Yehuda is spelled with a final ALEPH and not a final HEY #galicia

Hinda Solomon
 

The reason names are spelled with an aleph instead of a hey is that they
are based on Aramaic spelling.

My great grandmother Hinda SELKOWITZ (ZELKOWICZ) who was born in Klobuck,
Poland and buried (1916) in the Washington Cemetery also has a final aleph
at the end of her name on her gravestone. I spell mine with a hey.

Look at Chad Gadya >from the Passover Haggadah and the Mourner's Kaddish
for a proliferation of words ending in aleph.

Re: Is Early 20th. Century London Directory Of Physicians / Database Accessable? #unitedkingdom

Dear Richard

I don't know whether there is an accessible database of doctors, but if he
qualified he would have been registered with the British Medical
Association. This would cover the whole of Britain. A quick search of the
internet would probably provide you with an answer or at least who to
contact.

Another possible source of information could be the Wellcome (think I've
spelt it correctly) Institute. They do have a large archive of medical
information.

There is also local directories available which cover every type of trade,
but for these you would need to know where he was living or practicing.

Good luck

Dear Community,


I just learned that Otto MAY was a medical student at
the time of the 1901 census. His information is given
below. Is there any accessable directory of London or
British physicians,on-line database or CD,which will
have information allowing me to determine whether or
not Otto MAY became a medical doctor in the early
20th. century and if so,information about his
specialization and professional practice?

PEISCHEL, PEITCHEL, PEITSCHEL, PITCHEL from Austria #galicia

Kathleen Pitchel <kpitchel@...>
 

I am researching Myer Wolf Peischel who emigrated >from Lemburg in 1900. He
was >from the village of Nowosiolka, Austria. Myer's date of birth is around
1857. His wife was Chaje and they had eight children--Israel, Jente, Tene,
Kalmen, Chaim, Beile, Schmil and Dwora. Myer had three
brothers--Jacob, Harry and Isaac. He had one sister but I do not know
her name. Myer's parents were Israel Moishe and Natalie.

One of Myer's daughters listed Przegnojow, Austria (possibly near
Przemyslany) as her place of residence. Samuel Pitchel (Isaac's son and
Myer's nephew) had Therespol, Austria listed as his place of birth on his
naturalization papers dated 1900.

Would be interested in hearing >from anyone researching the above names or
who has information on the places.

Thank you for your time.

Last message from the old JewishGen server! #general

With this message and the digest that goes out just after midnight tonight
Houston time, JewishGen is retiring its old Lyris list server that has served
us, sometimes not so faithfully, for the last few years. After the digests
go out tonight, the server will be shut down and its contents transferred to
a new server with a new version of the Lyris software.

There will be a (brief, we hope) period tomorrow, Saturday, when we will not
be able to moderate and you will receive no messages >from any JewishGen
lists. Then we expect to be back doing our job as before, only with better
software and hardware backing us up.

If all goes according to plan, you will see no change. But if you pay close
attention over the next several months, you may notice fewer days when no
digest goes out, fewer times when you try to change your subscription
settings and can't get into the server. As moderators, we expect to notice
the improvements more directly, with more reliable and faster communications,
making our jobs as volunteer moderators easier.

The other side of this equation is that the new software license and hardware
cost money. If you want to be sure that we will still be here with the data
and services you rely on, next year and the year after and the year after
that, and you want to help make sure that the next time our software becomes
obsolete and our hardware creaky and unreliable, we can once again upgrade to
what we need to give you what you need, you know how to help.

Go to

and make your tax-deductible contribution today.

And we'll see you soon on the new Lyris server!

A mention of an early Scottish Jew, >from the Inverness Courier (Scotland)
in 1830:

3 March - "The baptism of a converted Jew, which took place in the Inverness
Gaelic Church, caused some local excitement. The ceremony was performed by
the Rev Mr Clark. The man was a native of Warsaw, named Ezekiel or Caspar
Auerback, and was a hawker of stationery and other articles."

Rebbe, R' Yaakov HORWITZ; >from their marriage until 11 Iyor 5587
[the young couple lived in Ropszyce (where, presumably, his in-laws

ABD of Kozhnits in 5609 (1849) and retained that position until his
death in Kisleiv 5622 (1861).

The son, Yaakov Yechiel, succeeded his father as ABD & Admor of
Kozhnits at the age of 16 or 17. He drowned in the River Stav in a
tragic accident on 30 Sivon 5626 (1866) before reaching his 20th

Hi everyone,

I'm posting this for a new listmember who's having trouble getting her
e-mail to conform to the right format. She's looking for information on
the REICHARD family >from Hungary -- specifically, if there were any
priests, Kohanim, in the family. She's seen the JG archives. Any clues,
websites, or other suggestions are welcome. And is there maybe a website
or other resource for photos of Hungarian tombstones?

Please send all answers to me and I will forward them, or send them to
