Re: PODMAZO #belarus

Susan Slusky asks about the origin of the surname Podmazo. According to
Alexander Beider in his book "A Dictionary of Jewish Surnames >from
Russian Empire" Podmazo is found in Borisov a Toponym >from the village
of Podmazeh'e in the Slutsk District.

A Google search "acronym for mi zera Aharon" brings up information about
the "mazo" as a surname. Perhaps further posts to JewishGen discussion
and rabbinic groups will yield other suggestions.

My family in Borisov (Barysaw) appears to have been the PODMAZOs
although they used Mazin in this country based on the evidence >from
the naturalization petition I found.

Mazo is said to be an acronym for mi zera Aharon. And Pod is a
Russian preposition meaning under. So what does that make Podmazo?
Some sort of lesser branch of the family? Perhaps it is significant
that when they changed the name here the pod was dropped. Maybe that
made them higher class?

The list of WWII dead in Borisov includes several Mazos and a couple
of Podmazos. And there are a number of Podmazos in the Ellis Island
database immigrating >from Borisov.

Anyone know something about the name?

Re: Relatives of Chaim Lev & Hinde Halpern #general

Do you know Hindie's maiden name? It makes the search much easier.
Then you can put the 2 surnames into the Jewishgen search. Many women
were not using their married name because they only had a religious
marriage; not a civil one.

Dvinskers/Dinaburgers in NYC/Boston? (Was re: New book "Remembering Dvinsk" (Latvia) published by Yizkor-Books-In-Print) #general

andrew@...
 

The announcement of the publication of the Yizkor Book for
Dvinsk/Dinaburg prompts me to look for connections among Genners

I have been researching the NYC landsmanschaft "Tiferes Achim Anshei
Dinaburg" (and its associated Dvinsker groups -- there were at least
three others whose membership had significant overlap).

The reason for my interest is that, while I have no documentary
evidence for where my great-grandparents and their nuclear families
came from, they were all members of this landsmannschaft -- or at
least, all their weddings were officiated at by the rabbi of
"T.a.a.D." and most of them are buried in the landsmannschaft's
section of the Mount Nebo Cemetery in Queens. [>from what I can tell,
though, this landsmannschaft was about 2/3 landsleit, and even if they
were landsleit, that doesn't mean they came >from Dinaburg itself (as
opposed to one of the nearby towns) so this isn't actually strong
evidence.]

So I'm taking the "Friends, Acquaintances, and Neighbors" approach and
also taking the opportunity to do a thorough research project that can
give back to the Jewish genealogy community by providing a
consolidated source like those I've been able to use on some of my
other branches.

Please be in touch if you have ancestors who:

(1) are known to have been part of a NYC or Boston Dvinsker association,
(2) came >from Dvinsk to NYC or Boston between 1880 and 1920,
(3) have marriage certificates where the officiant is "Louis Klein,
Rev. of T.a.a.D." or "Peretz Gordon, Cantor of Tiferes achim anshei
Dinaburg"
(4) are buried in one of the TaaD sections of Mount Nebo, Mount
Hebron, Washington, or Mokom Sholem cemeteries (I have a list at
http://tinyurl.com/TaaD-Graves).

Thanks,
Andrew Greene

Given names Joel and Louis #general

joyweave
 

I am puzzled by the two names of one of my uncles. I knew him as Louis, but
when he arrived in America in 1902 at the age of five, his name on the
ship's manifest was given as Joel. No one is now living who can tell me
more about this. I thought his tombstone might give his correct Hebrew
name, but I found that no stone had ever been erected for him. I asked
about the record at the cemetery office and they had nothing about his
Hebrew name. They directed me to the funeral home, but it no longer exists.

So the question is: is there any connection between the names Joel and
Louis or might his name have been, for example, Joel Leib?
