Nachum Tuchman <nachum@...>
 

If you look at the section below the names (after clicking on the page =
number), you will see a link to click on, if you don't find the
spouses name.

One of the possibilities is that they are still transcribing that =
quarter.

This may be of help to many people. I hope so.

"The Jewish Telegraph" weekly newspaper, printed in Manchester, circulates
Manchester, Glasgow, Edinburgh, Leeds, Liverpool, Birmingham & London etc the
towns where there are Jewish communities and every few weeks has a Roots Column
(usually about half a page) where one can place an insertion and describe who they
are looking for (even with photos) and this is absolutely *free*.

Of course, I have no financial interest in this. I just suggested it to the

I suspect that being named after men was not such an unusual thing, I am
named after my grandfather, Abraham - tho' my yiddish name is Miriam. My
mother explained it by saying that Alice started with the letter A. Had
I been a boy it would have been Allen. Of course, this is how some
people named their children here in the States, in Europe it may have

Jewish Museum of Florida, Special exhibit - "Jews of Broward County" #general

Bernard Kouchel <koosh@...>
 

Jewish Museum of Florida: Collects preserves and interprets the Jewish
experience in Florida.
(Since 1763 - The first Jews settle in Pensacola.)

Special exhibit:
"Jews of Broward County" (Hollywood/Ft. Lauderdale)
through January 30, 2005

Did you know that Jews settled in Broward before it was a county? Or that
Broward's first Jewish congregation which became Temple Emanu-El, had their
first service the evening of the 1926 hurricane? How about the familiar
tragic story of the plight of 937 Jewish refugees aboard the S.S. St. Louis,
who were fleeing the Nazis on the eve of World War II in 1939. Did you know
that Broward County played a role in that disastrous drama? Learn the
surprising answers and other extraordinary facts when you visit the exhibit.
Historic photos, documents and artifacts portray the story of many roles
Jews have played in developing the home of Florida's largest Jewish
population.

Re: (Belarus) Baby Girls named for Male Relatives #belarus

Michelle Frager <lulu_brooks@...>
 

Because I haven't used my Hebrew name in decades, it took this long for me to
remember that I'm named for my maternal grandfather. That family came from
Kovne and then Bobruisk.

I don't recall ever hearing that namesakes had to be of the original's gender.
And there are many Hebrew names for girls that are feminized men's names
according to Anita Diamant's 'Jewish Baby Names Book': Aharona for Aaron, Alona
for Alon, Johanna for Yochanan, Mira for Meir among others. In Yiddish, too:
Hinda or Herzlia for Hersh, for instance.

SAMURIN to EISENBERG #general

Beyesn@...
 

Genners -

Well aware that most claims of name changes at Ellis Island are myth, my Bayonne,
NJ "EISENBERG" branch's legend that the real name was "SAMURIN" persisted due to
the frustration I was having nailing down ship manifest records and ascertaining
a shtetl. The family legend was that after arriving in America the hadnful or so
of Samurin family members >from Pinsk collectively chose "Eisenberg" for a variety
of reasons.

So I recently gave in to the legend and began searching all the usual resources
under "Samurin" instead of "Eisenberg" and hit on some excellent corroborating
material that suggests that my Bayonne, NJ Eisenbergs really were Samurins!
Best was a 1908 ship manifest showing a Moische Samurin >from Pinsk aboard the
Vaderland >from Antwerp. His listed destination? -- Bayonne, NJ. His listed
relative in the U.S.? -- "Uncle Joseph Eisenberg of Bayonne, NJ." I have also
found a March 2001 discussion archive on genealogy.com where a Susan Pepper
Aisenberg discusses that her Aisenbergs were really Samurins. I am desperately
trying to locate this Susan Pepper Aisenberg to, hopefully, make a connection.

If anyone knows more about the surname "Samurin" (spelling may be different) >from
Pinsk, or if anyone knows Susan Pepper Aisenberg of Massachusetts, I'd love to
hear >from you.

I am trying to find information about my grandfather Oscar JANOVSKY.

He was born in/near Kiev in 1913, and entered the US in Galveston, TX when
he was approx. 6mths old. He and his mother (Bessie Posner) went to South
Bend, IN, where his father owned a grocery store.

Any assistane would be greatly appreciated.
