Re: Jewish Arrivals in Switzerland 1938-1945 #germany

Bert de Jong's recent useful posting of several small lists of Jews who were
admitted to Switzerland at some time between 1938 and 1945 underscores the
unusual nature of the 21,730 names which appear in the overall list, which
has been available on Jewishgen's Holocaust database for some years.

The same names (many German but also other nationalities) appear
on the USHMM's Holocaust Survivor and Victims database which is
also on line. [See link below. Moderator]

Of course, what cannot be searched on line are the extensive files
collected by the Swiss Government on each individual. Copies of
the documents can, however, be requested >from the Bundesarchiv in Bern.

Re: Haja = Helena / Rajzla=Rachel? #general

Sally Bruckheimer <sallybruc@...>
 

Our ancestors used a variety of given names, often because their names were
different in different languages. Rachel, for example, would be Rajzla (with the -
le diminutive) in Yiddish. Most often, if the name wasn't Yiddish, it was a
'sounds'like' name, like Helen or Helena for Haja. Chale would sound like Haja
(with the -le diminutive), both being related to the Hebrew Chaya.

Of course, fashion was also an issue, with Fannie being popular so that many women
of all sorts of names used Fannie. Sam was the same for men. My grandmother
Matilda was named Rosa at birth.

Her grandmother had 20 different names recorded on her children's birth
certificates: Reis, Rosa, Rachel, Regina, all sorts of R names...and Teresa.
Matilda was named Rosa for her. I guess anything was OK.

connection between Slutsk, Belarus & Starokonstantinov, Ukraine #ukraine

philafrum
 

Hi Genners,

I'm trying to establish a connection between a possible relative who lives
in Israel and myself. He told me his father was >from Slutsk, Belarus.
My ancestors with the same surname (MANDELSTEIN) lived in Starokonstantinov,
Ukraine, a distance of 227 miles >from Slutsk.

Is anyone aware of any connection between the two towns? I know this is
a long shot but I'm hoping there were events or conditions that would
have generated a move >from one town to the other.

Thanks for your thoughts.

German Tombstone needs translation help- ViewMate 32688 #germany

Hotmail <sam_sbl@...>
 

I posted this a week or so ago and got no repose. This is the grave of
an earliest known ancestor, a translation of the stone, especially how
the name is presented would be fantastic and could help push back the
lineage. Any [further] help would be greatly appreciated

http://www.jewishgen.org/viewmate/viewmateview.asp?key=VM32688

Regards, Samuel Sabel sam_sbl@...

[The first line starts 'moshe servant of G-d' a quatation i believe
from the Torah. do you have any close ups? the writing is not clear,
but as far as i can tell the top bit is a very poetical list of his
good character traits. the last word on each line rhymes. the bold is
the name of the deceased- Moshe the son of Eliezer, >from Pfungstadt.
two lines below that it says his age, i think 84 years old. the date
was 'the morning of 12 Kislev 5625' as far as i can tell (11 December
1864)the last line is 'may his soul be bound in etenal life'.]

Erlangen - Help needed in Jewish Theological Seminary of America NY #germany

Eberstadt privat <cpa-eberstadt@...>
 

The Jewish Theological Seminary of America in NY in their stock a
booklet of 9 pages with a description of the history of the Jewish
Community in Erlangen.

I need it desperately and have no possibility to get it, as they have it
marked "restricted", and I think, it is the last one in a series of
private prints.

Can anybody help, copy and send it to me?

The titel is: Geschichte der israelitischen Kultusgemeinde Erlangen

Dear group,

In a 1850s birth record >from Prostejov, Moravia the mother's family is listed as
being foreign and >from a place that is clearly written as "Leskow, Ungarn". Any
suggestions where this was probably referring to? In the Gazetteers and elsewhere
online I've found a Leskow/Leskovicza in Slovinia, a Lesko in Poland (both seems
unlikely and far >from Prostejov) and a Morava Leskov (Moravska Lieskova) in
Slovakia. There was a Jewish community in the latter and it's 65 miles >from
Prostejov.

Thanks for any help,
