Re: Strange given name #general

Here I go: ".ittma.." This is all I have. The first letter could be
an "S" or an "L"; and the final two could be "ma" or "mi". So we
have Littmame, Sittmame, Littmami or Sittmami. Does anyone
recognize any given name in these words?
Looks to me like "Littman", a reasonably common name. I presume the
etymology is just "man >from Lithuania".

I hope this is helpful.

Re: Midwifery #general

Harold Pollins <pollins@...>
 

For the UK an excellent study is by Lara V. Marks, Model Mothers. Jewish
Mothers and Maternity Provision in East London 1870-1939. Oxford Historical
Monographs, Clarendon Press, Oxford, 1994. ISBN 0-19-820454-X.
(Mrs Alice MODEL was instrumental in improving facilities for Jewish
women,. She was known as the 'Florence Nightingale of the Jewish
Community'.)

I notice that on pages 95-6 of Lara Marks's book there are several
references to publications on
the subject of immigrant midwives in America, specifically, New York,
Chicago, Wisconsin, and Massachusetts., some of them contemporary studies.

This feminine form of Aaron is not a traditional girl's name, but is often
given today to girls whose parents wish to commemorate an ancestor called
Aaron. >>

==She might have been called after grandpa Aron but I am inclined to think
her name was a variant on Erna. Depends, I guess, on the ambient culture,
spellings and aliterations (I think I've heard something close to this
variant among Hungarians). Erna was frequently bestowed on girls named

Using Gedcom to find new branches #general

IsraelP <p2o5rock@...>
 

This morning I emailled an updated gedcom to Dorot. This
includes only my identified family and not everyone from
our project to identify all the Pi(c)khol(t)z families.

As I prepared it, I realized that I stand a good chance of
missing the casual Dorot inquirer with a Pickholz in his
background. He may well look at mine and say "I don't know
any of these" and go on to something else.

So I added several new entries, named EVERY Pickholtz, EVERY
Pickholz, EVERY Pikholc etc - with the caps to draw attention.
Then in the text I put a short note saying that we are looking
for all Pickholz families, regardless of spelling, and added
my address, phone and email. (Not everyone will bother to ask
the Dorot staff for sources.)

If it gets me one new person, it's worth the effort.
