Adam Brown
 

Response to this year's conference has been incredibly positive and
our IAJGS room block in the Swan Resort is poised to sell out on
certain nights.

You can help! If you know that you will *not* be in Orlando on a
particular night, and thus intend to cancel any or all of your hotel
reservation, ***Do Not Contact the Hotel***!

*Instead*, please only notify ADAM@IAJGS2017.ORG so that we may
reassign your reservation to another IAJGS attendee ourselves and
arrange for your hotel deposit to be promptly returned to you.
If you do not follow this procedure, but instead cancel via the
hotel, we will lose the room >from our IAJGS conference block and it
will not be available to one of your fellow Jewish genealogists. It
might even prevent your best friend >from attending!

Notwithstanding the special procedure, it is not too late to register
for the conference and book rooms. Visit www.IAJGS2017.org to sign

Re: Schrenzel name meaning #general

Roger Lustig
 

1) The Guggenheimer & Guggenheimer book does not have a very good
reputation. See Alexander Beider's review in Avotaynu about 10 years
ago. Many of its derivations are demonstrably wrong; others are
fanciful; and others contradict their own (curious) principles.

2) Beider's own _A Dictionary of Jewish Surnames >from the Russian
Empire_ says that the origin of the surname is uncertain. It could refer
to an old Germanic word for "beloved," or possibly have something to do
with the given name Sprinze. He notes an early use of the surname:
Mordechai SHRENTSEL, who lived in Lwow in the 17thC.

3) There might be further information in Beider's book on Galician
surnames as well.

Well, that seems a bit stretched, as why should a diminuative mean young? And

What actually does it mean? Is it some kind of profession?
The -el in German and Yiddish is a diminuative, meaning small, not directly young
