Hebrew_Name_For_MÃjer/Moricz?? #hungary

Martin Kaminer
 

Hello All --
I'm digging a little deeper into my Hungarian ancestors and am trying
to figure out the Hebrew name of my maternal GGGF Mór/Moricz
Feigenbaum, born in Borsi in the late 1840's.
Are there certain Hebrew names more frequently associated with that
name? Any suggestions/theories welcome.
(I realize there's not necessarily a relation between the Hebrew and
vernacular first name).
Thanks,
Martin Kaminer

Two sons with same Hebrew name? #general

Jeremy Schuman
 

I have a question about naming traditions that I'd like to seek people's opinion
on:
A while ago, I discovered an old Russian record which indicated that my wife's
great-grandfather Asker Deggots (Hebrew name Yechezkiel ben Avraham) had an older
half-brother called Hatskel Leib Deguts, who was born in Russia about 25 years
before Asker was born. They had the same father but different mothers. I always
assumed that this older half-brother must have died before Asker was born, as
surely the father, Abraham Deguts, wouldn't have given the same Hebrew name to two
sons....however, this week, I discovered that a man called Leib Degutz emigrated
from Russia to the US in the 1890s. As the surname Deggots / Degutz is so rare
(perhaps unique?), it seemed highly likely that this Leib Degutz came >from the same
family as Asker. When I looked further into this, I discovered that Leib Degutz was
the son of an Abraham Degutz, and he was born around the same time as Asker's
half-brother Hatskel Leib Deguts . Could Leib and Hatskel Leib be the same person,
I wondered? Yesterday, I found a photo of Leib's daughter's gravestone, and this
gives the Hebrew name of her father as Yechezkiel Yehuda. As Leib is a common
Yiddish kinnui for Yehuda, it seems pretty certain that the Leib Degutz who went
to the US was indeed Asker's half-brother.

But is this possible??? Does anyone know if it has ever been common practice for
two sons to have the same Hebrew name at the same time? Does it make a difference
that they were only half-brothers, and one was Yechezkiel (known as Asker) while
the other was Yechezkiel Yehuda (known as Leib)?
Many thanks,
Jeremy Schuman

Visiting Balta #ukraine

Dave Lewak <dave@...>
 

Hi,
I'm planning a trip to Europe for next summer (2019), and am thinking of trying to visit Balta, where my grandfather Bernard Mishuris was born. I think I would need to fly to Odessa and then need a translator/driver to take me to Balta and back again. However, I have no idea how to find a translator and driver.

Can anyone recommend a translator/driver? Or some service to organize the trip?


Also, the IAJGS Cemetery Project lists four cemeteries for Balta: https://www.iajgsjewishcemeteryproject.org/ukraine/balta.html. Has anyone visited any of the cemeteries recently? If so, what state did you find them in?

And if anyone has any advice about a trip to Balta, I would like to hear it!

thanks -- Dave Lewak

At Chanukah…a special request from JRI-Poland #warsaw #poland

Stanley Diamond
 

Dear friends of JRI-Poland:

As we all celebrate the festival of Chanukah, JRI-Poland reflects on the generosity of the research family that supports our programs and initiatives each year.

Together we have done a remarkable job of raising resources to support our individual town projects and make the records of our families publicly searchable. For this, our heartfelt thanks!

And as you consider your year-end contributions, please be aware that the JRI-Poland General Fund can also use your further support. This fund allows us to continue to grow our infrastructure and provide new tools and resources for research on our website.

There are exciting plans underway to make JRI-Poland searches even more productive in the coming year, and "General Fund" donations can help make this initiative a reality.

www.jri-poland.org/support.htm

If you are in a position to make a major difference in the future of JRI-Poland please contact mitzvah@....

Remember, we now also provide a facility to make recurring donations. Small donations, each month, can make a difference

Note: Jewish Records Indexing - Poland is an independent non-profit organization with its own administration, volunteers and fundraising. Because JRI-Poland's database, discussion group and website are hosted by JewishGen, as a courtesy to researchers, JRI-Poland enables its data search results to be displayed on JewishGen's All Poland Database.

Wishing each and every one a healthy and joyous Chanukah.

Stanley Diamond
Executive Director
On behalf of the Board of JRI-Poland
