Re: Female Given Name-Rudel/Rudla/Ruchla #general

Avrohom Krauss <krauss@...>
 

It makes lots of sense. The names "Rudel" and "Rudla" are two varients
(diminutives) of the Yiddish name "Ruddeh." "Ruchla" is a diminutive for the
Hebrew "Rachel". Although these Yiddish names are not technically related to
the Hebrew, Rachel, they may have been used together as a double name, ie
Rachel- Rudel/Rudla. Alternately, one name (eg Rachel) may have been her
offical name but she may have been called the other (eg Rudel/Rudla). Of
course there is a possibility that she had only one name, Rachel or
Rudel/Rudla- and the other was transcribed in error.

In different documents which I see I get different
given names of my ggrandmother. They are
Rudel/Rudla/Ruchla. Does it make sense???
Thanks

Re: Online Social Security Death Index #general

Avrohom Krauss <krauss@...>
 

My grandfather, who died in 1944, is not found in the SSDI. Fortunate for
me, he did, however, leave behind his Social Security Card, and so, I had
his Social Security number.Armed with his number and dates of birth and
death, I sent away for his SS-5 application form. In response, Soc. Sec
required me to furnish them with proof of death. After doing so, I received
the desired record. My question is, why is his name still absent >from the
SSDI years after my reporting (and supplying proof of his death) to SSA?

ROTTENBERG family #general

Michael Fischer <miketran@...>
 

I am looking for my ROTTENBERG family. My great aunt Sophie
Steinberg was married to Abraham Rottenberg. On the 1920 census,
they lived in New York with a daughter Freda and a boarder Freda
Weitzman. I think that Ms Weitzman name was really Beatrice, who I
know to be a cousin of Sophie. In the same building as Abe and
Sophie, lived another Rottenberg family who I think was a brother
of Abe. The names were Peter, Sylvia and their children Simon
and Miriam. On the 1930 census, it show Peter and his family
sharing an apartment with Abe Rottenberg and his daughter Freda.,
I have no idea where Sophie or Freda were. The address they lived at
was Park East.

More on street names #belarus

Does anyone have any idea where ulitsa Tadzik might be? (aka Tadzik St.)

It's an address recalled >from childhood without any geographical location
.
One possibility is Grodno, but that's not certain.

Yes, yes, this is a long shot, but who knows what strange things Internet

reveals?

Many thanks.

Romanian City Name #romania

David Taub <stuffandstuffandstuffus@...>
 

I was just told that my grandmother was born in a Romanian city that
sounds like "Spinke" ... I got this spelling >from an Israeli relative
who isn't very good with English, and wasn't sure on the exact name.
Does anyone have any ideas what city this could be? It is supposed to
be in the Transylvania region.

Thanks,

David Taub
