Faux Pas #poland

Ronisl@...
 

I KNEW something was wrong as soon as I hit the "send" button, but off it went
with my faux pas. Just wanted to see if you were paying attention <g>!
Apologies to STEVE Zedeck and MICHAEL Tobias. But I'm glad I was able to
generate a few giggles out there.

Is Nitza a Jewish name? #general

Judorican@...
 

After giving a talk on the history of Jewish-Puerto Rican relations at a
recent conference, several Puerto Ricans came up and told me about rumors
of Jewish heritage in their families. One young woman told me that she was
told that her given name, Nitza, was originally a Hebrew name. Does anyone
have any info on this?

Thanks to all who have supplien information to me regaring the fire. As i

difficult. I have already contacted various organisations (and have a few
more to go!)

If anyone has a list of casualties though, i would be grateful if they
could contact me

Thanks all

I am assisting a friend in tracing his family and the community of
Yashinovka (near Rygrod). Their family name was Chavka. He and his parents
left Poland in 1935 and eventually settled in South Africa. We look
forward to locating other persons >from Yashinovka or their descendants.We
have checked both the JewishGen Archives and Family Finder.

Re: Ufa (previously USSR) #general

rita <rivke@...>
 

Dear JewishGenners

I'm wondering if there are any of you whose family might have spent the
war years in Ufa USSR. My parents escaped >from Lublin in 1939 and made
their way to Ufa near the Ural Mountains. They lived and worked there
as free citizens (albeit under straitened circumstances) until they were
repatriated to Poland in 1946.

I'm curious about Jewish life there (if any), how Jewish strangers were
received, how they survived, why Ufa etc.

Re: Gravestone Name YDYDYH? #general

Ury Link <uryl@...>
 

The name Jedidiah (Yud-Dalet-Yud-Dalet-Yud-He) is a common name that is
used by male and female, special in the Orient as a female name. The
source is: Shemuel B cap 14 ,24,25.:

...And she bore a son, and he called his name Solomon and the lord love
him .And he sent by the hand of Nathan the prophet, and he called his
name Jedidiah.

You see it is a Biblical name. You second question is about Louis and
you give in you letter the answer. Louis is Levy and also Lieber is
Levy. ( in some cases at can be Yehuda Leib ,and Lieber come >from
Lamed-Yud-Bet the Hebrew letters for Leib) . So the Hebrew name was
Yakow ben Jedidiah and the family name is Ha-Levy.

Divorce records #general

David Fielker <david@...>
 

I had a similar situation to that of Judi Langer-Surnamer Caplan. My
great-uncle Henry SCHNEEBAUM's Declaration of Intent in March 1922 said he
was living in Manhattan and his wife Blanche was living in Newark NJ,
which was a surprise because I had never heard of Blanche! Census records
and a marriage certificate confirmed that Henry had married Blanche and
they were living with her parents in Newark. As I knew he married Dora in
1923, I wondered what had happened to Blanche. There was no death record
for her in NYC or NJ, nor could anyone find a divorce record, and I began
to think she was buried under some floorboards somewhere!

Then a professional genealogist in Trenton (who I had used several times
before) came across divorce records in the Information Center of the
Superior Court of New Jersey in Trenton. If the petitioner was living in NJ
then that may be the best place to look.

ask you in advance whether or not you want to pay for it, they Use
Bankers Trust Co in NY...acct 04 094 040 and they write in Russian, tho
they dont mind if YOU write in English...their copies are a bit hard to

Jewusz, Josef Nowak, and Bachewiski, all >from the shtetl Derewnia. The

they can get it clearer, and if it's ok with the moderator, I'll post
