Amuletic Names #general

Marlene Bishow
 

Dear Nick

I am not an expert on the subject, but it is my understanding that when a
child became ill, the family might change the child's name to fool the angel
of death. Names such as Chaim and Chaia, meaning "life" were used. In the
instance that I cited in my original posting, I referred to Aunt Annie, who
was named Chaia Chana. In this case, the Chaia was added to her name. I
wonder if this was the way it was (is) done by adding the word OR is it
more common to change the name entirely?

from what I read I gather "Chia" would strictly be the amuletic name
meaning alive.

Re: Cabots Court, London #general

<<Moderator Note: There is a Cabot Square in London's East End (E14 4EY)>.

This is a relatively new development, part of the London Docklands
regeneration project, completed in the 1990s and would, therefore, have
nothing to do with Marilyn Feingold's original request.

It is more likely that the Cabots Court she is seeking no longer exists as a
large part of the area in which I believe this stood was obliterated by the
German bombers who demolished large parts of East London in WW2.

The London E14 places mentioned were in the area of the London Docks. On the

Lookup NYC directories 1862-1868 #general

BRENERDA@...
 

Need help with a lookup in 1862 through 1868 New York City directories for
the Surname TOBIAS. The birth given name is Mark J. TOBIAS which was used at
least until his Civil War discharge in 1862. By 1876, it became Joseph
M(arks) TOBIAS.

Mr. TOBIAS was probably a printer/ printer's apprentice or possible a
clothing merchant. He was born either in 1844 (per Civil War pension
applications to obtain higher benefit) or 1846 (1876 marriage license and
census data).

Thank you.

surname ALPILE #general

GAIL SPIEGEL BILLOW <gspiegel2@...>
 

Dear Genners,
On my great aunt's death certificate my great grandmother recorded her
maiden name as ALPILE. Austria (the Austro-Hungarian Empire) is
written as her country of origin. The town is unknown. My great
grandmother spoke almost no Engish, only Yiddish. I do not know the
original Hebrew surname. Does anyone recognize this name? (The
closest spelling on jri-Poland is ALWEIL.) Having never seen/heard of
this name, I really would like direction.
Thanks in advance,
Gail Spiegel Billow

Thanks to all the people who replied to my previous message. It seems that
there is no connection between the dynastic families ROSENBAUM and our
Rosenbaums but I'll keep searching.

JRI Marriage Records anomalies #general

Ron Kaminker <Ron@...>
 

I have 3 questions on marriage records when searching JRI-Poland (an example
is below where I searched on Prinz)

1. Why are there sometimes not the same amount of males and females?
2. How come sometimes the people being married are not the names being
searched?
3. Sometime you will have 2 last names with an 'r' in the middle
(e.g.goldstein r Silverman)

Surname Givenname Year Type Sex Age
====== ======== ==== == === ====

Breindel 1815 M F
SZWARZ Moses 1815 M M 21 y.

Bigamy #general

Gert Lord <gitty1@...>
 

In the early 20th century, some immigrant men married here when they had wives
and children in Europe. A number of them were sent prison. Where may I get these
records. It would be NY State or City that would hold the info I am seeking.
