Shalom,
I try to trace my great aunt Bertha (Bassie) LEVIN (Levine) who lived in
Montreal Canada.
Maybe her husband was called Hirsch or Girsh - Gershel / Hershel LEVIN.
Bertha's daughter named was Maria (Marusia).
Bertha and her family were originally >from Belarus. Bertha was a high school
teacher of literature and was specialist mainly in Russian literature.
Perhaps, they lived in a suburb or town outside the city.

Beniaminovich / Bonevich #belarus

Israel P
 

There are two Zalman Rosenblium listed among the 1906 Duma voters in
Borisov (Belarus).

One has the patronymic Beniaminovich and the other Bonevich. The first is
clearly Benyamin and the second sounds like Bunem, a diminuitive of
Binyamin.

Would these be two people or the same person twice?

Emily COHEN BELL 1903-1987 Searching for Jewish relatives of Grandmother (COHEN and DANA) #general

Gay Taweel <gaytaweel@...>
 

Hello,

I have no idea if my grandmother, Emily COHEN BELL, had any siblings, nephews,
nieces etc.

I am sure someone in Haifa may know her family tree. Thru my late uncle Jack
BELL [All her children passed away; the last was my mother in 2010].

I was told Emily COHEN comes >from a very good prominent Cohen family in Haifa.
Her mother's maiden name is >from the DANA family, I believe.

Info about my Grandmother Emily COHEN BELL Bell - 1903-1987
-At age of 14 she married to a non-Jewish, American Grandfather, Roberts
Smith Bell.
-Widowed at age of 34/35.
-She had four children, Jack Robert Smith Bell, Janie, Myra (my mother who
attended a nuns Carmelite school in Haifa) and Gladys.
-Died in 1987 - her final years where in a German hospice/retirement home in
Haifa.

Info about my Grandfather Roberts Smith Bell - 1883-1937
-Born in Philadelphia, USA 1883.
-He helped engineer the Hejaz railway to Jordan >from Israel, I think.
-He met Lawrence of Arabia.
-Died 1937 in Haifa and was buried in an Anglican/British Haifa cemetery. My
mother was 14 at the time.

I am only interested to learn and contact via email Jewish COHEN/DANA
Relatives in Israel.

I have all the Bell family connection thru cousins.

Thank you

Female name Sela and Sihardis? (Cologne, 13th century) #germany

Tobias A. Kemper <kemper@...>
 

Hello,

from the 11th to 15th century, there was a very prominent patrician
(non-jewish, christian) family in Cologne called "Jude", "Judde",
"Jüdde" (all the same: "Jew" in german and in local Cologne dialect).

The first member of the family with this family name was Daniel Jude,
member of the Cologne law court in 1218, married to a wife sometimes
called Sela, sometimes Sihardis.

Sihardis is a very rare german female name - but the name Sela is a
mystery. This woman is the only person called Sela in medieval Cologne
and - as it seems - in medieval Germany. And she is the only person with
two different names.

It seems that the name "Sela" was understood as the german word "sele" =
"soul". But this word was usually not used as a person's name.

There are two questions: Why got the non-jewish patrician family in the
early 13th century the family name "Jude" - and how can we explain the
name Sela?

Some researchers have proposed that Sela might have been a converted
Jewish woman; see:

Groten, Manfred: Köln im 13. Jahrhundert. Gesellschaftlicher Wandel und
Verfassungsentwicklung. Köln, Weimar, Wien 1995 (Städteforschung, Reihe
A: Darstellungen 36), p. 154

Groten refers that in the middle ages, the words "Seligkeit" and "Selde"
(as translation of "Simcha") were used for Jewish women - and he writes,
maybe "Sele" (soul) might have been a Jewish name, too.

Sela's son, grandson and further descendants were called "Alexander" - a
very rare name in medieval Cologne, too.

My question to the GerSiggers:

Is there any reference for a Jewish name "Sela" in the middle ages (or
for the yiddish or hebrew equivalent of "soul")? If yes, where and when?

Was "Alexander" used in medieval Jewish families in Germany?

Thanks for any ideas. Regards,

Tobias A. Kemper, Germany, tobias.kemper@web.de

BOOK CITE - Udenheim (south of Mainz) and other Selztalgemeinden (nearby communities) #germany

John Paul Lowens <jplowens@...>
 

I have been searching for details of Jewish life and my STRAUS direct
ancestors in the little town of Udenheim for 50 years. With thanks to
GerSIG friend Renate Rosenau in nearby Alzey, I've just found a book
containing everything I had learned in those 50 years and ten times
more.

I don't yet have complete information. This is a first alert about the book:

"Die juedischen Bewohner der Selztalgemeinden und Ihrer Nachbardoerfer"
published within the past few years. The author is Walter Schwamb in
55278 Koengernheim.

If, like me, you have been seeking Jewish ancestors in that area, the
book may be helpful.

Udenheim ( *** not Undenheim ***) is located 28.6 miles SW of
Frankfurt am Main at 49 52' N 08 10' E. According to Wikipedia.de, the
postal code is 55288 and population 1,335 in 2011. It's in the
(county) Landkreis: Alzey-Worms in the present German state /
Bundesland: Rheinland-Pfalz. I believe that this region was considered
part of Hessen at one time in the past.

I'm not always successful using the search tools at the Leo Baeck
Institute website. But my attempts to find any reference to Udenheim,
historian - author Walter Schwamb or Selztal at LBI on line yielded nothing.

The title page of Walter Schwamb's book lists the following towns. The
names are spelled here with V+e replacing vowels with two dots above.

Hahnheim Selzen Friesenheim Koerngernheim Undenheim mit
Schornsheim Udenheim Dalheim and Mommenheim

If you are sure that you have ancestors >from any of these towns, I'll
reply to clear questions about this book. Include the family names
you're seeking and dates that you think your relatives lived in this region.

A complete citation with publisher name and ISBN number (if any) will
follow as soon as possible.
