Re: The name DANZIGER in Germany #danzig #gdansk #germany #poland

Logan J. Kleinwaks
 

Micheline Gutmann pointed out that information about the geographical
distribution of the surname DANZIGER can also be found in Lars Menk's
book "A Dictionary of German-Jewish Surnames." I have asked Lars Menk
if he would be willing to supply us with an extract, as Alexander Beider
has done.

It should be emphasized that there is no evidence in these books linking
bearers of the surnames to Danzig itself. However, it is possible that we
will uncover connections as we proceed with Danzig research, which could
have genealogical implications for many people without a currently known
connection to Danzig.

I wonder whether some Danzig-derived surnames might indicate that the
bearers had actually lived in Danzig or that they had only had a business
relationship there or had some other connection to the city. I asked
Alexander Beider about this, and he responded that he was not aware of any
correlation between the form of a Danzig-derived surname and its bearer's
relationship to Danzig.

Elsebeth Paikin has provided information about a family with the surname
DANZIGER that lived in Denmark and Danzig (and other places). Should
anyone be aware of and wish to compile information about Danzigers (i.e.,
people with a known connection to Danzig, not just bearing a Danzig-derived
surname) living outside of Danzig -- information not currently appearing in
a JewishGen database -- please contact me to discuss possibilities. Thanks
very much.

finding the children of Itzele ben Chaim Volozhiner #belarus

Cnydorf@...
 

Dear Siggers
Maybe somebody can help me pursue this problem. I found the
Volozhin yizkor book and it has a lot of information about my ancestors Rabbi Chaim
Volozhin and his son Itzele (1780-1849). It gives the names of four of
Itzele's children, Eliyohu Zalmen, Rivke, Reyne-Basye, and Rekhl. But it also
mentions two others without giving their names. How can I find out what their names
were. I don't think that this is impossible because according to historian
Michael Stanislawski, Itzele was probably the best known Russian Jew in his
generation.

Dear Friends:

I apparently no longer have working email addresses for Barry Weiss and Lenore
Patton, both of whom are involved in projects for Markuszow near Lublin,Poland.

Since the JGFF is off-line, I haven't been able to do a search there to look
for them, so Barry and Lenore, if you read this, please contact me
privately, so I can update you on the projects and properly thank you!

If other readers happen to have email addresses for either of these
wonderful people, please contact me in case Barry and Lenore don't. Thanks!

American Jewish History Month #general

bik <kooshb9341@...>
 

Progress report...

Both the US Senate and the House passed resolutions urging President
Bush to proclaim January as "American Jewish History Month". This
historic legislation had broad bi-partisan support.

We now wait for President Bush to establish, by Executive Order,
"American Jewish History Month", an annual celebration to focus
attention on the tremendous contributions Jews have made in every area
of the development of our nation.

Is anyone familiar with translations of the given name SHIFRE other than
Sophie or Celia? Our family chart has a Sneur Zalman Waldstein married to
Shifre >from Uzpaliai. Of four children we've located with this father's
name, one identifies the mother as Shifre, one names Ruth and one names Rose.
It appears that Shifre was alive during the years of their births.

The two examples of "translations" given above are not translations at
all, as they are not related by meaning. "Shifra" is >from a Hebrew and
Aramaic root that makes words connected with "good". A translation of
"Shifra" to Yiddish therefore might be "Guta", quite a common name in
Jewish Eastern Europe. An alternative in Hebrew might be "Tova"
(="Good"). The latter often turns up as "Toby" in English, because it
is euphonious, but it is not in any way a translation.

The terminal "e" of "Shifre" as given in the query is spurious, being
the kind of shift that is often introduced by speakers of Yiddish.

"Sophia" is certainly not a translation; it is >from Greek, meaning
"Wisdom". A bit of digging on the Internet tells me that "Celia" is
ultimately >from "Sextus", meaning "Sixth"; the name was probably
invented by the parents of a *large* family that ran out of candidate
names after five children. It is not a translation of "Shifra".

If, on the other hand, you do not mean "translation" at all, then the
field is wide open. It might be anything beginning with "S", e.g.
"Shirley", "Suzy", or "Sally", or indeed with any other letter, since
there are no rules whatever.

INTRO - Jewish owned business in Berlin 1938-39 #germany

Chloe2000@...
 

I am a new member of GerSig and I am happy to be joining your group.
I have been doing family research for many years and recently have been able to
determine family ancestral towns located in Germany. I am searching for
the following families: ULLMANN >from Sprendlingen, Hesse, Darmstadt;
GUTTENBERG >from Ermreuth, Bavaria; GANS >from Ebenshausen; and NEWMARK from
Wielun. All of these families immigrated to New York between 1845-1872.

I have a specific inquiry regarding Jewish businesses in Berlin particularly
around 1937-39. I have a relative who owned a plumbing fixtures company and
I am trying to find information about this company. His business was taken
over by the Nazi's and he and his wife perished in the Holocaust. I am
searching for resources that might help me locate information about this business
as well as help me locate images of Berlin that might show this business.

If anyone has any leads or can suggest a database or resource, I would be most
appreciative. Thanks.
