clarification #latinamerica

Lea Haber Gedalia <msleag@...>
 

Dear Members, Colleagues and Friends,

I would like to clarify an important subject related to our announcement of
yesterday -

The announcement related to the new database uploaded at IGS web site
"Surname change transcribes in the Gov. Publication Yalkut Hapirsumin "
which helps researchers follow name change in Israel between 1948-1979,
searchable at http://www.isragen.org.il/siteFiles/13/247/8233.asp

Don't confuse between this Hebrew database and the database called
"Surname change during the British Mandate 1921-1948" published at the
Palestine Gazette , which was prepared by IGS for the 2004 international
convention in J-M , and is searchable in English only.

I would like to state that the new database [Yalkut Hapirsumim] was enabled
to all of us via IGS website, thanks to the decisiveness and willpower of
our member Amnon Atzmon, Chairperson of Ra'anana chapter and in charge of
PR. It is searchable at the moment in Hebrew only.

KRECHMAN/KRECHTMAN family from Ostrow Lubelski, Poland #general

Avraham Y. Kahana
 

I am trying to help someone in his (very difficult) research on his
father's side, Modechai Zelig KRECHMAN/KRECHTMAN, born about 1920 (Feb
12th, perhaps).
The only info that is available is:

Israel and Rachel KRECHMAN had the following children:
Mordechai Zelig, Shlomo, Masha and Chava.

The family is said to have lived in Ostrow Lubelski.

from Mordechai Zelig's birth date, I guess his parents married
sometime around 1890, 1900. They may have been born around 1870.

And this is all that there is to it. With this few pieces of
information only - and the fact that the KRECHMAN children might have
been born some 90 years ago (meaning no indexes will be found at JRI
for them), I feel there is almost nothing that can be done at this
time.

If anyone possesses any sort of info on this family, that would be
highly valuable.

Thanks,

State archive records less than 100 years old #general

Avraham Y. Kahana
 

Hi all,
JRI-Poland's introduction text states that records to be found at
Polish State Archives are those that are a hundred or more years old.
When they are not, they will be found at Town Civil records offices.

A question: is it that these local/town civil offices are not open to
public research and the only possibility of visiting such facilities
for research is a State Archive? If the answer is no, then it would be
possible for some - instead of having to conform/wait the necessary
amount of years till they are transferred to its corresponding State
Archive - to go personally and research such records. If the answer is
yes - and I believe it is - that would explain why we have no other
option (I could ask why JRI-Poland indexing teams do not visit the
local/town civil offices as well, and I am left to assume that they do
not due logistic reasons (one state archive must comprise several
town/local civil offices).

Thanks in advance,

Re: [Galicia] The Temple in Lviv ( Lvov) #galicia

J.C.Keiner <j.c.keiner@...>
 

A cousin of my maternal grandmother's family was apparently a rabbi in the
reform synagogue in Lvov, which I presume was The Temple. His name was Rabbi
Guttman and he would have been murdered in the Shoah. I don't know any more
details than that --my maternal grandmother's family were all unwaveringly
Orthodox-- and would love to find out more. There was apparently another
Lvov Guttman cousin who was a Yiddish Theatre actor, also murdered in the
Shoah.

Any information would be most welcome.

Re: Unusual Names #ukraine

Barry Sieger
 

Regarding the email regarding an unusual name Chanuy, my guess is that this
is Channa, a common Yiddish name. I've been translating Russian Jewish vital
records (>from Poland but written in Russian) and I've found that Yiddish
names tend to be written differently depending on the recorder and
translated differently depending on the translator. Russian vowels are
confusing to the non-native and is subject to all sorts of variation.
Recorders transliterate what they hear and sometimes the reporting family
member might express a name in a diminutive form or nickname.

Regarding the email regarding an unusual name Chanuy, my guess is that this
is Channa, a common Yiddish name. I've been translating Russian Jewish vital
records (>from Poland but written in Russian) and I've found that Yiddish
names tend to be written differently depending on the recorder and
translated differently depending on the translator. Russian vowels are
confusing to the non-native and is subject to all sorts of variation.
Recorders transliterate what they hear and sometimes the reporting family
member might express a name in a diminutive form or nickname.

Transcription help needed. #lithuania

Hi - I'm trying to find my great great grandmother's maiden name, who
came >from Slobodka, born approximately 1832. Her married name is listed
as Tserna Borker in the Lithuanian records. She had 7 children who came
to America, but most of their records omit her maiden name. Here is the
only that does give a maiden name, a 1885 New Jersey marriage
certificate of one of her sons.

My best guess as to what's written there for her maiden name, is
"Cernper" (see the word Certificate at the bottom of the page). But
this doesn't match any Lithuania surname that I can think of. Either my
transcription is wrong, or the surname is totally contrived (or
Americanized), just like her first name was Americanized to Anna (as was
her husband's name, >from Mordecai to Maurice). Any other opinions
would be greatly appreciated. Thanks!
