"I have not seen any Jewish family bibles bearing any handwritten family records,

In my experience (at least, in England) it was far more usual to record family
information on the flyleaf of a Siddur (prayerbook) rather than in a Tanakh.
That's probably because whereas most 19th-century Anglo-Jewish homes would have
owned a prayer book, few would have owned a Humash (those being provided in
synagogue, which was the only place where most people would have had occasion to
use one). And a Tanakh (complete Hebrew Bible) would probably have been found only
in the homes of people whose Hebrew was very proficient and who had sufficient
interest in studying the second and third sections of the Bible -- the Nevi'im
(Prophets) and the Ketuvim (Hagiographa). But I think it's fair to say that the
average English or American Jew (even the observant ones) was probably satisfied
with synagogue access to the first section (i.e. the Torah). So family info
usually ended up, if at all, in a Siddur. In my own family, one set of
great-great-grandparents entered the information in a Haggadah -- which of course
is another book that would have been available in most 19th and 20th century
Jewish homes.

Re: Spelling of MORDECHAI #general

Wegner, Peter
 

Bob asked:
"What is the proper Hebrew spelling of "Mordechai" ?
I have seen different ones on the web:
1. Mem - Resh - Daled - Kaf - Yud
2. Mem - Aleph - Resh - Daled - Kaf - Yud
3. Mem - Vav - Resh - Daled - Kaf - Yud

Dear Bob,

The name Mordechai occurs on both sides of my family; it was the name of my
maternal grandfather and also of the father of my paternal grandfather.
Consequently, it is also the name of one of my sons.

The answer to your question is unequivocal: the *only* correct spelling
is #1: Mem - Resh - Dalet - Kaf - Yud
Spellings 2 and 3 are both badly "mangled" -- it seems that on the Web, anything
goes -- and as you said, you definitely don't want a mis-spelling on your
inscription (may you live to 120!). To verify the spelling, you can check out
chapter 2, verse 5 of the Hebrew text of the Book of Esther, which comes near the
end of the Tanakh, among the Five Megillot (right after Psalms, Proverbs and Job).

Yizkor Book Project update for September 2007 #sephardic

Joyce Field
 

During September 2007 the Yizkor Book Project added seven new books

recognition at http://www.jewishgen.org/Yizkor/translations.html,
which is the alphabetical listing of all our online translations,
organized by Regions, Communities,
Miscellaneous, and Other Languages. Also check the section on Regions

translated and check the Yizkor Book Database at

yizkor books on your town.

In addition, we are pleased to note that four books were completed
during this month:

questions #unitedkingdom

AREACO@...
 

Dear All,

I have three questions.

My paternal grandfather's anglicized name was Joseph Zumbach. The family
name became "Salberg" or Solberg" during the time they lived in Manchester
circa 1900. A cousin says it is because there is an area of Manchester that is
called "Salbury". I know that names were changed at American ports. Does
anyone know if that was done when one arrived/lived in the UK?

Can anyone in give a possible reason why my grandmother, his wife who lived
in Manchester, take a ship >from Cherbourg to emigrate to the US? Thank you,

Are there any free sites that provide census, birth death records etc?

Thank you,
Anita Arkin

Experienced JGSLA members will provide assistance with your research
offering one-on-one help with the popular online genealogical databases
and the Center's extensive microfilm collections of US and international
census and vital records, naturalization indexes, city directories,

flash drive. The LARFHC has the largest holdings of any branch in the
Family History Library System and offers 47 networked computers, 150,000+
microfilms, the JGSLA library, and many maps and gazetteers.

The JGSLA is also offering two research classes and one film:

Barbara Algaze, JGSLA Librarian, will explain the resources of the Center
and how to use their census and naturalization microfilms and fiches,
city directories and more. A great start for members new to the library,

hints to enhance their research.

4:40 - 5:00 p.m. =96 Film - Past Lives: The Stanley Diamond Story

The quest of Canadian genealogist Stan Diamond, to reconstruct his family

Records Indexing - Poland. This database has helped countless researchers
discover their roots and has reunited families separated for decades
because of the Holocaust. Stan Diamond's dedication and perseverance, as
portrayed in this documentary, has lead to incredible benefits for all
researchers.

Important: Only members whose dues are current may participate. If you have
not yet renewed, you can do so at the door. New members are welcome to join
