Origin of certain name combinations #hungary

Miriam.Rubin@...
 

Does anybody have a logical explanation why the following name
combinations 'went together'?

- Ithamar Ephraim
- Yechiel Mechel
- Tzvi Aryeh
- Levi Yitzchok

I am aware that if a righteous person had these names, the name was given
over to the next generation, however
I would like to know the ORIGINAL origin >from where these derivatives were
paired together.
Thank you.

Mielec cemeteries in NYC #galicia

Joyce Field
 

Caryn Leifer provided important information today on the Mielec
cemeteries in the NYC area, located on Pitkin Avenue between 80 and
84 Streets in Ozone Park, Queens, Mokom Shalom, Arcadia and Bayside.

What is needed now are volunteers in the Spring, Summer, and early
Fall to go to these cemeteries to photograph the matzevot and index
the information, submitting the photos and data to JewishGen's
Online Worlwide Burial Registy (JOWBR). All the information for this
searchable database is donated to us. We can provide translation
assistance of the inscriptions on the tombstones, so don't let this
deter you. JewishGen has no staff to go to cemeteries and index the
burial records. We rely on individuals who are dedicated to
preserving Jewish history to provide this data.

The searchable database is at
http://www.jewishgen.org/databases/cemetery/. Information on forms
and procedures for submitting material is at
http://www.jewishgen.org/databases/Cemetery/JOWBRinstructions.htm.

If you want to see which cemeteries and landsmanschaft plots have
been indexed, please check the cemetery inventory list at
http://www.jewishgen.org/databases/Cemetery/tree/CemList.htm.

Researching BORGER family from Rozwadow #galicia

Miriam Lampert <miriamlampert75@...>
 

I am researching the BORGER family >from Rozwadow. I
know that my great-great grandfather, Moshe (Menachem)
BORGER, who was married to Chana Freya PADAWER, lived
in Rozwadow and had 4 children (Shayndel, Pearl,
Chajcia and Hershel (Herman)). I believe that they
probably got married in the late 1870s/early 1880s.

I have tried searching for information about the
BORGER family on the various databases on the
JewishGen website and have not had much luck. If
anybody has any connection with this family name I
would be grateful for any information that they could
offer.

I know that Chana Freya PADAWER/BORGER died in Mielec
so the family might also have connections in Mielec.

Many thanks

In late 1908, my great grandfather, Mr Franz GINSBERG,
MLA, became a director of Kolmanskop Diamond Company,
based in Cape Town. Its shareholders included PC GRANT
and Grant (Broker), both of Adderly Street. The
brokers company could well have been called "Grant,

Does anyone have any information about the Grants or
their activities?

Yizkor Book Project November 2005 update #southafrica

Joyce Field
 

We are again approaching the end of a year, which has been busy and
successful for the Yizkor Book Project, but we are not sitting idly
by. We continually add new translations, thanks to our dedicated
donors and project coordinators and our remarkable volunteer staff.

In November we put online 8 updates and 5 new entries, which are all
accessible >from http://www.jewishgen.org/Yizkor/translations.html.
New translations are flagged for a month to make it easy for you to
identify them. If you are looking for a translation, the place to
check is the alphabetical listing at
http://www.jewishgen.org/Yizkor/translations.html.

We received an encouraging response >from last month's appeal for more
translations >from the Pinkas HaKehillot series, and we repeat that
request this month. Each volume covers a specific geographical area:
Germany, Greece, Hungary, Latvia & Estonia, Libya, Lithuania,
Netherlands, Poland (7 volumes), Romania (2 volumes), Slovakia,
Yugoslavia. There is a separate "chapter" for each town. We are
desirous of getting the translated tables of contents for the
following Pinkasim online: Netherlands, Libya, and Germany. Contact
me privately if you have any questions or if you can translate >from
these Hebrew volumes, which are very important as they contain
information on many communities too small to have an entire yizkor
book devoted to them.

New entries:

-Alytus, Lithuania: Lite, volume 1
-Kedainiai, Lithuania: Lite, volume 1
-Krekanava, Lithuania: Yahadut Lita
-Obeliai ("Abel"), Lithuania: Pinkas HaKehillot Lita
-Saukotas, Lithuania: Pinkas HaKehillot Lita

Updates:

-Bedzin, Poland
-Brest, Poland
-Chelm, Poland
-Czestochowa, Poland
-Dabrowa, Poland
-Holocaust in Belarus
-Krynki, Poland
-Novogrudok, Belarus

Please consider making a donation to the yizkor book translation
projects listed at
http://www.jewishgen.org/JewishGen-erosity/v_projectslist.asp?project_cat=23
and include a generous contribution to JewishGen, which provides the
infrastructure to make this project possible. Your contribution will
help pay for the translation of these books, making their information
available to all researchers.
