William Brailovsky <brailovsky@...>
 

I would like if somebody could help me with the genealogy of
R. Moshe LANDAU, grandson of R. Yeheskel LANDAU >from Prague (The Noda
BYehuda). I know he was living in Uman Ukraine, but I would like to

Thank you very much.

New Beider book on Galician surnames #galicia

Gary Mokotoff- <mokotoff@...>
 

The next major work of Alexander Beider, "A Dictionary of Jewish Surnames
from Galicia" will go to the printer shortly. The manuscript has been
formatted for publication, and all that remains is incorporating the
photographs of 30 prominent Galitzianers into the dictionary portion of the
book. The book will be 624 pages, hard cover with dust jacket.

The work identifies more than 35,000 surnames used by Jews in Galicia. It
provides the etymology (the origin of the surname), the districts in Galicia
in which the name appeared, and variants of the name. The 100-page
introductory portion of the book follows Dr. Beider's scholarly style in
analyzing the origin and evolution of Jewish surnames >from that region. This
includes a history of Jewish names in Galicia, basic etymological analysis,
spelling and variation of surnames and analysis of surnames in various
provinces of eastern Europe. An extensive bibliography is provided.

Additional information about the book including a Table of Contents and a
complete list of the 35,000 surnames can be found at
http://www.avotaynu.com/books/djsg.htm.

Francine Shapiro #galicia

AJS1PRES@...
 

Dear Genners

I recently came upon an article entitled: "Tarnapol" - Encyclopedia of Jewish
Communities in Poland, Volume II (Ternopil, Ukraine). It was published by Yad
Vashem, but the name of the project coordinator is Francine Shapiro. This lady's
name interests me because my grandfatehr, Louis WECHSLER had a sister named Freda
WECHSLER, who married a man named SHAPIRO. My grandfather and his sister were
born in Tarnapol. Therefore, I would like to contact Francine Shapiro to see if
we are related. I sent her an e-mail at the following address, which was supplied
by the article:
herman s@.... The e-mail came back as invalid. If anyone knows how
I can contact Francine Shapiro, please let me know.
Thank you

Re: INTRATOR RBaal Ha Tartak / Intrater #general

John <JHSJDC@...>
 

As I just checked into this ng (I hadn't in a while) and searched for
Intrater, I found this thread.
It turns out that on my father's side (FINGERHUT) the family comes from
Eastern Galicia and had relatives in Sambor, and is related to Intraters.

My ggf Zindel ROTTESTREICH married Chaya INTRATER. All I know she had
sisters:
- Chana (of whom I know nothing)
- Ela; who married Shmuel HORN. They had two children:
- Abraham, whose grandson is Shmuel (Horn).
- Friedl, who married Moshe LANGSAM. Their sister Sarah married Bernard
(Dov) WIRTHEIMER, and their daughter, grandchildrent and ggchildren live in
Israel (I'm in touch with them).
