Bear in mind that the between WWI and II, Czechoslovakia included
lands that are now in Ukraine as well as present-day Slovak and Czech
Republics. The place you're searching could be Iske, formerly in the
Kapos district of Ung megye (county) Hungary, which is now Izkovce,
Ukraine. In order to narrow down the location, would be helpful if
you could provide more clues such as surname, other location where
individual lived, etc. etc.

We are now wondering if there are any more relatives who settled in
England >from Zheludok. The names we know on that side of the family
are PORETSKY, WEINSTEIN and SNEROVICH. Although we do not know daughters
married names, or names that have been anglicised.

We would be interested to know of any other families who originated in
Zheludok. Sadly most of them still there were killed and buried in a mass
grave in that shtetl. The few the Nazis saved to work for them were
eventually sent to Auschwitz, but I personally know of a couple who
escaped and spent the rest of the war in the resistance (I believe)
with the Bielskis, and now live in Israel.
Jean,

There are in JGFF database 39 entries by 25 researchers inquiring about the
families >from Zheludok.
Researching sunames >from this town are including WEINSTEIN and PORETSKY
(PORESKY).

Resarchers should periodically check JGFF database to examine new additions

I came across an ITS record with a town name of Iska, Czechoslovakia.
Does anyone know where this is?
This was most probably Iske, Hungarian pre-Trianon name of village
Izkovce (near Velke Kapuscany) in Slovakia.

ps. I could be wrong

Meaning of First Name "Jeko" from Poland 1920s #poland

msteinberg2008@...
 

Hello All,

I'm trying to determine the origin of the male first name "Jeko" as it
belonged to one of my relatives >from Lublin, Poland but I have not so
far met with success. I have noticed there are at least 27 other entries
in the province of Lublin alone for males named "Jeko" in the
JRI-Poland database. I suspect it is a Yiddish name, but I can't confirm
it and I'm not certain if it 'pairs' up with a given Hebrew name.

If anyone can advise on the origin of this name I would be most
grateful.

I can tell you that I have looked in Rabbi Shmuel Gorr's book "Jewish
Personal Names", Dr. Beider's "Handbook of Ashkenazic Given Names and
Their Variants" and JewishGen's own Given Names Database, with little
success.

I should say, Dr. Beider does have entries for Jekof and Jekowka as
being dimunitives of Yakev or in Hebrew Jacob, but this does not accord
with my knowledge of my "Jeko" relative's possible Hebrew name, given
Ashkenazic naming practices, i.e. his father was named Jacob.

Thanking you in advance,

translation help (Lippman ELIAS, Wolf ISRAEL) #germany

lawfrank@...
 

Hello. Can someone please help me decipher the two death certificates
I posted on the Viewmate site (VM 14221 and VM 14222)?

One is of my great-great-great-great grandfather Lippman Elias (died 18th of
Pluviose in the year 12 of the Republic, Feb. 8, 1804). The other is
of my great-great-great-great grandfather Wolf Israel (died age 63, 3rd
of Ventose, Third Year of the Republic (Feb 21, 1795).

Both are >from Alsace -- the former >from the town of Hochfeld and the
latter >from the town of Uhrwiller.
Both are very hard to read, so much so that I am not even sure of the
language. Although this was part of France, it looks more like German,
leading me to wonder if it's Alsatian. Thank you.

more on Marx GUGGENHEIMER brick wall #germany

Dottie Miller
 

A sharp Genner looked up the family in the book, "Juden in Breisach", by
Hans David Blum that details the Jewish families of Breisach,
Baden-Wurttemberg, Germany. Mr. Blum wrote that My GUGGENHEIMER
ancestors came >from Waldshut, near Basel, Switzerland, which confirms
the oral history told by present-day descendants who lived in Ihringen,
Baden-Wurtemberg, till they were deported by the Nazis in 1940.
Waldshut, I am told, was closed to Jewish settlement during my ancestor
Marx GUGGENHEIMER's lifetime but neighboring Tiengen was not.

So, does anyone know how to access Tiengen life event records >from the
late 1600s to the mid 1700s?
