Question for the group #galicia

Daniel Klapper
 

Hello Galitzianers!

I wonder if I can ask for help and advice I seemed to have hit a
genealogical wall.

The Klapper family >from Ulanow my branch and the Klapper family
from Lvov share many common names that other branches do not.
Ulanow and Lvov are around 100 miles apart so it is conceivable
that someone would move one to the other. Records stop at about
1880 with the marriage of Kiva Lustig and Rywka Klapper of Lvov.

Do you advise DNA testing? Which one? Has anyone had
experience with trying to prove relationships?

Many thanks in advance for your input.

Best wishes

Re: Yehuda Leyb LOEWE #germany

Gerhard Buck <gbuckidstein22@...>
 

To me as a researcher in Western Germany the question arises, if your
difficulties are caused by a wrong name, a frequent cause for a brick
wall. Is the name really "Yehuda Leyb LOEWE"?

"LOEWE" with uppercase letters means in this forum that this name was
a family name. Did Jews have family names in that region in the early
1700s? I have just solved a comparable problem in my region. A family
name adopted in 1841 and looking like a Jewish given name was
transferred to several preceding generations as the last name,
although family names did not exist and the second name was a
patronymic. The source was a well known genealogy company.

The first two names (Yehuda Leib) can also be a source for trouble.
"Leib" does not mean body but lion or Loewe. The German word Loewe was
changed a lot, when Jews used it as a given name. It was the secular
form for the religious Hebrew name Yehuda. In Hebrew sources
(headstones, signatures) we find Yehuda and in German sources (lists,
registers) we read L=C3=B6w(e) and all its many variations. Leib is one of
them. So the first two names may be a combination of the religious and
the secular given name of one person.

The result for Yehuda Leyb LOEWE: we are confronted with one name only
and we should look for an additional different one. There are of
course examples for the same given name for father and son, yet they
are rare.

My contribution shall not solve the problem. It will only give hints
for new ideas.

Yehuda Leyb LOEWE #germany

Bruce Brill <bruce.brill@...>
 

Hello,

Every couple years I post this inquiry, hoping an answer may be out there:

According to the Memoirs of the Lubavitch Rebbe,Yehuda Leyb, the
great-grandson of the Maharal settled in Posen City (probably in the
very early 1700's). I'm searching for ANY information about him and
his (according to the Lubavitch Rebbe) many offspring.

Thanks in advance for any help you can provide.

Re: Question about Yiddish Author Jacob Dinezon's Sister #general

Scott Davis
 

I wish to thank the three people who responded to my inquiry about the
name of Jacob Dinezon's older sister with whom he lived in Warsaw.
With the help of Nicole Berline >from France, Adam Teitelbaum >from the
U.S., and Simon Srebrny >from Germany I was not only able to obtain
information about Dinezon's sister, Fajga (Feige) Kac, but also to
verify Jacob Dinezon's birth year (1851). I have written an
image-packed blog post detailing the work of these wonderful
researchers: https://www.jacobdinezon.com/whats-in-a-name/.

Sincerest thanks to Nicole, Adam, Simon, and JewishGen for providing a
way to locate this information in this centennial year of Jacob Dinezon's death!
