen, Creglingen, Esslingen,
Goeppingen, Haigerloch, Hechingen, Horkheim, Jebenhausen, Laupheim,
and others.

** If you are in any way interested ** please contact me.

The second project requires knowledge of ** French. We need people
to index surname adoption lists >from towns west of the Rhine. Again,
if interested, please contact me.

It is now officially summer, so enjoy it. I hope to see many of you in
Cleveland next month.

Thanks again to our current volunteers and thanks in advance to
prospective ones.

** Remember **, by helping us out in these indexing projects, you are
helping other members of this community. And, who knows what treasures
you may find in the records? They might just be the missing links in
your family tree. All the best,

Solomon LATTER Death in Australia Followup and communication between Australia and Scotland #general

Sandra B Landers <SandraLanders@...>
 

First of all I want to thank everyone who responded to my request on
June 10, 2019 in trying to find out how to obtain a Death Certificate of my
Great-uncle Solomon LATTER who died in New South Wales on 28 Nov 1917 and a
photo of his headstone which I now have. I have personally thanked each
and everyone who took the time to search for me.

I especially want to publicly thank Rodney ELSFELDER for searching beyond my
initial request.

He found out that the Australian Government had a 13 page file on Solomon
LATTER online at NAA.Gov.AU, explaining why my great-uncle was in Australia
while his family was back in Glasgow, Scotland. These documents state that
he went to Australia to live for health reasons because the climate in
Scotland was not good for him. In 1915 he was attempting to become a
naturalized citizen of Australia and was denied because he couldn't prove
how he got to England without a passport or visa when he left Russia. He
died two years later and today I received his Death Certificate stating that
he died in the Sydney Hospital >from Pulmonary Tuberculosis and Tuberculous
Meningitis. He was buried the same day he died.

Now, I would like to know how long it took for this devastating news to
reach his family back in Glasgow and by what means of communication was
used at that time?

Thank you in advance for any help you can give.

Re: Name Malka #general

Herbert Lazerow
 

David Goldman asked about the relationship between the names Malka
and Regina.

I had always supposed that those few Jewish girls bearing the name
Regina actually carried the Hebrew name Malka, and Regina was simply a
translation. Not so sure anymore, having run into several Vivians
whose Hebrew names were not Khaya. Translation may not have been a
common way of deriving the English name. Perhaps they just picked an
English name that they liked, or one that had class because of its
Latin roots.

Alexander Beider's A Dictionary of Ashkenazic Given Names provides
no reference >from Malka to Regina. It also does not show Manya as a
variant on Malka. It does show the name Mane as a relatively
little-used name of unknown origin, possibly a female variant of Man.

Malka is a little tricky also because there are two very similar
names with biblical sources: Mikhle, daughter of Saul and wife of
David, and Milke, daughter of Abraham's brother Haran and later wife
of Abraham's brother Nahor.

Freya/Freda KASSEMOFF nee ?? #latvia

Angie Elfassi
 

Hi,

My father's paternal grandmother Freya/Freda b. 1860, married surname
KASSEMOFF, came >from Rezekne in Latvia c. 1905. Her first child was
born in 1891. The family moved to Leeds, UK c. 1904.

On Latvian Archive documents I have, it says that the family lived
previously in Antolepti, Novo Alexandrov (now Zarasi), Lithuania.

A relative, who has unfortunately since died, told me that she thinks
Freya's maiden surname was SOKOLOV.

from Freya's tombstone d. 24 March 1946 and is buried in Leeds, UK,
it says her father was Michael, another piece added to the puzzle.
My late father's name was Michael.

If anyone has a SOKOLOV or SOKOL or any other combination with SOKOL
in it, with Michael on the tree, b. c. 1840 (if Freya was born 1860),
please contact me.

Alternatively, if anyone has a father Michael and daughter Freya on
their tree, with those approximate above dates, also please contact me.

I have looked through quite a few records on JewishGen but havent found
a SOKOLOV yet with a Michael and Freya. On the ALD part 2, where I have
put Michael and Freya in the search parameters, I have over 8000
records to trawl through!

Thanks in advance.
