Re: Occupation - 'spekulant' in Polish #general

Alexander Sharon <a.sharon@...>
 

Basil,

In modern Polish "spekulant' have a negative connotation: this meant
gambler or profiteer. But at times of our (g) fathers this term also meant a
"venturer" or stock exchange broker/dealer. Another term: makler gieldowy
was also common. Nowadays term giel/dziarz (strock broker) is used.
By the way, Polish Gielda [handlowa] (probably >from German: Gelt) desribes
the Stock Exchange Market.

Can anyone tell me what occupation is meant by 'Spekulant' which appears
in a Polish birth certificate dated 1864 >from Zawichost. The father who
was 23 at the time has this occupation.

Is it acceptable practice to include a blood relative's adopted child
in one's family tree?
I would ask whether it is acceptable to not include the adopted child.
If there is a halachic issue, indicate it in the data, but to drop the
child is not fair to the child, the parents or to those to whom you
give the family tree.

Errol,

In JG's ShtelSeeker insert place Krasnoyarsk and select Russia. When you
see entry some 2000++ miles east of Moscow, this is a centre of
Krasnoyarskiy Kray (Territory).

Re: Treatment of Adopted Children in Family Trees #general

Arnold Davidson <arnoldbd@...>
 

Dear Ben,

I think you'll find that most people make a Family Tree be what they want
it to be. It is neither a legal document nor a valid genetic document.
The following information was contained in the manual of one of the most
widely used genealogy programs and might be instructive might be instructive.

If you are interested in tracing your family's bloodline, only enter the
names of children born to the parents on each Family Page. If you want to
record everyone who makes up the family, enter all children as you wish.
You can enter adopted, foster, and stepchildren as children of their
foster, adoptive, or stepparents and leave it at that, or you can ...
indicate the special nature of the relationship.

I enter adopted children. I also enter the parents and other family
members of spouse, although they are not blood relatives, if there is
interest or reason to do so. For that matter, spouses themselves are not
blood relatives.

Schick surname > Conversion ? #general

Udi Cain
 

I dont have any indication about that my ancestors might have been Jewish!I
would like to discuss all the possibilities >from my surname. For me the
idea, that maybe one of my ancestors, because of religious persecution,
converted to the catholic religion, is not "that impossible." What do you
think about my idea?

Thank you for your opinions!

Christof Schick-Fernandez
Dear Christof et al.

I'll open with regret that I can't deal about Theology since I'm secular.
But I can assure you that it's a possibility because such things happened in
huge amounts, and the Jewish nation lost millions of members who were forced
to convert to Catholicism.
Also we know of Jewish families by the name Schick, >from Hungary, from
Germany and >from Belarus. There were amongst them important rabbis' and
physicians. In encyclopaedia Judaika, they have articles about at least four
important Jewish characters >from the Schick family, >from 18th century to
last century.
Best regards >from Jerusalem (>from the eye of the storm). Udi Cain.
