Re: HATCHWELL was HACHUEL - origin of the anglicised Sephardic name #general

Mathilde Tagger <tagger@...>
 

Dear Celia and all,

We now have the name HACHUEL to add to our Sephardic family tree and this may
attract newcomers to the fold. Please read this tragic tale:
http://www.jewishencyclopedia.com/view.jsp?artid=29&letter=H
and if you read Spanish you will be able to decipher this about Jacques
HACHUEL: http://www.nuevorden.net/judios.html
---------->
The HATCHWELL (anglicized form) of HATCHUEL or HATUEL is a well known
surname in Northern Morocco, especially in Tetuan and Tangiers with roots in
medieval Spain.
Abraham Laredo, author of "Les noms des Juifs du Maroc' (Madrid,
1978)[Surnames of Moroccan Jews] , as well as Joseph Toledano, author of
Les noms de famille juifs d'Afrique du Nord (Jerusalem, 1999) [Jewish
Surnames of North Africa] both bring the etymology of the surname and also
the biographies of the famous Hatchuels among whom is the 14 years old girl
Solica Hatchuel. In 1834 the Sultan of Morocco ordered beautiful Solica
Hatchuel's execution in the public square of Fez for rejecting the prince of
Morocco's offer of marriage and refusing to be converted to Islam.
For the full story put her name on google search engine.

Shalom,
Mathilde Tagger

Descendants of Samuel PIZA #general

esther morag <marriana@...>
 

I am looking for the descedants of Samuel PIZA (1827-1885) and wife
Bedita ASCOLI (1840).I think their daughter was called Hanna(Bettina).
He was born in St.Thomas (V.I),and she in Hamburg.
Judging >from the descendants names , the late Mary RICHRDSON and their
children John and Bettina, I assume that they live in the U.S.A.

Uploaded Families into FTJP #ukraine

Linda Shefler
 

I am excited to advise you that a few weeks ago I uploaded close to 7000
names into the FTJP. I would say that 85% of them are definite family
members; the remainder are families I have done extensive research on and
that I strongly believe are connected to my family.

The following are just some of the surnames that are >from the Shtetl of:
Fastov/Pavoloch/Belaya Tserkov.

SCHNAPARSKI/SNOPARSKY/NULMAN/SHERMAN/SACHS/SALGANEK/ROSENFELD/KUPAT/BARASCH/
SOFORENKO/KOTLER/KOSTOWETSKY/COSTAWETSKY/MEDNICK/BISHKOVSKY/WINAKOR/WINOKUR/
KAGAN/COHEN/BRODY/JANKIELEWSKI/TOPOROFSKY/RABINOWITZ/GURALNIK.

Many of these families ended up in Fall River, MA; Providence, RI and
Philadelphia, PA after immigrating, but please don't let that stop you if
you have families with these surnames >from the above mentioned Shtetl who
didn't settle in Fall River, Providence or Philadelphia. Or if you have
families >from those Shtetl who ended up in Providence or Fall River whose
names aren't mentioned, please take a peek and see if there might be updates
for them.

I am researching the following surnames >from the vicinity of Zinkov:
SILVERMAN/ZILBERMAN/APPLEBAUM/APFELBAUM/GREENBERG/PLOTKE/PLOTKER

And for something really obscure, if anyone if familiar with a Rabbi
Mordechai >from the area of Zinkov, probably born about 1800 and possibly the
father of Ze'ev Wolf. Not much to go on, but it's all I've got!!

My research number is 2088; I hope that you will search through the FTJP and
contact me if you see something that you believe is related to your family.
And remember, there are many other names besides the ones I listed.

All the best,
Linda Silverman Shefler

Eric Yitzchak COHEN #general

jay Lenefsky <hotdog@...>
 

Dear One and All:

As other people have mentioned in the recent past. There is a radio program here
in Israel that helps people reunite with lost family and friends.

Today a mother spoke. She is an Israeli who lives in NY (Queens).
She came to Israel to look for her son. She is not sure if he is indeed in
Israel or not. It seems that they had an argument and soon there after
the son broke off all contact with his mother.

If anyone knows of Eric Yitzchak COHEN age 27 , >from Main St. Queens; NY.
Please ask him to contact his mother or his sister.

All the best,

Jay Lenefsky -Israel

RABINOWITZ/VICH (RUBIN) from Chopovichi #ukraine

SarahRose Werner <swerner@...>
 

I'm researching the RABINOWITZ/VICH family >from Chopovichi, a bit
west of Malyn and east of Korosten. It used to be in the Radomyshl
district of the Kiev gubernia, but now it's in the Zhitomir
oblast. Some family members also used the last name RUBIN.

My great-grandfather Herschel married his first cousin Hinda. (I'm
spelling the names as my aunt does.) Herschel's mother's name was
Anna, Hinda's mother's name was Fagle. I don't know their last names.

Eight children survived to adulthood. Six of them emigrated during
the years after 1917. Abraham, Hyman, Anna (my grandmother) and
Itzhak were able to get into the States. I know that Anna and Itzhak
emigrated together, but I *think* Abraham and/or Hyman did so
earlier, either together or separately.

Sarah and Brandel were not able to get into the States due to quotas
and went to Argentina instead. Joseph and Buzek did not emigrate and
are believed to have been killed during WWII.

Searching GOMPERTZ/GOMPATZ London and Essex 1750 to 1820 #general

Helen Sim <helenmsim@...>
 

I am searching for a GOMPATZ girl who married into my Toudup/Young family
between 1750 and 1820. The family lived in the East End of London and around
Romford, Lambourne and Chigwell Essex. Apparently someone in my family
married the daughter of a French Jewish sea captain; the name Gompatz
appears as a middle name for family members born at Lambourne Essex between
1830 and 1850.

Wloclavek? #general

Eve Line Blum <eve.line.blum@...>
 

In a French naturalization file, two spouses are said "born in
"Volkoviez" and "Blodovie". Taking in account the French
pronunciation, I believe that's both are mispellings for Wloclavek.
Who can help ? Thanks in advance.

Re: Given name: Lewis #general

Diane Jacobs <thegenie@...>
 

Yes, and be aware that many people used both names
at different times. I have a Julius Louis Shapiro
(Yehuda Lieb) and finding his records is most difficult
because with Shapiro being a common surname, and I also
have to search for him under Julius , Yehuda, Louis, Lewis
and Lieb.

Yehuda (Judah), Arye, or Leib. A combination is also common of Yehuda
Leib or Arye Leib.

Looking for Dvora GLASER #galicia

arie meir
 

Hi to all of you

I decided to give up. It is now more than fifteen years that I am
looking for my grandfather's daughter Dvora GLASER but with no
response.

It is now my last try and here are the details:

My grandfather Chaim GLASER lived in Przemysl before the second
world war.

He had a daughter called Dvora (Dora or Dova), who was born in 1927.

The last time my family heard >from them was in 1939.

Chaim Glaser was married to my grandmother Helena-Chaya in Vienna.

In the early twenties he got divorced, left Vienna and moved to
Przemysl (Poland). He got married a second time in the year 1926 to
Rachella STOLZBERG and had this one daughter.

In 1939 he was about 43 years old and she was 12 years old.

In case any one of the readers can help me finding what happened to
them please be so kind to inform me to your knowledge. The
information in "Yad Vashem" is just a guess and not based on any
information.
