"Ga'on" is actually the Hebrew noun GA'ON, meaning in this context
"Excellence." So the Title is roughly equivalent to "His Excellency"
or "Your Excellency."
What Judy says goes against my (and I am sure a lot of other people's)
intuition, as I always understood the meaning of "the Vilna Ga'on" or
"The Ga'on >from Vilna" as "The Genius >from Vilna" .
I think "Genius" is what people had intended, when referring to the seven
year old who gave a complicated discourse in Jewish Law on the pulpit in
the Great Synagogue of Vilna; and grew >from there to be a scholar of a
standard of learning that Jewish history hadn't seen for many generations.

Thank You for TITOW help #general

PJS Enterprises
 

Dear JewishGenners,

Thank you to everyone who responded to my request for help. I wanted
to let you know I made contact with some TITOW relatives. It is all
very exciting to know there's more family out there. We've been
emailing back and forth, filling in gaps and gathering more family
history.

KLEIN, YANKELOVITCH of Cleveland 1910s onward, MN, too. #general

Gabor Zsolnay <gmz262@...>
 

This is a needle in a haystack,but possibly your grandfather or
great-grandfather...Joseph YANKELOVITCH, born between 1882-1892 in
Lithuania (in or near Nienstadt or Kaunas/Kovno), came to the US in 1902,
first settling in St. Paul MN, then, after 1911 moving to Cleveland, Ohio.
Supposedly, he changed his name to Joseph KLEIN when he moved to Cleveland.
He may have been married to a woman with a maiden name of FEIT.

Does this ring any bells?

Sincerely,

Carol Adler Zsolnay at gmz262@...

Bohemia and Moravia searchers #general

Anne F. Lee <AnneLee1@...>
 

At the Jewish Genealogy Seminar in LA (July 1998) about 15 people who are
searching for family in Bohemia and Moravia got together to exchange
information. I want to thank Susan Boyer for helping me set up the meeting
in LA as well as all who came.

At this time we are setting up an e-mail only address list of all who are
searching in Bohemia/Moravia.

This will not be a formal SIG or moderated discussion group. Rather, I will
maintain a list of names and e-mail addresses which I will distribute to
everyone on the list on a periodic basis. Each person on the list will
then be responsbile for keeping the list so they themselves can send out
whatever messages/requests (about searching in the Bohemia/Moravia area)
they want to send to the others.

We invite anyone who is interested in Bohemia/Moravia to join us. Please
contact me.

I'm just curious to know if there is enough interest in forming a local

Kobrin, Belarus - Yizkor Book in English #belarus

shiller@...
 

Hi David et al,

About a year ago I was able to borrow the English version of the Book of
Kobrin through Interlibrary Loan >from the public library. It took about 3
weeks to get it and I was able to renew the loan period because in her
original request, the librarian asked for renewal permission >from the
lending library.

Sefer Kobrin was really fascinating. I went through it with a friend for
whom I was doing the research. His family was mentioned many times. Of
course, the nature of any Yizkor book is to mention everyone in town.
