Surnames KULTON & DEKOVEN #general

Steve Orlen
 

Dear Cousins,

I'm interested in the derivation of the surnames KULTON & DEKOVEN. I
couldn't find either in my Beider books. Both names probably come
from Ukraine, & I know that DEKOVEN wasn't changed.

I have an ancestor whose first name is listed in various records as Yevzor
or Evzor or Ozer. I have never seen this name before. He was >from
Slutsk, Belarus. Does anyone know a Hebrew or English equivalent for this
name? I'm assuming that this is a Russian variation.

Thanks.

Even prior to attending the conference in Philadelphia, I knew

incorrectly I was pronouncing them! Is there a resource on
JewishGen or any other website that lists them and includes the
phonetic pronunciation? Such a guide would, I believe, be very
helpful to those of us without familiarity of the Polish language.

Judi,

Pllease try to use one of the following guides:

Re: Given name "MYSL" #general

I just wanted to remark that in Russian, "Mysl" means "thought."

But the spelling could stand for the "Meisel," as Roberta Sheps suggested.

To add fuel to the fire, it seems very incongruous to say that someone was
born in 1894 in Warsaw, Russia. However, there was no Poland >from 1795 to
1918, so the very Polish cities of Warsaw or Lodz were not in Poland per
se in 1894.
I have noticed common misconception as to the disappearance of Poland >from
the history >from 1795 till its rebirth in 1918.

On May 24, 1825, Russian Emperor, Nicholas I, was coronated as the King of
Poland, thus the official last Polish King was Nicholas II till his
abdication on March 15, 1917.
With assuming the title of the King of Poland (and amongst the others, title
of Grand Duke of Lithuania, Finland and Courland) Russian rulers have
granted to those territories full, semi or quasi autonomous status.

BTW, Warszawa was also known as Warszawa, even during the Russian rule

Paris, France Search w/Lodz Connection #lodz #poland

Ann Linder
 

I'm trying to track down an aunt in Paris, France.
The aunt's name was BELLA PEERENBAM. (or a variation of that; perhaps
with an initial "B" as in Beerenbam)

She was born in Lodz, is related to Kapelusz family, survived World
War II in France. Her last known address was 22tev Rue Ledion, Paris
14e. She and my mother corresponded after the war.

I don't speak or read French. This search will be a hard one for me.
Can anyone assist on this one?
Thanks.
