BRUNOV = FRUMOV?? #belarus

Elaine Bush <erbush@...>
 

What is the possiblity that a transliteration of BRUNOV was actually
FRUMOV? Asking those who have a better knowledge of handwriting than
I

My next question-- is it possible to see the original handwriting?
Copies of the transliteration?

This is >from the 1816 Revision List for Logishin, Pinsk, Minsk.

My FRUMOV family was >from the area.

Re: curious about paternal heritage #general

Steve's idea of securing his birth certificate is a good one, so may I
just add to look for his death certificate as well. Depending on how
much the informant knew, it may contain some useful information.
Sometimes the cemetery and mortuary has some information on file as well.

Re: FELLUS #sephardic

Hi Maria,

FELLOUS is a well-established name among Tunisian Jews. Paul Sebag
writes (and I translate loosely): >from the Arabic fellûs, "little
chicken", children's nickname transformed into a family name. Found in
Tunis in the 1800s, kettubah of Isaac son of David Fellous, and Simha
daughter of Joseph Camio dated 22 september 1858 (registres
matrimoniaux de la communauté juive portugaise de Tunis n° 666).

Best regards,

Thierry Samama

Dear Maria,

You wrote:

My grandfather was born in Israel in the late 1880s but I'm not
certain if he was Israeli but, I'm certain that he was a sephardi.
There is also a trace of Ashkenazi. The family moved to Cyprus in the
1900s. Their
surname sounds like FELLUS or Fellas. Does anyone know the country of
origin? Any info would be greatfully appreciated.

A correction: if your grandfather was born in the 1880s in Palestine,
he couldn't be Israeli but Turk as the country was part of the Ottoman
Empire. Of course, he could be citizen of another country if his
parents had a foreign citizenship.

The surname FELLUS or FELLOUS was mainly found among Tunisian Jews.
Accordong to Paul Sebbag (Les Noms des Juifs de Tunisie. Paris,
L'Harmattan, 2002. <Names of Yinisia Jews>, Fellus/Fellous means:
"chick - an affective name use for My poppet".
The SephardicGen Databases found at:
http://www.sephardicgen.com/databases/databases.html
has 16 citations for FELLOUS, the French spelling of the name.

Jewish Records Indexing - Poland URL #general

Stanley Diamond
 

We are pleased to announce that effective immediately,
Jewish Records Indexing - Poland will be exclusively using
the jri-poland.org URL for all the pages on its website.

We recommend you change the bookmarks on all JRI-Poland
pages to insure that you quickly find the pages of interest.

Enter JRI-Poland through the homepage at www.jri-poland.org
if you want to see all current announcements.

The adoption of our own exclusive domain name/URL is an
additional effort to inform the entire Jewish genealogical
community that JRI-Poland is an independent organization
with its own administration, volunteers and fundraising.

"JewishGen.org" should no longer appear in the URL for
any JRI-Poland web pages. However, JRI-Poland continues
to be hosted by JewishGen and run on the JewishGen servers.

We would like to take this opportunity to thank the JRI-Poland
web team of Howard Fink, Meira Puterman and Bryan Langer,
and JewishGen system administrator Gary Sandler for the
immense effort they have put in over the last month to make
this shift possible.

JRI-Poland Board member Alan Greenberg also helped with
his technical skills augmented by his knowledge of JRI-Poland
history.

Our appreciation is also extended to JewishGen's managing
director Warren Blatt for his support of this important move.
