Re: Need translation on old objects/coins #bessarabia

Hi Gloria,

I got a translation for one side of this object, thanks a lot to Nathen!

Here is what he wrote:
When a boy is born the parents are congratulated with the following
blessing:
Shetizku legadelo letorah, lehuppa ulema'asim tovim.

You should be privileged to raise him to Torah, Huppa (wedding) and Good
Deeds.

Medal was apparently issued to honor the birth of a male child.

Nathen believes that this is an amulet. The writing on the side that he
couldn't decipher may be a Kabbalistic incantation meant to protect the
newborn.

Thanks to all of you,

----------------------------------
From: Martin Davis: I cannot read the object but I would be pretty certain
that it is a local variety of what, in Yiddish, are called 'plumbas'. These
plumbas are kosher food seals and metal detectorists turn them up all over
Europe (along with metal dreidels). Because of their durability they are
very often all that remains of a historic Jewish presence in an area.
......

Thank you.

The name Sonien #poland

Shari Nilsen <nilsen52@...>
 

My father, Saul, is nearly 89 years old. His father was >from Dubno
(now Ukraine) and his mother >from Lyakhavichi (Belarus). He has always
said that his Jewish name is Sonien (pronounced SAWN-yen). I have
never come across this name otherwise in my research. Has anyone ever
heard this name before? Could it be a Yiddish version of another name?
Any input would be appreciated.

Registered birth/marriage/death dates/years in Kalisz #lodz #poland

David W. Perle
 

Hi, all.

I wondered if I could gain some insight into recorded dates of
birth in Kalisz records. (Specifically birth records, but actually,
now I'm wondering if this might affect marriage and death dates as well?)

I understand that it was common for birth records to not necessarily be
submitted to the registrar right away, and in fact families might submit
records for a few years' worth of births all at once. Now, I've
seen disputed years of birth for a great-grandfather of mine, sometimes
suggested 1876 and others 1877. One record is his United States WWI-era
draft-registration card (which bears his signature, no less, so you'd
think this might be conclusive), indicating birth on December 16, 1876.

I found his birth record recorded apparently exactly at the same
time as those of three of his siblings, in the 1877 records.
(The ledger contains the four birth records written one after the other.)
I haven't gotten his siblings' records translated yet (hardly priority
just yet), but his shows that his birth record was added in April 1877,
indicating his birth a week earlier.

Knowing what I know about families taking their time to submit this
information, and with his and these three siblings' records having
apparently been submitted all at the same time in 1877, I'm guessing
that they made up the birth dates because perhaps it was law to submit the
records more immediately after birth, though I'd assume it wasn't such a
tightly-enforced law but they'd just make up the dates of birth so as to
give the impression of compliance? So, might the United States WWI-era
draft-registration card (again, bearing his signature), be more trustworthy
of a source indicating birth on December 16, 1876, rather than this April
1877 record?

Additionally, this gets me wondering about his father's 1849 birth
record. Might that also indicate an incorrect date of birth, even
perhaps an incorrect year of birth?

=And how about marriage and death records? Did the same slowness in
registering these things apply with those as well? Should we not
trust those marriage and/or death dates?

It had initially seemed pretty cool that my great-grandfather--my
namesake--Dawid Wolf Perle was born in 1877, because I was born in
1977. My father is named after HIS father, Sender Perle, also each
supposedly born exactly 100 years apart, 1849/1949. However, it seems
to me that my namesake was probably born 101 years before I was and
now I'm wondering if the same thing applies to my dad=92s namesake. :)

TURIO CANELLA Family in Bucuresti 1938 #romania

Artur Avelar <avelara.can@...>
 

Dear Colleagues,

from ITS Bad Arolsen Deutschland and connections, I've found some
precious information: my grandmother Adela MARCOVICI married my
grandfather Ion TURIO CANELLA in Bucuresti in the early 1910's.
They lived at Strada Alex Balasanu, 5 Bucuresti up to WWII.

My father Adrian (Marcovici) CANELLA was inmate at Arzberger-Heim
DP Camp in Wien in 1948.

Does it ring anyone's bell?
Appreciate any response.

Best Regards

Hello,

Would someone who reads Hebrew please help me determine whether a
'pre-subscriber' >from "Jurovice" is identified in the book Compilation Abraham.

While researching my Yurevichi town, I discovered that the Hebrew
Subscription List shows this book pre-ordered by an individual or group
from this town. I believe that I have located the correct book, as the
title, author, place of publication and year of publication all match.
I am having difficulty translating it.

You can see the Yiddish and Hebrew details for the pre-subscriber as
well as book on my research site here:

http://yurevichi.org/sources/hsl/start

The actual book is available online here:

http://www.hebrewbooks.org/pdfpager.aspx?req=7657&pgnum=1

The pre-subscriber I am trying to identify comes >from the town "Jurovice".
The Yiddish spelling is on the website; this email list does not take foreign
characters.

Please let me know if you can either identify the pre-subscriber >from this
town, or confirm that the online version does not show any pre-subscribers
(in which case I will need to visit the Jewish Theological Seminary to find
the physical first edition).

Thank you,
Jon
