My Mom was born Rebecca. That morphed into Becky which then became Beatrice. This was in the USA. So it might help to think of a nickname and follow that chain. Another source of names were famous people

Re: Let me restate my name question Re: Nellie #russia #names

The closest Hebrew name I can think of is Nili - it is in fact an acronym for "Nezach Yisrael lo Yeshaker" a quote from Samuel 1, chapter 15  verse29 and an expression for the eternity of the Jewish People.  The bname was adopted by the Secret Organisation created in 1915        and active during World War 1. Its members in Jewish settlements in Palestine were passing information to the British in Egypt about matters concerning the Ottoman rule.  It was in fact an early attempt to bring about Jewish self rule in Paleatine.  The movement was eventually discovered by the Turks who severely punished its members and also some non-members

Hello,
I agree as well. I have an uncle Sholom who uses the English name Wilfred. Always struck me as kind of arbitrary except I guess Old English meaning of the name Wilfried includes the word peace.

Re: Prohibition Bootleggers and Sacramental Wine "Fake Rabbis" #usa #general

Renée K. Carl
 

Hi Carl
My CARL family in St. Louis operated a bottle recycling business prior to Prohibition, and then ran booze during and after Prohibition - the "after" had to do with avoiding bottle tax. They had LERNER relatives in Boston who were also "bottle recyclers," though I do not know the extent of the Boston family's involvement. I have not seen my family use the sacramental wine clause in their court defense, though I don't think sacramental applied to gin!
Feel free to contact me directly for more details

Re: Name IDA #names

It's the usual story, I think. There isn't always a consistent, logical or rational explanation to why people with a particular Yiddish or Hebrew first name took a particular new English name when they emigrated. Of course, Ita could have become Ida. But Ida could have been anything really,previously. My grandfather's aunt from Lithuania became Fanny in Scotland. (Don't know her original name in Lithuania.) When she later moved to the USA, she became Charlotte! Go figure! There were no strict rules, although it must be one of the most common questions on JewishGen discussion groups over the years.

Perhaps consider taking an entirely different approach via DNA technology.  Do you have access to the DNA test kits such as those sold by Ancestry and 23 and me?  In our extended  family a second cousin did this using the Ancestry kit and found several likely matches and all were found to be  related to us.  Discovered and previously unknown to all of us was that our great grandfather had a brother in New York and had a family.  I believe the connections are made possible through the Ancestry website in a manner that preserves your identity until you allow others to contact you.  Contact was made with  the 'other side' of the family and we were able to fill in some of the missing pieces.    Wish you success on your journey.

some more of those misspelled words"
Renfonter = Rencontre, Renkonter;
Grasen = Grafen;
Reservoeoberteutnant = Reserveoberleutnant;
Staatsanwattschaft = Staatsanwaltschaft;
woraus = worauf;
zurüdgewiesen =  zurueckgewiesen;
Losal = Local;
heinen = seinen;
fam =  kam;
uns = und;
Versahren = Verfahren;

for a program, proximity is not enough. it needs exact spelling.


Re: Translation Request - German #hungary #germany

Reuven Mohr
 

google or any translation program can only work on a regular text. What you have here as a basis is obviously already of a (human less probable) technic translitteration, which created a text with non existant German words.
Grasen Henri Viglia should probably read Grafen=earl, count of whatever noble man;
In additon there are the customs of each language: In German you can use comparative like 'a larger comany' without comparison to anything. It means just a not so small number, maybe 10-20 I would guess, who ate together, among them Lazics, at the Renaissance restaurant.
'Renaissance' is the name of the restaurant=Etablissement=a French word in German for different enterprises.
The rules for a duel prescribe that you have tow honorable assitants. Viglia named to black men, which in his opponents eyes looked like a disgrace, and were turned away by the assistants of Lazics.
When the company wanted to leave the place, they were hold up by Viglia and his two black men. Lazics and and his friend Vecsey were hurt physically and Vecsey used his revolver hand shot Viglia twice in chest and hand. He needed three weeks of treatment. The court decided that Vecsey shot in self defence and closed the file against Vecsey.

Ida can be a modern spelling for Ita, a common Yiddish name, which can go together or without Chaya.

Gayle - I have seen several Nellie used for females names Helen, Ellen or Hannah. With an Ann already in the family I would tend toward the Hellen/Ellen option. Dorann


Re: Yiddish or Hebrew name for IDA #belarus #names

JOSEPH GODELNIK
 

The village of Pruzana belonged to Poland prior to WWII. The form in which you wrote the name corresponds to the translation of the pronunciation in Yiddish. The name is written thus: Prużana. As for the name IDA, the origin of the name is in German and its meaning is "hardworking". As far as I know, there is no alternative in Hebrew.

My mother, Hannah Chait was born in 1913 in Yampol, Ukraine.  Her father Moshe Chait had a sister Rebecca who married Itzak Zeid.  While going through a number of DNA sites I found  connections to various people with Friedel ancestors from Yampol..  If anyone has Friedel ancestors with connections to Chait, Kessel(man) or Zeid/Seid please contact me.

Many thanks and Chag Sameach to all at this difficult time.
