Re: Named for more than 1 person? Thank you #general

Fran Segall <FranSegall@...>
 

I received too many responses to my query to thank each one individually
-- what a great group! Thank you all -- after 55 years, it's nice to
finally know who's name I was given. Just an added benefit of this
genealogy obsession of mine!

Thanks again!

Subject: Named for more than 1 person?


Could someone please tell me if Jewish children are ever given a
given-name for more than one person? My Hebrew name is Feige. My
mother's grandmother and my father's grandmother were BOTH named Feige.
Both died many years before my birth, although I don't know the years.
I have no way to know which one I was named for, but is it possible or
likely that the intention was to honor both?

locations; even better, Merle,...there are photos of every house in every
borough of NYC... taken in 1940 by the wpa...so you can see what they looked
like (the houses may have been replaced or refronted)....look at the NYC
municipal archives website for information on how to order online.

Re: Hamburg Passenger Lists #unitedkingdom

Before I got bored paging through the lists of Hamburg Passenger List
Films/Fiche at FHL, I got to 1934, so they don't stop in 1902. There are
many microfiche, which the branch libraries should have on hand, of indices.
If your family went through Boulogne to Southhampton and then NYC, they will
not be on the Hamburg Passenger Lists as they did not go through Hamburg.
If you see them on some ship to NY, then it should be fairly easy to look up
that ship in the Ellis Island records and get their information. Try Steven
Morse web site if you haven't tried it. If you know the ship and the
arrival time, this should be easy.

By the way, direct meant that they stayed on the same ship all the way from
Hamburg to their destination. Indirect means they changed ships in Britain,
usually on land >from the east to the west coast and getting a trans-Atlantic
ship. Your family went indirectly (through Southhampton) but apparently not
from Hamburg.

Address books in Vienna - two sources? #general

Thomas F. Weiss
 

Hi fellow Jgenners,

I am planning a family history research trip to Vienna and
would like to consult address and telephone books. Address books
(Lehmann's Wiener Wohnungsanzeiger) are apparently available >from
1859 to 1965. Telephone books are available since 1900. In
examining sites over the Internet, it appears that there are at least
two where these books can be accessed. One is at the Austrian
National Library located in the Heldenplatz. The other is at the
Wiener Stadt- und Landesbibliothek., Magistratabteilung 9, in the
Rathaus.

Do these two sites have identical information? What are the relative
advantages and disadvantages of using each of these two sites?

I would appreciate your help. Please respond to me privately at
tfweiss@mit.edu

In Berdichev Uyezd:

Makhnovka

Vakhnovka

In Skvira Uyezd:

Named for more than one person #general

Barbara Zimmer <bravo.zulu@...>
 

My cousin was named for both of her grandmothers, both of whom were
Anna. But instead of namiing her Anna (since one of her grandmothers
was still living), her parents named her Diane (Di indicating two).

I'd like to join all the others in thanking Dave Fox for his extraordinary
work. Having begun my own research in the days of letter-writing and tedious
fact-checking, I can appreciate how quickly and comprehensibly genealogical
information is now available via electronic sources. So much of the credit
for this access can be attributed to Dave Fox's relentless and dedicated
work, important both personally and historically. On a daily basis, it
amazes me how many people are still trying to reach out and locate their
relatives, share facts, and offer support. It has truly been a family tree,
spreading its roots wide and far. So thanks again Dave for all your efforts
and the best of luck in your personal endeavors.

Driving route from Vienna to southern Moravia #austria-czech

Michael Gordy
 

I'm looking for advice on the best driving route >from Vienna to Straznice,
near Hodonin in southern Moravia. Last time I did it, I took B7 north >from
Vienna to the border crossing near Mikulov. That route is a bit slow, and
I'm wondering whether it makes more sense to drive east >from Vienna into
Slovakia and take the D2 highway north to the border crossing near Breclav.

To be more precise with my question:
(a) If I go through Slovakia, where should I cross the Austria-Slovakia border?
(b) When I cross into Slovakia, will I need to buy currency? Will I need a
highway sticker?
(c) Not all border crossings are open to third-country citizens. I found this
out the hard way at a crossing near Hodonin, where I was sent back. Any
warnings in this respect?
I'm a US citizen.

By the way, I'll be spending two full days in Straznice, probably with a
half-day in Hodonin. Can I be of service?

Old professions in Vienna #austria-czech

Florence & Henry Wellisch <kelwel@...>
 

As I mentioned in another message, while Bob Hanscom and I are collecting
the Viennese birth and marriage records 1784 - 1848 we found various archaic
expressions. Here are a few with a French origin;
Admodiateur = Tenant, leaseholder
Traiteur = Caterer, Restaurateur (a French word in itself)

I grew up in Vienna and remember many French words in everyday use, such as:
Plafond = Ceiling
Trottoir = Sidewalk
Parapluie = Umbrella
Friseur = Barber, hairdresser
Rentier = Pensioner
Bankier = Banker
Magazineur = Stock keeper
Kabinett = Small room
Boudoir = Ladies private room
Rendezvous = Meeting
Renommee = Reputation ........... and many others
Some of these words can not be found in German dictionaries, since these
were produced in Germany, also once known in Vienna as the "Altreich" or
Deutschland and whose inhabitants were sometimes referred to as "Die
Saupreussen".
