The given name Mingye (Mingya, Mindya, Mindje) -- NE Hungary and northern Romania #hungary

Asparagirl
 

Does anyone know the derivation of the female given name "Mingye",
also spelled as Mingya and Mindya and Mindje? I have seen this name
in a lot of records >from Maramaros megye, Hungary (now Maramures
county, Romania and sub-Carpathian Ukraine), but I have never seen the
name used commonly elsewhere.

It does not appear to be derived >from Miriam, as there were many other
women in the same area who used Mariem (Marjem, Meriam, Merjem) and
Maria. In one case, I found a woman named Mingye born in 1883 who was
the mother of a girl named Maria born in 1902.

Is it a local variant of the Hebrew name Menuchah, the way Mindl or
Minya were common elsewhere? If so, what's up with the letter G
showing up in there?

Just curious...

(If you search the H-SIG list archives, you can find previous
discussions of the unusual popularity of the name Szosze / Szoze /
Szozje / Sosze / Sose used as the local variant of Shoshana in this
same area of the world.)

JGSLA - "It Takes a Shtetl" - An Afternoon of International Jewish Genealogical Research - Sunday, August 26, 2012 #general

Pamela Weisberger
 

The Jewish Genealogical Society of Los Angeles invites you to our next program:

Sunday, August 26, 2012 - 1:30PM - 4:15PM
University Synagogue - Klein Hall
11960 Sunset Blvd. W. Los Angeles 90049

"An Afternoon of International Jewish Genealogical Research"

1:30 - 2:00PM - Paris 2012 IAJGS Conference Highlights:
Brief summaries of the most outstanding programs and lectures.

2:00 - 3:15PM ' "It Takes a Shtetl: Bringing Your Ancestral Towns to
Life" - with Joel D. Waters

In 2006 Joel Waters embarked on a three year assignment at the U.S.
Embassy in Chisinau, Moldova where in his spare time he took the
opportunity to research his paternal grandfather?s Bessarabian family,
thought to have perished in the Holocaust. After two years of digging
he discovered not only that much of his grandfather's family had
survived, but also that his grandfather's youngest brother was still
alive, so Joel refocused his energies toward investigating the history
of his grandfather's shtetl, Leova, Moldova, and the fate of the
entire Jewish community there. His efforts have yielded remarkable
findings and unexpected surprises. Joel will share his discoveries,
his unique shtetl research techniques, and describe the importance of
shtetl research in your genealogical quest.

Speaker: Joel Waters served as a Peace Corps Volunteer in Lithuania
from 1993-1995, stationed in a former shtetl, Ukmerge (Vilkomir) where
he became interested in researching Jewish heritage. In 2002 he joined
the U.S. State Department as a member of the U.S. Diplomatic Corps,
and in 2006, while on assignment at the U.S. Embassy in Moldova, he
embarked on a genealogical quest that lead him to his ancestral
Besserabian town of Leova. After finding living descendants of his
paternal line, the Wassermans, in Bat Yam, Israel he petitioned the
State Department to reassign him to the U.S. Embassy in Tel Aviv where
he spends nearly every Shabbat in Bat Yam with his recently discovered
family.

3:15PM - 4:15PM - Special Interest Group (SIG) Roundtables

Join regional special interest group experts at SIG tables, complete
with maps, records and online access to databases. SIGs represented
will be: Sephardic, Hungary, Latvia, Lithuania, Romania, Galicia,

While we have discussed the value of CD's I want to say look everywhere
you have family.

I am a member of the Elbing-L group on Yahoo groups a small discussion
group that discusses genealogical interests in Elbing, West Prussia, now
Elblag, Poland. One member of the group had transcribed the directories
from Elbing >from 1813 on and had republished them. He graciously sent me
all the listings for my Lewinsohn (and variants) family. He found a listing
for my 3rd g-grandfather in 1813.

The information included address and occupation and it did include women
and said if they were a widow. It is in German - as are many of the
posts on Elbing-L - so I did have to translate the records as well as my
communication with the person who sent me the records. Having worked
with the Elbing film >from LDS that was easy!
