Re: Yiddish Theater in Great Britain #yiddish

Adelle Gloger
 

Thank you to David Harris for the posting of Yiddish Theater
Professionals/Amateurs in Great Britain. It was a most impressive list
and a most impressive peice of work on his part to translate and post
such a list.

My only connection to the Yiddish Theater in NYC and Cleveland, Ohio is
that my late mother-in-law was a cousin to Bella, who married Paul Muni
who was >from Cleveland. My mother's-in-law father, Meyer Orchen (they
claimed to have entered the USA in 1906 with the name of Hamshanski----
it has not been proved) was a stage manager for Tomashevsky in NYC, and
later in the Yiddish Theater in Cleveland. He died in Cleveland in 1928.

Thank you, again to David.

Dear JewishGen Community,

that Immigration records at the Canadian Archives are now online.
The database currently covers the years 1925 to 1935. The information
provided gives name, age, country, ship, microfilm reel, etc.
The database is searchable by surname or ship name as well as
Canadian ports of arrival as well as New York, Boston and Providence,RI
for immigrants whose destination was Canada.

There is also new information on this site that discusses accessing
other years of immigration,etc. They also list other Canadian locations
that have microfilm available. The URL is:

In response to Michael Sharwood's introduction: there is a real estate broker
in my area named J(oseph?) Shayovitz. If you would like to contact him, his
business address is 1838 Coney Island Avenue, Brooklyn, New York 11230.

Good luck.

Re: Roette and Raizel: #galicia

Abraham J Heschel <binmoses@...>
 

Diane Glazer Jacobs has asked "Can anyone also tell me what might Rose or
Ruth's Hebrew
name be?"
Rose/Rosa, are usually a secularization of the Yiddish "Reizel" meaning a
Rose. Often it is actually Blima Reizel, and its Hebrew version is
Shoshana. There is also a Yiddish name of Reitza, as well as Reisha. They
all probably evolved >from Reizel, but became totally separate names.
Etta/Ettie are usually Ettel, a very popular Yiddish name. Ruth/Rus is a
Biblical name, the GGM of King David and one of the great heroines of the
Bible. It is I believe an uncoomon name in Eastern Europe but there are
countless exceptions to all Eastern European Jewish "name" rules, as I
have come acros authentic Yiddish names such as "Tuna" (Female name, and
male nickname), Vita (Female name), Bopshe (Female) as well as Biblical
names such as Ovadiah (Male), Kalev (Male) and Shem (Male).

There are lists of the origins many authentic Jewish names in Rabbinic
literature since the exact and proper spelling is mandatory for the
Ketubah and other Marriage certificates. Those who wish further
information on specific names should feel free to contact me privately,
though there doubtlessly are Genners with far greater expertise in this
matter than I.

Re: Latvian versus Lithuanian versus Prussian/German #latvia

Claire Petersky
 

Courland was definitely German rather than Slavic.
FWIW, one of my relatives (and he's related to others on this list) says
that there's an old family story that his family line came >from Holland --
that they emigrated to Courland sometime around 1700. This would probably
then link (further and further back) to Spain and the Sephardim, not to
Germany and Central Europe.

I have no evidence for this, but so far, there's been some kernel of truth
to all the old family stories I've heard before, even if they aren't
wholly accurate.

Any reason for a family to leave Holland and come to Courland?
