Re: English name Lucy-Yiddish/Hebrew name what? #general

MBernet@...
 

In a message dated 9/1/2009 10:51:50 P.M. Eastern Daylight Time,
rsheps@... writes:
"Can anyone suggest an original name in Yiddish or Hebrew for the English
"Lucy"? A cousin of my father's was named Lucille, and a search further
back in the family has turned up a "Lucy". I cannot believe that "Lucy",
born in the Ukraine in the nineteenth century could have been so named. I
suspect that the person who originally supplied the information was giving
the name that would have been used in North America. It would be nice to
be able to link up these two women. "

Alexander Beider has Lutsie as a main female listing in his Dictionary of
Ashkenazic Given Names. The listing includes Lucia, Lu[e]tse, a Jewish
woman in Nurnberg in 1298 (lamed-vav-tzadi-alef), and various variants
into the 17th century. Puzzling, he states that the Lutsie form was unknown
after the 16th century and "was never brought to Eastern Europe" [>from
central Europe].

Perhaps a more likely origin in this case might be Lyube, to my ears a less
rare name among Jews in Eastern Europe.

Beider emphasizes the name's Latin origin. I am tempted to assume that
your Ukrainian cousin's parents may have been well read and chose the
Lucia name >from their reading matter.

Need Gravestone photo in Colchester, CT please #general

Dayna <zoeys_mom@...>
 

I've been trying to figure out the connection between 2 MINTZ families
in Colchester, CT for some time now. I recently connected with another
MINTZ researcher (through a photo I'd posted on Flickr) and we're hoping
to prove our theory of brotherly connection between her relative and mine
with a father's name which is hopefully written on the gravestone.

Please contact me off list if you can take a photo at Ahavas Achim
Cemetery in Colchester, CT. (on Taintor Hill Road, Colchester CT 06415,
Directions: Route 84 East to Route 2 to Exit 18; left onto Middletown
Road; left onto Cabin Road; right onto Taintor Hall Road; cemetery will
be on the left.) I do have the exact location of the graves.

Thank you!

Re: reverse JRI-PL indexes of LDS films? #poland

Nicole Heymans <nheymans@...>
 

If you select data type = "any field" and enter the film number the
results window will give you the number of records (assuming the film
number was entered in the db). However clicking on the "List n
records >from ....." button produces an error message "you cannot
search for microfilm numbers". But at least this procedure should
inform you whether the film of interest to you has been indexed or
not. (And if not, you might consider offering to index it....)

Nicole Heymans, Brussels, Belgium

MODERATOR'S NOTE: The best way to find out whether particular LDS
films have been indexed is to check the "Your Town" pages, which
include the status of indexing for LDS films as well as records
in the Polish State Archive.
