Re: Surname DANKER #general

Roger Lustig
 

Dear Raymond:
There may well be DANKERs of Jewish descent, but there are many others
who are not. In today's Germany, the telephone directory reveals 330
private listings for DANKER, 467 for DANKERT, and another 100 or so for
DANCKER[T]. If you add in DENKER and the corresponding variants, the
total surpasses 2,000.

Lars Menk's _Dictionary of German-Jewish Surnames_ reports only one
DENKER and no DANKERs >from the period when Jews adopted permanent
surnames. He also points out that "Danker" is a nickname for Dankwart,
a traditional German given name.

Now, that's only Germany, and in eastern Europe the situation may have
been different. But, as with almost any name, DANKER is not
automatically an indicator of Jewish roots, or even highly suggestive of
them.

IGRA's new search engine #latvia

Martha Lev-Zion <martha@...>
 

IGRA, the Israel Genealogy Research Association has released
its new search engine for the AID (All Israel Databases)
section:

http://genealogy.org.il/AID/

At the IAJGS International Conference in Paris last July, IGRA
was awarded the Stern Grant with the intent that these monies
be used to develop a bi-lingual search engine to improve our
website. We contracted with Brooke Schreier Ganz and worked
closely with her to build what we hope will be a much improved
search experience. Rose Feldman, Carol Hoffman, Daniel Horowitz,
Garri Regev and Philip Trauring has each contributed >from their
special fields to make this possible. We believe we now bring you
a balanced assortment of databases >from the Ottoman, British and
Israeli Administrations, relating to communities >from the north
to the south, and in many different fields. Some of the databases
are in English but most are in Hebrew, with a few additional
languages as well. Each database is presented in the language of
the material found. The search engine, however, is able to
understand both English and Hebrew and will bring you matches in
both languages even if you only entered the name in one language.

There is a virtual keyboard available if you do not have a Hebrew
keyboard but feel the need of one.

You will notice on the right side of the page there are more
filters to fine tune your search, in addition to entering just
the names you are searching. Give them a try!! Adding more or
fewer parameters is quite simple. Our databases and search
engine page is available to all registered users of our website
(registration is free!). Please be sure to log in. You will be
alerted if you do not have permission to access information.
Due to restrictions >from the various archives, we have had to
layer the accessibility to some databases. There are databases
available to everyone. Some of our databases allow you to search
but not to see all the details. Other databases are only for
paid IGRA membership. The same is true for database images.
Nearly all images have been added and the remaining few will be
added in the coming days.

Hello,

As a descendant of Pesach Langsam, nephew to the Rebbe Reb Mylech (aka
Noam Elimelech), I have numerous trees >from some of the Weissbloom
descendants, spanning 300 years. If you contact me at the email below
with some more detail, I can see if your relative shows up in any of
those trees.

Keep an open mind, as it may be that in fact they do not descend from
him, but like me, are a nephew. Countless relatives of mine think they
descend >from him, because "they remember hearing we have a connection".

He has a tradition in his family that they are descendants of R.
Elimelech of Lizensk. I recall reading on this list about a website
whose creator devoted the site to help those descendants with a
tradition of being >from this family to find the exact geneology. If
anyone who knows what the site is please let me know. Thank you.
