Judith Romney Wegner
 


Katzenellenbogen is the name of a town in Germany where, presumably,
Meir of Padua came from. Check out the Stetl Seeker for precise
location.
Sally Bruckheimer
To the person who originally asked about sources for the genealogy of the
Katzenellenbogen family: you can find this in Neil Rosenstein's The
UNBROKEN CHAIN (Sheingold Publishers, NYC).

Butcher: Katsav or Fleischer? #general

Judith Romney Wegner
 

Butcher = Katzev
Shalom Mandelbaum

True, KATSAV (qof-shin-bet) is the Hebrew word for butcher. It comes
from the verb qatsav, meaning to "hew" or "cleave" -- as with a
meat-cleaver)=.

However as a surname, one would be less likely to find a European ancestor
named Katsav than one named Fleischer (German for butcher) -- or even
Fleischmann (like the self-absorbed "Jewish-American Prince" on Northern
Exposure?) Another German word for butcher is Metzger. This is
definitely used as a surname. I am personally acquainted with Jews named
Fleischer/Flescher and Metzger.

CP inflight magazine features Jewish genealogy #general

Harry Dodsworth <af877@...>
 

I flew to Toronto last weekend for Canadian Thanksgiving. The CP
inflight magazine had an interesting article on genealogy with special
emphasis on finding information about Jewish roots in Poland.

The principal person interviewed was none other than the Stanley Diamond
of Montreal, who is a frequent contributor here :-)

He is believed to have come >from 'somewhere' near Kiev. Does anyone
recognize this place?
Thank you

Danes Family Circle #general

Mike and Elynn Boss <mboss@...>
 

My mother told me that in the 1950's in Brooklyn, our DANOVITCH family
which later became DANES formed a group called the DANES Family Circle.
Does anyone know anything about this society or about any of the
(former) members?

Re: Midwife and Butcher #general

David Goldman <davic@...>
 

The YIDDISH word for midwife is AKUSHERKE (>from French accoucher, to give
birth). The YIDDISH and HEBREW word for butcher, the slaughterer, is the
same: SHOCHET. The HEBREW word for midwife is MEYALEDET. The guy who sells
the meat is the KATSAV in Hebrew.

Where does Avarteki, for midwife, come from? And Fleishhacker?!

Ann BOTHMAN #general

Maurine McLellan <trmclell@...>
 

This is a long shot, but I am running out of possibilities. I am
looking for the niece of Ann Bothman, wife of Louis Bothman. They had
no children. Louis had done considerable research on the Bothman
family. When Louis died, Ann was in possesion of the family info. When
she died, everything was left to her niece. Ann lived in Menominee,
Michigan at the time of her death. I am hoping to locate the niece (I
do not even know her name) and see if what happened to the information.
Any help would be greatly appreciated.

Thanks in advance,

Re : Jews in Montpellier France #general

Alkrams <alkrams@...>
 

Joe Ross asks for a private anwer, but I think the information may be of
interest for other people.

Yes there is a jewish community in Montpellier. It is quite an old community.
The first documents concerning Jews in the Archives Departementales are
dated 1716, but according to Daniele Iancu and Mireille Lacave (Bulletin
historique de la ville de Montpellier, n=B07 special), Jews were living in
Montpellier during the Middle Ages.

If you read french, there is a very interesting study about the Jews of
Montpellier : Pierre Burlats-Brun, "Filiations juives a Montpellier de lafin
du XVIIe siecle au Second Empire" in Annales de geneaalogie et d'heraldique,
n=B03, juillet-septembre, p.5-15

(For Joe Ross : I send you privatly the adress of to-day community.)

Oshamana Brothers. Org. #general

Sheldon Clare <clare+@...>
 

Many of my relatives including my grandmother are buried in the OSHMANA
BROTHERS plot at Mt. Judah Cemetery in Brooklyn, NY. The plot is in
terrible disrepair and when the cemetery was contacted, they gave me the
name of a man who has the organization's records. When contacted, the
elderly gentleman told me he no longer keeps the records and cannot
remember who does.
Is there anyone out there who can help?
