Searching: Sisters Mollie, Lena, Yetta, Yetti & Sophie DUNETZ #general

Foodphile@...
 

Hello....This is the long shot of the day! I am looking for families or
information on Mollie (maiden name DUNETZ, last name unknown) who lived on
Stillwell Avenue in Brooklyn in the 1970's. Her sister's name was Lena
(maiden name Dunetz and I thought the last name was Gabin but I could be wrong
since I find no record under this name) Her other sister, Yetta (my
grandmother) lived at 2249 Stillwell Ave. at the same time and her oldest
sister, Yetti Lipschitz also lived on Stillwell at that time. There was
another sister, Sophie. I do not know where she lived. They came in 1904
from Kovla, Russia province of Volynnia.
Sorry to put out such a longshot...but one never knows! Thanks to all of you.

She named her daughter, my great grandmother, Alberinta or possibly Almirenta,
names that are so unique that I've begun to doubt they are Italian. Great,

I hazard a guess that there were many fewer Italian Jews who were given the
Greek name Nicholas (in honor of various Christian bishops, popes, saints and
emperors) than there were Italian Catholics who had the biblical name of
Rebecca. As for the Al[b/m]erinta name, the initial syllable suggests an Arab
origin, via Malta and Sicily. One good question to ask is: "How many Jews
lived in the area where your grandmother was born?" Of course it is possible
that she was the descendant of Jews who had been forced to convert in earlier
generations.

Just a short note regarding...
A JRI-Poland Case Study (or 'What a weekend that was!')
I thought I must write about the incredible success some researchers
have just had by using the Jewish Records Indexing - Poland
(JRI-Poland) web search system on JewishGen.
This is indeed an incredible success. But please note that the
pleasure derived >from the story stems almost only >from identifying
names, dates and so-far unknown connections between perfect
strangers!! I am saying this because sometimes people who are not
genealogists (but also people who ARE genealogists) tell you: "it is
not adding dates and names to my tree that I am interested in, but
rather the stories behind these...". Michael Tobias has just proved
that it is perfectly legitimate and plain fun to research and find
connections on a tree, enjoy the efficiency of a search engine, and
connect so-far unrelated people!!

Congratulations!

have both Hungarian/current names without success.

If your town is now in Ukraine, try Nelipyne or Nelipeno which was
Bereg county under Hungary and now is in the Ukraine administrative
district of Svaljava.

spelling and Beregovo #hungary

Georges.Graner@...
 

Dear H-sig friends,
Could somebody help me ?
When I receive E-mail >from Hungary, I cannot read all accents and
"umlauts" (i.e. two dots on u and o). Sometimes I can guess, but it
would be easier if I had the complete conversion table. Could somebody
send me a complete list of words with their "translation" in normal
type. Good examples would be:

gorok (greek) uzlet (shop) nemet (german) laszlo and so on.

Thanks in advance.


Another small detail:
I noticed several of you visited recently BEREGOVO in Ukrania.
Do you know that a french Prime Minister >from 1991 to 1993 was called
Pierre BEREGOVOI and his parents were Ukranian. He committed suicide on
May 1, 1993. I do not think that he was a jew.

Best wishes,

Georges GRANER
