Re: Jewish name Dove #names

Karen,
in the modern Hebrew it is rather popular name.
In the dictionary it is signed as "being re-newed or translated."
I don't think it is from the Bible.
It means "bear". In Russian it is connected sometimes to the name Michael, Misha. Look in the family may be he was mentioned as it.

Moses,

The card is actually a residency card from the city of Posen.
I find the German Wikipedia to be useful to find these towns from Prussian Poland. A search by the German name will generally bring up the page for the Polish town that used to have that name. Carlsruhe o/s is now called Pokój. See:
https://de.wikipedia.org/wiki/Pok%C3%B3j

Militsch is now called Milicz. See: https://de.wikipedia.org/wiki/Milicz
o/s is short for Upper Silesia.

I hope this helps,

Subject: [JewishGen.org] Jewish name Dove #names

I'm sorry if this sounds silly but in researching a brother of the ancestor, his lists his father's name as Dove on the death certificate.  There is nothing on the tombstone.  I don't see the name anywhere else in the family and the family I believe is from Poland.  I've not seen Dove as a name before and was wondering if it is short, Yiddish, or nickname for something else.  He lists his mother as Annie which 2 out of the 4 sons have daughter's named Fannie.

Thanks,

Re: Descendants of Dutch Jews. Any interest? #general

R Jaffer
 

In response to Nick's inability to locate Abraham VOGEL in the U.S., I was informed by an archivist in Amsterdam that it was common for the Dutch who emigrated to the U.K. and U.S. after name adoption to revert to using a patronymic type of surname in their new countries. He helped me learn that my husband's LEVY family were RICHTERS and the EZEKIEL families were POSNANKIS. Once I had the correct name adoption records, I could then search online records myself. While Abraham VOGEL emigrated about thirty years later than my husband's families, it is still possible that the surname he used once coming to the U.S. was his father's given name, not VOGEL.

The first and third cities appear to be Karlsruhe (formally spelled Carlsruhe) in the Federal State of Baden-Würtemberg. Can you provide a link to where you found this census?

Carlsruhe is the name of several locations:

  • Karlsruhe, a city in Germany (Karlsruhe was formerly Carlsruhe)
  • Carlsruhe O/S and Bad Carlsruhe, German names of the village Pokój in Poland

 

Looks most likely to be the latter as this is in SW Poland.

 

Milicz (GermanMilitsch) is a town in Lower Silesian Voivodeship, in south-western Poland. It is the seat of Milicz County and of Gmina Milicz.

I wonder, are you looking for the 'Szasz family--Zahava Szasz-----  famous book 'Thorns in the Tokaj Valley?--From Abaujszanto Hungary?

She lives in New York and her sister is in Israel

Zahava --I had the honour to meet her personally --is an exceptionally fine, superb Lady--her books are 'treasured'--

She/her family lived in the same street in Abaujszanto -Hungary--as my Grandparents---Biederman ( Grunwald)

Best wishes to you and to Everybody at JewishGen.

Hello Moses,
the first and third entry will be Carlsruhe /S (Schlesien = Silesia) which is quite likely to be Pokoj in Silesia now; the second entry ist Militzsch - now Milicz in Lower-Silesia. With this information you will easily find the places in any online map.
These were easy to read, but normally a wider clipping would be helpful to compare the individual handwriting of letters for transcribing.

If you need to be teached, I do it for free. I am jewish and teaching German at one university. It was my dream to teach jews online.

My ancestors were of Spanish and Portuguese ancestry (Nunes Cardozo, De Chaves, Nunes Martinez, Gomez de Costa), many of whom came to London from Amsterdam in the late 17th / early 18 centuries.  I would certainly be interested in such a group.

my theory is that it reads sane Hebrew yalin .but that is just a possibility
it could be that Sana was a nickname for yalin

Lithuanian Revision Lists #lithuania

Jeremy Lichtman
 

Does anyone know what criteria would result in a person being removed from a revision list?

i.e. is it possible for somebody to be listed in a list dated 1907 who had left Lithuania circa 1890 (rest of the family were still resident)?

My understanding is that changing official residence from one town to another was a nuisance, but would that still apply with regards to immigration?

Dov - without the e on the end is a common personal name,   It means "Bear"   In Yiddish "Berl"
I guess the 3 on the end is an endearment of Dov
