Does anybody know who was called the "Gaon of Zelechow" in Poland?
On 2006.06.30, M. Griffel <barmag@...> responded:

You might be referring to Rabbi Shimon ENGEL, known as R' Shimon
Zelichower [...]

Naharei Aish, and I have a copy.

Searching the Mt. Zion Cemetery database #galicia

Steven Lasky <steve725@...>
 

Greetings all,

I have created a page on my website that suggests the best ways to do a
search on the Mt. Zion Cemetery database. If you are having problems with
your searches, it might pay to take a look at it. The link to this page is
www.museumoffamilyhistory.com/erc-scdb.htm .

If you are looking for all the burial entries for a certain surname without
exact knowledge of where they are buried, I would urge you to search all
four available cemetery databases, i.e. those of Mts. Zion, Hebron, Carmel
and Moriah. These databases combined contain information on over half a
million burials.

I am hoping that the searchable databases for Mts. Judah and Ararat will be
created and put online before the August conference. I will let you know
when they are.

As a side note, July 1st marked the one-year anniversary of my virtual
museum website. I am proud of what I have accomplished and am thankful to
all those who have graciously have helped me along the way. I have just
revamped many pages on my site and have added new ones. I hope that you like
what I have done. The best is yet to come.

Re: BIEGELEISEN of Mielec and HORMANN of Wieliczka #galicia

Paul Nadler <pnadler@...>
 

My grandmother's maiden name was BEIGELEISEN, and was married to Solomon
LONG. I do not know the name of the town where she originated (yet). Her name
was Annie (Chana), and her father's name was Pinchas. Her mother's name (I
do not have the maiden name), was Hinda. She had a sister Goldie.

Does any of this sound familiar?

Please let me know.

Seeking Teitelbaum - Detroit area #poland

Sharon Brown
 

I recently learned that my grandmother brought two
brothers over >from the Cmeilow area of Poland after
World War II to Toronto, Canada. They were about 18
to 20 years of age at the time, with the surname
Teitelbaum. They would have been born between
1921-1929 in or near Cmeilow Poland. They were
housepainters. According to an aunt, they left
Toronto and moved to Detroit. Apparently, they also
either changed or shortened their surname.
Any information would be welcome. Please respond to
me privately. thankyou

Re: 1899 CT City Directory - Define the Meaning of "F" ?? #general

Nancy Ring Kendrick <ringgenealogy@...>
 

Sincere thanks to all of you who replied to my original posting!

For those of you who are interested the "F" means Fairfield.
The abbrevation list is in the very beginning of the directory just before
the "A's"

I firmly believe that the two people listed are our ancestors. What
are the odds of those two given names showing up in a record together
without being related? Leopold RING married Regina KISH in 1900, so
I believe Leopold was setting up his own home for he and his wife,
therefore he was rem. (removed) to Bridgeport. Leopold was
Clementine's brother.

As for Clementine not using her married name DZIEKIEWICZ, we have
learned that her married surname "can" mean RING in English!

Thanks to all of you!

Jewish Surnames from before 1800 #lithuania

Ziegelman <zieg_exp@...>
 

How did Jews who had inherited surnames, like Oppenheim, Heilbron,
Alperovich, Halperin, Galperin, Speyer, Epstein, Horovitz, keep these
surnames in places and time periods when surnaming was not the practice?
I'm thinking of 18th century Jews in Lithuania that had one of the above
surnames, like my Kurenets Alpert/Alperovich family.
Another example that comes to mind is the case of the Baal Shem Tov. If I
remember correctly, he had one of these surnames: Halperin.

Kind regards,

Dear Danzig-genners,

I just wanted to draw your attention to
The Center for Research on Dutch Jewry's website:
http://shum.huji.ac.il/~dutchjew/genealog/ashkenazi/index.htm

Where there is a number of DANZIGERs listed and more or less information
about the persons listed, some - eg Adriaantje mirjam Joseph DANZIGER -
was born in Danzig, others were born in Amsterdam, but judging >from the
surname they probably have some connection to Danzig.
