surnames #ukraine

I should preface to say that there weren't too many restrictions
placed on surnames when Jews and non-Jews alike were asked to adopt
them in the early
1800's in much of Eastern Europe (but not all, so I know my comments
above and below are not at all universal). I refer you to Alexander
Beider's books on the subject.

I don't know about Ukraine specifically, but this (adoption of
similar names by Jews and non-Jews) was certainly the case in other
Eastern European areas (Congress Poland). This is to be expected.
Many names simply refer to towns, so there wouldn't really have been
any reason why a non-Jew wouldn't use the name, if he were >from the
same town. Other names refer to professions, many of which would have
been held by Jews and non-Jews (think SMITH----the Germanic version,
SCHMIDT, and spelled like SZMIDT in Polish speaking countries, was
common among Jews).

Of course, some names, such as RABIN or RABINOWICZ would be unique to
Jews, since they refer to Jewish clergy. There are also a number of
"acronym" names (based on Hebrew acornyms) that would probably only
be used by non-jews of by chance, the acronym was similar to an
actual word used for some other reason. Also, though some non-Jews
have the name COHEN/KOHEN today, I think in Ukraine of the 19th
century this would only have been used by Jews refering to their "caste".

Hi all - I've been doing research on my Ukrainian ancestors, and I only
recently become aware that the surnames that they used in the Ukraine,
where also surnames that were used by non-Jews. I discovered this, when I
found matches for those surnames, in familysearch.org, in a databse of a
Ukrainian Church Book (1840-1845). Was this common? How did Ukrainian
Jews get their surnames?

Also, my relatives came >from Uman and Talne. Are there any good
books/bios, about what life was like for Jews in the Ukraine, in the late
1880s? Thanks.

[USA] Governor Changes His Mind Again on More California Public Records Act AB76 SB 76 #general

Jan Meisels Allen
 

Yesterday, the Speaker of the Assembly, John Perez, decided to remove the
provision regarding the amendments to the Public Records Act >from SB 71 and
send that back to the Senate for concurrence and then to the Governor. The
Governor already has on his desk, AB 76 which is the companion bill to SB
71, and contains the Public Records Act provision we are concerned about-it
appeared as if our concerns were addressed by removing Section 4 in SB 71. I
reported that later in the day both the Governor and Senate President said
they would not agree to have SB 71 move with Section 4 removed. This
afternoon, both the Governor and the Senate President did a 180 degree
change and have agreed to Speaker Perez's amendment I SB 71. While the
Governor's website does not have any press release listed, both the Sacramento Bee
and San Jose Mercury News have articles explaining the latest turn of events.

U.S. Consular Registration Certificates, 1907-1918 #general

Ann Rabinowitz
 

One of the helpful databases on Ancestry.com is the U.S. Consular Registration
Certificates, 1907-1918. This is where American citizens abroad registered at the
consular or legation office where they were either visiting, studying or living.
Details such as the name of the registrant; consulate where registered; date and
place of birth; general travel data; names, places of birth; and residences of
spouse and children; and registrant's current place of residence; were amongst
those on the Registration Certificates according to Ancestry.com.

Quite a number of those registered, many of whom were women, who had returned to
Europe to visit their families, expressed a desire to return home to America as
soon as possible as they were caught in the turmoil of a world at war. Many stated
that they had lost their passports, run out of money and their relatives had none
either, and other indigent circumstances.

Several examples of registrations taken at the Riga American Consulate are as
follows:
Mrs. Pauline Rabinowitz, born August 22, 1891, Philadelphia, Pennsylvania, who left
America on March 10, 1914 and arrived in Riga on March 29, 1914. Pauline had no
children and was visiting relatives. She resided at Schwimstrasse 24, Riga,
Latvia, care of Mrs. Bettie Kohen. Contacts in case of emergency were her husband
Harry Rabinowitz or Mrs. Becky Harrison, 862 Jennings Street, New York, NY.

Her husband Harry was born in Kelme, and was temporarily residing in Johannesburg,
South Africa, because of business. There was also a statement by Pauline that she
was going to join her husband in South Africa or return home as soon as possible
after visiting her relatives. The only pertinent fact missing was her maiden name.

Another registration in Riga was:
Mrs. Adele Clarson, born June 23, 1886, in Talsen, Latvia, who left her residence
at 260 Sydney Street, Cambridge, Massachusetts, on June 25, 1914, and arrived in
Latvia on July 10, 1914, with the intent of visiting her parents. Her address
where she was staying was Grossestrasse, Sassmaken, pr. Talsen, Kurland, Russia.

She was married to Albert Clarson, who had been born in Riga and she was traveling
with her young children: Elvira Clarson, born April 4, 1909, Somerville, MA;
Beatrice Clarson, born June 24, 1910, South Boston, MA; and Adelia Clarson, born
July 12, 1912, South Boston, MA. Imagine traveling with three children all under
five years of age!

Yet another Riga registration was:

Mrs. Albert Sulzberger (maiden name Mamie Caro), who was born March 27, 1889, in
Riga, Latvia, and who was visiting her relatives. Traveling with her was her
daughter Lottie Sulzberger, who was born January 31, 1909, in Philipsburg, NJ. She
was residing at Kleine Munzstrasse 16, Q4, care of Mrs. Press. Her husband Albert
was born in Lodz, Poland. They lived in Paterson, NJ, at 18 Lane Street.

Apart >from the registrations >from Europe there were also ones >from other parts of
the world such as those of Jewish students studying in yeshivas in Mea Shearim such
as Mordechai Rabinowitz, and those in Melbourne, Australia, such as Isard Zeltner,
studying oil skin and waterproof manufacturing, and other such pursuits.

There was also those individuals who left America to find work such as Jack Zemel
who went to Vancouver, Canada, to work as a signwriter. And others, who went on
business such as Joseph Zimmelman, who was born in Poland and went to Buenos Aires
to sell diamonds for Weinberg Brothers in NYC. His wife and six children also
lived in Argentina.

If you wish to delve further into documents of this period, there are also U.S.
Consular Registration Applications, 1916-1925, for those who wished to extend
their stays abroad. These applications are just as interesting as the
Registration Certificates. One, in particular, was for a Charles R. Cantor, the
son of Abraham Cantor, born Kurland, December 1, 1876, who was a major hotel,
saloon and cabaret owner in the Panama Canal Zone. He left America in 1913 and
was married to Celia Frank.

The documents in his file provided not only a fascinating business history, but
one of his charitable endeavors as well. As the consul wrote in one document,
Charles R. Cantor "was known by every soldier and sailor on the Isthmus and there
is not one that would not do almost anything for him."

The Moderator has posted a note on 19 June concerning an article in a
Louisville, Kentucky newspaper article about DNA testing and its powers
in revealing a relationship between two individuals. To my mind this
article should be taken with a large grain of salt. The relationships
revealed by such testing may uncover a shared descent >from a common
ancestor who lived 100 or 1,000 years ago, almost always the latter.

Given the small Ashkenazi gene pool, two randomly chosen Ashkenazim
share so many genes in common (and thus descent >from common ancestors)
that they appear to be 4th cousins of one another. For this reason, it
would be most unusual for two of us not to have multiple common
ancestors, most of whom lived many many centuries ago. I'd suggest that
money spent on DNA testing could be better spent in supporting GerSig!

Dear Genners,

I've posted 2 photographs of 'someones' wedding in Palestine March 1945. (probably
Tel-Aviv)

My late father was serving in the British Army for a short while in Palestine and
as he is featured in both photographs he must have been close to the couple being
married, but who were they?

I would love to be able to pass these photos on to the family concerned

Both photos are on ViewMate at the following addresses.
