Researching FRAJDENRAJCH from Poland #general

Yohanan
 

We are researching FRAJDENRAJCH family >from Poland. We know about Mendel and Eva
FRAJDENRAJCH and 3 children: Abraham, Gittle and Chaim (all probably born circa
1900). Mendel's last known address in about 1930 was in Groschow, Warsaw. They
could have come to Warsaw in late 1800s >from another location. We know about
Abraham, who lived later in England and Australia, though he did not leave any
information about his FRAJDENRAJCH family in Poland. If it rings a bell please let
me know.

David Schwartz <davidasconsulting@...>
 

I am searching for information on the family of my Grandmother, born Helen
Greenspan, born in 1914 in Poland. Public records seem to indicate that the family
is >from Lvov, Poland. I am looking for any information or leads about this family.

Some additional details:
Her father was Paul Greenspan Her mother was Hannah (Brenner) Greenspan
I believe she was >from a large family, but so far only located three
siblings: Anna (emigrated to Buffalo, NY) and Caroline (emigrated to
NYC) and Helen (emigrated to NYC... and married my grandfather)

Thank you in advance for any help you can provide.

Zastrselona translation #general

Errol Schneegurt
 

Would like to thank all that responded to my request for the translation of
Zastrselona meaning "shot.to death".it does not surprise me that in 1916 it would be
a cause of death and closes one more door in my analysis. In general, I think cause
of death is important for the families to know, if it can be found.
As usual the response was overwhelming.

This week's Yizkor book excerpt on the JewishGen Facebook page #general

Bruce Drake <BDrake@...>
 

One kind of chapter I often come across in Yizkor books, and have
published here before, is a compendium of Yiddish nicknames or sayings
that were popular in a town or region. These are yet another prism for
getting a feel for daily life. Such is the case with "Nicknames in
Chrzanow," a shtetl in Poland that's a little less than 40 miles >from
Krakow. So, you learn that "knaytsh" was a tavernkeeper who served beer
on credit on the Sabbath, since he wouldn't take any money. And a
"kozemashin" had its origin in the business of an enterprising Jew who
came up with the idea of bringing a booth with a stove and sold "roasted
potatoes and chestnuts, drew apple wine with seltzer >from a copper jug,
and most impressive, had a sort of roulette game- a wheel with a wooden
stork in the middle."

Calculations for Cousins #dna

David Goldman
 

Hi, everybody. As a green new participant learning along the way and looking
for correlations, I am finding that at the known second cousin levels the
numbers of CmS on segments reach very high, like over 200. Discovering known
and unknown second cousins once removed and third cousins, however, the
numbers of CmS drop to the 90s (whereby we had great-grandparents who were
siblings). However, in both situations I have definite confirmations of
matches. So it impels me to try to figure out how apparent unknown relatives
in the 80 or 90 CmS are related. So far at least I have been unable to
confirm any matches at all below the number 90 CmS.
Just some anecdotal information.

Re: Shapiro

What about a Hebrew origin such as Sapir? I've always been under the
impression that this is the "root" of Shapiro.

Translation of cause of death #general

Can someone translate the word Zastrselona. It relates to the cause of
death on a 1916 Polish death record in the city of Lviv. I have looked
in a Polish to English medical dictionary and cannot find it listed.
