EHRLICH of Monterrey, Nuevo Leon, Mexico #latinamerica

Jane Reifer <cluttercontrol@...>
 

Hello,

I'm new to the list and would like to ask if any one knows of a Julius
EHRLICH who immigrated to Monterrey, Nuevo Leon, Mexico in the early 20th
century (I think) >from Moravia or Hungary. Julius' father was Josef and his
mother was Anna ARNSTEIN of Moravia or Bohemia. He was one of 11 siblings,
but I think he is the only one who settled in Mexico. One of his brothers
(we think his name was Isaac) was Provost or Rektor at the University of
Vienna. Two of his brothers, Morris and Emil, settled in the United States
(Kankakee, Illinois and Tampa, Florida) and may have visited him.

Perhaps some of this sounds familiar?

Thanks for your time,

Re: Genealogy quote from Lord Zuckerman #general

Solly ZUCKERMAN was knighted in 1956 by Queen Elizabeth, thus becoming Sir
Solly. It's rumored that Prince Philip asked at the ceremony "Why is this
knight different >from all other knights?"

Apes, 2).


Solly Zuckerman, became a Baron Zuckerman (1904-1993).
In World War II, his research for the British government included the impact
of bombing on people and buildings. Post-war he was professor of anatomy at
Birmingham University (1946-68). He was chief scientific adviser to the
Ministry of Defence (1960), and subsequently chief scientific adviser to the
British government (1964 to 1971).

He also served as the secretary of the Zoological Society of London >from 1955
to 1977 and as its President >from 1977 to 1984. Essentially he was one of the
pioneers of primate behavioural studies. His influence helped make science a
conventional part of Western world government policy.

Re: BONDI as a translation of YOM TOV (in Italy)? #general

Stan Klaff <stanklaff@...>
 

Bondi is not uncommon - a search of the White Pages in Italy reveal at least
at 50

Also Bondi Beach in Australia


BONDI is a not entirely uncommon surname in Europe among Jews, both Sfardim
and Ashkenazim. In Romance languages it means "good day," and was used by
Jews who were named YomTov

I just read that one Sandro BONDI, is the national coordinator for the
Forza Italia Party headed by recently defeated Italian prime minister Silvio
Berlusconi. Is BONDI a known name among Italian gentiles?

I am descended >from a line of YomTovs. There are many traces of names
similar to my family name, BERNET, that are associated with YomTovs in the
Middle Ages, in Provence, Spain and Italy and whenever there is a prompt, like
this, my quixotic heart muscle twinges a little.

Information on Italian Jewish Bondis, anyone?.

Sundel Senier and Siegmund Harpner #southafrica

Every now and then the newsletters of the eGSSA (Electronic newsletters
of the Genealogical Society of South Africa) have items of Jewish
interest. The current issue is >from the Orange Free State branch. For
further subscription details of newsletters e-mail colin.pretorius@...

First Jew buried in Beaufort West was Sundel Senier, in 1881. The
article also notes Siegmund Harpner, “a private official and Lieutenant
in the Austrian Landwehr”, born in Budapest, Hungary, in 1865, he was
killed in a railway accident at Grootfontein in 1896. the reference is
to South African Jewish Times, June 6, 1947.

The Senior family is one of the known Litvak families of Sephardi origin.

Thanks for the interesting list!
My ancestors >from Slovakia (Senica, Trsin and maybe other towns) used the
name PETERSELKA or PETERZELKI already in 1751.
One of the theories suggest that the family originated in the Moravian
village called Neu-Raussnitz (today: Rousinov, near Brno), since a certain
Jakob PETERSELKA appears there in 1669 (source: Hugo Gold's book on Moravia).

Interestingly, in my family which was than in Slovakia (around 1800) the
name PETERSELKA was changed to SQUARENINA (or Skvarenina, Squarenim,
Schkwarenin and other variants).

I don't know if it was officially or not. This * might * suggest that there
were not always an "acceptable" or "not acceptable" names, but just that
the current name had to be changed.

It should be interesting to see if in such name changes lists, in a certain
community,one person took a new name, which is the same as another person's
old name.

The town Kostel (today: Podivin) has another importance to me since my
grandmother's uncle, Yaakov-Koppel (Charles) DUSCHINSKY, was the local
rabbi >from 1904 to 1907, when he moved to London.

Best regards,
Tomer Brunner, Israel.

Re; Kostel Name changes ( Celia Male's mail)

The list, which Dr.Schwenger ( Rabbi of Lundenburg ) perused, were
originally in the Lichtenstein's castle - archive at Lundenburg.
Today they might be einther at the Zemsky Archive at Brno, or
the Breclav Archive at Mikulov.

Subject: Re: Familiants and Name Changes in Kostel/Podivin, 1787
Regarding Celia Male's posting about Kostel/Podivin, Count
Lichtenstein was one of the largest land owners in Soutwestern
Moravia, and Kostel/Podivin was one of his properties. The original
materials are probably in the Moravsky Zemsky Archiv (Brno), though
there are some materials in Schloss Lichtenstein in Vienna.
