EISENBERG in Florida? #general

Eve Clyne <Eclyne@...>
 

We have family in Florida
they are the relations of Florence and Sam Eisenberg.(spelling?)

They were in touch with my aunt (who has died) so we do not have a contact
address.
Florence was the daughter of my great uncle Louis Kwartz (Kwacz) they went
to the USA >from England.
I think it was the grandson who came to England and contacted my father
(many years ago) and it was his sister who wrote to them
i belive they had children called Susan and David?
many thanks

ViewMate - help needed - identifying a medal iven to my ancestor #general

Jacob <jacob@...>
 

My file is up on ViewMate!
My ancestor, Tzvi Frenkel, was given a medal >from Czar Nicolai II.
According to the family stories, the Frenkel fammily spent quite a bit of
time in the Czar's palace.
I would like your help identifying the medal given to Tzvi FRenkel and
maybe, through your answers, find out why, and weather, the families were
close.
I would like to take this opportunity and thank Bernard Kouchel, Josef Herz
(and anyone else I might have missed involved in the ViewMate project) for
this wonderful service, and JewishGen in general.
Thank you in advance,

Shavit Ben - Arie, Israel

Daniel - Gedalia #general

Lancy
 

I was the one who mentioned one specific person, who was called Gedalia
Zimmerman in Europe. On arrival in the US, he changed his name to
Daniel, which was the name of one of his ancestors.
I didn't question the origins of the name, I just asked for help in
locating him or his descendants. I still do.
Thank you in advance.

Re: Genendel #general

cohen ziv <cohenziv@...>
 

my grand mother name was Genendel.
she died in oushvitz
when my oldest sister was born my father wanted to name her after his
mother, and because Genendel is not an Hebrew name he called her Gila'da
I never knew that it meant Hanna.

Re: First name: Berko #general

Ben Ari <yrcdi@...>
 

I agree with all the messages of the meaning of BERKO but just mentioned
the idea as a "Kinui" as a realistic possibility as one of the messages
that I received that highschool kids actually called one of the girls in
the class whose family name was BERKOWITZ and they used to call her as a
nickname BERKO.

Subject: Re: First name: Berko

A reader responded about the personal name Berko:
"What about it being aKinui for Berkovitz and the person being called that
as a first name knickname?"

Berko and Berek are diminutives for the name Ber. In Slavic languages, the
diminutive is often shown with a -k. Similarly Moshe is sometimes called
Moshek or Moshko.
-ovitz and similar endings are patronymic endings meaning, in this case,
that the person's father was Berek. Berek's son Abraham would be called
Abraham ben Berek-in Russian Abraham Berkowitz. So Berko did not come from
Berkowitz but vice versa. In this case, a patronymic can give you another
generation-the Father. Sometimes, however a patronymic is taken as an
inherited family name, so you have to be careful
Ber is usually Dov in Hebrew, so Berko was probably known in schul as Dov,
the two names mean the same thing. Of course, it is possible that Ber could
be something entirely different in Hebrew since it is not a requirementthat
the names be used together.
All these name problems are very common. I think there are probably more
name questions like this than any other topic in Jewishgen after "Can you
tell me about my ___ ancestors!"

Fraternal Significant Tie Tack or Lapel Pin? #general

Shmuel Fisher <Shmuel@...>
 

Dear Genners,

I just found an artifact >from my father. It appears to be one of the above
but does it have any particular significance?

It is a diamond shaped object 1/4 inch on the long side. There is a backing
to hold it to a tie or label and imprinted on it is

KSBA 1903

Does this have any fraternal significance?

London - Looking for burial place. Where to start? #general

Yaacov Slizak <yslizak@...>
 

Hi,

How can I locate my G-G-Grandfather's burial site ?. He died in London in
1924, but I don't have any idea where exactly did he lived.

I've got his Death Certificate >from the General Register Office. The
registration District was the "Mile End Old Town, South Western, County of
London". The informant was registered as "Deputy Coroner for the Eastern
District of London". These are the only clues I have about his residence...

I will spend a week in London next month and I'd like to have any advise
about how to locate his grave.

Thanks in advance.

Probably Stan is right (especially since Mogilev Podolsky was in Podolia)
but I have found also a town called Mohaliva in Bessarabia, then part of
Russia.
