Claudia,
If you have not already done so, I would post your question to the Rabbinic
SIG since KATZENELLENBOGEN is a very well-known Rabbinic family. I would
also find (possibly through inter-library loan) a copy of Neil Rosenstein's
"The Unbroken Chain" and see if that might have some of your desired
information. Also Neil Rosenstein occasionally contributes to the Jewish
Gen Discussion Archives, so it would be possible to email him. Good luck
with your research.

Luger from Craciunesti #hungary

jyfogel@...
 

Hi i'm doing research in my gggrandfather/mother Jacob Hers Luger &
Rivka Kacz >from Craciunesti and later moved to Teresif as a shochet.
My ggrandfather Chaim Stark(1870-1944) married their daughter
Dina(1877-1944) and since he was not legally allowed to live in
Hungary he adapted a new identity of Bentzi Fogel born to Moishe Fogel
& basi Kacz also of Craciunesti which I believe was family of his
wife. If anyone has more details I would appreciate it. Thanks Jacob

Searching: LECHEM from eastern Poland/western Ukraine #general

Yael Feder
 

I am searching for descendants of the LECHEM family. Town of origin unknown,
assumed to be >from eastern Poland or western Ukraine.

I am not related to the LECHEM family. My search is an effort to give them
something: a photo of a young man signed "B. Lechem" was taken in 1941 in
Kowel/Kovel (formerly Poland, now Ukraine) and given to my grandfather as a
friendship keepsake.

Sadly. it is unlikely that B. LECHEM survived the Kowel ghetto liquidation
but I am hoping there are other LECHEM branches and I can give the photo to
those LECHEM descendants. It is possible, but not assumed, that B. LECHEM
was >from Kowel, because my grandfather was >from Chelm, Poland and he was
living with other men >from Chelm in 1941 in Kowel.

I am not seeking suggestions on where to look, as I've exhausted all those
resources (Facebook genealogy groups, JewishGen record databases, JewishGen
Family Finder, JRI-Poland, Yad Vashem, DNA test sites, etc.) -- rather, I
am hoping that someone reading this email knows someone with the last name
LECHEM whose ancestry is >from eastern Poland or western Ukraine and can put
me in touch with them.

Many thanks,

Re: Help with Naming Conventions #germany

[In local registers] Roman numbers were added to names when more than one
man with the same given name and family name lived in the locality at the
same time. Thus they could be distinguished [>from one another].

Their children of course did not receive a number, when they had different
given names. These numbers were used by all inhabitants.
