HATCHWELL was HACHUEL - origin of the anglicised Sephardic name #general

Celia Male <celiamale@...>
 

I posed a question earlier today about the origin of the name HATCHWELL found
on the OHAYON MONTEFIORE DURAN family tree we have been discussing for the past
few days. It is obviously an early *anglicised* Sephardic family name, found in
Jamaica, UK, Gibraltar and even *today* in Spain.

The answer is in our own message archives - Messages >from Dec 1998 - Sephardic
SIG: "My {gtgt grandmother} was Sol HACHUEL-COHEN (circa 1840-1896) married
with Jose SALAMA-ROFFE ..... named after her "cousin" Solica HACHUEL
(1817-1834)

This family apparently originated >from Tetuan:
http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/T%C3%A9touan

Mathilde Tagger also talks about a book on the Jews of Tetuan, Morocco in the
message archives.

We can see a David HATCHWELL aged 50 [Commission agent] >from Gibraltar in the
1871 census of England and he is living in Levenshulme, Lancs with a Mr W
FARACHER aged 25, >from Morocco, a Moorish interpreter. In 1891, we have a
Portuguese Mary HATCHWELL and family. In 1901, we find Sidney HATCHWELL age 17
born Morocco, a Moorish subject.

However, beware, there are also bona-fide British HATCHWELL with baptismal
records stretching back to the 1600s.

We now have the name HACHUEL to add to our Sephardic family tree and this may
attract newcomers to the fold. Please read this tragic tale:

Great film about pogroms and civil war #latvia

Vladimir Salita <vlasal@...>
 

Dear friends,

This film "Komissar" by director A.Askoldov is one of the best films
made in Russia and masterpiece of the world cinematography as well.
The film was banned by Soviet aouthorities, Askoldov was deprived of
making any movies, the rolls of film was order to be destroyed but one
brave woman saved it and gave the roll to director Askoldov. After 20
years the film had been restored and showed. Best actors are starring
in this film.

"Komissar" with English subtitles is available at a popular movie rental
company, and maybe everywhere.

Below is their annotation:
<<Faced with an unexpected pregnancy, Klavdia Vavilova (Nonna Mordyukova) --
a female commander in the Red Army -- is forced to stay with a Jewish family
until her child is born, an experience that proves transformative for both
Klavdia and her hosts. Aleksandr Askoldov directs this controversial Russian
drama based on a short story by Vasili Grossman, a film that was banned by
the Soviet government for more than 20 years.>>

Here is the link to the recent article about history of this film and its
creator.

Minneapolis 1906 marriage license application question #general

roberta rosen
 

Dear Genners,

Does any one know if a 1906 Minneapolis marriage license application would name
the parent's of the bride? The actual license does not name parents; I'm hoping
the application, (which is available for viewing on micrifilm or for ordering)
might do so.

Thank you,

Looking for Dvora GLASER #general

arie meir
 

Hi to all of you

I decided to give up. It is now more than fifteen years that I am looking for my
grandfather's daughter Dvora Glaser but with no response. It is now my last try
and here are the details:

My grandfather Chaim GLASER lived in Przemysl before the second world war. He
had a daughter called Dvora (Dora or Dova), who was born in 1927. The last time
my family heard >from them was in 1939.

Chaim Glaser was married to my grandmother Helena-Chaya in Vienna.

In the early twenties he got divorced, left Vienna and moved to Przemysl(Poland),
He got married a second time in the year 1926 to Rachella Stolzberg and had this
one daughter. In 1939 he was about 43 years old and she was 12 years old.

In case any one of the readers can help me finding what happened to them please
be so kind to inform me inform me. To your knowledge. The information in "Yad
Vashem" is just a guess and not based on any information .
