Re: give name, Idis -- male?? #general

DREIMAN <m4fab4@...>
 

My name in "Hebrew" is Marem Idis, and my whole life I have been told by
those "in the know" that these are not Hebrew names, but possibly Yiddish
names. My mother insists that these name are Hebrew. My name is Mirta Ines
(my given names in Spanish...a Russian Jew born in Argentina...:-)

Suzecrazy@...
 

I need to pick your brains. If my great grandfather immigrated in 1889 but
as of 1920 hadn't been naturalized...aside >from knowing he's >from Poland,
how can I find out more? He didn't show up on a census until 1920. I haven't
bee able to find out anything more.

STONE FRANKEL ASHKENAZY #general

Denise Allen <deniseallen55@...>
 

Hi Everyone
I’m new to the list and I wondered if any one could help with my family.
Montifore Simon STONE was born 3 March 1895 Melbourne Victoria Australia he
married Phyllis Lennore FRANKEL about 1924 in either England or South
Africa.
My father Maurice Lionel STONE was their first child he was born in
Middlesex England on 15 Dec 1924.
His brother Joseph Albert STONE was born in South Africa 27 April 1926.
Phyllis Lennore FRANKEL died Johannesburg Hospital 28 Dec 1926.
The family them came to Australia and the boys were brought up by their
grandmother Lena FRANKEL.
I have been unable to find a marriage cert number for Monty and Phyllis in
England (which I think is most likely as Dad was born there) and I don’t
know how to look for one in South Africa.
Also I have been unable to find Phyllis’s birth in England her parents
Joseph FRANKEL/FRANKLIN & Lena ASHKANAZY were married 4th July 1894 North
London Synagogue Middlesex, again I am unsure how to look for South Africa
I have a number of problems with this family and would be grateful for any
help or suggestions on where to go next.
Thankyou very much for reading all this reading .
Any help will be most appreciated

Gitl is a Yiddish name >from the German for "good" so its Hebrew
translation would be Tova. Sura is of course Sarah. The two names do not
have any obvious and would probably be used for different people, with or
without Leja.

However, since Gitl means good, I can see parents calling any "good
little girl" Gitl. The same as my Uncle Honey, he obviously wasn't named
Honey, his wife called him Honey so much everyone did; and a doctor I
worked with had to put his foot down to stop being called Sweetie by
everyone, because his fiancee, who worked there also, kept calling him
Sweetie.

So I think any girl could possibly end up being called Gitl.
Hello Sally,

the name 'Gitel' (spoken Gitl) was anyway in the 18th and 19th century
as a feminine first name customary. He related itself to the German word
"guetlich" which comes >from the German word "gut" ('good'). The german
word "guetlich" has an own meaning namely "freundlich" ('friendly' [or
'kindly']).

As that for the interpretation described by you for 'Gitl', 'good little
girl' is come, I do not know however. I do not believe however that the
first name 'Gitel' entirely took into oblivion.

from that 'Gitla Leja' could absolutely be the name of the one girl
while the other 'Sura' is being named.

P. S.: Excuse for my bad English.


Looking for emigration routes: Minsk to NY, 1890s - Baltic ports #general

Jon Meltzer <jonmeltzer@...>
 

My grandfather's family emigrated >from Volozhin (now in Belarus) to NY
in 1895. >from some notes my grandfather wrote, it seems the family got
on a train at Minsk and then went "due west" to a "port on the
Baltic". They then appear at Glasgow boarding a ship to NY. I don't
know anything about what the transit routes were at that time or what
port they could have left >from (Danzig? Riga?); all I know is that the
family doesn't appear in the Hamburg passenger lists (and Hamburg
isn't on the Baltic, anyway). Can anyone direct me to information
about routes that Russian Jews would have taken during that period?

Thanks,
