A Final Thank You to JOWBR and HDB Volunteers and Donors #usa

Nolan Altman
 

I'd like to personally thank all the donors and volunteers who
I've worked with over the past dozen years or so. Without your
contributions of material, time and expertise, JewishGen's
databases would not be the valuable asset they have become. It
has been a real honor to build searchable databases for the
greater genealogical community and especially to create permanent
records for the disappearing remnants of Jewish life in many of
your ancestral communities. The satisfaction I receive >from
talking/emailing with donors and researchers who find material on
their family has been keeping me going for the last few years.

However, the demands on my time to administer JOWBR and the
Holocaust Database for JewishGen in the current operating
environment have become too great for me to handle effectively.
Therefore, it is with great regret that I have tendered my
resignation as JewishGen's VP for Data Acquisition. I'm sure that
JewishGen will continue to grow their databases and I encourage
you to continue to submit data and photos and volunteer for data
entry, translating and other technical assignments.

As you know, it's a small community and I'm sure our paths will
cross. I hope to see many of you in Boston or other upcoming
conferences!

Re: Romanian jewish history #romania

Yefim Kogan
 

Hi Robert, please see answers below:


1. Does anybody know if Zorel is a hebrew first name? If yes, is it also
common among non-jewish Romanians?
---------------
According to Alexander Beider's dictionary of Jewish names the closest name
is Zorekh, and derived name Zore, Zortshe, Zorekhl. Very possible that
Zorel is one of derivation.

2. Does anybody know if any jewish families migrated south to Dobrogea
(southeast Romania) as a result of the Romanian pogroms of the late 19,
early 20th century, especially the Iasi pogroms?
--------------
Dobrudja was not part of Romania, or Principalities (Walachia, Moldova). It
was part of Turkey, under direct Ottoman control. In 1870s the Dobruja
region was swapped with two districts in Bessarabia (Izmail and Kagul). I
assume that after Romania was established in late 1870s people moved,
including Jews. Possible that pogroms were reason too.

Re: Origin of the surname Meixler #hungary

smartlines@...
 

I think, the explanation is much simpler. The original name might have been
Metzler (butcher) which, due to a mistake by the notary or an other
official, was misread as Meixler (misreading "t" as "i" and "z" as "x" is
easy and many similar mistakes can be found in Jewish BMD registers in
Hungary where many rabbis spoke Yiddish or Hungarian better than the
official German language).

Re: Why two different manifests for same people, ship? #general

Eva Lawrence
 

The name BRUDNYA would be the name given to the wife of Mr BRUDNY. She was
apparently the person referenced in the second manifest. The ending 'A' is
used in Russian for women's surnames, which are always differentiated >from
those of their male relatives.

Viewmate translation - German #general

Russ Maurer <RMaur@...>
 

I have posted a fragment of an 1894 birth record, in German, >from Stary
Sambor (today in Ukraine). This fragment is the description of the father.
I was not able to read or translate the middle line, although the first
ViewMate respondent has identified the first word in the line as ledig (single).
Thus, I now have "Nathan Reisner, single _________ in Nanczulka Mala."
The column heading says, "Name and surname, marital status, occupation, and
residence of the father." What is the missing word (presumably Nathan's
occupation)? It is on ViewMate at the following address:

http://www.jewishgen.org/ViewMate/responselist.asp?key=25685


I have left the image open for additional responses. Please respond via

Viewmate Postcard Translations -- Polish or Russian #general

Arnold Davidson
 

I have posted two postcard scans on Viewmate for which I need loose
translations. They are in Cyrillic script but I don't know if the
language is Polish or Russian. I would appreciate more exact
translations of any important information they may contain. They were
probably sent by my maternal grandmother to her in-laws in the US after
my grandfather's death in 1911.

The postings are on Viewmate at the following addresses:
