I have been trying to research my great great grandfather that came

1900. He died in 1945 of December in Chicago.
Any chance he was married to an Ida, with children Norman, Meyer, Stanley
and Harold? There's a Nathan Breen in the 1930 census, city of Elgin,
Kane County, Illinois. This Nathan was born around 1877 in Russia and was
a men's clothier.

There's a death certificate for a Norman Breen who died in Dec. 1945 in
the Illinois death records database so the certificate itself should be
available on microfilm. Perhaps that would give his birthdate and
parents' names.

German-Jewish Given Names [that don't seem Jewish] #germany

Daniel Sachs <sachsmd@...>
 

It has always piqued my curiosity that German Jews did
not give their sons certain Teutonic names like
Detlev, Dietrich, Reinhold, Reinhard, Lutz, Uwe, etc.
but certain other names like Rudolph, Erich and Heinz
were acceptable. Was there a list of verboten names,
or a list of acceptable names?

I remember reading also that the names Siegfried and
Sigmund and Wolfgang, although undoubtedly Teutonic,
were so often used in naming Jewish boys that
Christian parents shied away >from them as too Jewish.
Is that right?

Daniel Sachs Bethesda, Maryland, USA sachsmd@yahoo.com

MODERATOR NOTE: Name questions often generate a lot of chatter in this
forum, much of it far off the topic of genealogy research. If find this
inquiry interesting, however. Perhaps the fact that I was given the name of
a famous Naval officer and a beloved Pontiff, neither of them Jewish, has
something to do with that.

I would like to allow more discussion than usual this time but we will
*** not *** post messages about individual Jewish relatives with
"Teutonic" names unless there is a documented and instructive
explanation. JPL / MOD1

Is this Abraham LEVIK's Russian swimming award? #general

Martin Fischer
 

My maternal grandfather, Abraham LEVIK (1877-1957) of Kiyev, Ukraine, is
reputed to have won a river swimming competition and received an award >from
the czarina of Russia.

I have posted close-up photos on ViewMate of a piece of jewelry that seems
to have Russian letters on the front and two dates (October 2, 1905 and
October 2, 1910) on the back.

Is this a swimming award that might have been presented to my grandfather by
the czar's wife, or does it have anything to do with his service in the Russian
army in the Russo-Japanese war?

What do the letters on the front signify? What do the numbers on the back signify?
Could they indicate he won the swimming competition twice, or could they indicate
the years of his military service?

I realize that this is not exactly a genealogy question, but we are interested in
learning whether that story about my grandfather's athletic achievement might be
validated by this piece of jewelry.

I would be interested in hearing >from experts on the history of the Russian royal
family who might be able to verify that the Russian letters on the front might
verify that it was presented by the czarina. Was there a tradition of river
swimming competitions in czarist Russia, in Kiyev or elsewhere? Was there some
particular significance to October 2 in the history of Russia?

East End Missionaries #unitedkingdom

cyril fox <cyril@...>
 

This thread reminds me that as a child I was occasionally taken to the
Mildmay Missionary Hospital.

This was in Austin Street E2 , near Calvert Avenue and the Hackney Road.

It was noted for its kindness and good practice , but I never heard of a Jew
being converted by them.

Nowadays, I understand that they specialise in HIV/AIDS.

O tempora, O mores.

JEWISH ORPHANS? #unitedkingdom

malcolm katz <malkikatz9361@...>
 

As an add on to a previous posting and the original
message's.
It would seem that there were more then a few
Christian groups at work in the East End and from
where i sit i find it very sad as most wernt orphans
from what i read.
It would seem the parents were poverty stricken and
couldnt feed there kids,Ive seen a fair few postings
by people who have Jewish roots looking for info on
this site,Maybe this would be a good area to look at
in the future as a database maybe.As i feel theres a
big difference between an adult converting and a child
given over through poverty without a choice,I find
that the sadest fact of all.
If it helps someone find there 'roots' then id say
thats what genners are here for,And it would be nice
to right a wrong after all this time.
Any other genners up for doing some detective work or
willing to take part if thats OK.
