Here is another question for our specialists of 19th century
polish-jewish society.
My great-great-grand-father Lewek SZTETYNER is listed in the 1870 directory of
Warszawa
(http://genealogyindexer.org/frame/d65/475/d)
with the occupation "rybak", which my (old) polish dictionary translates
as fisherman. What kind of fisherman would that be ?
Thank you for your help

Re Seeking Information about Unusual First name in Polish Document #general

My father's Hebrew name is Chanine and as a consequence so is my son's.
I've found this name to be one of the most difficult first names to locate.
In the above spelling, Chanine, it is on JewishGen, but not before you pass
through many female responses in the Jewish Given Names Database. I know
you believe your spelling is correct and I believe you do have a version of
the spelling....

The recent discussion on the digest was regarding the Hebrew name "Chanaya."
It is spelled, chet, nun, nun, yud ending with heh. It should not be confused
with the more common (amongst Ashkenazim) Aramaic name "Chanina" (which seems
to be the one mentioned above)." Chanina is spelled chet, nun, yud ending with
aleph. These two names are also pronounced differently. Another different name
mentioned earlier in the thread was "Chanan." This name, although with same root,
is used today as an independent name, but was generally not used amongst
Askenazim as such until recent times. "Chanan", with Ashkenazic pronunciation
"Chonon/Chonen" was used by Yiddish speakers as a truncated form of the Hebrew
name Elchanan

Looking for Edith and Judith WAAS #general

Michael Waas
 

Hi,

Thanks for all the help offered yesterday, I will be getting the
information I need early next week >from one of our very valuable
contributors. Thanks again, JewishGen!

While I wait for confirmation, I would like to find out what became of
Edith WAAS (nee DUBIN) and her daughter Judith Waas. If anyone knows
anything, please contact me.

Edith was born circa 1901 in NYC and Judith was born circa 1932.
Judith is probably still alive, which makes it all the more important
that I find this information out.

Best,

Michael Waas

JewishGen Discussion Group #JewishGen In honor of International Archives Day 2012 new databases on Eretz Israel #general

Rose Feldman <rosef@...>
 

In honor of International Archives Day 2012 on June 9th and virtual
exhibition by the Israeli Igud [organization] of Archives and
Information
http://www.facebook.com/israelgenealogy,
IGRA has uploaded nine new databases to its BETA search engine. All
the databases deal with Eretz Israel spanning the period of 1908-1945.
We thank three archives for their cooperation in making some of these
databases available to the public: the Haifa Municipal Archive, the
Petah Tikvah Historical Archive and the Aviezer Yellin Archive of
Jewish Education in Israel and the Diaspora. The databases for Safed
span the period of 1433-2003. For the present the databases can be
searched in English only. The family and given names in the Hebrew
databases have been transliterated to English.
The databases are:
List of Students & Staff of Gymnasia Haivrit, Yaffo 1908-9
First National Conference of Edot Hamizrah in Eretz Israel – Protocol 1925
Voters'List for Haifa 1928
Voters' List for Municipal Council Petah Tikva 1930
Voters' List for Municipal Council Petah Tikva 1932
Members of the Teachers' Council (Histadrut) 1939
Hebrew Soldiers of the Yishuv who fell and perished in World War II 1940-1945
Safed Burials 1433-2003
Safed collection of various documents 1912-1947

The databases are accessible at http://genealogy.org.il/databases/ ,
you only need to register (free) on our website.

The name Menachem Nuchem #ukraine

lgellnick@...
 

I had a great-uncle named Menachem Nuchem and understand that many Jewish
boys in the Ukraine were given this name in honour of Menachem Nuchem
Twersky, of Chernobyl, the first rebbe of the Chernobyl Hassidic dynasty
whose sons and grandsons are credited with spreading Hassidism throughout
the Ukraine.

Hatte Rubenstein Blejer asked:

... Is there any significance of the given name of Max (Mordechai) Reib's father
-- Menachem Nuchem? I looked in Beider but didn't find anything about
specific usages of this name, but I notice that there are several important
rabbis >from Volhynia and nearby with this name during this time period....
