Re: What are banns? #general

michael slifkin <slifkin@...>
 

This isn't correct. For a normal certificate of marriage not taking place in a
C of E church, one must give three weeks notice to the local registrar of
marriages. He then displays the application outside his office. However these
are not the banns. Banns are read in church.
I was a marriage secretary for 17 years in the UK and have some knowledge on the
subject.

In English law, before a religious or civil marriage can take place, the

I believe that the idea is to give an fore warning to anyone who has reason
to object to the marriage with knowledge of a "legal impediment". This
could be that the bride is under age or that one of the partners is already
married.
I should imagine that this is a legal requirement in most places or are
bans not read in the U.S.?>

I recall >from my younger days, living in Montreal, the reading of the
banns by Rabbi Denburg, then the Rabbi of the B'nai Jacob Congregation,
as part of the Shabbat services. He would, as part of the announcements
of his classes, etc., read the list of forthcoming marriages. My
understanding was that this was a civil requirement of the Quebec
government.

Contacting author Philip Roth #general

Masnick, Burt <masnick@...>
 

My name is Burt Masnick and I have reason to believe that I may be
related (distantly) to author Philip Roth (Portnoy's Complaint, Goodbye
Columbus, etc). A first cousin remembered distinctly that the family
had been invited to a "Roth" wedding in the early 1940s and my sister
recalled that she was startled to find a character surnamed Masnick in
one of his books (still trying to find out which book). Does anyone
know how I could get in touch with (or research getting in touch with)
the noted author to question him on this possible connection? Thanks in
advance.

There was a thread in this newsgroup some time ago regarding the kinnui
of the name Siskind, which I would guess is of the same origin as the ones
that you mention. It is frequently connected with the name Alexander.
The theory as to the origin of this connection that I espoused at the
time, which no one supported or contradicted, is that the name Alexander
in some languages (e.g. Arabic) becomes Iskander, which kind of has a
similar sound to Siskind. Although this theory may not be correct,
the kinnui Siskind => Alexander definitely is very common.

the book has nearly always been correct.):
