Photo of house and surroundings in Lutsk/Luck #ukraine

Dear all,

I'm wondering if any of you live in or nearby the town of Lutsk/Luck
(Ukraine)? I'm interested in some photos of my grandmother's pre-WWII
address and its surroundings: Kovelska 10.

I'm aware that the house might not be the same.

Best regards,

Czernowitz BMD Index Database Update #general

Daniel Horowitz <daniel@...>
 

Dear JewishGeners

Thanks to many of you that volunteer to transcribe, we finished all
the indexed BMD (and some voters and other lists) records.
The updated database is now available on the usual address
http://microtarget.com/czernowitz/CzernowitzBMDindex.htm

But this is far >from finish. We are now working on the actual records
from 1860-1894 and 1930-1941 that had no index. This is a real
treasure on the history of our ancestors.

Happy New Year 2014

Daniel Horowitz

Why did Maier ADLER become Albert GOLDHAMER? #general

Jack and Pat Freeman <jandp.freeman@...>
 

I have in the past 4 years or so posted to this message board a few
times requesting help with my research into the origins of Albert
GOLDHAMER, specifically the confusion I encountered when I became
aware that was not his real, or at least his original, name. Early
on I determined when he, his wife and 2 of their eventual 5 children
left Slovakia in 1902 to settle in Philadelphia. Over time I pieced
together the growth in their family and change of residence to
small-town Ontario, then to Toronto, and then to their dispersal to
various areas of Canada and the US. They are all now dead - none of
the children had children. A year ago I decided to commit my
research and findings to paper as further information, or at least
facts, seemed impossible to find. My story of the Goldhamer family
is in the JGS of Toronto library.

Part of the confusion was that other names for Albert kept coming up;
particularly in birth records of his children. The most common was a
surname of ADLER, and various first names, usually beginning with M.
It was clear that Goldhamer, although the name he used for at least
50 years, and which his children carried for all their lives, was not
his name - it was his wife's maiden name. But her origins proved to
be only slightly less obscure than his. I did, about 4 years ago,
find a record of her and 2 children, all with the surname Adler,
arriving at Ellis Island, but no record for Albert ever surfaced.

Just this past weekend based on another message board's note of
updates to searchable passenger list records, I thought I would try
again to find Albert. And there was his 1902 arrival at Ellis Island,
under the name Maya Adler, enroute to Philadelphia. And I also found
the corresponding departure record >from Hamburg, under the name Maier
Adler. All the other details confirmed my previous findings. Now I
will continue my research to try and find out his elusive birth and
marriage records and hopefully determine who his parents were. And
also, if possible, determine why the name change >from Adler to
Goldhamer in 1904.

Any suggestions as to where I might pursue research as to birth and
marriage records in today's Slovakia (Hungary in the late 1800s) would
be appreciated. The town of last residence was Batizovce (Batizfalva
in Hungarian, Batzdorf in German).

Origins of Jewish names SITE CITE and name questions #germany

Christine Crawford-Oppenheimer
 

We sometimes have questions about this on the list, so I thought I'd
forward this URL: http://tinyurl.com/ph3yk7b
http://www.slate.com/blogs/lexicon_valley/2014/01/08/ashkenazi_names_the_etymology_of_the_most_common_jewish_surnames.html

[Mod note: This is a SLATE.com blog page containing advertising.
The time tested and favored sources on this subject are the classic
_ A Dictionary of Jewish Names and Their History_ by Benzion C. Kaganoff
and, for Germany, _A Dictionary of German-Jewish Surnames_ by Lars Menk ]

I have quibbles with some of his derivations. For example, I suspect
the name Gluck is more likely derived fro the German word for luck, He
suggests Goldman might be derived >from the name Golda, but Is Goldmann
an actual German name, or is it an English translation of Geltmann,
someone who works with gold; goldsmith. He suggests Berliner as
meaning son of Berl, but gives a better attribution in the section on
names derived >from towns as meaning a person >from Berlin. But in
general, it may be helpful for people wanting to understand names.

Also a question re. patronymics and matronymics. In the third
paragraph, he suggests that before surnames, a son would take a
patronymic, but a daughter would take a matronymic. I'm lucky enough
that many of the people in my husband's Jewish line had surnames
before Jews generally accepted them, but the few women without
surnames in the line seem to have patronymics rather than matronymics
(e.g., Gutrut b. Eliezer; Frummet b. Josef Lewi). Is the use of
matronymics for daughters a regional thing, or an occasional thing
(the examples he gives of people taking a matronymic when the mother
is predominent), or what?

notations on Lemberg death records #general

Errol Schneegurt
 

I am currently working on the input of the 1849 Death records for the city
of Lemberg. The last column labeled notations has the name of the person
doing the recording or witnessing the entry and the word Tax and in some
cases a word that looks like Tax funy.

Some of the entries have a 3 digit number and others have a calculation 12
x some number (12 x 427). To add to my confusion there is another number
which looks as if it could be an address ex. 482 2/4, 830 4/4 etc. but does
not coincide with the address given for the deceased.

On the top of the column there is hand written notations T no. and L no.
I assume that all of this relates to some kind of death tax.
Thanks
