Jerusalem IAJGS Conference: Yad Vashem Events #southafrica

martha <martha@...>
 

We are happy to announce that the events planned for the afternoon and
evening of Monday, 5 July at Yad Vashem, will take place entirely in the
Valley of the Communities, under the delightful summer skies of Jerusalem.
This setting is so touching and moving that it will provide the perfect
backdrop for both marking the memories of our murdered families and
celebrating the joys of the continuation and endurance of Jewish life. It
is really the perfect setting for this wonderful and moving evening.
Yad Vashem has informed us that due to the logistics, they cannot accept
any last minute reservations, so please, in order not to be disappointed,
make sure that you register for this unique event before the Conference
begins. If you have already registered for the Conference but not the
events at Yad Vashem, you can modify your registration by using the
password that came with your registration confirmation. Go to the online
registration page at http://www.jewishgen.org/jerusalem2004 and click the
hyperlink for updating your online registration.

We all look forward to seeing you in Jerusalem!

Name changes during illness #southafrica

SingingTM@...
 

My knowledge, based on the stories of relatives who were sick in childhood,
is that the added names for female relatives, except for Chaya, do not show up
in documents. Records >from the archives of the countries formerly part of the
Russian empire for relatives such as my mother, named Chaya Sara, might show
the full name or might show just the name Sara. Records in the US, except
perhaps the ship manifest, generally just have the given name, i.e., Sara.

It appears that a person might be given a name A at birth and, should the
serious illness prove fatal,
be recorded at death under another name, A + B.

Does this have any effect upon birth and death certificates?

If the person's name is augmented during illness, is the additional name
deleted upon recovery?

Name Change in case of serious illness #southafrica

Beryl.b <balden@...>
 

Name change in case of serious illness.

In answer to Roger Harris's message re the
above topic.

I can only talk >from experience.

An additional name "Chaim" was added onto
a family member's name when he was seriously ill
as a child.
He lived a good 70 years after that. This does not
appear on his birth certificate which came >from Lithuania,
as he became ill as a child in South Africa. (I would
presume that in Religious Records, the additional
name must be listed through Synagogue records.)

His Death Certificate and Memorial Stone
carries the additional name, which he used together
with his given birth name, right through his lifetime.

Rhodesia / Botswana Jewish family #southafrica

Lehmkuhl <rsa2can@...>
 

Hi folks
Does anyone here have any info on these people?

Harry William DIAMOND (named after his father) went to Rhodesia as a young
man, later travelled to Botswana and married and had 3 children.
Children went to school in Rhodesia and returned to Botswana for school
holidays.
His father lived in England, and when he returned to visit his ill father,
he never returned >from that trip as he himself died in England.
Two of the children were left at school in Rhodesia and no one came to get
them, so they were then raised by the Dominican Nuns at St John's School.
In 1983, the children made contact with a niece through the Red Cross.
The family where English and Jewish.
Harry's brother was Victor DIAMOND and his sister was Victoria DIAMOND (she
married ROSENFELS).

Harry's daughter married Edward David MOSTERT (born 1908; died May 1975 in
Harare; his sister Sarah married BRASSINGTON).

* Putting on my Sh. Holmes cap (was re: New name of Wahrmann utca?) #hungary

Tom Venetianer <tom.vene@...>
 

If the moderator allows me to answer Susanna's question in public, here are some interesting information.

First al all, if you are looking for ANY information, use the Internet resources, mainly Google. There is hardly a word or subject that you won't=
find there.

For example, searching the words "Wahrmann utca" and only Hungarian sites I found the page (in Hungarian) http://www.bparchiv.hu/magyar/kiadvany/bpn/=
37/naplo.html, which informs that the street in question was at the corner of the "Tatra utca".

Then I discovered a very good Budapest map search site:
http://www.webmap.hu/bp/

On that map I learned that still today there are 6 Tatra streets. They are in the 2nd, 4th, 13th, 18th, 20th and 22nd districts (kerulet).

I also checked the Kresz Geza utca, which is in the 13th district. So maybe there is a relation between Kresz street and Wahrmann street.

I also learned that Wahrmann M=F3r was a famous rabbi and lived in the Wahrmann-palota at Andrassy ut 23, in the 6th district.

Thus Susanna, if you have further information on the Wahrmann utca, you may now discover which street today corresponds to the one you are looking for.=
At least the clues are clearer and given above :-)

good hunt

Does anybody know what is the name today of
Wahrmann utca >from Budapest (1944)?

Is it Kresz Geza utca or am I mistaken?

Re: Zalman or Wolf #hungary

The Yiddish name of Wolf translated into Hebrew is Ze'ev. I don't know if
Zalman would be used as a variant for Ze'ev.

I am trying to find the name of my ggrandfather Kaufman. On his daughter's
death certificate it is listed as Wolf Lieb. Yet on a cemetary record that
may
be him it is listed as Zalman Lieb Kaufman. Could this be one and the same
person? Thanks. Carol Karp

Looking for Arnold KOCH #general

HeyJudy123@...
 

I recall seeing postings by Mr. Koch on this forum, but I have not seen his
name in some time.

On Google, I just found a letter he had posted--in 1996--about his
HERSKOVITS cousins while I was researching my own family members with that surname.
Unfortunately, the email address he gave there no longer is in use. This is
the same email address that is used in the archive of the Discussion Group forum
here on JewishGen.

Does anybody have current contact information for Mr. Koch?

Thank you!
