Signficance of changing names to "Dan" and "Zilla" #germany

Judith Elam
 

I have two unrelated sets of relatives on my tree, both of whom changed
their first names to "Dan" and "Zilla" in 1938, as stated on their
respective Berlin marriage certificates. Both couples lived in Berlin.
Wilhelm BRAUN and his wife Hertha Hedwig PRINZ became known as Dan and Zilla
BRAUN on 8 December 1938. At the same time their adult son, who was born
Heinz BRAUN, became known as Denny or Dani BRAUN. All 3 were murdered at
Auschwitz. Similarly, Dip. Ing. Otto ROTHSCHILD and his wife Ella Johanna
JACOBY, became known as Dan and Zilla ROTHSCHILD on 13 December 1938. They
are buried in Cali, Colombia but their gravestones show their birth names,
not their changed names.

When I ran across the first couple, I thought this was strange. Then when I
ran across the 2nd couple, I wondered if there was some significance to
choosing these particular first names for a legal name change. And is the
timeframe - December 1938 - significant too for this name change?

I can e-mail the marriage certificates to anyone who is interested. They
can also be found on Ancestry.com.

Moshe and Paula from Orla Update #germany

Eli Rabinowitz
 

MODERATOR NOTE: Eli Rabinowitz has created several German Jewish Community
Links web pages for the JewishGen Kehila Links project. Mr. Rabinowitz will
give a lecture about his Moshe and Paula research at the 2015 IAJGS Conference
in Jerusalem. =================>

Hi All
My research on Moshe and Paula, both >from Orla, Poland took a
dramatically turn this week, with updates >from both Canada and South Africa.

The narrative originated in Orla and ended suddenly in South Africa.

However, my research started 80 years later in Australia and has taken
me to Poland, Belarus, the Baltics, Israel, the UK, Germany, South
Africa and North America.

I share my experiences about the challenges of travelling and
researching in different archives and libraries. Top of the list was
visiting Belarus and the State Archives in Grodno.

This led me to start writing and managing KehilaLinks as a volunteer,
beginning with the Orla KehilaLink and now extending to cities as
diverse as Shanghai, Berlin, Kimberley and Perth, 24 in all:

Re: Jewish Life in Botosani #romania

T. Halpern
 

Hi Luc,

I have the book "Departures: Beyond Recognition" and I have read it. About
one-third of the novel is set in 19th Century Romania. The story begins in
Romania (in the town of Galati), moves to France, then back to Romania, and
finally back to France. IMHO, the story does give one an idea of what life
was Jewish life was like in Romania of that era.

To paraphrase another source (albeit unknown), "RTFB"!

Cheers!

To paraphrase Bibi N, better no book than a wrong book. I have not read
"Departures..." but just >from the publisher description below, I highly
doubt
one will get a good idea about Jewish life in 19th century
Moldavia/Romania. I am aware of only one book by G. Sternberg, a monograph
of Stefanesti, which could be of interest but it is mostly relevant to
post 1900.

I believe the best source of information are the entries in the YIVO
Encyclopedia of Jews in Eastern Europe, published in 2008.

Search for MAYER graves in NY #germany

Daniela Tobias <daniela.tobias@...>
 

We are searching for the graves of Sophia and Moses MAYER. They fled from
Muellenbach, Kaisersesch, Cochem-Zell to New York in May 1940.

They lived with their daughter Erna LEINHOS in the Bronx. Moses MAYER died
there on August 24, 1943 (adress: 922 Simpson street).

Sophia MAYER, nee TOBIAS died in Brookhaven, Suffolk County, in December
1962. Erna COSTAS was the only heiress. We have that information >from a
compensation file.

We don't know what happened to the other daughters Frieda and Selma MAYER,
who came to NY in 1929 and 1937.

Erna COSTAS died in Mc Lean, Fairfax, Virginia, on March 22, 2000. She
probably had no children and we don't know anything about her husband.

We'd appreciate very much if anybody of Bronx or Suffolk County could
watch out for Moses and Sophia's graves or provide any information about
the family.
