Re: meaning of ZENA; info. from Amer. records #hungary

ilona lerman <phililona2001@...>
 

Thanks to all who helped me with meaning of ZENA from
cemetery lists of Presov. Apparently it means "wife
of" in Slovak.
New question: I want to find out where my grandmother
was born. She and my father came to US in 1923 from
Presov, but I don't think she and my grandfather were
"natives" of Presov. That's what my father told me,
and also I don't find my greatgrandparents names on
Presov cemetery lists. My grandmother lived in NY and
died there in 1966. She also remarried in US. How can
I find out her birthplace >from American documents
(death certificate, marriage certificate,social
security??), as I can't get to the Hungarian records?
Any help would be greatly appreciated.

WWII Evacuation of Ukraine #ukraine

Flo Elman
 

Just to add my shiny pennies to the current thread -
In the course of my research, I made contact with the family branch believed
by my Canadian relatives to have perished in the Holocaust. Instead, all of
them had survived WWII as they fled the Nazi occupation of Cherkassy, Kiev
and made their way to the Urals. There they remained in a town close to
Sverdlovsk until 1945.

Its possible but given the number of Burstein/Bernstein/Burshteins in the

Bertha BURSTEIN married Herman (or Hyman) BECKER (possibly >from Kovno or

As mentioned in a previous email, in May 2002, I set out with my wife

remnants of our history we could uncover. You can see my image

Re this cheese kreplakh dish, saltinosis, I have the Sara Kasdan ("Love and
Knishes") recipe, in which the kreplakh are boiled only until they rise to
the top of the water and then are put in a dish and have sour cream
slathered all over them to be baked in the oven. Talk about a dieter's
nightmare? This one is a cholesterol counter's nightmare! I'll be glad to
send the recipe to anyone who wants to die early! (Grin.)

Re: Help With Yiddish or Hebrew Signature: View Mate #1563 #lithuania

Richard Lakein <rlakein@...>
 

Jackye,

The signature is Yiddish. It says "Leib Goldshmid"
Leib(Yiddish)/Loeb(German) is Lion, which is Aryeh in Hebrew,
and they are all commonly used for the real Hebrew name Yehudah
(Judah). And Louis is a very common version when they came to USA.
