What does "koopvr" mean? #general

Alan Barber <alan@...>
 

I have an ancestor (female, a widow) listed in the "Lijst van
gealimenteerde..." the poor Ashkenazic Jews receiving welfare in Amsterdam
in 1809. Her occupation is listed as "koopvr." What can that mean?

David BACHARACH, Philadelphia #general

Searching for descendants of David BACHARACH (aka David BARNUM),
brother of Simon and Nathan BARNUM of Kansas. Born 1834, Fellheim,
Swabia (Bavaria), died 1894, Philadelphia. My husband is a descendant
of Nathan BARNUM and I have some photos that I'd like help
identifying. I think one might be of David.

Can one use the name Lippman as first name? #general

hotmail Dleizer <dleizer@...>
 

Dear Genners,

I’ve have an old photo of my ggggrandfather gravestone which I believed was
located in the Lenin Cemetery in Belarus (the man died in 1908 and was born
at approximately 1808 or even earlier). The inscription (in Hebrew) stated
that his name was Yechiel Temkin the son of Lippman ha-kohen

I am aware of the name Lippman used as a surname and I am well aware that
the name Lippa (or similar spelling) is a common first name (each one of the
branches of that family had at least one or two Lippas presumably named
after the original Lippman )

Is it possible for the name Lippman to be used as first name?

Can anybody explain the meaning of the name?

Can it be related to the lip? i.e the man with the big lip etc?

The gravestone inscription also mention that Yehiel was an old man

Can anybody tell me what would have been considered “old” in Belarus of that era?

We have information suggesting that the man may have lived to more than 108.
Is that possible?

Cheers

Re: MANDELIK family #austria-czech

Lewis Grimm <lewisinnyc@...>
 

Hi Celia and Michael,

My great-aunt was Josefina (aka Pepi) Grimm. She was
born on February 24, 1880, in Koloredov (now Zvole,
near Zabreh) in Moravia. She married Max Mandelik, a
shopkeeper and the son of Jetti and Josef.

Max was born on December 26, 1876, in Jakubschowitz
(now Jakubcovice), near Troppau (now Opava), also in
Moravia.

They both moved to Vienna, Austria, and eventually
were killed in the Holocaust. I understand that they
had three children, Olga, Hilda and Paul. I don't
know what happened to Olga, except that she and Hilda
lived in England (Kenton Harrow, Middlesex). Hilda
became Kennedy (formerly Koenigsberg) and had a
daughter, Susan, who moved to Israel. Paul married a
Madie and also moved to Israel, where he had a son,
Reuven (Bobby) Mandelik. I understand that Paul died
in his 50s. I am trying (so far unsuccessfully) to
get back in touch with Susan Kennedy and Reuven/Bobby
Mandelik.

I hope this helps. Let me know if any of your
research might be relevant.

Cheers,
Lewis

Tel Aviv phone book #germany

Hanna Grossman <hannakg@...>
 

In a recent conversation a distant cousin reported that a Lutheran ?
Bishop had told her (probably about 15 years ago) that there were
"dozens" of Kirchheimers listed in the Tel Aviv phone book. She
found one--in Hebrew--which did not help her, or me.
Could someone look in a current Tel Aviv phone book and provide some
information as to the presence or absence of this name?
I have been working on it for a decade, and while I know of relatives
in Israel, I have never heard of any who were named Kirchheimer. Thank you.

INTRO - researching COBLENZER from Wiesbaden #germany

Peter Fayers <pmfqlsg@...>
 

Hi!
I've just joined in an attempt to learn a bit more about my mother's history
and background. I live in Scotland, UK (Aberdeen) and I only speak English.

Apart >from a distant cousin who has been able to offer some help (TENDLAU
/ TENDLOW), as far as I know my mother is the only surviving member >from that
line of my family. Unfortunately she now has Alzheimers, and can no longer
help at all.

Although she never wanted to tell me much about her experiences -- while still a
schoolgirl, her parents managed to send her to UK at the outbreak of the
war -- she has given me her "Familienbuch" which she wrote as a schoolgirl.
Unfortunately, even many years ago, she was unable to read or translate this
for us. I have asked some German friends, but without much success; the
script is apparently difficult for modern readers.

So I put five pages onto Viewmate. Much to my astonishment, within a
few hours (and before this message was distributed) someone has most
speedily and generously already sent a translation of those first five
pages.

What I do know about my ancestors is the following, which I have added to the
JGFF data base:

Grandparents:
Otto COBLENZER - born 30.11.1875 Heinsberg, married on 9.12.1920 at
Wiesbaden to:
Augusta TENDLAU - born 23.8.1881 Wiesbaden

Great grandparents (Coblenzer):
Joseph COBLENZER - born 21.6.1827 Wehdem Westphalia, m 6.1.1875. d 7.3.1935
Heinsberg
Johanna GUTENBERG - born 14.7.1846 Niederlahnstein, d 12.7.1893 Heinsberg

Great-great grandparents:
Philip COBLENZER - b 1771 Niederzissen, d 8.4.1857 Wehdem, Westphalia
Elise GERSON - b 1791 Ahlen, d 8.4.1857 Wehdem

Benjamin GUTENBERG - b 10.4.1802 Niederlahnstein, d 2.4.1882
Regina FULDA - b Kroppach, d 21.11.1894 Koblenz

Great grandparents (Tendlau):
Max TENDLAU - b 10.10.1842, m 26.12.1869, d 15.8.1884 Wiesbaden
Berta GUTENBERG - b 12.12.1848 Niederlahnstein, d 3.3.1929 Wisebaden

Great-great grandparents: Baruch Moses TENDLAU - b 3.5.1805, m 5.2.1840,
d 17.10.1868 + Johanna Mayer ELTWILLE

Barmen GUTENBERG Hendele KIRSCBERGER

Any help --- either with translating my mother's Familienbuch or with
filling gaps of information about the above members --- would be of course
most gratefully received! Many thanks

Dear Michael: Welcome to GerSIG!

What makes you suspect that the origin of the name ZILBERBRAND is
German? Remember that Jews in Ukraine generally spoke Yiddish, which is
a Germanic language. The name could well have been invented or chosen by
Ashkenazic Jews almost anywhere. You may wish to consult Alexander
Beider's excellent volumes on the sources of Ashkenazic names. (See the
