Non-Jewish names #general

Sally Bruckheimer <sallybru@...>
 

For all those wondering what Grandma Mary's name was in the old
country-and others with distinctly "non-Jewish" names: I have been
reading Civil Registration birth records for a long time->from several
Polish/Russian towns. Grandma may have been named
Marya over there! Yes, in Yiddish she may have been Malka or
whatever, but Mary was not something they necessarily dreamed up in
New York. Her civil birth record may have said Marya and it may have>
said Malka-or Mirla or anything else.

This goes for all sorts of names you think are not Jewish!

==Sima, especially in Sephardic families, is often Simcha, a Hebrew name
meaning Joy. As we have discussed here at length, it is not unlikely that a
woman--or a man--had two personal names and used them interchangably.

Wozniczna is located 4.7 miles south of Tarnow, but I cannot find it on
actual maps or on maps >from yizkor books.

Another microfilm of vital records >from Raciaz is now available on the
Jewish Records Indexing of Poland web site. Although the film covers the
years 1857-1865, through an oversight records >from 1864 and 1865 are
missing. I hope to have this corrected in the near future.

My thanks to Ben and Rebecca Gerber for their help with this film. There
are still two more films >from Raciaz to be reviewed and transliterated.
More volunteers are needed to complete this work!

Researching MALAQUIAS Family surname #general

hazmat@...
 

Hello!

I am researching the MALAQUIAS surname/ancestry and would appreciate any
assistance that might be out there!

In particular, I am looking for possible connections to my Great
Grandparents Remigio Malaquias and Anna Joseph Roda. Anna Roda was from
or near Figueira da Foz. Her family may have operated a store there.
There is possibly some connection to Cova da Gala or Gala. A child of
theirs, Louis, died before they came to the U.S.

Remigio was a fisherman, possibly >from Lisbon, or may have also been
from near Figueira da Foz. May have come to the US directly >from having
been on a fishing trip to Brazil. Family settled in Provincetown,
Massachusetts on Cape Cod.

Am aware of the probable Jewish origins. Also, have heard stories about
a clown troupe traveling through europe of the name MALAQUIAS.

Any stories about the name or information regarding possible ancestors
would be most appreciated! Please respond to me off list!

Thanks.

tombstone inscription for David GOLDSMITH #general

Joyce Peck <Joycekp@...>
 

While visiting Beth Israel Cemetery in West Springfield, Mass., a
gravestone inscription caught my eye. It's sad. Perhaps it will mean
something to someone. There are Goldsmith's in my family but I don't
know yet if this one is connected to me.
