Name changes #southafrica

Colin Plen
 

I have not come across many name changes but lots and lots of name =
alterations.I know of two brothers whose surnames are respectively =
orleow and orelowitz. The name Gilchrist has already been documented.
The names Alswang - Olswang - Olschwang - are all different familties =
but I think must have a common ancestor.

Re: Name changes in South Africa #southafrica

Louis Zetler <zetler@...>
 

I have never studied the laws to the change of names in South Africa, but in
about the 1890's it appears to have been quite an easy exercise. Tradition
has it that the brother of my mother's maternal grandfather bought a
business known as Berkowitz Bicycles or something similar and instead of
changing the name of the business, he changed his surname to Berkowitz. He
told his brother that he had changed his surname and so my ggf also arrived
as Berkowitz. Now I am still trying to establish what the original surname
was!

Catskills information #yiddish

Jonina Duker <jonina.duker@...>
 

For any of you researching performers who also played in the Catskills,
you may want to check out a Catskills research institute run by Phil
Brown, of Brown University (and, not by coincidence, including
information about Brown's Hotel!). I am not on the web so haven't had a
chance to check. It should be findable by going to

http://www.brown.edu/Research/Catskills_Institute/

and searching for Catskills.
Good Shabbos in advance.

Shtetl based burial societies. #general

Jerome Seligsohn <jselig1315@...>
 

As we have noted in past messages we have inferred
that the interred are not necessarily descended from
the shtetl sponsored site. I have gone out of my way
recently when researching landsmanshaften to bore
myself examining constitutions of the landsmanshaften.
They might be explicit about what constitutes an
eligible Jew or forbidding making payments outside the
United States but they do not mention [so far] that
the member descend >from the shtetl which has given its
name to the organization. Then ,of course, the spouse
would not be excluded if they were married to the
original member. Therefore we might safely assume that
the origin of the interred might not necessarily match
the shtetl title of the society.

Bielsk Podlaski ShtetLinks update #poland

Andrew Blumberg <ajb61@...>
 

This is an update on the status of the Bielsk ShtetLinks page located at

http://www.shtetlinks.jewishgen.org/Bielsk_Podlaski/

The site now contains a listing of all legible headstones in the old
Jewish cemetery of Bielsk. There are also a number of photos of
surviving headstones. It is expected that in the next few weeks there
will be a photo of every surviving headstone.

We have added the 1930 business directory pages covering Bielsk, and a
brief introduction to the history of Bielsk. The site contains other
source material listing natives of Bielsk including materials >from the
Bielsker Bruderlicher Untershtitzungs Verein. A number of photos of the
town have also been added. Special thanks to Mark Gordon, Mindy Crystel
Gross, and Brad Gordon for contributing materials to the site.

The site contains a section for photos of families >from Bielsk, so if
you have photos of your ancestors who came >from Bielsk please email me.

Regards,

Andrew Blumberg

Dachau Yorzait Dates #poland

Daniel Kazez <dkazez@...>
 

I am pleased to announce completion of a project to type all 2380 entries
from "Dachau: Memorial Dates Yorzait of the Martyred Jews of Dachau; Volume
II: Jews Born in Poland." Our thanks to the Jewish Labor Committee for
permission to use this valuable material. Each listing includes these
elements: surname, given name, birth, city of birth, city of residence,
death date. As we take the necessary steps to make this database available
to everyone, it might be of interest to note that a very large number of
cities are included in this document:

My great thanks to those who did all of the work on this project: Jerry
