Re: Yehuda Leib the meaning #rabbinic

The subject of double names has been discussed at length in the main
JewishGen list. (you can find the messages in the archives.)

The particular combination of Yehudah and Leib (and Arye) stems >from
Jacob's blessing (Gen. 49:9) which compares Yehudah to a lion, and
therefore the name Yehudah is often combined with Arye, which is the
Hebrew word for lion, and Leib, which is Yiddish for lion, and other
variations such as Leon, Leo, etc.

Some people will even back-correct Arye or Leib to Yehudah, assuming
that that is/was their "proper" Jewish name, which may or may not be
the case.

ps. "Latzi" (properly spelled Laci) is a diminutive of the Hungarian
name Laszlo (Leslie), and has no connection to lion.

Re: Yehuda Leib the meaning #rabbinic

Ashkenazi names often consist of two or three parts, usually a Hebrew
name and a secular name. Animal names were popular in the communities
that Jews lived in in the Middle Ages, so you find names like Wolf,
Leib, and Ber (Berl). There are customary combinations "kinui'm" such
as Judah Leib (Yehudah Leib) and sometimes even Judah Leib Aryeh. In
this case, it is because of the association of the lion with the tribe
of Yehudah. Other common combinations are Tzvi Hirsh and Dov Ber.
There are many good accounts of these naming patterns, which were
common for males and also could be found to a lesser extent for
females. Understanding kinnu'im turns out to be very important since
records might have both names or one or the other.

Judah Leib is also very common in our family and there are generations
of Leib, Leo, Lawrence, Larry. Tsalko (Calko - Betzalel) was also
popular in my family and similarly there are generation of Tsalko and
Charles.

Jewish Gen has a good account of kinnui'm somewhere I believe and of
course Alexander Beider's Dictory of Ashkenazic Given Names is the
gold standard for understanding given names.

Haplogroup V #dna

So far all I know >from having my mt DNA tested several years ago by
Family DNA is that I belong to Haplogroup V, dubbed the "Clan of
Velda," which according to some of the literature means that my
matrilineal ancestor was descended >from the smallest of the clans of
the seven daughters of Eve. That to (skeptical) me, sounds like
science fantasy! I'd like to know how that was determined.

According to the migrations map (as well as the accompanying
literature) I received >from Family DNA my direct maternal line is
found mainly in Spain and Finland, >from which I've inferred, maybe
erroneously, that at some point they encountered a Jewish tribe and
"converted" to Judaism (unless - going even further back in time,
Haplogroup V comprised or was descended >from one of the lost tribes
and so originated in what was once known as Palestine. According to
the Haplogroup V web site "Velda" lived about 16-17,000 years ago in
northeastern Spain. Reflecting on the physical appearance of my
maternal ancestors (recent generations, that is) I like to think
that they were Sephardim.

I'd be interested in hearing >from other Haplogroup V members what
they have learned about their genetic family history.

I would like to add that although I've contacted lots of individuals
who are HVR11 (high resolution matches) so I've not found any who are,
so say, third or fourth generation removed, which has been a big
disappointment.

Yizkor Book Project, April 2012 #latvia

Lance Ackerfeld <lance.ackerfeld@...>
 

Shalom,

Once again, during the last month, the Yizkor Book Project grew in all sorts
of directions. This growth includes the completion of the "The Martyrdom and
Extermination of the Jews in Kielce During World War II" project and the
addition of the whole of the Hebrew section >from the Vishnevets, Ukraine
Yizkor Book, plus substantial additions to many of our other projects
currently in progress.

You will see that a number of new books >from the Bessarabian region have
been added and we are now looking for people to take on the coordination of
these important projects. In general, if you would like to become involved
in these or any of our other projects, I would definitely like to hear from
you. No defined time commitments required - you are the one to generously
volunteer some of your free time and you can decide how much time you are
able to devote to these endeavors.

Once again, this past month, a number of necrologies have been placed online
from a wide range of communities - >from Estonia, Satu Mare, Romania, Mlyniv,
Ukraine and Thessaloniki, Greece. These necrologies are not only a token way
of immortalizing the names of Jews killed in the Holocaust, they also can
provide other important genealogical details like dates, family
relationships, professions and so on and for these reasons, we do place
great efforts into preparing these substantial lists.

I am happy to note that the Yizkor Books in Print Project is well under way
and awareness and sales are growing steadily. If you are interested in
knowing more about the project, what books are available and where they may
be purchased, especially in locations outside the US, you will find all this
