The Cyrillic letters are the "backwards"N O C b.

Your take on this?

Thanks.

Polish Translation of Birth Records requested #galicia

HJB <hjb@...>
 

Please help me translate this birth record (part 1 & part 2) for
the 1878 birth of Breine Haber. I've given the direct viewmate
links but would be happy to email jpegs as these may be difficult
for some to read.

http://data.jewishgen.org/ViewMate/ALL/viewmateview.asp?key=5748

http://data.jewishgen.org/ViewMate/ALL/viewmateview.asp?key=5749

I had these records posted last week but had no responses so I'm
giving the links again and hoping that someone will be able to
assist with the translation.

Re: London Fire Brigade WW2 #general

The London Fire Brigade has a museum and website and there is a page
about looking up records at
http://www.london-fire.gov.uk/about_us/our_history/your_history.asp

They say when making your request, you should give any information you
have that might help trace the records, such as full name, date of
birth, and service dates, also the area might help.
The e-mail address to contact for information on someone serving during
the war or after is: records.services@london-fire.gov.uk

They also say their policies protect what kind of information can be
released and whom to, so I guess you would need to establish you were
relatives.
Incidentally, there are also plans to keep oral memoirs of what it was
like serving in the wartime fire brigade, hopefully some of this might
become available on line.

Your take on this?

Thanks.
It should be transliterated differently. Firstly, I am reasonably sure that
your "backward N" has a diacritic mark above it, which makes it like the
consonant "Y". Put it with the other two letters, and it comes out "Yos",
obviously an abbreviation for "Josef"... "Yosef", in English phonetics.

There is a segment in the film "Der Dybbuk" which is based on Ansky's play
of that name, in which a character says exactly that. If I remember
correctly (fifty years after seeing it), it's even broader: people may come
back as Animals, Fish, or Plants.

I suspect that this sort of notion was current throught the Russian Pale,
though certainly not by everyone in the Jewish population subscribed to it.
Things like this are the stock in trade of Kabbala.
