Re: Hebrew name on gravestone #germany

Judith Romney Wegner
 

His tombstone in Lawrence MA, also lists his
father's name in Hebrew and was translated for me. Is this common practice?
Yes, it is not merely common, it was absolutely routine for Jewish
tombstones until well into the 20th century, when some Jews in western
countries (especially non-orthodox branches) began to "drop" the Hebrew
information. Many of my anglo-Jewish antecedents who died less than 75
years ago and are buried in an orthodox cemetery in London have only their
English names on their stones!

This is highly regrettable, as it has deprived many jgenners of a handy way
of finding out the names of their greatgrandfathers. For instance, I was
disappointedwhen a Jewishgen friend in Vienna visited the stone of my
husband's grandfather (d. 1926), and reported to us that there was only
German on it-- no Hebrew name given. If only the grandfather had been
identified as Yehudah ben "so-and-so" we would have learned the Hebrew
given name of my husband's greatgrandfather, which would have taken us back
one more generation -- and might well have helped us pinpoint him in
Austrian archives.

Re: BESNASWIESKO #general

Hi - it was probably Beznazwisko in Polish = "without a surname".

Can someone possibly help me with the origin of the Polish name BESNASWIESKO ?
It was later changed to BESNASKO. Has anyone else ever come across this
name?

Litvaks expelled from Riga #courland #latvia

steven weiss <szome@...>
 

My grandmother was always proud to have been born in Riga, Courland in 1894.
She wrote that her family was expelled >from Riga around 1897. My
grandmother's parents were both Litvaks, so I assume that the family did not
have legal status to live in Riga. Would this expulsion order have been
published in the official Russian Government Gazette for Kurland Gubernia,
the Kurlandskya Gubernskie Vedomosti?

Also according to an article in Avotaynu (Fall 1997), "legal adoption
papers" for Litvak families allowing them to live in Riga, exist in the
Kaunas Archives. Has anyone researched these papers?

My great-grandfather Hyman HURWITZ, originally >from Svencionys, Lithuania
and his wife Esther VOLK, originally >from Pazelva, Lithuania met and married
in Riga around 1890. Esther's two sisters also left Pazelva and married in
Riga. Esther's sister Belle/Bluma married a man named RUDNITZKY also >from
Svencionys. Esther's sister Mary married a man named SOHOR.

Can anyone tell me whether the New York Public Library system has old issues of the Jewish Daily Forward? My grandfather once mentioned an article about my great-grandmother in the Yiddish language newspaper in the 1930's, and I would like to find it. I appreciate any suggestions anyone has. Thank you.

POMPAN - Buchach, Brezhany; WEIDLER #galicia

Christine Weidler <cweidler@...>
 

My greatgrandmother was born in Vienna. But I have found that her father
Schmerl POMPAN was a son of Moishe Aaron and Beile Pompan, born in Buchach,
Galicia/Poland/Ukraine in the mid 1800's. Another son, Beryl, moved to
Brezhany, Galicia. Another son moved to Romania. Other four children
unknown.

I am also looking for the origins of my WEIDLER greatgrandfather. His
generation seems to be the first in Vienna. So I am hunting for Weidlers
any where else.

Thanks.
