looking for Aaron Perlmutter in Hollywood #poland

Marty Meyers <meyers01@...>
 

I'm looking to make contact with an Aaron Perlmutter (or family) who
submitted a page of testimony to Yad Vashem in 1983 for family members
from Przasnysz.
His address was a PO Box in North Hollywood,
California in 1983.

My great-great-grandfather's sister married a Perlemuter and
had children in Przasnysz.

I have been following the discussion about the name Chasha or Khasya. For
whatever
it means, my paternal family sometimes called me "Basia Kasha" which I (as
a child) always assumed was just a rhyme referring to my Yiddish name and
the popular food. Who knew that I was missing the larger picture, and the
name may have had a much deeper meaning!! (Or maybe they just meant it as
the simple rhyme that I heard.)

Barbara Zimmer
Barbara,

I remember this >from my kindrgarten rhymes:

Basia Kasia pyta Jasia... (Basia Kasia asking Jas')

Basia is a diminutive for Barbara, Kasia is dimininutive for
Catherine and Jas is diminutive for Jan.

Re: Help with Hebrew handwriting / ADLER birth registration #germany

Hi Justin, Chanukka Sameach!

On GerSig you wrote: "I would appreciate some help in deciphering the Hebrew name
of Heine ADLER as shown on VM5172 at ViewMate. [...]
Seemingly, Heine Wulff adopted the surname ADLER, so I suspect that the text reads:
?? bar Wolf (vav-vav-aleph-lamed-fey)." =======>

Surely the mother's name is "Edel".

The father's first name looks like "hey - ayin - noon - yod (or: vav) - khaf
sufit", which would be pronounced "Heni(k)h" or "Heno(k)h", a Judeo-German
form of "Chanoch". "Chanoch" was really sometimes Germanized to "Heine" in
north German territories, even though the majority of "Heine" name bearers
had the Hebrew name "Chayim". Later in the 19th century, both "Chanoch" and
"Chayim" became germanized to "Heinrich".

The second part of the name consists of "bar" and the patronymic "Wolf" or
"Wulf" ("Wulf" was the Low German variant form of the High German "Wolf".)

"Wolf" resp. "Wulf" were later mainly germanized to "Wilhelm", so that
"Heine Wulf ADLER" would become "Heinrich Wilhelm ADLER" (or in English:
Henry William ADLER). Kindest regards,

Lars E. Menk Berlin, Germany Lmenk@...

Any advice based on your own experience or of that of someone known to you
