A resource for our promotion of Jewish Genealogy #poland

Michael Goldstein
 

What does Oct 29 to Nov 26 2011 have in common with IAJGS, your JGS, your
SIG, you and the Jewish Genealogy? If your answer was that this is the
Hebrew month of Cheshvan you are right in part. It is also International
Jewish Genealogy Month and an opportunity and vehicle to have our
communities focus on Jewish Genealogy and our JCCs, our SIGS and our
projects.

This year's International Jewish Genealogy Month Committee will be chaired
by Nancy Adelson of Seattle who will be joined by Rabbi Garry Gans of New
Jersey, Howard Morris of Boston, Jeanette Rosenberg of England and Garri
Regev of Jerusalem. We are still looking to expand the committee and get
volunteers to ensure a success so if you have any ideas let me know.

And though our focus is a month of great programs, our annual poster is an
anchor. Details of the poster contest for which a June 15th submission date
has been established, are to be found at our website www.iajgs.org and will
be elaborated on by Nancy.

So start thinking of International Jewish Genealogy Month whether you live
in Los Angeles, Toronto, Liverpool, Ra'anana, Johannesburg, Paris or
Melbourne. Your fall programs are right around the corner.

Re: Yiddish Name Michel #poland

Perets Mett <p.mett@...>
 

I am afraid that this is a common misconception.

However, the fact that two names sound alike does not mean that they are
connected etymologically.

For example, the English name Jack has no etymological connection with
Jacob (which it sounds like); rather it is a derivation >from John.

Likewise, the Yiddish name Michl, or Michel (but certainly not Michal)
has no etymological connection with the Hebrew name Michael.

The Hebrew name Yechiel developed into the form Ichel, which later
became Michel, as the historical documents show.

The combination Yechiel-Michel is entirely cognate to Shlomo-Zalman,
where the first part is a genuine Hebrew name and the second part is the
kinuy (Yiddish form).

The reference to Yosef Eliyahu in this context is red herring.

Hi all,
Sorry to say, but the name Michel is not related by any way to the

Michel is a common Yiddish version of the Hebrew name Michael (one of
the
famous angels is called Michael).
Yechiel is a Hebrew name by its own.
Many Jewish people carry two first names. These names may be related
(e.g.
Menachem-Mendel, Shlomo-Zalmen etc.) or not related at all.
Yechiel-Michal
belongs to the 2nd group. For example, my name is Yosef-Eliyahu, and
the
reason for this is that one of my grandfathers was called Yosef, and
the
other was called Eliyahu. Nobody will say that there is some
connection
between these names.
Back to Michel, my g-grandfather (as well as some others in my JURGRAU
family) was called Yechiel-Michal - and this combination belongs to
the 2nd
group too.
