Re: Translation of Betzalel #general

Bernard Weill
 

My hebrew name is Bezalel whereas my English name is Bernard. But that does not
mean a thing. I could have been given the English name Jonathan! There is no
jewish law or custom that says a Hebrew name must be equivalent to an English
name. I don't know where or how this notion came about.
I was always and continue to be puzzled by those who seek answers to this type
of question.

If you want to know what the name Betzalel means in Hebrew, that would seem to
be a more valid question.
The answer to that is that the name Betzalel is composed of two words B'zail
Kail, or in English= in the shadow of G-d. I hope this clarifies the issue.

Re: Why were Jews allowed to immigrate in Cuba in the 1930's? #general

Denkers <spdenker@...>
 

There was a massive emigration of diamond industry affliated Jews (and their
families) into Havana. They formed a large community and industry. They had
their own chief rabbi and created several Orthodox institutions to serve
their own community. After WW2 they returned to Belgium, New York and
Israel. The thriving (but temporary) industry died.

See 2 books -- _Tropical Diaspora_ by Robert Levine and _The Jewish
Community of Cuba_ by Jay Levinson. They tell the entire story of 20th
century Cuban Jewry.

Thousands of Jews emigrated to Cuba through the 1930s and even after the
infamous SS St. Louis affair.

DAVIDSON, Providence, Rhode Island #general

Dear All

In the City directory for 1956, the Lincoln Tire Company of
Providence is run by Jacob (Jack) DAVIDSON and the president
is Norman DAVIDSON. The address was xxx Broad Street.

Norman had a sister, Ruth DAVIDSON, born 1926. As Norman
does not show in the 1930 census, I presume he was born
after the date it was taken. In 1930, the family were living
at xxx Willard Avenue, also in Providence, RI.

Any suggestions to trace Norman and Ruth would be appreciated.

Hello fellow researchers;
I am trying to find a birth record for Mendel GELBWACHS and who his parents

So I suspect he might have been born around the 1870's-1880 time period.
My family was primarily >from Tarnow.which was close by.. so he could have
been >from Tarnow or >from Glogow.

Place of registration as place of birth #general

I am inclined to agree with Herbert Lazarow. My great grandfather was born
in Kobrin about 1858. He relocated to Brest after he was married in 1879.
His children including my grandfather were born in Brest. I have marriage
and birth records which clearly indicate that the family was registered in
Kobrin.

Howard Margol
 

I admit I erred in stating that being registered in Vidzy indicated the
person was probably born in Vidzy. He could have been born in Vidzy, or lived
in Vidzy but not born there, or had some previous connection to Vidzy. The
only way to find the answer to those questions is to research the Vidzy
records.

The main importance of the Vidzy discovery is, it gives the researcher
another town to find records of their ancestors.

A good place to find Vidzy translated records is on the LitvakSIG Zarasai
District Research Web site - http://zarasai.shutterfly.com/

It is with hesitation that I disagree with Howard Margol, who knows much
more about Lithuanian practice than I do. But his answer, that a person
listed in an 1887 census as registered in Vizdy was probably born there,
makes assumptions counter to my understanding of the registration system.
Here is how registration was supposed to work...
