The Surname MOHEL as part of "The Oldest Professions" #general

Judith27
 

Dear All,
In this morning's edition of *THE FORWARD* the columnist Philologos
focused on a question >from Richard Israel of Mass who asked: "Is there any
name in Jewish life that honors an ancestor mohel (italicized in article) or
circumciser?"
Philologos did a survey of Israeli telephone books and he concluded
that "The name Mohel does exist among Jews, but it is very rare." Anyone with
thoughts or comments on why Mohel seems to be such a rare and uncommon
surname - especially as compared to such other religiously connected surnames
as Rabiner, Dayan, Hasid, Beck all of which the author touches upon in this
article - can contact Philologos at philologos@forward.com
Shalom,
Judi Langer-Surnamer Caplan, Long Beach, NY

Death Certificate Details #general

Pappapeach@...
 

Dear fellow Genners;

I just received a death certificate for a man with the same name as my
maternal grandfather. The problem is, the certificate does not say
anything about when, where, or to who he was born. (Died 1935, Wales.)
Does anyone know, is this standard for this time and place?

The only nice piece of information on the certificate, it says what he
died of. As a piece of genealogy information, it is worthless. Also,
I have to say "same name as", because the surrounding information is so
little, it is hard to tell if it is the right person, or mearly another
at the same time period with the same name.
Thanks to all,

David Edelman, San Francisco.

ALLEN, DUNN, SOKOLOW, FREIDENBURG; unknown.

Calculating Distances #general

Paul Fisher <fisherpaul@...>
 

I just found out how to calculate the distance >from Bremen, Germany to
my grandma's sthetl, Touste, Ukraine. Bremen is 791 miles >from Touste.

Anyone can do this with the Sthetl Finder. First you get the latitude
and longitude for your ancestor's sthetl.

Then you plug these numbers into the advanced feature.

Then type in the name of the city and corresponding country for
which you wish to find the distance. It doesn't have to be the same
country as your sthetl.

Since my 4 grandparents came >from 3 sthetls, in Poland, Lithuania and
Ukraine I now know how far apart they are and could go to all three on
the same trip.

Go to the JewishGen homepage (http://www.jewishgen.org). Scroll down the
page to "Research"...in that category, under "Databases" you'll find a
link to the discussion group archives. Once there, you'll find detailed
instructions on the various ways you can search.

Happy hunting!

Searching: DELVALLE /VAN DAELEN #general

Rene <106141.360@...>
 

Dear Genners,

My last request for help was about 4 months ago, and I am sure many more
new readers have joined this group.

The name we are researching is basically SALOM DEL VALLE ( short DELVALLE)

It has many forms like DEL VALLE/DEL VALHE/DELVAILLE DO VALLE/DO VALE and
of course in Dutch " VAN DAELEN"

The first members, known to me, arrived in 17th century Amsterdam >from a
small town near Bayonne called Peyrhehorade ( situated in southern France)

Many members dispersed around the globe but some stayed in Holland.
Descendants of Mordechay Salom del Valle went to Curacao( Netherlands
Antils ) and later to St. Thomas( VI) - Panama - USA
So, we have several branches and like to expand our family as much as we
can !

Information welcomed by

Rene van Wijngaarden in The Netherlands.

Shtetlshleppers #general

David Goldman <davic@...>
 

The Shtetlshleppers program is such a great idea, I am sure I speak for
many of us who wish it continued success and who hope to participate one
of these days. It would be great if one day a compendium of stories and
descriptions involving the Shtetlshleppers experiences could be put
together with pictures etc. It would encourage the rest of us to save up
and participate, and would provide us with insights in dealing with
genealogical travel and research, the ups and downs, successes and
mysteries of discovering our roots in the former Russian Empire. (Notice I
didn't say USSR - since so much of Poland and Lithuania were part of the
old Russian Empire but not the USSR!).
