Re: Ashkenazim naming children for living people #general

Perhaps more likely is that the father's name was something Abraham (with Abraham
representing the given name of the grandfather which may have alternately been used
as a surname). Clerical reversals of names were quite common for that place and time.

Ashkenazim naming children for living people #general

David Goldman
 

Hello, Jewishgenners.
We generally know that there is a custom among Ashkenazi Jews not to name
children after living relatives. Sephardim do name after living relatives,
although I know this practice did not exist among some Moroccan Jews.

However, I came across a record >from 200 years ago of Jews who were part of
the old French/German Jewish community in France. In this record, the father
was named Abraham, and the newborn child was also named Abraham. I assumed that
this meant that this family or families of Ashkenazim may have actually been
Sephardim who had assimilated, although their last names are just
Ashkenazi.Is this a valid scenario among such Ashkenazim?

On the other hand, how do we then understand that some Moroccan Jews did
not name after living relatives as was the case among other Sephardim? I
have been told some Moroccan Jews who originated in Spain did name after
the living, while others did not do it. What makes this more complicated is
that Moroccan Jews were apparently identified as being either
"Spanish-speaking" Sephardim and "Arabic-speaking" Sephardim (perhaps
northern versus southern Morocco).

Thanks,
David Goldman

searching - ROZET from Vilna, Vitebsk #general

Marty Meyers <martymeyers@...>
 

I recently found my great-grandmother's sister Riklia FAJNBERG married
a widower Abram ROZET in Vilna in 1912. Riklia's family was >from Gelvan (Gelvanoi)
and her father was Eliasz ben Lejb. While the online indexed marriage record shows
Abram as 67 years old and Riklia as 33, other records I have indicate that Riklia
would have been 53 years old in 1912.

If this sounds familiar, please contact me privately at

Experience with Perpetual Care of Graves Overseas #general

Dina Silberstein <dina.silberstein@...>
 

Hello Fellow Researchers,
Does anyone have experience with perpetual care of their loved ones'
graves in a city overseas? I found my great-grandparents' graves in
Berlin, Germany and would like them to be maintained but I am having a
hard time getting in touch with the cemetery. They answered my emails
originally but now are not. Also how can I trust that they will
maintain the graves since I am not there on a regular basis?

Any help and/or guidance would be much appreciated.

Thank you,

Volunteer HTML / webpage designers needed for the KehilaLinks Project #belarus

Susana Leistner Bloch
 

Dear Friends,

Although we have a wonderful team of dedicated and overworked
volunteers, there are not enough of them and prospective webpage
owners have to wait for months to get technical help.

If you have the necessary skills we urge you to volunteer and help
someone create a webpage dedicated to a Kehila / Shtetl / Gemeinde /
Town / Immigrant Neighbourhood, and in this way honour and memorialize
the Jewish community that once lived there and also provide a valuable
resource for their descendants.

Please contact us : <bloch@mts.net>
