Pls connect if you have interest in Margareten/Marghita in Romania. The Jewish cemetery has been grandly restored and matzeva of Rav Yehoshua Aharon Tzvi Weinberger aka The Mahariatz is in wonderful ohel (special building for grave of great Rabbis to preserve). How do we form a group? 
Kindest regards, Elisabeth

My mother’s name was Ida. She was born in the US in 1915 and I heard her Hebrew name as both Chaike and Chaya. My granddaughter is name after her as Chaya.

I am not familiar with the Zablotow records, but a spike in a number of deaths is and indication of a local/area pandemic, most often cholera. I’ve seen it in several Polish towns in the late 1840's (do not recall the names now). There were something like 2-5 death records for each birth, and the cause of death was clearly stated.

Hi Friends, The message that I sent on 3/29/20 was misinterpreted. I just want to know about the Anschel Burial Society at Mach Peleh Cemetery. You see I already saw the area where my ancestors are buried because a kind Rabbi on the grounds escorted me there. It was surrounded by a small fence with a sign that displayed the name of the society. Thank you. Suzanne Esserman M.D.

Recently Avrami Groll told us that all JewishGen Discussion Group and SIG group messages have been archives in this new system. I went to https://groups.jewishgen.org/g/main/topics and searched for "recte." The "r" in your surname stands for recte. f stand for false. v stands for vel. You can also search for "false" and "vel." This has been discussed over the years relating to Galician record.

Re: Birthplace vs. emigration place vs. port of origin for destination in US? #general

On a related note, I found on Ancestry.com there have been errors in the "Record" transcription from scanned documents. For one of my relatives the town Ostrog was listed as the place she lived in before departure but the record listed it as her birthplace. . Good thing I looked at the original document and didn't rely on the transcribed record, as the misinformation would have pushed me in the wrong direction.

Re: Name IDA #names

Ury Link
 

Dear Genners

The given famine name Ida get out from the Hebrew Biblical name Jehudith (Yudith) יהודית.
The name Ida was used in the German countries in the Middle Ages,
From them it go over to the Jews that live there.
You have a lot of variation of this name ,like Ide,Yte,Yute, and more.
The name Ida have nothing to do with the name Chaike.
Not every combination of names is the same variant of the first of second name.
Best regards

Another great source of information on this topic -- only centered in Detroit -- is "The Purple Gang: Organized Crime in Detroit 1910-1945" by Paul R. Kavieff (2000). Found my husband's grandfather in it. Fascinating. A good read! 


Re: Surnames separated by a small r #galicia

This subject has come up before in the discussion group.  You can do a search on the word "recte" in the discussion group archives and see 50+ messages.

r = recte   It means the correct name, in your example, is Kessler

The archived messages discuss possible reasons for this type of name change.

The Hebrew name of someone who took the English name Ida might have been Eta, Ita, or Chayah, or their derivatives.
