TSIRLIN 1908 #general

Udi Cain
 

Dear JewishGenners.

While compiling my book about my family (mainly Chaikin), I found two post
cards >from Lausanne, >from 1908, written by my grandfather's cousin, Paulina
Wolodarski.
The post cards were written in Russian, but near her signature, there exist
a second signature, in Hebrew, Achiezer Tsirlin (Alef Chet Yud Ain Zain
Resh - Tzadi Yud Resh Lammed Yud Nun).
There are two post cards, >from the same place and person but to different
people, both bears the same signature.
Paulina Wolodarski, was originally >from Yekaterinoslav (Denieperpretrovsk),
the Ukraine.
At 1908 she was about 20 years old.

Any clue? (also with regard to Wolodarski / y)

Regards >from El Kuds. Udi Cain.

Yes, I had a great Aunt who was born Bashe Bartnovski in Zabludow Poland.
I also had a great uncle Birshe Bartnovski who was the last Jewish
blacksmith in Zabludow. Would anyone know if these could be the same
basic name just one feminine and one masculine? Also any idea what this
name means?

Would anyone know whether the name Basha or Bashe was generally a man's
name?
No, it's actually a woman's name. It's a transliteration of the Hebrew
name Bas-yah, meaning "daughter of God" (and pronounced Batya in modern or
sephardi Hebrew).

Jewish oral tradition (but not the Bible itself) gives the name of the
Pharaoh's daughter who raised Moses as "Bithia", a Graecized version of
Batya. The name Bithia was in fact used for this character in the movie
"The Ten Commandments" -- showing that the film's producer or director had
done their midrashic homework!

British Army Records

The British Army units that served with the Chindits retained their normal
record keeping and administrative responsibilities, and the records are
archived in the Ministry of Defence.

The surviving records of all officers and soldiers who joined the British
Army and who were discharged after 1922 are stored in the Ministry of
Defence Record Office CS(R)2b at Bourne Avenue, Hayes, Middlesex UB3 1RS.
This includes territorial, volunteer, militia and home-defence forces
and some colonial forces. The MOD Record Office also held the WWI records
which have been progressively released to the Public Record Office over
the past five years. Information on the service records of the individual
may be obtained by application to: Ministry of Defence Records Office
CS(R)2, Bourne Avenue, Hayes, Middlesex UB3 1RF, United Kingdom.
{Telephone ++44 0208 573 3831}. They will send you an application form
that will require a search fee of BP 25 per person being enquired after.
Payment of the search fee does not guarantee a successful result. The MOD
now requires applicants to certify that they are the individual concerned
or their next of kin, together with a copy of the death certificate, as
appropriate. The form asks for details of the other kin between the
enquirer and the subject. This recent preoccupation seems to have arisen
out of concerns caused by the Data Protection Act 1999, required by
European Union legislation. There is reportedly a long delay in getting
the response, the result will now be a statement of service and not copies
of the original documents.

Marcu Pincu LEVENTER b. Podu Turcului (now Bacau county) #general

My great great aunt Haia or Chaya daughter of Simcha Leib WIND and Mariam
of Braila, Romania married Marcu Pincu Leventer of Podu Torcului (now
Bacau county) in 1896. I believe that they settled in Podu Torcului. They
may have emigrated to the US. I am looking for decendents or any
information about them. If anyone has Leventer relatives in Podu Turcului,
Bacau County or Braila, I would be very interested in sharing information
with them.

confirmation with a file number.

He then posts a notice to the JewishGen Discussion Group (or SIG of his

choice) stating that he has uploaded a photo to VM. He requests someone

knowledgeable in Hebrew to visit the VM website, view his graphic
(File No. X) and translate it for him.

An eager reader will be quick to provide feedback. Eager reader responds

with translation. Riddle solved. Jack adds new info to his tree.

Majdan #galicia

moishe@langsam.com <moishe@...>
 

Hi,
I am turning to our group in the hopes of finding a resource to help in my
research.

Nechuma Malka was the daughter of R' David Spira (1804 - 1874) and
granddaughter to R' Hersh Mylech Spira (aka the Bnei Yissochur). According
to tradition, she married the Rabbi of Majdan.

Would anybody know who this Rabbi was? Is there anybody researching this
town? In the JEWISHGEN family finder there seems to be TWO towns by this
name, one in Poland and one in Ukraine. If eithr one was not part of
the Galicia, please forgive my posting this question to the group at all.

Thanks!
