First things first. Yitzhak, is Hebrew, nearly 4000 yo. It's not the
equivalent of a name some three millenia later. It'ds the original.
Isaac is the English verion via Greek & Latin. Aall THIS the equivalent.
Itsik is the Yiddish diminuitive of Yitzhak.
Itsko sounds to me like a Romanian diminuitive. It's not the way Yiddish
diminuitives are formed. Munkatsch etc. is in a region where Hungarians,
Romanians, Poles and Ukrainians co-existed. I'm not sure which country it now
is part of.

==A little more than that. The commentators make much of the fact that the
Torah, in noting the death of Sarah, starts off with the words "And this is
the life of Sarah . . ." The emphasis on life, in the face of death, is very
powerful in Jewish tradition, and coupling Chaya (Chayey) Sarah together in a
girl's name is to suggest that she should have a rich, long and happy life.

In Hebrerw, Chaya is essentially a female form of the adjective Chay, alive.
Chayim, Life, is actually a plural noun (there is no singular fomr--in this
way it parallels Mayim, water, for which there is no singular form). Chayey is
the grammatical form (s'michut in Hebrew) for life OF.

Genealogy programs #general

David Kravitz <dkravitz@...>
 

I store my family tree on the FamilyTreeMaker software program but there
appears to be a limitation on a width of 108 inches. My family tree of six
complete generations and two scanty earlier ones is too wide. If I make the
boxes smaller, I lose some of the detail, ditto going to a smaller sized
print. A gedcom printout does the trick but looks less attractive than an
ftw one.

Is there any software around which makes a wider tree possible?

Stonegrave...words #general

ada01@...
 

In response to Mr. Ouziel question,

Can any one explain the meaning of three words I saw
on my Gfather grave.(Hebrew letters).
beth-shin-teth...mem-he-ayin...caph-he-lamed.
here are my suggestions:

beth-shin-teth
"beshem tov" - with good name, good reputation (considered more important
than all the money and other possessions, nobody takes with him to
the other world...)

"caph-he-lamed"
"Khai leshona" - in Aramic: meaning "beze halashon", in these words.

"mem-he-ayin"
Michtav Ha'iti - >from the inscription of time

I would also like to draw your attention to something I posted about
abbreviations and terms used to be inscribed on Jewish Tombstones in Poland,
at my web page:
http://www.geocities.com/Paris/Rue/4017/ABB.HTM
I welcome any comments/corrections/additions...

I encountered nearly most of theses terms while deciphering
inscriptions found on remnants of matzevot >from the cemetery of Grodzisk
Mazowieczki and Gombin (Gabin).

The list was compiled >from various sources and kind Jewishgenners also helped
me a while ago when I made some inquiries regarding some terms I couldn't
decipher.
There are still two abbreviations I ask the wise council of JewishGen
to advise what they stand for:

*Bet Ayin He Mem Khet

*Samech Gimel Lamed

Shalom,
