Re: German Jewish Folkways - On or OFF Topic for GerSig Forum #germany

Dear Moderator John Lowens and GerSig,

I got Donn's letter as well by private email and and have already written back
to tell him how right on target I think his letter was.

I think that it's the perfect solution and I will be happy to help with the
summaries if needed.

Shabbat Shalom to all.

Elizabeth Levy in Israel <ealevygen@hotmail.com>

MODERATOR NOTE: Mr. Devine's message was posted earlier today 14 May 2004.
It reflects the sentiments of the several GerSig members who sent us comments
on this matter.

In the days ahead I will post a message confirming how "Folkways" messages which
do not directly relate to conventional genealogy research methods will be
handled by the GerSig Moderators.

Many thanks to Michael Bernet, Werner Frank, Elizabeth Levy, Donn Devine and
Martha Lev-Zion for your thoughtful comments. Mr. Devine's message seemed to
summarize the matter most clearly which is why only that message was posted to
the list. All of your suggestions are greatly appreciated. Please continue

1) Heh - Aleph - Vav - Dalet - Kuf

Any help would be greatly appreciated.

TIA,

Dear Genners,

My father's family name is REBENSTOCK. The family lived in Podhajce and
Zlotniki and other nearby towns in Southeastern Galicia.

I have various family records >from AGAD showing the name REBENSTOCK spelled
REWENSTOCK, REWINSTOCK and several other variations. I would like to know
if the letters *B* and *W* were interchangeable in their usage.

Thanks for your help.

Sylvia,

Many Hebrew consonants (e.g. feh/peh, beit/veit, etc.) are not distinguishable
from one another because the distinguishing characteristics are not
specified.

Russian, or rather Cyrillic alphabet, is based on the Greek with some
borrowing >from Hebrew.
There is also noticeable interchangeability between "B" and "V" in some
common Russian first names:

Beniamin - Veniamin
Barbara - Varvara

On several birth records I've received >from AGAD, the birth month is written

Thank you for your help.

I also have not been able to find a marriage record for my great-uncle,
