Re: Surname "CHERRY" #general

Louis Kessler
 

"Cherry" sounds close to the Russian "Charney" meaning "black"
often translated >from the Yiddish "Schwartz".

The Hungarian part of the old Austro-Hungarian Empire was divided
into 4 provinces:

White, Black, Big, & Little
hence: Weiss, Schwartz, Gross, & Klein.

Geoffrey Collins <geoffic@...>
 

We reside in Israel.
the Family name is DANZIGGER or DANCYGER. We are looking for distant
antecedents.
Many >from this family made Aliya to Israel >from Czestochowa, Poland
in the 1930s.
Some had lived in Radom in the past.
Yisrael (Israel), Avraham and Yishayahu (Shaya) had returned
there in about 1938, and were later caught by the Germans. They
died in concentration camps.

Azriel was their Father and remained in Israel till his death in 1947.

Chaya Esther Gerichter Azriel's Wife had died previously in Poland in 1928
of Diabetes Mellitus.

Thanks,

Geoffrey Isaac Collins,

I think the name actually means violinist (skrzypek) rather than
violin (skrzypce). I'd expect the name to be transliterated >from
Polish to Russian, so that pronouncing it in Russian would sound close
to the Polish original. I can't type in Russian in JewishGen but I'll
email you what it might look like. I don't think they would use the

FRIEDLAND From Bobruisk #general

Samuel Gelfand
 

Greetings,

Harry Lionel FRIEDLAND was born in 1910, probably in Durban SA, died on
August 10, 1989 and is buried in Redhill Cemetery, Durban. The
inscription on his tombstone reads "Zvi Aryeh Lieb ben Velvel (Wolf ?)
His father and another sibling emigrated >from Bobruisk Belarus,
probably between 1900-1910. I have searched SA Jewish Rootsbank and
Jewish Gen but lack adequate confirmatory evidence to connect them to
my Bobruisk FRIEDLAND(ER) ancestry.

How can I go about obtaining a copy of Harry FRIEDLAND's birth
certificate and documents relating to to his father's immigration and
naturalization?

Re: Seeking middle name in Hebrew #general

Louis Kessler
 

I disagree.

Although "Harry" could be an "Aharon", that is covered by "Albert".

My suggestion is "Tzvi", the Yiddish equivalent of which, is "Hersh"

The Hebrew name Aharon was often the basis for the Americanized names of
Harry and Herbert, using the letters "har".
