Names Meir Isaac and Yitzhak Isaac #general

Eva Lawrence
 

My guess would be that Meir and Yitzhak were both the sons of Isaac, i.e.
brothers. I've met the use of a father's name as surname without a 'ben' before.

DRAHOFF, CZAPLICKA #general

Patti Waitman-Ingebretsen <pattitwirler@...>
 

I am trying to help a friend with his father's side and hitting some brick walls.
The family story is that the grandfather changed his name when he moved >from
Poland circa 1900. The family thought bad men were looking for him.

William Wasyl DRAHOFF (any spelling) 1880 Minsk, Poland/Russia- 1919, Toronto,
Ontario, Canada m. 1904 Philadelphia, PA Frances Cecilia CZAPLICKA abt 1891 Poland-
aft 1944- where? (also m. to Frank OLESZESKI)
He was son of Alexander Alexi DRAHOFF (any spelling) & wife Julia lnu
She was was the daughter Stanley CZAPLICKA & Les CADIA

DRAHOFF children: Francis 1903 Philadelphia, Walter Alexander 1907 Toronto or
Philadelphia?, William Vincent 1912 York, Toronto, Edward 1916 Toronto,
Helen 1921 Ontario

We know that the name was not always DRAHOFF/DRAYHOFF/DREYHOFF etc. Could it
be the end of a previous name? if so, any suggestions? I am having a hard
time tracking and do not have World Ancestry access.

thanks,
Patti Waitman-Ingebretsen

International Jewish Genealogy Month - IGRA #general

Garri Regev
 

International Jewish Genealogy Month is during the Hebrew month of
Heshvan which corresponds this year to 25 October to 22 November 2014.

In Israel IGRA has three central activities to put in your calendar:

12 November at the National Library of Israel, Jerusalem: 13:30-18:30
- The topic of this half-day seminar is "Roots at the Front, Resources
for Historical Research Concerning WWI". The first part of the Seminar
will have parallel sessions in English and Hebrew. The second part
will be in Hebrew. Please follow the NLI link for further details and
registration. http://web.nli.org.il/sites/NLI/Hebrew/library/services/Genealogy_New/Pages/NLI--2014-11-12--Genealogy-conference.aspx
MODERATOR: https://tinyurl.com/l3swlvz

16 November at the Holon cemetery: 8:30-18:30 - IGRA joins MyHeritage
for a chance at history - documenting Israel's largest cemetery in one
day. Participants with a smart phone will begin the day at the
MyHeritage offices in Yehud. Following breakfast and an introduction
all will be transported by bus to the Holon cemetery. We'll work with
a lunch break until the late afternoon when transportation will be
provided back to the MyHeritage offices. Documenting cemeteries all
over the world is an important effort to allow access to the
tombstones and the important information they contain. Click here to
register! http://bit.ly/1oSNniR

26 November at Beit Hatfutsot, Tel Aviv: 16:30-20:00 - IGRA's Heshvan
Event. Each Heshvan IGRA has chosen to honor its many volunteers. We
want to acknowledge the essential work of our volunteers to make

will receive the Mathilde Tagger Award of Recognition for Volunteering
with the IGRA Databases. In addition, this year there are three
special awards that will be presented. Following the awards and
refreshments we will be showing the movie "I am Bialik" in the
presence of director Aviv Talmor. A short discussion will then take
place with Aviv. Please plan to be with us! (IGRA members 25 NIS,
guests 50 NIS)

Existence of Federal Hotel in Pretoria #southafrica

Roy Ogus <r_ogus@...>
 

According to a family story, my grandfather, Solomon Williams, was the proprietor
of the Federal Hotel in Pretoria during the early part of the 20th
Century. I haven't yet managed to confirm this story, or even find out any
details about the hotel. Does anyone know how I could find more
information about the hotel itself as well as my grandfather's relationship to the
hotel?

I haven't even been able to find a reference that proves the existence of the hotel itself
- I don't believe that it still exists today.

Thanks for any information.
