Success in finding origin of my relative's first name Lucy #general

Roberta Sheps
 

Some months ago I asked if anyone could suggest an original name in Yiddish for the
English "Lucy". I received a lot of replies, suggesting that Lucy was most likely
an English version of Lutsia (or some other European variation). As Lutsia/Lucie/
Lucia was the name of an early Christian martyr I was pretty sceptical that this
would have been my relative's original name.

Well,it wasn't. A little while ago I received an email >from a member of that branch
of the family, leading to the discovery of many more cousins. Whoopee!! It turns
out her real name was Gila, which fits well into the family naming pattern, but for
some reason people called her Lucy. She remained in the Ukraine, studied medicine,
was the chief of the Red Army hospital in Dnepropetrovsk, and by the end of the war
was a Major in the Red Army. Some woman.

Happy Pesach to all (I just found kosher for Pesach Nutella. My cup runneth over.)

INTRO - researching FUNK family from Koenisgberg #germany

Neil Stone <neilmstone@...>
 

Hello GerSig,

I just joined the group. I have been doing genealogy research for
over 10 years. I consider myself to be advanced in doing genealogy
research, but I am new to German Jewish Genealogy research. I live in Radlett
in the UK. My native language is English; I know a very little German.
I consider myself expert using a computer. My experience in using the Internet
is extensive .

I am researching my wife's g-grandfather Israel Edward FUNK, born
Palanga, now Lithuania, ca 1857, who was married in Koenigsberg, East
Prussia in 1882; and also Adolph FUNK, b 1840-1850 in Palanga, a
likely relative (?brother) of Israel FUNK, who worked for many years
for the HAPAG shipping line in Koenigsberg, and died in Berlin in 1937.

My primary research goals now are to find out establish any connection
between Israel and Adolph FUNK My JGFF Researcher ID number is 77987.

I would appreciate advice on obtaining Koenigsberg records, as my email to
the Standesamt I register office in Berlin, where I believe Koenigsberg
records would be held, has met with silence! Any other ideas also welcome.

Many thanks, Neil Stone, Radlett, UK neilmstone@...

Correction: The status of Permanent *Town* Resident in Poland #poland

Orit Lavi
 

Dear friends

I am afraid that my previous post with a similar subject was wrongly phrased.

I am interested in the status of Permanent Town Residency - Stal/y
Mieszkaniec in Polish.

This status was similar to a "town citizenship", while the town could
be different >from the town of actual residence.
As many of you know, this status was often noted in vital records, and
there were also Books of Permanent Residents.

So,I would appreciate references to primary or scholarly resources
dealing with the various aspects of this status.
In particular, I am interested in the reasons for a person to change
his born status, and in the practical implications of this status.
I would also like to learn about the procedure that was required to
change this status.

Many thanks again and Chag Sameach

Name of cemetery in NY - VM14952 #general

Robert Fraser <rwfgjf@...>
 

I'd like to thank the very many responders who identified the cemetery as Ocean
View, in Staten Island, a non-denominational cemetery with a Jewish section.

Now I plan to contact the Hebrew Free Burial Association, as several readers
suggested, to see if they have the records I seek. It's been a interesting journey,
staring with few clues, but I'm now hopeful of success.

Laurel,

They are actually written in Russian. Polish was never transposed into Cyrillic,
unlike Lithuanian, which for some period was forced to switch to Cyrillic by
the Russian authorities.
