Several weeks ago some one posted a message and on the bottom they noted
they were searching (among others) TERLOW/TERLOWSKY. A colleague of mine
has this name, she and her husband emigrated >from russia to Israel in the
1970's. I may have accidently deleated the message.
I've checked the archives and the message I am looking for does not appear.
(Ann Rabinowitz posted a similar message but for american TERLOWSKYs)

By coincidence (or not) my colleague's maiden name was RABINOWITZ.

If whoever posted the message would contact me privately I would be happy
to transfer the message to my colleague.

Happy Purim >from Israel,

In other words, if one document says someone is Sender and another says
Shmuel, are they probably the same person?"

For Lithuania Jews, the name Priva/Prive was used for women, and women
with this name who immigrated to the US sometimes adopted the English
name Pauline.

If you are going to the Family Records Centre and you don't want a (brisk!)
ten minute walk, get out at the Angel Tube Station and turn right to the
second bus stop. Take a number 19 or 38, and alight at the next stop after
Sadlers Wells.

Fw: Question re name Ruth #general

It is usual, though, for a female convert to select and adopt a Hebrew
name (usually but not necessarily biblical, so she can take her pick).
It would be nice if she were to select a biblical name. Whatever name she
picks she will be known as "So-and-so bat Avraham ve-Sarah."

In this connection, it's perhaps interesting to recall that Jews under
nazi rule in Austria (perhaps elsewhere also) were forced to adopt a
middle name that presumably identified them as Jews. So when my parents
were granted passports to leave Vienna for the UK in 1939, the documents
identified them as Herbert Israel and Erna Sara Finkelstein.

Dzielnica Kazimierz or Dzielnica Kazimierzowska identified Kazimierz
District or sometimes it was known as Zydowska (Jewish) Dzielnica.
