Lithuanian records: son has father's first name? #general

Roy Ogus <ogus@...>
 

In several Lithuanian vital records for the town of Paberze, I have
found a reference to a person who has the name Yankel ben Yankel
(SURNAME). In other words, this person has the identical given name to
his father. The records were for the period 1840 - 1860.

This is a most unusual naming pattern in this Ashkenazic family or for
that matter in any records of this community that I have seen.

One situation that I can envison is that the father died during the
mother's pregnancy, and when the child was born, he was named for his
deceased father. Has anyone heard of this situation before?

Can anyone think of any other explanations for this unusual naming
pattern?

Thanks for any ideas.

Re: Milwaukee Yiddish #general

SHEILA TOFFELL <toffell@...>
 

I recently attended a production of Gluckel of Hamlin,at the Museum of
Jewish Heritage NYC, in which Adrienne Cooper, a leading Yiddish
performer, was taking part . After the performance there was a Q& A
session, and I asked her which genre of Yiddish was used, as I could not
understand much with my (admittedly) kitchen - sink Yiddish. She explained
that "Stage Yiddish" was usually Lithuanian Yiddish, so if you knew another
type, mine for example being >from Ukraine, it might be harder to
understand. This might have been why Rochelle's parents laughed at the
pronunciations.

I grew up in the midwest, too--Milwaukee, not Chicago. I was the child of
Russian Jews, if we're just using German, Russian, Polish, Litvak as
cultural dividers. And I always heard the "ah" pronunciation
(matzoh, challah, shiva, bubbe, shiksa, etc.).And my parents,those happy
consumers of Mickey Katz records, would make fun of the other
pronunciations. So I think it's not American localisms--those were
separate >from Yiddish. In school we were taught by our American teachers
to speak like newscasters; we were warned not to say "Chi-caw-gah" but
instead "Chi-caw-go!" But we also had something we called
"Milwaukee-talk," (pronounced "Mwakee-talk"), related to the German
influence on syntax: "throw me down >from the porch the keys" or "Look up
the street, the soldiers are coming down" or (my favorite) "I know your
name but I can't put you."

Re: Translation of a name (Ida) #general

Brandler Institute of Chasidic Thought <bict@...>
 

Perhaps we ought not discount the possibility that sometimes "Ida" may be
the "secular" version of the popular Yiddish name "Aidel" meaning
fine/delicate. Although generally it became "Adel" or "Adeline" it possibly
may become "Ida". To this very day "Idy" as a nickname for "Aidel" is a
fairly common name in the Chasidic community, which takes great pride in
the precise continuity of the Jewish names it gives its children.

Get a copy of the "Declaration of Intent" >from the Immigration and
Naturalization Service. It should contain the name of the ship and date
of arrival as well as his place of birth. Death certificates may provide
age location of birth and parents names. Census records will provide
place of birth and names , ages, places of birth of those people living
in his household. You can search passenger arrival indices to locate the
ships manifest that will contain info about your relative. You can get
copies of marriage licenses and marriage applications which will provide
some of the information you are seeking.

If you are uncertain how to obtain these records I suggest that you go
to one of the Family History Centers (at many Mormon Churches). I am
pretty sure there is one in your part of the Metro region. You can also
search the Family History Center catalog on the web. There is also a
Jewish Genealogical Society in your area that could give you some
advice. Check out the Jewishgen web site for information on how to go
about getting some of the data you seek.

This chapter of Gold deals with the years >from 1848 to 1914 in Bukovina.
Some of the subjects covered include the important Jewish contribution in
manufacturing, business and the trades and education, the fierce struggle
between different orthodox groups and the rise of the "enlightened" Jews,
and Jewish involvement in politics and the start of Zionism. The parts
played by dozens of Jews, mainly >from Chernivtsi who were prominent in

JewishGen Announces Carol W. Skydell Day #lithuania

Official Carol W. Skydell Day on JewishGen
in honor of her 75th birthday

November 2, 2000

There are special moments and special people that an organization can
recognize, and today is one of those very special occasions. Can you imagine the world of JewishGen without Carol Skydell?

This feisty red-head first presented herself to JewishGen at the Washington
Summer Seminar in 1995. She had been known to many of us through her
informative posts on JewishGen during the previous six months.

It was here that Carol made her first big mistake in her 5 year "career"
with JewishGen. A mistake that now carries forward to anyone who complains.
<grin>

They say you can't teach an old dog a new trick... well those prophets were
wrong! We have proven over many years that no matter what your age, and no
matter what your disability and no matter how technically challenged you
are... JewishGen can find a way to get you to volunteer... and then some...
Carol is our proof! <grin>

from the Support Desk to Moderator, >from Moderator to Board Member and
Public Relations, >from Public Relations to VP of Operations... Carol has
surely been on a fast track.. all the while demonstrating to us how fast she can still type.

Mother of three sons, two daughters-in-law, one grandson and four or so
grand dogs, Carol continues to monitor all her duties while making cross
country treks between her east and west coast homes twice a year. All of her files are zipped, her paperwork stuffed in baskets in her car... and her car put on a transport... it is JewishGen flexibility and mobility at the utmost.

JewishGen has gained immeasurably >from Carol's exuberance, her willingness
to tackle any job ... no matter what time of the day or night it presents
itself, her undying spirit for what JewishGen stands for, and her
unsurpassing loyalty and dedication to the missions and goals of this
organization.

Please join with us today to honor Carol! There is no better way to say
thank you on this special day than to give back to JewishGen by making a
gift in her honor to JewishGen through our Honors/Thanks JewishGen-erosity
site.

http://www.jewishgen.org/jewishgen-erosity/honors.html

Please join us in celebrating this very special occassion with Carol. This
will be the most special gift of all. What a better way to honor an
individual who has given generously of her time through dedicated, selfless
work for the greater good of Jewish genealogy?

Your contribution to JewishGen will continue to fund our operational budget
which supports all of JewishGen's activities, projects and SIGs, each and
every month.

Happy Birthday, Carol!

MODERATOR'S NOTE: Even though Carol is mostly a Galitziana, LitvakSIG is delighted to join with JewishGen in wishing her a Happy Birthday.
