TSESIN not TSETSIN #general

Ida & Joseph Schwarcz <idayosef@...>
 

Dear group,
I recently sent a request for information on the Tsetsin family. A Russian
speaking friend just corrected my transliteration of the name on the verso
of the photo I have. It is M. Tsesin. No place, just the date,May 13, 1935.
The boy in the picture is my relative (according to my late mother a
"cousin") Meir Tsesin. He is about 8 years old in the picture so if alive
he is 73. I would love to get some information about this family. They must
have lived in Ukraine.

In the early 20th century, Paley Photography Studio was located on the
Lower East Side, I believe on Division Street. I would appreciate
hearing >from any of you who have any knowledge of the studio. I believe
these Paleys may have been relatives.

There is also Warren Blatt's slide show on Jewish names,
found at http://www.jewishgen.org/infofiles/GivenNames
Slides #17 and #22 of his presentation deal with this specifc
question.
Warren's presentation is very informative, but a couple of comments
are in order.

1 The kinuy for Naftoli is Hirts/Herz (= hart). This is based on the
verse in Bereishith/Genesis "Naftoli is a hind..."

2 There is also a Hebrew name Tsvi =(deer) whose origin is unclear,
referred to (in Yiddish) as Hirsh

3 Possibly because of the similarity between the words Hirsh & Hirts
the two have become intertwined, yielding the combination Naftoli
Tsvi.

4 I am sure Warren will not mind if I correct his spelling of
Arye = lion (not Arya)

Re: Female name Dobrisch #general

Ida & Joseph Schwarcz <idayosef@...>
 

Dobra means good in Slavic languages. This may be a Slavic translation
of Gitl.
Ida Selavan Schwarcz
Arad, Israel

From: mario_m@netvision.net.il [mailto:mario_m@netvision.net.il]

We have always thought that Dobrisch was a masculine name from
Dov. But now we found a female who's name is Dobrisch. The only
name we can think of as it's origin, is Devora. (This woman is
from the Ukrain.) Can anyone confirm or refute this?

I have found possible cousin names on other photos : SILBERMAN

VM 196-extract Russian handwritten D certtificate. #general

Kirsten Gradel <kmgradel@...>
 

I just uploaded to ViewMate a D certificate, Russian handwriting, >from
Warshawa 1869. Would you take a look and give me the *Extracts* of
relevant facts:

Date of death, age of deceased, *Name of Husband* (I actually think I can
read that, but it could be wishfull thinking on my part), her town of
birth or residence (I also think I can read name of a town, to the right
2 lines below the one with her name, but again, wishful thinking?). Is
there any mention of parents, children, relationship to witnesses, cause
of death? Was she visiting in Warshawa?

The file can be found as VM 196 in the "To view" section at
http://www.jewishgen.org/viewmate/

Re: Miami Death Notice - Today? #general

Ann Rabinowitz <annrab@...>
 

In regard to anything that happens in Miami/Dade County, you can go
yourself to the web site of the Miami Herald and search their Archives.
For the last fourteen days there was no mention of a Bess Braun.

The web site is: http://www.miamiherald.com

Most newspapers now have web sites with search capbabilities, so you can
look almost anywhere in the world for information.
