Re: the given name SCHMIKA #general

Hi Michael,
On the basis that Schmika could be also be spelled Shmika, I looked this
up in Beider's book of Ashkenazic Given Names, he suggests Sime which is
derived >from Simcha joy. I expect the most common US form would be Simma.
Beider distinguishes Sime >from Shimone.

GREENE of Boston - Thank you #general

On Nov. 13, I asked for help in finding my Greene family of Boston.

By Nov. 14, the group members had located the family and some of their
burial sites, offered to take pictures at the cemetery and showed me the steps
they took to find my family.

I'm touched by how helpful this group has been and hope to repay the
kindness someday by helping someone else.

Re: CONFELD surname origin? #bessarabia

Yefim Kogan
 

Hi Richard,

Name "CONFELD" in Russian should be written "KONFELD", letter "C" does not
produce "K" sound. I looked at the list of people buried in Kishinev
Cemetery. That book gives a good view of what the names were of our
ancestors in Kishinev. I did not find any KONFELDs, but there is a very
close name with many records: "KORNFELD" or "KORENFELD" and found about
dozen records with these names.

How far our ancestors changed their names, that I think is almost impossible
to tell. It reminds me of my relative who changed the name >from FUKS to
TEYLOR upon arriving to the US in 1990s.

------------------------ >from Richard Levine
Is it more likely that my CONFELD ancestors were originally named one of the
COHNFELD, KAHNFELD, ZONFELD, KOHNFELD variants, or that they were actually
named CONFELD or CONFELDT in Kishinev? Alternatively, could their surname
have been originally more like SCHONFELD, SHEINFELD, SCHOENFELD, etc?

Motel MOISE, Strada Piatra, Bucharest #romania

Alchemedia
 

With the help of the wonderful members of this forum (thank you!) I
was able to determine where my 2nd great grandfather lived. Now I'm
hoping someone can point me in the right direction with his name and
family.

In the attached image extracted and enlarged >from Hamburg ship's
manifest 1913 (link below) it appears to be Mottel or Motel MOIS, but
I realize it could easily be an inscription error. Motel MOISE perhaps
seems more likely. Perhaps I am related to Celibi Moise? Probably not.

Anyway, what I do know is that he lived at "Strada Piatra" Bucharest
in 1913. His daughter Sarah (b. 5 May 1876 Romania) married Leon
GOLDFELD (b. 10 Aug 1874 Odessa, Russia) around the turn of the
century. >from what I can gather, they were married in Romania, moved
to Constantinople for several years, then back to Romania for
approximately one year. They immigrated to the USA with their 5
children in 1913 and settled in Philadelphia. I believe her father
remained in Bucharest. Please see image attached. I searched the
Census of Jewish Men in Romania 1942 for relatives but I simply don't
have enough data. Any clues or direction would be greatly appreciated.
I've hit a brick wall!

Yizkor Book Project, October 2012 #usa

Lance Ackerfeld <lance.ackerfeld@...>
 

Shalom,

At the outset of this report, I would like to say that my thoughts, like
many, are with the people have just undergone a tormentful time though
Sandy's onslaught on cities in the United States and Canada. I can only hope
that for all those affected by this storm, that life for them soon returns
to being very normal and very tranquil.

About the Yizkor Book Project - we continue to plug on. I believe that
October can be characterized by a large number of updates to existing
projects, some of which are drawing close to completion. For some of our
updates, we've been working on the addition of tables of contents for
existing projects that, up until now have been without. Immeasurable help
in carrying out these translations is being provided by the Yocheved
Klausner and Sara Mages. Our aim is to continue add in table of contents to
projects without, in order to indicate to you, the readers, of the "gems"
that these Yizkor Books contain. As we translate an article, a blue
hyperlink will be added to the contents and for those main pages that don't
have blue links, it's probably because no one has stepped forward to
coordinate the translation of the particular Yizkor Book. So what are you
waiting for? <g>

Our project, as I'm sure you're aware, relies on the help of a great many
volunteers in the fields translating, transliterating, editing, picture
scanning and typing and we never have too many people involved in our aim of
seeing these books completely translated into English. I'm pleased to note
that apart >from English, we have a small but growing contingent of books
being translated into other languages. For instance, this past month has
seen the addition of Polish translations >from the Staszow book, which has
already translations in English and Hebrew. The addition of these
translations means that more and more people with no knowledge of Hebrew or
Yiddish (the main languages of the Yizkor Books) can now freely access the
important information these books contain in a language that is convenient
for them to read in.

Now to facts and figures - as far as the October figures go, during this
last month we have added these 3 new projects:

About the Yizkor Book Project - we continue to plug on. I believe that
October can be characterized by a large number of updates to existing
projects, some of which are drawing close to completion. For some of our
updates, we've been working on the addition of tables of contents for
existing projects that, up until now have been without. Immeasurable help
in carrying out these translations is being provided by the Yocheved
Klausner and Sara Mages. Our aim is to continue add in table of contents to
projects without, in order to indicate to you, the readers, of the "gems"
that these Yizkor Books contain. As we translate an article, a blue
hyperlink will be added to the contents and for those main pages that don't
have blue links, it's probably because no one has stepped forward to
coordinate the translation of the particular Yizkor Book. So what are you
waiting for? <g>

Our project, as I'm sure you're aware, relies on the help of a great many
volunteers in the fields translating, transliterating, editing, picture
scanning and typing and we never have too many people involved in our aim of
seeing these books completely translated into English. I'm pleased to note
that apart >from English, we have a small but growing contingent of books
being translated into other languages. For instance, this past month has
seen the addition of Polish translations >from the Staszow book, which has
already translations in English and Hebrew. The addition of these
translations means that more and more people with no knowledge of Hebrew or
Yiddish (the main languages of the Yizkor Books) can now freely access the
important information these books contain in a language that is convenient
for them to read in.

Now to facts and figures - as far as the October figures go, during this
