Schrenzel name meaning #general

Eli Brauner
 

Dear all,

In the book Jewish Family Names and Their Origins: An Etymological Dictionary,
by Heinrich Walter Guggenheimer FE,Eva H., the meaning of the family name
Schrenzel is: "young man with slit court suit". What actually does it mean? Is it
some kind of profession?
Thanks for replies,
Eli Brauner

JGS NY Meeting April 30, 2017 #general

Harriet Mayer
 

Jewish Genealogical Society Meeting co-sponsored by JewishGen.org

Sunday, April 30, 2017 at 2 PM at Museum of Jewish Heritage, 36 Battery Place, NY
NY

Program: "The History and Regulation of Jewish Surnames in the Russian Empire"
Speaker: Dr. Jeffrey Mark Paull

In the Russian Empire there were myriad ways in which Jewish surnames were created,
assigned or adopted. As a result of Russian laws and mandates, many non-related
Jewish individuals acquired the same surname, while many related family members
acquired different surnames and tight restrictions were placed on changing or
altering them. These circumstances have created many challenges for genealogists
who try to trace their ancestry or locate descendants of a particular lineage, as
well as for interpreting DNA test results. This presentation will help to
understand the complexities of Jewish surname adoption and use.

Dr. Jeffrey Paull earned his B.S. in Chemistry and M.S. in Industrial Hygiene >from
the University of Pittsburgh and his M.P.H and Ph.D >from the Johns Hopkins
University Bloomberg School of Public Health. Following his career as an
environmental toxicologist and scientific expert in the occupational and
environmental health fields, he has devoted himself to Jewish genealogical research
and writing. He is active in the field of genetic genealogy and has identified the
unique genetic signature of some of Eastern European Jewry's most renowned rabbis
and rabbinical lineages.

All are welcome.

Question About Ukraine to US Travel Routes in 1912 #ukraine

Sheldon Rabin
 

Sometimes, like this morning, going over some long-held documents once
again and more carefully can raise some interesting new questions.

My great-grandmother Rose GOLDFARB and three daughters came over to
the US on the S.S. Kursk in 1912. All three girls were born in Kivertsy,
Ukraine per their U.S. marriage license affidavits, and Kiwrotzi
(presumably Kivertsy) was listed as their last residence on the ship's
manifest. However, when I looked again today at the ship's manifest,
I noticed that their departure port was Libau, Latvia and that later,
on the their naturalization applications, they had listed their last
residence before taking the ship as Vilna, Russia (presumably Vilnius,
Lithuania) and not Kivertsy.

Everyone else in my family tree >from the western Ukraine and
eastern Poland traveled to the US via ships that departed >from west
European cities including Bremen, Antwerp, etc. So, I am wondering
whether the GOLDFARB family's route via Latvia (600 miles >from Kivertsy
to Libau) was normal for people leaving northwestern Ukraine in that
period, or does it reflect the possibility that the GOLDFARB family
may have moved to Vilna for a time before moving on to Latvia and the US?

Any suggestions to help explain their travels will be much appreciated.

German translation requested (ViewMate) #germany

jberlowitz <jberlowitz331@...>
 

Dear SIGgers,
I would appreciate your skills in deciphering and translating portions
of the image I've just posted on ViewMate:

http://www.jewishgen.org/viewmate/responselist.asp?key=54569

I would like to know what the words are before the name (Walter Frank
Hugo Ernst LIEFMANN) and what it says after the name of the Kibbutz
(Givat Brenner).
Do you think that the date on the document is the date of the
beginning of his residency at Givat Brenner? This is important because
I believe that this person volunteered in the Spanish Civil War
(against Franco) - in Spain since Oct 1936 in Tankbrigade. Stalinists
accused him of some underhanded deals and supposedly imprisoned him.

Will appreciate - and acklowledge - all efforts.
