Steven Taubman <taubman@...>
 

I have posted a copy of the back of a postcard that appears to have
writing in Yiddish. I would like a direct translation of the back of
this postcard, but even a loose translation would be greatly
appreciated. I believe that the front of the postcard has a photo of
Rose SPERLING >from Lodz, pictured along with two children, Jani and
Susi.

The postcard is on ViewMate at the following address:

Dear Genners,
When requesting a translation, please specify the language in the
subject line. Of course, in cases where you don't know, you cannot do it.
However,it is annoying to find the language listed in the contents only.

Re: Jews of German origin living in the Ukraine #germany

Jules Levin
 

-----Original Message-----
Also, keep in mind that many of the people we're talking about didn't
use Latin letters in their writing. The Cyrillic and Hebrew alphabets
were far more likely to be used, especially in the Russian Empire.
In Congress Poland Polish written in Latin letters was used for official
recording until sometime in the 1860's. Rabbis who wanted to be official
recorders had to make the transition to Russian, and doubtless knew both
Latin and Cyrillic. Most Jews I would guess knew neither. But by the time
many young Jews in large towns were going to secular Russian schools
(after c. 1900?) Latin letters would have been as familiar as Cyrillic,
since the Latin alphabet was taught in Russian grammar school >from an
early date.
So
the names in question might have been spelled in our alphabet for the
very first time on the occasion of the purchase of a steamship ticket,
or even when boarding the boat--almost certainly in a German-speaking
port. And thus the spelling they used might have been more
German-looking than otherwise.
Finally, SHLUGLAIT is not a name I've encountered in connection with
Germans, Jewish or otherwise. There's exactly one in the German phone
book--and based on the spelling (SHLUGLEYT), she's not German--probably
from the former Soviet Union.
Not >from the USSR but most likely a Baltic German. In fact the -AIT, -EYT
is a common Baltic suffix, found in both Old Prussian and Lithuanian
(Lithuanian suffix -ietis is the same). It is an agent suffix like -nik
in Russian. Balticists have observed that half the German refugees
from East Prussia in 1945 had surnames of Old Prussian [a Baltic language]
origin, and in fact as a Balticist I am noticing them all the time
among Americans whose ancestors came >from "Germany".

Locating family records from Lebanon? #france

arielvfu@...
 

Our grandmother was born in Lebanon in 1933, she left when
she was a year old her father was a French citizen who was
born in France and moved to the Middle East.
he died shortly after my grandmother's birth in 1933-1934

we wish to find documents about them since all of the papers
they took >from Lebanon with them when they left were burned
unfortunately

Is there a way to retrieve documents? (and I must point out that
contacting Lebanon is not a realistic option these days)

We have only the names and surnames of the parents (plus my
grandmother's date of birth) We know they lived in Beirut.

Thank you
