I looked at the best source for common names of all ethnic groups at:
http://www.babynamer.com/

It usually shows variations of such names as Jacob, etc. I was unable to
find anything like that there, but those that know Hebrew and other Eastern
European languages may have better success.

Udi Cain
 

It seems like the Hebrew name of the son of Abraham: Yitzchak.
English: Isaac.
By the way I have the name Tikla for a woman >from my family who died in the
Holocaust.
I don't know the origin of Tikla.

Udi Cain.

Can anyone tell me what the Hebrew and English equivalent would be for the
name Icchok?

The only difficulty with this name is that you have written it in
conventional Polish phonetics. A Pole reading it would pronounce it as
"Itzkhok", so it is "Yitzhak" in more familiar phonetics -- a Hebrew
name, which has filtered into English as "Isaac".

As a child in Manchester, (in the l930's) I recall my parents speaking
of "Abs" Moss with great respect. The local Jewish community was very proud
of all that he had done. Patricia Marks Pilling

Assuming that there are no connections to Krishna, Wishnia is a Polish name

We also have an instance of "Wishna," or "Vishna" used as a first name
in Mogilev, Belarus. This was the daughter of one of our TALALAY
branches. Born in Mogilev in 1880s. We have not found any similar names
in the TALALAY family, and assume (so far) that this is a name from
Vishna's mother's family. We are not yet aware of a Lithuania connection
for the mother's family, and we have not found any Lithuanian connection
for the TALALAY family.
Thanks to Jerry Esterson for letting our family know it comes >from the

The Yiddish name Vichna, used for women in Lithuania, is linked to the
Hebrew name Yocheved, and there are other Yiddish kinuim for
Yocheved: Iocheved, Iochvel, Vichna, Vichne, Yocha, and
Yucha. Incidentally, the Hebrew name Yocheved formed legal Hebrew
double names with the following Yiddish names in Lithuania: Yacha,
Yachlo, Yachna, Yocha, and Yutlin.

Searching Turkey; USA #general

My finds of the month--likely not new to many people, but
I think they are great resources:

1. For Turkey (and Israel), I am amazed at how
many of my "missing" cousins are listed at:

http://www.icq.com/whitepages/search.html

At the site above, you need not get into the
icq mode of communicating. Instead, you can
simply collect regular e-mail addresses.

2. For the USA, I never cease to be amazed at how
useful this site is. I have used it to find
many missing people!

Research in Poland #galicia

Daniel:
I am intrigued by the message you sent out thru the GG SIG; however I
am puzzled by your reference to the U.S.C. I have a feeling that there
are others like me, so would appreciate an explanation of what it is, and
would suggest you send it out thru lyris.
Thanks,
Ben Karliner <benkarliner@juno.com>
To Ben and others:

"U.S.C." refers to the modern archives of Poland--the place
where birth, marriage, and death records are held for about
the last 100 years. Each city has its own U.S.C. I have
personally visited the U.S.C.s of Lodz and Zgierz. Recently,
I have hired someone to try to get a dozen different records
at the U.S.C. of Czestochowa. My next stop: I need information
from the U.S.C.s of Piotrkow Trybunalski and Lodz. At the "old"
archives (pre 1899) one can browse through the books. At the
U.S.C. this is rarely possible.

Dan

P.S. I believe that it is posting protocol not to mention
researchers by name.
