The Hebrew would be Elisheva if that's the right Hebrew name. I'm not
convinced it is.

Sounds like someone with a typical Jewish -Slavic, Eastern European accent
is trying to pronounce "ALICIA." Alicija is a very common polish womens
name. Hebrew could be "Alecheva"(AL LE CHEV A)

Is Surica a Jewish firstname ? #general

Francois Chetreanu <francois.chetreanu@...>
 

Hello,

My great grandmother firstname was Surica.
It seems that in France she was called Sarah.
But I wonder if Surica is actually Jewish.
She was born in Romania. Does anyone have heard
about this firstname ?

I came across Steve Tarcala's home page and thought others may find it
useful. Among other things there is a list by name of Bardejov's Jewish
business owners in 1930, although the businesses are written in Slovak.
The address is http://www.tarcala.miesto.sk/
Please forgive me if this web page was mentioned before.

Dear Robert,

You are right on the mark! While the jury is still out as to why Hungarian
doctors and coroners used Latin expressions INTERCHANGEABLY with Hungarian
causes of death, I lean towards the school of thought which claims that
Hungarian medical graduates were simply so proud of their Latin knowledge
that they liked to show it off....at every perceived opportunity... What you
so charitably attribute to a typo, I would tend to ascribe to insufficient
mastery of Latin adjectives. As to the vagueness which you so correctly
discerned in the Latin name, I can assure you that the Hungarian equivalent
is equally vague. It was not uncommon among extremely old people to simply
stop eating when they felt it was time for them to meet their Maker.
The Hungarian cause of death is then usually shown as "vegelgyengules", which
literally translated means :"final weakening".

LANDSMAN: Cape Town and Jerusalem #southafrica

Ann Rabinowitz <annrab@...>
 

I am searching for a LANDSMAN who was a widower and went to Palestine in the
1930's-1940's >from Cape Town. I do not have his first name. He married a
second time to Chaia-Pese Choritz, great aunt, who was also >from Cape Town.

I found a grave in Cape Town for a Rochel Landsman, born 1866, died November
6, 1941, and did not know if this was his first wife or not.

Please contact me directly if anyone is related to this family.
