Lublin photographs and tombstones #general

Phyllis Kramer
 

A Polish friend just alerted me that a cache of old negatives, apparently >from a
prewar Jewish photographer, was recently discovered during a house renovation; it
appears that the photographer was Jewish because some descriptions are in Yiddish.
Also many pictures portray Jewish people and events.On this site you'll see some
pictures including tombstones: http://teatrnn.pl/ikonografia/negatywy/kategoria/10

Re: Parka - Woman's Name #general

Stephan Owen Parnes
 

Dear Meron,

Parka is most likely a mispronounced version of Pajke. Pajke (approximately
pronounced PY-KUH) is a nickname for Paje (or Paye).

There is a common similar issue with the nickname Shayke / Shayka (>from Shaya,
which is >from Yeshaya / Yeshayahu), which is often pronounced Shaykie and Sharky.

Paje is connected with the Biblical name Pua

You can see more about this name >from the following result of a search on the

ViewMate Translation Request -- Romanian military document #bessarabia

G Sles
 

Greetings JGenners,

I'd appreciate a direct translation of the handwritten sections of my ggf Yancu (Jacob) SOLOMON's
Romanian military document >from the 1890s.

Here's the upper part of the document:
http://www.jewishgen.org/viewmate/viewmateview.asp?key=23237
- Please include the preprinted words in the sections containing handwriting, as I'm interested in the
personal details and context. 
- Ignore the preprinted paragraphs in small print below the handwritten sections.
- Question: Jacob's father was Herscu, but who or what was Minerve? 

Here's the lower half of the document, the part that has three circular seals stamped on it:
http://www.jewishgen.org/viewmate/viewmateview.asp?key=23238

'Can't wait to find out if Jacob actually served in the army, or if he was in the reserves, or if this was
just a registration form that he had to keep updated. He later served as a civilian with the British
Army during the Boer War in South Africa...and that's a whole 'nother story!

Please reply via ViewMate or privately.

Many thanks in advance for your help.

Skole and Liesberg #galicia

Stuart Ungar
 

I know my grandmother Lena Greenberg (Grunberg) was born in Skole.
Two questions for folks familiar with that region.

1) She was born in Skole Market. Is that a place, building or region of
Skole? Is it still there?

2) Her grandmother was born in Liesberg. Where is that (and where in
relation to Skole)? And is it still named the same?

I eventually want to travel there and am starting to collect information
on the area.

Thank you!
