symbol of a feather #germany

Lin <lin2@...>
 

Perhaps someone will be able to help me.
I recently received some documents >from Lippstadt, Germany,
including the death noticed published in a local newspaper.

It is for my great-grandparents. The top of the death notices
of my great grandparents Anschel HUMBERG and Rosa SCHWARZ HUMBERG
(published in the local paper "Der Patriot" in Lippstadt, Germany)
are adorned with a feather.

They died two years apart, one in 1928 and the other in 1930.
I have never seen a feather used as a Jewish religious symbol.
It certainly has nothing to do with the meaning of their last names.
Does anyone know of a known Jewish or German-Jewish meaning for the
feather? They were not authors. Thank you so much.

Sincerely, Lin Herz Palm

In answer to Eric Feintein's question about the DCJR:

I ordered a Birth Act >from DCJR a couple of years ago and was really
happy to receive it. You will be asked to make a donation of your choice
after receipt. I do not believe that they wish to be contacted by phone.
But do persevere and you will receive an answer.

Kind regards,

Naming of child #general

Diana da Costa
 

Hello

I am mystified by the fact that my great-great grandmother chose to give her
sister's name to her daughter when her sister was still very much alive! I
always thought that generally speaking Ashkenazim named after the deceased,
not the living, and I was wondering whether anyone has any ideas as to why
one should name one's child after a very much alive sibling?

The facts are my great-great grandparents, Frances (nee DITTMANN) and Ludwig
HIRSCHMANN, married in February 1875 in New York. Both DITTMANN and
HIRSCHMANN families originated >from Bavaria. Their firstborn was a son but
their second was a daughter who they named Marie, my great-grandmother, who
was born in 1877. Frances, born in 1855, was the eldest of six children,
the youngest of whom was Marie, born in 1872 (and died in 1933) and so only
five years older than her niece.

All ideas gratefully received with many thanks!

Connecticut Medical Examiner Records #general

Steven Greenstein
 

Fellow Genner's:

I am looking for information on the availability of detailed death records (autopsy
report/finding and conclusions) as opposed to death certificates in Connecticut
and:
(1) whether and under what circumstances they were prepared
(2) what years they are available
(3) under what situations they are accessible by the public (relatives)

The context is this : I am trying to validate a long held family story/tragedy
about the death of my great uncle Harry Dunn who died at age 13 by allegedly
falling off a horse drawn cart driven by his father (my ggrandfather) while on his
peddling route northwest of Hartford , CT in the summer of 1918. My g-grandfather
may have had a psychological 'break' following Harry's death >from guilt due to the
event (he reputedly never worked again and became a charge of his family until he
died in 1938). Young Harry's death certificate indicates he died >from endocarditis
that he had for 3 years prior, but we always wondered whether a heart attack may
in fact have been the proximate cause of his death resulting >from the fall -
exacerbated by his heart condition, together with the reluctance of the medical
examiner to state the accident as the official cause of death on the death
certificate.

Detailed medical examiner/autopsy records might shed more light on this-
the question is whether they were prepared back in 1918 in CT. , under what
circumstances and would they be available to the public/relatives?

Thanks.

Connection between ENDE and EISEN families #general

Yonatan Ben-Ari
 

My mother-in-law"s father, Zvi Hirsch EISEN,of Zloczov and New York was in close
contact with the ENDE family in Jerusalem during the latter part of the 19th and
beginning of the 20 cent. No one in these families know if there was a familial
connection or just friends. Does anyone know was what the connection between these
families.

Yoni Ben-Ari, Jerusalem

p.s.I remember as a young man having just made aliya having met ENDE in Rechavia.
It seems that he was a good friend of my grandparents who had no idea of my
future marriage with the EISEN family.

When did the Jews go to Poland? #galicia

Gayle Schlissel Riley
 

from where and when did the Jews travel to Poland? My family was in
Tarnobrzeg in 1757. There were about 100 families on the 1772 census.

Re: Confusing death certificate #general

Paula Blank
 

Thanks to everyone who responded to my question regarding why my great great
grandfather's death cert listed him (and his parents) as having been born in Holland.
A number of people think that this was a mistake by the clerk and that the witness
actually said Poland. this seems the most plausible reason. One other possibility
mentioned was that the witness didn't want the family being associated with
Austria/ Poland and made it up.
