A recent ViewMate posting of a tombstone with the name of "Natan Nate"
(Hebrew letters nun-taf-nunsofit nun-tet-ayin) raises the question for me
of the name nun-tet-ayin.

Is this typically meant as a nickname "Nate", an alternative to the formal name
of Natan or Nathan.
Or is this properly meant as a second given name, "Nateh", perhaps?
The person in question was my great-grandfather. His name, as written in
his ketuba, was spelled differently than that shown in the Viewmate posting.
On his ketuba it was spelled nun-taf-nunsofit nun-aleph-tet-aleph. The name
written in Latin characters on his passenger manifest was Notel. It appears
that, rather than a nickname, Nata or Nota was used as a second given name.

Baron de Hirsch Cemetery, NY - request for tombstone photograph #general

Michael Waas
 

Hi,

I recently found out that my g-g-g grandfather may be buried in Baron de
Hirsch cemetery on Staten Island. I have yet to find out his burial plot
information, but would someone be able to potentially photograph his
tombstone, should it still exist?

The name on the tombstone should be Joseph BRIEF.

Best,

before heading to the cemetery.

Re: Searching for documents - Patent Applications #general

Shalom, Jan,

I use http://www.freepatentsonline.com/ and then search by surname. Since a
number of my relatives were "handy", this has proven to be a rich source of
information, especially in cases in which relatives were granted a patent
jointly.

Can anyone shed light on patent applications - specifically, are there
searchable records, how far back do these records go, and how long is
the period under which a patent is protected? Does it make sense to
anyone else that a patent application might actually be beneficial to
someone doing family genealogy?

Please respond publicly as I think the answers to this question might
be of interest to others.

Patent applications in the Univted States are available at Ancestry.com
Select Advanced Search, put in the surname and then under "Keywords" enter
the word "patent". Then select "U.S. Patent and Trademark Office Patents,
1790-1909" for results.

There are several benefits to genealogy. First, you can find out what kind
of patents were applied for and who applied for each one. Second, you can
find out where the applicant(s) lived at that time. One of my husband's
relatives invented several variations of thrashing machines. I have been
able to see the original applications on line, and was lucky enough to find
an original sales brochure for one of them at a state library, in full color.

Re: Information Available From Moscow Central Archives #general

The record group I'd like to find is physicians in Moscow. My grandmother
had a sister, born about 1901 in Borisov, who was a physician in Moscow.
We have no contact after 1929, but we have a Moscow street address.

I'd love to know anything at all about this aunt - particularly descendants, but
also when and where she died and anything about her post-1929 life.

On line 27 after Oseritzy it says Gub. Minsk, the province that

letter A, but it's hard to read the name. Perhaps it's Aisik?

Help, please!

My paternal grandfather was Nachim Funk >from Oseritzy (Azeritz) in
Minsk. I have his immigration papers and the ships manifest, but I
can't make out the critical area of closest friend or relative left
behind. He and my grandmother, Dweire, came over on the Lituania in
Nov. of 1909, port of departure was Libau. They are on lines 26 &
27of the ship's manifest. You can see the information by doing a
search by ship on www.Ellisisland.org. Or you can copy and paste the
following address into your browser.

Here's my problem. Lines 26 & 27, Column 11 lists the name of close
relative or friend still living where they came from. I can make out
Mr. *****Funk, but can't decipher the first name. On the next line
I can see Oseritzy, but can't figure out the remainder of the line.
Can anyone make out the first name and the line below it?? This is
the only window I have been able to open into my family who were still
in Russia when my grandparents left.

Thank you!

Reason for name change? #general

rosecitykitty@...
 

My great-grandmother's given name was Mine (Minke). She arrived in the USA in
1889 or 1890. In all of the documents I have found on her prior to 1930 her name
is given as Minnie. Suddenly, at the age of 65 and after being in America for 40
years, she began calling herself Yetta. My mom, her granddaughter, never even knew
that her grandmother's name was Minnie. When I was born she named me after her by
giving me a middle name that started with the letter "Y". I guess she never
questioned why someone named Minke would be calling herself Yetta, and she didn't
find out until ten years later that her grandmother's given name was Mine. I have
heard of people adopting amuletic names, but I don't think that Yetta falls into
that category. Does anyone have any thoughts on why she would suddenly change her
name? Could it be that there was a death in the family and she wanted to honor
that person's memory? Any ideas or thoughts would be appreciated.

Origin of the name Itie #general

Can anyone tell me what the origin of the given name Itie is? Is it related to
the Hebrew name Itai? And any suggestions about what name might have been
adopted by this person after arriving in the USA? He was originally >from Iasi,
Romania and I am trying to determine if he could be my grandfather's younger
brother.I know that he had a brother named Abe and rumor has it that there was
another brother also but no one remembers his name. I did try the JewishGen
name finder but came up with no results. Thanks for your help.
