curious about paternal heritage #general

Cynthia Reimann <thereimanns@...>
 

My name is Cynthia. For a long time I have wanted to know more
about the ancestry of my father.

He died when I was 3 years old. My grandmother never really wanted
to talk about it much - I never did get a chance to ask her myself.
She passed away about 15 years ago.

Her maiden name was Zimmerman - perhaps at one time there was another
n at the end. My sister did get some information >from Grandma.
Grandma said her mother's maiden name was Levitze. I find absolutely
no people with the last name Levitze I am thinking the "e" should
not be there?

Grandma had step sisters and brothers also. So, that makes looking up
the family tree even more confusing as we are not sure about my Great
Grandma's first husband. I do know Grandma had relatives in Germany
that she went to visit when I was very young.

My sister had her saliva tested for a rough idea on where our ancestors
came from. My Grandma (Anne - I believer her actual name was Ana
Elizabetha or something like that) also had a brother Ted (Tidus or
Titus??) They both had dark hair and dark eyes.

So - I really don't know what to do next. Do you think I am on the
right track trying to research a Jewish heritage?

I would appreciate any suggestions,

Thank you, Cynthia Reimann

Re: Names: Shmerka vs. Shmuel #general

There isn't really a one-to-one relationship between Jewish names and
the names that our ancestors chose after they came to America. If
you look in the jewishgen archives, you will find an amusing thread
about "samification", where people with Jewish names other than
Samuel suddenly became "Sam" in america. (possibly because "Uncle
Sam" was the ultimate "American" name?)

Samuel, of course, is the English version of the biblical Hebrew name
Shmuel. with a little perseverance, I managed to coax the jewishgen
given names database into coughing up Shmerke (Shmerke, Shmerka,
what's the difference?) as a version of Shmarya, which is a
similar-sounding, but different, name than Shmuel (and comes >from an
entirely different Hebrew root).

But having said all that, nothing is impossible, and if you know
where they are buried, your best bet may be to try checking their
Hebrew names on their gravestones.

My great-grandmother's siblings were Sam and Max BROWN in the

My question: I have found records for Shmerka and Shmuel DOROGOI.
Are Shmerka and Shmuel two distinct names? Or are they variations
of a single name?

I know Shmuel would be changed to Sam. Is Shmerka simply a
variation of Shmuel or would it be possible that Shmerka became Max?
I'm trying to determine which records belong to whom.

Are Solotvino and Solotvin one and the same?
According to the 1906 ship's manifest, my Goldstein relatives came
from Solotvino in Austria.
So today, would this be Solotvino in Ukraine?

What Christine z"l had on her personal computer was personal. That she
shared it with us was a gift. I am trying to work things out for that
gift to be continued but you'll just have to be patient. There is no
obligation for anyone to share anything personal and this is a very
delicate matter.

I want to thank the group and especially Jan for informing us
about the above opportunity. I now have taken my husband's Collins
line back 2 generations and am touch with a person in Australia
with extensive knowledge for that branch. Thanks to her "The
Anderson Family", we now have some answers to some of the family
folk lore.
